β€œBorrow the Lyrics Challenge” was created by PJ β€” I’m Sorry for the Inconvenience.



  1. You need to choose a verse from a song and use it in an original poem or story.
  2. You must include the name of the song and the singer at the end or beginning.
  3. You need to challenge someone else and invent ONE rule they need to follow.
  4. You must credit the person who started this challenge and the person who challenged you (see above.)
  5. You must include the rules of this challenge.

The song I chose was “Goody Two Shoes” by Adam Ant – Writer(s): GODDARD STUART LESLIE, PIRRONI MARCO (2).  The particular verse I honed in on was the chorus:

Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
 There must be something inside (1)

I love poetry but as you can see I am going for original story of the stream of consciousness kind.  I’m an 80’s baby y’all.  This song and MTV were huge influences on me as a teen.  My parents would walk by and see what was on the TV then ask “What the heck are you watching???” 

Mind you there was no censorship but the same question WTH?? with a shake of the head like not my style.  My parents were very you do you.  I was very fortunate for that I think.  I remember my Aunt Jo talking to my mother saying they told their kids/my cousins everything because they wanted to control the content.  No matter how “adult” the topic was my cousins knew about it and they’d share with us.  My mother finally broke down and would say she didn’t want us to get wrong info out on the street somewhere.

The only rules we had growing up were do your chores and don’t break the laws outside this house. Oh and the ten Commandments.  Don’t break any of those either.

As the youngest, I had plenty examples of what not to do.  That made me the proverbial “goody two shoes”.  I could do basically anything I wanted (within reason) which might be why I chose not to partake.  Never mind I had earned a nickname of “1/2 Beer Jill”.  Sometimes the best lessons come from delinquency.  (1)

(3) Now I choose Jim Adams to join in should he agree to participate.  My new rule for Jim is to choose a song based on an element – air, water, wind or fire (6).

As always, more to come.
