I think more people should be imprisoned due to their love of singing at karaoke bars.
 
2003-04-03 10:15:24 AM  
Beerstud I was thinking the exact same thing

"I know I'm on the lam, but must...sing....New York New York...ugh"
 
2003-04-03 10:39:59 AM  
Was he singing You Better Run from Pat Benatar's album Crimes of Passion?
 
2003-04-03 10:45:02 AM  
Or Freeborn Man by The Outlaws?
 
2003-04-03 10:55:28 AM  
He was completing a set comprised of:
"Born to Run", "Dead or Alive", "Jailbreak", "Indiana Wants Me", "Band On The Run", "Breakout", and "Jailhouse Rock"
 
2003-04-03 11:00:15 AM

Beerstud... scary.
 
2003-04-03 11:10:08 AM  
First thing that popped into my head. Sorry.

Wanted, Dread or Alive!

Said I'm wanted, dread & alive
By the evil forces
Said I'm wanted, dread & alive
Nowhere to hide
They are trying to find me
CHORUS

Babylon charge I for ganja
Which I know couldn't do
How could one man ganja
Must be an ape from the zoo
CHORUS

I've been accused for a shootin'
Which I know never do
Who 'dem in prison them willin'???
So I've got to pull my way through
CHORUS

Yesterday was court day
And I-Man forget to go
Today my name is in my papers
And next warrant they will show
CHORUS

Now I've got to
Judge two guns
To protect myself from men
'Cause I've never done nothin' wrong
And I hate traveling scared
CHORUS
 
2003-04-03 11:11:13 AM  
Deja Vu all over again.

Breaking rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I needed money cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
Well she's the best girl that I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Robbing people with a six gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

i lost my girl and i lost my fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
Well she's the best girl that I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
 
2003-04-03 11:12:58 AM  
I'm told that at certain places in south Asia - like Phillipenes, Malaysia, etc. some karaoke bars = private rooms with hookers. Anyone verify?
 
2003-04-03 11:15:18 AM  
Young_Fart
Is that like Vuja De? all over again?
 
2003-04-03 11:17:16 AM  
Irockalot: I see your "I fought the law" And raise you a lawman.

Law man--I'm afraid you just walked in here at the wrong time
my old man's gun has never been fired
but there's a first time & this could be
this could be the first time

Law man
you know you look to be a lot younger than me and
I'd hate to shoot a baby
you've got a long way to go before you're old & slow
and it could be
it could be a good time if you change your mind
well I'm tired and sweet from making love
and it's just too late
you'll have to wait
bring your business around here in the morning

well I've heard your line
& you've heard mine
& I'm just too tired to take a side
bring your business around here in the morning
Don't you want to be easy look there
let some of the things you see go on by or
you can burn them into your brain go on home
Don't you see the children, they're just like you
they want everything to be fine but they let it slide
and the laughing lets you know that smiling breaks the rules

Law breaker you know it could be me
& if you had your way we'd all be down
under the face of a clock that's just too old to be wound
& you can see now the old hands won't move around
one way or the other,
fool card brother this could be,
this could be, the first time.
 
2003-04-03 11:19:58 AM  
And now he is singing Send lawyers, guns and money...
 
2003-04-03 11:21:04 AM  
I was Rambo in the disco
I was shootin' to the beat
When they burned me in effigy
My vacation was complete
 
2003-04-03 11:22:39 AM  
The only positive thing ever to happen at a karaoke bar.
 
2003-04-03 11:23:46 AM  
Ah good. People are posting song lyrics. My scroll wheel has started to smell like burning rubber.
 
2003-04-03 11:24:08 AM  
The jig is up


and GONE
 
2003-04-03 11:25:50 AM  
Time for him to learn "Chain Gang" by Sam Cooke, or "Jailhouse Rock" by Leiber and Stoller.
 
2003-04-03 11:27:14 AM  
Beefy_byproduct: Blazing Saddles?
 
2003-04-03 11:27:58 AM  
This is like the low-class equivalent of the Greek hero's tragic flaw.
 
2003-04-03 11:28:47 AM  
...or Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", for that matter. Unless the band name would hit a little too close to home soon...
 
2003-04-03 11:28:48 AM  
Yeah, more like...

At First I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Thinkin' how you did me wrong and I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
And so you're back, from outta space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face.
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

Chorus

Go now go, walk out the door
just turn around now
Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Think I'd crumble?
Think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no, not I, I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love I know I'll be alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give and I'll survive
I will survive. Hey Hey.

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept tryin' hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
And you see me, somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you.
And so you feel like droppin' in
And just expect me to be free
Now I'm saving all my money for someone who's loving me
 
2003-04-03 11:29:55 AM  
The following rendition of a Wayne Newton tune managed to get me thrown out of some redneck bar flat on my ass

Donkey Sh!t, Darling, Donkey Sh!t.
Thank you for all the joy and pain.
Picture shows, second balcony, was the place we'd meet,
Second seat, go Dutch treat, you were sweet.

Donkey Sh!t, Darling, Donkey Sh!t.
Save those lies, Darling don't explain.
I recall, Central Park in fall.
How you tore your dress, what a mess, I confess.
That's not all.

Donkey Sh!t, Darling, Donkey Sh!t.
Thank you for walks down Lover's Lane.
I can see, hearts carved on a tree.
Letters inter-twined, for all time, yours and mine, that was fine.

Donkey Sh!t, Darling, Donkey Sh!t.
Thank you for seeing me again.
Though we go on our seperate ways,
Still the memory stays, for always, my heart says, Donkey Sh!t.

Donkey Sh!t, Oh Darling, Donkey Sh!t.
I said, Thank you for seeing me again.
Though we go- on our seperate ways,
Still the memory stays, for always, my heart says, Donkey Sh!t.
Donkey Sh!t, Auf Wiedersehen, Donkey Sh!t

You know what's really sad?

I remember this episode of AMW. And I never watch the damn show. I just happened to stop on it while surfing and laughed and this moron...

Eatham: "I'm told that at certain places in south Asia - like Phillipenes, Malaysia, etc. some karaoke bars = private rooms with hookers."

I can't verify that, I just know that, with myself being a host for a karaoke company, it's not in my job description! LOL
 
2003-04-03 11:33:30 AM  
It appears that I'm not the only one that thinks kareoke is stupid. Halleluja!!

Went to one of them bars last summer and felt pity for the people up there singing. They have a rather "sophisticated" method of checking id - they have this scanner thingie that they run your license through. Unfortunately, they now have my name and address and keep sending me shiat in the mail. I will go back there, if for no other reason, than to claim my free birthday drink that they sent me a coupon for.
 
2003-04-03 11:42:46 AM  
True story:
There's a guy here in town that thinks he's Elvis. Has Elvis on his license plate, has costumes, including scarves, brings his own karaoke tapes to the bar, does the swingin' hip stuff...its downright creepy! During the day he wears the gold Elvis sunglasses, has his hair dyed jet black (married a hairdresser a few months ago)....*shiver*....talk about having no life!
 
2003-04-03 11:48:25 AM  
Sevenofnine471 - Yeah, but you're in Canada.
 
2003-04-03 11:48:42 AM  
Ya know Little_wyo_DJ ... in the 9 years I've been hosting I've seen some pretty bizarre things...that, however takes the cake.

EatHam:
[singing]
"Sit on my faaace, and tell me that you love me..."
 
2003-04-03 11:56:18 AM  
This man is quite dumb. Maybe he should have loved changing his identity and moving to Canada instead. Is that where the murderers go now, or is Mexico still fashionable?

Captain Obvious over here (a.k.a. me) had the same song pop into his head.
 
2003-04-03 12:00:14 PM  
What was he singing when they caught him? Why are the important details always left out of these stories?

Like Bush. On what brand of pretzel does he prefer to choke? What was the score when it happened? Who was playing? Championship game? Which one?

Journalism is less fun because journalists forget to follow the interests of the readers. Creativity is badly needed in America today.
 
2003-04-03 12:07:15 PM  
I'm still at large with a song in my throat! :)

La la la bamba! La la la bamba!
 
2003-04-03 12:15:07 PM  
Wow. This is the perfect thread for those who love to post lyrics to songs. Unfortunately, I don't have one to post.


yet....
 
2003-04-03 12:20:50 PM  
You make me realize what it is that I'm breathing
Because I'm feeling so far away from here now
Your farking world I've lived in and could never respect
And all the times I liked it I was feeling dead
Live my life without tomorrow
I'll kiss your face to see your sorrow

How's it feel you're down on the floor
Are you worried I'm in control
Now I know you really can't stand when I spit in God's face

Give it all to me
It's not enough to hold me long
Give me everything
It's not enough to hold me long

It almost starts to feel like that dream that I'm living
An endless cycle feeling the skin that I'm tearing
The melting walls you live for are becoming detached
And all this time you thought that it would never turn black
See what's left there's no tomorrow
Tell that pig he is so hollow

How's it feel you're down on the floor
Are you worried I'm in control
Now I know you really can't stand when I spit in God's face

Give it all to me
It's not enough to hold me long
Give me everything
It's not enough to hold me long


had to be done.
 
2003-04-03 12:21:33 PM  
Ok, NOW it's time to post lyics. In this thread only. Please?

/runs off to paste lyrics in the photoshop thread.
 
2003-04-03 12:26:15 PM  
Can everyone please post more song lyrics. I just love scrolling through them!
 
2003-04-03 12:27:18 PM  
Maveno
Wow. This is the perfect thread for those who love to post lyrics to songs. Unfortunately, I don't have one to post.


Really? No songs? There should always be a song in your heart. Just invent the lyrics. Besides, so many songs now just sound like: BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM. Be creative, my dear.
 
2003-04-03 12:30:15 PM  
What a fool, he should have just broken down and a bought a karaoke machine for the house. My wife has one and it has made life sooooo much easier.

/puts ear plugs in goes, up to attic
 
2003-04-03 12:40:40 PM  
DanielVovak I was creative. see?
 
2003-04-03 12:49:07 PM  
Maveno
*head drops to desk*

How could I have ignored her post? Oh God, fogive me for not seeing Maveno's post. How could it end this way? . . . How? . . . How?
 
2003-04-03 12:57:09 PM  
I have no idea what you mean and/or are talking about. But here, this is for you, since you seem to be having a bad day.
Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much

Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
