Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground
The White Stripes
Dead Leaves adn the Dirty Ground
White Blood Cells



Dead leaves and the dirty ground
When i know you're not around

Shiny tops and soda pops
When I hear your lips make a sound

Thirty notes in the mailbox
Will tell you that I'm commin home

And I think I'm gonna stick around
For a while so you're not alone

If you can hear the piano fall
You can hear me commin down the hall

If i could just hear your pretty voice
I don't think I need to see it at all

Soft hair and a velvet tongue
I want to give you what you give to me

And every breath that is in your lungs
Is a tiny little gift to me

I didn't feel so bad
Till the sun went down

Then I come home
No one to wrap my arms around

Well any man with a microphone
Can tell you what he loves the most

And you know why you love at all
If you're thinking of the holy ghostback to top
Hotel Yorba
The White Stripes - Hotel Yorba



i was watchin
with one eye on the other side
i had 15 people tellin me to move
i got movin on my mind
i found shelter
in some thoughts turning wheels around
I said 39 times that I love you
to the beauty I have found

well it's 1 2 3 4
take the elevator
at the hotel yorba
I'll be glad to see you later
all they got inside in vacancy

I been thinking
of a little place down by the lake
they got a dirty little road leading up to the house
I wonder how long it will take
Till we're alone
sitting on the front porch of that home
stomping our feet on wooden boards
never gonna worry about locking the doors

well it's 1 2 3 4
take the elevator
at the hotel yorba
I'll be glad to see you later
all they got inside in vacancy

it might sound silly
for me to think childish thoughts like these
but i'm so tired of acting tough
im gonna do what i please
lets get married
in a big cathedral by a priest
'cause if i'm the man that you love the most
you could say "i do" at least

well it's 1 2 3 4
take the elevator
at the hotel yorba
I'll be glad to see you later
all they got inside in vacancy

and it's 4 5 6 7
grab your umbrella
grab hold of me
cos I'm your favourite fella
all they got inside is vacancyback to top
I'm Finding It Harder to Be a Gentleman
white stripes
i'm finding it harder to be a gentleman
album: white blood cells
submitted by m. burgess


Well I'm finding it harder
to be a gentleman every day
all the manners that I've been taught
have slowly died away
but if I held the door open for you
It would make your day

You think that I care
about me and only me
when every single girl needs help
climbing up a tree
well I know it don't take much
to satisfy me

Maybe it's whatever's in my mind
that's distracting me
but if i could find emotion
to stimulate devotion
well then you'd see

Well I'm finding it hard to say
that I need you twenty times a day
I feel comfortable so baby why
don't you feel the same?
have a doctor come and visit us
and tell us which one is sane

Well I never said I wouldn't
Throw my jacket in the mud for you
but my father gave it to me so
maybe I should carry you
then you said
"You almost dropped me"
so then I did
and I got mud on my shoesback to top
Fell in Love With a Girl
fell in love with a girl
fell in love once and almost completely
she's in love with the world
but sometimes these feelings
can be so misleading
she turns and says "are you alright?"
I said "I must be fine cause my hearts still beating"
she says "come and kiss me by the riverside,
bobby says it's fine
he don't consider it cheating"

red hair with a curl
mellow roll for the flavour
and the eyes for peeping
can't keep away from the girl
these two sides of my brain
need to have a meeting
can't think of anything to do
my left brain knows that
all love is fleeting
she's just looking for something new
and I said it once before
and it bares repeatingback to top
Expecting
your mouth said this never
but your fingers have shown me
That your head is so clever
You claim that you own me
forever

You have the right to conduct me
In whatever fashion
Your attempt to construct me
in the interest of passion
you sent me
to toledo

I came back with handfulls
I did what you asked me
But after the thank yous
That you quickly got passed me
I'm expected
you're expecting
I'm expected

Key of F Major

Well, you're in your little room
And you're working on something good
But if it's really good
You're gonna need a bigger room
And when you're in the bigger room
You might not know what to do
You might have to think of
How you got started
Sittin' in your little room

The Union Forever
The White Stripes - The Union Forever



Track:7
Lyrics:Jack White

It can't be love
For there is no true love
It can't be love
For there is no true love

Sure I'm C.F.K
But you gotta love me
The cost no man can say
But you gotta love me

Well I'm sorry, but I'm not interested in
Gold mines, oil wells, shipping, or real estate
What would I liked to have been?
Everything you hate...

There is a man
A certain man
And for the poor
You may be sure
That he'll do all he can
Who is this one?
(Who's favorite son?)
Just by his action
Has the traction
Magnets on the run
Who likes to smoke?
Enjoys a joke?
And wouldn't get
A bit upset
If he were broke
With wealth and fame
He's still the same
I'll bet you five
You're not alive
If you don't know his name

You said the union forever
You said the union forever
You cried the union forever
But that was untrue girl...back to top
The Same Boy You've Always Known

Track:8
Lyrics:Jack White

You fell down of course
And then got up of course
And started over
Forgot my name of course
Then you started to remember
Pretty tough to think about
The beginning of December
Pretty tough to think about
Pretty tough to think about
Yeah Yeah!
Pretty tough to think about

You're looking down again
And then you look me over
We're laying down again
In a blanket in the clover
Same boy you've always know
Well I guess I haven't grown
Same boy you've always known

Think of what the past did
It could've lasted
So put it in your basket
I hope you know a strong man
Who can lend you a hand
Lowering my casket

I thought this is just today
And soon you'd be returning
The coldest blue ocean water
Cannot stop my heart and mind from burning
Everyone who's in the know says
Says that's exactly how it goes
And if there's anything about me
I'm the only one who knowsback to top
We're Going to Be Friends
fall is here, hear the yell
back to school, ring the bell
brand new shoes, walking blues
climb the fence, books and pens
i can tell that we are gonna be friends
i can tell that we are gonna be friends

walk with me, suzy lee
through the park and by the tree
we will rest upon the ground
and look at all teh bugs we've found
then safely to school without a sound
then safely to school without a sound

weel here we, no one else
we walked to school all by ourselves
there's dirt on our uniforms
from chasing all teh ants and worms
we clean up and now it's time to learn
we clean up and now it's time to learn

numbers, letters, learn to spell
nouns, and books and show and tell
at playtime we throw the ball
back to class, through the hall
teacher marks our height against the wall
teacher marks our height against the wall

we don't notice any time pass
we don't notice anything
we sit side by side in every class
teacher thinks that i sound funny
but she likes the way you sing

tonight i'll dream while i'm in bed
when silly thought go through my head
about the bugs and alphabet
and when i wake tomorrow i'll bet
that you and i will walk together again
cause i can tell that we are gonna be friends
yes i can tell that we are gonna be friends.back to top
Offend in Every Way
White Stripes
Offended In Every Way

I'm patient of this plan
as humble as I can
I'll wait another day
before I turn away
but know this much is true
no matter what I do
offend in every way
I don't know what to say

I'm coming through the door
but they're expecting more
of an interesting man
sometimes I think I can
but how much can I fake
I'll speak until I break
with every word I say
offend in every way
You tell me to relax
and listen to these facts
that everyone's my friend
and will be till the end
but know this much is true
no matter what I do
no matter what I say
offend in every wayback to top
I Think I Smell a Rat
This is a short song so it's easy to learn k

The beginning starts with a little guitar and drums then it's
the first verse:


Oh I think I smell a rat
I think I smell a rat
All you little kids
Seem to think you know
Just where it's at
I think I smell a rat
Walking down the street
Carrying a baseball bat
I think I smell a rat

(Then another guitar and drums and then it's the second verse)

Oh I think I smell a rat
I think I smell a rat
All you little kids seem to
Think you know just
Where it's at
I think I smell a rat
Treating your mother and father
Like a welcome mat
I think I smell a rat

There ya go you're welcome.back to top
I Can't Wait
short song.


I can't wait 'til you
Try to come back girl
When things they don't
Work out for you
Who do you think you're
Messing with girl?
What do you think
You're trying to do?

First you said I was blind
You certainly took your time
I thought you made up your mind?

So many times I've gotten
used to this
This old idea
Of being all alone
Tell me how I'm supposed to
Get through with this?
I wish this house felt like a home




done.you're welcome as alwaysback to top
Now Mary
short song man! LEARN IT.



Now Mary
Can't you find a way
To bring me down?



I'm so sorry
That I had to go
And let you down



Knowing you I'll think
Things are gonna be fine
But then again you'll
Probably change your mind



I'm so sorry Mary but
being your mate
means trying to find something
That you aren't going to hate



What a reason
To be beautiful
Without a reason

done you're welcome.back to top
I Can Learn
fun song k.learn it.



I wish we
Were stuck up a tree
Then we'd know
It's nicer below

I don't know any lullabys
I don't know how
To make you mine
But I can learn
In lonely days long ago
I saw lovers put on a show
Well now it's my turn

Drive you home
Then wait by the phone
For that call
And a walk in the fall

No harm will come of this
One little midnight kiss
It will not burn
Too many lonely days
I feel like a throw away
Well now it's my turn

Falling down
Is no longer around
Feeling sun
I'm no longer one
Well isn't this fun?





hmm.you're welcome.back to top
This Protector
amazing song man.encourages.


I never knew that I had to be this protector
So many thoughts inside my head
A strange collector
But now
Now
You thought you heard a sound
There's no one else around
Looking at the door
It's coming through the floor

300 people living out in
West Virginia have no idea
Of all these thoughts that lie
Within you but now
Now




there ya go...........u r very welcome again.back to top
