Lyrics for my Dead teen song webpage.
"Le Moribond" by Jacques Brel Seasons In the Sun (Original version) Adieu, Emile, my trusted friend, we've known each other since we were nine or ten. Together we climbed hills and trees, learned of love and A B Cs, skinned our hearts and skinned our knees. Adieu, Emile, it's hard to die when all the birds are singing in the sky. Now that the Spring is in the air Pretty girls are ev'rywhere. Think of me and I'll be there. Chorus: We had joy. We had sun. We had seasons in the sun, but the hills we would climb were just seasons out of time. Adieu, Papa, please pray for me. I was the black sheep of the family. You tried to teach me right from wrong. Too much wine and too much song, wonder how we got along. Adieu, Papa, it's hard to die when all the birds are singing in the sky. Now that the Spring is in the air Little children ev'rywhere. When you see them, I'll be there. Chorus Adieu, Francoise, my trusted wife, without you I'd have had a lonely life. You cheated lots of times but then, I forgave you in the end though your lover was my friend. Adieu, Francoise, it's hard to die when all the birds are singing in the sky. Now that spring is in the air With your lovers ev'rywhere; just be careful, I'll be there. All our lives we had fun. We had seasons in the sun, but the hills we would climb were just season out of time. Adieu, Emile. Adieu, Papa. Adieu, Francoise. All our lives, we had fun. We had seasons in the sun, but the hills that we climbed were just seasons out of time. All our lives, we had fun. We had seasons in the sun, but the stars we could reach were just starfish on the beach.

STRAIGHT A'S by Dead Kennedys words: Biafra. music: 6025 Sixteen, on the honor roll I wish that I was dead Parents hate me, I got zits And bruises round my head Pressure's on to get good grades So I can be like them Do my homework all the time I can't go out just then People they ain't friends at all They tease and suck me dry Yell at me when I fuck up And party while I cry I look so big on paper I feel so fucking small Wanna die and you don't care Just stride on down the hall Suicide, suicide Read the paper, wonder why Turn the light out, then you cry It's your fault, you made me die Touch me won't you touch me now So frozen I can't love When I was born my mama cried And picked me up with gloves Girls, they kick me in the eye Want answers to the tests When they get them they drive off And leave me home to rest Hold my head Make me warm Tell me I am loved Give me hope Let me cry Make me feel Give me touch The window's broken, bleeding screaming Lying in the hall I'm gone no one remembers me A picture on the wall 'He was such a bright boy The future in his hands...' Or a spineless human pinball Shot around by your demands Suicide, suicide Goin' to sleep and when I die You'll look up and realize Then look down and wipe your eyes Then go back to your stupid lives Aw shit.

St. Lawrence River - David Usher Little Songs Smells on the air See there it's crushing the final impression The stains on the paper Where words fell like water Unearth all the changes that never did matter I think it's beginning to freeze here Caught in the rage and the fire of things All the brightness that burns me I'm fumbling through like a child in the dark When the nakedness comes I am shocked by the colour the glorious weight of your skin Comes alive And I never thought we'd make it back so soon Might be nice But I knew you'd be your own destroyer Comes a time And I always thought I'd make it up to you Here please forgive me Could we escape all the bitterness piled upon bitterness Held in the face of the things that I don't understand Intellectualize over and over This helplessness suits us Funny how quiet has slipped to our corners Worn all our edges away You are watching breathing and baiting Wanting and warming and cautiously waiting For some simple signal to creep cross your conscience Uncover redemption and oh did I mention I carried you down to the St. Lawrence River The banks running dirty the water's beginning to freeze here Solid by morning And I'll freeze here Winter by morning Comes a lie And I never thought you'd get me back so soon Might be nice But it's only if my own destroyer Comes alive And I always knew I'd make it up to you I saw on your face such a curious grin As I let go your hand I was desperate to hold you again But you're sinking so deep in the water Outsmarted myself and so easily gave up what I wanted Solid by morning What I wanted Winter by morning Comes alive And I never thought you'd make it up so soon Night be nice But I always knew you're my destroyer Comes a time And I always thought I'd make it up to you Solid by morning And I'll freeze here Winter by morning
"Shannon" By Henry Gross "Another day is at end Mama says she's tired again No one can even begin to tell her I hardly know what to say But maybe it's better that way If Papa were here I'm sure he'd tell her Shannon is gone I heard she's drifted out to sea She always loved to swim away Maybe she'll find an island With a shady tree Just like the one in our backyard Mama tries hard to pretend That things will get better again Somehow she's keeping it all inside her But finally the tears fill our eyes And I know that somewhere tonight She knows how much we really miss her Shannon is gone I heard she's drifted out to sea She always loved to swim away Maybe she'll find an island With a shady tree Just like the one in our backyard"

Lloyd Price - Stagger Lee The night was clear, and the moon was yellow And the leaves came tumblin' down. . . I was standin' on the corner When I heard my bull dog bark.

San Angelo by Marty Robbins North of the border of Old Mexico I rode one day to the cowtown of San Angelo A hot sun was glowing, a hot breeze was blowing Still not as warm as the lips that I waited to kiss She sent a message a long time ago Secora had promised to meet me in San Angelo I was aware of the chance I was taking I was an outlaw but great was my love for this girl I must be with her I can't stay away Nights spent without her are lonely and so are the days If it means death then I'll have to chance it Only a few minutes more and she'll be at my side At ten o' clock in the morning I tied my horse and I started to walk down the street Where was Secora, had she forgotten This was the day and the hour that she wanted to meet But something is wrong with our plans and I fear death awaits me Here on this hot dusty street. Up on a housetop but still I can see There hides a man with a rifle, it's pointed at me I might escape from the man with a rifle But there are others just like him that I cannot see Back of each window the click of a gun Die if I stay and my love for her won't let me run Where is Secora, will my eyes see her Then in a moment she runs from a door down the street "Up on your horse", she is crying "Ride out of town it's a trap and they're waiting for you" But if I ride out, she must ride with me Then in a moment I know that our chances are gone For a bullet is well on its way and it finds my Secora She cries as she falls in my arms Over and over her soft lips did say "Now we're together, I won't let them take you away" one little sigh, her little lips tremble Then it was over, Secora had drifted away Tears dim my vision but plainly I see The ranger that killed her is standing there waiting for me I rise to meet him, my one thought it beat him He deserves death and I swear that this ranger will die I beat his draw and I shot him Shot him six times just as fast as the bullets could fly My gun is empty or more I would shoot him Now there are others just like him that want me to die Their bullets are coming my way, how they hurt when they hit me The pain makes me fall to the ground. Gone is my strength, just the will left to fight I hear the sound of the lead as it robs me of life If I must die, let me find Secora Let me hold on to her hand for the few moments left Blindly I search and it isn't in vain I touch the soft velvet hand and it eases the pain Life is no more but we're together Even in death she's my lover, it's over, goodbye
Stereotype by The Specials He's just a stereotype He drinks his age in pints He has girls every night But he doesn't really exist He spends his weekends with a load of blokes He forgets the punchline when he tells a joke He wants to stay out, he don't want to go home 'Til his nicotine fingers are stuffed down his throat He's just a stereotype He drinks his age in pints He drives home pissed at night And he listens to his stereo He blamed his fianc'e when he caught VD The doctor said no drink for seventeen weeks He wants to go out but he has to stay home Sit in and watch colour TV on his own He's just a stereotype He drinks his age in pints He drives home pissed at night And he listens to his stereo The tablets are finished, the cure is complete He hasn't had a drink now for seventeen weeks Seventeen pints, tonight is the night It goes straight to his head, he ends up in a fight Police chase him home through the dark rainy night Fluorescent jam sandwich with flashing blue light His mums waiting up, she hopes he's alright But he's wrapped round a lamp post on Saturday night He's just a stereotype He drinks his age in pints He has girls every night He doesn't really exist
Street Hassle by Lou Reed Waltzing matilda whipped out her wallet, The sexy boy smiled in dismay She took out four twenties 'cause she liked round figures, Everybody's a queen for a day Oh, babe, I'm on fire and you know how I admire your body why don't we slip away Although I'm sure you're certain, it's a rarity me flirtin' Sha-la-la-la, this way Oh, sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la Hey, baby, come on, let's slip away Luscious and gorgeous, oh what a hunk of muscle call out the national guard She creamed in her jeans as he picked up her means From off of the formica topped bar And cascading slowly, he lifted her wholly and boldly out of this world And despite people's derision proved to be more than diversion Sha-la-la-la, later on And then sha-la-la-la-la, he entered her slowly, And showed her where he was coming from And then sha-la-la-la-la, he made love to her gently, It was like she'd never ever come And then sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la, When the sun rose and he made to leave You know, sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la, Neither one regretted a thing Hey, that cunt's not breathing, I think she's had too much Of something or other, hey, man, you know what I mean I don't mean to scare you, but you're the one who came here and you're the one who's gotta take her when you leave I'm not being smart or trying to be cold on my part And I'm not gonna wear my heart on my sleeve But you know people get all emotional And sometimes, man, they just don't act rational they think they're just on tv Sha-la-la-la, man. Why don't you just slip her away You know, I'm glad that we met man, It really was nice talking And I really wish that there was a little more time to speak But you know it could be a hassle, trying to explain myself to a police officer About how it was that your old lady got herself stiffed And it's not like we could help, but there was nothing no one could do And if there was, man, you know I would have been the first But when someone turns that blue, Well, it's a universal truth And then you just know that bitch will never fuck again By the way, that's really some bad shit that you came to our place with But you ought to be more careful around the little girls It's either the best or it's the worst, and since I don't have to choose I guess I won't and I know this ain't no way to treat a guest But why don't you grab your old lady by the feet And just lay her out on the darkened street And by morning, she's just another hit and run You know, some people got no choice, And they can't never find a voice To talk with that they can even call their own So the first thing that they see that allows them the right to be Why they follow it, you know, it's called bad luck Believe me, that it's just a lie that's what she tells her friends 'cause the real song, the real song which she won't even admit to herself Beat narrow heart, the song lots of people know It's a painful song, It'll only say the truth It lasts for sad songs, Penny for a wish A wish won't make you a soldier A pretty kiss or a pretty face can't have it's way The tramps like us who were born to play Love is gone away, And there's no one here now And there's nothing left to say But, oh, how I miss you, baby Oh, baby, come on and slip away Come on, baby, why don't you slip away Love is gone away, Took the rings off my fingers And there's nothing left to say But, oh how, oh how I need you, baby Come on, baby, I need you baby Oh, please don't slip away I need your loving so bad, babe Please don't slip away

State Fair Singer: Doug Supernaw Writer: Mickey Cates Nineteen hundred seventy-three My second cousin Calvin and me We loaded down his old blue-green Corvair And headed for the State Fair Was mid-October and the autumn breeze Shook the colors out of the trees Time was passing but who where we to care We were headed for the State Fair Chorus: And I remember Calvin Reaching underneath the dash Pulling out that pack of cigarettes That he kept stashed For half the morning We blew smoke rings in the air Like two big fat Millionaires It happened way out on Route Twenty-nine Some drunk driver came across the yellow line Calvin's momma cried and his daddy sat and stared Life can sure be unfair It's been so long since that dark day I thought by now I'd have put the past away But just this morning I found myself back there Going to the State Fair
Marianne Faithfull - "Sally Free And Easy" Sally, free and easy, That should be her name. Sally, free and easy, That should be her name. Took a sailor's lovin' For a nursery game. Oh, the heart she gave him Was not made of stone. Oh, the heart she gave him Was not made of stone. It was sweet and hollow Like a honeycomb. Think I'll wait till morning, See the ensign down. Think I'll wait till sunrise, See the ensign down. See my coffin coming, To my burial groun'. Sally, free and easy, That should be her name. Sally, free and easy, That should be her name. Took a sailor's lovin', For a nursery game.
Cyndi Lauper - Sally's Pigeons When I was eight I had a friend With a pirate smile Make believe and play pretend We were innocent and wild Hopped a fence and slammed the gate Running down my alleyway In time to watch Sally's pigeons fly We loved to watch them dive and soar Circle in the sky Free as a bird from three to four And never knowing why Neighbors pulled their wash back in Put away my Barbie and Ken Look out overhead While Sally's pigeons fly I had a fool's confidence That the world had no boundaries But instincts and common sense Come in different quantities My heart began to Skip to the beat Of the boy next door She had her eye across the street On someone shy and tall We lived our dreams And challenged fate In tears she told me she was late And Sally let his pigeons out to fly... On the dresser sits a frame With a photograph Two little girls in ponytails Some twenty one years back She left one night with just a nod Was lost from some back alley job I close my eyes and Sally's pigeons fly She never saw those birds again And me, I can't remember when A pirate smile hasn't made me cry I close my eyes And Sally's pigeons fly...

Stairway To Heaven by Neil Sedaka Climb up way up high, Climb up way up high, Climb up way up high. Verse 1: Well-a well-a well-a heavenly angel I want you for my girl When I kissed your sweet, sweet lips I knew that you were out of this world Chorus: I'll build a stairway to heaven, I'll climb to the highest star I'll build a stairway to heaven, 'Cause heaven is where you are Verse 2: Well-a well-a well-a over the rainbow That's where I'm gonna climb Way up high where the bluebirds fly I'm gonna love you all the time REPEAT CHORUS Music break CHORUS Well-a well-a well-a I gotta be going, Gonna leave the world behind Every day in a heavenly way, You're gonna drive me outta my mind REPEAT CHORUS I'll build a stairway to heaven 'Cause heaven is where you are Climb up way up high [repeat to fade]
