Song Trivia


Recommended Posts

Got this emailed to me. Not even sure myself as to what all the answers are. I'm sure that together we can get every one.

You have to tell me the name of the person who is being referred to....and bonus points if you can tell me the name of the song! No cheating by googling the lyrics. See how many you really know.

1-he sells cartoon balloons in town

2-he works at the grocery store, saving his pennies for someday

3-she puts on the red light and sells her body to the night

4-she is a seamstress for the band

5-he has a barrow in the market place

6- he won’t be down on wall street in the morning

7-he works at Mister Cacciatores down on Sullivan Street across from the medical center

8-he's a stock car boy, the best driver in the land

9-he was asking only workman’s wages, he came lookin’ for a job, but he got no offers just a comeon from the whores on 7th avenue

10-he worked with minstrel shows travelling throughout the south

11-he left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreams

12-he's in the navy and probably will be for life

13-he takes the morning train, he works from nine till five

14-she was quizzical, studied metaphysical science in the home

15-he wears the crown, he's the king around town

16-she was filling in a ticket in her little white book, in a cap she looked much older

17-he is writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear

18-he paints his palette blue and gray

19-he's gonna rate your record high

20-she plays the piano every Friday at the Hollywood

21-he came to town spreading wisdom and cash around, fed the starving and housed the poor

22-he had a straight job even though he could have smashed through any bank in the United States

23-he's a real estate novelist who never had time for a wife

24-she said, God made her a sinner just to keep fat men thinner

Ginny, Molly is a singer in a band. :D

but lord knows I could've been wrong, so I looked it up:

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band

Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man

Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand

And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
