    Whoa, this thread got pretty big! Thanks for all the contributions.

    Speaking of Pink Floyd - the Animals album is full of great lines. The last verse on the record is my favorite -

    Have you heard the news?
    The dogs are dead
    You better stay home and do as you're told
    Get out of the road if you want to grow old


    Followed by one of Gilmour's greatest moments. The chord changes on the end are so cool.

    They say that patriotism is the last refuge
    To which a scoundrel clings

    Steal a little and they throw you in jail
    Steal a lot and they make you king

    I have not seen may Little Feet lyrics, and I haven't listened to them too much lately but,

    I said Jaunita, my sweet chiquita, what are you up to?

    Geez....I have so many....I'll stick with the wonderful Canadian band, The Boomers from their awesome album; The Art Of Living.

    "All these things.....I know I should have said, but for some reason or another, I chose silence instead."

    Or Tom Waits; "Whistling past the graveyard, steppin' on a crack.....or "Romeo is bleeding, he winces now and then"......of, "Charlie I'm pregnant, living on 9th street, above a dirty bookstore.....or, "$29 dollars and an alligator purse.....

    So many good ones. Oh yeah, Rodney Crowell; "Life is messy...I feel like Elvis Pressley..

    Now the longest train that I ever saw
    It was 14 coaches long
    And the prettiest girl that I ever knew
    She was on that train and gone
