Song lyrics quiz.

Postby filsgreen » Sat Dec 10, 2016 3:31 am

I thought that I'd start a new quiz, where you have to guess the song from the lyric.

Here is my offering.

"Don't you love farce? My fault I fear. I thought you'd want want what I'd want, sorry my dear."*

With thanks to Stephen Sondheim. *

Excellent post Phil, sorry to hear about your friend but as regards the Forum I completely agree with your thoughts. In the "real world", if you dislike or are offended by a person you don't seek out their company and you don't go to places where you don't like the regulars. Why behave any differently on line?

Great suggestion for a thread; well done Lils, I think you've got it!

Thanks Lily, Bee and Keith.

Lily, you are of course correct, your turn. may I suggest that you credit the writer of the song if possible? It gives us a clue and it also helps to cover copyright laws, as we are reproducing without permission from the owners of the material. We wouldn't want to get Mack in trouble :D. There again maybe it is allowed, what are your thoughts, Mack?

Only just ready this thread Phil. Sometimes it's easier to put emotions on paper and if it helps that's fine by me. Don't think anyone was offended and even so under the circumstances that's OK. Likewise you Keith, no issue. Ken

Mike, I think that before you post a question you have to get the previous one right (and have your answer verified as correct by whoever sets the question) so at present we're waiting for Philrob to tell filsgreen to go.
BTW yours is POISON IVY....

The song is IT'S ALL OVER NOW BABY BLUE but I can only recall Dylan and Joan Baez recordings (in the mid 60s).
