While travelling to my desination I detained an aged fellow
With some expectation of speech not remembered, perhaps music from a time long past
He faced me in such a way that I felt certain he was remarking
That I should hurry, as my attendance upon her was anticipated.
"I hear the drums echoing tonight, but she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation.."

“Africa” - Toto


Song 6 is
Any chance you could add another couple of lines? Do you accept mastercard or visa?

Good work, Saulaac - I would've never guessed Toto - "Africa".

I've been banging my head against the wall on Song #6 also. Ouch.

I believe Mastercard and Visa are widely accepted in Ireland. TH, any more lines for us?

Yeah it’s a toughie, ribbons.

“Surely there must be a chivalrous person riding a horse breathing fire?” I can't tell who is breathing the fire? The cavalier/knight or the horse

Kinda gives a Return to Forever ‘Romantic Warrior’ vibe, but that’s an instrumental album. Oh well, TH please help us with another snippet!

Well done. Didn't think anyone would get that. Can't add any more lines to the last one though, as it's the chorus and that would give it away. I suppose I can do another verse but I doubt it will help, probably make it tougher. If you want a hint I can give you that.

Look at the line about gods and demigods and see if that clicks with ya. You're the one who always gets it from one line and I think that might be the one to clinch it for you.

Do you guys want to give up on the last song so I can post the next round? Or are you still working on it?

That was a close one, TH. I almost threw the towel in. "Late at night, I toss and I turn" was the clincher.

Ribbons and y'all, prepare for Trollheart's fiercest round yet!

Hey well done! Thought the "streetwise Hercules" would give it away, but nice. You see why I couldn't do the next line.

Okay, round 8 coming up shortly.

Haha. “streetwise Hercules” is original and hilarious, as was your take on it. I can just imagine “streetwise Hercules” being said in the voice of Pauline Calf, followed by “ooh, wasn't he was a naughty bugger”

Well done, Saulaac! No way I would have guessed that one.

Thanks for dreaming up all these lyrics, TH - not easy to do!

Fearing the next round.
