Welcome to the May edition of the quiz.  So as to not disappoint my legions of
screaming fans, this one features my usual "in memoriam" theme.

As dessert, one of Bob Bluestein's puzzlers can be found at the end of the quiz.

I found a lifetime of pleasure
A little treasure
In the happiness of you

Way up high
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby

But each time that we kiss
I just know we'll be like this
Summer, winter, and fall

Much to my surprise
There stood my baby, lookin' in my eyes

So, before the light
Hold me again
With all of your might

I had a date for the hop last night
Up to her door, everything seemed right
But to my surprise, as I opened the door

I hear footsteps slowly walkin'
As they gently walk across a lonely floor
And a voice is softly sayin'
"Darling, this will be goodbye for evermore"

I'm full of cherry soda and potato chips
But now I want to get a taste of your sweet lips

You start a-rockin' and a-reelin' (rockin' and a-reelin')
Soon your arms and legs start flappin'
Like a hound dog mouth a-yappin'
You're a-rockin' and a-rollin'

He don't eat nothin' but-a bearcat stew

And please believe me
There's not another
There'll be no other one for me

Looking back over my false dreams that I once knew
Wondering why my dreams never came true

You worry me to death

Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
Gimme all the love you got
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
You got the best of lovin' now

Your kiss was such a sacred thing to me
I can't believe it's just a burning memory

I had laid such a tender trap
Hoping you might fall into it
But love hit me like a sudden slap
One kiss and then I knew it

The mirror, on reflection
Has climbed back upon the wall
For the floor she found descended
And the ceiling was too tall

Put his arms around your waist
Held you tight

Who is the coolest guy that is what am?
Fast-talkin', slow-walkin', good-lookin'

You little doll, all you do is play
You got a new baby every day

He used to act bad
Used to, but he quit
It makes me so sad
'Cause I know that he did it for me

Our dreams were meant for us to share

I only meant to love you
Didn't you know it, baby?
Didn't you know it?
Why couldn't you be content with the love I gave, oh yeah?

Ooh, tell me baby, whatcha gonna do
You got me sighin', got me wishin' for you
But I'm here to tell you one natural fact
(Cha cha-cha-cha cha-cha-cha-cha-cha)
I like it like that

But it takes somebody special
To make me say "I do"


If you treated me right
I never would've gone
If you treated me right
I never would have roamed
You can build a mansion, babe
But I never will come back home

You scored the point
And you won the game


Please fill in the following information (append at the end of each line):

Name(s) = 
E-mail address = 
Age(s) [will be published if provided] = 
Number of people (including you) who contributed to your answers = 



    Submission of an entry for this Puzzler is optional. Your participation
    or performance has no bearing whatsoever on your quiz score or ranking.
    Note that the diagram below has been designed to be printed using a
    fixed-width font such as Courier.

    Your task is to solve the clues below and place their answers - one
    letter per hexagon, excluding blanks and punctuation - appropriately
    in the diagram. Clue answers are linked in the given clue order
    head-to-tail in the diagram, i.e., the hexagon holding the last letter
    of any clue answer is the hexagon holding the first (same) letter of the
    next clue answer. An asterisk marks each hexagon where two answers link
    up. (Several other hexagons in the diagram are also used by more than one
    answer.) The middle hexagon (marked with the letter X) is where the chain
    both begins and ends. Every answer's letters must be entered in a straight
    line in any of six directions - heading out at 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, or
    12-o'clock. To start with, each hexagon contains a "special" letter, most
    of which are irrelevant. However when all clue answers' letters have
    been entered in the diagram, nine hexagons will remain unfilled by a clue
    answer. The "special" letters in these nine hexagons will rearrange to
    form a fittingly titled single, which reached #1 on Billboard's Top 100
    chart, #1 on Billboard's R&B Best Sellers chart, and the top 10 on the
    Country & Western Best Sellers In Stores chart.

    Good luck!
