    Default Favorite Lyric One-Liners

    I generally don’t care about amazing lyrics as long as a song sounds good. But I love me a good one-liner. You know, the parts of the song that you love to sing more than the others either because of the content, maybe it hits hard, or just the way it’s sounds in the context of the song. Not whole song lyrics. Just one-liners or maybe a couple of lines or some such thing like that. I have a lot that I never remember but I’m gonna start paying more attention and documenting them.

    “Excuse me while I kiss the sky.” - Jimi Hendrix

    “The sun’s not yellow, it’s chicken.” - Bob Dylan

    “I killed a man in Reno, just to watch him die.” - Johnny Cash
    “The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.”
    ― Ernest Hemingway

    Good stuff so far.

    I’m listening to Titus Andronicus’s The Monitor album right now because they’ve got the goods when it comes to this sort of thing.

    "And fifteen minutes later
    We had our first taste of whiskey
    There was uncles giving lectures

    At five o'clock in the evening
    Every basturd there was piskey" - The Pogues (sorry this one's a whole verse but it's just too ******* perfect)



    This thread is awesome. I'm very much a "listen to the words, man" guy so this is right up my alley.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the wall
    For a lead roll in a cage

    Got off in the wrong direction
    Found a hooker and lost my erection
    so I had to lie in the letter to the boys back home.

    Well the good guys and the bad guys
    they never work past Noon 'round here
    They sit side by side in the cantinas
    Talk to Senoritas and drink warm beer.
