I could fill pages with nothing but Morrissey lyrics...
I've had my face dragged in fifteen miles of shit, and I do not, I do not, I do not like it.
So I broke into the palace with a sponge and a rusty spanner... she said I know you and you can not sing... I said that's nothing you should hear me play piano.
Oh yeah, two of my favourite Morrissey lines. He has to be the king of the one liner, but Nick Cave tells a story:
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds; Darker With The Day
And in my best shoes I started falling forward down the street
I stopped at a church and jostled through the crowd
And love followed just behind me, panting at my feet
As the steeple tore the stomach from a lonely little cloud
Back on the street I saw a great big smiling sun
... Amateurs, dilettantes, hacks, cowboys, clones
... With their building blocks and their tiny plastic phones
... I smell smoke, see little fires bursting on the lawns
People carry on regardless, listening to their handshttp://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/thepassi ... theday.htm
