Here Come The People In Grey

Original and similar lyrics
I got a letter this morning with serious news that's gone and ruined my day, The borough surveyor's used compulsory purchase to acquire my domaine, They're gonna pull up the floors, they're gonna knock down the walls, They're gonna dig up the drains. Here come the people in grey they're gonna take me away to Lord knows where, But I'm so unprepared I got no time to pack and I got nothing to wear, Here come the people in grey, To take me away. Me and my baby's gonna get on a train that's gonna take us away, I'm gonna live in a tent, we're gonna pay no more rent we're gonna pay no more rates, We're gonna live in a field, we're gonna buy me gun, to keep the policemen away. I'm gonna pass me a brand new resolution, I'm gonna fight me a one man revolution, someway, Gonna beat those people in grey, But here come the people in grey, To take me away. The people in grey have gone and taken away my right to voice my complaint, Her Majesty's Government have sent me a form I must complete it today. But it's making me blue, don't wanna tell all my secrets to The people in grey. I'm gonna pass me a brand new resolution, I'm gonna fight me a one man revolution, someway, Gonna start my rebellion today. But here come the people in grey, To take me away. Oh, Lord, those people in grey, I gotta get back at those people in grey, Here come the people in grey, To take me away.

These Are Not My People

JOHNNY RIVERS "Anthology 1964-1977"
First your mama and your papa sent you to the finest schools Never let it be said that their little darling was a fool So with a credit card and your good name You were drawn like a moth to the flame To that crowd of the night where you more or less lost your cool You had 20-20 vision and still you are walking round blind And whether right or wrong, I'd still tag along behind Now if you think that's reality And girl that's where you wanna be It's time to say, you go your way and I'll go mine It's been a gas but I'm gonna have to pass These are not my people These are not my people Looks like the end, my friend I got to get in the wind, my friend You found yourself naked in the world with no place to hide Then you feel the pulse of your god and he has died Now you're a rebel that's got no cause Yeah, a tiger that's got no claws They promised you the world on a string but you know they lied You said you'd be back in a big black limousine But you know I'm inclined to believe it's not the kind you mean Cause when you fall down up off your cloud And you're just a little face in the crowd They're gonna throw you away like the last week's magazines It's been a gas but I think I'm gonna pass These are not my people These are not my people Looks like the end, my friend I got to get in the wind, my friend Looks like the end, my friend I got to get in the wind

Ukiah

THE DOOBIE BROTHERS "The Captain And Me"
(Tom Johnston) People rushin' everywhere If they'd only slow down once They might find something there Green trees and timber land People workin' with their hands For sure a different way to live Gonna keep my cabin at hand Retreat and live off the land All around Ukiah, wo The mountain streams that rush on by Show the fish a jumpin' And reflect the open sky The fresh clean smell of the pines Symbol of unchanging times All around this sacred land Strangely, though, I've found my way Right here I'm gonna stay In this land Ukiah, wo

WTO

PENNYWISE "Land Of The Free?"
I just can't understand and I don't know how anyone can cause with every passin' day it gets worse in every way, it's time that we make a stand, it's time that we make a stand Sit here and wonder why how many more people gotta die before we're gonna learn how many got to burn until we all realize, until we all realize See it everyday, it never goes away, never slowing, always growing, never going away This is the day, you'll see our way, we've had enough, some things are gonna change, the future's bright, people unite, better believe you're in for a fight Behind smiles and pageantry lies a vile and sadistic history, insidious design, deceitful and sublime, feeding on misery, feeding on misery See it everyday, it never goes away, never slowing, always growing, never going away This is the day, you'll see our way, we've had enough, some things are gonna change, the future's bright, people unite, better believe you're in for a fight The world's got a bad disease and I think I got a fucking remedy, molotov cocktail, freedom will prevail, a new world society We're not gonna be ignored, believe us this means war, something you can trust, you shouldn't fuck with us, not gonna take it anymore, we're not gonna take it anymore See it everyday, it never goes away, never slowing, always growing, never going away This is the day, you'll see our way, we've had enough, some things are gonna change, the future's bright, people unite, better believe you're in for a fight, this is the day, you'll see our way, we've had enough, some things are gonna change, the future's bright, people unite, look out, you're in for a fight

Line 'Em Up

JAMES TAYLOR "Hourglass"
I remember Richard Nixon back in '74 and the final scene at the White House door and the staff lined up to say good-bye, tiny tear in his shifty little eye, he said, 'nobody knows me, nobody understands. These little people were good to me, oh I'm gonna shake some hands.' Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. At that time my heart was all broke, I looked like ashes and smelled like smoke and I turned away from my loving kind, try to leave my body and live in my mind but it's much too much emotion to hold it in your hand. They've got waves out on the ocean, they're gonna wear away the land, Somebody line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Want you to line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Oh, I've seen corn in Kansas and I've seen picket fences and certain cowboy dances. I've gone lining up for shows, I've been safely placed in rows, sure I know how it goes. Another day goes by, little time machine, I'm raking my brain over what it might mean just to claim the time and to turn away, to make today today. Who waits for you, lonely tired old toad? It's your life laid out before you like the broken white line down the center of the road. Line 'em up line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Yeah, big moon landing, people are standing up, smiles for the loved ones, they go walking on down the aisles. Each re-engages stepping into the sun, I watch them turn like pages one by one by one, Want you to line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. Line 'em up, line 'em all up, line 'em up, line 'em all up. [Indecipherable French grunting]

Not Over Till The Fat Lady Plays The Demo

DE LA SOUL "De La Soul Is Dead"
(Make the bass come out so clear) POS: This song does not contain explicit lyrics but what it does contain is an udesired element. This element is known as the basehead the lowest of lowest of all elements that exist. And the sad thing is this particular element... is me brudda! Brother brother oh brother of mine We used to be down as partners in crime From our parents our name was forged I was the Beaver, you Curious George Wanted to dispose of this and that But curiosity had killed the cat At this age no wonder it was read But this was the fate that you were fed Throughout high school our minds we'd waste High off all the cheeba that we could taste Soon you had converted to nasal sports Every five minutes cocaine you'd snort Told me that you needed a stronger fix Stepped to the crack scene in '86 Unlike the other drugs where you had control This substance had engulfed your body and soul Now from me you lost all respect Said yo need to put that shit in check Wanted me to believe that you had tried But your mind and the craving had coincided Said there was a voice inside you that talked Which said you shouldn't stop but continue to walk Now the brother who could handle any drug Had just found the one that could pull his Plug (Background:) (Ya don't stop, ya don't, ya don't stop) (Ya don't stop, the body rock) DOVE: Yo, bro, got another rock for your hiking boots Gonna make you scream and loop three loops Gonna take you far on a freeway, okay Remember that day? Slipped me a smile for a 20 crack vial Guess what? Time to collect, correct Don't have a dime? It's payback time, payback time Don't cry the blues 'cause I got bad news Should I stab ya? Should I bite ya? Should I use my tools? No, I got another way to earn my defeat, ah! (Slam the child on the hard concrete) (Make the bass come out so clear) POS: Brother, brother, stupid brother of mine Started getting high at the age of nine Now at twenty-one you're lower than low Nowhere to turn, nowhere to go My dividends and wares started to disappear Where it ended up, I had an idea Barking you with the quickness, reversed intent Instead went to Pop and gave him the print Now Pop grew tired of being a mouse Finally told you to get the hell outta the house From there a mother figure came into play Claimed for you she saw a better day Now Mom was a product of Christ's rebirth Thought the only chance was to go to church Quitting this stuff you had tried before This time you claimed you'd really score Something I had to see to believe Put on my suit and to church I weaved PREACHER (Squirrel): My, my, my. What happened to the people? The people who used to care about what took place in the world today? I've been summoned here today to reach the people who still can be reached, to save the people who still can be saved. Can I get an Amen? Can I get an Amen? Hit me! Forgive us. Said it's taking over. Taking over the world. All it's doing is taking over. Where them crackers at? Them crackers that they serve, where they at? DOVE AND MIKEY ROADS (In background as choir): Said evil's taking over Said evil's taking over Said evil's taking over, evil's taking over The Lord's gonna forgive us, the Lord's gonna forgive us, Lord Said the Lord's gonna forgive us The Lord's gonna forgive us POS: Bullshit, didn't believe a lick To this fool fell off, well that would stick Soon you reach your front of calm Walked round by rehearsing psalms Then you smiled with the funky frown What do you know, the voice is back in town Mom would say it would soon go away You and I knew it was here to stay But the man helped you when you helped yourself That meant going to rehab for your health Finally it went and blew your cork Heard you moved to the comfortable streets of New York And when my friends see me and come and ask Yo, where's your brother at? I'll be the first to splash Yo, he's a basehead (- Yo know who that was?) (- No.) (- The guy from De La Soul. Pos. Posdnuos.) (- Who?) (- You heard of De La Soul, right?) (- Right.) (- Well he was the one from De La Soul.) (- The one with the real nappy hair.) (- The one with... the dark-skinned one.) (- With the glasses?) (- Yeah.) (- [Background] Yeah, the ugly one!) (Fuck you bitch!) (And kept goin'...)
