Songbird Lyrics Game

Name the song that the lyrics belong to and/or an artist who performed it. Let us know which ones you knew, even if it has already been answered: Blue=Unanswered Grey=incomplete Black=already answered

1)Blue, blue windows behind the stars-Yellow moon on the rise-Big birds flying across the sky. Throwing shadows on our eyes-Leave us......

2)"Don't worry about a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right. Singin': "Don't worry about a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

3)Did you ever see a Robin weep-When leaves begin to die?

4) No use talkin' when the shadows fall-Night birds callin' and he says it all

5) Like a stamp to a letter, Like birds of a feather, We, stick together

6)A-well-a, everybody's heard about the birdBird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word

7)You wore a little cross of gold around your neck-I saw it as you flew between my reason-Like a raven in the night time when you left

8)Getting strong now-won't be long now-getting strong now

9)The Lord knows, I can't change. Lord help me, I can't change.

10)As the sun breaks, above the ground, An old man stands on the hill, As the ground warms, to the first rays of light-A birdsong shatters the still. (heavy metal)

11) There's a bright, golden haze on the meadow-There's a bright, golden haze on the meadow-The corn is as high as an elephant's eye-And it looks like it's climbing clear up to the sky.

12)Yeah we tease him a lot cause we’ve got him on the spot..

13)......Traveled down a road and back again-Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant

14)It's a rare condition, this day and age, to read any good news on the newspaper page. Love and tradition of the grand design, some people say it's even harder to find

15)I bet we been together for a million years, And I bet we'll be together for a million more

16)But when you're walkin' down that street-And you ain't had enough to eat-The glitter rubs right off and you're nowhere

17)The old home town looks the same- as I step down from the train, and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa. Down the road I look and there runs Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries. It's good to touch the......

18)Now once I was downhearted-Disappointment was my closest friend-But then you came and he soon departed-And you know he never showed his face again..

20)Was it something I said or something I did? Did my words not come out right? Though I tried not to hurt you-Though I tried-But I guess that's why they say....

21)I bought a ticket to the world, But now I've come back again. Why do I find it hard to write the next line? When I want the truth to be said.......

22)I need someone to show me-The things in life that I can't find-I can't see the things that make true happiness-I must be blind

23)A boy is born in hard time Mississippi-Surrounded by four walls that ain't so pretty

24)Think of me-You know that I'd be with you if I could-I'll come around to see you once in a while-Or if I ever need a reason to smile

25)All alone at the end of the of the evening-And the bright lights have faded to blue

26)Old Man He And His Dog They Walk The Old Land-Every Flower Touched His Cold Hand-As He Slowly Walked By-Weeping Willows Would Cry For Joy

27)God only knows, God makes his plan-The information's unavailable to the mortal man. We work our jobs, collect our pay-Believe we're gliding down the highway when in fact we're.......

28)You get a shiver in the dark It's raining in the park but meantime -South of the river you stop and you hold everything

29)Well, Romeo and Juliet, Samson and Delilah -Baby you can bet a love they couldn't deny -My words say split, but my words they lie

30)I been everywhere, and I'm standing tall-I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all..

SO MUCH FUN! Thank you for putting these together.

dguzman said...

4 is by Jennifer Warnes
12 is by John Sebastian
13 is by Andrew Gold
and isn't 14 the theme song from Family Ties!? Or is it Step by Step? Either way, like Patrick, I can't believe you went there, dude.

24. I can't think of the title, but isn't it by Nillson? I can sing the whole song but don't know the title! "Seeing You"?! I don't know!

Larry said... haven't used your site yet but it may come in handy in the future.

Ruthiej-Good to see you joining in on the fun.-thumbs up on surfbird-not sure about the Eddy Arnold-I'll check.

Lynne-I'm glad to do it Lynne-thanks-and you are correct in your Glenn Campbell guess which is surpsing since you are up north during the day-hint!

dzugman-Nice additions for 4, 12, and 13-14-you're close but no cigar.24-seeing you is definitely part of the song.If only you could guess the whole thing-it would be like being in Utopia!(hint)
