    saint of barges
    queen of nails
    sparkling drumsets
    and murders of crows

    metal teeth of
    carousels
    lighting cigars on
    electric chairs

    buildings are rooks
    nature's a vice
    rattle of diesels
    snakes eating their own tails

    pretty girl, milkin' a cow, oh yeah
    pretty girl, milkin' a cow, oh yeah
    pretty girl, milkin' a cow, oh yeah
    pretty girl, milkin' a cow, oh yeah

    Re: What are your favorite song lyrics?

    Someone mentioned Neil Finn's songwriting on another thread; he gets a co-writing credit on this Split Enz song (as does Noel Griggs), but the wicked lyrics most likely are big brother Tim Finn's, who is credited first and did the vocals:


    Dirty Creature come my way from the bottom of a big black lake
    Shuffles up to my window making sure I'm awake
    S'probably gonna pick my brain
    Got me in a vice-like grip
    He said one slip, your dead. Ha.
    Dirty Creature of habit
    Little horror here to stay
    Anyone in his right mind would tell it to go away
    but the river of dread runs deep
    full of unspeakable things
    The creature don't mess around
    I don't wanna mess with him

    I don't wanna sail, I don't wanna sail
    I don't wanna, I don't wanna sail tonight
    Dirty Creature's got me at a disadvantage from the inside.

    Tentacles on the brain keep me from falling asleep
    I'm rooted to the spot
    The beast don't know when to stop
    Sneaking up from behind
    Binds and gags my wits
    Dirty Creature got my head exactly where he wants it

    I don't wanna sail, I don't wanna sail,
    I don't wanna, I don't wanna sail tonight,
    Taniwha is waiting for me just below the surface so bright (Yeah)
    Even as we speak the Dirty Creature springs a nasty surprise.

    Dirty Creature knows my type found it in a magazine
    He's seen the look of fear before splattered all over the screen
    The animal magnet thug draws me out of myself
    I need a dragon-slayer who can save me from myself

    I don't wanna sail, I don't wanna sail,
    I don't wanna set sail for the middle of nowhere tonight
    Dirty Creature's got me at a disadvantage from the inside (Yeah)
    I don't wanna sail upon the waters of invention tonight

    Re: What are your favorite song lyrics?

    Two of my favourite pop songs:

    Jimmy Buffett - Margaritaville

    Nibblin' on sponge cake
    Watchin' the sun bake
    All of those tourists covered with oil
    Strummin' my six-string
    On my front porch swing
    Smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to boil

    Chorus:
    Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
    Searching for my lost shaker of salt
    Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
    But I know it's nobody's fault

    I don't know the reason
    I stayed here all season
    Nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo
    But it's a real beauty
    A Mexican cutie
    How it got here I haven't a clue

    Chorus:
    Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
    Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
    Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
    Now I think
    Hell, it could be my fault

    I blew out my flip-flop
    Stepped on a pop-top
    Cut my heel had to cruise on back home
    But there's booze in the blender
    And soon it will render
    That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

    Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
    Searching for my lost shaker of salt
    Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
    But I know it's my own damn fault
    Yes and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
    And I know it's my own damn fault.


    Michel Pagliaro - What the Hell I Got
    (French Canadian singer - this song came out in 1975 - its my all-time favourite pop song)

    Hey baby on my mind
    You're doin' something to me all the time
    Too much and always stoned
    I'm drinking baby, drinking all alone

    Don't know what the hell I got
    Whatever it is it's an awful lot
    Hey, I'm gonna loose control
    From my liver to my very soul
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Hey baby mind is blown
    Never ever want to answer the phone
    Time and time again I've tried
    But someone answers and I know he lies

    Don't know what the hell I got
    Whatever it is it's an awful lot
    Hey, I'm gonna loose control
    From my liver to my very soul

    I don't want to be lonely, no, no, no, no, no
    I don't want to be lonely, lonely without love

    Suitcases in my hand
    Packing baby, packing all I can
    Tunes rolling in my head
    Make me think of all the things you said

    Don't know what the hell I got
    Whatever it is it's an awful lot
    Hey, I'm gonna loose control
    From my liver to my very soul

    I don't want to be lonely, no, no, no, no, no
    I don't want to be lonely, lonely without love

    Don't know what the hell I got
    Whatever it is it's an awful lot
    Hey, I'm gonna loose control
    From my liver to my very soul

    I don't want to be lonely, no, no, no, no, no
    I don't want to be lonely, lonely without love

    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Without love
    Without love
    Hmmm, without love
    Yeah, yeah, without love
    Hmmm, without love

    Re: What are your favorite song lyrics?

    "BOB"" BY Alfred Yankovic

    Each line of this song is a palindrome (the same backwards and forwards) and is sung in a Bob Dylan style.


    I, man, am regal - a German am I
    Never odd or even
    If I had a hi-fi
    Madam, I'm Adam
    Too hot to hoot
    No lemons, no melon
    Too bad I hid a boot
    Lisa Bonet ate no basil
    Warsaw was raw
    Was it a car or a cat I saw?

    Rise to vote, sir
    Do geese see god?
    "Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod
    Rats live on no evil star
    Won't lovers revolt now?
    Race fast, safe car
    Pa's a sap
    Ma is as selfless as I am
    May a moody baby doom a yam?

    Ah, Satan sees Natasha
    No devil lived on
    Lonely Tylenol
    Not a banana baton
    No "x" in "Nixon"
    O, stone, be not so
    O Geronimo, no minor ego
    "Naomi," I moan
    "A Toyota's a Toyota"
    A dog, a panic in a pagoda

    Oh no! Don Ho!
    Nurse, I spy gypsies - run!
    Senile felines
    Now I see bees I won
    UFO tofu
    We panic in a pew
    Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo
    God! A red nugget! A fat egg under a dog!
    Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog
    .

    In other words, hold my hand
    In other words, baby kiss me

    Fill my heart with song
    Let me sing for ever more
    You are all I long for
    All I worship and adore

    In other words, please be true
    In other words, I love you

    another one of my favs

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

    (Chorus)
    We live on front porches and swing life away
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

    I've been here so long I think that its time to move
    The winter's so cold summer's over too soon
    Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow
    And I've got some friends some that I hardly know
    We've had some times I wouldn't trade for the world
    We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go

    (Chorus)
    We live on front porches and swing life away
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
    Until you hold my hand

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse
    And let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

    We live on front porches and swing life away
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

    take life away
    swing life away
    swing life away
    swing life away
