Found a Job (Talking Heads):  

 

"D--- that television what a bad picture"!
"Don't get upset, it's not a major disaster".
"There's nothing on tonight", he said, "I don't know what's the matter"!
"Nothing's ever on", she said, "so I don't know why you bother."

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
