Five Pound Box of Money

Pearl Bailey

Hey Santa Claus

You want to make me happy this year?

Listen to me, honey

Give Pearl something that would be of some use to me

Like a five pound box of money

Now there’s a little gift

That’s loaded with

Lots of sentiment

See, when I get blue, Santa

I’m gonna think of you

But at the same time have a little change to pay my rent

Now, money isn’t everything

There’s no two ways about it

But while we’re here, Santa dear

It’s much better with it than without it

So really, I could be real good

And not do nothin’ funny

If you do like I ask you

Stop by right on Christmas night

And try me, try me, try me on that money

Just try me, honey

Santa, can you hear me?

Have you listened to everything I’ve been asking you about?

Listen honey, Santa dear,

The New Year would be so bright and sunny

Just bring me that simple thing that I’ve been speaking to you about

And bring me a five pound box of money

That’s all, that’s all

It would be so heavenly

And help me meet both ends, yes indeed

But old Pearl been needin’ bad

A five pound box of tens

Really, how much could that weigh?

I don’t want the whole money tree

What good is that big thing to me?

You keep the branches, the trunk, and the roots

‘Cause all I want is just a little bit of the fruit

So if you wanna be sure I’ll be yours

Little old honey, honey bunny

You can start me off on Christmas night

With a five pound – no, I better increase that, ten pounds

No, I better beg big while I’m beggin’

‘Cause you know, I might not catch you next year

‘Cause sometimes people go out and you don’t see them no more

So bring the money

Santa! Do you hear me?

Jimmy Olsen's Blues - Spin Doctors

Well, I don't think I can handle this

A cloudy day in Metropolis

I think I'll talk to my analyst

I got it so bad for this little journalist

It drives me up the wall and through the roof

Lois and Clark in a telephone booth

I think I'm going out of my brain

I got it so bad for little Miss Lois Lane

Lois Lane please put me in your plan

Yeah, Lois Lane you don't need no Superman

Come on downtown and stay with me tonight

I got a pocket full of kryptonite

He's leaping buildings in a single bound

I'm reading Shakespeare in my place downtown

Come on downtown and make love to me

I'm Jimmy Olsen not a titan, you see

He's faster than a bullet, stronger than a train

He's the one who got lucky, got his cape

Around Miss Lois Lane

I can't believe my dilemma is real

I'm competing with the man of steel

Lois Lane please put me in your plan

Yeah, Lois Lane you don't need no Superman

Come on downtown and stay with me tonight

I got a pocket full of kryptonite

"Thunder Road"- Bruce Springsteen

The screen door slams

Mary's dress waves

Like a vision she dances across the porch

As the radio plays

Roy Orbison singing for the lonely

Hey that's me and I want you only

Don't turn me home again

I just can't face myself alone again

Don't run back inside

Darling you know just what I'm here for

So you're scared and you're thinking

That maybe we ain't that young anymore

Show a little faith, there's magic in the night

You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright

Oh and that's alright with me

You can hide 'neath your covers

And study your pain

Make crosses from your lovers

Throw roses in the rain

Waste your summer praying in vain

For a savior to rise from these streets

Well now I'm no hero

That's understood

All the redemption I can offer girl

Is beneath this dirty hood

With a chance to make it good somehow

Hey what else can we do now

Except roll down the window

And let the wind blow back your hair

Well the night's busting open

These two lanes will take us anywhere

We got one last chance to make it real

To trade in these wings on some wheels

Climb in back

Heaven's waiting on down the tracks

Oh oh come take my hand

Riding out tonight to case the promised land

Oh oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road

Oh Thunder Road

Lying out there like a killer in the sun

Hey I know it's late, we can make it if we run

Oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold

Thunder Road

Well I got this guitar

And I learned how to make it talk

And my car's out back

If you're ready to take that long walk

From your front porch to my front seat

The door's open but the ride it ain't free

And I know you're lonely

For words that I ain't spoken

But tonight we'll be free

All the promises'll be broken

There were ghosts in the eyes

Of all the boys you sent away

They haunt this dusty beach road

In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets

They scream your name at night in the street

Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet

And in the lonely cool before dawn

You hear their engines roaring on

But when you get to the porch they're gone

On the wind, so Mary climb in

It's a town full of losers

And I'm pulling out of here to win

:bow: :bow: :bow: File that under "songs I wish I wrote".

It's Like That ~ Run D.M.C

Unemployment at a record highs

People coming, people going, people born to die

Don't ask me, because I don't know why

But it's like that, and that's the way it is

People in the world tryin to make ends meet

You try to ride car, train, bus, or feet

I said you got to work hard, you want to compete

It's like that, and that's the way it is

Huh!

Money is the key to end all your woes

Your ups, your downs, your highs and your lows

Won't you tell me the last time that love bought you clothes?

It's like that, and that's the way it is

Bills rise higher every day

We receive much lower pay

I'd rather stay young, go out and play

It's like that, and that's the way it is

Huh!

Wars going on across the sea

Street soldiers killing the elderly

Whatever happened to unity?

It's like that, and that's the way it is

Disillusion is the word

That's used by me when I'm not heard

I just go through life with my glasses blurred

It's like that, and that's the way it is

Huh!

You can see a lot in this lifespan

Like a bum eating out of a garbage can

You noticed one time he was your man

It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is

You should have gone to school, you could've learned a trade

But you laid in the bed where the bums have laid

Now all the time you're crying that you're underpaid

It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is

Huh!

One thing I know is that life is short

So listen up homeboy, give this a thought

The next time someone's teaching why don't you get taught?

It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is

If you really think about it times aren't that bad

The one that flexes with successes will make you glad

Stop playing start praying, you won't be sad

It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is

Huh!

When you feel you fail sometimes it hurts

For a meaning in life is why you search

Take the bus or the train, drive to school or the church

It's like that, and that's the way it is

Here's another point in life you should not miss

Do not be a fool who's prejudiced

Because we're all written down on the same list

It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is

Huh!

You know it's like that, and that's the way it is

Because it's like that, and that's the way it is...

It's fastly approaching 4:30pm here on the East Coast, nearly time for me to bug on out of here. So, I'll leave you all with this one-hit wonder from that Minnesota-based punk trio, Semisonic. From 1998, this is....

"CLOSING TIME"

"Closing time

Open all the doors and let you out into the world

Closing time

Turn all of the lights on over every boy and every girl

Closing time

One last call for alcohol so finish your whiskey or beer

Closing time

You don't have to go home but you can't stay here

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

Closing time

Time for you to go out to the places you will be from

Closing time

This room won't be open till your brothers or your sisters come

So gather up your jackets, move it to the exits

I hope you have found a friend

Closing time

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

Take me home"

WILLIAM DEVAUGHN lyrics - Be Thankful For What You Got (OMG I LOVE THIS :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: !!!!!)

Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac

Gangsta whitewalls

TV antennas in the back

You may not have a car at all

But remember brothers and sisters

You can still stand tall

Just be thankful for what you've got

Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean

Gangsta whitewalls

TV antennas in the back

You may not have a car at all

But remember brothers and sisters

You can still stand tall

Just be thankful for what you've got

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac

Gangsta whitewalls

TV antennas in the back

You may not have a car at all

But remember brothers and sisters

You can still stand tall

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

[instrumental Interlude]

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Diamond in the back, sunroof top

Diggin' the scene

With a gangsta lean, wooh-ooh-ooh

Lawyers Guns and Money

Warren Zevon

Well, I went home with the waitress

The way I always do

How was I to know

She was with the Russians, too

I was gambling in Havana

I took a little risk

Send lawyers, guns and money

Dad, get me out of this

I'm the innocent bystander

Somehow I got stuck

Between the rock and the hard place

And I'm down on my luck

And I'm down on my luck

And I'm down on my luck

Now I'm hiding in Honduras

I'm a desperate man

Send lawyers, guns and money

The shi* has hit the fan

Send lawyers, guns and money...

It's Like That ~ Run D.M.C

Don't ask me, because I don't know why

But it's like that, and that's the way it is

my professor took that quote, referring to mathematics.

Which is extremely funny as he's a mid-aged man totally not familiar with music at all :jester:

Paper bag - Goldfrapp

No time to f*ck, but you like the rush

Where would we be without sums

Deals we make

Brown paper bag, makes for a hat

When it rains on your head mate

Cheers for that

When the world stops for snow

When you laugh I'm inside

Your mouth

Sucking the sun

Baboons and birds

With the weight of you dear

I forgot

Brown paper bag, makes for a hat

When it rains on your head mate

Cheers for that

When the world stops for snow

When you laugh I'm inside

Your mouth

Oh just go dear

Feels a tear

When you laugh I'm inside

Your mouth

"Bob Dylan´s Dream" - Bob Dylan, yes...

While riding on a train goin' west,

I fell asleep for to take my rest.

I dreamed a dream that made me sad,

Concerning myself and the first few friends I had.

With half-damp eyes I stared to the room

Where my friends and I spent many an afternoon,

Where we together weathered many a storm,

Laughin' and singin' till the early hours of the morn.

By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung,

Our words were told, our songs were sung,

Where we longed for nothin' and were quite satisfied

Talkin' and a-jokin' about the world outside.

With haunted hearts through the heat and cold,

We never thought we could ever get old.

We thought we could sit forever in fun

But our chances really was a million to one.

As easy it was to tell black from white,

It was all that easy to tell wrong from right.

And our choices were few and the thought never hit

That the one road we traveled would ever shatter and split.

How many a year has passed and gone,

And many a gamble has been lost and won,

And many a road taken by many a friend,

And each one I've never seen again.

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain,

That we could sit simply in that room again.

Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat,

I'd give it all gladly if our lives could be like that.

Yes, it´s raining today, and I got e-mails from my friends from school and... :laughing:

Who Knew - Pink

You took my hand, you showed me how

You promised me you'd be around

Uh huh that's right

I took your words and I believed

In everything you said to me

Yah huh that's right

If someone said three years from now

You'd be long gone

I'd stand up and punch them out

'Cause they're all wrong

I know better

'Cause you said forever

And ever....who knew?

Remember when we were such fools

And so convinced and just too cool

Oh no no no

I wish I could touch you again

I wish I could still call you friend

I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now

'Fore they're long gone

I guess I just didn't know how

I was all wrong

But they knew better

Still you said forever

And ever...who knew?

I'll keep you locked in my head

Until we meet again

Until we, until we meet again

And I won't forget you my friend

What happened?

If someone said three years from now

You'd be long gone

I'd stand up and punch them out

'Cause they're all wrong

That last kiss, I'll cherish

Until we meet again

And time makes it harder

I wish I could remember

But I keep your memory

You visit me in my sleep

My darling

Who knew?

My darling, my darling

Who knew?

My dariling, I miss you, my darling

Who knew?

This is the life - Amy Macdonald

Oh the wind whistles down

The cold dark street tonight

And the people they were dancing to the music vibe

And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair

While the shy tormented youth sit way over there

And the songs they get louder

Each one better than before

And you're singing the songs

Thinking this is the life

And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size

Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?

So you're heading down the road in your taxi for four

And you're waiting outside Jimmy's front door

But nobody's in and nobody's home 'til four

So you're sitting there with nothing to do

Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew

And where you're gonna go and where you're gonna sleep tonight

And you're singing the songs

Thinking this is the life

And you wake up in the morning and you're head feels twice the size

Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Sarah McLachlan - I Will Remember You

I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don’t let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

Remember the good times that we had?

I let them slip away from us when things got bad

How clearly I first saw you smilin’ in the sun

Wanna feel your warmth upon me, I wanna be the one

I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don’t let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

I’m so tired but I can’t sleep

Standin’ on the edge of something much too deep

It’s funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word

We are screaming inside, but we can’t be heard

But I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don’t let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

I’m so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose

Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose

Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night

You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light

And I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don’t let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

And I will remember you

Will you remember me?

Don’t let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories

Weep not for the memories
