Lyrics... Then and Now....

 You can guess which song I was listening to earlier:

 

 1978

RUSH LYRICS

"The Trees"

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream 'Oppression!'
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
'The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light'
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw

BIG SEAN LYRICS

"Dance (A$$) Remix"
(feat. Nicki Minaj)

[Hook:]
Ass ass ass ass ass ass ass
Ass ass ass ass ass ass ass
Ass ass ass ass ass ass ass
Stop... now make that motherfucker hammer time like

Go stupid, Go stupid, Go stupid

[Verse 1: Big Sean]
Wobble-dy wobble-dy wa wobble wobble
I'm st-stacking my paper my wallet look like a bible
I got girlies half naked that shit look like the grotto
How your waist anorexic and then your ass is colossal
Like whoo
Drop that ass make it boomerang
Take my belt off bitch I'm Pootie Tang
Tippy tow tippy tay you gonna get a tip today
Fuck that you gonna get some dick today
I walk in with my crew and I'm breaking they necks
I'm looking all good I'm making her wet
They pay me respect they pay me in checks
And if she look good she pay me in sex
Do it!
Bounce that ass (ass), it's the roundest (roundest)
You the best (best), you deserve a crown bitch
Right on that,

[Hook:]
Ass ass ass ass ass
Ass ass ass ass ass
Ass ass ass ass ass
Stop... now make that motherfucker hammer time like...

Go stupid, go stupid, go stupid

[Verse 2: Nicki Minaj]
Wobbledy wobble, wo-wo-wobble, wobbin'
Ass so fat, all these bitches' pussies is throbbin'
Bad bitches, I'm your leader, phantom by the meter
Somebody point me to the best ass-eater
Tell 'em "Pussy clean!" I tell 'em "Pussy squeaky!"
Niggas give me brain 'cause all of them niggas geeky
If he got a mandingo, then I buy him a dashiki
And bust this pussy open in the islands of Waikikiiiiii...
Kiss my ass and my anus, 'cause it's finally famous
And it's finally so, yeah, it's finally so!
I don't know, man, guess them ass shots wore off!
Bitches ain't poppin', Google my ass
Only time you on the net is when you Google my ass
Ya fuckin' little whores, fu-fuckin' up my decors
Couldn't get Michael Kors if you was fuckin' Michael Kors
B-B-Big Sean, b-boy, how big is you?
Gimme all yo' money and gimme all yo' residuals
Then slap it on my ass, ass, ass...

[Hook]

[Big Sean:]
Woah, white girls, black girls, tall girls, fat girls
Shake that ass shake that ass, shake that ass
Shake that ass, shake that Ass, shake that ass
Go, go

Short girls, small girls, skinny girls, all girls
Shake that ass shake that ass, shake that ass
Shake that ass, shake that Ass, shake that ass

And I want all of that,

[Hook]

Go stupid!

  1. Today's music is a friggin' wasteland. For some reason, I watched Avril Lavigne's new video "Hello Kitty" the other day on YouTube. It was horrific, and I said so in the comments.

    Rush is thinking man's rock and roll. I saw them in concert three or four times back in the day. Back then, we had to actually get up off our asses and go see our heroes live in the flesh. These crazy kids today have no clue what real music is like.

    "The Trees" is one of 51 Rush tunes in regular rotation on my iPad. Therefore, I am cool and I rock!

    1. My YouTube review of "Hello Kitty": "Wtf? I'd rather hear two semi trucks full of empty beer cans colliding in a nitro glycerine factory. That was so bad I slid white hot icepicks through my ear drums.

  2. Comparing Avril Lavigne to Rush is like comparing a carrot stick to a nine course banquet.

  3. Umm...agreed, but nobody directly compared Avril Lavigne to Rush. I used Lavigne as an example of how utterly talentless and vacuous most of today's popular 'musicians' are.

    Rush and Lavigne are obviously polar opposites if any direct comparison was to be made.

    BTW...I just watched the BIG SEAN "Dance (A$$) Remix" (feat. Nicki Minaj) video...

    I've had bowel movements that were more intriguing.

    1. I didn't think you were comparing the two. I was only trying to reinforce your point.

      From my perspective, too much music by many of today's "artists" sucks; and it has nothing to do with the generation gap.
