Hey There Delilah

Original and similar lyrics
Hey there Delilah What's it like in New York City? I'm a thousand miles away But girl, tonight you look so pretty Yes you do Times Square can't shine as bright as you I swear it's true Hey there Delilah Don't you worry about the distance I'm right here if you get lonely Give this song another listen Close your eyes Listen to my voice, it's my disguise I'm by your side Oh it's what you do to me Oh it's what you do to me Hey there Delilah I know times are getting hard But just believe me, girl Someday I'll pay the bills with this guitar We'll have it good We'll have the life we knew we would My word is good Oh it's what you do to me Oh it's what you do to me Oh it's what you do to me Oh it's what you do to me A thousand miles seems pretty far But they've got planes and trains and cars I'd walk to you if I had no other way Our friends would all make fun of us and we'll just laugh along because we know That none of them have felt this way Delilah I can promise you That by the time we get through The world will never ever be the same And you're to blame Oh it's what you do to me Oh it's what you do to me Oh it's what you do to me Oh it's what you do to me It's what you do to me It's what you do to me It's what you do to me It's what you do to me

Temptation

BILLY JOEL "The Bridge"
Listen boyDon't want to see you let a good thingSlip away You know I don't like watchingAnybody make the same mistakesI made She's a real nice girlAnd she's always there for you But a nice girl wouldn't tell you what you should doListen boy I'm sure that you think you got it allUnder control You don't want somebody telling youThe way to stay in someone's soul You're a big boy nowYou'll never let her goBut that's just the kind of thing She ought to knowTell her about itTell her everything you feel Give her every reason to acceptThat you're for realTell her about it Tell her all your crazy dreamsLet her know you need her Let her know how much she meansListen boy It's not automatically a certain guaranteeTo insure yourself You've got to provide communication constantlyWhen you love someone You're always insecureAnd there's only one good wayTo reassureTell her about it Let her know how much you careWhen she can't be with you Tell her you wish you were thereTell her about itEvery day before you leave Pay her some attentionGive her something to believeCause now and then She'll get to worryingJust because you haven't spokenFor so long Though you may not have done anythingWill that be a consolation when she's gone Listen boyIt's good information from a manWho's made mistakes Just a word or two that she gets from youCould be the difference that it makes She's a trusting soulShe's put her trust in you But a girl like that won't tell youWhat you should doTell her about it Tell her everything you feelGive her every reasonTo accept that you're for real Tell her about itTell her all your crazy dreamsLet her know you need her Let her know how much she meansTell her about itTell her how you feel right now Tell her about itThe girl don't want to wait too long You got to tell her about itTell her now and you won't go wrong You got to tell her about itBefore it gets too lateYou got to tell her about it You know the girl don't wantTo wait--you got toTell her about it

Ceiling, Four Walls And A Floor

JOHNNY CASH "The Baron"
His daddy said son you oughta quit dreamin' Put your feet on the ground and your future in the hands of the Lord But the boy said no that ain't enough dad All you got here is a ceilin' four walls and a floor He left his home in Buckalou County He went thumbin' and sleepin' on the roadside livin' in jeans Along about Pittsburgh he got him a good job Bought him a brand new Malibu Chevy that was part of his dreams He met a pretty girl she was thinkin' of a family He bought a lotta tapes for his Malibu Chevy but he didn't want more And the pretty girl said boy you oughta slow down He said who needs a ceilin' four walls and a floor He did a little drinkin' he did a little gamblin' Shot a little nine ball bet a little money on the football games He picked up a habit he got it on the sidewalk His habit got bigger but his weekly paycheck stayed the same His daddy wrote letters but he never answered The pretty girl begged him to give up the habit and to work on a change It was a real small gun and a real small robbery They locked him up and they traded him a number for his name It ain't no big news it ain't no big story You didn't see it in the paper so I guess we oughta put it in a song The boy got hooked and he couldn't get unhooked And it's happenin' somewhere now and maybe that's what's wrong His daddy said son you oughta quit dreamin'...

Carlene

PHIL VASSAR "Phil Vassar"
I was lousy at math, failed historian Carlene was the valedictorian I was the quarter back in the back of classes She was the whiz kid in horned rim glasses It's been a long time since I've been around Since I stepped foot on my old stomping ground I ended up by the old school yard When this red head pulled up in a blue sports car She said, 'I bet you don't remember, I guess it's been forever.' It took a second to put it all together and I said. Ooh la la la la la Looking good Carlene Woh my my my my my Times been good to you If you know what I mean Girl you glitter like hollywood Good god carlene You sure are lookin good She said hop in let's go for a spin Tell me whatcha been doing boy and where you been I said I write songs, you probably didn't know, but I finally got a couple out on country radio She said, 'What a switch, ain't life funny, I've got a PHD, now I'm modeling for money.' Imagine little miss 4.0 just smiling for the camera on the cover of Vogue I said you've come a long way since graduation Let me say without hesitation You've surpassed everyone's expectations Ooh la la la la la Looking good Carlene Woh my my my my my Times been good to you If you know what I mean Girl you glitter like hollywood Good god carlene You sure are lookin good I said I hope to see you again someday She said another ten years is too long to wait Pick me up at my Momma's at eight! And I said. Ooh la la la la la Looking good Carlene Woh my my my my my Times been good to you If you know what I mean Ooh la la la la la Looking good Carlene Woh my my my my my Times been good to you If you know what I mean Ooh la la la la la Looking good Carlene Woh my my my my my Times been good to you If you know what I mean

CHANTE MOORE "This Moment Is Mine"
Chante's got a man at home And he's sure good to me I'm sorry that your man ain't home I'm sorry that yours left you alone It's such a shame your man is playing games And I heard you say that men are all the same No, no, no 1 - It's not the truth girl Cause I got proof girl Oh I got proof girl I got a man at home 2 - Chante's got a man at home It hurts me your man's leaving you all alone I can't help it that your baby's bad Creeping out, cheating on ya, beating on ya Chante's got a man at home And he's sure good to me Listen Now why'd you let him beat you down No, no, what's up with that There's good men around Don't you know how beautiful you are inside girl And don't you let nobody go and steal your pride Oh no no, I know your thing girl Repeat 1 Repeat 2 I once was where you are Thought men were all the same But I never gave up hope And now my life has changed Listen to me girls One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl He always treats me right, we never fight He sends me flowers and wines and dines me Took me home to meet his momma How he loves me One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl Give it one more try Before ya give up on love Repeat 2 until fade

Sugar Marie

JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP "John Cougar"
Well I'm all gassed up The Car is waitin' outside I got three more hours on this loser's job And then I'll be ready to ride I got this cowboy comin' with me This guy's name is Jeffrey Jack He can shoot the eyes out of a pool ball He can get the young girls into the sack We'll go down to the dance hall Locals will be kickin' up their heels They'll be drinkin' tequila sunrises Until the morning light fills up the window sills Chorus: And then I'll be with Sugar Marie She's the only girl I know that can make me forget about me Come on and dance with me Sugar Marie She don't ask me any questions when it's time to leave She works down at the truck stop Where she polishes the spoons She gets colas and burgers for the boys On those hot summer afternoons She's got this girlfriend named Linda Linda's got a tattoo that says Christ Well she ain't half bad to talk to And I reckon she looks pretty nice We'll drive down to the dance hall Sittin' there waitin' on me Jesus, you know it feels pretty good And sometimes I need some good ole company Chorus She don't ask any questions And she don't flirt with the other boys She belongs to me Sugar Marie Bridge: I never thought I needed no one I can make a big enough mess myself Oh, but when I finally found someone She made me respect myself Dance for me Sugar Marie Chorus Hey girl I wish we could tear the heart Out of this old town tonight
