Godley & Creme – Business Is Business lyrics

Is here
Just give it to ’em
Never think about it
Force fed
On half dead melodies
Dragged up from the archives
Playing on your sympathies
I’m being brain-washed
And don’t know how to block it
‘Cos something in the chorus
Burns a hole in my pocket
And I can’t feel the pain
When my finger’s in the socket
And only the numb survive
Only the numb survive
Only the numb survive
Business is business
Business is business
Business is business
Everyone was doing it
You weren’t at the party last night
M. O. Are. O. Are. O. Is you
M. Is safe
M. Are. O. Are. O. Is here
Where
Relax, Relax
Relax, Relax
Relax, Relax
Relax, Relax
Maybe you can think of a way
To turn me on

M. O. Is good
M. Are. Are. Are. Is good
M. O. Keep it simple
Keep it neat
Aim your hook
At the man in the street
Throw him the bones
But freeze the meat
‘Cos the meat goes off
But the beat goes on
Business is business
Business is business
Business is business
And only the tough survive
Radio fallout
In an open prison
Jazz-based soul tinged
Watered down rhythm
Too many pretty sleeves
With Nothing in ’em
Johnny be good or bad
But not indifferent
Hard-core bland-out
Stocking filler
Soft-sell overkill
Tee-shirts given
Everybody’s wearing them
See you at the party tonight

Blaggards – Botany Bay lyrics

The boss came up this morning, he says “well Pat you know
If you don’t get your navvys out I’m afraid you have to go”
So I asked him for me wages and demanded all my pay
For I told him straight, I’m going to emigrate to the shores of Botany Bay
Farewell to your bricks and mortar, farewell to your dirty lies
Farewell to your gangers and gang planks, to hell with your overtime
For the good ship Ragamuffin is lying at the quay
To take oul Pat with a shovel on his back
To the shores of Botany Bay. I’m on my way down to the quay where the ship at anchor lays
To command a gang of navvys that they told me to engage
I thought I’d drop in for a drink before I went away
For to take a trip on an emigrant ship to the shores of Botany Bay
Farewell to your bricks and mortar, farewell to your dirty lies
Farewell to your gangers and gang planks, to hell with your overtime
For the good ship Ragamuffin is lying at the quay
To take oul Pat with a shovel on his back
To the shores of Botany Bay. Arewell to your bricks and mortar, farewell to your dirty lies
Farewell to your gangers and gang planks, to hell with your overtime
For the good ship Ragamuffin is lying at the quay
To take oul Pat with a shovel on his back
To the shores of Botany Bay. And when I reach Australia I’ll go and look for gold
There’s plenty there for the digging of, or so I have been told
Or else I’ll go back to my trade and a hundred bricks I’ll lay
Because I live for an eight hour shift on the shores of Botany Bay

Methods Of Mayhem – Anger Management lyrics

Get the fuck back punk
get the fuck back back
why you testing me? No one can condemn! Get the fuck back punk
get the fuck back! Get the fuck back punk
get the fuck back back
why you testing me? I don’t deny I’m in the public eye
Seems like 24/7 being watched by a spy
Makes me wonder why they don’t live their own lives
They’re not news reporters
They’re full of bullshit and lies
Leave them alone their karma will be their demise
I can read between the lines
They make up shit because there’s no shit to find-find (fu-fu-fu-fuck ’em)
I’m under a microscope directly going to prison if I take a toke
People ask me for answers as if I was the pope
I’m my own spiritual leader on this emotional teeter totter
My senses are getting hotter
Are you testing me? Are you testing me? Get the fuck back punk
get the fuck back back
(No one can condemn! No one can condem!)
Fittin’ to go Richter
Gonna get sicka
That’s for sure we’re bumpin up the temperature
We’re blowin up the area,
Gonna scare ya,
We’re the Methods of May, May, May, May Ma-Mayhem! Get the fuck back punk
get the fuck back back
(No one can condem! Get the fuck back punk
get the fuck back
Now I see what’s on the real
The public craves drama like a pig that squeals
They watched me in court testifyin’ to a fucked up charge
I was drowning myself in my own tears
Of my Boys growing up in the early years
Without their father near
Ain’t no way I’m gonna dissapear
Can you hear? Are you testing me? Get the fuck back punk
get the fuck back back
why you testing me? Freedom can be taken from you at anytime
So you better think twice before you pay the price, pay the price! Get the fuck back punk
get the fuck back back
why you testing me? Are you testing me? No one can condemn!)
Fittin’ to go Richter
Gonna get sicka
That’s for sure
We’re bumpin up the temperature
We’re blowin up the area,
Gonna scare ya,
We’re the Methods of Mayhem!

Sam Neely – Loving You Just Crossed My Mind lyrics

Loving you just crossed my mind,
Loving you just crossed my mind. In the morning the dives seem to die. Loving any woman who don’t mind, spending time,
Talking over good times and drinking, lots of wine,
Well I don’t have a minute, but I’ve got lots of time,
And loving you just crossed my mind. The price is low, it don’t take much, to live on empty dreams,
So I just sit here laughing, eatin beans
Then I take a drink again, least I’ve got one good friend,
But I don’t like talking to wine, but that’s just fine, cause it’s all mine,
And loving you just crossed my mind. Feelin all the pain inside, you know that don’t seem right,
Feelin all the cries in my eyes. No I don’t have a minute, but I’ve got lots of time,
And loving you just crossed my mind. The wine I had, it tasted fine, but it aint gonna change the times,
Though I have someone else with me, that’s just fine, it’s not the wine,
And loving you just crossed my mind. In the morning the time seems to fly.

Hiroyuki Sawano – The Reluctant Heroes lyrics

Today we have lost our edge
Don’t cha’ know, forgotten is the (life you?)
Now it seems, you talkin’ (where was key?)
The peaceful times are what made us bright
Can’t look back, but we’ll not come back
Can’t be afraid, each time after time
So once again, I’m hiding in my room
The peaceful times are what made us bright
So you can’t fly, and never try
You told me, (how?) long ago
But you left home
And tried again
So hold on our hopes with you
[Chorus]
It was like a nightmare and it’s pain for me
Cuz’ nobody want to die too fast
Remember day of grief
Now it strange for me
I can see your face
I can hear your voice
Remember day we met and it’s pain for me
Cuz’ nobody want to die too fast
Remember day we dream
And it’s pain for me
I can see your face
I can hear your voice
Don’t fall Reluctant Heroes
Oh give me your strength, our life is so short
Don’t fall Reluctant Heroes
I wanna’ be brave like you
From my heart
Don’t fall Reluctant Heroes
Oh give me your strength, our life is so short
Don’t fall Reluctant Heroes
I wanna’ be brave like you
Can’t look back, but we’ll not come back
Can’t be afraid, each time after time
So once again, I’m hiding in my room
The peaceful times are what made us bright
So you can’t fly, and never try
You told me, (how?) long ago
But you left home
And tried again
So hold on our hopes with you
It was like a nightmare and it’s pain for me
Cuz’ nobody want to die too fast
Remember day of grief
And it’s strange for me
I could see your face
I could hear your voice
Remember day we met and it’s pain for me
Cuz’ nobody wants to die too fast
Remember day we dream
And it’s pain for me
I could see your face
I could hear your voice
[Chorus]
It was like a nightmare and it’s pain for me
Cuz’ nobody want to die too fast
Remember day of grief
Now it strange for me
I can see your face
I can hear your voice
Remember day we met and it’s pain for me
Cuz’ nobody want to die too fast
Remember day we dream
And it’s pain for me
I can see your face
I can hear your voice

Air Supply – Without You lyrics

No, I can’t forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that’s just the way the story goes
You always smile but in you eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows

No I can’t forget tomorrow
When I think of all my sorrow
When I had you there but then I let you go
And now it’s only fair that I should let you know
What you should know

Chorus:
I can’t live if living is without you
I can’t give, I can’t give anymore
Can’t live if living is without you
Can’t give, I can’t give anymore

No, I can’t forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that’s just the way the story goes
You always smile but in you eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows

Chorus(2x)

Iron Maiden – Brave New World lyrics

Dying swans twisted wings, beauty not needed here
Lost my love, lost my life, in this garden of fear
I have seen many things, in a lifetime alone
Mother love is no more, bring this savage back home
Wilderness house of pain, makes no sense of it all
Close this mind dull this brain, messiah before his fall
What you see it’s not real, those who know will not tell
All is lost sold your souls to this brave new world
Our brave new world, in a brave new world
Our brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, Our brave new world
In a brave new world, Our brave new world
Dragon kings dying queens, where is salvation now? Lost my life lost my dreams, rip the bones from my flesh
Silent screams laughing here, dying to tell you the truth
You are planned and you are damned in this brave new world
Our brave new world, in a brave new world
Our brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, Our brave new world
In a brave new world, Our brave new world
Our brave new world, in a brave new world
Our brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, Our brave new world
In a brave new world, Our brave new world
Dying swans twisted wings, bring this savage back home

Paul Simon – Bridge Over Troubled Waters lyrics

When you’re weary
Feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all
I’m on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I’ll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
If you need a friend
I’m sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

Billie Holiday – Don’t Explain lyrics

Hush now, don’t explain
Just say you’ll remain
I’m glad your back, don’t explain
Quiet, don’t explain
What is there to gain
Skip that lipstick
Don’t explain
You know that I love you
And that love endures
All my thoughts are of you
For I’m so completely yours
Cry to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, don’t matter
When you’re with me, sweet
Hush now, don’t explain
You’re my joy and pain
My life’s yours love
Don’t explain Billie Holiday / Arthur Herzog Jr.

Fiona Apple – Extraordinary Machine lyrics

I certainly haven’t been shopping for any new shoes
And I certainly haven’t been spreading myself around
I still only travel by foot and by foot it’s a slow climb
But I’m good at being uncomfortable so I can’t stop changing all the time
I noticed that my opponent is always on the go
And won’t go slow so as not to focus and I notice
He’ll hitch a ride with any guide as long as they go fast from whence he came
But he’s no good at being uncomfortable so he can’t stop staying exactly the same
If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can’t help it the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me or treat me mean
I’ll make the most of it I’m an extraordinary machine
I seem to you to seek a new disaster every day
You deem me due to clean my view and be at peace and lay
I mean to prove I mean to move in my own way
And say I’ve been getting along for long before you came into the play
I am the baby of the family
It happens so everybody cares
And wears the sheeps clothes while they chaperone
Curious you’re looking down your nose at me while you appease
Courteous to try and help but let me set your mind at ease
If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can’t help it the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me or treat me mean
I’ll make the most of it I’m an extraordinary machine
Do I so worry you
No need to hurry to my side, it’s very kind
But it’s to no avail
I don’t want the pill
I promise you everything will be just fine
If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can’t help it the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me or treat me mean
I’ll make the most of it I’m an extraordinary machine
If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can’t help it the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me or treat me mean
I’ll make the most of it I’m an extraordinary machine

George Strait – Fool Hearted Memory lyrics

Nickels and dimes
Memories and wines
She’s on his mind once again
The same old fool
The same old stool
Played by the rules but didn’t win
There’s an old love in his heart that he can’t lose
He tried forgetting but he knows that it’s no use
Chorus:
He’s got a fool hearted memory
That won’t let him see
That she walked out the door
He’s got a fool hearted memory
He sits patiently
Here every night so it can fool him more
She was his girl
His only whirl
That string of pearls that slipped away
A thousand dimes
A thousand times
He doesn’t mind what they say
He fills the jukebox
And plays the same old song
He fills his glass
And then he turns her memory on
Chorus
Chorus

Beatles – A Day In The Life lyrics

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream
Ah
I read the news today oh, boy
Four thousand holes in blackburn, lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the albert hall
I’d love to turn you on I read the news today oh, boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn’t notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They’d seen his face before
Nobody was really sure if he was from the house of lords
I saw a film today oh, boy
The english army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book
I’d love to turn you on.

G Herbo – 4 Minutes of Hell Part 5 Lyrics

Yall know what the fuck this is
Yall know exactly what this is
My lil cousin in the county fighting quadruple bodies
But when he beat it, we in Egypt, need a newer hobby
He beat his robbery, went back faster than a Maserati
Everybody in the race, I’m tryna cop Bugatti’s
Lost my ?? my niggas man, I’m in the studio right now
Got my big bro in here, Sizzle, with me, top in here
You know, brazy, Big B’s, you know, G-Squeak
In this bitch, uh huh… for real, and we got more guns
Than us… for real, for real, for real, for real, for real…. Them bitches ain’t never touching Instagram
Nothin, none of that, never seeing Instagram
Snapchat, none of that silly ass shit you niggas
Doing, cuz we out here for real (bitch)… a year, but ain’t nobody rob me
We’ll come shoot up the party, ain’t no Lodi Dodi
I got niggas calling my phone from the federales
Told me niggas breaking bad, ain’t sent him 20 dollars
I remember breaking bread with like 20 heads
Imagine me behind the walls for like 20 years
Feeling like I’m dead, I couldn’t even make my bed
I ain’t have no spread
Project still 10 toes bitch and only got 1 leg
Niggas only had 1 life to live, never got no bread
Can’t think back on his decisions now he ain’t got no head
Niggas don’t really be clapping that lead
Yeah, really be scared
My niggas gon’ hop out killing instead
Make sure you cover them dreads
You in the streets better cover your tracks
You can’t talk to that hoe when you going to bed
Wonder how you end up shot in the back
Same way she was for you, that hoe going again
Next thing you know that hoe going again
Yeah gone with the wind
Bitches don’t know when I’m calling again
Next week I’m all in her friends
.40 Glock all in my drawers again
To walk through the mall again
I made 50 songs, had to ball again
Bitch go leak em all again
I’m making songs like Future, I got a future
And I be up with the roosters
Fuck niggas really be losers, really be using
Thats why I’m dolo as usual
And that’s why I tote my own pole with the shooters
I can’t be in this shit snoozing
If a nigga ain’t shooting he ducking or running
And I can’t be in this shit choosing
I remember I used to just play with a 100
Then graduated to 2’s
I remember I used to just bag up them onions
Then graduated to moving
And really my life is a movie
Real diamonds and gold in my jewerly
If you think you gon’ make it, nigga come take it
It do not matter, got Uzi’s
Told my Jeweler to make it, 80 point bracelet
Now ain’t no wonder she naked
Told lil bro to get closer to knock off his face
Cuz we don’t get niggas mistaken
Yeah we fry niggas like bacon
We find niggas like Taken
I’m from 0-7-9
I’m dropping 5’s
And I’m still slamming the rake’s
Still grippin four nickels and S 550’s
This what ima slide on the jakes in
They can’t catch me cuz them squad cars basic
Me and foenem up in our cars racing
Ain’t no pulling over, so we in hot cars daily
And we ain’t instagraming shit, ain’t no haha Davis
I got the gun with the light and the laser
I live my life and the light is amazing
I used to lean on a lot of the lazy
I would just lay back literally lettin her lick me
She did it long like my lady
I think her name was Lindsey, Lala, Lisa, Laura
I’ll get with her later
But I know I’m gon get this to this paper
Yeah I gotta get to the guap
If I don’t ima get on a caper
Soon as I used to get on the block
Police tryna give a nigga the vapor
Why they thinkin I’m gettin niggas knocked off
I’m somewhere way out here in Jamaica
Now I’m gettin a nigga knocked right off the map
Cuz my paper major
Everyday of my life I talk to Cap
He said don’t go to no major
So I ain’t go to no major
Still get major paper
Ain’t got no events, we hit a 100 bands
I been fucking hoes that had another man
See 2 50’s on the weekend, that was running in
We still counting rolls, traveling for shows
30 in bulk, 20 and 30 a show
Ain’t’ fucking no dirty hoes
No I ain’t broke no more
My mama don’t live in the hood no more
I ain’t in the hood no more
I barely pop out in the hood no more
And the henny ain’t worth it no more
Nah I ain’t working no more
I ain’t tryna blow 30s no more
You can’t see me in person no more
I ain’t just Lil Herbie no more
Yeah, I ain’t just Lil Herbie no more
A lot of shit ain’t worth it no more
Can’t see me in person no more
Nah I ain’t working no more
Them lil disses ain’t working no more
You lil niggas ain’t worth it no more
G Herbo, back on my old shit man
You know I’m still on some new shit
You know I’m bossed up, embracing all my power
But I’m back on my old shit man, I don’t give a fuck
Bout none of that shit niggas talkin’ bout
We still on gangsta shit, we still seeing niggas
In public, in the club, smacking the shit out niggas
Hittin’ niggas with bottles, pistol-whipping niggas
All that gangsta shit, with all this ice on
All these VV’s on, Rollies on, all that nigga
We got 30’s on us, Glocks, FN’s, all that shit, you know
Still dropping 4 Minutes Of Hell on you fuck niggas
This part 5 right here, in case you didn’t know
You know what I’m saying, free all my niggas

Charli XCX – Pirates Lyrics

Oh, it’ll be grand, grand
We’d sit on the beach
Holding hands in the sand, sand [Verse 1]
I wish I was a pirate
I’d sail the Seven Seas
And when I’d go out sailing
Won’t you come along with me? Oh, it’ll be grand, grand
We’d sit on the beach
Holding hands in the sand, sand
[Verse 2]
I wish I was a pirate
With a hat and an eyepatch
And when we’d go out sailing
Yeah, you know we’ll never be captured
By the bad boys
We’d sit on the deck, drinking rum
With the bad boys
[Verse 3]
Well, “Melancholy” was my name
And “Captain” was yours
We’d sail the Seven Seas
And then, we will pull up out of the shores
We’d eat Ben & Jerry’s ice cream
Play songs on the guitar
We’d take artistic photographs
But we’d never get that far, no
[Verse 1]
I wish I was a pirate
I’d sail the Seven Seas
And when I’d go out sailing
Won’t you come along with me?
