I might think of a different favourite line from a song, but the one that comes to my mind just now is from "The Boys of Barr na Sráide", especially the second half of :
We jumped for joy beneath the sky;
Life knew no print or plan ...

EVERY line in Tom Waits' Heart Attack and Vine but especially:

Don't you know there ain't no devil there's just God when he's drunk?

And (another chuckle):

See that little Jersey girl in the see through top,
Over by the pedal pushers suckin on a soda pop.
I bet she's still a virgin but it's only twenty-five to nine.
You can see a million of them on Heart Attack and Vine.



Come to think if it, pretty much every line from the pens of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits; and, most of Paul Simon's.
