Only 10 of 15.  >:(

But in at least one case, now I know I've been misshearing a lyric for all my life.
"It is required of every man that the spirit within him should walk abroad among his fellow-men, and travel far and wide."--Charles Dickens.

11/15 -- That was fun.  Some of those were kinda obscure verses. I think I must've learned just the first verse on a lot of songs!  :P 8)

Oops, only 6 correct, 5 of which were lucky guesses. A lot of those carols I've never heard of.

13 out of 15!

It's incredible, the amount of mental junk that accumulates in your memory over the decades.   ;)

I was surprised to have gotten only 9 out of 15 right. Only one of those songs I didn't recognize. Most of the answers that I did get right I did so without guessing.
