Great lines/lyrics....
A couple of my favourites....

Counting Crows

Yeah, well I already got my disease
So take your fucking filthy hands off of me
Well I hope you weren't expecting me to be crucified
The best that they can do is just to hang me from the nearest tree....




Del Amitri

And I don't wanna possess you, and I don't wanna take his place
But I don't wanna see my last few pleasures written all over his face

Re: Great lines/lyrics....
Big Macs for the fat, lo-cal wraps for the call centre battery hens,
Japanese snacks for the choice-spoilt
citizens, caviar kickbacks for the citadel denizens.
Airport shoeshines servicing the suits among
the little silver stereos and hand-rolled cheroots,
First class passengers file on last after
the scum are packed in with their tax-free loot.
Checkout calamity,
you're cheated out of loyalty points,
ten more years at this joint you'd be home & dry,
Beggars beat round the cash machines but
you just slip between them with the usual lie.
Terrible tales of kidnapped kids keep you
focused on the family and filling up the fridge,
Neighbourhood watchers shop dole dodgers,
stick their semis on the market & start racking up the bids.
Should you stand and fight, should you die for what you think is right
So your useless contribution will be remembered?
If you're asking me I say no, surrender.
Constant growth the cancerous cure,
a swarming race of profiteers ensure
Cheap cars for the rich,
cheap lives for the poor,
cheap weeks in the sun, free drinks at the door.
Puerile propaganda plugs up the TV,
keep folk following the money so they'll never be free
Keep them swallowing the swill, the celebrities,
the paedophiles, the immigrants invading from the
camp over the hill.
War talk, the big debate,
footsoldiers in the capitol liberating new kinds of hate
Cum-shots of human dots caught in the
spotlight's glare; he dies who dares.
Fatuous fast-trackers sneering at the shelf-stackers,
little Middle-Englanders can't stand the backpackers,
Fortress Freedom, come on in, take your chances-you might win.
Should you stand and fight, should you die for what you think is right
So your useless contribution will be remembered?
If you're asking me I say no, surrender.
Sunset beaches security patrolled,
keep out the undesirables who don't accept the code
Equal opportunity to live in total
poverty, execute the ignorant incarcerate the slow
Car caressing managers choking up the
avenues, brain dead patriots standing in salute
Paperwork raining again and again so that
billionaires can claim there's an enemy to shoot
Pill pushers, doorsteppers,
personal goal shoppers,
lifestyle trendsetters, meditating mindbenders,
Hare-brained share sellers pumping out stocks til
you're choking on a chain-letter avalanche of dross.
God squads crawling through every country
tracking down fools who are bullshit hungry
Blinded by divinity followers fall into
the man-traps set along the Wailing Wall.
Athletes compete in grand charades while
tanks flatten streets and a nation laughs,
Visa holders gape at the changing guards
while creeps bribe bums to take their photographs.
Film fans flock to the latest schlock,
blockbusters block out even the vaguest thought
Bankrupt schools grind out fool after fool
then feed them to a system where idiots rule.
Polling booths, phone votes,
bogus questionnaires, you get a say as if anybody cares
Joe Public doesn't want to play so
liquidate his life as he looks the other way.
Don't get sick,
don't get wise or they'll gut you
with a *justice* where everything is lies
March down Main Street,
complain if you want but it's twenty
years straight for the losers at the front.
If you're asking me I say no, surrender

Through these eyes there's no God above me
No devil below me, no purgatory, no pearly gates
The worms are what await me
It's only me that can forgive me

And I have faith, oh I have faith
I have faith, oh I have faith in those who put up with me

That's one of few (if not the only) songs where the title appears just once. And at the end.

Don't forget Virginia Plain by Roxy Music.

Steel Panther telling it like it is...

Fuck the Goo Goo Dolls, they can suck my balls
They look like the dogs that hang out at the mall
Eminem can suck it, so can Dr. Dre
They can suck each other just because they're gay
They can suck a dick, they can lick a sack
Everybody shout, "Heavy metal's back!"

Death to all but metal

Death to Papa Roach, Blink 182
All those fucking pussies sounds like doggy-doo
Wearing baggy pants, spiking up their hair
They're not worth the crust on my underwear
Where is Def Leppard? Where is Mötley Crüe?
Why do all my lyrics sound like Dr. Seuss?

Death to all but metal

Kills those fucking fuckheads who programme MTV
They can suck my ass with all the record companies
Death to Britney Spears, kill the little slut
Kill Madonna too and then fuck her in the butt
Fuck Mariah Carey, death to Sheryl Crowe
They can kiss each other on the camel toe
50 Cent's a fag, so is Kanye West
Shooting hot sperm on each others' chest

Death to all but metal etc etc...

Every night me go to sleep, me have wet dreams
Every night me go to sleep, me have wet dreams
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down

You in your small corner, I stand in mine
Throw all the punch you want to, I can take them all

Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down

Look how you're big and fat, like a big, big shot
Give the crumpet to big foot Joe, give the fanny to me

Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down, so he said
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down
Lie down girl let me push it up, push it up, lie down

In ancient times...
Hundreds of years before the dawn of history
Lived a strange race of people... the Druids

No one knows who they were or what they were doing
But their legacy remains
Hewn into the living rock... Of Stonehenge

Stonehenge! Where the demons dwell
Where the banshees live and they do live well
Stonehenge! Where a man's a man
And the children dance to the Pipes of Pan

Stonehenge! 'Tis a magic place
Where the moon doth rise with a dragon's face
Stonehenge! Where the virgins lie
And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky

And you my love, won't you take my hand?
We'll go back in time to that mystic land
Where the dew drops cry and the cats meow
I will take you there, I will show you how

Mother say's I look a yob, me trousis are too tight
She says I ought to get a job and not stay out all night
She doesn't like my haircut, she says me friends are lousy
And then she says "It's gettin' late, can't miss me ousey-ousey"

Good choice Azel. That's one of few (if not the only) songs where the title appears just once. And at the end.

Chris Difford is a VERY smart writer.

Re: Great lines/lyrics....
I never thought it would happen
With me and the girl from Clapham
Out on the windy common
That night I ain't forgotten
When she dealt out the rations
With some or other passions
I said "you are a lady"
"Perhaps" she said. "I may be"
We moved in to a basement
With thoughts of our engagement
We stayed in by the telly
Although the room was smelly
We spent our time just kissing
The Railway Arms we're missing
But love had got us hooked up
And all our time it took up
I got a job with Stanley
He said I'd come in handy
And started me on Monday
So I had a bath on Sunday
I worked eleven hours
And bought the girl some flowers
She said she'd seen a doctor
And nothing now could stop her
I worked all through the winter
The weather brass and bitter
I put away a tenner
Each week to make her better
And when the time was ready
We had to sell the telly
Late evenings by the fire
With little kicks inside her
This morning at four fifty
I took her rather nifty
Down to an incubator
Where thirty minutes later
She gave birth to a daughter
Within a year a walker
She looked just like her mother
If there could be another
And now she's two years older
Her mother's with a soldier
She left me when my drinking
Became a proper stinging
The devil came and took me
From bar to street to bookie
No more nights by the telly
No more nights nappies smelling
Alone here in the kitchen
I feel there's something missing
I'd beg for some forgiveness
But begging's not my business
And she won't write a letter
Although I always tell her
And so it's my assumption
I'm really up the junction

Some you win and some you lose
I've spent my hole lifetime falling on a bruise
And if I had the chance to do it all again
I'd change everything

Re: Great lines/lyrics....
he Flaming Lips

Do you realize that you have the most beautiful face
Do you realize we're floating in space,
Do you realize that happiness makes you cry
Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Re: Great lines/lyrics....
The Darkness. "Solid Gold". They even made a video and released it as a "single": bit pointless considering the first two lines meant it would never get near radio.

Still, admire their chutzpah!

LYRICS

We're gonna blow people's fucking heads off
Ooh, they're gonna shit themselves
Crying out for more
Caution, wet floor
This one's going out to the fans
Hell bent for denim and leather
Notoriety and wealth
After the show
I think we both know
This fist ain't gonna bump itself

We are legends
With a power that you can't deny
We're immortal
'Cause these songs will never die

And we're never gonna stop
Shitting out solid gold
And we're never gonna stop
Shitting out solid gold

There's a guy coming down from Sony
Artist and Repertoire
If he likes what he hears in those stupid ears
I'll buy myself a faster car
He's blowing smoke up our asses
Everything we do is ace
He wants to wine and dine us, desperate to sign us
'Cause we melted his fuckin' face

We are legends
With a power that you can't deny
We're immortal
'Cause these songs will never die

And we're never gonna stop
Shitting out solid gold
And we're never gonna stop
Shitting out solid gold

Stone cold foxes screaming in the front row
Sacred promise of fellatio
Soul, it can be sold
Lo, and behold
Behold!

And we're never gonna stop
Shitting out solid gold...

(.... Just continues until end...) Hilarious work. Rocks like a bastard, too. 👊👍

Re: Great lines/lyrics....
Naked as sin an army towel covering my belly
Some of us weep, some of us howl, knees turn to jelly
But next
Next
I was just a child
A hundred like me
I followed a naked body
A naked body followed me
Next
Next
I was just a child when my innocence was lost
In a mobile army whorehouse
A gift of the army, free of cost
Next!
Next!
Next!

Me, I really would have liked a little bit of tenderness
Maybe a word, maybe a smile, maybe some happiness
But next
Next
Oh, it was not so tragic
And heaven did not fall
But how much at that time
I hated being there at all
Next
Next
I still recall the brothel trucks, the flying flags
The queer lieutenant slapped our arses
Thinking we were fags
Next!
Next!
Next!

I swear on the wet head of my first case of gonorrhoea
It is his ugly voice that I forever fear
Next
Next
A voice that stinks of whiskey
Of corpses and of mud
The voice of nations
The thick voice of blood
Next
Next
Since then each woman I have taken into bed
They seem to lie in my arms
And they whisper in my head
Next!
Next!
Next!

All the naked and the dead could hold each other's hands
As they watch me dream at night in a dream that nobody understands
And though I am not dreaming in a voice grown dry and hollow
I stand on endless naked lines of the following and the followed
Next
Next
One day I'll cut my legs off
I'll burn myself alive
I'll do anything to get out of life to survive
Not ever to be next
Next
Next
Not ever to be next
Not ever to be next

Re: Great lines/lyrics....
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
...
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
Every year is getting shorter; never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines.
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over
Thought I'd something more to say.
