Pirates (So Long Lonely Avenue)

Original and similar lyrics
Come on - Joey get out of school We got places to go A '57 Lincoln you got a radio that hurts And the girls like to touch it Just to find out if it works But don't look at me It wasn't me Joey live on the edge of the corner Of living on the run I like to ride in the middle I'm just tryin to have some fun Until the Pirates come And take me And I won't need a pilot Got a pirate who might sail Somewhere I heard far away You answer me So i'm holding on To your rainbow sleeves Well, goodbye boys, Oh my buddy boys, Oh my sad-eyed Sinatras It'as a cold globe around the sea You keep the shirt that I bought ya And I know you'll get the chance to make it And nothin's gonna stop you You just reach right out and take it You say - So long, lonely Avenue So long lonely avenue I'll see you there Wait 'n see Be lookin' for me Just like you Just like me

Singin' In Vietnam Talkin' Blues

JOHNNY CASH "Man In Black"
One mornin' at breakfast, I said to my wife We been everywhere once and some places twice As I had another helping of country ham She said "We ain't never been to Vietnam "And there's a bunch of our boys over there." So we went to the Orient: Saigon Well we got a big welcome when we drove in Through the gates of a place that they call Long Vinh We checked in and everything got kinda quiet But a soldier boy said: "Just wait 'til tonight "Things get noisy. Things start happenin' "Big bad firecrackers." Well that night we did about four shows for the boys And they were livin' it up with a whole lot of noise We did our last song for the night And we crawled into bed for some peace and quiet But things weren't peaceful. And things weren't quiet Things were scary Well for a few minutes June never said one word And I thought at first that she hadn't heard Then a shell exploded not two miles away She sat up in bed and I heard her say: "What was that?" I said: "That was a shell, or a bomb." She said: "I'm scared." I said "Me too." Well all night long that noise kept on And the sound would chill you right to the bone The bullets and the bombs, and the mortar shells Shook our bed every time one fell And it never let up; it was gonna get worse Before it got any better Well when the sun came up, the noise died down We got a few minutes sleep, an' we were sleepin' sound When a soldier knocked on our door and said: "Last night they brought in seven dead, and 14 wounded." And would we come down to the base hospital, and see the boys "Yes!" So we went to the hospital ward by day And every night we were singin' away Then the shells and the bombs was goin' again And the helicopters brought in the wounded men Night after night; day after day Comin' and a goin' So we sadly sang for them our last song And reluctantly we said: "So long." We did our best to let 'em know that we care For every last one of 'em that's over there Whether we belong over there or not Somebody over here love's 'em, and needs 'em Well now that's about all that there is to tell About that little trip into livin' hell And if I ever go back over there any more I hope there's none of our boys there for me to sing for I hope that war is over with And they all come back home To stay In peace

Texas Women (Don't Stay Lonely Long)

BROOKS & DUNN "Hard Workin' Man"
Well I'll bet by the time I get to Tulsa She'll be pullin' on them tight blue jeans She'll go down to Cowboy's, buy herself a cold one And on a Friday night in Dallas, she's a cowboy's dream Something tells me she'll sit out the first one Then they'll play George Strait and she'll be gone Cause heaven knows that girl was born to two-step And Texas women don't stay lonely long It's a fact that women like the one I left Can find somebody else, any time they want It's a shame, but I'm afraid the one I love She don't like waiting much Texas women don't stay lonely long I'd sure like to think she'd wait forever Welcome me back in with open arms But she don't walk the floor, she don't count the teardrops And she don't pick up pieces from no broken heart I wish I could call and say I'm sorry But there's nobody sitting by the phone You know she meant it when she told me that she loved me But Texas women don't stay lonely long It's a fact that women like the one I left Can find somebody else, any time they want It's a shame, but I'm afraid the one I love She don't like waiting much Texas women don't stay lonely long It's a fact that women like the one I left Can find somebody else, any time they want It's a shame, but I'm afraid the one I love She don't like waiting much Texas women don't stay lonely long

Lonely

Hi Standard
When I woke up lonely in my bed, it was a rainy day and my lonely days started again. My dear love, I saw you last night in my dream. You told me, while shedding tear drops. I don't know why I am here, I'm leaving you. Is this mishief of God? I wanna see your smile, so long... Such lonely days My mom always said to me Take good care of your love and protect her. Even if we seperated, I'll never let go of your hand. Don't cry no more and hope that our dream will come true. I leave this song for you with all my heart, so long.... Such lonely days To carry out our dream I lock sweet memories in my mind. And when the day comes, go to church with you. Forever we'll be this way

Distracted

AL JARREAU "This Time"
I wonder how do you do And should I come back to you I've been thinking I wonder how do you do And should I come back to you I was lonely, sad and so distracted I took a highway It was the low way in disguise There because only My love had chain reacted There was a detour 'long the way - With a soft shoulder toll to pay - Leaving me a-lonely Sad and so distracted I was lonely, so sad and so distracted Taking the freeway but when I broke free I closed my eyes Mama, please hold me real close 'cause I've been fractured There was a detour along the way With a soft shoulder toll to pay Leavin' me a-lonely, Sad and so distracted Notice the teardrops running down on my cheek Notice the laughter Making it loud's a good disguise Taking my heartaches for a little ride on main street There was a detour 'long the way Just another heart that stalled today Leaving me a-lonely, sad and so distracted (Play your horn, play on your horn) There was a detour 'long the way Just another heart that stalled today Leaving me a-lonely, sad and so distracted [Repeat]

Pirate

Emerson Lake And Palmer "Works, Vol. 1"
(Emerson/Lake/Sinfield) ”Who'll make his mark”, the captain cried. ”To the devil drink a toast. We'll glut the hold with cups of gold And we'll feed the sea with ghosts I see your hunger for a fortune Could be better served beneath my flag If you've the stomach for a broadside Come aboard my pretty boys I will take you and make you Everything you've ever dreamed.” ”Make fast the guns tonight we sail when the high tide floods the bay, cut free the lines and square the yards get the black flag stowed away the Turk, the Arab, the Spaniard will soon have pennies on their eyes and any other laden fancy we will take her by surprise I will take you and make you Everything you've ever dreamed.” Six days off the Cuban coast when a sail ahead the spied ”A galleon of the treasure fleet,' the mizzen lookout cried ”Closer to the wind my boys,” the mad-eyed captain roared ”For every man that's alive tonight will be hauling gold aboard.” ”Spare us,” the galleon begged but mercy's face had fled Blood ran from the screaming souls the cutlass harvested Driven to the quarter deck the last survivor fell ”She's ours my boys,” the Captain grinned ”and no one left to tell.” The Captain rose from a silk divan With a pistol in his fist And shot the lock from an iron box And a blood red ruby kissed ”I give you jewellery of turquoise A crucifix of solid gold One hundred thousand silver pieces It is just as I foretold You... You see there before you everything You've ever dreamed.” Anchored in an indigo moonlit bay Gold-eyed ‘round fires the sea thieves lay Morning... white shells and a pipe of clay As the wind filled their footsteps They were far... far... away. ”Our sails swell full as we brave all seas On a westward wind to live as we please With the wicked wild-eyed woman of Portobello town Where we've been told that a purse of gold Buys many man a crown They will serve you and clothe you Exchange your rags for the velvet coats of Kings.” ”Who'll drink a toast with me I give you Liberty This town is ours... tonight.” ”Landlord, wine make it the finest Make it a cup for a sea dogs thirst Two long years of bones and beaches Fever and leeches did their worst So fill the night with paradise Bring me peach and peacock till I burst But first, I want a soft touch in the right place I want to feel like a King tonight Ten on the black to beat the Frenchman Back you dogs give 'em room to turn Now open wide sweet Heaven's gates Tonight we're gonna see if Heaven burns See how she burns... Oh she burns I want an angel on a gold chain And I'll ride her to the stars It's the last time for a long long time Come the daybreak, we embark...” On the flood of the morning tide Once more the ocean cried. ”This company will return one day Though we feel your tears it's the price we pay For there's prizes to be taken and glory to be found Cut free the chains make fast your souls We are Eldorado bound... I will take you always forever together Until hell call our names...” ”Who'll drink a toast with me To the devil and the deep blue sea Gold drives a man... to dream!”
