Default Your Favourite Lyrics

This is the place to post your favourite lyrics. No more explanation needed.*

---

* Mabye... you could add why you particularly like the respective lyrics. I wouldn't mind a few philosophical debates as well, but then I'm a bit mental.

Let's get started, but excuse me for a moment... I have to put some lard on the cat's boil. In the meantime, you can have some pie (don't forget to let me know if you want to have a slice without so much rat in it)...



... and enjoy a nice song...

A personal favourite. So many late 60s / early 70s songs have fantastic lyrics.

Have you seen my baby
On the avenue?
You know she's driving me crazy
With the funny things she do
I seen her with the milkman
Ridin' down the street
When you're through with my baby, milkman
Send her home to me


The original...
Randy Newman - Have You Seen My Baby (1970)



... and the excellent Flamin' Groovies cover version (1971).

Edgar Allan Poe, anyone? *

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back


The Rolling Stones - Paint It Black


* Replace 'cars' with 'carriages'.

What a good idea for a thread.
Whilst not quite the same
Screamin' Jay Hawkins' laugh in I Put A Spell On You always puts a shiver up my spine!!
I digress etc ....

Will have a think ....

I've always loved the first verse of this.

The song Dead by Dawn from Deicide's self titled debut album.


Book of the dead, pages bound in human flesh
Feasting the beast, from the blood the words were said
I am unseen, dreamt the sacred passage aloud
Trapped in a dream of the necronomicon


It then becomes demon like and unintelligible.


Apologies that it's not deep and meaningful or harks back to futilities in love. (Or perhaps it does )

I just like it. T'was the first death metal song i ever liked.

One of the best songs about Vietnam. The focus is on the personal effects of warfare.

Well I knew a guy in high school
Just an average, friendly guy
And he had himself a girlfriend
And you made them say goodbye

Now he's buried in the mud
Of a foreign jungle land
And his girl just sits and cries
She just doesn't understand


The Bob Seger System - 2 + 2 = ?

How to party, part I.

The radio is blastin'
Someone's knocking at the door
I'm lookin' at my girlfriend
She's passed out on the floor

I seen so many things
I ain't never seen before
I don't know what it is
somebody shut that door


Three Dog Night - Mama Told Me Not To Come (live)


And here's the original version - written by the great Randy Newman, and sung by the excellent Eric Burdon.

Hurt - Nine Inch Nails
"I wear this crown of shit,
Upon my liars chair,
Full of broken thoughts,
That I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feeling disappears
You are someone else,
But I am still right here"

Parody Song Title: "Obeseian Rhapsody"
Performed by The Barron Knights
Parody Written by: Chris Connelly/Barron Knights

Original Song Title: "Bohemian Rhapsody"
Original Performer: Queen


Is this your real wife
shes very fat you see
look at her corset
its filled to capacity

Mama you could kill a man
if you sat upon his head
he would very soon be dead
Mama youre so over weight
cos when you walk you leave it all behind

I see you stuffing cream cakes and biscuits
in your mush, in your mush oh where did that meingue go
marzipan and ice cream stuff it down like lightening
on a scale like a whale
on a scale like a whale
