You Too by Vowl Sounds

Verse / Pre-Chorus / Chorus borrowed from Eleanor Rigby - Middle 8 is original

In the shadows behind the door,
I see a body sprawled across the floor
but in the headlights of a passing car
it's just a fallen coat and nothing more
What are you so afraid of?

The dog next door begins to bark
at someone moving through the dark
A ghost that lingers out of view
breathes in my ear to say
"you too"

you too (what are you so afraid of?)
you too (what are you so afraid of?)

I brush my teeth at the bathroom sink
And something moves behind me as I blink
I turn around, there's nothing there
But by the drain, a strand of someone else's hair
what are you so afraid of?

the TV set glows eerie blue,
a moon trapped in the living room
death peers through the sliding door
and promises,
i'll come to you

you too (what are you so afraid of?)
you too (what are you so afraid of?)

Looking in the mirror, I see her face appear
Company for me inside this cage of fear

He calls to say that he'll be home late
He's meeting the boys from work for drinks at eight
In the bedroom, perfume I never wear
Lingers like a specter in the air
What are you so afraid of?

if your love was true you
wouldn't fear that he'd be
coming after you
the ghost of her
hangs in the mirror, whispering
"you too"

you too (what are you so afraid of?)
you too (what are you so afraid of?)
you too (what are you so afraid of?)
you...

You Too
by Lichen Throat
shadow entry
chords from "Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love" by Van Halen


Judy, shake me up!
Turn my chair around;
Help me with my cup;
Debit one more pound.
Drown the newborn pup;
Make the children cry.
Crush the buttercup;
Swat the butterfly.
If you can’t pay,
I’ll foreclose on you,
And if you complain,
Well, I’ll ruin you too.

I’ll take what you’ve got,
Rent it back for more.
If you feel distraught,
There’s the bloody door.
Sleep on a hard cot.
Bare walls where I dwell.
Keep my townhouse hot;
Ready me for Hell.
If you can’t pay,
I’ll foreclose on you,
And if you complain,
Well, I’ll ruin you too.

You’ll never be free;
I hold every deed.
Pay your rent to me,
Grandfather Smallweed.
Though I’m elderly,
I’ll outlive you all.
Bow to make your plea;
On your knees you’ll crawl.
If you can’t pay,
I’ll foreclose on you,
And if you complain,
Well, I’ll ruin you too.

You Too
by Max Bombast
Chorus riff on loan from American Woman by The Guess Who

We ran the show but now we're stepping aside
Gotta change up the lineup if we're gonna survive
It's time for you to take the reigns from us before it's too late
And now you too can have a chance to make the mistakes

We had one shot
We cocked it up
And the ricochet rebounded back at us
We set our sights
And then we missed
We ran out of all our old ideas and yet you persisted

You too could rule the world
How badly could you do?
We kings ran things for years and left the earth
Royally screwed
Here, take the keys, because
We've lost the right to lead
And now you too can take a turn
We're sorry that we left it burning

We ran the show but now we're stepping aside
Gotta change up the lineup if we're gonna survive
It's time for you to take the reigns from us before it's too late
And now you too can have a chance to make the mistakes

We lit it up
We burned it down
We ran the whole world straight into the ground
Now it's your turn
To set things right
And I don't envy every uphill battle you will have to fight

You, too, will try your best
You'll have to compromise
You'll swear an oath to only tell the necessary lies
I hope that you won't lock the horns
Or start a never-ending war but if you do
You too are caught in the loop

We ran the show but now we're stepping aside
Gotta change up the lineup if we're gonna survive
It's time for you to take the reigns from us before it's too late
And now you too can have a chance to make the mistakes

Here, take the keys, because
We've lost the right to lead
And now you too can take a turn
We're sorry that we left it burning
You won't lock the horns
Or start a never-ending war but if you do
You too are caught in the loop

Agony Sauce
You Too

Songs we knowingly stole from:
Oasis - Wonderwall
Nirvana - Lithium
Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child o' Mine
Blue Oyster Cult - Godzilla

Vocal samples:
Agony Sauce - Message Received
Alice in Chains - Man in the Box
Baha Men - Who Let the Dogs Out


(Anyway, Here's "You Too"...)

You're right, I guess we have met before
At first, I thought you were a roadie that used to work for us on tour
I'm surprised you held on to a grudge for so long
But if it's any comfort, those days are gone
Long gone

I'm sorry, I don't remember your name
You're almost familiar, but not important
It's a shame
by the sound of the crowd
they are not very loud
they've forgotten you too

You're right, I guess we have met before
We kicked your ass at the battle of the bands in '94
To be fair you weren't that great, you were forgettable

I'm sorry, I don't remember your name
You're almost familiar, but not important (Who? Who? Who? Who? Who?)
It's a shame
by the sound of the crowd
they are not very loud
they've forgotten you too

[I've got your M-E-S-S-A-G-E Received
Message Received]

You're right, I guess we have met before
You auditioned to be in our band
and you were so terrible

I'm sorry, I don't remember your name
You're almost familiar, but not important (Who? Who? Who? Who? Who?)
It's a shame
by the sound of the crowd
they are not very loud
they've forgotten you too

I'm sorry, I don't remember your name
You're almost familiar, but not important (Who? Who? Who? Who? Who?)
It's a shame
by the sound of the crowd
they are not very loud
they've forgotten you too

You Too

[Verse structure taken from "Blackbird" by the Beatles]

Dancing in the kitchen
Swaying all alone
You look up, smile
and set down the phone

Nestled in your embrace
I'm reminded how
I need your softness
and your strength

When you asked to marry me
I asked if you were sure
And when you said it was always me
I knew I would always be yours

[Solo]

When you asked to marry me
I asked if you were sure
And when you said it was always me
I knew I would always be yours

Life won't be perfect
but it's always worth it
When you say I love you
and I say I love you too
and I say I love you too
and I say I love you too
Music is love in search of a word...

You Too - Mandibles

Lead vox: Estaphonia
Lyrics, backing vox, instrumentals, mix: Cybronica
Good vibes: Truth (get well soon!)
Contrafacted song: Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey


I’ve been waiting for this moment it seems all year
With anticipation; Friday’s finally here
Popcorn in hand, date on my arm,
Hand the ticket to the teller with a hint of charm

What came next, I recall with dread,
He said, “Enjoy the movie,” And I said,

“You too” ...
“You too”
These words are haunting me
“You too”
A disturbing memory
“You too”
It’s done, I can’t unsay
These words that ruined my whole day.

The movie over, my head held low,
We’ve decided that the diner was the place to go
The promise of mozz sticks gives my spirit a lift
As we chatter with the waiter at the end of her shift

When she brings us our food, I wasn’t thinking ahead,
She said, “Enjoy your meal,” And I said,

Chorus

Bridge
The night is ending much too soon
We sit in my car by the light of the moon
Conversation is halting; something is wrong,
Words fall flat on the blade of my tongue
You say it’s late, better get going
We drive in silence, headlights glowing.
Stop at your house, walk you to your door,
Lean in for a kiss, but you want nothing more.

With what happens next, I’d rather be dead,
You said, “Drive home safely,” and I said,

Chorus

You Too
By glennny of Faster Jackalope

V1 (contrafact of Radiohead Karma Police)
All at once,In a huff
You state the problem
Got the funds?,You too?
Obscure perceptions
Then a gun,And a puff
Too late for counsel
You wanted Bono
But you got Cher

V2
Separate,‘Cuz it’s enough
Ensuing bedlam
I’m afraid,This time
There’s no conclusion
Fade away,At the end
The ball’s not bouncing
You lost your yo-yo
And that’s not fair

Chorus 1 (Contrafact of David Bowie- All the Young Dudes)
It’s around us, It’s in everything
It consumes them, And it’s menacing
It’s in you too

V3
Get it out,It’s getting loud
I can’t fight the feeling
I had to say,Beautiful day
It’s stand still running
Say goodbye, to the guy
It just takes ten seconds
Circumlocution
Is the solution

Solo (Contrafact of Depeche Mode- Everything Counts)

Chorus 2
I’m astounded That you’re answering
It behooves me To share my dragon fruit
Just for you too

Vowl Sounds
Canine Surprise
(companion piece to You Too--same instrumental track, with original melody from Eleanor Rigby)
Inspired by Peter Silk


Dog in a trenchcoat
Getting promoted at work and then sheds his disguise
Canine surprise
Look at him barking
Chewing up socks in the night when there's nobody there
Shedding his hair
Balls and bones and kibble
All of them are mine
Putrefying roadkill
Why does it taste so fine?
Dog in a trenchcoat fighting crimes

Elephant crime spree
This is the stealthiest pachyderm ever to live
Armed with a shiv
He'll stab you for peanuts
A killer as cold and as ruthless as anyone gets
He never forgets
Chop up all the bodies
Into little chunks
Put them in a trash bag
Throw them in the trunk
Dog in a trenchcoat fighting crimes

In the jungle, the lion sleeps tonight
He'll sleep with the fishes by the morning light

Crocodile witness
Reptile accounts aren't admissible in British court
Or so he thought
The elephant killer
Thought that his crimes would be lost in the old cold case files
But he lives in denial
The magistrate's a python
The barristers are pigs
I'm not sure how British courts work
I think they all wear wigs
Dog in a trenchcoat fighting crimes
