    Post your favorite lyric lines here.

    I'll start with:

    1) "Tried to warn you, about Chico and Daddy G. But I couldn't seem to get to you through the US Mail"

    "My Old School"
    Steely Dan




    2) "I hitched a ride with a vending machine repair man
    He says he's been down this road more than twice
    He was high on intellectualism
    I've never been there but the brochure looks nice"

    "Every Day Is A Winding Road"
    Sheryl Crow

    Philosophy, is a walk on a slippery rock, religion, is a smile on a dog.
    ~ Eddie Brickell

    Stop your trying to bruise my mind, I can do it on my own. Stop your trying to kill my time it's been my death since I was born. Can't remember, half the time, if I'm hiding or if I'm lost... but I'm on my way.
    ~Sound garden ?

    Believe me when I tell you that I got something for your punk ass.
    ~ not sure

    I was never really sure what my body was for, thats why I always leave it out on the floor.
    ~phish

    The entire song "woops" by blues travellers.

    It's no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy, cuz every now and then I kick the living sh*t out of me.

    And also from the same song

    Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk. I didn't mean to call you that.

    Apologies for the loose attributions.... I have lots of favorite lines. Don't always remember where they came from.

    "Woke up this morning with a wine glass in my hand. Whose wine? What wine? Where the H#!! did I dine?"
    -Frampton

    There's no 80's rock party line that compares.

    Of course these days I do a lot of P&W music so I could go on for days....

    "These are the scars of the life that I lead:
    The veins are from drink and the nose is from speed.
    A Stanley knife here, that had me well geed.
    Do I get cut and do I not bleed?"
