Polyester Bride

Original and similar lyrics
I was talking, not two days ago To a certain bartender I'm lucky to know And I asked Henry, my bartending friend If I should bother dating unfamous men And Henry said, You're lucky to even know me, You're lucky to be alive. You're lucky to be drinking here for free, 'cause I'm a sucker for your lucky, pretty eyes. And then he said, Do you wanna be a polyester bride? Or do you want to hang your head and die? Do you want to find alligator cowboy boots they just put on sale? Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here? And I was sitting, not two days ago Feeling lonely, 'cause I'm just feeling low And I asked Henry, my bartending friend Why it is that there are those kind of men And Henry said, You're lucky to even know me, You're lucky to be alive. You're lucky to be drinking here for free, 'cause I'm a sucker for your lucky, pretty eyes. And then he said, Do you wanna be a polyester bride? Or do you want to hang your head and die? Do you want to find alligator cowboy boots they just put on sale? Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here? Princess, do you really want to flap your wings and fly? Because you've got time. He keeps telling me, You've got time. But I don't believe him You've got time. I keep on pushing harder I keep on pushing farther away But he keeps telling me, Baby , He says, Baby, yeah Do you want to be a polyester bride? Or do you want to hang your head and die? Do you want to find alligator cowboy boots they just put on sale? Do you want to flap your wings and fly away from here? Do you want to be a polyester bride? Away from here Do you want to be a polyester bride? Away from here Do you want to be a polyester bride? Princess, do you really want to flap your wings and fly away from here?

Here Comes The Groom

John Wesley Harding "Here Comes The Groom"
With half an eye on history And half an ounce of hope Sold his soul in the vestry Money for old rope Been this way a million times But now his time is nigh He steps into the spotlight He wants to say 'hi Hello, we're so glad you came You've never seen me before' He's so ambitious, he's so game But yesterday he was dressed the same Then he was so much easier to ignore Here Comes The Groom But the world's not an inn and there isn't any room for you But here he comes He married into money Just to kiss and tell He ripped the contract open He's out of his shell He looks into a mirror Practising his poise But it reflects so badly The groom just gets annoyed He gasps, he forgets his lines He's never done that before The scientists say he's doing fine This fumbling frantic frankenstein Soon he's gonna do the dinosaur Here Comes The Groom His fingers are on the cliff edge His head is going under Is that applause? No that's just thunder.... Why do you keep saying I do? What does the bride mean to you? Play me some Puccini Make it heavy on the strings Walk me to the altar The choir can't even sing Right side for the photographs Left side for the kids God made me do it So that's what I did He coughs, loosens his bow-tie You've never seen him before He kisses the bride, oh you know why Love's one more thing you can buy He was unfaithful before he went outdoors (and now he's in the graveyard) Here Comes The Groom.....

Coward Of The Year

AESOP ROCK "Music For Earthworms"
[the Controls] Does it feel, you're the coward of the year? [Percee P] I'm so laborious, bright, Its a wreck in dire vocabulary, Adversaries will commence to ignite like magnesium oxide, canned argon peroxide, I'm hazardous, more poisonous than carbon monoxide, Earning stacks gold sterling plaques from burning tracks, Your learning that if your unconcerned with rap no turning back now, Man I'll bomb you please from up in the trees I'll freeze the season with a tighter squeeze than Aaron Cometbus [Aesop] Hey yo, One heart plated with purely golden tiles, Mixed with a little mischief behold style, Load a back alley shiner liquid Tomb raider with a most fertile assortment of spitting logic, 'Til lab rats gone colossus in the spotlight, Now Aesop Rock be the handle while your breath control is tough, to breath along is not enough, I correspond to a kick snare blind, but share the passion with but a small percentage of the masses and their fashion [the Controls] You got a feeling that you got me where you want me I've wait within the palm of your hand And you've got cartoons in the morning while I'm sleeping I've just got dreams that I don't understand [Percee P] Supply the checks, Known from Cali, Chi to Lex My respect and styles some try to get, but die direct from the side affects, You crave Perc cause I'm well equip with predicate your too delicate for this fella flip kid you better get saved first, called freaks give me no floor feet all sweet small peeks cause my stocks exchange they bore street still the slick kicking the illest hits who kill us quick when I build this? Spit more rounds than Bruce Willis flicks Ideas and flow raise eyelids that's why kids make hybrid rhymes supplied with step this God did years ago to grasp a taste have to place them in a glass case and observe 'em from a Nasa space center with a mask on face Coward of the year make others fear the way this brother is empowered I am the bomb, dont try tampering with my brand of style could by stand, the only witness [?] is God's (this guy's) camera taping me [Singing] I'm here, Does it feel, You're the coward of the year? I'm gone too far somebody pull me home, too gone, too far, too gone, too far [Aesop] Sadly I withered a non-believer, When pride covered this must lust, anger, gluttony, envy and sloth form the frame of your demeanor? I address but a rapidly lessoning portion of majors dissolved in the abortion of creations new laborers, Pilot burner riddle of trades, divinity, composers and tunnel through and out of spite the anti hero dosage, In a cradle I label the dreaded simulation we compile, Tenents embeded within synthetic inclination We have never dined on bait so when corrupt crooks hook simple Samaritans' eyes buried in books, shift on a badda datta sun moon merger to guard the difference, The New York MC population dancing uncontrollable expansion, I, cyclothymic pound dodger, push a wooden nickel towards town squatter bother me not, My wallow across the village drunk and mumbling in the streets, 'bout how an angel gets its wings with every blue note I release, An angel gets its wings with every blue note I release? Could this be lies? Cause I'm gonna spit cobalt 'til every angel flys, I blew the operation set to clinch victor, Walkie talkers turn awkward fixtures to complete the wicked mixture, the fire and ice combination adjourns fresh, I return with the last living specimen caressed, When the earth is vacated and the populous cleared, I'll be the last star fighter sipping a goblet of my tears

Lonely Afternoon

Bob Mould "Workbook"
Well, the silence in this house It echoes in this house I pull myself together, say Today I will get out The world, it changed without me You should hear what I've been told The streets I see are blasphemy Lined with paper cups and gold And in some dream, I think That every word I dare to speak Someone's always leaning over me Lean all over me A giant vision in the distance Chase that rainbow down I hear a pound, pound, pounding in my chest I hear a knock, a knocking sound It's the slivers flowing through my veins It's a sign that I'm alive You're lucky, oh my friend, so lucky You're lucky just to be alive As words go turning by I wish they'd all come clear In this room Another lonely afternoon I can count the lonely days I get by, as they go by Standing in the stairway by this room By this room (They've held me down for long enough; Like a flower, I need to grow) The frail and tender heart Been shipwrecked with a fool Feeling so abused, well, sometimes Life can be so cruel And the ones who make decisions for you Well, they better understand But you don't know what made me think of that Lonely afternoon
