Lyrics Quiz: Bed

Bed-related lyrics quiz.

  1. These are the days when you wish your bed was already made.
  2. She got pictures on the wall, they make me look up from her big brass bed. Now I'm running down the road, trying to stay up - somewhere in her head.
  3. Well by the force of will, my lungs are filled and so I breathe. Lately it seems this big bed is where I never leave.
  4. Giving me head on the unmade bed, while the limousines wait in the street.
  5. Sleight of hand and twist of fate. On a bed of nails she makes me wait.
  6. I got up to wash my face. When I come back to bed, someone's taken my place.
  7. But I kind of like the feel of this extra few feet in my bed.
  8. I get up in the evening and I ain't got nothing to say. I come home in the morning. I go to bed feeling the same way.
  9. I can't sleep 'cause my bed's on fire. Don't touch me, I'm a real live wire.
  10. "Hey, that was great," he said, "I wish we could stay in bed. But I got to be at work in less than an hour."
  11. Tuesday, Wednesday, stay in bed. Or Thursday, watch the walls instead.
  12. ...Fifteen of those are nights. Can't sleep when the bed sheet fights its way back to your side.

Bonus: I don't know any of their songs but I like this line by the Handsome Family: "Liza Minnelli spent a month in her bed, certain that Skylab would fall on her head."
