FITTY-TREE WAYS TO LOOSE YOUR LOVER - ON MY OCTOPEE

It's all in your head, ultimate, Lee
Logic will get you through, see?
Let me help you in your struggle to be free
And loose the tenacious hold of this clinging cephalopodee
Dey mus' be fitty-tree ways to lose your lover, Andy
Fitty-tree ways to lube the old Oyster Rockefeller, see?

I'm nun too fond of being in the habit
Of poking my nose into every octopussy's rabbit
Or other people's steak and kidney Octopie
Oh, Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
This octopus is ever so much more than merely food

But allow me to risk redundancy in order to assist you, you lubber
There mus' be at least fitty-tree ways to lube your rubber

You just slip it out on its back, Jack
Put it in the frying pan, Stan
Serve it up with poi, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the octopus, Gus
You don't need to fuss much
Just drop it in the ghee, Lee
And get yourself some Brie

She said it grieves me, Zoe, to see your Freddy in such pain
If only I could do you in some way that would make it smile again
I appreciate that, I said, and would you please re-explain
About the fitty-tree ways?

She said why don't we both just let it sleep on us it tonight
And when the sun comes up I think that you might dimly see the light
And then she kissed me Freddy and I realized that she was all right
And that there mus' be at least fitty-tree ways to lie in the clover
Oh, yeah, at least fitty-tree ways to cut loose your lover

You just slip it out on its back, Jack
Put it in the frying pan, Stan
Serve it up with poi, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the octopus, Gus
You don't need to fuss much
Just drop it in the ghee, Lee
And serve it up with Earl Grey tea

THE BEATLES - JULIA - ON MY iPOD

Half of what I say is meaningless
But I say it just to reach you, Julia

Julia, Julia, ocean child, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering
In the sun

Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
When I cannot sing my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia
Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me

So I sing a song of love, Julia
Hum hum hum hum... calls me
So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia

VAN MORRISON - QUALITY STREET - ON MY iPOD

I've seen, so many lovers cry
Lost love, makes me wonder why
I've found a love, a once in a lifetime love
Angel on high, from heaven so high above
So I thank God for sending me you

I have heard of playing around with numbers
But one is all I need
She can't be beat, she makes me complete
On Quality Street

I have heard of playing around with numbers
But one is all I need
She can't be beat, she makes me complete
On Quality Street

I have lived alone, until you came along
And you gave me love
And my dream came true
And God gave me you

I see the end of the rainbow now
True love has blessed me somehow
Blessing of love, a once in a lifetime love
Angel on high, from heaven so high above
So I thank God for sending me you

I have heard of playing around with numbers
But one is all I need
She can't be beat, she makes me complete
On Quality Street

Quality Street
On Quality Street
Quality, Quality, Quality, Quality Street
Quality Street
On Quality Street

RADIOHEAD - EXIT MUSIC (FOR A FILM) - ON MY iPOD

Wake from your sleep
the drying of your tears
Today we escape, we escape

Pack and get dressed
Before your father hears us
Before all hell breaks loose

Breathe, keep breathing
Don't lose your nerve
Breathe, keep breathing
I can't do this alone

Sing us a song
A song to keep us warm
There's such a chill, such a chill

And you can laugh a spineless laugh
We hope your rules and wisdom choke you

And now we are one
In everlasting peace

We hope that you choke, that you choke
We hope that you choke, that you choke
We hope that you choke, that you choke

OTIS REDDING - TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS - ON MY iPOD

The love songs season kicks off with Otis!

Ooh, she may be weary
And them young girls they do get weary
Wearing that same old shaggy dress
But when they get weary
You gotta try a little tenderness
Tell you, might not believe it, but
You know she's waiting
Just anticipating
The thing that she'll never, never, possess, no, no
But while all the time she's without it
Go to her and try just a little bit of tenderness

That's all you gentlemen gotta do
Oh, but it's one thing
It might be a bit sentimental, yeah, yeah
She has - her greaves and care
But the soft words they are spoken so gentle
Yeah
But, oh, that makes it, makes it easier to bear, yeah

You won't regret it, no, no
Them young girls, they don't forget it
'Cause Love is their whole, whole happiness
Yes, yes, yeah

And it's all so easy
Come on and try
Try a little tenderness
Yeah, try
Just keep on trying

You've got to love her
Squeeze her, don't tease her
Make love, get to her
Hold her tight
Just, just try a little tenderness

That's all you gotta do
You've gotta hold her tight
One more time
You've got to love her, hold her
Don't tease her
Never leave her
Make love to her

Hold her, man
Try a little tenderness
Just one time
God have mercy now
All you've gotta do
Love her
You've gotta hold her
Don't squeeze her
Never leave her
You gotta now, now, now
Watch it, tell everybody

Try, try a little tenderness
You gotta make love
Don't tease her
Never leave her
Rub her down
Smooth her, soothe her
Move her
Love her
Rub her
Gotta, gotta, zak it to her

Try some tenderness
Oh, yeah
Tenderness
Little tenderness
Gotta, Lord, you gotta hold her
Squeeze her
Never leave her

JOY DIVISION - LOVE WILL TEAR US APART - ON MY iPOD

As part of the love songs season that begins tomorrow, it's Joy Division!

When the routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And the resentment rides high
But emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways
Taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed
Our respect run so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep
All my failings expose?
Get a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Is it something so good
Just can't function no more?
When love, love will tear us apart again

THE WHO - WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN - ON MY iPOD

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For I know that the hypnotized never lie

Do ya?

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

There's nothing in the street
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-by
And the party on the left
Is now the party on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
