Your fave lyric line

Recommended Posts

I got your picture hangin' on the wall

It can't see or come to me when I call your name

I realize it's just a picture in a frame....

Mmmm I just love that lyric. Wondered if you would share your favourite line or two of lyric ....

I'm gunna sing a song about a true story,

How do I know it's a true story?

Because it's about me, and I've got a very serious problem.

I can't dance.

Wooohoho, don't you know that I'can't dance,

Can't get myself together baby,

Don't you know that I can't dance.

I'll get my coat on the way out with Johnny!

I acctually woke up this morning and couldn't stop hearing:

"he talked a hole right thru your head... "

Probably one of the best/funniest line in a song...

Nice one Hippo - great taste.

another one springs to mind - hope I've got it right, jimmy conwell, too much....

"What started out to be such a good thing

Has taken my heart and replaced it with string

I'm smoking more but enjoying it less

I get a whole lot of sleep

But I don't get enough rest..."

I just love Clinton's lyrics and this was the start of a real purple patch for the bearded weirdo

I'm as happy as a monkey with a peanut machine since i found you

**Oh so true! Sam Dees is a genius in my book, "after all" is truly great also the lyrics to "i'm gonna give you just enough rope to hang yourself" is good..

Being the incurable romantic that I am, when Dena Barnes sings:

You dont know the suffering I go through,

I go weak at the knees. Must have been about 13 when i first heard that line, and it killed me stone dead then.

When it turned your knuckle green, gave you 14 karat gold

Gonna take some tranquillisers, gonna take a trip

Almeta Lattimore - These Memories

'When I go to bed, there you are in my dreams again,

and I just don't understand,

hey baby, they're driving me, driving me, oh they're driving me mad.

Oh baby these memories won't leave me alone.

And I think it's a shame, oh baby, cos without you I feel like I can't go on.

Oh I can't understand this feeling I have for you and I don't know what to do, cos these old memories of you...........'

If you don't know it and you want a spine-tingling 3+ minutes go listen to it on Soul Club.

Actually my 2 bestest ever favourites are:

When i'm walkin' down the street, i'm just another guy

No-one pays attention, everytime i'm passin' by

But when my baby kisses me, I feel like I am royalty..........

(Had to pick that one, it's our soppy song, awww)

Everytime I meet, someone we knew

It never fails, they always ask for you

Even though they know, we've said goodbye

I just tell them I don't think about you, and i'm much better off without you......

My favourite song ever!! make's me cry like a great big baby!!

Another one i really like the lyrics on is Brenda Jones masterpiece "big mistake"...

pretty much only good lyrics in it but :

"you look like your daddy now, funny, i always thought you looked like me somehow.. "

and

"seems i made a bad mistake on my wedding day, couldn't stand the strife of married life so i had you baby and the i went away.."

are sheer brilliance..

How about

Sammy Ambrose "This Diamond Ring"

Who wants to buy this diamond ring, she took it of her finger now it doesn't mean a thing, this diamond ring doesn't shine for me anymore.

This diamond ring doesn't mean what it meant before.

And

Sam Fletcher "I'd Think It Over Twice.

I'd think it over twice, I'd take some good advice, if I were you girl. you say you love him but tell me are you really sure.

And

Millie Jackson "House For Sale"

The bedroom is right this way with unlimited closet space....

AND.... Located at 1679 Gidwell Avenue,

Theres just something about "House For Sale"

From the first time I heard it many years ago, the vocal "break" in the middle of Scratchy by Travis Wamack has always done it for me!!!!

Paul r - chuckling here coz for 35 years I've been trying to figure what that line is in "Scratchy". My best guess is....

"Capital, please do it again, won't you ..."

Could be a mile off though! Any thoughts?
