  • Favorite Song Lyrics Random Thread

    This may have been done before. If so, forgive me. Thought I'd combine the random post idea with the song title game idea.

    Do have have favorite lyrics, or single lines, from songs in your life? Post them here. At least one line, two tops. Any song, any genre, any era. We're of course going for the "clean" and not "explicit" versions here if you know what I mean. I suggest maybe 2-3 songs at a time...doesn't matter what the person before you posted.

    If possible, give song title and artist for your lyric.

    To start:

    "She's living in L-A, with my best old ex-friend Ray...guy she said she knew well but sometimes hated..."
    Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels) Jim Croce

    "If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck...but if memories were all I sang, I'd rather drive a truck..."
    Garden Party, Rick Nelson

    If by chance that special place, that you've dreaming of...leads you to a lonely place, find your strength in love...
    Greatest Love Of All, Whitney Houston -

    Have fun with it! I've got plenty more...and if you're not sure of exact lyrics, it's okay with me if you "Google"...

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    You do what you do and you pay for your sins
    and there's no such thing as what might have been,
    thats a waste of time, drive you outta your mind.

      Now, Snoopy had sworn that he'd get that man
      So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan

      My lean baby tall and slim, a broomstick's wider but not as trim

      And it's five, six, seven open up the pearly gates
      there ain't no time to wonder why, whoopee we're all gonna die.

      Is that random enough?

        Pour me somethin' tall an' strong,
        Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane.
        It's only half-past twelve but I don't care.
        It's five o'clock somewhere.

            --Anna Nalick, Breathe

            "When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse
            Out of the corner of my eye
            I turned to look, but it was gone
            I can't put my finger on it now
            The child has grown
            The dream has gone"
            --Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb

              I'm so small and if I was a movie star
              I'd seal my youth in a can on reel
              And then I could be twelve feet tall
              That's why I wear my hair so big
              Some people think it might be a wig
              But it's all part of my plot
              To prove I'm not a dot

              Fleming & John, I'm So Small

              So come all you huddled masses, all you Yo-Yosimete Sams
              Make a wish and pitch your penny off the mighty hoover dam, yeah!
              And leave it all to beaver and start packing up the van
              Take the California aqueduct on down to Disneyland!

                Here are three random choices:

                He bought her a diamond for her throat
                He put her in a ranch house on a hill
                She could see the valley barbecues
                From her window sill
                See the blue pools in the squinting sun
                Hear the hissing of summer lawns
                - Joni Mitchell (Hissing of Summer Lawns)


                I have a secret to tell
                From my electrical well
                It's a simple message and I'm leaving out the whistles and bells
                So the room must listen to me
                Filibuster vigilantly
                My name is blue canary one note* spelled l-i-t-e
                My story's infinite
                Like the Longines Symphonette it doesn't rest
                -They Might Be Giants (Birdhouse in Your Soul)

                I got a stolen wife And a rhinestone life And some good ol' boys/I'm writing my will On a three dollar bill In the evening time/Matchsticks strike When I'm riding my bike to the depot/'Cause everybody knows my name At the recreation center/If I could only find a nickel I would pay myself off tonight
                -Beck (Sissyneck)

                    I thought about posting that one, too. Good choice!

                    BTW, it's beat up, not shot down.

                      That was going to be my choice!!!!!

                      See myself in the mirror with my eyes closed
                      I didn't apologize for
                      When I was eight and I made my younger brother
                      Have to be my personal slave

                      Did a large procession wave their
                      Torches as my head fell in the basket,
                      And was everybody dancing on the casket?

                      Now it's over I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want
                      Or, I'm still alive and there's nothing I want to do

                        I will let you down I will make you hurt
                        I wear my crown of thorns on my liar's chair full of broken thoughts I cannot repair beneath the stain of time the feeling disappears you are someone else I am still right here what have I become? my sweetest friend everyone I know goes away in the end you could have it all my empire of dirt

                        I will let you down I will make you hurt

                              Yeah. Beck has some fascinating lyrics. One can never take him too seriously, either.

                              Definitely this is the wrong place to be
                              There's blood on the futon
                              There's a kid drinking fire
                              Going down to the sea
                              They got people to meet
                              Shaking hands with themselves
                              Looking out for themselves.
