"Layin' It On The Line", Favorite Lines from Eighties Songs, Songs Beginning with D

The purpose of this page is really pretty simple, I'm just looking for people's favorite song lyrics, preferably 4 lines or less from a song. No, I won't list entire songs or mail people song lyrics (don't even ask, I won't respond). I'd like to list entire song lyrics to everyone's favorite songs, but that's a blatent copywrite violation, and I don't need any nasty letters in the mail, but a few lines from a song should be considered fair use. So feel free to let us all know what your favorite lines from an eighties song is.

I looked him right in the eye
And said good bye.
