You Can't Stop The Music

Original and similar lyrics
And so Norman decides to stop living out his fantasy of being a rock star and accept reality. This is the end for Norman but not for us because there will always be someone ready to take his place -- after all, euerybody's a star! You Can't Stop The Music Let's all raise a glass To the rock stars of the past, Those that made it, Those that faded, Those that never even made the grade, Those that we thought would never last. Singers come and go, And stars fade away. They vanish in the haze And they're never seen again, But the music just keeps playing on. They can't stop the music, They can't stop the music, They can't stop the music playing on. I've been half a million places, I've seen half a million people who stare, I've been a star and down and out, I've been put on, sat on, punched and spat on, They've called me a faggot, a spiv and a fake, They can knock me down and tread on my face, They can't stop the music playing on. Let's all raise a glass To the rock stars of the past, Those that made it, Those that faded, Those that never even made the grade, Those that we thought would never last. Singers come and go, And stars fade away. They vanish in the haze And they're never seen again, But they can't stop the music playing on.

Music Is Crap

Custard
Red eyes blue gaze, you look like hell today Step out on parade, you do it so well Your favourite shirt, those shoes that you bought in Perth Dumb Hair smart slacks, let's rock at the rails CHORUS Ooooh…. Music is crap aliens told me so Better than that, we're gonna let you know Just listen up, become a receiver Then let's space out, when you're a believer That's what religions for Music is crap Think of your friends, then put one on the door Everything's free, but we're still poor Don't matter what you like, aliens hate it Pop rock metal shop, they just berate it And I've found They dig the silence, hate the sound So pick up your telescopes, put your guitars down That's what I've found..

Got To Rock On

KANSAS "Audio-Visions"
(Steve Walsh) It's no funny hanging around winter seems so numbing Getting fat where I sit down do you suppose it's old age coming I get this feeling I'm no good for nothing life has led me wrong Once in a while it makes it all worthwhile if I can sing this song Got to rock on I can't be this way I'm hanging around but wait till music's in season That's when I'm high that is how I play and I do it the best that's all I need for a reason Can't think straight can't think at all staring out the window Hear the band I hear them call everything will disappear and I get the feeling I can conquer anything gets in my way Don't need no doctor 'caus I know exactly what I need today I Got to rock on I can't be this way I'm hanging around but wait till music's in season That's when I'm high that is how I play and I do it the best that's all I need for a reason The sun beats down upon me and it looks as tough that spring Has waited long enough to get here she knows that I must Sing about her future oh sing about her past I love to play my music And I try to make it last but sometimes summer comes too fast I got to rock on I can't be this way (cont.)

The sun sets on a saturday night and the keys are in my hand Jamie says that she wants to stay in but she just don't Understand I worked all week at the restaurant and i just need to cut loose So if you feel like me get your brand new shoes meet me at 1st avenue No excuses let the music rock your body right [Chorus] No more sorrow We might not be here tomorrow So just live for the moment and dance your life away The clock says it's a quarter past 2 But we just don't wanna leave If we can't dance on the ceiling we'll be dancing in the street No excuses let the music rock your body right [Chorus]
