What I'm looking for here is "practical" advice on how to live your life from song lyrics.  "Timeless truths" that would perhaps not have occurred to you had you never listened to the song.  I'll get things started.

An important child-rearing tip that comes from the Elton John song "Rocket Man" is the fact that despite what you may have heard from your parents or grandparents, or any other adult, is the fact that Mars is not, in fact, the kind of place to raise your kids.  In fact, if you'll pardon my French, it could be accurately described as being, to use the vernacular "cold as hell".  And besides that, there is no one there to raise them if you did.

Another important life lesson taught by Sir Elton is the Saturday night is all right for fighting.  It's not great, it's certainly not an ideal night for fighting.  But if you must fight, there are worse days to do so than Saturday.

I learned that you shouldn't show negaive emotions, because the all seeing Saint Nicholous could came to town at any moment. He's checking his list, then re-checking it, to ascertain which children stand on which side of his polar moral stance.
BE GOOD.

I learned that no one (and I mean NO ONE) is getting fat except Mama Cass. That's very reassuring. Eat all the cheesecake you want!

I learnt that if you want to socialise, or "hang out" as the kids might say, it really is incumbent upon you to in the popular parlance "take her out" with "her" apparently being a bitter white powder by the name of cocaine.

Apparently she never tells an untruth, never tells an untruth, never tells an untruth, er cocaine that is.

From the Rolling Stones: It is impossible for one to receive everything that he desires.  I repeat, it is impossible for one to receive everything that he desires.  Once more, for emphasis, it is impossible for one to receive everyhting that he desires.  However, if he puts forth an effort, he will discover that he will come into ownership of certain neessities.

From the Beatles: She is infatuated with me, yeah, yeah, yeah.

From the Doors: If somebody should come up to me and ask me if I know the location of the nearest whiskey bar, I should not question him, because if he and his companions cannot discover the location of the whiskey bar, they will cease to exist.

  I learned that London Bridge is going to fall down and no one seems particularily interested in preventing this tragedy from happening.

Well, I've learned that he has feet down below his knees and he's going to hold me in his armchair, at which point I'll feel his disease. I haven't learned, however, who he is or which disease he carries.

I've also learned that I can clap my cares away, but I'm not sure if that's only down at Fraggle Rock.

I know you are but what am I

Well...

I know it sounds kind of odd but, simply by wearing my sunglasses at night I discovered that I could, that I could:

- Watch some one weave then breathe their story lines
- Keep track of the visions in my eyes
- Forget my name while one collects their claim
- See the light that's right before my eyes

Yes. I know its all great, but beware. Once you become the guy in the shades people are gonna want to

- Switch the blade on you
- Masquerade with you
- Have it made with you

oh no
I really do like pie.

13 years later and the Baha Men still haven't been able to solve the mystery of who released those dogs.

to avow a love of women with large posteriors is simply stating that one likes the usual cycle of night and day, since we know that it is they that cause the earth to rotate.
