Lyric #16: and instead of saying all of your goodbyes let them know you realize that life goes fast it’s hard to make the good things last you realize the sun doesn’t go down it’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round
Neither of our top two got this right, so the contest is still wide open. Quite a few people are within striking distance of the lead.
Lyric #11: slap the turkey neck and it’s hanging from a pigeon wing you can’t write if you can’t relate trade the cash for the beef for the body for the hate and my time is a piece of wax, falling on a termite that’s choking on the splinters
chillin’ by the fire while we eatin’ fondue i dunno about me but i know about you so say hello to falsetto in three two
Just a quick reminder to all of you to please not leave guesses or hints in the comments, as it prevents other players from having a fair chance to play.
I think more of you have heard this song than realize it, so I'm including the video for you. I think I'll do that for the rest of them, actually. Lyric #5: breathe out so i can breathe you in hold you in and now i know you’ve always been out of your head out of my head i sang
Yesterday's lyric: "Seven Nation Army," by The White Stripes Lyric #5: i just want someone to say to me i’ll always be there when you wake you know i’d like to keep my cheeks dry today i really wanna really gonna have it made

One quick reminder for everyone: if you're going to submit a guess, please don't leave it in the comments, as that prevents others from being able to guess honestly. Send me your guess through email, DM, text, Twitter, or whatever else floats your boat.
Yesterday's lyric: "My Girl," The Temptations Today's lyric: we gonna break it down in just a few seconds don’t make me break it down for nothing now i wanna see y’all on y’alls baddest behavior lend me some sugar, i am your neighbor
The rules are simple: I list a song lyric every day for the next three weeks, and you guess the song title and artist. Easy peasy. You're on your honor not to look them up with Google or anything similar. I can usually tell when someone's cheating, too. If I post a lyric from "Engine Number 9" and you guess it when I know you've never heard the Deftones in your life, I'm going to suspect something. So please, play fair.
The leaderboard will be posted on the sidebar here, so feel free to check in and see how you're doing.
And here we go!
i've got so much honey the bees envy me. i've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees. i guess you'd say what can make me feel this way
Guesses can be submitted by email, direct message, Twitter (@TheRealSamOrme), or however else you'd like. Leaving a comment on the blog makes it pretty easy for everyone else after you to guess, though.
