Lyrics for the Day – a classic beautiful song

Turns out La Cienega is a street in LA.

Oh the night
Here it comes again
It’s on with the jeans the jacket and a shirt
How’d I end up feeling so bad
For such a little girl

And I hold you close in the back of my mind
Feels so good but damn it makes me hurt
And I’m too scared to know how I feel about you now
La Cienega just smiled
See you around

And I hold you close in the back of my mind
Raise my glass ’cause either way I’m dead
Neither of you really help me to sleep anymore
One breaks my body and the other breaks my soul
La Cienega just smiles
Waves goodbye

Oh the night
Here it comes again
It’s off with the jeans the jacket and the shirt
How’d I end up feeling so bad
For such a little girl

And I hold you close in the back of my mind
Feels so good but damn it makes me hurt
And I’m too scared to know
I feel about you now
I feel about you now
La Cienega just smiled and said
I’lll see you around

Lyrics for the Times – Walk of Life

Yeah you do the walk of life…

th 8 (3).jpeg

Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lula
Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
Down in the tunnels tryin’ to make it pay
He got the action
He got the motion
Well yeah the boy can play
Dedication
Devotion
And turnin’ all the night time into the day
He do the song about the sweet lovin’ woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk
Do the walk of life
Yeah he do the walk of life
 
Here comes Johnny gonna tell you the story
Hand me down my walkin’ shoes
Here comes Johnny with the power and the glory
Backbeat the talkin’ blues
He got the action
He got the motion
Oh yeah the boy can play
Dedication
Devotion
Turnin’ all the night time into the day
 
He do the song about the sweet lovin’ woman
He do the song about the knife
Yeah he do the walk
He do the walk of life
Yeah he do the walk of life
 
Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lula
Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singin’ I Gotta Woman
Down in the tunnels tryin’ to make it pay
He got the action
He got the motion
Oh yeah the boy can play
Dedication
Devotion
And turnin’ all the night time into the day
And after all the violence and double talk
There’s just a song in all the trouble and the strife
You do the walk
Yeah you do the walk of life
You do the walk of life

Move
 
This man
This dutiful man
Has got this sense of devotion
One look
One touch of a hand
Can set the spiral in motion
 
I want it
Can’t have it
Oh, I can hardly stand it
Oh, what’s a man to do?
 
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Na na na na na na na now
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Na na na na na na na now
 
This girl
This beautiful girl
With eyes the size of the ocean
This man
This dutiful man
Has got this mixed up emotions
I want it
Can’t have it
Oh, I can hardly stand it
Oh, what’s a man to do?
 
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Na na na na na na na now
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Na na na na na na na now
 
Head, shoulders, knees, toes
Look alive it’s time to go
Head, shoulders, knees, toes
Look alive it’s time to go
Head, shoulders, knees, toes
Look alive it’s time to go
Head, shoulders, knees, toes
Look alive it’s time to go
 
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up
I gotta get up
Move
Gotta get up

Na na na na na na na now

Lyrics for the Day – Classics: Simple Sister

Not sure these Procol Harum lyrics would float today — unless for a certain someone who just ran for President

th 8 (1).jpeg

Simple sister
Got whooping cough
Have to burn her toys
Take her treats
Eat her sweets
Scare off all the boys
 
Simple sister
Got whooping cough
Have to shut her out
Wear her clothes
Steal her bows
Tell her that she’s stout
 
Simple sister
Got whooping cough
Lock her in a cell
Throw the key
Into the sea
Hope she never gets well

Lyrics for the Day – Til I Am Myself Again

Here’s one from the past to hail their new album coming out.

th 6.jpeg

I want to know where my confidence went
One day it all disappeared
And I’m lying in a hotel room miles away
Voices next door in my ear
 
Well daytime’s a drag
Nighttime’s worse
Hope that I can get home soon
But the half-finished bottles of inspiration
Lie like ghosts in my room
 
Well I wanna go
I know I can’t stay
But I don’t want to run
Feeling this way
Til I am myself
Til I am myself
Til I am myself again
 
There’s a seat on the corner
I keep every night
Wait til the evening begins
And I feel like a stranger from another world
But at least I’m living again
 
There are nights full of anger
Words that are thrown
Tempers that are shattered and thin
But the moments of magic are just too short
They’re over before they begin
 
Well I know it’s time
One big step
I can’t go
I’m not ready yet
Til I am myself
Til I am myself
Til I am myself again
 
I had a dream that my house was on fire
People laughed while it burned
Well I tried to run but my legs were numb
Had to wait til the feeling returned
 
Well I don’t need a doctor
To figure it out
I know what’s passing me by
When I look in the mirror
Sometimes I see
Traces of some other guy
 
Well I wanna go
I know I can’t stay
I don’t want to run
Feeling this way
Til I am myself
Til I am myself
Til I am myself again

Lyrics for the Day – Chicago wins World Series

Lake Shore Drive – Aliota Haynes Jeremiah

th 6.jpeg

There’s a road I’d like to tell you about
Lives in my home town
Lake Shore Drive the road is called
And it’ll take you up or down
From rags on up to riches
Fifteen minutes you can fly
Pretty blue lights along the way
Help you right on by
And the blue lights shining with a heavenly grace
Help you right on by
 
And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore Drive
Heading into town
Just slippin’ on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound
 
And it starts up north from Hollywood
Water on the driving side
Concrete mountains rearing up
Throwing shadows just about five
Sometimes you can smell the green
If your mind is feeling fine
There ain’t no finer place to be
Than running Lake Shore Drive
And there’s no peace of mind or place you see
Than riding on Lake Shore Drive
 
And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore drive
Heading into town
Just slippin’ on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound
 
And it’s Friday night and you’re looking clean
Too early to start the rounds
A ten minute ride from the Gold Coast back
Make sure you’re pleasure bound
And it’s four o’clock in the morning
And all of the people have gone away
Just you and your mind and Lake Shore Drive
Tomorrow is another day
And the sunshine’s fine in the morning time
Tomorrow is another day
 
And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore drive
Heading into town
Just snaking on by on LSD
Friday night trouble bound
