Harvest Moon ~ Mr. Neil Young

Come a little bit closer

Hear what I have to say

Just like children sleepin

We could dream this night away.

But theres a full moon risin

Lets go dancin in the light

We know where the musics playin

Lets go out and feel the night.

Because Im still in love with you

I want to see you dance again

Because Im still in love with you

On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers

I watched you from afar

When we were lovers

I loved you with all my heart.

But now its gettin late

And the moon is climbin high

I want to celebrate

See it shinin in your eye.

Because Im still in love with you

I want to see you dance again

Because Im still in love with you

On this harvest moon.

Kiss Of Life ~ Sade Adu (Happy Birthday I absolutely LOVE YOU!!!!) :bow:

There must have been an angel by my side

Something heavenly led me to you

Look at the sky

It's the color of love

There must have been an angel by my side

Something heavenly came down from above

He led me to you

He built a bridge to your heart

All the way

How many tons of love inside

I can't say

When I was led to you

I knew you were the one for me

I swear the whole world could feel my heartbeat

When I lay eyes on you

Ay ay ay

You wrapped me up in

The color of love

You gave me the kiss of life

Kiss of Life

You gave me the kiss that's like

The kiss of life

Wasn't it clear from the start

You gave me the kiss of life

"100 Years Ago" - The Rolling Stones

Went out walkin' through the wood the other day

And the world was a carpet laid before me

The buds were bursting and the air smelled sweet and strange

It seemed about a hundred years ago

Mary and I, we would sit upon a gate

Just gazin' at some dragon in the sky

What tender days we had no secrets hid away

Well, it seemed about a hundred years ago

Now all my friends is wearing worried smiles

Living out a dream of what they was

Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?

Went out walkin' through the wood the other day

Can't you see the furs in my forehead?

What tender days, we had no secrets hid away

Now it seems about a hundred years ago

Now if you see me drinkin' bad red wine

Don't worry 'bout this man that you love

Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?

You're gonna kiss and say good-bye, yeah, I warn ya

You're gonna kiss and say good-bye, yeah, I warn ya

You're gonna kiss and say good-bye, oh Lord, I warn ya

Please excuse me while I hide away

Call me lazy bones

Ain't got no time to waste away

Lazy bones ain't got no time to waste away

Don't you think, don't you think, it's just about time to hide away? Yeah, yeah!

Oh kiss me, kiss me

Kiss me baby, good-bye, yeah

Good-bye, yeah, good-bye, yeah, good-bye, yeah

Come on, kiss me

Yeah, your gonna kiss me baby - bye

I warn ya, I warn ya, I warn ya I warn ya, I warn ya!

It's been really cold lately for Georgia, so here's a little warmth...

"Girls In Their Summer Clothes"--Bruce Springsteen

Well, the streetlights shine down on Blessing Avenue

Lovers they walk by, holding hands two by two

A breeze crosses the porch, bicycle spokes spin 'round

My jackets on, I'm out the door

And tonight I'm gonna burn this town down

The girls in their summer clothes

In the cool of the evening light

The girls in their summer clothes, pass me by

A kid's rubber ball smacks

Off the gutter 'neath the lamp light

Big bank clock chimes

Off go the sleepy front porch lights

Downtown the stores alight as the evening's underway

Things been a little tight

But I know their gonna turn my way

And the girls in their summer clothes

In the cool of the evening light

The girls in their summer clothes, pass me by

Frankie's diner, an old friend on the edge of town

The neon sign spinning round

Like a cross over the lost and found

The fluorescent lights flick over Pop's Grill

Shaniqua brings the coffee and asks "Fill?" and says "Penny for your thoughts now my boy, Bill"

She went away, she cut me like a knife

Hello beautiful thing, maybe you could save my life

In just a glance, down here on magic street

Loves a fool's dance

And I ain't got much sense, but I still got my feet

The girls in their summer clothes

In the cool of the evening light

The girls in their summer clothes, pass me by

The girls in their summer clothes

In the cool of the evening light

The girls in their summer clothes, pass me by

Minnie Riperton - Lovin You

Lovin' you is easy 'cause you're beautiful

Makin' love with you is all I want to do

Lovin' you is more than just a dream come true

Everything that I do is out of lovin' you

No one else can make me feel the colors that you bring

Stay with me while we grow old

And we will live each day in springtime

Lovin' you has made my life so beautiful

And every day of my life is filled with lovin' you

Lovin' you I see your soul come shining through

And every time that we ooooh I'm more in love with you

Back When I Was Four - Jeffrey Lewis

Back when I was 4 and I knew the name of every dinosaur

I knew how to read ROM comic books

My babysitter said I was really smart

When the lights went out everything changed

The radio music made me feel strange

And I had a real bad dream about a gorilla in the bathroom

Back when I was 6 I took everything real serious

And I thought that every song that came on the radio

Was referring to strange sexual acts

Because they thought I wouldn't know the facts

And being small is hard and no one ever tells you how

And back when I was 8 I'd sit outside on an old milk crate

And look out at the world from the stoop across the street

The boomboxes and the hot concrete

And every Halloween they hung

A million rubber skeletons across ninth street.

Back when I was 12 or so I swear to god I never felt so low

Everyone but me was making out and eating cookies

I had more than my brain could stand

I threw my life in a garbage can

I felt so weird

I had to disappear

In crying suicide disease.

At 15 getting stoned felt good and it sent me back to childhood

And nothing ever mattered to me more than that.

But then 16 became eclipse

My brain became apocalypse

I was lost and found and I've never been the same.

Back when I was 22 I left the best thing that I knew

and I gave it up for fortune and for fame

I played like I didn't know how

I shocked the world

I wowed the crowd

But I deserved more than what they gave

Back when I was 27 still nothing had been forgiven

Clay turns into rock and rock just sits

So sitting on a crowded beach

I'd pretend I was a leach

And stick to things here and there for a little bit

Back when I was 31 I knew I'd become what I'd become

Nothing left to reveal

And nowhere else to turn

So shocked and withered dumb and bitter

And in need of a babysitter

I'd gladly let my hand fall off and burn burn burn

Back when I turned the big 4-0 I realized just how much there was to go

And I started to think that being alone forever

Wasn't where it was at

So I pulled my head out of the window

And I taught myself how to love real fast

I started talking about painting

With a woman in the laundromat

Back when I was 50 and my first wife had just left me

I felt okay and I sang my daughter

Funny little songs

And just when I thought the best was past

I fell in love for real at last

And it didn't even matter that it had taken me so long

Back when I was 63 the public rediscovered me

My comic books and records had all become rare cult-collector items

Both my parents were deceased

So they didn't see my records get re-released

And I got a dog for the first time in my life

Back when I was 74 my dog died and I got two more

I still felt really good about my daughter

And also about my girlfriend

And I'd sing and draw a little bit

But mostly I'd wake up early and sit

And hang out with the puppies and wish that I could live forever

Back when I was 87 my grandson had just turned eleven

My woman was dead

And my dogs were getting pretty old

My body didn't work quite like it should

But overall things were pretty good

I was getting decent royalties from the reissued comic books and records

Back when I was 106

My only friend

Was one goldfish

Everyone I ever knew was dead and gone

The goldfish never had a name

And the neighbors thought I was insane

And I flushed it down the toilet when I saw it floating upside down*

Back when I was 128 I would sit outside on an old milk crate

And look out at the world from the stoop across the street

The boomboxes and the hot concrete

And every Halloween they hung

A million rubber skeletons across 9th street

Every Halloween they hung

A million rubber skeletons

Every Halloween they hung

A million rubber skeletons

Every Halloween they hung

A million rubber skeletons

Teddy Picker ~ Arctic Monkeys

Despair up to the point where they provoke

The punchline before they have told the joke,

Can see your desperation to be seen,

Staring at the television screen.

Despair up to the point where they provoke

You to tell the ******* punchline before you have told the joke.

Sorry sunshine, it doesn't exist,

It wasn't in the top 100 list.

And it's the thousandth time and it's even bolder,

Don't be surprised when you get bent over,

They told ya, but you were dying for it.

She saw it and she grabbed it and it wasn't what it seemed,

The kids all dream of making it, whatever that means.

Another variation on a theme,

A tangle on the television and the magazine.

D'you reckon that they do it for a joke?

D'you reckon that they make 'em take an oath?

That says "We are defenders

Of any poseur or professional pretender around."

When did your list replace the twist and turn?

And the fist, replace the kiss?

Don't concern us with your bollocks, I don't want your prayers,

Save it for the morning after.

And it's the thousandth time and it's even bolder,

Don't be surprised when you get bent over,

He told ya, that you were gagging for it.

Lets have a game on the Teddy Picker,

Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?

Already thick and you're getting thicker.

Lets have a game on the Teddy Picker,

Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?

Already thick and you're getting thicker.

presuming that all things are equal,

Who'd want to be men of the people

When there's people like you?

:bow:

Travis - Sing

Baby, you've been going so crazy

Lately, nothing seems to be going right

Solo, why do you have to get so low

You're so...

You've been waiting in the sun too long

But if you sing, sing, sing, sing, sing, sing

For the love you bring won't mean a thing

Unless you sing, sing, sing, sing

Colder, crying on your shoulder

Hold her, and tell her everythings gonna be fine

Surely, you've been going to early

Hurry, cause no one's gonna be stopped

But if you sing, sing, sing, sing, sing, sing

For the love you bring won't mean a thing

Unless you sing, sing, sing, sing

Baby, there's something going on today

But I say nothing, nothing, nothing,

Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

{Chorus}

Guitar Man ~ Bread

(but I'm listening to Cake's version)

Who draws the crowd and plays so loud,

Baby it's the guitar man.

Who's gonna steal the show, you know

Baby it's the guitar man,

He can make you laugh, he can make you cry

He will bring you down, then he'll get you high

Somethin' keeps him goin', miles and miles a day

To find another place to play.

Night after night who treats you right,

Baby it's the guitar man

Who's on the radio, you go listen

To the guitar man

Then he comes to town, and you see his face,

And you think you might like to take his place

Somethin' keeps him driftin' miles and miles away

Searchin' for the songs to play.

Then you listen to the music and you like to sing along,

You want to get the meaning out of each and ev'ry song

Then you find yourself a message and some words to call your own

And take them home.

He can make you love, he can get you high

He will bring you down, then he'll make you cry

Somethin' keeps him movin', but no one seems to know

What it is that makes him go.

Then the lights begin to flicker and the sound is getting dim

The voice begins to falter and the crowds are getting thin

But he never seems to notice he's just got to find

Another place to play,

Anyway got to play, anyway got to play.

Just give me a steel guitar, a glass of wine

And let me drink to a love I thought was mine

A love I thought was true to me

But now I'm drinkin' to her memory

A steel guitar and a glass of wine

While my tears they glisten and the candles shine

Oh candle-glow, oh candle bright

Tell me who she holds tonight

And bring me wine

And make the music mine

Play another set

So that I'll forget

And one more thing before I go

Here's a secret, I still love her so

Ryan Adams~Magnolia Mountain

I want to go to Magnolia Mountain

And lay my weary head down

Down on the rocks

On the mountain my savior made

Steady my soul and ease my worry

Hold me when I rattle like a hummingbird hummin'

Tie me to the rocks on the mountain my savior made

Lie to me

Sing me a song

Sing me a song until the morning comes

If the morning comes, will you lie to me

Will you take me to your bed

Will you lay me down

Till I'm heavy like the rocks on the riverbed

That my savior made

I want to be the bluebird singing

Singing to the roses in her yard

The roses in her yard her father grew for her

It's been raining that Tennessee honey

So long I got too heavy to fly

Ain't no bluebird ever gets too heavy to sing

Lie to me

Sing me a song

Sing me a song until the morning comes

And if the morning don't come, will you lie to me

Will you take me to your bed

Will you lay me down

Till I'm heavy like the rocks in the riverbed

That my savior made

We burned the cotton fields down in the valley

And ended up with nothing but scars

The scars became the lessons that we gave to our children after the war

But there ain't nothing but the truth up on the Magnolia Mountain

Where nobody ever dies

Steady your soul and ease your worry

They got a room for you

Lie to me like I lie to you

Calm me down until the morning comes

And if the morning don't come

Lie to me

Will you take me to your bed

Will you lay me down

All heavy like the rocks in the riverbed

That my savior made

For us

Flight Of The Concords - Think, Think About It

Children on the streets using guns and knives

Taking drugs and each other’s lives

Killing each other using knives and forks

And calling each other names like dork

There’s people on the street getting diseases from monkeys

Yeah that’s what I said, their getting diseases from monkeys

Whys this happening, please, whose been touching these monkeys

Leave these poor sick monkeys alone

There sick, they’ve got problems enough as it is

A man is lying on the street, some punk has chopped off his head

And I’m the only one who stops to see if he’s dead, aaoohhh

Turns out he’s dead

That’s why I’m singing, Aaaaoooh what is wrong with the world today?

What’s wrong with the world today, *mumbles* never said nothings wrong with it

Uooo, what is wrong with the world today?

Think about it, think about it, think, think about it

Good cops get framed and put into a can

And all the money that we’re making is going to the maaan

What man, whose the man, when’s a man a man, why’s it so hard to be a man

Am I a man? Yes, technically, yes…

Oohh, come on, sont zootka they’re turning kids into slaves

They’re turning kids into slaves just to make cheaper sneakers

But what’s the real cost, ‘cause the sneakers don’t seem that much cheaper

Why are we still paying so much for sneakers when you got little kid slaves making them

What are your overheads?

Well, at the end of your life, you are lucky if you die

Sometimes I wonder why I would even try

Why try

I saw a man lying on the street half dead

He had knives and forks sticking out of his leg

He said, Ahh ahh ahh ahhhhhhhhwww

Can somebody get the knife and fork out of my leg, please

Ooh, could somebody please remove these cutleries from my knees

Yeah yeeeahhh

This is where we break it down

This is where we break it down

We’ll break it down

What are they doing, their breaking it down

What do they do, and now their keeping it funky

Just having a funky jam and then we’re going to drop the beat

And then we’ll bring it back *wails* Up

Wah wah wah waaah!

*Both go to town with the wailing*

Then we’ll take it low

Fading out, fading out

We’re talking about the issues, but we’re keeping it funky

We’re fading out, we’re just fading out

Why they getting quiet, they’re just fading out

*monkey noises*

Stop touching that monkey
