Looks like we have a new King of the Song Lyrics game.:icon_toast:
In honor of Elvis' birthday today... I'll post some Elvis songs in a little while
Elvis Presley Song Lyrics
The following 20 songs are popular Elvis Presley songs. Guess the title of the songs.
1. Mama she done told me,
Papa done told me too
'Son, that gal your foolin' with,
She ain't no good for you'
2. We're lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
3. You fooled me with your kisses
You cheated and you schemed
Heaven knows how you lied to me
You're not the way you seemed
4. How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
'Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away
5. I don't wanna be a tiger
Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be a lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind
6. Shifty Henry said to Bugs, "For Heaven's sake,
no one's lookin', now's our chance to make a break."
Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, "Nix nix,
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks."
7. Well, I used to pull your pigtails
And pinch your turned-up nose
But you been a growin'
And baby, it's been showin'
8. You give me hope and consolation
You give me strength to carry on
And you're always there to lend a hand
In everything I do
9. It's coming closer
The flames are reaching my body
Please won't you help me
I feel like I'm slipping away
10. Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
11. I've searched and I've searched
But I couldn't find
No way on earth
To gain peace of mind
12. Don't stop thinking of me,
don't make me feel this way,
Come on over here and love me,
you know what I want you to say.
13. So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D.
But in early next morning
it came right back to me.
14. Here we go again
Asking where I've been
You can't see these tears are real
15. Mmm, I said come on over baby,
we got chicken in the barn
Whose barn, what barn, my barn
Come on over baby,
16. Please don't ask me what's on my mind
I'm a little mixed up, but I'm feelin' fine
When I'm near that girl that I love best
My heart beats so it scares me to death!
17. I heard about a king
who was doin' swell
till he started playing
with that evil Jezebel.
18. Here and now dear,
All my love,
I vow dear
Promise me that you will leave me never
19 Yeah they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
And you ain't no friend of mine
20. You can knock me down, step on my face
Slander my name all over the place.
Do anything that you wanna do
But uh uh honey lay off of my shoes.

Well done, y'all!! :icon_toast:
I've been lookin for my Elvis CDs all day and can't find them...Got one more place to look...
Cheers mate. you're the best in this one with 20/20
Got a walk, got a list, got a hall of fame
I've got an asterisk next to your name
Grab a cup, drink it up, make a battle plan
Are we ever up to the task at, to the task at hand?
If I get drunk, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you.
And if I haver, yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you.
You paint your smile on your lips
Blood red nails on your fingertips
A school boys dream, you act so shy
Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye
'Cause the moment that he's with me, time can take a flight
The moment that he's with me, everything's alright
Night time is the right time, we make love
Then it's his and my time, we take off
You can have my isolation
You can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith
You can have my everything
Asend the aimless sleep
Unfettered by the help of transportation
To knock on windows where
A freind no longer live I had forgotten
I can’t escape myself,
So many times I’ve lied,
But there’s still rage inside,
Somebody get me through this nightmare,
I can’t control myself.
I know what nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody sin
You got to lose to know how to win
So look, And connect,
We're refusing to rust,
Healing has to begin, In the past.
Well he's tellin' us this And he's tellin' us that
Changes it every day Say's it doesn't matter
Bases are loaded and Casey's at bat
Playin' it play by play
Time to change the batter
Staring straight up into the sky
Of my mind
A solar system that fits in your eye
Violent eyes but hands like a steeple
Tell me lies with a tongue like a needle
And every word's shot down my throat
A face like an iron fist that I could never resist
I learned it all by rote
I time every journey to bump into you, accidentally
I charm you and tell you of the boys I hate
All the girls I hate
All the words I hate
All the clothes I hate
How I'll never be anything I hate
Is this how you wanna go down, right before my eyes
You're the saddest sight i know
You're quiet you never make a sound
But here inside my mind you are the loudest one I know
Look into my eyes and it's easy to see
One and one make two,
two and one make three,
It was destiny.
All of my life
I've been waiting for someone to love
All of my life
I've been waiting for something to love
With my teeth locked down I can see the blood
Of a thousand men who have come and gone
Now we grieve cause now it's gone
Things were good when we were young
Zeig Heil to the president gasman
Bombs away is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel towers
Who criticize your government
Maybe the man up on capital hill
Be a little less Jack and a little more Jill
He can have my stereo
All born equal unless you're Canadian
Then halfway through decay like Uranium
You define what's death-defying
Get the most out of life or at the least die trying
2- I'm gonna be- The Proclaimers
3 Bon Jovi You give love a bad name
4 Shena Easton, My baby takes the morning train
10 Rocky Mountatin Way, I dont know the singer...
18 Green Day Holiday

Every number is a part of a song. Your task is to guess the song and the artist.
2. The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be - mdboltfan
3. Bon Jovi - You give love a bad name - Concudan
4. Shena Easton - My baby takes the morning train - Concudan
10 Rocky Mountatin Way 1/2 Concudan (Awaiting artist)
18. Green Day - Holiday - Concudan
Concudan - 3 1/2
mdboltfan - 1
I unnerstan that, but I've never seen those lyrics, or can't seemta put'em together :no: :icon_sad:
I did make this round a bit harder than I usually do.
Any more guesses?
I'm having some problems with these too.........maybe it's just 'cuz I'm old and haven't heard most of 'em? I got the one by Bon Jovi ("You Give Love a Bad Name") but don't think I know any of the others. How friggin' embarrassing.........
5, 8, 11, and 15 shouldn't be too hard.
I thought 15 was going to be guessed right away.
#5 is Nine Inch Nails - Closer (f**k you like an animal)
#8 Aerosmith - Dream On
#11 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Parallel Universe
Separate names with a comma.
