Lyrical Pursuit

I'm going to steal a different type of trivia game from a local radio station. The object is to write two lines of lyrics from a well known song, nothing too obscure please. If someone gets it right, they do the next song. This is edited because of Saut's post below: Thou shalt not Google! Why take the fun out of the game. The same rules should apply as in the Music trivia thread. 24 hours should be the limit, then whoever stumped the panel should post another set of lyrics, hopefully a little easier!
Here are my two lines:

the museum director's with their high shaking heads

they kick white shadows until they play dead

I have a form of Google running inside my head. I have a jukebox that just plays songs all day. Some I like, some I don't.

I hear part of a song and then it is stuck in my head the rest of the day.

I had the Eagles through my head the day I put in the lyrics above.

Google, I don't need no stinkin Google. I can name just about any classic rock song from the lyrics.

Now the funny part, I have no friggin idea what song Mephex posted.

Well, that's the idea. Idn'it ?

If you don't know, use Google. Just have fun with it. If you're going to use Google every time, I don't see how that would be any fun for you, or anyone else

You'll kill yourself when you hear it, perripken.

It's Joe Walsh's "The Confessor"

Took me awhile too, I could hear it in my head, but couldn't place it.


Here's one you should get.

She was such a naughty nanny

I hang my head in shame for myself.

I can't believe I made that blunder either.

The only thing I have to say for myself is that they are both Harrison tunes. And that is the weakest excuse there is, but it is the only one I have.

I sentence myself to 2 hours of polka.


aahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, at least I got the Joe Walsh one right

I don't know if it's lack of interest because of the NFL Draft, or what. I'm going to give the answer because I won't be around tomorrow. Someone else will have to pick this thing up. It was The End, the Doors.

Sorry man... I had it on the board for over 7 hours. I knew I wouldn't be able to check back in until monday, so I answered it!
Now, we need the answer to yours and a new one. It's been over 24 hours.

Sion.... you had a stumper, but you didn't check back. I ended up googling for the answer. You didn't quite have the lyrics correct anyway.
They're supposed to be:
I used to have a job, but they shut it down.
I got a right to go to work, but there's no work here to be found.
Dire Straights- "Telegraph Road"

Anyways, here are my new lyrics:

Greedy little people in a sea of distress
Keep your more to receive your less
