"Scuse me while I kiss the sky" Jimi Hendrix - Hey Joe

" If you didn't care what happened to me
And I didn't care what happened to you,
We would Zig Zag our way through the boredom and pain
Occasionally glancing up through the rain
Wondering which of the buggers to blame
And watching for pigs on the wing" Rodger Waters - Pink Floyd - Pigs on the Wing

"Hold your fire, keep it burning bright, hold your flame 'til the dream ignites, a spirit with a vision is a dream with a mission" Neal Peart - Rush

"Don't worry, 'bout a thing, cause every little thing's gonna be alright" -Bob Marley

"Hangman, hangman, slack your rope a while,
Think I see my friends coming, Riding many a mile.
Friends, did you get some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me, my dear friends, To keep me from the Gallows Pole?
What did you bring me to keep me from the Gallows Pole?
I couldn't get no silver, I couldn't get no gold,
You know that we're too damn poor to keep you from the Gallows Pole.

Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,
I think I see my brother coming, riding many a mile.
Brother, did you get me some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me, my brother, to keep me from the Gallows Pole?
Brother, I brought you some silver,
I brought a little gold, I brought a little of everything
To keep you from the Gallows Pole.
Yes, I brought you everything to keep you from the Gallows Pole."

Leadbelly - Led Zeppelin - Gallows Pole

"they disembarked in 45
and no one spoke and no one smiled
there were too many spaces in the line
gathered at the cenotaph
all agreed with hand on heart
to sheath the sacrificial knifes
but now
she stands upon southampton dock
with her handkerchief
and her summer frock clings
to her wet body in the rain
in quiet desperation knuckles
white upon the slippery reins
she bravely waves the boys goodbye again"

Rodger Waters - Pink Floyd - The Final Cut with reference to Maggie Thatcher sending her troops to take back the Faulklands in the eighties

To qoute him further " and Maggie, over lunch one day, took a cruiser..... with all hands, apparently, to make him give it back...."

Ten fingers we have each
Nine planets around the sun repeat
Eight ball is the last if you triumphant be
Seven oceans pummel the shores of the sea

It's a typical situation
In these typical times
Too many choices

Everybody's happy
Everybody's free
We'll keep the big door open
And everyone'll come around
Why are you different
Why are you that way
If you don't step in line
We'll lock you away

Six senses keeping
Five around a sense of self
Four seasons turn on and turn off
I can see three corners from this corner
Two is a perfect number
But one

Everybody's happy
Everybody's free
We'll keep the big door open
And everyone'll come around
Why are you different
Why are you that way
If you don't step in line
We'll lock you away

I JUST LOVE THIS SONG! It just make you feel GREAT Exclamation Wink This could even be our Company SONG, "IF YOU DONT GET IN LINE WELL LOCK YOU AWAY" hehe Exclamation

Baby i love your way, Peter Frampton
LP. Frampton Comes Alive 1976

Shadows grow so long before my eyes
and they're moving across the page
Suddenly the day into night
Far away from the city but dont hesitate
'cause your love wont wait hey
ooh baby i love your way every day
Wanna tell you i love your way every day
wanna be with you night and day

Moon appears to shine and light the sky
With the help of some fireflies
I wonder how they have the power shine shine shine
I can see them under the pines
but dont hesitate 'cause your love wont wait hey
Ooh baby i love your way every day
Wanna tell you i love your way every day
wanna be with you night and day yeah

But dont hesitate 'cause your love wont wait
I can see the sunset in your eyes
Brown and grey and blue besides
Clouds are stalking islands in the sun
Wish i could dry one out of season
But dont hesitate ' cause your love wont wait hey
Ooh baby i love your way every day
Wanna tell you i love your way
Wanna be with you night and day
Ooh baby i love your way every day
Wanna tell you i love your way
Wanna be with you night and day......

Have always loved this one (among many other - mostly soppy lovesongs);

ALPHAVILLE - FOREVER YOUNG
Lets dance in style, lets dance for a while
Heaven can wait were only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We dont have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The musics for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders were getting in tune
The musics played by the madmen

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why dont they stay young

Its so hard to get old without a cause
I dont want to perish like a fading horse
Youth is like diamonds in the sun
And dimonds are forever

So many adventures couldnt happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

A soul in tension thats learning to fly, Condition grounded but determined to try, Cant keep my eyes from the circling skies, Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, i - Pink Floyd
