Food Fight!!!! B)

Don't know much about history

Don't know much biology

Don't know much about a science book

Don't know much about the french I took

But I do know that I love you

And I know that if you love me too

What a wonderful world this would be

Don't know much about geography

Don't know much trigonometry

Don't know much about algebra

Don't know what a slide rule is for

But I do know that one and one is two

And if this one could be with you

What a wonderful world this would be

Now I don't claim to be an "A" student

But I'm trying to be

So maybe by being an "A" student baby

I can win your love for me

Don't know much about history

Don't know much biology

Don't know much about a science book

Don't know much about the french I took

But I do know that I love you

And I know that if you love me too

What a wonderful world this would be

La ta ta ta ta ta ta

(History)

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

(Biology)

La ta ta ta ta ta ta

(Science book)

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

(French I took)

But I do know that I love you

And I know that if you love me too

What a wonderful world this would be

Greatest song ever......

Women think I'm tasty

But they're always tryin' to waste me

And make me burn the candle right down

But baby, baby

I don't need no jewels in my crown

Cause all you wimmen is low down gamblers

Cheatin' like I don't know how

But baby, baby

There's fever in the funk house now

This low down bitchin'

Got my poor feet a itchin'

Don't you know the deuce is still wild

Baby, I can't stay

You got to roll me

And call me the tumbling dice

Always in a hurry

I never stop to worry

Don't you see the time flashing by

Honey got no money

I'm all sixes and sevens and nines

Say now, baby

I'm the rank outsider

You can be my partner in crime

But baby, I can't stay

You got to roll me

And call me the tumbling dice

Roll me and call me the tumbling dice

Oh my, my, my

I'm the lone crap shooter

Playing the field every night

Baby, can't stay

You got to roll me

And call me the tumbling dice

Roll me and call me the tumbling dice

^ A really good song... but the Stones have even better ones :)

One of my favorite songs:

PINK-FLOYD-LYRICS.COM

Echoes (Waters, Wright, Mason, Gilmour) 23:27

Overhead the albatross

Hangs motionless upon the air

And deep beneath the rolling waves

In labyrinths of coral caves

An echo of a distant time

Comes willowing across the sand

And everything is green and submarine.

And no one called us to the land

And no one knows the where's or why's.

Something stirs and something tries

Starts to climb toward the light.

Strangers passing in the street

By chance two separate glances meet

And I am you and what I see is me.

And do I take you by the hand

And lead you through the land

And help me understand

The best I can.

And no one called us to the land

And no one crosses there alive.

No one speaks and no one tries

No one flies around the sun....

Almost everyday you fall

Upon my waking eyes,

Inviting and inciting me

To rise.

And through the window in the wall

Come streaming in on sunlight wings

A million bright ambassadors of morning.

And no one sings me lullabyes

And no one makes me close my eyes

So I throw the windows wide

And call to you across the sky....

Well, when you're sitting there

In your silk upholstered chair

Talking to some rich folks that you know

Well I hope you won't see me

In my ragged company

You know I could never be alone

Take me down little Susie, take me down

I know you think you're the Queen of the Underground

And you can send me dead flowers every morning

Send me dead flowers by the mail

Send me dead flowers to my wedding

And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Well, when you're sitting back

In your rose pink Cadillac

Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day

I'll be in my basement room

With a needle and a spoon

And another girl to take my pain away

Take me down little Susie, take me down

I know you think you're the Queen of the Underground

And you can send me dead flowers every morning

Send me dead flowers by the mail

Send me dead flowers to my wedding

And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Take me down little Susie, take me down

I know you think you're the Queen of the Underground

And you can send me dead flowers every morning

Send me dead flowers by the US mail

Say it with dead flowers at my wedding

And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

No I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Favorite Rolling Stones song:

Hannah honey was a peachy kind of girl

Her eyes were hazel

And her nose were slightly curved

We spent a lonely night at the Memory Motel

It's on the ocean, I guess you know it well

It took a starry to steal my breath away

Down on the water front

Her hair all drenched in spray

Hannah baby was a honey of a girl

Her eyes were hazel

And her teeth were slightly curved

She took my guitar and she began to play

She sang a song to me

Stuck right in my brain

You're just a memory of a love

That used to be

You're just a memory of a love

That used to mean so much to me

She got a mind of her own

And she use it well

Well she's one of a kind

She's got a mind

She got a mind of her own

And she use it mighty fine

She drove a pick-up truck

Painted green and blue

The tires were wearing thin

She turned a mile or two

When I asked her where she headed for

"Back up to Boston I'm singing in a bar"

I got to fly today on down to Baton Rouge

My nerves are shot already

The road ain't all that smooth

Across in Texas is the rose of San Antone

I keep on a feeling that's gnawing in my bones

You're just a memory of a love

That used to mean so much to me

You're just a memory girl

You're just a sweet memory

And it used to mean so much to me

Sha la la la la

She got a mind of her own

And she use it well

Mighty fine, she's one of a kind

On the seventh day my eyes were all a glaze

We've been ten thousand miles

Been in fifteen states

Every woman seemed to fade out of my mind

I hit the bottle and hit the sack and cried

What's all this laughter on the 22nd floor

It's just some friends of mine

And they're busting down the door

Been a lonely night at the Memory Motel

another favorite from the Stones:

She comes in colors ev'rywhere;

She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

She comes in colors ev'rywhere;

She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

Have you seen her dressed in blue?

See the sky in front of you

And her face is like a sail

Speck of white so fair and pale

Have you seen a lady fairer?

She comes in colors ev'rywhere;

She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

Have you seen her all in gold?

Like a queen in days of old

She shoots her colors all around

Like a sunset going down

Have you seen a lady fairer?

She comes in colors ev'rywhere;

She combs her hair

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

She's like a rainbow

Coming, colors in the air

Oh, everywhere

She comes in colors

"She's A Rainbow"

Pink Floyd-Bike

I've got a bike

You can ride it if you like

It's got a basket

A bell that rings

And things to make it look good

I'd give it to you if I could

But I borrowed it

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world

I'll give you anything

Everything if you want things

I've got a cloak

It's a bit of a joke

There's a tear up the front

It's red and black

I've had it for months

If you think it could look good

Then I guess it should

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world

I'll give you anything

Everything if you want things

I know a mouse

And he hasn't got a house

I don't know why

I call him Gerald

He's getting rather old

But he's a good mouse

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world

I'll give you anything

Everything if you want things

I've got a clan of gingerbread men

Here a man

There a man

Lots of gingerbread men

Take a couple if you wish

They're on the dish

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world

I'll give you anything

Everything if you want things

I know a room full of musical tunes

Some rhyme

Some ching

Most of them are clockwork

Let's go into the other room and make them work

Syd Barrett, when he was with Pink Floyd..:wub:

:peace:,

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 hope all is well with you. WOW, there are so many songs that I know of with great lyrics by great bands. I see many song lyrics by THE BEATLES, LED ZEPPELIN, PINK FLOYD and THE ROLLING STONES. I'll have to quote many of them at a later date. One of my favorite ROLLING STONES songs is "As Tears Go By." It goes like this:

AS TEARS GO BY

Mick Jagger/Keith Richards

It is the evening of the day

I sit and watch the children play

Smiling faces I can see, but not for me

I sit and watch as tears go by

My riches can't buy everything

I want to hear the children sing

All I ever hear is the sound of rain falling on the ground

I sit and watch as tears go by

It is the evening of the day

I sit and watch the children play

Doin' things I used to do, they think they are new

I sit and watch as tears go by

Mm mm mm...

Have a great day and ROCK ON!

⬆ Hey nice lyrics, everybody :D

This is by Bob Dylan (just an excerpt)

"Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed,

Stay lady lay, stay with your man awhile,

Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile.

His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean

And you're the best thing that he's ever seen

Stay lady stay, stay with your man awhile."

I got a '69 Chevy with a 396

Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor

She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot

Outside the 7-11 store

Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch

And he rides with me from town to town

We only run for the money, got no strings attached

We shut 'em up and than we shut 'em down

Tonight, tonight the strip's just right

I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat

Summer's here and the time is right

For racin' in the street

We take all the action we can meet

And we cover all the northeast states

When the strip shuts down we run 'em in the street

From the fire roads to the Interstate

Some guys they just give up living

And start dying little by little, piece by piece,

Some guys come home from work and wash up,

And go racin' in the street.

Tonight, tonight the strip's just right

I wanna blow 'em all out of their seats

Calling out around the world, we're going racin' in the street.

I met her on the strip three years ago

In a Camaro with this dude from L.A.

I blew that Camaro off my back,

and drove that little girl away,

But now there's wrinkles around my baby's eyes

And she cries herself to sleep at night

When I come home the house is dark

She sighs, "Baby did you make it all right,"

She sits on the porch of her Daddy's house

But all her pretty dreams are torn,

She stares off alone into the night

With the eyes of one who hates for just being born

For all the shut down strangers and hot rod angels,

Rumbling through this promised land

Tonight my baby and me, we're gonna ride to the sea

And wash these sins off our hands.

Tonight, tonight the highway's bright

Out of our way, mister you best keep

'Cause summer's here and the time is right

For racin' in the street.

BEFORE I GO-John Hiatt

I've been sleeping for some hours

Just woke up and you were there

Like the morning, like the flowers

Sunlight whispering in my ears

Red tail hawk shooting down the canyon

Put me on that wind he rides

I will be your true companion

When we reach the other side

I will try, I will stumble

But I will fly, he told me so

Proud and high or low and humble

Many miles before I go

Many miles before I go

Can't decide which way to travel

On the ground or in the sky

All my schemes have come unraveled

All that's left is you and I

And I will try, but I will stumble

And I will fly, he told me so

Proud and high or low and humble

Many miles before I go

Many miles before I go

Here I go

Ghosts on the trees, there's

Ghosts on the wires

Asking questions and showing signs

Shivering with truth, they're lighting fires

Lighting fires all down the line

And I will try, and I will stumble

But I will fly, he told me so

Proud and high or low and humble

Many miles before I go

Many miles before I go

Proud and high or low and humble

Many miles before I go

Many miles before I go

THE RIVER KNOWS YOUR NAME-John Hiatt

Oh the river knows your name

And your tears falling like the rain

All around you suffering and pain

Oh the river knows your name

And the river hears you cry

As the lightning cracks the open sky

As your momma sings a lullaby

Oh the river she knows why

Let the river wash you down

Beneath the surface with a rushing sound

Like a freight train passing through a town

Let the river wash you down

Let the river take away

All the words you and I could never say

In the silence darling let us pray

Let the river take it all away

Oh the river she knows your name

From the brazos to the wabash to the seine

No two journeys are ever quite the same

But the river knows your name

Oh the river knows your name

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

DON'T FADE AWAY-Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance)

Don't fade away, my brown-eyed girl

Come walk with me, i'll fill your heart with joy

And we'll dance through our isolation.

Seeking solace in the wisdom we bestow

Turning thoughts to the here and ever after

Consuming fears in our fiery halos

Say what you mean, mean what you say

I've heard that innocence has led us all astray

But don't let them make you and break you

The world is filled with their broken empty dreams

Silence is their only virtue

Locked away inside their silent screams

But for now, let us dance away this starry night

Filled with the glow of fiery stars

And with the dawn our sun will rise

Bringing a symphony of bird cries

Don't bring me down now, let me stay here for awhile

You know life's too short, let me bathe here in your smile

I'm transcending the fall from the garden

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

I SLEPT ALL NIGHT BY MY LOVER-Greg Brown

Lookin out my window, glad to see another dawn

A few cars strugglin through the snow

It's so hard to believe it could all be here and gone

So quickly that we wouldn't even know

And I slept all night by my lover

She trembles in her sleep, deep in a bad dream

I touch her brow and she ceases shaking

Why should I sleep with such a lovely watch to keep

In an hour or so the children will be waking

And I slept all night by my lover

Madmen with guns stalk the deer at night

And bring down the dark the whole world over

Even in my dreams I see their shining eyes

And they pierce me and leave me with no cover

And I slept all night by my lover

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

HEAVEN THAT I'M MAKING-Neil Finn (Crowded House)

Plead with my saint

Wash his hands and feet

Find his complaint

Make his world complete

And this heaven that I'm making

It can't come quickly enough

And the big wave that I'm taking

It feels like I'm just waking up

Mind out don't think

I can't get used to it

Right on the brink

I end up losing it

And this heaven that I'm makin

It can't come quickly enough

And the big wave that I'm taking

It feels like I'm just waking up

And I'll be there

If all of creation is kind

Each conversation I hear

As I'm walking in though the crowd

As if I could float though the air

This heaven

This is heaven that I'm makin

This is heaven

It can't come quickly enough

And this big boat that I'm taking

Can't come by quickly enough

If there is hell on earth

There must be heaven too

Both in one place

And not a second to lose

"One More Kiss and Good-Night" done by Jessie Matthews. This is my favorite part that goes to the end.

One more kiss and good night, dear.

One more thrill of delight

And as long as we live

We'll take and we'll give

One more kiss and then

good-night, sweetheart...

just give me one more kiss..

I just watched Made in U.S.A. where she sings that in her cameo in the movie. I love that song too. I think that song is one of the many sessions Jimmy played on too.

I Think It's Going To Rain Today (excerpt)

by Randy Newman

Broken windows and empty hallways

A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray

Human kindness is overflowing

And I think it's going to rain today

Lonely, lonely

Tin can at my feet

Think I'll kick it down the street

That's the way to treat a friend . . .

Bright before me the signs implore me

To help the needy and show them the way

Human kindness is overflowing

And I think it's going to rain today.

Every country singer wishes the'd written this.....

3:03 of pure genius....

I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis,

She tried to take me upstairs for a ride.

She had to heave me right across her shoulder

'Cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind.

It's the honky tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.

I laid a divorcee in New York City,

I had to put up some kind of a fight.

The lady then she covered me with roses,

She blew my nose and then she blew my mind.

It's the honky tonk women

Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.

(Yeah!) It's the honky tonk women.

Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.

(Yeah!) It's the honky tonk women.

Harvest Moon by Neil Young

(excerpt)

When we were strangers I watched you from afar.

When we were lovers I loved you with all my heart.

But now it's getting late and the moon is climbing high.

I want to celebrate, see the shining in your eyes.

Because I'm still in love with you, I want to see you dance again.

Because I'm still in love with you on this harvest moon.

The Beatles - Across the Universe. Some of the most powerful and mysterious lyrics! (along with Lucy in the Sky w/ Diamonds) smile.gif

Words are flying out like

endless rain into a paper cup

They slither while they pass

They slip away across the universe

Pools of sorrow waves of joy

are drifting thorough my open mind

Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which

dance before me like a million eyes

That call me on and on across the universe

Thoughts meander like a

restless wind inside a letter box

they tumble blindly as

they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life

are ringing through my open ears

exciting and inviting me

Limitless undying love which

shines around me like a million suns

It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Stairway to Heaven

Theres a lady who's sure

All that glitters is gold

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

When she gets there she knows

If the stores are all closed

With a word she can get what she came for.

Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Theres a sign on the wall

But she wants to be sure

'cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.

In a tree by the brook

There's a songbird who sings,

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,

Ooh, it makes me wonder.

Theres a feeling I get

When I look to the west,

And my spirit is crying for leaving.

In my thoughts I have seen

Rings of smoke through the trees,

And the voices of those who standing looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,

Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon

If we all call the tune

Then the piper will lead us to reason.

And a new day will dawn

For those who stand long

And the forests will echo with laughter.

If theres' a bustle in your hedgerow

Don't be alarmed now,

Its just a spring clean for the may queen.

Yes, there are two paths you can go by

But in the long run

There's still time to change the road you'e on.

And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go

In case you don't know,

The piper' calling you to join him,

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow,

And did you know

Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road

Our shadows taller than our soul.

There walks a lady we all know

Who shines white light and wants to show

How evrything still turns to gold.

And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last.

When all are one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

:peace:,

Jo

What's Happening Brother

by Marvin Gaye

Hey baby, what' cha know good

I'm just getting' back but you knew I would

War is hell, when will it end,

When will the people start gettin' together again

Are things really gettin' better, like the newspaper said

What else is new my friend, besides what I read

Can't find no work, can't find no job my friend

Money is tighter than it's ever been

Say man, I just don't understand

What's going on across this land

Ah, what's happening brother,

Oh ya, what's happening my man

Are they still gettin' down where we used to go and dance

Will our ball club win the pennant,

Do you think they have a chance

And tell me friend, how in the world have you been

Tell me what's out and I want to know what's in

What's the deal man, what's happening

What's happening brother

Ah what's happening brother

What's happening my man

Ah what's happening brother

What's been shaking up and down the line

I want to know 'cause I'm slightly behind the time.
