“Check Yes or No” by George Strait

It started way back in third grade
I used to sit beside Emmylou Hayes
A pink dress, a matching bow, and her ponytail
She kissed me on the school bus but told me not to tell

Next day I chased her around the playground
Cross the monkey bars to the merry-go-round
And Emmylou got caught passing me a note
Before the teacher took it I read what she wrote

Do you love me do you want to be my friend
And if you do
Well then don’t be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes
Check yes or no

Now we’re grown up and she’s my wife
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes
Not much has changed I still chase Emmylou
Up and down the hall around the bed in our room
Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years together she still gets to me
Can’t believe it’s been that long ago
When we got started with just a little note

Do you love me do you want to be my friend
And if you do
Well then don’t be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes
Check yes or no

“Wrapped Around” by Brad Paisley

Every day I clock out
And head straight to her house
We cuddle up on the couch
But it always ends the same ole way

I’m drivin’ home and it’s incredibly late
Somethin’s got to change, ’cause

I’ve been wrapped around her finger
Since the first time we went out
Every day, and every night she’s all I think about
I need that girl beside me
When the lights go out
I think it’s time to put a ring on the finger
I’m wrapped around

Went to the bank took out a loan
Went and bought the perfect stone
Called up her dad on the phone
I’m takin’ him to dinner Sunday night
I’ve never been so nervous in my life
I want to do this right, ’cause

I’ve been wrapped around her finger
Since the first time we went out
Every day, and every night she’s all I think about
I need that girl beside me
When the lights go out
I think it’s time to put a ring on the finger
I’m wrapped around

Yes sir I love her very much
I know it’s only been seven months
But that’s long enough, ’cause

I’ve been wrapped around her finger
Since the first time we went out
Every day, and every night she’s all I think about
I need that girl beside me
When the lights go out
I think it’s time to put a ring on the finger
I’m wrapped around

I think it’s time to put a ring on the finger
I’m wrapped around

“Wrapped Around Your Finger” by the Police

You consider me the young apprentice
Caught between the Scylla and Charibdes
Hypnotized by you if I should linger
Staring at the ring around your finger

I have only come here seeking knowledge
Things they would not teach me of in college
I can see the destiny you sold
Turned into a shining band of gold

I’ll be wrapped around your finger
I’ll be wrapped around your finger
Mephistopheles is not your name
I know what you’re up to just the same
I will listen hard to your tuition
You will see it come to its fruition
I’ll be wrapped around your finger
I’ll be wrapped around your finger

Devil and the deep blue sea behind me
Vanish in the air you’ll never find me
I will turn your face to alabaster
When you’ll find your servant is your master

You’ll be wrapped around my finger
You’ll be wrapped around my finger
You’ll be wrapped around my finger

“Runaround Sue” by Dion

Here’s my story it’s sad but true
It’s about a girl that I once knew
She took my love then ran around
With ev’ry single guy in town

Hayp hayp
Bum da hady hady
Hayp hayp
Bum da hady hady
Hayp hayp
Bum da hady hady

I should have known it from the very start
This girl will leave me with a broken heart
Now listen people what I’m telling you
A-keep away from a Runaround sue

Hayp hayp
Bum da hady hady
Hayp hayp
Bum da hady hady
Hayp hayp
Bum da hady hady gayp oh

I miss her lips and the smile on her face
The touch of her hair and this girl’s warm embrace
So if you don’t want to cry like I do
A-keep away from a Runaround Sue

She likes to travel round
She’ll love you but she’ll put you down
Now people let me put you wise
Sue goes out with other guys

Here’s the moral and the story
From the guy who knows
I fell in love and my love still grows
Ask any fool that she ever knew
They’ll say, keep away from a-runaround Sue

“I Think I’m Paranoid” by Garbage

You can look but you can’t touch
I don’t think I like you much
Heaven knows what a girl can do
Heaven knows what you’ve got to prove

I think I’m paranoid and complicated
I think I’m paranoid, manipulate it

Bend me, break me
Anyway you need me
All I want is you

Bend me, break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

I fall down just to give you a thrill
Prop me up with another pill
If I should fail, if I should fold
I nailed my faith to the sticking pole

I think I’m paranoid, manipulate it
I think I’m paranoid, too complicated

Bend me, break me
Anyway you need me
All I want is you

Bend me, break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

I think I’m paranoid
I think I’m paranoid

Bend me, break me
Anyway you need me
All I want is you

Bend me, break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

Steal me, deal me, anyway you heal me
Maim me, tame me, you can never change me
Love me, like me, come ahead and fight me
Please me, tease me, go ahead and leave me

Bend me, break me
Anyway you need me
As long as I want you baby, it’s alright

Bend me, break me
Anyway you need me
As long as I want you baby, it’s alright

“Fly” by Sugar Ray

All around the world statues crumble for me
Who knows how long I’ve loved you
Everywhere I go people stop and they see
Twenty-five years old my mother God rest her soul

I just wanna fly
Put your arms around me, baby
Put your arms around me, baby
I just wanna fly
Put your arms around me, baby
Put your arms around me, baby

Dance a little stranger, show me where you’ve been
Love can make you hostage wanna do it again
There’s no time to think about the starting or the end
We’ll find out I’m told, my mother she told me so

I just wanna fly
Put your arms around me, baby
Put your arms around me, baby
I just wanna fly
Put your arms around me, baby
Put your arms around me, baby
I just want to fly
I just want to fly

All around the world, statues crumble for me
Who knows how long I’ve loved you
Everyone I know has been so good to me
Twenty-five years old, my mother God rest her soul

I just wanna fly
Put your arms around me, baby
Put your arms around me, baby
I just wanna fly
Put your arms around me, baby
Put your arms around me, baby
I just want to fly
I just want to fly
I just want to fly
I just want to fly
I just want to fly

“Creep” by Radiohead

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
And I wish I was special
You’re so fuckin’ special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.

I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice
When I’m not around
You’re so fuckin’ special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.

She’s running out again,
She’s running out
She’s run run run run

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so fuckin’ special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo,
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.
I don’t belong here.

“Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at my life and realize there’s none left
‘Cause I’ve been brassing and laughing so long that
Even my mamma thinks that my mind is gone

But I ain’t never crossed a man that didn’t deserve it
Me be treated like a punk, you know that’s unheard of
You better watch how you talking, and where you walking
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
I really hate to trip but I gotta lope
As they croak I see myself in the pistal smoke fool
I’m the kinda G that little homies want to be like
On my knees in the night, saying prayers in the street light

They been spending most their lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
They been spending most their lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
We keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
We keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta’s paradise

They got the situation, they got me facing
I can’t live a normal life, I was raised by the strip
So I gotta be down with the hood team
Too much television watching got me chasing dreams
I’m a educated fool with money on my mind
Got my ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye
I’m a loped out gangsta set trippin’ banger
And my homies is down so gonna rouse my anger fool
Death ain’t nothing but a heart beat away
I’m living life do or die, what can I say
I’m twenty three never will I live to see 24
The way things is going I don’t know

Tell me why are we so blind to see
That the ones we hurt are you and me.

They been spending most their lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
They been spending most their lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
We keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
We keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta’s paradise

Power and the money, money and the power
Minute after minute, hour after hour
Everybody’s running, but half of them ain’t looking
What’s going on in the kitchen, but I don’t know what’s cooking
They say I’ve got to learn but nobody’s here to teach me
If they can’t understand it, how can they reach me
I guess they can’t
I guess they won’t
I guess they front
That’s why I know my life is out of luck fool

They been spending most their lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
They been spending most their lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
We keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta’s paradise
We keep spending most our lives living in the gangsta’s paradise

Tell me why are we so blind to see
That the ones we hurt are you and me.

Tell me why are we so blind to see
That the ones we hurt are you and me.

“The Book I’m Not Reading” by Patty Larkin

The book I’m not reading is riveting
The book I’m not reading keeps me up at night
The book I’m not reading is better than TV
Giving me insight
The book I’m not reading is history
The book I’m not reading is by some paperback writer
The book I’m not reading is a mystery
Who done it don’t matter

Oh I need someone to read me stories
Oh someone to turn the page
Oh the endless quest for love and glory
Oh does not fade away with age

The book I’m not reading is ancient tome
The book I’m not reading was born yesterday
The book I’m not reading keeps me off the phone
With nothing to say
The book I’m not reading is the self-help kind
The book I’m not reading has a life jacket enclosed
The book I’m not reading is a friend of mine
God knows we need those

Oh I need someone to read me stories
Oh someone to turn the page
Oh the endless quest for love and glory
Oh does not fade away with age

The book I’m not reading’s on the internet
The book I’m not reading is a brand new movie
The book I’m not reading isn’t out yet
And it’s all new to me
The book I’m not reading isn’t written down
The book I’m not reading is an English translation
The book I’m not reading should be read aloud
And I’m getting impatient

Oh I need someone to read me stories
Oh someone to turn the page
Oh the endless quest for love and glory
Oh does not fade away with age
