    Default Re Write A Song

    As you all know I hate Bono for reasons I've stated,not payin tax,seeking constant publicity,and generaly being an overbearing midget gobs****,etc
    so I need some clever people help me re write
    " I still havent found what i'm looking for"


    I have climbed forbes rich list
    people say i'm just a b***h
    Only to screw you
    Only to screw you


    I have run
    I have crawled
    I'm five foot five
    and nearly bald
    Only to be with you


    ADVERTISING





    But i still haven't found what i'm looking for
    But i still haven't found what i'm looking for


    I have kissed bush's ass
    never paid any irish tax
    spent 150 million on facebook
    I am another irish crook

    I have spoke with the tongue of angels
    I have held the hand of a devil
    It was warm in the night
    I was cold as a stone


    But i still haven't found what i'm looking for
    But i still haven't found what i'm looking for


    I believe in courting media
    Then all the fools will belive ya
    Bleed the nation dry
    Well yes i'm still running


    You bought the bonds and we
    bought the banks
    Carried the cross
    Of my shame
    Of my shame

    You've had a fairly decent stab at that one Savo. I am not so familiar with the out-put of U2, but if you give me the name of one of their songs you would like dickered with, "...Sure I'm yer man."

    Don't You Feckin Dare...

    You’re everywhere ice cold want
    Mine is the house you don’t haunt
    You’re that thing that keeps me in
    You’re intense, but I have thick skin

    I will bring you roses
    I’ll have cake myself instead
    Time only is time
    For what is spent
    Not for how life is led

    Don’t come knocking, don’t come knocking
    Don’t come knocking at my door
    Don’t come knocking, knock, feckin, knocking
    Don’t come knocking you bore

    You’re a scream I could wake up with
    You’re a fright I shall put up with
    You’re the door, for more, always open
    You’re the fecker that’s always mopin’

    Off a tree-lined avenue, in a coal-hole made of stone
    I’ll sit there screaming, I would rather live alone

    Don’t come knocking, don’t come knocking
    Don’t come knocking at my door
    Don’t come knocking, knock, feckin, knocking
    Don’t come knocking, you chore

    All the stars in my Apple-I
    They can’t light our way, oh no
    All the maps, and all the charts
    All the dreams…
    Dreams …won’t… leave… you…
    Home…
    Home…

    Don’t come knocking, don’t come knocking
    Don’t come knocking at my feckin door
    Don’t come knocking, don’t come knocking
    Don’t come knocking at my do'
    Don’t come knocking, knock, knock, knocking
    Don’t dare come knocking no more bro

    I suppose things might have ben better had I bothered to listen to it first...when I have a moment later I may give that a go.

    Savo it would assist you to have a mate called 'Geldof' so you could perhaps play it at a jumped-up gig as an excuse to help starving African kids but in reality to promote yourself and your second rate band when in actual fact you are only interested in getting to the top.

    A read of this will cheer you Savo, but first a sample or two...

    Tax his tractor, tax his mule; tell him, taxing is the rule.
    Tax his oil, tax his gas, tax his notes, tax his cash
    Tax him good and let him know, that after taxes, he has no dough.
    If he hollers, tax him more; tax him till he's good and sore.
    Tax his coffin, tax his grave, tax his sod in which he's laid.
    Put these words upon his tomb, "Taxes drove him to his doom."
    Once he's gone, we won't relax. We'll still collect inheritance tax.

    You can't kiss an Irish girl unexpectedly. You can only kiss her sooner than she thought you would.
    Irish Saying

    If you ever go across the sea to Ireland,
    Then maybe at the closing of each day;
    You will witness the poor's lives getting harder,
    Because of the little tax the rich are asked to pay,
    So's we can play host to some wasters and their team,
    And leave them free to roam the world making hay;
    And do sit beside a turf fire in the cabin,
    Watch again the barefoot gossoons at their play,
    For the breezes blowing o'er the seas from Ireland,
    Are perfum'd by the wealthy and their blow;
    And the women in the uplands diggin' praties,
    Speak a language that these strangers do not know,
    For the strangers came and lie and leach their way,
    They scorn'd us just for being what we are;
    But they might as well go chasing after moonbeams,
    Or light a penny candle from a star.
    And if there is going to be a life hereafter,
    And somehow I am sure there's going to be;
    I will ask my God to let me make my heaven,
    In that dear land across the Irish sea.

    One last one. I have been having internet problems, but while I was waiting I did this...

    Wild Rocker Repent

    I've been a wild rocker for many the year
    And I make all my money as you're drinkin' beer.
    As now I'm brimming with gold in great store
    I shall pay the tax-man no never no more
    And it's no nay never, no never no more
    Will I pay the tax-man, no never, no more


    I went to a pals house I used to frequent
    I was asked by the folks there if money I lent
    They asked me for credit, I answered they 'nay
    Sure a rich man wont stay rich actin' that way


    Chorus:


    I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
    And me old pal's eyes opened wide with delight
    He said “Here have whiskey and wines of the best,
    If'in the words that you spoke they were only a jest?”

    Chorus:

    I went home to my parents, confessed what I'd done
    And I ask them to laugh with their prodigal son.
    But as they depressed me as oft times before,
    Sure, maybe I will play the wild rocker to get even more.

    Chorus:
    While I know that my Country is down at this time
    Why is it that the hoarding of cash is a crime?
    Just you keep a strugglin' while I try to relax
    Yours is the poor-mouth, but I still wont pay tax
    Chorus:

    In Dublin's fair city,
    where the girls are still pretty
    we again see the sight of sweet Molly Malone
    though altered is her ditty
    she goes from city to city
    "In the land of free-men shall we each stand alone?"

    Now her ghost wheels her barrow
    through streets that are narrow
    for on high-ways and broad-ways she's forbidden to go
    she's no longer fish monger
    and her cries are of hunger
    she heartens the poor though she is far from the foe

    We are strong, we are clever
    and never say never
    Why is the harvest of youth to be left to the crow?
    We once came together
    to be free of a tether
    Then gave free rein to weeds and the crop cannot grow

    Our acre and cottage
    is now mess o' pottage
    Where can we turn to to regain our pride?
    As of old we're reliant
    under yoke, we're defiant
    Only all-together can we turn the tide.

    [I have it out of my system now, I think ]

    Encore ! Encore! Oudeis
    Now use this side of the water, please......jeez there's enough material here without emigrating......no offence meant Savo.

    ---------- Post added at 11:03 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:56 AM ----------

    Hey Savo,
    you're "friend" has been speaking out in defence of another poor billionaire......and there's you saying he's not a caring person:



    Sept. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Bono, U2 rock band's lead singer, defended Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs after a New York Times columnist wrote the former chief executive wasn't a prominent philanthropist.

    Jobs said there was "nothing better than the chance to save lives," when Bono approached him about a campaign to fight AIDS in Africa, according to a letter the singer wrote to the New York Times yesterday. Through the sale of red-colored products, Apple was (Product) RED's largest contributor to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, giving tens of millions of dollars, Bono wrote.

    "I'm proud to know him," Bono wrote about Jobs. "He's a poetic fellow, an artist and a businessman. Just because he's been extremely busy, that doesn't mean that he and his wife, Laurene, haven't been thinking about these things."

    The participation was "invaluable" and helped transform the lives of more than 2 million Africans, Bono wrote. Bono sent the letter after Andrew Ross Sorkin wrote in a column that Jobs wasn't a "prominent philanthropist" even after accumulating $8.3 billion through his holdings in Apple and Walt Disney Co.

    There was no public record of Jobs giving money to charity and he wasn't a member of the Giving Pledge, founded by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to persuade America's rich to give away at least half their wealth, Sorkin wrote.

    The lack of public giving by Jobs is "curious," Sorkin wrote. In 1986, Jobs started the Steven P. Jobs Foundation and closed it a little over a year later, Sorkin wrote.

    Apple gives a portion of the purchase price from consumers choosing (Product) RED special edition iPod models and iTunes gift cards toward the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa, according to the company's Website.

    Jobs resigned last week as the chief executive officer of Apple, a company he co-founded. Jobs, who will become chairman, had been on medical leave since Jan. 17, following a 2003 cancer diagnosis and a liver transplant in 2009.

    Bono is co-founder of the (Product) RED group.

    p.s
    U2 moved their tax liability from Ireland to the Netherlands. The move came after Ireland scrapped tax breaks that allowed musicians and artists to avoid paying taxes on royalties.

    Philanthropy's a canopy
    an umbrella for the few
    both shield and panoply*
    and keeps truth from view

    Giving is a common trait
    for each, it's nothing new
    wealth's stem is straight
    it's roots are me and you

    Riches' flower enjoys shade
    so, the longer it may bloom
    it relies on the choices made
    by we, who dwell in gloom

    Herein's a lesson for us all
    [When will we ever learn?]
    "Enjoy the park, shun the Mall
    and hang on to what we earn!"


    *pan·o·ply:
    -a complete suit of armour.
    -a protective covering.

    Thanks for that, I am amazed how tough life is for these artists, thank god I don't have millions in the bank for singing and basically ****ing about ! I think when you get to their level of success you lose touch with reality.
