I heard you on the wireless back in fifty two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through
Oh, a, oh

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine on new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see
Oh, a, oh
I met your children
Oh a oh
What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Pictures came and broke your heart
Oh, a, a, a, oh

 was making my way through the wasteland
The road into town passes through
I was changing the radio stations
With my mind on you
Oh your friends call you "Lily Paloma"
But that's not the way that you are
It's too much of a gentle misnomer
For a shooting star
But you and me baby
I saw you there
Straight away I knew
There's really no hiding
I'll tell you right now
What we're gonna do
We'll go collecting the days
Putting the moments away
You're on my mind like a
Song on the Radio

Days I'll remember all my life,
Days when you can't see wrong from right.
You took my life,
But then I knew that very soon you'd leave me,
But it's all right,
Now I'm not frightened of this world, believe me.
Days.

Thank you for the days,
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me.
I'm thinking of the days,
I wont forget a single day, believe me.

I bless the light,
I bless the light that shines on you believe me.
And though you're gone,
Youre with me every single day, believe me.
Days.

Sometimes I get to feelin'
I was back in the old days, long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect, you know?
The days were endless, we were crazy, we were young
The sun was always shinin', we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately, I just don't know
The rest of my life's been, just a show
Those are the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look and I find I still love you

You can't turn back the clock, you can't turn back the tide
Ain't that a shame?
Ooh, I'd like to go back one time on a roller coaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and thinkin' on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately, I just don't know
Better sit back and go, with the flow

These are the days of our lives
They've flown in the swiftness of time

I don't know why I did the things I did
I don't know why I said the things I said
Pride's like a knife it can cut deep inside
Words are like weapons they wound sometimes

I didn't really mean to hurt you
I didn't wanna see you go
I know I made you cry, but baby

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that've hurt you
And you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do

Holding back the years
Thinking of the fear I've had so long
When somebody hears
Listen to the fear that's gone
Strangled by the wishes of pater
Hoping for the arms of mater
Get to me the sooner or later

Holding back the tears
Chance for me to escape from all I know
Holding back the tears
'Cause nothing here has grown

I've wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years
Nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could, yeah
I'll keep holding on

I think I saw you in an ice cream parlor
drinking milk shakes cold and long
smiling and waving and looking so fine
Don't think you knew you were in this song
And it was cold and it rained
so I felt like an actor
And I thought of ma
and I wanted to get back there
Your face
your race
the way that you talk
I kiss you
you're beautiful
I want you to walk
We've got five years
stuck on my eyes
Five years
What a surprise

The first time, ever i saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars
Were the gifts you gave
To the dark, and the endless skies
My love
To the dark, and the endless skies

My love

Utterly beautiful song.


Anyway



Taking stock of what I have and what I haven't
What do I find?
The things I've have will keep me satisfied.
Checking up on what I have and what I haven't
What do I find?
A healthy balance on the credit side.

Got no diamonds, got no pearls,
Still I think I'm a lucky girl,
I've got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

Got no mansion, got no yacht,
Still I'm happy with what I've got
I've got the sun in the morning and the moon at night

I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm drivin' in my car, and the man come on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more about some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I can't get no, oh, no, no, no, hey, hey, hey
That's what I say

I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

Each day through my window
I watch her as she passes by
I say to myself
You're such a lucky guy
To have a girl like her
Is truly a dream come true
Out of all the fellas in the world
She belongs to you

But it was just my imagination
Runnin' away with me-once again
Seems it was just my imagination
Runnin' away with me

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You, you may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one

Dreamer, you know you are a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said dreamer, you're nothing but a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said "far out, what a day, a year, a life it is!"
You know, well you know, you had it comin' to you
Now, there's not a lot I can do

Dreamer, you stupid little dreamer
So now you put your head in your hands, oh no

I said, "far out, what a day, a year, a life it is!"
You know, well you know, you had it comin' to you
Now, there's not a lot I can do

Work it out someday
Oh ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma

Okay, don't get excited man, it's 'cause I'm short, I know
Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings
The six-o'clock alarm would never ring
But six rings and I rise
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes
The shaving razor's cold and it stings

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh, what can it mean to a
Daydream believer and a
Homecoming queen?

A small Jean Genie snuck off to the city
Strung out on lasers and slash back plazas
And ate all your razors while pullin' the waiters
Talking bout Monroe and walkin' on snow white
New York's a go-go and everything tastes right
Poor little Greene

Ohh
Hoo, ooo, ooo
Give up now

Jean Genie lives on his back
The Jean Genie loves chimney stacks
He's outrageous
(Jean Genie)
He screams and he bawls
Jean Genie, let yourself go
Ooo, oww

You got it on the side
A little one night thing
I've bought it over and it's time that
I'll forgive youWell, I'm not letting go
But don't forget I know
You made your bed and she was in it
No no no

What's she gonna look like with a chimney on her
What's she gonna look like with a chimney on her

Bed's too big without you
Cold wind blows right through that open door
I can't sleep with your memory
Dreaming dreams of what used to be

When she left I was cold inside
That look on my face was just pride
No regrets, no love, no tears
Living on my own was the least of my fears

Bed's too big without you
The bed's too big without you
The bed's too big
Without you

Nobody to keep me warm
No arms to hold me tight
I'm so unhappy leaving here all alone
So tired of these cold, lonely nights

Now it's you, girl, you that I need
Without you, honey, my heart's about to freeze, oh
It's cold in here (Cold in here)
So cold without your love (Cold without your love)
It's cold in here (Cold in here)
So cold without your love

When you were here with me
It was so warm, so warm in this house
Since you've been gone, girl
My love's been on ice
And only you can thaw it out

Whose sticky hands are these?
And what is this empty place
I could be happily lost but for your face
Here stands an empty house
That used to be full of life
Now it's home for no one and his wife
It's a hovel and
Who can take your place?
I can't face another day
And who will shelter me?
It's cold in here
Cover me

Sometimes you get so lonely
 Sometimes you get nowhere
 I've lived all over the world
 I've left every place

 Please be mine
 Share my life
 Stay with me
 Be my wife

Sometimes it ain't easy
Just to hit this damn guitar
'N sometimes it ain't easy
When you don't know who you are
And honey you don't make it easy
When I don't know where you are
And you knew I just can't take it
If your love is not all mine
And you know I just can't take it
If your love is not all mine
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

Know it sounds funny
But, I just can't stand the pain
Girl, I'm leaving you tomorrow
Seems to me girl
You know I've done all I can
You see I begged, stole, and I borrowed! (yeah)

Ooh that's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning
That's why I'm easy
I'm easy like Sunday morning!

I don't care if Monday's black
 Tuesday, Wednesday heart attack
 Thursday never looking back
 It's Friday I'm in love

 Monday you can hold your head
 Tuesday, Wednesday stay in bed
 Or Thursday watch the walls instead
 It's Friday I'm in love

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

The silicon chip inside her head
Gets switched to overload
And nobody's gonna go to school today
She's going to make them stay at home
And daddy doesn't understand it
He always said she was as good as gold
And he can see no reason
'Cause there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be sure

Oh, oh, oh tell me why

Oh, oh, oh tell me why
I don't like Mondays

I Have a CD of me singing that somewhere - it has a flip Side with this on it - which is the only connection

What a dream I had
 Pressed in organdy
 Clothed in crinoline of smoky burgundy
 Softer than the rain
 I wandered empty streets
 Down past the shop displays
 I heard cathedral bells
 Tripping down the alley ways
 As I walked on

 And when you ran to me
 Your cheeks flushed with the night
 We walked on frosted fields
 Of juniper and lamplight
 I held your hand

 And when I awoke and felt you warm and near
 I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears
 Oh, I love you, girl
 Oh, I love you
