I am compiling the lyrics of Honeycomb for our site. Won't you help correct my many mistakes and omissions below? Thanks in advance, and retroactive thanks to frog in the sand for his help on Saturday.




Selkie Bride

Human form she had in Crescent City
She showed me her pity, lucky me
In a storm so bad, the worst of the autumn
She came from the bottom of the sea

Please won't you stay a while
Give me your coat
Then we'll fall in love in my boat
You'll be my Selkie Bride

Please give me no denial
A promise I give, I'll forsake the life that I live
Now you're by my side
If you return again
I'll be the saddest man
My lips will burn your skin
If you return again
Please don't return again
Please don't return again
Please don't return again

Human form she had in Crescent City
She showed me her pity, lucky me
On that day, so sad, breezy and sunny
She melted like honey in the sea

------------

I Burn Today

I knew a girl with sad blue eyes
But at the feast I lost my psychic prize
I did forget what the tarot maid did say
I burn today, I burn today

Our house was filled with many birds
She said to me, I can understand their words
The land will shake, so run away
I burn today, I burn today
Yes today I will burn for the times I did not learn

She said, Have fun, this time has come
Pull my heartstrings and have your self a strum
No never more this song will we play
I burn today, I burn today

And as I drank in old Paris
She lay her cards just to see what she could see
Down by the water you'll find your happy days
I burn today, I burn today
Yes today I will burn for the times I did not learn

I ran so fast into the North
No snow on me and so he said thence forth
I let snow fall on frozen yesterday
I burn today, I burn today

If my head, my head is hanging down
I feel her arms and her legs are all around
And we make love beside the water way
I burn today, I burn today
Yes today I will burn for the times I did not learn

Behold the rose of Jericho
How many lives I really do not know
Though with the rain I know it will return
Today I burn, Today I burn

------------

Lone Child

I don't like you much
I am like a wolf
I'm not full of your hate
I'm full of my grace
See in my face
I am a king

See the empty stage
See there's nothing there
Save your ounce of despair
Your once wasted air
Your devil-may-care poisonings

Lone child, born wild
No childish things
Lone child, born wild
No tribal strings

I'll be moving on, creeping off the stage
I'll be tearing you out, tearing you down
I'm growling now in the wings

Lone child, born wild
No childish things
Lone child, born wild
No tribal strings

---------

Another Velvet Nightmare

Today I felt my heart slide into my belly
So I puked it up with liquor and I slept right where I lay
And I dreamed the backs of cards for the faces were not telling
No, I never have felt sicker
And I do not want to wake

Here comes another nightmare of you again
Another velvet nightmare come true again
I should have seen it coming
Oh, please don't let it end
My nightmare of you again

No I never would have come here
But I my eyes they would not focus
So I took my last three dollars
And I spent them on a drink
I had visions of you, dear, but they floated without notice
All these drunkards do is holler
'Til this drunkard cannot think

A curtain falls
A scene grivoise
It seems your blue eyes listen

Here comes another nightmare of you again
Another velvet nightmare come true again
Oh, I should have seen it coming
Oh, please don't let it end
My nightmare of you again

---------

Dark End Of The Street

At the dark end of the street
That's where we'll always meet
Hiding in shadows where we don't belong
Living in darkness to hide alone

You and me
At the dark end of the street
You and me

I know ??? a ??? time is gonna take its toll
We have to pay for the love that we stole
It's a sin and we know it's wrong
Oh, but our love keeps coming on strong

Steal away to the dark end of the street

They're gonna find us, they're gonna find us
They're gonna find us, oh, someday

You and me
At the dark end of the street
You and me

When the daylight all goes around
And by chance we are both downtown
If we should meet, oh, just walk on by
Oh, my darling, please don't you cry

Tonight we will meet
At the dark end of the street

-------------

Go Find Your Saint

Had no life, I was feeling like some kind of unfinished project
I had a friend John, he said let me turn you on to the saint of Inanimate Objects
Go find, go find your saint

Pill by pill a miracle occurred
The whole world got better
How I prayed until I said the words I knew would upset her
She said off your knees and don't tarry I ain't gonna be what I ain't
Go find, go find your saint
Go find, go find your saint

I packed my bags
I never did look back
But I'm glad that I met her

Go find, go find your saint
Go find, go find your saint
Go find, go find your saint
Go find, go find your saint

the union was gone but I sang my songs at the Hall of the Felled Tree
Under the charm of the Saint's folded arms well I hope she can help me

----------

Song Of The Shrimp

I saw three shrimps in the water
And two were old and grey
So I swam a little closer
And I heard the third one say

Goodbye mammy shrimp
And Papa shake my hand
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me to Louisiane

He showed his mama and his papa papa papa papa papa papa papa
The shrimp newspaper he read
And there the advertisement
To all the young shrimps said

Free ride New Orleans
To stay in Grand Hotel
Meet Creole gals
That help you out of your shell

(solo)

Goodbye mammy shrimp
And Papa shake my hand
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me to Louisiane

His poor mama and his poor papa papa papa papa papa papa papa
They haven't heard from him yet
Last time they've seen his smiling face
Is when he jumped into the net

Goodbye mammy shrimp
And Papa shake my hand
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me to Louisiane
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me to Louisiane
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me ah take me

-----------

Strange Goodbye

I used to walk in a big black cloud
You took my hand and you led me out

A nest of demons played upon my chest
You picked me up and you laid them to rest

It's a pain, to be sure, we were aiming so high
It's so strange to be saying goodbye

We saw the world from an automobile

Saw the best view over 10,000 meals

Funny how an evening turns into years

Funny how we're laughing through all of these tears.

It's a pain, to be sure, we sure gave it a try
It's a shame to be saying goodbye

Oh my darling shall we have one more dance
A prayer to the raingod to give one more chance
The water will cleanse us, we spin on the plain
And take us to the ocean to find love again

It's a pain, to be sure, we were aiming so high
It's so strange to be saying goodbye

It's a pain that endures, we sure gave it a try
It's so strange to be saying goodbye

-----------

Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day

When there's nothing left to say
And all the clouds have faded away
And my mind wanders out there across the bay
Just to be there in the mornin'
With the sun comin through the trees
Well you know there ain't no place I'd rather be

Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day
You can feel the magic in the air
And when it's over and the clover has left the mountainside
You'll be king of what you survive

La la la la etc.

Sunday Sunny Mill Valley Groove Day
You will have a wonderful time up there
Yeah, when it's over and the clover has left the mountainside
You'll be king of what you survive

La la la la etc.

-----------

Honeycomb
(these are the only lyrics on the album, and they are lowercase)

the old churchyard is where I faded
she watched me while I fell unaided
and in my time when god's army came and got me
i could not find my honeycomb
i could not find my honeycomb
i could not find my honeycomb

cherry brown lips of maple
olive creams her eyes and face were
and in that town as i walk as a deserter
i could not find my honeycomb
i could not find my honeycomb

dance for god, dance for mating
the ritual of her figure eighting
and in my mind as i fly above the churchyard
i could not find my honeycomb
i could not find my honeycomb
i could not find my honeycomb

--------------

My Life Is In Storage


I had a castle, I had no hassles
Now tears are tassles, you're sure to know it
Just when you blow it, then you can stow it

My life is in storage, my life is in storage

Come take a voyage to personal storage
And we will forage, leashes for my hounds
My tools for my grounds, speakers for my sounds

My life is in storage, my life is in storage

Here are the pictures of permanent fixtures
Now they're just pictures lying in this stack
Baking in this shack of things I can't get back

My life is in storage, my life is in storage

What life has become, stored here for a sum
I hauled it, I feel dumb, got my lock and key
Paid a man his fee, now I wait and see

My life is in storage, my life is in storage

I believe in your perfect face, I believe in your place in the sun
Can we leave now this dusty space? can we have a little fun?

I was standing at the podium and though I was a little drunk
To the darkened auditorium, I delivered my funk
You were standing at the edge of the light, trying not to be too impressed
I was trying for the sake of the night, not to be too depressed
I called you on the telephone from a hotel in Beverly Hills
And though I was scared to the bone, you were giving me thrills

I believe in your perfect face, I believe in your place in the sun
Can we leave now this dusty space? Can we have a little fun?

--------

Atom In My Heart

Is there a place that you can't go back to?
Is there a town you can't even enter
Maybe there are whole states you don't even wanna pass through.
now you're feeling down your a weekly renter

Is your mind gone?
Are you dog tired?
Do you feel like it can't get no worse?
I'm a big guy, can we try this?
I will be the whole universe
and you'll be the center
You'll burn inside me like a star
An atom in my heart
An atom in my heart

Is your mind gone?
Are you dog tired?
Do you feel like it can't get no worse?
I'm a big guy, can we try this?
I will be the whole universe
and you'll be the center
You'll burn inside me like a star
An atom in my heart
An atom in my heart

I know a place, yeah it was made for you
The earth is warm
And the sky is tender

------

Violet

Violet, Violet
Violet's the color for me
Halfway between blood and the sky
Everything I want to see

Violet, Violet
Violet's the shakra for me
In the key of B at the top of her head
Seeking divinity

On my way to another place
I stop long enough to breathe

Violet, Violet
Violet's the flower for me
The ancient Greek symbol of love
Flower of fertility
Flower of fertility

-------

Sing For Joy





Georgie Porgie used to get real high
He used to kiss the world till it made him cry
He was under the bottle's command
But one winter he got it together and
Happiness came with the warmer weather laying across all the land

He had a love she also liked to drink
She got it together
But you know what I think?
I think she was still feeling glum

She took a gun and she shot him in the head
She shot herself and so they were wed as the air conditioner hummed

Sing for joy
Sing for laughs
Sing for joy
Sing for joy
If nothing else
Sing for joy

Mamma killed a pumpkin
She thought it was a sweet
She put it on the table
But it was still meat
She forgot the sugar again

Daddy came home, she had tears in her eyes
He said "Gimme grilled cheese
And paperbag French fries"
See, he forgot the sugar again

We had a wander seven years out West
It wasn't exactly the wilderness
But I felt like an Israelite

Mamma is a gypsy, she'll never find her town
Daddy went to sea but the boat went down
And the flames shot into the night

Sing for joy
Sing for laughs
Sing for joy
Sing for joy
If nothing else
Sing for joy

I know a girl who lives on the hill
I don't know if her sister will
or I was thinking about her best friend

Oh listen to me
I'm a desperate boy
I think I better have a sing for joy
And I guess this has just got to end

I'll get away in my get away car
Every now and then I'll send my regards
from a payphone down in the flats

I'm sorry for the love
I'm sorry for the pain
I'll say I'm sorry baby again and again
I'm sorry we're joining the stats

Sing for joy
Sing for laughs
Sing for joy
Sing for joy
If nothing else
Sing for joy


Sometimes, no matter how shitty things get, you have to just do a little dance. - Frank

My take on:

I Burn Today

I knew a girl with sad blue eyes
But at the feast I lost my psychic prize
I did forget what the tarot maid did say
I burn today, I burn today

Our house was filled with many birds
She said to me, I can understand their words
The land will shake, so run away
I burn today, I burn today
Yes today I will burn for the times I did not learn

She said, Have fun, this time has come
Pull my heartstrings and have your self a strum
No never more this song will we play
I burn today, I burn today

And as I drank in old Prais
She'd lay her cards just to see what she would see
Down by the water you'll find your happy days
I burn today, I burn today
Yes today I will burn for the times I did not learn

I ran so fast into the North
No snow on me and so he said thence forth
I let snow fall on frozen yesterday
I burn today, I burn today

If my head my head is hanging down
I feel her arms and her legs are all around
And we make love beside the water way

How many lives I really do not know
Though with the rain I know it will return
Today I burn, Today I burn

Lone Child

I am like a wolf
I'm not full of your hate
I'm full of my grace
See in my face
I am a key [(or) I am akin]

See the empty stage
See there's nothing there
Save your ounce of despair
You once wasted it
Your devil may care
Your poisonings (I think)

Lone child, born wild
No childish things
Lone child, born wild
No troubled strings

I've been moving on, creeping off the stage
I'll be tearing you out, tearing you down
I'm growling now in the wings

Lone child, born wild
No childish things
Lone child, born wild
No troubled strings

Damn this, it's more fun than stats:

Another Velvet Nightmare

Today I felt my heart slide into my belly
So I puked it up with liquor and I slept right where I lay
And I dreamed the backs of cards for the faces were not telling
No, I never have felt sicker
And I do not want to wake

Here comes another nightmare of you again
Another velvet nightmare come true again
Oh, I should have seen it coming
Oh, please don't let it end
My nightmare of you again

No I never would have come here
But my eyes they would not focus
So I took my last three dollars
And I spent them on a drink
I had visions of you dear, but they floated without notice
All these drunkards do is holler
Till this drunkard cannot think

A Curtain falls
A scene revolves*
It seems your blue eyes glisten

Here comes another nightmare of you again
Another velvet nightmare come true again
Oh, I should have seen it coming
Oh, please don't let it end
My nightmare of you again

*thats not right, I'm not sure the 'scene' is right, it could be assumed or unseen revolt as well, I am blasting it through the headphones. Anyone else?

there's a definate 'd' noise after the a scene/unseen the sc.. noise. And the rev.. word is very short, possibly one or two sylables unless it's cut off.

This is going to bug the hell out of me.

I'm ignoring the dark end of the street for now

Go Find Your Saint

Had no life, I was feeling like some kind of unfinished project
I had a friend, John, he said, let me turn you on to the saint of inanimate objects
Go find, go find your saint
Go find, go find your saint

Pill by pill a miracle occurred

How I prayed until I said the words I knew would upset her,
She said, get off your knees and don't tell me I ain't gonna be what I ain't, yeah
Go find, go find your saint,
Go find, go find your saint,

Packed my bags
I never did look back
But I'm glad that I met her

Go find, go find your saint
Go find, go find your saint
Go find, go find your saint
Go find, go find your saint

You've been gone but I sang my songs to the heart of a felled tree
Under the charms of the saints folded arms well I hope that she can help me


I love this song, I just realised.

Atom In My Heart

Is there a place that you can't go back to?
Is there a town you can't even enter
Maybe there are whole states you don't even wanna pass through.
When you're getting down now you're a weekly renter

Is your mind gone?
Are you dog-tired?
Do you feel like you can't get no worse?
I'm a big guy, can we try this?
I will be the whole universe
You be the center
You burn inside me like a star
An atom in my heart
An atom in my heart

Is your mind gone?
Are you dog-tired?
Do you feel like you can't get no worse?
I'm a big guy, can we try this?
I will be the whole universe
You be the center
You burn inside me like a star
An atom in my heart
An atom in my heart

I know a place and it was made for you
The earth is warm
And the sky is tender

Daisy THAT makes more sense, I was sure it was paperba... but for some reason the paper bag never occured to me.

Also, what do we think of this:

I've been* moving on, creeping off the stage
I'll be tearing you out, tearing you down
I'm growling now in the wings

I've been or I'll be?



and you're questioning the sciences
and questioning religion
you're looking like an idiot
and you no longer care.

Sexy? God, no, I think it's sad. That song makes me sob. Ditto "I burn today" because today I do burn for all the times I did not learn.

Yesterday I cried each of the three times I listened to "I burn today" to get the lyrics down. Anyway...back on topic....

You gals rule!!! Thanks for compiling this.

I always seem to have problems with understanding lyrics of new songs. And after reading them wonder how I could not get those at times quite simple words.

Getting the meaning is a completly different thing, though... Especially with FB.

DaisyG,

"Give me grilled cheese and paperback French fries"

is the best explanation I've gotten so far!



Also, "king" sounds right on "Lone Child"...


Thanks.

I have damaged hearing from too many Ramones shows so I do appreciate your help and good hearing.

This is why we have the song db threads, only not for a while because I have been busy with other things but soon! soooooon!

Which reminds me, Dave/Dean, is HC getting added? It might be nice to attack those songs especially as a frankish breakdown has already been posted.

The Shrimp song lyrics aren't right, it's the Elvis version. FB's version goes like this:

SONG OF THE SHRIMP

I saw three shrimps in the water
And two were old and grey
So I swam a little closer
And I heard the third one say

Goodbye mammy shrimp
And Papa shake my hand
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me to Louisiane

He showed his mama and his papa papa papa papa papa papa papa
The shrimp newspaper he read
And there the advertisement
To all the young shrimps said

Free ride New Orleans
To stay in Grand Hotel
Meet Creole gals
That help you out of your shell

(solo)

Goodbye mammy shrimp
And Papa shake my hand
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me to Louisiane

His poor mama and his poor papa papa papa papa papa papa papa
They haven't heard from him yet
Last time they've seen his smiling face
Is when he jumped into the net

Goodbye mammy shrimp
And Papa shake my hand
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me to Louisiane
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me to Louisiane
Here comes the shrimp boat for
To take me ah take me

I know the god of rock n roll / Yeah I sold him my soul!

Thank you, Denis! My bad. I included your correct lyrics in the first post here.

I think Jamie's got it with the boat going down.

----------
Lone Child
----------
I'm growling now in the wings
I'm growling now in the *winds*?

------------------------
Another velvet nightmare
------------------------
A curtain falls
A scene ??? revolves xxxx ???

not sure here, but could he be saying "Gravol." I typed what I heard into google and found out it's an anti-nauseant product. coincidence? maybe.

----------------------
Dark End Of The Street
----------------------

When the daylight all goes around
*And when the daylight hour rolls round*

---------------
Strange Goodbye
---------------
Funny how we're laughing through all of these tears.

It's a pain, to be sure, we sure gave it a try
It's so strange to be saying goodbye *a shame*

I hear "a shame" only for this one line. Going out on a limb because I'd expect to hear "so strange," but I hear "a shame"

---------------------
My Life Is In Storage

Paid him in his fee, now I wait and see
*I paid a man his fee, and* now I wait and see

I wasn't sure but I went with wings because of the "creeping off the stage"... you see..

*thats not right, I'm not sure the 'scene' is right, it could be assumed or unseen revolt as well, I am blasting it through the headphones. Anyone else?

there's a definate 'd' noise after the a scene/unseen the sc.. noise. And the rev.. word is very short, possibly one or two sylables unless it's cut off.

This is going to bug the hell out of me.

I still don't know. I wish I knew. Maybe it's not english. If it's not english, I bet it's french.
