“Someone Saved My Life Tonight” (Elton John)

When I think of those East End lights, muggy nights
Curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima Donna Lord you really should have been there
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it’s one more beer and I don’t hear you anymore
We’ve all gone crazy lately
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor

And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn’t you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye

Never realised the passing hours of evening showers
Slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I’m strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating Queen
It’s four o’clock in the morning
Damn it, listen to me good
I’m sleeping with myself tonight
Saved in time, thank God my music’s still alive

And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn’t you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye

And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
Paying your H.P. demands forever
Coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight
So save your strength and run the field you play alone

An’ someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn’t you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye

Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight…

“When the Levee Breaks” (Led Zeppelin)

If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break
If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break
When The Levee Breaks I’ll have no place to stay. 

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home, 
Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well.

“3rd Planet” (Modest Mouse)

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
Ive got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over
My boss just quit the job says hes goin’ out to find blind
Spots and hell do it

The 3rd planet is sure that theyre being watched by an
Eye in the sky that cant be stopped
When you get to the promise land
You’re gonna shake that yes hand

Your heart felt good it was drippin’ pitch and made of wood
And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me
Well outside naked, shiverin’ looking blue
From the cold sunlight thats reflected off the moon
Baby come, angels fly around you reminding you we used
To be three and not just two

And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end
Thats how the world began
Thats how the world will end

Well a 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
Water, didnt know then was it a son was it a daughter
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies
And another had been found another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the Atlantic and how

And the Universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were
The Universe is shaped exactly like the Earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were

And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end
Thats how the world began
Thats how the world will end

Your heart felt good it was drippin’ pitch and made of wood
And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me
Well outside naked, shiverin’ looking blue
From the cold sunlight thats reflected off the moon
Baby come, angels fly around you reminding you we used
To be three and not just two

And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end

Well a 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
Water, didnt know then was it a son was it a daughter
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies and
Another had been found another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the Atlantic and how

And the universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth if you go
Straight long enough youll end up where you were

And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end
And thats how the world began
And thats how the world will end

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
Ive got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over

“Down in Mexico” (The Coasters)

Down in Mexicali
There’s a crazy little place that I know
Where the drinks are hotter than the chili sauce
And the boss is a cat named Joe

He wears a red bandanna, plays a cool piano
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash and a black mustache
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico

Well, the first time that I saw him
He was sittin’ on a piano stool
I said “Tell me, man, when does the fun begin?”
He just winked his eye and said, “Man, be cool”

He wears a red bandanna, plays a cool piano
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash and a black mustache
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico

In Mexico
All of a sudden in walks a chick
In Mexico
Joe starts playing on a Latin kick

In Mexico
Around her waist she wore three fishnets
In Mexico
She started dancin’ with the castanets

In Mexico
I didn’t know just what to expect
In Mexico
She threw her arms around my neck

In Mexico
We started dancin’ all around the floor
And then she did a dance I never saw before

So if you’re south of the border
I mean down in the Mexico
And you wanna get straight, man, don’t hesitate
Just look up a cat named Joe

He wears a red bandanna, plays a cool piano
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico
He wears a purple sash, and a black mustache
In a honky-tonk, down in Mexico

Hey, como est usted senorita
Come with me to Mexico City
South of the border, that is
In Mexico, yeah in Mexico

You can get your kicks in Mexico
Ah we can watch the bull fights together
Come with me, baby, come with me
Come with me, crazy, yeah

Yes, I TOTALLY watched Death Proof last night. Love that movie.

“Parklife” (blur)

Confidence is a preference for the habitual voyeur
Of what is known as
(Parklife)
And morning soup can be avoided
If you take a route straight through what is known as
(Parklife)

John’s got brewers droop he gets intimidated
By the dirty pigeons, they love a bit of him
(Parklife)
Who’s that gut lord marching?
You should cut down on your porklife mate, get some exercise

All the people
So many people
They all go hand in hand
Hand in hand through their parklife
Know what I mean?

I get up when I want except on Wednesdays
When I get rudely awakened by the dustmen
(Parklife)
I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea
And I think about leaving the house
(Parklife)

I feed the pigeons I sometimes feed the sparrows too
It gives me a sense of enormous well-being
(Parklife)
And then I’m happy for the rest of the day safe in the knowledge
There will always be a bit of my heart devoted to it

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand in hand
Hand in hand through their parklife

Parklife
(Parklife)
Parklife
(Parklife)

It’s got nothing to do with
Vorsprung durch Technik you know
(Parklife)
And it’s not about you joggers
Who go round and round and round
(Parklife)

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand in hand
Hand in hand through their parklife

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand in hand
Hand in hand through their parklife

“I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive” (Hank Williams)

Now you’re lookin’ at a man that’s gettin’ kind-a mad
I had lots of luck but it’s all been bad
No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

My fishin’ pole’s broke the creek is full of sand
My woman run away with another man

No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

A distant uncle passed away and left me quite a batch
And I was living high until that fatal day
A lawyer proved I wasn’t born
I was only hatched

Every thing’s against me and it’s got me down
If I jumped in the river I would probably drown

No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

These shabby shoes I’m wearin’ all the time
Is full of holes and nails
And brother if I stepped on a worn out dime
I bet a nickel I could tell you if it was heads or tails

I’m not gonna worry wrinkles in my brow
‘Cause nothin’s ever gonna be alright nohow

No matter how I struggle and strive
I’ll never get out of this world alive

And a goodbye to you, 2014…

“Song 2” (blur)

I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasn’t easy
But nothing is, no
Woo Hoo

When I feel heavy metal
Woo Hoo!
And I’m pins and I’m needles
Woo Hoo!
Well I lie and I’m easy

All of the time
But I’m never sure
Why I need you
Pleased to meet you

I got my head done
When I was young
It’s not my problem
It’s not my problem
Woo Hoo!

When I feel heavy metal
Woo Hoo!
And I’m pins and I’m needles
Woo Hoo!
Well I lie and I’m easy

All of the time
But I’m never sure
Why I need you
Pleased to meet you

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh yeah…

“Slow Hands” (Interpol)

Yeah but nobody searches
Nobody cares somehow
When the loving that you’ve wasted
Comes raining from a hapless cloud
And I might stop and look upon your face
Disappear in the sweet, sweet gaze
See the living that surrounds me
Dissipate in a violet place

Can’t you see what you’ve done to my heart
And soul?
This is a wasteland now

We spies
We slow hands
Put the weights around yourself
We spies
Oh yeah we slow hands
You put the weights all around yourself
now

I submit my incentive is romance
I watched the pole dance of the stars
We rejoice because the hurting is so painless
From the distance of passing cars
But I am married to your charms & grace

I just go crazy like the good old days
You make me want to pick up a guitar
And celebrate the myriad ways that I love you

Can you see what you’ve done to my heart
And soul?
This is a wasteland now

We spies
Yeah we slow hands
You put the weights around yourself
We spies
Oh, yeah we slow hands
Killer, for hire you know not yourself

We spies
We slow hands
You put the weights all around yourself
We spies
Oh yeah we slow hands
We retire like nobody else
We spies
Intimate slow hands killer
For hire you know not yourself
We spies
Intimate slow hands
You let the face slap around herself

“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” (Sinatra)

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yule-tide gay
From now on, our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

God, I love Christmastime…

“Float On” (Modest Mouse)

I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well, he just drove off, sometimes life’s okay
I ran my mouth off a bit too much, oh, what did I say?
Well, you just laughed it off, it was all okay

And we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on anyway, well

A fake Jamaican took every last dime with a scam
It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes, don’t you worry even when it lands
Good news will work it’s way to all them plans
We both got fired on exactly the same day
Well, we’ll float on, good news is on the way

And we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on, alright…
