Some guide their life by the wisdom of the songwriter. What is your favorite? I like the message of this one provides:

"The Pretender"

I'm going to rent myself a house
In the shade of the freeway
I'm going to pack my lunch in the morning
And go to work each day
And when the evening rolls around
I'll go on home and lay my body down
And when the morning light comes streaming in
I'll get up and do it again
Amen
Say it again
Amen

I want to know what became of the changes
We waited for love to bring
Were they only the fitful dreams
Of some greater awakening
I've been aware of the time going by
They say in the end it's the wink of an eye
And when the morning light comes streaming in
You'll get up and do it again
Amen

Caught between the longing for love
And the struggle for the legal tender
Where the sirens sing and the church bells ring
And the junk man pounds his fender
Where the veterans dream of the fight
Fast asleep at the traffic light
And the children solemnly wait
For the ice cream vendor
Out into the cool of the evening
Strolls the Pretender
He knows that all his hopes and dreams
Begin and end there

Ah the laughter of the lovers
As they run through the night
Leaving nothing for the others
But to choose off and fight
And tear at the world with all their might
While the ships bearing their dreams
Sail out of sight

I'm going to find myself a girl
Who can show me what laughter means
And we'll fill in the missing colors
In each other's paint-by-number dreams
And then we'll put out dark glasses on
And we'll make love until our strength is gone
And when the morning light comes streaming in
We'll get up and do it again
Get it up again

I'm going to be a happy idiot
And struggle for the legal tender
Where the ads take aim and lay their claim
To the heart and the soul of the spender
And believe in whatever may lie
In those things that money can buy
Thought true love could have been a contender
Are you there?
Say a prayer for the Pretender
Who started out so young and strong
Only to surrender

DirtyLaundry

 

 

"Dirty Laundry"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k21ib_weEM

 

I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something
Something I can use
People love it when you lose
They love dirty laundry

Well, I coulda been an actor
But I wound up here
I just have to look good
I don't have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em all around

We got the bubble headed
Bleached blonde
Comes on at five
She can tell you 'bout the plane crash
With a gleam in her eye
It's interesting when people die
Give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation
Is the head dead yet
You know the boys in the newsroom
Got a running bet
Get the widow on the set
We need dirty laundry

[Instrumental Interlude]

You don't really need to find out
What's going on
You don't really want to know
Just how far it's gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're stiff
Kick 'em all around

(Kick 'em when they're up)
(Kick 'em when they're down)
(Kick 'em when they're up)
(Kick 'em when they're down)

(Kick 'em when they're up)
(Kick 'em when they're down)
(Kick 'em when they're stiff)
(Kick 'em all around)

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers
In everybody's pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do the Innuendo
We can dance and sing
When it's said and done
We haven't told you a thing
We all know that Crap is King
Give us dirty laundry

Prince Wrote This...

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Manic Monday"https://youtu.be/SsmVgoXDq2w

Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin' Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late
'Cause then I guess I just won't get paid
These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it were Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I don't have to run day
It's just another manic Monday

Have to catch an early train
Got to be to work by nine
And if I had an aeroplane
I still couldn't make it on time
'Cause it takes me so long just to figure out what I'm gonna wear
Blame it on the train
But the boss is already there

It's just another manic Monday
Wish it were Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I don't have to run day
It's just another manic Monday

All of the nights
Why did my lover have to pick last night
To get down?
(Last night, last night)
Doesn't it matter
That I have to feed the both of us
Employment's down
He tells me in his bedroom voice
"C'mon honey, let's go make some noise"
Time it goes so fast
(When you're having fun)

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it were Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
I don't have to run day

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
It's just another manic Monday

What A Feeling... Flashdance

https://youtu.be/ILWSp0m9G2U

First, when there's nothing but a slow glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide deep inside your mind
All alone I have cried, silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel, made of stone

Well, I hear the music close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around, take a hold of my heart

What a feeling, being's believin'
I can have it all, now I'm dancing for my life
Take your passion and make it happen
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life

Now, I hear the music, close my eyes feel the rhythm, wrap around take hold of my heart

What a feeling, being's believin'
I can have it all, now I'm dancing for my life
Take your passion and make it happen
Pictures come alive, now I'm dancing through my life
What a feeling

What a feeling
(I am music now)
Being's believin'
(I am rhythm now)
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life

What a feeling
(I can really have it all)
What a feeling
(Pictures come alive when I call)
I can have it all
(I can really have it all)
Have it all
(Pictures come alive when I call)

Call, call, call, call, what a feeling
(I can have it all)
Being's believin'
(Being's believin')
Take your passion, make it happen
(Make it happen)
What a feeling

https://youtu.be/tzsf72lYLo0

I took my love and I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
Till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
And can I sail through the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
Oh oh I don't know, oh I don't know

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I'm getting older too

Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
I'm getting older too
Oh I'm getting older too

Oh, take my love, take it down
Climb a mountain and turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide will bring you down, down
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills

Well maybe the landslide will bring you down
Well well, the landslide will bring you down

NICKS, STEVIE

She'll Leave You With A Smile"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                https://youtu.be/39RSPr493hg?list=RDODHCwsJkElo

At first she's gonna come on strong
Like She'll love you all night long
Like it's going out of style
Then she'll leave you with a smile

Well you can't help but wonder
Why you can't help but love her
But you can't help love her
And all that hurtin' was more than worth it
It's written all over your face

One day you'll pass her on the street
With that guy you used to be
She'll say hello and walk on by
Then she'll leave you with a smile

Well you can't help but wonder
Why you can't help but love her
But you can't help love her
And all that hurtin' was more than worth it
It's written all over your face

At first she's gonna come on strong
Like She'll love you all night long
Like it's going out of style
Then she'll leave you with a smile

Ah, she's gonna love you
She gonna leave you with a smile
Ah, she's gonna love you
She gonna leave you with a smile

This goes out to the Nubies on the blogs...A.1& A..2

 

 

 

 

 

 

https://youtu.be/QtmAHq0TKHI

There's talk on the street; it sounds so familiar
Great expectations, everybody's watching you
People you meet, they all seem to know you
Even your old friends treat you like you're something new

Johnny come lately, the new kid in town
Everybody loves you, so don't let them down

You look in her eyes; the music begins to play
Hopeless romantics, here we go again
But after awhile, you're lookin' the other way
It's those restless hearts that never mend

Johnny come lately, the new kid in town
Will she still love you when you're not around?
There's so many things you should have told her,
but night after night you're willing to hold her,
Just hold her, tears on your shoulder

There's talk on the street, it's there to
Remind you, that it doesn't really matter
which side you're on.
You're walking away and they're talking behind you
They will never forget you 'til somebody new comes along
Where you been lately? There's a new kid in town
Everybody loves him, don't they?
Now he's holding her, and you're still around
Oh, my, my

LOW PLACES...

 

 

 

 

 

https://youtu.be/0e_HtjZS8SQ

"Friends In Low Places"

Blame it all on my roots 
I showed up in boots 
And ruined your black tie affair 
The last one to know 
The last one to show 
I was the last one 
You thought you'd see there 
And I saw the surprise 
And the fear in his eyes 
When I took his glass of champagne 
And I toasted you 
Said, honey, we may be through 
But you'll never hear me complain 

'Cause I've got friends in low places 
Where the whiskey drowns 
And the beer chases my blues away 
And I'll be okay 
I'm not big on social graces 
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis 
Oh, I've got friends in low places 
 
Well, I guess I was wrong 
I just don't belong 
But then, I've been there before 
Everything's all right 
I'll just say goodnight 
And I'll show myself to the door 
Hey, I didn't mean 
To cause a big scene 
Just give me an hour and then 
Well, I'll be as high 
As that ivory tower 
That you're livin' in 

'Cause I've got friends in low places 
Where the whiskey drowns 
And the beer chases my blues away 
And I'll be okay 
I'm not big on social graces 
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis 
Oh, I've got friends in low places 

[3rd Verse:]
I guess I was wrong 
I just don't belong 
But then, I've been there before 
And everything is alright 
I'll just say goodnight 
And I'll show myself to the door 
I didn't mean to cause a big scene 
Just wait 'til I finish this glass 
Then sweet little lady 
I'll head back to the bar 
And you can kiss my a**
 
'Cause I've got friends...

"A Little Too Late...https://youtu.be/nOd2NuHgwew?list=RD-uDxF5q0V9s                            CHEMESTRY!                            

                                  [chorus]

It’s a little too late
I’m a little too gone, 
A little too tired of this hangin’ on
So I’m letting go while I’m still strong enough to
It’s got a little too sad
I’m a little too blue
It’s a little too bad
You were too good to be true
I’m big time over you baby
It’s a little too late

No I don’t want to want to talk about what we can do about us anymore
Only time you and me wastin’ is the time it takes to walk right out that door
Yeah talk about water under the bridge,
You should know by now girl that’s all this is

[chorus]
It’s a little too late,
I’m a little too gone, 
A little too tired of just hangin’ on
I’m letting go while I’m still strong enough to
It’s got a little too sad,
I’m a little too blue
It’s a little too bad
You were too good to be true
I’m big time over you baby
It’s a little too late

There was a time,
this heart of mine,
would take you back every time
don’t you know
It’s been two packs of cigaretts
a sleepless night
a nervous wreck, a day ago.
Now you ain’t got no business coming around
I’m closing up shop
Shuttin’ us down

[chorus]
It’s a little too late,
I’m a little too gone, 
A little too tired of just hangin’ on
I’m letting go while I’m still strong enough to
It’s got a little too sad,
I’m a little too blue
It’s a little too bad
You were too good to be true
I’m big time over you baby
It’s a little too late
I’m big time over you baby,
It’s a little too late

Her hair is Harlow gold

Her lips are sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She got Bette Davis eyes
She'll turn the music on you
You won't have to think twice
She's pure as New York snow
She got Bette Davis eyes

And she'll tease you, she'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious, and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
She got Greta Garbo's standoff sighs, she's got Bette Davis eyes

She'll let you take her home
It whets her appetite
She'll lay you on the throne
She got Bette Davis eyes
She'll take a tumble on you
Roll you like you were dice
Until you come out blue
She's got Bette Davis eyes

She'll expose you, when she snows you
Off your feet with the crumbs she throws you
She's ferocious and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy, she's got Bette Davis eyes

She'll tease you, she'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious, and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy, she's got Bette Davis eyes

She'll tease you
She'll unease you
Just to please you
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll expose you
When she snows you
'Cause she knows you, she's got Bette Davis Eyes

JERRY LEE LEWIS 

"Middle Age Crazy"

 

Today he traded his big 98 Oldsmobile
He got a heck of a deal
On a new Porsche car
He ain't wearing his usual grey business suit
He's got jeans and high boots 
With an embroidered star
An today he's forty years old going on twenty
Don't look for the grey in his hair 
'Cause he ain't got any
He's got a young thing beside him 
That just melts in his hand
He's middle aged crazy 
Trying to prove he still can
He's gotta a woman he's loved for a long long time at home

Ah but the thrill is all gone
When they cut down the lights
They've got a business that they spent a while coming by
Been a long uphill climb 
But now the profits are high
But today he's forty years old going on twenty
And he hears of sordid affairs and he ain't had any
And the young thing beside him 
You know she understands
That he's middle aged crazy 
Trying to prove he still can

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WILLIE NELSON...Phases&Stages...Circles&Cycles...

 

 

 

 

 

                                                             "Bloody Mary Morning"

https://youtu.be/DQWCPbxcA1I

It's a Bloody Mary morning, 
Baby left me without warning 
Sometime in the night 
So I'm flyin' down to Houston 
Forgetting her's the nature of my flight 

As we taxi toward the runway 
With the smog and haze 
Reminding me of how I feel 
Just a country boy who's learnin' 
That the pitfalls of the city 
Are extremely real 

All the night life and the parties 
And temptation and deceit 
The order of the day 
Well it's a Bloody Mary mornin' 
Cause I'm leavin' baby somewhere in LA 
It's a Bloody Mary morning... 

[guitar]

Our golden jet is airborn 
And flight Fifty cuts a path 
Across the mornin' sky 
And a voice comes on the speaker 
Reassuring us flight Fifty 
Is the way to fly 

And a hostess takes our order 
Coffee tea or something stronger 
To start off the day 
Well it's a Bloody Mary morning 
Cause I'm leavin' baby somewhere in LA 
It's a bloody mary morning...

Strong Enough

 

 

 

 

 

 

https://youtu.be/LCYAuTFjAL8

God I feel like hell tonight
The tears of rage I cannot lie
I'd be the last to help you understand

 

Are you strong enough to be my man
My man

 

Nothing's true, and nothing's right
So let me be alone tonight
'Cause you can't change the way I am

 

Are you strong enough to be my man

 

Lie to me, I promise I'll believe
Lie to me, but please don't leave

 

I have a face I cannot show
I make the rules up as I go
Just try and love me if you can

 

Are you strong enough to be my man
My man
Are you strong enough (to be my man)
Are you strong enough (to be my man)
Are you strong enough
My man

 

When I've shown you
That I just don't care
When I'm throwing punches in the air
When I'm broken down and I can't stand

 

Would you be man enough to be my man

 

Lie to me, I promise I'll believe
Lie to me, but please don't leave

Half the way

 

 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLUgyJP4_wE

Half of your love is just not what I'm after
Part of your world is just not what I need
Some of your time is like one glass of water
Just leaves me thirsty for wine

 

So fill me up to the top
Oh, don't you stop till I'm over-flowing
Love is the seed
And babe, I need you to keep it growing
Stronger every day, oh no
Don't take me half the way
Don't take me half the way

 

Never before have I settled for second
All of my life, I have hungered for more
Now I can see where your sweet love can lead me
This is what I've waited for

 

So fill me up to the top
Oh, don't you stop till I'm over-flowing
Love is the seed
And babe, I need you to keep it growing
Stronger every day, oh no
Don't take me half the way
Don't take me half the way

 

Don't take me half the way
Don't take me half the way

 

Half of your love is just not what I'm after, no
Part of your world is just not what I need
Now I can see where your sweet love can lead me
This is what I've waited for

 

So fill me up to the top
Oh, don't you stop till I'm over-flowing
Love is the seed
And babe, I need you to keep it growing
Stronger every day, oh no
Don't take me half the way
Don't take me half the way

 

Give me all your love
Don't take me half the way
Don't take me half the way

 

Give me all your love
Don't take me half the way
Don't take me half the way
Don't take me half the way

"I'm Gonna Miss Her"https://youtu.be/WwRrKaq0IyY

Well I love her
But I love to fish
I spend all day out on this lake
And hell is all I catch
Today she met me at the door
Said I would have to choose
If I hit that fishin' hole today
She'd be packin' all her things
And she'd be gone by noon

Well, I'm gonna miss her!
When I get home
But right now I'm on this lake shore
And I'm sittin' in the sun
I'm sure it'll hit me
When I walk through that door tonight
Yeah, I'm gonna miss her
Oh, lookie there, I've got a bite

Now there's a chance that if I hurry
I could beg her to stay
But that water's right
And the weather's perfect
No tellin' what I might catch today

So I'm gonna miss her
When I get home
But right now I'm on this lake shore
And I'm sittin' in the sun
I'm sure it'll hit me
When I walk through that door tonight
Yeah, I'm gonna miss her
Oh, lookie there, another bite

Yeah, I'm gonna miss her
Oh, lookie there, I've Got A Bite

"Don't Ask Me No Questions"

 

 

https://youtu.be/zQBLeOgp30E

 

Well everytime that I come home nobody wants to let me be 
It seems that all the friends I got just got to come interrogate me 
Well, I appreciate your feelings and I don't want to pass you by 
But I don't ask you about your business, don't ask me about mine

Well its true I love the money and I love my brand new car 
I like drinkin' the best of whiskey and playing in a honky tonk bar 
But when I come off the road, well I just got to have my time 
'Cause I got to find a break in this action, else I'm gonna lose my mind

[Chorus]
So, don't ask me no questions 
And I won't tell you no lies 
So, don't ask me about my business 
And I won't tell you goodbye

That's right

Well, "what's your favorite color and do you dig the brothers," is drivin' me up a wall 
And everytime I think I can sleep, some fool has got to call 
Well don't you think that when I come home, I just want a little peace of mind 
If you want to talk about the business buddy, you're just wastin' time

[Chorus]

I said don't ask no stupid questions and I won't send you away 
If you want to talk fishin, well I guess that'll be OK

"Heart Of Glass"

 

                                                  

 

                              http://youtu.be/WGU_4-5RaxU?list=RDIQoijFax5Ic

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I'm feeling fine
Love is so confusing there's no peace of mind
If I fear I'm losing you it's just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I'm the one you're using, please don't push me aside
We could've made it cruising, yeah

Yeah, riding high on love's true bluish light

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out I had a heart of glass [radio version]
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass [album version]
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

"What's Your Mama's Name"

Thiry some odd years ago
A young man came to Memphis
Askin' 'bout a rose that used to blossom 
In his world
People never took the time 
to mind the young man's questions
Until one day they heard him ask 
a little green eyed girl

[Chorus:]
What's your mama's name child
What's your mama's name
Does she ever talk about
A place called New Orleans
Has she ever mentioned
A man named Bueferd Wilson
What's your mama's name child
What's your mama's name

Twenty some odd years ago
A drunk went down in Memphis
Lost a month of life and labor 
To the county jail
Just because he asked a little green eyed girl a question
And offered her a nickel's worth of candy if she'd tell

A year and some odd days ago
An old man died in Memphis
Just another wayward soul
 The county had to claim
Inside the old mans ragged coat
They found a faded letter
It said you have a daughter
And her eyes are Wilson green

[Repeat Chorus]

"Lizzie And The Rainman"

 

                                                   http://youtu.be/1nuCxNfk1F8

He came ridin' in on the sunrise of a hot west Texas day
A fancy man in a painted wagon with some fancy things to say
Looks like you folks need some water, well water is my game
And for the small price of $100 I betcha I can make it rain

Step back non believers or the rain will never come
Somebody start that fire a-burning somebody beat the drum
You know some may think I'm crazy for making all these claims
But I swear before this day is over you folks are gonna see some rain

They all just stood there a-staring trying to believe
But there was one named Lizzie Cooper who said he was a lying cheat
You say you call yourself a rainman, well you oughta be ashamed 
Starting all these people dreamin', thinking you can make it rain

Step back non believers or the rain will never come
Somebody keep that fire a-burning somebody beat the drum
You know some may think I'm crazy for making all these claims
But I swear before this day is over you folks are going see some rain

Hey Lizzie, well a mans got to have a dream 
And if you can't walk on the inside with me, I'll meet you in between
Oh come with me Lizzie and the stars will Write your name
And if you still think I'm lying to you, look younder there comes the rain

Step back non believers for the rain will never come
Somebody keep that fire a-burning somebody beat the drum
You know some folks think I'm crazy for making all these claims
But I swear before this day is over you folks are going see some rain

[Repeat and fade]
