5 Great Opening Lines to Songs
"There must be some kind of way outta here, said the joker to the thief"
"Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste. I've been around for a long, long year, stole many a man's soul and faith".
"When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me...Speaking words of wisdom, let it be."
"Some people call me the space cowboy...Yeah...Some call me the gangster of love.
Some people call me Maurice, 'Cause I speak of the pompatus of love".
"The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves. Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays".
