Anyone Else But You

Anyone Else But You

performed live at Spinner by The Moldy Peaches

You’re a part-time lover and a full-time friend,
The monkey on your back is the latest trend.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of the train,
Kiss you all starry-eyed, my body swingin’ from side to side.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Here is the church and here is the steeple,
We sure are cute for two ugly people.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me,
So, why can’t you forgive me?
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
I will find my nitch in your car,
With my MP3, DVD, rumple-packed guitar.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
… … …
Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, be a start.
Just because we use cheats doesn’t mean we’re not smart.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
You are always tryin’ to keep it real,
I’m in love with how you feel.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
We both have shiny, happy fits of rage,
You want more fans, I want more stage.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Don Quixote was a steel-driving man,
My name is Adam, I’m your biggest fan!
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Scrinched up your face and did a dance,
Shook a little turd out of the bottom of your pants.
I don’t see what anyone can see in anyone else, but you.
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
… … … but you.

Be My Girl

Not very musical, but therapeutic and fun nonetheless… Enjoy some romping good fun this Friday!

And, please do not watch this if you are not totally 100% mature, and 18+ (I MEAN IT!)…

Be My Girl

performed by The Police

animated & directed by Eric Sullivan

Won’t you be my girl
Won’t you be my girl
Won’t you be my, be my, be my girl
… … …
I was blue and lonely, I couldn’t sleep a wink
And I could only get unconscious if I’d had to much to drink
There was somehow, something wrong somewhere
And each day seemed grey and dead
The seeds of desperation were growing in my head
I needed inspiration, a brand new start in life
Somewhere to place affection, but I didn’t want a wife
And then by lucky chance I saw in a special magazine
An ad that was unusual, the like I’d never seen
“Experience something different with our new imported toy
She’s loving, warm, inflatible and a guarantee of joy.”
She came all wrapped in cardboard, all pink and shrivelled down
A breath of air was all she needed to make her lose that frown
I took her to the bedroom and pumped her with some life
And later in a moment that girl became my wife
And so I sit her in the corner and sometimes stroke her hair
And when I’m feeling naughty I blow her up with air
She’s cuddly and she’s bouncy, she’s like a rubber ball
I bounce her in the kitchen and I bounce her in the hall
And now my life is different since Sally came my way
I wake up in the morning and have her on a tray
She’s everything they say she was and I wear a permanent grin
And I only have to worry in case my girl wears thin
Won’t you be my girl
Won’t you be my girl
Won’t you be my, be my, Be my girl
… … …

Un-Wishing Well

Un-Wishing Well

performed by Rajaton

I dropped a coin in a wishing well; I’d heard that’s what you do
You drop a coin in a wishing well to make your wishes come true.
It must have been a real wishing well… what I wished for, I got.
I wished for love in that wishing well, and now I wish I had not
Where’s and un-wishing well? I have to break the spell!
Never again will I ever spend a penny on any well.
There has to be an un-wishing well, a magic to undo,
all the trouble I wished myself, the day that I wished for you.
And, oh the trouble I wished myself, not every wish should come true.
There has to be an un-wishing well, there really has to be.
All foolish wished could be dispelled and foolish lovers be free.
Free of the spell of some wishing well and free to love anew…
Free to be careful of wishing wells… not every wish should come true.
Where’s that un-wishing well?
I need to break this spell of pain and heartache
and the mistake of falling in love too well.
There has to be an un-wishing well, a magic to undo,
all the trouble I wished myself, the day that I wished for you.
And, oh the trouble I wished myself, not every wish should come true.
Show me the way, and I’ll gladly pay
to un-wish unwise wishes far away.

Do What?

Do What?

performed by the Squirrel Nut Zippers

Say what?
That’s what my baby said to me
Say what?
That’s what my baby said to me
When I ask her do you love me?
All she ever says is, ‘Say What?’
swirly-heart
Do what?
That’s what my baby said to me
Now, do what?
That’s what my baby said to me
When I ask her do you love me?
All she ever says is, ‘Do What?’

… … …

Now, do what?
… … …
You want me to do what?

Could You Be Loved?

Could You Be Loved

by Bob Marley

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved and be loved?
Don’t let them fool you
Or even try to school you, Oh! No
We’ve got a mind of our own
So go to hell if what you’re thinkin’ isn’t right
Love would never leave us alone
In the darkness there must come out to light
Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved and be loved?
The road of life is rocky
And you may stumble too
So while you point your fingers
Someone else is judgin’ you
Love your brotherman
Could you be, could you be, could you be loved?
Could you be, could you be loved?
Don’t let them change you
Or even rearrange you, Oh! No
We’ve got a life to live
They say only, only
Only the fittest of the fittest shall survive
Stay alive
Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved and be loved?
You ain’t gonna miss your water
Until your well runs dry
No matter how you treat him
The man will never be satisfied
Could you be, could you be, could you be loved
Could you be, could you be loved
Could you be, could you be loved
Say something, say something, say something
Say something
Reggae, Reggae
Say something
Rockers, Rockers
Say something could you be loved

The Things We Do For Love

The Things We Do For Love

performed by 10CC

Too many broken hearts have fallen in the river
Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea,
You lay your bets and then you pay the price
The things we do for love, the things we do for love.
Communication is the problem to the answer
Youve got her number and your hand is on the phone
The weathers turned, and all the lines are down
The things we do for love, the things we do for love.
Like walking in the rain and the snow
When there’s nowhere to go
And you’re feelin like a part of you is dying
And you’re looking for the answer in her eyes.
You think you’re gonna break up
Then she says she wants to make up.
Ooh you made me love you (you made me love you)
Ooh you’ve got a way (you’ve got a way)
Ooh you had me crawling up the wall. oooooo
ahhhhhhh
The things we do for love, the things we do for love.
Like walking in the rain and the snow
When there’s nowhere to go
And you’re feelin like a part of you is dying
And you’re looking for the answer in her eyes.
You think you’re gonna break up
Then she says she wants to make up.
Ooh you made me love you (you made me love you)
Ooh you’ve got a way (you’ve got a way)
Ooh you had me crawling up the wall. 0Ooooo
A compromise would surely help the situation
Agree to disagree but disagree to part
When after all its just a compromise of
The things we do for love, the things we do for love
… … …

So Into You

So Into You

performed by the Atlanta Rhythm Section

When you walked into the room
There was voodoo in the vibes
I was captured by your style
But I could not catch your eyes
Now I stand here helplessly
Hoping you’ll get into me
I am so into you
I can’t think of nothing else
I am so into you
I can’t think of nothing else
Thinking how it’s going to be
Whenever I get you next to me
It’s gonna be good, dont you know
From your head to your toe
Gonna love you all over, over and over
Me into you, you into me, me into you
I am so into you
I am so into you, ooh
When you walked into the room
There was voodoo in the vibes
I was captured by your style
But I could not catch your eyes
Now I stand here helplessly
Hoping you’ll get into me
I am so into you
I can’t get to nothing else
I am so into you baby
I can’t get to nothing else
No no no come on baby
I am so into you
Love the things you do
Listen baby
Driving me crazy, oooh
Come on baby, oo-ooh
I am so into you
Love the things you do
Come on baby
I am so into you
