JOHN PRINE lyrics - Common Sense

Common Sense

Original and similar lyrics
You can't live together You can't live alone Considering the weather Oh my, how you've grown From the men in the factories To the wild kangaroo Like those birds of a feather They're gathering together And feeling Exactly like you They got mesmerized By lullabies And limbo danced In pairs Please lock that door It don't make much sense That common sense Don't make no sense No more Just between you and me It's like pulling When you ought to be shovin, Like a nun With her head in the oven Please don't tell me That this really wasn't nothing One of these days One of these nights You'll take off your hat And they'll read you Your rights You'll wanna get high Every time you feel low Hey, Queen Isabella Stay away from that fella He'll just get you Into trouble, you know? But they came here by boat And they came here by plane They blistered their hands And they burned out their brain All dreaming a dream That'll never come true Hey, don't give me no trouble Or I'll call up my double We'll play piggy-in-the-middle With you You'll get mesmerized By alibis And limbo dance in pairs Please lock that door It don't make much sense That common sense Don't make no sense No more

If I Only Had A Brain

JACKSON BROWNE
(Harold Arlen & E.Y. 'Yip' Harburg) [From the soundtrack album The Wizard of Oz in Concert: Dreams Do Come True] See, I can't scare anybody. They come from miles around To laugh in my face and eat in my field. Said a scarecrow swinging on a pole, To some blackbirds sittin' on a fence, 'Oh, the Lord gave me a soul, But, forgot to give me common sense.' Said the blackbirds, 'Well, well, well. What the thunder would you do with common sense?' Said the scarecrow,'Would be pleasin' just to reason out the reason of the wishes and the whyness and the whence' If I had an once of common sense... (If he had an ounce of common sense) (Well, what would you do Scarecrow?') I would while away the hours Conferin' with the flowers Consultin' with the rain And my head I'd be scratchin' While my thoughts were busy hatchin' If I only had a brain. I'd unravel every riddle, For every individle, In trouble or in pain. With the thoughts I'd be thinkin', I could be another Lincoln, If I only had a brain. Oh I- could tell you why, The ocean's near the shore. I could think of things I never thought before, Then I'd sit- and think some more. I would not be just a nothin', my head all full of stuffin', My heart all full of pain. I would dance and by merry, Life would be a dingle derry, If I only had a brain. If I only had a brain- (If he only had a brain.) I could tell you why The ocean's near the shore. I could think of things I never thought before And then I'd sit- and think some more. Ya, it would be kind of pleasin' To reason out the reason, for the things I can't explain. Then perhaps I'd deserve you, and be even worthy of you, If I only had a brain. I could dance and by merry, Life would be a dingle derry, If I only had a brain. If I only had a brain. (If he only had a brain.)

Geezers Need Excitement

THE STREETS "Original Pirate Material"
Geezerz need excitement If their lives don't provide them this they incite violence Common sense simple common sense Geezerz need excitement if their lives don't provide them this they incite violence Common sense simple common sense Out the club about three, to the take-away The shit-in-a-tray merchants, shops got special perchant for the disorderly Geezerz looking ordinary and a few looking leary Chips fly round the sound of the latest chart entry An incendiary waiting to blast No harm with the contest who can throw the furthest Behind the counter they look nervous, but Carry on cutting the finest cuts of chicken from the big spinning stick Then over flies a chip, flips, and hits you on the back You spin round on the attack 'Fuck you playing at he looks like a cheshire cat, almost falls down Your frowns and superman eye lasers don't even register By now you want to leather this twat And forever your gonna regret that, your choice of path So mash his head up and your girls now fed up But stop to think and it's never gonna be the Jackie Chan scene it could have been to end up Geezerz need excitement If their lives don't provide them this they incite violence Common sense simple common sense Geezerz need excitement If their lives don't provide them this they incite violence Common sense simple common sense So you owe someone money subbing scunny Best pay me billy - no worries One-fifty on sunday But in someway that turns into wednesday Then goes straight to pay on a hazy evening in the local bar-cafe What a way. What a way Just to recap for those at the back, this is everyday tit-for-tat you owe your dealer and can't pay back fee Suddenly he's the baddy So you tell your mates you could have him anyway, to look 'geez'. But he's a shady fuck, beamer three series, lock, stock and two fat fucks backing him up Can't convey enough of his desire for the paper stuff In a blunt fashion Billy's angry with a passion So please just accept it ain't happening And go back to your runnins 'Cos you might get yourself in trouble one of these days Geezerz need excitement If their lives don't provide them this they incite violence Common sense simple common sense Geezerz need excitement If their lives don't provide them this they incite violence Common sense simple common sense Get hold of this bird after pub closing hours Would your girl like this No don't think so somehow, in the winter showers But she'll never know and your face will never show shit This is how goes it and besides she was well fit And who could resist Move up to the next place, a smooth club to flex bass beats and your best mates all down Nice sound, smirnoff ice round. MC's clowning, ruud boyz frowning Everything's sweet everything's tucked-in. And round here were all downing. But all of a sudden though, just through the smoke, is your bird laughing and joking with a bloke Ain't just that either, as she moves closer, Miss-shape what looks like their lover - he's tonguing her. All rage sweeps up through your torso, your moreso ready to go over and show him whos man Football fan style Leave it in the can for a while, cos even as they smile you still got choices Don't listen to them voices And at the end of the day you may just have caused this So leave the forces Geezerz need excitement If their lives don't provide them this they incite violence Common sense simple common sense Geezerz need excitement If their lives don't provide them this they incite violence Common sense simple common sense.

We Don't Live Here No More

JOHN DENVER "Farewell Andromeda"
(Danoff) Make believe you're on a boat without water around. Picture yourself at a circus without any clowns. Pretend that you're on a highway without any end. Then empty the ashtray, sweep up the floor, put a lock on your door. If somebody calls in the morning, just say we don't live here no more. Draw me a picture of an island without any seas. Show me a map of the whole world without boundaries. Build me a home without windows or doors to go in. Then empty the ashtray, sweep up the floor, put a lock on your door. If somebody calls in the morning, just say we don't live here no more. Dream of the time when the tides ebbing now rise again. Then you will know that to die is not really to end. Living and dying are both your most intimate friends. So empty the ashtray, sweep up the floor, put a lock on your door. If somebody calls in the morning, just say we don't live here no more. If somebody calls in the morning, just say we don't live here no more.

Run To Me

CLAY AIKEN "Measure Of A Man"
Don't, you don't have to save my life No, you're not ready I can feel it Outside its raining but I'll just go home Someday your heart will just let him go As soon as you get that feeling you can start to live again As soon as the worst is over you can make it all make sense Right now I can't give you what you need As soon as you get that feeling Run to me Hush, you don't have to say a word Trust that I'm not gonna hate you for it Feels like my touch only brings back the pain Someday those memories will fade away As soon as you get that feeling you can start to live again As soon as the worst is over you can make it all make sense Right now I can't give you what you need As soon as you get that feeling Run to me How can I be brave enough to say good-bye I die inside without you ohhhhhhhh Can't you see its hard enough to walk away Don't look at me and make me wrong Been through this to make me strong As soon as you get that feeling you can start to live again As soon as the worst is over you can make it all make sense Right now I can't give you what you need As soon as you get that feeling Run to me
