"The Bastard Son Of Dean Friedman" - Half Man Half Biscuit

Well I heard a lovely rumour,

That Bette Midler had a tumour,

So gleefully I went to tell my friends.

But they said it was a lie,

That she wasn't going to die,

"And by the way, have we got news for you!"

And they told me that the man

That I had always known as "Dad",

Hadn't met my "Mum" when I was born.

And they reckon that I am,

But I hope to God I'm not,

The bastard son of Dean Friedman,

The bastard son of Dean Friedman.

And my school-work fell behind

With this bombshell on my mind.

My art teacher said he understood.

But he could only sympathise

With the sadness in my eyes,

Even though he showed me his Magritte...

In the corridors of fear

I would shed a lonely tear,

As ridicule flew at me from both sides.

And they mocked me in my mocks,

And embroidered in my socks,

The bastard son of Dean Friedman,

The bastard son of Dean Friedman.

Supercalifragilistic-Borussia Moenchengladbach

And you can thank your lucky stars that you're not

The bastard son of Dean Friedman,

The bastard son of Dean Friedman.

The Bastard Son Of Dean Friedman

Bob Dylan - The Man In Me

The man in me will do nearly any task,

And as for compensation, there's little he would ask.

Take a woman like you

To get through to the man in me.

Storm clouds are raging all around my door,

I think to myself I might not take it any more.

Take a woman like your kind

To find the man in me.

But, oh, what a wonderful feeling

Just to know that you are near,

Sets my a heart a-reeling

From my toes up to my ears.

The man in me will hide sometimes to keep from bein' seen,

But that's just because he doesn't want to turn into some machine.

Took a woman like you

To get through to the man in me

Slide Away -- Oasis

Slide away, and give it all you've got

My today, fell in from the top

I dream of you, and all the things you say

I wonder where you are now?

Hold me down, all the world's asleep

I need you now, you knock me off my feet,

I dream of you, and the thought of growing old

But you said please don't...

Slide in baby, together we'll fly

I've tried praying, but I don't know what you're saying to me

Now that you're mine

We'll find a way

Of chasing the sun

Let me be the one, that shines with you

Cause in the morning, I don't know what to do

We're two of a kind

We'll find a way

To do what we've done

Let me be the one, that shines with you

And we can slide away, slide away, slide away, away...

Slide away, and give it all you've got

My today, fell in from the top

I dream of you, and all the things you say

I wonder where you are now?

Slide in baby, together we'll fly

I've tried praying, and I know just what you're saying to me

Now that you're mine

We'll find a way

Of chasing the sun

Let me be the one that shines with you

Cause in the morning when you don't know what to do

We're two of a kind

We'll find a way

To do what we've done

Oh, let me be the one

That shines with you, and we can slide away...

Slide away, slide away, slide away, slide away

(and I wanna try now, i wanna make you mine now)

I don't know, I don't care, all I know is you can take me there

(Slide away...)

Take me there

I'm feelin very hippyish this week for some reason..heard this one on the radio tonight...

"Ripple" ~ Grateful Dead :beatnik:

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine

And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,

Would you hear my voice come thru the music,

Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,

Perhaps they're better left unsung.

I don't know, don't really care

Let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water,

When there is no pebble tossed,

Nor wind to blow.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,

If your cup is full may it be again,

Let it be known there is a fountain,

That was not made by the hands of men.

There is a road, no simple highway,

Between the dawn and the dark of night,

And if you go no one may follow,

That path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water,

When there is no pebble tossed,

Nor wind to blow.

You who choose to lead must follow

But if you fall you fall alone,

If you should stand then who's to guide you?

If I knew the way I would take you home.

R.E.M. - Fall On Me

There's a problem feathers iron

Bargain buildings weights and pulleys

Feathers hit the ground before the weight can leave the air

Buy the sky and sell the sky and tell the sky and tell the sky

Don't fall on me (What is it up in the air for) (It's gonna fall)

Fall on me (If it's there for long) (It's gonna fall)

Fall on me (It's over it's over me) (It's gonna fall)

There's the progress we have found (when the rain)

A way to talk around the problem (when the children reign)

Building towered foresight (keep your conscience in the dark)

isn't anything at all (melt the statues in the park)

Buy the sky and sell the sky and bleed the sky and tell the sky

(repeat chorus)

Don't fall on me

Well I could keep it above

But then it wouldn't be sky anymore

So if I send it to you you've got to promise to keep it whole

Buy the sky and sell the sky and lift your arms up to the sky

And ask the sky and ask the sky

(repeat chorus, etc.)

"Pea"- Red Hot Chili Peppers

I'm a little pea

I love the sky the trees

I'm a teeny tiny little ant

Checking out this and that

I am nothing

So you have nothing to hide

And I'm a pacifist

So I can f**k your s**t up

Oh yeah I'm small

F**k you assh**e

You homophobic redneck d**k

You're big and tough and macho

You can kick my ass

So f**king what

April Wine - Just Between You And Me

Time and time again I see

A love that seemed strong

Was not meant to be,

Broken hearts don't always mend,

Left too unsure, to try love again.

Just between you and me

Baby I know our love will be,

Just between you and me

Always I know our love will be,

Just between you and me

Lovers often seem to say

Hearts can be blind to love gone astray,

Always it's the same old song,

Someone's been hurt by love that's gone wrong.

Just between you and me

Baby I know our love will be,

Just between you and me

Always I know our love will be,

Just between you,

Just between you and me

Words are sometimes hard to find,

The silence can be so unkind,

You always help me find my way,

The love that we share,

Grows stronger each day,

Just between you and me

Baby I know our love will be,

Just between you and me

Always I know our love will be,

Seulement entre toi et moi

Means that our love will always be

Just between you and me

Baby I know our love will be

Just between you

Just between you and me

Poco - Crazy Love

Tonight I'm gonna break away

Just you wait and see

I've never been imprisoned by

A faded memory

Just when I think I'm over her

This broken heart will mend

I hear her name and I have to cry

The tears come down again

CHORUS:

It happens all the time

This crazy love of mine

Wrapped around my heart

Refusing to unwind

Ooh-ooh, crazy love, ah...

Count the stars in the southern sky

That fall without a sound

And then pretend that you can't hear

These teardrops coming down

CHORUS

Tonight I'm gonna break away

Just you wait and see

I've never been imprisoned by

A faded memory

CHORUS

Tonight I'm gonna break away...

Used in: Song of the South

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay,

My, oh, my, what a wonderful day.

Plenty of sunshine headin' my way,

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay!

Everything is "satisfactch'll."

Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!

It's the truth, it's "actch'll"

Everything is "satisfactch'll."

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay,

Wonderful feeling, feeling this way!

This has been stuck in my head for days. Maybe posting the lyrics will remove it from my brain

REO Speedwagon - Can't Fight This Feeling

I can't fight this feeling any longer.

And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow.

What started out as friendship,

Has grown stronger.

I only wish I had the strength to let it show.

I tell myself that I can't hold out forever.

I said there is no reason for my fear.

Cause I feel so secure when we're together.

You give my life direction,

You make everything so clear.

And even as I wander,

I'm keeping you in sight.

You're a candle in the window,

On a cold, dark winter's night.

And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might.

And I can't fight this feeling anymore.

I've forgotten what I started fighting for.

It's time to bring this ship into the shore,

And throw away the oars, forever.

Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore.

I've forgotten what I started fighting for.

And if I have to crawl upon the floor,

Come crushing through your door,

Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore.

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you.

I've been running round in circles in my mind.

And it always seems that I'm following you, girl,

Cause you take me to the places,

That alone I'd never find.

And even as I wander,

I'm keeping you in sight.

You're a candle in the window

On a cold, dark winter's night.

And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might.

And I can't fight this feeling anymore.

I've forgotten what I started fighting for.

It's time to bring this ship into the shore,

And throw away the oars, forever.

Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore.

I've forgotten what I started fighting for.

And if I have to crawl upon the floor,

Come crashing through your door,

Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore.

Travis - Writing To Reach You

Every day I wake up and it's Sunday

Whatever's in my eye won't go away

The radio is playing all the usual

And what's a wonderwall anyway?

Because my inside is outside

My right side's on the left side

Cause I'm writing to reach you now but,

I might never reach you

I only want to teach you, about you,

but that's not you

It's good to know that you are home for Christmas

It's good to know that you are doing well

It's good to know that you're no longer hurting

It's good to know i'm feeling not so well

Because my inside in outside

My right side's on the left side

Cause I'm writing to reach you now but

I might never reach you

I only want to teach you,

About you, but that's not you

To know it's true, but that won't do

Maybe then tomorrow will be Monday

And whatever's in my eye should go away

Still the radio keeps playing all the usual

And what's a wonderwall anyway?

Because my inside in outside

My right side's on the left side

Cause I'm writing to reach you

I might never reach you

I only want to teach you,

About you, but that's not you

And you know it's true, but that won't do

And you know it's you, I'm talking to

(Buck/Mills/Stipe)

They call me the apologist

And now that I'm at peak

You know at first it really hurt

We joke about these things

I've skirted all my differences

But now I'm facing up

I wanted to apologise for

Everything I was. So

I'm sorry, so sorry

So sorry

So sorry

So sorry

So sorry

So sorry

Did you understand me right?

The people here are good

They tell me what I should have done

And offer what I could

I'm good, all is good

All's well, no complaints

When I fell regret,

I get down on my knees and pray

I'm sorry (so sorry), so sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry

I live a simple life

Unfettered by complex sweets (so sorry)

You think this isn't me? (so sorry)

Don't be weak (so sorry)

There I go (so sorry)

I'm so sorry

Thank you for being there for me

Thank you for listening, goodbye

I can forfeit selfishness

I hope for you that you apply

This happiness

This peacefulness

This peacefulness

I'm sorry (so sorry), so sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

So sorry (so sorry)

I live (so sorry) a simple life (so sorry)

Unfettered (so sorry) by complex sweets (so sorry)

You think this isn't me? (so sorry)

That's so sweet (so sorry, so sorry)

I'm so sorry

Thank you for being there for me

Thank you for listening, goodbye

Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares) - Travis Tritt

You say you were wrong to ever leave me alone

You're sorry, you're lonesome, and scared

And you say you'd be happy if you could just come back home

Well, here's a quarter, call someone who cares

Call someone who'll listen, and might give a damn

Maybe one of your sordid affairs

But, don't you come 'round here handin' me none of your lines

Here's a quarter, call someone who cares

I though what we had could never turn bad

So your leavin' caught me unaware

But the fact is you've run, girl, that can't be undone

So, here's a quarter, call someone who cares

Call someone who'll listen, and might give a damn

Maybe one of your sordid affairs

But, don't you come 'round here handin' me none of your lines

Here's a quarter, call someone who cares

Yeah, here's a quarter, call someone who cares

They're coming to take me away, Ha, Haaa~Napoleon XIV

Remember when you ran away

And I got on my knees

And begged you not to leave

Because I'd go beserk

Well you left me anyhow

And then the days got worse and worse

And now you see I've gone

Completely out of my mind

And they're coming to take me away ha-haaa

They're coming to take me away ho ho hee hee ha haaa

To the funny farm

Where life is beautiful all the time

And I'll be happy to see those nice young men

In their clean white coats

And they're coming to take me away ha haaa

You thought it was a joke

And so you laughed

You laughed when I said

That losing you would make me flip my lid

Right? You know you laughed

I heard you laugh. You laughed

You laughed and laughed and then you left

But now you know I'm utterly mad

And they're coming to take me away ha haaa

They're coming to take me away ho ho hee hee ha haaa

To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds

And basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes

And they're coming to take me away ha haaa

I cooked your food

I cleaned your house

And this is how you pay me back

For all my kind unselfish, loving deeds

Ha! Well you just wait

They'll find you yet and when they do

They'll put you in the A.S.P.C.A.

You mangy mutt

And they're coming to take me away ha haaa

They're coming to take me away ha haaa ho ho hee hee

To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time

And I'll be happy to see those nice young men

In their clean white coats

And they're coming to take me away

To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds

And basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes

And they're coming to take me away ha haaa!

I am so in love with this song...please read the lyrics and don't just skim over them. :grin:

And So It Goes

John Denver

A mansion on a hill is a lovely sight to see

But like any other house it’s only temporary

Home is anywhere you choose to put your heart

If there's no love inside, it will soon fall apart

Ashes to ashes, dust into dust

Buildings will crumble, bridges will rust

Mountains will disappear, rivers will dry up

And so it goes with everything but love

You can drive around in a long limousine

If you don't know where you're going, it don't mean a thing

He who'd walk a mile just to hold an empty hand

Knows what it means to be a wealthy man

Ashes to ashes, dust into dust

Palaces will crumble, bridges will rust

Mountains will disappear, rivers will dry up

And so it goes with everything but love

Worldly treasures will all pass away

There's just one thing that was put here to stay

Ashes to ashes, dust into dust

Kingdoms will crumble, bridges will rust

Mountains will disappear, rivers will dry up

And so it goes with everything but love

Harvest Moon ~ Mr. Neil Young :bow:

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.
