The Cure, Jimi, and..no idea whatsoever, lol

Hmm, I'm a big Hendrix fan, and I don't recognize that second one. The third one looks like Marquee Moon by Television.

RE: A few lyrics from a song you may like.
Going back even further than my Cole Porter lyrics. Here's some Gilbert and Sullivan.



I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical;
I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical,
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical,
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news,
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: A few lyrics from a song you may like.
The following always resonated with me (mostly the last two lines):

When I was young
My heart was young then, too
Anything that it would tell me
That's the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing that I want most in life's
The thing that I can't win

from Snowbird by Anne Murray

From "That's my Pa" about 1956 or so.
The roads got mighty crooked on a Saturday night.
He said "I can dive deeper and come up dryer"
And he did it too right off that wagon seat!

I think it's called "The burning of the midnight lamp" or something similar.

Help, Thumpy?

And I have no idea who "Marquee Moon" is...

Marquee Moon is the song (also name of the album). The band is Television. They were a short-lived punk/new wave band from the late 70s/early 80s or thereabouts. They only made two albums, and were under most people's radar. Their singing was an acquired taste, but very good guitar playing -- which is why I hesitate to call them a punk band. Most punk guitarists were proud of only knowing two or three chords. Television had two pretty talented guitarists. Tom Verlaine was one (and also their lead singer, if I remember correctly). I can't remember the other one.

Well I'm gonna miss your lovin'
And your perfume and your smile...

I'm gonna miss you stealin' all my booze
And talkin' all the while...

I'm gonna miss you cleanin' round the home
And helpin' with my blues...

You know I think I'll get myself a maid
And take her on a cruise...yeah

When I was a young boy
they said you're only gettin' older
but how was I to know then
that they'd be cryin' on my shoulder

Put your money in a big house
get yourself a pretty wife
She'll collect your life insurance
when she connects you with a knife

Somebody get the doctor,
I'm feelin' pretty poor,
somebody get the stretcher
before I hit the floor

I drink alone
With nobody else
I drink alone
All by myself
and when I drink alone I prefer to be by myself!

RE: A few lyrics from a song you may like.
You may screw their brains
You may sacrifice them, too

You may mortify their flesh
You may rape them all

One day the tortured stand up
And revolt against the evil

They make you drink your blood
And tear yourself to pieces

Come on man, let's stand up all over the world
Let's plug a bomb in everyone's arse

If they don't keep us alive - we're gonna fight for the right
Build a wall with the bodies of the dead - and you're saved

Make the world scared - come on, show me the sign of victory
