Sure to Fall in Love with You (Beatles)

I'm sure to fall, fall in love,
I'm sure to fall in love with you.
You are so sweet and so near.
I'm sure to fall in love with you.
So hold me tight,
and let tonight be the night.
Darling, don't ever let me go.
Loving you is the natural thing to do,
I want you for the rest of my life.
So hold me tight,
let tonight be the night.
Oh darling, don't ever let me go.
Loving you is the natural thing to do,
I want you for the rest of my life.

Life On Mars
David Bowie

It's a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling "No"
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on Amerikas tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

You may wanna back up to ON, fot the next post

Feel The Love Tonight
~ Elton John



There's a calm surrender
To the rush of day
When the heat of the rolling world
Can be turned away

An enchanted moment
And it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior
Just to be with you

And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for wide eyed wanderer
That we got this far

And can you feel the love tonight
How it's laid to rest
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

There's a time for ev'ryone
If they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope
Moves us all in turn

There's a rhyme and reason
To the wild outdoors
When the heart of this starcrossed voyager
Beats in time with yours

And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far

And can you feel the love tonight
How it's laid to rest?
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

I love the Eagles although this particular song was never real high on my list, however, it fits.

BEST of my Love - The Eagles

Every night I'm lyin' in bed
Holdin' you close in my dreams
Thinkin' about all the things that we said
And comin' apart at the seams
We try to talk it over
But the words come out to rough
I know you were tryin'
to give me the best of your love

Beautiful faces and loud, empty places
Look at the way that we live
Wastin' our time on cheap talk and wine
Left us so little to give
That same old crowd
Was like a cold dark cloud
That we could never rise above
But here in my heart I give you the best of my love
Oh sweet darlin' you get the best of my love, oh
Sweet darlin', you get the best of my love

I'm goin' back in time
And it's a sweet dream
It was a quiet night
And I would be all right
If i could go on sleepin'
But every mornin'
I wake up and worry
What's gonna happen today
You see it your way
And I see it mine
But we both see it slippin' away

You know we always had each other baby
I guess that wasn't enough
Oh, but here in my heart
I give you the best of my love
Oh, sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love
Oh, sweet darlin'
You get the best of my love
Every night and day,
You get the best of my love
Oh, sweet darlin' you get the best of my love
Oh, sweet darlin' you get the best of my love..
etc..

Beatles - All You Need Is Love

LOVE, Love, Love.
Love, Love, Love.
Love, Love, Love.


There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
It's easy.


Nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It's easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you NEED.

I Want You I Need You I Love You

Elvis Presley

Hold me close, hold me tight
Make me thrill with delight
Let me know where I stand from the start
I want you, I need you, I love you
With all my heart

Every time that you're near
All my cares disappear
Darling, you're all that Im living for
I want you, I need you, I love you
More and more

I thought I could live without romance
Until you came to me
But now I know that
I will go on loving you eternally

Won't you please be my own?
Never leave me alone
cause I die every time we're apart
I want you, I need you, I love you
With all my heart

Another Eagles tune...

HEARTache Tonight

Somebodys gonna hurt someone
Before the night is through
Somebodys gonna come undone.
Theres nothin we can do.
Everybody wants to touch somebody
If it takes all night.
Everybody wants to take a little chance,
Make it come out right.

Theres gonna be a heartache tonight,
A heartache tonight, I know.
Theres gonna be a heartache tonight, I know.
Lord, I know.

Some people like to stay out late
Some folks cant hold out that long
But nobody wants to go home now.
Theres too much goin on.

This night is gonna last forever.
Last all, last all summer long.
Some time before the sun comes up
The radio is gonna play that song.
Theres gonna be a heartache tonight,
A heartache tonight, I know.
Theres gonna be a heartache tonight,
A heartache tonight, I know.
Lord I know.

Theres gonna be a heartache tonight,
The moons shinin bright
So turn out the light, and well get it right.
Theres gonna be a heartache tonight, a
Heartache tonight I know.
Heartache baby,

Somebodys gonna hurt someone, (somebody)
Before the night is through
Somebodys gonna come undone,
Theres nothin we can do
(everybody) everybody wants to touch somebody
If it takes all night
Everybody wants to take a little chance
To make it come out right

Theres gonna be a heartache tonight
A heartache tonight, I know
Theres gonna be a heartache tonight,
A heartache tonight ,i know
Lets go.
We can beat around the bushes;
We can get down to the bone
We can leave it in the parkin lot,
But either way, theres gonna be a
Heartache tonight, a heartache tonight I know.
Therell be a heartache tonight
A heartache tonight I know.

I Know What I Know (Paul Simon)



She looked me over
And I guess she thought
I was all right
All right in a sort of a limited way
For an off-night
She said don't I know you
From the cinematographer's party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind
I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

She said there's something about you
That really reminds me of Money
She is the kind of a girl
Who could say things that
Weren't that funny
I said what does that mean
I really remind you of Money
She said who am I
To blow against the wind

I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

She moved so easily
All I could think of was sunlight
I said aren't you the woman
Who was recently given a Fulbright
She said don't I know you
From the cinematographer's party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind

I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

Headgames -Foreigener

Daylight, alright
I dont know, I dont know if its real
Been a long night and something aint right
You wont show, you wont show how you feel

No time ever seems right
To talk about the reasons why you and I fight
Its high time to draw the line
Put an end to this game before its too late

Head games, its you and me baby
Head games, and I cant take it anymore
Head games, I dont wanna play the...
Head games

I daydream for hours it seems
I keep thinkin of you, yeah, thinkin of you
These daydreams, what do they mean?
They keep haunting me, are they warning me?

Daylight turns into night
We try and find the answer but its nowhere in sight
Its always the same and you know whos to blame
You know what Im sayin, still we keep on playin

Head games, thats all I get from you
Head games, and I cant take it anymore
Head games, dont wanna play the...
Head games

So near, so far away
We pass each other by cause we dont know what to say
Its so clear, Im sorry to say
But if you wanna win you gotta learn how to play

Head games, always you and me, baby
Head games, till I cant take it anymore
Head games, instead of makin love
Head games, ooh

Head games, always you and me, baby
Head games, till I cant take it anymore, no more
Head games, instead of makin love, we play
Head games

Head games, in the first degree
Head games, yeah, always you and me
Head games, why do you do it baby?
Head games

Continuing with the game...

GAMES people play - The Spinners

Can't get no rest
Don't know how I work all day
When will I learn?
Memories get in the way
I walk around
I can't hear a sound, folks talkin' loud, but I
Don't see at all
I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't
Know where to go
It's hopeless so
I guess I'll leave it alone well I
Spent all my day
Fixin' up to go somewhere
Thought I was late
And I found she wasn't there
I guess I'll find
The love, peace of mind, some other time, but I
Still have today
I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't
Know where to go
It's hopeless so
I guess I'll leave it alone
Games people play
Night or day they're just not matchin'
What they should do
Keeps me feelin' blue
Been down too long
Right, wrong, they just can't stop it
Spendin' all day
Thinking just of you
Twelve forty-five
Headed for the subway home
I took my time
'Cause I felt so all alone
Not far away
I heard a funny sound, took a look around, and I
Could see her face
Smile as she came, callin' out my name, so I
Know where to go
We'll take it slow
Guess I'll call it a day
Games people play
Night or day they're just not matchin'
What they should do
Keeps me feelin' blue
Been down too long
Right, wrong, they just can't stop it
Spendin' all day
Thinking just of you
Games people play
Night or day they're just not matchin'
What they should do
Keeps me feelin' blue
Been down too long
Right, wrong, they just can't stop it
Spendin' all day
Thinking just of you

DO you believe in love - Huey Lewis

I was walking down a one way street
Just a looking for someone to meet
One woman who was looking for a man
Now I'm hoping that the feeling is right
And I'm wondering if you'll stay for the night
So I'm coming (I don't wanna be lonely)
I wanna love you all over

Do you believe in love
Do you believe it' true
Do you believe in love
Oh you can bet I believe it too

Now the feeling is beginning to grow
And the meaning is something you only know
If you believe it take my hand and I'll take your heart
Now I'm wondering where does true love begin
I'm going under so I'm lettin' you in
My woman (I don't wanna be lonely)
I wanna love you all over

Do you believe in love
Do you believe it' true
Do you believe in love
Oh you can bet I believe it too

I use to have you in a photograph
(I'm so glad it's changed)
But now I've got you and it's gonna last
(Do you believe in love)

Do you believe in love
Do you believe it' true
Do you believe in love
Oh you can bet I believe it too

I'm Too Sexy - Right Said Fred

I'm too sexy for my love too sexy for my love
Love's going to leave me

I'm too sexy for my shirt too sexy for my shirt
So sexy it hurts
And I'm too sexy for Milan too sexy for Milan
New York and Japan

And I'm too sexy for your party
Too sexy for your party
No way I'm disco dancing

DANCING in the Dark - BRUCE!


I get up in the evening, and I aint got nothing to say
I come home in the morning, I go to bed feeling the same way
I aint nothing but tired, man Im just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You cant start a fire, you cant start a fire without a spark
This guns for hire even if were just dancing in the dark

Message keeps getting clearer, radios on and Im moving round the place
I check myself out in the mirror I wanna change my clothes my hair my face
Man I aint getting nowhere just sitting in a dump like this
Theres something happening somewhere baby I just know that there is

You cant start a fire...

You sit around getting older theres a joke here somewhere and its on me
Ill shake this world off my shoulders come baby this laughs on me

Stay on the streets of this town and theyll be carving you up alright
They say you got to stay hungry hey baby Im just about starving tonight
Im dying for some action Im sick of sitting round here trying to write
This book
I need a love reaction come on now baby give me just one look

You cant start a fire without a spark..

(Come On Baby)Light My Fire - The Doors

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire

I'll delete this post if it's too much of a cheat. Just let me know. I couldn't think of any songs with spark in the title or first line.

I am the god of hellfire
And I bring you
Fire, I`ll take you to burn
Fire, I`ll take you to learn
I`ll see you burn

You fought hard
And you saved and earned
But all of it`s going to burn
And your mind, your tiny mind
You know you`ve really been so blind
Now`s your time burn your mind
You`re falling far too far behind
Oh, no, oh, no, oh, no
You gonna burn

Beds Are Burning - Midnight Oil

Out where the river broke
The bloodwood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam in forty five degrees

The time has come
To say fair's fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share
The time has come
A fact's a fact
It belongs to them
Let's give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep when our beds are burning

Four wheels scare the cockatoos
From kintore east to yuendemu
The western desert lives and breathes
In forty five degrees

(live - on scream in blue
The time has come
A fact's a fact
It belongs to us all
Let's give it back)

Gee but it's great to be back home
Home is where I want to be.
I've been on the road so long my friend,
And if you came along
I know you couldn't disagree.

It's the same old story
Everywhere I go,
I get slandered,
Libeled,
I hear words I never heard
In the Bible
And I'm on step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied,
Satisfied.

Thanks Tango, it looks like we have similar tastes! A true humanitarian. I remember vividly the day (night) John Lennon was assassinated. It was a global loss, where JFK,RFK and MLK were primarily America's losses. I was living at my mother's house and several people called to see how I was handling it. THAT'S how big a fan I am (and always was). As in those above-cited tragedies, we seemed to be headed to a better world, then someone took it from us. I'll NEVER forget John Lennon. He and RFK are at the top of my list of dedicated humanitarians. Great people. The world is much worse of without him (them). Give peace a chance.

I have to cheat a bit on this one...
Waylon Jennings, Just to Satisfy You



Someone's gonna get hurt before you're through
Someone's gonna pay for the things you do
How many hearts must break,how many will it take
To satisfy you,just to satisfy you

Bridge:
Another love,another fool
To play your game
Another love,another fool
They're all the same

Someone's gonna get hurt before you're through
Don't be surprised if that someone is you
You're gonna find when it's too late,a heart that just won't break
To satisfy you,just to satisfy you

How many tears were cried,how many dreams have died
To satisfy you,just to satisfy you

Great song....for all you CW/cowboy fans out there

In tribute to John Lennon...

YOU Really Got A Hold On Me - Smoky Robinson/The Beatles

I don't like you

Seems that I'm always thinking of you
Oh, oh, oh you treat me badly
I love you madly

You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
Baby

I don't want you

Don't wanna kiss you
but I need you
Oh, oh, oh, you do me wrong now
My love is strong now

You really got to hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
You really got to hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
Baby
I love you and all I want you to do is just
Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Tighter
tighter

I wanna leave you
Don't wanna stay here
Don't wanna spend another day here
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna split now
I can't quit now

You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
Baby
I love you and all I want you to do is just
Hold (me/) please (/Hold)
Sqeeze
Hold me, hold me

You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
I said you really got a hold on me (I said you really got a hold on me)
You know you really got a hold on me

Walk me down the lane where shadows
Will be (will be) will be (will be)
Hiding lovers just the same as we'll be, we'll be
When you make me tell you I love you

They told me be sensible with your new love
Don't be fooled, thinking this is the last you'll find
But they never stood in the dark with you, love
When you take me in your arms
And drive me slowly out of my mind

Kiss me (kiss me), kiss me (kiss me)
And when you do, I'll know that you will
Miss me (miss me), miss me (miss me)
If we ever say, adieu
So kiss me, kiss me
Make me tell you I'm in love with you

(Kiss me) kiss me, (kiss me) kiss me
When you do, I'll know that you will
Miss me (miss me), miss me (miss me)
If we ever say, adieu
So kiss me, kiss me
Make me tell you I'm in love with YOU

Dear Mr Soul,

I loved John Lennon so much. I wanted to dress like him and be just like him. Only, my mom hates John Lennon because she said he led all the kids down the primrose path to taking drugs. I thought he really had a lot of peace in his heart and a lot of love to share. I think I know more about JFK than RFK. I loved John. The world is getting bad again. I don't know what is going to save us ...

Tango,
It DOES seem hopeless sometimes, but I have faith that someone will step up to the plate and continue what he (they) started. Nelson Mandela is a good one.
Musically, Neil Young is helping with his Living With War album and the new CSNY tour, Freedom Of Speech '06, but that's pretty much focused on AMERICA'S problems. John Lennon was truly a friend of EARTH. Bono (from U2) is pretty active and does HIS bit for humanity, but Lennon's shoes will NEVER be filled.

PS Your mother may have been right ;)

I kinda resemble that photo (when I shave), my sister (an amateur seamstress) made me a lime green Sgt. Pepper's uniform, like the one he wore and I've worn it to a few Halloween parties. I kept those round wire-rims since they were last popular and just had new lenses fit to them. Yes, I AM a Lennon freak (damn that Mark Chapman, his soul will rot in hell ... with Oswald and Sirhan, Sirhan)

Well, this isn't a John Lennon song but it has you in the title--another cheerful earful from Pink Floyd:

Hey You [Pink Floyd]

Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fight.

Hey you, out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you, with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home.

But it was only fantasy.
The wall was too high,
As you can see.
No matter how he tried,
He could not break free.
And the worms ate into his brain.

Hey you, standing in the road
Always doing what you're told,
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall,
Breaking bottles in the hall,
Can you help me?
Hey you, dont tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.

[click of tv being turned on]
Well, only got an hour of daylight left. better get started
Isn't it unsafe to travel at night?
It'll be a lot less safe to stay here. Your father's gunna pick up our trail before long
Can loca ride?
Yeah, I can ride... magaret, time to go! maigret, thank you for everything
Goodbye chenga
Goodbye miss ...
I'll be back

Nobody can think of a song with back as the first word...?

Looking over this thread, I see that back was a problem before. Why not back up to the previous song, and try to come up with a song starting with you?

Ooh! But now
He's BACK in my arms again
Right by my side
I got him back in my arms again
So satisfied

It's easy for friends to say
Let him go
But I'm the one
Who needs him so
It's his love that makes me strong
Without him I can't go on
This time I'll live my life at ease
Being happy lovin' whom I please
And each time we make romance
I'll be thankfull for a second chance

Ooh! Cause
He's back in my arms again
Right by my side
I got him back in my arms again
So SATISFIED

I don't know if I have the nerve to do this to you nice people in this thread. I'll probably delete this post as it gets to bothering me, but here are some lyrics to a song that is probably too old and too awful to include:

Born to be with you
- by The Chordettes

By your side, satisfied
Through and through
'Cause I was born to be with you



Wondrously, love can see
So I knew that I was born to be with you



Do I find
Peace of mind
Yes, I do
'Cause I was born to be with you
All life through
Yes, I was born to be with you

Tango, I always liked this song ("Born to Be With You"), but when I refreshed my memory about some of their other songs, I began to think maybe "Born..." was really awful ("Mr. Sandman" was one I coudn't stand).

Maybe I killed this thread. So I'll put up some more lyrics--this is one of those songs that seem to be made for people with MS:

Doctor, My Eyes by Jackson Browne

Doctor, my eyes have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears without crying
Now I want to understand

I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good without hiding
You must help me if you can

Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise to leave them open for so long

cause I have wandered through this world
And as each moment has unfurled
Ive been waiting to awaken from these dreams
People go just where they will
I never noticed them until I got this feeling
That its later than it seems

Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what you see
I hear their cries
Just say if it's too late for me

Doctor, my eyes
Cannot see the sky
Is this the prize for having learned how not to cry

Now you say you're lonely
You cried the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue

So far, I can think of only one song with untrue in the title or first line, but it's been used in this thread before. Does that matter?

Anybody else able to think of some other song with untrue in its title or first line?

Guess nobody could think of a song with untrue in its title or first line, and so here's the song that has already been used in this game:

Quote:
(Come On Baby)Light My Fire - The Doors

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire


Maybe now this song game won't just fade away.

FIRE - Bruce

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 girl I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss, Fire

Late at night I'm takin' 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, 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
Your words say split but your words they lie

LIE to me - Johnny Lang

Lie to me and tell me everything is all right
Lie to me and tell me that you'll stay here tonight
Tell me that you'll never leave
Oh, and I'll just try to make believe
That everything, everything your telling me is true
Come on baby won't you just

Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me

Lie to me, it doesn't matter anymore
It could never be, the way it was before
If I can't hold on to you
Leave me somethin' I can hold onto
For just a little while won't you, won't you let me be

Oh, anyone can see
That you love him more than me
But right now baby let me pretend
That our love will never end

Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me

Me & Bobby McGee [Janis Joplin sings it--not sure who wrote the lyrics]

Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train
And I's feeling nearly as faded as my jeans.
Bobby thumbed a diesel down just before it rained,
It rode us all the way to New Orleans.

I pulled my harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,
I was playing soft while Bobby sang the blues.
Windshield wipers slapping time, I was holding Bobby's hand in mine,
We sang every song that driver knew.

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing don't mean nothing honey if it ain't free, now now.
And feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
You know feeling good was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

From the Kentucky coal mines to the California sun,
Hey, Bobby shared the secrets of my soul.
Through all kinds of weather, through everything that we done,
Hey Bobby baby kept me from the cold.

One day up near Salinas, Lord, I let him slip away,
He's looking for that home and I hope he finds it,
But I'd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday
To be holding Bobby's body next to mine.

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose,
Nothing, that's all that Bobby left me, yeah,
But feeling good was easy, Lord, when he sang the blues,
Hey, feeling good was good enough for me, hmm hmm,
Good enough for me and my Bobby McGee.

La la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la
La la la la la Bobby McGee.
La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, Bobby McGee, la.

La La la, la la la la la la,
La La la la la la la la la, hey now Bobby now Bobby McGee yeah.
Na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na na na na
Hey now Bobby now, Bobby McGee, yeah.

Lord, I'm calling my lover, calling my man,
I said I'm calling my lover just the best I can,
C'mon, where is Bobby now, where is Bobby McGee, yeah,
Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord
Hey, hey, hey, Bobby McGee, Lord!

Yeah! Whew!

Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lordy Lord
HEY, HEY, HEY, Bobby McGee.

Well, then...being the Neil Young fan that I am, this should come as no surprise:

Hey, Hey, My My (Into The Black) Not to be confused with My, My, Hey, Hey (out of the blue), the acoustic version

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There's more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my.

Out of the blue
and into the black
You pay for this,
but they give you that
And once you're gone,
you can't come back
When you're out of the blue
and into the black.

The king is gone
but he's not forgotten
Is this the story
of Johnny Rotten?
It's better to burn out
'cause rust never sleeps
The king is gone
but he's not forgotten.

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There's more to the picture
Than meets the eye.

Artist: Van Morrison
Song: Brown Eyed Girl



Hey where did we go,
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow,
Playin' a new game,
Laughing and a running hey, hey
Skipping and a jumping
In the misty morning fog with
Our hearts a thumpin' and you
My brown eyed girl,
You my brown eyed girl.

Whatever happened
To Tuesday and so slow
Going down the old mine
With a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing,
Hiding behind a rainbow's wall,
Slipping and sliding
All along the water fall, with you
My brown eyed girl,
You my brown eyed girl.

Do you remember when we used to sing,
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da

So hard to find my way,
Now that I'm all on my own.
I saw you just the other day,
My how you have grown,
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometime I'm overcome thinking 'bout
Making love in the green grass
Behind the stadium with you
My brown eyed girl
You my brown eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da.

Trying to revive this game:

Quote:
If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out [Cat Stevens]

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
cause theres a million things to be
You know that there are

And if you want to live high, live high
And if you want to live low, live low
cause theres a million ways to go
You know that there are

Chorus:
You can do what you want
The opportunitys on
And if you can find a new way
You can do it today
You can make it all true
And you can make it undo
You see ah ah ah
Its easy ah ah ah
You only need to know

Well if you want to say yes, say yes
And if you want to say no, say no
cause theres a million ways to go
You know that there are

And if you want to be me, be me
And if you want to be you, be you
cause theres a million things to do
You know that there are

Chorus

Well, if you want to sing out, sing out
And if you want to be free, be free
cause theres a million things to be
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are
You know that there are


Using the last line, you could find another song that has "you know" or "there are" as part of the first line (or the title).....

This is cool, I like to break rules....
I dearly love music, all kinds. When I go for the big dirtnap I hope this is the memory that I relive:
It's 1963, I'm 7 years old. My brother, best friend Bucky Baradi, his sister Becky (Sammy Hagar's first and future ex) are rollin down Beach blvd in a Corvette yellow Ford woody with 2 longboards on top and the Beach Boys blaring on the AM. I was the coolest 7 year old in the world. Becky and I made sand castles while those loser's surfed. HEY I'm on the beach with the bikini babe and you MORONS are surfing! yeah, that day didn't suck. I will try to find a song that fits the game, but this just came to mind.

I hope I can help stir the pot, that is what I am best at. I was a lead singer in a heavy metal bank the the cops busted our it way, got out of hand, 500 instead of 50 party. The police wanted to confiscate our 10 grand worth of pa. I didn't take kindly to that, They wanted to arrest me for inciting to riot, Got snuk out the back door in a dress using my hands to cover my mustache and my levi's rolled up above my dress pretending to be the bass players crying wife. If you need someone to incite a riot, I got experience

I won't back down, No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell but I
Won't-- back--down

HEY BABY, there ain't no easy way out
HEY MOMMA I will stand my ground
And I won' back down

TILL I GO DOWN by Jackson Browne

Quote:
Till I Go Down

Till I go down
Till I go down
Till I go down
I'm not gonna shut my eyes
Till I go down
I'm not gonna shut my eyes
I've already seen the lies
On the faces of the men of war
Leading people to the killing floor
Till I go down
Till I go down
Till I go down
I'm not gonna shut my eyes
No no
Till I go down
Till the world stops spinning around
Till I'm six feet under the ground
Till there's no sound
Till there's no pain
I'm gonna swing this chain
Till I go down
I'm not gonna shut my mouth
I'm for the truth to come out
About the leader with the iron will
And his allegiance to the dollar bill
Till I go down
Till I go down
Till I go down
I'm not gonna shut my eyes
Till I go DOWN

Down on the corner
Down on the Street
Willy and the poorboys are playing
bring a nickle stamp your feet

If you ain't got a penny
you can hang around
but you got a nickel
won't you lay you money down

Over on the corner
there's a happy noise
Willie blows a tune out
and doubles on Kazoo

I DARE YOU,I DARE YOU, FOUND "DOWN" AS THE LAST WORD AS THE FIRST ONE OF THE NEXT SONG I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU TO FIND A SONG WITH KAZOO AS THE FIRST WORD, BAD DOG VERY BAD DOG! DOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, somebody could weasel out of it by mentioning that the real last stanza of that song is:

Quote:
You dont need a penny just to hang around,
But if youve got a nickel, wont you lay your money down?
Over on the corner theres a happy noise.
People come from all around to watch
the magic boy.


Now all anybody has to do next is think of a song with "boy" as part of the title or part of the first line. Should be easy.
