Lyrics for my Dead teen song webpage.
Leader Of The Pack - The Shangri-Las (Spoken) Is she really going out with him? Oh, there she is. Let's ask her. Betty, is that Jimmy's ring you're wearing? Mm-hmm Gee, it must be great riding with him Is he picking you up after school today? Uh-uh By the way, where'd you meet him? I met him at the candy store He turned around and smiled at me You get the picture? (Yes, we see) That's when I fell for (the leader of the pack) My folks were always putting him down (down, down) They said he came from the wrong side of town (Whatcha mean when ya say that he came from the wrong side of town?) They told me he was bad But I knew he was sad That's why I fell for (the leader of the pack) I had to tell my Jimmy we're through (Whatcha mean when ya say that ya better go find somebody new?) He stood there and asked me why But all I could do was cry I'm sorry I hurt you (the leader of the pack) (Spoken) He sort of smiled and kissed me goodbye The tears were beginning to show As he drove away on that rainy night I begged him to go slow But whether he heard, I'll never know Look out! Look out! Look out! Look out! I felt so helpless, what could I do? Remembering all the things we'd been through In school they all stop and stare I can't hide the tears, but I don't care I'll never forget him (the leader of the pack) (Gone..) The leader of the pack - now he's gone... The leader of the pack - now he's gone... The leader of the pack - now he's gone... The leader of the pack - now he's gone...
Last Kiss - J. Frank Wilson [Chorus] Oh where oh where can my baby be The Lord took her away from me She's gone to heaven soI got to be good So I can see my baby when I leave this world We were out on a date in my daddy's car We hadn't driven very far There in the road straight up ahead A car was stalled the engine was dead I couldn't stop so I swerved to the right I'll never forget the sound that night The screaming tires the busting glass The painful scream that I heard last [Chorus] When I woke up the rain was pouring down There were people standing all around Somethign warm flowing through my eyes But somehow I found my baby that night I lifted her head she looked at me and said Hold me darling just a little while I held her close I kissed her our last kiss I found the love that I knew i have missed Well now she's gone even though I hold her tight I lost my love my life that night [Chorus] Woh (x4) Ohh (x4)
Laurie (Strange Things Happen) - Dickey Lee Last night at the dance I met Laurie So lovely and warm An angle of a girl Last night I fell in love with Laurie Strange things happen in this world As I walked her home she said it was her birthday I pulled her close and said Will I see you anymore And suddenly she asked for my sweater And said that she was very very cold I kissed her goodnight at her door and started home Then thought about my sweater And went right back and said I knocked at her door And a man appeared I told him why i'd come And he said You're wrong son You weren't with my daughter How can you be so cruel To come to me this way My daughter left this world on her birthday She died a year ago today A strage force drew me to the graveyard I stood in the cold I saw the shadows gleam And then I saw my sweater Lying there upon her grave Strange things happen in this world
Leilani - Hoodoo Gurus (D. Faulkner / J. Baker / K. Rendall / R. Radalj) Somewhere on a South Pacific island Sits a young man staring at the surf. His native girlfriend died a death quite violent A tribal sacrifice made to the earth. She was brown, her hair was black, her eyes were blue. A chief's daughter, Leilani was her name. She and her young man made a handsome two But lava tore them both apart again. Leilani, don't go to the volcano (he'd say). They were saving for a little hut, She collected sea-shells every day. Everynight they'd share a cigarette But The ancient, angry gods got in the way. Leilani, don't go to the volcano (he'd plead). (CEREMONY:) Katoomba, Hey! Macumbah, Ho! Umgawah! Hey! Ho! Hey-eh! Ah... Leilani - crula-bula-ulladulla-wok-a-tai Aba-laba-laba, Hut! Leilani-nevageta-huta-tera-cota-tile Aba-laba-laba Hut! Umgawah!!! Still the young man sits upon the beach, He's staring misty-eyed out into space. He's thinking about his girlfriend (of late, deceased), At least her death had purpose; now his life is a waste! Leilani, don't go to the volcano (he'd beg her)
The Ledge - The Replacements All eyes look up to me High above the filthy streets Heed no bullhorn when it calls Watch me fly and die, watch me fall I'm the boy they can't ignore, For the first time in my life, I'm sure All the love sent up high to pledge Won't reach the ledge Wind blows cold from the west I smell coffee, I smell doughnuts for the press (on their breath?) A girl that I knew once years ago Is tryin' to be reached on the phone I'm the boy she can't ignore, for the first time in my life, I'm sure All the love sent up high to pledge... (Repeat) Priest kneels silent, all is still Policeman reaches from the sill Watch him, watch him try his best There'll be no medal pinned to his chest I'm the boy they couldn't ignore, for the first time in my life, I'm sure (Repeat) I'm the boy for the last time in my life All the love that they pledge For the last time will not reach the ledge

Leah - Roy Orbison Words and music by Roy Orbison Le-Leah, Leah! Le-Leah, Leah! Here I go, From the hut to the boat, to the sea For Leah. Ah-hah, I gotta go diving in the bay, Gotta get a lot of oysters, find some pearls today, To make a pretty necklace for Leah, Le-e-ah. I've gotta go deep and find the ones just right -- I'll bet my Leah'll be surprised tonight. I'll place the pearls around the only girl for me, Le-e-ah. But something's wrong, I cannot move around -- My leg is caught, it's pulling me down, But I'll keep my hand shut tight, for if they find me, They'll find the pearl for Leah. And now it's over, I'm awake at last -- Old heartaches and memories from the past. It was just another dream about my lost love, 'Bout Le-e-ah. Le-Leah, Leah! Le-Leah, Leah! Here I go, Back to sleep, and in my dreams, I'll dream With Leah, Leah, Le-ah!
The Legend Of Tom Dooley Performed by The Kingston Trio - 1958 Through out history There have been many songs Written about the eternal triangle This next one tells the story of Mr. Grayson A beautiful woman and a condemed man Named Tom Dooley When the sun rises tomorrow Tom Dooley must hang Hang down your head Tom Dooley Hang down your head and cry Hang down your head Tom Dooley Poor boy, you're bound to die I met her on the mountain There I took her life Met her on the mountain Stabbed her with my knife This time tomorrow, reckon where I'll be Hadn't it been for Grayson I'd been in Tennesse This time tomorrow, reckon where I'll be Down in some lonesome valley Hanging on a white oak tree
David Geddes - The Last Game Of The Season He's just the blind man in the bleachers To the local home town fans And he sits beneath the speakers Way back in the stands And he listens to the play by play He's just waiting for one name He wants to hear his son get in the game But the boy's not just a hero He's strictly second team Tho he runs each night for touchdowns In his father's sweetest dreams He's gonna be a star some day Tho you might never tell But the blind man in the bleachers knows he will And the last game of the season is a Friday night at home And no one knows the reason but the blind man didn't come And his boy looks kinda nervous Sometimes turns around and stares Just as tho' he sees the old man sittin' there The local boys are tryin' but they slowly lose their will Another player's down and now He's carried from the field At halftime in the locker room The kid goes off alone And no one sees him talkin' on the phone The game's already started When he gets back to the team And half the crowd can hear his coach yell "Where the hell you been?" "Just gettin' ready for the second half," Is all he'll say "Cause now you're gonna let me in to play." Without another word, he turns and runs into the game And through the silence on the field Loudspeakers call his name It'll make the local papers How the team came from behind When they saw him playin' his heart to win And when the game was over The coach asked him to tell What was it he was thinkin' of That made him play so well "You knew my dad was blind," he said "Tonight he passed away" "It's the first time that my father's seen me play

Devotchkas - Live Fast... Die Young Boy with no name, he was only 18 Never lughed to much Hated the monarchy Yes he hated the queen Real antisocial and he acted real mean Was he in a dream? Dowsing her lights was in In his dreams Rumpa, rumpa, rumpa, hey, hey Rumpa, rumpa Rumpa, rumpa, rumpa, hey, hey Rumpa, rumpa So full of hate and full of fury To tell you a story You would say He was a one man jury Catalogue of anger posted through your door Your door, your door, your door A chance would come to even the score Stole a gun and he stole a car Oh boy, oh boy With a pretty doll he would go far Down to london where the bright lights are Lights are, lights are, lights are And i say The mission his decision He took out the gun On that fateful day The winds blew cold , the sky turned grey He pointed the gun And then he pulled the trigger The message that he would now deliver
Better Than Ezra - "A Lifetime" Allie woke up 8AM Graduation day. Got into a car, And crashed along the way. When we arrived late to the wake, Stole the urn while they Looked away, And drove to the beach 'Cause I knew you'd want it That way. And you were standing On the hood of the car Singing out loud When the sun came up. And I know I wasn't right, But it felt so good. And your mother didn't mind, Like I thought she would. And that REM song was playing In my mind. And three and a half minutes Felt like a lifetime It felt like a lifetime And you move like water I could drown in you. And I fell so deep once, Till you pulled me through You would tell me "No one is allowed to be so proud They never reach out When they're giving up." And I know I wasn't right, But it felt so good. And your mother didn't mind, Like I thought she would. And that REM song was playing In my mind. And three and a half minutes Felt like a lifetime Are you sitting in the lights? Or combing your hair again, And talking in rhymes? Are you sitting in the lights? When I got home, heard the phone, Your parents had arrived. And your dad set his jaw Your mom just smiled and sighed. But they left soon And I went to my room. Played that disc that you'd given me, And I shut my eyes Swear I could hear the sea. When we were standing On the hood of your car Singing out loud when the sun came up. And I know I wasn't right, But it felt so good. And your mother didn't mind, Like I thought she would. And that REM song was playing In my mind. And three and a half minutes, Three and a half minutes, Felt like a lifetime.
Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty Hey Louisiana woman Mississippi man We get together every time we can The Mississippi River can't keep us apart There's too much love in the Mississippi heart Too much love in this Louisiana heart See the alligators all a waitin' nearby Soon or later they know I'm gonna try When she waves from the bank don't you know I know It's goodbye fishin' line see you while ago With a Louisiana woman waitin' on the other side The Mississippi River don't look so wide Louisiana woman Mississippi man... Well I thought I'd been loved but I never had Till I was wrapped In the arms of a Mississippi man When he holds me close it feels almost Like another hurricane just ripped the coast If he can't come to me I'm gonna go to him That Mississippi River Lord I'm gonna swim Hey Louisiana woman Mississippi man... Well Mississippi River Lord it's one mile wide And I gotta get me to the other side Mississippi man I'm losin' my mind Gotta have your loving one more time I'm gonna jump in the river and here go Too bad alligator you swim too slow Hey Louisiana woman Mississippi man... There's too much love in the Mississippi heart Too much love in this Louisiana heart There's too much love in the Mississippi heart Too much love in this Louisiana heart
