If you live it up, you won’t live it down.

Talking to myself and feeling old
Sometimes I’d like to quit, nothing ever seems to fit
Hanging around, nothing to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.

I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you

Go to the bottom of the bottle and look at the stars.

Invisible airwaves crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle with the energy
Emotional feedback on a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price, almost free

I love you too much to ever start liking you,
So let’s just let the story kind of end.
I love you too much to ever start liking you,
So don’t expect me to be your friend.

Misheard / misremembered lyric. For 50 years I have treasured the savagery of these lyrics

But I left Tennessee in a hurry, dear
In the same way that I’m leaving you
Because love is mainly just memories
And everyone’s got one of you
So when I’m gone, I’ll be glad to love you

Brand New Tennessee Waltz. Mathew’s Southern Comfort

But when I went to check the lyrics before posting it turned out that the critical line was actually

And everyone’s got him a few

A great disappointment. I prefer my incorrect version.

I’ve been to many places in my life and times,
I’ve sung a lot of songs, I’ve made some bad rhymes.
I’ve acted out my life in stages with ten thousand people watching,
But we’re alone now and I’m singing this song for you.

Have you seen the stars tonight?
Would you like to go up on A deck and look at them with me?

I need a pretty little girl, to dance to old Merle,
And a little bit of Cash to get me through those swinging doors.

Friends don’t call like they used to for reasons not unkind
If there’s anything we can do rings hollow down a telephone line

I weep for you
It’s what I do
Forty miles from nowhere
At the bottom of the world

Rodney Crowell

Yeah, my telephone is ringing,
they told me it was Chairman Mao.
I don’t care who it is,
I just don’t want to talk to him now.

One last thing before I quit
I never wanted any more than I could fit into my head
I still remember every single word you said

I don’t need a miracle Lord
Just a little luck will do

REK

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.

What’s the ugliest part of your body?
Some say your nose
Some say your toes
But I think it’s YOUR MIND
