"cheek by jowl" in lyrics

Paraziții - Cheek by jowl

Cheek by jowl with a little bitch
Cheek by jowl, connected to the bottle
Cheek by jowl with a joint, I'm afraid
Some things just can't be explained

Günter Grass - What Must Be Said

even more, all people, that in this
region occupied by mania
live cheek by jowl among enemies,
and also us, to be helped.
