Kurt Weill lyrics - Threepenny Opera

Solomon's Song

Original and similar lyrics
You all have heard of Solomon The wisest man on earth He understood humanity And so he cursed the hour of his birth And saw that all was vanity How great and wise was Solomon! And yet before the day was done The world could see where it would end His wisdom brought him to his bitter end How fortunate the man with none The next you see Julius Cae- -sar, what became of him? They showered praises on his name And yet they tore him limb from limb Just when he'd reached the height of his fame. How loud he cried: 'You too, my son!' And yet before the day was done The world could see where it would end His courage brought him to his bitter end How fortunate the man with none And now at least you see MacHeath His life hangs by a hair Yet while his reason still commanded There was no greater bandit Known or feared in all the land Then one day his heart was won And see, the day is not yet done And all can see where it will end His lusts have brought him to his bitter end. How fortunate the man with none

How Fortunate The Man With None

DEAD CAN DANCE "Into The Labyrinth"
You saw sagacious Solomon You know what came of him, To him complexities seemed plain. He cursed the hour that gave birth to him And saw that everything was vain. How great and wise was Solomon. The world however did not wait But soon observed what followed on. It's wisdom that had brought him to this state. How fortunate the man with none. You saw courageous Caesar next You know what he became. They deified him in his life Then had him murdered just the same. And as they raised the fatal knife How loud he cried: you too my son! The world however did not wait But soon observed what followed on. It's courage that had brought him to that state. How fortunate the man with none. You heard of honest Socrates The man who never lied: They weren't so grateful as you'd think Instead the rulers fixed to have him tried And handed him the poisoned drink. How honest was the people's noble son. The world however did not wait But soon observed what followed on. It's honesty that brought him to that state. How fortunate the man with none. Here you can see respectable folk Keeping to God's own laws. So far he hasn't taken heed. You who sit safe and warm indoors Help to relieve out bitter need. How virtuously we had begun. The world however did not wait But soon observed what followed on. It's fear of god that brought us to that state. How fortunate the man with none.

Bitter

ATMOSPHERE "SouthSiders"
[Verse 1:] Everything used to be so good then Now it seems like you're mad at my footprints I'm only trying to scribble in the book, man It's not my fault that y'all couldn't You must have a lot of free time Otherwise why are you trying to see mine Strain your neck, let the blame project But don't give yourself the same respect So independent but undependable We're all getting old, now take a mental note And stop being so covetous The crime is the punishment Now run and get a slither of dignity You ain't gotta be a figure of misery You don't want to be a victim to victory Listening to a bitter sweet symphony [Hook:] You're so bitter You call this a river in the winter This one is to recognize you Your jealousy needs an anthem too You're so bitter You're as cold as a river in the winter This one is to recognize you And all of these dreams that can't come true [Verse 2:] We used to get up in Uptown Then we hit the highway to run around Came home everybody wanna judge now Don't let them see you celebrate your touchdown Keep clutching those grudges Don't budge if no budget The old puppets show love in public But behind the back can't trust it Disgusted, repugnant Insulted, repulsive Discouraged, rejection No protection from your own reflection Chip on your shoulder big as a boulder Insecurities a slippery slope Got ya looking around for the sympathy vote Anything to give a little glimmer of hope [Hook] [Verse 3:] Treat love like a limited resource Fight for it like there's never gonna be more On the rooftops talk to the spaceships Like you've got 2Pac locked in the basement Get the bag, make the get away exit You get mad like your middle name desperate No net, better not get left back Yeah, you should probably protect that I'm trying to keep it simple, teeth to the nipple Beat my chisel, leave my initials Fly so far when you follow the signals Sky full of stars and all of them wishful Not only are we bitter but we're brittle The world's getting small, and everybody's little Go roll your eyeballs, toot your own whistle Don't ever stop waiting for the window [Hook]

Bitter World

ACE HOOD "Blood, Sweat & Tears"
Struggling my past, pain in my expressions Running on my last, avoid the deep depressions Beefing with the bottom I'm so afraid to fall in And all these fucking problems turning me into an alcoholic Where did I go wrong, I swear this can't be life 17 and pregnant that just can't be right In love with a man who fucking your friend depends on what you like This bitter earth Ah, this world is crazy, hate on my babies, gotta receive the sight Just ask the lord to give me the strength so they believe was right Andsmooth nigger who trying to get a home tonight Infesting the gun the type It's a cold world, keep your sweater close Made it be but see family the ones who hate the most That's the damn shame, how dare you doubt your blood Don't know my real father, how come you drop my love Alone, there's no one to hug He left me all alone, how could you leave your cub But fuck it I'm a man with or without your ass They ask about my pain, some things I wish that I had Just thank the man above, my mom considers my dad She working spending her last, whatever we wanted we had The struggle created a man, no longer your job demands No thoughts of counter I've failed and let's I've been through hell and back, but still I'm here to stand Mama need a house, so fuck it I'll buy some land Dying to be the greatest, but greater comes with patience Got my bizness right, and trust my mama good What more heart is just to say I made it out the hood You fucking right, bitter world Cried a hundred tears when I see my baby girls When I see my baby girls, damn Sweat and tears, this my testimony Just know the world is yours, ain't that right, tony? Gas prices high, niggers die young Bad role models, that's what that came from That's what that came from This bitter world, my god Well, well, my god, well, This bitter earth, well Dear world, dear world, I need you undivided And know some choices that we made were highly undecided We keep it mind, we giving them signs, the time just disregard it This bitter world, well Ah, some live in the blind afraid of the light, But pain just can't be departed The things that I seen I wish it was dreams'sleeping hardly Lost a lot of homies endured a lot of pain Pray for better nights, slowly they became I hear my phone ring, fuck who calling me I just hope that it's success who trying to bother peace Fuck this bitter world, with no apologies Babies having babies, what could your father be Sick of being tired, and tired of being broke Mama worked too hard I pray of stroke Microphone and words, clearly show me hope Without it I'm alone, clearly you should know.

You And Me Are Gone

JAMIE CULLUM "The Pursuit"
Every time I see what's written on your mind I turn away and drop my guard Your high horse will be the leader of the blind Tender love and truth aside I'm in possession of so many tones I loved it all my life Feel the rhythm in your very bones I never sleep at night. You and me are gone You and me are gone Winter's bitter song You and me are gone, gone away. Truthfully I've got the most upper hand I never seem to finish lovin' You train your eye and force yourself to make a stand When it dies a warmer stuffing Lose yourself and on the edge of reason Teenage ears so drown Even I don't know what I am feeling Lost you til I'm found. You and me are gone You and me are gone Winter's bitter song You and me are gone, gone away. Yeah... See the joyous pro's have left my tongue For other warmer things, Battle songs are written to be sung A million toxic lies. You and me are gone You and me are gone You and me are gone You and me are gone You and me are gone You and me are gone

I'm With It

AER "Aer"
[Verse 1 - Carter:] Catch me holdin on the OE, conversate with Zoe Only gonna remember her T-shirt with David Bowie Its so clear the hipsters here, and the queens are there, and the rest are near It’s the FAM crew and were back at it again This time in a house of a friend of a friends Only 11 PM, now with your eyes and your ears listen up to how the story begins The beat brought the energy, I brought the soul Hope I don’t get drowned in liquor and end up runnin home Got my homies to keep me composed, now that’s real And that girl Zoe over there knows the deal [Chorus - Dave:] I don’t wanna cuff to confine me Every move you make choose your way (I’m with it) Gettin’ loose with crew right beside me Let me approach what I scoped out (I’m with it) Any minute now we can exit the spot And take what we got home and get acquainted Lift your brow got me spillin’ out vows From your style to your smile – love you got me chasin’ [Verse 2 - Carter:] Lets go! Cmon! time to break up the best smoke “Carter can I hit it? don’t make me kiss ya and beg for it,” This house so big it needs exploring So come along girl were diving in head first I said yeah baby yeah make that granite counter top yours One more minute and we’ll bring it to the bottom floor Applaud for the encore, and I ain’t even on tour The thunderstorm is coming, I wonder who will conquer? That’s simple it’s me, got the freshest expressions and essence up on my tee They all askin’, how’d I end up like Jay Gatsby? The set up of the place was pretty hot With a smoking section, dance floor, and a porch to cool off Barely know her but I know that she’s rarer than moon rocks With Cartie in this bitch the party don’t stop ha [Chorus - Dave]
