    • Love of mine some day you will die But I'll be close behind I'll follow you into the dark No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white Just our hands clasped so tight Waiting for the hint of a spark [Chorus] If Heaven and Hell decide That they both are satisfied Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs If there's no one beside you When your soul embarks Then I'll follow you into the dark In Catholic school as vicious as Roman ruleI got my knuckles bruised by a lady in blackAnd I held my tongue as she told me"Son fear is the heart of love"So I never went back[Chorus]You and me have seen everything to seeFrom Bangkok to CalgaryAnd the soles of your shoes are all worn downThe time for sleep is nowIt's nothing to cry about'cause we'll hold each other soonIn the blackest of rooms[Chorus] Death Cab for Cutie, “I Will Follow You Into the Dark”

    • Cole Porter, “Let’s Do It,” from Paris (1928) When the little bluebird Who has never said a word Starts to sing Spring When the little bluebell At the bottom of the dell Starts to ring Ding dong Ding dong When the little blue clerk In the middle of his work Starts a tune to the moon up above It is nature that is all Simply telling us to fall in love
    • And that's why birds do it, bees do it Even educated fleas do it Let's do it, let's fall in love Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it Even lazy jellyfish do it Let's do it, let's fall in love I've heard that lizards and frogs do it Layin' on a rock They say that roosters do it With a doodle and cock Some Argentines, without means do it I hear even Boston beans do it Let's do it, let's fall in love
    • When the little bluebird Who has never said a word starts to sing Spring spring spring When the little bluebell At the bottom of the dell Starts to ring Ding ding ding When the little blue clerk In the middle of his work Starts a tune The most refined lady bugs do it When a gentleman calls Moths in your rugs they do it What's the use of moth balls The chimpanzees in the zoos do it, Some courageous kangaroos do it Let's do it, let's fall in love I'm sure sometimes on the sly you do it Maybe even you and I might do it Let's do it, let's fall in love

    • Ballads / Story Songs
    • Up in the mornin' and out to school The teacher is teachin' the Golden Rule American history and practical math You studyin' hard and hopin' to pass Workin' your fingers right down to the bone And the guy behind you won't leave you alone Ring, ring goes the bell The cook in the lunch room's ready to sell You're lucky if you can find a seat You're fortunate if you have time to eat Back in the classroom, open your books Keep up the teacher don't know how mean she looks Chuck Berry, “School Day” (1957)
    • Soon as three o'clock rolls around You finally lay your burden down Close up your books, get out of your seat Down the halls and into the street Up to the corner and 'round the bend Right to the juke joint, you go in Drop the coin right into the slot You're gotta hear somethin' that's really hot With the one you love, you're makin' romance All day long you been wantin' to dance, Feeling the music from head to toe Round and round and round we go Hail, hail rock and roll Deliver me from the days of old Long live rock and roll The beat of the drums, loud and bold Rock, rock, rock and roll The feelin' is there, body and soul
    • Disjunct / Opaque lyrics
      • In other words, “huh?”
    • R.E.M., “The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight” This here is the place I will be staying. There isn't a number. You can call the pay phone. Let it ring a long, long, long, long time. If I don't pick up, hang up, call back, let it ring some more. If I don't pick up, pick up... The sidewinder sleeps, sleeps, sleeps in a coil Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her. There are scratches all around the coin slot Like a heartbeat, baby trying to wake up, But this machine can only swallow money. You can't lay a patch by computer design. It's just a lot of stupid, stupid signs. Tell her she can kiss my a--, then laugh and say that you were only kidding. That way she'll know that it's really, really, really, really me.
    • Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her. Baby, instant soup doesn't really grab me. Today I need something more sub-sub-sub-substantial. A can of beans or blackeyed peas, some Nescafe and ice, A candy bar, a falling star, or a reading of Doctor Seuss; Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her. The cat in the hat came back, wrecked a lot of havoc on the way, Always had a smile and a reason to pretend. But their world has flat backgrounds and little need to sleep but to dream. The sidewinder sleeps on his back. Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her. I can always sleep standing up. Call me when you try to wake her. We've got to moogie, moogie, move on this one.

    • Katy Perry, “I Kissed a Girl” (2008) This was never the way I planned, not my intention. I got so brave, drink in hand, lost my discretion It's not what I'm used to, just wanna try you on. I'm curious for you, caught my attention. [Chorus:] I kissed a girl and I liked it, the taste of her cherry chapstick. I kissed a girl just to try it, I hope my boyfriend don't mind it. It felt so wrong, it felt so right. Don't mean I'm in love tonight. I kissed a girl and I liked it (I liked it).
    • No, I don't even know your name, it doesn't matter.You're my experimental game, just human nature.It's not what good girls do, not how they should behave.My head gets so confused, hard to obey.[Chorus]Us girls we are so magical,Soft skin, red lips, so kissable.Hard to resist, so touchable.Too good to deny it.Ain't no big deal, it's innocent.[Chorus]
