My Favorite Song Lyric of the Year!

Now that the Grammy nominations are out, I figure it's the perfect time to share with you my pick for "Song Lyric of the Year." While this is not a category, it should be and I have little doubt this would be the winner.

It comes from the song "Nothin' On You" by B.O.B (featuring Bruno "Crazy Hair" Mars). While "Nothin' On You" may go on to win Record of the Year, I think this a far more prestigious honor.

Here is the stanza (if they still use that word) from which my favorite lyric comes from - see if you can guess which it is:

And you out and you ain't got nothing on
Baby you the whole package plus you pay your taxes
And you keep it real while them other stay plastic
You're my wonder women call me mr. fantastic
Stop.. now think about it

Figure it out? It's this one: "Baby you the whole package plus you pay your taxes"

I LOVE THIS LINE!! Why? Well, because it is most likely that he was trying to rhyme a word with package and decided on "taxes" (which doesn't actually rhyme, but that's not the point). I love this line because I like to think this is actually a quality he looks for in a woman. She's got to pay her taxes. B.O.B. ain't marrying any woman trying to rip off the government. She's the whole package, yeah, but on top of all of that - the body, the personality, etc. - she is fiscally responsible and that means a lot.

I mean sometimes there are only so many rhymes you can make, I get it, but this line is hilarious! So congrats B.O.B.!!!!
Second place goes to Ke$ha for "But we kick 'em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger" - Cause its the only time in the last 20 years someone has referenced Mick Jagger as a sex-symbol.
