Musical Monday

I'm cheating today, and posting TWO songs. Mostly because I couldn't decide, but also because it's that kind of Monday.

So, for all you country fans and ladies who just ditched a loser:


Look it Up, by Ashton Shepherd
The word is faithful, look it up
It don't mean sneakin' around
Behind my back like you ain't gettin' enough
How 'bout forever, just look it up
It means through thick and thin and 
Pitchin' in even when the times get tough

The word is easy, look it up
And you'll see a picture of that piece of trash
Ridin' 'round in your pickup truck
Let's try liar, just look it up
But you'll need boots to wade through all the bull
You tell me when you come home drunk
It's just like you to be so clueless
Cause you never thought I'd do this

I said go, goodbye, get lost, get out, get gone 
The word is over
Look it up

You said you're sober, look it up
It's right next to hell is freezin' over, flyin' pigs,
And all that stuff
And how bout baby, look it up
It's what you call me and it's how you act
Every time I call your bluff
It's just like you to keep denyin' 
Save your whinin' and your cryin'

I said go, goodbye, get lost, get out, get gone
The word is over
Look it up

The word's forgiveness, look it up
It's what Jesus has in store for you
But I don't no matter what
Quit your beggin' and your prayin'
Can't you hear what I've been sayin'?

I said go, goodbye, get lost, get out, get gone
The word is over
Look it up

Asshole

Just look it up, look it up

And for all you alternative rock fans and people who want to dance in their chairs today:


Save Me, San Francisco, by Train
I used to love the tenderloin until I made some tender coin
Then I met some ladies from Marin
We took the highway to the one up the coast to catch some sun
That left me with these blisters on my skin

Don't know what I was on but I think it grows in Oregon
So I kept on going, going on right through
I drove into Seattle rain, fell in love then missed the train
That could have took me right back home to you

I've been high, I've been low
I've been yes and I've been oh, hell no
I've been rock 'n' roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco?

Every day so caffeinated, I wish they were Golden Gated
Fillmore couldn't feel more miles away
So wrap me up return to sender, let's forget this five year bender
Take me to my city by the bay

I never knew all that I had, now Alcatraz don't sound so bad
At least they have a hell of a fine Merlot
If I could wish upon a star I would hitch a cable car
To the place that I can always call my own

I've been high, I've been low
I've been yes and I've been oh, hell no
I've been rock 'n' roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco?

I've been up, I've been down
I've been so damn lost since you're not around
I've been reggae and calypso
Won't you save me San Francisco?

To tell you the truth I miss everything, everything
It's a wild, wild beautiful world
But there's a wide eyed girl back there
And she means everything, everything

I've been stop, I've been go
I've been yes and I've been oh, hell no
I've been rock 'n' roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco?

I've been up, I've been down
I've been so damn lost since you're not around
I've been reggae and calypso
Won't you save me San Francisco?

Save me San Francisco
Won't you save me San Francisco?
Save me San Francisco
Won't you save me San Francisco?
