this is a tale about a man, his vision is blurried and his world is spinning fast like fan
a brand new day means a brand new problem
and all things seem to fail just before he wants to start them.
no explanation for this bull***, brain is out of order, mouth is like a full clip
of ordinary things that he wannna tell the world...
the man i talk about is me, the problem is a bad girl..

yo! she´s a foxy one and full of ginger
abled to turn men in to mice and "battlecats" into "cringers"
it was hard to handle this shocks
when "ms. sunny island" met "mr. brompton city boondox".
it ain´t hard to tell that the way that i feel
is like i´m trapped in a living hell.
this mamacita drives me crazy and if this situation stays that way
i´m pushing up some motherfukkin´ daysies.
when she crosses the alley, cars crash,
and if you wistle after her you might risk a bash(ouch!)
if you ask her for a date you might catch a smile...
but she is too hot to handle so don´t even try (... don´t even try)

so what the deal mommy? haha!
bahama mama makes me wicked in this fukkin´ game of love!
so what the deal mommy? haha!
i give you everything that i´ve got.

i told her everything i did in the past,
to find out more about the girl, that´s only made for the braz.
valentine cards i bought her , flowers and ***.
a bunch of roses that i´d put to her door got stolen by a bunch of kids.
i tried it all but nothing seems to fit,
until my buddy chino came to me and told me basically this:
(chino:)"put it in a song, a reggaetune, you know?"
under her balcony i stood and sung so:
"nah me the rude boy from brompton city
singing for the irie girl that doesn´t love me
why don´t you come down and hold me close?"
the only thing that really came down was some water icecold..
now we are staring at each other without a plan
she says:" i´ve got to tell you a little something, maybe then you understand
the things you did for me were cool but better hit the trail,cuz´
i love to make love, but only to a female" ( ... to a female, what the hell!!)

so what the deal mommy? haha!
bahama mama makes me wicked
in this fukkin´ game of love.
so what the deal mommy? haha!
i give you everything that i´ve got.

stop romancing, start dancing
(ladies,shake that nasty ass,come on!!
oooh,i like dat! ey yo,chi hit it off!!!)

so what the deal mommy? haha!
bahama mama makes me wicked in this fukkin´ game of love!
so what the deal mommy? haha!
i give you everything that i´ve got!

(one mo´time 4 the ladies,come on!!)

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
