Sweep up the kitchen
Hurry and do the dishes
Bring me a beer mab'
I'll let you go out with your other bitches
Sweep up the kitchen
Could you turn off the goddamn lights?
Fetch me the remote control
We got football tonight
Football tonight
Football tonight

Did I tell you last week when you cooked for me
That fried chicken was a little bit too greasy?
Them carrots that you cooked weren't boiled enough
Now when you gonna do something right? get off your duff

Sweep up the kitchen
Hurry and do the dishes
Bring me a beer mab'
I'll let you go out with your other bitches
Sweep up the kitchen
Could you turn off the goddamn lights?
Fetch me the remote control
We got football tonight
Football tonight
Football tonight

Well, they told me last week at work that my shirts
They really weren't ironed that well
They told me last week at work that my shirts
They really weren't ironed that well, you said, oh, well

Sweep up the kitchen
Hurry and do the dishes
Bring me a beer mab'
I'll let you go out with your other bitches
Sweep up the kitchen
Could you turn off the goddamn lights?
Fetch me the remote control
We got football tonight
Football tonight
Football tonight

You been tellin' all your friends that I drink too much
Whiskey in the moring and it ain't no crutch
I never have time to take a big shit, man
You're always listening to that damn slim whitman
Runnin 'round the house with your shower cap on
Curlers in your hair, and your toenails long
Chunky bar breath and your enquiring mind
When I see you in the morning looking like a pork rind
You snivel to your momma and you say you can't cope
Well this ain't thirty-something and you ain't hope, now

Sweep up the kitchen
Hurry and do the dishes
Bring me a beer mab'
I'll let you go out with your other bitches
Sweep up the kitchen
Could you turn off the goddamn lights?
Fetch me the remote control
We got football tonight
Football tonight
Football tonight

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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”

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
