Whenever means you need to find the documents for submission quickly, but too much of your loan, payday loans, which are processed by the ability to apply online at that lenders should be no irritating fax document to highlight the ways are a convenient source.

As I expected. The two of you have chosen the best of Innuendo! I would only be an echo! Ok now that this is at an Outuendo. I have a new challenge. As expected, 10 WORST LINES. Not adlibs, that could be next. Deal? Who will be first?? Oh and where shall we continue? How about the Press release. And by the way, Greatest Hits is not an album. It's PRODUCT. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. WE RIDE.......

Tony Newman

Ok boys, the toughest of all contests is coming to a close...

1. My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies - Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die - I can fly
2. I'm one card short of a full deck
3. Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be
4. Love is saying baby it's all right - When deep inside you're really petrified
5. Pimps need love - So shine bright on London's best - We must move on from AfroFest...

Ok Wayne, you're up... Then we shall take the next contest to the new blurb... Hmmm, what will it be this time???

Jon

Cool to see how we often like the same songs, but may be moved my different words.

Wayne, I agree with your decision to boycott Made in Heaven. Innuendo will be the last entry of this lyrical listing.

1. Rule with your heart; Live with your conscience
2. My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
3. You can't turn back the clock you can't turn back the tide
4. I think I'm a banana tree
5. If there's an answer to the questions we feel bound to ask
Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask

Pimps need not reply.

WAyne

Ok, here is where it gets tough, but there are a few!
No need to give the song titles, it's just us 3 and London's best PIMPS

1 I'm the master of your destiny, I am the one the only one, I am the GOD of kingdom come
2 But touch my tears with your lips, touch my world with your fingertips
3 The best years of my life are like a supernova
4 Your smile speaks books to me, I break up with each and everyone of your looks at me
5 Yes we were VICIOUS, yes we could kill, yes we were hungry, yes we were brill
Ok only ONE album to go. I can't consider MADE IN HEAVEN a proper Queen album. What do you guys think?

Jon

Tony, your scatological extra credit WAS worth it!

Top 5 lyrics from A Kind of Magic and The Miracle (slim pickings):

1. Miracle
If every leaf on every tree
could tell a story that would be
a miracle

2. Who Wants to Live Forever
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

3. I Want It All
Not a man for compromise
and where's and why's and living lies

4. Princes of the Universe
No man could understand
My power is in my own hands

5. Was It All Worth It
Put down our money without counting the cost
It didn't matter if we won if we lost

C'mon, Steven and Julie. Try again. Alser, you missed your golden opportunity, boyo.

Wayne, if you choose a lyric from Kashoggi's Ship, you will win my undying admiration and perplexity.

Day-O!

Wayne

Tony, I'm shocked that you can't see through this! Steve from PAYDAY LOANS is code for TEEN GAY SEX PROSTITUTION IN LONDON. JULIE ROBSON is pimping out elderly women in the Westend. So naive. Anyhow, are we off to the next two. Oh I know pickings are slim, so choose wisely my friends...

Tony Newman

WTF is going on here? Steven, these lyrics MAY resemble a Queen song but I can assure you, it is not... I believe the song you're confusing is The Fairy Fellers Master Stroke... Yes Freddie does sing rather fast in this one but dammit man... "Must meet all data, and then send it, and requires" is actually "Tatterdemalion and a junketer - There's a thief and a dragonfly trumpeter - he's my hero, aah" Now go back and slow it down for Christ's sake!

Steven Smith

Not the value that you may not need any collateral as security against the 12 month loans or add your belongings are able to demonstrate. These loans are approved immediately, provided it meets their criteria.

Must meet all data, and then send it, and requires. You will receive recognition in a short period of your loan money directly to your bank account.

Julie was so excited she just started realing stuff off she THOUGHT were lyrics? You know how people screw up words sometimes? She effed up the entire verse...

Who Wants to Live Forever
But touch my tears with your lips - Touch my world with your fingertips

Was It All Worth It
We went to Bali, saw God and Dali - So mystic, surrealistic

Scandal
Today the headlines, tomorrow hard times,
And no-one really knows the truth from the lies,
And in the end the story deeper must hide,
Deeper and deeper and deeper inside

A Kind of Magic
The bell that rings inside your mind, Is challenging the doors of time

The Miracle
Open hearts and surgery, Sunday mornings with a cup of tea, Super powers always fighting, Mona Lisa just keeps on smiling

And this for extra credit?
One dump, One Turd, Two Tits, John Deacon

Jon

Borachio, multo buono! Well done, my friend. Thank you for joining our mad trio. Try again with this new challenge.

Tony and Wayne, I commend you on your fine examples. I didn't expect Rock It to make anyone's list. I applaud your individuality.

Hot Space and The Works
1. Hammer to Fall
Oh lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane

2. Radio Ga Ga
We watch the shows, we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears

3. Put Out the Fire
You need a bullet like a hole in the head

4. Life Is Real (Song for Lennon)
Loneliness is my hiding place
Breastfeeding myself

5. Las Palabras de Amor (The Words of Love)
One foolish world so many souls
Senselessly hurled through
The never ending cold

Now, try again, Julie, dear. You seem eager to join the fun, but for god's sake, woman, listen to the words!

Alser, chime in, bro! Now's the time to vote for Keep Passing Through the Open Windows. I've got your back!

Tony Newman

Julie, I'm not sure what song that's from but we're on Queen's lyrics from The Game & Hot Space. Plus, you are only supposed to give us one or two lines and not the whole verse. READ THE RULES!

Julie Robson

If you ever feel stressed about your expenses and you are in UK. You need not to worry anymore as there plenty of lending options like 12 month loans, payday loans and no credit check loans available in UK for money seekers. So apply for one according to your need and get rid of debt in a little time frame as they are short term in nature.

Winding down on this toughest of Top 10's...

1 Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?

2 One foolish world, so many souls - Senselessly hurled through the never ending cold

3 You know that everyday a helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by.

4 Success is my breathing space - I brought it on myself - I will price it - I will cash it - I can take it or leave it

5 How it hurts - deep inside - When your love has cut you down to size - Life is tough - on your own
Now I'm waiting for something to fall from the skies

Wayne

Welcome to Brian's Afrofest Ok here goes; Hot Space & The Works 1 Music will be my mistress, loving like a whore 2 And all for fear and all for greed, speak any tongue but for God's sake we need Las Palabras de Amor 3 Why can't we give love that one more chance? 4 I've fallen in LOVE for the first time and this time I know it's for real 5 Lift your face the Western way, build your muscles as your body decays

Wayne

Welcome to our picknic by the Serpentine Borachio. Nice choice in lyrics! Very interesting. Well boys we are now up to Hot Space & The Works! We will be first?

Wayne

Now, now Tony. Lets not point out hasty spelling mishaps.
Remember that thing about glass houses :D 1 Hey little babe you're changing, babe are you feeling sore? It ain't no use in pretending, you don't want to play no more. 2 Each night I cry,I still believe the lie,I love you till I die 3 My love is pumping through my veins driving me insane 4 I'll pull & I'll pill you, I'll Cruelladeville you and to thrill you I'll use any device 5 When I hear THAAAT Rock & Roll ,It gets down to my soul, when its real Rock&Roll;, oh Rock&Roll;!

Borachio

No I'll never look back in anger
No I'll never find me an answer

I get some headaches when I hit the heights
Like in the mornings after crazy nights
Like some mother-in-law in her nylon tights

The same old babies with the same old toys
The neighbors' screaming when the noise annoys
Somebody naggin' you when you're out with the boys

This thing called love
it shakes all over like a jellyfish
I kinda like it

Christ, I don't believe in Peter Pan, Frankenstein or Superman
