    She told me that her dad was loaded
    I said in that case, I'll have a rum and Coca-Cola.

    She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running like a watercolor in the rain - Al Stewart, Year of the Cat. He's the best lyricist ever.

    Despite Wilson Brother, these are still some of my favorite:

    I, I love the colorful clothes she wears
    And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
    I hear the sound of a gentle word
    On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air

    --------

    I walk along the street
    I look into your eyes
    How pleasant when we meet
    I'm there when you go home
    How many times before
    Could you tell I didn't care?
    When you turned your back on me
    I knew it lead nowhere
    You believe in youth
    The history of all truth
    A heart that's left at home
    Becomes a heart of stone

    You believe in truth
    The lies we told of youth
    A cause we call our own
    Beside an empty throne
    How many times before
    Could you tell I didn't care?
    When you reached out in your sleep
    And you knew I wasn't there
    My eyes are made of stone
    Just like your sordid home
    How many times before
    Did you leave my soul alone?

    There are so many great lyrics from this band it's hard to choose (even if the lyricist says he has nothing to say, unless he does). So here's an old one and a newer one.

    ---------------------
    I don't feel anything no more/This state of grace is consuming me
    I'm not grown up and I am not a boy/I feel no pain and I feel no joy
    Well I always thought We'd get along like a house on fire
    In those days when the sun was warm/I ran in the street where I was born
    ...
    The streets are so empty at this time of night/I'd rather walk on my own than fight
    In a world where I'd forgotten you/I found myself forgotten too
    That's the danger of believing books/and all the lies of those thieves and crooks
    We sing intellectual songs of love/from a stolen pen to a velvet glove.

    -------------------------------

    It's a hard way to come home
    You've got me on my knees
    The walls are tumbling down
    They're falling like the leaves

    The days turned into months and years
    I can't forget that you were here
    I feel your presence everywhere
    In the corner over there

    Turn your eyes from me
    It's time for me to go
    Across the hills and over the sea
    I want you more than you know

    It's a wild world out there
    And nobody gives a damn
    In cold blood we don't care
    And we don't want to understand

    I'm sitting here alone at night
    My sleepless eyes are open wide
    What do you want me to say
    What we had has gone away

    The sky is high the road is long
    Show me what I should have done
    What do you want me to do
    Take it all away from you

    Turn your eyes from me
    It's time for me to go
    Across the hills and over the sea
    I want you more than you know

    Turn your eyes from me
    It's time for me to go
    Across the hills and over the sea
    I want you more than you know

    Oh yeah, "I Got The News" by Steely Dan:

    Take it
    In your hand
    All the sirens
    And the band
    Get to bendin' my ear
    How
    Was I to know
    About the warm
    Soulful secret
    You been keepin' for years
    I got the news

    Slow down I'll tell you when
    I may never walk again

    Span-ish... kis-sin... see it... glist-en...

    The cleverest song about head ever.

    Broadway duchess, darlin if you only knew
    Half as much as, everybody thinks you do

    'The Mercy Seat' Originally by Nick Cave, later redone by Johnny Cash. Listen to it, amazing song.

    It all began when they took me from my home
    And put me on Death Row,
    A crime for which I am totally innocent, you know.

    I began to warm and chill
    To objects and their fields,
    A ragged cup, a twisted mop
    The face of Jesus in my soup
    Those sinister dinner deals
    The meal trolley's wicked wheels
    A hooked bone rising from my food
    And all things either good or ungood.

    And the mercy seat is waiting
    And I think my head is burning
    And in a way I'm yearning
    To be done with all this weighing of the truth.
    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
    And anyway I told the truth
    And I'm not afraid to die.

    I hear stories from the chamber
    Christ was born into a manger
    And like some ragged stranger
    He died upon the cross
    Might I say it seems so fitting in its way
    He was a carpenter by trade
    Or at least that's what I'm told

    My kill hand's tatooed E.V.I.L.
    Across it's brother's fist
    That filthy five!
    They did nothing to challenge or resist.

    In Heaven His throne is made of gold
    The ark of his Testament is stowed
    A throne from which I'm told
    All history does unfold.
    It's made of wood and wire
    And my body is on fire
    And God is never far away.

    Into the mercy seat I climb
    My head is shaved, my head is wired
    And like a moth that tries
    To enter the bright eye
    I go shuffling out of life
    Just to hide in death awhile
    And anyway I never lied.

    And the mercy seat is waiting
    And I think my head is burning
    And in a way I'm yearning
    To be done with all this weighing of the truth.
    An eye for an eye
    And a tooth for a tooth
    And anyway I told the truth
    And I'm not afraid to die.

    And the mercy seat is burning
    And I think my head is glowing
    And in a way I'm hoping
    To be done with all this twisting of the truth.
    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
    And anyway there was no proof
    And I'm not afraid to die.

    And the mercy seat is glowing
    And I think my head is smoking
    And in a way I'm hoping
    To be done with all these looks of disbelief.
    A life for a life and a truth for a truth
    And I've got nothing left to lose
    And I'm not afraid to die.

    And the mercy seat is smoking
    And I think my head is melting
    And in a way that's helping
    To be done with all this twisting of the truth.
    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
    And anyway I told the truth
    But I'm afraid I told a lie.

    Lady, you keep asking why he likes you. How come?
    Wonder why he wants more if he's just had some.
    Boys, she's got more to play with in the way of toys.
    Lady's eyes go off and on with a finger full of glue,
    Lips are drawn upon her face in come-to-me tattoo.
    Creamy suntan color that fades when she bathes.
    Paper dresses catch on fire and you lose her in the haze.
    Don't ever change lady, he likes you that way.
    Because he just had his hair done and he wants to use your wig,
    He's going off the drug thing cause his veins are getting big,
    He wants to sell his paintings but the market is slow.
    They're only paying him two grams now for a one-man abstract show.
    Don't ever change people even if you can.
    You are your own best toy to play with; remote control hands.
    Made for each other. Made in Japan.
    Woman with a greasy heart, automatic man.
    Don't ever change people. Your face will hit the fan.
    Don't ever change people even if you can.
    Don't change before the empire falls.
    You laugh so hard you crack the walls.

    There's a full moon out tonight
    And it's shining down on me
    And in that purest light
    Any fool could see

    That this highway is paved with sorrow
    And every mile is lined with pain
    And when the sun comes up tomorrow
    You'll be just as far away

    Now I hear her whisper soft and low
    Through every mile I run
    As I travel through this world of woe
    With a Bible and a gun

    If a man was made to suffer
    I'm a mighty man I know
    From one heartache to another
    I've been burnin' down this road

    I've got one eye on the mirror
    And one eye on the line
    The end keeps growin' nearer
    The past slips behind

    I don't mean to hurt nobody
    I don't mean to do no wrong
    But somethin' out there's got me
    And it's pulling me along

    Darkness is my shelter
    Emptiness my light
    And stranger, heaven help you
    If our paths cross tonight

    Grandpa pissed his pants again
    He don't give a damn
    Brother Billy has both guns drawn
    He ain't been right since Vietnam

    "Sweet home Alabama"
    Play that dead band's song
    Turn those speakers up full blast
    Play it all night long

    Daddy's doing Sister Sally
    Grandma's dying of cancer now
    The cattle all have brucellosis
    We'll get through somehow

    "Sweet home Alabama"
    Play that dead band's song
    Turn those speakers up full blast
    Play it all night long

    I'm going down to the Dew Drop Inn
    See if I can drink enough
    There ain't much to country living
    Sweat, piss, jizz and blood

    "Sweet home Alabama"
    Play that dead band's song
    Turn those speakers up full blast
    Play it all night long

    Oh my name it is nothin'
    My age it means less
    The country I come from
    Is called the Midwest
    I's taught and brought up there
    The laws to abide
    And that land that I live in
    Has God on its side.

    Oh the history books tell it
    They tell it so well
    The cavalries charged
    The Indians fell
    The cavalries charged
    The Indians died
    Oh the country was young
    With God on its side.

    Oh the Spanish-American
    War had its day
    And the Civil War too
    Was soon laid away
    And the names of the heroes
    I's made to memorize
    With guns in their hands
    And God on their side.

    Oh the First World War, boys
    It closed out its fate
    The reason for fighting
    I never got straight
    But I learned to accept it
    Accept it with pride
    For you don't count the dead
    When God's on your side.

    When the Second World War
    Came to an end
    We forgave the Germans
    And we were friends
    Though they murdered six million
    In the ovens they fried
    The Germans now too
    Have God on their side.

    I've learned to hate Russians
    All through my whole life
    If another war starts
    It's them we must fight
    To hate them and fear them
    To run and to hide
    And accept it all bravely
    With God on my side.

    But now we got weapons
    Of the chemical dust
    If fire them we're forced to
    Then fire them we must
    One push of the button
    And a shot the world wide
    And you never ask questions
    When God's on your side.

    In a many dark hour
    I've been thinkin' about this
    That Jesus Christ
    Was betrayed by a kiss
    But I can't think for you
    You'll have to decide
    Whether Judas Iscariot
    Had God on his side.

    So now as I'm leavin'
    I'm weary as Hell
    The confusion I'm feelin'
    Ain't no tongue can tell
    The words fill my head
    And fall to the floor
    If God's on our side
    He'll stop the next war.

    My time coming, any day, dont worry about me, no
    Been so long I felt this way, Im in no hurry, no
    Rainbows and down that highway where ocean breezes blow
    My time coming, voices saying they tell me where to go.

    Dont worry about me, nah nah nah, dont worry about me, no
    And Im in no hurry, nah nah nah, I know where to go.

    California, preaching on the burning shore
    California, Ill be knocking on the golden door
    Like an angel, standing in a shaft of light
    Rising up to paradise, I know Im gonna shine.

    My time coming, any day, dont worry about me, no
    Its gonna be just like they say, them voices tell me so
    Seems so long I felt this way and time sure passin slow
    Still I know I lead the way, they tell me where I go.

    Dont worry about me, no no no, dont worry about me, no
    And Im in no hurry, no no no, I know where to go.

    California, a prophet on the burning shore
    California, Ill be knocking on the golden door
    Like an angel, standing in a shaft of light
    Rising up to paradise, I know Im gonna shine.

    Youve all been asleep, you would not believe me
    Them voices tellin me, you will soon receive me
    Standin on the beach, the sea will part before me
    Fire wheel burning in the air!

    You will follow me and we will ride to glory, way up, the middle of
    The air!

    And Ill call down thunder and speak the same and my work fills the
    Sky with flame
    And might and glory gonna be my name and men gonna light my way.

    My time coming, any day, dont worry about me, no
    Its gonna be just like they say, them voices tell me so
    Seems so long I felt this way and time sure passin slow
    My time coming, any day, dont worry about me, no

    Dont worry about me, no no no, dont worry about me, no
    And Im in no hurry, no no no, dont worry about me, no.

    (Wipes Tear of Homesickness from his eyes)

    I've been walking the streets in the evening
    Racing through the human jungle at night
    I'm so confused my mind is indifferent
    Hey, I'm so weak won't somebody turn off the light

    Electricity runs through the video
    As I watch from this hole I call home
    All the stony's are dancin' to the radio
    And I got the world calling me up here tonight on the phone

    Chorus:
    I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
    Some girl to thrill me and then go away
    I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
    Some girl that knows the meaning of
    Hey hit the highway

    Well I'm not wiped out by this pool room life I'm living
    Gonna quit this job, go to school, or head back home
    Well, I'm not asking to be loved or be forgiven
    I just can't face shakin in this bedroom one more night alone
    I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
    I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
    I need a lover that won't drive me crazy
    Some girl that knows the meaning of
    Hey hit the highway
