Ain't No Sunshine - Bill Withers

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone.

It's not warm when she's away.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

and she's always gone too long anytime she goes away.

Wonder this time where she's gone,

wonder if she's gone to stay

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

and this house just ain't no home anytime she goes away.

And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

Hey, I ought to leave the young thing alone,

but ain't no sunshine when she's gone, only darkness everyday.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone,

and this house just ain't no home anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.

Anytime she goes away.

Far From Home-Hinder

You said I’m always saying sorry for the same old things

I’m sorry for the drugs and how much I drink

You said I say it so much it doesn’t mean anything

I’m sorry, my love, but I had to leave

I hope most of you will never know what it’s like to let a love go

Leaving everything at home, everything you’ve ever known

I can’t fix this from a phone

I’m sorry you feel so alone

It’s like I told you, “You’re better off without me, I’m sick of saying sorry.”

So far from home

You keep calling and complaining that I just don’t care

But would you say that if I was there?

It’s that picture you keep painting that’s causing your tears

I could set you straight if you were here

I hope most of you will never know what it’s like to let a love go

Leaving everything at home, everything you’ve ever known

I can’t fix this from a phone

I’m sorry you feel so alone

It’s like I told you, “You’re better off without me, I’m sick of saying sorry.”

I don’t want to string you along

And that’s why I’m letting you go

It’s like I told you, “You’re better off without me, I’m sick of saying sorry.”

So far from home

And I don’t know how many times I talked to you

And I can’t count how many fights I fought with you

I don’t want to string you along

That’s why I’m letting you go

It’s like I told you, “You’re better off without me, I’m sick of saying sorry.”

I can’t fix this from a phone

I’m sorry you feel so alone

It’s like I told you, “You’re better off without me, I’m sick of saying sorry.”

I don’t want to string you along

That’s why I’m letting you go

It’s like I told you, “You’re better off without me, I’m sick of saying sorry.”

So far from home

You dont need no periscope

You wont need second sight

Itll come at you so fast my friend

Its thank you and goodnight

Caught in the river

Can't stop the flood

Thats the power of money, paper blood

No matter what youve said or done

The measure of success

Is how much you can charge it on

Four Seasons In One Day-Neil & Tim Finn

Four seasons in one day

Lying in the depths of your imagination

Worlds above and worlds below

The sun shines on the black clouds hanging over the domain

Even when youre feeling warm

The temperature could drop away

Like four seasons in one day

Smiling as the shit comes down

You can tell a man from what he has to say

Everything gets turned around

And I will risk my neck again, again

You can take me where you will

Up the creek and through the mill

All the things you cant explain

Four seasons in one day

Blood dries up

Like rain, like rain

Fills my cup

Like four seasons in one day

It doesnt pay to make predictions

Sleeping on an unmade bed

Finding out wherever there is comfort there is pain

Only one step away

Like four seasons in one day

Blood dries up

Like rain, like rain

Fills my cup

Like four seasons in one day

Taking it back to where it belongs....

Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans

Way back up in the woods among the evergreens

There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood

Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode

Who never ever learned to read or write so well

But he could play the guitar just like ringing a bell

Go Go

Go Johnny Go

Go Go

Johnny B. Goode

He use to carry his guitar in a gunny sack

Gp sit beneath the tree by the railroad track

Oh, the engineers used to see him sitting in the shade

Playing to the rhythm that the drivers made

People passing by would stop and say

Oh my that little country boy could play

Go Go

Go Johnny Go

Go Go

Johnny B. Goode

His mama told him someday he would be a man

And he would be the leader of a big old band

Many people coming from miles around

To hear you play your music when the sun go down

Maybe someday your name will be in lights

Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight

Go Go

Go Johnny Go

Go Go

Johnny B. Goode

Adam's Apple-Aerosmith

Back when Cain was able

Way before the stable

Lighting struck right down from the sky

A mother ship with fate said let's give it a try

Conscience was related

Man he was created

Lady luck took him by surprise

A sweet and bitter fruit it surely opened his eyes

Well she ate it

Lordy it was love at first bite

Well she ate it

Never knowin wrong from right right right

Even Eve in Eden

Voices tried deceiving

With lies that showed the lady the way

At first she stopped and turned and tried to walk away

Man he was believer

Lady was deceiver

So the story goes but you see

The snake was he and she just climbed right up his tree

So she ate it

Lordy it was love at first bite

Well she ate it

Never knowin wrong from right right right

Whooooaaa......

Conscience was related

Man he was created

When lady luck took him by surprise

The sweet and bitter fruit it surely opened his eyes

Evil came like reignin

Who knows who's to blamin

Something tried to lay her to waste

And all she want and need was just a little taste

Whooa, she ate it

Lordy it was love at first bite

Well she ate it

Never knowin wrong from right right right

Well she ate it

Lordy it was love at first bite

Yeah she ate it

Never knowin wrong from right right

Oh that's right

Excellent! :D:cheer::hurrah:

Broken Hearts are for Assholes

Frank Zappa

Hey! do you know what you are?

Youre an asshole! an asshole!

Some of you might not agree

Cause you probably likes a lot of misery

But think a while and you will see...

Broken hearts are for assholes

Broken hearts are for assholes

Are you an asshole?

Broken hearts are for assholes

Are you an asshole too?

Whatcha gonna do, cause you're an asshole...

Maybe you think you're a lonely guy

Maybe you think you're too tough to cry

So you went to the grape,

Just to give it a try

And dagmar

Without a doubt, the ugliest sonofabitch I ever saw in my life

Was his name...

One two three four!

The whiskers sticking out from underneath of his

Pancake make-up

And yet he was a beautiful lady

Nearly drove you insane

Lets talk about leather: leatherrrrrr

And so you kissed a little sailor

Tex abel, starring in the latest shepperton production:

Who had just blew in from spain

Sir richard pump-a-loaf

You sniffed the reeking buns of angel

The story of a demented bread-boffer

And acted like it was cocaine

Cucumber pud annexed to a fine whole-wheat loaf

You were dazzled by the exciting new costume of ko-ko

Then on tuesday night, ceasars back in town

In a way you can't explain

Facing off in a no-holds-barred tag team grudge match

With kona.

And so you worked the wall with michael

Three-hundred-seventy-nine pounds of samoan dynamite

Which gave your back an awful strain

Volcanic hell

But you came back on sunday for the gong show

Next thursday, teen towns finest...

But you forgot what I was sayin

Cause you're an asshole, you're an asshole

That's right

Youre an asshole, you're an asshole

Yes, yes

Youre an asshole, you're an asshole

That's right

Youre an asshole, you're an asshole

Now you been to the grape n you been to the chest

N now I think you know what you are: you're an asshole

You say you can't live with what you been through

Well, ladies you can be an asshole too

You might pretend you aint got one on the bottom of you,

But don't fool yerself girl

Its lookin at you

Don't fool yerself girl

Its winkin at you

Don't fool yerself girl

Its blinkin at you

That's why I say

Im gonna ram it, ram it, ram it

Ram it up yer poop chute

Corn hole

Ram it, ram it, ram it

Ram it up yer poop chute

Fist fuck

Ram it, ram it, ram it

Ram it up yer poop chute

Wrist-watch; crisco

Ram it, ram it, ram it

Ram it up yer poop chute

Pud!

Don't fool yerself, girl

Its goin right up yer poop chute

Don't fool yerself, girl

Its goin right up yer poop chute

(etc., repeats)

Aw, I knew you'd be surprised...

Janie's Got a Gun-Aerosmith

Dum, dum, dum, honey what have you done

Dum, dum, dum, it's the sound of my gun

Dum, dum, dum, honey what have you done

Dum, dum, dum, it's the sound, it's the sound...

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah....

Janie's got a gun

Janie's got a gun

Her whole world's come undone

From looking straight at the sun

What did her daddy do?

What did he put you through?

They say when Janie was arrested

They found him underneath a train

But man, he had it comin'

Now that Janie's got a gun

She ain't never gonna be the same

Janie's got a gun

Janie's got a gun

Her dog day's just begun

Now everybody is on the run

Tell her now it's untrue

What did her daddy do?

He jacked the little bitty baby

The man has got to be insane

They say the spell that he was under

The lightnin' and the thunder

Knew that someone had to stop the pain

Run away, run away from the pain

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Run away, run away from the pain

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Run away, run away, run, run away

Janie's got a gun

Janie's got a gun

Her dog day's just begun

Now everybody is on the run

What did her daddy do

It's Janie's last I.O.U.

She had to take him down easy

And put a bullet in his brain

She said 'cause nobody believes me

The man was such a sleeze

He ain't never gonna be the same

Run away, run away from the pain

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Run away, run away from the pain

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Run away, run away, run, run away

Janie's got a gun

Janie's got a gun

Janie's got a gun

Everybody is on the run

Janie's got a gun

Her dog day's just begun

Now everybody's on the run (Honey, honey what's your problem)

'Cause Janie's got a gun (Tell me it ain't right)

Janie's got a gun (Was it daddy's cradle robbin')

Her dog day's just begun (That made you scream at night)

Now everybody's on the run

Janie's got a gun

Wow. :o So sad....:tears:

SPARKS OF THE TEMPEST-KANSAS

The sparks of the tempest rage a hundred years on

The voice of the dreamer screams the cause of the pawn

The King and the Queen are gone, each piece is the same

The difference between us is a part of the game

Darkness is spreading like a spot on the sun

The dead are the living in the age of the gun

While everyone clamors for the justice they seek

The Word is corrupted and the strong take the weak

They mold you and shape you, so watch what you do

The sparks of the tempest are burnin' you through

Spreading like wildfire, fallin' like rain

Though they may promise, they only bring pain

your future is managed, and your freedom's a joke

You don't know the difference as you put on the yoke

The less that you know the more you fall into place

A cog in the wheel, there is no soul in your face

Run for the cover, Millennium's here

Bearing the standard of confusion and fear

Spreading like wildfire, fallin' like rain

Though they may promise, they only bring pain

Blood in the sand, a cry in the street

Now the cycle is nearly complete

Ten thousand years, and nothing was learned

No turning back, now the wheel has turned

Big Brother is watching and he likes what he sees

A world for the taking, when he's ready to squeeze

The King and the Queen are gone, each piece is the same

The difference between us is a part of the game

Soothsayer saying now tell me no lies

What is this madness that is filling the skies

Spreading like wildfire, fallin' like rain

Though they may promise, they only bring pain

MIRACLES OUT OF NOWHERE-KANSAS

On a crystal morning I can see the dewdrops falling

Down from a gleaming heaven, I can hear the voices call

When you comin' home now, son, the World is not for you

Tell me what's you point of view

Hey there Mister Madman, wat'cha know that I don't know

Tell me some crazy stories, let me know who runs this show

Glassy-eyed and laughing, he turns and walks away

Tell me what made you that way

(Chorus)

Here I am just waiting for a sign

Asking questions, learning all the time

It's always here, it's always there

It's just love, and miracles out of nowhere

Tell me now dear Mother, what's it like to be so old

Children grown and leavin', seems the world is growin' cold

And though your body's ailin' you, your mind is just like new

Tell me where you're goin' to

It's so simple right before your eyes

If you'll look through this disguise

It's always here, it's always there

It's just love and miracles out of nowhere

I sang this song a hundred, maybe a thousand years ago

No one ever listens, I just play and then I go

Off into the sunset like the western heroes do

Tell me what you're gonna do

Here I am, I'm sure to see a sign

All my life I knew that it was mine

It's always here, it's always there

It's just love and miracles out of nowhere

HOPELESSLY HUMAN-Kansas

It's a strange aberration, this brainstorm of youth

Though it's lost in translation from fancy to truth

It's hopelessly human, both inside and out

A joyous occasion, there's no reason to doubt

It's easy somehow, what once was elusive

Is calling me now

I am waiting, I am patiently

Doing nothing, in a reverie

Climbing higher, seeing everything

Interacting, slowly spiralling

I am giving, while I'm watching the

Life I'm living, precious energy

Escalating, what was once just a game,

It's never the same, no one's to blame

It's a strange situation, there's no cause for alarm

All these hot licks and rhetoric, surely do you no harm

They're hopelessly human, both inside and out

A joyous occasion, there's no reason to doubt

When each word is read, would you know the difference

If nothing was said?

All is rythm, all is unity

I am laughing, as it's meant to be

Just amusing, I am using the

Word was given, making harmony

Moving slowly, dancing aimlessly

Endless circle, turning fearlessly

Resurrected, falling down again

Introspective, I'm just stating my view

Now you can choose, what do you feel,

Is it for real this time?

DUST IN THE WIND-Kansas

(you've probably heard this one many times but it always rings true)

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone

All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity

Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind

Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea

All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

Now, don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky

It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind

"Bizarre Love Triangle" (New Order; although listening to the Frente version)

Every time i think of you

I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue

It's no problem of mine but it's a problem I find

Living a life that I can't leave behind

There's no sense in telling me

The wisdom of a fool won't set you free

But that's the way that it goes

And it's what nobody knows

While every day my confusion grows

Every time I see you falling

I get down on my knees and pray

I'm waiting for that final moment

You'll say the words that I can't say

I feel fine and I feel good

I'm feeling like I never should

Whenever I get this way, I just don't know what to say

Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday

I'm not sure what this could mean

I don't think you're what you seem

I do admit to myself

That if I hurt someone else

Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be

Every time I see you falling

I get down on my knees and pray

I'm waiting for that final moment

You'll say the words that I can't say

One of my favorite country songs. :D

Kevin Fowler - "Don't Touch My Willie"

She showed up at my house at half past nine

In a low-cut dress with a bottle of wine

She said this will be a night you won't forget

She poured us some drinks to get us into the mood

I reached for the lights, she reached for my tunes

She pulled out that Red Headed Stranger, I stood up and said

Don't touch my Willie

I don't know you that well

Help yourself to some Haggard or some Jones

Hell, or anybody else

I don't know what you heard

I ain't that kind of guy

Yeah so don't touch my Willie,

We'll get a long just fine

She said she never met a man like me in her life

Who wouldn't share his Willie on the very first night

I said it's nothing personal, don't take it so hard

I don't pull out my Willie for just anyone

There's a lot of other records that you can choose from

So let me make myself clear before you go too far

Don't touch my Willie

I don't know you that well

Help yourself to some Haggard or some Jones

Hell, or anybody else

I don't know what you heard

I ain't that kind of guy

Yeah so don't touch my Willie,

We'll get a long just fine

Keep your hands off my Willie,

We'll get along just fine

Building A Mystery - Sarah McLachlan

you come out at night

that's when the energy comes

and the dark side's light

and the vampires roam

you strut your rasta wear

and your suicide poem

and a cross from a faith

that died before Jesus came

you're building a mystery

you live in a church

where you sleep with voodoo dolls

and you won't give up the search

for the ghosts in the halls

you wear sandals in the snow

and a smile that won't wash away

can you look out the window

without your shadow getting in the way

oh you're so beautiful

with an edge and a charm

but so careful

when I'm in your arms

(chorus)

'cause you're working

building a mystery

holding on and holding it in

yeah you're working

building a mystery

and choosing so carefully

you woke up screaming aloud

a prayer from your secret god

you feed off our fears

and hold back your tears

give us a tantrum

and a know it all grin

just when we need one

when the evening's thin

oh you're a beautiful

a beautiful fucked up man

you're setting up your

razor wire shrine

And I Love Her-Beatles

I give her all my love

That's all I do

And if you saw my love

You'd love her too

I love her

She gives me ev'rything

And tenderly

The kiss my lover brings

She brings to me

And I love her

A love like ours

Could never die

As long as I

Have you near me

Bright are the stars that shine

Dark is the sky

I know this love of mine

Will never die

And I love her

Bright are the stars that shine

Dark is the sky

I know this love of mine

Will never die

And I love her

Aww....:wub:

Wadin' through the waste stormy winter,

And there's not a friend to help you through.

Tryin' to stop the waves behind your eyeballs,

Drop your reds, drop your greens and blues.

Thank you for your wine, California,

Thank you for your sweet and bitter fruits.

Yes I got the desert in my toenail

And I hid the speed inside my shoe.

But come on, come on down Sweet Virginia,

Come on, honey child, I beg you.

Come on, come on down, you got it in ya.

Got to scrape the shit right off you shoes.

I want you to come on, come on down Sweet Virginia,

I want you come on, honey child, I beg you. .

I want you come on, honey child you got it in you.

Got to scrape that shit right off you shoes.

But come on, come on down Sweet Virginia,

Come on, come on down, I beg of you.

One of my favorite Beatles songs, Lovely Rita:

Lovely rita meter maid.

Lovely rita meter maid.

Lovely rita meter maid.

Nothing can come between us,

When it gets dark i tow your heart away.

Standing by a parking meter,

When i caught a glimpse of rita,

Filling in a ticket in her little white book.

In a cap she looked much older,

And the bag across her shoulder

Made her look a little like a military man.

Lovely rita meter maid,

May i inquire discreetly,

When are you free,

To take some tea with me.

Took her out and tried to win her,

Had a laugh and over dinner,

Told her i would really like to see her again,

Got the bill and rita paid it,

Took her home i nearly made it,

Sitting on the sofa with a sister or two.

Oh, lovely rita meter maid,

Where would i be without you,

Give us a wink and make me think of you.

In this life I've seen everything I can see woman,

I've seen lovers flying through the air hand in hand

I've seen babies dancing in the midnight sun,

And I've seen dreams that came from the heavenly skies above

I've seen old men crying at their own grave sides

And I've seen pigs all sitting watching, picture slides

But I never seen nothing like you.

CHORUS

Do ya do ya want my love

Do ya do ya want my face

Do ya do ya want my mind

Do ya do ya want my love

Well I, heard the crowd singin' out of tune,

As they, sat and sang Auld Lang Syne by the light of the moon

I heard the preachers bangin' on the drums,

And I heard the police playin' with their guns

But I never heard nothin' like you.

In the country where the sky touches down

On the field, she lay her down to rest

In the morning sun,

They come a'runnin' just to get a look, just to

Feel to touch her long black hair they don't give a damn

CHORUS -- repeat

Well I think you know what I'm trying to say woman,

That is I'd like to save you for a rainy day,

I've seen enough of the world to know,

That I've got to get it all to get it all to grow.

CHORUS -- repeat

Do Ya-Electric Light Orchestra

Hi ho Silver Lining- Jeff Beck

You're everywhere and nowhere baby, that's where you're at

Going down a bumpy hillside, in your hippy hat

Flying across the country, and getting fat

Saying everything is groovy, when your tires are flat

And it's high ho silver lining, anywhere you go now baby

I see your sun is shining

But I won't make a fuss, though it's obvious

Flies are in your pea soup baby, they're waving at me

Anything you want is yours now, only nothing's for free

Lies are gonna get you someday, just wait and see

So open up your beach umbrella, while you're watching TV

And it's high ho silver lining, anywhere you go now baby

I see your sun is shining

But I won't make a fuss, though it's obvious

And it's high ho silver lining, anywhere you go now baby

I see your sun is shining

But I won't make a fuss, though it's obvious

And it's high ho silver lining, anywhere you go now baby

I see your sun is shining

But I won't make a fuss, though it's obvious

And it's high ho silver lining, anywhere you go now baby

I see your sun is shining

But I won't make a fuss, though it's obvious

Here's some Prine-I haven't seen him live yet, but REALLY want to. I could come up with an entire t-shirt collection using his lyrics (Hiatt's also):

"Adam and Eve and Lucy and Ricky

Bit the big apple and got a little sticky,

Esmerelda and the hunchback of Notre Dame

They humped each other like they had no shame,

They paused as they posed for a polaroid photo,

She whispered in his ear...

Exactliodo

Quasimodo"

(from THE SINS OF MEMPHISTO)

SOME HUMANS AIN'T HUMAN:

Some humans ain't human

Some people ain't kind

You open up their hearts

And here's what you'll find

A few frozen pizzas

Some ice cubes with hair

A broken Popsicle

You don't want to go there

Some humans ain't human

Though they walk like we do

They live and they breathe

Just to turn the old screw

They screw you when you're sleeping

They try to screw you blind

Some humans ain't human

Some people ain't kind

You might go to church

And sit down in a pew

Those humans who ain't human

Could be sittin' right next to you

They talk about your family

They talk about your clothes

When they don't know their own ass

From their own elbows

Jealousy and stupidity

Don't equal harmony

Jealousy and stupidity

Don't equal harmony

Spoken:

Have you ever noticed

When you're feeling really good

There's always a pigeon

That'll come shit on your hood

Or you're feeling your freedom

And the world's off your back

Some cowboy from Texas

Starts his own war in Iraq

Some humans ain't human

Some people ain't kind

They lie through their teeth

With their head up their behind

You open up their hearts

And here's what you'll find

Some humans ain't human

Some people ain't kind

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JESUS, THE MISSING YEARS:

It was raining. It was cold

West Bethlehem was no place for a twelve year old

So he packed his bags and he headed out

To find out what the world's about

He went to France. He went to Spain

He found love. He found pain.

He found stores so he started to shop

But he had no money so he got in trouble with a cop

Kids in trouble with the cops

From Israel didn't have no home

So he cut his hair and moved to Rome

It was there he met his Irish bride

And they rented a flat on the lower east side of Rome...

Italy that is

Music publishers, book binders, Bible belters, Money Changers,

Spoon Benders and lots of pretty Italian chicks.

Chorus:

Charley bought some popcorn

Billy bought a car

Someone almost bought the farm

But they didn't go that far

Things shut down at midnight

At least around here they do

Cause we all reside down the block

Inside at ....23 Skidoo.

Wine was flowing so were beers

So Jesus found his missing years

So He went to a dance and said "This don't move me"

He hiked up his pants and he went to a movie

On his thirteenth birthday he saw "Rebel without a Cause"

He went straight on home and invented Santa Claus

Who gave him a gift and he responded in kind

He gave the gift of love and went out of his mind

You see him and the wife wasn't getting along

So he took out his guitar and he wrote a song

Called "The Dove of Love Fell Off the Perch"

But he couldn't get divorced in the Catholic Church

At least not back then anyhow

Jesus was a good guy he didn't need this shit

So he took a pill with a bag of peanuts and

A Coca-Cola and he swallowed it.

He discovered the Beatles

And he recorded with the Stones

Once He even opened up a three-way package

In Southern California for old George Jones

Repeat Chorus:

The years went by like sweet little days

With babies crying pork chops and beaujolais

When he woke up he was seventeen

The world was angry. The world was mean.

Why the man down the street and the kid on the stoop

All agreed that life stank. All the world smelled like poop

Baby poop that is ..the worst kind

So he grew his hair long and threw away his comb

And headed back to Jerusalem to find Mom, Dad and home

But when he got there the cupboard was bare

Except for an old black man with a fishing rod

He said "Whatcha gonna be when you grow up?"

Jesus said "God"

Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into?

I'm a human corkscrew and all my wine is blood

They're gonna kill me Mama. They don't like me Bud.

So Jesus went to Heaven and he went there awful quick

All them people killed him and he wasn't even sick

So come and gather around me my contemporary peers

And I'll tell you all the story of

Jesus...The Missing Years

Repeat Chorus:

We all reside down the block

Inside at ....23 Skidoo.

(I copied the lyrics from a site called the Prine Shrine, but I noticed they have a few words he didn't sing on the recording)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

and the one that may wind up engraved on my urn someday:

"send my mouth way down south and kiss my ass goodbye"

(from "PLEASE DON'T BURY ME")

This could go on forever......

Remember when we first met John McClane?

Argyle picked him up from the plane,

And took him down to Nakatomi Tower...

To meet with Holly.

He came to get her back and to be her man,

But Hans and his buddies fucked up the plan,

And that's about when everything went sour

At the Christmas party.

And the terrorists were over-zealous,

But it was sweet when they killed Ellis!

And, with a little help from Allen,

John McClane kicked ass!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

No one dies harder than John McClane,

Even when his wife's stuck on a plane

About to crash into the Potomac River...

On the eve of Christmas.

And airport security kicked him out,

But John McClane is just too damn proud,

And nothing could have made him not deliver...

'Cause that's his business!

And with a lot of fights and gunplay

He blew that plane up on the runway.

And, with a little help from Allen,

Holly's plane could land!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

No one dies harder than John McClane,

Saving all the passengers on the train.

But Simon wasn't clear with his intentions:

It was just a distraction!

And there was no way McClane could know

That Hans Gruber was Simon's bro.

And that's what made it "Die Hard: With A Vengeance"

With Samuel Jackson!

And the good cop wouldn't miss this,

Even though it wasn't Christmas.

He didn't get any help from Allen...

But only in part three!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

Finally we're back with John McClane

Now we got a choice, and the choice is plain:

We can live free or we can die hard,

As hard as we can.

From taking on a terrorist he's never met,

To taking on an F-35 jet,

With the greatest car explosions by far...

This sure looks sweet, man!

And we know what the basic gist is:

There ain't no Allen, and it's not Christmas.

We don't know but we're pretty sure that

John McClane kicks ass!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die, die hard!

We're gonna die, die, die as hard as we can!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!

This one's the theme song of my life right now, and I can belt it out with the best of them!

"You Never Give Me Your Money"

The Beatles (Found on Abbey Road)

You never give me your money

You only give me your funny paper

and in the middle of negotiations

you break down

I never give you my number

I only give you my situation

and in the middle of investigation

I break down

Out of college, money spent

See no future, pay no rent

All the money's gone, nowhere to go

Any jobber got the sack

Monday morning, turning back

Yellow lorry slow, nowhere to go

But oh, that magic feeling, nowhere to go

Oh, that magic feeling

Nowhere to go

Nowhere to go

One sweet dream

Pick up the bags and get in the limousine

Soon we'll be away from here

Step on the gas and wipe that tear away

One sweet dream came true... today

Came true... today

Came true... today...yes it did

One two three four five six seven,

All good children go to Heaven

From memory...

...and a clip from YouTube.....

It was a glorious time,and wiseguys were all over the place.

It was before Appalachian,and before Crazy Joe decided to take on a boss and start a war.

It was when I met the world

It was when I first met Jimmy Conway.....

He couldn't have been more than 28 or 29 at the time, but he was already a legend.

He'd walk in the door and everybody who worked the room just went wild.

He'd give the doorman a hundred just for opening the door.

He'd shove hundreds in the pockets of the dealers and all the guys that ran the games.

The bartender got a hundred just for keeping the ice cubes cold.

(Jimmy: The Irishman is here to take all you guinenas' money)

See,Jimmy was one of the most feared guys in the city. He was first locked up at eleven and he was doing hits for mob bosses when he was sixteen. See,hits never bothered Jimmy. It was business. But what Jimmy really loved to do,what he really loved to do was steal.I mean, he actually enjoyed it. Jimmy was the kind of guy who rooted for the bad guys in the movies.

(Jimmy: You might know who we are,but we KNOW who you are,you understand?)

He was one of the city's biggest hijackers of booze, Cigarettes.Razor blades. Shrimp and Lobsters. Shrimp and Lobsters were best. They went really fast.

And almost all of them were gimmies.I mean,they just gave it up,no problem. They called him Jimmy the Gent.

(Jimmy:Tommy,help the lady)

The drivers loved him. They used to tip him off about the really good loads.And of course, everybody got a piece......
