Okay, post what you think is the greatest line or lines of lyrics in rock history. Here's mine:

When I Find Myself In Times Of Trouble, Mother Mary Comes To Me, Speaking Words Of Wisdom, Lets It Be

(Let It Be- The Beatles)

i'm
too sexy for my shirt
too sexy for my shirt
so sexy, it hurts.
Quote by rds0811
Just say something like "It's too bad money can't buy you a big dick" and there is nothing they can say to recover from it.

"And theres a rose, in a fisted glove - And the eagles fly, with the doves - And if you cant be, with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with"

----CSNY "Love the one you're with"


"Don't let go, you've got the music in you"

----New Radicals "You only get what you give"


"I can almost hear you sigh.."

----Rolling stones


plenty more... but those are the cool ones off the top of my head

my heart is broke but i have some glue
help me inhale and mend it with u
we'll float around and hang out on clouds
then we'll come down and have a hangover: thats my favorite verse in rock n roll

[Tricky]

Can't be with the one you love then love the one you're with
Spliff in the ashtray, red stripe I pull the lid
Her touch tickles, especially when she's gentle
But I don't hear her words 'cause I slide the instrumental
Keep the girl in the distance, moves are very hazy
No sunshine in my life the way I deal is shady

[3D]

Skip hip data to get the anti-matter
Blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter
To the sound of silence surrounded by the mass
Her face is on the paper not the strangers that I pass
The ones that looking back to see if they are looking back at me

[Daddy G]

Are you predator or do you fear me

[3D]

Yeah while I'm doing this I know
The place I really wanna go
The one I love but never gets near me

[Tricky]

It's a beautiful day, well it seems as such
Beautiful thoughts means I dream too much
Even if I told you, you still would not know me
Tricky never does, adrian mostly gets lonely
How we live in this existence, just being
English upbringing, background carribean

[3D]

It's the way that we ?bility?
Sharing a soliloquy
We cut the broken thread from flexibility
Mi chiamo 3D si sono Inglese
No sunshine in my life 'cause the way I deal is hazy
And everyday's a daisy 'cause I'm on my toes
While contemporaries of mine remaining comatose

[Tricky]

There's a looking glass she's looking through
She hated me, but then she loved me too
I'd lie not try so I lost faith
Then turn to her to keep the faith
She told me take an occupation or you lose your mind
And on a nine to five lemon, looking for the lime

[3D]

Box clever, watch your system come together
Crazy weather at the end of my tether

[Daddy G]

Massive in the area, murderer
Attack inna the area, murderer

[3D]

Some go softly softly round the habitat
Ratchet in the right hand
They got no one to stab it at
Take a walk billy, don't be a hero
Effort's on minimal though almost touch zero
Excommunicated from the brotherhood of man
To wander lonely as a puzzled anagram

Car paint blue, green, primer and zinc
Take it to extremities my purple and pink
I feel the colours fill my room beneath the patter of the rain
I can't stand the drops they're dripping down my windowpane
They wash away my shadow and don't even leave a spark upon my soul
They leave the rainbows in the dark

[Tricky]

Blues get big, massive are even larger
Save nuff space into the tricky tardis
We'd trawl what I saw from down in darren's hall
People laying their claim
In stormy weather it's rain

[3D]

But you're living on a see-saw

[Tricky]

I try to see more

[3D]

Somebody da-ditty, nobody
Walking on sunshine, but still we're treading water
The son of many reasons searching for the daughter
Seeking knowledge, not acknowledging the jetset
Silver papers of the sound within my budakon headset
The solar system watches in wisdom
The children dance as the moonlight kissed them

[Tricky]

To Massive attack Matt Black appear wearing beads
Two hours traveling so I wrote this on repeat
Always living fast, people getting jumpy
Where on ?gruggy? falls I do the walter crumpy
Microphones held close, crouching far apart
Take my piece of mind and sign my name across your heart


Great song. Great group. Great genre.

dont know why but i like these Queen- in the lap of the gods revisted

Its so easy but I cant do it
So risky but I gotta chance it
Its so funny theres nothing to laugh about
My money thats all you want to talk about
I can see what you want me to be
But Im no fool

No beginning theres no ending
Theres no meaning in my pretending
Believe me life goes on and on and on
Forgive me when I ask you where do I belong
You say I (you can do it) cant (you can do it
You can go and) set you free from me
But thats not true

Thunderclap Newman - Something in the Air


Call out the instigators
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

Lock up the streets and houses
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

Hand out the arms and ammo
We're going to blast our way through here
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together
Now

The most enlightening chorus in Rock bringing the best album (opinion) of all time to its climactic end


See Me
Feel Me
Touch Me
Heal Me

See Me
Feel Me
Touch Me

Listning to you, I get the music
Gazing at you, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinion
From you, I get the story

Listning to you, I get the music
Gazing at you, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinion
From you, I get the story

If I were a swan, I'd be gone.
If I were a train, I'd be late.
And if I were a good man,
I'd talk with you more often than I do.
When your body's tired, exercise your mind.

One of my favorite verses to any song is this one from Echoes:
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can


the way it's sung, the lyrics, the music...it's all great.

and then, more great lyrics from Pink Floyd, coming from one of their most underrated albums- Obscured By Clouds, and one of my favorite songs ever, Childhood's End:
you shout in your sleep
perhaps the price is just too steep
is your conscience at rest
if once put to the test
you awake with a start
to just the beating of your heart
just one man beneath the sky
just two ears just two eyes

you set sail across the sea
of long past thoughts and memories
childhood's end your fantasies
merge with harsh realities
and then as the sail is hoist
you find your eyes are growing moist
and all the fears never voiced
say you have to make the final choice

who are you and who am I
to say we know the reason why
some are born some men die
beneath one infinite sky
there'll be war there'll be peace
but everything one day will cease
all the iron turned to rust
all the proud men turned to dust
and so all things time will mend
so this song will end

Well you should see Polythene Pam
She's so good-looking but she looks like a man
Well you should see her in drag dressed in her polythene bag
Yes you should see Polythene Pam.
Yeah yeah yeah

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt
She's killer-diller when she's dressed to the hilt
She's the kind of a girl that makes The News of The World
Yes you could say she was attractively built.
Yeah yeah yeah.

She sees my good deeds
And she kisses me windy
I never worry
Now that is a lie

Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way


I love that part of the song.
Gonna Leave this town

Gonna make a whole lotta money

anyways:
off the top of my head

Time - Pink Floyd:

And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You miss the starting gun

All of Little Wing by Jimi

Catch Me Now Im falling - The kinks is also awesome

Fat old sun has some good lyrics as well.

And It's Only Rock n' Roll (But I Like It) - Rolling Stones:

If I could Stick, a pen in my heart
And spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy ya
Would it slide on by ya
Would it help to ease the pain

If i could win ya
If I could sing ya
A love song so divine
Would it be enough for your cheating heart
If I broke down and cried
If I cried.

Ah Crap, forgot to mention Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones.

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky

-Echoes, Pink Floyd

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
go down this road we've been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever

-High Hopes, Pink Floyd

He was the Playboy Type (he smoke a pipe)
His fav'rite phrase was "OUTA-SITE!"
He had an Irish Setter

It was a singles bar, a Tuesday night
The moon was dim, the band was tight
They did the bump together

What a splendid sight,(Ren-nen-nen-nen) her teeth were white
The drinks were cheap (it was Ladies Nite)
He was glad that he met her

She was an office girl ("My name is Betty")
Her fav'rite group was HELEN REDDY
(They discussed the weather)

-Honey Don't You Want a Man Like Me?, Frank Zappa

As well as most Bob Dylan/Neil Young songs.
Hunter/Garcia combo had some great lyrics.

I've got a lotta favourites. These just happen to be the ones that I've listened to recently.
