Bird- Song Lyrics Game

For each of the lyrics listed below, name the song and artist.

1)Well you knew all along-That your dad was gettin' wise to you now.

2)If you hear that same sweet song again-will you know why? Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passing by

3)There’s a little bird Somebody sent down to earth -To live along the wind -Blowing on the wind

4)And butterflies are free to fly-Fly away, high away, bye bye

5)But please don’t take it badly-cause lord knows I’m to blame.

6)Can't get a red bird, blue bird'll do.

Hi Larry,
Up early to do some birding. Took a look at your posts and I only konw 2 of them off hand.
#4 is "Someone Saved My Life Tonight" Elton John.
#5 is the classic rock anthem, "Free Bird" Lynard Skynyrd.

you've got them.The other ones are ones that I wouldn't get-except for number 1 and 6.
Two of the others are by young female singers, and one by a 60's-80's psychedelic band.

After a 2nd look I believe #3 is by Jewel and is called something like "Little Bird."

Is number 6 "Skip to My Lou"?
That melody pops into my head.

1. Beach Boys/ Fun Fun Fun(til her daddy takes her t-bird away)

the rest are stumpers!

Every one has been answered but 2 and 7.
Try to guess the artist if not the song on these.-googling is permited for the rest.

-2)Is by a band whose leader had an ice cream flavor from Ben & Jerry's named after him.-(I would never have known the song though).
7)-Female singer who has had a lot of hits over the past 10 or so years.-She kind of took over Whitney Houston's spot.-I'm not familiar with her songs either.

The next time I do this, I am going to have to forget about songs with birds in the title and come at it in a different way.-

2 is Jerry Garcia/ Greatful Dead but I can't get the title in my head. (I wasn't a Deadhead!!)

Larry said...

You are right about 2-The name of the song is Bird Song Lyrics.

When guessing number 7 -you better be wary-the name of the singer is.....
