    4th of July lyric test

    I found this old post that I made 5 years ago...I thought it'd be fun to bring it back. Don't cheat by searching for the old post Guess up to 3 a day!!

    All these songs are about the good ol' U.S. of A.

    1 "send me off to a foreign land to go and kill the yellow man" (actual lyrics, not meant to offend)
    2 "free, we want to be free, we huddle close"
    3 "little sister make minimum wage, living in a one room jungle, monkey cage"
    4 "from the mountain tops to the rollin' hills, baseball, hot dogs, and all the cheap thrills"
    5 "all night diners, keep you awake on black coffee and a hard roll"
    6 "This lady may have stumbled but she ain't never fell, and if the Russians don't believe that they can all go straight to hell" (once again not meant to offend)
    7 "on the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone, Mexican kids are shooting fireworks below"
    8 "well let me roll up on the sidewalk and take a look"
    9 "From the lakes of Minnesota to the hills of Tennessee, cross the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea"
    10 "looking out a dirty old window down below the cars in the city go rushing by"
    11 "I took a plane to sunny Spain, I crossed the desert on a camel train"
    12 "well there's a young man in a teeshirt, listening to a rock n' roll station"
    13 "seems everything I buy these days has got a foreign name"
    14 "everytime I look you're falling falling, hidden by the wind"
    15 "so we must learn to love each other, see that man over there, he's my brother"
    16 "paint your lipstick, confidence shines like glass"
    17 "the kid I was when I first left home, was looking for his freedom and a life of his own"
    18 "talk is cheap on satellite, but all I get is information, I'm still here"
    19 "hate New York City it's cold and it's damp"
    20 "and they're closing all the factories down"
    21 "Leroy says send a picture, Leroy says hello"
    22 "honey can't you remember we played all the parts"
    23 "it was a cold and wet December day,when we touched the ground at JFK"
    24 "her bikini small, heels tall, she said she likes the ocean"
    25 "another mile or two to 'Frisco 200 gallons from L.A., the engine's thumpin' like a disco, we oughtta dump her in the bay"

    1 through 18 are about America in general. 19 through 25 are about specific places in the U.S. good luck, I think they may be hard this time!
