Verbal Stuff That I Like: Kris Kristofferson's Cascading Negatives Edition

This is from "Best of All Possible Worlds" on the Me and Bobby McGee album:
I said "I won't be leaving no more quicker than I can/'Cause I've enjoyed about as much of this as I can stand/And I don't need this town of yours more than I never needed nothing else!"!
Of course, "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose/And nothing ain't worth nothing, but it's free" is also very wonderful, but you've all heard that one already, and this is an educational blog. [chortle]
