What is your favourite pop lyric? I was listening to 'The Who' today and I really like, "I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth."(Substitute)

From Neil Innes and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band's Urban Spaceman

I don't need pleasure
I don't feel pain
If you were to knock me down I'd just get up again

"So hold me Mom
In your long arms
In your petrochemical arms ...
Your military arms ...
In your arms.'

Laurie Anderson, 'O Superman'

Pulp and Blur have plenty of good lines. As do the Kinks. Can't go wrong with a bit of Lola, f'rex:

"Well I'm not the world's most physical guy, But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine"

The Smiths beginnings of This Charming Man

"Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate"

(Always sounds like a wonderful haiku, to me)

Some of my favourite lyrics are by the Libertines:

More gin in teacups
And leaves on the lawn
Violence in dole queues
And the pale thin girl
Behind the checkout

Time by Pink Floyd, from the legendary Dark Side of the Moon album

'So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught, or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time has gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say...'

I've loved this ever since I first heard it in 1978, and with every year that passes, it makes more and more sense.

Todd Rundgren's, Fade Away, although I prefer the Mummers' version.

In a hundred million years
when the planet disappears
You and I will stay
and watch the world fade away.

And in a million trillion years
when the stars all disappear
You and I will stay
and watch it all fade away.

To me the words "Fade Away" will always bring to mind the Stones and "Not Fade Away":-

I wanna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
I'm gonna love you night and day
Love is love and not fade away
Well love is love and not fade away
And my love is bigger than a Cadillac
I'll try to show it if you drive me back
