Lyrics for the Day – If You Wanna Be Happy

More HAPPINESS

th (2).jpg

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty woman your wife
So for my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you
If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty woman your wife
So for my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you

A pretty woman makes her husband look small
And very often causes his downfall
As soon as he married her and then she starts
To do the things that will break his heart
But if you make an ugly woman your wife
A-you’ll be happy for the rest of your life
An ug-a-ly woman cooks meals on time
And she’ll always give you peace of mind

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty woman your wife
So for my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you

Don’t let your friends say you have no taste
Go ahead and marry anyway
Though her face is ugly her eyes don’t match
Take it from me she’s a better catch

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty woman your wife
So for my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you

Say man!
Hey baby!
I saw your wife the other day!
Yeah?
Yeah, an’ she’s ug-leeee!
Yeah, she’s ugly, but she sure can cook, baby!
Yeah, alright!

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty woman your wife
So for my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you

Lyrics for the Day – Round Here

Leadoff to one of Dr. Reptile’s fave albums of all time

th.jpg

Step out the front door like a ghost
Into the fog where no one notices
The contrast of white on white
And in between the moon and you
The angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right
I walk in the air between the rain
Through myself and back again
Where?
I don’t know
Maria says she’s dying
Through the door, I hear her crying
Why?
I don’t know
‘Round here
We always stand up straight
‘Round here
Something radiates
 
Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
She said she’d like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
And she walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like she’s walking on a wire in the circus
She parks her car outside of my house\
Takes her clothes off,
Says she’s close to understanding Jesus
She knows she’s more that just a little misunderstood
She has trouble acting normal when she’s nervous
‘Round here
We’re carving out our names
‘Round here
We all look the same
‘Round here
We talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs
‘Round here
She’s slipping through my hands
 
Sleeping children got to run like the wind
Out of the lightning dream
Mama’s little baby better get herself in
Out of the lightning
She says, It’s only in my head
She says, Shh, I know it’s only in my head
But the girl on the car in the parking lot
Says Man, you should try to take a shot
Can’t you see my walls are crumbling
Then she looks up at the building
Says she’s thinking of jumping
She says she’s tired of life
She must be tired of something
‘Round here
She’s always on my mind
‘Round here (hey man)
I got lots of time
‘Round here
We’re never sent to bed early
And nobody makes us wait
‘Round here
We stay up very very very very late
I can’t see nothing, nothing
Around here
You catch me if I’m fallin’
You catch me if I’m fallin’
Will you catch me because I’m falling down on here
I said I’m under the gun
Around here
Oh man I said I’m under the gun
Around here
And I can’t see nothin’
Nothin’
‘Round here

Lyrics for the Day – We Just Disagree

A Dave Mason classic to be used frequently on FB

th (3).jpg

Been away
Haven’t seen you in a while
How’ve you been
Have you changed your style?
And do you think
That we’ve grown up differently?
Don’t seem the same
Seems you’ve lost your feel for me
 
So let’s leave it alone
‘Cause we can’t see eye to eye
There ain’t no good guy
There ain’t no bad guy
There’s only you and me
And we just disagree
 
I’m going back
To a place that’s far away
How bout you
Have you got a place to stay?
Why should I care
When I’m just trying to get along?
We were friends
But now it’s the end of our love song
 
So let’s leave it alone
‘Cause we can’t see eye to eye
There ain’t no good guy
There ain’t no bad guy
There’s only you and me
And we just disagree
 
So let’s leave it alone
‘Cause we can’t see eye to eye
There ain’t no good guy
There ain’t no bad guy
There’s only you and me
And we just disagree

Lyrics for the Day – Radio Nowhere

Lot’s of great lyrics on RADIO RADIO — still in progress

th.jpg

I was tryin’ to find my way home
But all I heard was a drone
Bouncing off a satellite
Crushin’ the last lone American night
This is radio nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
This is radio nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
I was spinnin’ ’round a dead dial
Just another lost number in a file
Dancin’ down a dark hole
Just searchin’ for a world with some soul
This is radio nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
This is radio nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
Is there anybody alive out there?
I just want to hear some rhythm
I just want to hear some rhythm
I just want to hear some rhythm
I just want to hear some rhythm
I want a thousand guitars
I want pounding drums
I want a million different voices speaking in tongues

This is radio nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
This is radio nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
Is there anybody alive out there?
I was driving through the misty rain
Yeah searchin’ for a mystery train
Boppin’ through the wild blue
Tryin’ to make a connection with you
This is radio nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
This is radio nowhere
Is there anybody alive out there?
Is there anybody alive out there?
I just want to feel some rhythm
I just want to feel some rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
