    Everynow and then, an artist creates a song with one or more interesting lines. Everyone has got their favourite ones. Let’s share.


    I’ve got a whole selection of favourite song lines. I post this one now, because it’s the one that came to mind right at this moment. This song belongs to Aaron Neville of the Neville brothers, but the sound is better in this Don Johnson video.


    If you want something to play with
    Go and find yourself a toy

    Baby my time is too expensive
    And I’m not a little boy

    If you are serious
    Don’t play with my heart
    It makes me furious
    But if you want me to love you
    Then a baby I will, girl you know that I will

    Tell it like it is
    Don’t be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide
    But I know deep down inside me
    I believe you love me, forget your foolish pride

    Life is too short to have sorrow
    You may be here today and gone tomorrow
    You might as well get what you want
    So go on and live, baby go on and live

    Tell it like it is
    I’m nothing to play with
    Go and find yourself a toy
    But I… Tell it like it is
    My time is too expensive and I’m not your little boy


    Kalibattanya akayimba ko kanzijukizza lines zange zino;

    I don’t have a heart to hurt you,
    It’s the last thing I want to do
    But I don’t have a heart to love you
    Not the way that you’d want me to.


    It’s a nice way to end something that’s not happening.

    Talking about song lines, I hear this line in many Congolese songs;

    Bolingo yabomwana.

    Makes me think of the Congolese as people in the habit of just praising thieves. Not much different from online Radio Katwe. I mean why doesn’t someone call the police?
