Endless Sleep Artist: Jody Reynolds (1958) words and music by Jody Reynolds and Dolores Nance The night was black, rain fallin' down Looked for my baby, she's nowhere around Traced her footsteps down to the shore 'fraid she's gone forever more I looked at the sea and it seemed to say I took your baby from you away. Stole her away from the angry sea I looked at the sea and it seemed to say You took your baby from me away.
"Endless Sleep" - Billy Idol The night was black rain fallin' down I looked my baby she's no where aroun' Chased her footsteps down to the shore Afraid she's gone for ever more Well I looked at the sea, seemed to say I took your baby from you away I heard a voice cry in the deep Come join me baby in my endless sleep Why did we quarrel why did we fight Why did I leave her alone last night That's why her foot steps ran down to the sea That's wy my baby has gone from me Well I looked at the sea seemed to say I took your baby from you away Well I heard a voice cry in the deep Come join me baby in my endless sleep Endless sleep Out in the water heart full of fear There in the breaker I saw her near Reached for my darlin' held her to me Dragged her away from the angry sea Well I looked at the sea seemed to say I took your baby from you away I heard a voice cryin' in the deep I took your baby from the endless sleep I grabbed my baby from the endless sleep
El Paso (written and performed by Marty Robbins) from the 1959 Columbia LP, Gunfighter Ballads & Trail Songs, CL 1349 Out in the West Texas town of El Paso I fell in love with a Mexican girl Nighttime would find me in Rosa's cantina Music would play and Feleena would whirl Blacker than night where the eyes of Feleena Wicked and evil while casting her spell My love was deep for this Mexican maiden I was in love, but in vain I could tell One night a wild young cowboy came in Wild as the West Texas wind Dashing and daring, a drink he was sharing With wicked Feleena, the girl that I loved So in anger I challenged his right for the love of this maiden Down went his hand for the gun that he wore My challenge was answered in less than a heartbeat The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor Just for a moment I stood there in silence Shocked by the foul, evil deed I had done Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there I had but one chance and that was to run Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran Out where the horses were tied I caught a good one, it looked like it could run Up on its back and away I did ride Just as fast as I could from the West Texas town of El Paso Out to the badlands of New Mexico Back in El Paso my life would be worthless Everything's gone in life, nothing is left It's been so long since I've seen the young maiden My love is stronger than my fear of death I saddle up and away I did go Riding alone in the dark Maybe tomorrow a bullet will find me Tonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart And at last here I am on the hill overlooking El Paso I can see Rosa's cantina below My love is strong and it pushes me onward Down off the hill to Feleena I go Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys Off to my left are a dozen and more Shouting and shooting I can't let them catch me I have to make it to Rosa's back door Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel A deep burning pain in my side Though I am trying to stay in the saddle I'm getting weary, unable to ride But my love for Feleena is strong, and I rise where I've fallen Though I am weary I can't stop to rest I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle I feel the bullet go deep in my chest From out of nowhere Feleena has found me Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for One little kiss and Feleena, goodbye
The Everly Brothers - Ebony Eyes On a weekend pass I wouldn't have had time To get home and marry that baby of mine So I went to the chaplain and he authorized Me to send for my ebony eyes My ebony eyes was coming to me From out of the skies on Flight 1203 In an hour or two I would whisper "I do" To my beautiful ebony eyes SPOKEN The plane was way overdue so I went inside to the airlines desk and I said "Sir, I wonder why 1203 is so late?" He said "Aww, they probably took off late or they may have run into some turbulent weather and had to alter their course." I went back outside and I waited at the gate and I watched the beacon light from the control tower as it whipped through the dark ebony skies as if it were searching for (my ebony eyes.) And then came the announcement over the loudspeaker- "Would those having relatives or friends on flight number 1203 please report to the chapel across the street at once." Then I felt a burning break deep inside And I knew the heavenly ebony skies Had taken my life's most wonderful prize My beautiful ebony eyes If I ever get to heaven I'll bet The first angel I'll recognize She'll smile at me and I know she will be My beautiful ebony eyes
Emma by Hot Chocolate We were together since we were five She was so pretty Emma was a star in everyone's eyes And when she said she'd be a movie queen Nobody laughed A face like an angel She could be anything Emmaline Emma, Emmaline I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen Emmaline Emma, Emmaline I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen At seventeen we were wed I'd work day and night To earn our daily bread And every day Emma would go out Searching for that play That never, ever came her way You know sometimes she'd come home So depressed I'd hear her crying in the back room Feel so distressed And I'd remember back when she was five To the words that used to make Emmaline come alive It was : "Emmaline, Emma, Emmaline, I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen. Emmaline, Emma, Emmaline I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen." It was a cold and dark December night When I opened up the bedroom door To find her lying still and cold Upon the bed A love letter lying on the bedroom floor It read : "Darling I love you, But I just can't keep on living on dreams no more. I tried so very hard not to leave you alone. I just can't keep on trying no more." Emmaline ... Aaargh, Emmaline ... Aaargh ... Emma, Emmaline ... Aaargh ... Emma, Emmaline ...

Eye Of The Hurricane by David Wilcox Album : How Did You Find Me Here Tank is full, switch is on Night is warm, cops are gone Rocket bike is all her own It's called a hurricane She told me once it's quite a ride It's shaped so there's this place inside Where if you're moving you can hide Safe within the rain She wants to run away But there's nowhere that she can go Nowhere the pain won't come again But she can hide Hide in the pouring rain She rides the eye of the hurricane Tell the truth, explain to me How you got this need for speed She laughed and said "it might just be The next best thing to love." Hope is gone and she confessed When you lay your dream to rest You can get what's second best But it's hard to get enough She wants to run away But there's nowhere that she can go Nowhere the pain won't come again But she can hide Hide in the pouring rain She rides the eye of the hurricane We saw her ride so fast last night Racing by a flash of light Riding quick, the street was dark A shining truck she thought was parked It blocked her path, stopped her heart But not the hurricane She saw her chance to slip the trap There was just the room to pass in back But then it moved, closed the gap She never felt the pain She wants to run away But there's nowhere that she can go Nowhere the pain won't come again But she can hide Hide in the pouring rain She rides the eye of the hurricane She rides the eye of a hurricane.
Eating (by Compulsion): Lying on the floor is the early edition his head in his hands, his daughter's gone everthing he said seems to whisper she's dead I want my supper I want my supper now she tried to force herself in the mirror she dance on the scales "oh god I'm fat" all he does is jeer got to get away from here I want my supper I want my supper now eating they dragged the lake, took three men to lift her no motive is known, no note was found beauty is a dream, is as does, is as seen, supper.
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band - "East Side Story" Beneath the bare light bulb above She gazed into the eyes of love Bathed in the dirty neon lights She begged him "don't go out tonight" If we work out somehow maybe We could find a way out baby And he laughed and said "I got to go" And she cried "no" Johnny Johnny no Oh Johnny Johnny no His arms were warm and strong and young "I promise I won't hurt no one" "Oh baby when you gonna learn, Them folks uptown got bread to burn, When they see me flash my knife, They'll be fearin' for their live, They won't give me trouble this I know" And she cried no Oh Johnny Johnny no Johnny Johnny no [organ solo] The night passed like a thousand years The tenemant room had culled her tears Then came a knock upon the door Two men she'd never seen before "Did you know Johnny Brown miss? We hate to tell you this but Has he a relative you know?" And she cried no Oh Johnny Johnny no Oh Johnny why'd you go?
Stevie Wright - Evie (Parts I, II and III) (Harry Vanda and George Young) Part I I got some money in my pocket I got the car keys in my hand I got myself a couple of tickets To see a rock'n'rollin' band Come on girl, just get on your shoes We're gonna hear some sounds Come on babe, you know there ain't no time To mess around CHORUS Evie, Evie, Evie, let your hair hang down Evie, Evie, Evie, let your hair hang down You got the body of a woman The way you move it like a queen You got the face to raise a riot And still you're only seventeen But little girl, you're oh so shy You hardly make a sound Come on babe, you know there ain't no time To mess around CHORUS So won't you try it, baby I'll take you by the hand 'Cause there's a world out there for you You're goin' to understand You've got the chance, so take it You've just got to pick and choose Why don't you give it just one try I know you can't lose The body of a woman You nearly make me lose my breath You know you give me such a feeling You almost scare me half to death But little girl, you're so reserved You hardly make a sound Come on baby, don't you be so shy Don't mess around CHORUS Come on baby Let your hair hang down (There's a world out there for me and you to share) Let your hair hang down Let your hair hang down (Try it, girl) Let your hair hang down Part II Evie, I wanna thank you now For giving me this child So much a part of me and you Evie, must be a better way To say the things I feel The love I only know with you But I don't know what it is that Make me feel the way I do CHORUS Woh-oh-oh Evie Woh-oh-oh Evie Oh Evie So much in love with you Part III When I woke this morning I was king of the world Without even knowing if it's a boy or a girl But each passing minute, the world that I love Is slipping away from me CHORUS Before I know it I'm losing you, losing you, losing you Before I know it I'm losing you, losing you, losing you 'There's no need to worry,' I can still hear them say 'One born every minute, every hour, every day Take the weight off your back There's nothing you can do'
Benny Hill - Ernie ( The Fastest Milkman In The West) 11/12/1971 - 4 weeks at #1 - 17 weeks on chart You could hear the hoof beats pound As they raced across the ground And the clatter of the wheels As they spun round and round And he galloped into Market Street His badge upon his chest His name was Ernie And he drove the fastest milkcart in the west Now Ernie loved a widow A lady known as Sue She lived all alone in Linley Lane At number twenty two They said she was too good for him She was haughty, proud and chic But Ernie got his cocoa there Three times every week They called him Ernie (Ernie) And he drove the fastest milkcart in the west She said she'd like to bathe in milk He said alright sweetheart And when he finished work one night He loaded up the cart He said you wanted pasturised Coz pasturised is best She says Ernie I'll be happy If it comes up to me chest And that tickled old Ernie (Ernie) And he drove the fastest milkcart in the west Now Ernie had a rival An evil looking man Called Two Ton Ted from Teddington And he drove the bakers van He tempted her with his treacle tarts And his tasty wholemeal bread And when she saw the size Of his hot meat pies It very near turned her head She nearly swooned at his macaroon And he said now if you treat me right You'll have hot rolls evry morning And crumpets every night He knew once she'd sampled his layer cake He'd have his wicked way And all Ernie had to offer Was a pint of milk a day Poor Ernie (Ernie) And he drove the fastest milkcart in the west One lunchtime Ted saw Ernie's horse and cart outside her door It drove him mad to find it was still there at half past four And as he leaped down from of his van Hot blood through his veins did course And he went across to Ernie's cart And he didnarf kick his horse Who's name was Trigger (Trigger) And he pulled the fastest milkcart in the west Now Ernie rushed out into the street His goldtop in his hand He said if you want to marry susie You'll fight for her like a man Oh why don't we play cards for her He sneeringly replied And just to make it interesting We'll have a shilling on the side Now Ernie dragged him from his van And beneath the blazing sun They stood there face to face And Ted went for his bun But Ernie was to quick Things didn't go the way ted planned And a strawberry flavoured youghurt Sent it spinning from his hand Now Sue she ran between them And tried to keep them apart And Ernie pushed her aside And a rock cake caught him underneath his heart And he looked up in pained surprise As the concrete hardened crust Of a stale pork pie caught him in the eye And Ernie bit the dust Poor Ernie (Ernie) And he drove the fastest milkcart in the west Ernie was only fifty-two, he didn't want to die Now he's gone to make deliveries In that milkround in the sky Where the customers are angels And ferocious dogs are banned And a milkmans life is full of fun In that fairy dairy land But a woman's needs are many fold And Sue she married Ted But strange things happened on their wedding night As they lay in their bed Was that the trees a rustling Or the hinges of the gate Or Ernies ghostly goldtop a rattling in their crate They won't forget Ernie (Ernie) And he drove the fastest milkcart in the west

Skid Row - 18 And Life Ricky was a young boy, He had a heart of stone. Lived 9 to 5 and worked his fingers to the bone. Just barely got out of school, came from the edge of town. Fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down. He had no money, oooh no good at home. He walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone And now it's 18 and life You got it 18 and life you know Your crime is time and it's 18 and life to go (repeat above) Tequila in his heartbeat, His veins burned gasoline. It kept his motor running but it never kept him clean. They say he loved adventure, "Ricky's the wild one." He married trouble and had a courtship with a gun. Bang Bang Shoot 'em up, The party never ends. You can't think of dying when the bottle's your best friend And now it's chorus "Accidents will happen" they all heard Ricky say He fired his six-shot to the wind that blew a child away. chorus
