Got this idea for a debate from a friend on this site. First round is acceptance. second through fifth rounds are posting lyrics. Voters will vote for the lyrics they liked the best for that round. Obviously the person with the most votes after round 5 is over wins. Can only post lyrics that are from the 90's era, meaning 1990-1999. Any artist, any genre. Post artist, song title, year that song came out, and website you got lyrics from. Do NOT post link to actual song. The purpose is to get our voters to actually read the lyrics and base their vote solely on the lyrics, not whether or not they enjoy the music for the song. Good luck to whom ever my competitor will be.

Live- Hold Me Up 1994

'Hold me up in the palm of your hand
Lying to you is a river of sin
Your metaphors, your silent calls
Your feelings are too real
Let them spew, a fall from grace
Would do us good today

I'll lift you up, we can love or cry
Hey, I'm in love, I'll take you up again
Oh, oh...

All that to you in a church by the sea
We're late, but not in the same way
We're older today

I'll lift you up, we can love or cry
Hey, I'm in love, I'll take you up again
Your eyes have too many colours and I can only try
Your energy could be runnin' low, now
The juice is dry
Oh, oh...

Images we cannot leave behind
Like two riversides we roll back
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Lift me up
In the palm of your hand
Lying to you is a river of sin, oh...
Your metaphors, your silent calls
Your feelings are too real, oh...
Let them spew, a fall from grace
With your love you had today, oh, oh hey...'

Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to get a little fresh in here so you can get jiggy with it, if you're down with that. Never so swiftly have you been carried to your alternative musical destination. I don't know who they are, but They Might Be Giants.

They Might Be Giants, I Should Be Allowed To Think, 1994

http://www.lyricsdepot.com...

I saw the best minds of my generation
Destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical
I should be allowed to glue my poster
I should be allowed to think

I should be allowed to glue my poster
I should be allowed to think
I should be allowed to think
I should be allowed to think
And I should be allowed to blurt the merest idea
If by random whim, one occurs to me
If necessary, leave paper stains on the grey utility pole

I saw the worst bands of my generation
applied by magic marker to dry wall
I should be allowed to shoot my mouth off
I should have a call in show

I should be allowed to glue my poster
I should be allowed to think
I should be allowed to think
I should be allowed to think
And I should be allowed to blurt the merest idea
If by random whim, one occurs to me
If necessary, leave paper stains on the grey utility pole

I am not allowed
To ever come up with a single original thought
I am not allowed
To meet the criminal government agent who oppresses me

I was the worst hope of my generation
Destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical
I should be allowed to share my feelings
I should be allowed to feel

I should be allowed to glue my poster
I should be allowed to think
I should be allowed to think
I should be allowed to think
And I should be allowed to blurt the merest idea
If by random whim one occurs to me
But sadly, this can never be

I am not allowed to think
I am not allowed to think
I am not allowed to think (I am not allowed to think)
I am not allowed to think (I am not allowed to think)
I am not allowed to think (I am not allowed to think)
I am not allowed to think (I am not allowed to think)

Speaking of getting jiggy with it!

Woo
Uh, uh, uh, uh
Ha ha, ha ha
What, what, what, what
Ha ha ha ha
Uh
On your mark ready set let's go
Dance floor pro I know you know
I go psycho when my new joint hit
Just can't sit
Gotta get jiggy wit it
Ooh that's it
Now honey honey come ride
D-K-N-Y all up in my eye
You gotta Prada bag with a lotta stuff in it
Give it to your friend let's spin
Everybody lookin' at me
Glancin the kid
Wishin they was dancin' a jig
Here with this handsome kid
Ciga-cigar right from Cuba-Cuba
I just bite it
It's for the look I don't light it
Ill-way the an-may on the ance-day orr-flay
Giving up jiggy make it feel like foreplay
Yo my cardio is infinite (ha ha)
Big Willie Style's all in it
Gettin' Jiggy Wit It

Chorus:

(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it
(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it
(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it

What
You wanna ball with the kid
Watch your step you might fall
Trying to do what I did
Mama (uh) mama (uh) mama come closer
In the middle of the club with the rub-a-dub (uh)
No love for the haters the haters
Mad cause I got floor seats at the Lakers
See me on the fifty yard line with the Raiders
Met Ali he told me I'm the greatest
I got the fever for the flavour of a crowd pleaser
DJ play another
From the prince of this
Your highness
Only mad chicks ride in my whips
South to the west to the east to the north
Bought my hits and watch 'em go off a go off
Ah yes yes y'all ya don't stop
In the winter or the (summertime)
I makes it hot
Gettin jiggy wit 'em

(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it
(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it
(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)

Eight fifty I.S. if you need a lift
Whose the kid in the drop
Who else Will Smith
Living that life some consider a myth
Rock from south street to one two fifth
Women used to tease me
Give it to me now nice and easy
Since I moved up like George and Weezie
Dream to the maximum I be asking em
Would you like to bounce with the brother that's platinum
Never see Will attacking em
Rather play ball with Shaq and em
Flatten em
Psyche
Kiddin
You thought I took a spill
But I didn't
Trust the lady of my life she hitting
Hit her with a drop top with the ribbon
Crib for my mom on the outskirts of Philly
You trying to flex on me
Don't be silly
Getting jiggy wit it

(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it
(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it
(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it
(na na na na na na na nana na na na na nana)
Gettin jiggy wit it

Let's keep the flow. Keep it straight. Keep it smooth. Coming up next, brought straight from the streets from some might smooth women: Waterfalls.

TLC, Waterfalls, 1995, http://www.metrolyrics.com...

A lonely mother gazing out of the window
Staring at her son that she just can't touch
If at any time he's in a jam, she'll be by his side
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much

But all the praying just ain't helping at all
'Cause he can't seem to keep his self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money the best way he knows how
Another body layin' cold in the gutter

Listen to me
Dont go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers
And the lakes that youre used to
I know that youre gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Little precious has a natural obsession for temptation
But he just can't see
She gives him loving that his body can't handle
But all he can say is, "Baby is good to me"

One day he goes and take a glimpse in the mirror
But he doesnt recognize his own face
His health is fading and he doesnt know why
3 letters took him to his final resting place

Y'all, dont you hear me?
Dont go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers
And the lakes that youre used to
I know that youre gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Y'all, dont you hear me?
Dont go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers
And the lakes that youre used to
I know that youre gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast
Come on

I seen a rainbow yesterday but too many storms have come and gone
Leaving a trace of not one God giving ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray?
I pray, all ten fade away, seldom praise him for the seven days

And like his promise is true
Only my faith can undo the many chances I blew to bring my life to anew
Clear and blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes

No more lonely cries, my only bleeding hope
Is for the folk who can't cope with such an endurin pain
That it keeps them in the pourin' rain
Who's to blame for tootin caine into your own vein

What a shame, you shoot and aim for someone elses blame
You claim the insane for this day
And time for falling prey to crime
I say the system's got you victim to your own mind

Dreams are hopeless aspirations in hopes of coming true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

Dont go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers
And the lakes that youre used to
I know that youre gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Well since we're doing 90's you gotta throw some classic 90's grunge in here. I think at this point in the debate we're beginning to reach a state of pure... NIRVANA.

Smells Like Teen Spirit- Nirvana 1991
http://www.metrolyrics.com...

Load up on guns and bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's over-bored and self-assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us

A mulatto, an albino
A mosquito, my libido
Yeah, hey, yay

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us

A mulatto, an albino
A mosquito, my libido
Yeah, hey, yay

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it's hard to find
Oh well, whatever, nevermind

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us

A mulatto, an albino
A mosquito, my libido

This song seems appropriate to signify the end of the debate. My opponent and I have both agreed to a tie(per the comments). Please do not vote in either of our favors.

Our Lady Peace, Superman is Dead, 1996

http://www.lyricsfreak.com...

Do you worry that you're not liked
How long till you break
You're happy cause you smile
But how much can you fake
An ordinary boy an ordinary name
But ordinary's just not good enough today

Alone I'm thinking
Why is superman dead
Is it in my head
We'll just laugh instead
You worry about the weather and
Whether or not you should hate

Are you worried about your faith
Kneel down and obey
You're happy you're in love
You need someone to hate
An ordinary girl an ordinary waist
But ordinary's just not good enough today

Doesn't anybody ever know that the
World's a subway...
