I'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, gal
So I'll just say fare thee well
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right

Bob Dylan ~ Don't Think Twice

Everybody's going out and having fun
I'm just a fool for staying home and having none
I can't get over how she set set me free oh lonesome me
A bad mistake I'm making by just hanging round
I know that I should have some fun and paint the town
A lovesick fool is blind and just can't see oh lonesome me
I'll bet she's not like me she's out and fancy free
She's flirtin' with the boys with all her charms
But I still love her so and brother don't you know
I'd welcome her right back here in my arms
Well there must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues
Forget about the past and find somebody new
I've thought of everything from A to Z oh lonesome me

Well I'll bet she's not like me...
Oh lonesome me oh lonesome me

Oh, Lonesome Me - Don Gibson

Seventeen, a beauty queen
She took a ride to make the scene
Godiva
Her long blond hair
Hanging down her knees
All the cats who dig strip-tea....se
. . .
Her long blond hair
Hanging down around her arms
Hiding all the ladies cha....rms
Lady Godiva.

She asks me why
I'm just a hairy guy
I'm hairy noon and night
Hair that's a fright
I'm hairy high and low
Don't ask me why
Don't know
It's not for lack of break
Like the Grateful Dead
Darling

Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there hair
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees
Give a home to the fleas in my hair
A home for fleas
A hive for bees
A nest for birds
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy
Snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty
Oily, greasy, fleecy
Shining, gleaming, streaming
Flaxen, waxen
Knotted, polka-dotted
Twisted, beaded, braided
Powdered, flowered, and confettied
Bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

Oh say can you see
My eyes if you can
Then my hair's too short

Down to here
Down to there
Down to where
It stops by itself

They'll be ga ga at the go go
When they see me in my toga
My toga made of blond
Brilliantined
Biblical hair

My hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah Mary loved her son
Why don't my mother love me?

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

Oh my name is Samuel Hall
Samuel Hall, Samuel Hall
Oh my name is Samuel Hall
And I hate you one and all
You're a bunch of mockers all
Damn your hides

etc.

Aikendrum

There was a man lived in the moon, in the moon, in the moon. There was a man lived in the moon and his name was Aikendrum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle. He played upon a ladle and his name was Aikendrum. And his hair was made of spaghetti spaghetti spaghetti. His hair was made of spaghetti and his name was Aikendrum.

And his eyes were made of meatballs meatballs meatballs. His eyes were made of meatballs and his name was Aikendrum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle. He played upon a ladle and his name was Aikendrum.

And his nose was made of cheese cheese cheese. His nose was made of cheese and his name was Aikendrum.

And his mouth was made of pizza pizza pizza. His mouth was made of pizza and his name was Aikendrum.

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
In other words hold my hand
In other words darling kiss me
Fill my life with song
And let me sing forevermore
You are all I hope for
All I worship and adore
In other words please be true
In other words I love you

Frankie

I usually look at three or four googlerefs to see if I can find the info.

You don't need no fancy tricks
Painted eyes or glossy lips
I love you just the way you are
Hope you don't mind my beat up car

You don't need to change your dress
You don't need to change your shoes

Don't try to hide your natural looks
Forget about the cover let me read the book
Don't get me wrong I like them heels
But the way I feel is the way I feel

You don't need to change your dress
You don't need to change your shoes

Go ahead be wild and free
You don't have to shave your legs for me

Shave Yo' Legs~Keb' Mo'

Just the Way You Are

I said I love you, and that's forever
And this I promise from the heart
I could not love you any better
I love you just the way you are.

-- Billy Joel
