A house... where?

In New Orleans... what's it called?

It's called the Riiii-iii-iiising Sunnnnnnn... what's it been?

It's been the ruin of many a poor boy... who's a prat?

Oh God, I know, I'm one!

Take me out tonight

Take me anywhere, I don't care

I don't care, I don't care

And in the darkened underpass

I thought Oh God, my chance has come at last

(But then a strange fear gripped me and I

Just couldn't ask)

Take me out to the ball game

Take me out to the park

Buy me some peanuts and Crackerjacks

I don't care if we never get back

For it's root, root, root

For the home team

If they don't win it's a shame

For it's one, two, three strikes you're out

At the ol' ball game!

 

American homage to baseball (don't remember who wrote it but the tune is still played at baseball games)

 

Sorry, couldn't resist! :D

Well the next round HAS to be Monty Python but I can only remember correctly the first line but if someone out there wants to add some more PLEASE do!!

 

Oh he's a lumberjack and he's OK

 

(Does it now go)

 

He sleeps all night and he works all day

He wears women's clothing

Just like his dear old ma

 

(then something like)

 

suspenders and a bra

 

(Oh I give up - but that's the next song!!!)

Considering the holy rollers seem to have taken over the country, you're probably right. Have lived here since before 9/11 so can't say for sure. :rolleyes:

Been to a handful of games since 9/11, and the 7th inning stretch was the same as it always was; "Take me out to the ball game"

The Kinks

 

Nights in white satin

never reaching the end.

Letters I've written

never meaning to send.

Beauty I'd always missed

with these eyes before.

Just what the truth is

I can't say anymore

Perhaps it was only the season following 9/11. I could have sworn that's what they sang during the last World Series - unless that's before the game not during.

 

"We're playing those mind games together,

Pushing barriers, planting seeds,

Playing the mind guerilla,

Chanting the Mantra peace on earth,

We all been playing mind games forever,

Some kinda druid dudes lifting the veil."

 

I don't wish to be curmudgeonly, but isn't it missing the point to use one of the words from the title? How does that make it different to Song Chain?

To answer MD&G's point, I think the difference is that by quoting a lyric (usually a bit more than just the title) you are opening up wider possibilities for the next link. I generally prefer not to use a word from the title, but sometimes a word pops up and you just have to use it!

 

And thanks, Deino, for making the 2 very valid points re F Mac and J Lennon!

 

Right, then, moving on...

 

I know what my mind is going through

You know my mind is going through it too

Through it too, going through it too,

And you know my mind is going through it too

Woke up this morning feelin' fine

There's something special on my mind

Last night I met a new girl in the neighbourhood, whoa yeah

Something tells me I'm into something good

My tea's gone cold, I'm wonderin why

I got out of bed at all.

Morning rain clouds out my window.

and I can't see at all.

Even if I could, it would all be gray,

but your picture on my wall:

it reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad

When the day is dawning

On a Texas Sunday morning

How I long to be there

With Marie who's waiting for me there

Every lonely city where I hang my hat

Ain't as half as pretty as where my baby's at

I don't know you anymore

I don't recognize this place

The picture frames have changed and so has your name

We don't talk much anymore

We keep running from the pain

But what I wouldn't give to see your face again
