Song Lyrics
cap, captain miss america
So, last week, supertailz and thunderemerald and rosefox and I were talking about the urge to post song lyrics on facebook like teenagers.

I decided it would be fun to just post the ones I have had in my head recently that I *want* to post. Without commentary, I guess?

I've got a cravin' love for blazin' speed, got a hopped up Mustang Ford. Jump into the wagon, love, throw your panties overboard. I can write you poems make a grown man lose his mind; I ain't no pig without a wig; I hope you treat me kind. --Bob Dylan, High Water (For Charley Patton)

As he undressed her with his eyes, her weakness was his talent. How could she know as she passed through the lights that her dress would become transparent? -- Elvis Costello, Satellite

White lady growlin' on a chain. Peacock caw the sound of my lover's name. The tone was pure and played on gut from your birdhouse aflame. -- Wovenhand, Story and Pictures

And, err, others. What songs are stuck in your head today?

When we met I thought
money was everything
so I let you buy the house,
the cars, the ring
but I can't take your perpetual whining
and you can't sing

-- Yeah oh Yeah, Magnetic Fields

He got up and tried it again
For lack of persistence is surely a sin
As he stood by and waited to be called

He looked to the lightning with glee
And admired his vessel for it's symmetry
Feeling twelve units shy of a bachelor's degree

As he stood by and waited to be called
He stood by and waited to be called
He stood by and waited like the others before
For his turn to go over the falls

-- Primus, Over The Falls

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.
