Great Lines in Weak Songs

Postby anthontherun » Fri Jan 15, 2016 5:27 am

Al has a fairly high batting average, but not every song is going to be a winner. But even tracks in the lower echelon of the catalog of the catalog have some redeeming moments. What are the great lines that make it worth sitting through some of those weaker songs?

Girls Just Want to Have Lunch - "She eats like she's got a hole in her neck, and I'm the one who always gets stuck with the check." This almost feels like the only attempt at an actual joke in this song.

She Drives Like Crazy - "Even hitchhikers just say no."

Speaking of Satan, I've always thought Nature Trail To Hell was weak, but the backwards "Satan eats Cheez Whiz" makes it.
hey there johnny, i hope you fry!

I will add on to I'm So Sick of You: You don't have an ounce of class, You're just one big pain in the neck

Don't Wear Those Shoes - "Use my razor to shave your legs, or eat crackers in bed!" and "stomp the poodle till it's flat"

-actually I don't find this song weak at all. I'm So Sick Of You is also not weak at all IMO.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!
