Bruce Cockburn lyrics

You Pay Your Money And You Take Your Chance

Original and similar lyrics
Woman cry -- chase man down street crying No Chuckie, no, please don't Another girl comes they run along St. Andrew, turn south on Kensington Meanwhile Chuckie beats it down the alley by the chicken packer's By the time I reach the corner they've all vanished Just a deaf kid talking like Popeye to a large fleshy laughing man in a blue shirt You pay your money and you take your chance When you're dealing with love and romance Down the alley past the fire escape a woman is talking on the telephone Kitchen light spills out, laughter riding on its beam In the maze of moebius streets we're trying to amuse ourselves to death Under the deep sky that's squatting so close over us tonight You'd think it was trying to hatch us The numb and confused The battered and bruised The counters of cost And the star-crossed You pay your money and you take your chance When you're dealing with love and romance Confused and solo in the spawning ground i watch the confusion of friends all numb with love Moving like stray dogs to the anthem of night-long conversations, of pulsing rhythms and random voltage voices In spite of themselves, graceful as these raindrops creeping spermlike across the car window Stay or leave, give or withold, hesitate or leap Each step splashing sparks of red pain in every direction And through it all, somehow, this willingness that asks no questions You pay your money and you take your chance When you're dealing with love and romance.

Lesson In Survival

Lesson in Survival Spinning out on turns That gets you tough Guru books-the Bible Only a reminder That you're just not good enough You need to believe in something Once I could in our love Black road Double yellow line Friends and kin Campers in the kitchen That's fine sometimes But I know my needs My sweet tumbleweed I need more quiet times By a river flowing You and me Deep kisses And the sun going down Maybe it's paranoia Maybe it's sensitivity Your friends protect you Scrutinize me I get so damn timid Not at all the spirit That's inside of me Oh baby I can't seem to make it With you socially There's this reef around me I'm looking way out at the ocean Love to see that green water in motion I'm going to get a boat And we can row it If you ever get the notion To be needed by me Fresh salmon frying And the tide rolling in I went to see a friend tonight 'Was very late when I walked in My talking as it rambled Revealed suspicious reasoning The visit seemed to darken him I came in as bright As a neon light And I burned out Right there before him I told him these things I'm telling you now Watched them buckle up In his brow When you dig down deep You lose good sleep And it makes you Heavy company I will always love you Hands alike Magnet and iron The souls


When I married Julie She was just seventeen Pretty as the answer To any man's dream. [Instrumental] From the start I gave Julie All the love that I've had Though everyone told me That Julie was bad. Julie liked parties And clothes that fit tight Drinking and dancin' Around late at night. She was everything evil With the face of a child But I sat home and waited While my Julie went wild. I had built me an empire With my own two hands With the money and power To break any man. But with all my possessions, Power and gold Julie was one thing I couldn't control. I gave Julie All my money could buy Begged her to love me But she wouldn't try. She'd only laugh Then walk out the door Each time she'd hurt me Made me love her more. [Instrumental] Now I'm locked in this room They say I'm insane And I guess that I'll never See my Julie again. I'm a man with a heart And a tormented soul And the mind that Julie Drove out of control...

Right Wing Warfare

Aus-Rotten "The Rotten Agenda"
We couldn'twait until judgement day So we'll tell you now what god has to say We're only here to give god's plan a nudge And declare ourselves as your rightful judge Because we're the enlightened ones who hear his words And we'll make sure you get what you deserve So if your lifestyle has left god's will defied Then you too will be crucified The amount of oppression commited in the name of god above Seems hypocritical for an institution that claims to cherish love But the leaders of the Christian right seem eager to create A national hysteria based on ignorance and hate Claiming to be the voice for whatever god has to say Condemning same-sex marriages and advancement for gays A return to traditional values that help hold women back While portraying themselves as the minorities whose lifestyle is under attack It's time to let god's work commence Oppressing others in his own defense His superiority makes his tyranny just So our vengeful god will do what he must To protect you from eternal damnation Or even worse: gay liberation All the oppression he puts his children through Is only done out of his love for you Under the guise of saving themselves from religious persecution Is one way of recruiting followers into this bigoted institution Convincing Christian soldiers that they are fighting the good fight Helps them feel more comfortable with depriving others human rights Redefining their image to protect a reasonable front Keeping the focus from thei hidden agenda of what they really want Absolute political power and a Christian hierarchy And the salvation of your soul that can be saved with lots of money When god asks for your money you must abide So just sit back and let faith provide Because with all of your money that Jesus saves He can fill the holes in the path he paves Where you hope to find your souls salvation But it won't live up to your expectations Your blind devotion has been their best investment Now prepare your soul for disappointment As a messenger of Christ I call on all of God's soliders to rise up and take a stand. These are troubled times and we find ourselves engulfed in spiritual warfare, submerged in a desperate battle between good and evil. Too many people have been lef astray and brainwashed by the anti-biblical feminist movement and the gay agenda. These heathens are responsible for the decline in the moral fabric of our society. It's out Christian duty to rid the world of all this vileness. To recognize these sinners as human beings would be an abomination in the eyes of god. I don't need god, I don't need saved, and I won't be enslaved Jesus enslaves Christians surrender and subit to god's will Those in the womb you protect, those on death row you kill An eye for an eye, a tooth for the truth Is this the message instilled in their youth Or is it protesting funerals to voice their concerns Fighting his battles until Christ returns If his messengers are these bigoted men Than it seems that god is showing bad judgement again What is it going to take before your agenda is appeased, An entire nation of worshippers dying on their knees? And everlasting pain and suffering for those who don't repent Is that the compassionate, loving god you claim to represent? Looking for moral leadership from these bigoted hypocrites Is like hoping for a fortune by polishing your shit Fuck the Christian Coalition and their fascist polictis There's nothing wrong with these people that a hungry lion couldn't fix

Can't Stop

Can't stop addicted to the shin dig Cop top he says I'm gonna win big Choose not a life of imitation Distant cousin to the reservation Defunkt the pistol that you pay for This punk the feeling that you stay for In time I want to be your best friend Eastside love is living on the westend Knock out but boy you better come to Don't die you know the truth is some do Go write your message on the pavement Burnin' so bright I wonder what the wave meant White heat is screaming in the jungle Complete the motion if you stumble Go ask the dust for any answers Come back strong with 50 belly dancers [Chorus:] The world I love The tears I drop To be part of The wave can't stop Ever wonder if it's all for you The world I love The trains I hop To be part of The wave can't stop Come and tell me when it's time to Sweetheart is bleeding in the snowcone So smart she's leading me to ozone Music the great communicator Use two sticks to make it in the nature I'll get you into penetration The gender of a generation The birth of every other nation Worth your weight the gold of meditation This chapter's going to be a close one Smoke rings I know your going to blow one All on a spaceship persevering Use my hands for everything but steering Can't stop the spirits when they need you Mop tops are happy when they feed you J. Butterfly is in the treetop Birds that blow the meaning into bebop [Repeat Chorus] Wait a minute I'm passing out Win or lose just like you Far more shocking Than anything i ever knew How about you 10 more reasons Why i need somebody new just like you Far more shocking than anything I ever knew Right on cue Can't stop addicted to the shin dig Cop top he says I'm gonna win big Choose not a life of imitation Distant cousin to the reservation Defunkt the pistol that you pay for This punk the feeling that you stay for In time I want to be your best friend Eastside love is living on the westend Knock out but boy you better come to Don't die you know the truth is some do Go write your message on the pavement Burnin' so bright I wonder what the wave meant Kick start the golden generator Sweet talk but don't intimidate her Can't stop the gods from engineering Feel no need for any interfering Your image in the dictionary This life is more than ordinary Can I get 2 maybe even 3 of these Come from space To teach you of the pliedes Can't stop the spirits when they need you This life is more than just a read thru
