It changes almost from day to day for me, but being a cynical sod, my current favorite runs as follows:

It's A Miracle

Miraculous you call it babe
You ain't seen nothing yet
They've got Pepsi in the Andes
McDonalds in Tibet
Yosemite's been turned into
A golf course for the Japs
The Dead Sea is alive with rap
Between the Tigris and Euphrates
There's a leisure centre now
They've got all kinds of sports
They've got Bermuda shorts
They had sex in Pennsylvania
A Brazilian grew a tree
A doctor in Manhattan
Saved a dying man for free
It's a miracle
Another Miracle
By the grace of God Almighty
And the pressures of the marketplace
The human race has civilized itself
It's a miracle
We've got warehouses of butter
We've got oceans of wine
We've got famine when we need it
Got designer crime
We've got Mercedes
We've got Porsche
Ferrari and Rolls Royce
We've got choice
She said meet me
In the Garden of Gethsemene my dear
The Lord said Peter I can see
Your house from here
An honest family man
Finally reaped what he had sown
A farmer in Ohio has just repaid a loan
It's a miracle
By the grace of God Almighty
And the pressures of the marketplace
The human race has civilized itself
It's a miracle
We cower in our shelters
With our hands over our ears
Lloyd-Webber's awful stuff
Runs for years and years and years
An earthquake hits the theatre
But the operetta lingers
Then the piano lid comes down
And breaks his fucking fingers
It's a miracle



What are yours?

Like you changes from day to day.. but I consistantly come up with these lovely lyrics:



Walking on his highways
We leave the land
And float inside the dark, black water

Robin flies again

She flew low over the highways
And I saw the wind
Blowing back her barbie doll hair

Robin flies again

And in a kitchen in Kentucky
She thinks she's Peter Pan
And in the bottom of a concrete basement

Robin flies again

Ah!! It demonstrates so beautifully the difference between us. Your choice is romantic & etherial, mine is dark and cynical!!!

Oh to be young again ;-)

I was found In a white chapel
playing chess with the Elephant Man
And delivered by a midwife
In the shell of a giant clam
My best friends were a sewer rat
and a city fox
At the age of ten
I developed a yen for
dismantling clocks
I biked In whistling from the East
wearing an open mind
Wondering about my future
and the treasures I would find
But some trendy cat from Chelsea
looked at me In fright
Said I needed elocution
I chewed my tongue all night

So meet me by the old bridge
when the sun Is getting low
There's a new gambling game
they call the Lemming Show
I've got two tickets front row seats
for the river side
We can take a picnic
and watch the suicides

Well I pulled up by the kerb
and parked my bicycle
In the snow was a red faced man
selling icicles
I asked why coals to Newcastle
he said demand and supply
i said i didn't see the point in that
then he poked me in the eye
Then i came across a theatre queue
waiting to get in
To see Unemployment Benefit
by a writer with a pseudonym
So I played them a tune
by the light of the moon
and then held out my hat
But all I got was a pile of bills
all Including VAT

So meet me by the old bridge
when the sun is getting low
There's a new gambling game
they call the Lemming Show
i've got two tickets front row seats
for the river side
We can take a picnic
and watch the suicides

So i had a dance with my shadow
but i don't think he was impressed
His legs and arms were twenty foot long
and he was badly dressed
it was then the howling squad car
pulled up by my side
And two laughing policemen in one coat
asked me to take a ride
They arrested me for Indocency
as i was dancing a Jig
And took me in for chemistry
as a guinea pig
They dragged me Into the back room
and injected a disease
But when i showed no symptoms
they offered me some cheese

So meet me by the old bridge
when the sun is getting low
There's a new gambling game
they call the Lemming Show
i've got two tickets front row seats
for the river side
We can take a picnic
and watch the suicides

The doctor said see here boy
we know you're anti-State
But give us some of those anti-bodies
and we'll secure your fate
So i made a deal all signed and sealed
and waited for my pay
While the private eye cured the town
and made a kill that day
i saw Big Doc's rise to fame
on the T. V. in the lounge
And I said to the nurse
that takes the biscuit
is there some tea that i can scrounge
But she kicked me out on the street
with only two pints of blood
So i played my pipe to my friends the rats
and the city began to flood

So meet me by the old bridge
when the sun is getting low
There's a new gambling game
they call the Lemming Show
i've got two tickets front row seats
for the river side
We can take a picnic
and watch the suicides

There's a bit from a Jon Spencer Blues Explosion song that I like at the mo. Goes something like:
"....Now, this is the part of the song where I want you all to stand up. Stand up and put ya hands in the air .......and kiss my ass! Cuz ya know ya girlfriend still loves me!"
Fuckin' Rock and Roll!
