Blueberries for breakfast,
Love in the afternoon,
Butterflies in my trousers
Under the August moon...
Blueberries for breakfast,
Love in the afternoon,
Butterflies in my trousers
Under the August moon...

Drive you to the airport
Wait 'til it's time to go
I've checked the weather report
They say it will not snow
And all the planes can come and go
But I think the ceiling is too low,
So you can't go.

Blueberries for breakfast,
Love in the afternoon,
Butterflies in my trousers
Under the August moon...

[?] New York fire [?]
Burning just a little too bright
Manhattan firefly,
Never make it through the night
Somehow she came out alright
Through the darkness,
See her light shining bright.

Blueberries for breakfast,
Love in the afternoon,
Butterflies in my trousers
Under the August moon...

I'm gonna have to call the cops,
If you don't leave me alone
Stop waiting at the bus stop,
Trying to walk me home
The FBI, the CIA, you know
They'll never leave you alone
And I will cut you to the bone.

Blueberries for breakfast,
Love in the afternoon,
Butterflies in my trousers
Under the August moon...
Blueberries for breakfast,
Love in the afternoon,
Butterflies in my trousers
Under the August moon...

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
