    Rainbow's End
    Album: Alan Price. Posted by hollyh

    It's all just a dream...
    Walkin' down the streets inflamed
    I close my eyes and feel ashamed
    The world is turning out to be just like an open drain
    Killers here and sinners there
    The buildings ache with disrepair
    The streets are filled with this tortured 20th century's stain

    The crowd enjoys the suicide show
    Tells the man to jump into the streets below
    The siren chorus are joining in the fun
    The wino in the basement dump
    Hears the body on his trashcan thump
    Now's the time for the father to collect your son

    Will I ever live in Rainbow's End
    Where everyone is everybody's friend
    And the world of care is left behind
    And happiness is easy to find
    Will I ever live in Rainbow's End
    It's all just a dream...

    Will I ever live in Rainbow's End
    Where everyone is everybody's friend
    Where happiness is easy to find
    And the world of care is left behind
    Will I ever live in Rainbow's End
    It's all just a dream...

    The sun shines on suburban wives
    Who live their alcoholic lives
    In hazy, lazy days going old, confined, and mad
    And their husbands are executives
    The title means just more credit to live
    They hold their kids and say
    What a wonderful time we're going to have

    Will I ever live in Rainbow's End
    Where everyone is everybody's friend
    Where happiness is easy to find
    And the world of care is left behind
    Will I ever live in Rainbow's End...[repeat]

    Rosetta
    By Mike Snow
    Posted by hollyh


    Well my little girl is a sweet little girl
    But she does things make your eyebrows curl:
    You let her loose on a Friday night
    You know it's gonna end in a fight.

    Rosetta drinks her whiskey neat
    She gets in a fight and she might get beat:
    So I go round on the Saturday night
    And ask her if she feel allright.

    Rosetta are you better
    Are you well well well
    Rosetta are you better
    Are you well well well
    Well well well
    Well well well

    When Friday comes she's fine again
    So we go to a club where we got friends:
    Knocked on the door but we couldn't get in
    'Cos the boss don't want no fuss.

    So we went up town and drank around
    And Rosie ended on the ground
    So I took her home and I put her to bed
    And you can guess what I said.

    Rosetta are you better
    Are you well well well
    Rosetta are you better
    Are you well well well
    Well well well
    Well well well
