We played this for a very long time, but it's been a while, so I thought we could start it again.

Here's how it works:
I post a few lines or a verse from a song -- DO NOT post the whole song, as that amounts to copyright infringement. You post some lyrics from another song that contains a functional* word or phrase from my lyrics, putting the linkword in <b>bold</b>. And so on.
*Linkwords like "river" and "strawberry" are good; linkwords like "this" and "you" aren't.

Okay, here goes:

"I saw my baby wearing Santa's beard
She kissed him once and whispered in his ear."

Well, rather than waking up and doing some good I think I'll just play this game for a little while longer!

Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

(what is it w/ Everly Brothers and me today? Of course this song always makes me think of the parody, "Scree-ea-ea-ea-eam, scream scream scream")

Once in the drear dead days beyond recall,
When on the world the mist began to fall
Out of the dreams that rose in happy throng
Low to our hearts love sang an old sweet song.
