Poor Damned Fool

Original and similar lyrics
You're a livin' walkin' dream You're the best I've ever seen, Oh God I wanted you. I've often dreamed what I would do, If I could give myself to you, Oh God I wanted to. But up 'til now you've not been free to be Foolin' around with the likes of me. But it's changed now, though it's strange how, He's the one that arranged it now. But he's a poor damned fool 'Cause he went and let you go now. Just a poor damned fool. He never will know now. Maybe someday he'll be sad. I say that that's too bad, He never knew how much he had. I'm glad I got you now. Yes I've had my ups and downs As I've been ramblin' around And I'll be candid. I could not believe my eyes When I finally realized Just what that man did. Yes I've heard 'bout finders keepers And how losers are the weepers, it's OK, I know it's my lucky day Still I just got to say . . . That he's a poor damned fool 'Cause he went and let you go now. Just a poor damned fool. He never will know now. Maybe someday he'll be sad. I say that that's too bad, He never knew how much he had. I'm glad I got you now. Oh how I'd love to hear you say You're glad that it worked out this way And you'll forget about yesterday 'Cause you feel so good. It's worked out real good. You make me feel so good. I've been tryin' to find a way to cope With grasping straws And fallen hopes. But he's made a way And now his misfortune is my gain. Though for now it gives you pain It'll fade away And you'll find that as the years roll by The memories of the time you cried Will be laid away Yes, they'll fade away And you'll forget that poor damned fool 'Cause he went and let you go now. Just a poor damned fool. He never will know now. Maybe someday he'll be sad. I say that that's too bad He never knew how much he had. I'm glad I got you now. He was a poor damn fool.

Family Tree

Belle Sebastian "Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like A Peasant"
I've been feeling down I've been looking round the town For somebody just like me But the only ones I see Are the dummies in the window They spend their money on clothes It saddens me to think That the only ones I see are mannequins Looking stupid, being used and being thin And I don't know why I hang around with them The way they act, I'd rather be fat than be confused The way they act, I'd rather be fat than be confused Than be me in a cage With a bottle of rage And a family like the mafia I've been feeling blue And I don't know what to do And I never get a thrill And they threw me out of school 'Cause I swore at all the teachers Because they never teach us A thing I want to know We do Chemistry, Biology and Maths I want Poetry and Music and some laughs And I don't think it's an awful lot to ask So won't you please get up off your knees, and let me go So won't you please get up off your knees, and let me go Cause I'm here in a cage With a bottle of rage And a family like the mafia If my family tree goes back to the Romans Then I will change my name to Jones If my family tree goes back to Napolean Then I will change my name to Smith If my family tree goes back to the Romans Then I will change my name to Jones If you're looking at me to be an accountant Then you will look but you will never see If you're looking at me to start having babies Then you can wish because I'm not here to fool around You can wish because I'm not here to fool around You can wish because I'm not here to fool around 11) There is too much love ยก@ I could hang about and burn my fingers I've been hanging out here waiting for something to start You think I'm faultless to a 't' My manner set impeccably But underneath I am the same as you I could dance all night like I'm a soul boy But I know I'd rather drag myself across the dance floor I feel like dancing on my own Where no one knows me, and where I Can cause offence just by the way I look And when I come to blows When I am numbering my foes Just hope that you are on my side my dear But it's best to finish as it started With my face head down just staring at the brown formica It's safer not to look around I can't hide my feelings from you now There's too much love to go around these days You say I've got another face That's not a fault of mine these days I'm honest, brutal and afraid of you

I Wish My Baby Was Born

Tim Eriksen
I wish, I wish my baby was born And sittin' on its papa's knee And me, poor girl And me, poor girl, were dead and gone And the green grass growin' o'er my feet I ain't ahead, nor never will be Till the sweet apple grows On a sour apple tree But still I hope the time will come When you and I shall be as one I wish I wish my love had died And sent his soul to wander free Then we might need a ravens fight Let our poor bodies rest in peace The owl, the owl Is a lonely bird It chills my heart With dread and terror That someone's blood There on his wing That someone's blood There on its feather

Viii Bewitched Whore (Does Belong To Eternity: Cry For Selind)

Divina Enema
(When he had so spoken, I beheld the Angel, stretched out his arms, embracing the flame of fire, and he was consumed, and arose as Elijah. Note. This Angel, who is now became a Devil, is my particular friend. We often read the Bible together in its infernal or diabolical sense, which the world shall have if they behave well. I have also The Bible of Hell, which the world shall have whether they will or no.) SLEEP DEPRIVATION THEME: Sleep and then you will see, As you even can't imagine yourself As sometimes all of the things Overturn upside-down... Oh, my dearest! They seem to be real And all of them - I mean those people are sheep who do not differ from one an another Sleep and then you will see... Have a look at your dreams - They are burning in flames Like the rags torn asunder. And under you feet... Can't you see dying days? You cannot leave Your sweet sleepering chamber Nobody minds, That's only a dream. It's high time to go ahead to bed... Nothing yet... Almost done, Two-faced devil's child, Rise and cry; Nobody won Anyone, And lost this one either... Having arrived from the other side, Forlorn in silent pride . Mist and disease do exist in your dreams. Strange flames are waltzing so beautiful now Under your feet And on your way home; There is no need to cure: They are your sick overture Before you go insane at all. Autumn flames stole your dreams... Dancing flames stole your soul... Nobody minds if you fall asleep. Sleep if you can, Sleep if you will. Sleep if you see the bright light next to me. Sleep if you dare to watch my surprise. Sleep 'cause I don't care Haven't you heard my nice lullabies! THE WOODEN LADLE THEME: Some people only need in food and want to muck Some of them got to live in fight and have bad luck Some of them born with a silver spoon in a mouth And the others with a wooden ladle... You'll have seen as... Shall we be fighting with the sin Has spread abyss as endless sea? You mean us: It won't touch me Even if I follow all these fools... Some people have got to drown and die In seas or in a glass of wine And if you share their way - You will have got the most of attributes. Dominion do we need? Not quite... Oh, you had better listen to the rustle of the silent days. Watch as poor mankind does make a million ways - During its countless nights and days Caught in a trap full of deadly haze. - It always does search for itself. Betray! Don't give them another chance anymore. Let them disappoint themselves more and more Let them drown in bloody sea and stay on the shore. - They yet wanted all the cares and got them all! What have you got in a mouth - in a mouth of yours Who knows of this delicious one tell me - I can't suppose Let me look at this one in a mouth of yours Perhaps it sounds great and looks so fun... I suppose You cannot stay outside the death. First one that's looking very sad Don't try to be a GOD Therefore you cannot be a GOD, Poor mortal whore You will have known it very soon Who gets a ladle or a spoon Why did you get your wooden one And who had thrown it into your mouth. Nobody did believe this: Thou art not a GOD. The thoughts of thine with thy wrath are falling apart Because of idiotic ae thou dost keep in thy mouth... With ladle thou wert made... Thou shalt not become the devilkin before it is too late. Thy wooden ae doth make thee weep It doth not want thee to eat or sleep - It doth make thy path pass away Thou art getting paler day by day... Try to appease thy angry daemon and keep him in thy mouth Feed him by thy flesh and thy bones far more than usual Thou art poor mortal whore... There is wonderful place - there is beautiful place Keep your temper - you are not to be in a maze There is haze of oblivion - wonderful haze There is wonderful place for your future remains. SLEEP DEPRIVATION THEME: Sleep fast and do not be afraid: When you will have awoke You'll be rich and mighty as before, Mad sea alike thou winna know Of thine shore, poor mortal whore! Sleep and then you will see Dark and bottomless sea, Sleep and then you will buy Hidden essence of thine. Come along side by side Next to your filthy pride. Evil demons of time Will have not passed thee by. Wonder I if you'd mind Dying now in a sleep? You are poor mortal whore. You're degenerate sheep! Sleep and then you won't see As the hollow - eyed darkness comes. Sleep and then you won't see As the blind moon is arising, Sleep and then you won't see All of the sudden cares, You even do fear To think of them again and again Sleep and then you won't see Sleeping grim entity If the nightmares of yours Not suffocate you before. You are poor mortal whore. You won't wait for salvation Whilst you have your nightmares And sleep deprivation Sleep and then you will see Two faces of GOD!!! Well, it's time to reveal our forces and might You don't know how to manage him who has arrived You have done all the screaming already and now Wring your hands in despair and o don't ask me How Am I t' stop it? - If you leave off rowing it will Stop of itself - What are you to reveal? So the boat of yours was left to drift down the stream So you're desperate one's left to drift down the stream Lo the blade of one of the oars got fast in the Water and would not come out again And the consequence was that the handle of it Caught you under your chin thus got under your feet!

We Kill The World (Don't Kill The World)

Boney M. "Boonoonoonoos"
I see mushrooms, atomic mushrooms. I see rockets, missiles in the sky. Day by day, more and more, Where will this lead to and what is this good for? Poor World, Poor World. Concrete's rising up, where yearerday was park you heard the Robin's Song Heavy tractor runs where air was clean and cool make money, bringing fuel. Where will this lead to and what is this good for? A Poor World, Poor World. Fishes doomed to die as people live close by and oaktree falls with moon Parking lots will come with flowerfields were bright as junkyard covers sight! Where will this lead to and what is this good for? Poor world, is hurting bad, Poor world, is doomed to die. We kill the world kill the world We surely do In peace we do! We kill the world kill the world 'cause we don't know what we are doing! We kill it One by one Don't realize! And nuclear piles stand like monuments of destruction throughout over the country Promenades must go so cars can drive in row New Fact'ry towers tall Farmhouse had to fall No flowers in the air pollution everywhere. Where will this lead to and what is this good for? A Poor world, Poor World. Oceans in despair There's rubbish everywhere The seaweed chokes in mud Nature's had her lot With nuclear waste and rot And mushrooms bloom as clouds. Where will this lead to and what is this good for? Poor world, is hurting bad, poor world, is doomed to die. We kill the world... Don't kill the world don't let her down. Do not destroy basic ground. Don't kill the world our means of life. Lend ear to nature's cry. Don't kill the world She's all we have, And surely is worth to save. Don't let her die, fight for her trees, Pollution robs air to breathe. Don't kill the world help her survive And she'll reward you with life And don't just talk, Go on and do the one, who wins is you. Cherish the world, A present from God On behalf of all creatures, made by the Lord Care for the earth, Foundation of life Slow progress down help her survive
