On what to blog?

A blog a day keeps bedtime away. I’ll be doing this most days until into May and there will be some times I will get writer’s block, rather than writer’s blog. To help me today, the quizmaster for 16 November has given me a few questions that are deemed not quite of the quality required – sometimes because he’s used them before. So try these (answers tomorrow):

What are the next lyrics of the following songs:

  • Some people call me the space cowboy, some call me the gangster of love….. [Steve Miller Band; next 5 words?]
  • Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song, And I’ll…….. [Beatles; next 7 words?]
  • An old man turned ninety-eight,  He won the lottery and died the next day…… [Alanis Morrisette; next 7 words?]
