THE DECEMBERISTS lyrics - Picaresque

16 By 32

Original and similar lyrics
Sixteen military wives, Thirty-two softly focused, brightly colored eyes, Staring at the natural tan, of thirty-two gently clenching, wrinkled, little hands. Seventeen company men, Out of which only twelve will make it back again. Seargeant sent a letter to five, Military wives, his tears drip down to ten little eyes. Cheer them on to their rivals Cause America can, and America can't say no And America does, if America says it's so It's so And the anchorperson on TV goes... La de da de da Fifteen celebrity mimes Leaving their fifteen sorted wretched checkered lives Will they find the solution in time Using their fifteen pristine moderate liberal minds? Eighteen academy chairs Out of which only seven really even care Doling out a garment to five Celebrity mimes, they're humbly taken by surprise Cheer them on to their rivals Cause America can, and America can't say no And America does, if America says it's so It's so And the anchorperson on TV goes... La de da de da de-dadedade-da La de da de da de-dadedade-da Fourteen cannibal kings Wondering blindly what the dinner bell will bring Fifteen celebrity mimes Served on a leafy bed th sixteen military wives Cheer them on to their rivals Cause America can, and America can't say no And America does, if America says it's so It's so And the anchorperson on TV goes... La de da de da de-dadedade-da La de da de da de-dadedade-da

America

Landau James Ef
CHENG South Korea, my heart's obsession, Call me at your own discretion. SARAH Always the pot growers dealing; Always the starving people stealing! And the gun-concealing; And the coca-raising; And the fires blazing; CHENG I know the grass there is greener! SARAH Smoke on your pipes . . . CHENG Emphysema! SARAH I like to go in America! Nice place to grow in America! Fine status quo in America! CHENG Fair share of woe in America! HAKEEM Beautiful, upscale neighborhood! TRINA People too rich for their own good! SARAH I get my own cul-de-sac house. CHENG Plus yuppie values to espouse! [Starting at this point, various students and faculty members call out each line.] Golden-arch M in America! Fat to condemn in America! Fries -- ya tried them in America? Food makes me phlegm in America! Lots of new products on the shelf! Lots of junk you're feeding yourself! All the hamburgers you can eat! CHENG Note that I'm Buddhist, so no meat! VARIOUS STUDENTS Pockets will burst in America! Corporate thirst in America! Get reimbursed in America! If you were first in America! Color-blind banks easy to find. If there's a check that I need signed! I get my own student's account! To save your very small amount! Having a blast in America! Life goes by fast in America! Romances last in America! Sexually harassed in America! Hits from alternative and pop! Deafening rap songs sound nonstop! I like the sound of One Headlight! The Macarena played all night! Ten-ton warships in America! Soldiers in crypts in America! Army conscripts in America! Apocalypse in America! Why don't you learn how to work hard? I'd rather go burn my draft card! The military is just swell! If they don't ask and you don't tell! Life can be cool in America! Outside high school in America! Democrat rule in America! Whom can you fool in America? Here you learn to do sums and spell. All they teach you is to rebel! HAKEEM Be taking Home Economics! TRINA Better throw out the Ebonics! CHENG Everywhere smut in America! Dress like a slut in America! For you-know-what in America! CHRISTOPHER Mostly clean-cut in America! VARIOUS STUDENTS/FACULTY Morality in great demand! Pornography at each newsstand! Tell by our dress that we're not stiffs! Take care of those exposed midriffs! Liberal views in America! SFLU's in America! Tel Avenue's in America! Family values in America! Voting's a privilege all get! Only if you've turned eighteen yet! Here you live by Natural Law. My radio gets Rush Limbaugh. Blue are the skies in America! Biosphere dies in America! Natural supplies in America! Ozone demise in America! Houses and factories built well. Some parts of town here, though, still smell. Five hundred natural parks here. Five hundred species dead each yea. Love can be great in America! If you can wait in America! Love is first-rate in America! If you're all straight in America! Romantic midnight dates for you. P'rhaps if you dodge city curfew! What if he asks and she says yes? Soon she's in maternity dress! CHENG Everything sucks in America! Congress wastes bucks in America! They all are schmucks in America! ANDREO Culture's in flux in America! CHENG I think I'll go back to old Seoul. CHRISTOPHER Who wants to live in that hellhole? NOBURU Everyone there will give glad shout! ALL Yay! SARAH Everyone there will have died out!

Don't Mess With America

Cledus T. Judd "Cledus Envy"
(U-S-A CHANT) They never should have messed with New York City Kha ha They don't want none of old Uncle Sam We stare right in the face of terror And you know Lady Liberty still stands With F-15s and our special forces God bless everyone we sent To defend freedom and our nation And thank goodness Bush is our President... CHORUS I Don't mess with America Or we'll beat you red, white, and blue... Don't mess with America That's the last thing that you want to do... You already had your chance Now we're going to kick your a(bleep)s... Don't mess with America... Bin Laden's going down like a White House intern (Cledus - spoken: Kind of sounded like Ronnie Dunn...didn't I?) And while we're at it let's get that nut Hussein... When the threat of evil is finally silenced You'll hear how loud freedom can ring... They started something we're gonna finish (George W. Bush: Those people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon…) And we won't rest until that day (GWB: We will not tire. We will not falter, and we will not fail.) Everywhere you look you see them flags flying (U-S-A CHANT) (GWB: God bless America) And what that stands for...ha ha...they can't take that away (GWB: My fellow Americans, let's roll...) CHORUS II Don't mess with America Or we'll beat you red, white, and blue... Don't mess with America Bin Laden I'd hate to be you... You don't stand a chance We're going to open up a can of Whoop-a(bleep)s Don't mess with America... I said DON'T (bleep) with America You're over there and preaching about a holy war... DON'T (bleep) with America Ha! You're gonna be full of holes before one of them Navy Seals finds ya… DON'T (bleep) with America And by the way get a beard trim. (U-S-A CHANT)

Shameless

PET SHOP BOYS "Alternative"

I know what you think It's clear as mud in your eyes We're the plastic poseurs and prostitutes you've obviously come to despise But you don't know nothing You're not hot enough to matter You don't understand the glamourous life a dream that no one can shatter We're shameless, we will do anything to get our fifteen minutes of fame We have no integrity, we're ready to crawl To obtain celebrity we'll do anything at all I'm ambitious Believe me, I'm going to be big I'm a slave to glamour applause and clamour my make-up, my wardrobe, my wigs Don't call me pathetic I'm harder than you'll ever guess relentlessly tough 'cause when the going gets rough the tough get their pictures in the press We're shameless, we will do anything to get our fifteen minutes of fame We have no integrity, we're ready to crawl To obtain celebrity we'll do anything at all Anything, anything, anything at all We'll do anything, anything, anything at all (How dare you!

Masturbation Song

Sam Massey "The Unnofficial Hits"
You don't need to use a condom You don't need a dental dam You don't need to say 'I Love You' or 'Here's Fifty Dollars, Ma'am.' Don't need to spring for dinner, Or wear all that sexy stuff All you need's a set of fingers and a wanker or a muff 'Cause everybody's doin' it, all across the land Masturbators Of America, Give Yourselves A Hand! It's natural, and organic It's easy and it's fun If you don't know how to do it ask your parents how it's done You don't need a special license You don't need a special skill Just unzip and slip your grip between your hips and get a thrill 'Cause everybody's doin' it, and boy does it feel grand, Masturbators of America, Give Yourselves a Hand! You can do it in the bathroom You can do it in your bed You can do it at a concert while you watch the Grateful Dead You can rub it with some lotion You can stroke it with a cloth Arnold Shwartzenegger pounds it, Michael Jackson jacks it off Your attitude will soften, your horizons will expand. Masturbators of America, Give Yourself a Hand.

Lost In The World

KANYE WEST "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy"
[Sample From "Woods": Justin Vernon] I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind I'm building a still to slow down the time I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind I'm building a still to slow down the time I'm up in the woods, I'm down on my mind I'm building a still to slow down the time [Chorus 2x:] I'm lost in the world, I'm down on my mind I'm new in the city, and I'm down for the night Down for the night Said she's down for the night [Kanye West:] You're my devil, you're my angel You're my heaven, you're my hell You're my now, you're my forever You're my freedom, you're my jail You're my lies, you're my truth You're my war, you're my truce You're my questions, you're my proof You're my stress and you're my masseuse Mama-say mama-say ma-ma-coo-sah Lost in this plastic life, Let's break out of this fake ass party Turn this into a classic night If we die in each other's arms we still get laid in the afterlife If we die in each other's arms we still get laid [Chorus:] (I'm lost in the world) Run from the lights, run from the night, (I'm down on my mind) Run for your life, I'm new in the city, and I'm down for the night Down for the night Down for the night I'm lost in the world, been down for my whole life, I'm new in the city but I'm down for the night Down for the night Down for the night Who will survive in America? Who will survive in America? Who will survive in America? [Chorus:] I'm lost in the world, I'm down on my mind I'm new in the city, and I'm down for the night Down for the night Said she's down for the night I'm lost in the world, I'm down on my mind I'm new in the city and I'm goin' for a ride Goin' for a ride I'm lost in the world, been down for my whole life I'm new in the city but I'm down the for the night Down for a night, down for a good time [Gil-Scott Heron:] Us living as we do upside down. And the new word to have is revolution. People don't even want to hear the preacher spill or spiel because God's whole card has been thoroughly piqued. And America is now blood and tears instead of milk and honey. The youngsters who were programmed to continue fucking up woke up one night digging Paul Revere and Nat Turner as the good guys. America stripped for bed and we had not all yet closed our eyes. The signs of truth were tattooed across our open ended vagina. We learned to our amazement the untold tale of scandal. Two long centuries buried in the musty vault, hosed down daily with a gagging perfume. America was a bastard, the illegitimate daughter of the mother country whose legs were then spread around the world and a rapist known as freedom, free doom. Democracy, liberty, and justice were revolutionary code names that preceded the bubbling bubbling bubbling bubbling bubbling in the mother country's crotch What does Webster say about soul? All I want is a good home and a wife And our children and some food to feed them every night. After all is said and done build a new route to China if they'll have you. Who will survive in America? Who will survive in America? Who will survive in America? Who will survive in America?
