Song lyrics that are clever....

Do you have a line in a song that just makes you think-how the heck did they think that line up? I love when that happens. My current line that I just love is from Train:

'You wear white and I'll wear out the words I love you'

That line just makes me smile.

    I love clever lyrics.

    Of course, now that you ask, I can't think of one!

    The only clever phrase I can think of is in spanish. I saw about 10 years ago on a truck driver's back window of his rig:

    Ella azul. Y yo a-su-lado.

    I cannot translate it to be as clever as it is in Spanish, but I love the phrase. And translated literally is totally nonsensical.

    That's my current favorite. I love lyrics, and have a bad memory, so can't spew other favorites at will. I think I have Sara Bareilles in my sig line right now.

    My eyes are green
    'cause I eat a lot of vegetables.
    It don't have nothing
    to do with your new friend.

    ---

    I'm young and I'm strong
    But I feel old and tired
    Overfired
    And I've been poked and stoked
    It's all smoke, there's no more fire
    Only desire
    For you, whoever you are

    ---

    Oh what a shame that your
    Pockets did bleed on St. Valentine's,
    And you sat in a chair thinking
    "Boy I'm such a Prince!"
    Well life's a train that goes
    From February on day by day,
    But its making a stop on April First.

    And you will believe in love
    And all that its supposed to be
    But just until the fish start to smell
    And you're struck down by a hammer

    ---

    Bag lady, you gonna hurt your back
    Dragging all them bags like that
    I guess nobody ever told you
    All you must hold on to
    Is you, is you, is you

    One day all them bags gonna get in your way...
    So, pack light

    You have to do it running, but you do everything that they ask you to
    'Cause you don't mind seeing yourself in a picture
    As long as you look far away, as long as you look removed.
    Showered and blue-blazared
    Fill yourself with quarters
    Showered and blue-blazared
    You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends

    Once I was climbing the garden wall

    Fell so hard I heard bells ring

    I love clever lyrics!

    " I fought the war, but the war won" from Metric's "Monster Hospital".

    Made me think how lots of times there is no real winner in a conflict - sometimes the conflict overtakes us and consumes us in hatred and illogical thinking, and the conflict is what really wins. There aren't just two sides - the nature of conflict itself is the third side and you have to be careful it doesn't win.

    If that makes any sense. :happy6:

    Nelly Furtado's 'Partys Just Begun' has various lines that I find clever:

    -I'm drinking spirits in the hopes that I will find myself one
    -I picked up the chalice of malice and drank till I was full

    It does. Metric, Stars and Broken Social Scene tend to have very clever lyrics.

    OMG, I *luuuuuuuurve* Fiona Apple! Awesome voice and she always had lyrics that made you go "hmmmm". I also agree with Naturalista on "Crash Into Me", that song is one of my fave memories from my freshman year of college. I started college having no f'in clue who Dave Matthews or his Band were, but the kids in my dorm blasted his music into the halls so much that I pretty much have that entire album permanently etched into my brain, LOL. Ahhhh, 1994.....:happy6:

    "Rise up, Fruit Loop lovers, sing out sweet & low
    With spoons held high, we bid our brother 'Cheerio'."

    It's from a song called "Breakfast" about the leader of a breakfast club that meets his untimely demise. The whole song is funny, but that line always cracks me up.
