FAVORITE LYRICS?

Every once in a while (or often actually), a particular lyric will strike me as memorable.

Post here when you've got one of those running through your head.

All I ask is you give proper credit to the song title and artist.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

So many memorable lyrics running through my head.

I love the lyrics to Tangled up in Blue by Bob Dylan. Taxi by Harry Chapin tells a great story too. Year of the Cat by Al Stewart. Last Chance Texaco by Rickie Lee Jones. Crazy River by Robbie Robertson... Lots of great blues lyrics; too many to list.

But, I guess if I had to narrow it down to the top 3 most memorable lyrical songs ever:

1. "Don't break my heart, my achy breaky heart..."
-Billy Ray Cyrus, Achy Breaky Heart

2. "Who let the dogs out, woof woof woof ... who let the dogs out, woof woof woof..."
-Baha Men, Who Let the Dogs Out

3. "What you gonna do with all that junk? All that junk inside that trunk? I'ma get, get, get, get you drunk, get you love drunk off my hump."
-Black Eyed Peas, My Humps

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

Wipe your tears away...

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

There are lots of great lyrics but very few were from channeling dead Egfyptian kings. ;wink:

LITTLE BIT OF ME -melanie '69?

Balanced on the mountain
With the people all around
Who say that I've been up too long
And they want to bring me down
Well I wouldn't mind the falling...no
It's the ones who come to see
If all I've got left inside
Is a little bit of me

Won't you hold my hand now
Hold my hand tight
Hold lightly in the day
And hold harder at night
Well I don't mind the coming down
It's the way it's got to be
What I hope I got left inside
Is a little bit of me

Now when it is all over
And I become a seed
They'll plant me in the universe
Where the balance gotta be
Now I don't mind the dyin', no.
It's the way it's got to be
But I hope I leave behind
Just a little bit of me
A little bit of me

Balanced on my mountain
With the people all around
Who say that I've been up too long
And they want to bring me down
I don't mind the coming down
It's the way it's gotta be
What I hope I got left inside
Is a little bit of me

Hope I got something left for me
Hope I got something left for me
Hope I got something left for me

If you should ever leave me

Well life would still go on believe me

The world could show nothing to me

So what good would living do me?

Baby's into runnin round hanging with the crowd

Puttin your business in the street and talkin out loud

Sayin you bought her this and that and how much you gonna spend

I swear she must believe its all heaven sent

Hey boy, you better bring the chick around to the sad sad truth about the dirty lowdown

I wonder wonder wonder who taught her how to talk like that
I wonder wonder wonder who gave her that big idea

-Boz Scaggs, Lowdown

And when you bite your lip it's a reaction to luh-u-uv.

Watch him as he goes

There goes my hero

He's ordinary.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

Hey, what's the point of this?

Hey, what's your favorite song?

Maybe we could hum along

I think you're smart you sweet thing

Tell me your name, I'm dyin here

Hey, maybe just a smile

Oh hey, did you know that I can't dance?

Could we talk for awhile?

I think you're smart, you sweet thing

Tell me your sign, I'm dying here

And it all comes down to you

Well you know that it does

And lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice

Oh and it lights up the night!

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

Baby sneezes, mommy pleases, daddy breezes in.

So good on paper, so romantic, but so bewildering.

I know nothing stays the same, but if you're willing to play the game, it's coming around again

So don't mind if I fall apart, there's more room in a broken heart.

And I believe in love, what else can I do, I'm so in love with you.

- Carly Simon, Coming Around Again

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

A moment of love,

A dream aloud,

A kiss, a cry, our right, our wrongs...

Just stay there, cause I'll keep coming over...

While our blood's still young, it's so young, it runs...

Won't stop til it's over

Won't stop to surrender...

- The Temper Trap, Sweet Disposition
