Great Rock 'n Roll Lines


#1

I've noticed a lot of musical threads and have read some great lyrics.

What are some of your favourite lines??

One that always pops into my mind is ancient REM from about 1983 or 84 from the song "Don't Go Back (to Rockville):

"At night I drink myself to sleep
and pre-tend I don't care that you're not here with me"

I'm sure that big ol' brain of Wolbarret's has on file PLENTY of lyrics encouraging us to "put it in her pooper!" :wink:

Kiss (Domino):

[i]"Every damn time I walk through that door, it's the same damn thing.

That bitch bends over, and I forget my name - ow!"[/i]

Springsteen, of course:

"Some guys, they give up livin'. Start dyin' little by little, piece by piece. Some guys come home, and wash up..and go racin' in the street."

NIN "Head Like a Hole"

Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve...

RUSH "Between The Wheels"

You know how that rabbit feels
Going under your speeding wheels
Bright images flashing by
Like windshields towards a fly
Frozen in the fatal climb
But the wheels of time
Just pass you by...

TOOL

"Maynard's Dick"

It's all an open center
Opens up and lets the wind lift him away
It doesn't have to feel water
It's just a place that feels right with him
Kinda like the way you're breathing
I kinda like the way you keep looking away
Would you like to glide on
Slide a mile six inches at a time on Maynard's dick

There's a shyness found in reason
Apprehensive influence swallow away
You seem to feel abysmal take it
then you're careful grace for sure
Kinda like the way you're breathing
Kinda like the way you keep looking away
Would you like to climb on
Climb on my six inches and go down on Maynard's dick

Took you out in the back of the toolshed
Put it right on top of your forehead
Took you out in the back of the toolshed
Now you know what you're fuckin with... Maynard's dick!

Ok, so it's a bit more than a line.....

ROFL. Somehow I'm completely unsurprised to see YOU be the one to put that one up.

Here's another you should like--

Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me put my love on the line
Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me cut your cake with my knife

AC/DC -- Let Me Put My Love Into You
