AS TIME GOES BY
Music and lyrics by
Herman Hupfeld

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo
They still say, "I love you."
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date.
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate.
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Summary of: 'CASABLANCA'

Sad 'Bogie' plays Rick Blaine,
Lost, joyless, full of pain; then Ilsa Lund returns.
Ingrid Bergman plays the woman
For whom he yearns.

They'd been soul-mates years ago,
And he still loves her, though
She's wed another guy,
The film is set in World War Two,
A time gone by.

Sam sings a love song
On emotivity,
Blaine just loves Sam's song,
So in that moment he
Wants Madame Lund to stay,
The catch? She's got a guy,
O my, O my, O my.

That fellow needs a visa
To leave with wifey 'Lisa',
(Well, 'Ilsa' doesn't rhyme!)
They ask Blaine, "Would you give us letters?"
To aid the crime.

So, poor sod just waves her off too sadly,
It made us cry.

THE TIGER
by Hilaire Belloc

The tiger, on the other hand,
Is kittenish and mild,
And makes a pretty playfellow
For any little child.
And mothers of large families
(Who claim to common sense)
Will find a tiger well repays
The trouble and expense.

THE TIGER

This extra happy Tiger,
Is athletic and lean.
Folklorically, I'll always perform
Infallibly there on the green.
Call me Mr. Damn Humble Woods,
For after, when the day is done,
I go deposit in the selected bank
The estimated millions won!

Two One Four
(Rivermaya)

Am I real?
Do the words I speak before you make you feel
That the love I have for you
Will see no ending?
Well if you look into my eyes
Then you should know
That there is nothing here to doubt
Nothing to fear
And you can lay your questions down
'Cause if you'll hold me
We can fade into the night
And you'll know
The world could die
And everything may lie
Still you shouldn't cry
'Cause time may pass
But longer than it'll last
I'll be by your side
Take my hand
And gently close your eyes
So you could understand
That there's no greater love tonight
Than what I've for you
Well, if you feel the same way for me
Then let go
We can journey to a garden no one knows
Life is short, my darling
Tell me that you love me
So we can fade into the night
And you'll know
The world could die
And everything may lie
But you won't cry
'Cause time may pass
And everything won't last
But I'll be by your side
Forever by your side
So you won't cry

Foe Outworn
(Army Rave I)

Me, a Liar?
Wifehood troublemaker? You fake eyed posse?
Ah! Verve loth, oft I hate you╔
Sing none, die well!
O Ye emotions! We fly, you kill
Unhook the sly wound
out tonight, beneath the riot herds
Fate or nothing
you annoy a rancid quest, o sly wound
I fly╔ loud echoes maul
Then nothing. We act, I fade
A loudly known
Deluded ol' witch or
My ingrate devil hyena
Snooty, sully, rut child!
Space amuses amity
Tell no gallant bi-truths
Your lie idly ebbs
A naked myth
Neglect yo' unreal odyssey
A scudded loony outruns
Nothing agree╔ threats the tot lover!
Hate for vanity (Uh, ow)
Woo, fuel me ethereal faye! Fly! Swim!
Then let go
Jeer scorned one, go away to an unknown
Misery fights and I roll
To lovely emulate them
So then nothing. We act, I fade
A loudly known
Deluded ol' witch or
My ingrate devil hyena
Ow, bouncy rutty
Space amuses amity
Hand-tying won't ever last
But your lie idly ebbs
Desire over fury, boy!
Yo' worst un-coy!

Love is not a thing to understand.
Love is not a thing to feel.
Love is not a thing to give and receive.
Love is a thing only to become
And eternally be.

Not man to lead,
Not a living leader to vote for,
Not even a notable artist,
Not the living legend,
Not a living societies voice.
He edgy,
He's only...
Bush

Love is not a thing to understand.
Love is not a thing to feel.
Love is not a thing to give and receive.
Love is a thing only to become
And eternally be.

Evil is not gentle on the eye
Evil is not good for the heart
Evil is not content and giving
Evil can be about everyman's ills
And hate... a lot. Not good.

From a translation of Dante's Divine Comedy

Through me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.

Justice the founder of my fabric mov'd:
To rear me was the task of power divine,
Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.

Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
All hope abandon ye who enter here.

Such characters in colour dim I mark'd
Over a portal's lofty arch inscrib'd:
Whereat I thus: Master, these words import.

Words that strike fear into the heart

Ever seen a message
located over a door
convincing those who enter
our mortality is sure?

Misery's the watchword
each day's a day of pain
to suffer it a given
once more and once again.

Help is not forthcoming.
Each thought must be of death;
Life perhaps has slipped away
Left you, as has breath.

Our memory will not be dimm'd
Nor allowed to die;
Every proper person knows
Arbeit Macht Frei

Reject a murderous movement
Thus nurture an improvement;
Hitler fell on open minds.
