I give the lyric, You ID the artist and song


Recommended Posts

OK, three more:

(1) and you've just had some kind of mushroom

(2) I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine

(again with the strawberries! :rolleyes: )

OK, those two are easy. This one is more obscure, and may be the shortest song of the game:

(3) a little piece o' cheese, and a little piece o' meat

I think #2 is "Today" perfromed by John Denver. I'm shaky on the title but it was on his live album from the universal ampitheater in the mid-70s.

You got the title right. I'd forgotten John Denver recorded that song, but I may still have it around somewhere! At least one group recorded it in the, erm, early (I think) 60's. Anyone?

No googling here, actually think I remember this being Bongwater, from the album Too Much Sleep. Don't remember the name of the song. If that ain't it, they ripped off Bongwater!!!!

How about:

You'd already sogged up a whole plate of potato chips,

but the management didn't mind, because you were a regular customer.

Here's a few more:

1) lately I have been spotted With a Big Mac on my breath

2) Strawberries cherries and an angel´s kiss in spring

3) And Papa said to Mama as he passed around the blackeyed peas

4) I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine

#4: Isn't it good? Norwegian Wood...The Beatles

Also, for the record

Eat a lot of peaches is, in fact, John Prine, Spanish Pipe Dream. One of my favorites from him.

Give my stomach to Milwaukee.. is also Prine (Please Don't Bury Me Down in the Cold, Cold Ground)

Clickin' by your house... is Tom Waits' Ice Cream Man. I love the song but confess I really wanted to use Swordfishtrombone...

Can anyone get the rest?

The others listed here have been gotten, or at least partially, upthread. Here's a summary, with a couple of gaps filled in:

#1 is "Junk Food Junkie" - I had that - author/singer was Larry Groce.

#2 is "Summer Wine", Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood (not Lee somebody as I'd written earlier)

#3 is "Ode to Billie Joe", Bobbie Gentry, already stated upthread (by others) after several near misses.

Is that Ray Stevens' "Ahab the Arab"? :cool: That Fatima, whom he snuck off to visit in the middle of the night, had a powerful appetite. I don't remember the chitterlings, but the rest sounds right. :laugh:
