She floats like a swan
Grace on the water
Lips like sugar
Lips like sugar
Just when you think you've caught her
She glides across the water
She calls for you tonight
To share this moonlight

You'll flow down her river
She'll ask you and you'll give her
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses

"I, I can remember
Standing by the wall
And the guns shot above our heads
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall
And the shame was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
Then we could be heroes just for one day"

Will you tell us that you're okay?

And then you ran into the bedroom.

There's still crime in the city,
Said the cop on the beat,
I don't know if I can stop it
I feel like meat on the street
They paint my car like a target
I take my orders from fools
Meanwhile some kid
blows my head off
Well, I play by their rules
That's why I'm doin' it my way
I took the law in my hands

So here I am in the alleyway
A wad of cash in my pants

He says he looks up to me

But it's good to be free.

Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing only to find

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

As time rolls by, my heart grows fonder,
And yearns more lovingly for thee!

And friends are ever kind and true,
Tho joyous mirth and song surround me,

In this world I'll call home."

And my soul to you son
So pale turns the innocence
And all I feel is pain.
Suddenly I understand

Wouldn't want to touch you with a six foot chisel.
Born in goop - raised in poop -

Deemed dope by the Pope, and I boned till I croaked.
I'm an emcee Shredder, but I get the feeling

I'm a rap god and you can't quite touch me;
This battle's your Last Judgement, trust me.

(Donatello & Leonardo) We drop science,
(Rafael & Michaelangelo) We got the mathematics.
(all) The architects of rebirth are rap addicts!
You beat the Foot, but it won't go well
(Donatello) When you catch an Italian (all) boot to the half-shell.

(Donatello) Taught us not to rush to violence.
(Raphael) But our master, Master Splinter,
(Michaelangelo) Ain't here, Dude!

Get back in your floppy helicopter - fly away!

I'm a pristine Sistine nun chucka.

Put you back in school with the tip of my two sai.

'Cause I don't Gattamelata clue what you do.

The best insulting song ever is called 'The Curse Word Song' by Swedish comedic duo Magnus and Brasse.

The first verse goes like this:

"Bondlurk, läbbiga skurk, ynkliga parasit.
Pottsork, snuskiga stork, din ruttna rot, din fulla kork.
Avskum, spattig och krum, du är så jäkla dum.
Ditt usla gam, din slemmige torsk, förnicklade, pappskalle skum."

Translated to English, it'd end up something like this:

"Hillbilly, vile villain, pitiful parasite.
Potty vole, squalor stork, your rotten root, you drunken cork.
Scum, spavin and bent, you are so bloody dumb.
You vile vulture, you slimy cod, you nickel plated, shifty cardboard skull."

Trust me, it loses a whole lot in translation.

Come get up my baby
Look at that sky, life's begun
Nights are warm and the days are young
Come get up my baby

Once I'm begging

Golden years, gold, whop, whop, whop
Come get up my baby

From far beyond
I can hear them sing
I hear angels sing
Songs of innocence
I hear the angel sing

Despite the facts are clear
It cannot be, what we can't see
I must admit, it sounds so sweet

Joyful it seems but
Then suddenly
By one false move it's blown away
Joyful it seems but
Then suddenly
Their voices cease it's gone away
Vanished to the point of no return

Sound system gonna bring me back up (yea!)
One thing that I can depend on
Sound system gonna bring me back up (right!)
One thing that I can depend on

Try to describe to the limit of my ability:
Its there for a second
Then it's given up what it used to be

Contained in music somehow more than just sound
This inspiration coming and twisting things around

Because you always know that it's gonna have to go
You always know that you'll be back in the cold.
Point of departure sublimated in a song
Its always coming to give me that hope for just a second
Then it's gone, but!

Sound system gonna bring me back up (right!)

Sound system gonna bring me back up (yea!)

Tales of a brave man who lived far from here
Now the bard songs are over and it's time to leave

Tomorrow will take us away far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bard's songs will remain

He heard one guitar, just blew him away
He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day
Bought a beat up six string in a secondhand store
Didn't know how to play it, but he knew for sure

That one guitar, felt good in his hands
Didn't take long, to understand
Just one guitar, slung way down low
Was one way ticket, only one way to go

So he started rockin'
Ain't never gonna stop
Gotta keep on rockin'
Someday he's gonna make it to the top

And be a jukebox hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a jukebox hero
He took one guitar, jukebox hero, stars in his eyes
Jukebox hero, he'll come alive tonight

The Charlie Daniels Band - The Devil Went Down to GeorgiaThe Devil went down to Georgia. He was lookin' for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind. He was willing to make a deal
When he came across this young man sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.
And the Devil jumped upon a hickory stump and said "Boy, let me tell you what."

"I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player, too.
And if you'd care to take a dare I'll make a bet with you.
Now you play a pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the Devil his due.
I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul 'cause I think I'm better than you."

The boy said, "My name's Johnny, and it might be a sin,
But I'll take your bet; and you're gonna regret 'cause I'm the best there's ever been."


Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard.
'Cause Hell's broke loose in Georgia and the Devil deals it hard.
And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold,
But if you lose the devil gets your soul.

The Devil opened up his case and he said, "I'll start this show."
And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow.
And he pulled the bow across the strings and it made an evil hiss.
And a band of demons joined in and it sounded something like this.

[music]

When the Devil finished, Johnny said, "Well, you're pretty good ol' son,
But sit down in that chair right there and let me show you how it's done."

"Fire on the Mountain." Run, boys, run!
The Devil's in the house of the rising sun;
Chicken's in the bread pan picking out dough.
Granny, does your dog bite? No, child, no.

[music]

The Devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat.
And he laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet.
Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back if you ever wanna try again,
I done told you once—you son of a bitch—I'm the best that's ever been."
And he played:

"Fire on the Mountain." Run, boys, run!
The Devil's in the house of the rising sun;
The chicken's in the bread pan picking out dough.
Granny, will your dog bite? No, child, no.

How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer's deadly toy?
There is no monopoly in common sense
On either side of the political fence.
We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology.
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too.

There is no historical precedent
To put the words in the mouth of the President.
There's no such thing as a winnable war;
It's a lie we don't believe anymore.

Suddenly, a shot rang out, and I saw Julie falling.
I ran to her, I held her close?; When I looked down, my hands were red.

Rising against the nightscape.
A mountain, a bulwark, a fortress.

Hopeless against what was to come,
And too noble to be felled by cruel hand,
Laid themselves down.

And took them in her tendrils.

"It's Christmas time
there's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty
we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world

But say a prayer
pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard
But when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window,
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them
Instead of you"

OK, no one's posted in here for a full week, so I'm calling for a new topic.

Songs which mentions Locations

Edit: Also, to clarify, I was thinking proper location names. Like countries, landmarks, cities and the like.
Not generic places like "The River" or "Our house" or "The Fields of Barley"..

"I could escape this feeling with my China Girl
I feel a wreck without my little China Girl
I hear her heart beating loud as thunder
Saw these stars crashing" - David Bowie, China Girl

I was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, alone and unceremoniously
Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, when life was taken from me

Our tree was full and green, I had to leave it
The sadness was overwhelming,
To be alone beneath it

The sun came down hot and hard, I could never sleep
To disappear was the only way I could find relief


Woods of Ypres - I Was Buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery

"Now the band that we hired
Is playing quite inspired
Singing Eskimos and eunuchs from Bangkok
And this location's so nice
We'll never run out of ice
‘Cause Antarctica's just around the block!"

Jimmy Buffett - Party at the End of the World

"Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away
If you can use some exotic booze
There's a bar in far Bombay
Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

Come fly with me, let's float down to Peru
In llama land there's a one-man band
And he'll toot his flute for you
Come fly with me, let's take off in the blue"

Come Fly With Me - Ol' Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra

Oh Alabama.
Can I see you
and shake your hand.
Make friends down in Alabama.
I'm from a new land
I come to you
and see all this ruin
What are you doing Alabama?
You got the rest of the union
to help you along
What's going wrong?

Alabama - Neil Young

Thrown towards Arnhem a bitter defeat
They're stretched out just one bridge too far
Turn of the tide, it's breaking away
Losing momentum, retreat

Go to Bastogne, the crossroads must hold
Stand, alone in the cold

Crack of the lightning splitting the ground
Thunder is sounding, artillery pounding
Wrath of the Nazi's cast on Bastogne
Facing their forces alone

ALONE!

ALONE!

Screaming Eagles- Sabaton.

A large number of their other songs as well.

"I'm going to Kansas City
Kansas City, here I come
I'm going to Kansas City
Kansas City, here I come
They got a crazy way of loving there
And I'm gonna get me one..."

Fats Domino - Kansas City
