Seems this is another of those threads that got archived lately. Needs starting up again :D Here's my offering:

Night Train
(Guns'n Roses version)

Loaded like a freight train
Flyin' like an aeroplane
Feelin' like a space brain
One more time tonight

Well I'm a west coast struttin'
One bad mother
Got a rattlesnake suitcase
Under my arm
Said I'm a mean machine
Been drinkin' gasoline
And honey you can make my motor hum
Well I got one chance left
In a nine live cat
I got a dog eat dog sly smile
I got a Molotov cocktail with a match to go
I smoke my cigarette with style
An I can tell you honey
You can make my money tonight

Wake up late honey put on your clothes
Take your credit card to the liquor store
That's one for you and two for me by tonight
I'll be loaded like a freight train
Flyin' like an aeroplane
Feelin' like a space brain
One more time tonight

I'm on the nightrain
Bottoms up
I'm on the nightrain
Fill my cup
I'm on the nightrain
Ready to crash and burn
I never learn
I'm on the nightrain
I love that stuff
I'm on the nightrain
I can never get enough
I'm on the nightrain
Never to return - no

Loaded like a freight train
Flyin' like an aeroplane
Speedin' like a space brain
One more time tonight

I'm on the nightrain
And I'm lookin' for some
I'm on the nightrain
So's I can leave this slum
I'm on the nightrain
And I'm ready to crash an' burn
Nightrain
Bottoms up
I'm on the nightrain
Fill my cup
I'm on the nightrain

Whoa yeah
I'm on the nightrain
Love that stuff
I'm on the nightrain
An I can never get enough
Ridin' the nightrain
I guess I
I guess, I guess, I guess I never learn

On the nightrain
Float me home
Ooh I'm on the nightrain
Ridin' the nightrain
Never to return
Nightrain

Just something that I can't help but sing (read: scream) along with, cruising in Ladybug with the volume UP! :guitar:

Power To The People, John Lennon

Power to the people

Power to the people
Power to the people

Power to the people, right on

Say you want a revolution
We better get on right away
Well you get on your feet
And out on the street

Singing power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

A million workers working for nothing
You better give em what they really own
We got to put you down
When we come into town

Singing power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

I gotta ask you comrades and brothers
How do you treat you own woman back home
She got to be herself
So she can free herself

Singing power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on
Now, now, now, now

Oh well, power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

Yeah, power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

Power to the people

Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

Copper Kettle
as sung by Joan Baez

Get you a copper kettle, / Get you a copper coil, /
Cover with new-made corn mash / And never more you'll toil /
You'll just lay there by the juniper / While the moon is bright, /
Watch them jugs a-fillin' / In the pale moonlight.

My daddy, he made whiskey / My granddaddy did too /
We ain't paid no whiskey tax / Since 1792 /
We just lay there by the juniper / (&c)

Build you a fire with hick'ry / Hick'ry and ash and oak /
Don't use no green nor rotten wood, / They'll get you by the smoke /
And you'll lay by the juniper / (&c)

(Think there may be a fourth verse, but I don't call it to mind right off the top of my head.)

"As The Crow Flies"


Mother Crow, Feels no pain,
Speaks no words
Speckled egg, Hatching slow,
by the black baby bird

One day, fly over me

Paste you in, Flannel coat, months fly by.
Grow your bones, feathers, skin, bible black by and by
You will spread your wings.

One day, fly over me

Fly over, fly over me.

Ludo - "Love Me Dead"

Love me cancerously
Like a salt-sore soaked in the sea.
'High-maintenance' means
You're a gluttonous queen
Narcissistic and mean.
Kill me romantically
Fill my soul with vomit
Then ask me for a piece of gum.
Bitter and dumb
You're my sugarplum.
You're awful, I love you!

She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed

Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!

You're a faith-healer on T.V.
You're an office park without any trees
Corporate and cold
Gushing for gold
Leave me alone.
You suck so passionately
You're a parasitic, psycho, filthy creature
finger-bangin' my heart
You call me up drunk
Does the fun ever start?
You're hideous and sexy!

Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!

Love me cancerously
Brrrot-dot-da-d-da-da!
How's your new boy?
Does he know about me?
You've got the mark of the beast.
You're born of a jackal! You're beautiful!

Wha' 'bout that sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead!

Led Zeppelin lyrics:

"Dazed and Confused"
Been Dazed and Confused for so long it's not true,
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
Soul of a woman was created below. Yeah!

You hurt and abused tellin' all of your lies,
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been,
Gonna love you baby, here I come again.

Every day I work so hard
Bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don't know where you're goin'
Only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true,
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?

"Whole Lotta Love"
You need coolin', baby, I'm not foolin',
I'm gonna send you back to schoolin',
Way down inside honey, you need it,
I'm gonna give you my love, X2

*Wanna Whole Lotta Love? X4

You've been learnin', baby, I bean learnin',
All them good times, baby, baby, I've been yearnin',
Way, way down inside honey, you need it,
I'm gonna give you my love X2

* Chorus

You've been coolin', baby, I've been droolin',
All the good times I've been misusin',
Way, way down inside, I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you every inch of my love,
Gonna give you my love.
Yeah! All right! Let's go!

* Chorus

Way down inside, woman, You need love.
Shake for me, girl, I wanna be your backdoor man.
Hey, oh, hey, oh, Oh, oh, oh, Keep a-coolin', baby,
Keep a-coolin', baby.

"Custard Pie"
Rock down, lady, by the sea
Rock down, mama, just dream of me
Mama, love me, fool around all night long
Well, I'm may look like I'm crazy
I should know right from wrong

See me comin' slowly on by your door
Ain't no stranger, I been this way before
See me comin', mama, slowly on by your door
I ain't no stranger, I been this way before

Put on your night shirt and your morning gown
You know by night I'm gonna shake 'em on down
Put on your night shirt, mama
And your morning gown
Well, you know by night
I'm surely gonna shake 'em on down
Shake it, shake it

Ooh, your custard pie, ain't seen the like
When you cut it, mama, save me a slice
Your custard pie, I declare, ain't seen the like
I like your custard pie
When you cut it, mama
Mama, please save me a slice, oh

Chew on a piece of your custard pie (Repeat)
Drop down (Repeat)

"Defy Gravity" from Wicked
(Elphaba)



Something has changed within me.
Something is not the same.
I'm through with playing by the rules of someone else's game.
Too late for second-guessing.
Too late to go back to sleep!
It's time to trust my instincs.
Close my eyes, and leap!

It's time to try defying gravity.
I think I'll try defying gravity,
and you can't pull me down!
I'm through accepting limits,
'Cuz someone says they're so!
Some things I cannot change,
but 'till I try, I'll never know!

Too long I've been afraid of
losing love, I guess I've lost!
Well, if thats love,
it comes at much to high a cost!
I'd sooner buy defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye! I'm defying gravity,
and you can't pull me down!

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately:
"Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly!"
And if I'm flying solo,
At least I'm flying free.

To those who'd ground me,
Take a message back from me:
Tell them how I am
Defying gravity!
I'm flying high,
Defying gravity!

what I like to listen to when I'm feeling blue




Empty spaces - what are we living for
Abandoned places - I guess we know the score
On and on
Does anybody know what we are looking for

Another hero another mindless crime
Behind the curtain in the pantomime
Hold the line
Does anybody want to take it anymore

The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Whatever happens I'll leave it all to chance
Another heartache another failed romance
On and on
Does anybody know what we are living for
I guess I'm learning
I must be warmer now
I'll soon be turning round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free

The show must go on
The show must go on - yeah
Ooh inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Yeah, oh oh oh

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly - my friends

The show must go on - yeah
The show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On with the show

I'll top the bill
I'll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the
On with the show

The show must go on, go on, go on, go on, ...
