What's your favorite lyric from a song?

Just curious what stays with people...

I just did a marathon cruise (or is that slog?) through this thread. Hey, cd318! Hats off for Jimmy Webb's MacArthur Park!


How 'bout some David Seville? "Ooo eee, ooh ahh ahh, ting tang walla-walla bing bang. Ooo eee, ooh ahh ahh, ting tang walla walla bing bang."



Oh yeah edcyn, that's a real winner. Surprised that nobody mentioned it sooner.

I may have already nominated one or more of these, but they're worth repeating:

- "No matter how I struggle and strive, I'll never get out of this world alive". Hank Williams didn't have to wait long; he died at only 29 years of age.

- "How can I miss you when you won't go away". Dan Hicks spoke for everyone who couldn't get rid of a bad spouse (ask me how I know ;-) .

- "God may forgive you, but I won't". Iris Dement is a genius.
