There comes a time when a man's gotta choose
A time when you have to decide what to do
Watcha' gonna do? Well I got better things to do with my time
Than to sit on my ass and throw pearls before swine
Gotta-gotta-go-go light up the ignition
Gotta kill that sacred cow
Please spare me all of your futuristic visions
'Cause I gotta get some action
Gotta get some action now!
Things have been goin' on for much too long
Yeah I've heard it all before and I think I know the song
Careful now kid, you might just fall for their ruse
Well I couldn't really bother 'cause I got nothin' to lose
Gotta-gotta-go-go light up the ignition
Gotta kill that sacred cow
Please spare me all of your futuristic visions
'Cause I gotta get some action
'Cause I gotta get some action
'Cause I gotta get some action
Gotta-gotta-go-go light up the ignition
Gotta kill that sacred cow
Please spare me all of your futuristic visions
'Cause I gotta get some action
Gotta get some action now!

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
