Meow.
1. I've been looking at the sky
'Cause it's gettin' me high
Forget the hearse 'cause I never die
I got nine lives
Cat's eyes
Abusin' every one of them and running wild

2. Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon
What could you do?

3. They print my message in the Saturday Sun
I had to tell them I ain't second to none
And I told about equality and it's true
Either you're wrong or you're right

4. Hey, hey mama said the way you move,
Gon' make you sweat, gon' make you groove.

5. You got your spell on me, baby.
You got your spell on me, baby.
Yes, you got your spell on me, baby,
Turnin' my heart into stone

6. Boiling heat, summer stench
`Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I`ll hear you scream again

7. I'll stand down by the door
And catch the grey men
When they dive from the fourteenth floor

8. Yeah, keep on shinin' your light, gonna make every thing
Pretty mama, gonna make everything all right
And I ain't got no worries 'cause I ain't in no hurry at all

9. But I cut some cord, and I shouldn't have done that
And it won't forgive me after all these years

10. She really gets me high (Bam-ba-Lam)
You know that's no lie (Bam-ba-Lam)
She's so rock steady (Bam-ba-Lam)
And she's always ready (Bam-ba-Lam)

11. And now at last we plainly see
We'll have a dance of Liberty, Liberty!

12. What can I do?
'Cause I-I-I-I-I'm feelin' blue

Blanket guess: Cat Scratch Fever, Ted Nugent

5 Point Bonus: Who was the first African American artist to take a rap song to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100?

The way I phrased this question made this one a bit iffy.... I wanted to used "artist" generic rather than give away whether it was a solo artist or a group. The question reads like I was looking for a solo artist, but the correct answer is actually a group....

First off, the first three "rap" songs to reach #1 were all by white artists....

Rapture - Blondie (1981)
Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice (1990)
Good Vibrations - Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch (1991)

Then in 1992, two more songs joined this list, and both of them were by black artists. Two people guessed Sir Mix-a-Lot, who took Baby Got Back to #1 in the summer of '92. But earlier that Spring, he got miggiddy miggedy macked by the legendary Kris Kross, who took Jump to #1.

Nobody guessed Kris Kross.... however, because of my phrasing, I did go back and award 3 points to Esto and Fanny for Sir Mix-a-Lot, since he was the first solo black artist to take a rap song to #1, and it was the same year....

Whew!

Ha! I was considering Public Enemy but eschewed them because they were a group.....

I wasn't too confident in Mix-a-lot because it was so much later than Rapture (which I had pegged mid-80s), but I guess I was right about that part at least. Never would have guessed that those little backwards punks went to #1 with that song. Then again, Billboard do love its novelties....

The 3DN version left out the verses about the judges' robes being black and their heads being white.

Fanny Fun Fact: The song was co-written by Alan Arkin's dad.
