Verses from Luke Rivers’ songs

 

TALKING TO GHOSTS by Luke Rivers

I heard she talks to ghosts

I heard she sends them off to Heaven

I’ve got a few inside my head

I wish to hell she’d shoot mine dead.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ONE THING by Luke Rivers

Sex is one thing

Love is everything

But most people do anything

To get that one thing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TROUBLE by Luke Rivers

I see trouble ahead and its name is woman

Can’t live with ‘em and can’t live without ‘em.

They chase me up and they chase me down

They chased me right out of town

But I always come back and you know why

They got something so good it makes grown men cry.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

LIFE IS FULL by Luke Rivers

I once wrote a song so funny

It made me a mountain of money.

But this song I know won’t be a hit

Because it says life is full of shit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

JUST THE SEX, MA’AM by Luke Rivers

I want to do it to her

I want to make it happen

I want to do it again and again

I want the sex to never end.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A FRIEND LIKE YOU by Luke Rivers

You said you had my back

You said you’d be my main support

Harry Potter had a friend like you

His name was Voldemort.


Popeye had his Brutus

Caesar had one too

Cleopatra had her asp

Buddy, I’ve got you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THE GIMME SONG by Luke Rivers

I’ll pose for the cameras

Show off my décor

And in return

You can gimme some more.


Take from the sick

Take from the poor

Do whatever it takes

Just gimme some more.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CHOCOLATE WITHOUT CALORIES by Luke Rivers

I asked a woman what girls want

She said chocolate without calories

Shoes that look good and don’t hurt their feet

And men who love them no matter how much they weigh.


I get it, I said in reply

Women want men who smile when they lie.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WHEN WORDS GO WRONG by Luke Rivers

You ignore all my requests

You never do what I say

So why did you listen

When I told you to go away?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CALL by Luke Rivers

Whatever happens, I’ll come if you call

Whether it’s a bruise caused by a fall

Or you weren’t invited to a ball

For any reason big or small

Just pick up the phone and call.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EVIL WOMAN BLUES by Luke Rivers

Skin like satin covers a blackened soul

Her lips are warm, her heart is cold.

She’s an evil woman with an angel’s smile

Don’t be fooled, she’s the devil’s child.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PROUD by Luke Rivers

The first time I saw her I loved her

The first time she saw me she hated me

My heart swelled like a parade balloon

She puked up her breakfast in the bathroom.


She tells me all she wants is her mother’s love

And I keep trying to be a dad she’s proud of.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WITHOUT A SCRIPT by Luke Rivers

We were about to go off like a rocket

But the package wasn’t in my pocket

Just as she said “We can’t do this”

I bent and gave her a kiss

Long and hard and not on her face

But in a deliciously different place.


In appreciation she returned the favor

It’s a memory I will always savor

Sometimes life takes a funny twist

The best lines come without a script.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL by Luke Rivers

When I was young I wanted fortune and fame

My dreams came true and I ain’t gonna complain.

But the best things in life really are free

Like Monday Night Football on TV.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DAMN FOOLS by Luke Rivers

You treat her like she’s dumber than dumb

When she’s worth the moon and the sun.

You’re the one who should be ashamed

You’re the one who’s losing the game.


Some people can’t recognize precious jewels

Because they’re nothing but damn fools.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MOMENT BY MOMENT by Luke Rivers

I wish I could rip the bad from your dreams

I wish I could cut the evil from your life

Though you tell me it doesn’t fester

I look at your face and I know better.


My regrets won’t change your past

It’s been and gone too damn fast

But we can change the future through the present

Because we create our lives moment by moment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DO IT! by Luke Rivers

You keep saying you want to do it

So do it

Life gets in your way you say

So screw it

If only you could make more time

So make it.


Ain’t it easier sitting in front of that TV

Night after night, watching other people live?

When are you gonna get it through your head

The only good excuse is that you’re dead?


You can do anything you ever wished

But you gotta get off your butt and do it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

LOVE AND BEER by Luke Rivers

I hurt when she’s far

I hurt when she’s near

The only time I don’t hurt

Is when I’m drinking my beer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BUMP by Luke Rivers

Witches and fairies go bump in the night

Ghosts and goblins will give you a fright

They don’t scare the body straining against mine

In a Halloween dance that feels mighty fine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
