I met a fan dancer

Down in south side Birmingham

She was running from a fat man

Selling salvation in his hand

Now he's trying to save me

Well I'm doing all right

The best that I can

Just another fallen angel

Trying to get through the night

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher

Step by step, rung by rung climbing Jacob's Ladder

"Jacob's Ladder" ~ Huey Lewis

She walked in wearing stiletto boots

First woman, wedding, then honey moon

This girl that I thought I knew so well

didn't know where until we're at the hotel and,

We're on the dancefloor,

By the seashore

She said "these nights we dance together,

Is what I live for" I said

"what about before,

Before these nights?"

She said "Ask me no questions and

I'll tell you no lies"

I said "what about tomorrow?"

She said "what about tonight?

trust me baby, it'll be alright"

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship.

My senses have been stripped,

May hands can't feel to grip,

My toes too numb to step,

Wait only for my bootheels to be wandering.

I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade,

Into my own parade.

Cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go under it.

Bob Dylan - Mr. Tambourine Man

The smell of soap and cigarettes

A litterbin of social debts

I never learnt I never learn

Youve got to laugh I just get burned

Head in a vice - do it up tight

Bullets you bite - never tasted so nice

This is your life - would you like another slice?

Shockaholic

So bored of it

You cant stop it

Shockaholic

I c.u.r.l. myself into a ball

And then you kick me down the hall

I never learnt I never learn...

Head in a vice...

Shockaholic...

Shockaholic

Shockaholic

Chronic

Shocka holic.

Yo pretty ladies around the world

Got a weird thing to show you

so tell all the boys and girls

Tell your brother, your sister, and your mama too

cuz we're about to go down

and you know just what to do

wave your hands in the air like you don't care

glide by the people as they start to look and stare

Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mama

come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody says

when you hear the call you've got to get it underway

Word up it's the code word

No matter where you say it, you know that you'll be heard

Word Up ~ Cameo (Gun, Korn etc.)

Word Up: guitar

I had intended my Word Up to be "terminal", but then the server went down on me (oo..er...missus, titter ye not) again. Thanks to Levis :bow: for her timely intervention in providing the lyric to "Shockaholic".

Anyway, I guess the new Word Up is now "guitar". Is that right?

"Good Guys & Bad Guys" - Camper Van Beethoven

Well there are good guys and there are bad guys

And there are crooks and criminals

There are doctors and there are lawyers

And there are folks like you and me

So let's get high while the radio's on

Just relax and sing a song

Drive your car up on the lawn

Let me play your guitar

Well, this here verse is for the people in Russia

Though it is a long long way away

They couldn't hear this song in Russia

But couldn't understand the words anyway

So let's get high while the radio's on

Just relax and sing a song

Drive your car up on the lawn

Let me play your guitar

So just be glad you live in America

Just relax and be yourself

Cuz if you didn't live here in America

You'd probably live somewhere else

So let's get high while the radio's on

Just relax and sing a song

Drive your car up on the lawn

Let me play your guitar

Word up: "trumpet"

ABSOLUTELY SWEET MARIE - Bob Dylan :bow:

Well, your railroad gate, you know I just can't jump it

Sometimes it gets so hard, you see

I'm just sitting here beating on my trumpet

With all these promises you left for me

But where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?

Well, I waited for you when I was half sick

Yes, I waited for you when you hated me

Well, I waited for you inside of the frozen traffic

When you knew I had some other place to be

Now where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?

Well, anybody can be just like me, obviously

But then, now again, not too many can be like you, fortunately.

Well, six white horses that you did promise

Were fin'ly delivered down to the penitentiary

But to live outside the law, you must be honest

I know you always say that you agree

But where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?

Well I don't know how it happened

But the river-boat captain he knows my fate

But ev'rybody else, even yourself

They're just gonna have to wait.

Well, I got the fever down in my pockets

The Persian drunkard, he follows me

Yes, I can take him to your house but I can't unlock it

You see, you forgot to leave me with the key

Oh, where are you tonight, sweet Marie ?

Now, I been in jail when all my mail showed

That a man can't give his address out to bad company

And now I stand here lookin' at your yellow railroad

In the ruins of your balcony

Wond'ring where you are tonight, sweet Marie ?

word up: curl

What´s the problem with that word, by the way? :P
