Dinah Shore lyrics

Whatever Lola Wants

Original and similar lyrics
I HAD A MAN. HE WAS A GOOD MAN. THAT IS, YOU SEE, WHAT I MEAN IS I THOUGHT HE WAS A GOOD MAN. I HAD A FRIEND. SHE WAS A GOOD FRIEND. I TOLD MY FRIEND ‘BOUT MY MAN ‘CAUSE I THOUGHT SHE WAS A GOOD FRIEND. LIFE WAS SWEET. DIDN'T I HAVE MY MAN? WORLD COMPLETE... THEN THE FIREWORKS BEGAN. AIN'T GOT NO MAN. AIN'T GOT NO FRIEND. I BET YOU CAN GUESS JUST EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. THAT WAS THE END, THE END OF MY FRIEND, THE END OF MY MAN, AND ALMOST THE END OF ME. OH YES, OH YES, I HAD A MAN. OOO-DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO, THAT IS, YOU SEE, WHAT I MEAN IS I THOUGHT HE WAS A GOOD MAN. I HAD A FRIEND I SAID, I HAD A FRIEND UMM-MMM-MMM-MMM-MMM I TOLD MY FRIEND ‘BOUT MY MAN ‘CAUSE I THOUGHT SHE WAS A GOOD FRIEND. LIFE WAS SWEET. DIDN'T I HAVE MY MAN, MY MAN WORLD COMPLETE... THEN THE FIREWORKS BEGAN. AIN'T GOT NO MAN. AIN'T GOT NO FRIEND. I BET YOU CAN GUESS JUST EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. THAT WAS THE END, THE END OF MY FRIEND, THE END OF MY MAN, AND DARNED NEAR THE END OF ME. Danny Kaye's wife, Sylvia Fine, adapted it to a jive version that was done in a Mail Call program in 1944 by Danny and Dinah: “TESS'S TORCH SONG - JIVE' Dinah: LOVE, IT CAN GET YOU IN THE STRANGEST MESSES. I KNOW YOUR STORY WELL, IT'S JUST LIKE TORCH OF TESS'S: YOU HAD A GAL... Danny: I SWEAR ME MOMMA, OH WHAT A GAL WAS MARY. Dinah: SHE WAS YOUR BEST GAL... Danny: OH BEAT ME DADDY, WHAT A PAL WAS MARY. Dinah: THAT IS, YOU SEE, WHAT I MEAN IS YOU THOUGHT SHE WAS YOUR BEST GAL. Danny: SHOOT THE BARE FACTS TO ME, FAIRFAX. I HAD A FRIEND... Dinah: OH, JOE, JOE, JOE THE ROCK OF GI-GIBRALTAR.

A Song For All Seasons

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE "Volunteers"
Well the word was out on the street today All the friends that I'd met would have to say While your records line the shelves You're fighting amongst yourselves That's a hell of a lot of dues for you to pay Well the word my friend you know is on the street It's on the lips of everyone I meet While you're climbin up the chart Your band just fell apart I guess your life just ain't really that complete You know your car with which I was impressed Well I hear that it's gonna be repossessed Well I thought you had it made But you ain't even paid For the things that you've bought Since the acid test I hear you manager skipped town with all your pay And your lead singer's bulge turns the censors grey Wall that's really a doggone shame But who's there left to blame And all you ever really wanted was just to play They say your drummer he's crazy as a loon Last night they found him baying at the moon As as for your lead guitar He just cracked up his car But he should be out of traction very soon Well my friend it's time for me to go I just can't be late for my evening show You see I've written this tune And I hope that very soon I'll be heard on Top 40 radio

Texan Love Song

ELTON JOHN "Don't Shoot Me (I'm Only The Piano Player)"
Music by Elton John Available on the album Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player I heard from a friend you'd been messing around With a cute little thing I'd been dating uptown Well I don't know if I like that idea much Well you'd better stay clear I might start acting rough You out of town guys sure think you're real keen Think all of us boys are homespun and green But that's wrong my friend so get this through your head We're tough and we're Texan with necks good and red So it's Ki yi yippie yi yi You long hairs are sure gonna die Our American home was clean till you came And kids still respected the president's name And the eagle still flew in the sky Hearts filled with national pride Then you came along with your drug-crazy songs Goddamit you're all gonna die How dare you sit there and drink all our beer Oh it's made for us workers who sweat spit and swear The minds of our daughters are poisoned by you With your communistic politics and them negro blues Well I'm gonna quit talking and take action now Run all of you fairies clean out of this town Oh I'm dog tired of watching you mess up our lives Spending the summertime naturally high

I'll Be Waiting

Offspring "Ignition"
Once I had a friend that I could count on So I thought Well so it seemed But times of need are not enough To prove your friendship to me now Once I saw a face that I believed in But a mask was all there was So who wears the masks and who wears the faces Well I guess I'll never know But as I stand here alone in a room full of people With nothing to say Beer on their minds, and smoke in the air Call them feiends but they just don't care Friend for life Such shallow words for brokrn minds Show me a friend for life Cause I'll be waiting for that day to arrive When I'll feel alive I'll be waiting for that day Once I found a love I had to know Now we might know each other just too well Cause when we're together we just can't get enough Or is it we just can't get what we want Once I saw a dream, I had to chase it Dreams quickly turn to reality Who's at fault in this game of yours and mine Well I guess I'll never know But as I sit here alone Think of the girl who came softly inside me The look in her eyes, the smell of her hair Call her my own but is she really there Love for life Such noble words for noble minds Show me a love for life Cause I'll be waiting for that day to arrive When I'll feel alive I'll be waiting for that day Once I had a friend that I could count on Times of need are not enough Once I found a love I had to know Now we might know each other just too well Once I saw a dream I had to chase it Dreams quickly turn to reality Now let me close my eyes Because I don't want to see anymore

Runs In The Family

AMANDA PALMER "Who Killed Amanda Palmer"
My friend has problems with winter and autumn They give him prescriptions, They shine bright lights on him They say it's genetic, They say he can't help it They say you can catch it But sometimes you're born with it My friend has blight he gets shakes in the night And they say there is no way That they could have caught it in Time takes its toll on him, it is traditional It is inherited predisposition All day I've been wondering What is inside of me, Who can I blame for it? I say It runs in the family, this famine that carries me To such great lengths To open my legs Up to anyone who'll have me It runs in the family, I come by it honestly Do what you want 'Cause who knows It might fill me up [echoes] Fill me up [echoes] My friend's depressed, She's a wreck, she's a mess They've done all sorts of tests and They guess it has something to do With her grandmother's grandfather's grandmother Civil war soldiers who Badly infected her My friend has maladies, rickets, and allergies That she dates back to the 17th century Somehow she manages, in her misery - Strips in the city And shares all her best tricks with Me? Well, I'm well. Well, I mean I'm in hell. Well, I still have my health (At least that's what they tell me) If wellness is this, what in hell's name is sickness? But business is business! And business Runs in the family, we tend to bruise easily Bad in the blood, I'm telling you 'cause I just want you to know me Know me and my family We're wonderful folks but Don't get too close to me 'Cause you might knock me up [echoes] Knock me up [echoes] Mary have mercy. Now look what I've done But don't blame me because I can't help where I come from And running is something that we've always done Well and mostly I can't even tell what I'm running from Run from their pity From responsibility Run from the country And run from the city I can run from the law I can run from myself I can run for my life I can run into debt I can run from it all I can run till I'm gone I can run for the office And run from the 'cause I can run using every Last ounce of energy I cannot I cannot I cannot Run from my family They're hiding inside me Corpses on ice Come in if you'd like But just don't tell my family They'd never forgive me They say that I'm crazy But they would say anything If it would shut me up Shut me up Shut me up [echoes] Shut me up [echoes]

Split Personality

PINK "Can't Take Me Home"
I do not trust, so I cannot love (can't no man be trusted) Oh no no no And I would not dare to open up (this life of yours is dusted Pink) Well my rent's past due and now my car won't start, I hate the bus (well aren't you glad you have somebody to talk to) Tell me what do they see when they look at me Do they see my many personalities Chorus: Can you help me Does anybody hear me Can they even see me This is my reality, oh oh (can it be my turn now, is it my turn Pink) Said I'll say it again, you're my only friend (I protect you from the world, I basically protect you from yourself) Though I can't go on, I'm not satisfied with this being the end (this is just the beginning) Tell me why can't I just reach up and simply touch the sky Tell me why can't I spread my arms and fly and fly and fly Tell me why can't I say this, why can't I do that Tell me what do they want from me, tell me how to act Repeat Chorus 2x So I'm putting it all on the table (tell em' Pink) You don't know me well enough to label me, sick, or even disturbed When you break it down I'm just two girls Trying to blend, trying to vibe (trying) Trying to live just one life (so hard) Everybody's got insanities...I got a split personality Tell me why can't I just reach up and simply touch the sky (why can't you) Tell me why can't I spread my arms and fly and fly and fly (you can) Tell me why can't I say this, why can't I do that (just do it) Tell me what do they want from me, tell me how to act (I can't, I can't) Repeat Chorus 3x Can you help me (talk to me, talk to me, don't ignore me, I can't take it) Do you hear me Do you see me everytime (oh calm down, it's not that serious, we'll be just fine without them) It's all mine...it's my reality...it's just too much for me (you're my friend, you're my friend...Pink!...Pink!)
