    Default Best closing lyrics to a song

    Just listening to Hendrix version of All along the watchtower here, always loved...

    "Outside in the cold distance
    A wild cat did growl
    Two riders were approaching
    And the wind began to howl"

    The music and Jimi's voice help enormously of course

    Got me thinking, what are some other great ones?

    I really do like "A Grand Don't Come for Free"
    and possible the best closing lyrics on the album are


    Lights are blinding my eyes

    What was I thinking about? Ah who cares, I'm mashed

    People pushing by, and walking off into the night

    Totally fucked, can't hardly fucking stand
    This is fucking amazing

    Does a sample count? Weekender by Flowered Up:

    I'll tell you what you can do with your high teeth and your job. You can take that mail and that franking machine and all that other rubbish I have to go about with and you can stuff 'em right up your arse!
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    Thanks to beansontoast

    Biko by Peter Gabriel.

    You can blow out a candle
    But you can't blow out a fire
    Once the flames begin to catch
    The wind will blow it higher
    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
    Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
    -The man is dead

    And the eyes of the world are
    watching now
    watching now

    Thanks to dibbler

    Marvin Gaye - Sexual Healing

    Often faded out when played publicly and only on the full version not the 'Radio Edit'.

    "Please don't procrastinate, it's not good to masturbate"
