what's you favorite song lyric?

post your fav lyric here

for me it's so hard to choose one of them

i listen to various genes

but the song i love all time is

Carpenters - Close To You

the lyric is sweet and romantic. right?

Why do birds suddenly appear

Every time you are near?

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky

Every time you walk by?

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

On the day that you were born

The angels got together

And decided to create a dream come true

So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold

And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town

Follow you all around.

Just like me, they long to be

Close to you.

I see trees of green........ red roses too

I see em bloom..... for me and for you

And I think to myself.... what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue..... clouds of white

Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights

And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow.....so pretty ..in the sky

Are also on the faces.....of people ..going by

I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do

Theyre really sayin......i love you.

I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow

Theyll learn much more.....than Ill never know

And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world

The colors of a rainbow.....so pretty ..in the sky

Are there on the faces.....of people ..going by

I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do

Theyre really sayin...*spoken*(I ....love....you).

I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow

*spoken*(you know their gonna learn

A whole lot more than Ill never know)

And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world

Yes I think to myself .......what a wonderful world.

Guess which song! ;)

I think the reason no one has replied to this post is that its nigh on impossible to issolate one song as a favorite.

On a day today level you have your favs of the current time - which you tend to hum a lot. Then there are the classic alltime song, but then there are so many gendres....

Todays fav song, which I've bugged everyone with at work today is

Amish Paradise by Weird Al Yankovic ( http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=GsfVw9xxoNY )

As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain

I take a look at my wife and realize she's very plain

But that's just perfect for an Amish like me

You know, I shun fancy things like electricity

At 4:30 in the morning I'm milkin' cows

Jebediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows... foolAmish Paradise lyrics

As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain

I take a look at my wife and realize she's very plain

But that's just perfect for an Amish like me

You know, I shun fancy things like electricity

At 4:30 in the morning I'm milkin' cows

Jebediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows... foolAmish Paradise lyrics

But that's just perfect for an Amish like me

You know, I shun fancy things like electricity

At 4:30 in the morning I'm milkin' cows

Jebediah feeds the chickens and Jacob plows... fool

And I've been milkin' and plowin' so long that

Even Ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone

I'm a man of the land, I'm into discipline

Got a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin

But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine

Then tonight we're gonna party like it's 1699

We been spending most our lives

Living in an Amish paradise

I've churned butter once or twice

Living in an Amish paradise

It's hard work and sacrifice

Living in an Amish paradise

We sell quilts at discount price

Living in an Amish paradise

And I've been milkin' and plowin' so long that

Even Ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone

I'm a man of the land, I'm into discipline

Got a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin

But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine

Then tonight we're gonna party like it's 1699

A local boy kicked me in the butt last week

I just smiled at him and turned the other cheek

I really don't care, in fact I wish him well

'Cause I'll be laughing my head off when he's burning in hell

But I ain't never punched a tourist even if he deserved it

An Amish with a 'tude? You know that's unheard of

I never wear buttons but I got a cool hat

And my homies agree, I really look good in black...fool

If you come to visit, you'll be bored to tears

We haven't even paid the phone bill in 300 years

But we ain't really quaint, so please don't point and stare

We're just technologically impaired

There's no phone, no lights, no motorcar

Not a single luxury

Like Robinson Caruso

It's as primitive as can be

We been spending most our lives

Living in an Amish paradise

We're just plain and simple guys

Living in an Amish paradise

There's no time for sin and vice

Living in an Amish paradise

We don't fight, we all play nice

Living in an Amish paradise

Hitchin' up the buggy, churnin' lots of butter

Raised a barn on Monday, soon I'll raise anoder

Think you're really righteous? Think you're pure in heart?

Well, I know I'm a million times as humble as thou art

I'm the pious guy the little Amlettes wanna be like

On my knees day and night scorin' points for the afterlife

So don't be vain and don't be whiny

Or else, my brother, I might have to get medieval on your heinie

We been spending most our lives

Living in an Amish paradise

We're all crazy Mennonites

Living in an Amish paradise

There's no cops or traffic lights

Living in an Amish paradise

But you'd probably think it bites

Living in an Amish paradise

Yesterdays fav song, which exceptionally buged people at work, was

Making love to a vampire with a monkey on my knee by Captain Beefheart ( http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=v37Dmaa-e1E - could not find a live version, although I have seen it performed live in 1981)

Making love to a vampire with a monkey on my knee

The pond shined dry like a ladies compact

Lilies leaped like flat green hearts with white hearts

Squirting yellow pollen...cocks...

Ferns ran like cool spades.. fossils. ..away from rocks

Bees echoed dark carbon hums that dashed in nothing

Gnats fucked my ears 'n nostrils

Hit my brain like hones 'n numbed t' nothing

Wings stuck on liquid bones

Making love to a vampire with a monkey on my knee

The moon poured hollow down my milky leg

Splashed still `n moved

The wind peed down the willows 'n pricked the needle vine

The monkey moved a fur shadow... its soot tail curled in twos

Its lips smiled needles.. its eyes rolled loose

Her throat broke open... glistened in the dew

Red berries dangled like a dream of rubies too

Snot muscles ran down her ivory chin 'n tooth within

A locket... a pin held fast to then, my love, my pocket deep within

'N senses dangled the chain that clasped me to her then

The messenger spoke the wind that blows between our time

I sensed you then 'n whispers spin 'n flow in silver dust

Around the pointed pin

Sent to nothing

God, please xxxx my mind for good

Making love to a vampire with a monkey on my knee

Oh xxxx that thing.. .fuck that poem...eyes crawl out with maggots

White cloth bones pile up light thrown blades

Rags `n skull.. scoops soil cracks.. .drain screams.. please

Take my hand 'n join me... too soon its clutches gleams

Making love to a vampire with a monkey on my knee

Death be damned... life

Pinpointing the fave classic all time best, might take much more time..........

Amish Paradise by Weird Al Yankovic is just a great song. And yes you are right, it's very hard to choose a fav song/lyric. :cute:

Yeah it's really hard to choose a fav song/lyric

But here is one of my favourites: Monsato Hayride by The Adolescents

Magic kingdom, right at Main

Shattered link, food chain

Tomorrowland in a plastic can

Monsanto: your house of the future

In a working class Alabama town

Childhood leukemia found

Mercury poisons the stream

Monsanto

Amber waves of greed

Poison the well

In greed we trust

Against the grain

Minnesota genocide

Birth defects, pesticide

Roundup spray, village green

Monsanto

Big business muscles flex

Blind eyed FDA inspects

Par for the course no one suspects

Monsanto: your house of the future

You'll seed your fields

How we tell you to

You'll feed your cows

What we sell to you

Inject growth hormone

Into the seed you sow

You'll eat and feed and seed

But never know

How far the tentacles reach

From the greed that feeds inside

How far the invasion sweeps

Monsanto

Grab your girl and climb aboard

Monsanto hayride

Plant the seed, breed the greed

Plant the seed Monsanto brings

Magic kingdom, right at Main

Shattered link, food chain

Tomorrowland in a plastic can

Monsanto

Close your eyes, ignore the lies

Bastard's creed no one denies

Systemic failure demands supply

Monsanto: your house of the future

You'll seal your fate

How we want you to

You'll feed your children

Our frankenfood

The future's now

Reap what we sow

Mutate the future

And we'll watch you grow
