Best single line from a song

    Simple, really, quote some of your favourite single lines (or two) from songs. No whole songs or verses.

    Some that spring to mind straight away:

    Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me/No hope, no harm, just another false alarm.

    If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?

    And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time.

    There's a club if you'd like to go, you could meet somebody who really loves you/So you go, and you stand on your own, and you leave on your own, and you go home and you cry and you want to die.

    If you think you've got 100 years to mess around, you're wrong/Your time is here, your time is now, it's hero time.

    I'm in your life, might just be in your wife.

    You know your body's made to move, feel it in your guts/Rock and roll ain't worth a name if it don't make you strut (although strut is sometimes replaced by another word, which rhymes)

    If you squeeze my lizard, I'll put my snake on you.

    If you like to gamble, I'm your man/Win some, lose some, it's all the same to me.

    Please, remember me, fondly/I heard from someone you're still pretty.

    So I'm listening to the weather, to predict the coming day.

    Away you go......

    Well, I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.

    'Reality (is) the fantasy of youth'.

    Always loved that line but still cannot work out what it means or if it makes sense.

    (Uriah Heep, song is called 'Sympathy')

    You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run

    You were always weird
    But I never had to hold you

    So much of what was written by Jarvis Cocker

    Oh, what are you doing Sunday, baby?
    Would you like to come and meet me maybe?
    You can even bring your baby

    as a small example.

    You choose your leaders and place your trust
    As their lies wash you down and their promises rust
    You'll see kidney machines replaced by rockets and guns

    Does that count, or too much?

    I learned the truth at seventeen
    That love was meant for beauty queens
    And high school girls with clear skinned smiles
    Who married young and then retired

    OK, more than one line, but being 17 when this song came out, it resonated: the insecurities of youth.
