Rest in Peace Earl Scruggs, thanks for the music

I know everyone loves Foggy Mountain Breakdown, it is a great piece of music.  But my favorite will always be Pearl, Pearl, Pearl.  I challenge anyone to find a better line in any music genre than

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, come be my loving girl
Don't you marry Lester Flatt, He slicks his hair with possum fat
Change your name to Mrs. Earl Scruggs

next place?  easy, the next stanza by Scruggs,

Pearl, Pearl, Pearl, he's nutty as a squirrel
If you'll be Mrs. Scruggs, We'll live on kisses and hugs
Like Juliet and Romeo.

If you have never taken the time to listen to Pearl, Pearl, Pearl take the opportunity to now.
