What's that from filter: "Foreva eva? Foreva eva."

This quote has been driving my roommate and I crazy for over a year. It's in a song, possibly TV show or movie. Basically someone asks "forever ever" (pronounced "foreva eva") in the context of "will you love me forever?" and then responds "foreva eva." ("yes I will love you forever). We think Will Smith said it at one point but we're not at all sure. We've googled but to no avail. Any idea what this is from or who said it?

Looking for a song with "they always will" repeated at the end.

I'm trying to find a song where, at least near the end, "they always will" was repeated often (at the end of every other line, I think). I've heard it a few times but have never been able to catch more of the lyrics, which seem somewhat indistinct. It's an upbeat rock song, perhaps leaning a bit towards pop, male singer. It sounds like it could be from the 80s. [more inside]

A hilarious but faintly remembered celtic ballad

I'm looking for a song with little to go on: I'm nearly (but not entirely) certain it was sung by Andy Stewart; it's basically a humorous ballad (in the story-telling sense) which ends up with the protagonist making a hasty exit from town, quite possibly chased by men with swords, quite possibly pulling his pants up as he goes, with a genius lyric in there somewhere on the important of learning discretion as the better part of valor.

What song did Paul and Storm sing about a house full of seamen?

A few months ago, I saw Paul and Storm in concert, opening for Jonathan Coulton. They sang a song about a pirate captain who brings his whole crew home, and his wife's dismay at discovering-- you guessed it-- seamen all over the house. The song isn't on either of their albums, and there's no mention of it on their site, so I don't even know if it's originally theirs or a cover. Google reveals message board posts from people who have heard them sing it, but nothing more conclusive. Please help me track down this song!

And they're coming to the chorus now...

DissectingArtFilter: I'd like to start to understand how certain (in my eyes, fantastic) lyrics are devised. Specifically, Stephen Malkmus's lyrics, as a part of Pavement. For instance, Gold Soundz. I can pick out some slant rhymes, and certain other techniques but can't figure out how they work in the context of the entire piece. I know that melody plays a huge role in making the song what it is, but sort of focusing on the lyrics part - any words of wisdom. (and yes, I'm possibly writing lyrics for my band at some point)
