Blue Orchid
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - Blue Orchid

You got a reaction,
You got a reaction, didn't you?,
You took a white orchid,
You took a white orchid, turned it blue,

Something better than nothing,
Something better than nothing, it's giving up,
We all need to do something,
Try to keep the truth from showing up,

How dare you,
How old are you now, anyway?,
How dare you,
How old are you now, anyway?,

How dare you,
How old are you now, anyway?,

You're given a flower,
But I guess that there's just no pleasing you,
Your lip tastes sour,
But you think that it's just me teasing you,

You got a reaction,
You got a reaction, didn't you?,
You took a white orchid,
You took a white orchid, turned it blue,

Get behind me,
Get behind me now, anyway,
Get behind me,
Get behind me now, anyway,

Get behind me,
Get behind me now, anyway,

Hoo hoo,

You got a reaction,
You got a reaction, didn't you?,
You took a white orchid,
You took a white orchid, turned it blue,back to top
The Nurse
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - The Nurse

The nurse should not be the one who puts salt in your wounds,
But it's always with trust that the poison is fed with a spoon,
When you're helpless with no one to turn to alone in your room,

You would swear that the one who would care for you never would leave,
She promised and said "You will always be safe here with me",
But promises open the door to be broken to me,

No I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down now,
No I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down,
No I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down now,
No I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down,

The maid that you've hired could never conspire to kill,
She's to mother, not quietly smother you when you're most ill,
The one that you're trusting suspiciously dusting the sill,

No I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down now,
No I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down,
No I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down now,
no I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down,back to top

And I've been going to mystery misses,
I respect the art of the show,
Take back what you said little girl,
And while you're at it take yourself back too,
And I tell ya to see to be waitin',

You don't seem to come around,
Point your finger and make a sound,

You don't seem to come around,
Not since I said you knocked it down?,

Oh well,

Make a sound and I'll make you feel right,
Right at home, yeah,
Yeah, right at home, yeah,

Nobody got no baby me baby?,
How come it's so easy to you,
You know it's like me at times I can be careless,
But your words seem so obtuse,
But then again I know you feel guilty,
And you tell me you want me again,
But I don't need any of your pity,
I got plenty of my own friends,
They're all above me,

And I've been thinkin' about my doorbell,
When they gonna ring it?, when they gonna ring it?,
Yeah, I've been thinkin' about the doorbell,
When they gonna ring it?, when they gonna ring it?, oh,

Maybe soon they'll knock 'em down,

Forever for Her (Is Over for Me)
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - Forever For Her (Is Over For Me)

I blew it,
And if I knew what to do, then I'd do it,
But the point that I have, I'll get to it,
And forever for her is over for me,

Forever, just the word that she said that means never,
To be with another together,
And with the weight of a feather it tore into me,

Then I knew it,
And All the work that it took to get through it,
On the wings of a feather that flew it,
Fell onto my shoe, it cut up into me,

Well, everybody's reaction... is changing you,
But their love is only a fraction of what I can give to you,
So let's do it, just get on a plane and just do it,
Like the birds and the bees and get to it,
Let's get out of town and forever be free,
Forever, I wonder we could stay together,
It could change if you want for the better,
Just turn down my shirt and lay down next to me,

I blew it,
And if I knew what to do, then I'd do it,
But the point that I have, I'll get to it,
And forever for her is over for me,

Forever, just the word that she said that means never,
To be with another together,
And with the weight of a feather it tore into me,

Well, everybody's reaction... is changing you,
But their love is only a fraction of what I can give to you,
Well, let's do it, let's get on a plane and just do it,
Like the birds and the bees and get to it,
Just get out of town and forever be free,
Forever, I wonder we could stay together,
It could change if you want for the better,
Just tug at my shirt and lay down next to me,
Yeah,back to top
Little Ghost
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - Little Ghost

Little ghost, little ghost,
One I'm scared of the most,
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?,
I'm the only one that sees you,
And I can't do much to please you,
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above,

The first woman that I met her,
I did not expect a specter,
When I shook her hand I really shook a glove,
She looked into me so sweetly,
And we left the room discreetly,
No one else could know the secret of our love,

Little ghost, little ghost,
One I'm scared of the most,
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?,
I'm the only one that sees you,
And I can't do much to please you,
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above,

Every morning I awoke,
And I see my little ghost,
Wonderin' if it's really her that's lying there,
I lean to touch her and I whisper,
But not brave enough to kiss her,
When I held her I was really holdin' air,

Little ghost, little ghost,
One I'm scared of the most,
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?,
I'm the only one that sees you,
And I can't do much to please you,
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above,

Though I try my best to keep it,
There really was no secret,
Must have looked like I was dancing with the wall,
No one else could see this apparition,
But because of my condition,
I fell in love with a little ghost and that was all,

Little ghost, little ghost,
One I'm scared of the most,
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?,
I'm the only one that sees you,
And I can't do much to please you,
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above,
No, it's not yet time to meet the lord above,back to top
The Denial Twist
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - The Denial Twist

If you think that a kiss is all in the lips,
C'mon, you've got it all wrong, man,
And if you think that our dance was all in the hips,
Oh well, then do the twist,

If you think holding hands is all in the fingers,
Grab hold of the soul where the memory lingers and,
Make sure to never do it with the fingers,
'Cause I'll tell everyone in the world,

But he was thinking about the girl,
Yeah but he's thinking about the girl, oh,

A lot of people get confused and they bruise,
Real easy when it comes to love,
They start puttin' on their shoes and walking out,
And singing "Boy, I think I had enough",

Just because she makes you feel wrong,
She don't mean to be mean or hurt you on purpose, boy,
Take a tip and do yourself a little service,
Take a mountain turn it into a mole,

Just by playing a different role,
Yeah, by playing a different role, oh,

The boat, yeah, you know she's rockin' it,
And the truth well ya know there's no stoppin' it,
Yeah, oh,

The boat, yeah, you know she's still rockin' it,
And the truth well you know there's no stoppin' it,

So what, somebody left you in a rut,
And wants to be the one who's in control,
But the feeling that you're under can really make you wonder,
How the hell she can be so cold,

So now you're mad, denying the truth,
And it's getting in the wisdom in the back of your tooth,
You need to spit it out in a telephone booth,
While ya call everyone that you know, and ask 'em

Where do you think she goes?,
Oh yeah, where d'ya suppose she goes, oh,

The truth well you know there's no stoppin' it,
And the boat well ya know she's still rockin' it,
Yeah,

The boat, well, you know she's still rockin' it,
And the truth, yeah, you know there's no stoppin' it,

You recognize with your back in the back,
That it's colder when she rocks the boat,
But it's the cause hittin' on the Cardinal Laws,
'Bout the proper place to hang her coat,

So to you, the truth is still hidden,
And the soul plays the role of a lost little kitten but,
You should know that the dark is one kitten,
She's been singing it all along,

But you were hearin' a different song,
Yeah you were hearin' a different song,
But you were hearin' a different songback to top
White Moon
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - White Moon

White moon, white moon,
Breaks open the tomb,
Of a deserted cartoon that I wrote,

Creature come, creature, creature,
My own double feature,
As I'm warmin' the bleachers at home,

Well, my nose keeps on bleeding,
'Cause it's Rita I'm needing,
I better call out a meeting of the boys... of the boys,

My friends are all dying,
And death can't be lying,
It's the truth and it don't make a noise,

Oh Rita, oh Rita,
If you lived in Mesita,
I would move you with the beat of a drum,
And this picture is proof,
That although you're aloof,
You had the shiniest tooth 'neath the sun,

Easy come, easy go,
Be a star of the show,
I'm giving up all I know to get more... to get more,

Photograph the picture,
Young grunt pin-up scripture,
For locker-tagged memories of war,

A mirage, this garage,
And the photo montage,
And the finger massage from the host,

Good lord, good lord,
The one I adore,
And I cannot afford is a ghost... is a ghost,

Proto-social is the word,
And the word is the bird,
That flew through the herd in the snow... in the snow,

Lemonade me, then grade me,
Then deliver my baby,
And if my friends all persuade me, I'll go,

Blink, blink at me Rita,
Don't you know I'm a bleeder?,
And I promised I wouldn't lead her on,
But she met me, then led me,
And I ate what was fed me,
Till I purged every word in this song,back to top

Well, the crickets get it,
And the ants get it,
I bet you the pigs get it,
Yeah, even the plants get it,
Come on now and get with it,
Yeah, I want you to get with it, oh,
Yeah, I just want you to get with it,

'Cause everyone that's under your shoe,
And every bird and bug in the jungle too,
And everything in the ocean blue,
They just happen to know exactly what to do,
So why don't you?,
Yeah, why don't you?,

The flies get it,
And the frogs get it,
And all them big jungle cats get it,
And I bet your little dog gets it,
Yeah, I want you to get with it, oh,
Yeah, come on and get with it, woo,
Yeah, I want you to get with it,

'Cause everyone that's under your shoe,
And every bird and bee in the jungle too,
And everything in the ocean blue,

And all the chickens get it,
And them singing canaries get it,
Woo, oh, woo,
Now even strawberries get it,

Yeah, I want you to get with it, oh, yeah,
I want you to get with it,

Song - Passive Manipulation

Women, listen to your mothers,
Don't just succumb to the wishes of your brothers,
Take a step back, take a look at one another,
You need to know the difference... between a father and a lover,

Women, listen to your mothers,
Don't just succumb to the wishes of your brothers,
Take a step back, take a look at one another,

Take, Take, Take
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - Take, Take, Take

I was sitting there in a comfortable chair,
And that was all that I needed,
Then my friend offered me a drink for us to share,
And that was all that I needed,
Well, then I felt at ease,
But then I'm not too hard to please,
I guess you couldn't call me greedy,
Then I was shocked to look up,
And see Rita Hayworth there in a place so seedy,
She walked into the bar with her long, red, curly hair,
And that was all that I needed,
And I said to my friend,
"Good god, we're lucky men just to even see her",

Take, take, take,
Take, take, take,
Take, take, take,

And I could not resist, I just had to get close to her,
And that was all that I needed,
I walked and loomed around her table for a while,
And that was all that I needed,
Then I said, "I hate to bug you, ma'am, but can I have your autograph?",
And that was all that I needed,
She pressed her lips against a white piece of paper,
And that was all that I needed,
Then I saw what she wrote, my heart is in my mouth,
And that was all that I needed,
Then she handed it to me, and I think that she could see,
That that was all that I needed,

I started to walk away but then I remembered,
"Hey, I forgot to get a picture",
So I asked her one more time, "Could I have another favour?"
That was all that I needed
She was kind and posed with me
Then I knew my friend would see my celebrity meeting,

Take, take, take,
Take, take, take,
Take, take, take,

She turned and said to me, "I need to go to sleep,"
And it seemed so mean,
It's almost as if she could not appreciate,
How cool I was being,
She said "Good night" and walked away, and I didn't know what to say,
I just couldn't believe it,
Well, it's just not fair, I want to get a piece of hair,
That was all that I needed,
Or maybe a kiss on the cheek, I wouldn't wash it for a week,
That would be all that I needed,
But she didn't even care, that I was even there,
What a horrible feeling,back to top
As Ugly as I Seem
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - As Ugly As I Seem

"Two, three"

I am as ugly as I seem,
Worse than all your dreams,
Could ever make me out to be,
And it makes me want to scream,
When it's Halloween,
And the kids are laughing,
The rogue is a bank, he's never broke,
But worth as much as a joke,
That no one is laughing at,

Can you believe some things are not,
Appealing and there's a spot,
On the ceiling of my childhood bedroom,
And can these dreams that you can't imagine,
Will never match the vision,
That you had decided for me,
You are to take away from me,
Things that are mine and it's not your right,
Out that you'd wouldn't expect to find out,
Can it be that I don't want what you want?,
And the only thing I could care for,
Is a place in a home that is safe and warm,
Safe and warm, safe and warm, safe and warm,

(Guitar Solo)

Judge yourself if you feel the need,
Just let me known to be,
In search of the truth myself,
There is a drop of blood on the ground,
And it seems to me that it's not my kind,
And I can't be sure if it's yours or mine,

I am as ugly as I seem,
Worse than all your dreams could ever make me,
Could ever make me,
Could ever make me,
Could ever make me,back to top

Song - Red Rain

Can't you hear me calling your name, girl?,

I'm standing, standing in the red, red rain,
In the morning, standing in the red, red rain,
Can't you hear me?, can't you hear me calling your name, girl?,
In the morning, when I'm standing in the red, red rain, girl,

In the morning, I'm standing in the red, red rain,
Can't you hear me?, can't you hear me calling your name, girl?,
In the morning, when I'm standing in the red, red rain, girl,

You think not telling is the same as not lying, don't you?,
Then I guess not feeling is the same as not crying to you,
You think not telling is the same as not lying, don't you?,
Then I guess not feeling is the same as not crying to you,

In the red, in the rain, in the rain,
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain,
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain,
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain,

If there is a lie, then there is a liar too,
And if there is a sin, then there is a sinner too,
And if there is a lie, then there is a liar too,
And if there is a sin, then there is a sinner too,

In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain,
I'm in red, I'm in red, in the rain, in the rain,
In the red, in the red, in the rain, in the rain,

I'm in red, I'm in red, in the rain, in the rain,

I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)
Artist/Band - The White Stripes
Album - Get Behind Me Satan
Song - I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)

Well I miss my mother and I miss being her son,
As crazy as I was I guess I wasn't much of one,
Sometimes I miss her so much, I want to hop on the next jet,
And I get lonely but I ain't that lonely yet,

And I love my sister, Lord knows how I've missed her,
She loves me and she knows I won't forget,
And sometimes I get jealous of all her little pets,
And I get lonely but I ain't that lonely yet,

I roll over in bed, looking for someone to touch,
There's a girl that I know of but don't ask for much,
She's homely and she's cranky and her hair's in a net,
And I'm lonely but I ain't that lonely yet,

I get my friend when I need one,
I need someone to be one,
I take anybody I can get,
And sometimes I wanna call you,
And I feel like a pet,
And I'm lonely but I ain't that lonely yet,

I went down to the river filled with regret,
I go down and I wonder if there was any reason left,
I've just before my lungs could get wet,
I'm lonely but I ain't that lonely yet,

And I love my sister, Lord knows how I've missed her,
She loves me and she knows I won't forget,
Sometimes I get jealous of all her little pets,
And I get lonely but I ain't that lonely yet,
Yeah, I get lonely but I ain't that lonely yet,back to top
