Aaaaand it's been awhile since I did the lyric meme, and I'm booooored. So! You know the drill, 20 songs, random select, favourite lyrics, I post 'em, you guess artist & title.
1. I'm asking you please no!
It isn't right, it isn't fair,
there was no parking anywhere!The Parking Ticket/No Parking - OMWFsennical
promptly followed by a good half dozen others including the information that Marti Noxon sings this, which I never knew!
2. Now when the radical priest come to get me released
We was all on the cover of Newsweek.Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard - Paul Simonmanic_subbie
3. And if I seem awful distrusting I am
You said you wouldn't do it again,
You said we wouldn't do it again.
Time that you go,
Time for you to see,
You're not helping yourself by hurting me.Better - Brooke Frasershoeless_girl
4. Laughing on the bus
Playing games with the faces
She said the man in the gaberdine suit was a spy;
I said, be careful, his bowtie is really a camera.America - Simon & Garfunkel

When I go I'm going like Elsie!Cabaret - Liza Minelli (Cabaret OST)keymash

You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen.Your Song - Ewan McGregor et al (Moulin Rouge OST)keymash
13. And sappy songs about sex and cheating
Bland accounts of two lovers meeting
Make me want to give mankind a beating.
And you might say it's self-destructive,
But you see I'd kick the bucket
Fifty times before I'd kick the habit.Bad Habit - The Dresden Dollsmanic_subbie
14. To be together in this air we breathe,
You say forever, but I know you've gotta go
What is it you are, are you a dream?
15. And though you say that it's OK with you
Although today has run away from you
I won't believe you tonight.
16. But now she might leave
Like she's threatened before

Here we are now, entertain us. Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvanakeymash
Every time I do this meme I remember just how much Simon & Garfunkel I have on here (about one and a half gigs, which is not insignificant on a 40G harddrive.) I, um, cheat with this meme, and only put on the first two S&G songs. :P Otherwise it would be about half them - I don't know why, as I do have another 15 or so gigs of, you know, different artists. Just one of those things, I guess.
