all Me First and the Gimme Gimmes lyrics



Over the Rainbow
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up when the clouds are far
behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little blue birds fly across the rainbow
Why oh why can't I?back to top
Science Fiction/Double Feature
Michael Rennie was ill The Day The Earth Stood Still
But he told us where we stand
Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear
Claude Rains was The Invisible Man

Then something went wrong for Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace It Come From Outer Space
And this is how the message ran

Science fiction, double feature
Doctor X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet

Oh oh oh oh oh
At the late night, double feature, picture show (oww!)

I knew Leo G. Carrol was over a barrel
When Tarantula took to the hills
And I got really hot when I saw Jeanette Scott
Fight a Triffid that spits poison and kills

Dana Andrews said Prunes gave him the Runes
And passing them used lots of skills
But When Worlds Collide, said George Pal to his bride
"I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills," like a

Oh oh oh oh oh, at the late night, double feature, picture show
I wanna go, oh oh oh oh, to the late night, double feature, picture show
By RKL, oh oh oh oh, to the late night, double feature, picture show
In the back row, to the late night, double feature, picture showback to top
Summertime
and the living is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh you're daddy's rich and your mom is good lookin'
So hush little baby, don' you cry

One of these mornin's you gonna rise up singin'
Spread your wings and you'll take the sky
Until that mornin' there's a nothin' can harm you
With Mommy and Daddy standin' by, hey!

Oh hush little baby, don' you cry
Hush little baby don' you cry
Hush little baby don' you cry
Hush little baby don' you cryback to top
Favorite Things
Like a dog bite, like a bee sting
I don't feel so fucking bad

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream collored ponies and crisp apple strudel
Doorbells and sleighbells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
Then I don't feel so bad

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream collored ponies and crisp apple strudel
Doorbells and sleighbells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
Then I don't feel so bad

Yeah! Yeah!back to top
Rainbow Connection
Why are there so many songs about rainbows
What's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide

So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see

Someday we'll find it, the Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far

What's so amazing that keeps us star gazing
What do we think we might see?

All of us under its spell
We know that it's probably magic

Have you been half-asleep and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
It may be one and the same

I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm supposed to be

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Phantom of the Opera Song
In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came
That voice which calls to me and speaks my name
And do I dream again? For now I find
The Phantom of the Opera is there inside my mind

Sing once again with me our strange duet
My power over you grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me to glance behind
The Phantom of the Opera is there inside your mind

Those who have seen your face draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear, it's me they hear

Your spirit and my voice in one combined
The Phantom of the Opera is there inside my mind

The Phantom of the Opera
The Phantom of the Operaback to top
I Sing the Body Electric
I celebrate the me yet to come
I toast to my own reunion
When I become one with the sun

And I look back on Venus, I look back on Mars
And I burn with the fire of ten million stars
And in time, and in time we will all be stars

I sing the body electric
I glory in the glow of rebirth
Creating my own tomorrow
When I shall embody the earth

And I'll serenade Venus, I'll serenade Mars
And I'll burn with the fire of ten million stars
And in time, and in time we will all be stars

And I'll look back on Venus, I'll look back on Mars
And I'll burn with the fire of ten million stars
And in time, and in time we will all be stars

Yeah
How's the town difference?back to top
It's Raining on Prom Night
I was deprived of a young girl's dream
By the cruel force of nature from the blue
Instead of a night full of romance supreme
All I got was a running nose and Aegeatic flu

It's raining on prom night, my hair is a mess
It's running all over my taffeta dress
It's wilting the quilting in my maiden form
And mascara flows right down my nose because of the storm

I don't even have a corsage, oh gee
It fell down a sewer with my sister's ID

(talking)
Yes, it's raining on prom night.
Oh my darling, what can I do?
I miss you.
It's raining real rain from the skies
and it's draining real menstrual blood from my thighs,
over you, oh over you.
Oh dear god, make him feel the same way I do right now.
He'll never want to see me again...

What can I do? It's raining, raining from the skies
It's raining tears from my eyes over you
Oooooow, raining from the skies over youback to top
Tomorrow
The sun'll come out tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun
Just thinking about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow 'til there's none

When I'm stuck with a day that's gray and lonely
I stick out my chin and grin and say

The sun'll come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on 'til tomorrow, come what may

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you, tomorrow
You're always a day away
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you, tomorrow
You're always a day away

Yeah!back to top
What I Did for Love
Kiss the day goodbye
The sweetness and the sorrow
We did what we had to do
And I can't regret what I did for love, what I did for love

Look my eyes are dry
And towards always tomorrow
It's as if we always knew
But I won't forget what I did for love, what I did for love

Gone, love is never gone
And we cary on, love's what we'll remember

Kiss the day goodbye
And point me toward tomorrow
And wish me luck, the same to you
Won't regret, can't forget what I did for love

What I did for love
What I did for loveback to top
Stepping Out
What good is sitting alone in your room?
Come hear the music play
Life is a cabaret, old chum
Come to the cabaret

Put down the knitting, the book and the broom
It's time for a holiday
Life is a cabaret, old chum
Come to the cabaret

Come taste the wine, come hear the band
Come blow that horn, start celebrating
Right this way
Your table's waiting

No use permitting some prophet of doom
To wipe every smile away
Life is a cabaret, old chum
Come to the cabaret

I used to have a girlfriend known as Elsie
With whom I shared for sordid rooms in Chelsea
She wasn't what you call a blushing flower
As a matter of fact she rented by the hour

The day she dies the neighbors came to snick her
Well that's what comes of too much pills and liquor
But when I saw her laid up like a quee
She was the happiest corpes I'd ever seen

And as for me
As for me
I made my mind up back in Chelsea
When I go I'm going like Elsie

Stop by admitting from cradle to doom
It's such a long, long smile
Life is a cabaret, old chum
Come to the cabaret

What good is sitting alone in your room?
Come hear the music play
Life is a cabaret, old chum
Come to the cabaret

Life is a cabaret, old chum
Come to the caba, come in the caba, I love a cabaret!!!back to top
