Eaten By The Monster Of Love - SparksPage 8 of 61    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41)
Well, it's Saturday night and I'm still free
And I ain't never gonna be
Eaten by the monster of love

It's hard to fight it off much more
I hear it drooling by the door
Eaten by the monster of love

It ain't a pretty sight to see the way it leaves 'em
It chews them up and spits out creatures with those
Goo-gooy-ey eyes
Sick sickly smiles
It just isn't right

And my father said "don't worry, son"
But look at him, he should have run
Eaten by the monster of love

Well, it's worse than war, it's worse than death
There ain't too many left who ain't been
Eaten by the monster of love

Buy a dog and that might help
Sometimes, though, a dog gets grabbed and
Eaten by the monster of love

Eaten by the monster of love
Let it huff, let it puff
Eaten by the monster of love
I hate to gripe, but I just ain't the type

(Don't let it get me, don't let it get me, etc.)

I know some really good, good people
Overcome, and piece by piece they were
Eaten by the monster of love

Sometimes it takes a nip at me
But I'm too quick to ever be
Eaten by the monster of love

We Don't See God - Law And Order
Posted: 6/15/2011 6:06:06 PM
Can we reach what does not die?

People homeless
Children starving
Cries of hunger
Rip through the sky
It's the last time that I close my eyes

Killers walking
Lawyers bribing
Is there no justice
This system lies
It's the last time that I close my eyes
I don't care how things used to be
Where is God when our leaders die
Does he hear us at all?

Her chair is empty
But the scars sit with me
The burning echo
I can't forget
The last time that she closed her eyes
I don't need your sympathy
I can't believe God can close his eyes
Or does he see us at all?

Can we reach what does not die?
Does he hear us at all?

We don't see God

I Think It's Gonna Rain Today - Law And Order
Posted: 6/15/2011 6:08:28 PM
What she needs is hard to give so honestly
Love was the drug I injected so carelessly
She lives and dreams where she finds reality

And I think it's gonna rain today
I see the pain in her eyes
I think it's gonna rain today
It's raining harder every time

She was a rose in the countryside
But our love was the thorn that saw no light
Her heart denies that this love is meant to die

And I think it's gonna rain today
I feel the pain in her heart
I think it's gonna rain today
It's raining harder every time

Leonard Cohen "Closing Time"
Posted: 6/15/2011 9:24:38 PM
"Closing Time"

Ah we're drinking and we're dancing
and the band is really happening
and the Johnny Walker wisdom running high
And my very sweet companion
she's the Angel of Compassion
she's rubbing half the world against her thigh
And every drinker every dancer
lifts a happy face to thank her
the fiddler fiddles something so sublime
all the women tear their blouses off
and the men they dance on the polka-dots
and it's partner found, it's partner lost
and it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops:
it's CLOSING TIME
Yeah the women tear their blouses off
and the men they dance on the polka-dots
and it's partner found, it's partner lost
and it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops:
it's CLOSING TIME

Ah we're lonely, we're romantic
and the cider's laced with acid
and the Holy Spirit's crying, "Where's the beef?"
And the moon is swimming naked
and the summer night is fragrant
with a mighty expectation of relief
So we struggle and we stagger
down the snakes and up the ladder
to the tower where the blessed hours chime
and I swear it happened just like this:
a sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss
the Gates of Love they budged an inch
I can't say much has happened since
but CLOSING TIME

I swear it happened just like this:
a sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss
the Gates of Love they budged an inch
I can't say much has happened since
CLOSING TIME

I loved you for your beauty
but that doesn't make a fool of me:
you were in it for your beauty too
and I loved you for your body
there's a voice that sounds like God to me
declaring, declaring, declaring that your body's really you
And I loved you when our love was blessed
and I love you now there's nothing left
but sorrow and a sense of overtime
and I missed you since the place got wrecked
And I just don't care what happens next
looks like freedom but it feels like death
it's something in between, I guess
it's CLOSING TIME

Yeah I missed you since the place got wrecked
By the winds of change and the weeds of sex
looks like freedom but it feels like death
it's something in between, I guess
it's CLOSING TIME

Yeah we're drinking and we're dancing
but there's nothing really happening
and the place is dead as Heaven on a Saturday night
And my very close companion
gets me fumbling gets me laughing
she's a hundred but she's wearing
something tight
and I lift my glass to the Awful Truth
which you can't reveal to the Ears of Youth
except to say it isn't worth a dime
And the whole damn place goes crazy twice
and it's once for the devil and once for Christ
but the Boss don't like these dizzy heights
we're busted in the blinding lights,
busted in the blinding lights
of CLOSING TIME

The whole damn place goes crazy twice
and it's once for the devil and once for Christ
but the Boss don't like these dizzy heights
we're busted in the blinding lights,
busted in the blinding lights
of CLOSING TIME

Oh the women tear their blouses off
and the men they dance on the polka-dots
It's CLOSING TIME
And it's partner found, it's partner lost
and it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops
It's CLOSING TIME
I swear it happened just like this:
a sigh, a cry, a hungry kiss
It's CLOSING TIME
The Gates of Love they budged an inch
I can't say much has happened since
But CLOSING TIME
I loved you when our love was blessed
I love you now there's nothing left
But CLOSING TIME
I miss you since the place got wrecked
By the winds of change and the weeds of sex.

Stuck In A Moment - U2
Posted: 6/15/2011 10:04:23 PM
I'm not afraid
Of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me
That I haven't already heard
I'm just trying to find
A decent melody
A song that I can sing
In my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you. Ooh.
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
'Cause tears are going nowhere baby

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it


I will not forsake
The colors that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing
I am still enchanted
By the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears
Through your eyes I can see

You are such a fool
To worry like you do.. Oh
I know it's tough
And you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now
My, oh my

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
You've got yourself stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it
Oh lord look at you now
You've got yourself stuck in a moment
And you cant get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm 'til you discover how deep
I wasn't jumping, for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along this stony pass

It's just a moment
This time will pass

Dedicated to all those present, and those who perished on 9/11

ONE - U2
Posted: 6/16/2011 8:06:59 PM
Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
You say
One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's

Too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
carry each other
carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much?
More than a lot.
You gave me nothing,
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
See we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love is a higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't keep holding on
To what you got
When all you've got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters, brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

One...
One...

extended version

Can You hear us coming Lord
Can You hear us call
Feel us knocking
We're knocking at Your door

Im here Without You- Three Doors Down
Posted: 6/17/2011 7:00:57 AM
A hundred days have made me older
since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
and I dont think I can look at this the same
but all the miles that separate
they disappear now when Im dreaming of your face

Im here without you baby
but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
and I dream about you all the time
Im here without you baby
but your still with me in my dreams
and tonight girl its only you and me


(there is more but now I just want to cry)

This Is My World - Darius Rucker
Posted: 6/17/2011 7:25:33 PM
The look on your face
It could never explain your heart
And the touch of my lips
It could never tell u my thoughts

And U want me to change
I can't get used to
All U want me to be
I just can't pretend
To be anyone else
Cuz it's not really me

This is my world
This is who I am
And I'm not gonna give up myself
To make your life better

She said
This is how it is
I got my own life to live
And U can either accept me
Or baby

And if it's love
That we share
Then we can withstand all
The obstacles that life brings forth
And I will receive you
For who U are who u were
And baby who U will be

But U want me to change
Girl I can't get used to
All U want me to be
And I just can't pretend
To be anyone else, oh
Cuz it's not really me

This is my world
This is who I am
And I'm not trying to give up myself
To make your life better, now

This is how it is
I got my own life to live
And U can either accept me
Or baby

This is my world
This is who i am
And I'm not trying to give up myself
To make your life better

She said
This is how
I got my own life to live
And U can either accept me
Or baby let me go

U said I promise you the stars
And I'm
Giving you all I can now
U said love is not enough
And I know
U will see
If your life turns around
In my heart there is room for u

It's me and my world
This is who i am
And I'm not trying to give up myself
To make your life better

She said
This is how
I got my life
And U can either accept me
Or baby

This is my world
Who I am
And I'm not trying to give up myself
To make your life better, now

Oh, this is how
And I got my life
And U can either accept me
Or baby let me go

This is my world
My world
Baby let me go

Oh, this is who I am
Where I live
Got my own life to give

Oh, oh oh
My world
I'm not trying to change u
This is who I am
Please let me be me, yeah

Peace On Earth - U2
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:21:45 AM
Heaven on Earth, we need it now
I'm sick of all of this hanging around
Sick of sorrow, sick of the pain
I'm sick of hearing again and again
That there's gonna be peace on Earth

Where I grew up there weren't many trees
Where there was we'd tear them down
And use them on our enemies
They say that what you mock
Will surely overtake you
And you become a monster
So the monster will not break you

And it's already gone too far
Who said that if you go in hard
You won't get hurt?

Jesus can you take the time
To throw a drowning man a line
Peace on Earth
Tell the ones who hear no sound
Whose sons are living in the ground
Peace on Earth
No whos or whys
No one cries like a mother cries
For peace on Earth
She never got to say goodbye
To see the color in his eyes
Now he's in the dirt
Peace on Earth

They're reading names out over the radio
All the folks the rest of us won't get to know
Sean and Julia, Gareth and Ann and Breda
Their lives are bigger than any big idea

Jesus can you take the time
To throw a drowning man a line
Peace on Earth
To tell the ones who hear no sound
Whose sons are living in the ground
Peace on Earth
Jesus sing a song you wrote
The words are sticking in my throat
Peace on Earth
Hear it every Christmas time
But hope and history won't rhyme
So what's it worth
This peace on Earth

Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth

What I like About You - The Romantics
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:23:36 AM
What I like about you
You hold me tight
Tell me I'm the only one
Wanna come over tonight?
Keep on whispering in my ear
Tell me all the things that I want to hear
'Cause it's true
That's what I like about you
What I like about you
You really know how to dance
When you go up down, jump around
Talk about about true romance
Keep on whispering in my ear
Tell me all the things that I want to hear
'Cause it's true
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you
What I like about you
You keep me warm at night
Never wanna let you go
You know you make me feel alright
Keep on whispering in my ear
Tell me all the things that I want to hear
'Cause it's true
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you
That's what I like about you

Better Things - The Kinks
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:25:18 AM
Here's wishing you the bluest sky
And hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on the way

Here's hoping all the days ahead
Won't be as bitter as the ones behind you
Be an optimist instead
And somehow happiness will find you
Forget what happened yesterday
I know that better things are on the way

It's really good to see you rocking out and having fun
Living like you just begun
Accept your life and what it brings
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

Here's wishing you the bluest sky
And hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on the way

I know you've got a lot of good things happening up ahead
The past is gone, it's all been said
So here's to what the future brings
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things

I've Done Everything For You - Rick Springfield
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:28:09 AM
This one way love affair ain't fair
it ain't no fair to me
It's all give and take and you just take
I can't take it you see
Well I'm givin' up on love this time
Me and my friends we'll do just fine

(chorus)
I've done everything for you
You've done nothin' for me
I've done everything for you
You've done nothin' for me

You said someday I'd
have a whole lotta money
I'd be a millionaire
But when that didn't happen over night
I found out how much you really cared
Well all you want is a whole lotta money
all the rest is just jivin' honey

(chorus)

When I first met you
you didn't know how to love a man
All those things about making love
you didn't understand
Now you know about everything
I'm turning you in for memories

(chorus)

Well I'm going out on the town tonight
and get as wild as I can be
I'm gonna find out what it's really like
to be loose, high and free
Well I don't care what the people say
I'm takin' my mind, I'm changin' to stay

I've done everything for you
You've done nothin' for me
I've done everything for you
You've done nothin' for me
You've done nothin' for me
You've done nothin'
You've done nothin'
You've done nothin' for me

You Better Love Somebody - Rick Springfield
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:29:22 AM
I can see the path you're cuttin,
it cost me a little piece of my heart.
I can see the doors you're shuttin,
cause they were open at the start.

Baby loving you has been hard on me.
You're such a tough little sister,
just looking for Mr. Right,
on the wrong side of town.

You better love somebody,
it's late.
You better love somebody,
don't wait.
You better love somebody,
don't tempt fate.
You're gonna push it just a little too far one night.

Your eyes are wild, your skins so white.
You're under-nourished and overfed.
She's got the teeth, she knows how to bite,
cause when you bit, I bled.

You got the perfect image of the perfect man.
You're a tough little sister,
but you'll settle for a mister tonight,
but you're running out of time.

You better love somebody,
it's late.
You better love somebody,
don't wait.
You better love somebody,
don't tempt fate.
You're gonna push it just a little too far one night.

I'm only saying what I feel,
you think I'm wrong, I know.
You thought I was sleeping at the wheel,
I thought that you were driving.

You better love somebody...
You better love somebody...

You better love somebody,
it's late.
You better love somebody,
don't wait.
You better love somebody,
don't tempt fate.
You're gonna push it just a little too far one night.

One night - oh oh oh oh, one night - oh oh oh oh
One night - oh oh oh oh, one night - oh oh oh oh

Human Touch - Rick Springfield
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:30:31 AM
Everybody's talking to computers,
They're all dancing to a drum machine
I know I'm living on the outside
Scared of getting caught between
I'm so cool and calculated alone in the modern world

But Sally has a hard time holding back
The alley to her heart is a beaten track
She's got the love monkey riding on her back

We all need the Human Touch
We all need the Human Touch
I need it the Human Touch
We all need the Human Touch
We all need it, and I need it too

You know, I got my walls, Sally calls them prison cells
Sometimes I need protection, I've got the chains
I got the warning bells
I sit so snug and isolated alone in the modern world

But Sally has a hard time holding back
The alley to her heart is a beaten track
She's never out of love, yeah she's got the knack
You've got love I want it, come on girl

We all need the Human Touch
We all need the Human Touch
I need it the Human Touch
We all need the Human Touch
We all need it, and I need it too

Human Touch
Human Touch
Human Touch
Human Touch

I'm so scared and isolated in the modern world

We all need
We all need the Human Touch
We all need the Human Touch
We all need the Human Touch
I need it the Human Touch
We all need Human Touch
I need it the Human Touch
We all need it, and I need it too

Eyes Without A Face - Billy Idol
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:31:37 AM
I'm all out of hope
One more bad dream could bring a fall
When I'm far from home
Don't call me on the phone
To tell me you're alone
It's easy to deceive
It's easy to tease
But hard to get release

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

When you hear the music you make a dip
Into someone else's pocket then make a slip.
Steal a car and go to Las Vegas oh, the gigolo pool.

Hanging out by the state line,
Turning holy water into wine
Drinkin' it down, oh
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books tryin' to stay hip.
I'm thinkin' of you you're out there so
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.
Say your prayers.

Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don't despise
Now all I can do
Is love what was once
So alive and new
But it's gone from your eyes
I'd better realise

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face
Got no human grace your eyes without a face.
Such a human waste your eyes without a face
And now it's getting worse.

The Breaks - Kurtis Blow
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:33:11 AM
Clap your hands everybody

If you got what it takes

'Cause I'm Kurtis Blow and I want you to know

That these are the breaks



Breakes on a bus brakes on a car

Breaks to make you a superstar

Breaks to win and breaks to lose

But these here breaks will rock your shoes

And these are the breaks

Break it up break it up break it up!



If your woman steps out with another man

(That's the breaks that's the breaks)

And she runs off with him to Japan

And the IRS says they want to chat

And you can't explain why you claimed your cat

And Ma Bell sends you a whopping bill

With eighteen phone calls to Brzil

And you borrowed money from the mob

And yesterday you lost your job

Well, these are the breaks

Break it up, break it up, break it up



Throw your hands up in the sky

And wave 'em 'round from side to side

And if youdeserve a break tonight

Somebody say alright!

(All right) Say ho-oo!

(Ho-oo!) And you don't stop

Keep on, somebody scream!

(Owwwww!) Break down!



Breaks on a stage, breaks on a screen

Breaks to make your wallet lean

Breaks run cold and breaks run hot

Some folks got 'em and some have not

But these are the breaks

Break it up, break it up, break it up!

Break down!



To the girl in brown, stop messing around

(Break it up, break it up)

To the guy in blue, whatcha gonna do?

To the girl in green, don't be so mean

And the guy in red, say what I said

Break down!



Brakes on a plane, brakes on a train

Breaks to make you go insane

Breaks in love, breaks in war

But we got the breaks to get you on the floor

And these are the breaks

Break it up, break it up, break it up!

Break down! Yo!



Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!

Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!

Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!

Just do it, just do it, just do it, do it, do it!



You say last week you met the perfect guy

(That's the breaks, that's the breaks)

And he promised you the stars in the sky

He said his Cadilac was gold

But he didn't say it was ten years old

He tok you out to the Red Coach grill

But he forgot the cash and you paid the bill

And he told you the story of his life

But he forgot the part about...his wife! Huh! Huh!

Well, these are the breaks!

Break it up, break it up, break it up!

Break down

Whiskey - Law And Order
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:36:18 AM
Got on the open road west of the city
Leavin' behind a long trail of gasoline
Far from the New York way
Came along this girl named Whiskey
Long blond hair, ripped up dirty jeans
Listen to what I say

Kind of girl I can't get enough,
She left me wantin' more
What she gave me that night
Nearly knocked me to the floor

And all night, I'm drinkin' whiskey

Lo and behold, she was 14 by day, 40 by night
Oh my soul
Her mean old daddy's got his fingers on the trigger
Gonna hang me on his wall, so I've been told

Hangin' on Friday night
Dancin' on dynamite
Said see you 'round, walkin' on Whiskey
Sweet Whiskey, doused out on Whiskey
Haul me out the door

I was dancin' and a singin' at a county fair,
She was lookin' so fine gonna meet me out back door
I was on my way
She was lookin' so fine gonna blow my mind
Better throw away the key and lock me up for sure
Or I'll be bailin' straw

Hangin' on Friday night
Dancin' on dynamite
Said see you 'round, walkin' on Whiskey
Sweet Whiskey, doused out on Whiskey
Hold me out for more

I said, "Give me another shot?"

One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer - George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:40:41 AM
Wanna tell you a story,
about the house-rent blues
I come home one Friday,
had to tell the landlady I'd done lost my job
She said that don't comfort me,
long as I get my money next Friday
Now next Friday come I didn't get the rent,
and out the door I went

So I goes to the landlady,
I said, "You let me slide?"
I'll have the rent for you tomorrow.
the next day I don't know
So said let me slide it on you know people,
I notice when I come home in the evening
She ain't got nothing nice to say to me,
but for five year she was so nice
Loh' she was lovy-dovy,
I come home one particular evening
The landlady said, "You got the rent money yet?",
I said, "No, can't find no job"
Therefore I ain't got no money to pay the rent
She said "I don't believe you're tryin' to find no job"
Said "I seen you today you was standin' on a corner,
leaning up against a post"
I said "But I'm tired, I've been walkin' all day"
She said "That don't confront me,
long as I get my money next Friday"
Now next Friday come I didn't have the rent,
and out the door I went

So I go down the streets,
down to my good friend's house
I said "Look man I'm outdoors you know,
can I stay with you maybe a couple days?"
He said "Uh, Let me go and ask my wife"
He come out of the house,
I could see in his face
I know that was no
He said "I don't know man, ah she kinda funny, you know"
I said "I know, everybody funny, now you funny too"
So I go back home
I tell the landlady I got a job, I'm gonna pay the rent
She said "Yeah?" I said "Oh yeah"
And then she was so nice,
loh' she was lovy-dovy
So I go in my room, pack up my things and I go,
I slip on out the back door and down the streets I go
She a-hollerin' about the front rent, she'll be lucky to get any back rent,
she ain't gonna get none of it
So I stop in the local bar you know people,
I go to the bar, I ring my coat, I call the bartender
Said "Look man, come down here", he got down there
So what you want?

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
Well I ain't seen my baby since I don't know when,
I've been drinking bourbon, whiskey, scotch and gin
Gonna get high man I'm gonna get loose,
need me a triple shot of that juice
Gonna get drunk don't you have no fear
I want one bourbon, one scotch and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

But I'm sitting now at the bar,
I'm getting drunk, I'm feelin' mellow
I'm drinkin' bourbon, I'm drinkin' scotch, I'm drinkin' beer
Looked down the bar, here come the bartender
I said "Look man, come down here"
So what you want?

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
No I ain't seen my baby since the night before last,
gotta get a drink man I'm gonna get gassed
Gonna get high man I ain't had enough,
need me a triple shot of that stuff
Gonna get drunk won't you listen right here,
I want one bourbon, one shot and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

Now by this time I'm plenty high,
you know when your mouth a-getting dry you're plenty high
Looked down the bar I say to my bartender
I said "Look man, come down here", he got down there
So what you want this time?
I said "Look man, a-what time is it?"
He said "The clock on the wall say three o'clock
Last call for alcohol, so what you need?"

One bourbon, one scotch, one beer
No I ain't seen my baby since a nigh' and a week,
gotta get drunk man so I can't even speak
Gonna get high man listen to me,
one drink ain't enough Jack you better make it three
I wanna get drunk I'm gonna make it real clear,
I want one bourbon, one scotch and one beer
One bourbon, one scotch, one beer

Bad to The Bone - George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:42:53 AM
On the day I was born
The nurses all gathered 'round
And they gazed in wide wonder
At the joy they had found
The head nurse spoke up
Said "leave this one alone"
She could tell right away
That I was bad to the bone

Bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone

I broke a thousand hearts
Before I met you
I'll break a thousand more, baby
Before I am through
I wanna be yours pretty baby
Yours and yours alone
I'm here to tell ya honey
That I'm bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone

SOLO

I make a rich woman beg
I'll make a good woman steal
I'll make an old woman blush
And make a young girl squeal
I wanna be yours pretty baby
Yours and yours alone
I'm here to tell ya honey
That I'm bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad

SOLO 2

And when I walk the streets
Kings and Queens step aside
Every woman I meet
They all stay satisfied
I wanna tell ya pretty baby
Well Ya see I make my own
I'm here to tell ya honey
That I'm bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-Bad

I Drink Alone - George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:44:04 AM
I drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
I drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
You know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

Every morning just before breakfast
I don't want no coffee or tea
Just me and good buddy Wiser
That's all I ever need
'Cause I drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

The other night I laid sleeping
And I woke from a terrible dream
So I caught up my pal Jack Daniel's
And his partner Jimmy Beam
And we drank alone, yeah
With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

The other day I got invited to a party
But I stayed home instead
Just me and my pal Johnny Walker
And his brothers Black and Red
And we drank alone, yeah
With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

My whole family done give up on me
And it makes me feel oh so bad
The only one who will hang out with me
Is my dear Old Grand-Dad
And we drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself

No Particular Place To Go - George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:46:11 AM
Riding along in my automobile
My baby beside me at the wheel
I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
My curiosity running wild
Crusin' and playin' the radio
With no particular place to go

Riding along in my automobile
I's anxious to tell her the way I feel
So I told her softly and sincere
And she leaned and whispered in my ear
Cuddlin' more and drivin' slow
With no particular place to go

No particular place to go
So we parked way out on ko-ko-mo
The night was young and the moon was gold
So we both decided to take a stroll
Can you image the way I felt
I couldn't unfasten her safety belt

Riding along in my calaboose
Still trying to get her belt a-loose
All the way home I held a grudge
For the safety belt that wouldn't budge
Crusin' and playing the radio
With no particular place to go

Funeral For The Good Mother - Law And Order
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:49:51 AM
What will it take for you just to see the light of day
People dying, children crying, while our mother's

Does anybody care at all
A million gallons spilling and killing
Does anybody fear enough
To leave a world in waste to our children

Mother if only I could be
The one to end your misery
You know I would

A world diseased by those who look the other way and ignore
While our hospitals wash their neeldes on Her shores

Mother it seems we've made it so hard
To hold this world together

What will it take for you just to see
The light of day

And all the rain that would have fallen on Her forests that are gone
Cut down by greed and all that's left is a hole in the sky

Mother I pray it's not too late
To hold this world together

Mary - Law And Order
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:50:53 AM
Mary, Mary like to dream all day
When cold eyes would pull her
Down to the ground. Oh, yeah

She'd say, "Why, oh why has the world such pain
When you and I could take some time and float away"

But the days got hard as time slipped by
And it just didn't seem fair
How she'd treat me during those times

Oh, there's no reason
Mary don't you understand?

In her eyes shined a far off light
When she looked back on days
When everything was alright

She said, "Life's a stream of broken dreams
And I'd hate some day
To think what might have been."

Mary, don't you understand?

The Truth About Me - Law And Order
Posted: 6/19/2011 12:52:19 AM
Ive got a battle and some peace of mind
Come on baby throw some cash on the bar
I'm not gonna come home now

I met a friend that was feelin' down
With the blues, heaven knows I've been there
When I was feelin' alone

People say that the best in life's for free
I never had much choice, don't you know the truth about me

Always ready and I ain't too proud
But I won't take this anymore
Unless I'm cold on the floor
Most women say that they don't give love for free
That never held much ground, don't you know the truth about me

My favorite lyric
Posted: 6/20/2011 7:55:29 PM
I would have given you all of my heart
but there's someone who's torn it apart
and she's taking almost all that I've got
but if you want, I'll try to love again
baby I'll try to love again but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest
'cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
when it comes to lovin' me she's worst
but when it comes to being loved she's first
that's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

I still want you by my side
just to help me dry the tears that I've cried
cause I'm sure gonna give you a try
and if you want, I'll try to love again
but baby, I'll try to love again, but I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest

'Cause when it comes to being lucky she's cursed
when it comes to lovin' me she's worst
but when it comes to being loved she's first
that's how I know

The first cut is the deepest, baby I know
The first cut is the deepest
