    Joni Mitchell
    Neil Young
    Leonard Cohen

    All Canadian, of course.

    Andy Partridge of XTC has penned many poetic masterpieces, poetic and damn witty all in the same package.

    Also seconding Joni Mitchell.

    Rod Stewart:

    She was tall, thin and tarty
    And she drove a Maserati
    Faster than sound
    I was heaven bound
    Although I must have looked a creep
    In my army surplus jeep
    Was I being too bold
    Before the night could get old
