Maybe it's one of those "you had to be there" jokes.

But I always think about that joke the first time I go bike riding every spring.

:)

*would not want to be there for "numnumnumnum"*

*spews monitor at hysterically funny joke*

OK, now where are we??? song-wise, that is...
*scrolls back up*

There is no way to know, so I will invoke paragraph 437, Section 5(g), subsection 13(y), line 27 of the by-laws and begin game anew!


Glory, glory hallelujah - oh wait, I don't think that's the title - do over -

Star-Spangled Banner (on your feet, people!)

Um, Eleanor -- Glory, glory hallelujah is the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

That other one is what they play at baseball games. Has "ramparts" in the lyrics, you know the one.

Which one were you going for?

sandy - I knew that :) well, not exactly - after i did the Glory thing, I thought the name of the song was "His Truth is Marching On", and then I decided I didn't like that -too religious - so I made a switch to the Sports Anthem avec (as Marie would say) ramparts - glad you asked??? :)

*hopes sandy was standing while posting, as am I*

If you had known that the actual title was about warfare, would you have stuck with it?

Since I did not actually type the title of the national anthem, I don't believe I was required to stand. But I did remove my hat, which is worth something.

Since you didn't ask, I'll also tell you that I feel free to omit "under God" when saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

But note in the title sandy, that it's a Hymn - so that would make it a hymn (religious by definition) about warfare - some might say that's an oxymoron, but then that would lead us into a discussion of War in the Name of Religion, so I won't go there!

How about a song title??? :)

Oh all right then. Go easy on me--I've never played this game before!

Star-Spangled Banner

Row, row, row your boat

How was that?

PERFECT!!!

Row, Row, Row Your Boat


Time after Time

So that's all there is to it? Even I can play this game then.

Time after Time

Until Lab changes the rules!

We'll Be Together Again

Not In This Lifetime

sandy, if you return here you will notice that neo likes to have a "theme" running through the songs - and she's very good at it!

so I'll leave the next one for you!

Not In This Lifetime

Enough Is Enough

Enough Is Enough

How Cold Hearted Can You Get

How Cold-hearted Can You Get

Timothy

(for those who remember the Bad Song Survey ... I'm re-reading the book... a song about 3 trapped miners, two of whom eat the other. Classy guys.)

You Know You're (not your) Right

Then the Morning Comes

Cure for the Itch

Cure for the Itch

Itchin' For Your Twitchin'

Ahh, I knew it couldn't be that easy.

Itchin' For Your Twitchin'

Twitch and a Nod

Sandy, I believe that the rules state that you may choose either the first letter of the last word, or the last letter of the last word as the first letter of the next title.(Whoosh, that sounds more complicated than it is.)

There is no real reason to stick with a theme; I just have too much time on my hands. And (shhh! don't tell anyone) since I have to cheat and look up song titles anyway, I might as well look for titles that somehow relate to each other.

Twitch and a Nod
Nod Ya Head

Nod Ya Head

Head Over Feet

There Goes My Head

Detachable Penis

St. Elmo's Fire

Sly, the numnumnum joke reminds me of a different doctor that was doing a checkup on a well-endowed young female. He says:

"And now I'll have to weigh your breasts, is that OK?"

"Sure", she says.

Grabbing both and groping he says:

"Weigh Hey HEY!"

*wanders in after a busy weekend*

Looks like everybody came back to play! Cool. 'cept you all made a MESS. Sheesh.

*runs off to find all-night cleaning supply warehouse*

Detachable Penis???

Joshkr, I challenge!

Waddaya mean there are no challenges in this game? It's on page 57, Subsection T, paragraph 4: When a player lists a song that is patently made up, the other players may "challenge." If the song cannot be proven, the player who listed the erroneous song will be forced to do whatever the title of the made-up song suggested. In this case, set St. Elmo's fire on your detatchable penis.

***Warning!***

Anybody clicking on Alex's link above...
-When it asks if you want to install "Free Lyrics Access (blah blah blah...)"
-Click No
-When it says "You must click yes to continue"
-Click Cancel

It is trying to install what is, I'm 99.9% sure, spyware. In fact whenever IE asks about installing ANYTHING unexpectedly, always say no (Alex may have a good pop-up blocker and didn't see it)

Oh, and after clicking Cancel you can still see the lyrics which prove my innocence and save my detachable penis :)

Josh, I always say "no" to my computer, too. I find it helpful, though, if I actually click the "no" button while saying it.

YMMV

It won't let me see any lyrics unless I install. There is no "no" option to click. But since Alex vouches for you Joshkr, I withdraw my challenge.
Reluctantly.

I'm sure that Detatchable Penis must be one of the great love songs for the ages. Especially when combined with St. Elmo's Fire. (Which I know isn't fire, but it works so much better if you think of it as real flames) Since I can't view they lyrics, I have written my own:


I wanted to get off
When I got excited
Instead the thing came off,
And now it's ignited.

FWIW, coffee is better swallowed than spewed.

Correllarry: (my view: if you can't spell it, make it funny looking) Attempting to stiffle a spew and force a swallow hurts.

YMMV? Lab, could you please translate? I've been pondering, but I can't figure it out.

St. Elmo's Fire

Fried Chicken and Gasoline

Hmmm...I've got all sorts of software to block that stuff. Sorry. I'm pretty sure this one is harmless, if you want to see the words to "Detachable Penis." Seriously, it IS a song!

St. Elmo's Fire

Falls Apart

Aw, crap. Missed. Take two:

Going Down in Flames

!!!!!!!

*speechless over the real lyrics*

Going Down in Flames

Fire and Brimstone


(meanwhile, in another window, my computer is still stuck trying to post the Fried Chicken and Gasoline song)

(meanwhile, in another widow, my detachable penis is stuck, but while tying me to the post she forgot about the Dried Pickings of Boogers left there from so long.)

Anyone hungry now?

Fire and Brimstone

Boys Of Summer

(Neo--liked your lyrics better)

Boys Of Summer

Summer in the City

Summer in the City


Catch a Falling Star


(I'm glad the whole detachable-penis thingy was straightened out while I was gone - wht a commotion - and I'm not linking to whatever, but I still don't believe it's a song!) :)

Carry on.

Catch a Falling Start

Reminds Me of You

I've seen the lyrics El, but they are decidedly weird. Its a bit after the idea of that commercial where the guy's tongue goes wandering off to a party to taste a particular brand of beer.

Reminds Me of You

You Can Have My Heart

You can have my heart, 'cause it's empty anyhow
And you can have my mind, because it's only full of you
And you can have my memories, 'cause you're all I can remember
But you can't have my member (unless I get re-membered)
...'cause my member got detatched when I was searching for a...

Hmmm, how should I complete this song? When singing about a detatchable penis, what would a man be looking for, that rhymes with "you"?
.
.
.
.

Oh! I've got it!


when I was searching for a Grue!

You Can Have My Heart

Heart in the Right Place

*swoon*

Simulpost with Neo!

Or perhaps recast it as:

"...'cause my member got detatched when it was bitten by a Grue"

Or perhaps:

"...'cause my member got detatched by a giant kangaroo"

or

"...'cause my member got detatched by a bout of asiatic flu"

or

"...'cause my member got detatched and fell in the veal cordon bleu"

or

"...'cause my member got detatched and fell in the chocolate fondue"

Wysi, we simulled? Right out here in public? *blushes*

*enjoys the afterglow*

*still fanning self*

perhaps:

"...'cause my member got detatched when I simulposted you"

ah, I knew I was close, but no cigar.

But now, this is the real banana:

...'cause my member got detatched when I was searching for das Grue.

*realizes she has just spent an entire hour trying to say "screw" without actually saying it*

*realizes how very lame this is*

*decides she doesn't care*

CAR!

"screw" was too obvious and easy - I thought you were avoiding it on purpose to out double-entendre me.

Mind if I have the first go in the Chocolate fondue? I seem to have lost something of mine in there....

I WAS avoiding the easy screw on purpose. But I could tell I was SO close to what I needed with the Grue.

And of course you can help yourself to the chocolate. Unless you'd like me to help?

Just so you don't swallow anything precipitously...

Heart in the Right Place

Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey

...except my monkey is all chocolatety at the moment....

Was that an African or a European swallow.....

Was that a title Wysi, or are you just "hiding your monkey?" ;)


And you would think that somewhere I could find a picture of a Swallow laden with coconuts, but no!

Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey

Monkey Gone to Heaven

It was in fact a song title, and as close as I could get to a mention of what had fallen into it given the letters at my disposal - continuing the theme you see.....

Yes I know, and I have actually posted that song title before, on

Can't Satisfy

Ohhhhhh, SO many choices for this one.

You better run
You can't give up on love
You're driving me crazy

...but I think my best choice is:

Can't Satisfy

You gave me a mountain

You gave me a mountain

Mountains of Illinois

OR Mouthful of Air

Mountains of Illinois

I think I'm gonna like it here.....

(in the mountains that is....and outta here for the nite!)

p.s. DER! I only just got the Mouthful of Air!

*Snicker*

VERY excellent!

I think I'm gonna like it here

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Rats...I thought of the solution on the way home:

Mouthful of Air

Round and Round/Up Above My Head

(rimshot!)

But, to play fair:

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hard as a Rock.

Hard as a Rock

(You) Rocked Me All Night Long

PS... LTTG but the Detachable Penis Song was mentioned in a DB column a long time ago. It was in a column about radio stations that his son listened to that he didn't... *going to check DB book to find the column* The column is called "The Old-Timer's Game". It features on pg 197 of Dave Barry Is Not Making This Up. So even Dave's heard that one.

*feels proud that she remembered that, ignoring the fact that if she hadn't read it just the other day, she'd never had thought of it.*

While we're on the detachable member subject...

(You) Rocked Me All Night Long

Give It Back

Bring it Back

(oh, so many ways to go! But I seem to have celebrated Be Nasty day last night, so I'll go with something tamer today. Oh, to heck with it, no I won't.)

Bring Me the Head Of... (by Sugar Ray)

(and yes, the song ends with the " ..." but I'm guessing either O or F are the valid letters here)

Very impressive Eleanor.

Eleanor, Gee I think you're swell!

heh heh, Eleanor said "swell."

Eleanor, Gee I think you're swell!
