Ian Dury's "Plaistow Patricia" has to have the best opening line, just not very Radio "friendly" or OTIB "friendly", so won't quote it!

I often feel like bursting into said line when our players have served up a load of tosh, or let in a late equaliser at the Gate.

I am a lineman for the county
And I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun for another overload

Listen to the girl as she takes on half the world

Son, I'm thirty, I only went with your mum 'cause she's dirty

I want it now. I want it now. Not the promises of what tomorrow brings. I need to live in dreams today.

My blood brother is an immigrant. A beautiful immigrant. My blood brother's Freddie Mercury. A Nigerian mother of three. He's made of bones, he's made of blood. He's made of flesh, he's made of love. He's made of you, he's made of me. Unity.

- Fire in my eyes like I've seen hell, I might walk in your house and spit on your couch, but I mean well

- I'm an old-school postmodern man, a Marxist, intellectual Waka Flocka fan

- There was one of the gang, who had Scalextric and because of that he thought he was better than you

- Still deprived of sleep, I'll give myself a high-five if I survive the week

- What tongueless ghost of sin crept through my curtains?

- Is it my imagination, or have I finally found something worth living for?

- My worlds were divided, flesh like handfuls of old newspaper

- I'll neck a mezcal slurring "I'm not your friend pal", if I mispronounced your name then thats how its said now

If we're going down that road, I give you the opening 2 lines from "I Zimbra" by The Talking Heads: "Gadji beri bimba clandridi, Lauli lonni cadori gadjam"

Actually used to have that on "The Name of this Band is Talking Heads" live album.  Don't remember those opening lyrics though, but was not a great lover of that track in comparison to a lot of TH stuff.

As my only contributions so far have consisted of 2 totally gibberish (Quantum Jump and Boney M) and one full of expletives, (Ian Dury) so its about time I put forward some more appropriate opening lines.  Here goes:-

You know your problem, you keep it all in.

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot (one of the very few songs that have exactly the same starting line as the final line).

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling, rolling into the night?

I've been in this town so long that back in the city I've been taken for lost and gone and unknown for a long, long time.

When the rain is blowing in your face, and the whole world is on your case.

People try to p-put us down, just because we g-get around ( is this the only first line with hyphens in it?)

I get no kick from champagne, mere alcohol it doesn't move me at all

I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore, if I tell you a joke, you've probably heard it before

Every breath you take

When you're weary, feeling small, when tears are in your eyes I will dry them all

Have you seen the old man in the closed down market, kicking up the papers with his worn out shoes

If a picture paints a thousand words, then why can't I paint you

I met her in a club down in old Soho where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Coca Cola

Her name was Lola , she was a showgirl, with feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there ( bit of a clever seque there!!)

The world is just a great big onion and pain and fear are the spices that make you cry

You could hear the hoofbeats pound as they raced across the ground 

Just a castaway, an island lost at sea, another lonely day, no one here but me

She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge
She studied sculpture at Saint Martin's college.
 

Oh, is this the way they say the future's meant to feel?
Or just twenty thousand people standing in a field?

Not an opening line, but I remember this from way back and it still makes me smile:

She wore a peasant blouse with nothing underneath
I said "Hi", she said, "Yeah, I guess I am"

It's poetry 

Had a family quiz where it was guess the song + singer from lyrics.

Watching my parents try to say; "See your girl in the park, that girl is a uckers, When the ting went quack-quack-quack" then trying to work out what it means and who could have sung it was gold.

Some great opening lines from the world of hip hop

 

"I work the pen to make the ink transform,

Any particular surface the pen lands on"

 

"Turning quick scribbles into sick riddles"

 

"Looking out the window like Malcolm

Just when I thought this culture was open they go and doubt him

**** so many towns, spit, I skip jewellery

Molotov cocktails on me like accessories"

 

"I ain't like y'all

I'm into weird ****

I'm in the back getting weird with my weird friends"

 

"Now let me get some action from the back section

We need body rockin' not perfection

Let your back bone flip but don't slip a disk

And let your spine unwind just take a risk"

From The Deli Song:-

Four in the morning. (what'll you have?) well, I'm in the mood for a corned beef on rye.
With a tomato and some coleslaw on the side.

I love Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen etc, but Dean Friedman took poetic song writing to a higher level!

Loved the way he had a tendency to write songs of conversation between people (and even rocking chairs!).  Also got into a bit of bother when he wanted to distribute cannabis seeds with his CD, didn't realise this until looking at his Wiki page.
