[QUOTE=scran]6. “Promise me son not to do the things I’ve done”

Kenny Rogers - what a star - different song but these are great lines...

'You picked the fine time to leave me, lucille
Four hungry children and a crop in the field
I’ve had some bad time
Live thru’ some sad times
But this time your hurtin wouldn’t heal
You picked the fine time to leave me, lucille.'

It is so awful its brilliant - genius.
