New lyrics challenge: Envelope

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well, it looks like we got about 20 with "snow" in the lyrics but not in the title, and I'm sure there are plenty more.

Now, for a harder word. Let's go with "envelope."

In honor of "Momofmany," I'll go first with Jimmy Buffett's "Somewher Over China."

They're all somewhere over China
Shanghai or old Peking
On a plane or a boat in an envelope
Real adventure has its ring
Just to put a little distance
Between fact and fantasy
Still six thousand miles away from
Where I'd really rather be

I always thought that song should be more popular; it really catches the spirt most people have, down deep.

Next? Remember, the word is "envelope." Noun, not verb!

Living in your Letters by Dashboard Confessional

"Pouring over photographs.
I'm living in your letters.
Breathe deeply from this envelope
it smells like you and I can't be
without that scent. It's filling me
with all you mean to me."

You know, I have 482 songs on Itunes and one of them is bound to have the word envelope in the lyrics, but darned if I could think of one.

Ride The Wild Wind - by Queen
Ride the wild wind
Push the envelope don't sit on the fence
(Hey hey hey)
Ride the wind
Live life on the razor's edge
(Hey hey hey)
Gonna ride the whirlwind
It ain't dangerous - enough for me

one from Marty Robbins "That's all She Wrote"

That's all she wrote
Everything that I own in a small envelope
Leavin' me so alone that I wanted to die
The moment when I read her note
That's all she wrote

and one from Blackhawk "Postmarked Birmingham"


I recognize the writing
on the plain white envelope
I've wondered where she'd wind up
before she called or wrote
The answer's in a circle
through the word 'Love' on a stamp
Postmarked Birmingham

I kiss the cold, white envelope
I press my lips against her name
Two hundred words. We live in hope
The sky hangs heavy with rain


"Love Letter" by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds

Lol, I do...

Neil Young "Carmichal"

Silk scarf and a napkin
Hidden in a drawer
Two hundred bucks in an envelope
Labeled lenore


The Kingston Trio..."The Ballad of the Shape of Things"

Completely square is the little box he said my ring would be in
Completely square is the envelope he said good-bye to me in
Completely square is the handkerchief I flourish constantly
As I dry my eyes of the tears I've shed,
And blow my nose which turns bright red
For a perfect square is my true love's head

Speaking of the Kingston Trio, did you see one of the members died yesterday? Seventy-some years old.

Noooooo....I didn't see that! There is one downside to enjoying musicians who were popular either before I was born, or when I was little......they're all getting much older and passing away now!

"Across the Sea" by Weezer

They don't make stationery like this where I'm from
so fragile so refined
So I sniff and I lick your envelope
and fall to little pieces every time...
