Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers.

Don’t compromise yourself. You’re all you’ve got.

I’m one of those regular weird people.

Tomorrow never happens. It’s all the same fucking day, man.

You are what you settle for.

You got to get it while you can.

I’m tired of all these hippie jack-offs

On stage, I make love to 25,000 different people, then I go home alone.

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?

You know you’ve got it, if it makes you feel good.

#305 Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.

You are what you settle for. You are only as much as you settle for.

If I hold back, I’m no good. I’m no good. I’d rather be good sometimes, than holding back all the time.

There isn’t going to be any turning point. … There isn’t going to be any next-month-it’ll-be-better, next fucking year, next fucking life. You don’t have any time to wait for. You just got to look around you and say, “So this is it. This is really all there is to it. This little thing.” Everybody needing such little things and they can’t get them. Everybody needing just a little … confidence from somebody else and they can’t get it. Everybody, everybody fighting to protect their little feelings. Everybody, you know, like reaching out tentatively but drawing back. It’s so shallow and seems so … fucking … it seems like such a shame. It’s so close to being like really right and good and open and amorphous and giving and everything. But it’s not. And it ain’t gonna be.

At least we know we tend to be afraid. If you object to my plural noun, I’ll retract it.

After they see me, when their mothers are feeding them all that cashmere sweater and girdle —– [expletive deleted by the New York Times], maybe they’ll have a second thought – that they can be themselves and win.

Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers. You can fill your life up with ideas and still go home lonely. All you really have that really matters are feelings. That’s what music is to me.

Janis Joplin Cry Baby Lyrics

Cry baby, cry baby, cry baby
Honey, welcome back home

I know she told you, honey I know she told you that she loved you
Much more than I did but all I know is that she left you
And you swear that you just don’t know why
But you know, honey I’ll always, I’ll always be around if you ever want me

Cry baby, cry baby
Oh honey, welcome back home

Don’t you know, honey
Honey ain’t nobody ever gonna love you the way I try to do?
Who’ll take all your pain, and your heartache, too?
And if you need me you know that I’ll always be around
If you ever want me

Cry baby, cry baby
Oh Daddy, like you always saying to do

And when you walk around the world, babe
You said you’d try to look for the end of the road
You might find out later that the road’ll end in Detroit
Honey, the road’ll even end in Kathmandu

You can go all around the world
Trying to find something to do with your life, baby
We only gotta do one thing well
You only gotta do one thing well to make it in this world, babe

You got a woman waiting for you there
All you ever gotta do is be a good man one time to one woman
And that’ll be the end of the road, babe
I know you got more tears to share, babe

So come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on
And cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry

And if you ever feel a little lonely, dear
I want you to come on, come on to your mama now
And if you ever want a little love of a woman
Come on and baby, baby, baby, babe, babe, baby now
Cry baby, yeah

Janis Joplin Piece Of My Heart Lyrics

Oh, come on, come on, come on, come on

Didn’t I make you feel like you were the only man? Yeah
An’ didn’t I give you nearly everything that a woman possibly can?
Honey, you know I did
And, and each time I tell myself that I, well I think I’ve had enough
But I’m gonna, gonna show you baby, that a woman can be tough

I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on and take it
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby
Oh, oh, break it
Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, have a
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby
Well you know you got it, if it makes you feel good
Oh, yes indeed

You’re out on the streets looking good
And baby deep down in your heart I guess you know that it ain’t right
Never, never, never, never, never, never hear me when I cry at night
Babe and I cry all the time
But each time I tell myself that I, well I can’t stand the pain
But when you hold me in your arms, I’ll sing it once again

I’ll say come on, come on, come on, come on and take it
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby
Oh, oh, break it
Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah
Oh, oh, have a
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby
Well you know you got it, child, if it makes you feel good

I need you to come on, come on, come on, come on and take it
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby
Oh, oh, break it
Break another little bit of my heart, now darling, yeah, c’mon now
Oh, oh, have a
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby
You know you got it

Take it, take another little piece of my heart now, baby
Oh, oh, break it
Break another little bit of my heart, now darling, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, have a
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby, hey
You know you got it, child, if it makes you feel good

Janis Joplin Summertime Lyrics

Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living’s easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cotton’s high, Lord, so high.

Your daddy’s rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
She’s looking good now,
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,
No, no, no, no, don’t you cry.
Don’t you cry!

One of these mornings
You’re gonna rise, rise up singing,
You’re gonna spread your wings,
Child, and take, take to the sky,
Lord, the sky.

But until that morning
Honey, n-n-nothing’s going to harm you now,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Don’t you cry,
Cry.
