One More Time by April Wine

 

The man in the back smokes a pack and a half
Sayin "one more time before we go"
The lady in the front wants to roll with the punches
Just one more shot and then she'll know
Everybody's feelin' alright
Runners on an endless flight, so high
 
One more time before we go
One more song on the radio
One more time before we go
One more song on the radio

She's Tight by Cheap Trick 

 

When I'm down I make a call
Got the number written on the wall
First it's busy then I try again
Oh, who's she talking to, could it be him?
 
I got the number and it starts to ring
I get excited and I start to dream
I start to fantasize of memory lane
Then she answers and she says right way
She says "I'm home on my own, home all alone"
So I got off the phone

Whoever You Are (Geggy Tah):

 

"All I want to do is to tune in
Radio L.A. Lujah
'Cause we're broadcasting live
And we want to hear all of ya
On the mic is Geggy Tah
But a whole lot more of all of ya
Let us hear ya, let us hear ya
In a big echoing holla"

Golden tubes faintly glow
Electric faces seem to merge
Hidden voices mock your words"

Speedy's Coming  -  Scorpions

 

You look at a poster
You look at the wall
The wall in the room where you live
Where you live with your stars
Just listen to his records . . .

 

You like Alice Cooper
You like Ringo Starr
You like David Bowie
And friends in the Royal Albert Hall
Stick up the pictures, movies, TV . . .
