The Monday Melee Questions:

Say It With Lyrics Special Edition Monday Melee (Read about the rules for this special edition here This special edition is the brain-child of Vic at What Is It With Dykes and Guitars?)


This was by far the hardest Monday Melee to do, and probably the most rewarding to.

Vic! What a fabulous idea, now don’t go having another fabulous idea for a little bit though, this was a toughie!!! 😉

1. The Misanthtropic: Name something (about humanity) you absolutely hate.

Give me these moments back.
Give them back to me.
Give me that little kiss.
Give me your hand.

(I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.)

I should be crying, but I just can’t let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can’t stop thinking

Of all the things we should’ve said,
That were never said.
All the things we should’ve done,
That we never did.
All the things that you needed from me.
All the things that you wanted for me.
All the things that I should’ve given,
But I didn’t.

Oh, darling, make it go away.
Just make it go away now.

This Woman’s Work by Kate Bush (or Maxwell)

2. The Meretricious: Expose something or someone that’s phony, fraudulent or bogus.

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog’s eye.
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess,
Boy, you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.

I am the Walrus by the Beatles

3. The Malcontent: Name something you’re unhappy with.

They cut out my sex they bind my feet
Silence my reflex no tongue to speak
I work in the fields I work in the store
I type up the deals and I mop the floors
I am an endangered species
But I sing no victim’s song
I am a woman I am an artist
And I know where my voice belongs

My body is fertile I bring life about
Drugs, famine, and war, take them back out
My husband can beat me his right they say
And rape isn’t rape you say I like it that way

I am an endangered species
But I sing no victim’s song
I am a woman I am an artist
And I know where my voice belongs
I know where my soul belongs
I know where I belong

Endangered species by Dianne Reeve

4. The Meritorious: Give someone credit for something and name it if you can.

You say you’ll give me
Eyes in a moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest
But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

All I Want is You by U2

————————————————————–
5. The Mirror: See something good about yourself and name it.

You’re a boy and i’m a girl
But you know you can lean on me
And I don’t have no fear
I’ll take on any man here
Who says that’s not the way it should be

I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection

Protection by Massive Attack

————————————————————–
6. The Make-Believe: Name something you wish for.

I’m Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place

Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change

Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson

Hey cool stuff. It was a difficult thing to answer all the questions, I agree. But fun.

Cheers,
Vic
