    I think it's "an actor out alone", though that doesn't really make any more sense:shrug:

    Oh yeah, another one from "Loves You", I think this album pretty much owns this thread - I like it anyway despite the silly lyrics

    I want to pick you up
    Rock you back and forth and make you smile
    I want to hold you close for a while
    Pat pat pat pat pat her on her butt butt
    She's going to sleep be quiet
    Pat pat pat pat pat her on her butt
    She's going to sleep
    Little baby go to sleep

    actor out alone, as in on stage, entertaining the audience without any other actors? just a stab

    It's really a great sounding record.

    Surprised nobody mentioned "Student Demonstration Time", how about this verse,

    "America was stunned on May 4, 1970
    When rally turned to riot up at Kent State University
    They said the students scared the Guard
    Though the troops were battle dressed
    Four martyrs earned a new degree
    The Bachelor of Bullets"

    Thanks, that’s funny.

    I love Bob Weir’s cool guitar playing and also his passionate singing, but he ain’t no lyricist.

    I am Iron Man

    Has he lost his mind?
    Can he see or is he blind?
    Can he walk at all
    Or if he moves will he fall?

    Is he alive or dead?
    Has he thoughts within his head?
    We'll just pass him there
    Why should we even care?

    He was turned to steel
    In the great magnetic field
    When he traveled time
    For the future of mankind

    Nobody wants him
    He just stares at the world
    Planning his vengeance
    That he will soon unfurl

    Now the time is here
    For Iron Man to spread fear
    Vengeance from the grave
    Kills the people he once saved

    Nobody wants him
    They just turn their heads
    Nobody helps him
    Now he has his revenge

    Heavy boots of lead
    Fill his victims full of dread
    Running as fast as they can
    Iron Man lives again!

    You know the line is good "I used to be a little boy so old in my shoes" - come on, that's not fair chopping a line in half. That's a good line - plenty of other Corgan crappy lines. LOL

    Easier said than done getting away from Voldemort if he doesn't want to let you go.

    I love him but lyrically this song is just the worst ever. Lenny Kravitz, "Fly Away"

    I wish that I could fly
    Into the sky
    So very high
    Just like a dragonfly

    I'd fly above the trees
    Over the seas in all degrees
    To anywhere I please

    Oh I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah yeah yeah
    I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah yeah yeah

    Let's go and see the stars
    The milky way or even mars
    Where it could just be ours

    Let's fade into the sun
    Let your spirit fly
    Where we are one
    Just for a little fun
    Oh oh oh yeah!

    I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah yeah yeah
    I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah yeah yeah

    I got to get away
    Feel I got to get away
    Oh oh oh yeah
    I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah, yeah, yeah (oh yeah)

    I want to get away
    I want to fly away
    Yeah with you yeah yeah
    I got to get away
    I want…

    Admittedly I couldn't remember the rest! It's not so bad. I hold my hands up to my error!

    Can I have "The killer in me is the killer in you" instead?

    Hmmm kind of hard to miss since Mike sings the words into a megaphone! :bigeek:
    Kind of like he was saying "you're going to hear my dopey lyrics whether you want to or not!"

    Come on man it's real easy to miss the "bachelor of bullets" line. I just listened again. It's way down in the last verse at 2:36 when there's already been a slew of ridiculous lyrics about southern policeman's mothers and such, and Mike fairly screams the word "bachelor" and kind of swallows "bullets," plus he goes straight into the final two lines in the stanza with hardly any pause. The megaphone doesn't really help. :rolleyes:

    Maybe it's the British plural collective noun thing. The government are, etc. Being American I'm no expert but I read a lot.

    Wishbone Ash .. Blowin' Free

    I thought I had a girl
    I know because I seen her.
    Her hair was golden brown
    Blowin' free like a cornfield.

    She was far away
    I found it hard to reach her.
    She told me "You can try"
    But it's impossible to find her.

    In my dreams everything was alright.
    In your schemes you can only try.

    Any rock song where one line ends with fire, and the next ends with desire. What a braindead, overused, and lameass cliche. :thumbsdow

    Stones - Sympathy For The Devil...

    "I shouted out who killed the Kennedy's when after all it was you and me"

    Myself & Jagger had nothing to do with the Kennedys murders...

    This was stupid to me in 1968 & still is in 2019...

    I absolutely abhor this song !!

    Good point, he does sort of mumble that line and then gets real loud and clear on the next stanza

    Maybe this qualifies as more indecipherable than bad:

    I see a little silhouetto of a man
    Scaramouch, Scaramouch will you do the Fandango
    Thunderbolt and lightning very very frightening me
    Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, figaro, magnifico
