    I was thinking the same thing. Particularly the part about sitting on a cornflake.

    "Well, Shakespeare, he's in the alley
    With his pointed shoes and his bells,
    Speaking to some French girl,
    Who says she knows me well.
    And I would send a message
    To find out if she's talked,
    But the post office has been stolen
    And the mailbox is locked.
    Oh, Mama, can this really be the end,
    To be stuck inside of Mobile
    With the Memphis blues again."

    stuck in side of mobile with the Memphis blues again- Bob dylan

    the whole song is crazy. here is another bit:

    "Now the preacher looked so baffled
    When I asked him why he dressed
    With twenty pounds of headlines
    Stapled to his chest."

    every time you listen to it, I laugh that it doesn't make sense, but who cares ?

    "I'm turning Japanese
    I think I'm turning Japanese
    I really think so
    Turning Japanese
    I think I'm turning Japanese
    I really think so
    I'm turning Japanese
    I think I'm turning Japanese
    I really think so
    Turning Japanese
    I think I'm turning Japanese
    I really think so"

    If you're looking for just one line, some of them are exquisite:

    I'm down on my knees; I'm knee-deep in love.
    --Cindy Bullens, "Knee Deep in Love"

    Duh? How does that work?

    All right, well here I'm going to be contrary, because you actually could sit on a cornflake. But be an eggman? Can any of us aspire so high these days?

    Bah. Just constructed me a capitalist slur there. Ah well.

    I'm sure I have sat on a cornflake, but not deliberately, whilst waiting for a van; but there's still time yet.
    I'd be more concerned about being a walrus.

    Now there's a profession you just can't get into these days. Reminds me of a joke.

    An unemployed man applies to an ad for a job in a hard-done-by zoo. The zookeeper takes him behind the scenes and fits him out in a gorilla costume. "What's this?" the man asks. "The gorilla died last week," says the keeper. "And we can't afford a new one, so we have to make do."

    "So what am I supposed to do?" asks the man.

    "Just jump around, scratch yourself and act like an ape," says the keeper. "No one will be close enough to notice the difference."

    Well, the man doesn't feel too confident, but the stock market just went in the tank and the autoworkers aren't being bailed out, so he decides to do it. The next day dawns and when it does the man is sitting in the suit in the gorilla cage, feeling utterly stupid. But as more people come by, kids begin to point and shout excitedly, and by and by he starts to get into his new role. He dances about, scratches himself, swings on the tires and before long he has a delighted crowd around his enclosure, pointing and cheering. His blood is up, and he decides he needs to do something really awe-inspiring for a finish.

    In the cage to his right he spots a lion - a big, yellow-eyed beast with claws like talons. This is it, he thinks. He springs up on the tree, then swings across to the bars and clambers up them until he's tottering on the separation wall. The crowd oohs and aahs. So he begins dancing and springing back and forth, back and forth, and the crowd screams in excitement. He looks down and sees the lion leaning on the bars, looking hungrily up at him. He decides to tease it a bit, and starts screeching and jumping up and down, taunting the beast until it lets out a blood-curdling roar. The crowd shrieks in delight, and the man, fully into his character, leaps back and forth above the lion, which paces angrily.

    Suddenly, disaster strikes. As he extends himself just a hair too far, his foot slips and he overbalances. Waving his arms wildly - the crowd shrieks in terror now - he falls all the way into the lion enclosure, landing squarely on his back.

    Children cry. Women scream. And the man in the ape suit gibbers with terror as the lion approaches, screaming "For God's sake! Somebody help me! I'm not an ape! I'm a man in an ape suit! Someone call the zookeeper! Help! Help!"

    And the lion lopes straight up to him, plants two thick paws on his chest and pins him to the ground, wide, yellowing jaws opening in a snarl. And it says:

    "For crying out loud, man, cut it out! Do you want to blow the gig for everyone?"

    It's a shack. It has a tin roof. Doesn't it?

    If you're looking for random lines in lyrics, I think you've hit paydirt with the B-52s.
