Mixed Up Manhatten Melodies

    Ok, time for a musical game.

    I'm going to post lyrics from a muppet song. Problem is, it got mixed up and you have to be the one to set it right! You also have to name the song title and who sung it.

    Example:

    The lovers, the dreamers, and me.
    Why are there so many
    And only illusions
    So we've been told
    Songs about rainbows?
    Some choose to believe it
    And what's on the other side
    Rainbows have visions
    Someday we'll find it
    Rainbows have nothing to hide
    I know they're wrong wait and see
    The rainbow connection

    Correct answer would be:

    Why are there so many
    Songs about rainbows?
    And what's on the other side
    Rainbows have visions
    And only illusions
    Rainbows have nothing to hide
    So we've been told
    And some choose to believe it
    I know they're wrong wait and see
    Someday we'll find it
    The rainbow connection
    The lovers, the dreamers and me

    The Rainbow Connection - Kermit the Frog

    The poster with the correct answer gets to do the next one!

    Got it? Next post starts the game!

    First Puzzle:

    When you know there's someone
    I can go through the motions, thats all I can do
    You can be on your own one frog team
    But its so much more fun
    you don't always need help
    But I can't get along without you.
    who will always be there.. to be part of your dream
    When you're all by yourself
    When you know there's someone

    What is the song name and singer?

    I think that's supposed to be "Can't Get Along Without You" by Kermit and Robin.

    Hint: Use Google

    Actually Beau, the rules state you have to put the lyrics in the correct order AND name the song and singer. Seeing how you finally straightened them out..

    You can post the next song!

    Go for it! ;)

    I'm sorry, Beth. I was away for a week and didn't see your last post. I'll check Google when I get a chance and see if I can find the correct order for those lyrics.

    Ok, I'll do another.

    Aet rof owt,
    and uoy rof em
    Owt rof aet,
    Em rof uoy


    Ok, a rather confusing one, but it an actual Muppet song sung by two Muppets. What song? What Muppets? and what are the words?

    Beth C Active Member


    I've been wondering where you drifted off too.. Muppets on the Move ended while you were gone and someone else took Kermit in the new Role Play. :( You make a good Kermit.

    Ok, Beau.. that song is Tea for two sung backwards by Rowlf and Lew Zealand. :)

    It was a funny skit.

    Me for you..
    and you for me.

    Several months later..........


    Can I post something?? Just it seems no one has said anything since July 30th. Here's one...

    A can corner fire feel in it street you
    And by fire getting going home its the warmed
    Its Christmas Feels find it like Love True Wherever You
  15. GelflingWaldo

    Is it It Feels Like Christmas by The Ghost of Christmas Present

    I think I got it but it does not fit quite right, some words are missing (marked in red), other you have don't fit into the song (listed below). But I can't think of any other song that fits, it so close I think it's right.

    It's in the singing of a street corner choir
    It's going home and getting warm by the fire
    It's true
    Wherever you find love
    It feels like Christmas

    Extra words: warmed fire can you feel it



    If I'm right, here is another one for you all to sink you teeth into:


    Someone else had a wish, but I had the most coat
    Then a butterfly wish that a lady and I had silk house
    But I was on a sea of stone.
    Now I wish that I see the color of all that I am,
    I wish I looked happy now


    I don't know the sky there goes down to the fair.
    I most of a butterfly can be silk but still a coat


    Now I have me,
    Now I don't have me,
    But I don't have a house of all happy sea of sky
    I have a stone of I
    But of the lady to be, I'm me.

    :confused:

    Someone else had a wish, but I had the most coat
    Then a butterfly wish that a lady and I had silk house
    But I was on a sea of stone.
    Now I wish that I see the color of all that I am,
    I wish I looked happy now

    I don't know the sky there goes down to the fair.
    I most of a butterfly can be silk but still a coat

    Now I have me,
    Now I don't have me,
    But I don't have a house of all happy sea of sky
    I have a stone of I
    But of the lady to be, I'm me.

    Allrighty here's the solution. Or as well as I can remember the song. It's Gonzo's Wishing Song

    I wish I had a coat of silk, the color of the sky.
    I wish I had a lady fair, and then a butterfly
    I wish I had a house of stone that looked down on the sea
    But most of all I wish that I was someone else but me.

    (Madeleine cheers up Gonzo)

    Now I don't have a coat of silk, but I still have the sky
    Now I don't have a lady, but there goes a butterfly
    Now I don't have a house of stone, but I can see the sea
    Now most of all I know that I am happy to be me.
    I'm happy to be me.

    Ok next song.

    Sun is full of laughter surprises, compares a spirit
    The life comes up and I dear feel it lift my gift
    It into me eyes with sweet, it fills me up with song
    No look fills the up of love and with that I belong
    Bless us all, who gather here
    The place family I hold can
    I family on path, everyday's knows home
    And every Earth will bring me back from where I roam

    So anyone know the answer??

    Sorry, old chum!! But...
    a) Havent seen the movie in years, which is a shame as it is a classic!
    b) I wasnt that far off...forgive me for saying warmed rather than warm. Though I was way off on some!!
  18. GelflingWaldo

    GelflingWaldo New Member

    That's ok, I understand. You weren't that far off, I still got it.

    Yup! Bless us all from MCC! Here's the real words...

    Life is full of sweet surprises
    Every day's a gift
    The sun comes up
    And I can feel it lift my spirit.
    Fills me up with laughter
    Fills me up with song
    I look into the eyes of love
    And know that I belong.

    Bless us all
    Who gather here
    The loving family we hold dear
    No place on Earth
    Compares with home
    And every path will
    Bring me back from where I roam.
    Bless us all with playful years
    With noise games and joyful tears
    We reach for you and we stand tall
    And in our prayers and dreams
    We ask you bless us all.
    We reach for you and we stand tall
    And in our prayers and dreams
    We ask you bless us all.

    (the extended version of course!!)
    OK, I got one...

    Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, good friends
    Time to now, its go cos
    Well that's OK, say I! Hey- but!
    We'll know you- cos I see very soon!
    (I see very soon)
    Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, good friends
    Just like tomorrow and today
    The blue the house and moon the big bear
    For you will be waiting to play and come
    And come to play
    Come to and play
    (Now bye!!)
