And there you have it. Multiple words are allowed.

wish
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

KathyB

How I wish we'd been asked.

A weekend in the country,
Peace and quiet.




KathyB

Uh oh-- should I have left "peace" or "country" instead?
I fully admit to not having thought this one out when I played it, and just thinking that there was bound to be another "quiet."

Bobster

Not to worry, there are several.

AND HONEST, I DIDN'T SEE ANY OTHER ANSWERS THE LAST TIME, REALLY!!!

*looks around*  Okay, going.

Inconspicuous, Sweeney was
Quick and quiet and clean, 'e was
Back of his smile, under his word
Sweeney heard music that nobody heard

Sweeney pondered and Sweeney planned
Like a perfect machine, he planned

Quote from: Chris L on Jul 11, 2017, 03:35 pm@scenicdesign71 seems to remember the old game pretty well, so I'm going to let him determine if multiple words are allowed. Until he weighs in, I'm going to rule that you can only use a single word as the next target, though that sequence of letters can be spread across multiple words in the response.

I remember multiple words being allowed, as long as those words were found in the same order in another song.
Was just about to say the same thing.   ;)

wish...

Phew, that's a relief. I was pretty sure as I remember playing ...and funny and fine in the old game.
Morals tomorrow

I'll give them new washing machine.

ANITA
What have they got there to keep clean?

ALL
I like the shores of America!

I honestly don't know if this fits the rules or not, but it's all I could think of.

That faraway shore's
Looking not too far.
We're following every star
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

Bobster

I don't need a lot,
Only what I got,
Plus a tube of greasepaint and a follow spot!

I'm a Broadway Baby,
Slaving at the five and ten,

It's called: what's your choice?
It's called: count to ten.
It's called: burn your bridges, start again.
You should burn them every now and then,
Or you'll never grow...

Absolutely fine as I understand it :)

Bobster

And it's water under the bridge that's all,
Just water under the bridge
Faded handwriting on the wall,
Just water under the bridge

One hand, one heart,
Even death won't part us now.

Bookman George

We may just be the best thing that has happened to us---
Kiddo...
Partner...
Another moment like this may not happen to us---

Leighton

Oh, if life were made of moments
Even now and then a bad one!
Self indulgence is better than no indulgence!

Chris L

Leapin' lizards! That's why I'm so bad!

Right!
Officer Krupke, you're really a square
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?
