Quiz 35 - Get On The Beers

Number Lyric
1 Time on my hands could be time spent with you
2 Talkin’ ‘bout missile love, Talkin’ 'bout J.F.K
3 But girl, you make it hard to be faithful
4 Well, I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes
5 And I take your boat out to the reach (Shine)
6 The priest is on the phone, Your father hit the wall
7 Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
8 I don’t have a job, I never liked them
9 Said livin in Queensland was not OK
10 Aw, come on Joe, you can always change your name
11 Where Renoir paints the walls
12 If you tell me your game Playing Solitaire
13 But you and I, we knew deep down, that ain’t really you
14 Words get tangled up in good intentions
15 Living and a working on the land
16 Her dog’s talking to me, but she’s out of reach
17 Click of your heels on the concrete
18 You send invitations I don’t want again
19 Light in your head and dead on your feet
20 Acting on your best behaviour
21 And nothing’s as precious as a hole in the ground
22 And when the band plays Hail to the Chief
23 Hail (hail) What’s the matter with your mind
24 In a room of silent hardiflex
25 Open your heart and I’ll play you a song. Come on, come on,
26 Although the temperature will rise and fall I’ll take it all
27 Cause I don’t want to leave the comfort of this place
28 La-da-de-da, la-da-de-da
29 With a ring around the bath and a cigarette butt in my beer
30 Oh-oh-oh come on fast, you can come on slow
31 Are you gonna break his heart, let him cry for the moon?
32 Don’t own no swimmin’ pool not even a colour TV
33 Watching the sunrise, and thinkin’ there could never be more
34 Now I’m back in the ring to take another swing
35 Crushed out his cigarette, And faded off to sleep
36 I’m mopin’ around streets late at night
37 Oh, Jennifer, you’re such a killer
38 Down at Dino’s Bar’n’Grill
39 Your bottom lip’s near dragging on the ground
40 Have mercy. A haw, haw, haw, haw, a haw.
41 He’s always laughing in the midst of power
42 Don’t come knockin’ 'round my door
43 Don’t take no rhythm, Don’t take no style
44 With some Puerto Rican girls that’s just dyin’ to meet you
45 Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.
46 Told him his feet stank and took him downtown
47 Stone, wanna buy five copies for my mother - yeah!
48 But the Bedouin, they brought out, The electric camel drum
49 Just try your best, Try everything you can
50 She said I had it comin’ to me but I wanted it that way

Number 8 is When You Walk In The Room by Paul Carrick.

(An earlier version by The Searchers is much better though)


12 is a Jackie Wilson song that I now have playing on repeat in my head but don’t know what it’s actually called (she’s allllllllri-ight, she’s allllllllri-ight…)

-edit- oh oh oh oh [trombone riff] oh oh oh oh [trombone riff]

14 is some easy listening number than I can’t pin down beyond those lyrics

Is 14 Lady in Red by Chris De Burgh?

Thanks to @simmo41 for the assist. I’m not proud of knowing this!

Thank you! That would have given me the shts for hours if no one got it.
