Inspired by truscott once again

Mark linked to some very awesome song lyrics and claimed they were the best ever. It inspired me to post some of my favourite lyrics. Please feel free to add yours!


OUR RETIRED EXPLORER (Dines With Michel Folcault In Paris, 1961)
by The Weakerthans

Just one more drink and then I should be on my way home. I'm not entirely sure what you're talking about. I've had a really nice time, but my dogs need to be fed. I must say that in the right light you look like Shackleton. Comment allez-vous ce soir? Je suis comme ci comme ├ža. Yes, a penguin taught me French back in Antarctica. I could show you the way shadows colonize snow. Ice breaking up on the bay off the Lassiter coast. Light failing over the pole as every longitude leads up to your frost bitten feet. Oh, you're very sweet, thank you for the flowers and the book by Derrida, but I must be getting back to dear Antarctica. Say, do you have a ship and a dozen able men that maybe you could lend me?

DON'T MAKE FUN OF DADDY'S VOICE
by Morrissey

Long ago, when he was young and restless
Suddenly, Daddy saw the beckoning finger of fate

Don't make fun of Daddy's voice
because he can't help it
when he was a teenage boy
something got stuck in his throat

When you are young you crave affection
and it can come from the strangest direction

Don't make fun of Daddy's voice
because he can't help it
when he was a teenage boy
something got stuck in his throat

No te divertes con pappy.
No te divertes con pappy.
No te divertes con pappy.
No te divertes con pappy.
No te divertes con pappy.
No te divertes con pappy.
No te divertes con pappy.

BRAND NEW HAIRSTYLE
by The Smoking Popes

I'm looking for a brand new hairstyle
One that I can call my own
One that says I'm not afraid to be my own man

One that makes you glad to see me
One that makes me glad to be me
One that I can wear with pride when I go outside

I'm tired of caring about
What other people say
My hair is on my head
My hair is mine

I need a brand new outlook
To face a brand new day
I need a brand new hairstyle in a big way

I'm looking for a brand new hairstyle
One that I can call my own
One that says I'm not afraid to cut my own hair

One that makes you glad to see me
One that makes me glad to be me
One that I can wear with pride when I go outside

i put some great Mars Volta lyrics on my site, but here are some other great lyrics i'm sure you'll appreciate.

The Math Song
The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets

Y
Y equals X over 5
5 to the power of Zi
Zi is the square root of 3
3 is the number for me
I said

X
X by the tangent of N
N minus pi over 10
That equals negative 9
Negative 9 is so fine

You've got a brain
And nobody really needs another love song

N
N is the product of V
V and the cosine of 3
Cube that and add 44
And not an integer more
Baby

V
V equals 1 through the sum
The sum of 101
And 83 over 5
What is the value of Y?

You've got a brain
And nobody really needs another love song
