And on a completly random note, it's all sithjawa's fault! :) She was talking about Into the Wood lyrics, which got me to wondering how much of the lyrics for my favorite song i could remember:
He's a very smart prince, he's a prince who prepares
Knowing this time i'd run from him, he spread pitch on the stairs
I was caught unawares, and i thought, well he cares
This is more than just malice
Better stop and take stock while you're standing here stuck on the steps of the palace
You think what do you want? You think make a decision
Why not stay and be caught? You think well it's a thought, what would be his response?
But then what if he knew who you were when you know that you're not what he thinks that he wants?
And then what if you were? What a prince would envision?
But then how can you know who you are till you know what you want which you don't so then which do you pick?
Where you're safe out of sight by yourself but where everything wrong?
Or where everything's right but you know that you'll never belong?
And whichever you pick do it quick cause you're starting to stick to the steps of the palace.
It's your first big decision, the choice isn't easy to make.
To arrive at a ball is exciting and all once you're there though it's scary.
And it's fun to decieve when you know you can leave but you have to be wary.
There's a lot that's at stake but you've stalled long enough cause you're still standing stuck in the stuff on the steps
Better run along home, and avoid the collision
Even though they don't care you'll be better off there where there's nothing to choose so there's nothing to lose
So you pry up your shoes
And then from out of the blue, and without any guide
You know what your decision is, which is not to decide
You'll just leave him a clue, for example, a shoe
And then see what he'll do
And then it's he and not you
Who is stuck in a stew, with a shoe, in the goo
And you've learned something too, something you never knew
On the steps of the palace
Wow, i think i got a lot more of that than i thought i was going to. I missed a few bits the first time through, but when i read back over it the gaps kinda jumped out at me (well, most of them anyways =)
Don't think i could do nearly as well on any other songs from Into the Woods though, i remember lots of bits and fragments from everything but nothing really coherent. My second most favorite song is probably "Agony" and i'd be lucky if i could get even half of that.
I should actually look up the lyrics now to figure out exactly how well i did, but i need to run off to work =P
