youtube is your friend. mick n keef are mine

As usual, Blogger won't let me embed a video so I'll give you the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brpub0hTbjs. It's clips from the Charlie Brown-Peanuts set to Outkast's "Hey Ya". I'm a huge Outkast fan, but even if you aren't, it's pretty clever.

The next, ahem, recipient of the Greatest Lyrics Ever my personal Hall of Fame induction is the incomparable and ridiculously sexable Rolling Stones. This is a funny, bluesy one I've been digging as of late..."The Girl with the Faraway Eyes".


I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield
Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station
And the preacher said, "You know you always have the Lord by your side"
And I was so pleased to be informed of this that I ran
Twenty red lights in his honor
Thank you Jesus
Thank you Lord


I had an arrangement to meet a girl, and I was kind of late
And I thought by the time I got there she'd be off
She'd be off with the nearest truck driver she could find
Much to my surprise, there she was sittin in the corner
A little bleary, worse for wear and tear
Was a girl with far away eyes


So if you're down on your luck
And you can't harmonize
Find a girl with far away
And if you're downright disgusted
And life ain't worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes


Well the preacher kept right on saying that all I had to do was send
Ten dollars to the church of the sacred bleeding heart of Jesus
Located somewhere in Los Angeles, California
And next week they'd say my prayer on the radio
And all my dreams would come true

So I did, the next week, I got a prayer with a girl
Well, you know what kind of eyes she got


So if you're down on your luck
I know you all sympathize
Find a girl with far away eyes
And if you're downright disgusted
And life ain't worth a dime
Get a girl with far away eyes
