    I saw you dance last night, they weren't here
    I saw your blue shirt, your short hair
    Big hips, tight jeans, white teeth, yellow hair
    And freckles...

    Might have been funnier if you'd changed the words between the two postings.

    Maybe substitute "feckless" for "freckles" or something...:cool:

    Heh - "yellow teeth, white hair, and wrinkles", perhaps.

    One of my all-time favorite songs - "How Soon Is Now" by The Smiths:

    "You shut your mouth
    How can you say
    I go about things the wrong way?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like everybody else does"


    And also

    "There's a club if you'd like to go
    You could meet somebody who really loves you
    So you go and you stand on your own
    And you leave on your own
    And you go home and you cry
    And you want to die"

    My favorite line:

    When you say it's gonna happen "now"
    Well when exactly do you mean?

    Yeah, love that one too.

    In fact I started off intending to quote different lines:

    "I am the son
    And the heir
    Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
    I am the son and heir
    Of nothing in particular"


    But then when I looked up the full lyrics, I realized I liked a few other lines even better.

    If anyone's interested, here's a link to the full set of lyrics - https://genius.com/The-smiths-how-soon-is-now-lyrics.

    PS - You might recognize the song even if you don't know The Smiths, as it's been sampled a number of times, and one cover of it was even the theme song for "Charmed", a fact which makes my skin crawl...

    Thousands of people would die for a chance to be alone
    And there are millions more who'd kill if they thought they could make a friend

    But the only thing we share
    Is the slightest nod as we're passing on the stairs"

    "Showing Ta Ta's on the TV is okay...I wanna be okay too.
    Having my picture in a magazine make me special, how special are you?"

    Waiting for the salty water to cover up my ears
    But every time the tide come in to take me home
    I get scared and I'm sitting here alone"

    Don't want my mp3

    You only get five percent
    You used to get it all

    I don't care what's on TV
    I just want to drink 'til I can't see
