The power of a good hook

I've been walking around singing two lines from a Marty Jones song,

"You kissed me on the lips,
and I've been sick ever since."

I heard this on Satuday night (now it's Thursday). That's the power of a good hook (both lyrically and melodically), it sticks in your brain.

As a songwriter, I want to develop hooks that work like this one.

My favorite Marty Jones line is:

"I never thought another penis
Could ever come between us"

from Marty's song, "I Got Over You the Day You Got Under Him"
