the clash, remothered, and call me, maybe

Tabatha's got poetic song lyrics at her blog this month--including advice songs on Friday!--and so I offer these, remixed for six moms to perform at a karaoke party for our graduating seniors...


Should You Stay or Should You Go || The Clash

Darlings we got to let you know--
Should you stay or should you go?
If we say that "you are mine"
You'll be here 'til the end of time!
So we got to let you know
You should not stay, yeah, you should go!

It's always "please, please, please"
You're happy when we're on our knees
One day it's fine and next it's black
And now we want you off our backs
Well, we got to let you know
You should not stay, yeah, you should go!

Should you stay or should you go now?
Should you stay or should you go now?
If you go, there will be trouble
And if you stay it will be double
So we got to let you know


This indecision's bugging me (esta indecision me molesta)
We don't quite want to set you free (si no me quieres, librame)
We don't know who you're supposed to be (digame que tengo ser)
We don't know which clothes even fit you (no sabes que ropas me queda)
But we got to let you know (me tienes que decir)
Should you cool it or should you blow? (me debo ir o quedarme)

Split!

Should you stay or should you go now? (yo me enfrio o lo soplo)
Should you stay or should you go now? (yo me enfrio o lo soplo)
If you go there will be trouble (si me voy va a haber peligro)
And if you stay it will be double (si me quedo sera el doble)
So we gotta let you know (me tienes que decir)
Should you cool it or should you blow? (me debo ir o quedarme)

Should you stay or should you go now? (tengo frío por los ojos)
If you go there will be trouble (si me voy va a haber peligro)
And if you stay it will be double (Si me quedo sera eldoble)
So we got to let you know (me tienes que decir)
You should not stay, yeah you should go!


Call Me Maybe || Carly Rae Jepsen


I threw a wish in the well
Don't ask me I'll never tell
I looked for you as it fell
And you were on your way

I trade my soul for a wish
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I always waited for this
But now you're on your way

Your hand was holding
Diapers, skin was showing
Long nights
Learning, knowing
Where you think you're going baby?

Hey I just burped you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
It's hard to let go of you baby
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Hey I just raised you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
And all the other kids
Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me maybe

You'll take your time with the call
Bet you can't wait until fall
You give me nothing at all
And still you're on your way

I beg and borrow and steal
There's no denying it's real
I didn't know I would feel this
But you're on your way

Your hand was holding
Diapers, skin was showing
Long nights
Learning knowing
Where you think you're going baby?

Hey I just burped you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
It's hard to let go of you baby
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so so bad
Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so so bad, bad, bad, bad....

It's hard to let go of you baby
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Hey I just burped you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
And all the other kids
Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so so bad
Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
So call me, maybe
