    Post the first line of a song lyric. Players post the next line. You can
    post the whole thing if you know it and are feeling energetic.

    Q. First the tide rushes in
    A. Plants a kiss on the shore

    3 Some say love; it is a river

    Hi Kids

    I did a post last night. When I got done my post vanished, and I was kicked off the net. Don't even remember the songs I posted. But now I see my post is back. The one that starts with number 5. All very confusiatin'.

    Patti, yes, I was trying to correct my misstatement about the number of your right
    answers when the computer went crazy. It's really getting difficult for me to post
    more than a sentence or two.

    OK, got thrown off the board again. I guess I hit another wrong key.

    I get too befuddled when I try to scroll up and down to see what was answered, etc. Furthermore I lost my list of titles. OY! I think you guys got all the ones you
    answered right.

    9 is A big yellow tulip.
    10 is Like no business I know. Irving Berlin
    11 To me he was so wonderful. (And my mind or fingers keeps substituting words. On this answer I typed "is" instead of "he".) Reminds me of when I had to give up playing Bridge.

    Don't know the last two.

    Rock

    Rock and Duckie, You got all correct.

    #16 "Purple People Eater." It was a one eyed, one horned flying purple people eater.

    #18 "Who Wrote the Book of Love." Tell me, tell me, tell me who wrote the book of love.

    #19 "With a Little Help From My Friends." Would you stand up and walk out on me?

    21 Dunno the next line, but the wonderful Karen Carpenter sang it.

    25 These foolish things remind me of you.

    26 What you would have him say. Something Wonderful, from Rodgers and
    Hammerstein's The King and I.

    24 From Life is Just A Bowl of Cherries; can't remember the next line. Remember
    Irma Bombeck's book? If Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries, What am I Doing in the Pits?

    I don't know most of the lyrics you posted. I only know old songs. I must be too
    old to play with you kids.

    Ha ha Rock. No you're not any older than I am. Got my 78th birthday coming up. I was trying to post some songs for different decades. Still trying to be GB the social director here on our ship, "The Good Ship O My Gosh." You got them all correct.Life is just a bowl of cherries, don't take it serious, it's too mysterious, is the next line of #24.

    I read all of Erma's books back in the day. Loved her writing. Do you remember "The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank" ? This is so true. When I was a kid we had watermelons growing over ours. I guess someone dropped a seed there. We never ate them though. There were actually a few diamond back rattle snakes in there at one time. Florida, gotta love it. GB

    14 was "on a tragic and fateful day" (M.T.A. - Kingston Trio)
    15 was "coo coo ca choo Mrs. Robinson...) Simon and Garfunkel
    17 was "and the birds will have to sit upon the ground" - Tennessee Bird Walk, Misty Morgan and Jack Blanchard
    and my evil #20 was "Dies Illa" which comes from the requiem mass. Means Day of anger, day of wrath.

    I'm much younger than both of you, so I've been trying to keep my picks to older songs from my rather eclectic collection.

    Duckie, I hadn't heard of those three. I think most of my memories of song lyrics are from the 50's and 70's. I still remember a few from the 40's because my aunt played them on our record player/hi-fi. I was raisng 4 little ones in the 60's and don't think I even had time to listen to music or much of anything else! lol

    By the 80'-90's and beyond, I was more into retro music. Already acting like an old lady. My all time favorites were from the 70's even though I was a teenager in the 50's. I loved the slow, romantic songs of that era more than rock and roll of my generation. Give me The Carpenters and Diana Ross and the Supremes every time. :) GB

    Hi Folks

    Nothing says nostalgia like music. I know lots of 40s songs even though I was not
    yet in school because my mother used to play all her old records every time her brother
    came to visit. They especially liked novelty tunes by folks like Spike Jones and Dorothy Shay. (On Youtube if you're curious. Or even if you're not curious.)

    Duckie, Somewhere in my CDs I have a performance of the Verdi Requiem led by
    Toscanini. He used to broadcast on the NBC network. NBC put together an orchestra
    just for him. There were also several opera broadcasts. I have some of them too. I saw
    a live performance of the Requiem in Las Vegas 50 years ago.

    GB, you had rattle snakes near your house? Yikes! I used to catch toads and frogs
    and snakes when I was in my yute, but the only snakes around were garter snakes.
    Docile as a butterfly. Yup, I read all of Erma's books. Learned of her when the same
    uncle mentioned above gave me one of her books. If you give a man the right book,
    you won't have to teach him to fish.

    Just went to Youtube. Erma is there. I watched her appearance on the Tonight
    show with the great Johnny Carson. Today's late night hosts are, well, different.

    Hugs
    Rock

    We had many snakes around the neighborhood, some were even reptiles! :) Most of them were black snacks and garter snakes but there really was a baby diamond back rattler in our watermelon patch. All the neighbors were trying to kill the mom snake. One day I saw her slithering across the street. She was a big one. The guy down the street shot it.

    We also had a coral snake under our house one time. Very scary. No aligators though, too far from the water. One of my girlfriends was bitten by a diamond back and spent time in the hospital. She was lucky to survive. We played in the woods all the time. Had to be very very careful where you stepped. GB

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep.

    So I would not stop here to sleep.

    Suppose a rattler seeking heat
    cuddled up; then bit your feet.
