Subject: Favourite Lyrics.

Written By: Cheeky Ferret on 10/09/04 at 12:44 pm

What are your favourite lyrics?  Not necessarily whole songs but just words that you remember.

Mine are:

The sun isn't yellow it's a chicken - Bob Dylan (who else)
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year - Pink Floyd

He used to do surgery for the girls in the 80's but gravity always wins and wears him out.  Radiohead
Don't give me love, oh no none of that stuff it's your money i.m after baby.  The Wonderstuff
Forget your heart it's your bank I wanna break - The Wonderstuff

To name a few  ::)

If I was to start crying, show my innermost feelings
If I was to get down on bended knee and just plead my case
Would it thaw your frozen heart a little, maybe show some compassion
Or would you only feel pity, and then compelled to send me away

Oak Ridge Boys

why don't you and i get together, take on the world and be together forever.
heads we will, tails we'll try again.
why don't you and i hold each other, fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
'cause without you they're never gonna let me in.

Here are some of my fave Eminem lines:

"I won't stand for it and Christopher Reeve won't sit for it neither."

"Slim Shady- hotter than a pair of twin babies,
In a Mercedes Benz with the windows up,
When the temp goes up to the mid-80's."

"Mother, are you there? I love you.
I never meant to hit you over the head with that shovel."

"Talking how I fabricated my past,
He's just aggravated I won't ejaculate in his ass."

"So here we go again, out of our medicine,
Out of our minds and we want in yours- let us in!"

"I light a candle and place it up on the mantle,
Grab a knife by the blade and stab you with the f***ing handle."

"I'm cancerous, so when I dis,
You wouldn't want to respond back with a battle rap that you wrote for Cannabis."

"Of course they're gunna know what intercourse is,
By the time they hit fourth grade-
They got the Discovery Channel, don't they?"

"It seems like the media immedaitely points a finger at me.
So I point one back at 'em, but not the index or pinkie or the ring or thumb..."

"Nothing could stop her,
I shot her five times and every bullet bounced off her!"

"My 9 is like a guiding light at night, shining bright.
My grip is tighter than my f***ing wife's vagina."

"Sweet home Alabama, where the skies are so blue, sweet home Alabama, Lord I'm comin' home to you" - Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd

My love, you came to me like wine comes to this mouth
grown tired of water all the time - Dave Matthews, Two-Step

You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
well you just might find
you get what you need - The Rolling Stones, You Can't Always Get What You Want

You turn me on, I'm a radio
I'm a country station, I'm a little bit corny
I'm wildwood flower, waving for you
a broadcasting tower, waving for you - Joni Mitchell, You Turn Me On, I'm a Radio

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’.
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’.  - Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin'

What are your favourite lyrics?  Not necessarily whole songs but just words that you remember.

Chicks on Speed - "99 Cents".  (Album: 99 Cents)

Genre:  Released in 2003, but the 80s band "The Waitresses" could have released this 20 years earlier and nobody would have batted an eye.  (If you're an old fart like me who enjoyed the Waitresses, you'll dig Chicks on Speed.  If you're young enough that you have no idea who the Waitresses were, but like Chicks on Speed, you'll *really* enjoy the Waitresses!)

I’m not crazy about money but - I like what it can do!
Shopping is a cultural activity - in this world nothing's for free!
Buy a book, or buy a car - look what a stud you are!
It's not the what, it's more the where - who you know and how!

99, 99, 99, 99 cents (Luxury, the income tax of vanity!)
99, 99, 99, 99 cents (Luxury, the income tax of vanity!)
99, 99, 99, 99 cents (Lux-u-ry-is-the-in-come-tax-of-va-ni-ty!)
99, 99, 99, 99 cents (Luxury, the income tax of vanity!)

.just bought a classic car
..dubbed this to cassette to play on the way home
...still enjoying the hell out of paying the income tax of vanity :)

Reno was an aimless girl, a geographic memory.
Cathy was a Jesus-freak, she liked that kind of misery.
Vicky had this special way of turning sex into a song.
Camelia couldn't sing, kept the beat and kept it strong.

Xylla was an archetype, the voodoo queen, the queen of rap.
Joan thought men were second best to masturbating in the bath.  ;D
Sherri was a feminist, she really had that gift of gab.
Kathleen's point of view was this:  take whatever you can grab.

Seattle was another girl who left her mark upon the map.
Karen liked to tie me up, and left me hanging by a strap.  ;)
Jeannie had this nightclub walk that made grown men feel underage.

Mimi brought the taboo back and held it up before the light.
Marilyn who knew no shame, was never, ever satisfied.
Julie came and went so fast, she didn't even say good-bye. :P

Well, Rhonda had a house in Venice, lived on brown rice and cocaine.  8)
Patty had a house in Houston, shot cough syrup in her veins.  :-X
Linda thought her life was empty, filled it up with alcohol. ???
Katherine was much too pretty, she didn't do that sh*it at all.

Uh-uh. Not Katherine.

Jean-Marie was complicated, like some French film-maker's plot. :-\\

Sarah was a modern dancer, lean pristine transparency.
Janet wrote bad poetry in a crazy kind of urgency.
Tanya Turkish liked to fu*ck while wearing leather biker boots.  :)
Brenda's strange obsession was for certain vegetables and fruits.

Roeena was an artist's daughter, the deeper image shook her up.
Dee-dee's mother left her father, took his money and his truck.  >:(
Debbie-Rae had no such problems, perfect Norman Rockwell home.
Nina, sixteen, had a baby, left her parents, lived alone.
Bobbie joined a new-wave band, and changed her name to Bobbie-sox.  ;D
Eloise, who played guitar, sang songs about whales and cops.
Terri didn't give a sh*it, just a nihilist.
Ronnie was much more my style, she wrote songs just like this.
Jezebel went forty days drinking nothing but Perrier.
Dinah drove her Chevrolet into the San Francisco bay.
Judy came from O-hi-o, she's a Scientologist.

Misheard lyrics.

My favorites aren't necessarily the words, but how they are sung.

Two that stand out are "Detachable Penis" by King Missile and "Pepper" by Butthole Surfers. Henry Rollins "Liar" is funny also.

you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
and racing around to come up behind you again
the sun is the same in a relative way but you older
shorter of breath and one day closer to floyd"time"

cofusion will be my epitaph
as i crawl a cracked and broken path
if we make it we can all sit back amd laugh
but i fear tomorrow i'll be crying................ king crimson"epitaph"
