Make a Phrase

Click to show this thread's original post ▼

Hello CL Friends,

Copying this game from another forum. The game is very easy. Someone lists a word. Next player takes the word and makes a common, known phrase. After that, leave the next word.

So, for example, "bird." Two birds in the hand is worth two in the bush."

Next player, "Phone."

E.T. phone home.

Any quote or phrase that, mostly, lol, others will recognize.

I will start with.............

money

I will pray for you. 🙂 I loved to fly kites as a kid. We have a place here where the adults fly big kites. It's fun to watch and take photos.

I used to fly kites with the boys, and my ex was big into buying fancy kites out of some kite catalog he would order from.

You know what happens to snitches.

No, it's not an original. My mom knows all these old songs, lol. My grandma taught me a few "doozies," too. My mom was singing one when we were on the boat to snorkeling, and this guy was just amazed by how he knew none of the songs she was coming up with.

I just HAD to look it up, and NOW I remember how it starts out, "My mom gave me a nickel to buy a pickle, but I didn't buy a pickle, I bought some chewin' gum!" haha. This is really bringing ME way back. You can even get it for your iPod. We can find almost EVERY single thing online today, can't we? lol!

Here are the lyrics:

And here is the song with the tune, so you can hear the kind of songs my mom grew up singing, lol:

A good burp is the sign of a good meal.

Hope, Songs used to be so innocent. I love all the big band music in this song. My mom sang us songs too. Thanks for sharing the link.
