I don't think you can run the words backwards. That would add another layer of difficulty if you could either go backwards or forwards.

How about this:

does he rebuckle his knickerbockers

If it helps, you don't have to do exactly five words. That's just a ballpark figure. At least that's how we treated it on the old FTC.

"Trouble" from The Music Man





Only you, beneath the moon

Leighton

Night and day, you are the one
Only you beneath the moon, under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It's no matter darlin', where you are


Night and Day

I think that's Synchronicity by The Police. There may be a version number (3?) after it but I can't recall exactly.

"Synchronicity 2," but I didn't expect anyone to remember the number. ;)

Point of order, point of order...these are not lyrics but spoken in the song.  Is that permissible in this game?

I hate to say it, but you're right. Although a great deal of "Trouble" is clearly scored, that line is spoken. So that puts us back to...uh, you, Bobster?

Since Bobster was reluctant to play a line before, I'll use Martin's, though I don't know what they're from. (Guess I should google them.)

Before you do, a clue - the title is a question.

I googled it and know what it is, so I'm recusing myself. But it's still open for everybody else.

This is driving me crazy, because I know I know it.

MartinG

It's a duet, if that helps.
