From the splinter in the hand, to the thorn in the heart, to the shotgun to the head, you got no choice but to learn to glean solace from pain or youll end up cynical or dead.

 Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad
 From a worn-out picture that my mother'd had,
 And I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye.
 He was big and bent and gray and old,
 And I looked at him and my blood ran cold,
 And I said: "My name is 'Sue!' How do you do! Now you gonna die!"
 
 ...
 
 Boy Named Sue - Johnny Cash (written by Shel Silverstein)

And a few from my childhood that I used to sing along to, not knowing what they meant, that I laugh about now:
 
 You can't catch me 'cause the rabbit gone died...
 Aerosmith, Sweet Emotion
 
 
 He wear no shoe shine, he got toe jam football
 He got monkey finger, he shoot co-ca cola
 Beatles, Come Together
 
 And of course this whole song:
 
 WHITE RABBIT (G. Slick)
 
 One pill makes you larger
 And one pill makes you small,
 And the ones that mother gives you
 Don't do anything at all.
 Go ask Alice
 When she's ten feet tall.
 And if you go chasing rabbits
 And you know you're going to fall,
 Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
 Has given you the call.
 Call Alice
 When she was just small.
 When the men on the chessboard
 Get up and tell you where to go
 And you've just had some kind of mushroom
 And your mind is moving low.
 Go ask Alice
 I think she'll know.
 When logic and proportion
 Have fallen sloppy dead,
 And the White Knight is talking backwards
 And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
 Remember what the dormouse said:
 "Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head"

Good call Markie.  And The Queen is Dead is right up there for Big Mouth Strikes Again:
 
 Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
 when I said I'd like to
 smash every tooth in your head
 
 Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
 when I said by rights you should be
 bludgeoned in your bed
 
 And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
 now I know how Joan of Arc felt
 as the flames rose to her Roman nose
 and her Walkman started to melt
 
 
 And There is a Light that Never goes Out:
 
 And if a double-decker bus
 crashes in to us
 to die by your side
 is such a heavenly way to die
 and if a ten ton truck
 kills the both of us
 to die by your side
 well the pleasure, the privilege is mine
 
 Among the many others....

BTW, Smith, what Fall lyrics do you like the best?  And is The Real New Fall LP as good as everyone says?  I'm a little scared...

I'll give the Smiths credit for writing good songs, but the lyrics are a little too obvious for me.

Is it not that you have heard them too often? Plus they are 20 years old......

Repition and Bingo masters break out are highlights for me, both off of the early years.
 
 I have listened to the real new fall album a couple of times. If you like the fall you ought to like it. As Pollard already said....

I actually prefer Sparta FC but the lyrics are not as good:
 
 Come on I will show you how I will change
 When you give me something to slaughter
 Shepherd boy (Hey!)
 Everybody sing (Hey!)
 Better act quick (Hey!)
 
 Be my toy
 Come on have a bet
 We live on blood
 We are Sparta F.C.
 
 [background vocal by Elena] [1]
 
 I don't have a jack knife it went up the hill
 I don't know if i'll get it back
 But by hook or by crook I will
 Hey! Hey!
 
 Be my toy
 Come on have a bet
 We live on blood
 We are Sparta F.C.
 
 Hey! Hey!
 
 We have to pay for everything (Hey!)
 But some things are for free (Hey!)
 We live on blood (Hey!)
 We are Sparta F.C. (Hey!)
 English Chelsea fan this is your last game (Hey!)
 We're not Galatasary We're Sparta F.C. (Hey!)
 
 [background vocal by Elena] [1]
 
 And take your fleecy jumper you won't need it anymore
 It is in the car boot moving away
 'Cause where you are going clothes won't help
 Stay at home with TV set
 
 Be my toy
 Come on have a bet
 We live on blood
 We are Sparta F.C.
 
 Cheap English man in the paper shop
 You mug old women in your bobble hat
 Better go spot a place to rest
 No more ground boutique at match in Chelsea
 We are Sparta F.C.
 
 Come on have a bet
 We live on blood
 We are Sparta F.C.
 
 Hey! Hey!
 
 Shepherd boy (Hey!)
 Everybody sing (Hey!)
 Better act quick (Hey!)
 Be my toy (Hey!)
 Come on have a bet (Hey!)
 So I can win (Hey!)
 This is not a poem (Hey!)
 For the bin (Hey!)
 I don't have a jack knife (Hey!)
 It went up the hill (Hey!)
 I don't know if I'll get it back (Hey!)
 By hook or crook I will (Hey!)
 English Chelsea fan (Hey!)
 This is your last game (Hey!)
 We're not Galatasary (Hey!)
 We're Sparta F.C. (Hey!)
 
 Sparta!

I only listened to Torino twice, but I like Va Va Voom Cinerama much more.  Sure, the songs are simpler and poppier, but I think that's what they were best at.  I have a weird and anal "thing" towards production, and that album had that glossy-radio sound that bugs me.  It's hard to explain.  But Mark, you should give me a break b/c at least I LOVE Gedge... It's better to disagree about his records than talk about a pretentious "indie-rock" band like Bright Eyes or something... I know you'll kill me if you like them, but boy, they really irk me.

I think it was the English majors in college that ruined The Smiths for me.  In high school I liked them fine.
