    Please put any copied and pasted song lyrics on here please, and not on poetry corner

    (no goths, grebos, emos or dog's on string pasting wads of Sisters of Mercy pretty please though)

    "Thursday's Child"

    All of my life I've tried so hard
    Doing my best with what I had
    Nothing much happened all the same

    Something about me stood apart
    A whisper of hope that seemed to fail
    Maybe I'm born right out of my time
    Breaking my life in two

    [CHORUS]
    Throw me tomorrow
    Now that I've really got a chance
    Throw me tomorrow
    Everything's falling into place
    Throw me tomorrow
    Seeing my past to let it go
    Throw me tomorrow
    Only for you I don't regret
    That I was Thursday's child

    Monday Tuesday Wednesday born I was
    Monday Tuesday Wednesday born I was
    Thursday's child

    Sometimes I cried my heart to sleep
    Shuffling days and lonesome nights
    Sometimes my courage fell to my feet

    Lucky old sun is in my sky
    Nothing prepared me for your smile
    Lighting the darkness of my soul
    Innocence in your arms

    [CHORUS]

    "It's No Game (Part 1)"

    Shiruetto ya kage ga kakumei o miteiru
    Mo tengoku no giyu no kaidan wa nai2

    Silhouettes and shadows
    watch the revolution
    No more free steps to heaven
    It's no game

    Ore genjitsu kara shime dasare
    Nani ga okkote irunoka wakara nai
    Doko ni kyokun wa arunoka
    Hitobito wa yubi o orareteiru
    Konna dokusaisha ni iyashime rareru nowa kanashii

    I am bored from the event
    I really don't understand the situation
    And it's no game

    Documentaries on refugees
    Couples 'gainst the target
    You throw a rock against the road
    And it breaks into pieces
    Draw the blinds on yesterday,
    and it's all so much scarier
    Put a bullet in my brain,
    and it makes all the papers 2

    Nammin no kiroku eiga
    Hyoteki o se ni shita koibito tachi
    Michi ni ishi o nage reba
    Kona gona ni kudake
    Kino ni huta o sureba
    Kyohu wa masu
    Ore no atama ni tama o buchi kome ba
    Shinbun wa kaki tateru

    So where's the moral
    when people have their fingers broken2
    To be insulted by these fascists
    it's so degrading
    And it's no game

    Shut up! Shutu

    "Liars' Bar

    Well sitting in a bar alone
    where no-one knows your name
    is like laying in a graveyard
    wide awake
    You're scared that if you cough or yawn
    you might wake up the dead
    So pretend to read a paper
    or just drink instead

    I'm a stand-up comedian
    but I'd sit down if I could
    The world just seems
    to want folk like me to stand
    And the punch-lines seem to disappear
    like clouds across the sky
    And the laughter could be real
    or could be canned

    Rum by the kettle drum
    Whiskey by the jar
    At Liar's Bar

    Well living with a lying man
    could never really hurt
    But living with a drunk
    well no-one deserves
    And you're looking for your husband
    you're not sure he's still alive
    Don't bother with the cemetery
    he'll be down at liar's dive

    I'm a travelling businessman
    I just stopped in for one drink
    You'll find
    that I'm not like the other men
    Their noses are red
    whilst mine is only pink
    And they didn't choose their drink
    their drink chose them

    Rum by the kettle drum
    Whiskey by the jar
    At Liar's Bar

    And the grave-digger's smiling
    at his reflection in his spade
    He's visiting the seediest
    the shallowest of graves
    The vocal chords of elephants
    and the characters of mice
    They're singing "whisky, whisky"
    so good they named it twice

    Well don't pass buildings with lights on
    if I said that I did I'd have lied
    'Cause what looks like a Chinese restaurant
    may have Chinese New Year inside
    And son all my life I've been searching
    the bars I've been in I forget
    The lights outside ever brighter
    but a light on the inside not yet

    Rum by the kettle drum
    Whiskey by the jar
    At Liar's Bar

    And he's a world-wide traveller
    he's not like me or you
    But he comes in mighty regular
    for one who's passing through
    That one came in his work clothes
    he's missed his last bus home
    He's missed a hell of a lot of buses
    for a man who wants to roam

    If I look rough I am rough
    If I look sad I am
    If I look broke I am broke
    Just a broke down piece of man

    I've turned over enough leaves
    to fill an autumn
    and if I had one final wish
    I'd be your slave for a decade
    if you could take me away from this
    If you took me away from this
    I'd be different you'd see
    'Cause I didn't choose the drink
    a drink just chose me

    Rum by the kettle drum
    Whiskey by the jar
    At Liar's Bar

    Well I'm smoking like a chimney
    And I'm drinking like a fish
    At Liar's Bar

    Artificial Flowers

    Alone in the world was poor little Annie
    As sweet a young child as you'd find
    Her parents had gone to their final reward
    Leaving their baby behind

    Did you hear this poor little child
    was only nine years of age
    When mother and dad went away
    Still she bravely worked
    at the one thing she knew
    To earn a few pennies a day

    She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers
    Flowers for ladies of fashion to wear
    She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers
    Fashioned from Annie's despair

    With papers and shears, with wire and wax
    She made up each tulip and mum
    As snow flakes drifted in to her tenement room
    Her baby little fingers grew numb

    From artificial flowers, those artificial flowers
    Flowers for ladies of high fashion to wear
    She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers
    Made from Annie's despair

    And they found little Annie all covered with ice
    Still clutching her poor frozen shears
    Amidst all the blossoms, she had fashioned by hand
    And watered with all her young tears

    There must be a Heaven where little Annie can play
    In heavenly gardens and bowers
    And instead of halo, she'll wear round her head
    A garland of genuine flowers

    No more artificial flowers, artificial flowers
    Flowers for ladies of society to wear
    Those artificial flowers, artificial flowers
    Fashioned from Annie's
    Fashioned from Annie's despair

    And my all time favourite, sung by Billy Paul, not Elton John

    Your Song

    See Here

    It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
    I'm not one of those who can easily hide
    I don't have much money but boy if I did
    I'd buy a big house where we both could live

    If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
    Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
    I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
    My gift is my song and this one's for you

    And you can tell everybody this is your song
    It may be quite simple but now that it's done
    I hope you don't mind
    I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
    How wonderful life is while you're in the world

    I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
    Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
    But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
    It's for people like you that keep it turned on

    So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
    You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
    Anyway the thing is what I really mean
    Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

    Rammstein - Sehnsucht Lyrics





    La? mich deine Trane reiten
    ubers Kinn nach Afrika
    wieder in den Schoss der Lowin
    wo ich einst zuhause war
    Zwischen deine langen Beinen
    such den Schnee vom letzten Jahr
    doch es ist kein Schnee mehr da

    Lass mich deine Trane reiten
    uber Wolken ohne Gluck
    der grosse Vogel schiebt den Kopf
    sanft in sein Versteck zuruck
    Zwischen deine langen Beinen
    such den Sand vom letzten Jahr
    doch es ist kein Sand mehr da

    Sehnsucht versteckt
    sich wie ein Insekt
    im Schlafe merkst du nicht
    da? es dich sticht
    glucklich werd ich nirgendwo
    der Finger rutscht nach Mexiko
    doch er versinkt im Ozean
    Sehnsucht ist so grausam

    Correcto Mundo Abe (you don't mind me calling you that do you? easier than trying to spell Arbitrary wrong :biggrin:), my all time hero, got every album he ever made, even the ,ahem, not so good ones have their moments in time / to suit your mood. You ever heard Buddha of Suburbia (from a musical, I believe) few good tracks on that.

    You got me there, apart from the skateboard bit. Aren't they into EMO and rubbish rock like RHCP? Maybe now that I'm one year shy of 50 I should be listening to the likes of Elton John and Neil Diamond and Phil Collins and Robbie Will......
