Bill and Ted and Wayne's world drawl
Just another dull fucking bore
Vietnam's cool now even superman's believed
Hussein still in power as the media war retreats

Suck your honey until you choke
You are a mechanism of social control
Multi-national aim of one world culture
Turning one dollar into another and another

Dead Yankee drawl hey we got your beat
Dead Yankee drawl hey we love Oscar
Smothering injustice seen through starving eyes
Tearing down forests just to earn a buck

Killed off literature for sex and violence
Fed a generation the equivalent of silence
Dragged jack down to self same bigotry
Passive acceptance of a consumer society

Fake sentiments tying up contracts
Making idols of guitars and haircuts
Multi-national aim of one world culture
Turning one dollar into another and another

Dead Yankee drawl hey we got your beat
Dead Yankee drawl hey we love Oscar
Smothering injustice seen through red Indian eyes
Silent race war of sweet Hollywood lies

Let's go down to Greenwich village and desecrate
The noraid slogans that justify 6 countries hate

Let's go down Redondo beach and wax body company
'cause reality for t.v. is Disney, not king, Rodney

Let's go down to Indiana youth center quickly
Tyson's money ain't as free as junior Kennedy's

Dead Yankee dead Yankee dead Yankee drawl

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
