    Post a song with the lyrics. :cool:



    Don't you ever, don't you ever
    Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome
    Don't you ever, don't you ever
    Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

    Prince Charming
    Prince Charming
    Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
    Don't you ever, don't you ever
    Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

    Don't you ever, don't you ever
    Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards
    Don't you ever, don't you ever
    Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards

    Prince Charming
    Prince Charming
    Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
    Don't you ever, don't you ever
    Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

    Silk or leather or a feather
    Respect yourself and all of those around you
    Silk or leather or a feather
    Respect yourself and all of those around you

    Don't you ever, don't you ever
    Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards
    Don't you ever, don't you ever
    Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards

    :lol:

    I'm the dandy highwayman
    Whom you're too scared to mention
    I spend my cash
    On looking flash
    And grabbing your attention
    The devil take your stereo
    And your record collection
    The way you look, you'll qualify
    For next year's old age pension!

    Stand and deliver
    Your money or your life
    Hoh!

    Try to use a mirror
    Not a bullet or a knife
    Hoh!

    I'm the dandy highwayman
    So sick of easy fashion
    The clumsy boots, peekaboo roots
    That people think so dashing
    So what's the point of robbery
    When nothing is worth taking?
    It's kind of tough to tell a scruff
    The big mistake he's making

    Stand and deliver
    Your money or your life
    Hoh!

    Try to use a mirror
    Not a bullet or a knife
    Hoh!

    And even though you fool your soul
    Your conscience will be mine
    All mine

    We're the dandy highwaymen
    So tired of excuses
    Of deep meaning philosophies
    Where only showbiz loses
    We're the dandy highwaymen
    And here's our invitation
    Throw your safety overboard
    And join our insect nation!

    Stand and deliver
    Your money or your life
    Hoh!

    Try to use a mirror
    Not a bullet or a knife
    Hoh!

    Even though you fool your soul
    Your conscience will be mine
    All mine

    "Never Going Back Again"

    She broke down and let me in
    Made me see where I've been
    Been down one time
    Been down two times
    I'm never going back again
    You don't know what it means to win
    Come down and see me again
    Been down one time
    Been down two times
    I'm never going back again

    "Wonderful Tonight"

    It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear.
    She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.
    And then she asks me, "Do I look all right?"
    And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."

    We go to a party and everyone turns to see
    This beautiful lady that's walking around with me.
    And then she asks me, "Do you feel all right?"
    And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."

    I feel wonderful because I see
    The love light in your eyes.
    And the wonder of it all
    Is that you just don't realize how much I love you.

    It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head,
    So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed.
    And then I tell her, as I turn out the light,
    I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight.
    Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."

    "Fortress Around Your Heart"

    Under the ruins of a walled city
    Crumbling towers and beams of yellow light
    No flags of truce, no cries of pity
    The siege guns have been pounding through the night
    It took a day to build the city
    We walked through its streets in the afternoon
    As I returned across the fields I'd known
    I recognized the walls that I'd once made
    I had to stop in my tracks for fear
    Of walking on the mines I'd laid

    And if I built this fortress around your heart
    Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
    Then let me build a bridge
    For I cannot fill the chasm
    And let me set the battlements on fire

    Then I went off to fight some battle
    That I'd invented inside my head
    Away so long for years and years
    You probably thought or even wished that I was dead
    While the armies are all sleeping
    Beneath the tattered flag we'd made
    I had to stop in my tracks for fear
    Of walking on the mines I'd laid

    And if I built this fortress around your heart
    Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
    Then let me build a bridge
    For I cannot fill the chasm
    And let me set the battlements on fire

    This prison has now become your home
    A sentence you seem prepared to pay
    It took a day to build the city
    We walked through its streets in the afternoon
    As I returned across the lands I'd known
    I recognized the fields where I'd once played
    I had to stop in my tracks for fear
    Of walking on the mines I'd laid

    And if I built this fortress around your heart
    Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire
    Then let me build a bridge
    For I cannot fill the chasm
    And let me set the battlements on fire

    Worlds shortest song.



    "Her Majesty"
    Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
    But she doesn't have a lot to say
    Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
    But she changes from day to day

    I want to tell her that I love her a lot
    But I gotta get a bellyful of wine
    Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
    Someday I'm going to make her mine, oh yeah
    Someday I'm going to make her mine

    For educational purposes only.



    She came from Providence,
    the one in Rhode Island
    Where the old world shadows hang
    heavy in the air
    She packed her hopes and dreams
    like a refugee
    Just as her father came across the sea

    She heard about a place people were smilin'
    They spoke about the red man's way,
    how they loved the land
    And they came from everywhere
    to the Great Divide
    Seeking a place to stand
    or a place to hide

    Down in the crowded bars,
    out for a good time,
    Can't wait to tell you all,
    what it's like up there
    And they called it paradise
    I don't know why
    Somebody laid the mountains low
    while the town got high

    Then the chilly winds blew down
    Across the desert
    through the canyons of the coast,
    to the Malibu
    Where the pretty people play,
    hungry for power
    to light their neon way
    give them things to do

    Some rich men came and raped the land,
    Nobody caught 'em
    Put up a bunch of ugly boxes,
    and Jesus people bought 'em
    'nd they called it paradise
    The place to be
    They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea

    You can leave it all behind and sail to Lahaina
    just like the missionaries did, so many years ago
    They even brought a neon sign: "Jesus is coming"
    Brought the white man's burden down
    Brought the white man's reign

    Who will provide the grand design?
    What is yours and what is mine?
    'Cause there is no more new frontier
    We have got to make it here

    We satisfy our endless needs and
    justify our bloody deeds,
    in the name of destiny
    and in 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

    Let Me Be Your Pirate - Nena


    It's time to take you with me
    On all the seven seas
    We'll sail until the edge of time
    The moon will keep us company

    It's time to make the flight now
    The skies are clear for take off
    This longing has me calling your name
    All our money's just to play this game

    For you I'd do those crazy things and I'd
    Lay the world down at your feet and I'd
    Catch the falling stars from heaven, all this
    Only to kiss you just one time

    It's time to take you with me
    Down all the endless highways
    We'll run until the edge of time
    The moon will keep us company

    I'm a huge Beatles fan, it's hard to fund authentic real Beatles songs nowadays on youtube. Great song.
