Meme taken from hernewshoes;

Put your media player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.

I've Been a Wild Rover for Many's the Year

Rocky Raccoon, Rocky Raccoon, he was a fool unto himself
Oh, Sullivan's John, to the road you've gone
Oh, she's my baby, let me tell you why
Did you ever sleep in a bear pit?
Lay down your sweet and weary head
Any time at all
Cats and rabbits would reside in fancy little houses
It's busk ye, me boys, get you up on the deck
One at a time, always ready to fight over the little things
I've got a word or two
It starts out like a murmur
Some things you never get used to
A burning hand
I know why they stop
Excuse me, but can I be you for a while
Got a good reason for taking the easy way out
Crying, crying, waiting, waiting, hoping, hoping
When this town gets lonely
Extra! Extra!
Finals blew, I barely knew my graduation speech
