Emily, it's your life and you can't live it twice, One day you'll understand and then you'll take my hand
Emily, I love you, and I know you do too, You never make no sense, screaming at me in French

Pourquoi tu gāches ta vie, Pourquoi tu gāches ta vie, Shut up, listen to me, dance with me Emily

(Mika) ...HA HA HA! - you beat me to it, tech! ;o>

A voice that is crying
His mother's done for lying
The finger points at you
And what a clever doctor
The pills didn't stop her
The finger points at you

But do we really know
Who's really to blame
It's just a game
Forgiving people for being forgot

It's the game everybody can play
The game it's your lucky day
The game just knowing your name
The game that's right it's all a game

The judges sit accusing
Stand up losing
The finger points at you
Somebody wants to help us
But he doesn't trust us
The finger points at you

Just reading the papers
For the media makers
The finger points at you
And look at that trendy
With oh so much envy
The finger points at you (Sham 69)

And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love
It always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing solitaire

T. Franklin says:
When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin' love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself anymore

(Eric Carmen)

i don't wanna be the prisoner

T. Franklin says:
Ever see a blind man cross the road,
Try'na make the other side,
Ever seen a young girl growing old,
Try'na to make herself a bride,
So what becomes of you my love,
When they have finally stripped you of,
The handbags and the gladrags,
That your poor old Granddad had to sweat to buy you

(Rodney, Stereophonics, etc)

Did you ever see an elephant fly?
Well I seen a horse fly...I seen a dragon fly...I seen a house fly

I seen all that too!...I seen a peanut stand, And heard a rubber band, I seen a needle that winked its eye
But I've been, done, seen about everything, When I see a elephant fly!
What'd you say, boy? - I said, when I see a elephant fly!

I seen a front porch swing, Heard a diamond ring, I seen a polka dot railroad tie
But I've been, done, seen about everything, When I see a elephant fly!

I saw a clothes horse and he rear up and buck, And they tell me that a man made a vegetable truck
I didn't see that, I only heard? - Just to be sociable I'll take your word...

I heard a fireside chat, I saw a baseball bat, And I just laughed till I thought I'd die
But I've been, done, seen about everything, When I see a elephant fly!

But I've been, done, seen about everything, When I see a elephant fly! When I see an elephant fly!

Crawling
Over your window you think I'm confused
I'm waiting for the divergent wasp
To complete my current ruse
You use a plate-glass screen
To protect my chosen target
But there's an air-pellet hole
I can crawl through to you
I am the fly in the ointment
I can spread more disease than the fleas
Which nibble away at your window display
Yes I am the fly in the ointment
I shake you down to say please as you
Accept the next dose of disease

Babyshambler says:
In a little hilltop village, they gambled for my clothes
I bargained for salvation an' they gave me a lethal dose
I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm"

I was still just a kid
When my innocence was lost
In a mobile army whorehouse
Gift from the army, free of cost
Next, next

Me, I really would have liked
A little touch of tenderness
Maybe a word, a smile
An hour of happiness
But, next, next
(brel/walker/harvey)

Somebody calls me on the phone
Say hey-hey-hey is Dee Dee home
You wanna take a walk
You wanna go cop
You wanna go get some Chinese rock

I'm livin' on a Chinese rock
All my best things are in hock
I'm livin' on a Chinese rock
Everything is in the pawn shop

The plaster fallin' off the wall
My girlfriend cryin' in the shower stall
It's hot as a bitch
I should've been rich
But I'm just diggin' a Chinese ditch
(dee dee ramone)

So, I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're wise and they're witty, and they're ready to please.

He'll be the red guard
She'll be the new world
He'll wear his grey cap
and she'll wave her red book
He'll tell her
One way?
I want you all ways
One way
And then they'll sing
I was lost at sea
She was lost with me
Then across the broad horizon
out on the Big Waves
I saw it coming
I saw the red guard
I saw the new world
I saw the Big Wall
out on the Big Waves
Hooray!
(That's what I had to say)
Hooray!
We will purify
We must purify
For the sake of that security we all want
We will purify
He'll be the red guard
She'll be the new world
He'll wear his grey cap
She'll wave her red book

Babyshambler says:
I just got out my little red book
The minute that you said goodbye
I thumbed right through my little red book
I wasn't gonna sit and cry
And I went from A to Z
I took out every pretty girl in town
They danced with me and as I held them

All I did was talk about you
Hear your name and I'd start to cry
There's just no getting over you... oh, no...

(Love)

The problem was she had a little black book
And my name was written on every page
Well, a girl's got to make ends meet
Even down on Jubilee Street
I was out of place and time
And over the hill and out of my mind
On Jubilee Street
I ought to practice what I preach
These days I go downtown in my tie and tails
I got a foetus on a leash

I just got an invitation through the mails:
"Your presence requested this evening,
It's formal, a top hat, a white tie and tails."
Nothing now could take the wind out of my sails.
Because I'm invited to step out this evening
With top hat and white tie and tails.

(Fred Astaire)

Got my tweed pressed, got my best vest
All I need now is the girl
Got my striped tie, got my hopes high
Got the time and the place and I got the rhythm
Now, all I need's the girl to go with'em

Johnny Bee says:
I was tremblin' as I put on my jacket
It had creases as sharp as a knife
I put the ring in my pocket but there was a note
And my heart it jumped into my mouth

It read, "Darlin', I'm sorry to hurt you
But I've no courage to speak to your face
But I'm down in Virginia with your cousin Lou
There be no wedding today"

(Rolling Stones)

That's the way the girls are from Texas

That's the way the girls are from Texas
(Got to love 'em right or leave 'em alone)
That's the way the girls are from Texas
That's the way the girls are from Texas

I don't wear no Stetson
But I'm willin to bet son
That I'm as big a Texan as you are
'Cause
There's a girl in her barefeet
'Sleep on the back seat
An that trunk is full of Pearl...and Lone Star

'Cause
I'm panhandlin
Man handlin
Post holin
High rollin
Dust Bowlin...Daddy
An I ain't got no blood veins
I just got them four lanes
Of hard...Amarillo Highway
