I Miss America

Original and similar lyrics
I Miss America by Harry Chapin By the time I was thirteen I started taking shape. At eighteen I was so beautiful That the strangers started to gape. They said Enter the ultimate contest If you're as gorgeous as you seem. They said Please, please, please Be our American dream. But late that night beneath the grieving moon There's a dazzling sight in my motel room For a grunting judge with his bulging eyes I give my all for his cherished prize. Oh why, oh why? I'm Miss America Crying on TV Silver clad in satin rags, But everything's where it should be Oh say can you see, ah say can you see. After they showed me the game ball They told me put on weight. They told me I'd be powerful They told me I'd be great. And my Uncle Sam he would coach me His helmet on my head And they said Please, please please, please Please win and beat the spread. But the new game plan that the owners had made Meant that win or lose there would be a trade. For the team's become a real gold mine And the kid's sold off for the bottom line. Oh why, oh why? Mr. America Sweating on TV The winner's joy from the battered boy For everything's where it should be Oh say can you see, ah say can you see. At last we've come together Call it marriage or civil war. If it brings us to battle, babe It must be worth our fighting for. Though today came up cloudy There will be other days. Ah, please, please, please, please What else is there to say? But in plywood spread By a plastic stream And in separate beds with a borrowed dream And with questions wide and the silence deep We take two pills so at last we'll sleep. Oh why, oh why? Mr. and Mrs. America Our story's on TV Can you hear canned laughter For everything's where it should be Oh say can you see, ah say can you see. Well, my little boy he told me something Just the other night. He whispered it as I kissed him Before I turned out the light. And of course he said it simple As only children can He said Daddy, daddy, daddy, please I'm ready to dream again.

This Is My Life

KING LIL G "Blue Devil 2"
[Verse 1:] I was the kid that didn't get shit for Christmas My moms didn't care about goodnight kisses Fuck it At least I got hugs from my sister Never let me down I got love for my sister In the hood it got cold in the winter She put me on a jacket Everytime when I shivered I didn't like superman I idolized drug dealers Jump me in the neighborhood That's how I got a gun quicker I was only twelve Homies in & out of jail I needed money So I went & bought my first scale That's when I learned how to bust raps I told stories about my gang And how I started selling dub sacks Hood muthafuckas love that When the enemies came through Better believe I always bust back I want the finer things in life Jewels around my son's neck A model for a wife [Chorus:] There's a time & a place For every little thing I'ma grind my way up To get those big things Yes I see it My name is shining light Let me shine for all the fallen Wrap arms around them Just let me get to where I'm goin' Cause this is - this is my life Cause its my life My right - my mind [Verse 2 - Kiki Smooth:] Wu-tang hustle Chasing that cream As a young buck On my bicycle moving thangs Ditching school Trying to get paid Had a corner stand And didn't sell lemonade Step-pops in the kitchen Bagging up them drugs Me & my little bro Soaking game like a sponge Eyes on the prize Make my dream a reality Love & happiness Puffing on some al green Sitting on the curb Thinking about my master plan Gather up the soldiers Invade the rap game Voice of the people The vato got heart I spit that fire Illuminate the dark Serving in the hood Fiends know my nickname Mister go get it I ain't tryin' to fucken wait Here to be the greatest Top of the mountain My debut is coming The days are being counted [Chorus] [Verse 3:] Trust nobody Keep your trust me dog You never should Them boys will treat you like When death row belonged to suge Cause if the deal goes bad Black hoodie on Here we come to peel yo' cap In l.a We hit a spanish club called rodeo I came to hear my homeboy weasel's song From los canelos Corona in my hand Listening to his corridos I wanna do what How scrappy did up on cerritos [Verse 4 - Kiki Smooth:] Living that fast life No time for pumping breaks Heard it through the grape vine Kiki bout to elevate Kick in the door Like biggie to the smalls Smooth don't care If he's big or small Gangsta in the mirror Man of the hour Dope man flow Got ya face looking sour Mama always told me There'd be days like this I was born in the ghetto Can't worse-er than this [Chorus]

New Delhi

MADNESS "The Rise And Fall"
New Delhi at three A.M. Just arrived by K.L.M. Left the airport in the heat In the bus strange people meet Driving through the starless night Passing very unusual sights Left the bus at five to five Caught a taxi started to drive He thought I was a millionaire And accordingly put up the fare Dawn was breaking in the east Causing this hot night to cease Mosquitos buzzing in my ears Grating sound of clashing gears Burning rubber filled the air Taxi driver began to swear The heat was burning my head was turning It was then the car broke down Just on the outskirts of town A camel from the Dhrangadhra Silently passed by our car A vulture circled high above in the air I had to shade my eyes to cover the glare Sweating in the plastic seats Hard to breathe in the increasing heat Lying back my mind started to Drift into an uneasy sleep I dreamt I was in New Delhi Slowly dying of la grippe

Don't Let The Bastards (Get You Down)

KRIS KRISTOFFERSON "Third World Warrior"
They're killing babies in the name of Freedom We've been down that sorry road before They let us hang around a little longer than they should have And it's too late to fool us anymore We've seen the ones who killed the ones with vision Cold-blooded murder right before your eyes Today they hold the power and the money and the guns It's getting hard to listen to their lies. Chorus: And I've just got to wonder what my Daddy would've done If he'd seen the way they turned his dream around I've got to go by what he told me, try to tell the truth And stand your ground DON'T LET THE BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN Mining roads Killing farmers Burning down schools full of children Fighting communism Chorus: And I've just got to wonder what my Daddy would've done If he'd seen the way they turned his dream around I've got to go by what he told me, try to tell the truth And stand your ground DON'T LET THE BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN

Stay In The Game

ADAM ANT "Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunner's Daughter"
I had a dream just the other night It looked a lot like you I saw a painting on the wall Just like the one you drew I ate a steak just the other night It tasted just like you Felt like a tank in my armour plate But you could see right through Words are easy, words are cheap Wake you up, send you to sleep Words defend when things get tough But late at night they are not enough Oh stay in the game Oh stay in the game What's in a name Send you all insane I wore a coat just the other day It felt a lot like you Emperor's new clothes and baby You could see right through So now you want my demon seed Even though you know I've been there once before Sold my soul to rock and roll Words can cut you to the quick But that old chestnut Ich Liebe Dich They only matter put to sound Grabbed from the air and written down
