Apple Bush

Alice Cooper, Pretties For You, 1969

But over in a land that’s in my backyard
There’s a people who succeed, they don’t try hard
Well, they found a way to live with ease
By eating from the bush instead of the trees

Apple bush, apple tree
Path to eternity
Find you a path and you follow the call
Apple bush, apple tree
Back to eternity
Cut you a path with a chance you may fall

Well, over in a corner, standing there
Telling my house that they haven’t a single care
But my house does not listen, it’s got a path of it’s own
Yet the bush and a tree, never leave it alone

Apple bush, apple tree
Path to eternity
Find you a path and you follow the call
Apple bush, apple tree
Back to eternity
Cut you a path with a chance you may fall

Someday like my house you’re going to choose too
If you cut this new path, well, the old one will do
And you live with the people who live with ease
The red apple bush and the blue apple trees

Turn It On Again

Genesis, Duke, 1980

All I need is a TV show; that, and the radio.
Down on my luck again – down on my luck again
I can show you, I can show you
Some of the people in my life.
I can show you, I can show you
Some of the people in my life.
It’s driving me mad.
Just another way of passing the day.

I… I… get so lonely when she’s not there.
I… I… I, I, I!

You’re just another face that I know from a TV show.
I have known you for so very long, I feel you’re like a friend.
Can’t you do anything for me?
Can I touch you for a while?
Can I meet you on another day?
And we will fly away.

I can show you, I can show you
Some of the people in my life.
I can show you, I can show you
Some of the people in my life.
It’s driving me mad.
It’s just another way of passing the day.
I… I… get so lonely when she’s not there.
I… I… I, I, I!

Turn it on
Turn it on, turn it on again
(I can see another face)
