I dunno - some of those titles sound more like torch songs torch songs. Try these... --------------------------------------- Composer and Lyricist: Rodgers And Hammerstein
South Pacific (Musical)
Song: Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair

Nellie:
I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
And send him on his way.

I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms,
Nellie and Girls:
I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms,
I'm gonna wave that man right outa my arms,
And send him on his way.

Don't try to patch it up
Girls:
Tear it up, tear it up!
Nellie:
Wash him out, dry him out,

Girls:
Push him out, fly him out,

Nellie:
Cancel him and let him go!

Girls:
Yea, sister!

Nellie:
I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair,

I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair,
And send him on his way.

If a man don't understand you,
If you fly on separate beams,
Waste no time, make a change,
Ride that man right off your range.
Rub him out of the roll call
And drum him out of your dreams.

Girls:
Oho! If you laugh at different comics,
If you root for different teams,
Waste no time, weep no more,
Show him what the door is for.
Rub him out of the roll call
And drum him out of your dreams.

Nellie:
You can't light a fire when the woods are wet,

Girls:
No!

Nellie:
You can't make a butterfly strong,

Girls:
Hmm, hmm!

Nellie:
You can't fix an egg when it ain't quite good,

Girls:
And you can't fix a man when he's wrong!

Nellie:
You can't put back a petal when it falls from a flower,
Or sweeten up a fellow when he starts turnin' sour

Girls:
Oh no! Oh no!

Nellie and Girls:
If his eyes get dull and fishy,
When you look for glints and gleams,
Waste no time,
Make a switch,
Drop him in the nearest ditch!
Rub him out of the roll call,
And drum him out of your dreams
Oho! Oho!

Nellie:
I went to wash that man right outa my hair,
I went to wash that man right outa my hair,
I went to wash that man right outa my hair,
And sent him on his way.

Girls:
She went to wash that man right outa my hair,
She went to wash that man right outa my hair,
She went to wash that man right outa my hair,

Nellie and Girls:
And send him on his way!

"Get Out of My House" from album "The Dreaming", written by Kate Bush See lyrics at http://gaffa.org/sensual/l_goomh.html - It's rather dark though.

Other Kate tunes, all from "The Sensual World":
"Between a Man and a Woman"
"Walk Straight Down the Middle"
"Never Be Mine"

This next one could mean that he's lost interest in her, or that she's dead and is a ghost wandering through the house. I love that ambiguity typical of Kate's work:

"Watching You Without Me" from The Ninth Wave (Hounds of Love)
You can't hear me.
You can't hear me.
You can't hear what I'm saying.
You can't hear what I'm saying to you.

You watch the clock
Move the slow hand.
I should have been home
Hours ago,
But I'm not here.
But I'm not here.

You can't hear me.
You can't hear me.
You can't feel me
Here in the room with you now.
You can't hear what I'm saying.
You don't hear what I'm saying, do you?

Can't let you know
What's been happening.
There's a ghost in our home,
Just watching you without me.
I'm not here.

SHE CRIED - Jay and the Americans
G. Richards / T. Daryll)

And when I told her
I didn't love her anymore
She cried (she cried)
And when I told her
Her kisses were not like before
She cried (she cried)
I thought that our romance was over and done
But to her it had just begun

And when I told her
Another girl had caught my eye
She cried (she cried)
And when I kissed her
A kiss that only meant goodbye
She cried (she cried)

------ strings ------

(sha-la-la-la sha-la-la)

And when I told her
I didn't love her anymore
She cried (she cried) --------------------------
