All Time Best

Post by sleepysilverdoor »

Phlub
Flowers bloom, wilt, and die
Stars burn out and so will I
But is it really that bad?

We passed our peak some years ago
Ten or fifty, I don't know
Been riding that momentum for some time

It's a shame that the party's ending soon
Can you believe we went to the moon?
It was a good time
Do you think we'll be that cool again?
Do you think it was our all time best?

And as the storm keeps rolling in
I feel the electricity on my skin
I don't want to know how this story ends

It's a shame that it all goes away so soon
I still can't believe we went to the moon
Man, it was a good time
I don't think we'll be that cool again
I think that was our all time best

All Time Best
The Pannacotta Army

You shake up my bones
Rattle me from head to toe
Stimulate my zones
Making all my juices flow
Baby when you’re near me
I can’t sit still

When you’re on the floor
Hips swinging to the beat
What am I hesitating for?
I need to get up on my feet
Baby when I see you
I feel a thrill

There have been others
I confess
But let me tell you baby
You’re the all time best

I’m trying to keep my cool
But you keep turning up the heat
Take me back to school
I need to sharpen my technique
Do anything you want
I just don’t care

From the east side
To the west
No doubt about it
You’re the all time best

I feel unworthy
I’m at your mercy
Please don’t desert me, no

You’ve got the edge on
All the rest
No competition
You’re the all time best

All-Time Best
Lichen Throat

All this happened just yesterday,
In a couple hours around midday.
I went to an open house in West Old Town,
In Albuquerque so of course it was brown.
The neighborhood had an entrance gate,
Which I kind of like and kind of hate,
I had to call the realtor to get the code.
No one else there; I was the first to show.
A three-car garage, single story,
Kitchen and bathrooms hunky-dory.
Quite a bit of wear on all the floors;
The hallway had a built-in doggy door.
It was a very nice house,
But not the all-time best.
I wanted a couple more rooms
For our retirement nest.
So I called up my spouse,
Told her I was coming home,
And since it was about noon,
I’d pick up chicken and spring rolls.

I drove to I-40 on Rio Grande;
The onramp was closed, which changed my plans.
So, west on Lomas up the hill,
The dead car dealers were empty, still.
Lots of traffic by the State Fairgrounds,
Seemed like almost half the town.
Community college graduation day;
Why did I order from May Cafe?
Blocked intersections and honking horns,
I cursed the day those guys were born.
Half an hour later I finally arrived,
Cold food on the counter inside.
So much traffic on the streets,
This is the all-time worst.
Cars and trucks on the concrete
When will these guys disperse?
Too many cars on Central,
Too many by the fairgrounds,
South past the Jaded Temple,
I’ll take Zuni uptown.

Colorful tents in vacant lots,
And loaded shopping carts.
I haven’t been over here in a while;
It’s really fallen apart,
Just like pictures I have seen
Of sidewalks in Calcutta,
People living on the street,
Right beside the gutter.

A normal day for these guys
Would be my all-time worst:
To live exposed and ostracized
In hunger and in thirst.
I don’t know what policies
Would be the all-time best,
But I think these guys would settle for
Some shelter and some rest.

I'm sexy - A magnetic beast
You don't accept it - Oh baby please
(It's true)
There's not another as luscious
So fan yourself and join all the crushes

I'm strong - I can bench-press a house
You say you want proof - Cast aside your doubts
(It's true)
There's not another as beefy
'Cos you're so small you're all beneath me

I'm the all time best - The all time best


Some are good and some are great
But I'm the best there's just no debate
You may rise but you will fall
I'm the tops and I'm the greatest of them all


I'm smart - My IQ is huge
You don't believe me - You're gonna lose
That's me - The all time best
You say you doubt it - Well I can attest
(It's true)
There's no-one better than me
So step aside and have a seat

I'm the all time best - The all time best

I'm the tops and I'm the greatest of them all
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Whispers in the wind
Shadows on the wall
Who is the greatest of them all

Sword by my side
Potions in my belt
No one can stop the damage I have dealt

Hiding with stealth
Dagger at the ready
But you are not ready you are not ready

It's time to fight
The blood will be a sight

I am the all time best
I've killed all the rest
You can not tame
You'll all go down just the same x3

They say we laugh too loud at the dirty jokes
That we don't act our age or wear the right clothes
That's what they tell us
They know that they can't sell us
I think they're jealous

We are young like the night, on fire like the stars
We won't change our ways, we are what we are
They wanna be us
We make sure that they see us
They can't believe us

But we won't stop now
We're calling the shots tonight
You know we're not like the rest
They'll never take us down
And they can say what they like
'Cause babe we're at our all time best
Yeah babe we're at our all time best

They say it's such a sin and such a shame
That we won't close our eyes and play the game
We're talking crazy
The future's hazy
Don't need no one to save me

But we won't stop now
We're calling the shots tonight
You know we're not like the rest
They'll never take us down
And they can say what they like
'Cause babe we're at our all time best
Yeah babe we're at our all time best

Let's break the walls and let it fall and have it all, my dear
And I don't care if they, I don't care if they hear

'Cause we won't stop now
We're calling the shots tonight
You know we're not like the rest
They'll never take us down
And they can say what they like
'Cause babe, we're at our all time best

And we won't stop now
We're calling the shots tonight
You know we're not like the rest
They'll never take us down
And they can say what they like
'Cause babe, we're at our all time best
Yeah babe we're at our all time best

All Time Best
Leon Bullock

Born and raised a Northern Lad
Didn't get to know my Dad
but 3 siblings, Mum and me
Made a happy family
Living poor in a Council Flat,
Always knew that I was better then that.

Boarded a plane and hopped the pond,
I made Canada my home
made my way from town to town
sewed my seeds then settled down
But I ain't no Rolling Stone

The days are long,
and the nights are longer
it don't get easier, you just get stronger
just look inside, and you will find
your all time best is a state of mind

So many times I could have thrown my guitar out
but I'm not the kind of guy who give up without a fight.
The beats keep a comin' and the rhythm man, it just don't stop.

So many times I could have fumbled on the black
but you'll get bitten every time this shark attacks
You rack em up and go buy us a round,
As 1 by 1, I knock em all back down

The days are long,
and the nights are longer
it don't get easier, you just get stronger
just look inside, and you will find
your all time best is a state of mind
just look inside, and you will find
your all time best is a state of mind

45 years and man I've still not got it right
but building Rome just doesn't happen overnight.
If you look inside, I think you'll find
that your all time best is a state of mind

The days are long,
and the nights are longer
it don't get easier, you just get stronger
just look inside, and you will find
your all time best is a state of mind
just look inside and you will find
your all time best is a state of mind
it's a state of mind
it's just a state of mind

All Time Best
by Berkeley Social Scene

You said I could believe
(but you couldn’t believe)
We’d be like Adam and Eve
(but we’re not Adam and Eve)
If we could only conceive
(but we can’t concede)
The life we’d like to receive

You don’t, you don't have to guess
We’ll give it our all time best
Two people, two people so blessed
We’ll give it our all time best

I said you’re the one
(but I’m not the one)
You are second to none
(but I’m second to some)
We’ve only just begun
(we’ve only just begun)
And we shine like the sun

You don’t, you don't have to guess
We’ll give it our all time best
Two people, two people so blessed
We’ll give it our all time best

Standing together in our garden
We’re only getting started
Just getting to know

Always together in our garden
It’s waiting to get started
Just starting to show

You don’t, you don't have to guess
We’ll give it our all time best
Two people, two people so blessed
We’ll give it our all time best

You don’t, you don't have to guess
We’ll give it our all time best
Two people, two people so blessed
We’ll give it our all time best

I'm here to tell you I'm the all time best
I'm much better than the motherfucking rest
I'm here to tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna beat the shit out of you

I'm here to tell you I'm the all time best
Fuck you and your posse, I don't need your respect
Let's get in the cage, let's start throwing down
I'm the baddest motherfucker that has ever been around

I'm here to tell you I'm the all time best
I'll give you last rights and I'll hear you confess
It doesn't matter what you say right now
You'll shut up when I punch you in the mouth

All Time Best
(J. Bennett)

I've a heart.
Pounds in my chest.
It's not mine, some kind of test?
My monogram atop the rest...

Power lines over my head
carry basketball shoes instead.
They're not all mine.

He's been gone for so damn long.
"Go, go, rebuild my home! Rebuild my home!" he said.

My monogram atop the rest. All time best.

All Time Best
by Mandibles

It’s the car not the driver
A late arriver
A striver for speed
Turn the edge of the wing
It’s the smallest thing
That will bring down their lead
When the sparks are flying
And the sweat is blinding
And the slicks are grinding
I bring it in

I guess
My all time best
Is just a second behind the rest
I guess
My all time best
Is just a second behind the rest

Now my team’s lollygagging
Lug nuts dragging
This lagging’s the pits
Sit around, tires gone
Throwing new ones on
Took too long, dipsticks
When the sparks are flying
And the sweat is blinding
And the slicks are grinding
I still can’t win

I guess
My all time best
Is still a second behind the rest
I guess
My all time best
Is still a second behind the rest

Queen Anne had a thousand days
I have a thousand horses
We will meet where our lives align
Which, of course, is remorses

I guess my all time best
Is just a second behind the rest
I guess my all time best
Is still a second behind the rest
I guess with three abreast
The other two will not be impressed
I guess my all time best
Will stay a second behind the rest

All Time Best - WreckdoM

It's the dog's bollocks
It's the cat's pajamas
It's the greatest of all time
A humdinger
Lollapalooza
A fuckin' champion

It's the all time best
A singular phenomenon
It's the all time best

You know what I mean
It's the bomb
It's the shit
It's the bee's knees
And a bag of chips

It's the all time best
A spectacle that'll blow your fucking mind
It's the all time best

It's 10 foot tall with a cherry on top
It's cooler than the other side of the pillow
It's badder than old King Kong
It's the cat's meow and its whiskers
