1. Some Heads are Gonna Roll -- Judas Priest
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 12:00 PM by JonathanChance
You can look to the left and
Look to the right
But you will live in danger tonite
When the enemy comes he will
Never be heard
Hell blow your mind and not say a word
Blinding lights--flashing colors
Sleepless nights
If the man with the power
Cant keep it under control
Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll
(repeat)
The power-mad freaks who are
Ruling the earth
Will show how little they think youre worth
With animal lust theyll
Devour your life
And slice your word to bits like a knife
One last day burning hell fire
Youre blown away
If the man with the power
Cant keep it under control
Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll
(repeat)
Know what its like
When youre taken for granted
There goes your life
Its so underhanded
If the man with the power
Cant keep it under control
Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll

4. Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash
I hear the train a comin'
it's rolling round the bend
and I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
but that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Anton..
When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
now every time I hear that whistle I hang my head and cry..

I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
they're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars.
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
but those people keep a movin'
and that's what tortures me...

Well if they'd free me from this prison,
if that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move just a little further down the line
far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay
and I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.....

5. Tommy Boy's very own favorite song :)
Words and music by L. Hays and P. Seeger

If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening ... all over this land,
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between all of my brothers and my sisters
All over this land.

If I had a bell
I'd ring it in the morning
I'd ring it in the evening ... all over this land,
I'd ring out danger
I'd ring out a warning
I'd ring out love between all of my brothers and my sisters
All over this land.

If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening ... all over this world,
I'd sing out danger
I'd sing out a warning
I'd sing out love between all of my brothers and my sisters
All over this land.

If I've got a hammer
And I've got a bell
And I've got a song to sing ... all over this land,
It's a hammer of justice
It's a bell of freedom
It's a song about love between all of my brothers and my sisters
All over this land.

6. Itoxico! by Raymond "Pig" Watts
You've been lied to spied on crucified and railed at
And he'll spit on the words of your hopeless excuses
Wrong or right? Day over night?
Who cares? It's a one-sided fight
You got full specification black hole rules
Your world's gonna be his thermal pool
Wasted lives make waste
Spare a dime - You're wasting time
You've got a right to cry - you're gonna die
As he seeps and creeps through the desert sand
And he'll be whistling through your lungs tonight
While the lights go out across the land
T-O-X-I-C-O
T-O-X-I-C-O
Toxico no no no
Toxico yeah yeah yeah yeah
He's got a catalogue of crimes
From corporate grimes
And six billion shares in oblivion
Your dividend is a life of hell
With a rotten rope and a broken bell
Ignorance brews a wicked potion
Stupidity is the mother of devotion
Want not - waste not
It's total liquidation back to backwards
Toxico - that cute pariah
Toxico - he's the sweetest liar
This is trial by fire
In a kingdom of cash
Toxico - with that holy face
The rotten apple is the human race
Your illegitimate human son of greed
He'll give you pyaemia
Sapraemia
Septicaemia
Leukemia
Toxico is highly elated!
Toxico is intoxicated...
He's burstin' out of his boots
With his crashes to ashes and lust for dust
You'll be crawling across the face of this furnace
Begging for mercy - digging for death
He'll wrap his fingers round your neck
And squeeze... 'till your last breath
He'll give you shocks and stares teenage airs
Golden wares radiation scares
He's a permanent emergency coming you
You're permanantly impotent to what he'll do
He hangs around outside school gates
Peddling sweet inticing bait
With four headed piggies waiting in the wings
Mutations are such lovely things
Toxico - that sweet pariah
Toxico - he's the sweetest liar
This is trial by fire
In a kingdom of cash
Toxico with that holy face
The rotten apple is the human race
Your illegitimate human son of greed
Malignant Maligner - cancerous refined
He's your illegitimate human son of greed
He'll give you pyaemia
Sapraemia
Septicaemia
Leukemia
Toxico with that holy face
The rotten apple is the human race
Your illegitimate human son of greed
Toxico!

I need to reaquire that album. Had Spaceman on it too if I remember correctly.

Nilsson was great, died way too young.

14. Oops, there goes another Rubber Tree Plant
:)

High Hopes

Next time you're found with your chin on the ground

There's a lot to be learned so look around



Just what makes that little ol' ant

Think he'll move that rubber tree plant

Anyone knows an ant, can't

Move a rubber tree plant



But he's got high hopes... he's got high hopes

He's got high apple pie in the sky hopes

So any time you're getting low

'Stead of letting go,

Just remember that ant.

Oops there goes another rubber tree

Oops there goes another rubber tree

Oops there goes another rubber tree plant.



When troubles call and your back's to the wall

There's a lot to be learned, that wall could fall.



Once there was a silly ol' ram,

Thought he'd punch a hole in a dam;

No one could make that ram, scram,

He kept buttin' that dam



But he's got high hopes... he's got high hopes

He's got high apple pie in the sky hopes

So any time you're feeling bad

'Stead of feeling sad

Just remember that ram.

Oops there goes a billion kilowatt

Oops there goes a billion kilowatt

Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam!



Next time you're found with your chin on the ground

There's a lot to be learned so look around



Just what makes that little ol' ant

Think he'll move that rubber tree plant

Anyone knows an ant, can't

Move a rubber tree plant



So keep your high hopes, keep your high hopes.

Keep your high apple pie in the sky hopes.

A problem's just a toy balloon

They'll be bursting soon

They're just bound to go POP!

Oops there goes another problem ker...

Oops there goes another problem ker...

Oops there goes another problem kerplop.

Kerplop!

32. THE best song in ANY of these celebratory situations is
Fortunate Son

Some folks are born made to wave the flag,
Ooh, theyre red, white and blue.
And when the band plays hail to the chief,
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, lord,

It aint me, it aint me, I aint no senators son, son.
It aint me, it aint me; I aint no fortunate one, no,

Yeah!
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, dont they help themselves, oh.
But when the taxman comes to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes,

It aint me, it aint me, I aint no millionaires son, no.
It aint me, it aint me; I aint no fortunate one, no.

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,
Ooh, they send you down to war, lord,
And when you ask them, how much should we give?
Ooh, they only answer more! more! more! yoh,

It aint me, it aint me, I aint no military son, son.
It aint me, it aint me; I aint no fortunate one, one.

It aint me, it aint me, I aint no fortunate one, no no no,
It aint me, it aint me, I aint no fortunate son, no no no,

35. Lawyers, Guns, and Money
by Warren Zevon

Well, I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the Russians, too

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock and the hard place
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck

Now I'm hiding in Honduras
I'm a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

36. Another Cash song: 25 Minutes to Go
Well they're building a gallows outside my cell
I've got 25 minutes to go
And the whole town's waitin' just to hear me yell
I've got 24 minutes to go
Well they gave me some beans for my last meal
I've got 23 minutes to go
But nobody asked me how I feel
I've got 22 minutes to go
Well I sent for the governor and the whole dern bunch
with 21 minutes to go
And I sent for the mayor but he's out to lunch
I've got 20 more minutes to go
Then the sheriff said boy I gonna watch you die
got 19 minutes to go
So I laughed in his face and I spit in his eye
got 18 minutes to go
Now hear comes the preacher for to save my soul
with 13 minutes to go
And he's talking bout' burnin' but I'm so cold
I've 12 more minutes to go
Now they're testin' the trap and it chills my spine
11 more minutes to go
And the trap and the rope aw they work just fine
got 10 more minutes to go
Well I'm waitin' on the pardon that'll set me free
with 9 more minutes to go
But this is for real so forget about me
got 8 more minutes to go
With my feet on the trap and my head on the noose
got 5 more minutes to go
Won't somebody come and cut me loose
with 4 more minutes to go
I can see the mountains I can see the skies
with 3 more minutes to go
And it's to dern pretty for a man that don't wanna die
2 more minutes to go
I can see the buzzards I can hear the crows
1 more minute to go
And now I'm swingin' and here I go-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!
