I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical,
I understand equations both the simple and quadratical
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news,
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse

Their house is a museum
When people come to see 'um
They really are a screa um
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

From the category "Tolkien", name that song...

Mine's a tale that can't be told
My freedom I hold dear
How years ago in days of old
When magic filled the air
'Twas in the darkest depths of Mordor
I met a girl so fair
But Gollum, and the evil one
Crept up and slipped away with her
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Here's a tough one:

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!


According to Danny, it takes exactly one minute and 38 seconds to sing.



Auld Lang Syne

Trivia: for some reason, when it's played in Times Square right after the ball drops, they only play the first half of a verse



Huzzah! A hagis for ThatDonGuy! These lines lead the second stanza... Since most don’t know the words to the first, or even the chorus, it’s pretty rare for anyone to guess. Did you use the hint?


No, but it sounded a lot like the fifth verse, which I had heard before:

And there's a hand, my trusty fiere!
and gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak' a right gude-willie waught,
for auld lang syne.

How about a coal-mining song?

Oh the midnight, and the mornin', and the middle of day,
Are the same to the miner who labors away,
Where the demons of death often come by surprise,
One fall of the slate and you're buried alive.

Very close. Right group. Wrong song.

Still in play....

Quote: Mosca

The wicked king of clubs awoke
it was to his queen turned
his lips were laughing as they spoke
his eyes like bullets burned
the sun's upon a gambling day
his queen smiled low and blissfully
let's make some wretched fool to play
plain it was she did agree


Probably pretty easy for this crowd.

I have no idea on this one. The hint could be anyone from Will Rogers to Willie Nelson but ... uhhh?



Townes van Zandt, “Mr Mudd and Mr Gold”.



The wicked king of clubs awoke
It was to his queen turned
His lips were laughing as they spoke
His eyes like bullets burned
The sun's upon a gambling day
His queen smiled low and blissfully
Let's make some wretched fool to play
Plain it was she did agree

He send his deuce down into diamond
His four to heart, and his trey to spade
Three kings with their legions come
Preparations soon were made
They voted club the days commander
Gave him an army face and number
All but the outlaw jack of diamonds
And the aces in the sky

He give his sevens first instructions
Spirit me a game of stud
Stakes unscarred by limitation
'tween a man named Gold and man named Mudd
Club filled Gold with greedy vapors
'til his long, green eyes did glow
Mudd was left with the sighs and trembles
Watching his hard earned money go

Flushes fell on gold like water
Tens they paired and paired again
But the aces only flew through heaven
And the diamond jack called no man friend
The diamond queen saw Mudd's ordeal
Began to think of her long lost son
Fell to her knees with a mother's mercy
Prayed to the angels every one

The diamond queen, she prayed and prayed
And the diamond angel filled Mudd's hole
The wicked king of clubs himself
Fell in face down in front of Gold
Now three kings come to clubs command
But the angels from the sky did ride
Three kings up on the streets of gold
Three fireballs on the muddy side

The club queen heard her husband's call
But lord that queen of diamond's joy
When the outlaw in the heavenly hall
Turned out to be her wandering boy
Now Mudd he checked and Gold bet all
And Mudd he raised and Gold did call
And the smile just melted off his face
When Mudd turned over that diamond ace

Now here's what this story's told
If you feel like mud you'll end up gold
If you feel like lost, you'll end up found
So amigo, lay them raises down
