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 station.got 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
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=t8tdmaEhMHE


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.

It's the sound of my shoes

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

There's frost on the window pane, winter nights are here again.

Seem like memories in the spring

Would fill with laughter
From the tears that ease my pain

Hang your hat on the nail

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

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

Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear.
Just sing.
Sing a song.

Don't want no trouble with you

Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
Gimme three steps toward the door?

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 is on my list of the best things in life

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

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

December 15th

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

Tracey Chapman


She's got a ticket to ride
But she don't care

[Chorus]
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

The Ronettes


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

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

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.

if you like the sound of shufflin' feet he can't be beat

Diamond Jackie, she's so intact
As she falls so softly beneath him
Jackie's heels are stacked
Billy's got cleats on his boots
Together they're gonna boogaloo down Broadway
And come back home with the loot
It's midnight in Manhattan, this is no time to get cute
It's a mad dog's promenade
So walk tall
Or baby, don't walk at all.....

(Bruce Juice)- "NYC Serenade"


Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade and the gamblin' commission's hangin' on by the skin of its teeth.

There's a rumble in Brighton tonight
Ringside seats for the neighborhood fight
There ain't a damn thing that the cops can do
There's a rumble in Brighton tonight

The Stray Cats


All the cops in the donut shops say
Way oh way oh way oh way ooooo
Walk like an Egyptian

The Bangles

By the way, I was in Allentown PA and saw a cop car with a sticker that read …
WARNING car stops at Dunkin Donuts shops

A cop with a sense of humor (so rare)

Diamond eyes
That burn me and turn me to stone
Crystallize
And freeze me in clear monochrome
Turn me to stone; do anything you want with me
Turn me to stone; do anything you want

Such a rare thing, radiant child
I could never find, another one like you
Part of me is deep down inside you

And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away

Sarah McLachlan
(my favorite lyrics from her)


One! singular sensation
Every little step she takes
One! thrilling combination
Every move that she makes
One smile and suddenly nobody else will do
You know you'll never be lonely with you know who
One! moment in her presence
And you can forget the rest
For the girl is second best, to none,son
Oh sigh give her your attention
Do I really have to mention
She's the one

Steadily moves
Like the grooves on a record
My head spins
When she talks to me
Oh, yeah

Slip and sliding
We go gliding by
And I can hear her say
My baby says "Hey"

She talks in Stereo
She sounds so good to me
She talks in Stereo

She said I even sounded good in her car through her '87 stereo
Yeah she thought I was cool

And late at night I turn you on
On the radio
I love the music
On the radio
It's what they're playing
When the radio's on and you
And me get crazy

Midnight, on the water
I saw the ocean's daughter
Walking on a wave she came
Staring as she called my name

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my whole world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head

Breakdown on the shoreline
Can't move it's an ebbtide
Morning, don't get here tonight
Searching for her silver light

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head

After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down
After midnight, we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout
We're gonna stimulate some action
We're gonna get some satisfaction
We're gonna find out what it is all about
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down (after midnight, after midnight)


Chug-a-lug, chug-a-lug
Makes you wanna holler hei-de-ho
Burns your tummy don't ya know
Chug-a-lug, chug-a-lug

From all I've seen, you only get one shot
At what you're gonna do in this life
Ah, what the hell, I guess I might as well
Take a chance and try my way
I'm like James Brown only white and taller
And all I wanna do is stomp and holler

I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know them all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright

Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't I'll go outta my mind
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright

I know if I go, things would be a lot better for her
I had things planned but her folks wouldn't let her

Sing out a message

Somewhere the sun is shining
Through a silver lining
Wait and see, say the rainy day bells

Once I sat upon a hill to watch the world go by
My friend the young magician had forbidden me to cry
But I was the comedian with the laughs in short supply
Shine on silver sun, shine on everyone
Shine on silver sun, shine on
The sunlight filtered softly through the pale and watery sky
To catch the mirrored salmon as it rose to take the fly
The flowers on the riverbank were left alone to die
Shine on silver sun, shine on everyone
Shine on silver sun, shine on
The church bells sounded midnight as I rose to say goodbye
And a solitary tear fell from the corner of my eye
Shine on silver sun,shine on everyone
Shine on silver sun, shine on

They hear the gold that's in your heart
I'll be fine, oh, I can stay with an old friend of mine
I can find myself some California wine

I want to live, I want to give
I've been a miner for a heart of gold
It's these expressions I never give
That keep me searching for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old

Shiny happy people laughing

Meet me in the crowd, people,people
Throw your love around, love me, love me
Take it into town, happy, happy
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands, take it, take it
There's no time to cry, happy, happy
Put it in your heart where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

Pack up your troubles and just get happy
Ya better chase all your cares away
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
Get ready for the judgement day

The sun is shinin', c'mon get happy
The Lord is waiting to take your hand
Shout Hallelujah, c'mon get happy
We're goin' to the Promised Land

We're headin' cross the river
Gonna wash our sins in the tide
It's all so peaceful
On the other side

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
There'll be sun

Just thinkin' about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow
'Til there's none

When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely
I just stick out my chin and grin and say
Oh!

The sun'll come out tomorrow
So ya gotta hang on 'til tomorrow
Come what may
Tomorrow tomorrow I love ya tomorrow
You're only a day away

See, when you forgive your imperfections
And you've auctioned all your clothes
And look to see your true reflection
You will be the one who loves you the most
You will be the one who loves you the most
You will be the one who loves you the most

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful

Why don't you try a little kindness
Yes, show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
You can overlook the blindness
Of the narrow minded people

Mott the Hoople


I'm driving in my car
I turn on the radio
I'm pulling you close
You just say no
You say you don't like it
But I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss
Ooooh fire

Late at night
I'm taking you home
I say I wanna stay
You say you wanna be alone
You say you don't love me
Girl you can't hide your desire
'Cause when we kiss
Ooooh fire

You had a hold on me
Right from the start
A grip so tight
I couldn't tear it apart
My nerves all jumpin'
Actin' like a fool
Well your kisses they burn
But your heart stays cool

Romeo and Juliet
Samson and Delilah
Baby you can bet
Their love they didn't deny
You words say split
But your words they lie
'Cause when we kiss
Mmmmmm, Fire, Fire

Burnin' in my soul
It's outta control
