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

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.

"Rain in the Summertime" by The Alarm
And I run ītil the breath tears my throat,
ītil the pain hits by my side
As if I ran fast enough
I could leave all the pain and the sadness behind

My boss was Mr. McGee
He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
'Cause I was a bit 2 leisurely

Last night my little angel came pumping on the floor

I got license for love
And if expired
Pray help from above."

Cherry ice cream smile,
I suppose it's very nice.
With a step to your left and a flick to the right,
You catch the mirror way out west.
You know you're something special and you look
like you're the best

"Rock Of Ages" by Def Leppard
Rise up, gather 'round
Rock this place to the ground

No serenade, no fire brigade, just pyromania

"Rockin' In The Free World" by Neil Young
I see a girl in the night, with a baby in her hands
Under an old street light, near a garbage can
Now she puts the kid away and she is going to get a hit
She hates her life and what she's done with it
There's one more kid that will never go to school
Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool

I have known this much longer than I've known you,
Long nets of white cloud my memory...

And a lack of real spice in your life
I said leave me alone
Because I'm alright

There is no historical precedent
To put the words in the mouth of the president
There's no such thing as a winnable war
