Please can someone help me!


Hello and welcome to the forum StageDoorBabe :) Good to have you aboard.

Re those lyrics, as yet no one seems to of done them, so why not have a go at writing them up maybe? Its a clearly sung/spoken song, so it should not be that difficult :)

FWIW, I'm trying to save some 'new' stuff for the new look site, so excuse me for not posting such things here right now :) Otherwise I'd have a go at them. But as I said, its a pretty clear cut song, so maybe you have a go :)

heya, noticed you didn't have business time, issues, frodo dont wear the ring, and humans are dead, so I thought I'd decide to write out the lyrics for them.

And it looks like you don't have the 2nd type of lyrics of hiphop/rhymenocerous, so if you want those, (the one that I think you said you have, it doesn't have the spoken bits... *shrugs*)

Issues--

B- Thank you, uhm, if theres one thing uhm, that we as a band, want to deal with, is the issues, uhm, like,
J- Thats just one of the things
B-Like the future of the planet uhm
J- Yeap
B- The future of my children, and my childrens children,
J- Well you know,
B- and my childrens childrens children, you know.
J- Actually brett, when I think about your children, and your childrens children, I actually think your children are too young to be having children, and as far as your childrens childrens children I think, you know, where does it stop? When, when the children are having children, you know, it's just, how small are they gonna get?
B- Too small.
J- Too small.
B- Too small.
J- Exactly.
B- That's one of the issues. Uhm, and, uhm,
J- Its just gonna get into this ridiculous russian doll situation. Isn't it? "Oh have you met my kid? Have you met their little kid? It's just gonna be... Hmm. *sigh*
Well in some ways Brett, i think your children aren't gonna be affected by a lotta things that affect other children, because your children... aren't real.
B- Yeah, yeah, okay, but
J- D'you see, do you see the distinction?
B- Yeah yeah, sure but, they still have issues. Uhm, they don't get taken seriously, uhm and they, they have to deal with all the imaginary stuff. Like uhm, rouge unicorns, for example. Y'know.
J- Okay sure theres lots of stuff I haven't thought about i guess, sorry.
B- Uhm, my wife and I weren't able to have children, that's why we chose to imagine them. Uhm, the Doctor suggested it, and and uhm, it's actually been incredibly rewarding.
J- Bretts wife uhm, is unable to have children because she's not a real woman.
B- no she's, yeah she's imaginary.
J- An imaginary person.
B- Yeah, the kids take after her in that sence but she's,
J- Very beautiful.
B- She's very beautiful. She is a very beautiful woman.
J- Shes a very beautiful woman. Oh much, she's a much better kinda of woman than some of the woman that I've... imagined.

Business Time--

(B) We'll do another song..

(J) Oh yeah...
That's right baby.
Girl, tonight we're gonna make love.
You know how I how baby?
'Cause it's wednesday.
And wednesday night is the night that we make love.
Tuesday night's the night that we go and visit your mother, but wednesday night is the night that we make love.
'Cause everything is just right,
Conditions are perfect.
Theres nothing good on TV.
Conditions are perfect.

You leaning close and say something sexy like
"I might go to bed I've got work in the morning"
I know what your trying to say baby,
You're trying to say "oooh yeah, it's business time, it's business time.


(Both) It's business, it's business time!
(J) That's what you're trying to say you're trying to say lets get down to business
It's business time
It's business, it's business time!

Mmmm!

Next thing you know we're in the bathroom,
Brushing our teeth,
That's all part of it, that's foreplay
Then you go sort out the recycling, that's not part of it,
But its still very important.

Then, we're in the bedroom,
You're wearing that ugly old baggy t-shirt from that team building excercise you did for your old work.
And it's never looked better on you.
Oooh Team Building Excerise '99!
Ooh you don't know what you're doing to me.
I remove my jeans but trip over them 'cause I still got my shoes on,
But then i turn it into a sexy dance.
Next thing you know I'm down to just my socks
And you know when I'm down just to my socks what time it is
It's time for business
It's business time

(Both) It's business, it's business time!
(J) You know when I'm down to just my socks it's time for business that's why they're called business socks.
It's business, it's business time!

OOoohhh
Ooh!

Making love,
Making love for two,
Making love for twoooo minutes.
When it's with me you only need two minutes, 'cause I'm so intense.
Two minutes in heaven is better than one minute in heaven
you say something like, "Is that it?"
I know what you're trying to say
you're trying to say "Ooohh yeah, that's it."
then you tell me you want some more..
Well I'm not surprised.
But I'm quite sleepy.

(Both) It's busisness, it's business time!
(J) Business hours are over, baby.
(Both) It's business (Ohh!) , it's business time!

Bah, it's 3:13am, I'll do Humans Are Dead later, unless you have it, then tell me.

But I think you should put all of the lyrics that you have up on the site *nods* :P
:lol: :lol:

Yeah I'm new, will go to photo page and other stuff sooon soooooon.
Potato.
Har har har.. pchew pchew..

You live in Wellington? How jealous am I...

Is it really beautiful there, all the time? That's how I like to imagine it.

I just love the way Jemaine acts like a cottage cheese cottage might not be the best choice of building materials as well as not being very tasty.


Hell yeah that's my favourite line xD
And just the way he says it all, it's like oh-my-god-this-is-so-amazing-but-you-should-all-know-this-is-

It was Police Academy 4

We went for a walk
On our feet if i remember correct
We walked to the top of the hill and we ate sandwiches!
Yeah! Oh we'd just grab a sandwich, and put it in our mouths
Oh thats the only way to have sandwiches
Oh jenny!
Tell me, do you still walk? Do you still get into sandwiches in a big way?
I still walk but I'm not eating as many sssaaaandwiches as back then...

Oh.

Do you remember what we did up there at the top of the hill?
Kind of..
We were standing at the look out
Oh I remember exactly what we did at the lookout.
We just looked! Out, across the city from a little spot on the hilltops. Ohhh it's so pretty from way up there, we talked about how the lights from the buildings and cars seemed like reflections of the stars, that shone out so pretty and bright, that night..

It was day time.
...The day time, of the lights!

Do you remember what you said to me?
Not word for word actually Jenny but I remember there were some verbs.
Well you said meet me here in one year, you just needed some time to clear your head. And you seemed to have done that.

la lalala lala lalala lala la la

We have a child.
Paaaredon?
We have a child!
Why didn't you tell me Jenny?! Why didn't ya tell me that day we went to the top of the hill and we made sweet, oh how we made such sweet sweet sandwiches. Does it have my eyes my way with words does it look like me at all?

No not at all because we adopted him I can't believe you don't remember it was a very difficult process!

Haha apart from all the crazy hobos.

Lol. There aren't that many of them. The beaches are cold, but look alright. Wellingtons not that beautiful in the way of scenery, but if you want everything alternative, and basically everything else, it's the place to be.
It's beautiful in it's own unique way. Heh. It's pretty clean, as everybody says.

Scenery is either way up north island, way down south island, or a bit inbetween each of them.
The sunrises/sets are nice.

And I don't want to leave :)

It's horribly muggy atm though, :? Bleagh... But muggy is good I guess, it's all dark and cloudy when you look outside, and then when you actually go outside, it's about 30 degrees heh.

Where are you from?
Har har har.. pchew pchew..

Hey! Sorry it's taken me so long to realize you asked me a question! How rude of me... :oops:

I'm in Cincinnati, OH. You can see where it is in the states here at the FotC Frappr. It's not the place to be. It's not hip. :roll: It's got a river... the Ohio river actually. And it's across the river from northern Kentucky, which is pretty. I work at Music Hall which is cool.

Is it usually cold in Wellington? It seems that way.
Hope you stop by the forum again!

Hmm, well it's fricken FREEEEEEEZING in winter, but it doesn't snow. Horrible gale force winds, rainy sleet stuff, hail and other watery things. But it doesn't usually get past -5 to -10 degrees or anything.

Wellingtons weather is very random. Like in summer it'll be great for a couple days, you'll get burnt within 20 mins 'cause the ozone layer is right above us (YAY melanoma!), and then the next day you'll go out in a singlet + shorts and nearly die of hypothermia. Likewise in winter, just vice versa.

It's great, really. /end sarcasm :? :P

Yeah, I work in a games arcade, it's pretty wicked, most of the time. :)

Have fun!

Yikes! Unpredictable weather-check! Sounds challenging... Cincinnati not looking so bad after all. We get some swings, but none so dramatic.

Still, Wellington seems like a very hip place to live and I am jealous even now I know the weather is so volitile.

A games arcade? You must be a young'un! Or you are an adult who reeeeaaaaaly likes gaming. Either way, sounds like fun.

Lol, it is quite hip and unique. It's basically different to be not different.

And yeah, I'm 17, but my boss is about 40 and he's such a kid at heart, it's really really really awesome. The staff I work with are great :D
And I might be getting the assistant manager job in febuary sometime! woohoo!

Working in a music hall sounds pretty cool though, what kinda stuff do you get up to there?

I'm about to go post in the picture info forum thing, hehe.

That's excellent that you like your work~I think that's important. Particularly when you are young, as it can set the tone for future work endeavors. (and yes, as you can tell... I'm old - ancient by your standards, to be sure - just turned 35)

Music Hall is a great place to work. We work with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Cincinnati Opera, and the May Festival (traditional choral group of about 400). We also work with the ballet, and the occasional one-nighter that comes through town. Last year we had Duran Duran, Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show (VERY nice guy-very sweet), The White Stripes, Clay Aiken (see other threads for my opinion on THAT one), and Jessica Simpson. Quite the eclectic group, now that I think about it! But it's mainly the Symphony that we work with, so it's a nice change of pace when the one-nighters come through.

Both: That the most efficient answer
Both: Was to shut their motherboard-fucking systems dow-ow-ow-a-own.

Spoken robotically:

Pensive robot with Stephen Hawking robo-voice:
Can’t we just talk to the humans?
A little understanding could make things better.
Can’t we talk to the humans and work together, now?
