Songbird Lyrics Game

Name The Song That The Lyrics Belong To And/Or An Artist Who Sang It-
Let Us Know Which Ones You Knew- If They've Already Been Answered
a) Ones that are solved will turn to black.-b)Ones that are partly solved will turn to gray-c)Blue=unsolved.
1)Through all these cities -and all these towns-It's in my blood- and it's all around...

2)Sometimes I'm right- and I can be wrong- My own beliefs are in my song..

3)Who am I to disagree? -I travel the world -And the seven seas...

4) People say that love's a game- A game you just can't win...

5) The road is long-With many a winding turn-That leads us to who knows where-Who knows when...

6)all my instincts, they return-and the grand facade, so soon will burn- without a noise, without my pride-I reach out from the inside

7)The birds, like tender babies in your hands-And the old men playing checkers by the trees

8) 'Know it sounds funny but I just can't stand the pain-

9) Can't you hear the pitter-pat-And that happy tune is your step-Life can be complete...

10) I've been in my mind,-it's such a fine line...

11) Love you ev'ry day girl,-Always on my mind. One thing I can say girl,-Love you all the time...

12)Take me- to the magic of the moment- On a glory night -Where the children of tomorrow- share their dreams -With you and me

13) He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below, saw everything as far as you can see.

14)He came, on a summer's day-Bringing gifts, from far away

15) Good Christians, fear, for sinners here-The silent Word is pleading.

I'll get it started with the ones I knew right away:

5) He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother (don't know who sang it)

9) On the Sunny Side of the Street (Keely Shay Smith sang a version)

There are others that are familiar, but it may take a while to remember...

13) Rocky Mountain High - John Denver

RuthieJ said...

14) Brandy (again, I can't remember who sang it)

RuthieJ said...

OK, this is my last one for tonight:
2) Everyday People - Sly and the Family Stone?

Mary C said...

I concur with Ruth on number 13 - Rocky Mountain High - John Denver. And # 15 is What Child is This? (to the tune of Greensleeves) - several artists have sung this tune.

Lynne at Hasty Brook said...

HA Ruth!! You're hooked!!

Larry said...

Mary Carlson-you are correct.
ruthiej-Great Job!-Watch out for Lynne though-she wants you to build up your confidence so that she has a challenge.

RuthieJ said...

I am so pathetically hooked! You should have seen me...I printed the page out and I'm hunched over my computer desk with it trying to work these lyrics out. It's a great game!

Lynne at Hasty Brook said...

>2. can't get the title but is it by Sly and the Family Stone?

Ruthie- you're my kind of gal! I get these lyrics running through my head to get a title- it makes my husband nuts!!

Lynne at Hasty Brook said...


10. Heart of Gold/ by Neil Young

and I'm guessing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir MUST have sung 15 some time.

3. Sweet Dreams - The Eurythmics (or maybe it was just Annie)

12. Wind of Change - The Scorpions (nice!)

I knew 6, 8, 10, 11 also.
