So what are some of your favourite lyrics? Can be a song or poem, doesn't matter. Meaningful to you or just catchy words and phrases, it all goes. Here's a couple of mine:

Open your eyes
Look within
Are you satisfied
With the life you're living?
Exodus - Bob Marley

I can't help about the shape I'm in
I can't sing, I 'aint pretty and my legs are thin
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to.
Oh Well - Fleetwood Mac

What are some of yours?

Down Under
Is there someone you know
Who won't let you go?
They're pushing you under
And bleeding you slow
They don't want your time
They won't give you mine
Their hands in your pocket
And your heart's on the line
Was it something I said -OMD

Chillin by the poo!!
I'm like a head trip to listen to, cause I'm only giving you
Things you joke about with your friends inside your living room
The only difference is I got the balls to say it
In front of y'all and I don't gotta be false or sugarcoated at all
I just get on the mic and spit it
And whether you like to admit it [*ERR*] I just shit it
Better than ninety percent of you rappers out can
Then you wonder how can kids eat up these albums like Valiums
It's funny; 'cause at the rate I'm going when I'm thirty
I'll be the only person in the nursing home flirting
Pinching nurses asses when I'm jacking off with Jergens
And I'm jerking but this whole bag of Viagra isn't working
And every single person is a Slim Shady lurking
He could be working at Burger King, spitting on your onion rings
[*HACH*] Or in the parking lot, circling
Screaming "I don't give a fuck!"
With his windows down and his system up
So, will the real Shady please stand up?
And put one of those fingers on each hand up?
And be proud to be outta your mind and outta control
And one more time, loud as you can, how does it go?
Eminem - The Real Slim Shady

I have so many but the one that springs to mind at the moment is:

We'll do it all
On our own

We don't need
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

In the 36 Chambers
I would be here all day log if I had to post my favourite lyrics but I'll post a few.

Current favourite is from Eminem on Dr Dre's Medicine Man.

Ain't no one safe from, Non-belivers there ain't none
I even make the bitches I rape cum

Damn Em :eek:

Another is from Abdominal. Dj Format's Vicious Battle Raps.

"Doctor is it true when they say that he's as handsome as a deity"
Like a chiselled greek god, plus nimble like a tree frog
But with the strength of 10 men, who each possess the strength of ten men!
"In other words the strength of 100 men?"
Nurse, please dont interrupt me when
I'm in the midst of a descriptive homage to this folk legend
Rumour has it that he's bench-pressing
At least 400 pounds and that's with the left arm alone!
What about the right? Writing poems
Simultaneously, insane ya can see but that's the type of mc that we're
Dealing with here, highly creative annunciation impeccable
Delivery style versatile very flexible breath control unparalelled
In his line of work his rhymes will hurt these spineless jerks
Yeah they'll still find the time to flirt, with all kinds of skirts
"He should try a nurse" keep your mind on your work
Last one I'll post today

Andre 3000 on Kelis's Millionaire
Where the is cheese there are rats
Where ever there are rats there are cats
Where ever there are cats there are dogs
If you've got dogs, you got bitches
Bitches always out to put their paws on your riches
If you got riches, you got glitches
If you got glicthes in your life computer turn it off
And then reboot it, now you back on
Can't Just put the cap on the old bottle once you pot it, that will spoil it
Go on and drink it and enjoy
Or this one from way back when:

Eminem - Marshall Mathers

Slim Anus? You're damn right Slim Anus
I don't get fucked in mine like you two little flaming faggots

When I was young me and my mama had beef
Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face
Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool
with the big boys, breakin all the rules
I shed tears with my baby sister
Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
And even though we had different daddy's, the same drama
When things went wrong we'd blame mama
I reminisce on the stress I caused, it was hell
Huggin on my mama from a jail cell
And who'd think in elementary?
Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day
And runnin from the police, that's right
Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside
And even as a crack fiend, mama
You always was a black queen, mama
I finally understand
for a woman it ain't easy tryin to raise a man
You always was committed
A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it
There's no way I can pay you back
But the plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

E's refined, sublime, E makes you feel fine
Though very much maligned and misunderstood
But if you know 'Ezeer E's a real crowd pleaser
E's ever so good - E's Ebeneezer good.

The Shamen - Ebeneezer Goode.


To the tune of O Fortuna.

There are a lot, it depends of the moment , the first that I have in my mind are for Amon Amarth
"Amon Amarth"from Once Sent From The Golden Hall(1998)

A storm rolls in from the sea
Covering the land with black thunder clouds
Rain whips the ground at their feet
As they come ashore in this foreign land

Thunder brakes the silence
Of fivehundred men assembled ashore
Gazing through the misty rain
At the mountain not a mile away
So dark and silent it stands there
The mighty AMON AMARTH
Reaching for the cloudcloked skies
So grim and fearful in might

With the wind in their backs they start walking
Decisive men of the north
They strive through this darkened land
With only mount doom in their sight
The closer they get to the mountain
The clearer their eyes can see
A forest of one thousand spears awaiting
Awaiting the battle that will be

A cry of war emerges
Echoes over the field
Warriors run, like wolves up the sloaps
Boldley charging the enemy lines

With weapons so fearsome and sharp in their hands
And shields of oakwood and steel
They slit open stomachs and split skulls to the jaw
Intestants cover the field

The defenders are weak in this brutal war
The northmen have power and guts
A bloodshed like no one has seen here before
None can escape their cuts

Arrows with fire fly through the air
Touching houses and shields
The Vikings can feel victory is near
As the enemy headlessly flees

A gust of wind blows in from the north
Clearing the clouds away
As twilight falls and the stars come forth
And the seawolves return to the bay

Corpses lie scattered all over the field
For the ravens to eat as they please
The mountain is now left there behind
As they sail with the first morning breeze

Nas - Nazareth Savage

I had bad chicks that blow cum bubbles like bubblegum
Plus they ass lick, summer house be sippin' rum
Layin' lazy in the recliner, couple days
In my ashtray, smoke signals from the haze
I stick my finger through it, the ring of smoke broke
That symbolize weak guys, pop the strong link off
The infrastructure caves in, amazin'
I ain't have to read The Art of War to slay men
Serve niggaz, bird niggaz speakin' reckless
When their momma love the kid's records I made
You gutless, you don't know struggle
Throw a couple slugs at you, hell grabs you
Nail stabs a hand of the Nasirine
I carried the cross to help you afford that plasma screen
Gave you chumps a path to walk, hold my hand
I'ma guide you like the OG, but don't talk, don't get it confused
'Cause none'a y'all can fit in my shoes
Y'all made of chemicals, artificial actions
God'll forgive you bastards
Only if you repent to the Nazareth Savage
