Here's a new one for you!!

You give me something I need,
Now tell me I got something for you.

This band extrciated themselves from the past, but it's not really a good idea to be around them.

    Hi pheebs

    I keep looking at these lyrics and am usually stumped, sorry :?

    Toni from clue we did get there it sounds like Dire Straits but am grabbing at straws here :roll:

    Come on someone put us out of our misery please. Where are you mellman and vonski, they usually know 'em all.
    Chris :wink:

    I am thinking Prince but dont really know his music. There was the band King but they were early eighties( Pride).
    I think we need another line......or two

    Come on, and do a what you do.

    Full marks to you, Delboy.

    I never got round to seeing Free play live, but did see Bad Company at the Clyde Auditorium.

    Lead singer, Paul Rodgers, has been touring with Queen - although I'm sure you probably already know that!!

    Who's going to do the next lyric conundrum??

    Is it strange fruit, can't remember who sang it though?.

    I think it’s about the KKK and the race lynchings down in the Deep South, the same place Clarkson May and Hammond visited on top gear when then almost got lynched themselves for writing certain slogans on their cars so nothing seems to have changed much!
