The thread about best opening line is still going strong here (Songs with the Greatest Opening Lines :: General Discussion - https://pipesmagazine.com/forums/threads/songs-with-the-greatest-opening-lines.83281/) . Feel free to add to it if you come across another great opening line, but this one is just for the best line in a song, whether it is funny or thoughtful. Just don't post the whole song. That gets confusing.

My absolute favorite line is by John Prine...

Roosters laying chickens... chickens laying eggs... farm machinery eating people's arms and legs...

Just cracks me up, ha ha!!!

Well, I've been in town for just about fifteen, minutes now
Oh baby, I feel so down, and I don't know why
I keep walking for miles
And see, people, they don't understand
Your girlfriends, they can't understand
Your grandsons, they won't understand
On top of this, I ain't ever gonna understand
