I’m Finding It Harder To Be A Gentleman

I’m Finding It Harder To Be A Gentleman
By: The White Stripes
Album: White Blood Cells

Well I’m finding it harder to be a gentleman every day
All the manner that I’ve been taught have slowly died away
But if I held the door open for you
It wouldn’t make your day

You think that I care about me and only me
When every single girl needs help climbing up a tree
Well I know it don’t take much to satisfy me

Maybe it’s whatever’s in my head that’s distracting me
But if i could find emotion
to stimulate devotion
Well then you’d see

Well I’m finding it hard to say that I need you twenty times a day
I feel comfortable so baby why don’t you feel the same?
Have a doctor come and visit us
and tell us which one is sane

I’d never said I wouldn’t throw my jacket in the mud for you
But my father gave it to me so maybe I should carry you
Then you said You almost dropped me
So then I did
And I got mud on my shoes

One More Cup of Coffee

One More Cup Of Coffee
By: Bob Dylan
Album: Desire

Your breath is sweet and weak
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie
But I don’t sense affection
No gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go
To the valley below

Your daddy he’s an outlaw
And a wanderer by trade
He’ll teach you how to pick and choose
And how to throw the blade
He oversees his kingdom So no stranger does intrude
His voice it trembles as he calls out For another plate of food

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go To the valley below

Your sister sees the future
Like your mama and yourself
You’ve never learned to read or write
There’s no books upon your shelf
And your pleasure knows no limits
Your voice is like a meadowlark
But your heart is like an ocean
Mysterious and dark.

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go
To the valley below

Make sure you check out Bob Dylan’s and The White Stripes’ version of this great song.

Thanks

I Want to be the Boy to Warm Your Mothers Heart

I Want to be the Boy to Warm Your Mothers Heart
         By:The White Stripes

I want to be the boy, to warm your mother’s heart
I’m so scared to take you away
I tried to win her over right from the start
But something always got in the way
We’ve been sitting in your backyard for hours
But she won’t even come out and say hi
While my mother baked a little cake for you
And even dreaded when you said goodbye

What kind of cartwheels do I have to pull?
What kind of joke should I lay on her now?
I’m inclined to go finish high school
Just to make her notice that I’m around

Well nothing I came up with seems to work
It feels like everything I say is lie
And never have I felt like such a jerk
I’m afraid to even open my eyes
Because I really don’t want her to judge me
I want her to really know who I am
And then, and only then will she love me
Well at least that was the plan

If ever a boy needed a holiday
If ever a girl needed someone to hold
I just hope I don’t act the same way
By the time I get that old

What kind of cartwheels do I have to pull?
What kind of joke should I lay on her now?
I’m inclined to go finish high school
Just to make her notice that I’m around

I never said I was the heir to a fortune
I never claimed to have any looks
But these kind of things must be important
Because somebody ripped out my page in your telephone book
I want to warm her heart
