Red Skates

Red Skates, by 15-16 puzzle

When smashing up the fashion state
There are so many rules of late
That have to be unlearned
Like "no white after Labor Day"
It comes off as a bit passe
As far as I'm concerned

But some rules ain't made to be broken
And sometimes your mother knows best
And if you've been skating
You know who I'm hating
And how they're improperly dressed

I hate all those people who are in the red skates
What's the matter with all the folks in the red skates?
They're painfully stupid
And lacking in taste
And, yes I'd repeat this
If ever I saw one face-to-face, until then, well

I'd imagine they're quite easy to hustle
Ease up of the brains and you fire up the muscle
They don't seem to notice
When something goes wrong
You just misdirect them
And show them you're strong enough to make a scene that no one will forget
Long enough to beat the spread and cover all the bets

It's no joke that the people in the red skates all have been lied to
"One should dress for sucess"
And Lord knows that they tried to
But some fashion victim
Has led them astray
He told them the red skates
Were leading the way

They're too just-out-of-style to be thought of as retro
It's just tired and old, and they all need to let go
Pay some attention
To what lied ahead
And open their eyes up
And stop seeing red
Cuz that's not what we need to turn this all around
Make sure all those hatchets have been buried underground
Down with the red skates

Red Skates by The Loose Laces

You've got red skates, you've got black hair
You're more elusive than a millionaire
I try to catch you when you pass
But all I ever see is your ass

If I could put brakes on your skates
You would find we have a lot in common
I like to lift heavy weights
And you have a real nice bottom


If you would slow down for a bit
I could put you in a groovy trance
You know I'm totally legit
I'll make you dance like there's ass in your pants


One time I chased you down your street
Cuz yer bum was like a tractor beam
Can we bump uglies when finally meet
you've got the cutest ugly I've ever seen

Red Skates
By WreckdoM

I got my rainbow headband
and my knee high tube socks
With my skin tight t-shirt
all the people see me work it
and it's not just rollin'
It's a way of life!

I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
In red skates! I'm the man, I'm the man
In red skates! I'm the man, I'm the man
In red skates! I'm the man, I'm the man!

And all the ladies go crazy!
For my good vibrations
They want my boogie oogie woogie woogie
and I'm gonna give it to them
Who wears short shorts? I WEAR SHORT SHORTS!

I'm the man, I'm the man, I'm the man
In red skates! I'm the man, I'm the man
In red skates! I'm the man, I'm the man
In red skates! I'm the man, I'm the man!

The Likely Lads

Like an angel on wheels you rolled into my life
You held my hand although my balance just ain't right.
She keeps going round in these pretty rings
When I hear you rolling it makes me want to sing - make me want to sing -

Just like Chris De Burgh's Lady in Red I got your Red Skates on my mind
Just like Chris De Burgh's Lady in Red I got your Red Skates on my mind

Like the Last Song of the night I wish you'd never stop
All Pirouettes and fancy turns while I struggle to stand up

Just like Chris De Burgh's Lady in Red I got your Red Skates on my mind
Just like Chris De Burgh's Lady in Red I got your Red Skates on my mind

Your Red Skates on my mind


He's pure evil is Chris De Burgh.

Red Skates by the Sugarpot Gamelan

The old days of beercan ashtrays
And rich kids who want to write plays
At the time were equatable with hell,
But I thought of them when I threw change in the wishing well.

From the crowd my name was spoken.
I tried to get clean, but the pipes were all broken,
So I packed them all up and I gave the box a shove,
Crawled through the alley and the next day I fell in love.

There's just one time I've met someone I've loved -
He kept me wanting more.
And though I'm not tired of all this waiting
I just wish I knew what it is that he's waiting for.

My good friend is gone now
He let his head loose and it changed him somehow,
When the heat would be down like a talking drum,
sayin 'live now when you're young, pretty soon your time's gonna come."

He left then, in quite a hurry,
And it's been so long my memories are blurry,
But I hope that he's there when I get to my home
Because life's not the same without the only one you've ever known.

Then a girl went by with her red skates on
And I knew just then that my whole life was gone,
So I looked to the west tried to follow the sun,
But it got away and what comes next is a different one.
