Siren Song: Finish That Thought Quiz

Think you’ve got your head wrapped around Siren Song? Put your knowledge to the test. Good luck — the Stickman is counting on you!
Q. This is the one song everyone


would like to learn
can sing
forgets
knows and loves
Q. Will you get me out of this


tragedy
island
bird suit
boat
Q. I don't enjoy it here squatting on this island


looking picturesque and mythical
with feathery maniacs
as men leap overboard
every day
Q. I will tell the secret to you,


and everyone else
to you, only to you
if you get me out of this bird suit
if you sing with me
Q. Alas it is a boring song


but you are unique
that is fatal and valuable
but it works every time
but I sing it anyway
