Let's Play: WHO WROTE THIS LYRIC!

Let's Play WHO WROTE THIS LYRIC!

I'm not Bob Eubanks, but pretend that I am (as a matter of fact, I've met him many times playing gigs near his Hidden Hills Estate --- Nice guy!).

But that's neither here nor there. --- AND HERE WE GO!

Bob: "Contestant #1, who wrote these two lyrics? 'Fools give you reasons, wise men never try.' AND, for bonus points: 'And curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid Get.'

Woah, that's pretty tough! I'll hit the timer for 30 seconds --- NOW!"

Bob "Ern" Eubanks 8-) :)

GOING FOR THE BONUS POINTS:

'And curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid Get.'
The Beatles 'White Album'
It was primarily written by John Lennon, though credited to Lennon/McCartney.

I have to get down to the Bahamas someday, Billy!

As far as your BONUS POINTS answer, if I were Alex Trebek and not Bob Eubanks, I'd say "You must be more specific. What song, not what album." Eubanks would let it go as correct! :mrgreen:

I have no idea! It definitely sounds British because of the "Whilst," and is somewhat cynical and/or poetic.

My two guesses: Either Peter Gabriel or Ian Anderson.

Contestant #2: Here's your lyric!

'And I know she's living there, and she loves me to this day ---
I still can't remember when, or how I lost my way --- '

Holy Moly, that's a tough one! --- HeHeHeh! --- Certainly not a Frank Sinatra song, I'll bet... Woah, Nellie!"
