Madonna – Like A Prayer [Re-Invention Tour] HD

August 16, 2019 Leave a comment

Life is a mystery everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

When you call my name it’s like a little prayer
I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power
Just like a prayer
You know I’ll take you there

I hear your voice,
It’s like an angel sighing
I have no choice,
I hear your voice
Feels like flying

I close my eyes,
Oh, God, I think I’m falling
Out of the sky,
I close my eyes
Heaven help me

When you call my name it’s like a little prayer
I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power
Just like a prayer
You know I’ll take you there

Like a child you whisper softly to me
You’re in control just like a child
Now I’m dancing

It’s like a dream,
No end and no beginning
You’re here with me,
It’s like a dream
Let the choir sing

When you call my name it’s like a little prayer
I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power
Just like a prayer
You know I’ll take you there

When you call my name it’s like a little prayer
I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power
Just like a prayer
You know I’ll take you there

Life is a mystery everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

Just like a prayer,
Your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me,
You are a mystery

Just like a dream,
You are not what you seem
Just like a prayer,
No choice your voice can take me there

[Repeat with ad-libs:]
Just like a prayer,
I’ll take you there
It’s like a dream to me

Just like a prayer,
Your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me,
You are a mystery

Just like a dream,
You are not what you seem
Just like a prayer,
No choice your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer,
Your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me,
You are a mystery

Just like a dream,
You are not what you seem
Just like a prayer,
No choice your voice can take me there

Your voice can take me there
Take me there

[Repeat until the end:]
Just like a prayer,
Your voice can take me there

CDR: Universitorienteritis

August 16, 2019 Leave a comment

Universitorienteritis is the inflammation of small minds within an academic environment.  It is most commonly caused by undercooked food for thought contaminated with ideologenic microbes such as Bacillus Marxis, Diversitatia, Equalinella, Genderidium, Justica Socious, and Revovirus. Symptoms include delirium, emotional cramping, mental dehydration, and mob fever. Treatment with measured doses of reality is the most common and effective cure.

Doobie Brothers What A Fool Believes Live at Alpine Valley 1979 Part 3

August 15, 2019 Leave a comment

He came from somewhere back in her long ago
The sentimental fool don’t see
Tryin’ hard to recreate
What had yet to be created once in her life
She musters a smile
For his nostalgic tale
Never coming near what he wanted to say
Only to realize
It never really was

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
He’s watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
And nothing at all keeps sending him…

Somewhere back in her long ago
Where he can still believe there’s a place in her life
Someday, somewhere, she will return

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
He’s watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
There’s nothing at all
But what a fool believes he sees…

Pretty Little One – Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers feat. Edie Brickell

August 14, 2019 Leave a comment

Saw a girl at a picture show
Walked right up and said hello
Seemed to me like a girl in need
I’m a guy who’s built for speed
You and me could have some fun
You pretty little one

Took her riding around the town
Ain’t no woman ever shut me down
Ever seen a truck like this?
How about a little kiss?
You pretty little one

Pretty little one
Pretty little one

Took her out about a month or so
She’s my gal, I told her so
She resisted for a bit
Maybe that’s the way of it
You pretty little one

Couple times she tried to leave
Told her that don’t work for me
Her daddy tried to intervene
Folks, I’m just a mean machine
I can handle dumb old Pops
What’s he done but shovel rocks?
I said, Baby that’s enough
I might’ve got a little rough
On the pretty little one

Pretty little one
Pretty little one

Then she called me late one night
Said, It’s over, let’s not fight
I said, Sure but one more talk
Maybe just a little walk
Aound the block a nice goodbye
You’re so lovely honey-pie
I went over, picked her up
Got her in my pickup truck
Driving slow around the town
Then I put the pedal down
Took her down a gravel road
Stopped the truck where no one goes
This is where the job gets done
On the pretty little one

Pretty little one
Pretty little one

Blackest night that I had seen
In the darkness I felt mean
From my boot I pulled a knife
Said, I’m gonna take your life
I was calm as I can get
So I lit a cigarette
In the flicker I could see
She had a pistol trained on me
That pretty little one

Edie Brickell
I said, Mister I’m no fool
My daddy raised me country cool
I think my papa knows enough
Guys like you who think they’re tough
He read you easy as ABC
That’s when he gave this gun to me
And ever since your truck arrived
My hand’s been on this.45

Steve Martin
I went at her with my knife
She pulled the trigger, shot me twice
In the heart and in the head
Took half a breath, slumped over dead
She pumped another for good luck
Right between my buttercups
That pretty little one

Pretty little one
Pretty little one

In the grave I’m dead and gone
The little gal, she wrote this song
She came over in due course
Sang to me without remorse
Then she whispered to the ground

Edie Brickell
I’ll let you have another round
My name is Lucy Allencott
You should know that I was not
Your pretty little one
