It's way past noon, I just woke up
Man, I feel like shit
One drink too much, took me right out, pass
How the hell did I get home

I was still in bed when I heard the door
Somebody kept on knockin'
And there she was, neat as a pin
Smile on the face, staring down on me

There she was, there she was
Asking for the little donation
There she was, there she was
Shakin' more than my foundations

So I asked her in, and to my surprise
She didn't waste no time
She took off her dress, kicked off her shoes
And threw away her glasses

She was here, she said, to save my soul
Asking for a little donation
I gave her all I had to give
Waiting for my salvation

There she was, there she was
Praying for the little donation
On her knees, there she was
Shakin' more than my foundations

There she was
Begging for a little donation
Down on her knees
She rocked me down to my foundations
Dwn to my foundations

It's all for a good purpose
But it ain't for charity
It's all for a good purpose
She came for money, and gave her dignity

C.O.D.- Charity
C.O.D.- Charity, no charge
C.O.D.- Charity, no fees
C.O.D.- Charity

C.O.D.- Charity, she came, she saw, she conquered
C.O.D.- Charity
C.O.D.- Charity, she came, she saw, she had it from me
C.O.D.- Charity

C.O.D.- Charity, down
C.O.D.- Charity, down on me
C.O.D.- Charity, oh Lord
C.O.D.- Charity, she's sucking out the devil, the devil in me

You know, I'm good
Do you like my holy donation
Just call on me, whenever your want
And rock me down to my foundation

There she was
Asking for a little donation
Don't ever stop, don't spill a drop
Keep a shakin' on a my foundations

Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
