Too late, but never mind.

I hear the noise of wings.

If ever you heard a little dog bark

Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel

She makes a small hole in the frost on the window

Walking in his footsteps in the sweet delta dawn.

And Mary gathered cherries while Joseph stood around.

And pass as light by him as he can by me

First flower of their wilderness, star of their night

Her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun.

Till the rain comes tumbling down.

Follow me, follow me home.

I'll pass the time like some machine

There'll be no policemen there

And painted rooms are bonny

And now I have lived, I know not how long

Tie my bones to his back, turn our faces to the west

Amid these dark satanic mills

If I were a woman as I am a man

It will all come right by tomorrow night

Die Liebe dauert oder dauert nicht

And turns to set the mirror gently face down on the stove

Unsre beiden Schatten sahn wie einer aus.

And some of them will marry, and one will marry me.

Give motherlove and lumpytums.

With smiling bastards lying to you everywhere you go

Seduced a maid who hanged herself one Monday in her garters.

Just need you, baby, when the summer come.

I'm tired of living and scared of dying

The silent stars go by.

Alas! It was to none but me.

Trudno vyskazat' i ne vyskazat'

Your face will shine through all our tears

And in the fight that followed

But not so little boys

Cool Colorado rain

This world is a world of lies.

When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall

Rozhenkes mit mandeln

Put my boots on tall, read the writing on the wall

Rocks the cradle and cries

We weren't lovers like that, and besides, it would still be all right.

Greasy rails, red clay trails

I'd say snow's what we've got.

Chickens crowing on Sourwood Mountain

Sweated in the sun that was hot at dawn

Sweet whips ding dong

Let the 2:19 ease my troubled mind

She said she'd meet me when I come

Oh, when will we ever learn?
