Oh yeah, Midlo? You gonna dis me, but not zap the threads? Here goes:


Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I aint got no cigarettes
Two hours of pushin broom
Buys a eight by twelve four-bit room
Im a man of means by no means
King of the road

Third boxcar midnight train
Destination Bangor, Maine
Old worn out suit and shoes
I dont pay no union dues
I smoke old stogies I have found
Short but not too big around
Im a man of means by no means
King of the road

I know every engineer on every train
All the children and all of their names
And every handout in every town
And every lock that aint locked when no-ones around
I sing...

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cents
No phone, no pool, no pets
I aint got no cigarettes
Two hours of pushin broom
Buys a eight by twelve four-bit room
Im a man of means by no means

3. And another little present for whoisalhedges.
believe, that children are the future
Teach them well, and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride, to make it easier
Let the children's laughter
Remind us how it used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
Never found anyone who fulfilled that need
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I failed, if I succeed, at least I'll live as I believe
And no matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all is happening to me
I've found the greatest love of all inside of me
The greatest love of all is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
Is the greatest love of all

I believe, that children are the future
Teach them well, and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride, to make it easier
Let the children's laughter
Remind us how it used to be

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I failed, if I succeed, at least I'll live as I believe
And no matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all is happening to me
I've found the greatest love of all inside of me
The greatest love of all is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
Is the greatest love of all

WORST. SONG. EVER..

4. So many nights I sit by my window
Waiting for someone to sing me his song
So many dreams I kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark but now
You've come along

You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song

Rollin' at sea, adrift on the water
Could it be finally I'm turning for home?
Finally, a chance to say hey,
I love You
Never again to be all alone

You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song

You light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
and fill my nights with song

It can't be wrong
When it feels so right
'Cause You
You light up my life

10. This should help with the job interview
I'm sleeping
And right in the middle of a good dream
like all at once I wake up
From something that keeps knocking at my brain
Before I go insane
I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed
Screaming out the words I dread:
"I think I love you!" (I think I love you)

This morning, I woke up with this feeling
I didn't know how to deal with
And so I just decided to myself
I'd hide it to myself
And never talk about it
And didn't I go and shout it
When you walked into my room.
"I think I love you!" (I think I love you)

I think I love you
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for
I think I love you
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way

Believe me
You really don't have to worry
I only want to make you happy
And if you say,
hey, go away, I will
But I think better still
I ought to stay around and love you
Do you think I have a case?
Let me ask you to your face:
Do you think you love me?
I think I love you!

14. And yet another Partridge Family earworm.
Hello, world, here's a song that we're singin',
C'mon get happy
A whole lotta lovin' is what we'll be bringin',
We'll make you happy

We had a dream we'd go trav'lin' together
We'd spread a little lovin' then we'd keep movin' on
Somethin' always happens whenever we're together
We get a happy feelin' when we're singin' a song

Trav'lin' along there's a song that we're singin',
C'mon get happy
A whole lotta lovin' is what we'll be bringin',
We'll make you happy
We'll make you happy,
We'll make you happy

19. I think i'll go for a walk outside now
The summer sun's callin' my name
(I hear it now)
Just can't stay inside all day
Gotta get out, get me some of those rays

Everybody's smilin'
Sunshine day
Everybody's laughin'
Sunshine day
Everybody seems so happy today
It's a sunshine day

I think I'll go for a walk outside now
The summer sun knows me by name
He's callin me
I gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get away
I gotta get away, get away, get away, get away
Into the sunshine day....

Can't you dig the sunshine?
Love and sun are the same
Cant you hear him callin' your name?

Oh, I think I'll take a walk everyday now
The summer sun has shown the way to be happy now
I just can't stay inside all day
I gotta get out get me some of those rays

Everybody's smilin'
Sunshine day
Everybody's laughin'
Sunshine day
Everybody seems so happy today
It's a sunshine day

Can't you dig the sunshine?
Love and sun are the same
Cant you hear him callin' your name?

I think I'll go for a walk outside now
Summer sun's callin' my name
Just can't stay inside all day
Gotta get out get me some of those rays

Everybody's smilin'
Sunshine day
Everybody's laughin'
Sunshine day
Everybody seems so happy today
It's a sunshine day

Everybody's smilin'
Sunshine day
Everybody's laughin'
Sunshine day
Everybody seems so happy today
It's a sunshine day

26. Lollipop, Lollipop
Oh lolli lolli lolli
Lollipop lollipop.....

Call my baby lollipop
Tell you why
His kiss is sweeter than an apple pie
And when he does his shaky rockin' dance
Man, I haven't got a chance

I call him
Lollipop lollipop
Oh lolli lolli lolli
Lollipop lollipop.....

Sweeter than candy on a stick
Huckleberry, cherry or lime
If you had a choice
He'd be your pick
But lollipop is mine

Lollipop lollipop
Oh lolli lolli lolliz
Lollipop lollipop.....

Crazy way he thrills me
Tell you why
Just like a lightning from the sky
He loves to kiss me till I can't see straight
GEE, MY LOLLIPOP IS GREAT

I call him
Lollipop lollipop
Oh lolli lolli lolli
Lollipop lollipop.....

I LIKE this song.

Is there some backstory on it that I need to know about?

Because otherwise I could happily hum it all day!

21. Well, I need to thank him, then
because I am thrilled to be humming "King of the Road" rather than...you know...that OTHER song.

I alerted on you, by the way. Since you are a Lounge mod, would you do the honors and make sure that alert gets the attention it deserves in the mod forum?

23. And they called it puppy love...
Oh, I guess they'll never know
How a young heart really feels
And why I love her so

And they called it puppy love
Just because we're in our teens
Tell them all it isn't fair
To take away my only dream

I cry each night my tears for you
My tears are all in vain
I'll hope and I'll pray that maybe someday
You'll be back in my arms once again

Someone, help me, help me, help me please
Is the answer up above
How can I, how can I tell them
This is not a puppy love

27. Not so fast, missy!
Forget the puppies - I'm bringing out the big guns here...


Muskrat, Muskrat, candle light
Doing the town and doing it right in the evening
It's pretty pleasing
Muskrat Suzie, Muskrat Sam
Do the jitterbug out in Muskrat Land
And they shimmy... Sam is so skinny

And they whirl and they twirl and they tango
Singing and jinging a jango
Floating like the heavens above
Looks like Muskrat Love

Nibbling on bacon, chewing on cheese
Sam says to Suzie, Honey, would you please be my Mrs.
Suzie says yes with her kisses
Now he's tickling her fancy, rubbing her toes
Muzzle to muzzle, now, anything goes as they wriggle,
Sue starts to giggle

:rofl:

28. Puleeze. Here. Try this one on for size.
Girl: I'm a little bit country
Boy : I'm a little bit rock n roll
Girl: I'm a little bit Memphis & Nashville
Boy : With a little bit of motown in my soul
Girl: I don't know it's good or bad
Boy : I know I love it so
Girl: I'm a little bit country
Boy : I'm a little bit rock n roll
Girl: He's a little bit gentle
He's a little bit running wild
Boy : She's a little bit full grown woman
She's a little bit of motown
I don't know about happy or sad
Girl: My music makes me whole
I'm little bit country
Boy : I'm a little bit rock n roll
Girl: I like that peaceful easy feeling of
lay back country song
Boy : And when I sing my rock n roll
I'll sing it whole night long
Girl: I love my country with all my heart and soul
Boy : I'll go out on Saturday night for a
little bit rock n roll
Girl: I know I don't feel alright
Boy : No matter where I go
Girl: With a little bit country
Boy : And a little bit rock n roll

29. Amateurs! I'm ashamed of my fellow mods.
Try this one on for size:

See the tree, how big it's grown but friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad, the first day that she planted, it, was just a twig
Then the first snow came and she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited, slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart, kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
Once I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' late 'cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad but what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me and hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly and caught her cryin' needlessly
In the middle of a day
And it was in the early Spring when flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could

One day while I was not at home while she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey and I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life's an empty stage where Honey lived and Honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead and cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved

And see the tree how big it's grown but friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it

30. Well, the lyrics suck, I'll give you that
But I have no idea who sings this or how it goes, so as an earworm, I give it a 3, can't dance to it at all.

Don't you dare alert on me, either. I'm busy in the mod forum in heated discussion on another member who's posting here!

32. Nice try, EP. Try this one.
Goodbye to you my trusted friend
Weve known each other since we
Were nine or ten
Together weve climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and abcs
Skinned our hearts and
Skinned our knees

Goodbye my friend its hard to die
When all the birds are singing
In the sky
Now that spring is in the air
Pretty girls are everywhere
Think of me and ill be there

we had joy we had fun we had
seasons in the sun
but the hills that we climbed were
just seasons out of time

goodbye papa please pray for me
i was the black sheep of the family
you tried to teach me right from wrong
too much wine and too much song
wonder how i got along

goodbye papa its hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky
now that the spring is in the air
little children everywhere
when you see them ill be there

we had joy we had fun we had
seasons in the sun
but the wine and the songs like the
seasons have all gone
we had joy we had fun we had
seasons in the sun
but the wine and the song like
the seasons have all gone

goodbye michelle my little one
you gave me love and helped
me find the sun
and every time that i was down
you would always come around
and get my feet back on
the ground

goodbye michelle its hard to die
when all the birds are singing in
the sky
now that the spring is in the air
with the flowers everywhere
i wish that we could both be there

we had joy we had fun we had
seasons in the sun
but the hills that we climbed were
just seasons out of time

we had joy we had fun we had
seasons in the sun
but the wine and the song like the
seasons have all gone

we had joy we had fun we had
seasons in the sun
but the wine and the song like the
seasons have all gone

we had joy we had fun we had
seasons in the sun
but the wine and the song like the
seasons have all gone

40. OK that's it
My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far

Carried your books from school
Playin' make-believe you're married to me
You were fifth-grade, I was sixth
When we came to be
Walkin' home every day over Barnegat Bridge and Bay
'Til we grew into the me and you
Went our separate ways

My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far

Headed for city lights
Climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame
I worked my fingers to the bone
Made myself a name
Funny, I seemed to find
That no matter how the years unwind
Still I reminisce 'bout the girl I miss
And the love I left behind

My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far

My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far

My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far

I prefer this one, by my one true love, David Cassidy. :loveya:

Before I go insane

A love there is no cure for
I think I love you
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way

Believe me
You really don't have to worry
I only want to make you happy
And if you say,
hey, go away, I will
But I think better still

Do you think I have a case?
Let me ask you to your face:
Do you think you love me?
I think I love you!

They just didn't know what to make of so many of us in one place at one time, I guess!

Either that or we are the heavyweight champions of the world when it comes to earworms and they have all run off in fear of our skills!

:toast:

44. Here's a good one in retaliation
Girl I can't understand it why you want to hurt me
After all the things I've done for you.
I buy you champagne and roses and diamonds on your finger -
Diamonds on your finger -
Still you hang out all night
what am I to do?

My girl wants to party all the time
Party all the time

My girl wants to party all the time
party all the time.

She parties all the time - party all the time
She likes to party all the time - party all the time
party all the time - she likes to party all the time
party all the time.

Girl I've seen you in clubs just hanging out and dancing.
You give your number to every man you see.
You never come home at night because you're out romancing.
I wish you bring some of your love home to me.

But my girl wants to party all the time . . .
My girl wants to party all the time . . .

Party

party she likes to party all the time.
She likes to party all the time -
She lets her hair down
she lets her body down:
She lets her body

Party all the time - do you wanna get any party yeah.
Party all the time - party all the time.

45. You guys have me singing all of these
already. Some of them I actually like, but I'm old enough to remember when many of them actually came out as hits.

46. One of my favorite song....
I remember this from when I was but a wee lad, listening to the old Philco, propped up on my daddy's knee.....

49. Great song except when it was played in Maine
we all yelled back "It's Bang-GORE, not BANG-er"

Actually in Maine the "r" is barely aspirated, but that's another story.
:P

51. Amateurs
Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would merengue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar
Across a crowded floor, they worked from 8 till 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....they fell in love

(Copa Copacabana)

His name was Rico, he wore a diamond
He was escorted to his chair, he saw Lola dancin' there
And when she finished, he called her over
But Rico went a bit too far, Tony sailed across the bar
And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two
There was blood and a single gun shot
But just who shot who?

52. Amateurs? I think not.
I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice
A shadow of a man
A face through a window
Crying in the night
The night goes into

Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
you made me so happy, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
but I sent you away, oh Mandy
well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
I need you today, oh Mandy

I'm standing on the edge of time
I Walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing
The tears are in my mind
And nothing is rhyming, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
but I sent you away, oh Mandy
well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

Yesterday's a dream I face the morning
Crying on the breeze
the pain is calling, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
but I sent you away, oh Mandy
well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

53. This means war!
I've been alive forever,
And I wrote the very first song.
I put the words and the melodies together,
I am music,
And I write the songs.

I write the songs that make the whole world sing.
I write the songs of love and special things.
I write the songs that make the young girls cry.
I write the songs, I write the songs.

My home lies deep within you,
And I've got my own place in your sole.
Now, when I look out through your eyes,
I'm young again, even though I'm very old.

Chorus

Oh my music makes you dance
And gives you spirit to take a chance,
And I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move.
Music fills your heart,
Well, that's a real fine place to start.
It's from me it's for you,
It's from you, it's for me,
It's a world wide symphony.

Chorus x2

I am music, and I write the songs.

54. War?
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
War is something that I despise
For it means destruction of innocent lives
For it means tears in thousands of mothers' eyes
When their sons go out to fight to give their lives

War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

War
It's nothing but a heartbreaker
War
Friend only to the undertaker
War is the enemy of all mankind
The thought of war blows my mind
Handed down from generation to generation
Induction destruction
Who wants to die

War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

War has shattered many young men's dreams
Made them disabled bitter and meanLife is too precious to be fighting wars
each day
War can't give life it can only take it away

War
It's nothing but a heartbreaker
War
Friend only to the undertaker
Peace love and understanding
There must be some place for these things today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord there's gotta be a better way
That's better than
War

War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

55. I cannot believe I've read this entire thread.
I'm ruined for life. There's more harm in this thing than a box of hand grenades.

56. One you won't forget soon ...
If you're blue and you don't know
where to go to why don't you go
where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Different types who wear a day
coat pants with stripes and cutaway
coat perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Dressed up like a million-dollar trooper
Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
Come let's mix where Rockefellers
walk with sticks or um-ber-ellas
in their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz

Have you seen the well-to-doUp and down Park AvenueOn that famous thoroughfareWith their noses in the airHigh hats, and arrow collarsWhite spats, and lots of dollarsSpending every dimeFor a wonderful time

If you're blue and you don't know
where to go to why don't you go
where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Different types who wear a day
coat pants with stripes and cutaway
coat perfect fits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Dressed up like a million-dollar trooper
Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
Come let's mix where Rockefellers
walk with sticks or um-ber-ellas
in their mitts
Puttin' on the Ritz

(tap dance break) :applause:

Dressed up like a million-dollar trooperTryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
If you're blue and you don't know
where to go to why don't you go
where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz
Puttin' on the Ritz

Move...
Move...

Gotta dance
Gotta dance...

If you're blue and you don't know
where to go to why don't you go
where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz...
Puttin' on the Ritz...
Puttin' on the Ritz...
