Loop: Guess the sketch and other things

  • King of the Road quiz

    I suspect many of you will remember Roger Miller’s hit King of the Road. Today’s challenge is to fill in the missing word or words as indicated by Xs in the lyrics below. Where there is more than one word you must get each word correct for the point. And note that where the lyrics refer to numbers they are spelt as words. No use of reference material or the internet of course to ensure fair play. Good luck.


    REMEMBER - NO POSTS instead you PM me with your guesses any time up to midnight tonight. If possible, please wait until you've completed all the guesses you want to make to avoid too many PMs and to make my job easier. So no hurry and it doesn't matter when you submit the answers because I'll be judging them solely on who has the most correct - and in the event of two or more being level it will be a tie. I hope this is clear and good luck. Tomorrow I’ll post the names of the top entries


    Trailer for sale or rent
    Rooms to let, 50 cents
    No phone, no pool, no pets
    I ain't got no cigarettes
    Ah, but two hours of pushing broom
    Buys an eight by 12 four-bit room
    I'm a man of means, by no means
    King of the road
    Third boxcar, midnight train
    Destination: Bangor, Maine
    Old worn out suit and shoes
    I don't pay no union dues
    I smoke, old stogies I have found
    Short, but not too big around
    I'm a man of means, by no means
    King of the road
    I know every engineer on every train
    All of the children and all of their names
    Every handout in every town
    Every lock that ain't locked when no one's around
    I sing, trailers for sale or rent
