The Best Line in a Song

Every once in awhile, you find a song that has a great line in it.

(For example, Nirvana said, "just because you're paranoid doesn't mean their not after you"---thats totally great!!)

What "great lines" can you think of?

can't you see you're leaving me for an ugly girl
does she talk about politics and all the stuff that used to make me sick
does she smoke cigars and stay up late oh she's so great
does she tell you what you want to hear
and I bet that she can grow a beard
I'd feel better thinking you were queer
it's not fair I can't compare to an ugly girl

Fleming and John - "Ugly Girl"

Its just so freaking hilarious, I can't help but to laugh when I listen to this song.

these are all great ones.
a few of mine:

And time is a piece of wax
falling on a termite
whose choking on the splinters
-Beck "Loser" (duh)

Hes got a song about a love thats gone away
Sometimes his eyes shed tiny teardrops when he plays
His touching ballads are just there sitting to buy
They call it music but it seems more like a lie
Artificial life in the marketplace
Epic ballads by the musical whores
Life is so boring project theirs onto yours
Hear the anthems of the pepsi generation
See the martyrs of our spiritual degradation
Artificial life in the marketplace
American culture disneyland freak show
Screen in your living room
A window for your tomb
If you cant compare to the world sitting there
Repress your insecurities watch and escape
Give me artificial give me superficial
Give me a commercial life that can't be bought
This I say to you what I say is true
Emotions aren't a product to sell and cannot be consumed
Coming attraction its coming real soon
Prince is having lunch with pat boone
Want to know where all the bullshit goes
It goes down the sewer to be disposed
-Operation Ivy "Artificial Life"

Conditioned to self-interest with emotions locked away
If that's what they call normal i'd rather be insane
-Op Ivy "Here We Go Again"

That last line is my favorite. You should say it to a cop while giving him the finger. It's a great way to get away for the weekend.

Good grief, I screwed up my own post.

Previous Post should have said:

"You say you'll change the Constitution, well you know, we'd all love to change your head. You tell me it's the Institution, well you know, you'd better free your mind instead."
