Especially "Carry On My Wayward Son." Those lyrics rocked.

I like this one becuase its just a great song that ppl can actually realte to even tho they wud never admit it...Its Called "Enter Sandman" and is performed by Metallica.



Say your prayers little one
Dont forget, my son
To include everyone

Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Somethings wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they arent of snow white

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragons fire
And of things that will bite

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take

Hush little baby, dont say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
Its just the beast under your bed,
In your closet, in your head

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Were off to never never land

One of my favourites by Pink Floyd.

A bit of "Wish you were here"


How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.


Just remembered that "If" was a Floyd song too Karen.

Pink Floyd sang If??? LOL Who a thunk.. I never paid any attention Just love the song One of my favorites..Thanks Bee!

If a picture paints a thousand words
then why can't I paint you..
The words will never show
the you I've come to know..
If the world should stop revolving
spinning slowly down to die..
I'd spend the end with you.. and
when the world was through.... Then one..
by one... the stars would all go out..
and you and I.. would simply fly away......

"Some guys play football,
Others drive fast cars,
Some fly model aeroplanes,
Or gaze up at the stars,
Some go bungee jumping
Some make wooden toys,
Others take up drumming,
And make a lot of noise

All of these are normal,
But I like other things,
Like catching Daddy Long Legs,
And biting off their wings,
But there's one thing that I like best,
It really is such fun,
That's how I got my nickname,
Rodent-rutter number one

chorus]
Pass me another hamster,
Don't let it escape.
Pass me another hamster,
And 1 more reel of Sellotape"

"If" was written by David Gates & first recorded by his own group, Bread. The other members of Bread were James Griffin, Robb Royer, Michael Botts and Larry Krechtel (although the last 2 were not founder-members).

The song "If" was on the album "Manna", which was released in 1971. It was their 2nd album - the 1st simply being called "Bread".

Bread disbanded in 1973 but reformed in 1977 to release the album "Baby I'm A Want You".

Among other notable songs penned by David Gates are "Everything I Own" (contrary to popular belief, this song was written about his father not his ex-wife), "Guitar Man" & "Make It With You".

Other artists that David Gates worked with are Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin and Merle Haggard.

Ah, so we have two "If's"

The Floyd one was on the album Atom Heart Mother circa 1970 included the lyrics

If I were a swan I'd be gone,
If I were a train I'd be late,
And if I were a good man,
I'd talk with you more often that I do.

So, which one Karen...... [;D]

The point of a dam is to clog a dam? I don't think that's right.

The reason beavers build dams is to create a pool so they can have the entrance to their lodge underwater.
