    Greatest ever song lyric?

    For me it has to be Bob Dylan's

    Ain't it just like the night to play tricks when you're trying to be so quiet.

    If I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor

    Pity the rest of the song gets on my wick

    But you'll think you've got a paper heart

    When she starts to tear it apart.

    My mother taught me this, at my insistence, when I was a child. (If only you'd make the same effort with your tables, she'd say!)

    Mine taught me this...

    Keep yer hand on yer ha'penny, cover it well with yer palm

    No-one ever listens to their mothers until it's too late.

    Darling, have a heart....
    Don't let one mistake keep us apart.

    (from Burt Bacharach and Hal David's 'A house is not a home')

    With the 'mistake' being left undefined, everyone can appreciate the sentiment.

    Anything by Billy Bragg, but particularly this

    I know the date

    I know the place where it happened

    Yet in my mind

    The scene I recall is imagined

    As we grow old I'm sure

    There will be moments that we will not forget

    But I would remember something

    Of the moment that we met

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

    Almost anything from Different Class by Pulp would be up there for me. Funny and heartbreaking. Fabulous songs.

    I wrote this song two hours before we met. Pulp - Something Changed

    And aren't you happy just to be alive? Anything's possible. Pulp - Dishes

    The trouble with your brother,
    he's always sleeping with your mother,
    and I know that your sister
    missed her time again this month.
    Pulp - Razzamatazz

    I never made the first team
    I just made the first team laugh,
    and she never came to the phone,
    she was always in the bath.

    How can you lie there and think of England when you don't even know who's in the team?

    Every night in my dreams
    I see you, I feel you,
    That is how I know you go on

    Far across the distance
    And spaces between us
    You have come to show you go on

    Near, far, wherever you are
    I believe that the heart does go on
    Once more you open the door
    And you're here in my heart
    And my heart will go on and on

    Love can touch us one time
    And last for a lifetime
    And never let go 'til we're gone

    Love was when I loved you
    One true time I hold to
    In my life we'll always go on

    Near, far, wherever you are
    I believe that the heart does go on
    Once more you open the door
    And you're here in my heart
    And my heart will go on and on

    You're here, there's nothing I fear,
    And I know that my heart will go on
    We'll stay forever this way
    You are safe in my heart
    And my heart will go on and on

    So beautiful...o_O

    One night I was layin' down
    I heard mama and papa talkin'
    I heard papa tell mama let that boy boogie-woogie
    It's in him and it got to come out
    And I felt so good
    Went on boogiein' just the same

    You call me from your room
    In your hotel
    All full of romance
    For someone that you met
    And tell me how sorry you were
    Leaving so soon
    And that you miss me sometimes
    Alone in your room
    Do I feel loved belt too

    You have no right
    To ask me how I feel
    You have no right
    To speak to me so kind
    I can't go on
    Just holding on to ties
    Now that we're living
    Separate lives

    Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin 'Separate Lives'
