Waning lyrical

You know when you’re listening to the radio and you hear a line from a song and it strikes you somehow? I thought it would be fun to trawl back through 2004 and record twenty lines that did it for me. Some of these made me laugh, some I like to sing along to. Some have a resonance with how I felt / feel. Some I just liked and don’t know why. How many can you identify?

1. I can do it put your ass into it.

2. I can teach you but I have to charge.

3. Just as you started to make your big advance with the milkshake and that little doughnut in hand.

4. I can see everything here with my third eye like the blue in the sky

5. My heart was broken, I was not open to your suggestions, I had so many questions, That you just kissed away.

6. Why can’t the boys be the toys, That the girls want the boys to be, And why can’t the girls see the world, That the boys want the girls to see, yeah.

7. I messed my pants, When we flew over France.

8. Straight to the hotel, I’m cellabut so, boy,you gets no tell, Kiss,kiss and still you gets nowhere, Just two blue balls down in yo’ underwear, I play unfair, I’m a hot gal.

9. I’ve been dreaming of a time when the English are sick to death of Labour, and Tories.

10. Sunrise, sunrise, Looks like morning in your eyes.

11. Winter fruits and summer wine, Sweet perfume and columbine.

12. Can’t think of a better way, and that’s all I got to say. I love you, is that ok?

13. I saw this thing on ITV the other week, Said that if she played with her hair, she’s probably keen.

14. Satellite’s gone way up to Mars, Soon it’ll be filled with parkin’ cars.

15. Won´t you just tell Cincinnati, I´m gonna need your love, Don´t you give me your love.

16. My performance is easy, I am the god of romance, And in my confusion I have the right to reign.

17. Free! don’t think about being less than yourself.

18. I don’t mind spending everyday, Out on your corner in the pouring rain, Look for the girl with the broken smile, Ask her if she wants to stay awhile.

20. Guns don’t kill people, rappers do, From Bristol Zoo to B&Q.
