„Everybody's doin' a brand new dance now.
Come on baby, do the locomotion.
I know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance now.
Come on baby, do the locomotion.My little baby sister can do it with ease;

So come on, come on do the locomotion with me.“

„I said, I like my life. If I
have to give it back, if they
take it from me, let me only
not feel I wasted any, let me
not feel I forgot to love anyone
I meant to love, that I forgot
to give what I held in my hands,
that I forgot to do some little
piece of the work that wanted
to come through.“

„There's alot of things I want, a lot of things that I'd like to be.
But girl, I don't foresee a rags-to-riches story for me.
There's just one little dream I've got to come true;
There's just one round I've gotta win,
I can't be a loser with you.
Baby, baby, once in my life, let me get what I want,
Girl, don't let me down!
Just once in my life, let me hold on to one good thing I found!“
— Carole King Nasa 1942

„Day by day, we let love just walk away
And I'll be the first to say, I was glad to see it go
And day by day, ever since you went away
I'm finding I'm still missing you, and I just got to know…Does that blue moon ever shine on you?
I wanna hold you close to me, feel just like it used to be.
And baby, if you feel like I do,
You can come to me.“
— Toby Keith American country music singer and actor 1961

„I've had enough of danger
And people on the streets
I'm looking out for angels
Just trying to find some peace Now I think it's time
That you let me know
So if you love me
Say you love me
But if you don't just let me go…“
