Oor Rabbie's The Man For A' That

The Twenty Fifth of January 1759,
A talent was born who'll forever shine,
Though his life would be full of twists and turns,
There'd be no better writer than our own Robert Burns.

Rabbie Burns our national bard,
If you gave him an inch he'd take a yard,
His love of women caused a few stares,
As he carried on his illicit affairs.

He'd have loved to have been a man of leisure,
Surrounded by women that was his pleasure,
Contrary to what some people may think,
He was never that fond of the demon drink.

For the whole of his life he was forever in vogue,
A Jack the lad a loveable rogue
But one thing you can never take away,
Is the words he wrote will forever hold sway.

'‘Scots Wha Hae'' is a poignant verse,
When read, in it's content you will soon immerse,
That is the gift of a brilliant writer,
They can make you feel you are that fighter.

With his God given talent for poems and songs,
In our memories forever is where he belongs,
He tragically died just aged thiry seven,
The Lord must have needed his talents in heaven.

The day of his funeral was not quite forlorn,
On that very day his son Maxwell was born,
As Rabbie would've said, before I go,
Trust one of my children to steal the show.

His poems and songs forever sublime,
Have proven they can stand the test of time,
Over two hundred years after his death,
His words are as popular as Shakespeares Macbeth.

The titles he wrote like''Auld Lang Syne''
Mean his popularity will never decline,
His writings will live forever more,
The poems and songs will keep him to the fore.

If Rabbie Burns were alive today,
I think I know just what he would say,
The women are gorgeous the worlds deranged,
From my time till now nothing much has changed.

So as you sit and enjoy your haggis dinner,
Think of the poet not the sinner,
So all please stand and doff your hat,

‘' Oor Rabbie's The man For A' That ‘'

Something You Can't Take Away

All too soon we were blown upon our seperate ways again
And our warm summer dreams
Joined the fallen leaves that tumbled in the wind
With the echoes and traces of voices and faces
And places that I've left behind
But there's times in the morning
And there's times at the close of day
When your memory comes easy as smiling
And that's something they can't take away
I may die without ever knowing happiness again
Leaving nothing behind but a line of lonely footprints in the sand
But I know that wherever I go, I will never trade anything I'll ever find
For the times in the morning and the times at the close of day
When your memory comes easy as smiling, and that's something they can't take away
When your memory comes easy as smiling, and that's something they can't take away

One Thing

One thing that I got for you
Is the one thing that you never do
One thing makes you feel brand new
Is the one thing that youre coming to
Just the one thing gets you in the mood
You call my number in the middle of the night
To tell me nothing else can make you feel alright
But it rings, you hang it up, and call me back again
One thing that I got for you
Is the one thing that you never do
One thing that youve got to choose
Is the one thing you can never lose
Just the one thing that fits your attitude
You call my name in the middle of the night
When youre making love and it feels alright
But its him, not me, cant you see, a shot of reality
I know what youre doing, I know what youre doing
I know what you want, I know what you wanted to do
I know when the lights go out, I know when the lights go out
One thing that I got for you
Is the one thing you never do
Just the one thing that gets you in the mood
Just the one thing that fits your attitude
One thing is scorning pain
Just the one thing.

Never Get Away From Me

I was a real Casanova in my home town
Never really thought about settling down
That is until, you came around
Yeah, it's been a few years but I remember it well
I was a rowdy no-gooder
You were hotter than hell
I spent all my time
Hot on your trail
You could've run through the mountains
Could've sailed across the deep blue sea
I knew from the start
Couldn't let you get away from me
Well your mama and your daddy
They didn't approve
They told you me was trash and I was born to lose
But that didn't faze me
I was gonna have you
So I begged and I pleaded
Something I'd never done
And sure as tomorrow has a rising sun
There was no mistake
Honey, you were the one
You could've run through the mountains
Could've sailed across the deep blue sea
But one thing's for sure
You would never get away from me
(Bridge)
The sweetest things in life take you by surprise
Like the heaven I see looking in your eyes
Though you weren't sure how an outlaw's love would be
I made up my mind not to let you get away from me (End of Bridge)
As we get a little closer to our rocking chairs
I think back on the good times that we have shared
And how our love has grown
Down through the years
So snuggle up to me baby turn out the lights
There's no where on this earth I'd rather be tonight
Then lying in your arms
Holding you tight
As time roll's by one thing's still plain to see
I'd have been a fool to let you get away from me
Yeah, yeah you could've run through the mountains
Could've sailed across the deep blue sea
But I'd have been a fool to let you get away from me.

Stand By Me

Made a meal and threw it up on sunday,
Ive, got a lot of things to learn,
Said I would and I believe in one day,
Before my heart starts to burn.
So whats the matter with you,
Sing me something new,
Dont you know the cold and wind and rain dont know,
They only seem to come and go, away.
Times are hard when things have got no meaning,
Ive found a key upon the floor,
Maybe you and I will not believe in,
The thing we find behind the door.
So whats the matter with you,
Sing me something new,
Dont you know the cold and wind and rain dont know,
They only seem to come and go away.
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows,
Yeah nobody knows,
The way its gonna be.
If your leaving will you take me with you,
Im tired of talking on my phone,
There is one thing I can never give you,
My heart will never be your home,
So whats the matter with you,
Sing me something new,
Dont you know the cold and wind and rain dont know,
They only seem to come and go, away.
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows, yeah nobody knows,
The way its gonna be.
The way its gonna be, yeah.
Maybe I can see, yeah,
But dont you know the cold and wind and rain dont know
They only seem to come and go, away.
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows the way its gonna be,
Stand by me,
Nobody knows,
Yeah God only knows,
The way its gonna be.

Voices

Listen to the rain fallin' day by day
Listen to the rain fallin' day by day by day
Hey
I hear you calling, voices are here again
I hear you whisper, taking control of me
Watch the dancing shadows run away
All alone once again, afraid
All these faces, changing their shapes on me
I said laid it in my own world, will it ever be free?
Haunted figures around me, I want em' to stay
There always there to protect me, this is one thing you can't take away
Listen to the rain fallin' day by day
Listen to the rain fallin' day by day by day
Yeah!
I hear you calling, voices are here again
I hear you whisper in my own mind, will it ever change?

You Can't Walk Away From Love

Here I am before you
Naked in your eyes
Hoping with each kiss
You will never see through my disguise
I have been made to believe
That no one could love me for me
The good and the bad
First to the last
No matter the cost
No matter the past
Your eyes only see what they wanna see
Your heart makes the truth what you want to believe
Passion turns pain into ecstasy
You can't walk away from love
Loving you more than I do myself
Revealing the things I would never tell
Daring to risk even life itself
You can't walk away from love
There will be no other
Lips against my skin
No need to regret
How can pleasure ever be a sin
I tried to make you believe
You meant almost nothing to me
Through all the lies
Chasing a dream
Finding at last
The woman in me
Your eyes only see what they wanna see
Your heart makes the truth what you want to believe
Passion turns pain into ecstasy
You can't walk away from love
Loving you more than I do myself
Revealing the things I would never tell
Daring to risk even life itself
You can't walk away from love

Money You Can't Take With You When You Die

Money you can't take with you when you die
So before you die I hope you decide
To whom you are going to live your money to
I hope that you are not going to spend all
That money on yourself

Ohmstedt

Spread out your love and spread out your wisdom around,
And share your peace and your care along with me;
For i am Ohmstedt withz the speech of love,
But the head of the cornerstone is now like the muse of your love.

I've got something which they can never take away from me!
But the fire of hatred is now burning everywhere! !
And they can't stop the time around us on this earth,
For your sweet love is what makes me living on and on.

Can't Stay Away From You

Time flies
When you're having fun
I heard somebody say
But if all I've been is fun
Then baby let me go
Don't wanna be in your way
And I don't wanna be your second choice
Don't wanna be just your friend
You keep telling me that you're not in love
You wanna throw it all away

But I can't stay away from you
I don't wanna let you go
And though it's killing me that's true
There's just some things I can't control

Your love is slipping through my hands
And though I've heard it all before
I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you

Hold on to every beat of hope

This can only be one thing..............

Can you believe it?
I'd never understand
Why you'd take my heart
An I'd take your hand

This can only be one thing

I never thought i'd reach you
You answer all my prayers
What we've got is heaven
You've cleared all my cares

This can only be one thing

Words will never tell you
What you've given me
How you make me feel
And what you let me be

This can only be one thing

I'm gonna grow old with you
We'll be together at the end
An all the way through
This is not pretend

This can only be one thing.
Love

Can You Find Your Way Out, Alone

It is not alright...
To do as you please.
Because you are grown.
And I am not your daddy.

No.
It is not alright...
To disrespect me,
In front of your friends.
And you expect me to say nothing,
But sit and grin.

It's not alright...
To come home late.
After what you describe,
As a 'dinner' date.
And then within my listening distance...
Mumble under your breath,
About your feeling trapped.
And you wish to seek an end.

Guess what?
I wouldn't want you to go through,
More of that.

I'll take back my car keys.
The house keys.
My credit cards too!
Now...
You can just leave.

There is one thing I 'can' say about you...
I would never accuse you of being a fool.
You have a way of making those announcements,
Yourself.

Should I show you where to exit?
Or can you find your way out,
Alone.

Never Take The Place Of Your Man

It was only last june when her old man ran away
She couldnt stop cryin, she knew he was gone to stay
10:35 on a lonely friday night
She was standin by the fire - unh - she was lookin alright
I asked her if she wanted to dance and she said
All she wanted was a good man who wanted to know if I thought I was qualified
I said baby dont waste your time
I know whats on your mind
I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I can never take the place of your man
It hurt me so bad when I saw the tears in her eyes
She was all he ever wanted and now she wanted to die
He left her with a baby and another one on the way
She couldnt stop cryin she knew he was gone to stay
She asked me if we couldnt be friends and I said
Oh honey baby thats ok you know and I know, know, know you wouldnt be satisfied
I said baby dont waste your time
And I know whats on your mind
I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I could never take the place of your man
I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I could never take the place of your man
I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I could never take the place of your man
La la la oh oh whoa
Never take the place of your man
Thats all I need girl
Is a one night, one night, one night stand
I dont wanna be like a steak in your mind
Oh girl if you need a friend Im there by your side
Sha la la la sha la la
Sha la la la sha la la

One Thing We Should know About Terrorism

There's one thing we should know about terrorism it will not be beaten by force
But we can lessen the threat of it by treating it at it's source
Like in our attitude to those different to us since the sort of a Human World we live in we help to create
Since racism and cultural divisions only does give rise to hate
For to rid the World of terrorism there is not any plan
For if people wish to harm you they most certainly can
Why do some people hate us so much that they want to do us ill
That they even sacrifice their own lives in order us to kill?
This is the question we must ask ourselves and the answer well may be
That those we choose to Govern us create for us an enemy
And in order for to cling to power fear and paranoia of those different they do spread
And their awful war on terror have left a million people dead
But by treating the source of terrorism we may well be on our way
To a more peaceful World to live in on a not too distant day.

You Can Never Go Home

I dont know what Im searching for
I never have opened the door,
Tomorrow might find me at last,
Turning my back on the past,
But, time will tell, of stars that fell,
A million years ago.
Memories can never take you back, home, sweet home.
You can never go home anymore.
All my life I never really knew me till today,
Now I know why, Im just another step along the way,
I lie awake for hours, Im just waiting for the sun.
When the journey we are making has begun,
Dont deny the feeling that is stealing through your heart,
Every happy ending needs to have a start.
All my life I never really knew me till today,
Now I know why, Im just another step along the way,
Weep no more for treasures youve been searching for in vain.
cos the truth is gently falling with the rain,
High above the forest lie the pastures of the sun,
Where the two that learned the secret are now one.
I dont know what Im searching for
I never have opened the door,
Tomorrow might find me at last,
Turning my back on the past,
But, time will tell, of stars that fell,
A million years ago.
Memories can never take you back, home, sweet home.
You can never go home anymore.

I Can't Ever Get Enough Of You

Well I know that I have only ever held your hand
But just one touch is more than enough to understand
There's a master plan
And although I know I don't believe in destiny
Maybe it found me
Now my world is filled with so many things
But nothing compares to the touch of your skin
There's a symphony
And a melody that plays whenever you're around
I think I've been found

I can see the sun
And I can feel the rain
I can hear the wind call your name
I can feel your love
But there's one thing I can't do
I can't ever get enough of you

Now I know that in the past I've been much too keen
But your eyes are the kindest that I've ever seen
I guess there are some things you just know
There's a voice inside telling me to hold on
And never let you go
There's a tune that plays
It's a sacred sound
It's a symphony I hear whenever you're around
Now my world is filled
With a whisper of love and a promise of tomorrow

I can see the sun
And I can feel the rain
I can hear the wind call your name
I can feel your love
But there's one thing I can't do
I can't ever get enough of you

When we make love I lose track of time
I can't count all the colors I see in your eyes
And while your heart beats in mine

The Real Thing

Amanda, I know what youre thinking,
You and I have much to say,
And youve been making me crazy,
Trying to understand
But its impossible at your age.
I know I said Ill always try,
But youre going to bed alone again tonight,
And you lie there in the dark and wonder why.
I did it for you, and the boys,
Because love should teach you joy,
And not the imitation,
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
I did it for you, and for me,
And because I still believe,
Theres only one thing,
You can never give up,
Never compromise on,
And thats the real thing you need in love.
Youre so afraid your life is over,
And nothing I can say can change your mind.
How can anybody be so selfish,
And treat you all so cruel,
The woman screamed at me and cried.
Ill always hold you in my soul,
And Im never going to leave you all alone
But your daddy doesnt live here anymore.
I did it for you, and the boys,
Because love should teach you joy,
And not the imitation,
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
I did it for you, and for me,
And because I still believe,
Theres only one thing,
That you can never give up,
Never compromise on,
And thats the real thing you need in love.
Everybodys got a boat upon the ocean,
Not everybodys sailing out to sea,
And is there someone there for me?
Im ready to believe.
I did it for you, and the boys,
Because love should teach you joy,
And not the imitation,
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
I did it for you, and for me,
And because I still believe,
Theres only one thing,
That you can never give up,
Never compromise on,
And thats the real thing you need in love.

Tests And Homework And Quizzes AND SCHOOL

You know that if there was one thing,
That you could take from school,
It wouldn't be art or math or history,
It would be work.

Those ugly things you want to blow up,
and smash,
and burn,
and crinkle,
and rip,
and tear,
and throw out.

Those things that make you have to remember,
all the stuff you learned before,
and to study, study, study,
'till your eyes fall out.

“Oh, sorry I wasn't paying attention”
and
'Did we learn this? '
never helps when the test monster gives you the paper, And wishes you well.

But you know she doesn't mean that.
She doesn't want us to do good,
she just wants us to hurry so she can give us another test.

And then it's June!
Good that the year's almost over,
But bad 'cause........
FINAL EXAMS

Oh no! ! !
The mother of all tests,
And what did you say? We have to take more than one!
I'm done for.

Your sitting there,
hand clenched on the pencil,
face sweating,
and then BINGO!
You get the answer.

You jump up and scream,
in the silent classroom.

You shout out with joy 'cause they’re all over.
No more exams, or quizzes, or tests, or homework.

You bring up you paper and sit back down.
Then it happens.

Excuse me please come up to the front of the room
Right then and there
DETENTION!

No it’s not detention?
Whoo Hoo! ! ! !

It’s homework
Well that’s just as bad.

You think, No. No. You didn't just say there's still homework? ?
And we have to do it everyday of the summer! !

You have to be kidding me.
“Oh, just strike me down right here and save me from homework! ! “

But wait,
You say it's fun homework,
BLAH,
homework can't be fun,
or joyous,
or exciting,
or awesome,
or amusing,
or entertaining,
JUST HORRIBLE! ! !

“So we have to do fun homework? ? “
“What is it? “

It is to have fun?
And stay safe? ?

“No, you must be kidding.”

Your not kidding! Really! ! Cool! !
Well see you next year!
If I can stop having fun and come back!

GOOD BYE SCHOOL AND TESTS! ! !

Don't Take Her From Me

Roy orbison
If you don't really love her
Don't take her from me
Because i really love her
And need her desperately
If you don't plan to give
All your love, for as long as you should live
Don't take her from me
If she's not something special
Don't take her from me
Because she's something special to me
Can't you see?
If she's not number one
Every day, till your whole life is done
Don't take her from me
There is only one for me
She is all there could ever be
So don't take her from me
