"Bells will be ringing, the glad glad news,
Oh what a Christmas to ____ ___ _____..."

It's still "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" I'm NOT Pierre Kelly (I'm Chico Alexander, the correspondent on the other karaoke-based game show), but lyrics fans, I guarantee you you won't "have the blues" as we take on the band together.

This is "Don't Forget The Lyrics." Once you master the art of the game, we'll "get to know you better." Last time, a piano man moved like Alicia Keys and a cop from Atlanta shot homeruns like Hank Aaron with some money. Now that we're reacquainted, we're off!

First up, Paul Vann from Lake City, FL. A Special Olympics coach who wants to let him win, baby. No, that's AL Davis. Anyways, shall we see the 9?.....

ROCK                 EASY LISTENING

POP                   ONE-HIT WONDERS

R&B                    GOING SOLO



His first move: R&B, and these:

  • Nightshift-The Commodores

  • Secret Lovers-Atlantic Starr

He gets Nightshift. here's the lyrics on the fly:

Marvin, he was a friend of mine
And he could sing a song
His heart in every line
Marvin sang of the joy and pain
He opened up our minds
And I still can hear him say
Aw talk to me so you can see
What's going on
Say you will sing your songs
Forevermore (evermore)

Gonna be some sweet sounds, coming.....STOP IT!

Paul's answer: Down on the nightshift. He locks it in....GET DOWN! He's right. Next one: Going solo. These are all lead singers going solo like these:

  • It Don't Come Easy-Ringo Starr

  • In the Air tonight-Phil Collins

He gets in the air tonight. Don't blow it, buddy!

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment, FREEZE IT!

Paul's answer: for all my life. He goes all in...DOUBLE UP! $5000, in fact. The 1960's is his next category and they are:

  • House of the rising sun-The Animals

  • I Can't Help Myself-The 4 Tops

He gets the 4 tops song. Let 'er spin!

Sugar pie, hoey bunch, you know that I love you....

I can't help myself, I who?

Paul's answer: You and Nobody else. He locks it in....CORRECT! One-hit wonders is his next category, see if he can knock him out the park with these:

  • Wildfire-Michael Murphy

  • Mickey-Toni Basil

He gets Mickey. Let's rock this joint!

Oh Mickey, you're so fine,
You're so fine, you blow my mind, Hey Mickey! Hey Mickey!
Oh Mickey, you're so fine,
You're so fine, you blow my mind, Hey Mickey! Hey Mickey!
Oh Mickey, you're so fine,
You're so fine, you blow my mind, Hey Mickey! Hey Mickey!

Hey Mickey!
You been around all night, And that's a little long
You think you got the right, but I think you got it wrong
Oh, can't you say "Good night"
So you can take me home, Mickey.

Cuz when you say you will, it always mean you won't
You're giving me the chills, baby, please, baby don't
Every night you spend the evening all alone, Mickey

Oh, Mickey what a pity you don't understand
You take me by the heart, when you take me...WHERE?

Paul's answer: by the hand. And he locks it in....hands down, it's right! What's next: Rock. See if these can rock out....

  • Hard to Handle-The black Crowes

  • Bohemian Rhapsody-QUeen

He gets Symphony my Mar, er, Hard to Handle. Let's go.

Baby here I am
I'm the man on the scene
I can give you what you want
But you gotta' come home with me

I have got some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get through throwin' it on
You gotta' come back for more


Boys and things that come by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drugstore lovin'
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm so hard to handle now
Yes I am.....STOP! Go Paul!

Paul's answer: Action speaks louder than words. he locks it in to take action......YES! What's next? Elton John. And they are:

  • Someone Saved My Life Tonight

  • Honky Cat

He gets Someone Saved My Life Tonight. Here we go.

When I think of those East End lights
Muggy nights
The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima Donna lord you really should have been there
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it's one more beer
And I don't hear you anymore
We've all gone crazy lately
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor

And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear...STOP! Uh-oh, someone got blankout. He uses his trusty friend jennifer, but does not know it. Maybe the 3 lines should help:

A-She almost sunk her hooks in me

B-You almost had your hooks in me

C-I almost had her hooks in me

He gets B, and burns his last one to make sure. He locks it in....Hook shot....good for $100,000. Legends will be his next choice and these:

  • Modern Love-David Bowie

  • Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey-Paul & Linda mcCartney

He gets Modern Love. Let's go modern!

I catch a paper boy
But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
But I never wave bye-bye
But I try, I try
There's no sign of life...STOP! He blanks out again....and bails out. Good point. What's the answer?: It's just the power to charm. But I got some Lucky Charms just in ime for our music Man Ricky Minor to ask Wayne for James Brown...and BANG! Instant Gratification. On to our next contestant from Montgomery, AL. Michelle Nivery dreams of becoming a wedding singer. Will that come true? See if these 9 help:

ROCK                       POP

R&B                         1980's


DISCO                      PARTY SONGS

             ROCK ANTHEMS

And up first: R&B. They are:

  • What's going on-Marvin Gaye

  • Solid-Ashford & Simpson

She gets What's going on...and it's on.

Mother, mother, there's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother, there's far too many of you dying
You know we'ver got to find a way
To bring...BRING WHAT?

Michelle's answer" some lovin' here today. And she locks it....YES! Her next move, Disco. And they are:

  • Rock the Boat-The Hues corp.

  • I'm your boogie Man-KC & The Sunshine Band

She gets Rock the Boat. Let's rock!

So I'd like to know where, you got the notion
said I'd like to know where, you got the notion

to rock the boat, don't rock the boat baby
rock the boat, don't...DO WHAT?

Michelle's answer: Rock the boat baby. She locks it that it? NADA! She got half of it right, but the other half is Tip & over, so the answer is: Tip the boat over. Looks like Michelle had a CD skip virus. But don't go overboard with this message: it's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.
