    You can fall for chains of silver
    You can fall for chains of gold
    You can fall for pretty strangers
    And the promises they hold

    Dire Straits - Romeo & Juliet
    The Gods are just, and of our pleasant vices
    Make instruments to plague us

    Don't you judge a book just by the cover,
    unless you cover just another
    And blind acceptance is a sign,
    of stupid fools who stand in line.

    EMI - Sex Pistols.

    And he said: "Son, this world is rough
    And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough
    And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along.
    So I give ya that name and I said goodbye
    I knew you'd have to get tough or die
    And it's the name that helped to make you strong."

    He said: "Now you just fought one hell of a fight
    And I know you hate me, and you got the right
    To kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you do.
    But ya ought to thank me, before I die,
    For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in ya eye
    Cause I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you "Sue.'"

    Johnny Cash - Boy Named Sue.

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon God they made.
    And the sign flashed out it’s warning,
    In the words that it was forming.
    And the signs said, the words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls.
    And whisper’d in the sounds of silence.


    Last verse of 'Sounds of Silence' by Simon & Garfunkel
    The Gods are just, and of our pleasant vices
    Make instruments to plague us

    What would you think if I sang out of tune
    Would you stand up and walk out on me
    Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
    and I'll try not to sing out of key

    Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
    Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
    Mm, Gonna try with a little help from my friends

    What do I do when my love is away
    Does it worry you to be alone
    How do you feel by the end of the day
    Are you sad because you're on your own......

    With a little help from my friends - The Beatles

    Heard "Hey Man" by Eels a while back and added lines as my signature....
    Thank you all the ladies I had pleasure of meeting. Forever grateful for the memories
