edited because I put in an extra case between the genitive and dative singular !
What's your favourite line out of a song?
I had to know 500 lines by heart of Virgil's Aeneid
"Innocence will teach you what it feels like to be used" 17 Again by the Eurythmics/Annie Lennox
"If I pour your cup, that is friendship
If I add the milk, that is manners
If I stop there, claiming ignorance of taste--that is tea.
But if I measure the sugar to satisfy your expectant tongue, then that is love
Sitting untouched, and growing cold."
Cold Tea Blues, Cowboy Junkies
I took two years of Latin in college, but I'm really rusty, such that I remember the sound but am not sure which endings -em or -um go with some of these. I was pretty good when I took Latin....we were translating Virgil, those were the days....I liked Greek better because we were translating Palaephatus' Peri Apiston, which is a hilarious work.
quietly now, while i turn a page,
act one is over without costume change.
the principal would like to leave the stage,
the crowd don't understand.
"i was only joking"
So long, boy you can take my place
I've got my papers, I've got my pay
So pack my bags and I'll be on my way
To Yellow River
Put my gun down, the war is won
Fill my glass high, the time has come
I'm going back to the place that I love
Yellow River is in my mind and in my eyes
Yellow River is in my blood, it's the place I love
Got no time for explanations
Got no time to lose
Tomorrow night you'll find me sleeping underneath the moon
At Yellow River
Cannon fire lingers in my mind
I'm so glad that I'm still alive
And I've been gone for such a long time
From Yellow River
I remember the nights were cool
I can still see the water pool
And I remember the girl that I knew
From Yellow River
From "Imagine" by John Lennon
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...
"Cry tough" Jimi Jamison (Survivor)
"Don't you know there's always someone keeping score?"
worldtraveller was so disturbed by my "you light up my life" line from the Debbie Boone song he had to pm me and express
surprise/revulsion compared to my other fav song lines.
Great Catch WT....just a little sick oompa humor there!
thought I should clarify
