A great Bond lyric

edited September 17 in Music Posts: 1,217
Throughout the history of the series there have been many great songs. But what about great lyrics? What's a line or two from a Bond song that speaks to you.

Arm yourself because no one else here will save you
The odds will betray you
And I will replace you
You can't deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you, are you willing to die?
The coldest blood runs through my veins
You know my name

    1. Without listening to the song again to confirm, I think TMWTGG is spot on.
    2. YOLT is pretty good; YKMN is another good one.

    1. Goldfinger probably

    2. Nobody Does It Better - the Gold standard when discussing Bond....in fact the quintessential definition of the man and the film encapsulates and demonstrates it very well

    Also 2. YKMN as well. Brilliant.

    I agree with those saying that YKMN has got brilliant lyrics. They all reflect the movie's plot without directly mentioning any plot characters/elements

    GF is the answer to both. Other great lyrics: We Have All the Time In the World and Diamonds Are Forever.
