I don't know if it has been mentioned, but I love the "Thanks for sweet fuck all" in NW3. I think it's another song too. Sea Shanty? I'm too lazy to look it up. But it's a great line. Or in the same song "Never did nobody wrong, never turned a decent wage."
IN MANHATTAN'S DESERT TWILIGHT, IN THE DEATH OF AFTERNOON, WE STEPPED HAND IN HAND ON BROADWAY, LIKE THE FIRST MEN ON THE MOON, AND A BLACKBIRD BROKE THE SILENCE, AND HE WHISTLED IT SO SWEET, AND IN BRENDAN BEHAN'S FOOTSTEPS, I DANCED UP AND DOWN THE STREET.
Recently I 're-stepped' the lyrics of the whole song in NYC, tipping my hat to Mr Cohen and dancing up and down the street, to the bewilderment of Times Square's tourists.
"You have robbed our homes and fortunes Even drove us from our land You tried to break our spirit But you'll never understand The love of dear old Ireland That will forge an iron will As long as there are gallant men Like young Ned of the hill"
