My nomination is: "Josephina, Don't you lean-a on the bell. And to Slider, the line "I speak of the Pompetus of Love" is one of the great nonsense lines of modern pop music, because it absolutely definitely sounds like it means something, something we all must know something about, but what it is, I can't quite tell you. There was a movie out a couple of years past, worth seeing, called "The Pompetus of Love." And it was Steve Miller, not J. Geils (Steve Miller being the much better pseudo blues man of his era.)
