Star o' the bar....by the great Davie Robe'son

Oh I'll sing ye's a stave if ye'll gie yer attention
It's nae sang o' pity it's nae tale o' woe
And nae word o' honour or love will I mention
But I'll sing o' a lassie I kent long ago

cho: Nae better than maist, and nae worse as mony
    And what drew me tae her 's no easy tae say
    She was coorse, she was heartless and she wasnae that bonnie
    But she was the star o' the bar in her day

I've stravaiged the Royal Mile wi' her, drinkin' in style wi' her
And Rose Street frae end tae end often surveyed
Focht and swore in the pubs wi' her
Rolled in the dubs wi' her, cadged mony subs frae her never repaid

A' ye chaps wi' young lassies believe me love soon passes
And a' yer bricht dreams is but straes in the wind
Better yin whae'll sit doon wi' ye, sing a fine tune wi' ye
Pass the gless roond wi' ye, drink hersel blind

"H-A-T-R-E-D" by Tonio K. is about as bitter as kiss-off songs get.

Of course the part where he says:

"...Yes I wish I was as mellow
As, for instance Jackson Browne,
But "Fountain Of Sorrow, my ass, @#$%^&*)+=,
I hope you wind up in the ground..."

...was written well before Jackson allegedly attacked the "500 Foot Woman" and lost a bit of credibility.....

It Ain't Me, Babe
B.Dylan

Go 'way from my window,
Leave at your own chosen speed.
I'm not the one you want, babe,
I'm not the one you need.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Never weak but always strong,
To protect you an' defend you
Whether you are right or wrong,
Someone to open each and every door,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go lightly from the ledge, babe,
Go lightly on the ground.
I'm not the one you want, babe,
I will only let you down.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who will promise never to part,
Someone to close his eyes for you,
Someone to close his heart,
Someone who will die for you an' more,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go melt back into the night, babe,
Everything inside is made of stone.
There's nothing in here moving
An' anyway I'm not alone.
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall,
To gather flowers constantly
An' to come each time you call,
A lover for your life an' nothing more,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Whoops!

Sorry for the typo Darryl Hannah only played a 50 foot woman in the remake of "Attack Of The...". I must have been thinking of the classic movie poster from the 1950s original, where the woman looked taller than 50 feet.

Bastard

How could I give my heart to a bastard like that ?
Please, Mr Bastard, can I have my heart back ?
Too much fiction and not enough fact.
Well love isn't blind but it can't see around corners.

How could I give my money to a bastard like that ?
Please, Mr Bastard, can I have my money back ?
I didn't pay for all of that crap.
Well love isn't blind but it's got the wrong glasses on.

I tried to live in an innocent haze,
Away from the blues and the low down days.
But gone are the highs and the passionate sighs,
When there's too many lies, well true love dies, dies, dies.

How could I give my time to a bastard like that ?
Please, Mr Bastard, can I have my time back ?
I didn't want to spend it like that,
Well, love isn't blind but I think it's got dyslexia.
Love isn't blind but it's got the wrong glasses on.
Love isn't blind but it can't see around corners.

Love, Love, Love, Love, Love, Love, Love.
Money, Money, Money, Money, Money, Money, Money.
Bastard, Bastard, Bastard, Bastard, Bastard, Bastard, Bastard !

Love isn't blind but it can't see around corners.

I can't believe no one's posted this...

"One More Minute," by Weird Al Yankovic. The ULTIMATE Anti-Valentine's day song!

(Grab: "One" by U2 was, at least according to Bono, actually about a son having to tell his judgmental father that he had contracted AIDS.)

Heard George Gobel sing this on the old Tonight Show
Only John Denver has been desparate enough to record it tho.

You Stomped Upon My Heart

I told you that I loved you
You said that is so good
I called you my darlin?
I thought I always would
But now you've gone and left me
I don't know what to do
So my little darlin'
I write these words to you

You dun stomped on my heart
And you mashed that sucker flat
You just sortta stepped on my aorta
You started going out with guys
I felt us drift apart
And every step you took
Was a stomp upon my heart


I only hope that someday you get
Them low down blues
In some smokey honky tonk
You looked down at your shoes
You'll think about that tender heart
That you crushed beneath them soles
With your clod bustin' stompers
You left my heart so full of holes

CROCK OF SHIT



I've been married forty years,

Shared my hopes and shared my tears.

All I earned, spent every bit.

Man, this love's a crock of shit.



I sent all my kids to school.

Now they think that I'm a fool.

They don't like me 'cause I spit.

Man, this love's a crock of shit.



I come home, most every night,

Me 'n' my wife, we have a fight.

My wife always was a wit.

Man, this love's a crock of shit.



Young man, if you've never wed,

Listen close to what I've said.

You've got freedom in your mitt.

Man, this love's a crock of shit.

"You're No Good" by Betty Everett
(later by both Linda Ronstadt and Van Halen)


I also sing it with a third verse I wrote for it:

        I musta been blind or crazy; but that's all over now
        I gotta get my baby to forgive me somehow
        cause if she'll take back my heart, then we can start anew
        but even if she won't, I still don't want you

Alake! sae sweet a tree as love,

Sic bitter fruit should bear!

Alake, that e'er a merry a--e,

Should draw a sa'tty tear.

    An' wha'll m-w me now, my jo,

      An' wha'll m-w me now:

    A sodger wi' his bandileers

      Has bang'd my belly fu'.



But deevil damn the lousy loun,

Denies the bairn he got!

Or lea's the merry a--e he lo'ed

To wear a ragged coat!

    An' wha'll, &c.
