Best lyrics EVER

#1
Morning All,
Been reading 'Worst lyrics EVER' and thought this might compliment it.
Too many to chose from really but my starter for ten:-
"I get pissed, destroy". From one of the most influential bands of all time.
 
#2
Fink: Honesty

"We've had conversations
About the past
It's taken long enough to see
Your true colours
You've got so many baby
You're like a fcuking rainbow'
 
#3
Ah shadapp a ya face.
 
#4
Cranberries: Zombie

Another mother's breaking heart is taking over the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken
It's the same old thing since nineteen-sixteen
In your head in your head
Their still fighting
With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head in your head they are dying

Close the thread, this can't be topped.

A mouse lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam
A windmill with a mouse in and he wasn't grousin'
He sang every morning, "How lucky I am
Living in a windmill in old Amsterdam!"

I saw a mouse!
(Where?)
There on the stair!
(Where on the stair?)
Right there!
A little mouse with clogs on
Well I declare!
Going clip-clippety-clop on the stair
Oh yeah!

This mouse he got lonesome, he took him a wife
A windmill with mice in, it's hardly surprisin'
She sang every morning, "How lucky I am
Living in a windmill in old Amsterdam!"

I saw a mouse!
(Where?)
There on the stair!
(Where on the stair?)
Right there!
A little mouse with clogs on
Well I declare!
Going clip-clippety-clop on the stair
Oh yeah!

First they had triplets and then they had quins
A windmill with quins in, and triplets and twins in
They sang every morning: "How lucky we are
Living in a windmill in Amsterdam, ya!"

I saw a mouse!
(Where?)
There on the stair!
(Where on the stair?)
Right there!
A little mouse with clogs on
Well I declare!
Going clip-clippety-clop on the stair
Oh yeah!

The daughters got married and so did the sons
The windmill had Christ'nin's when no one was list'nin'
They all sang in chorus: "How lucky we am
Living in a windmill in Amsterdam!"

I saw a mouse!
(Where?)
There on the stair!
(Where on the stair?)
Right there!
A little mouse with clogs on
Well I declare!
Going clip-clippety-clop on the stair
Oh yeah!

A mouse lived in a windmill, so snug and so nice
There's nobody there now but a whole lot of mice

There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,

Then fix it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,

With what should I fix it, dear Liza, dear Liza,

With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,

But the straw is too long, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The straw is too long, dear Liza, too long.


Then cut it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then cut it dear Henry, dear Henry, cut it!


With what shall I cut it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what shall I cut it, dear Liza, with what?


With an axe, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With an axe, dear Henry, an axe.


But the axe is too dull, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The axe is too dull, dear Liza, too dull.


Then, sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then sharpen it dear Henry, dear Henry, sharpen it!


With what should I sharpen it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what should I sharpen, dear Liza, with what?


With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, a stone.


But the stone is too dry, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The stone is too dry, dear Liza, too dry.


Then wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then wet it dear Henry, dear Henry, wet it.


With what should I wet it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what should I wet it, dear Liza, with what?


With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, with water.

WTF is an Ax? Did you mean Axe? Feckin heathen! Just coz Mr Webster decided he didn't like some letters doesn't mean that he was right!

The line in the traditional song Bridget O'Malley that describes how a woman grows on you.

"It's the wonders of admiration your quiet face has taken,
And your beauty will haunt forever, I know"

You don't actually think I read it before I posted it do you :)

ELO Don`t bring me down......

You`re looking good,
Just like a snake in the grass

But I`m not bitter, nor twisted, no sir, not me, no way (those aren`t lyrics by the way, just the way I don`t feel!).

High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Folks in a town that was quite remote heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Lusty and clear from the goatherd´s throat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

O ho lay dee odl lee o, o ho lay dee odl ay
O ho lay dee odl lee o, lay dee odl lee o lay
A prince on the bridge of a castle moat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo

Men on a road with a load to tote heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo
Men in the midst of a table d´hote heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo

Men drinking beer with the foam afloat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

One little girl in a pale pink coat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
She yodeled…

Spitting Image's 'Chicken Song' made #1.

But Dire Straits did it better.

We're going on a holiday now
Gonna take a villa, a small chalet
On the Costa del Magnifico
Where the cost of living is so low
Yeah, we're gonna be so neat
Dance to the Eurobeat
Yeah, we're gonna be so cool
Twisting by the pool

Sitting in a small cafe now
Swing, swing, swinging to the cabaret
You want to see a movie, take in a show now
Meet new people at the disco
Yeah, we're gonna be so neat
Dance to the Eurobeat
Yeah, we're gonna be so cool
Twisting by the pool

And we can still get information
Reading all about inflation
And you're never gonna be out of reach
There's a call-box on the beach

Mmm, you're gonna look so cute
Sunglasses and a bathing suit
Be the baby of my dreams
Like the ladies in the magazines
Yeah, we're gonna be so neat
Dance to the Eurobeat
Yeah, we're gonna be so cool
Twisting by the pool

I'm a twisting fool
Just twisting, yeah, twisting
Twisting by the pool
