Songs without the title in the lyrics

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by rmgbem, Jan 13, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Following on from the thread "Most Bizzare Songs", remembered there are a number of songs where the words of the song title do not appear in lyrics.

    Here's my starter for 10:

    Please allow me to introduce myself
    I'm a man of wealth and taste
    I've been around for a long, long year
    Stole many a mans soul and faith
    And I was round when jesus christ
    Had his moment of doubt and pain
    Made damn sure that pilate
    Washed his hands and sealed his fate
    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name
    But what's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game
    I stuck around st. petersburg
    When I saw it was a time for a change
    Killed the czar and his ministers
    Anastasia screamed in vain
    I rode a tank
    Held a generals rank
    When the blitzkrieg raged
    And the bodies stank
    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
    Ah, what's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
    I watched with glee
    While your kings and queens
    Fought for ten decades
    For the gods they made
    I shouted out,
    Who killed the kennedys?
    When after all
    It was you and me
    Let me please introduce myself
    I'm a man of wealth and taste
    And I laid traps for troubadours
    Who get killed before they reached bombay
    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
    But what's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
    But what's confusing you
    Is just the nature of my game
    Just as every cop is a criminal
    And all the sinners saints
    As heads is tails
    Just call me lucifer
    Cause I'm in need of some restraint
    So if you meet me
    Have some courtesy
    Have some sympathy, and some taste
    Use all your well-learned politesse
    Or I'll lay your soul to waste, um yeah
    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
    But what's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
    Woo, who
    Oh yeah, get on down
    Oh yeah
    Oh yeah!
    Tell me baby, what's my name
    Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
    Tell me baby, what's my name
    I tell you one time, you're to blame
    Ooo, who
    Ooo, who
    Ooo, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Oh, yeah
    What's my name
    Tell me, baby, what's my name
    Tell me, sweetie, what's my name
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Ooo, who, who
    Oh, yeah

    ..... too fade.

  3. Billy left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreams.
    He said somehow, some way, it's gotta get better than this.
    Patti packed her bags, left a note for her momma, she was just seventeen,
    there were tears in her eyes when she kissed her little sister goodbye.

    They held each other tight as they drove on through the night they were so exited.
    We got just one shot of life, let's take it while we're still not afraid.
    Because life is so brief and time is a thief when you're undecided.
    And like a fistful of sand, it can slip right through your hands.

    Young hearts be free tonight. Time is on your side,
    Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around,
    don't let 'em ever change your point of view.

    Paradise was closed so they headed for the coast in a blissful manner.
    They took a tworoom apartment that was jumping ev'ry night of the week.
    Happiness was found in each other's arms as expected, yeah
    Billy pierced his ears, drove a pickup like a lunatic, ooh!

    Young hearts be free tonight.Time is on your side,
    Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around,
    don't let 'em ever change your point of view.

    [instrumental verse]

    Young hearts be free tonight.Time is on your side.

    Billy wrote a letter back home to Patti's parents tryin' to explain.
    He said we're both real sorry that it had to turn out this way.
    But there ain't no point in talking when there's nobody list'ning so we just ran away
    Patti gave birth to a ten pound baby boy, yeah!

    Young hearts be free tonight, time is on your side.
    Young hearts be free tonight, time is on your side.
    Young hearts be free tonight, time in on your side.

    Young hearts gotta run free, be free, live free
    Time is on, time is on your side
    Time, time, time, time is on your side
    is on your side
    is on your side
    is on your side
    Young heart be free tonight
    tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, yeah

  4. Bab O'Rielly by some band or other
     
  5. The lunatic is on the grass.
    The lunatic is on the grass.
    Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
    Got to keep the loonies on the path.

    The lunatic is in the hall.
    The lunatics are in my hall.
    The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
    And every day the paper boy brings more.

    And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
    And if there is no room upon the hill
    And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
    I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

    The lunatic is in my head.
    The lunatic is in my head
    You raise the blade, you make the change
    You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
    You lock the door
    And throw away the key
    There's someone in my head but it's not me.

    And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
    You shout and no one seems to hear.
    And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
    I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

    *** Brain Damage *** Pink Floyd

  6. Who was it by?
     
  7. Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
    People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time

    All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
    Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify

    Can you help me?
    Thought yo were my friend
    Oh yeah

    I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find
    I can't see the things that make true happiness I must be blind

    Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
    Happiness I cannot feel so love to me is so unreal

    And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
    I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late
