She Put The Sad In All His Songs

Original and similar lyrics
Words and Music by Mac McAnally and Robert Byrne He was a good time, beer bar picker until the night she came along. He gave up his women and his liquor, and she put the sad in all his songs. Something about hermade him sorry. She was holy in his eyes. She had him bound and hypnotized. She put the sad in all his songs. She put the blues in his guitar. She took what he had and she made it wrong. She put the sad in all his songs. She was the rattle snake that bit him. SHe was the blow fromup behind. She thought the tear in his eye just might fit him, and he was the last thing on her mind. She put the sad in all his songs. She put the blues in his guitar. She took what he had and she made it wrong. She put the sad in all his songs. She put the sad in all his songs.

JANET JACKSON "Janet"
Sittin over here Starin in your face With lust in my eyes Sure don't give a damn and ya Don't know that I've been dreamin of ya in My fantasies Never once you looked at me Don't even realize that I'm wantin you To fulfill my needs Think what you want Let your mind free Run free to a place no one dares to How many night I've laid in bed excited over you I've closed my eyes and thought of us a hundred different ways I've gotten there so many times I wonder how bout you Day and night Night and day All I've got to say is [CHORUS:] If I was your girl Oh the things I'd do to you I'd make you call out my name I'd ask who it belongs to If I was your woman The things I'd do to you But I'm not So I can't Then I won't But If I was your girl Allow me some time to play with your mind And you'll get there again and again Close your eyes and imagine my body undressed Take your time cuz we've got all night, oooh You on the rise as you're touchin my thighs and Let me know what you like If you like I'll go Down da down down down da down down I'll hold you in my hand and baby Your smooth and shiny Feels so good against my lips sugar I want you so bad I can Taste your love right now baby Day and night Night and day All i've got to say is [CHORUS (2x)] I've laid in bed excited over you One hundred different way I've thought ya Many, maaany (day and night, night and day) Allll I got to say is [CHORUS (3x)]

Breakup Song

JESSICA HARP "A Woman Needs"
You've heard a thousand breakup songs Well, here's a thousand and one Yeah, you put me to the test with all your BS but I'm done I can't say I'm real sorry your things are thrown out in the yard If that makes you feel mad then you probably shouldn't look at your car 'Cause you'll see exactly what you meant to me You'll never touch me again Go on complain to your friends I thought you weren't a crier Liar, liar pants on fire Who wasted time in my space Spent every dime that I made Running around with every cheap girl in this town Thought you had good, but you were wrong Here's your break up song I can see your daddy never taught you how to be a man Every time you took me out we had to bring Larry, Jerry, and Dan You got your good looks, but they sure didn't come from your mom Yeah, her sweet little boy who couldn't possibly do no wrong But she'll see exactly what you did to me You'll never touch me again Go on complain to your friends I thought you weren't a crier Liar, liar pants on fire Who wasted time in my space Spent every dime that I made Running around with every cheap girl in this town Thought you had good, but you were wrong Here's your break up song Playing on the radio It's everywhere you go If you don't want to hear or see You probably shouldn't watch TV Because there I'll be still singing your break up song Yeah you'll see, exactly what you meant to me You'll never touch me again Go on complain to your friends I thought you weren't a crier Liar, liar pants on fire Who wasted time in my space Spent every dime that I made Running around with every cheap girl in this town Thought you had good, but you were wrong Every girl I know could sing along Here's your break up song You've heard a thousand breakup songs Well, here's a thousand and one

Good Thing's Gone Bad

JAMES OTTO "Shake What God Gave Ya"
Someone's been steppin' in While you've been steppin' out You thought you were slick, my friend You thought you had it figured out Honey But she was tired of bein' used Heard your last bad excuse Never thought she'd cut you loose Don't look so surprised You know you had it comin' If you hadn't have stayed out all night long (You wouldn't be sittin' here wonderin' why) (Waitin' by the phone with a tear in your eye) Runnin' all over town doin' her wrong (Actin' like you ain't got a thing to lose) (Thinkin' you're a player but you're playin' a fool) Maybe you could've held on to what you had (Should've treated her better when you had the chance) Good thing's gone bad, yeah, it has I know when you come and go And I know how long you'll be But don't look across the street For sympathy 'Cause you're not gonna get it Well, you're such a busy man She don't seem to fit your plans I'll take her off your hands Don't worry 'bout it, brother You know I got you covered If you hadn't have stayed out all night long (You wouldn't be sittin' here wonderin' why) (Waitin' by the phone with a tear in your eye) Runnin' all over town doin' her wrong (Actin' like you ain't got a thing to lose) (Thinkin' you're a player but you're playin' a fool) Maybe you could've held on to what you had (Should've treated her better when you had the chance) Good thing's gone bad, yeah, it has If you hadn't have stayed out all night long (You wouldn't be sittin' here wonderin' why) Runnin' all over town doin' her wrong (Waitin' by your phone with a tear in your eye) Maybe you could've held on to what you had If you hadn't have stayed out all night long (You wouldn't be sittin' here wonderin' why) Runnin' all over town doin' her wrong (Waitin' by your phone with a tear in your eye) Maybe you could've held on to what you had (Should've treated her better when you had the chance) Good thing's gone bad Good thing's gone bad

Not Without Love (The Benediction)

JIMMY NEEDHAM "Not Without Love"
I tried Lord I tried Lord I tried hard to be Your good little boy Chin up, head high All zeal and no joy Thinking all my good deeds could please Jesus Boy, was I wrong Though I knew the right songs, all my cymbals and gongs played the melodies wrong And it wasn't long 'til I saw my disease A life spent wanting to please On hands and knees To make right, to appease God help me please This can't be Christianity, it can't be The whole thing's like insanity Where's the rest of eternal security? Where's the hope of a God big enough to cope with all my hang-ups and insecurities? Certainly this isn't breathing My chest burning and heaving It's like my pulse is ceasing Like my heart quits beating Yet this I recall to mind and therefore I have hope: You died, Lord You died, Lord Assuredly, like the coming of the dawn, the Father's love song goes on Drowning out my bitter songs And breaking through walls and barriers Christ swoops in, removes sin, picks up His bride and carries her So I can sing in agreement with the King this thing: There's only one thing that pleases the Father The God-man on the tree in the midst of the scoffers Now I finally see that Christ is what Christ offers And I'm finally free in the love of the Father

I Was Hoping

ALANIS MORISSETTE "Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie"
as we were taking outside it was cold we were shivering yet warmed by the subject matter my wife is in the next room we've been having troubles you know please don't tell her or anyone but I need to talk to somebody you said 'wouldn't it be a shame if I knew how great I was five minutes before I died i'd be filled with such regret before I took my last breath' and I said 'you're willing to tell me this now and you're not going to die any time soon' and I said I haven't been eating chicken or meat or anything and you said yes but you've been wearing leather and laughed and said we're at the top of the food chain and yes you're a fine woman and I cringed I was hoping I was hoping we could heal each other I was hoping I was hoping we could be raw together we left the restaurant where the head waiter (in his 60's) said 'good-bye sir thank you for your business sir you're successful and established sir and we like the frequency with which you dine here sir and your money' and when I walked by they said 'thank you too dear' I was all pigtails and cords and there was a day when I would've said something like 'hey dude I could buy and sell this place so kiss it' I too once thought I was owed something I was hoping I was hoping we could challenge each other I was hoping I was hoping we could crack each other up I too thought that when proved wrong I lost somehow I too once thought life was cruel it's a cycle really you think i'm withdrawing and guilt tripping you I think you're insensitive and I don't feel heard and I said do you believe we are fundamentally judgmental fundamentally evil and you said yes I said I don't believe in revenge in right or wrong good or bad you said 'well what about that man that I saw handcuffed in the emergency room bleeding after beating his kid and she threw a shoe at his head. I think what he did was wrong and I would've had a hard time feeling compassion for him' I had to watch my tone for fear of having you feel judged. I was hoping I was hoping we could dance together I was hoping I was hoping we could be creamy together
