Trigger Happy - "Weird Al" Yankovic


Trigger happy
Trigger happy

Got an AK47 well you know it makes me feel alright
Got an Uzi by my pillow, helps me sleep a little better at night
There's no feeling any greater
Than to shoot first and ask questions later
Now I'm trigger happy,(wooooooo) trigger happy every day

Well, you can't take my guns away, I got a constitutional right
Yeah, I gotta be ready if the Commies attack us tonight
Ba Ba Ba
I'll blow their brains out with my Smith and Wesson
That ought to teach them all a darn good lesson
Now I'm trigger happy,(wooooooo) trigger happy every day

(Oh yeah, I'm)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
(Oh baby, I'm)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
(Oh I'm so)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
Better watch out, punk, or I'm gonna have to blow you away

Oh, I accidently shot daddy last night in the den (Shot daddy in the den)
I mistook him in the dark for a drug-crazed Nazi again
(drug-crazed Nazi again)
Now why'd you have to get so mad?
It was just a lousy flesh wound, Dad
You know, I'm trigger happy,(woooooooo) trigger happy every day

Oh, I still haven't figured out the safety on my rifle yet
Little Fluffy took a round, better take him to the vet
I filled that kitty cat so full of lead
We'll have to use him for a pencil instead
Well, I'm trigger happy, trigger happy every day

(Oh yeah, I'm)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
(Oh baby, I'm)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
(Oh I'm so)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
Better watch out, punk, or I'm gonna have to blow you away

Come on and grab your ammo
What have you got to lose?
We'll get all liquored up
And shoot at anything that moves

Got a brand new semi-automatic weapon with a laser sight
(shoot to kill now shoot to kill)
Oh, I'm prayin' somebody tries to break in here tonight
(shoot to kill now shoot to kill)
I always keep a Magnum in my trunk
You better ask yourself, do you feel lucky, punk?
Because I'm trigger happy, trigger happy every day

(Oh yeah, I'm)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
(Oh baby, I'm)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
(Oh I'm so)trigger, trigger happy
Yes I'm trigger, trigger happy
Better watch out, punk, or I'm gonna have to blow you away
Better watch out, punk, or I'm gonna have to blow you away
Better watch out, punk, or I'm gonna have to blow you away
Better watch out, punk, or I'm gonna have to blow you away

Natalie Merchant one fine day


one fine day
you'll look at me
and then you'll know our love was
meant to be

one fine day
you're gonna want me
for your girl

the arms I long for
will open wide
and you'll be proud to have me
right by your side

one fine day
you're gonna want me
for your girl

now i know you're
kind of a boy
who only wants to run around

i'll keep waiting
and some day, darling
you'll come to me
when you want to settle down

one fine day
we'll meet once more
and then you'll want the love you
threw away before

one fine day
you're gonna want me
and one fine day
you're gonna want me
and one fine day
you're gonna want me
for your girl

Journey - "Lights"


When the lights go down in the City
And the sun shines on the bay
Do I want to be there in my City
Ooh, ooh


So you think you're lonely
Well my friend I'm lonely too
I want to get back to my City by the bay
Ooh, ooh


It's sad, oh there's been mornings out on the road without you,
Without your charms,
Ooh, my, my, my, my, my

When the lights go down in the City
And the sun shines on the bay
Do I want to be there in my City
Ooh, ooh

When the lights go down in the City
And the sun shines on the bay
Do I want to be there in my City
Ooh, ooh

Elton John - Someone Saved My Life Tonight


When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights
The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima donna Lord you really should have been there
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it's one more beer and I don't hear you anymore
We've all gone crazy lately
My friends out there rolling 'round the basement floor

And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye


I never realized the passing hours of evening showers
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
It's four o'clock in the morning
Dammit listen to me good
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive

And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
Paying your h.p. demands forever

They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home

Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight
So save your strength and run the field you play alone

Touch of Grey - Grateful Dead


Must be getting early; clocks are running late.
Paint-by-number morning sky looks so phony.
Dawn is breaking everywhere; light a candle, curse the glare.
Draw the curtains; I don't care, 'cause it's alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

I see you've got your list out, say your piece and get out.
Guess I get the gist of it but it's alright
Sorry that you feel that way; the only thing there is to say,
Every silver lining's got a touch of grey.
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

It's a lesson to me, the Ables and the Bakers and the C’S
The A-B-C's we all must face, try to keep a little grace.

It's a lesson to me, the Deltas and the East and the Freeze.
The A-B-C's we all think of, try to give a little love.

I know the rent is in arrears, the dog has not been fed in years,
It's even worse than it appears, but it's alright.
The cow is giving kerosene, kid can't read at seventeen,
The words he knows are all obscene, but it's alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

The shoe is on the hand it fits; there's really nothin' much to it.
Whistle through your teeth and spit 'cause it's alright
Oh well, a touch of grey, kind of suits you anyway,
That was all I had to say, and it's alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.
We will get by, we will get by, we will get by, we will survive.
We will get by, we will get by, we will get by, we will survive.
