    Simon & Garfunkel - A Simple Desultory Philippic (Or How I Was Robert McNamara'd into Submission)

    I been Norman Mailered, Maxwell Taylored.
    I been John O'Hara'd, McNamara'd.
    I been Rolling Stoned and Beatled till I'm blind.
    I been Ayn Randed, nearly branded
    Communist, 'cause I'm left-handed.
    That's the hand I use, well, never mind!

    I been Phil Spectored, resurrected.
    I been Lou Adlered, Barry Sadlered.
    Well, I paid all the dues I want to pay.
    And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce,
    And all my wealth won't buy me health,
    So I smoke a pint of tea a day.

    I knew a man, his brain was so small,
    He couldn't think of nothing at all.
    He's not the same as you and me.
    He doesn't dig poetry. He's so unhip that
    When you say Dylan, he thinks you're talking about Dylan Thomas,
    Whoever he was.
    The man ain't got no culture,
    But it's alright, ma,
    Everybody must get stoned.

    I been Mick Jaggered, silver daggered.
    Andy Warhol, won't you please come home?
    I been mothered, fathered, aunt and uncled,
    Been Roy Haleed and Art Garfunkeled.
    I just discovered somebody's tapped my phone.

    I dropped my harmonica, Albert.

    Small Faces - Lazy Sunday Afternoon

    A wouldn't it be nice to get on with me neighbours

    They doing me crust in, it's no good at all - ah

    Lazy Sunday afternoon
    I've got no mind to worry
    I close my eyes and drift away-a

    Here we all are sittin' in a rainbow
    Gor blimey hello Mrs. Jones
    How's old Bert's lumbago? He mustn't grumble
    Tweedle dee bite
    I'll sing you a song with no words and no tune
    Tweedle dee bite
    To sing in your party while you souse at the moon - oh yeah

    Lazy Sunday afternoon-a - tweedle dee bite - tweedle dee bite - tweedle dee bite
    I've got no mind to worry - yeah - I've got no mind to worry

    Root-de-doo-de-doo, a-root-de-doot-de doy di
    A-root-de doot de dum, a-ree-de-dee-de-doo dee - doo doo ....
    There's no one to hear me, there's nothing to say
    And no one can stop me from feeling this way - yeah

    Lazy Sunday afternoon
    I've got no mind to worry
    Close my eyes and drift away

    Lazy Sunday afternoon
    I've got no mind to worry
    Close my eyes and drift a-

    today...

    Transplants - some of "haunted cities, and a little bit of "transplants".

    Gangsters and thugs,
    criminals and hoods,
    some of my friends sell records,
    some of my friends sell drugs.


    Also, Marumari.

    Cream - Tale of Brave Ulysses

    You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
    But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

    And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
    And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:
    How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
    For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.

    And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise,
    And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
    And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
    Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.

    The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,
    And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.

    Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell,
    And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands
    With tales of brave Ulysses; how his naked ears were tortured
    By the sirens sweetly singing.

    The tiny purple fishes run lauging through your fingers,
    And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.

    John Lennon - I Found Out

    No!

    I found Out!

    Now that I showed you just what I've been through
    Don't take nobody's word what you can do
    There ain't no Jesus don't come from the sky
    now that I found out I know I can cry
    I found out!

    Some of you sitting there with your cock in your hand
    Don't get you nowhere don't make you a man
    I heard something about my ma and my pa
    They didn't want me so they made me a star
    I found out!

    Old Hare Krishna ain't got nothing on you
    just keep you crazy with nothing to do
    keep you occupied with with pie in the sky
    There ain't no guru who can see through your eyes
    I found out!

    I seen the junkies I've been through it all
    I've seen religons from Jesus to Paul
    don't let them fool you with dope and cocaine
    can't do you no harm feel your own pain
    I found out!

    Traffic - Dear Mr. Fantasy

    Dear Mister Fantasy play us a tune
    Something to make us all happy
    Do anything take us out of this gloom
    Sing a song, play guitar
    Make it snappy
    You are the one who can make us all laugh
    But doing that you break out in tears
    Please don't be sad if it was a straight mind you had
    We wouldn't have known you all these years

    The Animals - It's My Life

    It's a hard world to get a break in
    All the good things have been taken
    But girl there are ways
    To make certain things pay
    Though I'm dressed in these rags
    I'll wear sable some day
    Hear what I say
    I'm gonna ride the serpent
    No more time spent sweatin' rent
    Hear my command
    I'm breakin' loose, it ain't no use
    Holdin' me down, stick around

    And baby, baby
    Remember, remember
    It's my life and I'll do what I want
    It's my mind and I'll think like I want
    Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
    But some day I'll treat you real fine

    There'll be women and their fortunes
    Who just want to mother orphans
    Are you gonna cry
    While I'm squeezin' them dry
    Takin' all I can get, no regrets
    When I, openly lie
    And live on their money
    Believe me honey, that money
    Can you believe, I ain't no saint
    No complaints
    So girl throw out
    Any doubt

    And baby (baby)
    Remember (remember)
    It's my life and I'll do what I want
    It's my mind and I'll think like I want
    Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
    But some day I'll treat you real fine

    (It's my life and I'll do what I want) Don't push me
    (It's my mind and I'll think like I want) It's my life
    (It's my life and I'll do what I want) And I can do what I want
    (It's my mind and I'll think like I want) You can't tell me
    (It's my life and I'll do what I want)

    KLAATU - We're Off You Know
    (John Woloschuk)

    We're off you know to a distant land
    And the only ones allowed to come are those who feel they can
    Go right along with the master plan
    For we're all agreed that all we need is sitting there in your head
    (Is that all? That's all. That's all? That's all.)

    So raise the sails and trim all the sheets
    Set your course and jam all the cleats
    We'll follow the north star to know where we are so
    You sleepyheads get out of bed right now
    Let your fortunes be cast to the wind

    And so it's off we go to some uncharted shore
    'Cause the only kind we're out to find are those worth looking for
    You can tag along should you feel the urge to merge
    'Cause we're all agreed that all we need is Hope and a little courage
    (Is that all? That's all. Ooh hoo hoo)

    So raise the sails and trim all the sheets
    Set your course and jam all the cleats
    We'll follow the North Star to know where we are so
    You sleepyheads get out of bed right now
    Get out the lead full steam ahead smartly now
    For the journey begins
    The journey begins
    Our journey begins come the sun

    Well wouldn't you like to go too ...?

    Jefferson Airplane - Plastic Fantastic Lover

    Her neon mouth with the blinking soft smile
    Nothing but an electric sign
    You could say she has an individual style
    She's part of a colorful time

    Secrecy of lady-chrome-covered clothes
    You wear cause you have no other
    But I suppose no one knows
    You're my plastic fantastic lover

    Her rattlin' cough never shuts off
    Is nothin' but a used machine
    Her aluminum finish, slightly diminished
    Is the best I ever have seen

    Cosmetic baby plugged into me
    Never ever find another
    I realize no one's wise
    To my plastic fantastic lover

    The electrical dust is starting to rust
    Her trapezoid thermometer taste
    All the red tape is mechanical rape
    Of the TV program waste

    Data control and IBM
    Science is mankind's brother
    But all I see is drainin' me
    On my plastic fantastic lover

    River of Tears - Eric Clapton

    It's three miles to the river
    That would carry me away,
    And two miles to the dusty street
    That I saw you on today.

    It's four miles to my lonely room
    Where I will hide my face,
    And about half a mile to the downtown bar
    That I ran from in disgrace.

    Lord, how long have I got to keep on running,
    Seven hours, seven days or seven years?
    All I know is, since you've been gone
    I feel like I'm drowning in a river,
    Drowning in a river of tears.
    Drowning in a river.
    Feel like I'm drowning,
    Drowning in a river.

    In three more days, I'll leave this town
    And disappear without a trace.
    A year from now, maybe settle down
    Where no one knows my face.

    I wish that I could hold you
    One more time to ease the pain,
    But my time's run out and I got to go,
    Got to run away again.

    Still I catch myself thinking,
    One day I'll find my way back here.
    You'll save me from drowning,
    Drowning in a river,
    Drowning in a river of tears.
    Drowning in a river.
    Feels like I'm drowning,
    Drowning in the river.
    Lord, how long must this go on?

    Drowning in a river,
    Drowning in a river of tears.

    I Will Survive Lyrics

    by Gloria Gaynor


    First I was afraid
    I was petrified
    Kept thinking I could never live
    without you by my side
    But I spent so many nights
    thinking how you did me wrong
    I grew strong
    I learned how to carry on
    and so you're back
    from outer space
    I just walked in to find you here
    with that sad look upon your face
    I should have changed my stupid lock
    I should have made you leave your key
    If I had known for just one second
    you'd be back to bother me

    Go on now go walk out the door
    just turn around now
    'cause you're not welcome anymore
    weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
    you think I'd crumble
    you think I'd lay down and die
    Oh no, not I
    I will survive
    as long as i know how to love
    I know I will stay alive
    I've got all my life to live
    I've got all my love to give
    and I'll survive
    I will survive

    It took all the strength I had
    not to fall apart
    kept trying hard to mend
    the pieces of my broken heart
    and I spent oh so many nights
    just feeling sorry for myself
    I used to cry
    Now I hold my head up high
    and you see me
    somebody new
    I'm not that chained up little person
    still in love with you
    and so you felt like dropping in
    and just expect me to be free
    now I'm saving all my loving
    for someone who's loving me

    "Man Of The Hour"

    Tidal waves don't beg forgiveness
    Crashed and on their way
    Father he enjoyed collisions; others walked away
    A snowflake falls in may.
    And the doors are open now as the bells are ringing out
    Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
    Goodbye for now.

    Nature has its own religion; gospel from the land
    Father ruled by long division, young men they pretend
    Old men comprehend.

    And the sky breaks at dawn; shedding light upon this town
    They'll all come around
    Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
    G'bye for now.

    And the road
    The old man paved
    The broken seams along the way
    The rusted signs, left just for me
    He was guiding me, love, his own way
    Now the man of the hour is taking his final bow
    As the curtain comes down
    I feel that this is just g'bye for now

    Grateful Dead - Terrapin Station

    Let my inspiration flow in token rhyme, suggesting rhythm,
    That will not forsake you, till my tale is told and done.
    While the firelight's aglow, strange shadows from the flames will grow,
    Till things we've never seen will seem familiar.

    Shadows of a sailor, forming winds both foul and fair all swarm.
    Down in Carlisle, he loved a lady many years ago.
    Here beside him stands a man, a soldier from the looks of him,
    Who came through many fights, but lost at love.

    While the story teller speaks, a door within the fire creaks;
    Suddenly flies open, and a girl is standing there.
    Eyes alight, with glowing hair, all that fancy paints as fair,
    She takes her fan and throws it, in the lion's den.

    Which of you to gain me, tell, will risk uncertain pains of hell?
    I will not forgive you if you will not take the chance.
    The sailor gave at least a try, the soldier being much too wise,
    Strategy was his strength, and not disaster.

    The sailor, coming out again, the lady fairly leapt at him.
    That's how it stands today. You decide if he was wise.
    The story teller makes no choice. Soon you will not hear his voice.
    His job is to shed light, and not to master.

    Since the end is never told, we pay the teller off in gold,
    In hopes he will come back, but he cannot be bought or sold.

    Terrapin Station

    Inspiration, move me brightly. Light the song with sense and color;
    Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.
    Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last.
    Some rise, some fall, some climb, to get to Terrapin.

    Counting stars by candlelight, all are dim but one is bright;
    The spiral light of Venus, rising first and shining best,
    On, from the northwest corner, of a brand new crescent moon,
    While crickets and cicadas sing, a rare and different tune,
    Terrapin Station.

    In the shadow of the moon, Terrapin Station.
    And I know we'll get there soon, Terrapin Station.
    I can't figure out, Terrapin, if it's the end or beginning, Terrapin,
    But the train's put it's brakes on, Terrapin,
    And the whistle is screaming, TERRAPIN.

    Terrapin Station - At the Siding

    While you were gone, these faces filled with darkness.
    The obvious was hidden. With nothing to believe in,
    The compass always points to Terrapin.

    Sullen wings of fortune beat like rain.
    You're back in Terrapin for good or ill again, for good or ill again.

    Man of the World - Fleetwood Mac

    Shall I tell you about my life
    They say I'm a man of the world
    I've flown across every tide
    And I've seen lots of pretty girls

    I guess I've got everything I need
    I would't ask for more
    And there's no one I'd rather be
    But I just wish that I'd never been born

    break:

    And I need a good woman
    to make me feel like a good man should
    I don't say I'm a good man
    Oh, but I would be if I could

    I could tell you about my life
    And keep you amused I'm sure
    About all the times I've cried
    And how I don't want to be sad anymore
    And how I wish I was in love
