What continent is associated with this song?
"I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
Running around, trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to"
Where would you find the city mentioned in these lyrics?
"Have you seen the old man
In the closed-down market
Kicking up the paper,
with his worn out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride
Hand held loosely at his side
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news"
This song talks of spending one night on what continent?
"...and the world's your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
You'll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you're lucky then the god's a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me"
Where would you be if you were watching this young lady?
"When she walks, she's like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when she passes, each one she passes goes "A-a-a-h"
Oh, but I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her I love her
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day as she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me"
This song sings of which continent?
"I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in, 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"
Where did this singer tell us she's been to?
"Hey lady, you lady
cursing at your life
You're a discontented mother
and a regimented wife
I've no doubt you dream about
the things you'll never do
But I wish someone had talked to me
like I wanna talk to you..."
With what continent would you associate these lyrics?
"No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women
No fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it's dark
Everyone around me is a total stranger
Everyone avoids me like a psyched Lone Ranger, everyone"
In what continent would you find the city mentioned in this song?
"When my baby, when my baby smiles at me
I feel like Tarzan of the jungle
There on the hot sand
And in the bungalow
While monkeys play above-a
We'll make love-a"
The lyrics of this song depict people of which continent?
"All the old paintings on the tomb
They do the sand dance, dont'cha know?
If they move too quick
They're falling down like a domino
All the bazaar man by the Nile
He got the money on a bet
They snap their teeth on a cigarette"
Where would you find the place in this songs title?
"My my, I tried to hold you back but you were stronger
Oh yeah, and now it seems my only chance is giving up the fight
And how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose"
