Song/Lyric Game Part 2

I think it's time to restart the thread so it doesn't take so long to load

last song posted was SueR
Come to the barbecue and sit by my side
We couldn't choose a better night if we tried
Can't you imagine what a thrill it will be
Pickin' a chicken with me

It's so romantic, the moon up above
Is extra bright on a night such as this
Pullin' a wishbone with someone you love
Is almost certain to end with a kiss

So come to the barbecue, my darling my dear
I'm so in love with you and when you are near

Eve Boswell

So I pulled up to a neon sign on highway forty-nine
Shut the engine down, took a look around
And then I stepped inside
I asked that bouncer where I was
He said, "Son, you're at Bills"

Honky tonk pickin', line dance kickin'
Razor back stickin', barbecue chicken
Laundromat bar and grill

Confederate Railroad

And don't forget who's taking you home
And in whose arms you're gonna be
So darling, save the last dance for me

I'm sitting in the railway a ticket to my destination. On a tour of one-night stands,my suitcase and guitar in hand,and every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band. Homeward bound,I wish I was,homeward bound. Home,where my thoughts escaping,Home,where my music's playing,Home,where my love lies waiting,silently for me. Simon and Garfunkel

One toke over the line sweet Jesus
One toke over the line
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line
Awaitin' for the train that goes home, sweet Mary
Hopin' that the train is on time
Sittin' downtown in a railway station
One toke over the line

Brewer & Shipley

I wonder if this squeaky clean duet have a clue what the song they are covering is about

They probably sang it because it contains the words sweet Jesus and sweet Mary. I was in college in 1971 and I tried pot, it didn't do anything for me and I just politely declined it at parties, but it was everywhere on campus and I never passed judgment on all my classmates who were doing it … at a time when the "establishment" was sending thousands of people my age to Vietnam to die... my neighbor and good friend died in Nam, it was an awful time … I found joy in my Orioles who won over 100 games three straight years, and I've always been fanatical about sports, but really … who was I to condemn young people who were using mary janes to mellow out? The great majority of them grew up to be good, hard working, and productive adults.

"Before you refuse, criticize and abuse
Walk a mile in my shoes"

Just take off your shoes
Just take off your shoes
You've nothing left to lose
Just take off your shoes
The shoes stay on my feet (on my feet)
The shoes stay on my feet (on my feet)
The shoes stay on my feet (on my feet)
The shoes stay on my feet
What's that sound?
I like that sound
I love that sound
It's the sound of my shoes


There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I've got to beware
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Buffalo Springfield

I'm all about the look that you're giving me
I'm all about the dance moves you're letting free
Well, I'm all about a sweet sounding loving spree
So Listen for my melody
And maybe I'm, I'm caught up in the thing that you know I like
You check it one time, baby overnight
See we can make a grand escape
Or we can roll high, by the way
And when we come down, o yeah yeah yeah
We'll be dreaming safe and sound


When I met you in the restaurant you could tell I was no debutante
You asked me what's my pleasure, "A movie or a measure"?
I'll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreamin'
Dreamin' is free
Dreamin', dreaming is free

Time, time time, see what's become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities

I was so hard to please
Don't look around

And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Winter is here, and it's cold this time of year.
There's snow everywhere in sight, falling on this winter night.
By candle light, we share this chilly night.
There's frost on the window pane, winter nights are here again.


Sometimes in winter
I love you when the good times
Seem like memories in the spring
That never came

Sometimes in winter
I wish the empty streets
Would fill with laughter
From the tears that ease my pain

Blood, Sweat and Tears

Today's gonna be a beautiful day, uh huh
No more waiting for the usual thing, uh huh

No matter what they say
Words can't bring you down

Follow the smoke from my fireplace
Right to my door
We'll sit by the fire
Like we've done before
Hang your hat on the nail
Make yourself home

Cody Canada

Out all night running wild
Woman sitting home with a month old child

Dang me, dang me
They aughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman, would you weep for me?

Roger Miller

December 7th

Lonely is the night when you find yourself alone
Your demons come to light and your mind is not your own

Lonely is the night when there's no one left to call
You feel the time is right, say the writing's on the wall

Lonely, lonely, lonely your spirit's sinkin' down
You find you're not the only stranger in this town

Billy Squier

For the words of the prophets
Were written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And echo with the sounds of silence

Simon and Garfunkel

Subway Terror...
I got my suit on
I got my boot on
I'm goin' down that stairway
Gotta put my glove on
If I get some blood on
My sneakers I don't care
Hey man, I got my ludes
I'm in the mood
They look so lovely and pale
When they kiss the third rail
And they won't step lively anymore


We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray

And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale

Monday morning
Friday's far away
Pray you'll make it

Bells will ring and you'll go out to play
Spend your money
Pass the bottle

Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me
Comin' Tuesday I feel better

Heavenly bound
Cause heaven's got a number
When she's spinning me around
Kissing is a color
Her loving is a wild dog
She's got the look

My favorite one from- Roxette

where your love lives
where your heart flies
that's where I wake up
my final morning
inner voices
heavenly angels smiling
begin to sing a song''

Marie Fredriksson

from the movie Arn - The Knight Templar

Sing a song.
Make it simple to last your whole life long.
Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear.
Just sing.
Sing a song.


Oh a lifetime isn't enough to love you
And a lifetime isn't enough to live
Oh a lifetime isn't enough to love you
And one lifetime isn't enough to live

Ziggy Marley

I'll teach you all this in eight easy steps
A course of a lifetime you'll never forget
I'll show you how to in eight easy steps
I'll show you how leadership looks when taught by the best

Alanis Morissette

"Oh, wait a minute, mister
I didn't even kiss her
Don't want no trouble with you
And I know you don't owe me
But I wish you'd let me
Ask one favor from you"
"Oh, won't you
Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
Gimme three steps toward the door?

Lynyrd Skynyrd

When they insist on knowing my bliss
I tell them this
When they want to know what the reason is
I only smile when I lie, then I tell them why
your kiss is on my list
(Because your kiss) your kiss is on my list
Because your kiss is on my list of the best things in life

Hall & Oates

I say I don't love you
But you know I'm a liar
'Cause when we kiss
Ooh, fire

If I had all the money in the world
I'd probably burn it all
If I had all the riches in the world
I'd surely burn it all

One in a million, money gonna kill a man
Why must we lose control?
Blaze up a fire storm, the people getting higher from
The smoke of another man's gold

Who set the world on fire?
Who set the world on fire?
Who set the world on fire?
It was me, I set the world on fire

Stick Figure

my top 10 pick, GREAT SONG

The story is told
Of the power of gold
And its lure on the unsuspecting
It glitters and shines
It badgers it blinds
And constantly needs protecting
Balance the cost
Of the soul you've lost
With the dreams that you've lightly sold
Are you under the power of gold?

Dan Fogelberg

ok, so the word is 'and' but one good Fogelberg song deserves another-

Met my old lover in the grocery store
The snow was falling Christmas Eve
I stood behind her in the frozen foods
And I touched her on the sleeve

She didn't recognize the face at first
But then her eyes flew open wide
She went to hug me and she spilled her purse
And we laughed until we cried

We took her groceries to the check out stand
The food was totaled up and bagged
We stood there lost in our embarrassment
As the conversation lagged

We went to have ourselves a drink or two
But couldn't find an open bar
We bought a six-pack at the liquor store
And we drank it in her car

We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to now
We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
But neither one knew how

Dan Fogelberg

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money

She's got a ticket to ride

It's just a heathen town
I hear only evil
As my tongue is tightened
I used to be god-fearing
Now I'm so frightened
Because the devil will drag you under
By the sharp tail fin
Of your checkered cab
And I can't sit down
I'm going overboard
In this heathen town

You can take me under
You can give me a lip
You can take me over
You can give me the slip
You can take off everything or tear me off a strip
With a bullet in the chamber and another in the clip

You can miss it by a mile or you can miss by an inch
Don't move a muscle, baby, don't even flinch
Or little goody two shoes will feel the pinch

One way or another, I'm gonna lose ya

You say hop and I'll hop
You say stop and I'll stop

Anything you say, I'm like a hunk of clay
I'm just like putty
A putty in your hands

Eric Clapton

Well, you can rock it you can roll it
You can stop and you can stroll it at the hop

You chalypso when you chicken at the hop
Do the dance sensation that is sweepin' the nation at the hop

Danny & the Juniors

I overwhelm as I approach you
Make your lungs hold breath inside

Let me in

I saw you there, just standing there
And I thought I was only dreaming, yeah
I kissed you then, then once again
You said you would come and dance with me

PS I am really glad I started this thread, but aren't we supposed to post the line(s) and then have people guess who it is... and the name of the song as well.

Too many lines and it is also too easy to figure out.

No worries either way, just not my original conception.

you didn't start this thread, go back to the top.
on this thread one posts lyrics from a song and the next picks a word or more from them and posts their choice of lyrics and so on.

back to this game

if you like country with a boogie beat he's the man to meet
if you like the sound of shufflin' feet he can't be beat
if you wanna feel real nice, just ask the rock and roll doctor's advice

It's quite the fashion, The Continental
Because you tell of your love while you dance
Your lips whisper so tenderly
Her eyes answer your song

And you are saying just what you're dreaming of
So keep on dancing, The Continental
