Purple Rain

I never meant 2 cause u any sorrow
I never meant 2 cause u any pain
I only wanted 2 one time see u laughing
I only wanted 2 see u laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain

He's a good dog
I've had him for years
used to get up when I walked by
Now he justs lifts up his ears
and he listens when I talk to him
though he don't understand
when I talk too much he just ignores me
and goes to sleep again

He's a good dog
I got him as a pup
I tried to teach him all those tricks
But then I just gave up
cause he never acted very bright
though his eyes they've got this glow
and I actually think he knows some things that
actually I don't

And he never barks at strangers
and he never barks at cars
and he howls at the coyotes
while they're howlin' at the stars
and he scratches at the back door
'til someone lets him in
then he scratches at the other side
'cause he wants back out again.

He's a good dog
and one of these days
gonna have to drive him into town
and have him put away
'cause he don't hear that good no more
and he can't hardly walk
but until then I'll look at him
and say
he's a good dog.

Good Dog

I had a dog and his name was Blue
I had a dog and his name was Blue
I had a dog and his name was Blue
I betcha five dollars he's a good dog, too
Singin' "here, ol' Blue, you're a good dog, you!"

Ol' Blue come when I blow my horn
Ol' Blue come when I blow my horn
A' Blue come a' runnin' through the yella' corn
A' Blue come a' runnin' when I blow my horn
Singin' "here, ol' Blue, you're a good dog, you!"

I can hear in my head a great Pablo Cruise tune called "Runnin'" but I can't find the lyric! here's what I have:

Runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin' away

-- Pablo Cruise


guess that's all you get...

Imagine you imagining that you love me
And starting on a family tree
Imagine starting on a family tree
The mama is you and the papa is me

If your heart goes bumpety-bump
It's love, love, love!
If your throat comes up with a lump
It's love, love, love!
If your knees go knockety-knock
It's love, love, love!
If you're cuckoo like the cuckoo in the clock
It's love, love, love!

Imagine you imagining a cozy flat
Complete with running dog and cat
Imagine having running dog and cat
And we will have welcome all over the mat

If your heart goes bumpety-bump
It's love, love, love!
If your throat comes up with a lump
It's love, love, love!
If your knees go knockety-knock
It's love, love, love!
If you're cuckoo like the cuckoo in the clock
It's love, love, love!

Imagine you imagining a man and wife
We'll go and buy a fork and a knife
Imagine eating with a fork and a knife
How ritzy we'll be for the rest of our life

If your heart goes bumpety-bump
It's love, love, love!
If your throat comes up with a lump
It's love, love, love!
If your knees go knockety-knock
It's love, love, love!
If you're cuckoo like the cuckoo in the clock
It's love, love, love!

What?
"If your knees go knockety-knock
If you're cuckoo like the cuckoo in the clock"
?

It's gotta be the great Guy Lombardo and his orchestra back in 1944 playing "It's Love, Love, Love"

Regrettably, they don't write lyrics like that anymore... thankfully.

A man walks down the street
He says why am I soft in the middle now
Why am I soft in the middle
The rest of my life is so hard
I need a photo-opportunity
I want a shot at redemption
Donít want to end up a cartoon
In a cartoon graveyard
Bonedigger bonedigger
Dogs in the moonlight
Far away my well-lit door
Mr. Beerbelly Beerbelly
Get these mutts away from me
You know I donít find this stuff amusing anymore
If youíll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty
And Betty when you call me
You can call me Al


Al Nivrfergityah


edit: Ok, same song, different word can do it!

Mother I want to be married
I want to be a bride
I want to live with that young *man*
Forever by my side
Forever by my side
Oh, happy I will be
For I'm young and merry
And oh so weary
Of my-y virginity

Elizabethan ditty?

Night's the garden wall
Evening's a creeping vine
And our fingers are woven
Into stanzas that rhyme
The thunder is such a fright
And the sky is a cloth
And the moon's bright night light
Reflects off a moth

In your sad arms she comforts
Time is devout
And forever collapses to the span of a flower

Slow down, you move too fast
You gotta make the morning last
Just kickin' down the cobblestones
Lookin' for fun and
Feelin' groovy....

Hello lampost
Whatcha knowin?
I've come to watch your flowers growin'
Ain'tcha got no rhymes for me?
Doo Bee Doo Doo,
Feelin' groovy....

Got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morningtime drop all its petals on me...
Life, I love you,
All is groovy....

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue
When you're close to me, I can feel your heart beat
I can hear you breathing near my ear
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me
'got a groovy kind of love

Anytime you want to you can turn me onto
Anything you want to, anytime at all
When I kiss your lips, ooh I start to shiver
Can't control the quivering inside
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me
got a groovy kind of love, oh

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue
When I'm in your arms, nothing seems to matter
My whole world could shatter, I don't care
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me
'got a groovy kind of love

We got a groovy kind of love
We got a groovy kind of love, oh
We got a groovy kind of love
