Sunday Song Lyric:
What can one say about Lily Allen? The first single off of her latest album, "The Fear," is wry and fun (and has its own video game).
I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don't care about clever I don't care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

And I'll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
Cause everyone knows that's how you get famous
I'll look at The Sun and I'll look in The Mirror
I'm on the right track yeah I'm onto a winner

I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
And I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear
Cause I'm being taken over by the fear
You can see the video here. And for something completely different, here's Ms. Allen singing Britney Spears' "Womanizer."
I want to thank you for pointing me to my new favorite artist. I just ordered her album.

...didn't think there was room enough for another shovelful of dirt, yet there it is (tamps down the earth, walks away w/o regret).

I've gotten a bit of a kick out of Ms. Allen's new album, tho personally, I think "Not Fair" is the one to quote. The vaguely cowboyish music is hilarious alongside the lyrics:

There's just one thing
that's getting in the way
when we go up to bed
you're just no good
it's such a shame
I look into your eyes
I want to get to know you
and then you make this noise
and its apparent it's all over

She ain't no Amy Winehouse.

Ain't no "Pretty Little Norma Jean", Patty Loveless, or Dolly Parton, neither. Extra points for those who might know who "Pretty Little Norma Jean" is. Also more points for those who can connect the three references. I doubt Professor Adler does or can.

Fortunately for Ms. Allen, her loved ones, and those downwind of her.

I'm not sure how that's relevant, as Adler posted this one. What I'd like to know is how to block just the "Sunday Song Lyric" posts. When a conspirator starts doing "Friday cat blogging", I'm going to stop coming back entirely.

Oh, yeah! I forgot about that, though I think that those were just poems, originally. Anyway, "Sunday Cat Song Lyrics" would be super-awesome, dude!
