JOHN DENVER lyrics - Some Days Are Diamonds

San Francisco Mabel Joy

Original and similar lyrics
(Newbury/ Costerman) His daddy was an honest man, just a red dirt Georgia farmer. His mother lived her short life having kids and baling hay. He had fifteen years and he ached inside to wander, so he jumped a freight in Waycross and wound up in L.A. The cold nights had no pity on that Waycross, Georgia farm boy. Most days he went hungry, then the summer came. He met a girl known on the Strip as San Francisco's Mabel Joy. Destitution's child born of an L.A. street called shame. Growing up came easy in the arms of Mabel Joy Laughter found their mornings, brought a meaning to his life Yes, the night before she left, sleep came and gave that Waycross country boy a dream of Georgia cotton and a California wife. Sunday morning found him standing 'neath the red light at her door, when a right cross sent him reeling, put him face down on the floor In place of Mabel Joy he found a merchant mad marine who growled 'Your Georgia neck is red, aw, but sonny, you're still green.' He turned twenty-one in a gray rock federal prison. The old judge had no mercy for a Waycross country boy. Staring at those four gray walls in silence, Lord, he'd just listen for the midnight freight he knew could take him back to Mabel Joy. Sunday morning found him lying 'neath the red light at her door, with a bullet in his side he cried, 'Have you seen Mabel Joy?' Stunned and shaken, someone said, 'Why she don't live here no more. She left this house four years today, they say she's looking for some Georgia farm boy.'

Make The Sun Come Out

ATMOSPHERE "Sad Clown Bad Fall #10"
About noonish, I woke up to the music Blaring outta the clock I inherited from pops After snooze is hit twice or trice I climb off of this madras to go find my life Where's my wifey at? Wait, that's right She slept at her sister's, 'cause we had a fight last night Looks like one of her cat's got sick That's either vomit or shit, right next to the fridge There's no coffee left, just tea, green Did my best to try to make believe that it was caffeine After a minute, I had a cold shower And oh, I was pissed off at no hot water Hello landlord as I get dressed Expressed my stress in the message that I left So when you get a chance, please call me Gotta go, just found cat shit in the clean laundry And yesterday's pants is the option There's already money in the front pocket No snow yet, but it's still freezing So I throw on a coat with a hoodie underneath it Ignore all the bills on the table 'Cause I don't love 'em - fuck 'em, who told them I was faithful Shoes, keys, wallet and my temper Out the front door into a cold November Now wait a minute, look who got a parking ticket I live here, why I need a fucking permit? I guess underground rap has its perks 'Cause all of the sudden the speakers don't wanna work Stereo is dead, no lights, no features And hold up, the heater ain't on either It must be a fuse, at least it starts I dip to the shop that sells the car parts And the cashier is like, man I don't know shit But you ain't gonna treat me like I don't know shit Bob, that's your job Bob, do your job Bob Sell me a fuse and point me to the door knob Installed the fuse and let the heater blow Music comes on, thermometer is three below Son's mom calls, I answer it on speaker phone At same damn time, someone backs into my vehicle Turn the auto-pilot on man I just wanted to go to the studio to write a song man Meltdown now, might as well ?blank out? ?Shine'll come back? once we pull up to Ant's house That's the place I bury, all of the weight I carry Southside basement, that's like my sanctuary I love life - that's what this one's about So go ahead and hit record and ?let? the sun come out, now

Bring light to the situation, maybe, you know, try to find your own personal message in that incident, that experience and try to move forward [Battle Verse 1 - Ab-Soul:] Y'all got me, everything good, y'all can hear me? Before we start, lemme just say this, lemme just say this I'm dating you Day Wait, wait, pause No gay shit What's the difference between a date and a day anyway Day? A date is a day that's marked I'm smart, and just cause I know you love 'em so much I came with name flips for days, tailored just for Day I'm expecting Day to base his verse on data based on turds My database said Day the basehead that date a basehead Is he dope? No Who gave Day the base, ball is what we do best Flock his projects, that's a home run, Day The baseball is what we do best Carpe diem, that's how you say seize the day in French I stand behind these bars for the rest of my life I will never see the light of day again Now witnessing this rare occasion I bear fruits of my labor this grape is green I gotta eat on the go Day I hope they told you that everything that Soul say don't go a long way Don't go a long way, what? A ho in Chipotle, no This is food for thought, from a dog on top We been nuts There was a fool who thought we was new to this But who knew this would end up, a glow stick and a uterus That's light in a box And that's light, that's light But light like to lick twat a lot so that's right That's what y'all call street? No tales from the Crip this evening, he slip Seems he forgot what the C meant It's your dumbass fault that last part was so concrete But I guess you'd have to be Ken to get that bar b, pardon me I bet right about now you feelin' like Jordan down in the Jordan Downs In fact it's crazy that you even play ball to clear your thoughts before raw backwards And that's cool, but for this round, save the bull before you let the Jordan downs and Jordan down Now, as for the crew Well, uhh, the villain been itchin' to skin a dog And this nigga bought, what, a hundred and three dalmatians? It's safe to say your mob of dots won't make it And I'm a fan first But it won't take too many seconds to leave you in a damn urn You deserve this disservice I put this man in ERs if he don't got no manners, man word I'm expectin' some etiquette in your segment kid I brought you to the 'Stu to show how we do So all them antics and funny shit you do for the cameras don't get aired here They can't see you Wave your title to this tidal wave, we do And you don't appear to be a peer to me, forreal You should kneel to me or somethin' Fuck it, to keep it 100 You're nil to me, that's nothing Heard they been raisin' raisins down on Grape Street, that's crazy right? That's what happens when you expose them grapes to too much daylight So your chances of standin' Much smaller than my plan to defeat you Wait, what, do I gotta put it in photosynthesis or somethin', son? Shed some light on Day? 'Til he's cropped out No not now, I won't need a plant to defeat you The sequel, this movie, won't need to be continued You finally encountered somethin' you can't counter, coward You're counterfeit You ain't gotta be in a Walgreen's pharmacy To see quill drug over the counter After your mother consumed you, you were the fruit of the womb After you were born, I'm sure you wore Fruit of the Loom Now I'm tryna figure out, is you from Grape Street, Crip? Or just another fruit in this room? It's crucial, you choose, I'm sure you don't want me to assume I should be against the law to run into Cause we all know in LA I'm double you, all so true Today is the day I split Day in two What the fuck has battle rap turned Day into? Are you from Gotham or from Watts?, Are you Batman, Spawn, or Davon? Did you really think "Paul Walker" was a dope song? If so, you were wrong Hold on, I got one more, and don't lie to me Do you really have a Batmobile outside, my G? Don't be so transparent, this nigga's light - through If you don't know what transparent means, let me enlighten you If it's transparent, that means that it lets the light through So I should smack this trans' parents for lettin' light through Like, he nerve of this cat Lyin' with a motionless emotion This nigga Day all bitch Somebody get Quill a quilt before Quill get kilt Do Quill got skill at all, homie? It was some Braveheart shit, all I heard was Nas, homie Did you really expect to last, Day? You know Revelations say that we livin' in the last days I mean, I see you skimmed through Genesis and Timothy but did you get to that page? You got Gats? You think your little arm'll get in the way of Armageddon? Forget it Day, no, really, forget this day If I had a time machine, I'd go back in time to see Just how many people would say "Yes" to Day Nobody, fam, nobody, fam That's why I'm ahead to day No, no body fam, that's why I'm a head today No, nobody fam, that's why I'm ahead of Day Somebody check the clock, I think I'm ahead a day Send him to the choppin' block, off with the head of Day It's only right I be blunt to Lyt I only gave Lyt a match to light a blunt I see I should have used the lighter instead Chill Loc, we ain't smokin' no purple We need the fire instead When I think of daylight, I think of shit like Breakfast, morning, birds singin', kids playin' See where I'm goin'? That means you better break fast, or I'll have your family mournin'' When that bird sings, kid, I ain't playin' and you know it But you know what?

Light Years

JAMIROQUAI "The Return Of The Space Cowboy"
People tell me I'm no good Cos I'm expressin' all my sentiments Now I got to channel all my vehemence For the benefit of my self defence And you can be a do gooder But true sincerity ain't charity It can take a life time to be How you wanna be. You can be light years Away from serious intention And I thought I knew it all Someday I'd get to turn mankind This way If you don't know you can be light years Away from your true destination. No conscious escalation Until I get with good vibration I'm never gonna get to use that use that earthly power Substitutes Can never take the place of peace of mind Losing all sense of direction. When you're light years. Too far away to turn you back on substitution There is no u-turn on a one way route Goin' up when I learn to love the life I can bite the fruit Now I got sunshine in my life. Light years Never to return to Babylon See money don't make a man But if you really want you get there anyway you can.

THE WHO "Who Are You"
Mother was an incubator Father was the contents of a test tube in the ice box In the factory of birth My name is 905, And I've just become alive I'm the newest populator Of the planet we call Earth In suspended animation My childhood passed me by If I speak without emotion Then you know the reason why Knowledge of the universe Was fed into my mind As my adolescent body Left its puberty behind And everything I know is what I need to know And everything I do's been done before Every sentence in my head Someone else has said At each end of my life is an open door Automatically defrosted When manhood came on time I became a man I left the 'ice school' behind Now I'm to begin The life that I'm assigned A life that's been used before A thousand times I have a feeling deep inside That somethin' is missing It's a feeling in my soul And I can't help wishing That one day I'll discover That we're living a lie And I'll tell the whole world The reason why Well, until then, everything I know is what I need to know And everything I do's been done before Every sentence in my head Someone else has said At each end of my life is an open door

Fraction Of A Man

JERROD NIEMANN "Free The Music"
I don't buy that free lip service Suits and rich folks don't make me nervous, no But I respect the law and those below the clay And I don't answer to those who question My job, my lingo or my religion see I know well those are choices I made [Chorus:] I take the high in the road Give the light of the load I live my life with passion and love I'm a man, not a fraction of Me and my friends tend to spend time Laughing at jokes with the same ol punch lines Still I wouldn't trade those wasted days Oh, that's right And I don't always learn my lesson Haven't left the best first impressions And my baby knows I'm stubborn and stuck in my ways [Repeat Chorus x2] Aw, lets play The eagle flies with the right and left wings I'm partial to farmers with small town families No, I don't forget where I was born and raised And I don't claim to be a Rhodes scolar I'm rough on the edges, blue in the collar But I ain't alone, I'm feeling proud to say [Repeat Chorus x2] I take the high in the road Give the light of the road, aw I live my life with passion and love I'm man not a fraction of I take the high in the road.
