Lyrics for my Dead teen song webpage.
Paint It Black By Jagger/Richards I see a red door and I want it painted black No colors anymore I want them to turn black I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes I have to turn my head until my darkness goes I see a line of cars and they're all painted black With flowers and my love both never to come back I see people turn their heads and quickly look away Like a new born baby it just happens ev'ry day I look inside myself and see my heart is black I see my red door and it has been painted black Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue I could not foresee this thing happening to you If I look hard enough into the settin' sun My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes I see a red door and I want it painted black No colors anymore I want them to turn black I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes I have to turn my head until my darkness goes Hmm, hmm, hmm,... I wanna see it painted, painted black Black as night, black as coal I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black Yeah!
Patches - Dickie Lee Down by the river that flows by the coal yards. Stands wooden houses with shutters torn down There lives a girl everybody calls Patches Patches my darling of Old Shanty town We plan to marry when June brought the summer I couldn't wait to make Patches my bride Now I don't see how that ever can happen My folks say No, and my heart breaks inside Patches oh what can I do I swear I'll always love you But a girl from that place would just bring me disgrace So my folks won't let me love you Each night I cry as I think of that shanty And pretty Patches there watching the door She dosn't know that I can't come to see her Patches must think that I love her no more I hear a neighbor tellin my father He said a girl name of Patches was found Floating face down in that dirty old river That flows by the coal yards in Old Shanty Town Patches oh what can I do I swear I'll always love you It may not be right But I'll join you tonight Patches I'm coming to you.
Patches - Clarence Carter SPOKEN: I was born and raised down in Alabama On a farm way back up in the woods I was so ragged the kids would call me patches Papa used to kid me about it Of course deep down inside He was thinkin he had done all he could do My papa was a great old man I can see him with a shovel in his hand See, education he never had But he did wonders when the time got bad A little money from the crops he raised Barely paid the bills we made Oh life had kicked him down to the plow When he tried to get up life would kick him back down One day papa called me to his dyin bed Put his hands on my shoulders And in tears he said Patches, I'm depending on you son To pull the family through My son, it's all left up to you SPOKEN: Two days later papa passed away I became a man that day So I told mama I was gonna quit school But she said that was dad's strictest rule So every morning 'fore I went to school I fed the chickens and I chopped wood too Sometimes I felt that I couldn't go on I wanted to leave this but I wanted a home But I always remembered what my daddy said With tears in his eyes on his dyin bed He said, "Patches, I'm depending on you son I tried to do my best, It's up to you to do the rest SPOKEN: But then one day a strong rain came And washed all the crops away And at the age of thirteen I thought I was carrying The weight of the whole world on my shoulders And you know, mama knew what I was going through, Cause Everyday I had to work the fields Cause that's the only way we got our meals You see, I was the oldest of a family And everybody else depended on me Every night I heard my mama pray Lord, give him the strength to face another day Though years have passed and all the kids are gone I aimed to take my mama to a brand new home God knows people that I shed a tear My daddy's voice helped me through the years Sayin, "Patches, I'm depending on you son To pull the family through My son, it's all left up to you I could still hear papa when he'd say Patches, I'm depending on you son I tried to do my best It's up to you to do the rest".

The Pickup - Mark Dinning I made a date on the dare of a friend If I'd known how it would end, I'd have turned around and ran away right then From the pickup I was a boy looking for fun She looked so lost and all alone And I didn't know my heart would be won By the pickup How could know her lips were so warm? Or how big I'd feel with her in my arms? How could I know? How could I see? I'd fall in love with her, and she would love me I should have told her I loved her right then I couldn't face all of my friends So I told my darling I couldn't see her again I lost the pickup The morning papers told how she died Jumped from a bridge, suicide And nobody knows that the heart in me cries For the pickup For the pickup
Pizza Man - National Lampoon My Johnnie was a biker, So my parents hated him. We used to meet secretly Out behind the gym. Chorus We used to go for Yoo-Hoos And gooey pizza pie I loved him (she loved him) I loved him (we loved him) Laugh? I thought I'd die ... They said I couldn't see him, My love for him was wrong. His bike was much too noisy, His sideburns were too long. I said farewell to Johnnie, Over one last pizza pie I hid my tears and even laughed When Johnnie said good-bye He saw two bike lights up the road And thought he'd try his luck. He tried to cut between them. He never knew it was a truck. I ran out on the highway But I couldn't find my guy. Between the deisel's headlights SOMETHING LOOKED LIKE PIZZA PIE That's why I stay at home now And don't go out with boys, 'Cause when they order pizza I hear my Johnnie's voice. With mushrooms, with mushrooms, with mushrooms, with mushrooms. Love that pizza pie Anchovies (etc) Love it till I die Pepperoni (etc) Oh that pizza pie Green peppers (etc) love it till I die.
Pieces of April - Three Dog Night (D. Loggins) from the album The Best of Three Dog Night April gave us springtime and the promise of the flowers And the feeling that we both shared and the love that we called ours We knew no time for sadness, that's a road we each had crossed We were living a time meant for us, and even when it would rain we would laugh it off. I've got pieces of April, I keep them in a memory bouquet I've got pieces of April, it's a morning in May We stood on the crest of summer, beneath an oak that blossomed green Feeling as I did in April, not really knowing what it means But it must be then that you stand beside me now to make me feel this way Just as I did in April, but it's a morning in May. I've got pieces of April, I keep them in a memory bouquet I've got pieces of April, but it's a morning in May I've got pieces of April, I keep them in a memory bouquet I've got pieces of April, but it's a morning in May
TOADIES - "Possum Kingdom" Make up your mind Decide to walk with me Around the lake tonight Around the lake tonight By my side By my side I'm not gonna lie I'll not be a gentleman Behind the boathouse I'll show you my dark secret I'm not gonna lie I want you for mine My blushing bride My lover, be my lover, yeah... Don't be afraid I didn't mean to scare you So help me, Jesus I can promise you You'll stay as beautiful With dark hair And soft skin...forever Forever Make up your mind Make up your mind And I'll promise you I will treat you well My sweet angel So help me, Jesus (hey, hey, hey) Give it up to me Give it up to me Do you wanna be My angel? So help me! Be my angel Be my angel Do you wanna die? I promise you I will treat you well My sweet angel So help me, Jesus Jesus Jesus Jesus...
