    I Like Bread and Butter by the NEWBEATS


    I like bread and butter,
    I like toast and jam,
    That's what my baby feeds me,
    I'm her loving man.

    He likes bread and butter,
    He likes toast and jam,
    That's what his baby feeds him,
    He's her loving man.

    She don't cook mashed potatoes,
    She don't cook T-bone steaks,
    Don't feed me peanut butter,
    She knows that I can't take.

    He likes bread and butter,
    He likes toast and jam,
    That's what his baby feeds him,
    He's her loving man.

    Got home early one morning,
    Much to my surprise,
    She was eating chicken and dumplings
    With some other guy.

    No more bread and butter,
    No more toast and jam,
    I found my baby eating
    With some other man.

    The Rose- Bette Middler

    Some say love it is a river
    that drowns the tender reed
    Some say love it is a razer
    that leaves your soul to blead

    Some say love it is a hunger
    an endless aching need
    I say love it is a flower
    and you it's only seed

    It's the heart afraid of breaking
    that never learns to dance
    It's the dream afraid of wakingthat never takes the chance
    It's the one who won't be taken
    who cannot seem to give
    and the soul afraid of dyingthat never learns to live

    When the night has been too lonely
    and the road has been too long
    and you think that love is only
    for the lucky and the strong
    Just remember in the winterfar beneath the bitter snows
    lies the seed
    that with the sun's love
    in the spring
    becomes the rose

    When the sun shines
    We’ll shine together
    Told you I'll be here forever
    That I'll always be your friend
    Took an oath
    I'mma stick it out 'till the end
    Now that it's raining more than ever
    Know that we still have each other
    You can stand under my Umbrella
    You can stand under my Umbrella

    Both Sides Now- Joni Mitchell

    Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
    And feather canyons everywhere, i've looked at cloud that way.
    But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
    So many things i would have done but clouds got in my way.

    I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
    From up and down, and still somehow
    It's cloud illusions i recall.
    I really don't know clouds at all.

    Moons and junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way you feel
    As every fairy tale comes real; i've looked at love that way.
    But now it's just another show. you leave 'em laughing when you go
    And if you care, don't let them know, don't give yourself away.

    I've looked at love from both sides now,
    From give and take, and still somehow
    It's love's illusions i recall.
    I really don't know love at all.

    Tears and fears and feeling proud to say "i love you" right out loud,
    Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, i've looked at life that way.
    But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say
    I've changed.
    Something's lost but something's gained in living every day.

    I've looked at life from both sides now,
    From win and lose, and still somehow
    It's life's illusions i recall.
    I really don't know life at all.

    Carly Simon - Love Of My Life Lyrics



    I love lilacs and avocados
    Ukuleles and fireworks
    And Woody Allen and walking in the snow
    But you've got to know that

    You're the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    From the moment I first saw you
    The second that you were born
    I knew that you were the love of my life
    Quite simply the love of my life

    I love Lucy and pumpernickel bread
    The Statue Of Liberty and standing ovations
    And falling into bed
    But get it through your head that

    You're the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    From the moment I first saw you
    The second that you were born
    I knew that you were the love of my life
    Quite simply the love of my life

    You can drive me crazy
    You can drive me anywhere
    Here are the keys
    Just do as you please
    It may not always be easy

    But you're the love of my life
    My heart is riding on a runaway train
    You are the love of my life
    through all the pleasure and pain
    From the moment I first saw you
    I knew it right away
    I knew that you were the love of my life
    Simply the love of my life
    You are the love
    The great love of my life.

    Elvis Presley - Jailhouse Rock Lyrics

    The warden threw a party in the county jail.
    The prison band was there and they began to wail.
    The band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing.
    You should've heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.
    Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

    Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone,
    Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone.
    The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang,
    the whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang.
    Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

    Number forty-seven said to number three:
    "You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
    I sure would be delighted with your company,
    come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me."
    Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

    The sad sack was a sittin' on a block of stone
    way over in the corner weepin' all alone.
    The warden said, "Hey, buddy, don't you be no square.
    If you can't find a partner use a wooden chair."
    Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

    Shifty Henry said to Bugs, "For Heaven's sake,
    no one's lookin', now's our chance to make a break."
    Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, "Nix nix,
    I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks."
    Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    was dancin' to the Jailhouse Rock.

    Yeah, I pretty much killed that thread Onslow. :redface: :frown1:
    At the risk of killing another one, here I go again.

    I heard k.d. lang's version of The Air That I Breathe yesterday.
    I went digging for it on YouTube, but couldn't find it.
    I stumbled on this Simply Red version though.

    The lyrics will be too sappy for some, but I tend to get sucked into sappy.
    The song was originally done in 1974 by The Hollies.

    The Air That I Breathe

    If I could make a wish
    I think I'd pass
    Can't think of anything I need
    No cigarettes, no sleep, no light, no sound
    Nothing to eat, no books to read

    Making love with you
    Has left me peaceful, warm, and tired
    What more could I ask
    There's nothing left to be desired
    Peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
    So sleep, silent angel, go to sleep

    Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe
    And to love you
    All I need is the air that I breathe
    Yes to love you
    All I need is the air that I breathe

    Peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
    So sleep, silent angel, go to sleep

    Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe
    And to love you
    All I need is the air that I breathe
    Yes to love you
    All I need is the air that I breathe

    Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe
    And to love you
    All I need is the air that I breathe
    Yes to love you
    All I need is the air that I breathe
    And to love you
    All I need is the air that I breathe
    Yes to love you

    What do you say? - Reba Mcentire

    YouTube - What do you say?

    Stuck at a red light outside an adult bookstore
    His son said, "daddy, what are all those x’s for"
    As the light turned green he changed the subject fast
    He started talkin’ ’bout football as they drove right past

    Chorus:
    What do you say in a moment like this
    When you can’t find the words oh to tell it like it is
    Just bite your tongue and let your heart lead the way
    Let’s get out of here oh what do you say

    Seventeen years old she was out with her friends
    They started drinken’ at some party ’til she was three sheets to the
    Wind
    Her momma always told her she can call no matter what
    She was cryin’ on the front steps when her mom showed up

    Repeat chorus

    Sometimes you got to listen to the silence
    And give yourself a little time to think

    Her every breath is weaker than the last
    And lately when she sleeps she talks about the past
    Her husband knows she’s tired of holding on
    She looks at him and says I want to go home

    What do you say in a moment like this
    When you can’t find the words to tell it like it is
    Just close your eyes and let your heart lead the way
    Oh what do you say

    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love

    [Verse 1]
    Now little lisa is only 9 years old
    Shes tryin to figure out why the world is so cold
    Why shes all all alone and they never met her family
    Mamas always gone and she never met her daddy
    Part of her is missin and nobody will listenin
    Mama is on drugs gettin high up in the kitchen
    Bringin home men at different hours of the night
    Startin with laughs--usually endin in a fight
    Sneak into her room while her mamas knocked out
    Tryin to have his way and little lisa says 'ouch'
    She tries to resist but then all he does is beat her
    Tries to tell her mom but her mama don't believe her
    Lisa is stuck up in the world on her own
    Forced to think that hell is a place called home
    Nothin else to do but some get some clothes and pack
    She says shes bout to run away and never come back.

    [Hook]
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love

    [Verse 2]
    Little nicole is only 10 years old
    Shes steady tryin to figure why the world is so cold
    Why shes not pretty and nobody seems to like her
    Alcoholic step dad always wanna strike her
    [ Runaway Love lyrics found on Complete Album Lyrics: Your source for Rock, Pop, HipHop and R&B album lyrics ]
    Yells and abuses, leaves her with some bruises
    Teachers ask questions she makin up excuses
    Bleedin on the inside, cryin on the out
    Its only one girl really knows what she about
    Her name is lil stacy and they become friends
    Promise that they always be tight til the end
    Until one day lil stacy gets shot
    A drive by bullet went stray up on her block
    Now nicole stuck up in the world on her own
    Forced to think that hell is a place called home
    Nothin else to do but some get some clothes and pack
    She says shes bout to run away and never come back.

    [Hook]
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love
    Runaway love

    [Verse 3]
    Little erica is eleven years old
    Shes steady tryin to figure why the world is so cold
    So she pops x to get rid of all the pain
    Cause shes havin sex with a boy whos sixteen
    Emotions run deep and she thinks shes in love
    So theres no protection hes usin no glove
    Never thinkin bout the consequences of her actions
    Livin for today and not tomorrows satisfaction
    The days go by and her belly gets big
    The father bails out he aint ready for a kid
    Knowin her mama will blow it all outta proportion
    Plus she lives poor so no money for abortion
    Erica is stuck up in the world on her own
    Forced to think that hell is a place called home
    Nothin else to do but get her clothes and pack
    She say shes about to run away and never come back.

    [Hook]
    Runaway love [repeats til end]

    Not by me, it hadn't.:rolleyes::biggrin::tongue:


    No really, I had just read something on Judy Collins in the American Profile magazine in my newspaper, this morning, which is why I posted it. I've been operating on very little sleep the past couple of days, so I must've forgot you'd posted it.
