The Lyrics

A lot of folks are working a lot of hours, if they have a job, just to scrape by. This leaves little time for important stuff, like music. And, let's face it, a lot of songs do go on a bit too long. So, in the interest of saving everyone some time, here is my Listener's Digest condensed album of 12 hits by some big name artists.
Hey, Jude, what do you say?
Take a long song, and make it shorter

But a spark still burned, so I used my knife
And late that night, I took the life
Of Ringo (Ringo)

So, you do believe we're on the Eve of Destruction

What do you do with a drunken sailor?
Let him sleep 'til morning

There is a way to hide your lying eyes

You say good-bye, and I say good-bye

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
And the manager tells me, "You're fired!"

Somewhere, if you look, in an old ledger book
The safe voyage of the Edmund Fitzgerald

Once upon a time you looked so fine
Still lookin' fine, aren't you?

Oh, where have you been, my blue eyed son?
Nowhere? See you later.

Long, long time ago
I cannot remember

Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall
Leave them there

I'm sure most of you can identify the originals. Now get out there and do something worthwhile with the time I've saved you.
