Music lyric trivia
OK, some of these are dead easy and some require extra credit...see how many you can get. And no, this is not an open book (e.g. Internet use is barred) test! (No, it's not about food or Cookie Monster, but he is my hero and I liked this picture. Contrary to the tune Sesame Street has been forced to sing, cookies are *not* just a "sometimes food.")
These range from rock to punk to country to alternative to folk.
Person with the most correct guesses gets a $4 bar of Portland's own Moonstruck Chocolate. (Yes, they're *that* good.)If you are not a chocolate person, we'll negotiate.
1. he could lick 'em by smiling
he could leave 'em to hang
2. There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
3. she's just a corn-fed white-bred chick
born in the right zip code
she comes with a gold card
she'll never have to pay for it
4. No evolution
Sometimes it depresses me
The same old same
We keep repeating history
5. Feel the breeze deep on the inside look you down into your well
If you can you'll see the world in all his fire
I hope my legs don't break
walking on the moon
7. And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
8. You were always spoiled with a thousand toys but still you cried all night.
Your mother who neglected you owes a million dollars tax.
9. Good morning, I'm leaving
And I'll be back in a few days
But that's just the way it is, you know
10. SUPER BONUS EXTRA CREDIT
Ja ne sais pas ce que je
Veux mais je l'aurai
Je veux semer la terreur dans la rue
PS Robert Tres, seeing as how you came up with some of these, you can't play, 'cause that would be cheating. And you eat enough chocolate anyhow.
