Someone started something similar to this on the Nexus Book Club, and I thought it might be kind of fun to start something similar here.

See if you can guess which song these lyrics are from. No Internet searches. You have to search your mind for the answer.

You must guess the title and the artist correctly to win.

The first person that gets it right then gets to post the next lyrics line for everyone else to guess. If you are 100% certain you got it right, you do not need to wait for the original poster to say so. Go ahead and post your next challenge if you are positive you got it.

Keep it clean, and keep it reasonably accessible, nothing too off-the-beaten-path. But don’t make it too easy either. Example: Rainy days and Mondays always get me down, is way too easy.

Also, if any challenge is posted that remains unanswered – that turns out to be too difficult and remains unanswered for a long time, that turn will be forfeited and I will start the next quiz.

Also, every time you start a new challenge, be sure to reply only to the original post, and not to a previous comment. This will allow for more responses directly under each challenge.

So here’s the first lyrics challenge:

“Well I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer.”

Any clue?

@Tracee: If you are certain of that, then go ahead and start the next quiz.
OMG, I have no firggin' idea. You have the hardest lyrics. :P
"Killing me Softly", by Roberta Flack. Am I right?
It it fair to ask if it is a country song??

I didn't really specify that in the rules. I guess so.
JM, I believe it has played for me in the past. It could do with TD's setup or something. I surf at work -- and get away with it -- but videos and audio streaming (like NPR) is blocked from 8 - 5.
After reading this, and since I'd never heard of Trish(a) Yearwood, I played a couple Youtube videos to figure out who she was and what she did, and one of them had these lines. Can I give the answer ir is it considered cheating?

Hmm, not sure. Instructions say not to "google" it, which means not to go looking it up, but since no one else seems to be able to guess it, I'm gonna say that it is fine this time. Just don't make a habit of it, Frenchie. :)
Dallas: Instructions say not to "google" it

I didn't actually. I was just curious about that Trisha Yearwood, and the first song I played was -

The Song Remembers When

(although I admit I picked this one first because it seemed to fit Jean Marie's lines)

Jean Marie: sorry, not really my own cup of tea.
Instructions say not to "google" it

I know you didn't exactly. :)
"I don't want nobody to shoot me in the fox hole"
No clue. :(
Tracee: Good guess. The complete stanza is -

Wars are really ugly
They're dirty and they're cold
I don't want nobody
To shoot me in the fox hole

Jean Marie: Actually it's the music and singing that didn't click with me.

both: Jaume, not Juame :P
