Best Song Lyric

Recommended Posts

For me. 'Til Tuesday', "Voices Carry".

"He said shut up - he said shut up, Oh God ...blah blah blah..meh."

Should have just called the song "Shutup". The lyric resonates with me on another plain for some reason. I totally get it.

Got into a cab in New York City, there was an oriental man behind the wheel.  He started talking about heaven like it was real, real, real...

Not following without a band or lyric but sure. Whatever the lyric a slant eyed guy driving a cab singing something; it's in the quene.. So what are we talking about exactly?

I guess I didn't realize there were rules.  Is this a game?

We had a similar discussion recently and my same answer is...

If you don't expect too much of me, you might not be let down.

Ah the laughter of the lovers
As they run through the night
Leaving nothing for the others
But to choose off and fight
And tear at the world with all their might
While the ships bearing their dreams
Sail out of sight

Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter

And me, I'm flying in my taxi
Taking tips, and getting stoned
I go flying so high, when I'm stoned

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious

Way back in HS a friend of mine was in a band(singer).  One night she tells me hey listen to this song we wrote and she played "Voices Carry".  For days I was telling everyone how great her band was and that she was this awesome vocalist until I saw that video on MTV.    She laughs her ass off every time she tells that story.

:doh:

For me it's a tie between different lyrics in the same song.

 

 

I was lonelier than Kunta Kinte at a Merle Haggard concert
That night I strolled on into Uncle Limpy's Hump Palace lookin' for love
It had been a while

 

 

 

 

Day or so had passed when I popped the clutch
Gave the tranny a spin and slid on into
The Stinky Pinky Gulp N' Guzzle Big Rig Snooze-A-Stop
There I was browsin' through the latest issue of "Throb"
When I saw Bambi starin' at me from the back of a milk carton
Well, my heart just dropped
So, I decided to do what any good Christian would
You can not imagine how difficult it is to hold a half gallon of moo juice
And polish the one-eyed gopher when your doin' seventy-five
In an eighteen-wheeler
I never thought missing children could be so sexy
Did I say that out loud?

Sometimes I think it's a shame

When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain

Sometimes I think it's a sin

When I feel like I'm winnin' when I'm losin' again

Imagine

John Lennon

 

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or…

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

A guy who owned more expensive things than 99% of the population and he was preaching this crap? 

And on top of it he adds, fvck you all who have faith in God.

At this election time this reminds me of what current day liberal democrats are going to see in a couple years if Biden (bernie) wins.

 

Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air
You better watch out
There may be dogs about
I've looked over Jordan, and I have seen
Things are not what they seem


[Verse 2: Roger Waters]
What do you get for pretending the danger's not real
Meek and obedient, you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel
What a surprise!
A look of terminal shock in your eyes
Now things are really what they seem
No, this is no bad dream

Did you also tell everyone how your friend sang on "Time Stand Still" by RUSH?

I wish I was a fisherman
Tumblin' on the seas
Far away from dry land
And it's bitter memories
Castin' out my sweet line
With abandonment and love
No ceiling bearin' down on me
Save the starry sky above
With light in my head
With you in my arms

woohooo!

You've Got Another Thing Coming

If you think I'll sit around while you chip away my brain
Listen I ain't foolin' and you'd better think again
Out there is a fortune waiting to be had
If you think I'll let it go you're mad

But every song's like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair

God part 2.

 

Don't believe in incest. Don't believe in rape. But every time she walks by wild thoughts escape.

You glorify the past when the future dries up.

Now the folks around south Louisiana
Said Amos was a hell of a man
He could trap the biggest, the meanest alligator
And he'd just use one hand
That's all he got left 'cause an alligator bit it
Left arm gone clear up to the elbow

Polk salad Annie, the gators got your granny
Everybody says it was a shame
Cause her momma was a workin' on the chain gang
(A wretched, spiteful, straight-razor totin' woman
Lord have Mercy, pick a mess of it)

Hey ladies, hey fellas
And the people who don't give a f**K
All the lovers all the haters
And all the people that call themselves players
Hot mommas, pimp daddies
And all the people rolling up in Cadies
Hey rockers hip hoppers
And everybody all around the wooooooooooooooooooooorld

And the rich man in his summer home
Singing just leave well enough alone
But his pants are down, his cover's blown
And the politicians throwing stones
So the kids, they dance, they shake their bones
'Cause it's all too clear we're on our own
Singing ashes, ashes, all fall down
