I've been making a list of my favorite lines from songs. I was going to wait until I had a longer list, but I thought I would go ahead and share some of them here tonight.
Reason #1: A list of any length would be mostly Billy Joel songs.
Reason #2: I am having a hard time coming up with anything resembling witty repartee for tonight.
The songs represented here cover a wide range. Some of them are meaningful and make me think of particular people. Others are just funny or poignant and I just like them.
From Julianne Hough's "Hello" -- "But if you're gonna keep fishing in a pool of shallow water
You can't give the fish all the blame."
From the song "Funny Honey" from Chicago -- "With just one more brain what a half-wit he'd be."
From Billy Joel's "Only the Good Die Young" -- "I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. The sinners are much more fun."
From Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's "Stand a Little Rain" -- "If we're ever gonna see a rainbow, we have to stand a little rain."
From Eagles' "Do Something" -- "Don't just stand there takin' up space / Why don't you do something? . . . Do something / Do something / Don't leave it up for someone else / Don't feel sorry for yourself / Why don't you do something?"
