Lyle Lovett and the Best Song Line Ever

The Boy was getting picked up from band practice last night.  On the radio was a Lyle Lovett song (She’s No Lady) and he asked who this was.  I said, “It’s Lyle Lovett, author of the best song line ever.”  He, of course, scoffed at that.  He is 14 and always right.

“What song?” said he.

“If I had a Boat,” said I.

“It does mention Kemo Sabe, which is cool,” said he.

“Yeah, but that’s not the best line,” said I.

“What is?” said he.

“Kiss my ass, I bought a boat, I’m going out to sea.”

That is the best single line in any song ever.  Ever.  Discuss amongst yourselves.  We’ll see what Mr. 14-year-old-know-it-all comes back with.
