These Are Days 10,000 Maniacs

These are the days

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

Please don't Judas me

Treat me as you like to be treated

Please don't blacklist me

Leave me as you'd wish to find me

Don't analyze me, sacrifice me

Please don't Judas me.

Please don't chastise me

Show me just one shred of kindness

Try to help me see

Guide me in my eyes of blindness

Don't despise me, categorize me

Please don't Judas me.

No, no don't Judas me

No, please don't Judas me

Please don't headshrink me

Don't disguise your innuendos

Make no lies to me

I can see the way the wind blows

Don't deface me, annihilate me

Please don't Judas me.

Please don't number me

Don't betray my trusted promise

Please don't anger me

I find it hard to bear no fairness

Don't frustrate me, manipulate me

Please don't Judas me

No no don't Judas me

No,please don't Judas me.

When my Uncle Sonny blew back into town,

Said "I'll just go for a ride and have a look 'round."

And he took off his fedora,

and stuck his fingers in the crown,

And he pulled out twenty dollars

and he laid that money down.

And he called out to a taxi cab,

"Take me down to central park,

And keep that meter runnin' to the twenty dollar mark."

And he kept his eyes turned forward

and he sat up straight and tall

And no one even noticed him,

no one cared at all.

It's a Fine, Fine Day, for a reunion.

It's a Fine, Fine Day, for comin' home.

You did your sittin', you did hard time.

But you ain't gonna sit no more,

they can't keep you there no more.

It's a Fine, Fine Day

And nothin's gonna take it,

nothin's gonna take it away

It's a Fine, Fine Day.

First time I saw Sonny,

I was just about this tall

And he always made my momma

kinda crazy when he'd call.

Him and my old man

would stand and whisper in the hall

Then they'd disappear,

and maybe not come home at all.

Then one day Sonny stopped comin' round

Heard he'd gotten himself into

a little trouble out in town

Sometime after that

he finaly disappeared for good,

Then he pulled out ol' Houdini,

like we always knew he would!

It's a Fine, Fine Day, for a reunion.

It's a Fine, Fine Day, for comin' home.

You did your sittin', you did hard time.

But you ain't gonna sit no more,

they can't keep you there no more.

It's a Fine, Fine Day

And nothin's gonna take it,

nothin's gonna take it away

It's a Fine, Fine Day.

"I see you made it back alright, alright.

I see you're none the worse for wear

It's been a long time comin'

Nothin's gonna drag you away from here!"

A Fine, Fine Day!

And nothin's gonna take,

nothin's gonna take it away

Oh yeah

A Fine, Fine Day... A Fine Day...

Oh the games people play now

Every night and every day now

Never meaning what they say now

Never saying what they mean

While they wile away the hours

In their ivory towers

Till they're covered up with flowers

In the back of a black limousine

La-da da da da da da da

La-da da da da da da de

Talking 'bout you and me

And the games people play

Oh we make one another cry

Break a heart then we say goodbye

Cross our hearts and we hope to die

That the other was to blame

But neither one will ever give in

So we gaze at our eight by ten

Thinking 'bout the things that might have been

And it's a dirty rotten shame

Now look here

People walking up to you

Singing glory halleluia

And they're tryin to sock it to you

In the name of the Lord

They're gonna teach you how to meditate

Read your horoscope, cheat your faith

And further more to hell with hate

Come on and get on board

Now wait a minute

Look around tell me what you see

What's happening to you and me

God grant me the serenity

To just remember who I am

Cause you've given up your sanity

For your pride and your vanity

Turn your back on humanity

And you don't give a la da da da da da

Bury all your secrets in my skin

Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins

The air around me still feels like a cage

And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

So if you love me, let me go. And run away before I know.

My heart is just too dark to care. I can't destroy what isn't there.

Deliver me into my Fate - If I'm alone I cannot hate

I don't deserve to have you...

My smile was taken long ago / If I can change I hope I never know

I still press your letters to my lips

And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss

I couldn't face a life without your light

But all of that was ripped apart... when you refused to fight

So save your breath, I will not hear. I think I made it very clear.

You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough?

I only wish you weren't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end.

I never claimed to be a Saint...

My own was banished long ago / It took the Death of Hope to let you go

So Break Yourself Against My Stones

And Spit Your Pity In My Soul

You Never Needed Any Help

You Sold Me Out To Save Yourself

And I Won't Listen To Your Shame

You Ran Away - You're All The Same

Angels Lie To Keep Control...

My Love Was Punished Long Ago

If You Still Care, Don't Ever Let Me Know

If you still care, don't ever let me know...

Slipknot-"Snuff"

laya barat laya, ghunghta uthane aaya

apna banane aya, vo

chanda bhi sath laya, taare bhi sath laya

pagal banane ayaa, vo

mera piya ghar aya, o Ramaji

mera piya ghar aya

meri payal chhanke chhan chhan

meri bindiya chamke chham chham

mera kangna khanke khan khan

mera nikala jaaye dam dam

deevani main deevanii, sharam ko chhod dungi

main ab nachungi itna, ki ghungru tod dungi

nazar ka vaar hogaa, jigar ke paar hoga

meri aankhon ke aage mera dildaar hoga

mera dhalta jaye anchal

mera bikhra jaye kajal

mujhe lagta hai ye pal pal

ho jaungi main pagal

kabhi ruthungi us se, kabhi hogi shararat

kabhi koi gussa uska, kabhi hogi mohabbat

dhadakta hai dil mera, na jane kya karun main

kuch hone vala hai jee, na jane kyun darun main

mera dhalta jaaye aanchal, mera bikhra jaye kajal

mera piya ghar aaya

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a rough translation from "Mera Piya Ghar Aaya" (OSA CD Vol. 36 – Piya Ghar Aaya).

I didn't omit anything that he didn't sing, i.e. that between the *asterisks*).

It is from "Bulleh Shah" by JR Puri & TR Shangari (RSSB)

Mera Piya Ghar Aaya (Lyrics: Hazrat Baba Bulleh Shah)

Come, dear friends and, felicitate me on my good fortune!

I have found my consort in my beloved!

Turn away the watchman!

My beloved has come home!

God has made this union possible.

O what a beautiful miracle!

Again and again lie strikes the gong,

And cuts he short the night of union.

If he were to find my heart's desire,

He would throw away the gong, O friends!

Turn away the watchman, O friends!

The un-struck melody resounds sweetly.

The Musician is accomplished, the tune enchanting,

Prayers and fasting are all forgotten,

When the Distiller offers the cup, O friends!

Turn away the watchman, O friends!

*****

Wondrous is the sight of His face!

The pain of my heart has all vanished,

How to extend the length of this night?

Place a wall against the day, O friends!

Turn away the watchman, O friends!

I have no knowledge even of myself;

What do I know where I've reached!

How can this fact remain a secret?

Now has descended the perfect grace!

Turn away the watchman, O friends!

I resorted to many a love-charm;

Magicians of great renown did I call.

Now the Beloved has come to my house.

May I live with Him for eternity!

Turn away the watchman, O friends!

*****

Bulleh Shah's nuptial bed of the Spouse is dear.

O friends, the Savior has redeemed me!

With what an anguish my turn has come!

Now it is hard ever to leave Him.

Turn away the watchman, O friends!

Today my precious, my Beloved has come home.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He was born in 1680 A.D. in Punjab to a preacher Baba Shah Muhammad. Shah Muhammad was a scholar in his own right (Arabic, Persian, Islam, Sufism, etc). It was from him that Baba Bulleh Shah and his sister got their influence. His name was Abdullah Shah but his nickname was Bullah or Bulleh Shah.

"Reflections"

Through the mirror of my mind

Time after time

I see reflections of you and me

Reflections of

The way life used to be

Reflections of

The love you took from me

Oh, I'm all alone now

No love to shield me

Trapped in a world

That's a distorted reality

Happiness you took from me

And left me alone

With only memories

Through the mirror of my mind

Through these tears that I'm crying

Reflects a hurt I can't control

'Cause although you're gone

I keep holding on

To the happy times

Oh, when you were mine

As I peer through the window

Of lost time

Looking over my yesterdays

And all the love I gave all in vain

(All the love) All the love

That I've wasted

(All the tears) All the tears

That I've tasted

All in vain

Through the hollow of my tears

I see a dream that's lost

From the hurt

That you have caused

Everywhere I turn

Seems like everything I see

Reflects the love that used to be

In you I put

All my faith and trust

Right before my eyes

My world has turned to dust

After all the nights

I sat alone and wept

Just a handful of promises

Are all that's left of loving you

Reflections of

The way life used to be

Reflections of

The love you took from me

In you I put

All my faith and trust

Right before my eyes

My world has turned to dust

Dogs - Pink Floyd

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need

You gotta sleep on your toes, and when youre on the street

You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed

And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight

You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

And after a while, you can work on points for style

Like the club tie, and the firm handshake

A certain look in the eye, and an easy smile

You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to

So that when they turn their backs on you

Youll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder

You know its going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you get older

And in the end youll pack, fly down south

Hide your head in the sand

Just another sad old man

All alone and dying of cancer.

And when you loose control, youll reap the harvest that youve sown

And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone

And its too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around

So have a good drown, as you go down alone

Dragged down by the stone.

I gotta admit that Im a little bit confused

Sometimes it seems to me as if Im just being used

Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake of this creeping malaise

If I dont stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?

Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending

That everyones expendable and no-one had a real friend

And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner

And you believe at heart, everyones a killer.

Who was born in a house full of pain

Who was trained not to spit in the fan

Who was told what to do by the man

Who was broken by trained personnel

Who was fitted with collar and chain

Who was given a seat in the stand

Who was breaking away from the pack

Who was only a stranger at home

Who was ground down in the end

Who was found dead on the phone

Who was dragged down by the stone.

YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Choir:

I saw her today at a reception

A glass of wine in her hand

I knew she would meet her connection

At her feet was her footloose man

No, you can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

And if you try sometime you find

You get what you need

I saw her today at the reception

A glass of wine in her hand

I knew she was gonna meet her connection

At her feet was, footloose man

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometimes, well you might find

You get what you need

Oh yea-ay (hey-hey-hey, oooh)

And I went down to the demonstration

To get my fair share of abuse

Singin', 'We're gonna vent our frustration

If we don't, we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse'

Sing it to me, now

(You can't always get what you want)

(You can't always get what you want)

(You can't always get what you want)

But if you try sometimes, well you just might find

You get what you need

Ooh baby, yeah, ooh

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore

To get your prescription filled

I was standin' in line with Mr. Jimmy

A-man, did he look pretty ill

We decided that we would have a soda

My favorite flavor, cherry red

I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy

Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was 'dead'

I said to him

(You can't always get what you want) well no!

(You can't always get what you want) tell ya baby

(You can't always get what you want) no

But if you try sometimes, you just might find, mmm!

Mmm! you get what you need

Ooh yes! Woo!

(Instrumental & choir) Ooow-ooh!

You get what you need

Yeah!

Ooow, babe!

Ooh, yeah

I saw her today at the reception

In her glass was a bleeding man

She was practiced at the art of deception

Well, I could tell by her blood-stained hands

Say it!

(You can't always get what you want) yeah!

(You can't always get a-what you want) ooo-yeah, baby!

(You can't always get a-what you want)

But if you try sometime, you just might find

You just might find

You get what you need

Ooh, yeah!

Ooh, baby!

Woo!

Ah, you can't always get a-what you want

No, no baby

You can't always get a-what you want

Tellin' you right now

You can't always get what you want, mmm!

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You just might find, that ya

Get what you need

Oooh, yeah!

I'm tellin' the truth, babe

Ooow-ooh!

Ooow-ooh!

Ooow-ooh!........

Cowgirl in the sand - Neil Young

Hello cowgirl in the sand

Is this place

at your command

Can I stay here

for a while

Can I see your

sweet sweet smile

Old enough now

to change your name

When so many love you

is it the same?

It's the woman in you

that makes you want

to play this game.

Hello ruby in the dust

Has your band

begun to rust

After all

the sin we've had

I was hopin' that

we'd turn back

Old enough now

to change your name

When so many love you

is it the same

It's the woman in you

that makes you want

to play this game.

Hello woman of my dreams

This is not

the way it seems

Purple words

on a grey background

To be a woman

and to be turned down

Old enough now

to change your name

When so many love you

is it the same

It's the woman in you

that makes you want

to play this game.

How's it going "Puck Slapping Maple Sucker?" I've always loved the lyrics to "No No Song/Skokiaan" by RINGO STARR. It goes llike this as follows:

NO NO SONG/SKOKIAAN

Music and Lyrics by Axton/Jackson/Msarurgwa

A lady that I know just came from Columbia

She smiled because I did not understand

Then she held out some marijuana ha-ha

She said it was the best in all the land

And I said:

No no no no I don't smoke it no more

I'm tired of waking up on the floor

No thank you please

It only makes me sneeze

And then it makes it hard to find the door.

A woman that I know just came from

Majorca, Spain

She smiled because I did not understand

Then she held out a 10 pound bag of Cocaine

She said it was the best in all the land

And I said:

No no no no I don't sniff it no more

I'm tired of waking up on the floor

No thank you please

It only makes me sneeze

And then it makes it hard to find the door.

A man I know just came from Nashville,

Tennessee oh

He smiled because I did not understand

Then he held out some moonshine whiskey

oh-oh

He said it was the best in all the land

And I said:

No no no no I don't drink it no more

I'm tired of waking up on the floor

No thank you please

It only makes me sneeze

And then it makes it hard to find the door

Have a great F-R-I-D-A-Y and ROCK ON!

Pink Houses by John Mellencamp

There's a black man with a black cat

Livin' in a black neighborhood

He's got an interstate

Runnin' through his front yard

You know he thinks that he's got it so good

And there's a woman in the kitchen

Cleanin' up the evenin' slop

And he looks at her and says, hey darlin'

I can remember when you could stop a clock

Oh, but ain't that America

For you and me

Ain't that America

Something to see, baby

Ain't that America

Home of the free, yeah

Little pink houses

For you and me

Oooh, yeah

For you and me

Well, there's a young man in a t-shirt

Listenin' to a rockin' rollin' station

He's got greasy hair, greasy smile

He says, Lord this must be my destination

'Cause they told me when I was younger

Said boy, you're gonna be president

But just like everything else

Those old crazy dreams

Just kinda came and went

Oh, but ain't that America

For you and me

Ain't that America

Something to see, baby

Ain't that America

Home of the free, yeah

Little pink houses

For you and me

Oooh, little baby

For you and me

Well, there's people and more people

What do they know, know, know

Go to work in some high rise

And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico

Ooh, yeah

And there's winners and there's losers

But they ain't no big deal

'Cause the simple man, baby

Pays for thrills

The bills the pills that kill

Oh, but ain't that America

For you and me

Ain't that America

Something to see, baby

Ain't that America

Home of the free, yeah

Little pink houses

For you and me

Oooh

Ooooh, yeah...

Lily Allen: "Knock 'Em Out"

Alright, so this is a song about anyone. It could be anyone. You're just doing your own this and someone comes out the blue

They're like Alright what you saying yeah can I take your digits

And you're like no not in a million years you're nasty

Please leave me alone

Cut to the pub on the lad's night out

Man at the bar 'cos it was his shout

Clocks this bird and she looked ok

She caught him looking and walked his way

"Alright darling you're gonna buy us a drink then?"

"Erh no but I was thinking about buying one for your friend"

She's got no taste hand on his waist

Tries to pull away but her lips on his face

"If you insist I'll have a white wine spritzer"

"Sorry love you ain't a pretty picture"

Can't knock 'em out

Can't walk away

And no you can't have my number

She's like "Oh here we go"

It's a routine check that she already knows

She's thinking "There all the same"

"Yeah you alright baby, you look alright still. Yeah what's your name?"

She looks in her bag takes out a fag

Tries to get away from the guy on a blag

Can't find a light "Here use mine"

"See the thing is I just don't have the time"

Can't knock 'em out

Can't walk away

Try desperately to think of the politest way to say

Just get out my face

Just leave me alone

And no you can't have my number

Go away now

Let me go

Are you stupid

Or just a little slow

Go away now

"I don't think so. No It's not gonna happen. Not in a million years"

You can't knock 'em out

Can't walk away

Try desperately to think of the politest way to say

Just get out my face

Just leave me alone

And no you can't have my number

'Cos I lost my phone

Can't knock 'em out

Living on a lighted stage

Approaches the unreal

For those who think and feel

In touch with some reality

Beyond the gilded cage

Cast in this unlikely role,

Ill-equipped to act

With insufficient tact

One must put up barriers

To keep oneself intact

Living in the limelight

The universal dream

For those who wish to seem

Those who wish to be

Must put aside the alienation

Get on with the fascination

The real relation

The underlying theme

Living in a fisheye lens

Caught in the camera eye

I have no heart to lie

I cant pretend a stranger

Is a long-awaited friend

All the worlds indeed a stage

And we are merely players

Performers and portrayers

Each anothers audience

Outside the gilded cage

Brilliant Disguise by Bruce Springsteen

I hold you in my arms as the band plays

What are those words whispered baby as you turn away

I saw you last night out on the edge of town

I wanna read your mind and know just what I've got in this new thing I've found

So tell me what I see when I look in your eyes

Is that you baby or just a brilliant disguise

I heard somebody call your name from underneath our willow

I saw something tucked in shame underneath your pillow

Well I've tried so hard baby but I just can't see

What a woman like you is doing with me

So tell me who I see when I look in your eyes

Is that you baby or just a brilliant disguise

Now look at me baby struggling to do everything right

And then it all falls apart oh when out go the lights

I'm just a lonely pilgrim I walk this world in wealth

I want to know if it's you I don't trust cause I damn sure don't trust

Myself

Now you play the loving woman I'll play the faithful man

But just don't look too close into the palm of my hand

We stood at the altar the gypsy swore our future was right

But come the wee wee hours well maybe baby the gypsy lied

So when you look at me you better look hard and look twice

Is that me baby or just a brilliant disguise

Tonight our bed is cold

I'm lost in the darkness of our love

God have mercy on the man

Who doubts what he's sure of

Keep On With The Force Don't Stop

by Michael Jackson

Lovely, is the feeling now.

Fever, temperature's rising now.

Power, is the force the vow.

.....

Keep on, with the force don't stop.

Don't stop 'til you get enough.

Keep on, with the force don't stop.

Don't stop 'til you get enough...

(Then, back to the first phrase.)

Poem On The Underground Wall

by Simon & Garfunkel

The last train is nearly due.

The underground is closing soon.

And in the dark, deserted station,

Restless with anticipation.

A man waits in the shadows ...

Tangerine

by Jimmy Page

"Measuring a summer's day,

I only finds it slips away...to grey.

The hours, they bring me pain..."

[[o, jimmy,] "thou art more lovely and more temperate...(Shakespeare Sonnet #18)"]

Surrender

by Emily Dickinson

Emily.jpg

Doubt me, my dim companion!

Why God would be content

With but a fraction of the love

Poured thee without a stint.

The whole of me, forever,

What more the woman can, --

Say quick, that I may dower thee

With last delight I own!

It cannot be my spirit,

For that was thine before;

I ceded all of dust I knew, --

What opulence the more

Had I, a humble maiden,

Whose farthest of degree

Was that she might,

Some distant heaven,

Dwell timidly with thee!

Don't try to explain your mind

I know what's happening here

One minute it's love

And suddenly it's like a battle-field

One word turns into a

Why is it the smallest things that tear us down

My world's nothing when you don't

I'm not here without a shield

Can't go back now

Both hands tied behind my back with nothing

Oh no, these times when we climb so fast to fall again

Why we gotta fall for it now

I never meant to start a war

You know I never wanna hurt you

Don't even know what we're fighting for

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield?

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield?

Why does love always feel like..

Can't swallow our pride,

Neither of us wanna raise that flag, mhmm

If we can't surrender then we both gonna lose what we had, oh no

Both hands tied behind my back with nothing

Oh no, these times when we climb so fast to fall again

I don't wanna fall for it now

I never meant to start a war

You know I never wanna hurt you

Don't even know what we're fighting for

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield?

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield?

I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor

I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor

I guess you better go and get your...

We could pretend that we are friends tonight (oh-oh-oh)

And in the morning we'll wake up and we'll be alright

Cause baby we don't have to fight

And I don't want this love to feel like..

A battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield,

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield

I guess you better go and get your armor...

I never meant to start a war

You know I never wanna hurt you

Don't even know what we're fighting for (fighting, fighting for)

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield?

Why does love always feel like a battlefield, a battlefield, a battlefield?

I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor

I guess you better go and get your armor, (get your armor) get your armor

Why does love always feel like...

Why does love always feel like...

A battlefield, a battlefield..

I never meant

to start a war

Don't even know

What we're fighting for

I never meant

to start a war

Don't even know

What we're fighting for
