Memphis

Original and similar lyrics
Memphis (Chuck Berry) Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call 'Cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis Tennessee Her home is on the south side, high up on a ridge Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge Help me, information, more than that I cannot add Only that I miss her and all the fun we had But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee Last time I saw Marie she's waving me good-bye With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee

Touch The World

Earth Wind And Fire "Touch The World"
Rev. Oliver Wells She walks with a beat as she works the street in the dead of night She's been laid off and her kids must eat and his money's right A world away beneath the sun the earth goes dry A hungry starving people search for food as their babies die (Chorus) I tell you, we can touch the world When we meet them all at their need We can touch them where they are help them to believe, touch the world He's on the pipe and he's got the shakes as he takes a puff Their badges shine and there's no escape as they lock him up Fourteen years old and without love the girl is livin' wild How can it be a four month pregnancy and she's the child (Chorus) I tell you, we can touch the world When we meet them all at their need We can touch them where they are help them to believe, toucht the world (Bridge) Round the globe people need to know the answer's theirs today, someway somehow We must let them know that God gives hope and Jesus is the way

Fascination

AESOP ROCK "Float"
Shooken to Casper. Illustrate beautiful disaster. Flight of the mothership lift to badger the male-factor. Marionette vs. the threat of wire cutter function. Stereotypical grinch bashing your pumpkins. Plug. Try to count up your warrior hatchling batch before gestation segment ended and head a platoon of embryonic remnants to the game board. Release Japanese beetle swarm to counter the spread of bitch crops, demolish the harvest and herd colony out immediate. One massive attack. Hunted, confronted and gutted. Most pungent component cloned in outrageous bunches. From the grimacing faces to the knots in my shoelaces, I'm a show you all the phases of a fuck up. Plucking the petals but every rose had its thorn. Consider that first warning, second will be good times, laughs and epitaphs. As a matter of basic principle next I set my boat a sail. I won't always be there for your tugging on my coat tails. Family stuck. Voyage of the S.S. Martyr. Who you think put that unseen iceberg in the water? Manufacture flotsam and jetsam from out your charter. We got the once pushovers pushing back a little harder now, blink. I think I can. I got grips. Muckraker major spin circles 'round sunken ships. Walk an invisible city of lost clans and he's jealous cuz my silhouette had more dimensions than his game plans. Fascination. Fascination. And everything I do I'm fascinated with, That's why I pass the hated wasteland with a grin, cuz in the end I got my passions while you splash in a puddle of trying to pick apart the puzzle. Fascination. Fascination. And everything I do I'm fascinated with. That's why I pass the jaded grips of competitors who initiate disturance with a smirk, cuz I feel I got direction in my work. And everything I touch magnificent. Picking apart a drunken township. Sitting in the rain rusting the nails my crown's bound with. If I had an anchor I would lay it in the dirt and mark today the day the earth stood still while I complete my search. You honor delusions and falsified life comfort systems as boy in the bubble huddled up to simple simon subtle. Born tomahawk. Shock the peanut gallery loopy. Debate the cutesy, groupie, cupie doll community. And I'm hung in a virtual skin and bones emaciated ringworm circus freak bloodthirsty intern trainee urchin feast with a delectable style compiled of that which stands to buff a child's yellow brick vision of slick living. I observe the stories from my fire escape observatory. First I herd the glory, then desert the herbs that word it poorly, understood? Well, maybe a pat on the back for the lucky losers who truly felt they were born to touch the music. I catalog cats as welcome mats, and for the ones insisting on dimming the stars I wipe my snearkers extra hard. I wish upon a penny toss that every servant will betray his gatekeeper and leap to reap the freedom fighter mad galaxy. Huff the war gas vapors and cram hard for tomorrow. Brother, I own twice my wiehgt in patience. Be it padded cubicle or beautiful tomb, I'll be listening 'til you whistling that more suitable tune.

Baby Britain

Elliot Smith "Xo"
Baby Britain feels her best Floating over a sea of vodka Separated from the rest Fights problems with bigger problems Sees the ocean fall and rise Counts the waves that somehow didn't hit her Water pouring from her eyes Alcoholic and very bitter For someone half as smart You'd be a work of art You put yourself apart And I can't help until you start We knocked another couple back The dead soldiers lined up on the table Still prepared for an attack They didn't know they'd been disabled Felt a wave a rush of blood You won't be happy 'til the bottle's broken And you're out swimming in the flood You kept back you kept unspoken For someone half as smart You'd be a work of art You put yourself apart And I can't help until you start You got a look in your eye When you're saying goodbye Like you wanna say hi The light was on but it was dim Revolver's been turned over And now it's ready once again The radio was playing crimson and clover London bridge is safe and sound No matter what you keep repeating Nothing's gonna drag me down To a death that's not worth cheating For someone half as smart You'd be a work of art You put yourself apart And I can't help until you start For someone half as smart You'd be a work of art You put yourself apart And I can't help until you start

Memphis, Tennessee

MASON JENNINGS "In The Ever"
I was born in a gold mine You were born by the sea Without nothin’ we got somethin’ in Memphis Tennessee, girl Memphis Tennessee Rain outside my window Rain inside my head The loneliness inside my heart Emptiness in my bed, girl Emptiness in my bed You’ve got the love That I need That I’m dreamin’ of I was born to love you You were born to resist I would give everything I've got To live inside your kiss, girl To live inside your kiss You’ve got the love That I need That I’m dreamin’ of I was born in a gold mine you were born by the sea without nothin’ we got nothin’ in Memphis Tennessee, girl Memphis Tennessee Memphis Tennessee, girl Memphis Tennessee
