Your Mother Should Know
The Magical Mystery Tour

Let’s all get up and dance to a song
That was a hit before your mother was born.
Though she was born a long, long time ago
Your mother should know (Your mother should…)
Your mother should know (…know.)
Sing it again.
Let’s all get up and dance to a song
That was a hit before your mother was born.
Though she was born a long, long time ago
Your mother should know (Your mother should…)
Your mother should know (…know.)
Lift up your hearts and sing me a song
That was a hit before your mother was born.
Though she was born a long, long time ago
Your mother should know (Your mother should…)
Your mother should know (Aaaah.)
Your mother should know (Your mother should…)
Your mother should know (Aaaah.)
Sing it again.
Da-da-da-da…
Though she was born a long, long time ago
Your mother should know (Your mother should…)
Your mother should know (Yeah.)
Your mother should know (Your mother should…)
Your mother should know (Yeah.)
Your mother should know (Your mother should…)
Your mother should know (Yeah.)

Mr. John Lennon - Mother

Mother, you had me but I never had you,
I wanted you but you didn’t want me,
So I got to tell you,
Goodbye, goodbye.
Farther, you left me but I never left you,
I needed you but you didn’t need me,
So I got to tell you,
Goodbye, goodbye.
Children, don’t do what I have done,
I couldn’t walk and I tried to run,
So I got to tell you,
Goodbye, goodbye.
Mama don’t go,
Daddy come home.
Mama don’t go,
Daddy come home.
Mama don’t go,
Daddy come home.
Mama don’t go,
Daddy come home.
Mama don’t go,
Daddy come home.
Mama don’t go,
Daddy come home.
Mama don’t go,
Daddy come home…

Bullet For My Valentine-Waking The Demon

[Verse 1]
Helpless,
My eyes are bleeding from the fear that’s inside,
You sealed your demise when you took what was mine,
Don’t try to stop me from avenging this world,
No voice to be heard

[Chorus]
Waking The Demon,
Where’d ya run to?
Walking in shadows,
Watch the blood flow,
There’s not much longer, so don’t try and fight,
Your bodies weakening, Walk to the light,
Those painful times so alone so ashamed,
I’m not coming back there’s nothing to gain

[Verse 2]
Caution,
There’s just no limits to the boundaries you push
I warned you but still you just f**k with my mind,
There’s no escape from this rage that I feel,
Nothing is real,

[Chorus]
Waking The Demon,
Where’d ya run to?
Walking in shadows,
Watch the blood flow,
There’s not much longer, so don’t try and fight,
Your bodies weakening, Walk to the light,
Those painful times so alone so ashamed,
I’m not coming back there’s nothing to gain

[Breakdown X2]
Breathe for me
Don’t wake me from this slumber.
Stay With me
Possession taking over

[Solo Lead-in]
Nooooooo!
Tread!

[Breakdown X2]
Breathe for me
Don’t wake me from this slumber.
Stay With me
Possession taking over

[Outro]
Waking The Demon!

A good song when you’re pissed off at somebody :tongue:

There’s a good one.

Mother -

  • Oh yes

Remember A Day - Floyd

Remember a day before today
A day when you were young.
Free to play alone with time
Evening never came.
Sing a song that can’t be sung
Without the morning’s kiss
Queen - you shall be it if you wish
Look for your king
Why can’t we play today
Why can’t we stay that way
Climb your favorite apple tree
Try to catch the sun
Hide from your little brother’s gun
Dream yourself away
Why can’t we reach the sun
Why can’t we blow the years away
Blow away
Blow away
Remember
Remember

Yer Blues - Beatles
Yes I’m lonely wanna die
Yes I’m lonely wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

In the morning wanna die
In the evening wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

My mother was of the sky
My father was of the earth
But I am of the universe
And you know what it’s worth
I’m lonely wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

The eagle picks my eye
The worm he licks my bone
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan’s Mr. Jones
Lonely wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

Black cloud crossed my mind
Blue mist round my soul
Feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock ‘n’ roll
Wanna die yeah wanna die
If I ain’t dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why

Optimistic ~ Radiohead

Flies are buzzing round my head
Vultures circling the dead
Picking up every last crumb
The big fish eat the little ones
The big fish eat the little ones
Not my problem, give me some

You can try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough
If you try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough

This one’s optimistic
This one went to market
This one just came out of the swamp
This one dropped a payload
Fodder for the animals
Living on animal farm

If you try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough
If you try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough

I’d really like to help you, man
I’d really like to help you, man
Nervous messed up marionettes
Floating around on a prison ship

If you try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough
If you can try the best you can
If you try the best you can
Dinosaurs roaming the Earth
Dinosaurs roaming the Earth
Dinosaurs roaming the Earth

If It Be Your Will - Leonard Cohen

If it be your will
That I speak no more
And my voice be still
As it was before
I will speak no more
I shall abide until
I am spoken for
If it be your will

If it be your will
That a voice be true
From this broken hill
I will sing to you
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing

From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing
If it be your will
If there is a choice
Let the rivers fill
Let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill
On all these burning hearts in hell
If it be your will
To make us well

And draw us near
And bind us tight
All your children here
In their rags of light
In our rags of light
All dressed to kill
And end this night
If it be your will

If it be your will.

From the Wicked musical. It’s a fun song.

What is this feeling? (Loathing)

(GALINDA)
Dearest darlingest Momsie and Popsicle

(ELPHABA)
My dear father

(BOTH)
There’s been some confusion over rooming her at Shiz

(ELPHABA)
But of course I’ll care for Nessa

(GALINDA)
But of course I’ll rise above it

(BOTH)
For I know that’s how you’d want me to respond, yes

(GALINDA)
Your clothing!

(BOTH)

Every little trait however small
Makes my very flesh begin to crawl
With simple utter loathing
There’s a strange exhileration
In such total detestation
It’s so pure, so strong!
Though I do admit it came on fast
Still I do believe that it can last
And I will be loathing loathing you
My whole life long!

(STUDENTS)
Dear Galinda you are just too good!
How do you stand it?
I don’t think we could!
She’s a terror, she’s a tartor
We don’t mean to show a bias
But Galinda you’re a martyr!

(GALINDA)
Well
These things are sent to try us!

(STUDENTS)
Poor Galinda forced to reside
With someone so disgusticified
We just want to tell you
We’re all on your side!
We share your
Loathing
(What is this feeling, so sudden and new?)
Unadulterated loathing
(I felt the moment I laid eyes on you!)
For her face, her voice, her clothing
(My pulse is rushing)
Let’s just say
(My head is reeling)
We loathe it all!

(ELPHABA & GALINDA)
Oh, what is this feeling?

For Good

(Elphaba):
I’m limited
Just look at me - I’m limited
And just look at you
You can do all I couldn’t do, Glinda
So now it’s up to you
For both of us - now it’s up to you…

(Glinda):
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

(Elphaba):
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend…

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you

(Glinda):
Because I knew you

(Both):
I have been changed for good

(Elphaba):
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for

(Glinda):
But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share

(Both):
And none of it seems to matter anymore

(Glinda; simultaneously with Elphaba):
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood

(Elphaba; simultaneously with Glinda):
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood

(Both):
Who can say if I’ve been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better

(Glinda):
And because I knew you…

(Elphaba):
Because I knew you…

(Both):
Because I knew you…
I have been changed for good…

Hey You

Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light
Don’t give in without a fight.

Hey you, out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you, with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I’m coming home.

But it was only fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As you can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not break free.
And the worms ate into his brain.

Hey you, standing in the road
always doing what you’re told,
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
Breaking bottles in the hall,
Can you help me?
Hey you, don’t tell me there’s no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.

I know it’s a movie soundtrack and all… but I love it!

Another way to Die
By Alica Keys and Jack White

Another ringer with the slick trigger finger
For her majesty
Another one with the golden tongue
Poisoning your fantasy
Another bill from a killer turned a thriller to a tragedy

Well, a door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Or someone that you think that you can trust
Is just
Another way to die

Another tricky little gun
Giving solace to the one
That will never see the sunshine
Another inch of your life sacrificed for you brother
In the nick of time
Another dirty money
Heaven sent honey
Turnin’ on a dime

Oh, a door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Or someone that you think that you can trust
Is just
Another way to die

Another girl with her finger on the world
Singing to you what you want to hear
Another gun thrown down and surrendered
Took away your fear
Another man that stands behind you
Lookin’ in the mirror!

A door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Or someone that you think that you can trust
Is just
Another way to die!

And another by Bon Jovi

It’s My Life

This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
You’re gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow’s getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain’t even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

It’s my life
And it’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
'Cause it’s my life

Better stand tall when they’re calling you out
Don’t bend, don’t break, baby, don’t back down

It’s my life
And it’s now or never
'Cause I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive

It’s my life
And it’s now or never
'Cause I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
'Cause it’s my life!

IRON MAIDEN-The Prisoner

“We want information, information, information.”
“Who are you?”
“The new number two.”
“Who is number one?”
“You are number six.”
“I am not a number, I am a free man.”
“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.”

I’m on the run, I kill to eat.
I’m starving now, I’m feeling dead on my feet.
Going all the way, I’m nature’s beast.
Do what I want, I’ll do as I please.

Run! Fight! To breathe! It’s tough!
Now you see me (haha!) Now you don’t.
Break the walls, I’m coming out.

Not a prisoner I’m a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don’t care, where the past was,
I know where I’m going…Out!

If you kill me, it’s self-defense,
If I kill you, then I call it vengeance.
Spit in your eye, I will defy,
you’ll be afraid when I call out your name.

Run! Fight! To breathe! It’s gonna be tough!
Now you see me, and now you don’t.
Break the walls, I’m coming out.

Not a prisoner, I’m a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don’t care, where the past was,
I know where I’m going.

I’m not a number, I’m a free man,
Live my life where I want to.
You’d better scratch me from your black book,
'cause I’ll run rings around you.

[Solo]

Not a prisoner, I’m a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don’t care where the past was,
I know where I’m going.

I’m not a number, I’m a free man,
Live my life where I want to.
You’d better scratch me from your black book,
'cause I’ll run rings around you.

Not a prisoner, I’m a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don’t care where the past was,
I know where I’m going.

The lyrics of “The Champion”:

two headed boy pt.2 by Neutral Milk Hotel

Daddy please hear this song that I sing
In your heart there’s a spark that just screams
For a lover to bring a child to your chest that could lay as you sleep
And love all you have left like your boy used to be
Long ago wrapped in sheets warm and wet

Blister please with those wings in your spine
Love to be with a brother of mine
How he’d love to find your tongue in his teeth
In a struggle to find secret songs that you keep wrapped in boxes so tight
Sounding only at night as you sleep

Brother see we are one in the same
And you left with your head filled with flames
And you watched as your brains fell out through your teeth
Push the pieces in place
Make your smile sweet to see
Don’t you take this away
I’m still wanting my face on your cheek

And when we break we’ll wait for our miracle
God is a place where some holy spectacle lies
And when we break we’ll wait for our miracle
God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life

Two headed boy she is all you could need
She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires
And retire to sheets safe and clean
But don’t hate her when she gets up to leave

Amongst my favorites. :happy:

Mother Nature’s Son - The Beatles

Born a poor young country boy–Mother Nature’s son
All day long I’m sitting singing songs for everyone.

Sit beside a mountain stream–see her waters rise
Listen to the pretty sound of music as she flies.

Find me in my field of grass–Mother Nature’s son
Swaying daises sing a lazy song beneath the sun.

Mother Nature’s son.

Don’t know what song it is

Fragment of the chorus:

But I really want to,
Do you in the backseat of my car!

WTF at its finest, people.
Does anyone know what this song’s name is?

Transylvanian Concubine
Rasputina, a horror bock band, in their début album Thanks for the Ether.

If you want to know how
To fly high, then go now
To the place where all the concubines
Meet and converse with them
Marvel at their pale skin
Wonder how they chew on their pointy
Teeth and hair are beauty
They know it’s their duty
To be countess in their hearts and their
Minds that have to whisper
See in them a sister
Look into their eyes and you’ll become
Transylvanian Concubine.
You know what flows here like wine.

Sorrow is their master
Cackling with laughter
Now he’s having just one piece of
Cakey is their make-up
Catholics try to shake up
All the things that form their lives, but they’re
Dead, their sighs, their songs
They know what they do is wrong.
Stay here with us, it’s just time.
Transylvanian Concubine.

Candelabra’s lighted
Satan has been sighted
Never has there been an evening like
This is what they wanted
Always to feel hunted
You can never be too rich or too
Thin. The blood has run out.
Fangs ruin any cute pout
Morning has come now they’ve flown
What have you learned from what has been shown?

Bruno: Bock band?

I’m Only Sleeping - Beatles

When I wake up early in the morning,
Lift my head, I’m still yawning
When I’m in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream

Please don’t wake me, no
don’t shake me
Leave me where I am
I’m only sleeping

Everybody seems to think I’m lazy
I don’t mind, I think they’re crazy
Running everywhere at such a speed
Till they find, there’s no need

Please don’t spoil my day
I’m miles away
And after all
I’m only sleeping

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time

Lying there and staring at the ceiling
Waiting for a sleepy feeling

Please don’t spoil my day
I’m miles away
And after all
I’m only sleeping

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time

When I wake up early in the morning,
Lift my head, I’m still yawning
When I’m in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream

Please don’t wake me, no
don’t shake me
Leave me where I am
I’m only sleeping
