Bethlehem Town

Original and similar lyrics
Oh, Mary, Joseph, rest your eyes Try not to think of the ending World full of empty, He will die But tonight He is still just a child The silent night drifts all away And the angels are dancing around you There's the joy of knowing He'll save the world Overshadowing the pain that He'll go through Have you cursed at the wind Have you cried to the heavens Have you fought with this mercy you don't understand When the wise men kneel down To kiss the hand of this king they found in Bethlehem town Will you hold back the years a while Will you dream that this man could always be a child And never carry all the weight Of the dirt and the distance and the company we keep Have you cursed at the wind Have you cried to the heavens Have you fought with this mercy you don't understand When the wise men kneel down To kiss the hand of this king they found in Bethlehem town And did the stars shine much brighter that night You gave birth to the death that would bring us to life And did the mystery keep you awake Was the sound of His little heart too much to take Oh, i don't understand When the wise men kneel down To kiss the hand of this king they found Have you cursed at the wind Have you cried to the heavens Have you fought with this mercy you don't understand When the wise men kneel down To kiss the hand of this king they found In Bethlehem town In bethlehem town In bethlehem town

Prophet

Jude "430 N. Harper Ave."
I guess I make my way OK, I guess I do I guess I get by, just like you I'm keeping to myself though, if you don't mind I don't want to leave any fingerprints Moving down the boulevard, the walk of fame The Japanese they're up against it trying to match their hand sizes with the household names And I just try to bob and weave and keep from bumping into furry fairy prostitutes And make it to the corner gonna lose myself inside outside news and I remember when I first had come to town And you suggested that I kneel and kiss the ground You were such a prophet then to me And you, you're nothing to me Nobody wants to help when you start with a please To supplicate is not the way you've got to put the other man down on his knees But that's not why I arrived, no that was not the reason Don't mind if I retire from a town without one just like a season. . . I remember when I first had come to town And you suggested I kneel and kiss the ground You were such a prophet then to me And you, you're nothing to me Bridge: Waltzing slowly in Counter time to your piercing cameras before me Moving closer I've Come to know that there's nothing in there to show me Pretty good show she said I kinda like your style Well, maybe we could go to bed and I could help you run the three-minute mile But first you gotta take the drinks you gotta learn to fake the smiles She was a piece of past her prime real estate a late great tit turnstile. . . I remember when I first had come to town And you suggested I kneel and kiss the ground You were such a prophet then, to me And you, you're nothing to me I remember when (Repeat)

Nothing Man

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN "The Rising"
I don't remember how I felt I never thought I'd live To read about myself In my hometown paper How my brave young life Was forever changed In a misty cloud of pink vapor Darlin' give me your kiss Only understand I am, the nothing man Around here, everybody acts the same Around here, everybody acts like nothing's changed Friday night, the club meets at Al's Barbecue The sky's still, the same unbelievable blue Darlin' give me your kiss Come and take my hand I am, the nothing man You can call me Joe Buy me a drink and shake my hand You want courage I'll show you courage you can understand The pearl and silver Restin' on my night table It's just me Lord, pray I'm able Darlin, with this kiss Say you understand I am, the nothing man I am, the nothing man

History

THE VERVE "A Northern Soul"
I wander lonely streets Behind where the old Thames does flow And in every face I meet Reminds me of what I have run from In every man, in every hand In every kiss, you understand That living is for other men I hope you two will understand I've got to tell you my tale Of how I loved and how I failed I hope you understand I've got to tell you my tale Of how I loved and how I failed I hope you understand These feelings should not be in the man In every child, in every eye In every sky, above my head I hope that I know So come with me in bed Because it's you and me, we're history There ain't nothing left to say When I will get you alone Maybe we could find a room Where we could see what we should do Maybe you know it's true Living with me is like keeping a fool< In every man, in every hand In every kiss, you understand That living is for other men I hope you know that I am me so come on I'm thinking about history And I'm living for history And I think you know about me Cause I am And one and one is two But three is company When you're thinking about the things you do And you're thinking about the things you do I want to tell you my tale How I fell in love and jumped out on my bail I hope you understand there's more in a smile than in a hand In every sky, in every kiss There's something that I might have missed Why am I going to A place that now belongs to you But you were weak and so was I Let's pick it up, let's even try To live today, so why not smile Don't dream away your life 'Cause it is mine Is that a crime (repeat) this life is mine The bed ain't made but it's filled full of hope I've got a skin full of dope

Boogie King

JERRY REED "Red Hot Picker"
Well now he rolled into High Point North Carolina In a 1929 Chevrolet cut down coupe Sportin' them alligator sneakers and wearin' that Real bright outta sight tight fittin' double knit and pinstriped suit He said folks I come from Hump Alabama My old man played doghouse bass and he was outta sight He taught me how to do my thing Makin' music in a redneck joint every Friday and Saturday night Said people call me the Boogie King I like to make all of God's chillun sing Stand back woman let me do my thing Uh careful I'm gonna lay my Saturday night move on ya again Boogie boogie boogie boogie Well now he come on so strong with them pearly teeth And them tailor made clothes and all that slick black hair That he had all them folks around High Point North Carolina Just scratchin' their heads sayin' I declare Well before too long he done opened a joint on the edge of town Called the King Of Clubs out on Highway One Where all the folks includin' the mayor and his cute little wife Used to come every night and just dig all the fun People really dug on the Boogie King They liked to hear the boy pick and sing They got all tore up when he done his thing Oh don't get close to me honey I might rub off on ya Well the Boogie King he just rocked right along And the town folks thought he done found him a home And was settlin' down until the day the boy turned up gone And so did all of the money from the local bank downtown Well the police said my it sure looked strange The day old Boogie King up and left town all the money left too But they said whoever done it really knowed his stuff Cause he was slick enough to get in there and get it and not leave a clue But I'll betcha in another little town somewhere There's a fast talkin' devil with slick black hair Makin' all them women say well I declare He calls his self the Boogie King Ah come in there sideways son with them hot licks Honey they call me Killer Dealer Ha ha ha the Nashville Thriller Ha ha ha ha ha how'd ya like that move I laid on ya there huh Ya can't get that at your local Five And Dime

Bethlehem

AARON SHUST "Unto Us"
O little town of Bethlehem How still we see thee lie Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight For Christ is born of Mary And gathered all above While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wondering love O morning stars together Proclaim the holy birth And angel sing to God the King And Peace to men on earth O little town of Bethlehem O little town of Bethlehem O little town of Bethlehem
