The Dutchman

The Dutchman's not the kind of man
Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam
That holds his dreams in
That's a secret only Margaret knows
 
When Amsterdam is golden in the summer
Margaret brings him breakfast, she believes him
He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow
He's mad as he can be, Margaret only sees that sometimes
Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
Dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes
And his cap and coat are patched with the love
Margaret sewed there
Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam
 
He watches tugboats down canals
And calls out to them when he thinks he knows the Captain
Margaret comes to take him home again
Through the unforgiving streets that trip him
Though she holds his arm
Sometimes he thinks he's alone and he calls her name
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
The winter whirls the windmills 'round
She winds his muffler tighter, they sit in the kitchen
Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew
 
He sees her for a moment, he calls her name
And she makes the bed up, singing some old love song
She learned it when the song was very new
He hums a line or two, they hum together in the dark
The Dutchman falls asleep, Margaret blows the candles out
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me

Expectations

[Verse 1]
Up in bed, all alone
Wondering where you have been
Ten past three
I know the club closed at two A.M
I've already been through about seven scenarios
Bout what it was that changed your mind
Knowing very well that you told me you'd come home
And it happened every time
 
[Chorus]
Wish I had no expectations
I wish that I could get it through your head
With no confrontation
Really wish we could talk about it instead
All these tears that I've cried while I'm turned to the side
And you're in the same fucking bed
Wish I had no expectations
But I expect, you expect, we expect
 
[Verse 2]
I don't need to ply
I don't need no play by play
All I need from your side
Is for you to communicate
Oh, respect for my time, respect for my space
Respect for my energy
'Cause I've been waiting here all night for you to want me
And you haven't once thought of me
 
[Chorus]
Wish I had no expectations
I really wish that I could get it through your head
With no confrontation
Really wish we could talk about it instead
All these tears that I've cried while I'm turned to the side
And you're in the same fucking bed
Wish I had no expectations
But I expect, you expect, we expect
 
[Chorus]
I wish I had no expectations
I wish I could get through your head
With no confrontation
Really wish we could talk about it instead
All these tears that I've cried while I'm turned to the side
And you're in the same fucking bed
Wish I had no expectations
But I expect, you expect, we expect
 

Jealous Of My Boogie

Hey, DJ
Love the way
I lose my inhibitions when you spin
And I don't care if people stare
I'd rather boogie than try to fit in

Turn it up, let 'em scrutinize (I know you're watching)
Way up, 'cause the night is mine (I know you're watching)
Turn it up, lemme scandalize (I know you're watching)
Yeah, up under flashing lights

(No don't be)
Don't be jealous of my boogie, don't be jealous of my boogie
You can say that you are not, but I always see you lookin'
Don't be jealous of my boogie, don't be jealous of my boogie
You can say that you are not, but I always see you lookin'

I can't stop now
Won't slow down
I gotta emulate the BPM
I hit the scene and they turn green
It can't be easy, I don't envy them

Turn it up, let 'em scrutinize (I know you're watching)
Way up, 'cause the night is mine (I know you're watching)
Turn it up, lemme scandalize (I know you're watching)
Yeah, up under flashing lights

(No don't be)
Don't be jealous of my boogie, don't be jealous of my boogie
You can say that you are not, but I always see you lookin'
Don't be jealous of my boogie, don't be jealous of my boogie
You can say that you are not, but I always see you lookin'

I know you're watching
I know you're watching
I know you're watching
I see you lookin'

I know you're watching (Don't be jealous of my boogie)
I know you're watching (Don't be jealous of my boogie)
I know you're watching (You can say that you are not)
I see you lookin' (But I always see you lookin')

(No, no, no)
Don't be jealous of my boogie, don't be jealous of my boogie
You can say that you are not, but I always see you lookin'
Don't be jealous of my boogie, don't be jealous of my boogie
You can say that you are not, but I always see you lookin'

(Don't be, don't be so jealous of my boogie)

Okay, alright, hahahaha

Old Flames (Can't Hold a Candle to You)

[Verse 1: Kesha; Both]
Downtown tonight, I saw an old friend, someone who
I used to take comfort from long before I met you
I caught a spark in his eyes of forgotten desire
With a word, or a touch, I could've rekindled that fire
 
[Chorus: Kesha & Dolly Parton]
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
No one can light up the night like you do
Flickering embers of love
I've known one or two
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
Oh, yeah, ooh
 
[Verse 2: Dolly Parton & Kesha & Both]
But sometimes at night, I think of old lovers I've known
And I remember how holding them helped me not feel so alone
(feel so alone)
Then I feel you beside me, and even their memories are gone
Like stars in the night, lost in the sweet light of dawn
 
[Chorus: Kesha & Dolly Parton]
Oh, but old flames can't hold a candle to you
No one can light up the night like you do
Flickerin' embers of love
I've known one or two
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
But old flames can't hold a candle to you
Oh, yeah
 

Born to Love You

I was born in a town full of red pine trees
County sign says 'follow your dreams'
Westbound train makes the whole town shake
Friday night lights decide your fate
 
Born again in a church where the steeple's white
Preacher preach Book of John and my momma cried
Meaning of life was in verse two
Didn't make sense 'til I found you
 
I could search the world from south to north
But I've already found what I'm looking for
Wherever I go and whatever I do
I was born to love you, I was born to love you
 
Looking in your eyes, yeah it's all so clear
Every time you smile, I know why I'm here
Wherever I go and whatever I do
I was born to love you, I was born to love you
 
I was a wild child between lost and found
Then you spoke my name, it was a sweet sound
Rescue kiss and you pulled me in
All my life baby, where you been
 
'Cause I could search the world from south to north
But I've already found what I'm looking for
Wherever I go and whatever I do
I was born to love you, I was born to love you
 
Looking in your eyes, yeah it's all so clear
Every time you smile, I know why I'm here
Wherever I go and whatever I do
I was born to love you, I was born to love you
 
'Cause I could search the world from south to north
But I've already found what I'm looking for
Wherever I go and whatever I do
I was born to love you, I was born to love you
 
Looking in your eyes, yeah it's all so clear
Every time you smile, I know why I'm here
Wherever I go and whatever I do
I was born to love you, I was born to love you
