Something we use to sing at school many many moons ago,

"Say what you will

School dinners make you ill

Davy Crockett died of Shepherds pie

And school din din's, made from pig swill

Out of town"

Jack Hargreaves? what a Great Man?

Harry's House (lyrics and music Joni Mitchell)*

Heatwaves on the runway

As the wheels set down

He takes his baggage off the carousel

He takes a taxi into town

Yellow schools of taxi fishes

Jonah in a ticking whale

Caught up at the light in the fishnet windows

Of Bloomingdale's

Watching those high fashion girls

Skinny black models with raven curls

Beauty parlor blondes with credit card eyes

Looking for the chic and the fancy to buy

He opens up his suitcase

In the continental suite

And people twenty stories down

Colored currents in the street

A helicopter lands on the Pan Am roof

Like a dragonfly on a tomb

And business men in button downs

Press into conference rooms

Battalions of paper minded males

Talking commodities and sales

While at home their paper wives

And paper kids

Paper the walls to keep their gut reactions hid

Yellow checkers for the kitchen

Climbing ivy for the bath

She is lost in House and Gardens

He's caught up in Chief of Staff

He drifts off into the memory

Of the way she looked in school

With her body oiled and shining

At the public swimming pool ...

... Shining hair and shining skin

Shining as she reeled him in

To tell him like she did today

Just what he could do with Harry's House

And Harry's take home pay......

*Crazy Crow Music

Sweet joni and her profound lyrics........:) missy

Well, we all need someone we can lean on

And if you want it, you can lean on me

Yeah, we all need someone we can lean on

And if you want it, you can lean on me

When you drunk my health in scented jasmine tea

These Are Days ~ 10,000 Maniacs

These are days you’ll remember

Never before and never since, I promise

Will the whole world be warm as this

And as you feel it,

You’ll know it’s true

That you are blessed and lucky

It’s true that you

Are touched by something

That will grow and bloom in you

These are days that you’ll remember

When May is rushing over you

With desire to be part of the miracles

You see in every hour

You’ll know it’s true

That you are blessed and lucky

It’s true that you are touched

By something that will grow and bloom in you

These are days

These are the days you might fill

With laughter until you break

These days you might feel

A shaft of light

Make its way across your face

And when you do

Then you’ll know how it was meant to be

See the signs and know their meaning

It's true

Then you’ll know how it was meant to be

Hear the signs and know they’re speaking

To you, to you

Rush - Red Tide

Nature has some new plague

To run in our streets

History some new wrinkle

We are doomed to repeat

Fugitives at the bedroom door

Lovers pause to find an open store

Rain is burning on the forest floor

And the red tide kisses the shore

THIS IS NOT A FALSE ALARM

THIS IS NOT A TEST

Stay out of the sun

It only burns my skin

Sky full of poison

And the atmosphere's too thin

Bless the sun, the rain no more

River running like an open sore

Black wind falling to the ocean floor

And the red tide washes ashore

THIS IS NOT A FALSE ALARM

THIS IS NOT A TEST

Nowhere we can fly away

Nowhere we can rest

The party is disrupted by

An uninvited guest

Deadline approaches

For the weary land

It used to be something

But we let it run down in our hands

Too late for debate, too bad to ignore

Quiet rebellion leads to open war

Bring a sea-change to the factory floor

As the red tide covers the shore

Now's the time to turn the tide

Now's the time to fight

Let us not go gently

To the endless winter night

Now's the time to make the time

While hope is still in sight

Let us not go gently

To the endless winter night

Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus

Reach out and touch faith

Your own personal Jesus

Someone to hear your prayers

Someone who cares

Your own personal Jesus

Someone to hear your prayers

Someone who's there

Feeling unknown

And you're all alone

Flesh and bone

By the telephone

Lift up the receiver

I'll make you a believer

Take second best

Put me to the test

Things on your chest

You need to confess

I will deliver

You know I'm a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith

Reach out and touch faith

Your own personal Jesus

Someone to hear your prayers

Someone who cares

Your own personal Jesus

Someone to hear your prayers

Someone who's there

Feeling unknown

And you're all alone

Flesh and bone

By the telephone

Lift up the receiver

I'll make you a believer

I will deliver

You know I'm a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith

Rush - Out of the Cradle

It's not a place

It's a yearning

It's not a race

It's a journey

It's not an act

It's attraction

It's not a style

It's an action

It's a dream for the waking

It's a flower touched by flame

It's a gift for the giving

It's a power with a hundred names

Surge of energy, spark of inspiration

The breath of love is electricity

Maybe time is bird in flight

Endlessly mocking

Here we come out of the cradle

Endlessly rocking

Endlessly rocking

It's a hand

That rocks the cradle

It's a motion

That swings the sky

It's method on the edge of madness

It's a balance on the edge of a knife

It's a smile on the edge of sadness

It's a dance on the edge of life

Endlessly rocking

I am your only friend

I'm not your only friend

But I'm a little glowing friend

But really I'm not actually your friend

But I am

Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch

Who watches over you

Make a little birdhouse in your soul

Not to put too fine a point on it

Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet

Make a little birdhouse in your soul

I have a secret to tell

From my electrical well

It's a simple message and I'm leaving out the whistles and bells

So the room must listen to me

Filibuster vigilantly

My name is blue canary one note spelled L-I-T-E

My story's infinite

Like longines symphonette it doesn't rest

Blue canary in the outlet by the lightswitch

Who watches over me

Make a little birdhouse in your soul

Not to put too fine a point on it

Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet

Make a little birdhouse in your soul

I am your only friend I'm not your only friend

But I'm a little glowing friend

But really I'm not actually your friend

But I am...............CONTINUED BELOW

........There's a picture opposite me

Of my primitive ancestry

Which stood on rocky shores and kept the beaches shipwreck free

Though I respect that a lot

I'd be fired if that were my job

After killing jason off and countless screaming argonauts

Blue bird of friendliness

Like a guardian angels it's always here

(And while you're at it keep the nightlight on in the birdhouse in your soul)

Not to put too fine a point on it

Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet

Make a little birdhouse in your soul

Blue canary in the outlet by the lightswitch

(And while your at it)

Who watches over me

(Keep the nightlight on in the)

Make a little birdhouse in your soul

(Birdhouse in your soul)

Repeat last two verses until the end.

"Three Days" Janes Addiction

Three days was the morning. My focus three days old. My head, it landed To the sounds of cricket bows...

I am proud man anyway... Covered now by three days...

Three ways was the morning. Three lovers, in three ways. We knew when she landed, Three days she'd stay.

I am a proud man anyway... Covered now by three days...

We saw shadows of the morning light the shadows of the evening sun till the shadows and the light were one.

Shadows of the morning light the shadows of the evening sun till the shadows and the light were one...

True hunting is over. No herds to follow. Without game, men prey on each other. The family weakens by the bite we swallow...

True leaders gone, Of land and people. We choose no kin but adopted strangers. The family weakens by the length we travel...

All of us with wings... All of us with wings... All of us with wings! All of us with wings! All of us with wings! All of us with wings!

Erotic Jesus lays with his Marys. Loves his Marys. Bits of puzzle, Fitting each other.

All now with wings!

Oh my Marys! Never wonder... Night is shelter For nudity's shiver...

All now with wings...

Judas Priest - Breaking The Law

"There I was completely wasting, out of work and down

all inside it's so frustrating as I drift from town to town

feel as though nobody cares if I live or die

so I might as well begin to put some action in my life

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

So much for the golden future, I can't even start

I've had every promise broken, there's anger in my heart

you don't know what it's like, you don't have a clue

if you did you'd find yourselves doing the same thing too

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

You don't know what it's like.....

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law, breaking the law

Breaking the law......"

You can fool yourself

You can cheat until you're blind

You can cut your heart

It can happen

You can mend the wires

You can feed the soul apart

You reach

It can happen to you

It can happen to me

It can happen to everyone eventually

It's a constant fight

A constant fight

You're pushing the needle to the red

Black and white

Who knows who's right

No substitute you're born you're dead

Fly by night

Created out of fantasy

Our destinations call

Look up - Look down

Look out - Look around

Look up - Look down

There's a crazy world outside

We're not about to lose our pride

It can happen to you

It can happen to me

It can happen to everyone eventually

As you happen to say

It can happen today

As it happens

It happens in every way

This world I like

We architects of life

A song a sigh

Developing words that linger

Through fields of green through open eyes

This for us to see

Look up - Look down

Look out - Look around

So look up - Look down

There's a crazy world outside

We're not about to lose our pride

It can happen to you

It can happen to me

It can happen to everyone eventually

As you happen to say

It can happen today

As it happens

It happens in every way

As you happen to see

It will happen to be

Nothing happens to nowhere and nowhere

Look up - Look down

There's a crazy world outside

We're not about to lose our pride

It can happen to you

It can happen to me

It can happen to everyone eventually

As you happen to see

It will happen to be

Nothing happens to nowhere and nowhere

You can fool yourself

You can cheat until you're blind

You can cut your heart

You can fool yourself It can happen to you

You can cheat until you're blind It can happen to me

You can cut your heart It can happen to eveyone eventually

As you happen to say

It can happen today

As it happens

It happens in every way

You can mend the wires

You can feed the soul apart

You can touch your life

You can bring your soul alive

It can happen to you

It can happen to me

It can happen to everyone eventually

As you happen to say

It can happen today

As it happens

It happens in every way

Terrapin station - lady with a fan

Let my inspiration flow in token rhyme, suggesting rhythm,

That will not forsake you, till my tale is told and done.

While the firelights aglow, strange shadows from the flames will grow,

Till things weve never seen will seem familiar.

Shadows of a sailor, forming winds both foul and fair all swarm.

Down in carlisle, he loved a lady many years ago.

Here beside him stands a man, a soldier from the looks of him,

Who came through many fights, but lost at love.

While the story teller speaks, a door within the fire creaks;

Suddenly flies open, and a girl is standing there.

Eyes alight, with glowing hair, all that fancy paints as fair,

She takes her fan and throws it, in the lions den.

Which of you to gain me, tell, will risk uncertain pains of hell?

I will not forgive you if you will not take the chance.

The sailor gave at least a try, the soldier being much too wise,

Strategy was his strength, and not disaster.

The sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him.

That's how it stands today. you decide if he was wise.

The story teller makes no choice. soon you will not hear his voice.

His job is to she'd light, and not to master.

Since the end is never told, we pay the teller off in gold,

In hopes he will return, but he cannot be bought or sold.

Terrapin station

Inspiration, move me brightly. light the song with sense and color;

Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.

Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last.

Some rise, some fall, some climb, to get to terrapin.

Counting stars by candlelight, all are dim but one is bright;

The spiral light of venus, rising first and shining best,

On, from the northwest corner, of a brand new crescent moon,

While crickets and cicadas sing, a rare and different tune,

Terrapin station.

In the shadow of the moon, terrapin station.

And I know well get there soon, terrapin station.

I can't figure out, terrapin, if it's the end or beginning, terrapin,

But the trains put it's brakes on, terrapin,

And the whistle is screaming, terrapin.

Terrapin station - at the siding

While you were gone, these faces filled with darkness.

The obvious was hidden. with nothing to believe in,

Sullen wings of fortune beat like rain.

Youre back in terrapin for good or I'll again, for good or I'll again.

Take me through the centuries to supersonic years.

Electrifying enemy is drowning in his tears

All I have to give you is a love that never dies

The symptom of the universe is written in your eyes

Mother goose is calling me back to her silver womb

Father of creation takes me from my stolen tomb

Seventh hundredth unicorn is waiting in the sky

The symptom of the universe, a love that never dies

Take my hand my child of love come step inside my tears

Swim the magic ocean I've been crying all these years

With our love we'll ride away into eternal skies

The symptom of the universe, a love that never dies

Oh my child of love's creation, come and step inside my dreams

In your eyes I see no sadness, you are all that loving means

Take my hand and we'll go riding through the sunshine from above

We'll find happiness together in the summer skies of love.

I am forever searching high and low

But why does everybody tell me no

Neptune of the seas an answer for me please

The lily of the valley doesn't know

I lie and wait with open eyes

I carry on thru' stormy skies

I follow ev'ry course my kingdom for a horse

But each time I grow old

Serpent of the Nile relieve me for a while

And cast me from your spell, let me go

Messenger from seven seas has flown

To tell the king of Rhye he's lost his throne

Wars will never cease

Is there time enough for peace?

The lily of the valley doesn't know.

Toledo was just another good stop

Along the good king's highway

My fortification took me by surprise

And hit me sending me sideways

Spellbound - Roundly - Good for sunshine

Can't help thinking

Singing the Rule Britannia

And this is where it grabs you

There's method in the key of C

Toledo's got to be the silver city

In this good country

Our song

It gives us a reason

Our song

That good remedy

Music has magic

That stuff of syncopation

Ever tried driving it to golden heights

Just simply jiving it

My mystification it got a

Jewel skies crazy spacing it

Hot sun - Crowded - Screams high voices

Singing speechless

Touching of the healing heart

So this is where we really start

Music is a shout of foregone conclusions

As long as music plays its part

Good good part

Our song

It gives us a reason

Our song

That good remedy

Music has magic

It's good clear syncopation

Treat it good

Treat it rightly

And if you get it flowing

The harmony is glowing

So get ready

So get ready

Don't go toledo toledo don't go

Music - Good to you

Music - Good to you

Reflex in the sky

Warn you you're gonna die

Storm coming, you better hide

From the atomic tide

Flashes in the sky

Turns houses into sties

Turns people into clay

Radiation minds decay

Robot minds of robot slaves

Lead men to atomic graves

Plastic flowers melt in sun

Fading moon falls upon

Dying world of radiation

Victims of mad frustration

Burning glow of obscene fire

Like electric funeral pyre

Buildings crashing down

To Earth's cracking ground

Rivers turn to wood Eyes melt into blood

Earth lies in death bed

Clouds cry for the dead

Terrifying rain

Ease the burning pain

Electric Funeral Electric Funeral Electric Funeral Electric Funeral

And so in the sky .......Shines the electric eye .....Supernatural king

Takes Earth under his wing .......Heaven's golden chorus sings

Hell's angels flap their wings ......Evil souls fall to Hell Ever trapped in burning cells!

Seek him here, seek him on the highway

Never knowing when he'll appear

All await, engine's ticking over

Hear the roar as they sense the fear

Wheels a glint of steel and a flash of light

Screams from a streak of fire as he strikes

Hell bent, hell bent for leather

Hell bent, hell bent for leather

Black as night, faster than a shadow

Crimson flare from a raging sun

An exhibition, of sheer precision

Yet no one knows from where he comes

Fools self destruct cannot take that crown

Dreams crash one by one to the ground

Hell bent, hell bent for leather

Hell bent, hell bent for leather

There's many who tried to prove that they're faster

But they didn't last and they died as they tried

There's many who tried to prove that they're faster

But they didn't last and they died as they tried

Hell bent, hell bent for leather

Hell bent, hell bent for leather

Hell bent, hell bent for leather

Hell bent, hell bent for leather

When the ebbing tide retreats

Along the rocky shoreline

It leaves a trail of tidal pools

In a short-lived galaxy

Each microcosmic planet

A complete society

A simple kind mirror

To reflect upon our own

All the busy little creatures

Chasing out their destinies

Living in their pools

They soon forget about the sea...

Wheels within wheels in a spiral array

A pattern so grand and complex

Time after time we lose sight of the way

Our causes can't see their effects

A quantum leap forward

In time and in space

The universe learned to expand

The mess and the magic

Triumphant and tragic

A mechanized world out of hand

Computerized clinic

For superior cynics

Who dance to a synthetic band

In their own image

Their world is fashioned

No wonder they don't understand

Science, like nature

Must also be tamed

With a view towards its preservation

Given the same

State of integrity

It will surely serve us well

Art as expression

Not as market campaigns

Will still capture our imaginations

Given the same

State of integrity

It will surely help us along

The most endangered species

The honest man

Will still survive annihilation

Forming a world

State of integrity

Sensitive, open and strong

Wave after wave will flow with the tide

And bury the world as it does

Tide after tide will flow and recede

Leaving life to go on as it was...

Old man lying by the side of the road With the lorries rolling by, Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load And the buildings scrape the sky, Cold wind ripping down the alley at dawn And the morning paper flies, Dead man lying by the side of the road With the daylight in his eyes.

Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Find someone who's turning And you will come around.

Blind man running through the light of the night With an answer in his hand, Come on down to the river of sight And you can really understand, Red lights flashing through the window in the rain, Can you hear the sirens moan? White cane lying in a gutter in the lane, If you're walking home alone.

Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Just find someone who's turning And you will come around.

Don't let it bring you down It's only castles burning, Just find someone who's turning And you will come around.
