Seasons don't fear the reaper. Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain. (We can be like they are) - Blue Oyster Cult - (Don't Fear) The Reaper. It's 3 lines, sorry...
Once I rose above the noise and confusion. Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion. I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high - Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son. And again 3 lines... I might have difficulty following rules.

When the last light warms the rocks and the rattlesnakes unfold
The mountain cats will come to drag away your bones
And rise with me forever across the silent sand
And the stars will be your eyes and the wind will be my hands

One time I accosted this ancient Belgian couple in a supermarket after trailing them and listening in on them through the whole store, and the man got so excited. 'skatte kom luister -sy praat oud duits!!! ' I don't remember what they were speaking but we had us a lekker little kuiertjie together anderkant die cash register.

It's actually pretty hilarious, from our point of view. At least for me. Love the similarities and the South-African twists to it, not to mention the random English words popping up. Q: are words like "love" and "cash register" and "train station" actually the standard/accepted language? Or are they more like a synonym for the 'Dutch'-ish equivalent?
