Becky's Island Music Trivia Quiz #84 - 10/2/02

Famous People in Songs, Part 2 - Non-Musicians

Just like last week, each of the lyric lines in this week's quiz mentions a real person. This time, however, the persons mentioned are not musicians. Look for presidents, sports figures, movie stars, and religious figures, among others. Be alert: sometimes only the first or last name is mentioned. The number of X's in the line indicates the number of missing words or initials.
