Rocking In The Free World - Mr. Sometimes Y

There's colors on the street
Red, white and blue
People shufflin' their feet
People sleepin' in their shoes
But there's a warnin' sign
on the road ahead
There's a lot of people sayin'
we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like Satan,
but I am to them
So I try to forget it,
any way I can.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

I see a woman in the night
With a baby in her hand
Under an old street light
Near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away,
and she's gone to get a hit
She hates her life,
and what she's done to it
There's one more kid
that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love,
never get to be cool.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world.

We got a thousand points of light
For the homeless man
We got a kinder, gentler,
Machine gun hand
We got department stores
and toilet paper
Got styrofoam boxes
for the ozone layer
Got a man of the people,
says keep hope alive
Got fuel to burn,
got roads to drive.

Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world,
Keep on rockin' in the free world. 

 

Or Ohio -CSNY

 

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

'When the fall's all that's left, it matters a great deal.

My favorite song by Bob Dylan, with some of the best lyrics of all time. (And some of the lyrics are my signature)

 

May God bless and keep you always

May your wishes all come true

May you always do for others

And let others do for you

May you build a ladder to the stars

And climb on every rung

May you stay forever young

Forever young, forever young

May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous

May you grow up to be true

May you always know the truth

And see the lights surrounding you

May you always be courageous

Stand upright and be strong

May you stay forever young

Forever young, forever young

May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy

May your feet always be swift

May you have a strong foundation

When the winds of changes shift

May your heart always be joyful

And may your song always be sung

May you stay forever young

Forever young, forever young

May you stay forever young.

 

-Forever Young Bob Dylan

Just a few, there are tons more where that came from.

 

Kiss me, please kiss me

Kiss me out of desire, baby, not consolation. -- Jeff Buckley Last Goodbye

 

Meet me any place or anywhere or any time

Now I don't care meet me tonight

If you will dare, I will dare.  -- The Replacements I Will Dare

 

Oh, I said "I'm so happy, I could die."

She said "Drop dead," then left with another guy... -- Elvis Costello (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes

 

I don't know

I don't know which side I'm on

I don't know my right from left

Or my right from wrong

Say I'm a fool

You say I'm not for you

But if I'm a fool for you

Oh, that's something -- U2 Two Hearts Beat As One

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." — Dr. Seuss

Paul McCartney - Here Today


AND IF I SAY I REALLY KNEW YOU WELL, 
WHAT WOULD YOUR ANSWER BE? 
IF YOU WERE HERE TODAY. 
UH, UH, UH, HERE TODAY. 

WELL, KNOWING YOU, 
YOU'D PROBABLY LAUGH AND SAY 
THAT WE WERE WORLDS APART. 
IF YOU WERE HERE TODAY. 
UH, UH, UH, HERE TODAY. 

BUT AS FOR ME, 
I STILL REMEMBER HOW IT WAS BEFORE 
AND I AM HOLDING BACK THE TEARS NO MORE. 
UH, UH, UH,
I LOVE YOU, UH. 

WHAT ABOUT THE TIME WE MET? (what about the time?) 
WELL, I SUPPOSE THAT YOU COULD SAY 
THAT WE WERE PLAYING HARD TO GET. 
DIDN'T UNDERSTAND A THING, 
BUT WE COULD ALWAYS SING. 

WHAT ABOUT THE NIGHT WE CRIED? (what about the night) 
BECAUSE THERE WASN'T ANY REASON 
LEFT TO KEEP IT ALL INSIDE. 
NEVER UNDERSTOOD A WORD, 
BUT YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE WITH A SMILE. 

AND IF I SAY I REALLY LOVED YOU 
AND WAS GLAD YOU CAME ALONG. 
THEN YOU WERE HERE TODAY, 
UH, UH, UH, FOR YOU WERE IN MY SONG. 

UH, UH, UH, HERE TODAY.

 The Beatles;   Paul John George Ringo and me .. Shannon!  Favourite Beatle; James Paul McCartney.

Well, IMDb says it's supposed to come out this year.

Yeah, I saw that. As a matter of fact, that IMBd listing has been there since 2009. I know that Marty is a busy dude, but enough already.

Thanks, Pterodactyl

I agree, us US Americans don't take too kindly to insults from you Canadian folk.

But my favorite lyrics are Working Class Hero, I don't think anyone has made a more meaningful political song.

"As soon as you're born, they make you feel small," just an incredible opening line.

"They hate you if you're clever, and they despise a fool. Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules."

"Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV, and you think you're so clever and classless and free."

That man was a genius, the last line was about hippies or whatever but it's still so true because of how apathetic our society is due to problems not directly affecting us, so we act like everything is cool but it's really not.
