Here's a fun one.

GRATEFUL DEAD - NEW SPEEDWAY BOOGIE LYRICS

Please don't dominate the rap Jack
if you got nothing new to say
If you please don't back up the track
This train got to run today

Spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
Heard some say better run away
Others say you better stand still

Now I don't know but I been told
it's hard to run with the weight of gold
Other hand I heard it said
it's just as hard with the weight of lead

Who can deny? Who can deny?
it's not just a change in style
One step done and another begun
in I wonder how many miles?

Spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
Things went down we don't understand
but I think in time we will

Now I don't know but I been told
in the heat of the sun a man died of cold
Do we keep on coming or stand and wait
with the sun so dark and the hour so late?

You can't overlook the lack Jack
of any other highway to ride
It's got no signs or dividing lines
and very few rules to guide

Spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
I saw things getting out of hand
I guess they always will

I don't know but I been told
if the horse don't pull you got to carry the load
I don't know whose back's that strong
Maybe find out before too long

One way or another
One way or another
One way or another
this darkness got to give
One way or another
One way or another
One way or another
this darkness got to give

I like that one, 26.

here's one:

Lovecats - The Cure

We move like cagey tigers
We couldn't get closer than this
The way we walk
The way we talk
The way we stalk
The way we kiss
We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and sleeker
And wider and brighter
We bite and scratch and scream all night
Let's go and throw
All the songs we know...

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you...
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It's the grooviest thing
It's the perfect dream

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you...
We should have each other to dinner huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up in the fire
Get up for awhile
It's the grooviest thing
It's the perfect dream

Hand in hand
Is the only way to land
And always the right way round

Sunday (part 2) - Cibo Matto


Why can't we dance in the same groove every day?

My step starts from 6 to 1, from 6 to 1.

You make fun of my honesty,
but I think consciousness is the same in space...
(in space... in space... in space...)

I'm living (living... living...)
in the second world.

I'm watching you
(watching you... watching you...)
from the second world.

Don't complain about it, baby...
I cannot be perfect for you.

Still learning every Sunday (Sun---day),
I just spend. I just spend. I just spend...
every Sunday...
every Sunday....

I'm living (living... living...)
in the second world.

I'm watching you
(watching you... watching you...)
from the second world.

Don't complain about it, baby...
I cannot be perfect for you.

Still learning every Sunday (Sun---day),
I just spend. I just spend. I just spend...
every Sunday...
every Sunday....
every Sunday...
every Sunday....

HEY JACK KEROUAC

hey Jack Kerouac
I think of your mother
and the tears she cried, she cried for none other
than her little boy lost in our little world that hated
and that dared to drag him down
her little boy courageous

who chose his words from mouths of
babes got lost in the wood
hip flask slinging madman, steaming cafe flirts
they all spoke through you

hey Jack
now for the tricky part
when you were the brightest star
who were the shadows?
of the San Francisco beat boys
you were the favorite
now they sit and rattle their bones
and think of their blood stoned days

you chose your words from mouths of
babes got lost in the wood
the hip flask slinging madman, steaming cafe flirts
nights in Chinatown howling at night

Allen baby, why so jaded
have the boys all grown up and their beauty faded?
Billy, what a saint they've made you
just like Mary down in Mexico on All Souls' Day

you chose your words from mouths of
babes got lost in the wood
cool junk booting madmen, street minded girls
in Harlem howling at night

what a tear stained shock of the world
you've gone away without saying
saying goodbye...

For all the complicated ladies

Billy Joel

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes

She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see

She hides like a child, but she's always a woman to me


She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you

She can ask for the truth, but she'll never believe

And she'll take what you give her as long it's free

Yeah, She steals like a thief, but she's always a woman to me

Ohhh... she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants, she's ahead of her time

Ohhh... and she never gives out
And she never gives in, she just changes her mind


And she'll promise you more than the garden of Eden

Then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding

But sheíll bring out the best and the worst you can be

Blame it all on yourself 'cause she's always a woman to me

She's frequently kind and she's suddenly cruel

She can do as she pleases, she's nobody's fool

And she can't be convicted, she's earned her degree

And the most she will do is throw shadows at you,

But she's always a woman to me

This is straying from the current flow a bit, but another thread reminded me of this and now I have to post it!


Now I've been happy lately, thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be, something good has begun

Oh I've been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be, some day it's going to come

Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again

Now I've been smiling lately, thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be, something good has begun

Oh peace train sounding louder
Glide on the peace train
Come on now peace train
Yes, peace train holy roller

Everyone jump upon the peace train
Come on now peace train

Get your bags together, go bring your good friends too
Cause it's getting nearer, it soon will be with you

Now come and join the living, it's not so far from you
And it's getting nearer, soon it will all be true

Now I've been crying lately, thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating, why can't we live in bliss

Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again

Cat Stevens Peace Train

The Beach Boys - I guess I just wasn't made for these times


I keep looking for a place to fit
Where I can speak my mind
I've been trying hard to find the people
That I won't leave behind

They say I got brains
But they ain't doing me no good
I wish they could

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good goin' for myself
But what goes wrong

Sometimes I feel very sad
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)

I guess I just wasn't made for these times

Every time I get the inspiration
To go change things around
No one wants to help me look for places
Where new things might be found

Where can I turn when my fair weather friends cop out
What's it all about

Each time things start to happen again
I think I got something good goin' for myself
But what goes wrong

Sometimes I feel very sad
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes I feel very sad
(Can't find nothin' I can put my heart and soul into)

I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times
I guess I just wasn't made for these times

The Beach Boys - Hang On To Your Ego


I know so many people who think they can do it alone
They isolate their heads and stay in their saftey zones

Now what can you tell them
And what can you say that won't make them defensive

Hang on to your ego
Hang on, but I know that you're gonna lose the fight

They come on like their peaceful
But inside they're so uptight
They trip through the day
And waste all their thoughts at night

Now how can I say it
And how can I come on
When I know I'm guilty

Hang on to your ego
Hang on, but I know that you're gonna lose the fight

Now how can I say it
And how can I come on
When I know I'm guilty

So hang on to your ego
Hang on, but I know that you're gonna lose the fight

This is one of my all time favorites.


Operator - Jim Croce


Operator, well could you help me place this call?
See, the number on the matchbook is old and faded.
She's living in L. A.
with my best old ex-friend Ray,
A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated.

Isn't that the way they say it goes?
Well, let's forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it,
So I can call just to tell 'em Iím fine
and to show
I've overcome the blow,
Iíve learned to take it well --
I only wish my words
could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real,
but that's not the way it feels.

Operator, well could you help me place this call?
Well, I can't read the number that you just gave me.
There's something in my eyes,
you know it happens every time --
I think about a love that I thought would save me.

Isn't that the way they say it goes?
Well, let's forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it,
So I can call just to tell 'em Iím fine
and to show
I've overcome the blow,
Iíve learned to take it well --
I only wish my words
could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real,
but that's not the way it feels.
No, no, no, no --
that's not the way it feels.

Operator, well let's forget about this call -
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to.
Thank you for your time,
ah, you've been so much more than kind.
And you can keep the dime.

Isn't that the way they say it goes?
Well, let's forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it,
So I can call just to tell 'em Iím fine
and to show
I've overcome the blow,
Iíve learned to take it well --
I only wish my words
could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real,
but that's not the way it feels.
No, no, no, no --
that's not the way it feels.

Thank you, HSC...Jim Croce wrote and recorded my late Aquarian Dad's favorite song. I still cry each time I hear it:

Time In A Bottle

~Jim Croce

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

Here's another Beach Boys one for you :

SURF'S UP
~Brian Wilson

A diamond necklace played the pawn
Hand in hand some drummed along, oh
To a handsome man and baton
A blind class aristocracy
Back through the opera glass you see
The pit and the pendulum drawn
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping?

Hung velvet overtaken me
Dim chandelier awaken me
To a song dissolved in the dawn
The music hall a costly bow
The music all is lost for now
To a muted trumperter swan
Columnated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping, Brother John?

Dove nested towers the hour was
Strike the street quicksilver moon
Carriage across the fog
Two-Step to lamp lights cellar tune
The laughs come hard in Auld Lang Syne

The glass was raised, the fired rose
The fullness of the wine, the dim last toasting
While at port adieu or die

A choke of grief heart hardened I
Beyond belief a broken man too tough to cry

Surf's Up
Aboard a tidal wave
Come about hard and join
The young and often spring you gave
I heard the word
Wonderful thing
A children's song

Child, child, child, child, child
A child is the father of the man
Child, child, child, child, child
A child is the father of the man
A children's song
Have you listened as they played
Their song is love
And the children know the way
That's why the child is the father to the man
Child, child, child, child, child
Child, child, child, child, child
Na na na na na na na na
Child, child, child, child, child
That's why the child is the father to the man
Child, child, child, child, child

Thank you, silvermoon.
That's a great one for me!
I've got Moon closely conjunct Juno in the 1st -
I'm VERY childlike.
And I know what Brian (Wilson) was singing about,
oh, yes I do.

Your dad had good taste.
I'm sure he still does.
I'm sure he is singing that song still,
and he knows its not as sad as it once seemed;
he knows he still has eternity to spend with you.

Believe - Elton John


I believe in love, it's all we got
Love has no boundaries, costs nothing to touch
War makes money, cancer sleeps
Curled up in my father and that means something to me
Churches and dictators, politics and papers
Everything crumbles sooner or later
But love, I believe in love

I believe in love, it's all we got
Love has no boundaries, no borders to cross
Love is simple, hate breeds
Those who think difference is the child of disease
Father and son make love and guns
Families together kill someone
Without love, I believe in love

Without love I wouldn't believe
In anything that lives and breathes
Without love I'd have no anger
I wouldn't believe in the right to stand here
Without love I wouldn't believe
I couldn't believe in you
And I wouldn't believe in me
Without love

I believe in love
I believe in love
I believe in love

Pencil Skirt - Pulp

When you raise your pencil skirt,
like a veil before my eyes,
like the look upon his face as he's zipping up his fly.
Oh I know that you're engaged to him.
Oh but I know that you want something to play with baby.

I'll be around when he's not in town,
I'll show you how you're doing it wrong,
I really love it when you tell me to stop.
Oh it's turning me on.

You can tell me some lies,
about the good times that you've had,
but I've kissed your Mother twice,
and now I'm working on your Dad.

Oh baby, I'll be around when he's not in town,
I'll show you how you're doing it wrong,
I really love it when you tell me to stop.
Oh it's turning me on.

If you look under the bed,
then I can see my house from here,
so just lie against the wall,
and watch my conscience disappear now baby

I'll be around when he's not in town,
I'll show you how you're doing it wrong,
I really love it when you tell me to stop.
Oh it's turning me on.

I only come here cause I know it makes you sad.
I only do it cause I know you know it's bad.
Oh yes I know,
that it's ugly and it shouldn't be like that.
Oh but oh it's turning me on.

You sound positively inspired. How uplifting and oh nevermind!

I'm going to find a cooler song than yours. Did you watch Cops? Didn't it inspire you to save the world?

Ok, other than the commercial, I have never heard this song. Not my style of music, although it's growing on me. Heather makes me listen to the Black Eyed Peas too. I mostly just tease her about it, but a couple of those are growing on me too.

Kelis Lyrics

Milkshake Lyrics


[Repeat x2]
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,
And they're like
It's better than yours,
Dam* right it's better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge

I know you want it,
The thing that makes me,
What the guys go crazy for.
They lose their minds,
The way I wind,
I think its time

[Chorus x2]
La la-la la la,
Warm it up.
Lala-lalala,
The boys are waiting

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,
And they're like
It's better than yours,
Dam* right it's better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge

I can see youre on it,
You want me to teach thee
Techniques that freaks these boys,
It can't be bought,
Just know, thieves get caught,
Watch if your smart,

[Chorus x2]
La la-la la la,
Warm it up,
La la-la la la,
The boys are waiting,

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,
And they're like
It's better than yours,
Dam* right it's better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge

Oh, once you get involved,
Everyone will look this way-so,
You must maintain your charm,
Same time maintain your halo,
Just get the perfect blend,
Plus what you have within,
Then next his eyes are squint,
Then he's picked up your scent,

[Chorus x2]
Lala-lalala,
Warm it up,
Lala-lalala,
The boys are waiting,

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,
And they're like
It's better than yours,
Dam* right it's better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge

Oh my!
How about that Promiscuous Girl song? It makes my Virgo Mercury gasp and makes my Cap Moon sad.

Just heard this one "live" on Sat Night Live

Iíve got another confession to make
Iím no fool
Everyoneís got their chains to break
Holdiní you

Were you born to resist or be abused?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Are you gone in onto someone new?

I needed somewhere to hang my head
Without your noose
You gave me something that I didnít have
But had no use
I was too weak to give in
Too strong to lose
My heart is under arrest again
But I break loose
My head is giving me life or death
But I canít choose
I swear Iíll never give in
I refuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
Your trust, you must
Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh...

Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh

Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
The life, the love
You'd die to heal
The hope that start
The broken hearts
Your trust, you must
Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Iíve got another confession my friend
Iím no fool
Iím getting tired of starting again
Somewhere new

Were you born to resist or be abused?
I swear Iíll never give in
I refuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
Your trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh...

Kelis


I couldnt find "Cops" on any of the channels.
The closest thing was "Americas Most Wanted".
I watched Total Recall and The Sixth Sense again instead.

That Foo Fighters song......
It was the last song Maya sent me before she vanished.
It's surrounded in mystery, like her.
Like everything about her ("Maya" wasnt even her real name).
And I dont know what to make of it........

I've got my own confession to make.
I'm no cynic. My head is full of dreams.
I'm pointing at spaces between the stars.

Everything takes on a life....
when I touch my finger to it.

John I Love You

John I love you
I'm ever so fond of you
Will you wait for me
'Til I am heavenly
Oh there's much work to do
But I love you

Oh you're tender
Your name's a whisper

I let tears fall like rain
Apple-sized they were
All over her
And through all of those times
When you could have died
This is what you find

There's life outside your mother's garden
There's life beyond your wildest dreams
There hasn't been any explosion
We're not spinning like Dorothy
If you look now then you'll see why
Don't be afraid to cry
This time don't let yourself fly

Child
Pick up those dancing shoes
Kick off those wedding blues
These are the ways
You can choose

Child you're tender
Your name's a whisper

There's life outside your mother's garden
There's life beyond your wildest dreams
There hasn't been any explosion
We're not spinning like Dorothy
And if you look now then you'll see why
Don't be afraid to cry
This time don't let yourself fly

Child
Pick up those dancing shoes
Kick off those wedding blues
These are the ways
You can choose

Child I love you
I'm ever so fond of you...

but you've got to be fond of you too....

The Fog

You see, Im all grown up now.

He said,
Just put your feet down child,
cause youre all grown up now.

Just like a photograph,
I pick you up.
Just like a station on the radio,
I pick you up.
Just like a face in the crowd,
I pick you up.
Just like a feeling that youre sending out,
I pick it up.
But I cant let you go.
If I let you go,
You slip into the fog...

This love was big enough for the both of us.
This love of yours was big enough to be frightened of.
Its deep and dark, like the water was,
The day I learned to swim.

He said,
Just put your feet down, child.

Just put your feet down child,
The water is only waist high.
Ill let go of you gently,
Then you can swim to me.

Is this love big enough to watch over me?
Big enough to let go of me
Without hurting me,
Like the day I learned to swim?

cause youre all grown up now.

Just put your feet down, child,
The water is only waist high.
Ill let go of you gently,
Then you can swim to me.

I love that song, salome.
I find myself singing it a lot. (all of Universal Mother--awe some. )

My favorite of all time of Cat's--- (huge, huge, huge fan of his )


Cat Stevens - Sitting


Oh I'm on my way, I know I am, somewhere not so far from here

All I know is all I feel right now, I feel the power growing in
my hair

Sitting on my own not by myself, everybody's here with me

I don't need to touch your face to know, and I don't need to use
my eyes to see


I keep on wondering if I sleep too long, will I always wake up
the same (or so)?

And keep on wondering if I sleep too long, will I even wake up
again or something


Oh I'm on my way I know I am, but times there were when I
thought not

Bleeding half my soul in bad company, I thank the moon I had the
strength to stop

I'm not making love to anyone's wishes, only for that light I
see

'Cause when I'm dead and lowered low in my grave, that's
gonna
be the only thing that's left of me


And if I make it to the waterside, will I even find me a boat
(or so)?

And if I make it to the waterside, I'll be sure to write you not
or something

Oh I'm on my way, I know I am, somewhere not so far from here

All I know is all I feel right now, I feel the power growing in
my hair


Oh life is like a maze of doors and they all open from the side
you're on

Just keep on pushing hard boy, try as you may

You're going to wind up where you started from
You're going to wind up where you started from

Sorry about the song. I read some old posts where you mentioned Maya, and your relationship, but I don't really know what you are talking about as far as how/why it ended, that's ok though. I hope it didn't get you down again. Although I was strangely compelled to look it up and post it... I had never heard it before but a few of the lyrics struck me when I was listening to him sing it.
I hope you made something positive out of it I'm sure you did! (And if not, get on that!)

How's this?

Mr. Sun came out and he smiled at me.

Said it's gonna be a good one just wait and see!
Jumped out of bed
and I ran outside
feeling so extra exstatified!

It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)
It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)

I'm so busy got nothing to do,

spent the last two hours
just tying my shoe.

Every flower
every grain of sand,
is reaching out to shake my hand.

It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)
It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)

Sometimes the little things
start closing in on me,

when I'm feeling down
I wanna lose that frown
I stick my head out the window
and look around.

Those clouds don't scare me
they can't disguise,

this magic that's happening right before my eyes.

Soon Mr. Moon
will be shining bright
so the best day ever will last all night.

Yes the Best day ever's gonna last all night now.

It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)
It's the Best day ever (Best day ever)
It's the Best day ever! (Best day ever)
It's the Best day ever (Best day ever)
(Best day ever)
(Best day...)
