    Give it a try

    Post some of your favourite song lyrics, from just a one liner to the whole verse:

    My starter for ten:



    There's something solid forming in the air
    And the wall of death is lowered in Times Square
    No one seems to care
    They carry on as if nothing was there

    The wind is blowing harder now
    Blowing dust into my eyes
    The dust settles on my skin
    Making a crust I cannot move in
    And I'm hovering like a fly, waiting for the windshield on the freeway

    Echoes of The Broadway Everglades
    With their mythical madonnas still walking in their shades:
    Lenny Bruce declares a truce and plays his other hand
    Marshall McLuhan, casual viewing, head buried in the sand
    Sirens on the rooftops wailing, but there's no ships sailing
    Groucho, with his movies trailing, stands alone with his punchline failing

    Ku Klux Klan serve hot soul food and the band plays In the Mood
    The cheerleader waves her cyanide wand
    There's a smell of peach blossom and bitter almond
    Caryl Chessman sniffs the air, and leads the parade
    He knows, in a scent, you can bottle what you made

    There's Howard Hughes in blue suede shoes
    Smiling at the Majorette, smoking Winston cigarettes


    Sung with skill by Peter Gabriel - 1974 - Fly on a windshield (From 'The lamb lies down on Broadway'), with an awesome guitar alongside.

    From 2:45 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9X2QtzCvBQ

    Lascia ch'io pianga : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peJxkzPSQFg

    Lascia ch'io pianga
    Mia cruda sorte,
    E che sospiri
    La libertà.

    Il duolo infranga
    Queste ritorte,
    De' miei martiri
    Sol per pietà.


    Ombra Mai Fu :
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8Bgcuhu_9c

    Frondi tenere e belle
    Del mio platano amato,
    Per voi risplenda il fato.
    Tuoni, lampi, e procelle
    Non v'oltraggino mai la cara pace,
    Né giunga a profanarvi
    Austro rapace.

    Ombra mai fu
    Di vegetabile
    Cara ed amabile,
    Soave più.

    Ombra mai fu
    Di vegetabile
    Cara ed amabile,
    Soave più.

    Cara ed amabile,
    Ombra mai fu
    Di vegetabile
    Cara ed amabile,
    Soave più.


    "The Lemon Song"

    I should have quit you, long time ago. [X2]
    I wouldn't be here, my children, down on this killin' floor.

    I should have listened, baby, to my second mind [X2]
    Everytime I go away and leave you, darling, you send me the blues way down the line.

    Said, people worry I can't keep you satisfied.
    Let me tell you baby, you ain't nothin but a two-bit, no-good jive.

    Went to sleep last night, worked as hard as I can,
    Bring home my money, you take my money, give it to another man.
    I should have quit you, baby, such a long time ago.
    I wouldn't be here with all my troubles, down on this killing floor.

    Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg. [X2]
    The way you squeeze my lemon, I'm gonna fall right out of bed.

    I'm gonna leave my children down on this killing floor.

    Pink floyd - Mother

    Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?
    Mother, do you think they'll like this song?
    Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?
    Ooooh aah, mother, should I build a wall?

    Mother, should I run for president?
    Mother, should I trust the government?
    Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
    Ooooh aah, is it just a waste of time?

    Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
    Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true
    Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you
    Mama's gonna keep you right here under her wing
    She won't let you fly but she might let you sing
    Mama's gonna keep baby cosy and warm

    Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe
    Of course Mama's gonna help build the wall

    Mother, do you think she's good enough for me?
    Mother, do you think she's dangerous to me?
    Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?
    Oooh aah, mother, will she break my heart?

    Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
    Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you
    Mama won't let anyone dirty get through
    Mama's gonna wait up till you get in
    Mama will always find out where you've been
    Mamma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean

    Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe
    You'll always be a baby to me

    Mother, did it need to be so high?

    The Tubes / Don't Touch Me There:

    Oooo baby,
    Move closer to me
    I've had all that I can stand
    Take hold of me with your hands

    Oh baby,
    You give me the chills
    Whisper low in my ear
    Let knows how it feels
    just to know you are near
    Your body gives me a thrill
    as it leans against mine
    I love how it feels
    with your jeans against mine

    The smell of burning leather
    as we hold each other tight
    As our rivets rub together
    flashing sparks into the night
    At this moment of surrender darling
    if you really care

    Don't touch me there


    Unzip that jacket
    That leather smells so sweet
    Put your chest against mine
    Feel my heart beat


    I love the way your belt fits
    The way it hangs so low
    So low on your hips my darling
    I want you so

    I love your sweet, sweet lips
    I love your salty taste
    I love your finger tips
    When I reach for your waist?! Uh-huh...


    The smell of burning leather
    as we hold each other tight
    As our rivets rub together
    flashing sparks into the night
    At this moment of surrender darling
    if you really care

    Don't touch me there


    I will give my love forever
    if you promise me you'll
    never never never touch me there

    Don't touch me there

    Don't touch me there
    Please don't
    Don't touch me there
    Oh no not there
    Don't touch me there
    Anywhere but there
    Don't touch me there
    Never--don't ever
    Don't touch me there
    Do you care?
    Don't touch me there
    Then don't touch me there

    Don't touch me there

    "Death Is Not The End"

    When you're sad and when you're lonely
    And you haven't got a friend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    And all that you held sacred
    Falls down and dows not bend
    Just remember that death is not the end.

    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end.

    When you're standing on the cross-roads
    That you cannot comprehend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    And all your dreams have vanished
    And you don't know what's up the bend
    Just remember that death is not the end.

    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end.

    When the storm clouds gather round you
    And heavy rains descend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    And there's nowhere there to comfort you
    With helping hand to lend
    Just remember that death is not the end.

    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end.

    Oh the tree of life is growing
    Where the spirit never dies
    And the bright light of salvation
    Shines in dark and empty skies
    When the cities are on fire
    When the burning flesh of men
    Just remember that death is not the end
    And you search in vain to find
    Just one law abiding citizen
    Just remember that death is not the end.

    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end.

    Many moons ago, I bought Jilted John by Jilted John..... flipped it over to the B side (remember those ?!) and it cracked me up.
    The lyrics to this are so bad, it's brilliant:


    In case you'd like to sing along:
    I've never been very lucky with girls
    But then I'd never met Sharon
    Now I have, I'm in love
    'Cause we've been going out for two months
    I see her on Wednesday and Saturday
    And on Sunday afternoon
    On Wednesday Sharon goes babysitting
    For her mum's friend Mrs Higgins
    I go with her to watch telly
    The kids are horrible and the house is dead smelly
    But it's all worth it 'cause when they've gone to bed
    We start snogging on the sofa
    (chorus)
    Yeah, yeah, I love Sharon
    Yeah, yeah, she loves me
    Yeah, yeah, we love each other
    And we're so happy
    Then on Saturday night we go
    To the bus shelter at the end of the road
    We sit in it and mess about
    And then we go and buy some chips
    I love Sharon and she loves me
    And we are going steady
    And one day when we save up
    We are going to get married
    (repeat chorus)
    Then on Sunday afternoon
    We usually go to the museum
    I don't look at what's in there
    'Cause when I'm with Sharon I couldn't care
    Less
    I used to think that girls didn't like me
    But Sharon's a girl, and she loves me
    She says I'm dead sexy and butch
    And much better looking than Starsky and Hutch
    And when we go out for a walk
    Sometimes other girls look at me
    I used to think that I was dead ugly
    But now I know I'm not bad looking really
    (repeat chorus)
    Oh, I love you Sharon
    And you love me, don't you?
    And when we've saved up, we're going to get married
    And your mum and dad like me, I think
    And my gran says you're dead nice
    Yeah, oh right, yeah
    Oh, I love Sharon
    And Sharon loves me
