Still in play...

Quote: Mosca

This one should be easy, but who knows. The missing last line is the title.

Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk
At our Christmas party
We were drinkin' champagne punch and homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn't know what to think of him
Until he sang Feliz Navidad
Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins
From his second wife Mary Nell
Of course he brought his new wife, Kay
Who talks all about AA
Chain smokin' while the stereo plays
Noel, Noel, the First Noel
Carve the turkey, turn the ballgame on
Mix margaritas when the eggnog's gone
Send somebody to the Quik Pak store
We need some ice and some extension cords
A can of bean dip and some Diet right
A box of tampons and some Marlboro Lights
Hallelujah, everybody say cheese...



Man, if you don’t know it, I don’t even know how to hint it. You either know it, or you don’t. It’s a modern alt-country Christmas classic.

Answer under the spoiler tag.

<snip>And now, in the category "Muder Ballad", name that song...

Now on the sidewalk, sunny morning
Lies a body just oozin' life, eek
And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
Could that someone be...



Gialmere,

Easy...

scolist,

Well, that didn't take long... Correct!

How about 60's Pop Music:

It's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds,
and the ink stains that have dried upon some line

Oh hell, it’s either, “Oh yeah, I know that one!” Or, “I got no freakin’ idea.” That 60s pop stuff is right in my wheelhouse.

Also, in this format, there's no music involved. So a song you might easily recognize after hearing only the first bar or two could be elusive when only staring at the lyrics.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

"Mack the Knife"


Dog Hand


Ding! Ding! Winner!!

"Mack the Knife" was originally a song in a 20's German play that had some success Off-Broadway in the US. The translated music intrigued some American musicians with Lois Armstrong being the first big name to record it. The definitive version is obviously the 1959 Bobby Darin release...

Still in play...

Quote: Joeman

Back to "Gambling":

He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins
He don't play for respect

He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

-------------------------------------

And now, in the category "Gangsta", name that song...

Here's a murder rap to keep yo dancin
with a crime record like Charles Manson
AK-47 is the tool
Don't make me act the motherf----n fool
Me you can go toe to toe, no maybe
I'm knockin n----z out tha box, daily
yo weekly, monthly and yearly
until them dumb motherf---ers see clearly
that I'm down with the capital C-P-T
Boy you can't f--- with me
So when I'm in your neighborhood, you better duck
Coz Ice Cube is crazy as f---
As I leave, believe I'm stompin
but when I come back, boy, I'm comin...
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.
