Don't Come Here to Live

Postby AJOwens » Wed Aug 12, 2015 6:44 pm

(I'm going to tip my hand early on this one, in the vain hope it gets burgled for Song Fight Live. For my part, I'll try to come up with something suitably anthemic in the fullness of time.)

How greatly was this land conceived! How glorious its rise!
Our forefathers their faith believed, and in their starry eyes
The common lot of man was viewed with passion and with pride,
That all with equal rights embued would carry side by side
The banner of fraternity, and never stop to rest.
The hope of all humanity was harboured in our breast!

How mighty has this nation grown, how terrible its reach,
As in the world it stands alone, its mission now to teach.
And of its wisdom, so hard won, it generously gives
By calling from behind a gun, "Just don't come here to live!"
Behind its barricaded doors, the fires of freedom burn,
While off its green and prosp'rous shores, the huddled masses yearn.

To freedom's mighty flag unfurled, our hearts and minds we give.
With open arms we greet the world. Just don't come here to live!

"Don't Come Here To Live" by Cheesequake

Come here to work.
Come here to play.
Not to stay.
Come here to pump.
Come here to pay.
Don't come here to stay.

Come here to do.
Come here to be.
Then leave.
Come, come, come, come here to teach.
Come here to give.
Don't come here to live.

Don't Come Here to Live
by Primitive Screwheads, feat. Caravan Ray on backup vocals

Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Don't come here to live

Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Don't come here to live

Itching all the time
Makes me lose my mind
Shave off all my hair
Now I'm bald
Down there!

Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Don't come here to live

Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Don't come here to live

I went down to see the doctor
He said "Son, you've got it bad"
I said "Doc, you gotta help me"
He said… "Try some RID,
It's rad!"

Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Don't come here to live

Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Hey little creepy crawly
Don't come here to live

We’re so happy that you want to stay
But our city’s full please go away
We don’t want to turn away your kind
So come anyway, I guess we won’t mind

I know what you’ve seen on the TV
How we live our lives totally fancy free
But you really ought to know
Portlandia is just a show

We are passive, and aggressive
Sacred bike rights often start fights
But we all drive, when you arrive
We say you'll never need a car

We have hipsters - Silly tricksters
We’re ironic - Catatonic
Brew our own beer, but please don’t fear
‘Cause there’s always PBR

So you live here now, you want a job?
I guess that’s cool - you’re not a slob
You could work at a restaurant
If that is the kind of job you want

What’s that you say? You have a degree?
A master’s in sustainability?
That’s really great, but so you know
I just got mine an hour ago

We are passive, and aggressive
Sacred bike rights often start fights
But we all drive, when you arrive
We say you'll never need a car

We have hipsters - Silly tricksters
We’re ironic - Catatonic
Brew our own beer, but please don’t fear
‘Cause there’s always PBR

I guess we can’t talk you out of it
So welcome to Portland, We Give A Shit™
What’s that you say, you love the sky so blue?
Well I guess I’ve got some news for you…

We are passive, and aggressive
Sacred bike rights often start fights
But we all drive, when you arrive
We say you'll never need a car

We have hipsters - Silly tricksters
We’re ironic - Catatonic
Brew our own beer, but please don’t fear
‘Cause there’s always PBR
And there’s always PBR
And there’s always PBR

Don't Come Here To Live
- Kara van Rae

I loved you when I first met you,
but didn't realise that your motives were so heinous
Till that night after dinner when
you told me that you wanted to probe my anus

I know you've travelled a million light years across the universe just to be here
But what your civilisation wants with the contents of my colon
Well, that's not clear

Don't come here to live
The earthlings they won't understand
Don't come here to live
Even though it is your master plan

I'll never forget that first night when
You gently wrapped your tentacles around me
And your profuse mural secretions and 17 mammary glands
They still astound me

You know I'd happily subjugate myself to be a slave under your dominion
But the rest of the people on the planet might not be so keen,
just my opinion

Don't come here to live
To make us part of your galactic commonwealth
Don't come here to live
Take me away
I wanna keep you all to myself
I wanna keep you all to myself
I wanna keep you all to myself


Take me away
On your rocket to the stars
We'll build a little love nest up on Jupiter or Mars
Take me away
Just you and me alone
Call off your invasion
I think you should phone home

ET phone home
Sweetie phone home
ET phone home

Don't Come Here to Live by Jerkatorium

I was born here
And I was raised here
Now I’m working here and playing here
And living out my days here

But it’s not New York
And it’s not L.A.
It’s lame and it’s the same
As any small town USA

When I'd gotten to your age
I’d done nothin'
And I’d been nothin'

Follow in my footsteps,
You’ll get stuck here
But motherfuck here

Don’t come here to live
Don’t come here to work,
You got out of this town so don’t ever look back
You big stupid fucking jerk

You’ll do oh, so much better if
You don’t come here to live.
"Yes, I am a Muppet with B.O.; this song speaks to me." - Manhattan Glutton
