Lou Reed And John Cale lyrics - Songs For Drella

Work

Original and similar lyrics
Andy was a Catholic the ethic ran through his bones He lived alone with his mother collecting gossip and toys Every Sunday when he went to Church He'd kneel in his pew and say 'It's work, all that matters is work.' He was a lot of things what I remember most he'd say 'I've got to bring home the bacon someone's got to bring home the roast.' He'd get to the factory early If you'd ask him he'd tell you straight out It's work No matter what I did it never seemed enough he said I was lazy, I said I was young He said, 'How many songs did you write ?' I'd written zero, I'd lied and said, 'Ten.' 'You won't be young forever You should have written fifteen' It's work 'You ought to make things big people like it that way And the songs with the dirty words make sure your record them that way' Andy liked to stir up trouble he was funny that way He said, 'It's just work Andy sat down to talk one day he said decide what you want Do you want to expand your parameters or play museums like some dilettante I fired him on the spot he got red and called me a rat It was the worst word that he could think of And I've never seen him like that It's work, I thought he said it's just work Andy said a lot of things I stored them all away in my head Sometimes when I can't decide what I should do I think what would Andy have said He'd probably say you think too much That's 'cause there's work that you don't want to do It's work, the most important thing is work It's work, the most important thing is work

Work It Out

JURASSIC 5 "Feedback"
1-2-1-2 [Dave Matthews] A don't stop stop your dreamin' Let yourself float upon the notion We can work it out, we gon' work it out baby Go ahead lose yourself inside this opportunity That we gonna make it right now, make it right now [Marc 7even] Hey We live and we learn, we crash and we burn Right now my only rhyme is this lesson I learned You talk about trust, I talk about lust It's not appealin' as you truly speak your feelings I'll be lookin' at the ceiling, so concealing I shoulda put my heart on the table Knowin' I was good and able but instead I fed your fables If I could have you back best believe it'd be forever Cause each and every day you would hear those four letters [Chorus] [Chali 2na] Hey These are different times but we feel the same pains The blood of mankind runnin' through the same veins We'd like to make it right some which it remain tame Same crimes even though the names changed And we like different minds workin' off the same brain Passengers on different cars steppin' off the same train In the end, makin' it right's the main aim Different parts of the picture highlight the same frame [Chorus] [Akil] Yo Now if you know what I know you need to work it out If you ain't happy with yourself you need to work it out You havin' problems with your family then work it out The things we go through just to work it out I work it out when the situation seems unworkable unreversible but God is most merciful Many works, Many men converse With soul searches sweat it out when they tryin' to work it out [Soup] With the constant complaint, we either gonna make it fly Or we ain't, I already know what some of ya think I'ma talk a hip hop and how bad its got Then tryin' pull a brother, I'm not lookin' for nobody to judge, you said you ain't I never thought you was I'm just tryin' get with ya and pose in the same picture So this mic thing can move the right thing and do the right thing Made for your life gain, plus my man might sing [Chorus - 2X]

Feels Like Work

DARRYL WORLEY "Hard Rain Don't Last"
Feels Like Work All day long I break my back To keep this company in the black There's gotta be an end to all this labor When I hear that whistle blow I can't wait to see your smiling face and Lose myself in your embrace But lately every day when I walk in Oh it feels like work again So maybe we should find ourselves a mountain top A little place to stop for awhile Get above the things that made us feel this way Hey, a day or two and we'll come back in style Just a little time together Oh, it's bound to make things better Till the weight of this old world starts closing in And it feels like work again Now life, it ain't no fairy tale And I guess we know all too well How sometimes it can get a little crazy Yeah, that's the way it is So we just keep on going But there's peace of mind in knowing We can run off somewhere every now and then When it feels like work again So baby we should find ourselves a mountain top A little place to stop for awhile Get above the things that made us feel this way Hey, a day or two and we'll come back in style Just a little time together Oh, it's bound to make things better Till the weight of this old world starts closing in And it feels like work again Yeah, we just keep on going 'Cause there's peace of mind in knowing We can run off somewhere every now and then When it feels like work again Yeah when it feels like work again

I.o.u.

Jimmy Dean "I.O.U."
Many people look through their wallet or their pocket books and, way down at the bottom, past the credit cards and baby pictures and so on, you usually find a little 'ol piece of dog-eared poetry. I was cleaning out my wallet the other day and ran across a whole bunch of I.O.U's, some of 'em thirty-five years overdue. And you know the funny thing, all these I.O.U's are owed to one person and I kinda felt like that maybe now would be a pretty good time for an accountin'. Mom, I sure hope you're listenin'. Sweet lady, I.O.U. for so many things..... A lot of services, like nightwatchman for instance..... Lyin' awake nights, listenin' for coughs and cries and creakin' floorboards.....hah-hah, and me comin' in too late. Boy, you had the eye of an eagle and the roar of a lion, But you always had a heart as big as a house. I.O.U. for services like, uh, short order cook, chef, baker..... For makin' sirloin out o' hamburger an' turkey out o' tuna fish, And big ol' strappin' boys out of leftovers. I.O.U. for cleanin' services, The daily scrubbing of face and ears....all work done by hand. And for the frequent dustin' of a small boy's pants To try to make sure that you led a spotless life. And for washin' and ironin' that no laundry could ever do. For dryin' the tears of childhood and ironin' out the problems of growin' up. I.O.U. for services as a bodyguard, For protectin' me from the terrors of thunderstorms and nightmares Hah, And too many green apples. And Lord knows, I.O.U. for medical attention, For nursing me through measles, mumps, bruises, Bumps, splinters and spring fever. Oh-oh, let's not forget medical advice....important things like, 'If you keep on scratching that, it'll never get well' or 'If you cross your eyes, they're gonna stick like that'. And probably the most important advice of all, 'Boy, you be sure you got on clean underwear, in case you're in an accident'. And I.O.U. for veterinarian services, For feeding every lost dog that I dragged home at the end of the rope, And for healing the pains of puppy love. And I.O.U. for entertainment..... Entertainment that kept the household goin' through some pretty rough times..... And for wonderful productions at Christmas, the Fourth of July, Birthdays..... And for making make-believe come true..... And you did it all on such a limited budget. I.O.U. for construction work, for building kites and confidence, hopes and dreams an'..... Somehow you made them all touch the sky..... And for cementin' together a family So it would stand the worst kind of shocks and blows..... And for layin' down a good strong foundation to build a life on. I.O.U. for carrier charges..... For carryin' me on your books for the necessities of life That a growin' boy somehow, well, they just gotta have. Things like, hah-hah, a pair of high top boots, With a little pocket on the side for a jack-knife. And one thing, Mom, I'll never forget.... When there were two pieces of pie and three hungry people..... You were always the one who decided, well, I'm not really that hungry anyhow. These are just a few of the things for which payment is long overdue.. The person that I owe 'em to worked very, very cheap.... She managed by simply doin' without a whole lot o' things that she needed herself.... My I.O.U's add up to more than I could ever hope to repay, But you know the nicest thing about it all.... That I know, that she had marked the entire bill 'Paid In Full' For just one kiss and four little words....Mom, I Love You!

Backstage Pass

Dan Mccaferty "Into The Ring"
They handed it to him He handed it to her Explaining it was solely for her own protection You know it can't be bought for money Its given freely by the game It's the rock 'n' roll equivalent of social standing Look at me I'm with them on the stage I can see my friends they're eight rows back But although they had to pay I think it's fair to say I had to make my way on the crew bus I'd do anything Things to make you sing Tell me your favourite thing Bring all that I can bring To get a backstage pass Got to wear it out on the show Let everybody know You know your way around And you know the action When you show it like a sign You're gonna look so fine But nothing's really free It must be paid for I'd do anything Things to make you sing Tell me your favourite thing Bring all that I can bring To get a backstage pass No 'after show' that won't do Don't want no press pass No no no guest pass I'm with you Fantastic plastic Access all areas And when the band move on You can stick it on the wall It really will do things for your reputation You can be the one in town who has been seen around You might even get a name across the nation I'd do anything Things to make you sing Tell me your favourite thing Bring all that I can bring To get a backstage pass No 'after show' that won't do Don't wont no press pass No no no guest pass I'm with you Fantastic plastic Access all areas
