ALABAMA lyrics - The Closer You Get...

Dixieland Delight

Original and similar lyrics
Rollin' down a backwoods Tennessee byway, one arm on the wheel, holdin' my lover with the other: a sweet, soft, Southern thrill. Worked hard all week; got a little jingle on a Tennessee Saturday night. Couldn't feel better: I'm together with my Dixieland Delight. Chorus: Spend my dollar; parked in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight; hold her uptight; make a little lovin', a little turtle dovin' on a Mason Dixon night. Fits my life, oh, so right: My Dixieland Delight. Whitetail buck deer munchin' on clover, redtail hawk settin' on a limb, a chubby old groundhog, croakin' bullfrog, free as the feelin' in the wind. Home grown country girl gonna give me a whirl on a Tennessee Saturday night. Lucky as a seven livin' in heaven with my Dixieland Delight. Chorus x2 Repeat first verse

Saturday People

PROZZAK "Saturday People"
Saturday People Hey ravers did you know that I was once where you are now Flashback to subway ride a midnight escape to the underground Calling all sweet dreamers of the world No matter what they take from you, your dreams are just a Saturday away... Saturday people, waiting around their whole lives for the weekend to come Saturday people, sitting in portable classrooms a-twirling their thumbs, ho hum Maybe you've seen them, their heads hanging low on their desk stumble in on a Monday Can't hardly believe them, sunglasses, ecstasy, vodka and tonic recovery But hang on, pretty soon it'll be Friday afternoon We'll be running for cover from a world going nowhere On a Saturday night With no reason to be just to be somebody somewhere On a Saturday night Girls and boys...Saturday Make some noise...Saturday Girls and boys...Saturday Pretty soon it'll be Monday morning In my opinion, there's too many lives being wasted on missing the fun Didn't or did ya, ambition eventually leads to executive breakdown Rave party sequel, hop on a bus magic trip to industrial building So hang on, it's been a long ride but ya know we'll be there soon Chorus Have you seen Natalie Indigo, we were supposed to meet three hours ago I know...oh no Was she caught up in the corporate undertow, was she too tired to get up and go Guess sooner or later everybody gives in So sad when life takes your best Saturday friend away Girls and boys And life took you away Make some noise Chorus

Livingston Saturday Night

JIMMY BUFFETT "Son Of A Son Of A Sailor"
You got your Tony Lama's on your jeans pressed tight, You take a few tokes, make you feel all right, Rockin' and rollin' on a Livingston Saturday Night. Pickup's washed and you just got paid. With any luck at all you might even get laid, 'Cause they're pickin' and a-kickin' on a Livingston Saturday Night. So won't you listen to the sound of a hot country band, Boot heels shufflin' on the dance floor Sam Sing a song, play some pong, shoot a little pool, Hittin' on the honeys right out of high school. Yeah, fifteen may get you twenty, but that's all right, 'Cause they're rockin and a rollin' on a Livingston Saturday Night So won't you listen to the sound of the hot country band, Boot heels shufflin' on the dance floor Sam, Hum a song, play some pong, eat a deviled egg, Temperature is rising, better pop another keg. Fifteen may get you twenty, but that's all right, 'Cause they'll be rockin' and a rollin' on a Livingston Saturday Night.

All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You

HEART "Road Home"
Was a late night, when he came into sight, standing by the road, no umbrella, no coat, so I pulled up along side, and I offered him a ride, he accepted with a smile, so we drove for awhile. I didn't ask him his name, this lonley boy in rain, fate tell me it's right, is it love at first sight? Please don't make it wrong, just stay for the night. Chorus All I wanna do is make love to you, say you will, you want me too, all I wanna do is make love to you, and your loving arms to hold onto. So we found this hotel, it was a place, I knew well. We made magic that night, oh he did everything right. He brought the woman out of me, so many times, easily. And in the morning we he woke, all I left him was a note, I told him I am the flower, you are the seed, we walked in the garden, we played in a tree. Don't try to find me, please don't you dare, just live in my memory, you'll always be there. Chorus We made love, love like strangers, all night long, we made love. Then it happened one day, I came 'round the same way. You can imagine his suprise, when he saw his own eyes. I said please, please understand, I'm in love with another man, and what he couldn't give me, was the one little thing that you can. Chorusx4

Tennessee Stud

ARLO GUTHRIE "One Night"
by Jimmy Driftwood Along about eighteen and twenty-five I left Tennessee very much alive I never would have got through the Arkansas mud If I hadn't been a-ridin on the Tennessee stud I had some trouble with my sweetheart's pa One of her brothers was a bad outlaw I sent her a letter by my Uncle Fud And I rode away on the Tennessee stud CHORUS: The Tennessee stud was long and lean The color of the sun and his eyes were green He had the nerve and he had the blood And there never was a hoss like the Tennessee stud One day I was ridin' in the beautiful land And ran smack into an Indian band They jerked their knives with a whoop and a yell But I rode away like a bat out of hell Well I circled their camp for a time or two And showed what a Tennessee hoss could do And them redskin boys never got my blood 'Cause I was a-ridin' on the Tennessee stud CHORUS We drifted on down into no man's land We crossed the river called the Rio Grande I raced my hoss with the Spaniards bold Till I got me a skin full of silver and gold Me and a gambler we couldn't agree We got in a fight over Tennessee We jerked our guns, he fell with a thud And I got away on the Tennessee stud CHORUS Well, I got as lonesome as a man can be Dreamin' of my girl in Tennessee The Tennessee stud's green eyes turned blue 'Cause he was a-dneamin' of a sweetheart too We loped on back across Arkansas I whipped her brother and I whipped her pa I found that girl with the golden hair And she was ridin' on a Tennessee mare CHORUS Stirrup to stirrup and side by side We crossed the mountains and the valleys wide We came to Big Muddy and we forded the flood On the Tennessee mare and the Tennessee stud Pretty little baby on the cabin floor Little hoss colt playin' 'round the door I love the girl with golden hair And the Tennessee stud loves the Tennessee mare CHORUS

Brian Wilson

BARENAKED LADIES "Gordon"
Brian Wilson Words Music by Steven Page Drove downtown in the rain nine-thirty on a Tuesday night, just to check out the late-night record shop. Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane, but when I'm surrounded I just can't stop. It's a matter of instinct, it's a matter of conditioning, it's a matter of fact. You can call me Pavlov's dog. Ring a bell and I'll salivate. How'd you like that? Dr. Lendy tell me you're not just a pedagogue, cause right now I'm Chorus Lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did Well I'm lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did. So I'm lying here, just starting at the ceiling tiles. and I'm thinking about what to think about. Just listening and relistening to Smiley Smile, and I'm wondering if this is some kind of create drought because I am Chorus And if you want to find me I'll be out in the sandbox, wondering where the hell all the love has gone. Playing my guitar and building castles in the sun, and singing 'Fun, Fun, Fun.' Chorus I had a dream that I was three hundred pounds and though I was very heavy, I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground Somebody help me, I couldn't see the ground Somebody help me, I couldn't see the ground Somebody help me because I'm Chorus Drove downtown in the rain nine-thirty on a Tuesday night. Just to check out the late-night record shop. Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane; but when I'm surrounded I just can't stop.
