Dog and Butterfly (Heart):

 

"There I was with the old man
Stranded again so off I'd ran
My young world crashing around me
No possibilities of getting what I need
He looked at me and smiled
Said "No, no, no, no, no child
See the dog and butterfly
Up in the air he likes to fly."

Mr Webster (Monkees):

 

"Everyone in town knew Mr. Webster
He worked at the bank for forty years
And each week Mr. Frisby made his check out
For sixty-eight dollars, clear
And through the years he thwarted twenty-seven robberies
Each time Frisby promised him a raise

 

They gave a retirement party for Mr. Webster
Everyone from the bank was there
They had a cake and flowers ordered special
And Frisby had a speech prepared
And a little white box, in it had a little watch with this inscription
"To Mr. Webster, with regards"
Then came the telegram from Mr. Webster
Said, "Sorry, stop, cannot attend
I've flown away and taken all your money
Wish you were here to help me spend"

Beautiful Boy (John Lennon)

 

"I can hardly wait
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both
Just have to be patient,

'Cause it's a long way to go,
A hard row to hoe"

Watching the Wheels (John Lennon):

 

"People say I'm lazy, dreaming my life away
Well, they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
"Don't you miss the big time, boy. You're no longer on the ball"
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go"

Shine On, You Crazy Diamond (Pink Floyd):

 

"Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky
Shine on you crazy diamond
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom"

Changes (Bowie):

 

"And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're going through"
