    Now I'm old and grey
    Got no place to go
    Now I'm old and grey
    Got no place to go
    You got yourself a youngster
    you can't stand me no more

    Far away, across the field

    Tolling of the iron bell

    Calls the faithful to their knees

    Hear the softly spoken magic spell.

    Follow me into the desert
    As thirsty as you are
    Crack a smile and cut your mouth
    And drown in alcohol
    'Cause down below the truth is lying Beneath the riverbed
    So quench yourself and drink the water
    That flows below her head

    2nd verse of 'Sold to the Highest Buddha' - from Angels Egg - by Gong.

    It's a hassle you know
    to make rocket ships
    go to infinity
    And I'm so sick of God
    and these bishops that
    talk of divinity
    Now my head's feeling strange
    and my codpiece
    is starting to tremble
    And that head in the sky
    there is starting to look
    like the devil

    Saw you flying by
    Flash of Turquoise Blue
    I just had to try
    To keep your life in view

    And it's a battered old suitcase to a hotel someplace
    And a wound that will never heal
    No prima donna, the perfume is on
    An old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey

    Jean confided to me she's Mona Lisa biggest fan
    She drew a moustache on her face , she's always seen her as a man
    and Charly ain't no ****, she likes to wear her leather boots
    cos its exciting for the veterans and its a tonic for the troops

    She's so modern - Bob Geldof

    Well, I'll keep on movin', movin' on
    Things are bound to be improvin' these days
    One of these days
    These days I'll sit on corner stones
    And count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friend
    Don't confront me with my failures
    I had not forgotten them

    These days
    Jackson Browne

    These mist covered mountains
    Are a home now for me
    But my home was the lowlands
    And always will be
    Someday you'll return to
    Your valleys and your farms
    And you'll no longer burn to be
    Brothers in arms

    I feel so bad for them having fallen asleep at the drive in. :(

    Wake up, little Susie, wake up
    Wake up, little Susie, wake up
    We've both been sound asleep, wake up, little Susie, and weep
    The movie's over, it's four o'clock, and we're in trouble deep
    Wake up little Susie

    Wake up little Susie, well
    Whatta we gonna tell your mama
    Whatta we gonna tell your pa
    Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say "ooh-la-la"
    Wake up little Susie
    Wake up little Susie, well

    Seen a man standin' over a dead dog
    Lyin' by the highway in a ditch
    He's lookin' down kinda puzzled
    Pokin' that dog with a stick
    Got his car door flung open he's standin' out on highway 31
    Like if he stood there long enough that dog'd get up and run
    Struck me kinda funny
    Seemed kinda funny sir to me
    Still at the end of every hard day
    People find some reason to believe

    Or any verse from that song.
