JETHRO TULL lyrics - Under Wraps

Paparazzi

Original and similar lyrics
Paparazzi, can't make the man. Paparazzi, can't break the man. Next to the transit lounge see the Paparazzi tears. No-one came in today from Boston or Tangiers. And in departures --- only faceless trippers trip, loaded with duty free held in white knuckle grip. Snap it up, flash away --- steal a camel for a day. Break the story in heavy type --- the news is running late tonight. Be-decked with Nikon necklaces hear the Paparazzi cries. Under their noses walk the famous in disguise. Conspicuously huddled there but no-one stops to look. They've got their crayons out to colour in the book. Snap it up, flash away --- steal a camel for a day. Break the story in heavy type --- Paparazzi won't be home tonight. Paparazzi --- write it down. Paparazzi --- turn it around. Paparazzi --- take it, fake it, break it. 'Cos it's a story. Now someone's cut the lines communication's down. All photo film is fogged. Celebrities surround and jab their fingers at me. They kiss but I can't tell. Even poor Paparazzi must have privacy as well. Snap it up, flash away --- steal a camel for a day. Break the story in heavy type --- the news is running late tonight. Snap it up, flash away --- steal a camel for a day. Break the story in heavy type --- Paparazzi won't be home tonight.

Tupelo Mississippi Flash

JERRY REED "Nashville Underground"
I'm gonna tell you a story that's all about This job I had one time as a talent scout I had a hard day at the office and the boss wasn't in town The day this hired legged guitar picker just happened to come around Well, he walks into my office with a great big grin And folks that's where my story really begins He said, "Son my name is Boregard Rippy I come to you from Tupelo Mississippi I write songs that'll sing like a bird I play licks on my guitar like you ain't never heard" "But I'm down on my luck, things are just a little slack I gotta quarter in my pocket and a shirt on my back But you buy me some supper, give me a place I can sleep" He said, "I'll sing you some songs That'll knock your head to creak, I got talent boy" Said, "Back home they call me the Tupelo Mississippi Flash" Well, I knew I was in a room with some kind of a nut When he pulled out that pack of used cigarette butts So that's when I told him,'We can't use you today? So I handed the boy a dollar and I sent him on his way Well, the boss got back and we both had a laugh When I told him 'bout the Tupelo Mississippi Flash And pretty soon I had the story circlin' around About this Mississippi nut that we had in our town I said,'Watch him everybody, the boy's squirrely He walks around callin' himself the Tupelo Mississippi Flash? Well, and it happened one day while I was drivin' to my home I just happened to have my car radio on When I heard the jockey ravin' about a brand new smash By a kid called the Tupelo Mississippi Flash Well, I almost wrecked my automobile I went through a red light, I hit the traffic cop, why Well, my story's got an ending and it's short and sweet The boss man he fired me and left me out in the street But I got a new job now and I'm learnin' real fast I'm drivin' the bus for the Tupelo Mississippi Flash And his Cadillac, I'm driving that for him too And that yacht he's got, and his aeroplane Well, chauffeur, so good, I always say Tupelo Mississippi, who ever heard of it, why I'll kill the boy Help him somebody

Beauty And A Thug

JAHEIM "Still Ghetto"
(feat. Mary J. Blige) [Mary J. Blige:] So burgundy, the window to his soul It seems he tapes his eyes closed, From huffin on, that's what he's puffin on. His style is rough, he wears his hair in cornrolls, His jeans hang loose and low So his di..opps he cain't be comfortable I mean, he's gotta be comfortable. [Jaheim:] Now she's the type that's compared to a rose that grew from the concrete, So sweet ya know, From the streets yo. Now she's the opposite of he, Have you ever seen a lion sleep on the bossom of a sheep It's beautiful. Yeah thug though. [Both: (chorus)] She's so beautiful and he's a thug, They're so different yet they're in love. He's so thugged out and she's so beautiful, They're so perfect cause they're in love. [Mary J. Blige:] Picture this, his warm velvet voice on a cold winters night, Sugar free, bitter truth. Building life from a slang so divine. Soul to soul, their flesh pressed, From a firm of onyx tenderness. He signed his name with a venom kiss, Upon a heart, I never heard of such bliss. [Jaheim:] Now she's the opposite of he, Such as a butterfly and he's a killer bee. Yeah, she becomes a victim to his sting, And he's amazed by the colors of her wings. And the life he's led has left him with some scars, But, she viewed them all as mid-beauty marks. The moral of the story, plain as can be, He loved her cause, He is me. [Chorus: x2] Da Da-da-da da da da-da-da da She's beautiful and he's a thug, Made for each other 'cause they're in love. She's a petal and he's a thorn, From a different type of story since they were born. [Chorus: x2]

It's Time

JAMIE MCDELL
Nothing really seems that different, though my whole world has changed, And my mind has never felt so distant, and my thoughts are miles away, Then you cared then you dared, then you opened up a window to my right, There it goes I lost control, Now it’s written on the pages of my life. And the story is brought to life, Trash my pride, Cause we’re burning out tonight, And it’s breaking me, Remember every slight affection, now we’re flying to Amsterdam, Now you’re my one addiction, every part of who I am, Now we’re lost, but at what cost, Now the silver linings turned a darker grey, And I know to let go, is the only chance we’ll have to fly away, And the story is brought to life, Trash my pride, Cause we’re burning out tonight, And it’s breaking me, And my saviour steps back in line, but I’ll be fine, so I’m learning now it’s time, for my silly little dream Now we’re lost, but at what cost, Now the silver linings turned a darker grey, And I know to let go, is the only chance we’ll have to fly away, And the story is brought to life, Trash my pride, Cause we’re burning out tonight, And it’s breaking me, And my saviour steps back in line, but I’ll be fine, so I’m learning now it’s time, for my silly little dream for my silly little dream. [x3]

Lover, You Should've Come Over

JEFF BUCKLEY "Grace"
(J.Buckley) Looking out the door I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners Parading in a wake of sad relations As their shoes fill up with water And maybe I'm too young To keep good love from going wrong But tonight, you're on my mind so you never know Broken down and hungry for your love With no way to feed it Where are you tonight? Child, you know how much I need it. Too young to hold on And too old to just break free and run Sometimes a man gets carried away, When he feels like he should be having his fun Much too blind to see the damage he's done Sometimes a man must awake to find that, really, He has no-one... So I'll wait for you... And I'll burn Will I ever see your sweet return, Oh, will I ever learn? Oh, Lover, you should've come over Say it's not too late. Lonely is the room the bed is made The open window lets the rain in Burning in the corner is the only one Who dreams he had you with him My body turns and yearns for a sleep That won't ever come It's never over, My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder It's never over, all my riches for her smiles when I slept so soft against her... It's never over, All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter It's never over, she's the tear That hangs inside my soul forever Oh, but maybe I'm just too young to keep good love From going wrong Oh... lover you should've come over... Yes, (I) feel too young to hold on I'm much too old to break free and run Too deaf, dumb, and blind To see the damage I've done Sweet lover, you should've come over Oh, love I'm waiting for you Lover, you should've come over 'Cause it's not too late.
