Best Lines - keep it to one or two lines

I know, there are tons of them… but as they come to you…

I am just listening to Tom Waits / Chrystal Gayle One from the Heart.

From Picking up After You:

"Looks like you spent the night in a trench
And tell me, how long have you been combin’ your hair with a wrench"

Cracks me up every time…

Peace
Bruce in Philly

Tom McRae – an excerpt from “Draw Down The Stars”

Like a snake eating snake you confuse me
Who’s killer ? Who’s captive ? Who’s free ?
In a city that kills by constriction
Throw your streets around me and squeeze

For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been

I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
Now, how was I to know
That she was with the Russians, too?

Pink Floyd… "Time"

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day,
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way,
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your hometown,
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

They say I shot a man named Gray
And took his wife to Italy
She inherited a million bucks
And when she died it came to me
I can’t help it if I’m lucky

I got an opening statement,
I’d like to keep to myself.
