George isn't here yet (though I expect to see him soon), but I'm going to steal one of his old games. As a clue, give the first five words (give or take a couple of words) of a song, be it pop, rock or Broadway. (We have no restrictions here on musical taste.) The first person to correctly guess what song the lyrics are from gets to give the next clue. I'll start with an easy one:

I want to say "So What" from Cabaret, but those aren't actually the opening lyrics.

All I can think of is When I was a girl I used to scream and shout, but that's a play (by Sharman MacDonald, mother of Kiera Knightley fwiw)

That's okay, @JustTheOneAnne! I think we can survive for an hour or two without an answer. ;)

I'm not sure @JustTheOneAnne qualifies as a kid anymore. I met her last fall and I swear she was almost as tall as me. ;)
