What's the Next Lyric

Recommended Posts

There's a lot of musical knowledge on this site so let's have some fun.  Someone names a lyric from a non-cryptic song, and someone else has to recite the next line.  The person who gets it right gets to name their lyric to be matched.  If no one gets it within 24hrs, that person wins...our admiration and starts the process over.  No googling and answering.  Google all you want, but don't answer.  No songs that your Uncle Ernie made up when he was drinking.  Let's say post 1965 and on an album that would still be recognized today.  

Let's start with a real bunny, 

"It was a new day yesterday"

I'm not quite sure how this is supposed to proceed....

 Isn't Trovao supposed to come up with the next mystery lyric?

 Although Linda Ronstadt did a cover version that may have slightly different lyrics, so we'll call it close enough!

I dated a hippy chick in the '81 timeframe and heard this song 100's of times and I always laughed on this line.  For me, Tom Waits was too much Tom Waits.  Did himself well and was great, but no range.  I like a little range.  Anyone ever get into Richard and Linda Thompson?  Shoot out the Lights.  Don't Surrender Your Love!

Someone feed one up, too tired.

...." 'Bout them raiding our pubs for no reason at all
Lining the customers up by the wall

Picking out people and knocking them down
Resisting arrest as they're kicked on the ground
Searching their houses and calling them queer
I don't believe that sort of thing happens here...."
