Here are some lyrics for 10 of the songs I listened to on the way to work today. Can you identify them? No Googling!
1: But you all know I tried
So forget about it, girl
My head’s like a kite
When such a creature I sight.
I seem to recognize your face – Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town by Pearl Jam
Haunting, familiar, yet I cant seem to place it
Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name
Lifetimes are catching up with me
You know I didn’t even know her name – December 1963 by The Four Seasons
But I was never gonna be the same
What a lady, what a night!
4: shes crazy about her daddy
Oh she believes in him
She loves her daddy.
Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see. (cover version, bonus points for the artist I listened to) – Strawberry Fields, but by whom??
It’s getting hard to be someone but it all works out.
It doesn’t matter much to me.
I’d bring her gold and frankincense and myrrh – Jane by The Barenaked Ladies
She thought that I was making fun of her
She made me feel I was fourteen again
7: Life is so boring it’s really got me snoring I’m wearing out the flooring in a cheap motel
But I don’t have to work and I might be sinning but I never have to listen to the rings of school bells
8: I dream of a place that’s hedged with roses
With a man in the middle don’t talk in riddles
You get hung on every single word
Some call it high, some call it low
9: tongue tied and a visceral third degree
feel warm center of gravity
wash us all away
body never lies
Xylla was an archetype,. – 88 Lines about 44 Women – but by whom?
the voodoo queen the queen of rap.
Joan thought men were second best
to masturbating in the bath
