As you may have read yesterday, Lindsay Lohan has a new tattoo featuring some Billy Joel lyrics.


Lindsay now has a little stanza of Billy Joel's 1989 song "I Go To Extremes" on her ribcage. Click here for a photo of it. The lyrics she chose:

Clear as a crystal sharp as a knife

I feel like I'm in the prime of my lifeHer mom, Dina, told the "Daily News" that the tat represents how Lindsay is "back on top of her game."

Now instead of just comparing and contrasting our opinions about Lindsay Lohan's new tattoo-which, of course, we're still going to do--I think we should have fun with this tidbit of beauty news. It's Friday, after all, and one of the last summer Fridays of 2011, at that. So here's the game: If you were to ink some Billy Joel lyrics onto your body, which ones would you choose? (I know not all of you were 1980s kids like me, but hopefully you know at least a few of his ubiquitous tunes, especially if you live in the New York area.)

Perhaps in honor of my half-Italian heritage, I'd choose a stanza from "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant."

*A bottle of white, a bottle of red

Perhaps a bottle of rose instead*

Ah yes, that suits me perfectly. But wait! What about something from "River Of Dreams"? Something a little more thought-provoking, like ...

*We all end in the ocean

We all start in the streams*

Or I could go with an homage to the city I've called home for a decade now.

*I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line

'Cause I'm in a New York state of mind. *

Hmm. This decision is going to be harder than I thought.

OK, your turn to play: Which Billy Joel lyrics would you get a tattoo of, and why? Click here for inspiration!
