Strange Song Lyrics

    Loads more, REM

    I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
    I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
    Over my shoulder a piano falls
    Crashing to the ground

    But you can't beat Lucy, The Beatles

    Picture yourself in a boat on a river

    With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.

    Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,

    A girl with caleidoscope eyes.



    Cellophane flowers of yellow and green

    Towering over your head.

    Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes

    And she's gone.



    [Ref :] Lucy in the sky with diamonds

    Lucy in the sky with diamonds

    Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah, ah



    Follow her downto a bridge by the fountain

    where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies.

    Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers

    That grow so incredibly high.



    Newspaper taxis appear on the shore

    Waiting to take you away

    Climb in the back with your head in the clouds

    And you're gone.



    Ref.



    Picture yourself on a train in a station

    With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,

    Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,

    The girl with caleidoscope eyes.



    Ref...

  4. Start wearing purple wearing purple
    Start wearing purple for me now
    All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
    I promise, it's just a matter of time...

    So yeah, ha

    Start wearing purple wearing purple (da da da da da)
    Start wearing purple for me now
    All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
    I promise, it's just a matter of time...

    I've known you since you were a tawny, and I was twenty,
    And thought that some years from now
    A purple little little lady will be perfect
    For dirty old and useless clown...

    So yeah, ha
    Start wearing purple wearing purple (da da da da da)
    Start wearing purple for me now
    All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
    I promise, it's just a matter of time...

    So yeah, I know it all from Diogenis to Foucault
    From Lozgechkin to Paspartu
    I ja kljanus obostzav dva paltza
    Schto muziko poshla ot Zzukov Mu!...
    Party!

    Start wearing purple wearing purple (da da da da da)
    Start wearing purple for me now

    Start wearing purple for me now!

    All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
    I promise, it's just a matter of time...

    So Fio-Fio-Fioletta! Etta! Va-va-va-vaja dama ti moja!
    Eh podayte nam karetu, votetu, i mi poedem k ebenjam!

    So yeah, ah start wearing purple wearing purple
    Start wearing purple for me now
    All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish
    I promise, it's just a matter of time!...
     
  5. She told me not to step on the cracks
    I told her not to fuss and relax

    Pretty little face stopped me in my tracks

    But now she sleeps with one eye open

    That's the price she'll pay





    I took a knife and cut out her eye

    I took it home and watched it wither and die

    Well, she's lucky that I didn't slip her a smile

    That's why she sleeps with one eye open

    That's the price she'll pay





    I said, hey, girl with one eye

    Get your filthy fingers out of my pie

    I said, hey, girl with one eye

    I'll cut your little heart out cause you made me cry






    I slipped my hand under her skirt

    I said don't worry, it's not gonna hurt

    Oh, my reputation's kinda clouded with dirt

    That's why you sleep with one eye open

    But that's the price you pay

    Has nobody heard 'Friday' yet? You can pick any of the lyrics from it but my personal favourite is:
    "Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday,
    Today is Friday, Friday (partying)
    We so excited, we so excited, we gonna have a ball today
    Tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes after.....wards"
