Sounds like a lot of Country - I know it's an easy target, but they
do write some of the best titles and lines anywhere.

A few examples:
"She's actin' single, I'm drinkin' doubles""You're the reason our kids are
ugly, li'l darlin'"
and the country chorus to end all country choruses cos it contains
*all* the themes of country:
"Love, Death, Divorce, Prison, Alcohol, Rivers an' Traayyyyyyns"
