ALABAMA lyrics - The Closer You Get...

Very Special Love

Original and similar lyrics
Words and Music by Teddy Gentry, Randy Owen, and Jeff Cook She said, I spent eight years in California. That's the reason why I talk the way I do. But I've hear how Southern men respect the ladies, and I'd like to meet a gentleman like you. Well, I spent most of my life in Alabama. That's the reason why I talk the way I do. And I've always had this thing for sun-tanned ladies, and I'd really like to spend some time with you. And we walked on the beach till early morning. And we watched as the sun came up again. And somehow we both shared the feelin' that we'd just made a very special friend. Tomorrow I'll go back to Alabama, and you'll fly from Atlanta to L.A.And I'll get back to takin' care of bus'ness, and you'll go back to starrin' on the stage. But we'll think of the beach come Monday morning, when both of us get back to push and shove. And somehow we will always remember the night we shared a very special love. I spent most of my life in Alabama. That's the reason why I talk the way I do. I know we shared a very special friendship the night we made a very special love.

The Time Is Now

JOHN CENA "You Can't See Me"
[Chorus: John Cena] Your time is up, my time is now You can't see me, my time is now It's the franchise, boy I'm shinin' now You can't see me, my time is now! [John Cena] In case you forgot or fell off I'm still hot - knock your shell off My money stack fat plus I can't turn the swell off The franchise, doin' big bid'ness, I live this It's automatic I win this - oh you hear those horns, you finished A soldier, and I stay under you fightin' Plus I'm stormin' on you chumps like I'm thunder and lightning Ain't no way you breakin' me kid, I'm harder than nails Plus I keep it on lock, like I'm part of the jail I'm slaughtering stale, competition, I got the whole block wishing they could run with my division but they gone fishing - - with no bait, kid your boy hold weight I got my soul straight, I brush your mouth like Colgate In any weather I'm never better your boy's so hot you'll never catch me in the next man's sweater If they hate, let 'em hate, I drop ya whole clan Lay yo' ass down for the three second tan [Chorus] [Tha Trademarc] Yeah, uh It's gonna be what it's gonna be Five pounds of courage buddy, bass tint pants with a gold T Uh - it's a war dance and victory step A raw stance is a gift, when you insist it's my rep John Cena, Trademarc, you all are so-so And talk about the bread you make but don't know the recipe for dough though Aimin' guns in all your photos, that's a no-no When this pop, you'll liplock, your big talk's a blatant no-show See what happens when the ice age melt You see monetary status is not what matters, but it helps I rock a timepiece by Benny if any The same reason y'all could love me is the same reason y'all condemn me A man's measured by the way that he thinks Not clothing lines, ice links, leather and minks I spent 20 plus years seekin' knowledge of self So for now Marc Predka's livin' life for wealth [Chorus 2x]

Darlin Be Home Soon

JOE COCKER
Verse 1: Come and talk of all the things we did today Here and laugh about our funny little way while we have a few minutes to breathe and I know that it's time you must leave Chorus: But darling be home soon I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled My darling be home soon It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled For the great relief of having you to talk to Verse 2: And now a quarter of my life is almost passed I think I've come to see myself at last and I see that the time spent confused was the time that I spent without you And I feel myself in bloom [repeat chorus] Verse 3: Go and beat your crazy head against the sky try and see beyond the houses and your eyes It's ok to shoot the moon [repeat chorus, last line w/solo acoustic guitar]

Out Of Jail

WAYLON JENNINGS "Right For The Time"
I sat at a bar having a beer Trying to hold down the stool When a stranger walked in stood there beside me And plopped down there like a fool. He started drinking then he started talking About things that were wrong in his life The more that I heard the more I believed The thing that was wrong was his wife. You talk about beauty when we first met She was all a man could desire Talk about love one night with her Would set your very soul on fire. But loves little flame is out of control About three feet high from behind Ever since we've been married well, I've come to believe That love's for the dumb and the blind. 'Cause you talk about ugly when she gets mad She goes from Jekill to Hyde She grits her teeth and her eyes roll back And pivot from side to side. She completely rewrites the whole English language Descriptive four lettered and loud Now I can't out think her but I can sure out drink her And that's what I'm doing here now. I've spent seven years with the wrong woman Seven and going on eight She spent seven years naggin' and eatin' I'm overwrought and she's overweight. If I try leavin' she has me arrested And takes her own sweet time gettin' me out If she ain't number one she's in the top two Of things that I could live without. Men commit murder and all kinds of mayhem In a few years they're back on the streets Highway robbery and white collar crime And they laugh at the system they beat. Sometimes I'm tempted sometimes I'm ashamed Of the things that the law will allow I could have killed her when I first met her And I'd have been out of jail by now. I could have killed her when we first met And I've have been out of jail by now...

A Reason For It All

Eric Bogle
Summer's smiling on the city, another lovely day in Sydney, sunshine pouring down like honey. But in the room where Clare is dying, no sunshine sends the shadows flying, no children gather round her crying, there's no one here at all, except perhaps for the man who sees each little sparrow fall. Don't talk to me about lonely souls crying, dark quite rooms with old people dying. I don't want to hear, I don't want to hear it at all. Tired old people die alone every day, don't blame me, I didn't make it that way. That's just how it is, don't look for a reason at all. Winter weeping on the city, a wet and windy day in Sydney, rain drops rolling fat and heavy down Clare's window pain. The rain upon the tin roof beating, disturb the rats as they are feeding. Back to the nest they all go creeping, leaving Clare alone again. It's been a long and lonely time since Clare could hear the rain. Don't talk to me about the meaning of life; don't sing your songs that cut like a knife. I don't want to hear, I don't want to hear it at all. Lonely old people ain't my concern, from dust we come, to dust we return and that's all there is, don't look for a reason at all. Spring has come at last to Sydney; flowers are blooming in the city. In all their multicolored glory, they rise to greet the year. Memories in chain recalling, footsteps on the front porch falling, voices through the window calling, is anybody here? Clare Candle's lost and lonely soul is a long, long way from here. Don't talk to me about life's seasons, don't ask me for answers, don't ask me for reasons. I don't want to hear, I don't want to hear it at all. From the moment we're born, we start to die; a man can go crazy if he keeps asking why. That's just how it is, don't look for a reason at all. Can't you understand what I'm trying to say, there must a reason, there must be a way to make some sense of it, to try to find a reason for it all. We are not born just so we can die, there must be an answer and we got to try to make some sense of it; to try to find a reason for it all. Can't you understand what I'm trying to say, there must a reason, there must be a way Don't talk to me about life's seasons, don't ask me for answers, don't ask me for reasons. to make some sense of it, to try to find a reason for it all. We are not born just so we can die, I don't want to hear, I don't want to hear it at all. From the moment we're born, we start to die; there must be an answer and we got to try to make some sense of it; to try to find a reason for it all. a man can go crazy if he keeps asking why. That's just how it is, don't look for a reason at all. That's just how it is, don't look for a reason at all. Well, there must a way, there must be reason for it all.
