Tequila sunrise  == > Tempurpedic mattress/showroom/salesgirl

It's a Tempurpedic showroom
Pushing mattreses to try
As sales go by. /???
It's another tequila sunriseStarin' slowly 'cross the skySaid goodbye
He was just a hired handWorkin' on the dreams he planned to tryThe days go by
Every night when the sun goes downJust another lonely boy in townAnd she's out runnin' 'round
She wasn't just another womanAnd I couldn't keep from comin' onIt's been so long
Oh, and it's a hollow feelin'When it comes down to dealin' friendsIt never ends
Take another shot of courageWonder why the right words never comeYou just get numb
ISTANBUL (Canadian version)
Thunder Bay: Fort William and Port Arthur
Now it's Thunder Bay, not William and Arthur
It's a wondrous town with a name that's far superiorNow it's Lakehead delight on a stormy night.
Every gal in William and ArthurLives in Thunder Bay, not Willi-am or ArthurYou've a rainy date in William or Arthur?She'll be waiting in Thunder Bay.
Newfoundland and Labrador was once just NewfoundlandWhy'd they change it (Folks might talk)?They like it better on the Rock.
So, take me back: Fort William and Port ArthurNo, you can't go back in time, it's much too fartherBeen a long time past, from William and ArthurWhy the name-change? Here's the crux:It's no one's business but Canucks.
Thunder Bay, Thunder Bay.

In 1930, "Istanbul" was designated as the official name of the largest city in Turkiye (Turkey), known in earlier periods as Byzantium, and Constantinople, and primarily as Istanbul since the fall of the Byzantine empire in 1453.
In 1949, "Newfoundland" joined Confederation as Canada's tenth and newest province; in 2001, the Canadian Constitution was amended to revise the province's name to "Newfoundland and Labrador" (the mainland area of Labrador included less than 5% of the province's population but the majority of its landmass). The island of Newfoundland (NEW-found-land) is known by its inhabitants as "the Rock". 
In 1953 (the 500th anniversary of the "fall of Constantinople"), the Four Lads, a Canadian singing quartet who had moved from Toronto to the United States, acquired their first gold record with the release of the jazz-band style "Istanbul (not Constantinople)". Other hits by this group include "Standing on the Corner" and "Moments to Remember". 
In 1970, the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario (current population about 110,000), at the western end of Lake Superior was formed by the merger of the two smaller communities of Fort William and Port Arthur.  
Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not ConstantinopleBeen a long time gone, ConstantinopleNow it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night
Every gal in ConstantinopleLives in Istanbul, not ConstantinopleSo if you've a date in ConstantinopleShe'll be waiting in Istanbul
Even old New York was once New AmsterdamWhy they changed it I can't sayPeople just liked it better that way
So, take me back to ConstantinopleNo, you can't go back to ConstantinopleBeen a long time gone, ConstantinopleWhy did Constantinople get the works?That's nobody's business but the Turks

"Oh, it's obvious chivalry's dead,"   , published at OEDILF, by ?
The distraught, distressed damsel once said.
But when Gent held the door
She yelled, "Look, sexist boor,
I can manage!" Poor Gent scratched his head.
While the author is certain that a man can be chivalrous while allowing a woman her independence and rightful place in a liberated society, he recognizes that, for some men, it's a fine line to walk.

 take it you already know
of tough and bough and cough and dough.
Others may stumble, but not you,
On hiccough, thorough, laugh and through.
Well done! And now you wish, perhaps,
To learn of less familiar traps.

Beware of heard, a dreadful word
That looks like beard and sounds like bird.
And dead-it's said like bed, not bead.
For goodness sake, don't call it deed!
Watch out for meat and great and threat.
They rhyme with suite and straight and debt.

A moth is not a moth in mother,
Nor both in bother, broth in brother,
And here is not a match for there,
Nor dear and fear for pear and bear.
And then there's dose and rose and lose
Just look them up--and goose and choose.
And cork and work and card and ward.
And font and front and word and sword.
And do and go, then thwart and cart.
Come, come I've hardly made a start.

A dreadful language? Man alive,
I'd mastered it when I was five!
