What is the most recognizable lyric line ever?

Recommended Posts

MUSICAL INTERLUDE

Weeeelllll, woke up this morning with a wine glass in my hand.

Whose wine? What wine? Where the hell did I dine?

Must have been a dream I don't believe where I've been.

Come on, let's do it again.

Do you...you, feel like I do?

How'd ya feel?

Do you...you, feel like I do?

My friend got busted, just the other day.

They said,"Don't walk, don't walk, don't walk away."

Drove into a taxi, bent the boot, hid the bag.

Had to play some music, otherwise he'd crash

Do you...you, feel like I do?

How'd ya feel?

Do you...you, feel like I...

[1st guitar solo]

Do you...you, feel like I do?

Yes ya do.

Do you...you, feel like I do?

Champagne for breakfast and a Sherman in my hand.

Bleach coat, bleach tails, never fails.

Must have been a dream I don't believe where I've been.

Come on, let's do it again.

Do you...you, feel like I do?

How'd ya feel?

Do you...you, feel like I...

[keyboard solo]

"Bob Mayo, on the keyboards. Bob Mayo"

"Twinkle, twinkle, li'l star"

Should have a place as being one of the most recognizable lyrics of all-time.

I think. ;)

I've always thought that the most recognizable lyric is the one most of us heard as an infant cradled in our mother's safe arms.

Though it was usually hummed, some talented mothers actually sang the words gleefully to their newborn child . . . the song was written by a German composer, Johannes Brahms and it went beautifully... some may not know the words but I'm certain many know the tune. like this

Guten Abend, gute Nacht, mit Rosen bedacht,

Mit Näglein besteckt, schlüpf unter die Deck!'

Morgen früh, wenn Gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt

Morgen früh, wenn Gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt

Guten Abend, gute Nacht, von Englein bewacht

Die zeigen im Traum, dir Christkindleins Baum

Schlaf nun selig und süß, schau im Traum's Paradies

Schlaf nun selig und süß, schau im Traum's Paradies

English translation: (loose)

Lullaby and good night

In the sky stars are bright

Close your eyes

Start to yawn

Pleasant dreams 'til the dawn

Close your eyes

Start to rest

Lay your head on my chest

Sleepy eyes

Now you'll rest

May your slumber be blessed. . .

Speaking of "safe and secure," how about this lullaby that sounds sinister if you study the lyrics!

"Rock A Bye Baby"

Rock-a-bye baby, in the tree top

When the wind blows, the cradle will rock

When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall

And down will come baby, cradle and all

I can see/hear the child welfare folk and police headed your way with determined intent...

"there must be some way outta here, said the joker to the thief"

"welcome to the jungle, we got fun and games"

"money, its a crime"

"groung control to mjr tom"

"every breath you take, every move you make"

A-Wop-bop-a-loo-lop a-lop-bam-boo

Tutti Frutti, all over rootie,.....

A-wop-bop-a-loo-lop a-lop bam boo

Little anecdote about that not being the most recognizable lyric:

We were at the yearly festivities in Ghent, where I go to uni and there was a place where they played rock'n roll and swing music. I love this kind of music so I was doin' a little dance, waiting for a smash hit to go crazy :D

So the DJ started the "A-Wop-bop-a-loo-lop a-lop-bam-boo" and I was like woohoo :happybanana:

My friends looked at me like I've finally gone completely mad and my gf said: "do you know that song?

and I said: "what? of course I do!" and I dragged her to the dance floor and we danced like never before. :shades:
