We were in the car driving home the other night and Lenny Kravitz’s “American Woman” was on the radio. I started singing…”American woman, stay away from meeeee” and from the back seat I hear, “Mom is a naked woman, when she sleeeeeeps”. Oh.my.God. I was laughing so hard I almost crashed the car.

It’s time for yet another meme. I snagged this one from Taoist Biker. Sorry, I’m a thief, we all know that by now. But he, apparently, stole it as well so I’m not feeling terribly bad about my thievery. This one’s great fun because you all get to play along. Woo hoo. The rules are as such:

1. Put your mp3 player or music player on your computer on random.
2. Post the first four lines from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song (skip repeat artists).
3. Post and let everyone you know guess (in the comments!) what song and artist the lines come from.
4. Please play fair. Don’t be a dirty rotten cheater and Google the lyrics!

I have a feeling mine are going to be pretty darn easy to guess, but who knows, maybe I’ll stump you. Good luck everyone. Have fun!

When she was three
Her Barbies always did it on the first date
Now she’s with me
There’s never any need for them to demonstrate

I backed my car into a cop car, the other day
Well he just drove off, sometimes life’s ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much, oh what did I say
Well you just laughed it off, it was all ok

We’ve never need forgiveness
Left home at seventeen
Raised up on hate
To a life that’s second rate

Girl of sixteen, whole life ahead of her
Slashed her wrists, bored with life
Didn’t succeed, thank the Lord
For small mercies

See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
Heads turning as the lights flashing out it’s so bright
Then walk right out to the fourline track
There’s a camera rolling on her back, on her back

You pretend you’re high
You pretend you’re bored
You pretend you’re anything
Just to be adored

Some expression in your eyes
Overtook me by surprise
Where was I how was I to know’
How can we drive to a movie show

It’s been pretty simple so far, vacation in Athens is calling me
And knock, knock, knock on wood, I thought I’d left you behind
Heaven is yours, heaven is yours, heaven’s yours where I live
The thought of the catacombs left my soul at home

Alcohol on my hands, I got plans to ditch myself and get outside
Dancing women throwing plates, decapitating their laughing dates
Swirling chickens caught in flight, out of focus and much to bright
Coming down, shiny teeth, game show suckers trying to breathe

Crazy rides rockets
Who has a magic wand
Empty out your pockets
Words without a song

Escape is on your mind again
Escape to a far away land
At times it seems there is no end
To long hard nights of drinking

I would swallow my pride,
I would choke on the rinds,
but the lack thereof would leave me empty inside,
swallow my doubt

There’s a brand new dance but I don’t know its name
That people from bad homes do again and again
Its big and its bland full of tension and fear
They do it over there but we don’t do it here

I sing myself to sleep
A song from the darkest hour
Secrets I can’t keep
Inside of the day

Hey, you’re just too funky for me,
I gotta get inside of you,
And I’ll show you heaven if you let me.
Hey you just too funky for me,

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what’s best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes

Let me tell ya’ll what it’s like
Being male, middle class and white
It’s a bitch, if you don’t believe
Listen up to my new cd

(You’ve got the power in there)
(Waving your wand in the air)
Time after time those fanatical minds
Try to rule all the world

If I ask you difficult questions
If I make improper suggestions
Would you find that a risk to your health
Would you put me up on the bookself

Throw away the radio
Suitcase…Keeps you awake
Hide the telephone, the telephone
Telephone in case…You realize that…
