Lyrically Speaking 2022 - Day 20
July 22, 2022

A tribute to the Annie Bonus


I was trying hard to find a way to honor SilverCamaro in an LS game and I decided that the Annie Bonus, made popular in LB's games of the past, would be perfect. I have avoided using the bonus during LS '22 just for this reason.

Each of these songs contain a common word (sometimes in plural). I'll bet you already know what it is.

1 point for the title, 1 point for the artist, 1 point for the Annie Bonus


1. I stumble into town
Just like a sacred cow
Visions of swastikas in my head
Plans for everyone
It's in the white of my eyes

2. Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest o' the world
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun

3. This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion

4. Oh, oh oh oh oh
She got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down
Oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
She got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down

5. And when she's walking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine

6. Left alone with big fat Fanny
She was such a naughty nanny
Hey big woman, you made a bad boy out of me

7. Told my girl we had to break up
(Silly boy) Thought that she would call my bluff
(Silly boy) But she said to my surprise

8. The West Coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian island dolls
By a palm tree in the sand

9. I woke up this mornin'
Realized what I had done
I stood alone in the cold gray dawn
I knew I'd lost my morning sun
I lost my head and I said some things
Now comes the heartaches that morning bring

10. If you don't take her out tonight
She's gonna change her mind (She's gonna change her mind)
And I will take her out tonight
And I will treat her kind (I'm gonna treat her kind)

11. Every night she walks right in my dreams
Since I met her from the start
I'm so proud I am the only one
Who is special in her heart

12. You got your nuclear boots
And your drip dry glove
Ooh, when you bite your lip
It's some reaction to love, o-ove, o-ove

And your drip dry glove
Ooh, when you bite your lip
It's some reaction to love, o-ove, o-ove

Back for the Final
1. I stumble into town
Just like a sacred cow
Visions of swastikas in my head
Plans for everyone
It's in the white of my eyes
CHINA SQUIRREL - DAVID BOWIE

2. Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest o' the world
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun
SQUIRRELS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN - CYNDI LAUPER

3. This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion

4. Oh, oh oh oh oh
She got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down
Oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
She got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down

5. And when she's walking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine
UPTOWN SQUIRREL - BILLY JOEL

6. Left alone with big fat Fanny
She was such a naughty nanny
Hey big woman, you made a bad boy out of me
FAT BOTTOMED SQUIRRELS - QUEEN

7. Told my girl we had to break up
(Silly boy) Thought that she would call my bluff
(Silly boy) But she said to my surprise

8. The West Coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian island dolls
By a palm tree in the sand
CALIFORNIA SQUIRRELS - THE BEACH BOYS

9. I woke up this mornin'
Realized what I had done
I stood alone in the cold gray dawn
I knew I'd lost my morning sun
I lost my head and I said some things
Now comes the heartaches that morning bring

10. If you don't take her out tonight
She's gonna change her mind (She's gonna change her mind)
And I will take her out tonight
And I will treat her kind (I'm gonna treat her kind)

11. Every night she walks right in my dreams
Since I met her from the start
I'm so proud I am the only one
Who is special in her heart

12. You got your nuclear boots
And your drip dry glove
Ooh, when you bite your lip
It's some reaction to love, o-ove, o-ove

Lyrically Speaking 2022 - Day 20

A tribute to the Annie Bonus


I was trying hard to find a way to honor SilverCamaro in an LS game and I decided that the Annie Bonus, made popular in LB's games of the past, would be perfect. I have avoided using the bonus during LS '22 just for this reason.

Each of these songs contain a common word (sometimes in plural). I'll bet you already know what it is.

1 point for the title, 1 point for the artist, 1 point for the Annie Bonus


1. I stumble into town
Just like a sacred cow

2. Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest o' the world
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun

Not my intention

Lost my discretion

I Kissed a Squirrel - Katy Perry


4. Oh, oh oh oh oh
She got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down
Oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh
She got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down

This Squirrel Is on Fire - Alicia Keys


5. And when she's walking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine

Uptown Squirrel - Billy Joel


6. Left alone with big fat Fanny
She was such a naughty nanny
Hey big woman, you made a bad boy out of me

7. Told my girl we had to break up

8. The West Coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian island dolls
By a palm tree in the sand

9. I woke up this mornin'
Realized what I had done
I stood alone in the cold gray dawn
I knew I'd lost my morning sun
I lost my head and I said some things
Now comes the heartaches that morning bring

Kind of familiar, but no squirrel!


10. If you don't take her out tonight
She's gonna change her mind (She's gonna change her mind)
And I will take her out tonight
And I will treat her kind (I'm gonna treat her kind)

You’re Going to Lose That Squirrel - Beatles

Since I met her from the start
I'm so proud I am the only one
