"Ordinary Man" - Gordon Lightfoot

Try to understand
I'm not your ordinary man, still I can't deny
You go with me everywhere
When I'm dreamin' you still share my lonely nights

Try to see my side
It's not your ordinary pride that keeps drivin' me on
It's that lonesome, restless feelin' that you feel under the gun
And it leads me to the highways but it keeps my body warm

And as I wander to the cities and the towns
I get so lonesome knowin' you could be around
And when the show is over, there's a holiday motel
Another empty bottle and another tale to tell

Try to comprehend
I'm not your ordinary friend at the end of my life
I would pray that I could be
Returning to the shelter of your love

Try to see my side
It's not your ordinary pride that keeps drivin' me on
It's that lonesome, restless feelin' that you feel under the gun
And it leads me to the highways but it keeps my body warm

And as I wander to the cities and the towns
I get so lonesome knowin' you could be around
And when the show is over, there's a holiday motel
Another empty bottle and another tale to tell

Try to understand
I'm not your ordinary man, still I can't deny
You go with me everywhere
Like a shadow in the gloom
I remember all the good times
There's a ghost in every room

"Right Before Your Eyes" - America

Every day I sit beside you
On the bus to Madison Avenue
Work in the big gray store
With the revolving doors

You don't even know my name
I guess that I'm to blame
Don't know the right things to say
So I pretend away

That I'm Rudolph Valentino
Pull up in my limousine
Oh, won't you come in out of the rain
Things'll never be the same

And then just like Greta Garbo
You stare like there's no tomorrow
And you'll know what I'm thinking of
Right before your eyes I fall in love with you

Do, do, do ...

Today I'm done with games (today I'm done with games)
Gonna ask you for your name
Say I've been watching you
I even know what you do

Maybe today I'll tell you (maybe today I'll tell you)
I've found the nerve to sell you
On a guy like me
Who wishes that he could be

Your Rudolph Valentino
Pull up in my limousine
Oh, won't you come in out of the rain
Thing'll never be the same

And then just like Greta Garbo
You stare like there's no tomorrow
And you'll know what I'm thinking of
Right before your eyes I fall in love with you

Do, do, do ...

Right before your eyes I fall in love with you
Right before my eyes you'll say you love me to

Rudolph Valentino
I pull up in my limousine
Oh, won't you come in out of the rain
Things'll never be the same

And then just like Greta Garbo
You stare like there's no tomorrow
And you'll know what I'm thinking of

"Tin Man" - America

Sometimes late when things are real
And people share the gift of gab between themselves
Some are quick to take the bait
And catch the perfect prize that waits among the shelves

But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn't, didn't already have
And Cause never was the reason for the evening
Or the tropic of Sir Galahad.

So please believe in me
When I say I'm spinning round, round, round, round
Smoke glass stain bright color
Image going down, down, down, down
Soapsuds green like bubbles

Oh, Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn't, didn't already have
And Cause never was the reason for the evening
Or the tropic of Sir Galahad

So please believe in me
When I say I'm spinning round, round, round, round
Smoke glass stain bright color
Image going down, down, down, down
Soapsuds green like bubbles

No, Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn't, didn't already have
And Cause never was the reason for the evening
Or the tropic of Sir Galahad

So please believe in me

It starts in my belly
Then up to my heart
Into my mouth I can't keep it shut
Do you recognize the smell
Is that how you tell
Us apart

I fool myself
To sleep and dream
Nobody's there
No-one but me
So cool
You're hardly there
Why can't this be killing you

Frankenstein would want your mind
Your lovely head
Your lovely head

Oh my lord, this song's lyrics have been confusing me since I was a child! :huh:

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

"I'll Never Smoke Weed With Willie Again" - Toby Keith

I always heard that his herb was top shelf
Lord I just could not wait to find out for myself.
Well don't knock it till you've tried it.
And I've tried it my friend.
I'll never smoke Weed with willie again!

Now we learned a hard lesson in a small Texas town
He fired up a fat boy and he passed it around
The last words I spoke before they tucked me in
I may discount Bungee jump but,
I'll never smoke weed with Willie again.

I'll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
You can pour me some Old Whiskey River my friend.
But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

We hopped on his old bus the Honeysuckel Rose
The party was Huntsville, it was after the show
Alone in the front lounge, just me and him
I took one friendly puff and the grim creeper set in

I'll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
You can pour me some Old Whiskey River my friend.
But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

Now we're passin' the guitar, we're tellin' good jokes
I can tell one's a comin' 'cause I'm smellin' smoke
No I do not partake I just let it pass by
With a grin on my face and a great contact high

I'll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
You can pour me some Old Whiskey River my friend.
But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

In the fetal position with drool on my chin
We broke down and smoked weed with Willie again

And tell me
When will our eyes meet
When can I touch you
When will this strong yearning end
And when will I hold you again

...also from Barry Manilow.

And Baby, I love you
Come...
Come...
Come into my arms
Let me know the wonder of all of you
And Baby, I want you now
Now...
Now, and how on fast
Could this be the magic, at last

(Whew! It's warm in here, and it ain't my coffee!)

"Just a Song Before I Go" - Crosby, Stills and Nash

Just a song before I go,
To whom it may concern.
Travelling twice the speed of sound
It's easy to get burned.

When the shows were over
We had to get back home,
And when we opened up the door
I had to be alone.

She helped me with my suitcase,
She stands before my eyes
Driving me to the airport,
And to the friendly skies.
Going through security
I held her for so long.
She finally looked at me in love,
And she was gone.

Just a song before I go,
A lesson to be learned.
Travelling twice the speed of sound
It's easy to get burned.

"Hope" - Klaatu


Hope is like a lighthouse keeper's beam
Hope the master cobbler of our dreams
For Hope believes in desert streams
The mightiest of stars
The microcosm in a jar
Vast or small they all revolve on Hope

Hope the guardian angel of the dove
Hope a gift of guidance from above
For Hope is the heart in mother's love
No plans could be conceived
No ships could fare the seas
For there would be no courage were it not for Hope

Now the path before us lies before our very eyes
Don't you see
And it leads up to the gateway
Lead me through
Don't you see

Then come and take my hand
Raise up your head
And dry your eyes
For up ahead I see
Woh woh yeah
A ray of peace
A-shining on me

So let us feel Hope
And feel the sunrise in our minds
To give Hope is to enlighten all mankind
Ah but lose Hope and life seems black as blind
When faith gives way to fear
When motivation disappears
All is lost if one abandons Hope
All is lost
If one abandons Hope

"A Million Miles Away" - Klaatu

(pretty much sums up my school days)


They used to tell me that I was just a fool
Dreaming away my time
But they soon found the more they put me down
The more I blocked them from my mind
I used to get my teacher so uptight
He'd always have to ask his questions twice

I'd be a million miles away
Drifting through time and space
I was a million miles away from any place
I was a million miles away
In a world of my own
A million miles away to parts unknown
I'd be gone

My end-of-term reports would always show
I did pretty well at school
But I kept them hid from all the other kids
I didn't want to seem uncool
My homeroom teacher didn't understand
The reason why I never raised my hand
I was a million miles away
In a world of my own
A million miles away in parts unknown
I'd be gone

I've flown across the galaxies
And been to Berkeley Square
I've passed the time with Sophocles
But never left my chair
But I'm a million miles away
Drifting through time and space
A million miles away from any place
A million miles away
I've built a world all my own
A million miles away to parts unknown
I'd be gone
A million miles away

"Till Tomorrow" - Don McLean

What can this be - can you tell me
Would you like to discover
Why we're not free - to be lovers
I've been wanting to ask you

Where has all the love gone
And what have we become
Storm clouds full of thunder
Move silent as they drum

And when they're gone, we'll be fine - till tomorrow
Oh I hope it won't rain
You will be mine - and my sorrow
Will take wings in the morning

High above the heavens
A rainbow paints the sky
White doves sing their songs of love
I watch them as they fly - and wonder

What can this be - can you tell me
Would you like to discover
Why we're not free - to be lovers...

theme tune to "Red Dwarf"


It's cold outside
Theres no kind of atmosphere
I'm all alone, more or less
Let me fly far away from here
Fun Fun Fun, in the Sun Sun Sun
I want to lie, Shipwrecked in-comatose
Drinking fresh mango juice
Gold fish shoals
Nibbling at my toes
Fun Fun Fun in the Sun Sun Sun
Fun Fun Fun in the Sun Sun Sun

I pack my bags and head into hyperspace,
Where I'll succeed at time-warp speeds
Spend my days in ultraviolet rays
Fun Fun Fun, in the Sun Sun Sun

We'll lock on course straight through the universe
You and me and the galaxy
Reach the stage where hyper-drive's engaged
Fun Fun Fun, in the Sun Sun Sun
Fun Fun Fun, in the Sun Sun Sun

So you want to be a rock and roll star?
Then listen now to what I say

Just get an electric guitar
Then take some time
And learn how to play

And with your hair swung right
And your pants too tight
It's gonna be all right

Then it's time to go downtown
Where the agent man won't let you down

Sell your soul to the company
Who are wating there to sell plastic ware

And in a week or two
If you make the charts
The girls'll tear you apart

The price you paid for your riches and fame
Was it all a strange game?
You're a little insane

The money, the game, and the public acclaim
Don't forget what you are
You're a rock and roll star

La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la...
______________________________

- The Byrds, 'So You Want To Be A Rock and Roll Star'

(Tom Petty and Pearl Jam do excellent covers of this song)
