    Warren Zevon's "Warewolves of London" has taken out the much coveted "Greatest Opening Line of a Song" award with the following gem:

    "Saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walking through the streets of Soho in the rain, he was looking for a place called Lee Ho ****'s, going to get a big dish of beef chow mein"

  2. well I'd have to say Ween's It's gonna be a long night from their album quebec

    Heard that you are new in town
    someone said you party down
    well, later I'll be comin' round
    we'll rack 'em up and suck 'em down
    don't call your mother-don't call your priest
    don't call your doctor-call the police
    you bring the razor blade-I'll bring the speed
    Take off your coat-it's gonna be a long night
