Lyrics of Beulah - Ballad of the Lonely Argonaut

Ballad Of The Lonely Argonaut

Half by sea
Through the isthmus o'er the cape they're rounding

Over land
Follow the shallow ribbon of the platte
An El Dorado waits
Like an avalanche
And the boys are off to see
The elephant

How does it feel
To roam this land like Hart and Twain did?
How, how does it feel?
A thousand miles closer to hell

Over land
They pass God's bluff and cross the basin
Half by sea
They follow the coast and through the gate where

Gold is coated with gold
On the languid hills
Where they wait for hours and hours
Cool gray ladies from shirley's learn us cheer
And they sat for hours and hours



The luck of the roaring camp
And how they taught the outcasts of the flats
In their poker face

Cannot hide the fever of
The children's crusade
Slow, slower than slow
Days spill into one another

Gold is coated with gold
On the languid hills
Where they wait for hours and hours
Cool gray ladies from shirley's [?] cheer
And they sat for hours and hours

Lyrics of Lorien - Ballad Of The Knigth

Ballad Of The Knight

I feel cold when i'm next to you
i can't hear the freedom call
my spirit is living far from here
you are tying me to this life.
I don't know,
what is freezing now my heart
far away,
from the crowd i can survive!
I believe is all those things
that makes me dream
i am steering my own course
i'm at the wheel.
Next to the fire
i like thinking on my deeds
overcoming fear to
carry out my destiny.
[chorus]
i sing this ballad
because i'm one of the knights
who has escaped
from the chains of this dark world!
It's a misty day today
your eyes can't see
you are falling into a trap
from which i've escaped.
I'm getting stronger
when the wind blows through my hair
whispering the right way to
keep on my own path.

Lyrics of Ballad of Illinois Opry

Ballad Of The Illinois Opry

Found myself heading down toward Springfield
The last sign said it was twelve miles west
It's gettin' hard to see through the salt on my windshield
But it looks like I'm gonna make it before the sun sets

The morning I arrived was Lincoln's birthday
So I walked through his house and saw his tomb
I decided that a tour through the Civil War Memorial Museum would be a drag
I was tired of seeing monuments about other men's doom

Now I don't want you people to think that all there is around Springfield Illinois
Are landmarks telling 'bout the good old Lincoln years
'Cause just north of town I saw a sign that said the Illinois Opry is open tonight
And the sweet sound of country music filled my ears



And I want to be a star in the Illinois Opry now
The people in the country certainly know how to play
It may be a while before I'm ready
But I'm gonna be up on that stage someday

I could easily write a whole song about the licks that guitar man was pickin'
I could go on for hours 'bout the old boy on pedal steel
But I'm not singing 'bout people who were just playin' music
I'm singing about how fine their music made me feel

There's a lot of people who have taken years of lessons
Trying to learn how to make their music fit the trend
But the simple folks at the Opry have got somethin' special
And I think that we all could use a lesson or two from them

And I want to be a star in the Illinois Opry now
The people in the country certainly know how to play
It maybe a while before I'm ready
But I'm gonna be up on that stage someday

Lyrics of Ballad of the Green Berets - [HD] - - - SSGT Barry SADLER

Ballad Of The Green Berets

Fighting soldiers from the sky
fearless men who jump and die
men who mean just what they say
the brave men of the green beret
Chorus:
silver wings upon their chest
these are men, america's best
one hundred men will test today
but only three win the green beret
Trained to live off nature's land
trained in combat, hand-to-hand
men who fight by night and day
courage peak from the green berets
Chorus
Back at home a young wife waits
her green beret has met his fate
he has died for those oppressed
leaving her his last request
“put silver wings on my son's chest
make him one of america's best
he'll be a man they'll test one day
have him win the green beret”

Lyrics of Ballad Of Spider John

Ballad Of Spider John

Spider John is my name friend
I'm in between freights and I sure would be obliged
If you'd share your company
I know this may sound strange to you
But if you wait 'til the song is sung and the story's told
You might come to understand
Why I'm old and bent and devil's been runnin' out of time
When I long ago held a royal flush in my hand.

Oh, I was a super market fool, I was a roll-the-bank, a
stool pigeon,
Robbing my hometown
I thought I'd lost the blues, yes, I thought I'd paid my dues
I thought I'd found the life to suit my style

But here I sit ol' Spider John
The robber man
Long, tall and handsome
Yes, ol' Spider John with the loaded hand
Taking ransom



Then one day I met Diamond Lil
She was the sweetest thing, I declare,
That the summer breeze ever blown my way
But, lady, she had no idea my illustrious occupation
She thought I was a saint, not a sinner gone astray
But you see that word got around and Lily left town
Never saw her again
Tossin' and turnin', causin' my heart to grieve

Oh, I was a super market fool, I was roll-the-bank, stool pigeon
Robbing my hometown.
I thought I'd lost my blues, thought I'd paid my dues
I thought I'd found the life to suit my style.
But here I sit ol' Spider John,
The robber man
Long, tall and handsome
Yes, ol' Spider John with the loaded hand
Taking ransom

That is all my story
Been these thirty years since I took to the road
Find my precious jewel one
If you see my Lily, won't you give her my regards
Tell her ol' Spider got tangled
In the black web that he spun

You can tell her that ol' Spider got tangled
In the black web that he spun

Lyrics of Crash Test Dummies - The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead (Official Video) ft. Ellen Reid

Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead

Peter pumpkinhead came to town
Spreading wisdom and cash around
Fed the starving and housed the poor
Showed the vatican what gold's for

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Hooray for peter pumpkin
Who'll pray for peter pumpkinhead?


Peter pumpkinhead brought to shame
Governments who would slur his name
Lusts and sex scandals failed outright
Peter merely said, "any kind of love is all right"


But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Hooray for peter pumpkin
Who'll pray for peter pumpkinhead?

Peter pumpkinhead was too good
Had him nailed to a chunk of wood
He died grinning on live tv
Hanging there he looked a lot like you, and an awful lot like me!

But he made too many enemies
Of the people who would keep us on our knees
Hooray for peter pumpkin
Who'll pray for peter pumpkinhead?
Hooray for peter pumpkin
Who'll pray for peter pumpkin?
Hooray for peter pumpkinhead
Oh my, oh my, don't it make you want to cry, oh

Lyrics of Johnny Western - Ballad of Paladin Have Gun Will Travel

Ballad Of Paladin (have Gun-will Travel)

Have gun, will travel reads the card of a man,
a knight without aror in a savage land.
his fast gun for hire, heeds the calling wind,
a soldier of fortune is the man called paladin.
paladin, paladin, where do you roam?
paladin, paladin, far, far, from home.
He travels on to wherever he must:
a chess knight of silver is his badge of trust.
there are campfire legends that the plainsmen spin
of the man with the gun, of the man called pa-l-l-l-l-a-din.
paladin, paladin, where do you roam?
paladin, paladin, far, far, from home.

Lyrics of Marianne Faithfull -- The Ballad Of Lucy Jordan HD

Ballad Of Lucy Jordan

The morning sun touched lightly on
the eyes of lucy jordan
in a white suburban bedroom
in a white suburban town
And she lay there neath the covers
dreaming of a thousand lovers
til the world turned to orange
and the room went spinning round
At the age of 37
she realized she'd never ride
through paris in a sports car
with the warm wind in her hair
so she let the phone keep ringing
as she sat there softly singing
pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized
in her daddy's easy chair
Her husband he's off to work
and the kids are off to school
and there were oh so many ways
for her to spend her days
She could clean the house for hours
or rearrange the flowers
or run naked through the shady street
screaming all the way
At the age of 37
she realized she'd never ride
through paris in a sports car
with the warm wind in her hair
so she let the phone keep ringing
as she sat there softly singing
pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized
in her daddy's easy chair
The evening sun touched gently on
the eyes of lucy jordan
on the rooftop where she climbed
when all the laughter grew too loud
And she bowed and curtsied to the man
who reached and offered her his hand
and he led her down to the long white car
that waited past the crowd
At the age of 37
she knew she'd found forever
as she rode along through paris
with the warm wind in her hair

Lyrics of Johnny Cash The Ballad of Ira Hayes

Ballad Of Ira Hayes

Ira Hayes,
Ira Hayes

Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won't answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

Gather round me people there's a story I would tell
About a brave young Indian you should remember well
From the land of the Pima Indian
A proud and noble band
Who farmed the Phoenix valley
In Arizona land

Down the ditches for a thousand years
The water grew Ira's peoples' crops
'Till the white man stole the water rights
And the sparkin' water stopped

Now Ira's folks were hungry
And their land grew crops of weeds
When war came, Ira volunteered
And forgot the white man's greed



Call him drunkin' Ira Hayes
He won't answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

They battled up Iwo Jima's hill
Two hundred and fifty men
But only twenty-seven lived to walk back down again

And when the fight was over
And when Old Glory raised
among the men who held it high
Was the Indian, Ira Hayes

Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won't answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

Ira returned a hero
Celebrated through the land
He was wined and speeched and honored;
Everybody shook his hand

But he was just a Pima Indian
No water, no crops, no chance
At home nobody cared what Ira'd done
And when do the Indians dance

Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won't answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war



Then Ira started drinkin hard;
Jail was often his home
They'd let him raise the flag and lower it
Like you'd throw a dog a bone!

He died early drunk one mornin'
Alone in the land he fought to save
Two inches of water in a lonely ditch
Was the grave for Ira Hayes

Call him drunken Ira Hayes
He won't answer anymore
Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian
Nor the Marine that went to war

Yeah, call him drunken Ira Hayes
But his land is just as dry
And his ghost is lyin' thirsty
In the ditch where Ira died

Lyrics of Ballad of Hollis Brown

Ballad Of Hollis Brown

Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
With his wife and five children
And his cabin fallin' down

You looked for work and money
And you walked a ragged mile
You looked for work and money
And you walked a ragged mile
Your children are so hungry
That they don't know how to smile

Your baby's eyes look crazy
They're a-tuggin' at your sleeve
Your baby's eyes look crazy
They're a-tuggin' at your sleeve
You walk the floor and wonder why
With every breath you breathe

The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
If there's anyone that knows
Is there anyone that cares?



You prayed to the Lord above
Oh, please send you a friend
You prayed to the Lord above
Oh, please send you a friend
Your empty pockets tell ya
That you ain't a-got no friend

Your babies are crying louder
It's pounding on your brain
Your babies are crying louder
It's pounding on your brain
Your wife's screams are stabbin' you
Like the dirty drivin' rain

Your grass it is turning black
There's no water in your well
Your grass is turning black
There's no water in your well
You spent your last lone dollar
On seven shotgun shells

Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That's hangin' on the wall

Your brain is a-bleedin'
And your legs can't seem to stand
Your brain is a-bleedin'
And your legs can't seem to stand
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That you're holdin' in your hand



There's seven breezes a-blowin'
All around the cabin door
There's seven breezes a-blowin'
All around the cabin door
Seven shots ring out
Like the ocean's pounding roar

There's seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
There's seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
Somewheres in the distance
There's seven new people born

Lyrics of Hank Williams Jr. ~ Ballad Of Hank Williams

Ballad Of Hank Williams

Well in 1950 i took a little nip
along with mr. williams on the
way to mississipp'
we was stacked 8 deep in a packard limousine
and we met this promoter in the town of new orleans
now the man told daddy that he had what it took
and he liked the way he sang
and he liked the way he shook
he said pretty soon he'd make us all rich
and we started believin'
that fat son of a bitch
now the man told daddy if you wanna make some dough
take a little money and book me on a show
and we played them dates and we filled the places well
but hank, he'd done blowed the profits all to hell
Cause he'd run through a 10 and he'd run through a 20
and he'd run through a 100 just as fast as it would go
like a big dose of sauce to a little bitty fella
he'd spend a $1000 dollars on a $100 dollar show
Hank looked at me with a funny lookin' grin,
said "i've been to the opry and i'm goin' back again"
we met the owner in a little office there
and a big fat fella with some artificial hair
he told hank he wanted half of everything he made
or he'd have to tell audrey 'bout
some women hank had laid
and you told daddy he'd better get smart,
get rid of them fellas and make a new start
So he fired my ass and he fired jerry rivers
and he fired everybody just as hard as he could go
he fired old cedric and he fired sammy pruitt
and he fired some people that he didn't even know
Well, every song he made it went to number one,
y'all was workin' like hell and you was havin' fun
we was ridin' every day and playin' every night
and every 20 minutes some of us had a fight
now, daddy he was makin' money hand over fist,
and y'all was getting' screwed but
you wasn't getting kissed
yeah, i told him to pass a little bit around
but he said he'd rather send it
to his folks in alabam'
So he fired my ass and he fired jerry rivers
and he fired everybody just as hard as he could go
he fired old cedric and he fired sammy pruitt
and he fired some people that he didn't even know
Now the owner of the opry, he's a-doin' pretty good,
he's got a music company that they call cedarwood
and hank played nothing but sold out halls
and i was pumpin' gas in greasy overalls
Cause he'd run through a 10 and he'd run through a 20
and he'd run through a 100 just as fast as it would go
like a big dose of sauce to a little bitty fella
he'd spend a $1000 dollars on a $100 dollar show

Lyrics of Sandy Denny - The Ballad Of The Easy Rider

Ballad Of Easy Rider

The river flows, it flows to the sea
Wherever that river goes that's where I want to be
Flow river flow, let your waters wash down
Take me from this road to some other town

All he wanted was to be free
And that's the way it turned out to be
Flow river flow, let your waters wash down
Take me from this road to some other town

Flow river flow, past the shady trees
Go river go, go to the sea
Flow to the sea

The river flows, it flows to the sea
Wherever it goes that's where I want to be
Flow river flow, let your waters wash down
Take me from this road to some other town

Lyrics of Alice Cooper - Ballad of Dwight Fry (Live from Alice Cooper: Trashes The World)

Ballad Of Dwight Fry

Mommy, where's daddy?
He's been gone for so long
Do you think he'll ever come home?

I was gone for fourteen days
I coulda been gone for more
Held up in the intensive care ward
Lyin' on the floor
I was gone for all those days
But I, was not all alone
I made friends with a lot of people
In the danger zone

See my lonely life unfold
I see it every day
See my lonely mind explode
Since I've gone away

I think I lost some weight there
And I, I'm sure I need some rest
Sleeping don't come very easy
In a straight white vest
Should like to see that little children
She's only four years old, old
I'd give her back all of her play things
Even, even the ones I stole



See my lonely life unfold
I see it everyday
See my lonely mind explode
When I've gone insane

I, I want to get out of here
I, I want to get out of here
I, I've gotta, I've gotta get out of here
I, I gotta get out of here
I, I gotta get out of here
I gotta get outta here
I gotta get outta here
I gotta get out of here
Ya gotta let me out of here
Let me outta here
I gotta get out of here
Let me outta here
I gotta get out of here
I gotta get outta here
I gotta get outta here
I gotta get outta here
I gotta get outta here

See my lonely life unfold
I see it everyday
See my lonely mind explode
Blown up in my face

I grabbed my hat and I got my coat
Then I, I ran into the street
I saw a man that was choking there
I guess he couldn't breathe
Said to myself this is very strange
I'm glad it wasn't me
But now I hear those sirens callin'
And so I am not free
I didn't want to be
I didn't want to be
I didn't want to be



See my lonely life unfold
(Leave me alone)
(I didn't want to be)
(Don't touch me)
See my lonely mind explode
When I've gone insane

Lyrics of Tennessee Ernie Ford: The Ballad Of Davy Crockett

Ballad Of Davy Crockett

Born on a mountain top in tennessee
greenest state in the land of the free
raised in the woods so he knew ev'ry tree
kilt him a b'ar when he was only three
davy, davy crockett, king of the wild frontier!
In eighteen thirteen the creeks uprose
addin' redskin arrows to the country's woes
now, injun fightin' is somethin' he knows,
so he shoulders his rifle an' off he goes
davy, davy crockett, the man who don't know fear!
Off through the woods he's a marchin' along
makin' up yarns an' a singin' a song
itchin' fer fightin' an' rightin' a wrong
he's ringy as a b'ar an' twict as strong
davy, davy crockett, the buckskin buccaneer!
Andy jackson is our gen'ral's name
his reg'lar soldiers we'll put to shame
them redskin varmints us volunteers'll tame
'cause we got the guns with the sure-fire aim
davy, davy crockett, the champion of us all!~
Headed back to war from the ol' home place
but red stick was leadin' a merry chase
fightin' an' burnin' at a devil's pace
south to the swamps on the florida trace
davy, davy crockett, trackin' the redskins down!
Fought single-handed through the injun war
till the creeks was whipped an' peace was in store
an' while he was handlin' this risky chore
made hisself a legend for evermore
davy, davy crockett, king of the wild frontier!
He give his word an' he give his hand
that his injun friends could keep their land
an' the rest of his life he took the stand
that justice was due every redskin band
davy, davy crockett, holdin' his promise dear!
Home fer the winter with his family
happy as squirrels in the ol' gum tree
bein' the father he wanted to be
close to his boys as the pod an' the pea
davy, davy crockett, holdin' his young'uns dear!
But the ice went out an' the warm winds came
an' the meltin' snow showed tracks of game
an' the flowers of spring filled the woods with flame
an' all of a sudden life got too tame
davy, davy crockett, headin' on west again!
Off through the woods we're ridin' along
makin' up yarns an' singin' a song
he's ringy as a b'ar an' twict as strong
an' knows he's right 'cause he ain' often wrong
davy, davy crockett, the man who don't know fear!
Lookin' fer a place where the air smells clean
where the trees is tall an' the grass is green
where the fish is fat in an untouched stream
an' the teemin' woods is a hunter's dream
davy, davy crockett, lookin' fer paradise!
Now he's lost his love an' his grief was gall
in his heart he wanted to leave it all
an' lose himself in the forests tall
but he answered instead his country's call
davy, davy crockett, beginnin' his campaign!
Needin' his help they didn't vote blind
they put in davy 'cause he was their kind
sent up to nashville the best they could find
a fightin' spirit an' a thinkin' mind
davy, davy crockett, choice of the whole frontier!
The votes were counted an' he won hands down
so they sent him off to washin'ton town
with his best dress suit still his buckskins brown
a livin' legend of growin' renown
davy, davy crockett, the canebrake congressman!
He went off to congress an' served a spell
fixin' up the govern'ments an' laws as well
took over washin'ton so we heered tell
an' patched up the crack in the liberty bell
davy, davy crockett, seein' his duty clear!
Him an' his jokes travelled all through the land
an' his speeches made him friends to beat the band
his politickin' was their favorite brand
an' everyone wanted to shake his hand
davy, davy crockett, helpin' his legend grow!
He knew when he spoke he sounded the knell
of his hopes for white house an' fame as well
but he spoke out strong so hist'ry books tell
an' patched up the crack in the liberty bell
davy, davy crockett, seein' his duty clear!
When he come home his politickin' done
the western march had just begun
so he packed his gear an' his trusty gun
an' lit out grinnin' to follow the sun
davy, davy crockett, leadin' the pioneer!
He heard of houston an' austin so
to the texas plains he jest had to go
where freedom was fightin' another foe
an' they needed him at the alamo
davy, davy crockett, the man who don't know fear!
His land is biggest an' his land is best
from grassy plains to the mountain crest
he's ahead of us all meetin' the test
followin' his legend into the west
davy, davy crockett, king of the wild frontier!

Lyrics of Fess Parker - Ballad of Davy Crockett (1955)

Ballad Of Davy Crockett

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
Greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so he knew ev'ry tree
Kilt him a be\t'are when he was only three
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!

In eighteen thirteen the Creeks uprose
Addin' redskin arrows to the country's woes
Now, Injun fightin' is somethin' he knows,
So he shoulders his rifle an' off he goes
Davy, Davy Crockett, the man who don't know fear!

Off through the woods he's a marchin' along
Makin' up yarns an' a singin' a song
Itchin' fer fightin' an' rightin' a wrong
He's ringy as a be 'are an' twict as strong
Davy, Davy Crockett, the buckskin buccaneer!



Andy Jackson is our gen'ral's name
His reg'lar soldiers we'll put to shame
Them redskin varmints us Volunteers'll tame
'cause we got the guns with the sure-fire aim
Davy, Davy Crockett, the champion of us all!~

Headed back to war from the ol' home place
But Red Stick was leadin' a merry chase
Fightin' an' burnin' at a devil's pace
South to the swamps on the Florida Trace
Davy, Davy Crockett, trackin' the redskins down!

Fought single-handed through the Injun War
Till the Creeks was whipped an' peace was in store
An' while he was handlin' this risky chore
Made hisself a legend for evermore
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!

He give his word an' he give his hand
That his Injun friends could keep their land
An' the rest of his life he took the stand
That justice was due every redskin band
Davy, Davy Crockett, holdin' his promise dear!



Home fer the winter with his family
Happy as squirrels in the ol' gum tree
Bein' the father he wanted to be
Close to his boys as the pod an' the pea
Davy, Davy Crockett, holdin' his young'uns dear!

But the ice went out an' the warm winds came
An' the meltin' snow showed tracks of game
An' the flowers of Spring filled the woods with flame
An' all of a sudden life got too tame
Davy, Davy Crockett, headin' on West again!

Off through the woods we're ridin' along
Makin' up yarns an' singin' a song
He's ringy as a be\t'are an' twict as strong
An' knows he's right 'cause he ain' often wrong
Davy, Davy Crockett, the man who don't know fear!

Lookin' fer a place where the air smells clean
Where the trees is tall an' the grass is green
Where the fish is fat in an untouched stream
An' the teemin' woods is a hunter's dream
Davy, Davy Crockett, lookin' fer Paradise!

Now he's lost his love an' his grief was gall
In his heart he wanted to leave it all
An' lose himself in the forests tall
But he answered instead his country's call
Davy, Davy Crockett, beginnin' his campaign!

Needin' his help they didn't vote blind
They put in Davy 'cause he was their kind
Sent up to Nashville the best they could find
A fightin' spirit an' a thinkin' mind
Davy, Davy Crockett, choice of the whole frontier!

The votes were counted an' he won hands down
So they sent him off to Washin'ton town
With his best dress suit still his buckskins brown
A livin' legend of growin' renown
Davy, Davy Crockett, the Canebrake Congressman!

He went off to Congress an' served a spell
Fixin' up the Govern'ments an' laws as well
Took over Washin'ton so we heered tell
An' patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
Davy, Davy Crockett, seein' his duty clear!

Him an' his jokes travelled all through the land
An' his speeches made him friends to beat the band
His politickin' was their favorite brand
An' everyone wanted to shake his hand
Davy, Davy Crockett, helpin' his legend grow!

He knew when he spoke he sounded the knell
Of his hopes for White House an' fame as well
But he spoke out strong so hist'ry books tell
An' patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
Davy, Davy Crockett, seein' his duty clear!

When he come home his politickin' done
The western march had just begun
So he packed his gear an' his trusty gun
An' lit out grinnin' to follow the sun
Davy, Davy Crockett, leadin' the pioneer!

He heard of Houston an' Austin so
To the Texas plains he jest had to go
Where freedom was fightin' another foe
An' they needed him at the Alamo
Davy, Davy Crockett, the man who don't know fear!

His land is biggest an' his land is best
From grassy plains to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all meetin' the test
Followin' his legend into the West
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!

Lyrics of Cyndi Lauper - Ballad Of Cleo & Joe

Ballad Of Cleo And Joe

Every day the clock kicks off the beat.
little joe struggles just to get up on his feet.
waits in his platforms for the right train to come.
sipping his coffee another day has begun ...
Little joe got work for minimum wage.
tries to get through another dead beat day.
at five o'clock he comes home to change,
takes him many hours just to rearrange...

And he works his body just to be somebody.
there's a woman in the mirror looking like a dream.
and he works his body...
and he feels somebody...
and the working boy becomes a dancing queen.
Every night the dj kicks off the beat.
little cleo's jumping just to get up on her feet.
waits in her platforms for the right song to come.
sipping her cocktail another night has begun.
And he works his body just to be somebody.
there's a woman in the mirror looking like a dream.
and he works his body...
and he feels somebody...
and the working boy becomes a dancing queen.
Every morning the clock kicks off the beat.
little joe struggles just to get up on his feet.
waits in his platforms for the right train to come

Lyrics of Ballad Of Casey Jones by GRATEFUL DEAD

Ballad Of Casey Jones

Casey jones was an old engineer,
call for his family tonight, they will fear,
all i need is my water and coal,
look out the windows, see my drag wheel roll.
one sunday morning in a driving rain,
around the curve came a passenger train,
in the cabin stood casey jones,
bold engineer but he's dead and gone.
Mrs. casey when she heard the news
sitting at her bedside she was lacing up her shoes
children, children now catch your breath,
you will draw a pension if your papa's dead.
children, children now can you hear,
tell me mama what do you mean by that?
get your hat, put it on your head,
go to town, see your daddy's dead,
casey said just before he died,
fix the blinds so that the bums can ride,
if they ride, let them ride rock,
put their trust in the hands of god.
casey said just before he died,
two more roads that i want to ride.
people said, what roads, casey, can they be?
gold colorado and the santa fe.

Lyrics of New Model Army - Ballad Of Bodmin Pill

Ballad Of Bodmin Pill

Smash glass against the wall
Curse the music on the radio that the neighbours play.
Door slams, she turns her head
Watches through the window as he pulls away
Funny how your racing brain drives you so mad
When all the while you feel so numb
Too old to be clean far too young to be broken
Like an army we come

Cut back, left behind
I watched you self-destructing oh so many times
Shot down, once again
Sitting in a chair crying what am I going to do with my life?
Just learn to hide the way that you really feel
Never let them know that you're scared
But understand that you're not the special only one
Watch us now, watch us real close



How we all dance with this fire 'cause it's all that we know
And as the spotlight turns toward us, we all try our best to show
We are lost we are freaks, we are crippled, we are weak
We are the heirs, we are the true heirs, to all the world

Let's go build a fire down on the empty beach when the waves are crashing high
White heat purify, as the sparks fly up into the great black sky
Sacrifice these crutches to the crackling flames
Stand as silhouettes against the dawn
It's far too late to try to sleep now, seems I'm never tired any more

I want to dance with this fire 'cause it's all that I know
We are lost we are freaks
And we try our best to show
I am lost
I'm a freak ha ha.

Lyrics of Primus - The Ballad of Bodacious

Ballad Of Bodacious

Bodacious am a whole lotta' bull
Over nineteen hundred pounds.
He's born in Galry, Oklahoma
And he's the baddest sonsabitch around
If a Burma bull ever were a super star
Then Bodacious just might be.
He's a cream colored, beefy brawn,
Full-fledged, four footed bovine celebrity.
Who's gonna ride Bodacious?
Who's gonna tame him down?
Look out for Bodacious,
He's bound to hold his ground.
Here comes Bodacious,
Ya'll just step aside.
Big and bad Bodacious
Takes a toll from those who ride.
Young Bo met a man named Tuff Hedeman
At the start of his buckin' spree
And Tuff became one of the few to make the whistle
Back in Nineteen Ninety Three.
Tuff tried to ride Bo again at the finals
In Nineteen Ninety Five.
Bodacious had got a little older and wiser
Tuff barely came out alive.

Lyrics of Ballad of Billy Jo McKay

Ballad Of Billy Jo Mckay

My name's Billy Jo Mckay
I just turned sixteen yesterday
I'm gonna get the nerve one day
To get outta here
My ma passed on three years ago, they said
It was cancer and it took her slow
And ever since then I've been
Sayin' no to my daddy and my tears
Now when you come down our road
You gotta watch the bump
Right there across from
The garbage dump
You can find me out back
Jumpin' on the trampoline
And in the springtime
We'll be skippin' school
We sneak off
To the Cantrell's swimming pool
Man, you can't get much cooler
Than me and my friend Darlene
Now my grandaddy's hands are worn
From fifty years of growin' corn
Back behind the house where
I was born before he had to sell
And my cousin Eddie
He got shot in the Walmart parking lot
Yeah this little town's changed a lot
He said it hurt like hell
My name's Billy Jo Mckay
It's a hot Mississippi summer Saturday
Daddy's on the front porch
With uncle Dave drinkin' Dixie beer
Sixteen years of being bored
My window's open, forget the door
Hope there's some gas in the
Old man's Ford 'cause I'm outta here
I'm outta here, I'm outta here
Maybe I'll go down to Biloxi
Or maybe to New Orleans
Or maybe Atlanta

Lyrics of Elliott Smith - Ballad Of Big Nothing (from Either/Or)

Ballad Of Big Nothing

Throwing candy out to the crowd
Dragging down the main
The helpless little thing with the dirty mouth
Who's always got something to say
You're sitting around at home now waiting for your brother to call
I saw him down in the alley
Having had enough of it all
Said you can do what you want to whenever you want to
You can do what you want to there's no one to stop you
All spit and spite you're up all night and down every day
A tired man with only hours to go just waiting to be taken away
Getting in to the back of a car for candy from some stranger
Watching the parade with pinpoint eyes full of smoldering anger
You can do what you want to whenever you want to
You can do what you want to there's no one to stop you
Now you can do what you want to whenever you want to
Do what you want to whenever you want to
Do what you want to whenever you want to
Though it doesn't mean a thing
Big nothing

Lyrics of Baxter - Ballad Of Behaviour

Ballad Of Behaviour

And it seemed
You were on your own
I was sure
But I think I denied it anyway

And it seemed
You were on your own
I was sure
But I think I denied it anyway

It seems that I need you
It seems that I do
It seems I could call you
It seems that I could

And I am so much closer now
I will wait for the right way to tell you what I feel

It seems that I need you
It seems that I do
It seems I could call you
It seems that I could

Wish I could tell you what it's like
I haven't been here in many years
I never thought of you like this
I haven't been here in many years

It seems that I need you
It seems that I do
It seems I could call you
It seems that I could

It seems that I need you
It seems that I do
It seems I could call you
It seems that I could

Lyrics of Ani DiFranco - Dilate

Ballad Of Ani Difranco

Come home and my guitar has nothing to say to me
i've recoiled from all my friends
and then i'm in misery
been so long since i've been held
really, since i was his
probably just need to be held
that probably all it is
Course then i think of my dad
who time travels mostly now
back to when he was free
and holding out hope somehow
who sits all day in a line
of wheelchairs against a wall
inventing ways to play out time
like us all
like us all
To all the people out there tonight
who are comforting themselves
if you should happen to see my light
you can stop and ring my bell
i'm just sittin' here in this sty
strewn with half-written songs
taking one breath at a time
nuthin' much going on
nuthin' much going on
Little flashing zero
on my answering machine
that's scratching at my pain,
brain shuffling his feet
guess i have my father's heart
and it may or may not keep on trying
can't really tell you what it is
keeps me this side of that dark line
But i'm not here to take care of him
and i'm not here to take care of me
i'm going outside to watch the house burn down
across the street
i'm going outside to watch the house burn down
across the street
Come home and my guitar has nothing to say to me
i've recoiled from all my friends
and then i'm in misery
been so long since i've been held
really, since i was his
probably just need to be held
that probably all it is
To all the people out there tonight
who are comforting themselves
if you should happen to see my light
you can stop and ring my bell
i'm just sittin' here in this sty
strewn with half-written songs
taking one breath at a time
nuthin' much going on
nuthin' much going on

Lyrics of Bob Dylan - The Best Of

All Along The Watchtower

"there must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief,
"there's too much confusion, i can't get no relief.
businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
none of them along the line know what any of it is worth."
"no reason to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,
"there are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.
but you and i, we've been through that, and this is not our fate,
so let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late."
All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
while all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.
Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

Lyrics of Bob Dylan - Ballad of a Thin Man (Official Audio)

Ballad Of A Thin Man

You walk into the room with your pencil in your hand
You see somebody naked and you say, who is that man
You try so hard but you don't understand
Just what you gonna say when you get home
Yes, because you know something is happening
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones

You walk in so politely and say, is this where it is
And somebody points to you and says, it's his
And you say, what's mine and somebody else says, well, what is
And he says, oh my God, am I here all alone
Yes, but you know something is happening
You don't know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones

You hand in your money and you go watch the geek
Who suddenly walks up to you when he hears you speak
And says, how does it feel to be such a freak
And you say, impossible as he hands you a bone
Yes, but you know something is happening
Is just that you don't know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones



You have many contacts among the lumberjacks
To get you facts when someone attacks your imagination
Yes, nobody has any respect, anyway they already expect
You to all give a check
To tax-deductible charity organizations

Ah, you've been with the professors and they've all liked your looks
With lawyers and scholars you've discussed lepers and crooks
You've been through all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's books
You're very well-read, it's well-known
Yes, 'cause something is happening
And you don't know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones

The sword swallower, he walks up to you and then he kneels
He crosses himself and then he clicks his high heels
And without further notice, he tells you how it feels
And he says, here is your throat back, thanks for the loan
Yes something is happening but you don't know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones



Now, you see this one-eyed midget shouting the word now
And you say, for what reason and he says, how
And you say, oh my God, what that means
And he screams back, you're a cow
Give me some milk or else go home
Yes, and now you're positive something's happening
And you wish you knew what it was
Don't you, Mr. Jones

You walk into the room like a camel, and then you frown
You put your eyes in your pocket and your nose on the ground
There ought to be a law against you comin' around
You should be made to be wearing at all times a telephone
Yes, 'cause something is happening and you don't know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones

Lyrics of Catherine Wheel - Ballad Of A Running Man

Ballad Of A Running Man

For years i avoided caffeine
for years i was clean
i was calm and complete
then the world fell down round my ears
had a change in my state
bug eyed and awake
I was grinding my teeth in my habitat
i couldn't stand still i was running back
but it was gone
Smack smack smacking my hands
flap flapping my hands
lick licking my wounds
will it help me
rip rip ripping my skin
clip clipping my wings
pick picking my bones
will it help me
hip hip hip to the beat
i can't find my own feet
can't see where i stand
ballad of a running man
jam jam marathon man
For years i was wrapped up in blue
on sunny afternoons
sunbathed but unmoved
on the ground i found me a stooge
he was clear out of school
with a theory to prove
He said he understood so i told him
it was just like i'd read in a magazine
said i thought it was weird to be stumbling
and that it felt like a race i was running in
that's already run
Smack smack smacking my hands
flap flapping my hands
lick licking my wounds
will it help me
rip rip ripping my skin
clip clipping my wings
pick picking my bones
will it help me
hip hip hip to the beat
i can't find my own feet
can't see where i stand
ballad of a running man
jam jam marathon man

Lyrics of The Faint - Ballad of a Paralysed Citizen

Ballad Of A Paralysed Citizen

I'm paralysed and things could change for you as well
You're not so bad off now, you can move anything you need
I'm not this way because of an emergency I caused
At seventeen a guard perched above the chlorine floor
When I saw a hand raise up from just beneath the air
A frantic move for help, I made an instant judgment call

Dive, I arched my feet to dive, I broke the elemental line
To save a child.
Dive, into the shallow floor
The bottom scraped my palms and compressed my spine

Now I'm paralysed while they just hope to make amends
The family and the kid who faked the drowning accident
I've felt the hand of God and that's the last thing I felt
At all below my back, I've lost the faith I thought I had.

Dive, I arched my feet to dive, I broke the elemental line
To save a child.
Dive, into the shallow floor
The bottom scraped my palms and compressed my spine

Lyrics of 2NE1 - 그리워해요(MISSING YOU) M/V

Ballad Of A Lonely Heart

My heart is achin', my head is spinnin'
You're the reason i keep on livin'
Without you my world shatters, my heart breaks, nothin' matters
I just wanna love you, put no one else above you
Nothin i would'nt do, just to....
(chorus)
Love you forever, this ain't no alibi,
Love you forever, no need to ask why
Yes, love you forever, till the stars meet the sun
Love you forever....til my life is done.

I'll give you the sky, don't ask how or why
I'll give you my life, just to hold you near
I'll do anything baby just to hear... you say
You love me like i ... love... you
(chorus)
This may be just another love song
The words you hear are nothing new
But baby, i don't care
I just wanna love you...
Yes....
(chorus to fade)

Lyrics of Adventure Time | Blank Girl | Cartoon Network

Ballad Of A Boy Who Woke Up To A Nightmare

He woke this morning she never told him
he never realized, but now she showed him
the sheets were folded, early that morning
he opened up his eyes, but she was stolen
I do not want to sleep
or have you seperate from me
i want you inside my dreams
that's what she said to me

her mind was sorted
in words she wrote it you'll never realize
you cant afford it
I do not want to sleep. or have you seperate form me
i want you inside my dreams
that's whats she said to me

her empty closet
he walked into it
she won't materialize
he's going through it
I do not want to sleep
or have you seperate from me
i want you inside my dreams
that's what she said to me
I do not want to sleep
i do not want to sleep
i want you, i want you
that's what she said to me

Lyrics of The Black Crowes - Ballad In Urgency / Wiser Time

Ballad In Urgency

Here with me
and this price you pay
just a wishful dream could be blown away
ask yourself for better or worse
because what's the use if it's just good luck
a black cat has crossed my path
tell me what's good luck about that
chorus:
hate and greed
swollen and sweet
let's start this misery
if that's where you wanna be
fear and love
from down or form up above
come to me
come to me
i bet you please
come set me free
excuse me please
for my definition
but deeper still are my convictions
urgently i wait to hear an answer
while i misconduct
a sad lost anthem
an anthem like you have never heard
have you heard something so absurd
chorus

Lyrics of Ballad In Plain D

Ballad In Plain D

I once loved a girl, her skin it was bronze
With the innocence of a lamb, she was gentle like a fawn
I courted her proudly but now she is gone
Gone as the season she's taken

In a young summer's youth, I stole her away
From her mother and sister, though close did they stay
Each one of them suffering from the failures of their day
With strings of guilt they tried hard to guide us

Of the two sisters, I loved the young
With sensitive instincts, she was the creative one
The constant scrapegoat, she was easily undone
By the jealousy of others around her

For her parasite sister, I had no respect
Bound by her boredom, her pride to protect
Countless visions of the other she'd reflect
As a crutch for her scenes and her society



Myself, for what I did, I cannot be excused
The changes I was going through can't even be used
For the lies that I told her in hopes not to lose
The could-be dream-lover of my lifetime

With unseen consciousness, I possessed in my grip
A magnificent mantelpiece, though its heart being chipped
Noticing not that I'd already slipped
To the sin of love's false security

From silhouetted anger to manufactured peace
Answers of emptiness, voice vacancies
'Till the tombstones of damage read me no questions but, \"Please
What's wrong and what's exactly the matter?\"

And so it did happen like it could have been foreseen
The timeless explosion of fantasy's dream
At the peak of the night, the king and the queen
Tumbled all down into pieces



\"The tragic figure!\" her sister did shout
\"Leave her alone, god damn you, get out!\"
And I in my armor, turning about
And nailing her in the ruins of her pettiness

Beneath a bare light bulb the plaster did pound
Her sister and I in a screaming battleground
And she in between, the victim of sound
Soon shattered as a child to the shadows

All is gone, all is gone, admit it, take flight
I gagged in contradiction, tears blinding my sight
My mind it was mangled, I ran into the night
Leaving all of love's ashes behind me

The wind knocks my window, the room it is wet
The words to say I'm sorry, I haven't found yet
I think of her often and hope whoever she's met
Will be fully aware of how precious she is

Ah, my friends from the prison, they ask unto me
\"How good, how good does it feel to be free?\"
And I answer them most mysteriously
\"Are birds free from the chains of the skyway?\"

Lyrics of Ballad In 4/4 - Dream Academy

Ballad In 4/4

I was in love with a married girl
for seven years out of eight
we carried on in secrecy
in shadows i would wait
i learned to love with her other life
i wouldn't let it break us down
'cause she said what she did behind my back
was unimportant when i was around.
one night when the leaves had turned to gold
i sold my love for change
i met a younger single girl
and the balance got rearranged
maybe it helped me to feel less vulnerable
maybe it was just a seven year itch
and i got a job with more money but i
lost the very thing that made me rich
months went by without incident
'though i was living a life of lies
calculated to protect the innocent
but when i saw her she would cry
she begged me to tell her it was all over now
she cried for me to set her free
but i had to hold on to everything
couldn't bear to let her forget about me
oh well the rain was falling down
and so she went away
and i was buoyed up by the praise of sycophants
and the false security of the take home pay
maybe she wrote just to see if i loved her still
maybe she wrote just to say goodbye
but i never saw the words she wrote
only the tears that were in my eyes
one day when the leaves are green again
maybe she'll let me in
we'll sit and talk about everything
just like we were old friends
but i couldn't ever get used to it
no i wouldn't let it break us down
'cause i know what i did behind her back
was unimportant when she was around
unimportant when she was around
unimportant when she was around.

Lyrics of Ballad for Dead Friends - Dashboard Prophets (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Soundtrack)

Ballad For Dead Friends

How are you feeling
Do you feel ok?
Cause I don't
It keeps me reelin'
Will I ever be the same?
No I won't
Its a cold day in a cruel world
I really wished I could have saved you
Then who would save me from myself?
Right now, well, I could use a stiff drink
To kill the pain that's deep inside my bones
Have you been dreaming?
I don't dream at all
I have nightmares
Memories careenin'
Have you come to kill what's left
Of my smile
There's no vacancy in paradise
I really wished I could have saved you
Then who would have saved me from myself
Right now, well, I could use a stiff drink
To kill the pain that's deep inside my bones
I really wished I could have saved you
Then who would have saved me from myself
I'll never forget you [Repeat x4]
I really wished I could have saved you [Repeat x4]

Lyrics of NEW MODEL ARMY - Ballad 2

Ballad 2

Crackle in the lines so far away, the late night dj starts to play
that sacred song goes phasing through the airwaves of the night
beyond the lonely light house beam, beyond these black and restless dreams
she'll wake before i go to sleep in the silver morning light
ch: carry these words over the ocean, carry these words over the sea
tell her that i'm thinking of her - does she ever think of me?
Out in the drizzle of the dirty rain, i walk the square alone again
reflections of the neon shines in colours on the ground
beyond the woods and the open fields, the long and empty highway miles
she lies beneath these very skies, sleeping sound
ch: carry these words over the ocean, carry these words over the sea
tell her that i'm thinking of her - does she ever think of me?
and the promises that we made - and the place we loved so well
the storm clouds of her eyes, a sadness thunder never still

Lyrics of New Model Army - Ballad - Ghost of Cain - with lyrics

Ballad

When they look back at us and they write down their history
What will they say about our generation?
We're the ones who knew everything and still we did nothing
Harvested everything, planted nothing.
Well we live pretty well in the wake of the goldrush
Floating in comfort on waves of our apathy
Quietly gnawing away at Her body
Until we mortgage the future, bury our children
Storehouses full with the fruits we've been given
We send off the scrag-ends to suckle the starving
But still we can't feed this strange hunger inside
Greedy, restless and unsatisfied.

I was never much one for the great \"Big Bang\" theory
Going out in a blaze of suicidal glory
Not foolish and brave, these leaders of ours
Just stupid and petty, unworthy of power;
Just a little leak here and a small error there
Another square mile poisoned forever
A series of sad and pathetic little fizzles
And out go the lights, never to return.
The affair it is over, the passion is dead
She stares at us now with ice in Her eyes
But we turn away from these bitter reproaches
And take up distractions to forget what we're doing



I stand on these hills and I watch Her at night
A thousands square miles, a million orange lights
Wounded and scarred, She lies silent in pain
Raped and betrayed in the cold acid rain
And I wish and I wish
We could start over again
Yes I wish and I wish
We could win back Her love once again

Lyrics of Korn - Ball Tongue

Ball Tongue

There you are alone
With no hope of ever having something to be proud of
Something earned without begging
Yes, I know you're a person, a person close to me
Who do you think you are? What more do you want from me?!
Ball Tongue!

Why are you at home buried in your self pity?
Why do you insist on living the lifeling out of me?
Yes, I know you're the person, the person that took down me
Does it give you the right to expect your life from balls around me?!
Ball Tongue!

You were my bride, when does our friendship end?
I'm not gonna give in
You were my bride, when does our friendship end?
I'm not gonna give in
How can you fuck'n doubt me, but not again

Ball Tongue!
You're a psycho-fuck!
Ball Tongue!

Ball Till We Fall

Featuring c murder

C murder: (talking)
Nigga between this no limit and tru shit
You gotta take me out the game to take me from this shit here boy
This real down here niggas getting paid
And we gonna stick together and represent it foverever

Chorus: (x2)
We gon' ball till we fall nigga
I'm gon' ball till i motherfucking fall

C murder:
Try to sell a million records get paid like a bank teller
Have i ever crossed the line, nigga never
I'm gonna ride with the tank to the end
Test me (test me) and watch big v do you in
I only answer to one nigga on this earth
That's the colonel, f*** with him you get hurt
I'm known for catching niggas in their residence
I'd tell you more but that shit considered evidence
I'm a motherfucking straight shot
I got to have it on the blocks, where a nigga used to slang rocks
But tru niggas smoke weed like trees
No limit niggas cash shecks with no i.d.'s
I never ran from a man in my life
The hardest nigga, but you better have your mind right
Don't snort no coke or shoot heron
Bitch i'm crazy on my motherfucking own, and uh,
I ain't about all that getting dressed up shit
I go to clubs where them thugs hang out bitch
I won't rest till they put my name on the wall
In other words, i'm gonna gonna ball till i motherfucking fall

Chorus x2

Magic:
I'm gonna ball nigga, there's not a man that gon' stop me
I'm a bad motherfuc*** so these fed's are scared to watch me
I real definition of a thug is me
Mr. magic motherfuc***, i know y'all heard of me
Been in it from the beginning, consider my self small
Converted pounds to g's and i ain't never got caught, cause i got heart
That's how i got myself into this position
Now i'm in the game and the fame is an addition
Now vision this 9th ward nigga working meals
Cause i got skills to pay the bills
Feel what i feel
A nigga couldn't pay me to pause
Cause i'm gonna ball til i motherfucking fall nigga

Chorus x4

Us niggas gonna ball till we fall nigga
Feel what i'm saying
No limit and tru records baby, peep this out
" you aint got a thang, unless you got a tank"
Ha ha

Lyrics of 2 Skinnee J's Ball Point Man

Ball Point Man

Up, up, and away. Ball Point Man's come to save the day.
I've got sass and savvy pack flash by the paragraph
I'm more novel than War and Peace
I fight beasts armed to the teeth on the daily
My pen is my sword and thank Lord never fails me.
I remember back in the days of my youth
When I used to run around on the block with a few friends
Nickers and Kickers and stickers on our Big Wheels,
Mindtricks and Kung Fu grips was the big deal.
At nighttime we'd fight crime defending civilians
Mounting extra sensory offences against the villains by the millions
No defiance to our allegiance cause we instilled fear,
Jimmy quit, Joey got married, but I'm still here



I've got my head in the clouds but I'm grounded.
This superhero steps to the pavement and I pound it.
Hounded by the sound of unfounded speculation
By authorities around to confound the population.
Now most host ghosts, I propose to break the shell.
The coffee shop cop rides in to dispel
These visions of cathedrals from a shopping mall,
And philosophy from a bathroom wall.
And so I strike without hesitation, the forces had to yield
To my devastation my notebook is my battlefield
I roam tomes of zones where spirals spin around
And I can leap a metaphor in a single bound

I'm biding my time
I'm biding my time waiting for a sign to be sent to me
To unleash the power of my secret identity,
But until that day I will stay for the time being
Incognito laying low with my rhyme scheme
Well Shazaam! I Marvel like the captain
At my inopportune impotence in the face of distraction,
Inaction makes me a good guy also-ran
So I battle Black Mantas in the bathtub like Aquaman
Minions of evil heed this tirade
It's a parade of polemics and I love a parade
So I ride into the sunset with the money and the girl
But in my spare time I still save the world

Lyrics of Ball Of Hate (Original)

Ball Of Hate

Inside you is you heart
As also is a ball of hatred
You struggle within
Don't let that hatred swallow you whole

'Cause darkness is all you see
You use it as a foundation of strength
But in fact its what makes you weak
You are so much more

Than that ball of hate
(But it's all that you'll let us see)
We won't tear you apart
We're you're fucking friends

But I won't take the fall
Just to save your ball of bitter hatred
It's your call now it's up to you
What will you do?

I know you can be yourself
Again closer to the kid I knew
You can be you it's not that hard to do
If you trust in us like I said

We won't tear you apart
It's up to you to make a start

Lyrics of Janis Joplin - Ball and Chain (sensational performance at Monterey)

Ball And Chain

Sitting down by my window
Honey, looking out at the rain
Sitting down by my window, looking out at the rain
All around that I felt it
All I can see was the rain
Something grabbed a hold of me
Feel to me, oh, like a ball and chain
Hey, you know what I mean that's exactly what it felt like
But that's way too heavy for you, you can't hold them all

And I say, oh, whoa, whoa, oh, that cannot be
Just because I got oh, your love, please
Why does every
Oh, this can't be just because I got to need you, daddy
Please don't you knock it down now, please
Here you've gone today
What I wanted to love you and I wanted to hold you, yeah, till the day I die
Yes, I did, yes, I did, yeah, hey, hey, alright



Say, whoa, whoa, whoa, honey
This can't be anything I've ever wanted from your daddy tell me now
Oh, tell me, baby
Oh, say, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, honey

I hope there's someone out there who could tell me
Tell me why just because I got to want your love
Honey, just because I got to need, need, need, need your love
I said I understand
Honey, what I'm wanna trying to say hi
Trying, try, try, try, try, try, try
Honey, everybody in the world, also same, baby
When everybody in the world what needs, seem lonely
What I wanted work for your love, daddy
What I wanted trust your love, daddy
I din't understand how come you're gone
I don't understand why half the world is still crying, man
And the other half of the world is still crying too, man
I can't get it together
I mean if you go to ? Oneday, man
I mean, so baby, you want ? Three and sixty five days, right
You ain't gonna within sixty five days, you gonna for one day, man
I tell you, that one day, man, better be your life, man
Because you know, you can stay oh man, you can cry about the other three and sixty four, man I said whoa, whoa, whoa
But you gonna lose that one day, man
That's all you got, you got to call it love, man
That's what it is, man
If you got today, you don't worry about tomorrow, man
Because you don't need it
Because the matter of the fact, as we discovered tat's rain, tomorrow never happens, man
It's all the same fucking day, man



So you gotta when you want to hold someone
You gotta hold them like it's the last minutes of your life
You gotta hold, hold, hold and I say, oh, whoa, whoa, now babe, tell me why
Hold, baby, 'cause some come on your shoulder, baby
It's gonna feel too heavy, it's gonna weigh on you why does every thing, every thing
It's gonna feel just like a ball
Oh, daddy and a chain

Lyrics of Ace Troubleshooter - Ball And Chain

Ball And Chain

I know i told you
but i dole out excuses
i'll get home just as soon as i can
it'll be alright
but i mean it, gotta believe it
you're still my daylight and my evening, girl
and i'll see you tonight
a sunday drive, girl let's get out tonight
Yeah the tunes on the stereo
make me wish i was home
i'm feeling like a leg missing its ball & chain
yeah the tunes on the stereo
make me wish i was home
and it seems cliche to love you
for hating me being away from you
If i said it would you regret it
knowing i'll want you more
every day we're apart?
but we'll be just fine
so i'm jealous of the fellas
who get close enough
to share the air you breathe
but tonight you're all me
a sunday drive, girl let's get out tonight
Yeah the tunes on the stereo
make me wish i was home
i'm feeling like a leg missing its ball & chain
yeah the tunes on the stereo
make me wish i was home
and it seems cliche to love you
for hating me being away from you
Girl you don't have to cry
just bite your lip and sigh
and don't turn out your light
Yeah the tunes on the stereo
make me wish i was home
i'm feeling like a leg missing its ball & chain
yeah the tunes on the stereo
make me wish i was home
and it seems cliche to love you
for hating me being away from you
but i do

Lyrics of #2 - B4-4 - Ball & Chain

Ball And Chain

I just wanna be your ball and chain
wrapped around your finger
locked up, tied me down
follow you forever
never let you get away,
holding on like a ball and chain
I never wanted to stay
in one place too long
oh no, not me, i didn't wanna be
a victim of that fatal touch
when you want someone too much but
you, you'll be the end of me
And i don't want to hurt anymore
[chorus]
I tried my best to avoid
making promises
oh, no, not me, i didn't wanna
be a prisoner of that tender trap
when there's no turning back but
you, you got me on my knees
And i won't be afraid anymore
I just wanna be your ball and chain
wrapped around your finger
locked up, tied me down
follow you forever
never let you get away,
holding on like a ball and chain
[rap]
i know it's been some time confined to be alone
but i know i found the one who's gotts be this love jones
you know that i get open when you rubbing my back the goose bumps
and chills must be proof of that cos i'm feeling when your dealing

when we bubbling it right i look forward to the time the day turns night
you've gotta meet me at the crib for the quarter to nine
and at the time love devine and what do i find
I won't be afraid anymore
The side of you be wanting me just haunting my fight boy be my ball and chain yo it's gotta be right
I just wanna be your ball and chain
wrapped around your finger
locked up, tied me down
follow you forever
never let you get away,
holding on like a ball and chain

Because you know, you can stay oh man, you can cry about the other three and sixty four, man I said whoa, whoa, whoa
But you gonna lose that one day, man
That's all you got, you got to call it love, man
That's what it is, man
If you got today, you don't worry about tomorrow, man
Because you don't need it
Because the matter of the fact, as we discovered tat's rain, tomorrow never happens, man
It's all the same fucking day, man



So you gotta when you want to hold someone
You gotta hold them like it's the last minutes of your life
You gotta hold, hold, hold and I say, oh, whoa, whoa, now babe, tell me why
Hold, baby, 'cause some come on your shoulder, baby
It's gonna feel too heavy, it's gonna weigh on you why does every thing, every thing
It's gonna feel just like a ball
Oh, daddy and a chain

Lyrics of Poison ball and chain

Ball And Chain

Come on, come on
Get on your dress and put on a smile
Lets lose this place
and get out awhile, awhile, awhile

You don't need nothin' fancy
Just a whole lot of attitude
I'll be your man now baby
If you're doing what I want you to do

I keep on tellin' ya

[Chorus]
She's my ball and chain
My lock and key
And I'm liking it baby
She's my ball and chain
My lock and key
And I'm liking it good

I'll t-t-t-tell ya
Momma always said
There was plenty of fish in the sea
So I baited my hook but good
And caught one for me, just for me

She'll set you up with her body
And then knock you out with charm
She's just a little too nasty baby
But that never did me no harm, no
I keep on telling ya

[Chorus]

And she'll always be wrapped tight around me
I t-t-t-tell ya

Lyrics of XTC - Ball and Chain

Ball And Chain

Save us from the ball and chain,
Save us from the ball and chain,
Save us from the ball and chain,
Oh yeah,
The diggers and the tower cranes,
The diggers and the tower cranes

Don't want demolition,
Don't want your compensation,
It's not just bricks and mortar,
We are lambs to slaughter

Save us from the ball and chain,
Save us from the ball and chain,
Save us from the ball and chain,
Oh yeah,
The diggers and the tower cranes,
The diggers and the tower cranes

Must we live in fear,
From those who shed no tears?
Our one and only shelter,
Your games, your helter skelter

Motorways and office blocks,
They're standing on the spot
Where stood a home,
Crushing on the memories of people,
Who have since turned to stone
(Ahh)
They've turned to stone,
(Ahh)
They've turned to stone



Save us from the ball and chain,
Save us from the ball and chain,
Save us from the ball and chain,
Oh yeah,
The diggers and the tower cranes,
The diggers and the tower cranes

Damned To Be Free Death and the shadow that it casts on life scares me little or none. People tell me of a divine right and the happy chosen...
