Hello everyone and welcome to the December edition of the quiz.

For this quiz, there are two themes. They are closely related to one
another; so closely related in fact that in common speech one could
be a synonym for the other. There are at least two "two-fers".

Usually themed quizzes create a situation where there are necessary 
forays into the more Southern regions of the Billboard charts. You may
find that to be true in this case. So how hard is this quiz? I would
say that several lyric sets would rate about a 10 (on the Mohs scale).

Best December holiday wishes to everyone.

You can dog like a female monkey
But you swim like a stone

A man can't break a stone
So he tries another lick
Iceman can't cut his ice, no
So he buys another pick

I press you, caress you
And bless the day
You taught me to care
To always remember
The rambling rose
You wear in your hair

James Brown says uh
Now Wilson Pickett says uh uh
Otis Redding says uh uh uh
And everybody say

Eyes black as coal
And when he lifts his face
Every ear in the place is on him

As you sit by the window
Bewitched by a star

The child was unhurt
And my neighbor cried out
Oh, who was that brave girl so sweet

Whats that I see
A great big stone wall
Stands there ahead of me
But Ive got my pride

This stone is genuine
Like love should be
And if your baby's truer than
My baby was to me

If you can mend broken bones
And take out kidney stones
And do a little psychiatry
Then you ought to be able
To put me on the table

That Sammy hocked her car and chauffeur
He robbed her of her sparkling stones
Then he left her when all the dough was gone

You`ve been awful careful
'Bout the friends you choose
But you won`t find my name
In your book of who`s whos

I don`t want a chest
Full of gold
Just want someone
To have and to hold

A ring that's new
A borrowed necklace
Of sapphire blue
My love is only for you

I said hello to the man that tried to win your hand
A long time ago.
I tried to smile as he talked of the days
When he was your beau

The shadow on the wall
Tells me the sun is going down

Well, you`ve got your diamonds
And you`ve got your pretty clothes
And the chauffeur drives your cars
You let everybody know

Crazy way she thrills me, tell you why
She`s like a lightning from the sky
She loves to kiss me
'Til I can`t see straight

So don't be afraid,
To tell the world,
Just where, where you want to go

Mother said you were bad,
And I should leave you alone.
You had a playboy's reputation,
With all the girls you've known

I have no need of friendship
Friendship causes pain

He had emeralds and rubies just a-drippin' off-a him
And a ring on every finger of his hand

I hear your voice
And I must come to you
I have no choice
What else can I do

It`s gonna sparkle
It`s gonna shine
It`s gonna make me
Know you`re mine

She hit me with her high-heeled shoe
I got a big bump on the top of my head
She said "Well you're lucky that you are not dead"


And we all lose our charms
In the end
But square cut
Or pear shaped
These rocks don't lose their shape

Your love was genuine
Like love should be
And if you give me one more chance
I promise you will see
