RAY STEVENS lyrics

Vacation Bible School

Original and similar lyrics
Well me and Doris went on vacation We decided we needed more than recreation So we enrolled in a Bible camp retreat. I got the directions and we took off It only took six hours to get completely lost Way back up in the mountains of east Tennessee. Well it was getting real dark And I was starting to fret. Doris said look yonder bet that's it. She pointed to the lights To this little church way back in the brush. An old man met us, I said just two He escorted us down to the very first pew I said Doris I don't think this is the right place She just said hush. Well they preached a sermon and sang a song Then they preached some more And went on and on. Nearly wore me out I'd had about all I could take. Then they pulled down the shades Things quitted down. This guy next to me punched me Said here past this down I turned to look and son of a gun He handed me a snake. Oh the night that me and Doris Went running through the forest Way back up in the hills of Tennessee. Yeah we started making tracks When they broke out that diamond back It scared the devil out of poor old Doris and me . He said take it man don't you believe I said I believe all right I believe I'll leave. And I reached for Doris but she done fainted away White as a sheet. Now I couldn't pick her up And I couldn't find the door And them rattlers were crawling All around the floor. And Friend that's when the spirit hit my feet I started running down the aisles And bouncing off the walls Like somebody teed off a new golf ball In a tiled bathroom Friends I'll tell you I was moving on. I'd run past Doris every minute or two Trying to shake her awake her but it wasn't no use For a while there I thought The Lord had called the poor thing home. Then somebody dropped a big one in her lap Doris come too and something in her snapped She grabbed that thing by the tail And Commenced swinging it around her head Then she gave it a crack like LashLaRue The head came off and sailed across the room Then she did a tap dance On the rest of them suckers till they was all dead. Well I grabbed her by the hand And we headed for the car When she hollered to the preacher, I don't know who you are Or where you came from Or how you ever learn how to preach. But let me tell you something You old raggedy cat You don't know nothing About running a Bible Camp And me and my husband Are on our way to Daytona Beach. Oh the night that me and Doris Went running through the forest Way back up in the hills of Tennessee. Yeah we started making tracks When they broke out that diamond back It scared the devil out of poor old Doris and me.

Believe In You

Cole Jude
I'll play guitar to make the rent And you can make our family three I might not make a million dollars But a million dollars won't make me I'm looking out on the stars tonight Thinking about this human zoo There's poor old Leo watching the cars roll by Screaming up at who knows who Believe in you And I'll believe in me Desperate men divided In these glorious fields of green We all pray to heaven To help us mend this broken machine There's too much talk about the clouds of gray When there's a great big sky of blue I turn off the T.V. and look in your eyes And I know that I've found something true Just believe in you, yeah And I'll believe in me This is the age of the icons made of sand From the rock and roll star to the local preacher man From the baseball player to the politician with his plans Well darling, just believe in you Oh, and I'll believe in you too Someone's gonna sue for harrassment Someone gonna sue 'cause they can't forget Someone gonna sue poor old Philip J. Morris For selling 'em one too many cigarettes And Philip Morris, well he'll probably sue me For putting his name in this song And all across America We try and teach our children how to get along Believe in you And I'll believe in me I'll believe in me

Chocolate Chewing Gum

K-OS "Atlantis: Hymns For Disco"
Wake up in the morning, press the Colgate Brush my teeth, then I'm hitting the streets to meditate Went outside, and the sky was rather grey But I paid no attention kept moving upon my way Went down the block, and skanked a little further When this kid came up, he said what's up with MC Murdah? That was then son, this is now I live in the moment like a why to a how Wow, that's profound, just break that down That's when I proceeded to show him the pro to the noun I found instead of trying to be what I was I be what I is which makes us the wizard of us Plus I'm really sick and tired of complaints Of hip hop this, rap that and what it ain't I'd rather do a dance, find some romance Or pray to my father in heaven to get a chance He glanced down and looked rather disappointed But then he looked up and looked up and looked ra-rather anointed He said, "MC Murdah, they wait for the man And the master of the ceremony that was unplanned" Damn, you quit pit you know Plus I grab microphones from here to Gadow I keep my mind still like the art of tablow And no matter what they say I go on with the show We laughed, and gave each other a pound Exchanged numbers, I said kid see you around Continued with my stroll for that lazy afternoon But then out from the sky I heard a great big boom Eh, yo, I couldn't tell you why But purple rain straight started falling from the sky I started to cry, I thought it a lie I prayed for my mother oh me oh my You should of seen the people jumping and crying and screaming Believing the seasons was changing; the rain was the pain of the nature And running and coming and going and low and beholding And wishing the sun was golden and hoping it wasn't over Damn, now people to this day can't tell you what I saw It was raw; it broke every mortal thought, every law Yo, in awe I was, a buzz, then a light, and it said to me right "We be them rap kids from galaxies a far And it seems that maybe your rhymes are up to par So if you want to live on within this universe You have to kick a dope verse, and don't curse" Oh hey well what do you know? My life came down to how well I could really flow So I thanked god for this magna stage And dropped that rhyme on the corner and it went this way: I take it to the limit infinite, I been it committed to finish I did it and if they bit it I heavy hitted to get it This record of water is sort of the slaughter of mortal thoughts It borders on orders and can't be thought of the "bought by cash" K dash, fly from going to last, what is the task you ask And what alien form is this man talking Is he human or Vulcan, escaping or stalking, Or walking away from the rhyme by sledding down white hills of snow Tobogganing canadiana, my granny Georgiana, my brother stays in Atlanta I rock over cabanas of intellectual manners, You get hit by the gamma rays sort of like David Banner Now the mind is a terrible thing to waste Even worse is the great void of infinite space That extends beyond time Beyond all math Your watch can only measure the second that just passed but That doesn't matter; I'm just a B-Boy That gets mad excited when the crowd makes [sound of crowd noise]

Just Say Yeah

JACKSON BROWNE "Time The Conqueror"
I wanted to be somebody you see When you're feeling good I started looking for your little MG In my neighborhood I started feeling kind of funny and free When you were around And I began to cook up a plan to Take you out of town Not really dating, we were relating And we were friends It's hard to say where the relating leaves off And where loves begins A friend will tell you all kinds of stuff That a lover won't And you would think you would see love coming But of course, you don't I want to hold you, don't want to mold you Into someone else I never could have invented you Or written you so well I never met another woman who Possessed your particular charms I want to be that man who will see that You never come to harm Must have been you I dreamed of Yeah that was you all right You were the laughter I was listening to Standing in the light You were the lover in the sunrise who Had begun to slip away Though I was just a kid I must have known You'd be real someday I want to know you, I want to show you That you're not alone You've been the only thing steadyin' me And I guess we've both known Maybe you haven't been that ready to see That I could take you there Well that was then, but this is when I need to hear you say yeah Baby just say yeah

Cry Like A Baby

KASEY CHAMBERS "The Captain"
Well I never lived through the great depression somethimes I feel as though I did And I don't have answers for every single question But that's OK 'cos I'm just a kid Well I've seen pictures of my mother When she looked exactly like me And I've seen all my friends running for cover Running from something they can't see And it's not easy to get handle on my life but I have tried it time and time again But I still cry just like a baby And I answer back to feel a little free And I still fly even though I'm gonna fall But I'm too far to let it get to me Well I'm not much like my generation Their music only hurts my ears And I don't hide my pain to save my reputation It's too hard to keep up with these years And it's not easy to a habit disappear But I have tried it time and time again
