    It wasn't very large
    There was just enough room to cram the drums
    In the corner over by the dodge
    It was a fifty-four
    With a mashed up door
    And a cheesy little amp
    With a sign on the front said
    "fender champ"
    And a second-hand guitar
    It was a stratocaster with a whammy bar

    February morning, my car won't start today
    I turned the key at 8: 03 and the battery passed away

    Leroy, boy, is that you?
    I thought your post hanging days were through.

    Turn down the lights
    Turn down the bed
    Turn down these voices inside my head.

    She packed by bag last night, preflight
    Zero hour, nine a.m.
    And I'm gonna be high
    As a kite by then

    I said a hip hop
    Hippie to the hippie
    The hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it out
    Bubba to the bang bang boogie, boobie to the boogie
    To the rhythm of the boogie the beat.

    I pulled into Nazareth (PA!), was feeling 'bout half past dead
    I just need some place where I can lay my head
    Hey, mister, can you tell me, where a man might find a bed?
    He just grinned and shook my hand, "No" was all he said.…

    Or you could try:

    Get up out your rocking chair Grandma,
    Or rather: would you like to dance grandmother....

    My favorite is Jack White's "Hypocritical Kiss" where he says: "My temper got the best of me, and when I say that I mean I know every single thing that I said was true".

    I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel
    There's a voice in my head that drives my heel...

    "Heard it from a Friend who.... Heard it from a Friend who.... Heard it from another you've been messing around!"

    Not my favorite REO song but I always liked the intro and ending.... that's quite a hook.

    Let me run with you tonight
    I'll take you on a moonlight ride
    There's someone I used to see
    But she don't give a damn for me

    There was a little girl, I used to know her
    I still think about her, time to time
    There was a moment when I really loved her
    Then one day the feeling just died

    Stand back from me honey
    Because I don't know what I might do next
    No I'm surprised by this, frightened by this
    Nothin' ever got me so out of my head, baby
