Two songs: "Diner" and "Stop Crying Your Heart Out"

We played "Diner" in our last Fifth Course classes together. Here it is:

By Martin Sexton, Ned Claflin

You might have seen one out in Minnesota
Or maybe down by the sea in Sarasota
But they were made back in Worcester, Mass.
Of aluminum and Bakelite and glass

Like a locomotive they were streamlined
And the blueprints were drawn up from a
dream of mine
Slap 'em up, put 'em on the train
Out to Michigan up to Maine

You may find a diner down in Georgia or
Carolina off the Twenty by the Piggly Wiggly
In the country out of Waynesboro
Or when it's getting late and rainy out in New
York State
You hang a louie off the thru-way
And you go and grab yourself a cheeseburger
At the Little Gem diner off Sixty Niner

Refrain: Diner my shiny shiny love
In the night you’re all I’m thinking of
Diner my shiny shiny love

The cruiser pulls in where the troopers
always stop
As we dine over the chrome
and Formica table top
The cashier she always squints
By the gum and the bowl of mints
She's tapping her toe
To the Dean Martin on the Consolette
Booth service and a cigarette
we're loving it so

Side of fries a dollar
Or the haddock plate two ninety five
A rootbeer float a Pepsi
And be sure to save some room
for some apple pie
Better make it a-la-mode

Refrain

Dean Martin God rest his soul
Talkin' to me from the cereal bowl
There's a couple from the Show Me State
Knockin' back a little meatloaf plate

Diner my shiny shiny love
Diner my shiny shiny love
Diner my shiny shiny shiny love

Chicken and biscuits
With a side of gravy
Peach cobbler


And here's "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" by Oasis:

By Noel Gallagher

Hold up, hold up
Don’t be scared
You’ll never change what’s been and gone

May your smile
Shine on
Don’t be scared
Your destiny will keep you on

’Cause all of the stars have faded away
Just try not to worry, you’ll see them some day
Take what you need and be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

Get up
Come on
Why you scared? (I’m not scared)
You’ll never change what’s been and gone

’Cause all of the stars have faded away
Just try not to worry, you’ll see them some day
Take what you need and be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

’Cause all of the stars have faded away
Just try not to worry, you’ll see them some day
Just take what you need and be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

We’re all of the stars, we’re fadin’ away
Just try not to worry, you’ll see us some day
Just take what you need and be on your way
And stop crying your heart out
Stop crying your heart out
