Lyrically Speaking for October 17


Hey it’s Friday everyone and I’m here to bring you another song that I think has great lyrics and also sounds great. This week, I bring you an interesting song that I didn’t know about a few months ago. As I’ve mentioned previously, I listen to Pandora a lot when I write and even when I’m just not into hearing my songs in iTunes. Pandora is fantastic and the fact that it’s free makes it one of the best web services out there.

This week I want to focus on the group O.A.R. which stands for Of A Revolution. This band has ‘hippie’ roots in their music where you will see people travel to see them and for me, personally it reminds me of Phish, The Grateful Dead, or even Dave Mathews Band. Pandora plays this song all the time since I’ve given it a thumbs up and I finally plunked down the $0.99 to buy it on iTunes. I figure if I like the song enough, I should give the band some money. Coming into work the other day, I got to really hear the lyrics and realized the track has some fun to it and is really enjoyable. I think you will all agree it’s a good song, but also the melody is nice too.

From O.A.R., this is Hey Girl:

I took this girl out last night and we left around 12,
We walked along lonely streets and got to know ourselves,
I like to read – she likes to write,
she likes to sleep – and I like to stay up all night,
My friends say I’m crazy and I agree,
but that’s okay that’s the way I like to be

Hey girl come with me and let yourself go
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go

I say now hey girl, come with me and let yourself go,
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go
I said hey girl, come with me, and let yourself go, go, go, let yourself go

we went out late that night and we danced through the night
I was holding on to her and she be gripping it tight she was
But she didn’t care, and I didnt mind
I was unaware that she liked to act so kind,
My friends say I’am crazy and I agree,
but thats okay cause thats the way I like to be

hey girl, come with me and let yourself go, come on, come on
hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go,
just let yourself go

Hush little baby dont say a word
i would like to give you evrything that you deserve
ill give you my heart ill give you all my soul
you can have all my money if you like you can control
in my mind i miss you every night that your not here
oh i just want to sit around your life and breath your air
and if i can not have you i just dont want to live
oh i got so much i would like to give

hey girl, come with me and let yourself go, come on, come on
hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go,
just let yourself go

Hey girl,but baby it all here just let yourself go
Hey girl,but baby but darlin let your self go
Hey girl,but baby but darlin i need to know
Hey girl,but my sweety but my lovely id love to let you go
Hey girl,but im comeing back for you and im looking to you girl
