I'll go with the obligatory Buffett song and save the easy ones for next turn...

"Up among the firs where it smells so sweet
Or down in the valley where the river used to be
I got my mind on eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are…
I'm wondering where the lions are…"

Jimmy Buffett - Wondering Where the Lions Are

Out on the farm we'll be
Swimming with the mother duck
Deep in the mitten where
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

We dream like lions
warm in the frost
fresh from the kill
tiny teeth and claws
We dream like lions

"I don't wanna be your tiger,
Cause tigers play too rough,
I don't wanna be your lion,
Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough~"

Elvis Presley (RIP) - Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear

I guess I'll post the one we're all waiting for, then...

"Wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh
Wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh
Wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh
Wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh

In the jungle, the mighty jungle
The lion sleeps tonight
In the jungle, the quiet jungle
The lion sleeps tonight

Near the village, the peaceful village
The lion sleeps tonight
Near the village, the quiet village
The lion sleeps tonight


Token - The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Go on, admit it! You sang the Wimoweh parts in your head, didn't you?

See, I thought that one was too obvious.

Also, I always hear that song in Nathan Lane's voice.

Yeah, I was...though I sound more like Pete Seeger.

"Walking through forests of Palm Tree Apartments
Scoff at the monkeys who live in their dark tents
Down by the waterhole, drunk every Friday
Eating their nuts, saving their raisins for Sunday
Lions and tigers who wait in the shadows
They're fast but they're lazy and sleep in green meadows!"

You guys make it seem so obvious in hindsight :smallredface:

Anyway, this is from my memory:

"Well I'm on the rock,
and I take a stock
And I'm runningike a fugitive,
to save the life I live,
I'm gonna be iron, like a lion, in Zion
I'm gonna be iron, like a lion, in Zion
Iron, iron, lion, Zion~"

Bob Marley (RIP) - Iron, Lion, Zion.

"Drift away
It could have been all
Songs in the street
It was nearly complete

It was nearly so sweet
And now I'm singing
Three lions on a shirt
Jules Rimet still gleaming"

2016-03-09, 05:19 PM
Let every creature go for broke and sing
Let's hear it in the herd and on the wing
It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling

Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
Oh, I just can't waaaaaait ... to be king!

I Just Can't Wait to be King - The Lion King

Welcome back, Neli!

"Now Samson and the lion, they got in a tack
Samson he crawled up on the lion's back
You read about this lion, he killed a man with his paws
But Samson got his hands around that lion's jaws

He ripped the beast till he killed him dead
The bees made honey in the lion's head

Grateful Dead - Samson & Delilah

Say what you wanna
But I'm here to stay
'Cause I'm a mean ole lion
You can go where you're gonna
But don't get in my way
I'm a mean ole lion

You'll be standing in a draft
If you don't hear me laugh
And if you happen to come around
Well, you best not make me frown
For I just might knock you down
I'm a mean ole lion

So, after a couple of months at another job where I couldn't be much involved in this, I'm back at my old job and able to participare a bit again.

So, instead of lion about, I'll jump in* and posit a NEW TOPIC™

Since I'm working in a call centre, this week's topic is: Telephones (and other forms of verbal communication)
For this topic, I'm banning 'Hotline Bling' by Drake and 'Call Me Maybe' by Carly Rae Jepsen.


*See what I did there, incorporating the past two topics in that link?

I see what you did there. Welcome back, by the way. Lots of songs with telephones, I'm sure :3
Also - other forms of verbal communication? Does Springsteen's song talk to me count? :3


Operator, well could you help me make this call,
See the number on the matchbook is old and faded,
She's living in LA,
With my best old ex-friend Ray,
A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

Thanks, Scarlet. Good to be back. Nice to be missed.

Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to?
You give me somethin' I can hold on to
I know you think I'm like the others before

I need to make you mine

"Everybody's on the phone
So connected and all alone
From the pizza boy to the socialite
We all salute the satellites

Won't you text me with your master plan?
You're loud and clear but I don't understand
I'm a digital explorer in analog roam
And everybody's on the phone!"

No New Year's Day to celebrate
No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away
No first of spring
No song to sing
In fact here's just another ordinary day

No April rain
No flowers bloom
No wedding Saturday within the month of June
But what it is, is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

Stevie Wonder - I Just Called To Say I Love You

"I was sitting around a dead dial,
Just another lost number in a file,
Dancing down a dark hole,
Just searching for a world with some soul,

This is Radio Nowhere,
Is there anybody alive out there?
This is Radio Nowhere,
Is there anybody alive out there?
Is there anybody alive out there?"

Bruce Springsteen - Radio Nowhere

"Park that car
drop that phone
sleep on the floor
dream about me
park that car
drop that phone
sleep on the floor
dream about me...
park that car
drop that phone
park that car
drop that phone
dream about me...

Used to be one of the rotten ones
and I liked you for that
now you're all gone
got your make-up on
and you're not coming back"

Hey you out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home.

Hey You - Pink Floyd

Ooo, good one!

"I'm in the phone booth, it's the one across the hall
If you don't answer, I'll just ring it off the wall
I know he's there, but I just had to call
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone!"

Blondie - Hanging On The Telephone

"He needs a quiet room
With a lock to keep him in
It's just a quiet room
And he's there

He plays an old guitar
With a coin found by the phone
It was his friends guitar
That he played

He's never been in love
But he knows just what love is
He said nevermind
And no-one speaks

He thinks he drinks too much
Cos when he tells his too best friends
'I think I drink too much'
No-one speaks
No-one speaks
No-one speaks"

"In hell,
there's a big hotel
Where the bar just closed
And the windows never open,
No phone,
So you can't call home,
And the TV works,
But the clicker is broken."

Billy Joel - Blonde Over Blue

I actually use this verse in real life, quite a bit :smalltongue:

2016-03-16, 04:30 PM
"In Hollywood I got the phone call
That made my heart and my limosine stall
Falling down in the hotel hall again
Little drunk from the Warners' Christmas ball
Got my love hand-carved by switchblade
He's been gone nearly half a decade
Got my love hand-carved by switchblade
He's been gone nearly half a decade"

The Search For Cherry Red - Jonathan Fire*Eater

Guess I gotta deal with the fact that, you ain't never comin' back
Now every woman that I look at I'm lookin' for you
So I'm findin' something the matter with them
Excuse to not see anyone
Useless, rather pick up the phone, not at all, followin' protocol
I get bowled like bowling balls
No balls and go to call to talk, forget what I want to say
Damnit I'm drawin' blanks like I'm playin' hangman

Die alone - Eminem

"I tried to telephone
They said you were not home
That's a lie
'Cause I know where you've been
I saw you walk in your door

I nearly died, I nearly died
'Cause you walked hand in hand
With another man in my place

No reply, no reply..."

Beatles - No Reply

"Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
The Martians could land in the car park and no one would care
Closed-circuit cameras in department stores
Shoot the same movie every day
And the stars of these films neither die nor get killed
Just survive constant action replay

And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before

And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow"

Del Amitri - Nothing Ever Happens

2016-03-18, 01:05 AM
"Ringing, stinging,
Jerking like a nervous bird
Rattling up against its cage,
Calls to me throughout the day,
See the feathers fly.

No phone, no phone, I just want to be alone today
No phone, no phone
No phone, no phone, I just want to be alone today."

Cake - No Phone

"Oh, I didn't wanna do it, but I got too lonely,
I had to call you up in the middle of the ni~i~ight,
I know it's awful hard to try to make love long distance,
But I really needed simulation
Though it was only my imagination"

Billy Joel - Sometimes A Fantasy a song dedicated to long distance relationships (over the phone):smallsmile:

2016-03-18, 05:58 AM
I'm not trying to be clever
but at least we're not still living together
All those calls in the evening / if I answered they'd hang up without speaking
And they / bored you / But I / don't want to cry / or talk for hours
to a machine / on the end / of a telephone line
Oh it just kills me / when all you've got to do is call
Oh do it any time / 'cause there's never no-one home / never no-one home
Leave your message on the ansaphone


Are you really not at home? / Or are you there but not alone?
Screening calls / you don't want to receive / meaning calls
calls that come from me

Ansaphone - Pulp

There's been an overwhelming response to this topic so far, so I figured we might change things up a bit for the weekend.


The Weekend (including the days of the weekend, so Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays)

"I took off for a weekend last month
Just to try and recall the whole year.
All of the faces
and all of the places,
wonderin' where they all disappeared.
I didn't ponder the question too long;
I was hungry and went out for a bite.
Ran into a chum
with a bottle of rum,
and we wound up drinkin' all night."

Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes by Jimmy Buffett

It took a lost weekend in a hotel in Amsterdam,
and double pneumonia in a single room,
and the sickest joke was the price of the medicine.
Are you laughing at me now may I please laugh along with you?

This morning I woke up from a deep unquiet sleep
with ashtray clothes and miss lonelyheart`s pen
with which i wrote for you a lovesong in tattoo
upon my palm `twas stolen from me when Jesus took my hand

You see I, I wouldn't say it if i didn't mean it
Drop me and I`ll fall to pieces too easily

And Monday when the foreman calls time,
I already got Friday on my mind"

2016-03-19, 12:02 PM
"I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday I'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love

Saturday wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate"

Ok, so no new replies to the thread for a couple of days now.
That means it's time for a NEW TOPIC™!

I was going to go with a new topic that had to do with Easter, but then I realised that might be a bit restrictive, so instead I thought of something else.

Since the new series of Daredevil was released on Netflix this past week, let's have songs about HEROES.
You can name specific comic book heroes, or list songs that mentions generic heroes, like Tina Turner's "We Don't Need Another Hero".


2016-03-23, 03:04 AM
Every single Sabaton song ever.


"Though nothing, will keep us together
We could steal time,
just for one day
We can be Heroes, for ever and ever
What d'you say?"

David Bowie - Heroes

Kinda poignant.

"Particle Man, Particle Man,
Doing the things a particle can.
What's he like? It's not important,

Or does the water get him instead?
Nobody knows, Particle Man."

"Well uptown got it's hustlers,
The bowery got it's bums,
42nd street got big Jim Walker
He's a pool-shootin' son-of-a-gun.
Yeah he's big and dumb
As a man can come,
But he's stronger than a country hoss,
And when the bad folks all get together at night,
You know they all call big Jim boss,
just because,
And they say:

You don't tug on Superman's cape,
You don't spit into the wind,
You don't pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim. "

Your wholesale price is much too high to pay
Bargain basement atmosphere is no way to sell love
And I can’t be your superman above.

Go find a leading man who wants to play
But I can’t be your hero today."

And he's swinging all over town!

And he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life"

I am iron man
Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he alive or dead?
Has he thoughts within his head?

Why should we even care?

"You Can Hide beneath your covers and study your pain,
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain,
Waste your summers prayin' in vain
For a savior to rise from these streets.

All the redemption I could offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood,
With a chance to make it good somehow
Tell me what else can we do now...?"

There's got to be something better than this,
I need you, but I hate to see you this way,
If I was Superman then we'd fly away.

I'd really like to change the world,
And save it from the mess it's in,

Okay, then. Since no one took the opporchancity to post a topic, I guess I'll do it.
So, it's now time for a NEW TOPIC!™

I really can't think of anything interesting for a topic this week, so let's go for something plain and simple.
This week's topic is: CLOTHING
Shirts, socks, shoes, hats, trousers. If people wear it, it's fair game.
*Disclaimer: Meat does NOT count, just because Lady Gaga decided to wear a meat dress to some awards show.
*Also, Jessica Simpson's 'These Boots Are Made For Walking' isn't allowed, cause it was terrible.


2016-03-31, 04:10 AM
How about the original These Boots Are Made For Walking. You know, Nancy Sinatra and all that.

Instead, a(nother) classic:

"Do anything that you want to do
But uh-oh, honey
Lay off of my shoes
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything
But stay off of my blue suede shoes"

Carl Perkins - Blue Suede Shoes

2016-03-31, 05:00 AM
It's so lonesome, all this happenstance
If you asked me, yes, I'd like to dance
Just show me a glove-covered hand
A perfumed dress is more than I can stand
And you approach me with your hollow heart in hand
And you tell me:
"It's not civilized
It's not fair to me
The blues, the grays, the olive greens
All take you far away from me
The girls in their summer dresses see
Though you don't notice they all look back at me
Is this on purpose?"

Oh no, no, no…

I thought I was pretty clear that it was only the Jessica Simpson version that wasn't allowed. :smalltongue:

"So 1, 2, 3, take my hand and come with me
because you look so fine and i really wanna make you mine.

I say you look so fine that I really wanna make you mine.

Oh, 4,5,6 c'mon and get your kicks
now you dont need that money when you look like that, do ya honey.

Big black boots, long brown hair,
she's so sweet with her get back stare.

Well I could see,
you home with me,
but you were with another man, yea!

One, two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the locker she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more"

"I had a BBQ stain on my white T-shirt
She was killing me in that mini-skirt
Skipping rocks on the river by the railroad tracks
She had a suntan line and red lipstick
I worked so hard for that first kiss
And a heart don't forget something like that."

Too sexy for my shirt

Michael Rennie was ill
The Day the Earth Stood Still
But he told us where we stand
And Flash Gordon was there
In silver underwear
Claude Rains was The Invisible Man
Then something went wrong
For Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace
It Came From Outer Space
And this is how the message ran...

- Rocky Horror

I study nuclear science, I love my classes
I got a crazy teacher who wears dark glasses
Things are going great, and they're only getting better
I'm doing all right, getting good grades
The future's so bright I gotta wear shades

Get down
On the ground
Don't move, make a sound
No more
No control
You do what you're told
Stand up
Sit back down
Your lies

Times up
Close your eyes

Listen to the sound of my big black boots

Air cushioned soles
I bought them on the Portobello Road on a Saturday
I stop and stare awhile
A common pastime when conversation goes astray

And don't think I'm walking out of this
She don't mind
Whatever I say, whatever I say
I don't really want to change a thing
I want to stay this way forever

Blue, blue jeans I wear them every day
There's no particular reason to change
My thoughts are getting banal, I can't help it
But I won't pull out hair another day

"He's a what? He's a what?
He's a newspaper man
And he gets his best ideas from a newspaper stand;
From his boots to his pants
To his comments and his rants
He knows that any little article will do.

Though he expresses some confusion 'bout his part in the plan
And he can't understand
That he's not in command,
The decisions underwritten by the cash in his hand
Bought a sweater for his weimaraner too."

I feel your pain; any idea how many country songs mention "boots" ?

"She'll start by kicking out of her shoes
Lose an earring in her drink

Facing the Lions with you at my side anymore

I like my booties real slender and tender,
And if I see a big bootie, I'll put it in the blender
Don't want a rear fender.

You grew too tall,
You could look down on the Taj Mahal
And you don't weigh anything at all
No, you don't look right.

You don't look right,
You're skin and bones,
Dining on a diet of sticks and stones,
Another soldier in an army of drones
And you don't look right.

I don't know what to think when you look at your face,
Searching for humanity and finding no trace;
I think you're a member of an alien race
Who's come to enslave us from outer space
Along with Robyn and Roxette and Ace of Base."

And it's been so wrong, right now, so wrong

Naked, my thoughts are creeping
Too late, the show has begun
And it's been so long, that I can't confess
And it's been so wrong, right now, so wrong

Is it all as it seems, so unresolved, so unredeemed
If I remain, how will I know?

And it's been so wrong, right now, so wrong

This week's topic will be: SOUND

Slightly embarrassed that this was the first song, after Sound of Silence, that I thought of when thnking about this topic. Anyway.. Here goes.
"It's the sound of the underground
The beat of the drum goes round and round

Peace will arise
And tear us apart
And make us meaningless again."

Different sort of space*, but:

"A white blank page
And a swelling rage, rage!

Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once

We’ll explore

A comet ride of fantasy
To a place where dreams are fast and free
With new friends and new things to see
We’ll spin you through the galaxy

On the Great Space Coaster

Off we go

Get on board, step inside
Soarin’ on a magic ride
Roarin’ towards the other side
Where only rainbows hide

Sneaking it in before the inevitable topic change, 3-post rule be danged:

"Once a man was determined to get into
The program for astronauts and go to the moon.

Finally he was in space and saw the planet;
Fear struck him and he threw up inside his helmet.

Then he wondered if he should start to take it easy.
Overachiever might be putting it mildly!"

"But he left all of his royalties
To Spooner, his old hound
Growin' old on steak and bacon
In a doghouse, ten feet 'round

And everybody wonders
Did he really lose his mind?
No, he was just a poet who lived before his time
He was just a poet who lived before his time."

Got a nose that can smell a two day trail
He's a four legged tracking machine
You can consider yourself mighty lucky
To get past the gators and the quicksand beds
But all these years that I've been here
Ain't nobody got past Red

And the warden sang
'Come on somebody

And lately I'm thinking I might take his advice
'Cause he sees through the fence and he thinks I'm free;
Well my brain and his chain look the same to me.

All alone in a cage with a headrest,
There's a thing I should get off of my chest
'Cause I want to wear the path that's true,
And I want to wear the path with you."

Help! Not just anybody
Help! You know I need someone, help!

But now these days are gone, I'm not so self-assured
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors

And I do appreciate you being 'round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me"

Place your attention entirely on my voice and try to ignore all the others. It is important to be able to focus on a single source of information, while blocking out all the other things that are competing for your attention.

(voice in the middle)
Place your attention of all of the different voices simultaneously. In the past having just one attention was sufficient. But today you must be able to focus your attention on several things at once.

(voice on the right)
Place your attention on one of the other voices during this section. Stop listening to my voice now and move onto one of the other voices before it is too late. If you are still listening to my voice this means that you have poor control of your attention.

* Squeeee! I think I just had a topic-gasm!*

"As the son of a son of a sailor,
I went out on the sea for adventure,
Expanding the view of the captain and crew,
Like a man just released from indenture.

As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man,
I have chalked up many a mile,
Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks,
And I learned much from both of their styles.

Son of a son, son of a son,
Son of a son of a sailor,
Son of a gun, load the last ton,
One step ahead of the jailer..."

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darlin' it's better
Down where it's wetter

Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun, they slave away
While we devotin'

Under the sea

My Bonnie lies over the ocean

"Scanning at the blue-banded headlands,
White flurry scudded, a dark silhouette
Flashes by in the wet, it is glistening flesh
In the deep marine, in the deep marine.
There is room for make-believe out in the ocean,
There is room for make-believe out on the land
In the wet, in the dream, if it's flashing then seen
In the deep marine, in the deep marine."

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me

And left this morning from the bell in gardiner's Bay

Too proud to leave, I worked my fingers to the bone

And I go where the ocean is de~eep,
There are giants out there I'm the canyons
And a good captain can't fall asleep. "

Run from this town with empty arms
Find all your homes, and I'd burn them down
Start all the wars that we wanted to see
And I'd watch them all go by in the cavalcade

Was told where you hide from the short wave
Was sent in the night, in the cold

You're like the ocean, you're like the innocent
What's in your empty eyes?

Deciphered your lines from the short wave
It said "Kill all the swine, young and old"

And the drinks they're cold and the reggae's hot,

You got worries you can drop them in the blue ocean,
But you gotta get away to where the boat leaves from!"

Huh, sort of shocked nobody's gone here yet:

"We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed
In an octopus's garden near a cave

We would sing and dance around
Because we know we can't be found
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus's garden in the shade

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy for every girl and boy
Knowing they're happy and they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)"

Sailing a reach
Before a followin' sea,

But on a midnight watch I realized
Why twice you ran away!"

See my destination there tonight"

If I were King of the Forest, Not queen, not duke, not prince.
My regal robes of the forest, would be satin, not cotton, not chintz.
I'd command each thing, be it fish or fowl.
With a woof and a woof and a royal growl - woof.
As I'd click my heel, all the trees would kneel.
And the mountains bow and the bulls kowtow.
And the sparrow would take wing - If I - If I - were King!
Each rabbit would show respect to me.
The chipmunks genuflect to me.
Though my tail would lash, I would show compash
For every underling!
'f I - 'f I - were King!

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
Once you're gone there was never
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

- Coldplay, Viva La Vida
Of the two of their songs that I know, I love this one and absolutely despise the other one. This one sounds like a perfect anthem for D&D, but they completely dropped the ball in that neither of the music videos they made for it have anything to do with D&D.

I see you've met my, faithful, handyman
He's just a little brought down
'Cause when you knocked
He thought you were the candyman
Don't get strung out
By the way I look
Don't judge a book by its cover
I'm not much of a man
By the light of day
But by night I'm one hell of a lover
I'm just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania

I heard this song on the radio once. It might be all I have to contribute to this topic.

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Coca cola
C-O-L-A cola.

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance.
I asked her name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
L-O-L-A Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Well, I'm not the world's most physical guy,
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walk like a woman and talk like a man
Oh my Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Well, we drank champagne and danced all night,
Under electric candlelight,
She picked me up and sat me on her knee,
And said, "Little boy won't you come home with me?"

Well, I'm not the world's most passionate guy,
But when I looked in her eyes,
Well I almost fell for my Lola,
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

Lola lo lo lo lo Lola lo lo lo lo Lola

I pushed her away. I walked to the door.
I fell to the floor. I got down on my knees.
I looked at her, and she at me.

Well that's the way that I want it to stay.
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola.
Lo lo lo lo Lola.

Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls.
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world,
Except for Lola. Lo lo lo lo Lola.

Well I left home just a week before,
And I've never ever kissed a woman before,
But Lola smiled and took me by the hand,
And said, "Little boy, gonna make you a man."

Well I'm not the world's most masculine man,
But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man,
And so is Lola.
Lo lo lo lo Lola. Lo lo lo lo Lola.

Lola lo lo lo lo Lola. Lola lo lo lo lo Lola!

"We've got a minefield of crippled affection
all for the borrowed mirror connection
that's why I'm leaving the spoken detention
and I romanced some **** so that I could confess that

I get world sick every time I take a stand
I get world sick
my love is for my man

We've got ladies born into dead ends
men with the maybes
looking for endings

And I get world sick every time I take a stand
I get world sick
my love is for my man

I'm sick of the self-loved loser who blessed me
the exit that rules the ruling of what will be
and all the destroyers who've never worn dresses
they live for the older while I confess this

I get world sick every time I take a stand
I get world sick
my love is for my man"

Pex: you took “gay apparel” and I thought “noooo…” but to follow it with “ sweet transvestite”, you get synergy points!

I heard this song on the radio once. It might be all I have to contribute to this topic.
That’s all you have to contribute; you chose my favorite !

Ok, I'll save some easy ones & go with an obscure Buffett tune:

“The Krewe of the Crossbones
Parades into the midnight sun
They march through the fire
And come out beating homemade drums
While the French Quarter Queens
In their high-heeled drag disguise
Sing 'Over the Rainbow'
'Til Judy Garland quivers and sighs”

This is for my brother, who offered up another song for the topic (to be clear, he's not gay or anything like that to my knowledge, but if he was gay...) :

If you were gay,
That would be okay,
I mean 'cause, hey
I'd like you anyway

Because you see
if it were me
I would feel free to say
that I was gay
(But I'm not gay)

If you were queer,
I'd still be here
year after year
because you're dear to me,

And I know that you
Would accept me too
If I told you today,
'hey, guess what, I'm gay!'
(But I'm not gay)

I'm happy
just being with you,
So what should it matter to me
what you do in bed with guys?

If you were gay,
I'd shout hooray
And here I'd stay,
But I wouldn't get in your way,

You can count on me
to always be
beside you every day
To tell you it's okay,
you were just born that way
And, as they say it's in your D.N.A,
if you were gay.

I'll put away the country until next turn since no one took this one:

"Happy ever after in the market place,
Molly lets the children lend a hand,
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face,
And in the evening she still sings it with the band!

Yeah, ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah!
La la how the life goes on,

Since it's a new week, and a new month and no one has posted for a few days, i think it might be time for a NEW TOPIC!™

Today is the 4th of July, and since I just returned from a trip to the US late last week, I figured that the topic of this week will be:

Songs about the US, mentioning the US. Simple enough.

A little country music?

"Now this nation that I love has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flying in from somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly through our big, black eye
Man, we lit up your world like the 4th of July!

Hey, Uncle Sam put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty started shaking her fist
And the eagle will fly and it's gonna be hell
When you hear mother freedom start ringing her bell
And it'll feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Oh, brought to you courtesy of the red, white and blue!

Oh, justice will be served and the battle will rage
This big dog will fight when you rattle his cage
You'll be sorry that you messed with the US of A
'Cause we'll put a boot in your ass, it's the American way!"

For purple mountains majesties above the fruited plain
America, America, God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above
From the mountains to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home

. . . The atom bomb fell just the other day,
The H-Bomb fell in the very same way;

The cat came back, we thought he was a goner
But the cat came back; it just couldn't stay away.
Away, away, yea, yea, yea

I live in America, help me out,

Always the population growing

I like to be in America!
O.K. by me in America!
Ev'rything free in America
For a small fee in America!

Some fellows when they lose their hair, they fret.
I've not started to worry yet.
I used to have a lovely mop.
Now I've got none on the top.
You'd think with a cranium so bald, catch a dreadful cough.
I sometimes have a job to find out where my face leaves off.
My parting's wide and so am I.
Smack my old bald head and cry:
Hair! Hair! Hair! I've got none on my noddle.
I don't care, as down the streets I toddle.
All the people say, "He's a good old thoroughbred."
I never give a knock. I'm a jolly old ****.
I'm proud of my old bald head.

I want a feast. I want a bean feast
Cream buns and doughnuts and fruitcake with no nuts so good you could go nuts.
No, now!

I want a ball. I want a party. Pink macaroons and a million balloons and performing baboons. Give it to me now.
I want the world, I want the whole world. I want to lock it all up in my pocket. It's my bar of chocolate
Give it to me now!

I want today. I want tomorrow. I want to wear them like braids in my hair and I don't want to share 'em'

I want a party with roomfuls of laughter. Ten thousand tons of ice cream. And if I don't get the things I am after
I'm going to scream!

I want the works, I want the whole works! Presents and prizes and sweets and surprises in all shapes and sizes, And now!

I don't care how I want it now!
I don't care how I want it now!

Folks, here's a story 'bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a red-hot hoochie-coocher
She was the roughest, toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale

Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi (hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi)
Whoa-a-a-a-ah (whoa-a-a-a-ah)
Hee-dee-hee-dee-hee-dee-hee (hee-dee-hee-dee-hee-dee-hee)
He-e-e-e-e-e-e-y (he-e-e-e-e-e-e-y)

She messed around with a bloke named Smokey
She loved him though was cokey
He took her down to Chinatown
And he showed her how to kick the gong around

Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi (hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi)
Whoa-a-a-a-ah (whoa-a-a-a-ah)
He-e-e-e-e-e-e-y (he-e-e-e-e-e-e-y)
Oh-oh-oh-oh (oh-oh-oh-oh)

She had a dream about the King of Sweden
He gave her things that she was needin'
He gave her a home built of gold and steel
A diamond car with a p-la-ti-num wheel

Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi (hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi)
Ho-dee-ho-dee-ho-dee ho (ho-dee-ho-dee-ho-dee ho)
Skip-de-diddly-skip-de-diddly-diddly-oh (skip-de-diddly-skip-de-diddly-diddly-oh)
Bour'rrigy-bour'rrigy-bour'rrigy-oh (bour'rrigy-bour'rrigy-bour'rrigy-oh)

He gave her his townhouse and his racing horses
Each meal she ate was a dozen courses
She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes
She sat around and counted them all a million times

Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi (hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi)
Whoa-a-a-a-ah (whoa-a-a-a-ah)
He-e-e-e-e-e-e-y (he-e-e-e-e-e-e-y)
