    Are you gonna take me home tonight?
    Oh, down beside that red firelight;
    Are you gonna let it all hang out?
    Fat bottomed girls,
    You make the rockin' world go round.

    Hey
    I was just a skinny lad
    Never knew no good from bad,
    But I knew life before I left my nursery,
    Left alone with big fat Fanny,
    She was such a naughty nanny!
    Hey big woman you made a bad boy out of me!
    Hey hey!

    I've been singing with my band
    Across the water, across the land,
    I seen ev'ry blue eyed floozy on the way, hey
    But their beauty and their style
    Went kind of smooth after a while.
    Take me to them lardy ladies every time!

    (C'mon)
    Oh won't you take me home tonight?
    Oh down beside your red firelight,
    Oh and you give it all you got
    Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go round
    Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go round

    Hey listen here,
    Now I got mortgages on homes
    I got stiffness in my bones
    Ain't no beauty queens in this locality. (I tell ya!)
    Oh, but I still get my pleasure
    Still got my greatest treasure.
    Heap big woman you done made a big man of me!
    Now get this!

    Oh, (i know) you gonna take me home tonight (please)
    Oh, down beside that red firelight
    Oh, you gonna let it all hang out
    Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go round
    Fat bottomed girls you make the rockin' world go round
    GET ON YOUR BIKES AND RIDE!

    Oooh yeah oh yeah them fat bottomed girls
    Fat bottomed girls
    Yeah, yeah, yeah,

    "Love, it will not betray you Dismay or enslave you, it will set you free, Be more like the man you were made to be" - Mumford and Sons

    "Then one night in desperation, A young man breaks away, He buys a gun, steals a car, Tries to run, but he don't get far, And his mama cries, As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man, Face down on the street with a gun in his hand In the ghetto" - Elvis

    "He wants to write a love song, An anthem of forgiving, A manual for living with defeat, A cry above the suffering, A sacrifice recovering, But that isn’t what I need him To complete" - Leonard Cohen

    I want to learn to walk with others as an equal,
    I want to treat the ones who love me with respect,
    I want to tell the world I'll give them all a piggyback,
    And try to take away my negative effect.

    As you go through life you'll see There is so much that we Don't understand And the only thing we know Is things don't always go The way we planned But you'll see every day That we'll never turn away When it seems all your dreams come undone We will stand by your side Filled with hope and filled with pride We are more than we are We are one

    "Miracles, each and everywhere you look,
    And nobody has to stay where they put.
    This world is yours, for you to explore,
    There's nothing but miracles, beyond your door!"- Miracles, Insane Clown Posse



    "I like to see you grin, I love to see you beam.
    The corners of your mouth turned up, has always been my dream.
    But if you're kinda worried, and your face has made a frown,
    I'll work real hard and do my bet to turn that sad frown upside down!"- Smile, The Massive Smile Project



    "To all the prisoners of 9-till-5 jobs,
    Stuck in cubicle cells.
    To all the baggers of groceries and merchandise,
    Trapped in suburban hell.
    To all the people stuck in traffic jams,
    The corporate gags and bound.
    To all the people lost faith in the system,
    Tired of being pushed around...

    Let's burn it all down!"- Ode to Revenge, Doctor Steel.



    "Productive members of society,

    Some things in life are bad
    They can really make you mad
    Other things just make you swear and curse.
    When you're chewing on life's gristle
    Don't grumble, give a whistle

    And this'll help things turn out for the best...
    And...always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the light side of life...

    If life seems jolly rotten
    There's something you've forgotten
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
    When you're feeling in the dumps
    Don't be silly chumps
    Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

    And...always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the light side of life...

    For life is quite absurd
    And death's the final word
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
    Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
    Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

    So always look on the bright side of death
    Just before you draw your terminal breath

    Life's a piece of ****
    When you look at it
    Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
    You'll see it's all a show
    Keep 'em laughing as you go
    Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

    And always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the right side of life...
    (Come on guys, cheer up!)
    Always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the bright side of life...
    (Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
    Always look on the bright side of life...
    (I mean - what have you got to lose?)
    (You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
    What have you lost? Nothing!)
    Always look on the right side of life...

    Lyrics everone should take to heart, especially in the age of celebrity worship, and also lyrics for those who have had any trouble over their liking of MLP:-

    Marillion - "Beautiful"

    Everybody knows we live in a world
    Where they give bad names to beautiful things
    Everybody knows we live in a world
    Where we don't give beautiful things a second glance
    Heaven only knows we live in a world
    Where what we call beautiful is just something on sale
    People laughing behind their hands
    As the fragile and the sensitive are given no chance

    And the leaves turn from red to brown
    To be trodden down
    To be trodden down
    And the leaves turn from red to brown
    Fall to the ground
    Fall to the ground

    We don't have to live in a world
    Where we give bad names to beautiful things
    We should live in a beautiful world
    We should give beautiful a second chance

    And the leaves fall from red to brown
    To be trodden down
    Trodden down
    And the leaves turn green to red to brown
    Fall to the ground
    And get kicked around

    You strong enough to be
    Have you the courage to be
    Have you the faith to be
    Honest enough to stay
    Don't have to be the same
    Don't have to be this way
    C'mon and sign your name
    You wild enough to remain beautiful?
    Beautiful

    And the leaves turn from red to brown
    To be trodden down
    Trodden down
    And we fall green to red to brown
    Fall to the ground
    But we can turn it around

    You strong enough to be
    Why don't you stand up and say
    Give yourself a break
    They'll laugh at you anyway
    So why don't you stand up and be
    Beautiful

    Black, white, red, gold, and brown
    We're stuck in this world
    Nowhere to go
    Turnin' around
    What are you so afraid of?
    Show us what you're made of
    Be yourself and be beautiful
    Beautiful

    TMBG in fact have some of the best lyrics ever:
    • I want to raise my freak flag higher and Higher
    • They call me Dr Worm. Good morning, how are you, I'm Dr Worm. I'm interested in things. I'm not a real Doctor but I am a real Worm.
    • I'm not done and I won't be till my head falls off
    • They revamped the airport completely. Now it looks just like a nightclub. Everyone's excited and confused.
    • Mr Horrible said "I don't mind. The thing that bothers me is Someone keeps moving my chair"
    • Memo to myself: do the dumb things I gotta do. Touch the puppet head
    • He wants a shoehorn. the kind with teeth. People should get beat up for stating their beliefs.
    • Who cut the head off the voodoo doll that resembled a republican president from long ago?
    • This truck is driving out of my mind, but this truck has a mind of its own, which is a lucky thing 'cos my leg is so short that it can't reach the break.
    • You're older than you've ever been and now you're even older.

    A certain Avril Lavigne song I've been listening to.
    You're not alone
    Together we stand
    I'll be by your side, you know I'll take your hand
    When it gets cold
    And it feels like the end
    There's no place to go
    You know I won't give in
    No I won't give in

    Keep holding on
    'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
    Just stay strong
    'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
    There's nothing you could say
    Nothing you could do
    There's no other way when it comes to the truth
    So keep holding on
    'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

    So far away
    I wish you were here
    Before it's too late, this could all disappear
    Before the doors close
    And it comes to an end
    With you by my side I will fight and defend
    I'll fight and defend
    Yeah, yeah

    Keep holding on
    'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
    Just stay strong
    'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
    There's nothing you could say
    Nothing you could do
    There's no other way when it comes to the truth
    So keep holding on
    'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

    Hear me when I say, when I say I believe
    Nothing's gonna change, nothing's gonna change destiny
    Whatever's meant to be will work out perfectly
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    La da da da
    La da da da
    La da da da da da da da da

    Keep holding on
    'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through
    Just stay strong
    'Cause you know I'm here for you, I'm here for you
    There's nothing you could say
    Nothing you could do
    There's no other way when it comes to the truth
    So keep holding on
    'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

    Keep holding on
    Keep holding on

    There's nothing you could say
    Nothing you could do
    There's no other way when it comes to the truth
    So keep holding on
    'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through

    I'm not too keen on the music itself, but I certainly agree with those lyrics. We should take more time in life to appreciate the beautiful things, and also to acknowledge them.

    * * * * *

    Here's some more lyrics I think we can all relate to:

    Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
    I don't mind, I think they're crazy
    Running everywhere at such a speed
    Till they find there's no need (There's no need)

    Please, don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
    And after all I'm only sleeping

    Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
    Taking my time

    Lying there and staring at the ceiling
    Waiting for a sleepy feeling...

    - The Beatles, "Sleeping" (1966)

    Sure, the music isn't everyone's cup of tea. :) But yes, it's certainly true and of course people should let others like what they like, without making fun of them for it. :)

    I don't know what it's like to be like you, so I'll keep my mouth shut. - Reel Big Fish

    edit: Actually, lemme quote the full verse?

    Well finally, that's the way it is
    I like something you don't and you're tellin' me it's @$#%!
    It's a waste of time, we can't change our opinions
    (and you know what else?)
    I don't know what it's like
    I don't know what it's like
    I don't know what it's like to be like you
    I don't know
    So I'll keep my mouth ((shut))

    Some Regina Spektor for you:
    They made a statue of us. Our noses have begun to rust.
    They keep on burying our dead. They keep on planting the bones in the ground. But they don't grow. The sun doesn't help. The Rain doesn't help. Hi, I'm Icarus, I'm Falling.
    I had a dream. Crispy crispy Benjamin Franklin came over and babysat all four of my kids.
    This is how it works, You're young until you're not, you love until you don't, you try until you can't, you laugh until you cry, you cry until you laugh and everyone must breath until their dying breath.
    Maybe you should cut your own hair 'cos that can be so funny, it doesn't cost any money and it always grows back. Hair grows even after you're dead.
    Be afraid of the lame, they'll inherit your legs, Be afraid of the old, they'll inherit your soul, be afraid of the cold, they'll inherit your blood, Apres moi le deluge, After me comes the flood.

    Be what you want to be.
    See what you want to see.
