Ten green bottles, standing on a wall . . .

She arrives in all her splendor
Each night at nine o'clock
Her chariot is the crosstown bus
That stops right down the block
Now the old piano minstrel plays her tune as she walks in
And the Queen of the Silver Dollar's home again

She's the Queen of the Silver Dollar
She rules this smokey kingdom
Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is her throne
Now the jesters flock around her tryin’ to win her favors
To see which one will take the
Queen of the Silver Dollar home

Now her royal dress is satin
It's shabby and it's torn
The royal jewels are rhinestones
The shoes are scuffed and worn
Of the many roads she's been down,
And the places that she's seen
Well they all look at her and say God save the queen

Now the Queen of the Silver Dollar
Is not as haughty as she seems
She was once an ordinary girl with ordinary dreams
But there's a man who found her
And he brought her to this world
He's the one who made a queen of a simple country girl

Yes I'm the Queen of the Silver Dollar
I rule this smokey kingdom
Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is my throne
Now the jesters flock around me tryin' to win my favors
To see which one will take the
Queen of the Silver Dollar home

Yes I'm the Queen of the Silver Dollar
I rule this smokey kingdom
Scepter is a wine glass and a bar stool is my throne
Now the jesters flock around me tryin' to win my favors
To see which one will take the
Queen of the Silver Dollar home

i'm not sure if this is annoying or funny... hahaha... it's stucked in my head for weeeeeeeeks... both original version as well as da malaysian version...

ORIGINAL:
I wonder if you know
How they live in Toyko
If you see me then you mean it
Then you know you have to go
Fast and furious (Tick, Tick, Tick)
Fast and furious (Tick, Tick, Tick)
(Repeat)

MALAYSIAN:
Ah kereta kereta, Drift-drift-drift.
Here we go…
I wonder if you know,
How to be a Mat Motor,
If you likely, come and try it,
Then you’ll realli realli know.
We’re not so Furiouuuus.
Rempit-Rempit-Rempit
We’re not so Furiouuuus.
Rempit-Rempit-Rempit. (weird laughter.)

Snow cuts loose from the frozen
Until it joins with the african sea
In moving it changes its cold and its name
The reason I come and go is the same
Animal game for me
You call it rain
But the human name
Doesnt mean shit to a tree
If you dont mind heat in your river and
Fork tongue talking from me
Swim like an eel fantastic snake
Take my love when its free
Electric feel with me
You call it loud
But the human crowd
Doesnt mean shit to a tree
Change the strings and notes slide
Change the bridge and string shift down
Shift the notes and bride sings
Fire eating people
Rising toys of the sun
Energy dies without body warm
Icicles ruin your gun
Water my roots the natural thing
Natural spring to the sea
Sulphur springs make my body float
Like a ship made of logs from a tree
Redwoods talk to me
Say it plainly
The human name
Doesnt mean shit to a tree
Snow called water going violent
Damn the end of the stream
Too much cold in one place breaks
Thats why you might know what I mean
Consider how small you are
Compared to your scream
The human dream
Doesnt mean shit to a tree

I'm tellin' you to loosen up my buttons babe (Uh huh)
But you keep frontin' (Uh)
Sayin' what you gon' do to me (Uh huh)
But I ain't seen nothin' (Uh)

Typical and hardly
The type i fall for
I like when the physical
Don't leave me askin' for more
I'm a sexy mama (Mama)
Who knows just how to get what I wanna (Wanna)
What I wanna do is bring this on ya (On ya)
Back up all of the things that I told ya (Told ya)

You've been sayin' all the right things all night long
But I can't seem to get you over here to help take this off
Baby, can't you see?
How these clothes are fittin' on me
And the heat comin' from this beat
I'm about to blow
I don't think you know

You say you're a big boy
But I can't agree
'Cause the love you said you had
Ain't been put on me
I wonder
If I'm just too much for you
Wonder
If my kiss don't make you just
Wonder
What I got next for you
What you wanna do? (Do)

Take a chance to recognize that this could be yours
I can see, just like most guys that your game don't please

Most beautiful lovesong ever, and one of my favourite songs of all time:

A PERFECT CIRCLE - Brena

My reflection, wraps and pulls me under
healing waters to be bathed in Brena
Guides me safely in worlds I've never been to
Heal me, heal me, my dear Brena

So vulnerable... but it's allright

Show me lonely and show me openings to
bring me closer to you, my dear Brena

So vulnerable... but it's allright

Heal me, heal me, heal me, ...

I usually don't appreciate lovesongs that much as they all sound so cliché-esque and somewhat unspontaneous. This one song though is spot on, it's just one of those "this is it" moments. The opening line alone goes straight to the deepest of emotions: 'my reflection', the deepest and most intense way you can call your partner, as it not only declares mutual feelings but also declares the reason for them: because you share so much and recognise each other so well in one another, that a very unique spiritual and emotional bond has been created.
And that chorus is spot on as well: "so vulnerable", another thing that I'd say is key in romance: being able to be vulnerable and fragile, to show emotions, and have your loved one as harbour in the tempest.

And apart from the lyrics, the music is magnificent as well, sounds very mysterious with that eastern-sounding intro. This song has it all.

Those who are interested in A Perfect Circle: "Mer de Noms", one of the very best albums of the last decade. Contains at least 4 or 5 world class songs. The sound is very unique, very mysterious with some oriental influences, and with Maynard's very recognisable vocals. The lyrics are very cryptic sometimes, and quite mysterious, but very intelligent.

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now- here he comes

He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentlemen
Like you imagined when you were young

Can we climb this mountain
I don't know
Higher now than ever before
I know we can make it if we take it slow
Let's take it easy
Easy now, watch it go

We're burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane that started turning
When you were young
When you were young

And sometimes you close your eyes and see the place where you Used to live
When you were young

They say the devil's water, it ain't so sweet
You don't have to drink right now
But you can dip your feet
Every once in a little while
~The Killers

PAUL MCCARTNEY lyrics - "This Never Happened Before"


www.OldieLyrics.com

I'm very sure, this never happened to me before
I met you and now I'm sure
This never happened before

Now I see, this is the way it's supposed to be
I met you and now I see
This is the way it should be

This is the way it should be, for lovers
They shouldn't go it alone
It's not so good when your on your own

So come to me, now we can be what we want to be
I love you and now I see
This is the way it should be
This is the way it should be

This is the way it should be, for lovers
They shouldn't go it alone
It's not so good when your on your own

I'm very sure, this never happened to me before
I met you and now I'm sure
This never happened before (This never happened before)
This never happened before (This never happened before)
This never happened before (This never happened before)
This never happened before
