IMHO — The Top 5 Song Lyrics of All Time

“Get sick, get well
Hang around an ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin’ to sell”
– Bob Dylan (Subterranean Homesick Blues)

“Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose”
– Kris Kristofferson/Fred Foster (Me & Bobby McGee)

“Well, I stand up next to a mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise a little sand…”
– Jimi Hendrix (Voodoo Child)

“Five to one, baby, one in five
No one here gets out alive now
You get yours, baby, I’ll get mine
Gonna make it, baby, if we try”
– Jim Morrison (Five to One)

“Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows”
– Leonard Cohen (Everybody Knows)
