    Spitting in a wishing well
    Blown to hell
    Crash
    I'm the last splash
    I'll be your whatever you want
    The bong in this reggae song

    "I don't care if it rains or freezes, as long as I got my plastic jesus sittin' on the dashboard of my car..."

    Can anybody share with me the TRUE origin of this song??
    I've heard a number of remakes and songs based off it.

    I know it from my boy Luke!

    He sure plays a cool hand...........

    Today is is greatest
    Day I’ve ever known
    Don’t live for tomorrow
    Tomorrow’s much too long
    I’ll burn my eyes out....

    Looking back on when I
    Was a little nappy headed boy
    Then my only worry
    Was for Christmas what would be my toy
    Even though we sometimes
    Would not get a thing
    We were happy with the
    Joy the day would bring
    Sneaking out the back door
    To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine
    Greeted at the back door
    But thought I told you not to go outside
    Tryin' your best to bring the
    Water to your eyes
    Thinkin' it might stop her
    From woopin' your behind
    I wish those days could come back once more
    Why did those days ever have to go

    He was once a little green slab of clay.

    You should see what Gumby can do today.

    He can walk into any book, with his pony pal Pokey, too.

    If you've got a heart then Gumby's a part of you.

    Quoted from Buzz:

    Well I get up at seven, yeah
    And I go to work at nine
    I got no time for livin’
    Yes, I’m workin’ all the time
    It seems to me
    I could live my life
    A lot better than I think I am
    I guess that’s why they call me
    They call me the workin man

    I was waiting for some Rush lyrics, as most Peart lyrics stand on their own as damn good poetry.
    But that was from their first album, before he even joined the band!

    How about:

    If the future’s looking dark
    We’re the ones who have to shine
    If there’s no one in control
    We’re the ones who draw the line
    Though we live in trying times —
    We’re the ones who have to try
    Though we know that time has wings —
    We’re the ones who have to fly

    Or:

    A phosphorescent wave on a tropical sea is a cold fire
    The pattern of moonlight on the bedroom floor is a cold fire
    The flame at the heart of a pawnbroker's diamond is a cold fire
    The look in your eyes as you head for the door is a cold fire

    Or:

    They shoot without shame
    In the name of a piece of dirt
    For a change of accent
    Or the color of your shirt
    Better the pride that resides
    In a citizen of the world
    Than the pride that divides
    When a colorful rag is unfurled

    I could go on all night...

    Beautiful words for sure. Working man is a song that has been fortunately and unfortunately my life recently.

    I know every song
    Ain't gonna be a hit

    To some really weird shit

    Frank Zappa....

    I'm a moron 'n' this is my wife
    She's frosting a cake
    With a paper knife
    All what we got here's
    American made
    It's a little bit cheesey
    But it's nicely displayed
    Well we don't get excited when it
    Crumbles 'n' breaks
    We just get on the phone
    And call up some Flakes
    They rush on over
    'N' wreck it some more
    'N' we are so dumb
    They're linin' up at our door
    Well, the toilet went crazy
    Yesterday afternoon
    The plumber he says
    "Never flush a tampoon!"
    This great information
    Cost me half a week's pay
    And the toilet blew up
    Later on the next day ay-eee-ay
    Blew up the next day WOO-OOO

    Ramones, We’re a Happy Family

    We're a happy family, we're a happy family
    We're a happy family, me, mom and daddy
    We're a happy family, we're a happy family
    We're a happy family, me, mom and daddy

    Siting here in Queens
    Eating refried beans
    We're in all the magazines
    Gulpin' down Thorazines
    We ain't got no friends
    Our troubles never end
    No Christmas cards to send
    Daddy likes men

    Daddy's telling lies
    Baby's eating flies
    Mommy's on pills
    Baby's got the chills

    I'm friends with the President
    I'm friends with the Pope
    We're all making a fortune selling Daddy's dope

    The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
    Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely

    well ive been 'fraid of changin' 'cuz i built my life around you

    just a drop of water in an endless sea

    its not having what you want
    its wanting what youve got

    they got a name for the winners in the world
    i, i want a name when i lose

    well i dont know why i came here tonight
    i got the feeling that something aint right
    clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here i am
    stuck in the middle with you

    i used to roll the dice
    feel the fear in my enemys eyes

    was the fin on your back part of the deal? shark!

    maybe somethings wrong with you
    that makes you act the way you do

    youre going to reap just what you sow

    why do i find it hard to write the next line?
    oh i want the truth to be said.

    Never thought of that lyric with a comma....kinda changes the lyrical intent quite a bit!

    It's actually Brain Damage from The Dark Side of The Moon.

    Holy smoke that's right! I unconsciously tacked her favorite lyric to her favorite song. Thanks for the catch.

    'Cause the boys in the hood are always hard
    You come talkin' the trash, we'll pull your card
    Knowin' nothin' in life, but to be legit
    Don't quote me, boy, 'cause I ain't said shit

    Dire Straights - Money for Nothing. The whole song is about regular Joe's complaining about how some people got it easy.

    "Now look at them yo-yo's, that's the way you do it
    You play the guitar on the MTV
    That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
    Money for nothin' and your chicks for free"

    See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup
    Yeah buddy that's his own hair
    That little faggot got his own jet airplane
    That little faggot, he's a millionaire

    It would take big balls to say something like this in a popular song today.

    Maybe there’s a God above
    but all I ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

    "Anger he smiles towering in shiny metallic purple armor
    Queen Jealousy, envy waits behind him
    Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground
    Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted
    They quietly understand
    The once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready
    But wonder why the fight is on"

    "When the ebbing tide retreats
    Along the rocky shoreline
    It leaves a trail of tidal pools
    In a short-lived galaxy
    Each microcosmic planet
    A complete society
    A simple kind mirror
    To reflect upon our own
    All the busy little creatures
    Chasing out their destinies
    Living in their pools
    They soon forget about the sea"
