Let's mass vote this one from my happy teenage years :lol:

suicidal tendancies - i saw your mommy

Yesterday as I went out of the house

I saw her body lying down as quiet as a mouse

She was lying face down in the sewer

What you do-I got up closer and realized that I knew her

What you see-All her organs coming from her inside

That's nasty-Slashed up skin, sliced-up hide

Tell me some more-I turned her over and saw the tire tracks on her head

Then what-That's when I realized she was dead

Twisted body, chopped-off feet

Her body was minced meat

Bust crawling on her arms

She's dead can't do no harm

Gnarled-up legs, broken and bent

Her last breath has been spent

I wonder how much you had to pay

To get your mom killed in such a bloody way

I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead

I watched her as she bled

Well she had-Chewed-off toes on her chopped-off feet

Say what?-I took a picture 'cause I thought it was neat

That's cold-But the thing I like seeing the best

What's that-Were the rodents using her hair as a nest

Damn-I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead

Say what?-I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead

Twisted body, chopped-off feet

Her body was minced meat

Bust crawling on her arms

She's dead can't do no harm

Gnarled-up legs, broken and bent

Her last breath has been spent

I know it is your allowance that you'll really miss

But make it look good at her funeral and give her little kiss

I saw your mommy and your mommy's dead

I saw her lying in a pool of red-And she don't know how to swim

I think it's the greatest thing I'll ever see-What's that?

Your dead mommy lying in front of me-Ba doo be do

I'll always remember her lying dead on the floor-Ba doo be va

I hope she dies twenty times more

I saw your mommy and your mommy is dead

I saw your mommy and your mommy is dead

Twisted body, chopped-off feet

Her body was minced meat

Bust crawling on her arms

She's dead can't do no harm

Gnarled-up legs, broken and bent

Her last breath has been spent

I wonder how much you had to pay

To get your mom killed in such a bloody way

I saw her, I saw her...mommy

I saw your mommy

Yikes!!

Can I nominate Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now"......

Dunes and moons and Ferris wheels

The dizzy,dancey way you feel

As every fairy tale comes real

I've looked at love that way...

Janis Ian's "At Seventeen"

And those of us with ravaged faces

Lacking in the social graces

Desperatley remained at home

Inventing lovers on the phone

Who called to say "Come dance with me"

And murmureed vague obscenities

It isn't all it seems at seventeen

Pulp's "Common People"

Rent a flat above a shop, cut your hair and get a job.

Smoke some fags and play some pool, pretend you never went to school.

But still you'll never get it right

'cos when you're laid in bed at night watching roaches climb the wall

If you call your Dad he could stop it all.

You'll never live like common people

You'll never do what common people do

You'll never fail like common people

You'll never watch your life slide out of view, and dance and drink and screw

Because there's nothing else to do.

They are just some of mine

"Nimrod's Son" The Pixies

One night upon my motorcycle through the desert spead

And smashed my body so that all my friends thought I was dead

My sister held me close and whispered to my bleeding head

"You are the son of a mother ******er"

One two three four

I shook all night and held her hand

Chocolate people well I'll be damned

Land of plenty, land of fun

To find out I'm Nimrod's son

Oh bury me

Far away please

Bury me

Ha-haaa

The joke has come upon me

In my motorcycle mirror I think about the life I've led

And how my soul's been aking all the holes where I have bled

My image spoke to me, yes to me and often said

"You are the son of incestuous union"

One two three

Now my head is clear

My luke hands washed

My daughter's pure

My son is tall

Land of plenty, land of fun

To find out I'm Nimrod's son

Oh bury me

Far away please

Bury me

Ha-ha Ha-ha

The joke has come upon me

"Don't Marry Her" The Beautiful South

Think of you with pipe and slippers

Think of her in bed

Laying there just watching telly

Then think of me instead

I’ll never grow so old and flabby

That could never be

Don’t marry her, have me

The Dead Kennedys

Lets Lynch The Landlord

The Landlord's here to visit

They're blasting disco down below

Sez, "I'm doubling up the rent

Cos the building's condemned

You're gonna help me buy City Hall"

But we can, you know we can

But we can, you know we can

Let's lynch the landlord man

I tell them 'turn on the water'

I tell 'em 'turn on the heat'

Tells me 'All you ever do is complain'

Then they search the place when I'm not here

But we can, you know we can

Let's lynch the landlord

Let's lynch the landlord

Let's lynch the landlord man

There's rats chewin' up the kitchen

Roaches up to my knees

Turn the oven on, it smells like Dachau, yeah

Til the rain pours thru the ceiling

But we can, you know we can

Let's lynch the landlord man

I can feel the earth begin to move

I hear my needle hit the groove

and spiral through another day

I hear my song begin to say

"Kiss me where the sun don't shine"

The past was your but the future's mine

....Youre all out of time.

From She Bangs The Drums - The Stone Roses (1989)

And you wonder where the name comes from B)

Nice needle. My personal roses fave is;

Dawn sings in the garden

Phone sings in the hall

This boy’s dead from two day’s life

Resurrected by the call

Penny here we’ve got to come

So come on round to me

There’s so much penny lying here

To touch, taste and tease

Ring a ding ding ding I’m going down

I’m coming round

Penny’s place her crummy room

Her dansette crackles to jimi’s tune

I don’t care I taste ambre solaire

Her neck her thighs her lips her hair

Ring a ding ding ding I’m going down

I’m coming around

All thoughts of sleep desert me

There is no time

Thirty minutes brings me round to her number nine

Yeah she looks like a painting

Jackson pollock’s number five

Come into the forest and taste the trees

The sun starts shining and I’m hard to please

Ring a ding ding ding I’m going down

I’m coming around

All thoughts of sleep desert me

There is no time

Thirty minutes brings me round to her number nine

To look down on the clouds

You don’t need to fly

I’ve never flown in a plane

I’ll live until I die

From "Going Down" I used to sing it around the house and at school without having the faintest idea what it was about.

These lyrics by Squeeze really sum up the 70's for me.

EXCELLENT!

The indians send signals

From the rocks above the pass

The cowboys take positions

In the bushes and the grass

The squaw is with the corporal

She is tied against the tree

She doesn’t mind the language

It’s the beating she don’t need

She lets loose all the horses

When the corporal is asleep

And he wakes to find the fire’s dead

And arrows in his hats

And davy crockett rides around

And says it’s cool for cats

The sweeney’s doing ninety

’cos they’ve got the word to go

They get a gang of villains

In a shed up at heathrow

They’re counting out the fivers

When the handcuffs lock again

In and out of wandsworth

With the numbers on their names

It’s funny how their missus’

Always look the bleeding same

And meanwhile at the station

There’s a couple of likely lads

Who swear like how’s your father

And they’re very cool for cats

They’re cool for cats

To change the mood a little

I’ve been posing down the pub

On seeing my reflection

I’m looking slightly rough

I fancy this, I fancy that

I wanna be so flash

I give a little muscle

And I spend a little cash

But all I get is bitter and a nasty little rash

And by the time I’m sober

I’ve forgotten what I’ve had

And ev’rybody tells me that it’s cool to be a cat

Cool for cats

Shake up at the disco

And I think I’ve got a pull

I ask her lots of questions

And she hangs on to the wall

I kiss her for the first time

And then I take her home

I’m invited in for coffee

And I give the dog a bone

She likes to go to discos

But she’s never on her own

I said I’ll see you later

And I give her some old chat

But it’s not like that on the tv

When it’s cool for cats

It’s cool for cats

Pink Floyd: Time.

Tired of lying in the sunshine

Staying home to watch the rain

And you are young and life is long

And there is time to kill today

And then one day you find

Ten years have got behind you

No one told you when to run

You missed the starting gun.

Eagles: The Last Resort

Some rich men came and raped the land,

Nobody caught 'em

Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus,

people bought 'em….

…. We satisfy our endless needs and

justify our bloody deeds,

in the name of destiny and the name of God

And you can see them there,

On Sunday morning

They stand up and sing about

what it's like up there

They call it paradise

I don't know why

You call someplace paradise,

kiss it goodbye.

And now happier songs:

Aerosmith: Amazing.

Life's a journey not a destination

And I just can't tell just what tomorrow brings…

Talking Heads : Once in a Lifetime

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack

And you may find yourself in another part of the world

And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile

And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife

And you may ask yourself-Well...How did I get here?

For all you bikers out there....

The flip side to "Come Outside" by Mike Sarne and Wendy Richards (Eastenders) is a classic. "Come Outside" reached number one in the charts in August 1962 for two weeks. The flip side, well you be the judge... Cringe.

One thing that I like

Is a burn up on my bike

A burn up on my bike is what I like

Just for kicks

We ride all through the night

My bird hangs on in fright

When we do the ton for kicks

The M1 ain't much fun

Till you try and do a ton

A burn up on my bike

That's what like

When my bird decides to turn up

I'm off to have a burn up

A burn up on my bike that's what I like

Ad Nauseam..................

Johhny Cash. Hurt

This meant a lot to me for very personal reasons....

I hurt myself today

to see if I still feel

I focus on the pain

the only thing that's real

the needle tears a hole

the old familiar sting

try to kill it all away

but I remember everything

what have I become?

my sweetest friend

everyone I know

goes away in the end

and you could have it all

my empire of dirt

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns

upon my liar's chair

full of broken thoughts

I cannot repair

beneath the stains of time

the feelings disappear

you are someone else

I am still right here

what have I become?

my sweetest friend

everyone I know

goes away in the end

and you could have it all

my empire of dirt

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

if I could start again

a million miles away

I would keep myself

I would find a way

I'm not a huge Smiths fan, but the following still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up after 20 years:

Reel Around The Fountain

I dreamt about you last night

and I fell out of bed twice

you can pin and mount me

like a butterfly

but take me to the haven of your bed

was something that you never said

two lumps please

you're the bees knees

but so am I

Meet me at the fountain

shove me on the patio

I'll take it slowly

Fifteen minutes with you

oh I wouldn't say no

people see no worth in you

oh but I do

I testified

My mama cried

Black people died

When the other man lied

See the TV, listen to me double trouble

I overhaul and I'm comin'

From the lower level

I'm takin' tabs

Sho nuff stuff to grab

Like shirts and it hurts

Wit a neck to wreck

Took a poll 'cause our soul

Took a toll

From the education

Of a TV station

But look around

Hear go the sound of the wreckin' ball

Boom and Pound

When I

Shut 'em down

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

What I use in the battle for the mind

I hit it hard

Like it supposed

Pullin' no blows to the nose

Like uncle L said I'm rippin' up shows

Then what it is

Only 5 percent of the biz

I'm addin' woes

That's the way it goes

Then you think I rank, I never drank, point blank

I own loans

Suckers got me runnin' from the bank

Civil liberty I can't see to pay a fee

I never saw a way to pay a sap

To read the law

Then become a victim of a lawyer

Don't know ya, never saw ya

Tape cued

Gettin' me sued

Playin' games wit' my head

What the judge said put me in the red

Got me thinkin' 'bout a trigger to the lead

No no

My educated mind say

Suckers gonna pay

Anyway

There gonna be a day

'Cause the troop they roll in

To posse up

Whole from the ground

Ready to go

Throw another round

Sick of the ride

It's suicide

For the other side of town

When I find a way to shut 'em down

Who count the money

In tha neighbourhood

But we spendin' money

To no end lookin' for a friend

In a war to the core

Rippin' up the poor in the stores

Till they get a brother

Kickin' down doors

Then I figure I kick it bigger

Look 'em dead in the eye

And they wince

Defense is pressurized

They don't want it to be

Another racial attack

In disguise so give some money back

I like Nike but wait a minite

The neighborhood supports so put some

Money in it

Our corporations owe

They gotta give up the dough

To my town

or else

We gotta shut 'em down
