JAMES TAYLOR lyrics - Hourglass

Line 'Em Up

Original and similar lyrics
I remember Richard Nixon back in '74 and the final scene at the White House door and the staff lined up to say good-bye, tiny tear in his shifty little eye, he said, 'nobody knows me, nobody understands. These little people were good to me, oh I'm gonna shake some hands.' Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. At that time my heart was all broke, I looked like ashes and smelled like smoke and I turned away from my loving kind, try to leave my body and live in my mind but it's much too much emotion to hold it in your hand. They've got waves out on the ocean, they're gonna wear away the land, Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Want you to line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Oh, I've seen corn in Kansas and I've seen picket fences and certain cowboy dances. I've gone lining up for shows, I've been safely placed in rows, sure I know how it goes. Another day goes by, little time machine, I'm raking my brain over what it might mean just to claim the time and to turn away, to make today today. Who waits for you, lonely tired old toad? It's your life laid out before you like the broken white line down the center of the road. Line 'em up line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Yeah, big moon landing, people are standing up, smiles for the loved ones, they go walking on down the aisles. Each re-engages stepping into the sun, I watch them turn like pages one by one by one, Want you to line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. [Indecipherable French grunting]

Strictly Business

EPMD "Strictly Business"
Try to answer to the master on the MC rap artists No joke on the lyric -it's hard to be modest I knew I was the man with the master plan To make you wiggle and jiggle like gelatin Just think while I sing and to the brain structure Don't sleep on the E -- 'ya see, something might rupture I don't take time for me to blow your mind It takes a second to wreck it because you're dumb and blind So just lounge . . . 'Cause you're a MC clown Or join the circus . . . EPMD's in town Total chaos -- no mass confusion Rhymes so hypnotizing known to cause an illusion Like a magician who draws a rabbit out a hat, son I'm drawin' more, like a 44-Magnum MC's please stop, look, and listen and try to imagine it's travellin' the speed of lighjt, but everything' motion it's frightening Plus the thought of you alone You now enter the dimension called the Twilight Zone You're terrified . . . plus you can't bear the thought You and I one-on-one in the land of the lost You start to shiver . . . then you scream, my friend You wake up, Muttley, because you're dreamin' again Next time I'm on the scene . . . do not try to diss us Keep your mouth suckered up, because I'm Strictly Business This is the rap season . . . when the E starts pleasin' Girls around the world no need to be skeezin' When I roll I stroll, Cool always pack a 2 Just in case . . . a brother acts a fool I've got the energy to put the girlz in a frenzy Put a shock when I rock even though I'm not stingy Make sure I don't bore when I'm on the dance floor . . . Get busy, boy . . . like you never saw before Rhyme flow . . . good to go . . . After the show . . . I'll pull your hoe, boy Do you sniff blow?? -- Hell no Got my whole life ahead of me, no time to be sniffin' And if my parents find out, then they start riffin' So I stay, A-OK 'Cause I'm the E . . . the R-I-C-K MC's look me in the face and their eyes get weak Pulse rate descends . . . heart rate increases It's like beam me up, scotty, I control your body I'm as deadly as AIDS when it's time to rock a party With all due respect, when I say mike check I let a sucker slide once . . . then I break his neck So when I say jump, you'll reply How high? Because I'm takin' no prisoners, so don't play hero and die You're just a soldier . . . and I'm a Green Beret I do not think twice about the MCs I slay So if you want to battle, i highly recommend this: Bring your dog, mom, and dad . . . because I'm Strictly Business Yo, yo, you're still pickin' on that four-leaf clover? Bring in the sandman, sucker . . . because it's over My name is Eric Sermon and I'm back again I see the head's still turnin' of my so-called friends They smile in my face -- behind my back they talk trash, Mad and stuff - because they don't have cash Like the E-Double . . . or the Pee-MD He drives a Corvette, I drive a semi-iroc Suzuki I'm the locksmith . . . with the key to fame Never high on myself, always stay the same Play a lot because I'm hot and like a horse I trot Around the track and back, fatigued?? No, I'm not I'm the mellow, the fellow, the one that likes to say hello To a fly girl that is good to go With the slow tempo and the off-beat rhyme flow 'Cause when I am in action, there is no time for maxin' or relaxin Just reactin' and subtractin' On a sucker MC who's mouth keeps on yappin' and flappin' I lose my cool, then I'll be start slappin' and smackin' You on a roll, then I'll be start jackin' and cappin' No time to lounge, I'm packin' and strappin' At my point attack I soar at you like an eagle, I'm the sheriff, and bitin' is illegal So next time in town, I highly recommend this, You gots to chill, because I'm Strictly Business

What A Feelin'

Keith Murray "Enigma"
Verse One: Kaboom! Guess who stepped in the room? Lookin' like the creature from the Black Lagoon There's gonna be a 187 real soon If some niggas don't give me some elbow room I'm runnin with the Legion of Doom Like a pack of wolves foamin at the mouth on full moon I track range between space and time And push back like receding hair lines That's the essence of the effervescence At this melodic dynamic shit progresses A mic murderer for hire As I sit back and watch your little gimmick backfire Under the circumstances in any order of events I be with sick niggaz rollin thick Dissin the system got America mad at me Like my name was O.J. Simpson Chorus: repeat 2X My style is all that and a big bag of chips with the dip So fuck all that sensuous shit The astronomical is comin through like the flu bombin you Verse Two: Get off my d.k. you pitty pat bitch, stepped into the party People wonderin' if I'm a start some shit Prisoner of the media very often Cause people be blowin shit out proportion False information and bogus arithmetic Got everybody stuck on stupid, misinterpretating shit How could I? Why should I damage my career? Over a nigga that'll probably bust me out of fear Don't let your mouth get you into somethin that your ass can't get out When I see you I'm a pull your dreads out your scalp Caution: code red I could kill you now but instead I'm a put this thought into your head I got the illest crew in the industry We could go to war for 30 years like foreign countries Yo slow your roll Cause I don't really think you know with what you dealin Chorus Verse Three: Man fuck bitches I'm getting money And laughin at these clown ass niggaz like they funny The grand imperial with milky material I be the surprise in the bottom of your cereal. One thing I gotta say my Squad never lost it Unlike you corny MC's out there who Farrah Fawcett Can't rhyme runnin your mouth all the time While Def Squad sit back and enterprise perfect crimes Got the Funk Lord squeezin the life out of keyboards While each MC tear the frame out of mic chords Yo I was in the bullpen with them niggas pullin heists Grown ass men crying like little mice, but I'ma bounce true indeed Cause punk ass only bagged me with two ounces of weed Now I'm back in the city lights And all I can think about is keepin it tight

Cat's In The Cradle

HARRY CHAPIN "Greatest Stories Live"
A child arrived just the other day; He came to the world in the usual way. But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay. He learned to walk while I was away, And he was talking before I knew and as he grew he said, I'm gonna be like you, dad. You know I'm gonna be like you. And the cat's in the cradle And the silver spoon Little boy blue And the man in the moon. When you coming home, dad? I don't know when, But we'll get together then son You know we'll have a good time then. Well my son turned ten just the other day. He said thanks for the ball, dad, come on let's play. Can you teach me to throw? I said, not today I got a lot to do. He said, that's ok. And then he walked away but his smile never dimmed And he said, I'm gonna be like him, yeah. You know I'm gonna be like him. And the cat's in the cradle And the silver spoon, Little boy blue And the man in the moon. When you coming home, dad? I don't know when son But we'll get together then. You know we'll have a good time then. Well, he came from college just the other day, So much like a man I just had to say, Son, I'm proud of you. Can you sit for a while He shook his head, and he said with a smile, What I'd really like, dad, is to borrow the car keys. See you later. Can I have them please And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon, Little boy blue and the man in the moon. When you coming home, son? I don't know when, But we'll get together then, dad. You know we'll have a good time then. Well I've long since retired my son's moved away. I called him up just the other day. I said, I'd like to see you if you don't mind. He said, I'd love to, dad, if I could find the time. You see my new job's a hassle, and the kid's got the flu, But it's sure nice talking to you, dad. It's been sure nice talking to you. And as I hung up the phone, it occurred to me, He'd grown up just like me. My boy was just like me. And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon, Little boy blue and the man in the moon. When you coming home, son I don't know when, But we'll get together then, dad. You know we'll have a good time then. When you comin home son, I don't know when But will get together then, dad Were gonna have a good time then.
