JOHN DENVER lyrics - Christmas, Like A Lullaby

Marvelous Toy

Original and similar lyrics
When I was just a wee little boy. Full of health and joy. One Christmas morning I received A marvelous little toy. A wonder to be hold it was Many colours bright. And the moment I layed eyes on it It became my heart's delight. It went 'zzzip' when it moved, 'Bopp' when it stopped, 'Brrr' when it stood still. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will. The first time that I picked it up. I had a big surprise. For right on it's bottom Were two green buttons That looked like big green eyes. I first pushed one. And then the other. And then I pushed on its lid. And when I set it down again This is what it did. It went 'zzzip' when it moved, 'Bopp' when it stopped, 'Brrr' when it stood still. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will. It first marched left. Then marched right And then marched under a chair. And when I looked where it had gone It wasn't even there. I started to cry. My daddy laughed. He knew that I would find. When I turned around my marvelous toy Chugging from behind. It went 'zzzip' when it moved, 'Bopp' when it stopped, 'Brrr' when it stood still. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will. Well, the years have passed Too quickly it seems. I have my own little boy. And yesterday I gave to him My marvelous little toy. His eyes nearly popped right out of his head. He gave the squeal of glee Neither one of us knows just what it is, But he loves it just like me. It still goes 'zzzip' when it moves, 'Bopp' when it stoppes, 'Brrr' when it stands still. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will. I never knew just what it was And I guess I never will.

The Remnant

JOSH RITTER "So Runs The World Away"
I know who you are old man keep running I caught your trail as you left the pines Out into the fields where you couldn't hide nowhere Just a thin stitch up against the rising line And up through the blue I knew the stars were tumbling Up through the blue I knew the star were tumbling I know who you are old man keep running I tracked you down by the look in the eyes Of a thousand gone faces pressed against their windows Horses hiding in the willows 'til the storm passed by And a fine gray dust seemed to settle on the future A fine gray dust seemed to settle in between Your hat and the dapple of my appaloosa The only living things that I could see And up through the blue I knew that stars were tumbling Up through the blue I knew the stars were tumbling I know who you are old man keep running I walked across the bottom of the lake below Your boat and did you know that when you landed I was watching As the sky turned dark as the eyes of a foal And I'll know you by the shift of the wind in the cobwebs The sawdust swirls in the fins of the bullheads The craters that you made when you lay down dreaming Strange constellations that you gave new meaning By the teeth marks you made on bones from the ice age Then smell of the cinder burning slow in your rib cage Listen in the distance and you'll hear my shadow Footsteps soft as the tread of an echo And up through the blue I knew the stars were tumbling Up through the blue I knew the stars were tumbling And the ground will open out into a mouth below us And the mouth will open out into the empty sky And the whistle as we hurtle through the halls of onyx The only sound around us as we go by And I'll follow you out through the wells of charcoal Moonlit stones around the cones of a black hole Through the fields where grow the ever and forever The tessellated blooms with the voids at their centers Through the million rooms in a bead of luminescence The filaments on the looms of dimension The pillars of creation where they make the planets The billion tiny teeth that tear the charge from your atoms In a trillion tiny bites they'll eat the meat from the pearl And throw your soul away a cold grey little world And nothing that is hidden will be revealed And nothing that is hidden will be revealed And nothing that is hidden will be revealed

Welcome

MAXWELL "Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite"
I guess it never was The way I thought it was I say this only just because You never came to love I guess it wasn't so Guess that's how the story goes You didn't dig my flow You didn't dig my flow [1] - But you're still welcome,welcome Anytime you want some Make yourself at home cause you're Welcome Tonight will make one week Tonight's the anniversary And if you don't talk to me Tomorrow will never be [Repeat 1] Six in the morning everything's nothing Six in the eve everything's still the same Wish you knew I just wish that you knew that I really love you deep like a mother loves a child I wanna love you like hot water running wild Inside you momma sophisticated style Check my dictionary I guess it never was the way I thought it was I say this only because You never came to love Welcome

Cowboy

ANYA MARINA "Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II"
There was a dive bar and a cowboy Well, not a cowboy really, but he wore the hat And there was someone who looked like me At least a little, but not exact He said, "I'm gonna take you out proper You and me are going to the zoo." And I pretended that I was bored And I could take my eyes off of you All I had to do was ask I never knew that this would last I never knew what I was in for This town thinks it's got your number It's unlisted, but they can wonder and guess and speculate on you and me Little did I know, Little did I see Little did I know just how far our little car could go Little did I know Said he was damaged over whiskey A kind of Kerouac over cigarettes "Let me guess, you're a gambler, too?" He said, "I bet I marry you." Well, I was talking like a bad-ass, too A kind of animal all my own "No one's ever gonna tie me down, Especially not some Romeo." All I had to do was look You were such an open book How could I miss what I was in for? Go on ahead and be a loner Pur on your distant look and roam around the west Like Jack and Neal and Dean Little did I know And I drove a thousand miles for you I even bent the rules, it's true I swear to everything above I never knew you at all, my love

Jesus and Mary Chain "Automatic"
JESUSPeter will deny my in Just a few hours. Three times will deny me, And that's not all I see. One of you here dining, One of my twelve chosen Will leave to betray me. JUDASCut out the dramatics! You know very well who... JESUSWhy don't you go do it? JUDASYou want me to do it! JESUSHurry, they are waiting... JUDASIf you knew why I do it... JESUSI don't care why you do it! JUDASTo think I admired you. For now I despise you. JESUSYou liar. You Judas... JUDASYou want me to do it! What if I just stayed here And runied your ambition. Christ you deserve it. JESUSHurry, you fool. Hurry and go. Save me your speeches, I don't want to know. Go! APOSTLESLook at all my trials and tribulations Sinking in a gentle pool of wine. What's that in the bread? It's gone to my head, 'Till this morning is this evening, life is fine.Always hoped that I'd be an apostle. Knew that I would make it if I tried. Then when we retire, we can write the Gospels, So they'll all talk about us when we've died. JUDASYou sad, pathetic man, see where you've brought us to, Our ideals die around us and it's all because of you. And now the sadest cut of all: Someone has to turn you in. Like a common criminal, like a wounded animal. A jaded mandarin, A jaded mandarin, As a jaded, jaded, faded, jaded, jaded mandarin. JESUSGet out they're waiting! Get out, they are waiting! Oh, they're waiting for you! JUDASEverytime I look at you I don't understand Why you let the things you did get so out of hand. You'd have managed better if you had it planned... APOSTLESLook at all my trials and tribulations Sinking in a gentle pool of wine. Don't disturb me now. I can see the answers, Till this evening is this morning, life is fine.Always hoped that I'd be an apostle. Knew that I would make it if I tried. Then when we retire, we can write the Gospels, So they'll all talk about us when we've died. JESUSWill no one stay awake with me? Peter, John, James? Will none of you wait with me? Peter, John, James?

A Girl Named Hope

ATMOSPHERE "God Loves Ugly"
She abandoned me left out in the cold no suprises i guess that's how it goes sits across from me in a booth in this dive i contemplate how much more i can survive but-how i'm alive so i should be content then tell why the hell my whole world is bent i was sento make and frustrate the population inbetween the alcohol and the copulation what you callin' it if you build it i will break it wait, what's wrong, how you doin' naa, save it gave a fraction of all i had to give i guess i hold a grudge becuase you still got my rib with ya beautiful eyes, scrupulous lies now watch this circus clown run around in circles and try seems like all i get to eat is Hope girl if we got along better we'd be dope oh walls, they surround me lonliness has found me i've heard as much as i complain i'm lovin' it and i only mention it so that i can rub it in wake up to the sunlike shake off lastn ight check what's left and try to get the rest right decision spklitting headache lifting symptoms matching mamma was afraid of it knowledge of self ain't as evil as they made it call it what you want if you bild it they will break it the plain truth, there's no substitute but sometimes she wears a disguise-yes you fo a story teller deals with life not Hope girl if we got along better we'd be dope And that's the sound that a dog will make when he's just been hit with a car that's the tone that hits close to home when the cocaine outlives the star that the noise that disrupts the boys when the q-ball packs the bowl and these are the words that disturb the earth when i walk away with your Hope
