Rosalinda's Eyes by Billy Joel

 

"Crazy latin dancing solo down in Herald Square

Oh Havana I've been searching for you everywhere

And though I'll never be there

I know what I would see there

I can always find my Cuban skies

In Rosalinda's eyes"......

Immigrant Song - Led Zepplin  

 

Ah-ah, ah!
Ah-ah, ah!
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun, where the hot springs flow
The hammer of the gods
W'ell drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, and sing and cry
Valhalla, I am coming!
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore
Ah-ah, ah!
Ah-ah, ah!
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
How soft your fields so green
Can whisper tales of gore
Of how we calmed the tides of war
We are your overlords
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore
So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

I Am The Walrus

DBEATLS

 

 

 

Sitting in an English garden
Waiting for the sun
If the sun don't come you get a tan
From standing in the English rain
 
I am the egg man (How do you do sir?)
They are the egg men (The man maintains a fortune)
I am the walrus
Goo goo g'joob, goo goo goo g'joob
 
Expert, texpert choking smokers
Don't you think the joker laughs at you (Ho ho ho, hee hee hee, hah hah hah)
See how they smile like pigs in a sty
See how they snide
I'm crying
 
Semolina Pilchard
Climbing up the Eiffel tower
Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna
Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allen Poe

Killer Queen by Queen

 

"She keeps her Moët et Chandon

In her pretty cabinet

"Let them eat cake" she says

Just like Marie Antoinette

A built-in remedy

For Khrushchev and Kennedy

At anytime an invitation 

You can't decline"......

 

 


I've got this one in my "Songs About Hookers" playlist.

Burnin' For You - Blue Oyster Cult (lyrics by Richard Meltzer)
 
Home in the valley
Home in the city
Home isn't pretty
Ain't no home for me
Home in the darkness
Home on the highway
Home isn't my way
Home will never be
Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight
I'm living for giving the devil his due
And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
Time is the essence
Time is the season
Time ain't no reason
Got no time to slow
Time everlasting
Time to play b-sides
Time ain't on my side
Time I'll never know
Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I'm not the one to tell you what's wrong or what's right
I've seen suns that were freezing and lives that were through
Well I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight
I'm living for giving the devil his due
And I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you

Sentimental Lady by Bob Welch

 

"And all of the things that I said that I wanted

Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you

Fourteen joys and a will to be merry

And all of the things we say are very

Sentimental gentle wind

Blowing through my life again

Sentimental lady

Gentle one"......

"The fireman rushes in from the pouring rain,

Very strange."

I've always like this from "Penny Lane"

Turn The Page - Bob Seger

 

On a long and lonesome highway
East of Omaha
You can listen to the engine
moanin' out his one note song
You can think about the woman
or the girl you knew the night before
But your thoughts will soon be wandering
the way they always do
When you're ridin' sixteen hours
and there's nothin' much to do
And you don't feel much like ridin',
you just wish the trip was through
*
Well you walk into a restaurant,
strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you
as you're shakin' off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you
but you just want to explode
Most times you can't hear 'em talk,
other times you can
All the same old cliches,
"Is that a woman or a man?"
And you always seem outnumbered,
you don't dare make a stand
*
Out there in the spotlight
you're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy
you try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body
like the music that you play
Later in the evening
as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers
ringin' in your head
You smoke the day's last cigarette,
rememberin' what she said
 
*Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
Turn the page

If not for you by Bob Dylan, George Harrison

 

"If not for you

The winter would hold no spring

Couldn't hear a robin sing

I just wouldn't have a clue, if not for you"......
