Travelling Riverside Blues – Led Zeppelin


Asked sweet mama, Let me be her kid
She said, “You might get hurt if you don’t keep it hid”

Well I know my baby, If I see her in the dark
I said I know my rider, If I see her in the dark

Now, I goin’ to Rosedale, Take my rider by my side
Still barrelhouse, If it’s on the riverside, yeah
I know my baby, Lord, I said, is really sloppy drunk
I know my mama, Lord, a brownskin, but she ain’t no plum

See my baby, tell her, Tell her hurry home
Had no lovin’, since my baby been gone
See my baby, Tell hurry on home
I ain’t had, Lord, my right mind, Since my rider’s been gone

Hey, she promises, She’s my rider
I wanna tell you, She’s my rider
I know you’re mine, She’s my rider
She ain’t but sixteen, But she’s my rider

I’m goin’ to Rosedale, Take my rider by side
Anybody argue with me man, I’ll keep them satisfied
Well, see my baby, tell her, Tell her the shape I’m in
Ain’t had no lovin’, Lord, since you know when

Spoken: Why don’t you come into my kitchen

She’s a kindhearted lady. She studies evil all the time
She’s a kindhearted woman. She studies evil all the time

Squeeze my lemon ’til the juice runs down my leg
Squeeze it so hard, I’ll fall right out of bed
Squeeze my lemon, ’til the juice runs down my leg

Spoken: I wonder if you know what I’m talkin’ about

Oh, but the way that you squeeze it girl
I swear I’m gonna fall right out of bed

She’s a good rider
She’s my kindhearted lady
I’m gonna take my rider by my side
I said her front teeth are lined with gold
She’s gotta mortgage on my body, got a lien on my soul
She’s my brownskin sugar plum

Kiss Me – Sixpence None the Richer

Kiss me, out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, (swing, swing) swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress

Oh, kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me, (kiss me) down by the broken tree house
Swing me, (swing me) upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring, (bring, bring) bring your flowered hat
We’ll take the trail marked on your father’s map

Oh, kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me, beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss me

So kiss me
So kiss me
So kiss me

Here’s Where the Story Ends – The Sundays

People I know
Places I go
Make me feel tongue tied
I can see how
People look down
They’re on the inside

Here’s where the story ends

People I see
Weary of me
Showing my good side
I can see how
People look down
I’m on the outside

Here’s where the story ends
Ooh, here’s where the story ends

It’s that little souvenir
Of a terrible year
Which makes my eyes feel sore
Oh, I never should have said
The books that you read
Were all I loved you for
It’s that little souvenir
Of a terrible year
Which makes me wonder why
And it’s the memories of the shed
That make me turn red
Surprise, surprise, surprise

Crazy, I know
Places I go
Make me feel so tired
I can see how
People look down
I’m on the outside

Oh, here’s where the story ends
Ooh, here’s where the story ends

It’s that little souvenir
Of a terrible year
Which makes my eyes feel sore
And who ever would’ve thought
The books that you brought
Were all I loved you for?
Oh, the devil in me said
Go down to the shed
I know where I belong
But the only thing I ever really wanted to say
Was wrong, was wrong, was wrong
It’s that little souvenir
Of a colorful year
Which makes me smile inside
So I cynically, cynically say
The world is that way
Surprise, surprise, surprise, surprise, surprise

Here’s, where the story ends
Ooh, here’s, where the story ends

No One Knows – Queens Of The Stone Age

We get some rules to follow
That and this, these and those
No one knows
We get these pills to swallow
How they stick in your throat?
Tastes like gold
Oh, what you do to me
No one knows

And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool am I
And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool am I

I journey through the desert
Of the mind with no hope
I follow
I drift along the ocean
Dead lifeboats in the sun
And come undone
Pleasantly caving in
I come undone

And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool am I
And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool am I

Heaven smiles above me
What a gift here below
But no one knows
The gift that you give to me
No one knows

I Can See Clearly Now – Johnny Nash

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

Look all around, there’s nothin but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothin but blue skies

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

Neighbors – Rolling Stones

Neighbours, neighbours, neighbours

Neighbours
Have I got neighbours?
Have I got neighbours?
All day and all night
Neighbours
Have I got neighbours?
Ringing my doorbells
All day and all night

Ladies, have I got crazies?
Screamin’ young babies
No piece and no quiet
I got TV’s, saxophone playin’
Groanin’ and strainin’
With the trouble and strife

Is it any wonder?
Is it any wonder?
Is it any wonder
That we fuss and fight?

Neighbours
Do unto strangers
Do unto neighbours
What you do to yourself, yourself, yourself
Yourself, yourself?
Is it any wonder?
Is it any wonder?
Is it any wonder
That we fuss and fight?

Neighbours
Do unto strangers
Do unto neighbours
What you do to yourself, yourself, yourself
Yourself?

Neighbours, neighbours, neighbours, neighbours
Neighbours, neighbours, neighbours, neighbours
Neighbours

Do yourself a favour
Don’t you mess with my baby
When I’m workin’ all night
You know that neighbours
Steal off my table
Steal off my table
And doin’ alright, alright, alright, alright

Neighbours do unto strangers
Do unto strangers
What you do to yourself
Yourself, yourself, yourself

Pass the Dutchie – Musical Youth

Musical Youth are a British Jamaican reggae band formed in 1979 in Birmingham, England. They are best remembered for their successful 1982 single “Pass the Dutchie”, which became a No. 1 hit around the world. The band recorded two studio albums, and released a number of successful singles throughout 1982 and 1983, including a collaboration with Donna Summer in “Unconditional Love”.

From the youtube comments:
Gropiaf
“There’s a common misconception that Musical Youth’s number one hit in 1982, Pass the Dutchie, is a song about cannabis, when in fact the song is about extreme poverty; the ‘dutchie’ in the lyrics refers to a type of pot used for cooking. It’s an easy mistake to make though because the song Pass the Dutchie is actually a cover version of a song released just one year earlier called Pass the Koutchie by the Mighty Diamonds, which was indeed a song all about cannabis.”
