Here's a collection of my favorite Eagles lines:

"Some rich man came and raped the land; nobody caught him.
Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus, people bought 'em."
Don Henley, The Last Resort

"She's one of a kind, sometimes hard to find, like a rainbow."
Randy Meisner, Too Many Hands

"There's just one thing I don't understand.
You say he's a liar, and he put out your fire,
how come you still got his gun in your hand?"
Don Henley, Victim of Love

"Well the townfolk call her the cheap one, and the gamblers call her Flo"
Glenn Frey, Out of Control

"You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash
but you might feel better if I gave you some cash;
the more I think about it old Billy was right,
let's kill all the lawyers; kill 'em tonight."
Don Henley, Get Over It

"Still his jacuzzi runneth over."
Glenn Frey & Don Henley, King of Hollywood

"What can you do when you're dreams come true, and it's not quite like you planned?"
Don Henley, After the Thrill is Gone

"Talk about a low-down bad refrigerator; you were just too cool for school."
Glenn Frey, James Dean

"I once knew a man, very talented guy;
he'd sing for the people, and people would cry."

Bernie Leadon, My Man

"I've been searchin' for the daughter of the Devil himself."
Don Henley, One of These Nights

"Time passes and you must move on;
half the distance takes you twice as long."
Glenn Frey, After the Thrill is Gone

"The autumn leaves have got you thinkin' about the first time that you fell.
You didn't love the boy too much, you just loved the boy too well."

Don Henley, Wasted Time

"Go down Bill Doolin don't you wonder why, sooner or later we all have to die;
sooner or later, that's a stone-cold fact: four men ride out and only three ride back."
Doolin-Dalton (Reprise)

"Maybe the time has drawn the faces I recall,
but things in this life change very slowly if they ever change at all."

Don Henley, The Sad Café

"Well let me tell you I got some news for you, and you'll soon find out it's true,
and then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself."
Glenn Frey, Already Gone

"You see it your way and I see it mine, but we both see it slippin' away."
Don Henley, Best of my Love
