Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Burns your tummy, don'tcha know"

Answer: Chug-A-Lug

"Chug-a-lug, chug-a-lug
Make you want to holler hi-de-ho
Burns your tummy, don'tcha know
Chug-a-lug, chug-a-lug"

"Chug-A-Lug" was released as a single from the album "Roger and Out" in 1964 with "Reincarnation" on the B-side. It peaked at number nine on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and was Roger Miller's second hit after "Dang Me." The song is about a young man sneaking his first taste of alcohol.
2. "Out all night and runnin' wild / Woman sittin' home with a month-old child"

Answer: Dang Me

"Well, here I sit high, gettin' ideas
Ain't nothing but a fool would live like this
Out all night and runnin' wild
Woman sittin' home with a month-old child

Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman, would you weep for me?"

"Dang Me" won the 1964 Grammy Award for Best Country and Western Song. It was Roger Miller's first top ten hit. The song was released as a single in May of 1964 from the album "Roger and Out" with "Got Two Again" on the B-side.
3. "Yeah, I see you're goin' down the street in your big Cadillac / You got girls in the front, you got girls in the back"

Answer: Do-Wacka-Do

"Yeah, I see you're goin' down the street in your big Cadillac
You got girls in the front, you got girls in the back
Yeah, way in back, you got money in a sack
Both hands on the wheel and your shoulders rared back
Root-doot-doot-doot-doot, do-wah"

Do-wacka-do means "do like I do." The song was released as a single from the 1965 album "The Return of Roger Miller" with "Love is Not for Me" on the B-side. It peaked at number 15 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.
4. "Ya can't take a shower in a parakeet cage"

Answer: You Can't Rollerskate in a Buffalo Herd

"Ya can't take a shower in a parakeet cage
But you can be happy if you've a mind to
All ya gotta do is put your mind to it
Knuckle down, buckle down, do it, do it, do it."

This humorous song appears on Roger Miller's second studio album "The Return of Roger Miller," which was released in 1965. The album reached number two on the U.S. Top Country Albums Song Chart and number four on the U.S. Billboard Top 200.
5. "Yes, it's funny I don't fit"

Answer: Where Have All the Average People Gone?

"And the government has given me a number
To simplify my birth and life and death
And still my woman thinks I'm awful important
Like the moon and the sun and the sea and the sky and breath
Yes, it's funny I don't fit
Where have all the average people gone?
Funny I don't fit
Where have all the average people gone?"

"Where Have All the Average People Gone?" was released as a single in 1969 with "Little Children Run and Play" and "Boeing Boeing 707." A 1974 American made-for-television science fiction drama bears as its name the title of this song.
6. "Well, I think I finally found me a sure-fire way to forget"

Answer: One Dyin' And A Buryin'

"Well, I think I finally found me a sure-fire way to forget
It's so simple, I'm surprised I hadn't done thought of it before yet
It's foolproof, well, it's foolhardy, maybe, but who knows?
Anyway, here I am, walkin' down toward where the cold dark water flows
All it takes is
One dyin' and a buryin', one dyin' and a buryin'
Some cryin', six carryin' me
I wanna be free
Oh-ho, I want to be free."

This top ten country chart song was released as single from the 1965 honky tonk album "The Third Time Around," along with "Engine Engine #9," "Kansas City Star," and "The Last Word in Lonesome Is Me."

Roger Miller was born in 1936 in Fort Worth, Texas and is nicknamed "The Wild Child."
7. "Have to get well pretty soon though"

Answer: Lou's Got the Flu

"I got sugar in my candy and sugar in my soup
I'm getting fat from the candy and sick from the soup
True love is sweet but if it's mishandled
A bitter wind blows and out goes your candle

And Lou's got the flu and he's laid up, laid up, laid up,
Lou's got the flu and he's laid up,
Have to get well pretty soon though."

This song comes from Roger Miller's debut studio album "Roger and Out," which was released in May of 1964 by Columbia Recording Studios.

Roger Miller was inducted into the Country Music Hall of fame in 1995, three years after dying of lung cancer.
8. "Big and little, men and women, boys and girls"

Answer: It Takes All Kinds to Make A World

"Well, it takes all kinds to make a world
Big and little, men and women, boys and girls
And I'm the kinda guy hard luck sure gives a whirl
But I guess it takes all kinds to make a world."

This song is included on the 1995 album "King of the Road: The Genius of Roger Miller" which contains a compilation of 70 songs.

Roger Miller was married three times, to Barbara Crow in 1953, Leah Kendrick in 1964, and Mary Arnold in 1977.
9. "The stars are out and so will I be, pretty soon"

Answer: The Moon is High

"Well the moon is high and so am l,
The stars are out and so will l be, pretty soon,
And l can tell you're mad at me
'Cos there you stand, telling me goodbye,
And l say no, you can't go
L love you so much l can't let you get away
But come the dawn and it will dawn on me you're gone."

Roger Miller provided voice work for a number of films, including the 1967 "Waterhole No. 3," the 1973 "Robin Hood," where he was the voice of the rooster, and the 1991 "Lucky Luke," where he was the voice of Jolly Jumper. He also appeared as himself in a 1979 episode of "The Muppet Show."
10. "I got credit down at the grocery store / And my barber tells me jokes"

Answer: Kansas City Star

"Kansas City star, that's what I are
Yodel-deedle ay-hee, you oughta see my car
I drive a big old Cadillac with wire wheels, got rhinestones on the spokes
I got credit down at the grocery store
And my barber tells me jokes
I'm the number one attraction every supermarket parkin' lot
I'm the king of Kansas City, no thanks, Omaha, thanks a lot."

"Kansas City Star" entered the top ten on the U.S. Country Singles chart in 1965. The song is from the perspective of a television children's show "star" who prefers to stay in Kansas City than to try to become a bigger star (and possibly end up failing) in Omaha.
