- Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do
it's a good line in the context of the song watto!
I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Give peace a chance.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Manfred Mann changed the original lyrics.
Pretty much any time 'rock' is used as a verb.... it's like nails in a chalkboard.
MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
There's an old man sitting next to me
Makin' love to his tonic & gin
He says, "Son, can you play me a memory?
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad & it's sweet
And I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes.
La la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum."
Christ, that would not pass in a remedial poetry writing class for middle-schoolers.
Totally agree.... I adore Billy Joel, but Piano Man is a horrible song.
Once upon a time there was light in my life
Now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
Total eclipse of the heart
We're heading for Venus
And still we stand tall
"I had my first real sex dream" - Bryan Adams, Summer of '69
There's a little black spot on the sun today
It's the same old thing as yesterday
Excuse me while I kiss the sky
What about Doo doo doo, daa daa daa?
"She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
I said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side
And the colored girls say "
Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side
Is it my go
Is it your go
In this ever changing world in which we live in
lightning crashes, a new mother cries
her placenta falls to the floor
The definition of classic songs has some variance, it seems.
Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find
I'm hot, sticky sweet, from my head to my feet, yeah
Well you're built like a car
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're built like a car, oh yeah
Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
Cause I speak of the pompitous of love
they made up the word pompitous .
But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step
now American Pie is one of the greatest songs ever but it always makes me wince when he rhymes step with ... step !
