    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    Well, I could on and on about Elvis Costello's lyrics. 

    "Don't put your heart out on your sleeve when your remarks are off the cuff." 

    From "Riot Act" on Get Happy.  Not one of his greats as a song, but that's one helluva lyric.

    "The canvas that he splatters will be the picture that you never paint." 

    From "Deep Dark Truthful Mirror" on Spike

    "They say that travel broadens the mind, 'til you can't get your head out of doors."

    From "God's Comic" on Spike

    Why can't a man stand alone?
    Must he be burdened by all that he's taught to consider his own?
    His skin and his station, his kin and his crown, his flag and his nation
    They just weigh him down
    You know pride is a sin that we tend to forgive
    But it gets hard to live
    When you don't have the love in her heart to begin with
    Why can't a man stand alone?


    From "Why Can't a Man Stand Alone" on All This Useless Beauty

    Interestingly, as great a lyricist and songwriter as he is, my favorite song of his was written by Nick Lowe.

    As I walk through
    This wicked world
    Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity.

    I ask myself
    Is all hope lost?
    Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

    And each time I feel like this inside,
    There's one thing I wanna know:
    What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
    What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

    And as I walked on
    Through troubled times
    My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
    So where are the strong
    And who are the trusted?
    And where is the harmony?
    Sweet harmony.

    'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
    What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
    What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?


    So where are the strong?
    And who are the trusted?
    And where is the harmony?
    Sweet harmony.

    'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry.
    What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
    What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh
    What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    Three off the top of my head:

    From "Wish You Were Here"...
    "We're just two lost souls living in a fish bowl
    Year after year
    Running over the same old ground
    What have we found?
    Same old fears
    Wish you were here"

    From "For No One"
    "You stay home, she goes out
    She says that long ago she knew someone
    But now he's gone
    She no longer needs him"

    And every single line of "Tangled Up In Blue"

    I'm with you on Elvis.
    My wife is named Alison, and when we got married some of my buddies suggested we play "Alison" at the wedding. I told them, "I'm not sure here parents will like the part that goes 'I heard you let that little friend of mine take off your party dress.'"

    It's interesting about people's fixation with that song, LD.  A generation of young women were named Alison based on it.  It's a great song, and a nice name; however, when you look deeper into it, it's not an association someone named Alison would want.

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    Like jesseyeric I've done a lot of raving about The Who and Quadrophenia so I thought the first lyrics I would put up would be from the album's first song, The Real Me.  The protaganist of the album, Jimmy, is a very troubled kid whose problems include having a four-part split personality, hence the album title.

    I went back to the doctor
    To get another shrink
    I sit and tell him about my weekend
    But he never betrays what he thinks

    Can you see the real me doctor?

    I went back to my mother
    I said, "I'm crazy, ma, help me"
    She said, "I know how it feels son'
    Cause it runs in the family"

    Can you see the real me mother?

    The cracks between the paving stones
    Look like rivers of flowing veins
    Strange people who know me
    Peeping from behind every window pane
    The girl I used to love
    Lives in this yellow house
    Yesterday she passed me by
    She doesn't want to know me now

    I ended up with a preacher
    Full of lies and hate
    I seemed to scare him a little
    So he showed me to the golden gate

    Can you see the real me preacher?
    Can you see the real me doctor?
    Can you see the real me mother?
    Can you see the real me?

    (Writer: Pete Townshend)

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    I have a feeling this thread may go on for sometime as we put out our lists.

    I always felt that The Weight by the Band was  a very lyrical song.

    I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about half past dead;
    I just need some place where I can lay my head.
    "Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
    He just grinned and shook my hand, and "No!", was all he said.


    (Chorus:)
    Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free;
    Take a load off Fanny, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.

    I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide;
    When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side.
    I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown."
    She said, "I gotta go, but m'friend can stick around."

    (Chorus)

    Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
    It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day.
    "Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
    He said, "Do me a favor, son, woncha stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"

    (Chorus)

    Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog.
    He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack, my dog."
    I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man."
    He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can."

    (Chorus)

    Catch a cannon ball now, t'take me down the line
    My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time.
    To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one.
    Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    Another one - lyrics are simple but colorful and with the music, I believe this song was the true beginning of "Alternative" music.

    I'm only Sleeping - The Beatles

    When I wake up early in the morning,
    Lift my head, I'm still yawning
    When I'm in the middle of a dream
    Stay in bed, float up stream

    Please don't wake me, no
    don't shake me
    Leave me where I am
    I'm only sleeping

    Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
    I don't mind, I think they're crazy
    Running everywhere at such a speed
    Till they find, there's no need

    Please don't spoil my day
    I'm miles away
    And after all
    I'm only sleeping

    Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
    Taking my time

    Lying there and staring at the ceiling
    Waiting for a sleepy feeling

    Please don't spoil my day
    I'm miles away
    And after all
    I'm only sleeping

    Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
    Taking my time

    When I wake up early in the morning,
    Lift my head, I'm still yawning
    When I'm in the middle of a dream
    Stay in bed, float up stream

    Please don't wake me, no
    don't shake me
    Leave me where I am
    I'm only sleeping

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    This one from Steve Krikorkian (Tonio K) has stuck in the back of my head for some 30 years. Every time I look up and see all the fun ways we treat each other on a daily basis, I think of "Trouble."

    I wake up every morning,
    I go to sleep each night,
    The communists, moslems
    and warmonger Texans
    are still tryin' to ruin' my life.
    'cause all the king's horses and all the
    king's men
    and all the king's idiot sons
    ain't never in all of their glorious battles
    solved anything with a gun



    It's nuthin' fancy, I suppose, but it does kind of get right to the point.

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    Here is one of many great lyrics from XTC, showing that you can be joyful without coming anywhere near sappy.

    Hey, hey,
    The clouds are whey.
    There's straw for the donkeys,
    And the innocents can all sleep safely,
    All sleep safely.

    My, my,
    Sun is pie.
    There's fodder for the cannons,
    And the guilty ones can all sleep safely,
    All sleep safely.

    And all the world is football-shaped
    It's just for me to kick in space
    And I can see, hear, smell, touch, taste
    And I've got one, two, three, four, five
    Senses working overtime
    Trying to take this all in.
    I've got one, two, three, four, five
    Senses working overtime
    Trying to taste the difference
    'Tween a lemon and a lime
    Pain and the pleasure
    And the church bells softly chime.

    Hey hey,
    Night fights day.
    There's food for the thinkers,
    And the innocents can all live slowly,
    All live slowly.
    My, my,
    The sky will cry
    Jewels for the thirsty,
    And the guilty one's can all die slowly ,
    All die slowly.

    And all the world is biscuit-shaped,
    It's just for me to feed my face,
    And I can see, hear, smell, touch, taste,
    And I've got one, two, three, four, five,
    Senses working overtime
    Trying to take this all in.
    I've got one, two, three, four, five,
    Senses working overtime
    Trying to taste the difference,
    'Tween a lemon and a lime,
    Pain and the pleasure,
    And the church bells softly chime.

    (Writer: Andy Partridge)

    Exactly! "Sometimes I wish that I could stop you from talking when I hear the silly things you say." Not exactly a love song, right? Still a great song, though my favorite by Elvis is probably "Oliver's Army."
    (Mrs. Dobler will shoot me for saying this, but she was born a few years before the song bearing her name!).

    Jess, two EXCELLENT additions. Love "The Weight," which may have the best opening line of any Rock and Roll song ever. And I've always considered "I'm Only Sleeping" the most underrated Beatles song.

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    I think my alltime favorite album for song lyrics is 'Low Budget' by The Kinks.  The album was written during the global energy crisis of 1979.  It depends on your sense of humor, but I find the lyrics about the hard economic times laugh-out-loud funny.

    From the title song:

    Cheap is small and not too steep
    But best of all cheap is cheap
    Circumstance has forced my hand
    To be a cut price person in a low budget land
    Times are hard but we'll all survive
    I just got to learn to economize

    I'm on a low budget
    I'm on a low budget
    I'm not cheap, you understand
    I'm just a cut price person in a low budget land
    Excuse my shoes they don't quite fit
    They're a special offer and they hurt me a bit
    Even my trousers are giving me pain
    They were reduced in a sale so I shouldn't complain
    They squeeze me so tight so I can't take no more
    They're size 28 but I take 34

    Art takes time, time is money
    Money's scarce and that ain't funny
    Millionaires are things of the past
    We're in a low budget film where nothing can last
    Money's rare there's none to be found
    So don't think I'm tight if I don't buy a round


    From A Gallon of Gas:

    I went to my local dealer to see if he could set me straight
    He said there's a little gas going but I'd have to wait
    But he offered some red hot speed and some really high grade hash
    But a gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere for any amount of cash

    I can score you some coke and some grade one grass
    But I can't get a gallon of gas
    I've got some downers some speed all the drugs that you need
    But I can't get a gallon of gas
    There's no more left to buy or sell
    There's no more oil left in the well
    A gallon of gas can't be purchased anywhere
    For any amount of cash


    There are also some poignantly philosophical songs like this one, In A Space:

    In a space allocated to me by the human race
    Inhabiting this area until I die this space is occupied
    I'm in a space leased by kind permission of the human race
    Close up I am big but far away I'm small and hardly here at all
    'Cause in a space out in space
    We disappear without a trace

    Now I'm out in inner space
    And lookin' at the people. standing face to face
    And filling up the space
    Men and women boys and girls
    There are so many people in the world
    Thinkin' about the world
    And all the people in it
    And I'm staring at the stars
    And into the infinite
    In a world within a world
    On a planet that's
    Driftin' in a space

    But nothing beats a good song lyric that hits back at the people we love to hate...the government!!!

    Say YEAH, say 'yes' again
    stand up, there's a head count

    open up your eyes just to check that you're asleep again.

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    Here is a great one that all us Rockers can identify with:

    Signs

    And the sign says "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
    So I put my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
    He said you look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do
    So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that, huh, me working for you"

    [Chorus:]
    Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs
    Blockin' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
    Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign

    And the sign says "Anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight"
    So I jumped the fence and I yelled at the house
    Hey! What gives you the right!
    To put up a fence and keep me out, or to keep Mother Nature in
    If God was here, he'd tell it to your face, man, you're some kind of sinner

    [Chorus]

    Oh, say now mister, can't you read
    You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
    You can't watch, no you can't eat, you ain't supposed to be here

    And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" - uh!

    [Solo]

    And the sign says "Everybody welcome, come in, kneel down and pray"
    But then they passed around a plate at the end of it all
    And I didn't have a penny to pay
    So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own fcukin' sign
    I said, "Thank you Lord for thinking 'bout me, I'm alive and doing fine", oh

    [Chorus 2x]

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    At work this morning someone mentioned that a man who recently passed away was a very good fiddle player. This , of course, reminded me of Charlie Daniels.

    You all must surely remember "Uneasy Rider" ,

    I'd have to say that most of the songs by Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Warren Zevon and Jackson Browne contain suberb lyrics.

    How about this one from the Jefferson Airplane:

    (3/5th's of a Mile in Ten Seconds)

    Take me to a circus tent
    where I can easily pay my rent
    and all the other freaks will share my cares
    know I love ya baby , yes I do
    Do away with things that come on obscene
    like hot rods,beauty queens and real fine nicotine
    sometimes it buys for 65 dollars
    prices like that make a grown man holler
    'specially when it's sold by a kid who's only 15

    Nice.

    I also propose:

    The Seeker - The Who

    And of course - The Alabama Song

    Show me the way to the next whiskey bar

    Show me the way to the next little girl

    I pretty much lived 17-45 by those two passages.

    Re: Favorite Song Lyrics

    I've looked under chairs
    I've looked under tables
    I've tried to find the key
    To fifty million fables

    chorus:
    They call me The Seeker
    I've been searching low and high
    I won't get to get what I'm after
    Till the day I die

    I asked Bobby Dylan
    I asked The Beatles
    I asked Timothy Leary
    But he couldn't help me either

    chorus

    People tend to hate me
    'Cause I never smile
    As I ransack their homes
    They want to shake my hand

    Focusing on nowhere
    Investigating miles
    I'm a seeker
    I'm a really desperate man

    I won't get to get what I'm after
    Till the day I die

    I learned how to raise my voice in anger
    Yeah, but look at my face, ain't this a smile?
    I'm happy when life's good
    And when it's bad I cry
    I've got values but I don't know how or why

    I'm looking for me
    You're looking for you
    We're looking in at each other
    And we don't know what to do

    They Call me the seeker

    For my money, it doesn't get much better than "Desperados Under the Eaves." Also "Accidentally Like a Martyr."
