I got so bored I wrote a personal ad,
It said go out with me, you'll have the worst time that you've ever had,
Sat by my mailbox as the weeks came and went,
I got my own reply,
I must have answered it by accident.
This is from Young and Stupid, by Parasites, and it has been about my favourite lyric for a decade, which is good work, Parasites. Lots of other lyrics are also about my favourite lyric, but they don't tend to stay that way for so long. 'You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you,' is perfect.
Ancient lyric joke: on hearing the Tom McRae line, 'Is there a difference between a shark and the ghost of a shark?' my first thought was that Tom McRae would not be my desert island lifeguard.
