    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!

    Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

    And the seasons they go round and round
    And the painted ponies go up and down
    We’re captive on the carousel of time
    We can’t return, we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go round and round and round
    In the circle game

    Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

    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

    Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

    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.

    Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

    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

    Now that's one tune that I actually remember the words to.

    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

    Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

    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
    Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know?
    Waste-bin full of paper
    Clever rhymes, see you later

    These words are my own
    From my heart flow
    I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
    There's no other way
    To better say
    I love you, I love you...

    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
    Nothing I write is ever good enough

    These words are my own
    From my heart flow
    I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
    There's no other way
    To better say
    I love you, I love you...

    I'm getting off my stage
    The curtains pull away
    No hyperbole to hide behind
    My naked soul exposes
    Whoah.. oh.. oh.. oh.. Whoah.. oh..

    Trying to find the magic
    Trying to write a classic
    Waste-bin full of paper
    Clever rhymes, see you later

    These words are my own
    From my heart flow
    I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

    That's all I got to say,
    Can't think of a better way,
    And that's all I've got to say,
    I love you, is that okay?

    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.

    Re: The Silly Symphonies Opera House

    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?
