Doctor, what happened?

I was the man of the hour

Till she came along

And something went sour

Chorus:

She took me high as the mountains

Left me blue as the sea

Till she made a wreck outta me

Doctor, you told me

About love at first sight

But you never told me

I did not see right

It's your explanations

Mean nothing to me

There's only one diganosis

To which I agree

Chorus

Doctor, don't worry

Ignore my depression

I am alone

But within her possession

She's taken my heart

And left the incision

Though I'll never heal

I admire that kind of precision

Chorus

Chorus

Aloha,

Brad

You can talk to me

As long as you please

But please let's don't talk heart to heart

I can talk to yours

But you can't talk to mine

'Cause mine's outside in the car

Well I'll just sit right here

And you can buy me a beer

Bend my ear 'till the teardrops start

Well just stand right there

Or pull up a chair

But this barstool's reserved for my heart

(chorus)

Here it comes

Through the door

Trailing blood

Across the floor

Now it climbs

Up its stool

To its place

By its fool

I was shot in the war

Through the clothes that I wore

But I did not get shot through my heart

My heart was okay

Till I lost it one day

To a woman who tore it apart

Well I nursed it back

And some say in fact

That it's better than it was at the start

Well just stand right there

Or pull up a chair

But this barstool's reserved for my heart

(chorus)

Aloha,

Brad

There will come a time when everybody

Who is lonely will be free . . .

TO SING & DANCE & LOVE

There will come a time when every evil

That we know will be an evil . . .

THAT WE CAN RISE ABOVE

Who cares if hair is long or short

Or sprayed or partly grayed . . .

WE KNOW THAT HAIR AIN'T WHERE IT'S AT

(there will come a time when you won't even be ashamed if you are fat!)

WAH WAH-WAH WAH

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

La la la la la la la la (a-a-ah!)

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

La la la la la la la la (oo-wee-ooh!)

Diddle-diddle-dee

(Diddle-diddle-dee)

Diddle-diddle-dee

(Diddle-diddle-dee)

Diddle-diddle-dee

(Diddle-diddle-dee)

Diddle-diddle-dee

(Diddle-diddle-dee)

La la la la la la la la la la la la

La la la la la

WAH WAH-WAH WAH

There will come a time when everybody

Who is lonely will be free . . .

TO SING & DANCE & LOVE (dance and love)

There will come a time when every evil

That we know will be an evil . . .

THAT WE CAN RISE ABOVE (rise above)

Who cares if you're so poor you can't afford

To buy a pair of Mod A Go-Go stretch-elastic pants . . .

THERE WILL COME A TIME WHEN YOU CAN EVEN

TAKE YOUR CLOTHES OFF WHEN YOU DANCE

Lost in their eyes as you hurry by

Counting the broken ties they decide

Love comes to you and then after

Dream on, on to the heart of the sunrise

Lost on a wave that you're dreaming

Dream on, on to the heart of the sunrise

Sharp

Distance

How can the wind with its arms all around me?

Sharp

Distance

How can the wind with so many around me?

I feel lost in the city...

1.

Mexican Americans

Like Education

So they go to night School

And study Spanish

And get a "B"

2. (less funny)

Will you still see me tomrrow?

No, I got too much to do.

Well a question ain't really a question

When you know the answer to.

And the sky is dark and still now

On the hill where the angels sing

Ain't it funny how an old broken bottle

Looks just like a diamond ring

3) more funny (I saw the chorus to this earlier. Prine rocks.)

He ain't got laid in a month of Sundays

Caught him once and he was sniffin' my undies

He ain't too sharp but he gets things done

Drinks his beer like it's oxy-gen

He's my baby, don't say maybe, never gonna let him go.

Before you were born, you had it all

All the love and riches in the world.

Before you were born, you'd fly along the wind

Then you were born and then you want it all back again

Before you were born, you had no fears

The sun was your smile and the rain was your tears

And nothing grew without the rain and your smile had no end,

Then you were born and now you want it all back again.

Before you were born you sang in tune

You sat still as a stone and ran rings around the moon

Quick as lightning above a riverbend

Then you were born and now you want it all back again

Before you were born, babe you were free

And now you're chained to happiness and misery

Before you were born, you were without sin

Then you were born and now you want it all back again

Well I'll tell you this I'm glad you were born

I'll drink another tea as I light my cigarette

Throw another log on desire and play that mandolin

Mmmm this chance won't come again

Before you were born you had it all

All the lovin which is in the world

Before you were born you'd fly along the wind

Then you were born and now you want it all back again

And now you want it all back again

And now you want it all back again...

You're not the only one

who thinks they're the only one

to feel this numb, in spite of the

distance you've come.

Light comes in through the eyes,

(It's) something that you recognize,

but you've ignored, cause nobody

told you what to ask for.

The heart is a wilderness

with beauty and emptiness

that you endure, cause you

never can be sure.

...and it rolls and it tumbles forward,

and it pushes the envelope,

'cause it's nowhere and everywhere,

and it's breaking your heart to watch it.

In case you're the only one--

nobody else's child,

stay here you're mine, there's gotta be

something you can find here.

It hurt so you took it out.

You're gonna work it out.

No invisibile line could possibly define...

..and it's hiding up there in the corner,

like a child you're in need of protection,

and it keeps you as long as you let it,

and it holds you 'til it's all you are,

and it pushes the envelope,

'til it freezes your need to reconnect,

and you've grown to depend uupon it,

and it's breaking your heart to watch it go.

Yer gonna have t'sit there and drink yer cup of muddy water

Yer gonna have t'let the blood dry on yer hands

Ask yer mama t'knit you a blanket from Esau's thigh

Cause yer gonna have t'learn t'be lowly and wise

And you can't tell me it sits alright with you

Gangsta lean gansta lean you done killed them all

Gangsta lean gangsta lean you done killed them

You got Beelzebub in yer little toe,you got death on yer dry tung

You got to live alone you got to pray alone

Just like the people bone that you shatter

and you can't tell me it doesnít bother you

Gangsta lean gangsta lean you done killed them all

Gangsta lean gangsta lean you done killed them

Yer life's a melody and yer life's a rhapsody

possessing the dark skin with romance

It's not a mystery when you know the history

Of east coast and west coast killa's

And you can't tell me it doesn't bother you

Gangsta lean gangsta lean you done killed them all

Gangsta lean gangsta lean you done killed them

[color:"green"]Portland, Oregon

Land of the green

At least that’s what I learned

Chillin’ out on that scene

Spent some time out West

And gained me some knowledge

‘Bout pot and the police

As I went off to college

Just some broke-ass kid

From way down South

Didn’t have me no money

To go and put where my mouth was

Because

Ya, you know the situation

Kids around the nation

Got the same explanation

They wanna be down

With the green and the sticky

But without no money

It’s just a little bit tricky

But if you’ve got you some savvy

You can hook up your buddies

And gain some extra cash

As you pursue your studies

Hence forms the title

‘Bout the rhyme that we’re bringin’

Just a little song

About collegiate dope slingin’

You’ll piss off your folks

As we do this chant

But everybody tokes

As we say our rant,

Which is…

(Chorus:)

School is for the rich kids

They don’t wanna meet the townies

So they’re bringin’ us the dough

And we are bakin’ up the brownies

(x2)

I know what you’re thinkin’

Another sad story

Brothers gettin’ busted

Sellin’ drugs in the dormitory

Tryin’ to do right

But mostly doin’ wrong

A knock on the door;

“Damn, hide the bong!”

“Who is it?”

“Campus police!”

Oh, good grief.

But see I’m chillin’

‘Cause I already hid the damn herb in the ceilin’

So, I’m like, “Come right on in;

Search the damn room”

‘Cause as soon as you leave

I will resume

Sellin’ herb to the kids down the hall,

My English professor,

And the dumbasses

On the basketball team

Tryin’ to take it to the floor

With their loud parties

And basketball bouncin’

While right next door I’m slingin’ ounces

Stupid mickey pickings!

You know what I mean?

They’re like, “Front me a sack” “Alright,

Pay me back soon or you’ll be dead like the Flavour Kings

Though we been through a lot

Through thick and thin

Man, I’m your dope slinga

I can’t be your friend!”

Chorus

I’m sippin’ espressos

At the coffee shop

While I’m slingin’ America’s

Favourite cash crop

Then I’m up all night

Workin’ hard

Gettin’ baked with all of the

Security guards, and

Blunt in my mouth

Herb in my pocket

Gimme the micro-

Phone, so I can rock it

Rip it

Very gifted

When I’m lifted

On the green

On that scene

I’m a fiend

Sellin’ chronic to the Dean

Urban, green weed,

‘Shrooms, and bromomescaline

Like Smilin’ Lewis I got you all ready

For one night of sin

You wanna give me an “F”

Well, that’s a joke

‘Cause if you fail me

Then what the hell would you smoke?

Yaaaaah, lookin’ back on it now

You know it ain’t funny

But I never called up my Dad

Beggin’ him for money

New jacket, new shoes

I buy what I see

And you know the best part is

That it’s all tax free!

Chorus

Repeat and fade...

Saw Loco Eddie out on the waves

Holding a sign that said 'Jesus Saves'

Carrying on about some crises

But Como Kolodi looked away

She was married to the day

She being of the sturgeon clan

All they said, was free your head,

Life is holding you fast

Born of this surmon, it may be your last

You know I've known you, for centuries

Maybe your diamonds are from the mind

Maybe you are jealous and behind

Maybe your diamond lady eyes have robbed you blind

But your shyness, and your kindness, liberate your silence, hold you in

But don't forget, what Libra said

Light is pouring in through

Bound to this highway I ride, clear through

And tell a brave tale like yours,

The motion of life on the ocean floor

Soon forget, and gaze ...

Alsoa, Alsoa, Alsoa, Alsoa, Alsoa

Saw Loco Eddie out on the waves

Holding a sign that said 'Jesus Saves'

Carrying on about some crises

When morning came, you're still the same

And why, oh why?

I guess this engine ain't ready to fly

You know I've known you...

I Like Drinking to forget your name

And I smoke reefer a'do much the same

Between me and you - there's ain't nothing I wouldn't do

to untangle these ties with you

How much sweet life source have you took

I keep thinking I'd rather not look

Our love's like a fern thats been dried up and burned

It's absurd - but I keep coming back.

Oh believe me bruther

I bleeve I'd ruther

dig a hole and crawl in the ground

Between you and I

I think I'd ruther die

So I'll just stay drunk all the time

I've been over and over this girl

But you like the rattle snakes curl

You coil to strike me again

In my wide world of sin

lights out I think its the end

have mercy on me Jesus Christ

I love my dog as much as I love you t505601.gif

But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

All he asks from me is the food to give him strength

All he ever needs is love and that he knows he’ll get

So, I love my dog as much as I love you

But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

All the pay I need comes shining through his eyes

I don’t need no cold water to make me realize that

I love my dog as much as I love you

But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

I love my dog as much as I love you

But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

I love my dog, baby, I love my dog. na, na, na...

I love my dog, baby, I love my dog. na, na, na...

Dear God, hope you got the letter, and...

I pray you can make it better down here.

I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer

but all the people that you made in your image,

see them starving on their feet

'cause they don't get enough to eat

from God, I can't believe in you

Dear God, sorry to disturb you, but...

I feel that I should be heard loud and clear.

We all need a big reduction in the amount of tears

and all the people that you made in your image,

see them fighting in the street

'cause they can't make opinions meet

about God, I can't believe in you

Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?

Did you make mankind after we made you?

And the devil too!

Dear God, don't know if you noticed, but...

your name is on a lot of quotes in this book,

and us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look,

and all the people that you made in your image

still believing that junk is true.

Well I know it ain't, and so do you,

dear God, I can't believe in I don't believe in

I won't believe in heaven and hell.

No saints, no sinners, no devil as well.

No pearly gates, no thorny crown.

You're always letting us humans down.

The wars you bring, the babes you drown.

Those lost at sea and never found,

and it's the same the whole world 'round.

The hurt I see helps to compound

that Father, Son and Holy Ghost

is just somebody's unholy hoax,

and if you're up there you'd perceive

that my heart's here upon my sleeve.

If there's one thing I don't believe in

it's you...

Dear God

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

When the blazing sun is gone,

When he nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

Then the trav'ler in the dark

Thanks you for your tiny spark;

How could he see where to go,

If you did not twinkle so?

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

In the dark blue sky you keep, and

Through my curtains often peep,

For you never shut your eyes,

Till the morning sun does rise.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

As your bright and tiny spark

Lights the trav'ler in the dark,

Though I know not what you are,

Twinkle on, please, little star.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

It was back in '32 when times were hard

He had a Colt .45 and a deck of cards

Stagger Lee

He wore rat-drawn shoes and an old stetson hat

Had a '28 Ford, had payments on that

Stagger Lee

His woman threw him out in the ice and snow

And told him, 'Never ever come back no more'

Stagger Lee

So he walked through the rain and he walked through the mud

Till he came to a place called The Bucket Of Blood

Stagger Lee

He said 'Mr motherfu©ker, you know who I am'

The barkeeper said, 'No, and I don't give a good goddamn'

To Stagger Lee

He said, 'Well bartender, it's plain to see

I'm that bad motherfu©ker called Stagger Lee'

Mr. Stagger Lee

Barkeep said, 'Yeah, I've heard your name down the way

And I kick motherfu©king asses like you every day'

Mr Stagger Lee

Well those were the last words that the barkeep said

'Cause Stag put four holes in his motherfu©king head

Just then in came a broad called Nellie Brown

Was known to make more money than any bitch in town

She struts across the bar, hitching up her skirt

Over to Stagger Lee, she starts to flirt

With Stagger Lee

She saw the barkeep, said, 'O God, he can't be dead!'

Stag said, 'Well, just count the holes in the motherfu©ker's head'

She said, 'You ain't look like you scored in quite a time.

Why not come to my pad It won't cost you a dime'

Mr. Stagger Lee

'But there's something I have to say before you begin

You'll have to be gone before my man Billy Dilly comes in,

Mr. Stagger Lee'

'I'll stay here till Billy comes in, till time comes to pass

And furthermore I'll fu©k Billy in his motherfu©king ass'

Said Stagger Lee

'I'm a bad motherfu©ker, don't you know

And I'll crawl over fifty good pussies just to get one fat boy's a$$hole'

Said Stagger Lee

Just then Billy Dilly rolls in and he says, 'You must be

That bad motherfu©ker called Stagger Lee'

Stagger Lee

'Yeah, I'm Stagger Lee and you better get down on your knees

And suck my dick, because If you don't you're gonna be dead'

Said Stagger Lee

Billy dropped down and slobbered on his head

And Stag filled him full of lead

Oh yeah.

I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea

Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me.

I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man

Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand.

When I’m standing next to you

There’s a song to sing

I know everything’s feeling right

When I’m standing next to you

Steeple bells ring

Only good things

Do I see

When you’re next to me

When I hold your hand in mine

Different world wakes

A new morning breaks with the sun

When I hold your hand in mine

Children's dreams take flight

Through a star lit night

That’s what I see

When you’re next to me

This love for you I’m feeling

Has a power that is healing

It can mend the darkest hour

With glorious light

When I taste your lips so sweet

I see beggars dine

And the sands of time up and stop

When I taste your lips so sweet

Black and white bend

Every dove lands at your feet

When you’re next to me

This love for you I’m feeling

Has a power that is healing

It can mend the darkest hour

With glorious light

When I’m lying next to you

I feel moonbeams burn

I see rainbows turning to gold

When I’m lying next to you

I hear angels play

I see sweeter days

I see rivers wind

Through the end of time

I see hatred fall

From the highest hill

I see God’s good grace

Shining in your eyes

That’s what I see

When you’re next to me

I want to live, I want to give

I've been a miner for a heart of gold

It's these expressions I never give

That keep me searching for a heart of gold

And I'm getting old

Keeps me searching for a heart of gold

And I'm getting old

I've been to Hollywood, I've been to Redwood

I cross the ocean for a heart of gold

I've been in my mind, it's such a fine line

That keeps me searching for a heart of gold

And I'm getting old

Keeps me searching for a heart of gold

You keep me searching for a heart of gold

And I'm getting old

Keep me searching for a heart of gold

You keep me searching for a heart of gold

And I'm getting old

I've been a miner for a heart of gold.

...sigh....Neil Young is gold!

Stay gold Ponyboy! Stay Gold!
