"Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, __ __ _____ _ ___ ____..."
"'tis the season to be jolly," because "Don't Forget The Lyrics!" is in a holiday mood. Last time, Aubrey White pulled a sister act to $50,000, while Jessie Money picked the right time to pick a pop song, but the wrong time to get it correct by one word. All hands on deck, let's begin!
There she is, and wait, we got 2 more. 3 Miss Americas coming your way. They are:
1981 winner-Susan Powell
1999 winner-Heather French Henry
2008 winner-Kristin Haglund
They're all playing for the Miss America Organization. So let's get to it!
1960'S                           R&B
POP                              TV THEMES
MADONNA                       ONE-HIT WONDERS
                    ROCK IN THE HOLIDAYS
Up first, American Favorites and these are:
  • White Christmas - Bing Crosby
  • Over the Rainbow - Judy Garland
"Over The Rainbow" is their first pick. Off they go!
Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high.
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue.
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Their answer: Do come true. Talk about 3-part harmony. Locking it in....CORRECT!  Next up, TV Themes. Tuning in.....
  • The Ballad of Jed Clampett
  • The Facts of Life
They get the Ballad of Jed Clampett. Ladies.....
Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
Poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shooting for some food,
And up through the ground come a bubbling crude
(Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea)

Well the first thing you know old Jed's a millionaire
Kin folk said Jed move away from there
Said California is the place you oughta be
So they loaded up the truck and they...WHAT?
Their answer: Moved to Beverly. Locking it in...correct! They are moving and grooving!  Next one is Pop and these 2:
  • The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades - Timbuk3
  • Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield
They get Unwritten. Head for the Hills!
I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the...WHAT?
Their answer: Rain on your skin. Locking it in....RAIN IT DOWN! It's correct!  Next up, R&B and....
  • What You Won't Do for Love - Bobby Caldwell
  • Rhythm of the Night - Debarge
They get Rhythm of the Night. We're off!
When it feels like the world is on your shoulders
And all the madness has got you going crazy,
It's time to get out, step out into the street
Where all of the action is right there at your feet
Well, I know a place where we can dance the whole night away
Underneath the electric stars
Just come with me, and we can shake it loose right away
You'll be doing fine once the music starts, oh

Feel the beat of the rhythm of the night
Dance until the morning light...STOP!
Their answer: Forget the worries on your mind.  They don't need to. Locking it in....CORRECT!  That'll give them the safety net!  Next up, MADONNA and the songs by Guy Ritchie's ex are: 
  • Like a Virgin
  • Papa Don't Preach
They get Like a Virgin? Okay then....
I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it through
Didn't know how lost I was
Until I found you

I was beat incomplete
I'd been had, I was sad and blue
But you made me feel
Yeah, you made me feel
Shiny and new

Like a virgin....HEY!
Their answer: Touched for the very first time.'s CORRECT! Y'know, I would imagine Miss USA singing "I Kissed A Girl" by Katy Perry, but I digress. Moving on.....One-Hit Wonders is next and....
  • Afternoon Delight - Starland Vocal Band
  • Tainted Love - Softcell
They get Afternoon Delight. Someone call an anchorman!
Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
Gonna grab some afternoon delight.
My motto's always been; when it's right, it's right.
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night.
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day.
And you know the night is always gonna be there any way.

Sky rockets in flight. Afternoon delight. Afternoon delight.

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
Looking forward to a little afternoon delight.
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite....STOP!
They blank out. Maybe the 3 lines will help. They get A which is: And the thought of rubbin' you is getting so exciting. Locking it that it? It IS!  Next up, 1960's....
  • Do You Love Me - The Contours
  • My Favorite Things - Julie Andrews
They get my favorite things. Ipods & Laptops & cable & Xbox....
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudel
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things
When the dog...DOES WHAT?
Their answer: Bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad. No need to as they lock's RIGHT!  Buffalo Wild Wings and T.G.I. Friday's.....
On we go to "Rock In the Holidays...."
  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town - Bruce Springsteen
  • Jingle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms
They get Jingle Bell Rock. Let's do this!
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a....WHAT?
Their answer: Swell time to go riding in a one-horse sleigh. As they lock it in, we dissect it. Everything is correct except "Riding." Does the ride continue?................NOPE!  Correct answer: Gliding. The original Jingle Bells have the word "Ride" in it. But the ride's over for these 3 Miss Americas as they leave with $25K.  Convenience store slushies and Nintendo DS....can't get enough of that song.
For this next game, it's a blind date game. J'Nae Fincannon....we're not making this up is from Austin, TX. J'nae, please turn around and meet a songwriter from NYC. His name is Mark Weiser. Now turn to the board:
ROCK                                  COUNTRY
MY HOMETOWN                  IN THE MOVIES
POP                                     DRIVING SONGS
R&B                                     1970'S
                          THE DOORS
First up, Country and these 2 are:
  • Ring of Fire - Johnny Cash
  • Achy Breaky Heart - Billy Ray Cyrus
They get Ring of Fire. Fire it up!
Love is a burnin' thing,
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire --
I fell into a ring of fire.

I fell into a burnin' ring of fire --
I went down, down, down
And the....WHAT?
Their answer: Flames went higher. You might want to put it on hold. We gotta run. Is that the answer or will they use a backup? The shocking answers reveal next week. It's not what you know about it, it's what you sing about it.

Fantasy football and Old-school pro wrestling....
