Seven Nation Army
White Stripes - 7 Nation Army




I'm gonna fight 'em off
A seven nation army couldn't hold
me back
They're gonna rip it off
Taking there time right behind my
back
And i'm talking to myself at night
Because i can't forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And the message coming from my
eyes
Says leave it alone

Don't want to hear about it
Every single ones got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the
hounds of hell
And if i catch you coming back my way
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you wanna hear
But it's what i'll do
And the feelings coming from my
bones
Says find a home

I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera for evermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out every
pore
And i'm bleeding, and i'm bleeding,
and i'm bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from
me and i will think
No More
And the stains coming from my blood
Tell Me Go Back Homeback to top
Black Math
White Stripe - Black Math



Don't you think that I'm bound to react now?
My fingers definately turning to black now
Maybe I'll put my live on ice
And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice

My books are sitting at the top of the stack now
The longer words are really breaking my back now
Maybe I'll learn to understand
Drawing a square with a pencil in hand

Mathematically turning the page
Unequivocally showing my age
I'm practically center stage
Undeniably earning your wage
Maybe I'll put my live on ice
And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice

Listen master can I ask you a question
Is it the fingers, or the brain
that you're teaching this lesson?
Maybe I'll put my live on ice
And teach myself, maybe that'll be niceback to top
There's No Home for You Here
There's no home for you here girl, go away
There's no home for you here

I'd like to think that all of this constant interaction
Is just the kind of make you drive yourself away
Each simple gesture done by me is counteracted
And leaves me standing here with nothing else to say

Completely baffled by a backward indication
That an inspired word will come across your tongue
Hands moving upward to propel the situation
Have simply halted
And now the conversation's done

There's no home for you here girl, go away
There's no home for you here

I'm only waiting for the proper time to tell you
That it's impossible to get along with you
It's hard to look you in the face when we are talking
So it helps to have a mirror in the room

I've not been really looking forward to the performance
But there's my cue and there's a question on your face
Fortunately I have come across an answer
Which is go away
And do not leave a trace

There's no home for you here girl, go away
There's no home for you here

Waking up for breakfast
Burning matches
Talking quietly
Breaking baubles
Throwing garbage
Drinking soda
Looking happy
Taking pictures
So completely stupid
Just go away

There's no home for you here girl, go away
There's no home for you hereback to top
I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself
I just don't know what to do with myself
I don't know what to do with myself
planning everything for two
doing everything with you
and now that we're through
I just don't know what to do

I just don't know what to do with myself
I don't know what to do with myself
movies only make me sad
parties make me feel as bad
cause I'm not with you
I just don't know what to do

like a summer rose
needs the sun and rain
I need your sweet love
to beat love away

well I don't know what to do with myself
just don't know what to do with myself
planning everything for two
doing everything with you
and now that we're through
I just don't know what to do

like a summer rose
needs the sun and rain
I need your sweet love
to beat love away

I just don't know what to do with myself
just don't know what to do with myself
just don't know what to do with myself
I don't know what to do with myselfback to top
In the Cold, Cold Night
White Stripes - In The Cold, Cold, Night




I saw you standing in the corner
On the edge of a burning light
I saw you standing in the corner
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

You make me feel a little older
Like a full grown woman might
But when you're gone I grow colder
In The Cold, Cold, Night

I saw you standing in the corner
On the edge of a burning light
I saw you standing in the corner
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

You make me feel a little older
Like a full grown woman might
But when you're gone I grow colder
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

I see you walking by my front door
I hear the creaking of the kitchen floor
I don't care what other people say
I'm going to love you, anyway
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

I can't stand it any longer
I need the fuel to make my fire burn bright
So don't fight it any longer
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

And I know that you feel it too
When my skin turns into glue
You will know that it's warm inside
And you'll come run to me, in the cold, cold nightback to top
I Want to Be the Boy to Warm Your Mother's Heart
I want to be the boy to warm your mother's heart
I'm so scared to take you away
I tried to win her over right from the start
But something always got in the way
We've been sitting in your backyard for hours
But she won't even come out and say hi
While my mother baked a little cake for you
And even dreaded when you said goodbye
What kind of cartwheels do I have to pull?
What kind of joke should I lay on her now?
I'm inclined to go finish high school
Just to make her notice that I'm around

Well nothing I come up with seems to work
It feels like everything I say is a lie
And never have a felt like such a jerk
I'm afraid to even open my eyes
Because I really don't want her to judge me
I want to her really know who I am
And then, and only then she will love me
Well at least that was the plan

If ever a boy needed a holiday
If ever a girl needed someone to hold
I just hope I don't act the same way
By the time that I get old

I never said I was the heir to a fortune
I never claimed to have any looks
But these kind of things must be important
Because somebody ripped out my page
In your telephone book

I want to warm her heartback to top
You've Got Her in Your Pocket
You've got her in your pocket
And there's no way out now
Put it in the safe and lock it
'cause it's at home sweet home

Nobody ever told you that it was the wrong way
To trick a woman, make her feel she did it her way
And you'll be there if she ever feels blue
And you'll be there when she feels someone new
What to do
Well you know

You keep her in your pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in a safe a lock it
'cause it's home sweet home

The smile on your face made her think she had the right one
Then she thought she was sure
By the way you two could have fun
But now you're scared
You think she's running away
You search in your hand for something clever to say
Don't go away
'cause I want

To keep you in my pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in a safe a lock it
'cause it's home sweet home

And in your own mind
You know you're lucky just to know her
And in the beginning all you wanted was to show her
But now she might leave
Like she's threatened before
Grab hold of her fast
Before her feet leave the floor
And she's out the door
'cause you want

To keep her in your pocketback to top
Ball and Biscuit
It's quite possible that I'm your third man girl
But it's a fact that I'm the seventh son
And right now you could care less about me
But soon enough you will care, by the time I'm done

Let's have a ball and a biscuit sugar
And take our sweet little time about it
Let's have a ball and a biscuit sugar
And take our sweet little time about it
Tell everyone in the place just to get out
We'll get clean together
And I'll find a soapbox where I can shout it

Read it in the newspaper
Ask your girlfriends and see if they know
That my strength is ten fold woman
And I'll let you see if you want to before you go

It's quite possible that I'm your third man girl
But it's a fact that I'm the seventh son
It was the other two which made me your third
But it was my mother who made me the seventh son
And right now you could care less about me
But soon enough you will care by the time I'm doneback to top

Little Acorns
Album - Elephant (2003)

(SPOKEN)
When problems overwhelm us and sadness smothers us
Where do we find the will and the courage to continue?
Well, the answer may come in caring voice of a friend
A chance encounter with a book
Or from a personal feet
For Janet, help came from her faith but it also came from a squirrel
Shortly after her divorce, Janet lost her father
Then she lost her job
She had mounting money problems
But Janet not only survived, she worked her way out of dispondancy
And now says life is good again
How could this happen?
She told me that late one autumn day when she was at her lowest
She watched a squirrel storing up nuts for the winter
One at a time he would take them to the nest
And she thought "If that squirrel can take care of himself with a harsh winter coming on so can I"
Once I broke my problems into small problems I was able to carry them just like those acorns
One at a time

(SINGING)
Take all your problems
And rip 'em apart
Oh, Oh
Uh-uh Oh
Carry them off in a shopping cart
Oh, Oh
Uh-uh Oh
Another thing you should've known
From the start
Oh
Uh-uh-uh Oh
The problems in hand
Are lighter than at heart
Oh, Oh
Uh-uh Oh

Be like the squirrel, girl
Be like the squirrel
Oh, Oh
Uh-uh Oh
Give it a whirl girl
And be like the squirrel
Oh, Oh
Uh-uh Oh
And another thing you have to know
In this world
Oh, Oh
Uh-uh Oh
Cut up your hair
Straighten your curls
Well, your problems hide
In your curls

Oh, oh
Uh-uh oh...back to top
Hypnotize
I want to hypnotize you baby
On the telephone
So many times I called your house
Just to hear the tone
And though i knew that you weren't home
I didn't mind so much 'cause I'm so alone
I want to hypnotize you baby on the telephone

I want to spin my little watch
Right before your eyes
You're the kind of girl a guy like me could hypnotize
And if this comes as a surprise
Just think of all those guys
Who would tell you lies
I want to spin my little watch
Right before your eyes

I want to hold your little hand
If I could be so bold
And be your right hand man
'till your hands get old
And then when all the feeling's gone
Just decide if you want to keep
Holding on
I want to your little hand
If I can be so bold
If I can be so bold
If I can be so boldback to top
The Air Near My Fingers
Life is so boring
It's really got me snoring
I'm wearing out the flooring
In a cheap motel
But I don't have to work
And I might be sinning
But I never have to listen to
The rings of school bells

Don't you remember?
You told me in December
That a boy is not a man
Until he makes a stand
Will, I'm not a genius
But maybe you'll remember this
I never said I wanted to be a man

I get nervous when she comes around

My mom is so caring
She really got me staring
At all the crazy little things
She does for sure
And I can't seem to think of
Another kind of love
That a boy could ever get
From anyone but her

I get nervous when she comes aroundback to top
Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine
Girl, you have no faith in medicine
Acetaminophen
You see the medicine
Girl, you have no faith in medicine

Is there a way to find the cure for this
Implanted in a pill?
Is it just the name upon the bottle
That determines if it will?

Is the problem you're allergic
To a well familiar name?
Do you have a problem with this one
If the results are the same?

Acetaminophen
You see the medicine
Girl, you have no faith in medicine

Well strip the bark right off a tree
And just hand it this way
Don't even need a drink of water
To make the headache go away
Give me sugar pill
And watch me just rattle
Down the street

Acetaminophen
You see the medicine

It's True That We Love One Another
There are three people singing in this song: Jack,
Holly, and Meg. Listen to the song to find who sings
what.

Well it's true that we love one another
I love Jack White like a little brother
Well Holly I love you too but there's
Just so much that I don't know about you

Jack give me some money to pay my bills
All the dough I give you Holly
You been using on pain pills
Jack will you call me if you're able?
I got your phone number written
In the back of my bible
Jack I think your pulling my leg
And I think maybe I better ask Meg
Meg do you think Jack really loves me?
You know, I don't care because
Jack really bugs me
Why don't you ask him now?
Well I would, but Meg
I really just don't know how
Just say 'Jack, do you adore me?'
Well I would Holly but love really bores me
Then I guess we should just be friends
I'm just kidding Holly
You know that I'll love you 'til the end

Well it's true that we love one another
I love Jack White like a little brother
Well Holly I love you too but there's
Just so much that I don't know about you

Holly give me some of your English lovin'
If I did that Jack I'd have one in the oven
Why don't you go off and just love yourself
If I did that Holly there won't be anything
Left for anybody else
Jack it's too bad about the way you look
You know I gave that horse a carrot
So he'd break your foot
Will the two of you cut it out
And tell 'em what it's really all about

Well it's true that we love one another
I love Jack White like a little brother
Well Holly I love you too but there's
Just so much that I don't know about youback to top
