RANDY NEWMAN lyrics - Lonely At The Top

Mama Told Me (Not To Come)

Original and similar lyrics
Will you have whiskey with your water? Sugar with your tea? What are these crazy questions They're asking of me? This here's the wildest party there ever could be Well don't turn on the lights cause I don't wanna see Mama told me not to come Mama told me not to come Mama said, That ain't no way to have fun Open up the window let some air into this room I think I'm almost choking on the smell of stale perfume That cigarette you're smoking about to scare me half to death Open up the window, let me catch my breath Mama told me not to come Mama told me not to come Mama said, That ain't no way to have fun Radio is blasting, someone beating on the door Our hostess is not lasting, she's out on the floor Seen so many things here I ain't never seen before Don't know why it is, but I don't wanna see no more Mama told me not to come Mama told me not to come Mama said, That ain't no way to have fun

Mind On The Matter

HARRY CONNICK, JR. "Star Turtle"
Mama told me not to try to be nobody I listened to her Mama told me I'd grow up to be somebody Looka here Savin money's hard when you can't save your soul I'll get through it Tryin to dig myself out of this mighty hole Listen to what I say Got my mind on the matter Sure as I tell ya Now you know that's right I look down at my hands and I see labor burns It's a part of livin Keepin my feet on the ground while the world turns It's all on me Got my mind on the matter Sure as I tell ya Now you know that's right

Don't Change

KAREN CLARK SHEARD "The Heavens Are Telling"
[phone rings] (hello?) (hey mama) (yeah) (can we kick it?) (can we kick it?) (I'm sorry, can I talk to you for a minute) (that's more like it) (well here's my story) [Verse 1] (becoming a lady) (yeah) There are so many things to learn (uh huh) About life and things that we're made of (now I see where this is all going) Don't wanna be mistaken For not being a christian girl (uh huh) And my fear is being made fun of (baby let me tell you how to cope) (tell me) 'cause ya mama went through the same thing (I bet you did) Be not justified by what your friends might think [Chorus] (mama I do my best To obey the rules that you and daddy set To keep me from doin' somethin' that I might regret Even though it's hard mama don't change) (being a mama ain't a easy task It's more than examples on how to cook and dress Discipline and values I know you need to get Even though your hard headed don't change) [Verse 2] (I know that I am special) (yes you are) Because I am a child (mama's baby) of the king But in the school they be thinking that I am arrogant (what now hold) I don't understand it (well) You told me to be proud of myself (yes I did) Why does it seem like I'm doing all the wrong things (let me tell you how to be When your attacked by the hands of the enemy Hold you head up high And in him you must believe) [Chorus] [Verse 3] (mama I know it looks like I'm not listenin' But I hear you and daddy too Thank you for showing me what to do) (we know you try we know it ain't easy to live this life sometime) (but as your by my side) (we can make it together) [J-Moss] I know what it means when you see them things on the T.V screens make a sista wanna (scream) You wanna make it quick everytime you see 23's or 24's thick on the floor But mama knows best Daddy told you whenever you come come correct Take your time baby and be a young lady You whole of your life a head of you don't change [Chorus x2] (can we talk anytime Can I tell ya what's on my mind Your my friend till the end Can I come Can I call Will say the right thing And explain what cha mean (I will) Can you show me (watch me) how to get through We I can see oh oh)

These Walls

HEATHER NOVA "The First Recording"
In your heart there are oceans In your heart there are flowering trees Look inside and live inside these walls Your body yearns In your dreams, you've seen castles In your dreams you've been kings and queens You've ridden white horses past these walls Your body yearns I'm not one to say I know what you go through I only wanna open wide the window and let sunlight through For you In your face, I see longing In your face, I see hopes and fears You've been locked for too long behind these walls Your body yearns I'm not one to say I know what you go through I only wanna open wide the window and let sunlight through For you Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me What you're feeling Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me What you need Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me Everything Take my hand and I'll lead you Take my word that I'll not deceive you I only want to carry you on beyond these walls Your body yearns I'm not one to say I know what you go through I only wanna open wide the window and let sunlight through For you

Melinda

JAMES MCMURTRY "Where'd You Hide The Body"
Don't expect no favors, nothing in return Tell all your cross-eyed neighbors that it's none of their concern Open the shades Melinda, let in the outside air I'm deep in doubt and I can't get out, and it must be dark in there I wanna walk with you in the morning mist Though I should be home by now And there must be some way outta this I was thinking you'd know how And my judgement may be shaky And my shoes are soaking through 'Cause the weeds are wet and I haven't yet made any sense of you All the midnight angels Fold their wings by dawn The same old wild-eyed strangers sit and watch em till they're gone I let the night unravel, forget my vain pursuits "Cept to feel that gray rock gravel On your road beneath my boots I wanna walk with you in the changing light When the shadows twist and play And the ghosts that kept me out all night We can chase em all away And the talk of those that wonder And the talk of those that curse Let em have their thrill, they'll need it We'll be no more for the worse Shine your eyes upon me, whisper long and low Mindful of the longing that we ever more may know Up the ridge on past you, looking down below You can see the stacks of Danville when the clouds don't hang so low Should you take a mind to, won't you join me there Open the shades Melinda, let in the outside air...
