"If you like it, then you should've ___ _ ___ __ ___..."
3 seasons ago, Fox found the karaoke game to "put a ring on it," and "Don't Forget The Lyrics!" was born. Last time, Marcus Johnson was seeing stars instead of a light in a tunnel for $25,000 with Mark Cuban appearing just 1 week before he channeled his inner Martha Stewart. Enough about that, let's get to it!
Anna Jensen has a problem. She needs money to fix her infected ear. We hear you. On to the categories:
1960s R&B
First up, Pop and these 2:
  • The Longest Time - Billy Joel
  • You're My Best Friend - Queen
She gets the Longest time. But for how long?
Oh, Oh, Oh
For the longest time
Oh, Oh, Oh
For the longest time

If you said goodbye to me tonight
There would still be music left to write
What else could I do, I'm so inspired by you
That hasn't...DONE WHAT?
Anne's answer: happened for the longest time. Will it happen? She locks it in....CORRECT! Next up, Southern Rock. Go south with these:
  • Freebird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
  • The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Charlie Daniels Band
She gets "The Devil." Spin it!
The devil went down to Georgia, looking for a soul to steal
In a bind an' way behind he was willin' to make a deal.
He came across this young man sawin' on a fiddle, playing it hot
An' the devil jumped on a hickory stump an' said 'I'll tell ya what'
I guess you didn't know it, I'm a fiddle player too,
and if you care to take a dare I make a bet with you.
Now you play a real good fiddle boy, but give the devil his due,
I'll bet a fiddle of gold against you soul 'cause I think I'm better then you.

The boy said my name's Johnny, an' it might be a sin,
But I'll take your bet
You're gonna regret,
'Cuz I'm the best there ever been.

Johnny rosin up your bow an' play your fiddle hard
'cause hell's broke loose in Georgia an' the devil deals the cards.
Now if you win you'll get this shinny fiddle made of gold,
but if you lose the devil.. DOES WHAT?
Anne's answer: Takes your soul. Then, she changes to "Gets." But to make sure, she uses the 2 lines backup. The first 2 words...are the same. So she locks it in....CORRECT!  Next will be Inspirational Songs and....
  • New Attitude - Patti Labelle
  • I'm Coming Out - Diana Ross
She gets "I'm Coming Out." More problem.....
I'm coming out

I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to...WHAT?
Anne's answer: Let it show. No other info for the D.E.A. She locks it in....CORRECT! next will be Rock and these 2:
Keep Your Hands to Yourself - Georgia Satellites
Touch Me - The Doors
She wants "Touch Me." She wants to feel....the safety net....
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Now touch me, baby
Can't you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?
Why won't you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?
Now, I'm gonna love you
Till the heavens stop the rain
I'm gonna love you
Till the stars...WHAT?
Anne's answer: Fall from the sky for you and I. She locks it in....will she fall flat......CORRECT! She rises up more to the next category which is Hall & Oates.
  • She's Gone
  • Out of Touch
"Out of Touch" is her song. Let's go.
Shake it up is all that we know
Using the bodies up as we go
Waking up to fantasy
The shades all around aren't the colors we used to see
Broken ice still melts in the sun
And times that are broken can often be one again
We're soul alone
And soul really matters to me
Take a look around

You're out of touch
I'm out of time
But I'm out of..WHAT?
Anne's answer: My head when you're not around. Locking it in....CORRECT!  next up will be 1960's.
  • Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys
  • Shop Around - Smokey Robinson & The MIracles
She gets Shop Around. Get the shopping cart!
When I became of age, mama called me to her side
She said 'son you're growing up now, pretty soon
You'll take a bride'...and then she said....
Just because you've become a young woman now
There's still some things that you don't understand now
Before you ask some guy for his hand now..STOP!
Anne's answer: my mama told me you better shop around. That's actually the chorus. She then calls out Matt to add: Son boy. Still not right. Maybe the last one will help.
A - You stay single for as long as you can now
B - Keep your freedom for as long as you can now
C - Don't get married for as long as you can now'
She gets B...and it's...RIGHT! Next one will be Party Songs and these 2:
  • Super Freak - Rick James
  • You Make Me Feel Like Dancing - Leo Sayer
She gets You Can't, er, Super Freak. Stop! Hammer Time!
She's a very kinky girl
The kind you don't take home to mother
She will never let your spirits down
Once you get her off the street, ow girl

She likes the boys in the band
She says that I'm her all-time favorite
When I...DO WHAT?
Anne's answer: make my move to her room it's the right time. Is it right? SHe locks it in....CORRECT! Next will be R&B:
  • I Can't Get Next to You-Temptations
  • We're in This Love Together - Al Jarreau
She gets the Temptations song. We're off!
oh I,
can turn a gray sky blue,
you see, I can make it rain when I want it to
oh I,
can build a castle from a single grain of sand
you see, I can make a ship sail on dry land.
Dennis: But my life is incomplete and I'm so blue. 'Cause I can't get next to you.

I can't get next to you, babe. (Next to you)
I can't get next to you. (I just can't get next you)
I can't get next to you, babe.
I can't get next to you. STOP!
Anne's answer: I can't get next to you, babe.
I can't. She can bailout if she wants.....and does at $200,000. That'll give you a fixin. Here's the answer: I can fly like a bird in the sky.
And because turkeys can fly, we want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. Because when you give thanks, it's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.
