I'd never even been to Wrigley Field. I never even enjoyed baseball that much, but I loved being there, the crowd was lovely, and they all sang with me!

One of the first lessons he or she learns is that in baseball anything, absolutely anything, can happen. Just two days ago as I write this, something happened that had never happened in baseball before.

Thorned Thorns

Remorse is not my hunting course, what i do is always planned, you will not idea the clue - The moon rise, inside my soul, victory has not won, there is no prize - I never bet on the one to loose, rather crash your cash in a bin before you think of a win - Thorns of the thorned in the side of my bed, thorned thorns destroys what is the dead inside my head - Will i go, where, will i stay, there, born to be left with right, the choices with too many noises

Russian Roulette

This theme is known quite well.
Our love story was like a Russian roulette.
I would never bet or foretell
If I had to bite a bullet.

My heart sang beautiful song,
I could fly high in the sky,
Wrote poems for the one I belong,
Didn’t think of the day I die.

He insisted on changing the rules of the game,
I ran away from the unnecessary risk,
Love forever I wanted to proclaim,
But he showed me only a big fist.

I wished him to be my husband,
He wished to use me as a toy.
I haven’t seen the foggy England,
I thought about life I would enjoy.

My heart was so gentle,
I couldn’t recognize a flirt.
The cylinder was near my temple,
But…there was no bullet in it.

LIFE GOES ON!
I SING A NEW SONG!

Some Of Farmer Stebbin's Opinions

No, Parson, 'tain't been in my style,
(Nor none ov my relations)
Tew dig about the gnarly roots
Ov prophetic spekkleations,
Tew see what Malachai meant;
Or Solomon was hintin';
Or reound what jog o' Futur's road
Isaiah was a-squintin'.

I've lost my rest a-keepin' out
The hogs from our cowcumbers;
But never lost a wink, you bet,
By wrastlin' over Numbers.
I never took no comfort when
The year was bald with losses,
A-spekkleatin' on them chaps
That rode them varus hosses.

It never gave my soul a boost
When grief an' it was matin',
Tew figger out that that thar Pope
Wus reely twins with Satan.
I took no stock in countin' up
How menny hed ov cattle
From Egypt's ranches Moses drove;
I never fit a battle
On p'ints that frequently gave rise
Tew pious spat an' grumble,
An' makes the brethren clinch an' yell
In spiritooal rough-an'-tumble.

I never bet on Paul agin
The argyments ov Peter,
I never made the good old Book
A kind ov moral teeter;
Tew pass a choreless hour away,
An' get the evenin' over;
I swallered it jest as it stood,
From cover clar tew cover.

Hain't had no time tew disputate,
Except with axe an' arm,
With stump an' rampike and with stuns,
Upon my half clar'd farm.
An' when sech argyments as them--
Fill six days out ov seven;
A man on Sabbath wants tew crawl
By quiet ways tew heaven.

Again he gets the waggon out,
An' hitches up the sorrels,
An' rides ten miles tew meetin', he
Ain't braced for pious quarrels:
No, sir, he ain't! that waggon rolls
From corduroy to puddle,
An' that thar farmer gets his brains
Inter an easy muddle.

His back is stiff from six days' toil--
So God takes hold an' preaches,
In boughs ov rustlin' maple an'
In whisperin' leaves ov beeches:
Sez He tew that thar farmin' chap
(Likewise tew the old woman),
'I guess I'm built tew comprehend
That you an' her be's human!'

'So jest take hold on this har day,
Recowperate yer muscle;
Let up a mite this day on toil,
'Taint made for holy bustle.
Let them old sorrels jog along,
With mighty slack-like traces;
Half dreamin', es my sunbeams fleck
Their venerable faces.

'I guess they did their share, ov work,
Since Monday's dew was hoary;
Don't try tew lick 'em tew a trot
Upon the road tew Glory!
Jest let 'em laze a spell whar thick
My lily-buds air blowin':
An' whar My trees cast shadders on
My silver creeklet flowin'.

'An' while their red, rough tongues push back
The stems ov reed an' lily,
Jest let 'em dream ov them thar days
When they was colt an' filly,
An' spekkleate, es fetlock deep
They eye my cool creek flowin',
On whar I loosed it from My hand,
Where be its crisp waves goin'.
An' how in snow-white lily cup
I built them yaller fires,
An' bronz'd them reeds that rustle up
Agin the waggon tires.

'An' throw a forrard eye along
Where that bush roadway passes,
A-spekkleating on the chance--
Ov nibbling road-side grasses.
Jest let them lines rest on thar necks--
Restrain yer moral twitters--
An' paste this note inside yer hat--
I talk tew all My critters!

'Be they on four legs or on two,
In broadcloth, scales or feathers,
No matter what may be the length
Ov all their mental tethers:
In ways mayn't suit the minds ov them
That thinks themselves thar betters.
I talk tew them in simple style,
In words ov just three letters,--
Spell'd out in lily-blow an' reed,
In soft winds on them blowin',
In juicy grass by wayside streams,
In coolin' waters flowin'.

'An' so jest let them sorrels laze
My ripplin' silver creek in;
They're listenin' in thar own dumb way,
An' I--Myself--am speakin';
Friend Stebbens, don't you feel your soul
In no sort ov dejection;
You'll get tew meetin' quick enough,
In time for the--collection.'

Little brother dont never wear my hats.....

Little brother don't put on my blue cap that I wear when I stand on the corner
Little brother don't put on my kangol hat the
one I be having on when I be riding in my homeboy
callica
Little brother didn't I tell you don't put
on my feather top hats
As Iwalk in the back door, my little brother was
walking out the front door wearing my red baseball
cap and got shot gap
I told my little brother don't never wear
my red baseball cap

The Shopping Malls Over A Tomb

Don't you know the cars driving away
Sounding like raindrops
On the highway that isn't a dream but is getting louder
And louder as it too becomes a vortex,
Or something else provided for that doesn't
Pay it back—and the otters who are another
Species and who could care nothing at all for
Baseball or any other sports that are never their own,
Still sleeping headily in the manmade estuaries,
Catering to their own hearts in the noontimes
In which all of the housewives I bet are too busy
To come home and see the heavens that bloom there
In their absences like creation myths over the
Shopping malls of a tomb.

Tomorrow Never Dies

Darling Im killed
Im in a puddle on the floor
Waiting for you to return
Oh what a thrill
Fascination gallore
How you tease, how you leave me to burn
Its so deadly my dear
The power of having you near
Until the day
Until the world falls away
Until you say therell be no more goodbyes
I see it in your eyes
Tomorrow never dies
Darling youve won, its no fun
Martinis, girls, and of guns
Its murder on our love affair
But you bet your life every night
While you chase the morning light
Youre not the only spy out there
Its so deadly my dear
The power of wanting you near
Until the day
Until the world falls away
Until you say therell be no more goodbyes
I see it in your eyes
Tomorrow never dies
Until the day
Until the world falls away
Until you say therell be no more goodbyes
I see it in your eyes
Until the day
Until the day
Until the day

I Never Knew It

(daryl simmons)
Now you tell me since youve been away
There was something youve been dying to say
Yes, I thought you had eyes for me
But I never was quite sure
Might funny that you never called
Aint it funny now that youre gone
That you say youre in love with me
Now thats hard for me to believe
Chorus:
Cause I never knew it baby, never knew it baby
I never knew it baby, never knew it baby
That you loved me so
Now I think about you every night
Said you wanted for us to have fun
Whats the matter, cat got your tongue
Its not easy to read your mind
So you bet not take too long
Kind of silly just holding the phone
Aint it silly that Im all alone
When you should be here holding me
Or making good love to me baby, oh so sweet
Chorus
I knew somebody would love me
And satisfy this heart of mine
You never should keep it from me
Youve got to realize a girl would cry and lose her mind
Chorus

Never Any Good

I was never any good at loving you
I was never any good at coming
Through for you
Youre going to feel much better
When you cut me loose forever
I was never any good
Never any good
I was never any good at loving you
I was dying when we met
I bet my life on you
But you called me and I folded
Like you knew Id do
You called my ace, my king, my bluff
Okay, you win, enoughs enough
I was never any good
Never any good
I was never any good at loving you
I was pretty good at taking out
The garbage
Pretty good at holding up the wall
Dealing with the fire and the earthquake
But that dont count
That dont count
That dont count for nothing much at all
I was never any good at loving you
I was just a tourist in your bed looking
At the view
But I cant forget where my lips
Have been
Those holy hills, that deep ravine
I was never any good
Never any good
I was never any good at loving you
I was pretty good at taking out the garbage
Pretty good at holding up the wall
Im sorry for my crimes against
The moonlight
I didnt think
I didnt think
I didnt think the moon would mind at all
I was never any good at loving you
At doing what a woman really wants
A man to do
Youre going to feel much better
When you cut me loose forever
I was never any good
Never any good
I was never any good at loving you

Never Gonna Be Your Lady

I tried to say it politely
I tried to give you a clue
All your gold don't excite me
That old trick just won't do
Still you keep spending money
But there's blood on the pearls
Don't call me babe, don't call me honey
And think you rule my whole world
'Cause I'm never gonna be your lady
I'm not the fool you think I am
I'm never gonna be your lady
And you will never be my man
That's right
Well, listen
I bet your wife don't know nothin'
About your sordid affairs
You've got greed mixed up with lovin'
And love mixed up with flair
But I'm never gonna be your lady
I'm not the fool you think I am
I'm never gonna be your lady
All your funky business
See you in jail
You might buy the other, but baby, I'm not for sale
I'm not for sale...that's right
'Cause I'm never gonna be your lady
I'm not the fool you think I am
Yeah, I'm never gonna be your lady
And you will never be man
No, I'm never gonna be your lady
I'm not the fool you think I am
Oh, I'm never gonna be your lady
And you will never be my man
Never gonna be my man
Now listen to me
That's right, I told you
Never gonna be my man
Let me tell ya somethin boy
You can keep tryin all you want to try
But it's never gonna work
You don?t have a thing that I need
And you sure ain't got a thing I want
Oh, no
Never be your lady

Never Stop

You say shes a very good friend
Circumstances I should understand
But like recurring tide she comes on to you
And looks as though shes looking for a man
Honey dont make yourself so available
My prides in my pocket but I can be reasonable
Still all in all I forsee my own fall
But Ive climbed too far to drop
So stop
I know its your ego keeps the smile on your face
Because you know you got your options open
Shes a beguiling snake and shell keep what she takes
But when she leaves you Ill be the one coping
Honey dont make yourself so available
My prides in my pocket but I can be reasonable
Still through and through I can see clean through you
I know you like to be the one on top
But stop
You will miss my conversation
When youre talking to yourself
Youll be thumbing for advice
Through the pages of the novels on your shelf
Honey dont you see our love togethers the very best bet
Put your focus on me and Ill forgive and forget
Throw away your hidden ace you clever man
And take my hand
You neednt play the part of your image
This is not a one act play were living
And as long as Im here the situation is clear
Itll be 50/50 take and giving
Honey dont you see a lifetimes not much to ask
Take off your costume and remove your mask
If yes is what you will say were gonna start from today
Were gonna take it to the very top
And never stop

Ill Never Get Out Of This World Alive

Recorded by hank williams
Written by hank williams and fred rose
Capo: 1st fret key: f# play: f
Now youre [f] lookin at a man thats gettin kind-a mad
I had lots of luck but its all been bad
No [c7] matter how I struggle and strive
Ill never get out of this world a-[f] live.
My fishin poles broke the creek is full of sand
My woman run away with another man
No matter how I struggle and strive
Ill never get out of this world alive.
A [bb] distant uncle passed away [bb7] and [f] left me quite a batch [f7]
And [bb] I was living high until that fatal [bb7] day
A lawyer [c7] proved I wasnt born
I was only hatched.---[f]
Evrythings agin me and its got me down
If I jumped in the river I would probly drown
No matter how I struggle and strive
Ill never get out of this world alive.
These shabby shoes Im wearin all the time
Are full of holes and nails
And brother if I stepped on a worn out dime
I bet a nickel I could tell you if it was heads or tails.
Im not gonna worry wrinkles in my brow
cause nothins ever gonna be alright nohow
No matter how I struggle and strive
Ill never get out of this world alive.
(additional verses)
I could buy a sunday suit and it would leave me broke
If it had two pair of pants I would burn the coat
No matter how I struggle and strive
Ill never get out of this world alive.
If it was rainin gold I wouldnt stand a chance
I wouldnt have a pocket in my patched up pants
No matter how I struggle and strive
Ill never get out of this world alive.

You Better You Bet

You better you better you bet.
I call you on the telephone my
Voice too rough with cigarettes.
I sometimes think I should just go home
But Im dealing with a memory that never forgets
I love to hear you say my name
Especially when you say yes
I got your body right now on my mind
And I drunk myself blind to the sound of old t-rex
To the sound of old t-rex and whos next
Chorus:
When I say I love you you say you better
You better you better you bet
When I say I need you you say you better
You better you better you bet
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you like a knife
I want those feeble minded axes overthrown
Im not into your passport picture I just like your nose
You welcome me with open arms and open legs
I know only fools have needs but this one never begs
I dont really mind how much you love me
A little is really alright
When you say
Come over and spend the night
Tonight
Tonight
Chorus: (as above)
I lay on the bed with you
We could make some book of records
Your dog keeps licking my nose
And chewing up all those letters
Saying you better
You better bet your life
You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now
You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now.
I showed up late one night
With a neon light for a visa
But knowing Im so eager to fight
Cant make letting me in any easier
I know that I been wearing crazy clothes
And I look pretty crappy sometime
But my body feels so good
And I still sing a razor line everytime.
And when it comes to all night living
I know what Im giving
Ive got it all down to a tee
And its free.
Chorus: (as above)

Never Stop (1986 EP)

Never Stop" is an Emily Saliers song from the 1986 EP. The last
time I heard it performed was in March of 1990, I think. The lyrics
are transcribed directly from the EP lyric sheet. It's odd in that
it's one of the only IG songs that's gender-specific, in the line
"throw away your hidden ace, you clever man."
Never Stop
You say she's a very good friend,
Circumstances I should understand.
But like recurring tide she comes on to you
And looks as though she's looking for a man
Honey, Don't make yourself so available
My pride's in my pocket, but I can be reasonable
Still, all in all, I forsee my own fall
But I've climbed too far to drop, so stop
I know it's your ego puts the smile on your face
Because you know you got your options open
She's a beguiling snake and she'll keep what she takes
But when she leaves you, I'll be the one coping
Honey, don't make yourself so available
My pride's in my pocket, but I can be reasonable
Still, through and through I can see clean through you
I know you like to be the one on top, but stop!
You will miss my conversation when you're talking to yourself
You'll be thumbing for advice through the pages of the novels on your
shelf
Honey, don't you see our love together's the very best bet
Put your focus on me and I'll forgive and forget
Throw away your hidden ace, you clever man, take my hand
You needn't play the part of your image
This is not a one act play we're living
As long as I'm here the situation is clear
It'll be 50/50 take and giving
Honey don't you see a lifetime's not much to ask
take off your costume and remove your mask
If yes is what you will say we're gonna satrt from today
We're gonna take it to the very top
Never stop

Thingsll Never Change

Ah yeah..(ah yeah)..its real.
Gonna put it down. all these little crime thangs,
Homeless, the world is crazy bwoy
Its like this
Its the way it is
Heavy out there.. its heavy.
Verse 1
Was I really such a bad child that I deserved to get hit with boards
And whooped with extension cords?
Did you forget that I was your creation,
And all I wanted from you all was love, hope, and motivation?
Son, youre disrespectful and youre talking back,
Get out my face, kicked me out the house
And wouldnt even let me plead my case.
Now Im homeless and Im freezing like the morgue,
The only thing keepin me alive is the lord
Needless to say its times like this Id rather be locked up then
Drinkin water out my hands and eatin out of garbage cans
Can I come back home, huh could i?
Son, youre on your own, why should i?
Chorus
Thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
Nobodys even concerned
Some thingsll never change, thats just the way it is
When will we ever learn?
Verse 2
Huh. three years from now, I think Im gon be straight, (straight)
I put my name on the list for section 8
Tried out for the army but I was flat footed,
Didnt do no harm to me, cuz I was used to it
If I apply for some work, lets make a bet,
Ill get the nine
Cuz I dont know about the internet
What do you think we need to do to change about this nation?
Need to provide more jobs and better education
Nuclear weapons (puh) should be stopping crimes,
Already got enough to blow the world up
A thousand times
The birds and the bees, deadly disease,
Teenage pregnancies, stds
Chorus
Verse 3
A-wuh a wait a minute, I hear sirens
Oh thats the couple down the street
Domestic violence
Either them or the little girl in 306
Shes always telling everyone that she gon slice her wrists
I guess thats the way it is in the life of sin
Where youll prolly end up dead, or in the pen
But my family aint no better than the next
My auntie brenda turned her own sister in
For writing bad checks
And save folks try to hit you where it hurts
Knowin they the biggest hypocrites in the church
We need to give our minds a bath and
Do some scrubbin
Stop the hate and start the lovin
Chorus (4x)

Bet Shes Not Your Girlfriend

(tennant/lowe)
---------------
(whisper whisper whisper whisper)
Whisper round the town,
cause youre my friend and thats the end
For youre the only one in town
Who they will beg to hang around with
Youre so beautiful and calm
But with an attitude that says:
Hands-off, youre just not good enough
Every boy and man feeling lonely
Cant understand why youd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:
(girlfriend) bet shes not your girlfriend, oh no,
(oh oh oh girlfriend) you better make her happy
(oh oh oh girlfriend) bet shes not your girlfriend, oh no,
(oh oh oh girlfriend) you better make her happy
Well, that says maybe, in a way, but its okay
We are touche, while they stare in front of us
They draw away, as if to say:
Who are these people anyway?
How dare they confront us?
Every boy and man feeling lonely
Cant understand why youd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:
(girlfriend) bet shes not your girlfriend, oh no,
(oh oh oh girlfriend) you better make her happy
(oh oh oh girlfriend) bet shes not your girlfriend, oh no,
(oh oh oh girlfriend) you better make her happy
Oh no no no
Oh no no no
(girlfriend oh oh oh girlfriend
Oh oh oh girlfriend oh oh oh girlfriend)
Id rather die, than satisfy their curiousity
Im kind of shy and dry, and verging on ugly
They wonder what that I have got, that they have not
Theyll never understand that none of that matters
Every boy and man feeling lonely
Cant understand why youd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:
(girlfriend) bet shes not your girlfriend, oh no,
(oh oh oh girlfriend) you better make her happy
(oh oh oh girlfriend) bet shes not your girlfriend, oh no,
(oh oh oh girlfriend) you better make her happy
(oh oh oh girlfriend oh oh oh girlfriend
Oh oh oh girlfriend)
Bet shes not your, bet shes not your,
Bet shes not your,bet shes not your,
(oh oh oh girlfriend)
Bet shes not your girlfriend, oh no
(oh oh oh girlfriend) bet shes not your girlfriend
(oh oh oh girlfriend) you better make her happy
(oh oh oh girlfriend) bet shes not your girlfriend
(oh oh oh girlfriend) you better make her happy
Bet shes not your girlfriend
