  • The Silly Symphonies Opera House

    My Opera House is dead without the denizens of the Fun & Games Lounge to occupy it, so I'm re-opening it here! Love to sing online? Then let your favorite lyrics, poetry, odes, quotations, and whatever else ring forth here! (And get post-count for it at the same time!)

    To start us off:

    When the moon fell in love with the sun
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night

    When the sun found the moon
    She was drinking tea in a garden
    Under the green umbrella trees
    In the middle of summer

    When the moon found the sun
    He looked like he was barely hanging on
    But her eyes saved his life
    In the middle of summer (summer)

    In the middle of summer
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    Summer (summer)
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    Summer, summer, summer, summer
    All was golden when the day met the night

    So he said, "Would it be all right
    If we just sat and talked for a little while
    If in exchange for your time
    I give you this smile?"

    So she said, "That's okay
    As long as you can make a promise
    Not to break my little heart
    Or leave me all alone in the summer."

    Well he was just hanging around
    Then he fell in love
    And he didn't know how
    But he couldn't get out
    Just hanging around
    Then he fell in love

    In the middle of summer
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    Summer
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night
    Summer, summer, summer, summer
    When the moon fell in love with the sun
    All was golden in the sky
    All was golden when the day met the night

    Summer, summer, summer, summer
    In the middle of summer, summer, summer, summer
    The middle of summer, summer, summer, summer
    The middle of summer, summer, summer, summer
    In the middle of . . .

    Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

    Allow me to re-introduce myself...

    The Biltmore garage wants a grand
    But we ain't got a grand on hand.
    And they now got a lock on the door
    To the gym at P.S. 84.
    There's the stock room behind the McCloskey's bar.
    But Mrs. McCloskey ain't a good scout.
    And things being how they are
    The back of the police station is out!
    So the Biltmore garage is the spot.
    But the one thousand bucks we ain't got.
    Why it's good old reliable Nathan!
    Nathan, Nathan, Nathan, Detroit!
    If you're looking for action, his firm is the spot.
    Even when the heat is on, it's never too hot.
    Not for good old reliable Nathan!
    Where it's always just a short walk
    To the oldest established, permanent floating,
    Crap game in New York

    There are well-heeled shooters everywhere, everywhere
    There are well-heeled shooters everywhere.
    And an awful lot of lettuce
    For the fella who can get us there.
    If we only had a lousy little grand
    We could be a millionaire!
    That's good old reliable Nathan!
    Nathan, Nathan, Nathan, Detroit!
    If the size of your bundle you want to increase
    He'll arrange that you go broke in quiet and peace
    In a hideout provided by Nathan
    Where there are no neighbors to squawk.
    It's the oldest established permanent floating
    Crap game in New York.
    Where's the action? Where's the game?
    Gotta have the game
    Of we'll die from shame.
    It's the oldest established, permanent floating
    Crap game in New York!

        Heaven bend to take my hand
        And lead me through the fire
        Be the long awaited answer
        To a long and painful fight
        Truth be told I tried my best
        But somewhere along the way
        I got caught up in all there was to offer
        And the cost was so much more than I could bear

        Though I've tried I've fallen
        I have sunk so low
        I messed up
        Better I should know
        So don't come round here and
        Tell me I told you so

        We all begin with good intent
        When love is raw and young
        We believe that we can change ourselves
        The past can be undone
        But we carry on our back the burdens time always reveals
        In the lonely light of morning
        In the wound that would not heal
        It's the bitter taste of losing everything
        I've held so dear

        Though I've tried I've fallen
        I have sunk so low
        I messed up
        Better I should know
        So don't come round here and
        Tell me I told you so

        Heaven bend to take my hand
        I've nowhere left to turn
        I'm lost to those I thought were friends
        To everyone I know
        Oh they turn their heads embarrassed
        Pretend that they don't see
        That it's one misstep, one slip before you know it
        And there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

        Though I've tried I've fallen
        I have sunk so low
        I messed up
        Better I should know
        So don't come round here and
        Tell me I told you so
        I messed up
        Better I should know
        So don't come round here and
        Tell me I told you so

          YAY! ^o^

          For all those times you stood by me
          For all the truth that you made me see
          For all the joy you brought to my life
          For all the wrongs that you made right
          For every dream you made come true
          For all the love I found in you
          I'll be forever thankful Baby
          You're the one who held me up
          And never let me fall
          You're the one who saw me through
          Through it all

          You were my strength when I was weak
          You were my voice when I couldn't speak
          You were my eyes when I couldn't see
          You saw the best there was in me
          Lifted me up when I couldn't see
          You gave me faith cause you believed
          I'm everything I am because you loved me

          You gave me wings and made me fly
          You touched my hand, I could touch the sky
          I lost my faith, You gave it back to me
          You said no star was out of reach
          You stood by me and I stood tall
          I had your love I had it all
          I'm greatful for each day you gave me
          Maybe I don't know that much
          But I know this much is true
          I was blessed because I was loved by you
          Oooh

          You were always there for me
          The tender wind that carried me
          A light in the dark
          Shining your love into my life
          You've been my inspiration
          Through the lies you were the truth
          My world is a better place because of you!

          (You were my strength when I was weak)-You were my strength!
          (My voice when I couldn't speak)-Oh when I couldn't speak!
          (You were my eyes when I couldn't see)
          You saw the best there was in me
          Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
          You gave me faith cause you believed
          I'm everything I am because you loved me

          Hey, Yeah!!!

          (You were my strength when I was weak)
          (You were my voice when I couldn't speak)
          (You were my eyes when I couldn't see)
          You saw the best there was in me!!
          (Lifted me up when I couldn't reach)
          (You gave me faith cause)you believed

          I'm everything I am because you loved me
          Ohhh
          I'm everything I am...
          Because you loved me

            Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

            Today is the day when I see clear
            a tiny thread of smoke appear
            Where blue skies border on the ocean
            And a ship is set in motion.

            All the while I sing this song
            I see a dot on the horizon
            growing bigger every second
            gleaming white in my direction.

            Who on earth can it be
            coming up the path for me
            What on earth will I say
            Shall I run to him or run away?

            Freaking out he's come to get me
            or my feet are stuck but just won't let me
            run to him, do I dare
            Madame Butterfly, don't blow it

            Calling Butterfly, Madame Butterfly
            that's the name he used to call give
            He's my man till the day I die
            Oh sweet butterfly, so sweet butterfly
            she's waiting
            He'll be back, I have faith in this love track.

              You come out at night
              That's when the energy comes
              And the dark side's light
              And the vampires roam
              You strut your rasta wear
              And your suicide poem
              And a cross from a faith
              That died before Jesus came
              You're building a mystery

              You live in a church
              Where you sleep with voodoo dolls
              And you won't give up the search
              For the ghosts in the halls
              You wear sandals in the snow
              And a smile that won't wash away
              Can you look out the window
              Without your shadow getting in the way
              You're so beautiful
              With an edge and a charm
              But so careful
              When I'm in your arms

              'Cause you're working
              Building a mystery
              Holding on and holding it in
              Yeah you're working
              Building a mystery
              And choosing so carefully

              You woke up screaming aloud
              A prayer from your secret god
              You feed off our fears
              And hold back your tears
              You give us a tantrum
              And a know-it-all grin
              Just when we need one
              When the evening's thin
              Oh you're so beautiful
              You beautiful ****ed-up man
              You're setting up your
              Razor-wire shrine

              'Cause you're working
              Building a mystery
              Holding on and holding it in
              Yeah you're working
              Building a mystery
              And choosing so carefully

              You're building a mystery

                Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

                I was working in the lab late one night
                When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
                For my monster from his slab began to rise
                And suddenly to my surprise


                He did the mash
                He did the monster mash
                The monster mash
                It was a graveyard smash
                He did the mash
                It caught on in a flash
                He did the mash
                He did the monster mash


                From my laboratory in the castle east
                To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
                The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
                To get a jolt from my electrodes


                They did the mash
                They did the monster mash
                The monster mash
                It was a graveyard smash
                They did the mash
                It caught on in a flash
                They did the mash
                They did the monster mash


                The zombies were having fun
                The party had just begun
                The guests included Wolf Man
                Dracula and his son


                The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
                Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
                The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
                With their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"


                They played the mash
                They played the monster mash
                The monster mash
                It was a graveyard smash
                They played the mash
                It caught on in a flash
                They played the mash
                They played the monster mash


                Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring
                Seems he was troubled by just one thing
                He opened the lid and shook his fist
                And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?"


                It's now the mash
                It's now the monster mash
                The monster mash
                And it's a graveyard smash
                It's now the mash
                It's caught on in a flash
                It's now the mash
                It's now the monster mash


                Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
                And my monster mash is the hit of the land
                For you, the living, this mash was meant too
                When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you


                Then you can mash
                Then you can monster mash
                The monster mash
                And do my graveyard smash
                Then you can mash
                You'll catch on in a flash
                Then you can mash
                Then you can monster mash

                    Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

                    That's it. The trees are dancing and singing right now, and the wind is breathing like a divinity, so it's time for Loreena's "Mummers' Dance":

                    When in the Springtime of the year
                    When the trees are crowned with leaves
                    When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew
                    Are dressed in ribbons fair

                    When owls call the breathless moon
                    In the blue veil of the night
                    The shadows of the trees appear
                    Amidst the lantern light

                    We've been rambling all of the night
                    And some time of this day
                    And now returning back again
                    We bring a garland gay

                    Who will go down to those shady groves
                    And summon the shadows there
                    And tie a ribbon on those sheltering arms
                    In the springtime of the year

                    The songs of birds seem to fill the wood
                    That when the fiddler plays
                    All their voices can be heard
                    Long past their woodland days

                    We've been rambling all of the night
                    And some time of this day
                    And now returning back again
                    We bring a garland gay

                    And so they linked their hands and danced
                    Round in circles and in rows
                    And so the journey of the night descends
                    When all the shades are gone

                    A garland gay we bring you here
                    And at your door we stand
                    It is a sprout well budded out
                    The work of Our Lord's hand

                    We've been rambling all of the night
                    And some time of this day
                    And now returning back again
                    We bring a garland gay

                      Threw some chords together
                      The combination D-E-F
                      Is who I am, is what I do
                      And I was gonna lay it down for you
                      Try to focus my attention
                      But I feel so A-D-D
                      I need some help, some inspiration
                      (But it's not coming easily)
                      Whoah oh...

                      Trying to find the magic
                      Trying to write a classic

                      Read some Byron, Shelly and Keats
                      Recited it over a Hip-Hop beat
                      I'm having trouble saying what I mean
                      With dead poets and drum machines
                      I know I had some studio time booked
                      But I couldn't find a killer hook
                      Now you've gone & raised the bar right up

                      My naked soul exposes
                      Whoah.. oh.. oh.. oh.. Whoah.. oh..

                        You do something to me,
                        Something that simply mystifies me.
                        Tell me, why should it be
                        You have the power to hypnotize me?
                        Let me live 'neath your spell,
                        Do do that voodoo
                        That you do so well.
                        For you do something to me
                        that nobody else could do!

                          I dig my toes into the sand
                          The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds strewn across a blue blanket
                          I lean against the wind, pretend that I am weightless
                          And in this moment I am happy
                          Happy

                          I wish you were here
                          I wish you were here
                          I wish you were here
                          I wish you were...here

                          I lay my head onto the sand
                          The sky resembles a back-lit canopy with holes punched in it
                          I'm counting UFO's, I signal them with my lighter
                          And in this moment i am happy
                          Happy

                          I wish you were here
                          I wish you were here
                          I wish you were...here
                          Wish you were here

                          The world's a rollercoaster
                          And I am not strapped in
                          Maybe I should hold with care
                          But my hands are busy in the air

                          I wish you were here
                          I wish you were...
                          I wish you were here
                          I wish you were here
                          I wish you were...here
                          Wish you were here
                          Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
                          Golly, what a day

                            Nature's first green is gold,
                            Her hardest hue to hold.
                            Her early leaf's a flower;
                            But only so an hour.
                            Then leaf subsides to leaf.
                            So Eden sank to grief,
                            So dawn goes down today.
                            Nothing gold can stay.

                              What I love most about rivers is,
                              You can't step in the same river twice
                              The water's always changing always flowing.
                              But people, I guess, can't live with that
                              We all must pay a price
                              To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing
                              What's around the riverbend;
                              Waiting just around the riverbend.

                              I look once more,
                              Just around the riverbend.
                              Beyond the shore,
                              Where the gulls fly free.
                              Don't know what for;
                              What I dream the day might send,
                              Just around the riverbend
                              For me.
                              Coming for me.

                              I feel it there beyond those trees,
                              Or right behind these waterfalls.
                              Can I ignore that sound of distant drumming
                              For a handsome sturdy husband who builds handsome sturdy walls?
                              And never dreams that something might be coming
                              Just around the riverbend,
                              Just around the riverbend.
                              I look once more
                              Just around the riverbend.
                              Beyond the shore,
                              Somewhere past the sea.
                              Don't know what for...
                              Why do all my dreams extend
                              Just around the riverbend?
                              Just around the riverbend...

                              Should I choose the smoothest curve
                              Steady as the beating drum?
                              Should I marry Kocoum?
                              Is all my dreaming at an end?
                              Or do you still wait for me, Dream Giver?
                              Just around the riverbend?
