Chemically Free

Original and similar lyrics
I'm so glad to see you the things that you do are so chemically free it's a wonder to me that you're still smiling I hear you're on top of the heap you own nothing that's cheap and how is London town lately Now you're on top of the world Looking down on the nation You're the boy with the girls Who's above all creation The man with the plan Whose going to do all he can for himself Did you buy all we sell all you took from us well we'll say loves not for sale and have I hit the nail you've been holding all the friends that you've made for the prices you paid come to lie at your feet and worship what you made

So Alone

LOU REED "Growing Up In Public"
She calls on the phone she says she doesn't want to be alone She says it's making her neurotic but please don't mistake it for being erotic So alone, so all alone She says let's go for a walk we'll have a drink and maybe we will talk And he thinks she has possibilities if she could just put away her rosary So alone, nobody wants to be alone But I just didn't know I swear to you, I just didn't know I would never make you sad if I had known I never would have said those things to you you have to be crazy to say those things to you Let's face it I made a mistake well you know, fools rush in where angels take a break I can't be smart all of the time and anyway I didn't know you were making time over him To tell you the truth, I forget all about him And you know, I don't think it's nice asking one man about another man's vice I don't care if you pick my head as long as we end up in bed Alone, just the two of us alone I just didn't know I swear to God, I just didn't know Can't you understand that it's frightening when you hear women talking about castrating and hating men who wants to know about how you hate men Well, you said now you wanted to dance so now we're going to dance You said that you weren't complete but we're going to put you on your feet You said that you were very vexed you told me to forget about sex You said you liked me for my mind well, I really love your behind Oh, get up and boogie, oh baby, get up and dance Oh, get, get, get, get up and boogie, baby, oh, get up and dance Shake your booty, mama, oh, get up and dance Your points very clear you're not one to cry into your beer Why don't we go to my place believe me, I'm very chaste And I'm so alone, ao all alone Sure all men are beasts hey, look, I'll sit here quietly and I'll stare at my feet I don't blame you for taking umbrage with animals staring at your cleavage So alone, we're so all alone Hey, do you mind if I turn out the light don't take offense, but why don't you spend the night I know your passions run very deep but at this point we both need sleep So alone, and who wants to be alone

Copied Keys

KATHLEEN EDWARDS "Back To Me"
This is not my town and it will never be This is our apartment filled with your things This is your life, I get copied keys Try and force a little smile hold it a little while for you These are your old streets and you know them well One way shortcuts all the way downtown But your favorite find is just my secondhand secret Try and hide a little pain for the things I can't explain to you These are your good friends and I like them fine Cuz they are your past and your present time But would you even be the same if you left them behind All the things I used to be All the things I miss of me for you These are your good friends and I like them fine These are your old streets and you know them well This is not my town and it will never be And it will never be..... ours.

The Next Time I'm In Town

JOHNNY CASH
Well it's been something seeing you again And in this time we've had to spend You've been so good to be around I thank you for that special thrill Keeps me going on until the next time I'm in town Though I won't be back here for a while I'll hear your laughter see your smile I'll remember what went down Though I don't know how or when I'll be seeing you again the next time I'm in town Until the next time that I'll be passing through Think of all the things we've go to look forward to Checking up on old friends staying up all night long Playing jukebox music singing old country songs Now the faces and the places range across the bridge of time And change and once again I'm homeward bound But there's one thing I promise you And that's another rendezvous the next time I'm in town

Good Friends And Neighbors

JERRY REED "Georgia Sunshine"
Well it was midnight cold and rainy In the sleepy town of Fairburn population small An angry man stood out on Main Street Shiverin' in his coat sleeves by the City Hall wall Thumbin’ every car that’s passed him in for an hour But they wouldn't look at him at all So he yelled damn you friends and neighbors you won't give me a ride My feet are sore from walking and I'm froze to my inside Lord a man could catch his death of cold or a severe case of flu Thanks to friends and neighbors like you Well he come storming into my restaurant Dripping water soakin’ wet in a freezing cold I poured him a hot black cup of coffee took his coat off cussing mad And here's a tale that he told Said I picked up a young hitchhiker Took my billfold and my car and let me off down the road Well I must have walked for hours to get here Went to see your friendly sheriff in my desperation He just sit there and picked his teeth Laughed a little when I told him of my situation And when I finished he leaned back and belched Said let me see some identification Cause he said damn you friends and neighbors seems like every Saturday night I get an earful of this same old bull cause some drunk gets off half tight Every weekend's the same old story don't get home till one or two Thanks to friends and neighbors like you Well I called your sheriff a dirty name Then was thrown out through his front door by a big deputy I hit that sidewalk cussin' shook my fist back in his face Said you can't do this to me Cause I'm a circuit judge for Monroe sheriff And you gonna pay for all this indignity Well I've seen some angry people But I never seen a man as mad as that fellow was He said I never did like Fairburn I hate the rain I hate hitchhikers And I'm sick of your local fuss And if I ever saw a town that needs another sheriff This is one town that does And he yelled damn these friends and neighbors as he grabbed his coat to leave Well this night I spent in Fairburn just too funny to believe Lord I could write a book of jokes about what I've been through In this town of friends and neighbors like you

The Best Of All Possible Worlds

KRIS KRISTOFFERSON "Me Bobby McGee"
I was runnin' thru the summer rain, try'n' to catch that evenin' train And kill the old familiar pain weavin' thru my tangled brain When I tipped my bottle back and smacked into a cop I didn't see That police man said, Mister Cool, if you ain't drunk, then you're a fool. I said, If that's against the law, then tell me why I never saw A man locked in that jail of yours who wasn't neither black or poor as me? Well, that was when someone turned out the lights And I wound up in jail to spend the night And dream of all the wine and lonely girls In this best of all possible worlds. Well, I woke up next mornin' feelin' like my head was gone And like my thick old tongue was lickin' something sick and wrong And I told that man I'd sell my soul for something wet and cold as that old cell. That kindly jailer grinned at me, all eaten up with sympathy Then poured himself another beer and came and whispered in my ear, If booze was just a dime a bottle boy, you couldn't even buy the smell I said, I knew there was something I liked about this town. But it takes more than that to bring me down, down, down. 'Cause there's still a lot of wine and lonely girls In this best of all possible worlds Well, they finally came and told me they was a gonna set me free And I'd be leavin' town if I knew what was good for me I said, It's nice to learn that ev'rybody's so concerned about my health. (They were obsessed with it) I said, I won't be leavin' no more quicker than I can 'Cause I've enjoyed about as much of this as I can stand And I don't need this town of yours more than I never needed nothin' else. 'Cause there's still alot of drinks that I ain't drunk And lots of pretty thoughts that I ain't thunk And lord there's still so many lonely girls In this best of all possible worlds.
