Damien Rice – Animals Were Gone Lyrics 12 years ago
I think the words are "We can get a house and some BOXERS on the lawn". Boxers are a British breed of dog.

Right Said Fred – You're My Mate Lyrics 13 years ago
I think this song tells a touching story that exemplifies the duality and venality of man. He starts off talking to a guy, ostensibly his 'mate', but he doesn't want to talk about his mate's failed relationship, he just wants a free drink.

Then later on in the song he is talking to a woman, who seems to be the girlfriend (ex) of the guy he was talking with earlier. He doesn't want to talk about her problems either, but he wants to take advantage of her situation, at the same time betraying his first 'mate'.

The whole 'stand by you' thing is sung in an ironic way, perhaps showing the bitterness of past wrongs that have been done to the singer.

Very deep and meaningful (!)

Beverley Knight – Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda Lyrics 13 years ago
Shoulda woulda coulda is not short for 'should I, would I, could I' it's short for 'should have, could have, would have'. Otherwise the song makes absolutely no sense...It's about things she should have, could have or would have done. But as she says, at the end there's no point in thinking about what you should have done, as you can't go back and change it.

Paul Weller – Wild Wood Lyrics 13 years ago
I get the feeling this song is about living in London (or generically about any big city). High tide mid afternoon is rush hour.

People go to work in the city to make money, and everyone makes them feel guilty because of the money they earn and the big companies they work for - "Don't let them get you down
Making you feel guilty about
Golden rain bring you riches
All the good things - you deserve now"

But in the end people only work in the city until they've got enough money to move somewhere calm, away from the Wild Wood - "Day by day your world fades away
Waiting to feel - all the dreams that say
Golden rain will bring you riches
All the good things - you deserve now - and I say
Climbing forever trying
Find your way out - of the wild wild wood"

Every day, heading home, they think about how they want to get out of the city for good eventually.

Dire Straits – Brothers In Arms Lyrics 13 years ago
Erm...this song is clearly not about the american civil war. For a start Dire straits probably don't give a crap about america. its about scotland vs england. Brothers in Arms refers to the jacobites vs the royalists i.e brothers who were on different sides and fought each other for their beliefs. The first two lines show that its about Scotland, mentioning the jacobites who once lived in the lowlands but were forced into Scotland;s remote highlands once their army was defeated. Anyway. Seriously good song.

Alicia Keys – My Boo, Pt. 1 (feat. Usher) Lyrics 14 years ago
I think "boo" is like a pet name, the equivalent of shnookums or wumbly-bear :) So the song is basically saying that even though the two people singing aren't together any more they will always mean to each other what they meant before, and they'll always think of each other in terms of their old petnames.
