i once knew a girl named sassy britches
and she would call my name 3000 times a day
she was running round town burning bridges
and now my ride homes never quite the same
i once knew a girl named sassy britches
and i swear unto you it's her god given name
i told her friends they're stuckup
bitches
and now my napkin's soaked with bloodstains
the more you learn the less you know
i'll bet everything is fine
i'll bet everything is fine
the more you see the less you show
oh yeah, everything is fine
this shit happens all the time
oh yeah, everything is fine
this shit happens all the time
her family showered me with countless riches
yet i'm in a bit of a bind
i need much more than that
maybe i can sell her cooking - classy, tasty, delicious dishes
then give my spiel about how it's imported
the less you seed the more you grow
i'll bet nothing is on time
i'll bet nothing is ever on time
the more you see the less you show
oh yeah, everything is fine
this shit happens all the time
oh yeah, everything is fine
this shit happens all the time
i need something i can't find
oh yeah, everything is fine
this shit happens all the time
this shit happens all the time
i still know a girl named sassy britches
and her voice comforts me flying right thru thin air
now i've taken time off work to protest her wishes
but noone's ever around
is there anyone there
the more you learn the less you know
i'll bet you're all out of line
i'll bet you're all out of line
(turn around with the wrong reaction)
(fake us out with a cheap distraction)
the more you reap the more you owe
oh yeah, everything is fine
this shit happens all the time
oh yeah, everything is fine
this shit happens all the time
oh yeah everything is fine
this shit happens all the time
oh yeah, everything is fine
this shit happens all the time

oh miss britches, sassy and sweet
tell me what more could a young girl be
i've got a punk rock band called love
we've got songs that consist of
8-bar sections, gritty and brash
we got a gig opening for the clash
everyone clowned us, sassy oh sassy
what makes a punk rocker treat us so nasty
mountain dew and a pierced eardrum
what makes a punk rock act so dumb
velvet postcards i'll send ya miss britches
bit my tongue and received nine stitches
bitches and ho's always come to the shows
popping sugar and butterscotch in the nose and it shows
cause they'll lose their hair like ted danson
snatch up all the kiddies and then hold 'em all for ransom
burn all your bridges and then build 'em back with plastic
little old ladies makin' cookies from elastica
and it don't stop there!
ex-bass players all have blue hair
boo-boop-be-doop-a-shang-a-lang-coccoa-puff
kurt haggadorn has a self big-muff
betcha makes ya dizzy watch the big wax spin
turn it up to 20, just a suggestion

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Cajun Girl
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”

No Surprises
Radiohead
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.

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
