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

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.

"Mad World" by Tears for Fears
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had

'Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very mad world

Blame it on the train,
But the boss is already there.
