Song to Save Your Life

You have been captured and a gunman will set you free if you complete his oddly specific task.

Sing any song of your choosing correctly from start to finish.
No nursery rhymes, no hymns, no Happy Birthday or suchlike, and no songs where the lyrics are one line, or even one word (well done for thinking laterally, but if you annoy him with your choice he’ll shoot you anyway).

If you choose a song with a repeated chorus at the end, you have to get the number exactly right.
Fade-outs and ad libs, too.
No variation from the actual lyrics, such as an ‘and’ instead of ‘so’ are acceptable, and no hesitation.

So what’s your song?

Edit: Oh, and I probably should have mentioned, you don’t get musical accompaniment.

Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine.
He’ll especially love my rendition of ‘Fark you I won’t do what you tell me.’

Brave choice.
There’s a lot of repetition there.
You’ve got the form down pat?

I think I’m dead

Five feet high and rising by Johnny Cash.

The whole song follows the same pattern, and you know that you start at two feet and end at five.

It’s probably the only song where I do know all the lyrics pretty well.

I doubt he’d appreciate the only Italian song I know the lyrics of…

Just tested myself on sweet child o mine. I walk free from the gunman.

Its not as easy as I thought. A bunch of songs that I love I know I have parts of the song where I get vague. I’ve always deliberately done this though because when I know a song precisely I lose the enjoyment somehow.

lol.
What was your song?

Tequila by the Champs.
Only one word - said three times throughout the song.

Ah, right.
Gotta follow the rules.

Indeed - those pesky finer details.

It’s a fun game.
How many songs do you know?
‘Oh, heaps.
Thousands.
Well…it’s gotta be hundreds, I mean…
Zero. I know zero songs.’

I cheated on the musical accompaniment.

Plus I got one word wrong actually

I say

Now and then when I see her face
IT takes me away to that special place

But correctly its:

SHE takes me away to that special place

Bullet in the head for me.
