Subject: BS: (Quiz) What song is this line from ?
From: Divis Sweeney
Date: 09 Sep 06 - 07:38 PM

In this quiz you get a line from a well known song, you can give a clue if you wish. Don't make them too difficult.
Here are a few for starters.

1. Our leaders are the finest men and we elect them again and again.

2. Now I don't mind, I'm chopping wood and I don't care if the money's no good.

3.And though your jewel-encrusted blade has not been plundered still
the sea has washed across your face and taken of its fill.

4.If I could make days last forever If words could make wishes come true

5. This is my country and I sprang from her and I’m learning how to count upon her.

6.And at the age of thirteen I thought I was carrying the weight of the whole world on my shoulders.

Hope you like it, just something to get the brain thinking.
