3.19 - Series Finale
"We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?...
It's ___ ____ ____"
A pizza maker and Bostonian will hope to
beat the board for big bucks as "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" heads into
"the Final Countdown." Let's meet her. Her name is DEANNA DELLA CIOPPA.
She comes from a big family, 34 first cousins who all own restaurants.
EASY LISTENING ROCK
STEVE MILLER BAND COUNTRY
PIANO PLAYERS POP
We start out with Pop and these two for $2500...
- "A Thousand Miles" - Vanessa Carlton
- "Sussudio" - Phil Collins
She wants to go a thousand miles for
$2500... three letters...
Making my way downtown
And I'm home bound
Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Through the crowd
And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder....
If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by?
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could just... AND STOP!
"See you tonight" is good for $2500. Now
let's try and double with Divas.
- "Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves" - Cher
- "So Emotional" - Whitney Houston
She gets so emotional. Hopefully not too
emotional, because she needs four words...
I've been hearing your heartbeat inside
I keep your photograph beside my bed
Livin' in a world of fantasies
I can't get you out of my head
I've been waiting for the phone to ring all night
Why you wanna make me feel so good
I got a love of my own babe
I shouldn't get so hung up on you
I remember the way that we touched I wish I didn't like it so much
I get so emotional, baby
Every time.... TIME'S UP!
"I think of you". She thinks... about
locking it in... and she's right for $5000! Doubling again with country.
- "Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong
Song" - BJ Thomas
- "Queen of Hearts" - Juice Newton
She plays with the "Queen of Hearts". She
needs a trey.
and I'm a-waiting
on the twelve-oh-five
Hoping it'll take me
just a little farther down the line
you're just a heartache in disguise;
Won't you keep my heart from breaking
if it's only for a very short time
Playing with the queen of hearts,
knowing it ain't really smart
The joker ain't the only fool who'll do... DO WHAT?
"Anything for you". Sounded like a
childhood favorite. She locks it in. And she's.... RIGHT AGAIN for
$10,000! We had some twang, now we have some feeling.... R and Bizzle
(that means rhythm and blues!) for the guaranteed money.
- "Show And Tell" - Al Wilson
- "Just the Two of Us" - Grover Washington, Jr. (with Bill Withers)
Just you and me, Wayne. Seven words is
the price, and $25,000 is the cost...
I see the crystal raindrops fall
And the beauty of it all
when the sun comes shining through
To make those rainbows in my mind
When I think of you some time
And I want to spend some time with you
Just the two of us... WORDS?
"We can make it if we try." Confident?
Locked? And... BOOM, $25,000!
Can she double it on Easy Listening?
- "True" - Spandau Ballet
- "Into the Night" - Benny Mardones
She goes with "True". She needs six
words... THAT's the truth.
So true funny how it seems
Always in time, but never in line for dreams
Head over heels when toe to toe
This is the sound of my soul
This is the sound
I bought a ticket to the world
But now I've come back again
Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
Oh I want the truth to be said
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh... HUH?
"I know this much is true." She knows a
LOT! Will she know enough to lock this in? YES!
Had a little quiet time... now it's time
to rock it out for $100,000.
- "Summer of '69" - Bryan Adams
-"Killer Queen" - Queen
She goes with the Summer of '69... and
she needs nine..
I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played 'til my fingers bled
It was summer of '69
Me and some guys from school
Had a Band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I shoulda known we'd never get far
Oh when I lock back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I.... IF YOU WHAT?
She goes with "...had my choice, yeah,
I'd wanna be there those". Obviously cut off. But her mom Mary and her
BFF Joy could help OR she could take 2 words from the line OR she could
take 3 lines and choose. She goes with 3 Lines...
A: ...had the choice, yeah, I'd never wanna leave there
B: ...had the choice, yeah, I'd always wanna be there
C: ...had the choice, now, I'd always wanna stay there
She thinks A sounds right. Because six of
the words are common, they're lit. She wants 2 Words more... "Had
the choice, ____ I'd always wanna be there." She locks in B...
... and she's right! Now to double on...
- "I'm Still Standing" - Elton John
- "New York State Of Mind" - Billy Joel
Despite being from Boston, Deanna's in a
New York state of mine. She has to catch the nine for the 200 large.
Some folks like to get away, take a
holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood.
But I'm taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line-
I'm in a New York state of mind.
I've seen all the... WHAT?
.... and she blanks. She calls out Joy as
her 1 Backup. She goes with "movie stars in their fancy cars and their
limousines". Deanna agrees... and she has..... a figure that begins with
the number 2.... and has five 0's!
Going to the '60s for $350,000...
- "Windy" - The Association
- "Cupid" by Sam Cooke
Cupid, draw back your bow and let 10
Cupid, draw back your bow and let your
Straight to my lover's heart for me, for me
Cupid, please hear my cry and let .... da DA da DA da DA...
She thinks about it and locks in "Your
arrow fly straight to my lover's heart for me " If she's right, she wins
another $150,000. If she's wrong... she takes a $175,000 swing
The words are... "...your arrow fly
straight to my lover's heart for me"! That's $350,000!
Only one song left on the board and
that's... the Steve Miller Band.
- "Rock N' Me"
- "Fly Like An Eagle"
She wanna fly like an eagle... Nine words
gets you the Million Dollar Song...
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future
I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
'Til I'm free
Oh, Lord, through the revolution
Feed the babies who don't have enough to eat... FREEZE!
And... blanked. She has the end with
"with no shoes on their feet". That leaves three in the middle. But she
can't figure it out to save her life... "Free the people"? Nope. It's
too big of a risk, so she pulls out with $350,000. The correct answer...
"shoe the children."
And that'll do it for this series of
"Don't Forget the Lyrics!" As Wayne takes us out with a number from his
new album, we remind you, as always... no matter where you go... no
matter what you do... no matter what song you call YOUR song... it's not
what you know about it... it's what you sing about it! For Pierre Kelly,
I'm Chico Alexander... over and out!
