BARSTOOL BLUES (Neil Young)

If I could hold on to just one thought
For long enough to know
Why my mind is moving so fast
And the conversation is slow
Burn off all the fog
And let the sun through to the snow
Let me see your face again
Before I have to go

I have seen you in the movies
And in those magazines at night
I saw you on the barstool when
You held that glass so tight
And I saw you in my nightmares
But I’ll see you in my dreams
And I might live a thousand years
Before I know what that means

Once there was a friend of mine
Who died a thousand deaths
His life was filled with parasites
And countless idle threats
He trusted in a woman
And on her he made his bets
Once there was a friend of mine
Who died a thousand deaths

 

 

BETTER 'N YOU (Blake Babies)

You're lost beneath the sea
And you didn't wait for me
You left me here, left me hangin' on
When I knew you'd drowned
Did you think I'd wait around?
When I woke up, you were already gone

You could waste your life feeling lonely
Or you could waste your life feeling pain
When you carry the weight of one too many yesterdays
You won't know to come in from the rain

You dug up your own grave
You've no life left to save
You're always saying, saying you can't go on
Well, I've been beneath the sea
And I couldn't hardly see
When I woke up, you were already gone

I've wasted time feeling lonely
I've wasted half my life feeling pain
But at least I feel the weight upon my shoulder
At least I know to come in from the rain
At least I know to come in from the rain
You won't know to come in from the rain

 

 

BIG RED SUN BLUES (Lucinda Williams)

Everything is going wrong it's not right anymore
We can't seem to get along the way we did before
Sun is hanging in the sky, sinking low and so am I
Just for the love of someone and a big red sun
How I gonna lose these big red sun blues
Big red sun big red sun big red sun blues

True love to hold is worth everything
It's worth more than gold or any diamond ring
But this little diamond and a heart that's been broken
Are all I got from you, big red sun
How I gonna lose these big red sun blues
Big red sun big red sun big red sun blues

Look out at that western sky out over the open plains
God only knows why this is all that remains
But give me one more promise and another kiss
And I guess the deal's still on you big red sun
How I gonna lose these big red sun blues
Big red sun big red sun big red sun blues
How I gonna lose these big red sun blues
Big red sun big red sun big red sun blues

 

 

BORDERLINE (Madonna)

Something in the way you love me won't let me be
I don't want to be your prisoner so baby won't you set me free
Stop playing with my heart
Finish what you start
When you make my love come down
If you want me let me know
Baby let it show
Honey don't you fool around

Just try to understand, I've given all I can
'Cause you got the best of me

Borderline feels like I'm going to lose my mind
You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline
Borderline feels like I'm going to lose my mind
You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline

Keep on pushing me baby
Don't you know you drive me crazy
You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline

Something in your eyes is makin' such a fool of me
When you hold me in your arms you love me till I just can't see
But then you let me down, when I look around, baby you just can't be found
Stop driving me away, I just wanna stay,
There's something I just got to say

Just try to understand, I've given all I can,
'Cause you got the best of me

Borderline feels like I'm going to lose my mind
You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline

Keep on pushing me baby
Don't you know you drive me crazy
You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline

Look what your love has done to me
Come on baby set me free
You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline
You cause me so much pain, I think I'm going insane
What does it take to make you see?
You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline

 

 

DON'T CRY NO TEARS (Neil Young)

Don't cry no tears around me
Don't cry no tears around me
'Cause when all the water's gone
The feeling lingers on
Old true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me

Well I wonder who's with her tonight?
And I wonder who's holding her tight?
But there's nothing I can say
To make him go away
Old true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me

There's nothing I can say
To make him go away
Old true love ain't too hard to see
Don't cry no tears around me
Don't cry no tears around me

 

 

DON'T FEAR THE REAPER (Blue Oyster Cult)

All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain..we can be like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand...don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly...don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man...

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity...Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday...Like Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday...Redefine happiness
Another 40,000 coming everyday...We can be like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand...don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly...don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man...

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared...saying don't be afraid
Come on baby...and she had no fear
And she ran to him...then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodbye...she had become like they are
She had taken his hand...she had become like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper

 

 

GIRL IN A BOX (Blake Babies)

I've got a girl in a box
Keep her under my bed, it sure must get hot in the summertime
I get her out when there's nothing else to do
When there's nothing on TV, when I can't see you
Wife don't mind if I give her a child
My wife don't mind, she thinks it's pretty wild
I've got this girl in a box, I got a girl in a box

I'll keep her 'til the day
I'll keep her 'til the day
I'll keep her 'til the day that I die

And I hope I die in the nighttime
With my TV on and a beer in my hand and you by my side

I got a girl in a box
We play games, I'm anything I'm not
But I wanna be, yeah, I wanna be
She'll be a slut, or a dirty little whore
Or the girl next door or my bride instead
Or I'll cut off her head
If I want to, yeah, I want to

I'll keep her 'til the day
I'll keep her 'til the day
I'll keep her 'til the day that I die
I've got a girl in a box
I've got a girl in a box

 

 

HOMOS (Frogs)

Oh mom was always wondering why
I was in to sports
Oh mom was always wondering why
I was staying at the school

I'm in to sports mom
And also I am
In the locker room with the boys
I'm in the shower
And I drop the soap
Every time

Homos
Uh huh
Uh huh
Uh huh
Homos

No one knows a homo
Like us
We love homos

Lesbians are cool
And straights are fools
Lesbians rule their scene
But the homos are the coolest
Of the cool

Homos
Uh huh
Uh huh
Uh huh
Homos

They never knock at my front door
They never ring on the phone
They always come through the window
Through the back door
Through the throat

Homos
Uh huh
Uh huh
Uh huh
Homos

 

 

I DON'T CARE (Ramones)

I don't care I don't care I don't care about this world
I don't care about my girl, I don't care

I don't care I don't care I don't care about these words
I don't care about mygirl, I don't care

I don't care I don't care I don't care
I don't care I don't care I don't care

I don't care I don't care I don't care about this world
I don't care about my girl, I don't care

 

 

I KNOW WHERE SYD BARRETT LIVES (Television Personalities)

There's a little man in a little house
With a little pet dog and a little pet mouse
I know where he lives and I visit him
We have sunday tea, sausages and beans
I know where he lives
Cause I know where Syd Barrett lives

He was very famous once upon a time
But no one knows even if he's alive
But I know where he lives and I visit him
In a little hut in Cambridge
I know where he lives
Cause I know where Syd Barrett lives

And the trees and the flowers are so pretty, aren't they?

He was very famous once upon a time
And no one cares even if he's alive (we do)
But I know where he lives and I visit him
In a little hut by the edge of the wood

Oh shut up!

 

 

I'M IN LOVE WITH YOUR MOM (Vom)

I'm in love for the first time
I'm in love with your mom
Got a lump in the pants for her
I am the Son of Vom

Making out
Shacking up
Your Jazz is really hot
But your mummy
is so yummy
She's something you are not
I'm in love with your Mom

Got my hands on your knockers
Yours are better than some
Yours have never had milk
Not like the ones on your mom

Highschool english
You got an A
You knew your Dickens plot
But your mom
Has been to college
You're just a dropout twat
I'm in love with your Mom

I got my fingers in you baby
Wish they were in your mom
Suckin on her nips thats right
and her suckin on my prong
I'm in love with your Mom

Every night
I get a hard
I beat it till I'm sore
You wonder why
I'm often limp
It's cause I want her more
I'm in love with your Mom

 

 

JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE (Gram Parsons)

I've been thinking
'Bout going to...
Guess it's been useless after all
I'm tired of seeing the days going by
Staring the numbers off my wall

You've been breaking up my head
... instead
So I'm waking up, and turning in my score?
And I just won't make it anymore
No I just can't take it anymore

I heard that once before you were looking for a friend
Who'd take the time to really get to know you

LIKE A ROSE (Lucinda Williams)

It's okay you don't have to be afraid
There's nothing to worry about
'Cause we got it made
It's just a simple matter of
Letting me into love
If you let that feeling come over you
Than there's nothing more that you can do
Jjust let it go
Let it go

If it's love you want
Hold out your arms
It's alright here
It's safe and warm
It's okay to feel good
Thats the way it should be

Everything we have is fresh and new
I will open myself up to you
Like a rose
Like a rose

Everything we have is fresh and new
I will open myself up to you
Like a rose
Like a rose

 

 

LOOKIN' FOR A LOVE (Neil Young)

I've been lookin' for a lover
But I haven't met her yet
She'll be nothing like I pictured her to be
In her eyes I will discover
Another reason why
I want to live and make the best of what I see

Where the sun hits the water
And the mountains meet the sand
There's a beach that I walk along sometimes
And maybe there I'll meet her
And we'll start to say 'hello'
And never stop to think of any other time

Lookin' for a love that's right for me
I don't know how long it's going to be
But I hope I treat her kind
And don't mess with her mind
When she starts to see the darker side of me

Lookin' for a love that's right for me
I don't know how long it's going to be
But I hope I treat her kind
And don't mess with her mind
When she starts to see the darker side of me

I've been lookin' for a lover
But I haven't met her yet
She'll be nothing like I pictured her to be
In her eyes I will discover
Another reason why
I want to live and make the best of what I see

 

 

NIGHTTIME (Big Star)

At nighttime I go out and see the people
Air grows cool I hurry on my way
And dressings are sweet all the people to meet
They're looking at me, all the people to see

And when I set my eyes on you, you look like you're kidding
And when you're in the mood, oh you look so pretty
Caught a glance in your eyes and fell through the skies
Glance in your eyes and fell through the skies

I'm walking down a freezing street, scarf blows out behind
You say get them away, please don't say a word
Get me out of here, get me out of here
I hate it here, get me out of here

At nighttime I go out and see the people
Air grows cool I hurry on my way
And dressings are sweet all the people to meet
They're looking at me, all the people to see

 

 

NOT RIGHT (Iggy Pop & The Stooges)

She's not right
I want somehing I want something tonight
I want something
I want something, all right
But she can't help because she's not right
No, no, no, no
It's always, it's always this way

I'm not right
She wants something she wants something tonight
She wants something
She wants something, all right
But I can't help because I'm not right
No, no, no, no
It's always, it's always this way

 


ONE HUNDRED YEARS FROM NOW (The Byrds - written by Gram Parsons)

One hundred years from this day
Will the people still feel this way?
Still say the things that they're saying right now?
Everyone said I'd hurt you
They said that I'd desert you
If I go away you know I'm gonna get back some how
Nobody knows what kind of trouble we're in
Nobody seems to think it all might happen again

One hundred years from this time
Will anybody change their minds?
And find out one or two things about life?
But people are always talking
You know they're always talking
Everybody's so wrong
That I know it's gonna work out fine.
Nobody knows what kind of trouble we're in
Nobody seems to think it all might happen again

 

 

REAL COOL TIME (Stooges)

Can I come over tonight?
Can I come over tonight?
What do you think I wanna do?
That's right
Can I come over tonight?
I say we will have a real cool time tonight
I say we will have a real cool time tonight
I say we will have a real cool time tonight
I say we will have a real cool time tonight
I said we will have a real cool time tonight
I said we will have a real cool time
We will have a real cool time
A real cool time tonight

 

 

SIDE OF THE ROAD (Lucinda Williams)

You wait in the car on the side of the road
Lemme go and stand a while
I wanna know you're there but I wanna be alone
If only for a minute or two

I wanna see what it feels like to be without you
I wanna know the touch of my own skin
Against the sun, against the wind

I walked out in a field, the grass was high
It brushed against my legs
I just stood and looked out at the open space and a farmhouse out a ways
And I wondered about the people who lived in it
And I wondered if they were happy and content
Were there children and a man and a wife?
Did she love him and take her hair down at night?

If I stray away too far from you, don't go and try to find me
I doesn't mean I don't love you
It doesn't mean I won't come back and stay beside you
It only means I need a little time
To follow that unbroken line
To a place where the wild things grow
To a place where I used to always go

La la la, la la la, la la la, la la la
La la la la, la la la, la la la, la la la
If only for a minute or two
I wanna see what it feels like to be without you
I wanna know the touch of my own skin
Against the sun, against the wind

 

 

SIN CITY (Flying Burrito Brothers - written by Gram Parsons & Chris Hillman)

This old town is filled with sin,
It'll swallow you in
If you've got some money to burn.
Take it home right away,
You've got three years to pay
But Satan is waiting his turn

This old earthquake's gonna leave me in the poor house.
It seems like this whole town's insane
On the thirty-first floor your gold plated door
Won't keep out the Lord's burning rain

The scientists say
It'll all wash away
But we don't believe any more
Cause we've got our recruits
And our green mohair suits
So please show you ID at the door.

A friend came around.
Tried to clean up this town,
His ideas made some people mad.
But he trusted his crowd,
So he spoke right out loud
And they lost the best friend they had

On the thirty-first floor your gold plated door
Won't keep out the Lord's burning rain

 

 

 

THE NIGHT'S TOO LONG (Lucinda Williams)

Sylvia was workin' as a waitress in Beaumont
She said I'm movin' away, I'm gonna get what I want
I'm tired of these small-town boys that don't move fast enough
I'm gonna find me one who wears a leather jacket and likes his livin' rough

So she saved her tips and overtime and bought an old rusty car
She sold most everything she had to make a brand new start
She said I won't be needing these silly dresses and nylon hose
'Cause when I get to where I'm goin' I'm gonna buy me all new clothes

The night's too long, it just drags on and on
And then there's never enough
That's when the sun starts comin' up
Don't let go of her hand
You just might be the right man
She loves the night, She loves the night
She doesn't want the night, don't want it to end
Don't want it to end

 

 

WILL YOU LOVE ME TOMORROW (The Shirelles)

Tonight you're mine completely
You give you love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment's pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun?

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?

So tell me now, and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
