Pardon me boy is that the Chattanooga Choo-choo, Track twenty nine, Boy you can give mea shine.
O harmony! thou tenderest nurse of pain,If that thy note's sweet magic e'er can healGriefs which the patient spirit oft may feel,Oh! let me listen to thy songs again;Till memory her fairest tints shall bring;Hope wake with brighter eye, and listening seemWith smiles to think on some delightful dream.william lisle bowles

Basically I just had to say, "Screw everyone around me - from now on I'm just gonna play what I think is important to me and our music." So I gave the big finger to all the current trends in technical wizardry, and just went off and did what I felt was best for the songs.kirk hammett
Rap music is just computerised crap. I listen to Top of the Pops and after three songs I feel like killing someone.george harrison
We are caught in the coil of a God's romances —We come from old worlds and we go afar:I have missed you again in the Earth's wild chances —Now to another star!Perhaps we are led and our loves are fated,And our steps are counted one by one;Perhaps we shall meet and our souls be mated,After the burnt-out sun.For over the world a dim hope hovers,The hope at the heart of all our songs —That the banded stars are in league with lovers,And fight against their wrongs.edwin markham
No matter how many times people try to pick my lyrics apart ... nobody will really understand what these songs truly mean to me because I would rather not get into it.bert mccracken

Friends I have had both old and young,And ale we drank and songs we sung:Enough you know when this is said,That, one and all, they died in bed.In bed they died and I’ll not goWhere all my friends have perished so.charles henry webb
Sweeter than any sungMy songs that found no tongue;Nobler than any factMy wish that failed of act.Others shall sing the song,Others shall right the wrong,—Finish what I begin,And all I fail of win.john greenleaf whittier
Now no one will listen to songs. The prophesied days have begun. Latest poem of mine, the world has lost its wonder, Don't break my heart, don't ring out.anna akhmatova
I brewed potions in a vain search for life everlasting, I read books, I sang songs of history, And today I've come home to Cold Mountain To pillow my head on the stream and wash my ears.han shan
His helmet now shall make a hive for bees, And lovers’ songs be turned to holy psalms; A man-at-arms must now serve on his knees, And feed on prayers, which are old age’s alms.George Peele
I've written a screenplay that is a series of monologues and songs ; they form this sort of human tapestry across time and place. The form is strange, but I find it really fascinating.
Sang in tones of deep emotion, songs of love and songs of longing.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
When I am dead, my dearest, sing no sad songs for me, plant thou no roses at my head, no shady cypress tree.
No matter how long you play rock and roll, songs might change just as long as the balls are there, the rock balls. And that's what's important to us
Hidden in wonder and snow, or sudden with summer, This land stares at the sun in a huge silence Endlessly repeating something we cannot hear. Inarticulate, arctic, Not written on by history, empty as paper, It leans away from the world with songs in its lakes Older than love, and lost in the miles.
It is best of all trades, to make songs, and the second best to sing them.hilaire belloc
Listen to that song, and learn it! Half my kingdom would I give, As I live, If by such songs you would earn it!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The Spartans meanwhile, man to man, and with their war songs in the ranks, exhorted each brave comrade to remember what he had learned before; well aware that the long training of action was of more use for saving lives than any brief verbal exhortation, though ever so well delivered.
I make no apologies for being a huge fan of radio songs.Keith urban
