Lyrics By Fours

Meme Sunday. This was ganked from Two Lazy Dogs:

1. Put your mp3 player or music player on your computer on random.
2. Post the first four lines from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song (skip repeat artists).
3. Post and let everyone you know guess (in the comments!) what song and artist the lines come from.
4. Please play fair. Don’t be a dirty rotten cheater and Google the lyrics!

1.
Angel, angel
Don’t take your life tonight
I know they take
And that they take in turn

2.
one too many times I fell over you
once in a shadow I finally grew
and once in a night I dreamed you were there
I canceled my flight from going nowhere

3.
Words comin forth like water from the tap
Clap tracks line the spaces places papers people stack
Back track through the minutes when the thoughts went insane
I pulled the picture off the cover and blew out the mind games

4.
China all the way to New York
I can feel the distance getting close
You're right next to me
But I need an airplane

5.
It’s not worth anything more than this at all
I live as I choose or I will not live at all
So return to where you’ve come from
Return to where you dwell

6.
The police walked in for Jimmy Jazz
I said, he ain't here, but he sure went past
Oh, you're looking for Jimmy Jazz
Sattamassagana for Jimmy Dread

7.
I'm impressed, I'm impressed
When that gorilla beats his chest
I fall to bits
I confess

8.
Oh ...
I know I'm unloveable
You don't have to tell me
I don't have much in my life

9.
Tonight it's very clear
As we're both lying here
There's so many things I wanna say
I will always love you

10.
Her knees thrust in one direction
like a symbol of math, a symbol meaning Greater Than
I come recommended by four out of five
I'm a factor in the whole plan

11.
O no, I see,
A spider web is tangled up with me,
And I lost my head,
The thought of all the stupid things I'd said.

12.
We don't need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone

13.
I'm invincible
so are you
we do all the things
they say we can't do

14.
I could write my name by the age of three
and I don't need anyone to cut my meat for me.
I'm a big girl now, see my big girl shoes.
It'll take more than just a breeze to make me

15.
Kanashii koto nante
Nani mo nai kedo
Mune no naka ni chiisana
Ana ga aita you na

16.
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry

17.
Come with me
My love
To the sea
The sea of love

18.
Hot tamales and they red hot, yes, she got 'em for sale
Hot tamales and they red not, yes, she got 'em for sale
I got a girl, say she long and tall
She sleeps in the kitchen with her feets in the hall

19.
Gypsy, sittin' lookin' pretty
The broken rose with laughin' eyes
You're a mystery, always runnin' wild
Like a child without a home

20.
Hi, my name is Stereo Mike.
Yeah, we got three tickets to the Bran Van concert
happening this Monday night at the Pacific Pallisades.
You can all dial in if you want to answer

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
