5 pages and not one mention of Carole King?

Bunch of fricking wet-behind-the-ears philistines up in this bitch.

Carole is King.

Brownie

quote:

Another dreamy summer dog day afternoon
running short of life from chasing after you
people scamper by, all avert their eyes and walk away

Building blocks of mountains hidden in your soul
and script a poem for you while I'm all alone
Thoughts that can't be stopped, my fingers hammer drop and type away

Baby I'm in space when I'm with you
Floating around nothing to do
maybe we can take a walk on the moon

Saw you look around to see who plays the game
And wishing I had spoken all I had to say
Through your squinted eyes you see through my disguise

Minions winding by and speeding down he road
Trees arms line the street while my arms wait below
Hope you'll fall inside and lay beside and float away

Baby I'm in space when I'm with you
Floating around nothing to do
maybe we can take a walk on the moon

Baby I'm in space when I'm with you
Floating around nothing to do
maybe we can take a walk on the moon

re: And the greatest living songwriter is...


quote:


When I was young I lived atop a mountain oh so high
It was built of ivory bricks and glass and towered in the sky
I lived above my brother and beside my father too
But they hardly ever saw me as I hung out on the roof
And I looked out on the city and the taxi cabs below
I would cherish that I had this little place to call my own
Well I thought I knew the future of the mountains in my range
If the future taught me anything the past can never change

Well I sit atop this city blowing smoke rings in the sky
With the twin peaks looming way above the place where I get high
And 10 million heads below me on an island I call mine
But we all find away to share it while we avoid each others eyes
But the truth is that these people are as much my family
As we share a love for mountains that are circled by the sea
While I look upon the city that I’ve grown to call my own
No matter where this journey takes me this place will always be my home

Whooooo-oooah
Sitting on a mountain top, fifteen miles above the city
Whooooo-oooah
Sitting in this melting pot where you can see the future with me

Whimsical, a pen in motion, thoughts roll in my mind, scamper by so quickly now an agile word would find, well I tried to grasp an angel, saw her wings, and watched her fly reality for mingling dreams to scurry back and get in line.

We ordered out for mindless dribble, over used, half wit, ishkabibble, corner store junkies giving advice we ordered out for paradise.

A gallery, a pen in motion, a delightful line instead, it's chivalry outranks commotion on the roads most common tread, and on those boots, the clicking heels, the dreams, the angel starts to fly, to masquerade the world's parade for only seconds at a time.

quote:

Corrinado slipped the chopping block The onlookers in fear and shock He bolted swiftly through the crowd The women yelled and screamed aloud Manilla's words rang through the air "Kill that man or all Beware!" Corrinado tookoff all for bust Gone behind a cloud of dust Passed on tragedy Corrinado moves with ease Eluding all authority with his own agility Ducks down an alley to the center square bazaar Soldiers yell, soldiers scream, don't let him get too far. Corrinado hides down an alley As Manilla's troops begin to rally He lays behind the street snake charmer and slips out of his prison pajamas The Matador, the bull can run Corrinado sidestepped everyone Takes off towards the end of town Drawing troops from all around He knows he's got but one way out His only route without a doubt be fastest to the mighty cliffs and jump for his own benefit Passed on tragedy Corrinado moves with ease Eluding all authority with his own agility Ducks down an alley to the center square bazaar Soldiers yell, soldiers scream, don't let him get too far. Carooning down the mountain top A bouncing rock no will can stop Their chasing our strong hero down Who dodges trees with swift abounds He spins the air like a carousel While dodging shots adeptly till His steps no longer make a sound His feet are well above the ground

Still the greatest love song ever written. It cannot be topped...

quote:

I think we should go outside and set the world on fire
You say that your so bad but you know I don't buy it
I know how we both feel, so lets not try and hide it
So come over here right now and lets not try to fight it
Cause you know you like it

You and I, different but were still the same
You and I

I think I'm crazy, why don't you lock me away
Cause it's late at night, I don't wanna work I wanna play
Your such a pretty little girl, I want you to stay
We can have alot of fun, we can get the job done
Play a little game, it's called scream my name.

You and I, we're different but we're still the same.
You and I
You and I, different but we're still the same
You and I

one two three four five six seven
pick it up now

You and I, different but we're still the same
You and I
You and I, different but we're still the same
You and I
