City girls just seem to find out early

How to open doors with just a smile;

A rich old man, and she won't have to worry:

She'll dress up all in lace and go in style;

Late at night a big old house gets lonely,

I guess ev'ry form of refuge has its price,

And it breaks her heart to think her love is only

Given to a man with hands as cold as ice.

So she tells him she must go out for the evening,

To comfort an old friend who's feelin' down,

But he knows where she's goin' as she's leavin':

She's headed for the cheatin' side of town.

You can't hide your lyin' eyes,

And your smile is a thin disguise;

I thought by now you'd realize

There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes.

Disarm you with a smile

And cut you like you want me to

Cut that little child

Inside of me and such a part of you

Ooh, the years burn

 

I used to be a little boy

So old in my shoes

And what I choose is my choice

Whats a boy supposed to do?

The killer in me is the killer in you

My love

I send this smile over to you

She keeps Moët et Chandon

In her pretty cabinet,

"Let them eat cake," she says,

Just like Marie-Antoinette.

A built-in remedy

For Kruschev and Kennedy,

At any time an invitation

You can't decline...

Caviar and cigarettes,

Well-versed in etiquette,

Extraordinarily nice,

She's a killer queen,

Gunpowder, gelatine,

Dynamite with a laser-beam,

Guaranteed to blow your mind,

Any time...

A cigarette that bares a lipstick's traces

An airline ticket to romantic places

And still my heart has wings

These foolish things remind me of you.

A tinkling piano in the next apartment

Those stumblin' words that told you what my heart meant

A fairground's painted swings

These foolish things

Remind me of you.

You came,

You saw,

You conquered me

When you did that to me

I knew somehow this had to be

The winds of March that made my heart a dancer

A telephone that rings but who's to answer

Oh, how the ghost of you clings

These foolish things

Remind me of you

All my life I've been searching for something

Something never comes never leads to nothing

Nothing satisfies but I'm getting close

Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

All night long I dream of the day

When it comes around then it's taken away

Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most

Feel it come to life when I see your ghost

 

And I'm done, done onto the <b>next</b> one

Done, done and I'm onto the <b>next</b> one

Done, done and I'm onto the <b>next</b> one

Done, done and I'm onto the <b>next</b> one

etc

The feeling has gone only you and I

It means nothing to me

This means nothing to me

Oh, Vienna

 

The music is weaving

Haunting notes, pizzicato strings

The rhythm is calling

Alone in the night as the daylight brings

A cool empty silence

The warmth of your hand and a cold grey sky

It fades to the distance

Dark in the city, night is a wire

Steam in the subway, earth is a fire

Do-do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do

Woman you want me, give me a sign

And catch my breathing even closer behind

Do-do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do

 

In touch with the ground

I'm on the hunt I'm after you

Smell like I sound, I'm lost in a crowd

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Straddle the line, in discord and rhyme

I'm on the hunt I'm after you

Mouth is alive with juices like wine

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Moments of sadness, moments of guilt

Stains on the memory, stains on the quilt

Chapter of incident, chapter and verse

Sub-heading chronic, paragraph worse

 

Lost in the limelight, backed in the blaze

Did it for nine pence, those were the days

Give me my acre and give me my plough

Tell me tomorrow, don't bother me now

Marchin' down O'Connell Street with the Starry Plough on high

There goes the Citizen Army with their fists raised in the sky

Leading them is a mighty man with a mad rage in his eye

"My name is James Connolly - I didn't come here to die

But to fight for the rights of the working man and the small farmer too

To protect the proletariat from the bosses and their screws

So hold on to your rifles, boys, don't give up your dream

Of a Republic for the working class, economic liberty."

I was a miner

I was a docker

I was a railway man

Between the wars

I raised a family

In times of austerity

With sweat at the foundry

Between the wars

 

I paid the union and as times got harder

I looked to the government to help the <b>working</b> man

And they brought prosperity down at the armoury

"We're arming for peace me boys"

Between the wars

Now Main Street's whitewashed windows and vacant stores

Seems like there ain't nobody wants to come down here no more

They're closing down the textile mill across the railroad tracks

Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back

to your hometown

Your hometown

Your hometown

Your hometown

I loved you for your beauty

but that doesn't make a fool of me:

you were in it for your beauty too

and I loved you for your body

there's a voice that sounds like God to me

declaring, declaring, declaring that your body's really you

And I loved you when our love was blessed

and I love you now there's nothing left

but sorrow and a sense of overtime

and I missed you since the place got wrecked

And I just don't care what happens next

looks like freedom but it feels like death

it's something in between, I guess

it's closing time

I was twenty one years when I wrote this song

Im twenty two now, but I wont be for long

People ask when will you grow up to be a man

But all the girls I <b>loved</b> at school

Are already pushing prams

 

I <b>loved</b> you then as I love you still

Tho I put you on a pedestal,

They put you on the pill

I don't feel bad about letting you go

I just feel sad about letting you know

Still so young to travel so far, old enough to know who you are

Wise enough to carry the scars

Without any blame, there's no one to blame

Easy to forget what you learn, waiting for the thrill to return

Feeling your desire burn as you're drawn to the flame

When your seven worlds collide

Whenever I am by your side

And dust from a distant sun

Will shower over everyone.

 

And I'm lying on a table, washed out in a flood

Like a Christian fearing vengeance from above

I don't pretend to know what you want

But I offer love

And seven worlds collide

Whenever I am by your side

And dust from a distant sun

Will shower over everyone

In my eyes

Indisposed

In disguise

As no one knows

Hides the face

Lies the snake

The sun

In my disgrace

Boiling heat

Summer stench

neath the black

The sky looks dead

Call my name

Through the cream

And Ill hear you

Scream again

 

Black hole sun

Wont you come

And wash away the rain

Black hole sun

Wont you come

Wont you come

Ride the snake, ride the snake

To the lake, the ancient lake, baby

The snake is long, seven miles

Ride the snake...he's old, and his skin is cold

 

The west is the best

The west is the best

Get here, and we'll do the rest

 

The blue bus is callin' us

The blue bus is callin' us

Driver, where you taken' us

(Go West) Life is peaceful there

(Go West) In the open air

(Go West) Baby you and me

(Go West) This is our destiny (Aah)

 

(Go West) Sun in wintertime

(Go West) We will do just fine

(Go West) Where the skies are blue

(Go West) this is what we're gonna do

 

There where the air is free

We'll be (We'll be) what we want to be (Aah aah aah aah)

Now if we make a stand (Aah)

We'll find (We'll find) our promised land (Aah)

Knew the time to leave had come when you pointed out your ring

Never could see what was in this matrimony thing

<b>Baby, baby, baby</b> you sure made a noise when I left

And your father started shouting lest you ironed my shirts

'fore I left

Would've liked to explain first but it was a split decision thing

Couldn't see me settling down with a mortgage and a kid

Now I hear you've been looking for me

Combing every single inch

You'll probably find me in Hyde Park

Try the hotel first then a bench

<b>Baby, baby, baby</b> I've changed my address

I didn't mean to make you cry but I know it's for the best

<b>Baby, baby, baby</b> I've changed my address

It's OK being in love girl, but then fun is second best

You've done too much

much too young

Now you're married with a kid

when you could be having fun with me

You've done too much

much too young

Now you're married with a son

when you should be having fun with me

Ain't he cute?

No he ain't

He's just another burden

on the welfare state

You've done too much

much too young

Now you're married with a kid

when you could be having fun with me

Call me immature

Call me a poser

I'd love to spread manure in your bed of roses

Don't want to be rich

Don't want to be famous

But I'd really hate to have the same name as you

If you are what you say you are, a superstar

Then have no fear, the camera's here

And the microphones

And they wanna know, oh oh oh yeah

 

Yeah, uh

A fresh cool young Lu'

Tryna catch his microphone check 2, 1, 2

Wanna believe my own hype but it's too untrue

The world brought me to my knees, what have you bring you?

Did you improve on the design? Did you do somethin' new?

Well your name ain't on the guest list, who bring you?

You! The more <b>famous</b> person you come through

And the sexy lady next to you, you come too

And then they hit me

Standin' outside of heaven waitin' for god to come and get me

I'm too uncouth

Unschooled to the rules and too gum shoe

Too much of a new comer and too un-cool

Like Shadow and Lavelle, I battle with it well

Tho I need holiday like lady who sung "Blue"

Go back, whatever you did you undo

Heavy as heaven

The devil on me, two ton's too

 

Superstar - Lupe Fiasco.

There was a little old <b>lady</b>, who was walking down the road

She was struggling with bags from Tesco

There were people from the city having lunch in the park

I believe that it's called al fresco

Then a kid came along to offer a hand

 

But before she had time to accept it

hits her over the head, doesn't care if she's dead

Cause he's got all her jewellery and wallet

 

You might laugh you might frown

walking round London town

 

LDN - Lily Allen.
