"Watcha gonna do when you get out of jail? I'm _____ ___ ____ ____..."

At  "Don't Forget The Lyrics," you'll have fun. Last time, Melody Butu ran into a $50,000 brick wall for $25,000, while Michael Rehn took it straight from the sewer for $200,000. Now we're "gonna have some fun" right now.

Up first, Patrick Kramer of Columbia, SC. He's a comic book fan who knows "Who Wants to Be A Superhero," but now he's in the karoke version of "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?" Let's look at the subjects:

ROCK                        1980'S

POP                           MOTOWN

R&B                           DUETS


                    BREAK-UP SONGS

Flying to his first one: Rock. With 2 songs, they are:

  • Show me the Way-Peter Frampton

  • Shout-Tears for Fears

HE gets Shout. Let's do it!

Let it all out
These are things I can do without
Come On
I'm...STOP! I'm What?

Patrick's answer: Talking to you. Talk to me, somebody! He locks it in....CORRECT! His next plan: Pop. Here's the 2...

  • Private Eyes-hall & Oates

  • Right Back to Where we started From-Maxine NIghtengale

He gets Private Eyes. Why did he not get the one from "Slap Shot?" Anyway, here it is...

I see you, you see me
watch you blowin' the lines when you're making a scene
Oh girl, you've got to know
what my head overlooks
the senses will show to my heart
when it's watching for lies
you can't escape my

Private Eyes...FREEZE IT!

Patrick's answer: they're watching you. As he locks it in, he watches for the green....YES! His next move: TV Themes. Oh boy, we're gonna have fun with these:

  • Good Times

  • All in the Family

He gets Good times. Let's tune in.

Good Times.
Any time you meet a payment. - Good Times.
Any time you need a friend. - Good Times.
Any time you’re out from under.
Not getting hassled, not getting hustled.
Keepin’....STOP! Where?

Patrick's answer: your head above water. He makes a big splash....CORRECT!

What's the next category? 1980's. Let's have the 2 songs up.

  • Karma Chamelon-Culture Club

  • I'm So Excited-POinter Sisters

He gets I'm so Excited. So do I. Let's go!

Tonight's the night we're gonna make it happen,
Tonight we'll put all other things aside.
Give in this time and show me some affection,
We're going for those pleasures in the night.

I want to love you, feel you,
Wrap myself around you.
I want to squeeze you, please you,
I just can't get enough,
And if you...STOP! Do what?

Patrick's answer: move real slow, I'll let it go. But he wants to use his 2 words to make sure. I'll and go are right as he locks it in......YES! What's his next move? Break-up Songs. You get 2 of them:

  • She's Not There-The Zombies

  • Don't Leave me this way-Thelma Houston

He gets the Zombie song. We're not in zombie mode like Playmania. We're off!

Well no one told me about her the way she lied
Well no one told me about her how many people cried
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know why should I care
Please don't bother tryin' to find her
She's not there

Well let me tell you 'bout the way she looked
The way she'd....STOP! She what?

Patrick's answer: act and the color of her hair. But he locks it in....and she's there to say....CORRECT! The next category: Duets. They are:

  • Unforgettable

  • Mockingbird

He gets Unprofess, er, Unforgettable. Let's go.

Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you...Ok, STOP! What's the answer?

Patrick's answer: Does things to me....well, he decides to use a backup for help. He calls out 3 lines. He calls out b which is....does things to me Never before has someone been more. Never said it better himself. He locks it in....SCORE!  The next category: Motown. He's got 2 songs.

  • Superstition-Stevie Wonder

  • I Second that Emotion-Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

He gets Superstition. Let's go!

Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past

When you believe in things that you don't understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain't the way

Very superstitious, wash your face and hands
Rid me of the problem, do all that you can...WINTERIZED!

Patrick's answer: If you believe in things that you don't understand. Uh-huh, I was thinking he'd take a shortcut to the chorus. He decided to call out Lally who answers: You gotta take that money and run. Bailout, perhaps? Well, yes, he did at $100,000. Here's the answer: Keep me in a daydream, keep me goin' strong. We're going strong now as we continue with Tony Gubelman from MA, who is a mailman. See if he can deliver like Karl Malone with these categories:

ROCK                     ROCK ANTHEMS
POP                       DUETS
R&B                       DISCO
1970'S                    BREAK-UP SONGS
             BILLY JOEL

And we're ready. He chooses the 70's first. They are:

  • How sweet it is-James taylor

  • Kiss you all over-Exile

He gets the JT song. Not Justin Timberlake. Let's go!

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were
With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and...FROZEN PIZZA! And do what?

Tony's answer: Thank you baby. And as he locks it in, you can thank your lucky stars, because he is RIGHT! His next move: Break-up Songs. He gets to choose 1 of 2:

  • You're so Vain-Carly Simon

  • No Time

I was thinking "Time" by Hootie & The Blowfish, but he gets "you're so vain." Let's go!

You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and

You're so vain
You probably think this...THIS WHAT?!

Tony's answer: song is about you. But it's all about money as he locks it in....YES! What's the next category? R&B. The 2 ones are:

  • Too Hot-Kool & The Gang

  • You make me feel brand new-The Stylistics

He gets the 2nd song. Let's roll!

My love I'll never find the words my love
to tell you how I feel my love
mere words can not explain
precious love you held my life within your hands
created everything I am taught me how to live again. 

Only you cared when I needed a friend (oh)
believed in me through thick and thin (alright, alright)
this song is for you filled with gratitude and love

God bless you (oh, oh)
you make me feel brand new (ohhhh)
for God blessed..WHO?

Tony's answer: Me and you. Very sweet, but he uses the 2 words to make sure. Me and you are right, but the 3 lines might do him some justice, and locks it in with C which is: Me with you. And that is.....CORRECT! He's going with "Billy Joel" next on the menu and they are:

  • Piano Man

  • We Didn't Start the Fire

He gets Piano Man. We're off!

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
the regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Makin' love to his tonic and gin
He say, Son can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes
Da da da de de da
da da de de da da da
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got...GOT WHAT?

Tony's answer: me feeling alright. But it is alright for $25K? He locks it in...and we dissect it....alright is.....RIGHT! And feelin' is....GOOD! but is me for the money.....NO!  What's the asnwer: us feelin' alright. So it's return to sender for Tony as we close the show. Tune in again for more wacky, outrageous fun.  it's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.
