With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue
Dissolve the nerves that've just begun

Having read the book.

You can even use my best cologne
Just don't be here in the morning when I wake up

brimstead, Saturday, 3 June 2017 22:27 (four years ago) link

Oh, oh I said, "I'm so happy I could die"
She said, "Drop dead, " then left with another guy

Or maybe:

'Cause you know you're the one and that that hasn't changed
Since you were nineteen and still in school waiting on a light
On the corner by sound exchange

Or maybe:

Now I guess I'll have to tell 'em
That I got no cerebellum

Or maybe:

I was twenty one years when I wrote this song
I'm twenty two now, but I won't be for long

Or maybe:

I don't like you, I just hate you
I'm gonna kick your ass, oh yeah! oh yeah!

flopson, Sunday, 4 June 2017 00:07 (four years ago) link

i probably didn't even say that right
and i really don't give a damn

reggie (qualmsley), Sunday, 4 June 2017 00:14 (four years ago) link

but if you study the logistics and heuristics of the mystics you will find that their minds rarely move in a line
so it's much more realistic to abandon such ballistics and resign to be trapped on a leaf in the vine

reggie (qualmsley), Sunday, 4 June 2017 00:20 (four years ago) link

When I saw you standing there, green eyes, black hairu p against the pink and purple wisteria

I'll make it sweet but short

flappy bird, Sunday, 4 June 2017 05:46 (four years ago) link

She hit town a rose in bloom
Smell the sweet, sweet perfume
The color faded and the petals died
Down in the city no one cried
And in the streets the garbage lies
Protected by a million flies
With roaches so big they got bones
They moved in and made themselves at home
I say nice boys, don't play rock 'n' roll
Nice boys, don't play rock 'n' roll
I'm not a nice boy!

Not from a canonically legendary song or anything, but:

We said “okay, we understand”
When backs were turned, we made plans

It's just my luck, I get hit by a car
While carrying a cake
Dripping cherries, onto the pavement
Bride and groom on my face
