Blue eyed Susans, standing in a domino line Falling in and out of love all the time They'll break your heart just to see a boy cry ah but not me I am a brown eyed loner, I march to my own drummer I'm a piccolo owner and the labor of my mother's love Honey you'd be a load off her mind
But with or without you My only plan is to be free With or without you I'm still me Ah
I'll join a band and sing like a canary Get out of here and change my name to Cherry And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary I am a keeper Oh, I am a keeper baby I am a keeper
Long stem roses, standing in a vase by my bed Standing tall like the dreams in my head I'm not gonna live in this house 'til I'm dead I like you a lot 'cause you're different a little You got answers to my riddles Your daddy is a pistol and you are a son of a gun I could be the daughter that he never wanted
But with or without you I'll buy a farm at the edge of the prairie Live off the land and change my name to Cherry And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary I am a keeper ah, I am a keeper baby I am a keeper
With or without you, my only plan is to be free With or without you Bye babe
I'll buy a sword and join the military Cut my hair and change my name to Cherry And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary I am a keeper ah, I am a keeper baby I am a keeper, oh, I am a keeper baby
I'm not one of those blue eyed Susans Ha ah, I'm doing my own thing
I am a keeper I am a keeper baby I am a keeper I am a keeper baby I am a keeper I am a keeper baby

The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" came top of a 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly. Many believe Annie Lennox is singing: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?"
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
The lyrics for "Mary, Did You Know?" were written by Christian singer and comedian Mark Lowry, after his pastor asked him to write a Christmas musical for their church. Southern gospel musician Buddy Greene later added music to his words.
