    Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July...almost

    In lieu of Friday Random Ten... Posted by Picasa

    A sampling of 4th of July lyrics from Mariah to Aimee to Bruce to Ani to the great Dave Alvin


    It was twilight
    On the Fourth of July
    Sparkling colors were
    Strewn across the sky
    And we sat close enough
    That we just barely touched
    While roman candles
    Went soaring above us and baby

    Fourth of July – Mariah Carey


    Shower in the dark day
    Clean sparks driving down
    Cool in the waterway
    Where the baptized drown
    Naked in the cold sun
    Breathing life like fire
    Thought I was the only one
    But that was just a lie

    Cause I heard it in the wind
    And I saw it in the sky
    And I thought it was the end
    And I thought it was the 4th of July

    Fourth of July – Soundgarden


    Well she hated the 4th of july
    Bombs bursting in air, and she’d never know why
    She’d keep me up all night, too terrified to cry
    Oh yes, she hated 4th of July

    Don’t you be scared, don’t you start to shake
    Go back to sleep because I am wide awake
    I’m right here, I’m not going anywhere tonight
    Feel my hand, I’m gonna hold you till the early light

    4th of July – Blues Traveler


    Today’s the fourth of July
    Another June has gone by
    And when they light up our town I just think
    What a waste of gunpowder and sky
    I’m certain that I am alone
    In harbouring thoughts of our home
    It’s one of my faults that I can’t quell my past
    I ought to have gotten it gone

    Oh, baby, I wonder -
    If when you are older -
    You’ll wake up
    And say, ’my god, I should have told her -
    What would it take?
    But now here I am and the world’s gotten colder
    And she’s got the river down which I sold her.’

    Fourth of July – Aimee Mann


    She's waiting for me when I get home from work
    But things just ain't the same
    She turns out the light and cries in the dark
    Won't answer when I call her name

    On the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone
    The Mexican kids are shooting fireworks below
    Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July
    Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July

    She gives me her cheek when I want her lips
    And I don't have the strength to go
    On the lost side of town in a dark apartment
    We gave up trying so long ago

    Whatever happened, I apologize
    So dry your tears and baby, walk outside
    It's the Fourth of July

    Fourth of July – Dave Alvin


    Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
    Forcin' a light into all those stoned-out faces left stranded on this Fourth of July
    Down in town the circuit's full with switchblade lovers so fast so shiny so sharp
    As the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark
    And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers along the shore
    Chasin' all them silly New York girls

    Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us
    The pier lights our carnival life forever
    Love me tonight for I may never see you again
    Hey Sandy girl

    4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy) – Bruce Springsteen


    Shall I tell it again how we started as friends
    Who would run into one another now and again
    At the Yippee Cai O or the Mesa Dupree
    Or a dozen different everyday places to be
    I was loping along living alone
    We were ever so brave on the telephone
    Would you care to come down for fireworks time
    We could each just reach
    We step out of line
    And the smell of the smoke and the lay of the land
    and the feeling of finding one's heart in one's hand
    and the tiny tin voice of the radio band singing
    love must stand
    Love forever and ever must stand
    Unbelievable you, impossible me
    The fool who fell out of the family tree
    The fellow that found the philosopher's stone
    Deep underground like a dinosaur bone
    Who fell into you at a quarter to two
    With a tear in your eye for the Fourth of July

    On the Fourth of July - James Taylor


    you gotta have the right tools
    for every job
    so I invite myself in
    through a hole in the fence
    I am tripping through the junkyard
    scanning over the piles
    the thin cats raise their skin in defense
    I know he's watching me
    I can see him through the cracks
    his eyes are small and shy on my back
    he says his name is Jason
    he lives in the last trailer on the right
    and he'll be seven
    on the fourth of July

    only the people who live here
    know the name of this place
    my path through Iowa would be
    hard to trace
    all the adults in this town
    try not to frown
    when I walk by
    but Jason smiled at me
    he met my eye

    he don't ask me
    where I'm from
    or why I came
    here alone
    we all go looking for paradise
    then we go back home
    we cut out the small talk
    go right to the way things are
    he showed me his squirrel skull
    I told him I locked myself out of my car

    so there goes the only friend
    I have in Iowa
    his hand flapping behind him
    waving good-bye
    his name is Jason
    he lives in the last trailer on the right
    and he'll be seven
    on the fourth of July

    Fourth of July – Ani DiFranco


    I'm sure I missed a few. Drop me a line and I'll add them, but none of them can hold a roman candle to Alvin's as done by either him or John Doe with X.
