Sometimes a Girl Just Feels Like:

At the top of her lungs.
There's plenty of songs to bust out.
And there's nothing like a lady with a message to convey.
So sidle up to that microphone...
Right now, he's prob'ly slow dancin' with a bleach blond tramp
and she's prob'ly gettin' frisky.
Right now, he's prob'ly buyin' her some fruity little drink
'cause she can't shoot whiskey.
Right now, he's prob'ly up behind her with a pool stick showin' her
how to shoot a combo,
And he don't know...
-Carrie Underwood
Black Velvet in that little boy's smile
Black Velvet in that slow, southern style.
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees,
Black Velvet, if you please...
-Alannah Myles
So Saint Peter, won't you open up those big white gates,
'Cause I've heard about forgiveness and I'm hopin' that it ain't too late.
No, I ain't no holy roller, but you go tell your King
That all the folks up in heaven might like to hear me sing.
-Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
Just when I think I'm on my way to heaven,
I see I'm only on the way to hell.
The devil's got my baby,
Somebody help me please,
The devil's got my baby,
But I know he's only after me,
I know he really wants me.
-Diane Birch
Near to you, I am healing but it's taking so long,
'Cause though he's gone and you are wonderful,
It's hard to move on.
Yet, I'm better near to you...
-A Fine Frenzy
Bye bye baby, remember you're my baby when they give you the eye.
Although I know that you care, won't you write and declare,
That though on the loose, you are still on the square.
I'll be gloomy, but send that rainbow to me,
Then my shadows will fly.
Though you'll be gone for awhile, I know that I'll be smilin'
With my baby, by and by.
-Marilyn Monroe
-I bet you guys forgot what tomorrow is...
-What a jerk, who could forget something like that! A Saint's Day! A free day! No School!
-The publics own the sidewalk, but us Catholics get the Saints Days off!
-Hey you guys, let's all meet on the corner tomorrow and walk over to the school
-The public school - And we'll look up at those windows and yell:
-Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up
It's that ole devil called love again,
Gets behind me and keeps giving me that shove again,
Puttin' rain in my eyes,
Tears in my dreams,
And rocks in my heart.
-Billie Holiday
So if you care to find me, look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately: Everyone deserves the chance to fly!
And if I'm flying solo, at least I'm flying free.
To those who'd ground me, take a message back from me:
Tell them how I'm Defying Gravity...
-Idina Menzel as Elphaba from Wicked
Don't let me down, don't let me down,
Don't let me down, don't let me down,
Oh I'm in love for the first time,
Don't you know it's gonna last,
It's the love that lasts forever,
It's the love that has not past.
-Dana Fuchs as Sadie in Across the Universe
If you want it, Come and get it.
If you want it, Come and get it, But understand,
You take me as I am.
-Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland
The sun comes up, I think about you.
The coffee cup, I think about you.
I want you so, It's like I'm losing my mind.
-Stephen Sondheim
I've run the gamut, A to Z,
Three cheers and dammit, C'est la vie,
I got through all of last year, And I'm here.
Lord knows, at least I was there, And I'm here,
Look who's here.
I'm still here.
-Stephen Sondheim
My one love affair didn't get anywhere from the start,
To send me a Joe who had winter and snow in his heart wasn't smart.
Love, you didn't do right by me.
As they say in the song: You done me wrong.
-Rosemary Clooney
Because the world is round, It turns me on,
Because the world is round...
Because the wind is high, It blows my mind,
Because the wind is high...
Love is old, love is new, Love is all, love is you.
Because the sky is blue, It makes me cry,
Because the sky is blue...
-Across the Universe cast
