MADONNA lyrics - Bedtime Stories

American Pie

Original and similar lyrics
A long, long time ago I can still remember How that music used to make me smile And I knew that if I had my chance I could make those people dance And maybe they'd be happy for a while Did you write the book of love And do you have faith in God above If the Bible tells you so Now do you believe in rock 'n roll And can music save your mortal soul And can you teach me how to dance real slow Well I know that you're in love with him 'Cause I saw you dancin' in the gym You both kicked off your shoes [both kicked off your shoes] Man, I dig those rhythm 'n blues I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck With a pink carnation and a pickup truck But I knew that I was out of luck The day the music died I started singin' Chorus: Bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry And good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye Singin', This will be the day that I die, This will be the day that I die. I met a girl who sang the blues And I asked her for some happy news But she just smiled and turned away Well I went down to the sacred store Where I'd heard the music years before But the man there said the music wouldn't play Well now in the streets the children screamed [the children screamed] The lovers cried and the poets dreamed [the poets dreamed] But not a word was spoken [not a word was spoken] The church bells all were broken And the three men I admire the most The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost They caught the last train for the coast The day the music died We start singin' (chorus) (chorus) We started singin' (repeat 3 times)

The Little Things In Life

C.W. McCall "C.W. McCall Co."
(Bill Fries, Chip Davis) How long has it been Since you got up on the early side a' mornin'? And saw the sun a-risin' Bright an' shiny on the eastern side a' day? And long will it be 'Til you listen to the sound of evenin' thunder? And go runnin' through the raindrops And stop to smell the flowers on the way How long has it been Since you heard the leaves a-rustlin' in November? And felt the autumn wind Blowin' soft across a sky of sil'vry gray? And how long will it be 'Til you walk along the riverside together? And take the time to skip a stone And stop to watch the ripples fade away But we're so busy tryin' to make it Workin' mornin', noon and night That we never see the sunlight And anytime we started lookin' For the little things in life that make it livin' How long has it been Since you held your woman in your arms and kissed her? And told her that you'd love her 'Til the day that heaven takes you both away? And how long will it be 'Til you wake up late at night and turn to whisper, Hon, I promise you tomorrow ain't a-gonna be just another day. But we're so busy tryin' to make it Workin' mornin', noon and night That we never feel the lovelight And anytime we started hearin' All them quiet words that come from up above We're so busy tryin' to fight it Drivin' hard to beat the stoplight That we never see the starlight And anytime we started lookin' For the little things in life that make it love Yeah, the little things in life that make it livin' Are the little things in life that make it love

The Great Compromise

JOHN PRINE "Diamonds In The Rough"
I knew a girl who was almost a lady She had a way with all the men in her life Every inch of her blossomed in beauty And she was born on the fourth of July Well she lived in an aluminum house trailer And she worked in a juke box saloon And she spent all the money I give her Just to see the old man in the moon Chorus: I used to sleep at the foot of Old Glory And awake in the dawn's early light But much to my surprise When I opened my eyes I was a victim of the great compromise Well we'd go out on Saturday evenings To the drive-in on Route 41 And it was there that I first suspected That she was doin' what she'd already done She said Johnny won't you get me some popcorn And she knew I had to walk pretty far And as soon as I passed through the moonlight She hopped into a foreign sports car (Repeat chorus) Well you know I could have beat up that fellow But it was her that had hopped into his car Many times I'd fought to protect her But this time she was goin' too far Now some folks they call me a coward 'Cause I left her at the drive-in that night But I'd druther have names thrown at me Than to fight for a thing that ain't right (Repeat chorus) Now she writes all the fellows love letters Saying Greetings, come and see me real soon And they go and line up in the barroom And spend the night in that sick woman's room But sometimes I get awful lonesome And I wish she was my girl instead But she won't let me live with her And she makes me live in my head (Repeat chorus)

Long Way Down

SWOLLEN MEMBERS "Monsters In The Closet"
[Chorus:] And it's a long way down It's a long way down It's such a long way down to the place where we started from Yo, i'm still trying to figure out this Venus and mars thing But everytime I see you all I hear is a harp string We chilled last night I had to record this Listen to portishead Makin love in the forest Where not stuck in this orbit Its gonna work out for us So gorgeous like the voice of the woman gracing the chorus A newborn in its pure form Gentle and precious We connect on more than just mental Don't let this shit stress us I'm okay if you're okay I know it sounds cliché But we built this whole relationship from sand and clay Now we're so strong We've got a concrete bond And it completes so solid I had to write this song And it's a long way down It's a long way down It's such a long way down to the place where we started We met when we was young Two hearts that beat as one I knew it from the start Not till death do us part Nothing compares to you (keep blazin) I'm a fine young cannibal And you drive me crazy I know your looks attracts guys But that don't faze me Soul mate, make me feel like they got nothing on me Just to, taste your lips Plus your voice is calming I know its hard babe cause i'm always on tour But my love is fucking pure And that's for sure Been around the world Feel like I've covered whole earth's surface Stressed out to the point of askin if it's worth it Sometimes it trips me out kid Cause you're so perfect I gotta keep working, striving and building So we can get a house, have kids and grand children Till then I'll make sure you don't regret That you gave me another chance girl I won't forget! It's a long way down It's a long way down It's a long way down It's a long way down [WITH MAD CHILD IN BACKROUND] Listen to me man, make sure you love what you do Cause it's gonna take a time for anyone to get to the ultimate goal And As long as you love what your doing Doesn't matter how long it takes And when it finally does happen Try to remember how hard you worked to get there And appreciate that's shit Keep climbing BATTLEAXE I'm shark where you swim Sharp as a dart in your skin We've been given a title that's not hard to defend Not just my partners my friends See this from start till the end With words that alter the wind Cause we assault with a pen And hit with the song No problems here we getting along Take turns from learnin from our mistakes Admit when we wrong And everybody knows how to fight To shows that are tight Appropriate strikes Nobody's sober tonight Take a walk on the wild side Give me beats and I'll never die Ill hold your mind like a hypnotist Swing the watch into overdrive There's no rabbit or wand My habits are rippin a song The magic comes from the act of people waving their arms I'm as sane as I was Given and receiving the love Livin and breathing this stuff [With Rob the Viking on drums] Battleaxe warriors – mad child prevail This is music for ya'll bars notes and scales And it's a long way down It's a long way down It's such a long way down to the place where we started

You Were Meant For Me

JEWEL "Pieces Of You"
I hear the clock, it's six a.m. I feel so far from where I've been Got my eggs and my pancakes too Got my maple syrup, everything but you. Break the yolks, make a smiley face I kinda like it in my brand new place I wipe the spots off the mirror Don't leave the keys in the door Never put wet towels on the floor anymore' cause Dreams last so long even after you're gone I know you love me And soon you will see You were meant for me And I was meant for you. Called my momma, she was out for a walk Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk Picked up a paper, it was more bad news More hearts being broken or people being used Put on my coat in the pouring rain Saw a movie it just wasn't the same 'Cause it was happy and I was sad It made me miss you oh so bad Dreams last so long Even after you're gone I know you love me And soon you will see You were meant for me And I was meant for you. Go about my business, I'm doin fine Besides, what would I say if U had you on the line Same old story, not much to say Hearts are broken, everyday. Brush my teeth and put the cap back on I know you hate it when I leave the light on I pick a book up. Turn the sheets down. Take a deep breath and a good look around Put on my pj's and hop into bed I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead I try and tell myself it'll be all right I just shouldn't think anymore tonight Dreams last so long Even after you're gone I know you love me And soon you will see You were meant for me And I was meant for you
