In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the lonesome Pine
In the pale moonshine our hearts entwine
Where you carved your name and I carved mine.

Oh, you - like the mountains are blue
Like the pine - I am lonesome for you
In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
On the trail of the lonesome Pine.

Veins without the blood, legs without the run,
Sex without the come, you got aches without the fun.
I saw it and I knew it, I was right inside it,
You can close your mind but then you just ain't trying, no.

Tap tap on my windowsill and now I'll let you in, yeah.
Cheep cheep from a sparrow says you ain't gonna win, no.

Carve your name into my heart, better than a tattoo or a photograph.
Put your face on a contact lens, only I have been to all the places we've seen and,
Where am I gonna go gonna go it again.

I know what you're doing
When you flip your hair like that
Body language so fluent
I can read your silhouette, oh
And I know what you're thinking
When you bite your lip, I swear
That I'm not overthinking
Got your signals everywhere

So let's lose control and rock the boat
You know you want it, you know you want it
Let's break the rules, a little rendez-vous
You know you want it, you know you want it, baby
I want a piece of your mind

So let me in, let me in now
Don't wanna take up your time
Just have a drink, have a drink
Let's lose control and rock the boat
You know you want it, you know you want it
Let's break the rules, a little rendez-vous
You know you want it
'Cause I just wanna know you better

I sailed away on that little boat to Heaven
And by some chance
Found a bottle in my fist
And there I stood
Nicely, passing out the wiskey
But the passenger were bound to resist

For the people all said
Beware, you're on a Heavenly trip
Beware beware you'll struggle the ship
And the devil will drag you under
By the fancy tie
'round your wicked throat
Sit down!
Sit down!
Sit down!
Sit down you're rocking the boat!

Boat drinks.
Boys in the band ordered boat drinks.
Visitors just scored on the home rink.
Everything seems to be wrong.
Lately, newspaper mentioned cheap airfare.
I've got to fly to Saint Somewhere.
I'm close to bodily harm.

Twenty degress and the hockey game's on.
Nobody cares; they are way too far gone,
screamin' "Boat drinks, "
somethin' to keep them all warm.

This morning,
I shot six holes in my freezer.
I think I got cabin fever.
Somebody sound the alarm.

There ain't no secrets anymore
My name's been hanging on the hook outside your door
Just an old eyesore

I got this feeling, I can't keep it down anymore
Bring me some healing
Saint Cecilia, carry me home to your house of broken bones

Cecilia, you're breaking my heart
You're shaking my confidence daily
Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please to come home
Come on home
Making love in the afternoon with Cecilia
Up in my bedroom (making love)
I got up to wash my face
When I come back to bed someone's taken my place

I've got a good mind to give up living, and go shopping instead
I say, I've got a good mind to give up living, and go shopping instead
To pick up me a tombstone, and be pronounced dead
When I read your letter this morning, that was in your place in bed
I read your letter this morning, that was in your place in bed
That's when I decided, that I would be better off dead
It read, there is no use you looking, or ever hoping to get me back
Oh, there's no use you looking, or ever hoping to get me back
Yes, because it's all over now, and you can bet on that

Well, I used to wake in the morning, get my breakfast in bed
When I'd gotten worried she'd ease my aching head
But now she's here and there, with every man in town
Still trying to take me for that same old clown

Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

misogynistic or what:-

Who's gonna water my plants?
Who's gonna patch my pants?
And who's gonna give me
The chance to feel brand new?

Who's gonna iron my shirts?
Who's gonna kiss where it hurts?
And who needs a man when
He flirts the way I do?

Who, if not you?
Who, if not you?

Lucifer son of the mourning, I'm gonna chase you out of earth!
I'm gonna put on a iron shirt, and chase satan out of earth
I'm gonna put on a iron shirt, and chase the devil out of earth
I'm gonna send him to outa space, to find another race

Do you believe in power with this demon?
Do you think you can resist?

I will be your angel being a demon
I'll be behind you, Ryuk
I was behind Light

Okay, I'll be your devil
I hope you know how to control
I can do many things

I will be the devil to take care of you
Talcual an angel of hell

It's that ole devil called love again
Gets behind me and keeps giving me that shove again
Putting rain in my eyes
Tears in my dreams
And rocks in my heart
It's that sly old sun of a gun again
He keeps telling me that I'm the lucky one again
But I still have that rain
Still have those tears
And those rocks in my heart
S'pose I didn't stay
Ran away
Wouldn't play
The devil
What a potion he would brew?

You are my special angel
Sent from up above
The Lord smiled down on me
And sent an angel to love
You are my special angel
Right from paradise
I know you're an angel
Heaven is in your eyes
The smile from your lips brings the summer sunshine
Tears from your eyes bring the rain
I feel your touch, your warm embrace
And I'm in heaven again

You're a child of sweet sixteen
Never made the big town scene
Always loved to stay at home
Never made it on your own

I see your picture
what do I see
The face of an angel
Staring at me
staring at me

Angel face
angel face
You've got the cutest angel face

Donald Trump sings this in front of the mirror each morning.....

Baby face you've got the cutest little baby face
There's not another who can take your place
Baby face my heart poor heart is thumpin' you sure have started somethin'
Baby face I'm up in heaven when I'm in your fond embrace
Uh well I need a shove because I'm in love with my pretty baby face.

Heaven is closer now today
 The sound is in my ears
 I can't believe the things you say
 They echo what I fear
 Twisting the bones until they snap
 I scream but no one knows
 You say I'm familiar cold to touch
 And then you turn and go

 Feels like heaven...

I grieve for you
you leave me
'so hard to move on
still loving what's gone
they say life carries on
carries on and on and on and on

Another missing person
One of many we assume
The young wear their freedom
Like cheap perfume

(It's useless information)
Returning my call
(To help the situation)
They've nothing at all
You're just another message
On a pay phone wall

Carrie doesn't live here anymore
(Carrie)
Carrie used to room on the second floor
(On the second)
Sorry that she left no forwarding address
That was known to me, Carrie

Wednesday morning at five o'clock
As the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside, she is free

She(we gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (sacrificed most of our lives)
Home (we gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home, after living alone, for so many years (bye bye)

She would never say where she came from
 Yesterday don't matter if it's gone
 While the sun is bright
 Or in the darkest night
 No one knows
 She comes and goes
 Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
 Who could hang a name on you?
 When you change with every new day
 Still I'm gonna miss you...

You live your life in the songs you hear
On the rock and roll radio
And when a young girl doesn't have any friends
That's a really nice place to go
Folks hoping you'd turn out cool
But they had to take you out of school
You're a little touched you know, Angie baby

Lovers appear in your room each night
And they whirl you across the floor
But they always seem to fade away
When your daddy taps on your door
Angie girl, are you all right
Tell the radio good-night
All alone once more, Angie baby

I bought my baby a red radio 
He played it all a go-go a go-go 
He liked to dance to it down in the streets 
He said he loved me but he loved the beat 
But when I switch on I rotate the dial 
I could see it there driving him so wild 
I bought my baby a red radio 
He said he loved me but he had to go 
It just the same old show on my radio 
It just the same old show on my radio

Jenny said, when she was just five years old
There was nothin' happening at all
Every time she puts on the radio
There was nothin' goin' down at all, not at all
Then, one fine mornin', she puts on a New York station
You know, she couldn't believe what she heard at all
She started shakin' to that fine, fine music
You know, her life was saved by rock'n'roll

Despite all the imputations
You know, you could just go out
And dance to a rock'n'roll station
And it was all right, hey baby,
You know, it was all right

...
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

Some of my friends sit around every evening
and they worry about the times ahead
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference
and the promise of an early bed
You either shut up or get cut out;
they don't wanna hear about it.
It's only inches on the reel-to-reel.
And the radio is in the hands of such a lot of fools
tryin' to anaesthetise the way that you feel

Radio is a sound salvation
Radio is cleaning up the nation
They say you better listen to the voice of reason
But they don't give you any choice
'cause they think that it's treason.
So you had better do as you are told.
You better listen to the radio.

Wonderful radio
Marvelous radio
Wonderful radio
Radio, radio...
