    'Fraid not. Dave Edmunds recorded the famous version... but Elvis wrote it.

    "Girls Talk" is an Elvis Costello song. Originally written during the sessions for Costello's 1980 album Get Happy!!, the song was first recorded by Dave Edmunds in 1979. Edmunds' version peaked at #4 on the UK Singles Chart and #12 in Ireland.

    in the end it took me a dictionary
    to find out the meaning of 'unrequited'
    while she was giving herself for free
    at a party to which i was never invited.

    "And there we where all in one place, a generation lost in space" Don Mclean in american pie on the "love generation".

    "I really don't know life at all" Joni Mitchell "from both sides know"

    "I was so much younger then, I'm older than that now" is also pretty good

    I like the bit in "Je t'aime, moi non plus" where it's not actually words.

    The preacher asked her
    And she said I do
    The preacher asked me
    And she said yes he does too

    I don't love you any less
    But I can't love you anymore

    Always though they sang "twofaced spinning head"?

    "She got Mercedes bends"" always struck me as funny for it's closeness to mercedes-benz

    Y'all wanna talk about guns like I ain't got none; what do you think.....I sold 'em all??

    Maybe not my most favorite line in music history, but certainly fun to announce during a conversation that you are not really involved in.

    It is also good to remind folks from time to time that they are not the king of carrot flowers!

    I'm a sucker for good lyrics and could do a hundred of these. Since the thread started with Bowie:

    "We live for just these 20 years, do we have to die for the 50 more." Bowie, "Young Americans"
