Or, feel free to share your honest feedback about my blog’s new digs.
But first…just for fun…how many of these thirteen beginning lyrics can you match to the artist/group and song title? Some are more popular than others. C’mon. Go for it!
Here are the lines…

2. “Nibblin’ on sponge cake, watchin’ the sun bake.”
3. “Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?”
4. “I stay out too late, got nothing in my brain, that’s what people say.”
5. “Well she was just seventeen–you know what I mean?”
6. “Gonna put the world away for a minute, pretend I don’t live in it.”
7. “Tommy used to work on the docks.”
8. “What would I do without your smart mouth?”
9. “She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene.”
10. “I looked out this morning and the sun was gone.”
11. “You never close your eyes any more when I kiss your lips.”
12. “I have climbed the highest mountain, I have run through the fields , only to be with you.”
13. “On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair.”
