    I’ve been on tenterhooks ending in dirty looks,
    list’ning to the Muzak, thinking ’bout this ‘n’ that.
    She said that’s that.I don’t wanna chitter-chat.
    Turn it down a little bit or turn it down flat.

    Nice girls not one with a defect,
    cellophane shrink-wrapped, so correct.
    Red dogs under illegal legs.
    She looks so good that he gets down and begs.

    I shake my head and shiver
    They smile and they stab my back as they shake my hand
    Send out an S.O.S please
    Come quickly
    I’m marooned in Monkeyland

    Another favourite opening of mine is, imagine boots marching……

    Serious man, your f*cking Missus is nuts. My Missus is nuts ‘n’ all. She rings me at least 40 times a day… serious.

    Leaning in your corner like a candidate for wax,
    sidewalk social scientist, don’t get no satisfaction
    from your cigarette, it’s ten to ten, time is running out,
    lock up all your memories, get out of here, you know that we can run.

    In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey

    Hell yes – “Kill the headlights and put it in neutral…”

    I love the start of Public Enemy’s Louder Than A Bomb:

    This style seems wild
    Wait before you treat me like a stepchild

    Alright Chuck, I’ll wait.

    Pick any Springsteen track.

    And an HMHB one with a cycling reference:

    When I need you
    You’re only ever twenty-eight away
    With a tailwind
    I’m on Shimano Ultegra now, ain’t you heard?

    From: Half Man Half Biscuit: Excavating Rita – lyrics

    This one from Curl of the Burl by Mastodon appealed to me recently:

    I don’t believe in an interventionist God
    But I know, darling, that you do
    But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
    Not to intervene when it came to you
    Not to touch a hair on your head
    To leave you as you are
    And if He felt He had to direct you
    Then direct you into my arms

    NIck Cave, Into My Arms

    “Don’t ask me why

    Of Fairfax, California
    And I saw this flyer hangin’
    On a telephone pole, and it said

    You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar when I met you

    or

    The Pope says to the atheist, in Gods name I do swear
    You’re searching blindly in the dark for something that ain’t there
    The atheist says to the Pope there ain’t no gettin’ ’round it
    You too were searching in the dark for nothing…but you found it

    or

    The object of my affection
    Walked off in the other direction

    Early one mornin’ while makin’ the rounds
    I took a shot of cocaine and shot my woman down
    I went right home and I went to bed
    I stuck that lovin’ forty-four beneath my head.
