🗣 Discussion thread: what's a song lyric that lives in your head rent free?

Yesterday I was listening to my playlist called drake wouldn’t treat me like this, which for some reason is the playlist I listen to when I really need to get work done. There was a moment when I was mumbling the lyrics to a song, word-for-word unconsciously, and I realized that I couldn’t even name the song off the top of my head. The song was “Furthest Thing”, from his 2013 studio album, Nothing Was The Same:

I can't help it, I can't help it

I was young and I was selfish

I made every woman feel like she was mine and no one else's
Now you hate me, stop pretending
Stop that fronting, I can't take it
Girl don't treat me like a stranger
Girl you know I seen ya naked

It’s funny to me how I can go months, years even, without listening to this song and still find the lyrics lodged back in the archives of my mind. How I feel like a kid who just witnessed a rabbit being pulled out of a hat when Drake rhymes “take it” with “naked.” Dammit, Aubrey.

What about you? What's a song lyric that lives in your head rent free?
