Best lines in a song

There has been a long-running thread here of 'Best quotes' but maybe it would be interesting to find out folks' favorite lines from songs. To keep it on some sort of track, let's have a few ground rules.

- Attribution is required, who sang it (or wrote it) and where can we hear it?
- Shorter is better, four lines maximum, a verse. These should be words of wisdom that can be summoned for inspiration in social emergencies.
- If you're an opera fan, you're welcome to post in Italian, just don't expect many high fives from the monolingual among us.

I'll throw out a couple for starters:

When you're rockin' and a rollin' you can't hear your momma call.
Little Richard - Good Golly, Miss Molly

All I want in this life of mine is some good clean fun.
All I want in this life and time is some hit and run.
Little Feat - Fat Man in the Bathtub
"No matter if your born to play the king or pawn
for the line is thinly drawn tween joy and sorrow.
And so my fantasy becomes reality
and I must be what I must be and face tommorrow"

Simon and Garfunkle "Flowers Never Bend"
"Hey, you! Don't tell me there's no hope at all. Together we stand. Divided we fall."
Hey You, Pink Floyd
Maybe life is just put on for show
Oh but it's the only show in town
And it don't cost a nickel to get in
Oh but you'll pay dear to hang around

"The Only Show In Town" by Jesse Winchester
Let The Rough Side Drag (1976)
She came onto him like a slow-moving cold front.
His beer was warmer than the look in her eyes.

"Icy Blue Hear" by John Hiatt
"Don't you try the Queen of Diamonds boy, she beat you if she's able; you know the Queen of Hearts is always your best bet"
