20 songs

I looked at the "20 songs" meme in filkerdave's journal, and now my mind is churning with lines that would be interesting to make a quiz of.

Here are lines (or perhaps half lines or pairs of lines -- it's sometimes hard to tell what's officially one line) from 20 songs. About half are songs by filkers, but they are all songs I've learned in filk. Identify them. I'll post the answers in a week or so.
  1. All of the parents are running around
  2. And he must be keeper of the garden
  3. And now I know for certain the world is round
  4. But how I miss those desert skies, your cold touch in the night
  5. But now it's gone a bit too far; I don't see why it's me
  6. I am the name in the writing on the wall
  7. I sit on the fringes with the spazzes and the fakes
  8. It doesn't last, but she knows what will
  9. It won't be pretty in Atlantic City
  10. Know the etiology and calculate the tensors
  11. No poisons with names that we can't understand
  12. Rats gnawing cables in two
  13. Take wing on the wind and the odor of lilies
  14. The finest drink that any bar has ever had for sale
  15. The warm breeze blows gently and the red poppies dance
  16. The wave that carried us up the beach
  17. There are days I swear I would rather have the proportionate strength of a praying mantis
  18. Thought you, my lord, that I had no kin?
  19. To love a creature of the air
  20. We took these old guitars and proved them wrong
