What are your favorite lyric lines? Any subject, genre; happy, funny, sad, deep and meaningful, or just plain beautiful lines. No rules really apart from it should try to be one line only, or maximum 2 lines to give context or completion. Only three entries from different songs per post, but post as often as you like. No continuity from previous posts needed necessarily.
Here's 3 from me to get started ....
Lindisfarne, Fog on the Tyne. 'Sittin in a sleazy snack-bar suckin sickly sausage rolls'
Kris Kristopherson, Sunday Mornin' Coming Down. 'Well I woke up Sunday morning with no way to hold my head that didn't hurt And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad so I had another for dessert'
Victoria Wood. The Ballad of Barry and Freda (Let's Do It). 'Beat me on the bottom with a Woman's Weekly'
"Everything is possible, but nothing is real" Living Colour - Type
"Made a sharp turn and hooked a beeline, for that tender minute mender bad news sender liquid vendor" Love/Hate - Evil Twin
"Pink, it's like red but not quite..." Aerosmith - Pink
"It's hard to get by, when your arse is the size of a small country" Divine Comedy - National Express

NikGnashers: I was talking to an old WW2 Japanese kamikaze pilot, who said his code name was 'chow mein'. I asked how come he had lived to such an old age, he said "well, I was chicken chow mein"
