Barbara Sue- the 60's rock

Judging form the way you look,
you should not be a cook
cutting carrots in the kitchen
of a truck stop restaurant.
You should be with me fishin'
on the creek at my special spot.
I was thinking of a song
that would remind me of you
but those I thought of were wrong.
So here1s what what the Beatles would do.

They would sing...
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue
You know I love you.
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue,
There's nothing I can  do
but to want to hold your hand
and be your man.
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue,
You know I love you.

John would play his guitar,
and you would be the star.
Your smile would be the inspiration
for a new dance across the nation.
Paul would sing the lead;
Ringo and George would be harmony.
The music would plant the sees
to make me want  you only.
But all this is a dream, and
things are not as they seem.

The Beatles would sing...
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue
You know I love you.
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue,
There's nothing I can  do
but to want to hold your hand
and be your man.
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue,
You know I love you.

You could pretend to work late,
and we could go out for a date.
But the night has a thousand eyes
as sources for Gossip's spies.
Word would get to your lover
that you were fishing for another.
I just have to taste your smile
and hope it lasts a long time.
It will have to do for a while,
until I can call you mine.

And the boys would sing...
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue
You know I love you.
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue,
There's nothing I can  do
but to want to hold your hand
and be your man.
Barbara Sue, Barbara Sue,
You know I love you.




In the Movies- rap

I can be the good guy, or the bad.
I can be the happy one, or the sad.
I can be anything when I take a seat
and become part of the movie.
I can escape my reality.

I can be in England, or in the East.
I can be poor and hungry, or feast.
I can be anything when I take a seat
and become part of the movie.
I can escape my reality.

I can be head over heals in love, or out.
I can tango, waltz, or twist and shout.
I can be anything when I take a seat
and become part of the movie.
I can escape my reality.

I can be the loser, or the winner.
I can be a saint, or a lost sinner.
I can be anything when I take a seat
and become part of the movie.
I can escape my reality.

I can  hurt and kill with a blank gun.
I can be elected since I am the one.
I can be anything when I take a seat
and become part of the movie.
I can escape my reality.

I can see in color, or black and white.
I can be in the shadows, or in the light.
I can be anything when I take a seat
and become part of the movie.
I can escape my reality.

I can be anything when I take a seat
and become part of the movie.
I can lose my familiar flesh reality
in the controlled celluloid fantasy.
My freedom is my sanity.

Blue Over You

You have left me, babe,
and now I'm blue.
You have gone away, oh, 
and I am the fool.
Can't sleep at night
'Cause I'm thinking of you.
You have left me, babe,
and now I'm blue.

My shoes are tattered since
I've been walkin' the streets.
The laces are worn and
the shoes fall from my feet.
Things haven't  been right
since you left me last week.
You have left me, babe,
and now I'm blue.
You have gone away, oh, 
and don't know what to do.

My mind has been scattered,
and I can't even think.
Dreams of us together are
forever down the sink.
Things haven't  been right
since you left me last week.
You have left me, babe,
and now I'm blue.
You have gone away, oh, 
and I am the fool.

My body has been shattered,
and my muscles are weak.
My heart is heavy, and I
can feel it skip a beat.
Things haven't  been right
since you left me last week.
You have left me, babe,
and I'm the fool.
You have gone away, oh, 
and I'm feelin' blue.

My soul has been battered.
I  hate the mid-day heat.
The comfort of the cool
darkness is what I need.
Things haven't  been right
since you left me last week.
You have left me, babe,
and I'm feelin' blue.
You have gone away, oh, 
and I'm the fool.

I've been tattered, shattered,
scattered and battered, and
I'm getting blue over you.
I'd like to see you soon.
Things haven't  been right
since you left me last week.
Can't sleep at night
'Cause I'm thinking of you.
You have left me, babe,
and now I'm blue.
