"Well, I got a girl six feet tall 
Sleeps in the kitchen with her feet in the hall"

 and

"Well, two old ladies sitting in the sand
Each one wishing that the other was a man"

'Cumberland Gap' - Lonnie Donegan

 

You can see why skiffle was so popular in the 50's.

 

'Red Hot', as sung by George in Hamburg has veyr similar lyrics to the "six feet tall" lyrics above which always throws me.

"Well I gotta gal, six feet four, sleeps in the kitchen
With her face at the door"

From the Dead Kennedy's 'The Stars and Stripes of Corruption'

But what can just one of us do
Against all that money and power trying to crush us into roaches?
We won't destroy society in a day
Until we change ourselves first from the inside out

We can start by not lying so much
And treating other people like dirt
It's so easy not to base our lives on how much we can scam
And you know it feels good to lift that monkey off our back

I'm thankful I live in a place where I can say the things I do
Without being taken out and shot
So I'm on guard against the goons trying to take my rights away
We've got to rise above the need for cops and laws

Let kids learn communication instead of schools pushing competition
How about more art and theater instead of sports?
People will always do drugs, let's legalize them, crime drops when the mob can't price them
Budget's in the red, let's tax religion

No one will do it for us, we'll just have to fix ourselves
Honesty ain't all that hard
Just put Rambo back inside your pants
Causing trouble for the system is much more fun

Thank you for the toilet paper, but your flag is meaningless to me
Look around, we're all people, who needs countries anyway?
Our land, I love it too, I think I love it more than you
I care enough to fight the stars and stripes of corruption

Let's bring it all down
Let's bring it all down, let's bring it all down
If we don't try, if we just lie
If we can't find a way to do better than this, who will?

 

There is no final victory, as there is no final defeat. There is just the same battle to be fought, over and over again. So toughen up, bloody toughen up.” - Tony Benn

“She said ‘I know a town where life’s a game and baseball’s all that’s real.

At night the faces light up, and the heroes take the field. 

First time

Oh I know its not your first time

First time

Yes I know i’ve seen your face before

Last time

Maybe in a past life,

or maybe it was last night

I don’t know”

-Widespread Panic - Rebirtha

"The pump don't work cause the vandals took the handles!"

-Bob Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues

"We could ride and surf together while our love would grow"

Just a snippet from the Yo La Tengo song ('Our Way To Fall') I posted in another thread, because this one verse really stuck out to me for some reason:

I remember your old guitar

I remember "I Can't Explain"

I remember the way it looked around your neck

And I remember the day it broke

I don't know, the extra detail of the Who song and the guitar breaking adds so much to it all...

Belle & Sebastian - I'm A Cuckoo

Jesus told me, go after every coin like it was the last in
The world
And protect the wayward child
But I'm a little lost sheep
I need my Bo Peep
I know I need My Shepherd here tonight

I was there for you
When you were lonely
I was there when you were bad
I was there when you were sad
Now it's my time of need
I'm thinking, do I have to plead to get you by my side?

I'd rather be in Tokyo
I'd rather listen to Thin Lizzy-oh
Watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku
There's something wrong with me, I'm a cuckoo

John Prine- Everybody

While out sailing on the ocean
While out sailing on the sea
I bumped into the Savior
And He said pardon me
I said "Jesus, you look tired"
He said "Jesus, so do you,
Why don't you sit down son
'Cause we got some fat to chew"

 

Makes me laugh every time

"When the four corners of this cocoon collide, you'll slip through the cracks hoping to survive. Gather your weight, take a deep look inside, are you really who they idolize? To pimp a butterfly."

- Kendrick Lamar, "Wesley's Theory", delivered by Josef Leimberg. 

A personal favorite line of mine, both in rap and music in general.

This utterly heartbreaking song by Steven Wilson (whose birthday is today) (under spoiler) called 'Routine', which is anything but

It's written from the point of view of a woman whose husband and sons have recently been killed. a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10 I highly recommend viewing the music video.

What do I do with all the children's clothes
Such tiny things that still smell of them
And the footprints in the hallway
Onto my knees scrub them away

And how to be of use make the tea and the soup
All of their favorites throw them away
And all their schoolbooks and the running shoes
Washing and cleaning the dirty steel sink

Routine keeps me in line
Helps me pass the time
Concentrate my mind
Helps me to sleep

And keep making beds and keep the cat fed
Open the Windows let the air in
And keep the house clean and keep the routine
Paintings they make still stuck to the fridge

Keep cleaning keep ironing
Cooking their meals on the stainless steel hob
Keep washing keep scrubbing
Long until the dark comes to bruise the sky
Deep in the debt to night

Routine keeps me in line
Helps me pass the time
Helps me to sleep

Routine keeps me in line
Helps me pass the time
Helps me to sleep

The most beautiful morning forever
Like the ones from far off, far off away
With the hum of the bees in the jasmine sway
Don't ever let go
Try to let go
Don't ever let go
Try to let go
Don't ever......

Also, these lines from another song of his called 'Happy Returns': 'The truth is, the years just pass like trains/ I wave but they don't slow down'

The entirety of Leonard Cohen's "Susanne" is simply poetic from start to finish.
