Near a tree by a river
There's a hole in the ground
Where an old man of Aran
Goes around and around
And his mind is a beacon
In the veil of the night
For a strange kind of fashion
There's a wrong and a right
But he'll never, never fight over you

On account of all the seriousness
You say you're so happy now
You can hardly stand
Lean over on the bookcase
If you really want to get straight
Read norman mailer

But say a prayer to pray for the other ones
At Christmastime
It's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears

And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime

The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Oh, where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?


1. "the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears". Really? The ONLY water in Afrcia are tears? How about some of the longest rivers on the planet - Nile, Congo, Niger? Faily sure they ahve water int hem.

2. "And the Christmas bells that ring there. Are the clanging chimes of doom" Nope, fairly sure they have standard, non doom, christmas bells there.

3. "And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime" No snow in Africa? At Christmas? Presumably you haven't heard of the Atlas mountains. YOU FVCKING MORONS

4. "Oh, where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow" Nothing grows? Really? Outside of some desert regions i think you'll find quite a lot of things grow in Africa. See the jungle for more details.

5. "Do they know it's Christmastime at all?" Well given that Africa has some of the largest Christian communities on the planet, im going to guess that they're aware of the anniversary fo the birth of the son of God.

In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
Butane in my veins so I'm out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs, spray paint the vegetables
food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
Kill the headlights and put it in neutral
Stock car flamin' with a loser and the cruise control
Baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
Got a couple of couches sleep on the love seat
Someone keeps sayin' I'm insane to complain
About a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
Don't believe everything that you read
You get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face with some mace in the dark
Savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?

'Goodbye England's rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
You called out to our country
And you whispered to those in pain
Now you belong to heaven
And the stars spell out your name'

Another Bon Jovi one, this time from “Dead or Alive”:

“Sometimes you tell the day
By the bottle that you drink
And times when you're all alone all you do is think”

I suppose you could tell the day based on the bottle that you drink, but only if you drink the same thing on the same day of the week, every week. Monday is lager top, Tuesday is IrnBru, Wednesday is turpentine, Thursday is elderflower and lime, and so forth.

But it still seems like an awful lot of bother for something pretty basic. And what if your preferred tipple comes in a can? Didn’t think of that did you Jon Bon? Eh?

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...don't you think
A little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do think...

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

Kick off, throw in, have a little scrimmage,
Keep it low, a splendid rush, bravo, win or die;
On the ball, City, never mind the danger,
Steady on, now’s your chance,
Hurrah! We’ve scored a goal.
