Period Musical Lyrics Game

Bonus Question: What musical does this photo come from?

It's been a while since I posted a lyrics quiz so here's one where I tried to keep the song titles out of the lyrics. Here's a fun game for you! Keep in mind that these musicals all have a historical time period setting to them and aren't modern day. 

To Play: Read the lyrics below and guess the song titles and which period set musicals they come from. Also guess the what musical the photo at the top of this post comes from. I'll respond with your score. Guess as many times as you wish. Answers will be posted next Saturday.

Scoring: Five points for each correctly guessed song title and musical. Five points for correctly guessing the Bonus Question. A high score of 125 points can be earned. 


Musical Song Lyrics:

Song #1

There's a sad sort of clanging
From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple, too
And up in the nursery
An absurd little bird
Is popping out to say coo-coo


Song #2

We never said our love was evergreen,
or as unchanging as the sea -
but if you can still remember,
stop and _____ __ __


Song #3

I dreamed last night I got on the boat to Heaven
And by some chance I had brought my dice along
And there I stood and I hollered, "Someone fade me"
But the passengers, they knew right from wrong


Song #4
Are you the sweet invention
Of a lover's dream
Or are you really as
Beautiful as you seem


Song #5
Who cares what they're wearing
On main street or Seville row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe that matters


Song #6
Toot sweets sound like what they are
So do lollys in a lollypop jar
Gingerbread men have a gingerbread sound, we've found
Sugar plum cinnamon and lemon tart tell you what they are right from the 
start
And your name does the same for you
By coincidence, _____ ___________
You're truly _____ ___________
Scrumptious as a cherry peach parfait


Song #7
While shivering in my shoes
I strike a careless pose
And _______ _ _____ ____
And no one ever knows
I'm afraid.

The result of this deception
Is very strange to tell
For when I fool the people
I fear I fool myself as well!


Song #8
Someone use to cradle them and kiss them when the cried
Did you see them lying side by side?
Who will wake them?
No one ever will


Song #9
My dad said "Be an actor, my son
But be a comical one
They'll be standing in lines
For those old honky tonk monkeyshines"
Now you could study Shakespeare and be quite elite
And you can charm the critics and have nothin' to eat
Just slip on a banana peel
The world's at your feet


Song #10
There's a bright golden haze in the meadow
There's a bright golden haze in the meadow
The corn is as high as an elephants side
And it looks like its climbin' clear up to the sky


Song #11
Still, ____ _ ________
Is better than half a penny
Is better than half a farthing
Is better than none
It’s a token of
Our eternal love
When you’re far away
Touch it everyday
And, though, that ____ _ ________
Can only mean half a romance
Remember that half a romance
Is better than none


Song #12
When the rhythm pounds
And the harmony sounds
And the melody rolls around
"Prest-o Change-o!"
We're ___ ____ ___ ___ ______
And when the rhythm pounds
And the harmony sounds
And the melody rolls around
Right from the down beat,
We can be found
___ ____ ___ ___ ______

Song 2: The Phantom of the Opera. The Song is 'Think of Me' and the missing words are "think of me"
