Best line from a song?

Recommended Posts

Just going through my songbook...and came across this one.

 

It's John Prine, I think....song is "Dear Abby"

 

Dear Abby, Dear Abby, well I never thought.

That me and my girlfriend would ever get caught.

We were sittin' in the backseat just shootin' the breeze.

With her hair up in curlers and her pants to her knees.

Signed, "Just Married".

This has always been on of my favorite lines:

 

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year.

 

And from John Hiatt, (first heard it from B.B. King):

 

I had a guitar hanging just about waist high

And I'm gonna play this thing until the day I die

 

And a fun one:

 

Well now you heard another side to the story

but you wanna know how it ends?

If you must know the truth about the tale

go and ask the milkman.

My mama's talkin' to me

She tells me how to live,

But I don't listen to her

'Cause my head is like a sieve.

 

My daddy he disowned me

'Cause I wear my sisters clothes,

He caught me in the bathroom

With a pair of pantyhose.

 

The basketball coach

Done kicked me off the team

For wearing hi-heel sneakers

And acting like a queen.

 

The world's coming to an end

And I don't even care,

As long as I can have my limo

And my long blonde hair.

 

And it don't bother me

If people think I'm funny,

'Cause i'm a big rock star

And I make a lot of money!

 

I'm so bloody rich,

I own apartment buildings,

Shopping centers, condominiums

And I only know three chords!

You fools - watch me now.

Cheech & Chong... [thumbup]

My very first job, I said thank you please

They made me scrub a parking lot down on my knees

Then I got fired for being scared of bees

And the only gave me fifty cents an hour

Delia, oh Delia, Delia all my life

If I hadn't-a shot poor Delia, I'd have had her for my wife

Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

 

I went up to Memphis, and I met Delia there

Found her in her parlor, and I tied her to her chair

Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

 

She was low-down and travellin', and she was cold and mean

Kind of evil make me want to grab my sub-machine

Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

 

First time I shot her, I shot her in the side

Hard to watch her suffer, but with the second shot she died

Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

 

But jailer, oh jailer, jailer I can't sleep

'Cuz all around my bedside I hear the patter of Delia's feet

Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

 

So if your woman's devilish, you can let her run

Or you can bring her down and do her like Delia got done

Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

 

Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

"Can't Sleep, The Clowns Will Eat Me" From Dragontown album

 

 

It happens to me every night

Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me

They always want to take a bite

Can't sleep, the clowns will eat me

And if you think this isn't real

I'll show you wounds that never heal

To them I'm just a happy meal

Again, going through my song book... Sam Cooke:

 

This other fella told me, he had a sister who looked just fine

 

Instead of bein’ my deliverance, she had a strange resemblance

 

To a cat named Frankenstein

You tell me this town aint got no heart. well, well, well, you can never tell.

The sunny side of the street is dark. well, well, well, you can never tell.

Maybe thats cause its midnight, in the dark of the moon besides.

 

Maybe the dark is from your eyes, You know you got such Dark Eyes

 

Don't tell me this town ain't got no hear

When I can hear it beat out loud

No particular place to go,

So we parked way out on the Kokomo

The night was young and the moon was bold

So we both decided to take a stroll

Can you imagine the way I felt?

I couldn't unfasten her safety belt!

 

Ridin' along in my calaboose

Still tryin' to get her belt aloose

All the way home I held a grudge,

For the safety belt that

wouldn't budge

Cruisin' and playin' the radio

With no particular place to go.

And if it's bad, don't let it get you down, you can take it.

 

And if it hurts, don't let them see you cry, you can take it.

 

And if they stare, don't let them burn your eyes on your moving.

 

And if they shout, don't let them change a thing that you're doing.

 

Hold your head up, hold your head high............Rod Argent........

And if I fall again I hope that I'll find

Well, they took some honey from a tree,

 

Dressed it up and they called it me.

 

Everybody's tryin' to be my baby,

 

Everybody's tryin' to be my baby,

 

Everybody's tryin' to be my baby, now

Starry starry night, flaming flowers that brightly blaze

 

Swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in Vincent's eyes of chine blue

 

Colors changing hue, morning fields of amber grain

 

Weathered faces lined in pain are soothed 'neath the artists's loving hand
