Not an entire song lyric, but just the bits that really standout and grab your attention. Or simply just ring true.

Here's some of my faves to illustrate:

"Watching the skirts you start to flirt, now you're in gear."
John Lennon; 'Good Morning'

"When I'm a-riding round the world
And I'm a-doing this and I'm a-doing that,
Trying to meet some girl."

Mick Jagger; 'Satisfaction'

"And in the end,
The love you make
Is equal to the love you take."

Paul McCartney; 'The End'

She turned to perfection once
But realised she'd only turned to pain
She ran through Divine Light, chemicals, Warhol, Scientology, her own sex
Before she turned away

He's your doctor and here's the bill
Doctor steel and here's the bill
He likes to steal so here's your bill

I've got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It's got a basket, a bell that rings and
Things to make it look good.
I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.

Bike: Pink Floyd.

I've posted this before in another thread, but it's just so darkly amusing:

Get out of the car
I'll slow down to 35 miles per hour
I'll soon see you fly
From my line of sight and then I'll close the door

Car Song - Stephen EvEns
