Summertime ~ V.A.

Summertime

And the living is easy

Fish are jumpin'

And the cotton is high

Your mama's rich

And your daddy's good lookin'

So hush little baby

Don't you cry

One of these mornin's

You're gonna rise up singin'

You're gonna spread your wings

And fly to the sky

But until that

Nothin' can harm you

With mummy and daddy

Standin' by

Summertime

And the living is easy

Fish are jumpin'

And the cotton is high

Your mama's rich

And your daddy's good lookin'

So hush little baby

Don't you cry

Summer has some downsides too

Summertime Blues--Eddie Cochran

Well I'm a- gonna raise a fuss, I'm a- gonna raise a holler

I've been a- workin' all summer just to try to earn a dollar

Tried to get the car go out on a date

The boss says "No dice son, you gotta work late"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a- gonna do

But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

Well, my mom and poppa told me "Son, you gotta earn some money

If you wanna use the car to go riding next Sunday"

Well I wouldn't go to work, I told the boss I was sick

He said "You can't use the car 'cause you didn't work a lick"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do

But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

Gonna take two weeks, gonna have a fine vacation

Gonna take my problem to the United Nations

Well I called my Congressman and he said quote

"I'd like to help you son, but you're too young to vote"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a-gonna do

But there ain't to cure for the summertime blues

You don't want to get any older

Forever Young

- Artist: Rod Stewart

- peak Billboard position # 12 in 1988

- Words and Music by Kevin Stuart James Savigar, James Cregan, Rod Stewart,

and Bob Dylan

May the Good Lord be with ya down every road you roam

And may sunshine and happiness surround you when you're far from home

And may you grow to be proud, dignified, and true

And do unto others as you would have done to you

Be courageous and be brave

And in my heart you'll always stay

Forever young (forever young)

Forever young (forever young)

May good fortune be with you, may your guiding light be strong

Build a stairway to heaven with a prince or a bag of bones

And may you never love in vain

And in my heart you will remain

Forever young (forever young)

Forever young (forever young)

For ever young

For ever young

Yeah!

And when you fin'lly fly away I'll be hopin' that I served ya well

For all the wisdom of a lifetime no one can ever tell

But whatever road ya choose

I'm right behind you, win or lose

Forever young (forever young)

Forever young (forever young)

For ever young

For ever young

For! For! ever young

For ever young

You want to relax and do absolutely nothing all weekend long...

I Don't Like Mondays-Boomtown Rats

(When) The silicon chip inside her head

Gets switched to overload

And nobody’s gonna go to school today

She’s gonna make them stay at home

And daddy doesn’t understand it

He always said she was good as gold

And he can see no reasons

'Cos there are no reasons

What reason do you need to be show-ow-ow-ow-own?

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oot the whole day down

The Telex machine is kept so clean

And it types to a waiting world

And mother feels so shocked

Father’s world is rocked

And their thoughts turn to their own little girl

Sweet 16 ain’t that peachy keen

Now that ain’t so neat to admit defeat

They can see no reasons

'Cos there are no reasons

What reasons do you need?

Oh Oh Oh Oh

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oot

The whole day down, down, down, shoot it all down

And all the playing's stopped in the playground now

She wants to play with the toys a while

And school's out early and soon we'll be learning

And the lesson today is how to die

And then the bullhorn crackles

And the captain tackles

(With the problems of the how's and why's)

And he can see no reasons

'Cos there are no reasons

What reason do you need to die, die?

Oh Oh Oh

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like

I don’t like (Tell me why)

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don’t like

I don’t like (Tell me why)

I don’t like Mondays

Tell me why

I don't like Mondays

I wanna shoo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oot the whole day down

I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing-The Hillside Singers

I'd like to build the world a home

And furnish it with love

Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

I'd like to teach the world to sing

In perfect harmony

I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company

I'd like to see the world for once

All standing hand in hand

And hear them echo through the hills "Ah, peace throughout the land"

(That's the song I hear)

I'd like to teach the world to sing (that the world sings today)

In perfect harmony

I'd like to teach the world to sing

In perfect harmony

I'd like to build the world a home

And furnish it with love

Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

You're tired but can't sleep

Daysleeper ~ R.E.M.

Receiving department, 3 a.m.

Staff cuts have socked up the overage

Directives are posted

No callbacks, complaints

Everywhere is calm

Hong Kong is present

Taipei awakes

All talk of circadian rhythm

I see today with a newsprint fray

My night is colored headache grey

Daysleeper, daysleeper, daysleeper

The bull and the bear are marking

Their territories

They're leading the blind with

Their international glories

I'm the screen, the blinding light

I'm the screen, I work at night

I see today with a newsprint fray

My night is colored headache grey

Don't wake me with so much

Daysleeper

They cried the other night

I can't even say why

Fluorescent flat caffeine lights

Its furious balancing

I'm the screen, the blinding light

I'm the screen, I work at night

I see today with a newsprint fray

My night is colored headache grey

Don't wake me with so much. The

Ocean machine is set to 9

I'll squeeze into heaven and valentine

My bed is pulling me,

Gravity

Daysleeper, daysleeper

Daysleeper, daysleeper, daysleeper

You want to go for a run

"Catch Us If You Can" - Dave Clark Five

"Here they come again, mmmm-mm-mm

Ocean - Pearl Jam

Hold on to the thread

the currents will shift

guide me towards you

know something's left

and we're all allowed to dream

of the next time we touch......

you don't have to stray

two oceans away

waves roll in my thoughts

hold tight the ring...

the sea will rise...

please stand by the shore...

I will be...

I will be...

there once more...

You're doing nothing and you're happy.

Sitting In The Midday Sun-The Kinks (yay!)

I'm sitting by the side of a river

Underneath the pale blue sky

I've got no need to worry, I'm in no hurry

I'm looking at the world go by.

Just sitting in the midday sun,

Just soaking up that currant bun,

With no particular purpose or reason

Sitting in the midday sun.

Everybody say I'm lazy

They all tell me get a job you slob,

I'd rather be a hobo walking round with nothing

Than a rich man scared of losing all he's got.

So I'm just sitting in the midday sun

Just soaking up that currant bun,

Why should I have to give my reasons

For sitting in the midday sun

Oh look at all the ladies

Looking their best in their summer dresses,

Oh sitting in the sun.

I've got no home,

I've got no money

But who needs a job when it's sunny. Wah Wah.

I haven't got a steady occupation

And I can't afford a telephone.

I haven't got a stereo, radio or video

A mortgage, overdraft, a bank loan.

The only way that I can get my fun

Is by sitting in the midday sun

With no particular purpose or reason

Sitting in the midday sun.

Oh listen to the people,

Say I'm a failure and I've got nothing,

Ah but if they would only see

I've got my pride,

I've got no money,

But who needs a job when it's sunny. Wah Wah.

Everybody thinks I'm crazy,

And everybody says I'm dumb,

But when I see the people shouting at each other

I'd rather be an out of work bum.

So I'm just sitting in the midday sun

Just soaking up that currant bun,

With no particular purpose or reason

Sitting in the midday sun

You're feeling lazy.

The Importance of Being Idle -- Oasis

I sold my soul for the second time

'Cause the man He don't pay me

I begged my landlord for some more time

He said "Son, the bills are waiting"

My best friend called me the other night

He said "Man - are you crazy"

My girlfriend told me to get a life

She said "Boy - you're lazy"

But I don't mind

As long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine

I'll be fine, if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit

I can't get a life if my heart's not in it

Hey Hey

I don't mind

As long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine

I'll be fine, if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit

I can't get a life if my heart's not in it

Hey Hey

I lost my faith in the summer time

'Cause it don't stop raining

The sky all day is as black as night

But I'm not complaining

I begged my doctor for one more line

He said "Son - words fail me"

It ain't no place to be killing time

I guess, I'm just lazy

BUT I don't mind

As long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine

I'll be fine, if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit

I can't get a life if my heart's not in it

Hey Hey

My motto in bold :beatnik:

Time just doesn't pass.

Sunny Afternoon ~ The Kinks

The tax man's taken all my dough,

And left me in my stately home,

Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

And I can't sail my yacht,

He's taken everything I've got,

All I've got's this sunny afternoon.

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.

I got a big fat mama trying to break me.

And I love to live so pleasantly,

Live this life of luxury,

Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

In the summertime

In the summertime

In the summertime

My girlfriend's run off with my car,

And gone back to her ma and pa,

Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty.

Now I'm sitting here,

Sipping at my ice cold beer,

Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

Help me, help me, help me sail away,

Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay.

'Cause I love to live so pleasantly,

Live this life of luxury,

Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

In the summertime

In the summertime

In the summertime

Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.

I got a big fat mama trying to break me.

And I love to live so pleasantly,

Live this life of luxury,

Lazing on a sunny afternoon.

In the summertime

In the summertime

In the summertime

In the summertime

In the summertime

You did a good deed today.

Eat It- Weird Al Yankovic

How come you're always such a fussy young man

Don't want no Cap'n Crunch, don't want no Raisin Bran

Well don't you know that other kids are starvin' in Japan

So eat it, just eat it

Don't want to argue, I don't want to debate

Don't want to hear about what kinds of foods you hate

You won't get no dessert 'till you clean off you're plate

So eat it

Don't you tell me you're full

Just eat it... eat it

Get yourself an egg and beat it

Have some more chicken

Have some more pie

It doesn't matter

If it's boiled or fried

Just eat it, just eat it

Just eat it, just eat it... Woo!

Your table manners are a crying shame

You're playing with your food, this ain't some kind of game

Now, if you starve to death

You'll just have yourself to blame

So eat it. Just eat it.

You better listen, better do as you're told

You haven't even touched your tuna casserole

You better chow down, or it's gonna get cold

So eat it.

I don't care if you're full

Just eat it... eat it

Open up your mouth and feed it

Have some more yogurt

Have some more Spam

It doesn't matter if it's fresh or canned

Just eat it! Eat it! Eat it! Eat it!

Don't you make me repeat it!

Have a banana, have a whole bunch

It doesn't matter what you had for lunch

Just eat it! Eat it!

Eat it! Eat it!

Eat it! Eat it!

If it's too cold, reheat it

Have a big dinner. Have a light snack

If you don't like it, you can't send it back

Just eat it! Eat it!

Get yourself an egg and beat it!

Have some more chicken. Have some more pie

It doesn't matter if it's boiled or fried

Just eat it! Eat it!

Don't you make me repeat it! :happybanana:

I shall refrain from posting the obvious (for me) :D

Instead - the song I heard for the first time yesterday:

Have A Lucky Day - Morphine

I feel lucky I just feel that way

I'm on a bus to Atlantic City later on today

Now I'm sitting at a blackjack table and I swear to God my dealer has a tag says Mabel

Hit me hit me I smile at Mabel soon they're bringing complimentary drinks to the table

Players win and winners play have a lucky day

Players win and winners play have a lucky day

Mabel gives me a great big smile she's getting to know me she's on my side

I'm a winner

I'm a winner

I'm a winner

I'm a winner

And I came to play now I know why they say

Players win and winners play have a lucky day

Players win and winners play have a lucky day

Have a lucky day

Now I'm down a little in fact I'm down a lot I'm on a roller coaster ride that I can't stop

Yea my luck has changed but she'll come back

That's the beauty of a game of chance

I can't loose forever but I'm doomed to try because I keep on hearing a voice inside

Players win and winners play have a lucky day

Players win and winners play have a lucky day

Have a lucky day

Come on Mabel hit me one time come on baby

You've made a huge goof in public and now you're completely embarassed.

I Started A Joke ~ Bee Gees

I started a joke

That started the whole world crying

But I didn't see

That the joke was on me

I started to cry

That started the whole world laughing

Oh, if I'd only seen

That the joke was on me

I looked at the sky

Running my hands over my eyes

And I fell out of bed

Hurting my head from things that I'd said

'Till I finally died

That started the whole world living

Oh, if I'd only seen

That the joke was on me

I looked at the sky

Running my hands over my eyes

And I fell out of bed

Hurting my head from things that I'd said

'Till I finally died

That started the whole world living

Oh, if I'd only seen

That the joke was on me

You are planning on having the perfect day off from work to enjoy the nice weather....

Perfect Day

Hoku

Sun's up

A little after twelve

Make breakfast for myself

Leave the work for someone else

People say

They say that it's just a phase

They tell me to act my age,

Well I am

On this perfect day,

Nothing's standing in my way

On this perfect day,

When nothing can go wrong

It's the perfect day,

Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

I could stay, forever as I am

On this perfect day

Sun's down

A little after ten

I pick up all my friends

In my Mercedes-Benz

Wake up

Don't tell me it's just a dream

'Cause when I've had enough

You'll hear me say,

Now don't you try to rain on my

Perfect day,

Nothing's standing in my way

On this perfect day,

Nothing can go wrong

It's the perfect day,

Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

I could stay, forever as I am

On this perfect day

La la la,

Oh, oh

I'm in the race

But I've already won

(La la la)

And getting there can

Be half the fun

(La la la)

So don't stop me

Till I'm good and done,

Don't you try to rain on my

Perfect day

It's the perfect day

It's the perfect day

Nothing's gonna bring me down

I could stay, forever as I am

Pac-Man Fever

Buckner and Garcia

I got a pocket full of quarters

And I'm headed to the arcade

I don't have a lot of money

But I'm bringing everything I made

I got a callous on my finger

And my shoulder's hurting too

I'm gonna eat 'em all up

Just as soon as they turn blue

'Cause I got Pac-Man fever

(Pac-Man fever)

It's driving me crazy

(Driving me crazy)

I got Pac-Man Fever

I'm going out of my mind

(Going out of my mind)

I got Pac-Man fever

(Pac-Man fever)

I'm going out of my mind

(Going out of my mind)

I got all the patterns down

Up until the ninth key

I got Speedy on my tail

And I know it's either him or me

So I'm heading out the back

Going in the other side

Gonna eat the cherries up

And take 'em all for a ride

I got Pac-Man fever

(Pac-Man fever)

It's driving me crazy

(Driving me crazy)

I got Pac-Man fever

(Pac-Man fever)

I'm going out of my mind

I got Pac-Man fever

Then move to the right

'Cause Pokey's too slow

And Blinky's outta sight

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

Now I've got them on the run

And I'm looking for the high score

So it's once around the block

And I slide back out the side door

I'm really cooking now

Eating everything in sight

All my money's gone

So I'll be back tomorrow night

'Cause I got Pac-Man fever

It's driving me crazy

"A Gallon Of Gas" - The Kinks

"I've been waiting for years to buy a brand new Cadillac

But now that I've got one, I want to send it right back

I can't afford the gas to fill my luxury limousine

But even if I had the dough, no one's got no gasoline

I went to my local dealer to see if he could set me straight

He said there's a little gas going but I'd have to wait

But he offered some red hot speed and some really high grade hash

But a gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere for any amount of cash

I can score you some coke and some grade-one grass

But I can't get a gallon of gas

I've got some downers, some speed, all the drugs that you need

But I can't get a gallon of gas

There's no more left to buy or sell

There's no more oil left in the well

A gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere

For any amount of cash

Who needs a car and a Seven-Forty-Seven

When you can't buy a gallon of gas

Who needs a highway, an airport or a jet

When you can't get a gallon of gas

There's no more left to buy or sell

There's no more oil left in the well

A gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere

For any amount of cash

You can't buy a gallon of gas"

It's about time you took a month off from work.

"Wake Up Call"

RCPM

There were covert conditions surrounding our mission when we were called to go

And the powers that be summoned you and me to help prove what they think they know

Estamos borracheros y cancioneros, verified and tried and true

So Special Ops issued us flip flops, a guitar and a week or two

We found a place that's not a where

A time that's not a when

Where there is not a why in sight at all

And the speed of light is the pace of the sun's rise and fall

And in this place that's not a where,

This time that's not a when,

Where there is not a why in sight at all

We'd like to extend our stay…cancel our wake up call

The insertion point was a lively little joint where operations would begin

So we filled our cups so as to loosen up and to blend right in

We told HQ, "We'll contact you, should we need you anymore"

"We'll send official word, yeah fly you the bird!"

"That's the homing pigeon!!!!"

"Or by semaphore…right!"

The good guys and the bad guys, they never work past noon 'round here

We made our mark upon the map but the ink just disappeared

Well, our final report, in code, five letters short was written out by hand

it was truthful, subversive, on purpose, in cursive, scribbled seaside in the sand

Well, we made quite clear we volunteer to stay right where we are

Belay the extraction, we're missing in action, and F*U*B*A*R!

We found a place that's not a where

A time that's not a when

And there is not a why in sight at all

And the speed of the light is the pace of the sun's rise and fall

And in this place that's not a where,

this time that's not a when,

where there is not a why in sight at all

We'd like to extend our stay

Got dreamin' to do today

Just doin' our job anyway… now cancel our wake up call

****************

After that month off, you plan to take another couple of months off and just disappear...

Rocky Mountain High

John Denver

He was born in the summer of his 27th year

'Comin' home to a place he'd never been before

He left yesterday behind him

You might say he was born again

You might say he found a key for every door

When he first came to the mountains

His life was far away

On the road and hangin' by a song

But the string's already broken

And he doesn't really care

It keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long

But the Colorado rocky mountain high

I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky

The shadow from the starlight

Is softer than a lullabye

Rocky mountain high

He climbed cathedral mountains

He saw silver clouds below

He saw everything as far as you can see

And they say that he got crazy once

And he tried to touch the sun

And he lost a friend but kept his memory

Now he walks in quiet solitude

the forest and the streams

Seeking grace in every step he takes

His sight has turned inside himself

To try and understand

The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado rocky mountain high

I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky

You can talk to God

And listen to the casual reply

Rocky mountain high

Now his life is full of wonder

But his heart still knows some fear

Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend

Why they try to tear the mountains down

To bring in a couple more

More people, more scars upon the land

And the Colorado rocky mountain high

I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky

I know he'd be a poorer man

If he never saw an eagle fly

Rocky mountain high

It's Colorado rocky mountain high

I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky

Friends around the campfire

And everybody's high

Rocky mountain high

Operator - jim Croce

Operator, oh could you help me place this call

You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded

Shes livin in l.a.

With my best old ex-friend ray

A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

Isnt that the way they say it goes

But lets forget all that

And give me the number if you can find it

So I can call just to tell them Im fine and to show

Ive overcome the blow

Ive learned to take it well

I only wish my words could just convince myself

But thats not the way it feels

Operator, oh could you help me place this call

cause I cant read the number that you just gave me

Theres something in my eyes

You know it happens every time

I think about the love that ithought would save me

Isnt that the way they say it goes

But lets forget all that

And give me the number if you can find it

So I can call just to tell them Im fine and to show

Ive overcome the blow

Ive learned to take it well

I only wish my words could just convince myself

That it just wasnt real

But thats not the way it feels

Operato,r oh lets forget about this call

Theres no one there I really wanted to talk you

Thank you for your time

Oh youve been so much more than kind

And you can keep the dime

Isnt that the way they say it goes

But lets forget all that

And give me the number if you can find it

So I can call just to tell them Im fine and to show

Ive overcome the blow

Ive learned to take it well

I only wish my words could just convince myself

That it just wasnt real

But thats not the way it feels

The one you love, marries someone else.

IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME

Gladys Knight & The Pips

I saw my love walking down the aisle

And as he passed me by

He turned and gave me a smile

Then, the preacher, then the preacher

The preacher joined their hands

And all the people, all the people began to stand

When I shouted, "you know it should have been me"

(Instead of her walking with you)

You are leaving me stranded

You know that it should have been me baby

Oh baby gettin' ready to marry you

Darlin' darlin' darlin'

You made a promise that we would never part

Then you turned around and broke my little heart

Now you're standing there saying I do

Holding hands with somebody new

You know that it should have been me

(I can't stand it)

Instead of her standing by you

You know that it should have been me

It should have been me

(Baby don't do it)

Then the preacher oh yeah the preacher asked

That there be silence please

If anybody objects to this wedding

Speak now or forever or forever hold your peace

Thin I shouted, "It should have been me"

You know that it should have been me

Don't you know that it should have been me

You know that it should have been me

I've been faithful to you baby, baby, baby

You were leaving me stranded

You love her/him but she/he doesn't love you.
