If you don't know chapter and verse it doesn't count. 🙂
On the other hand I know "John 3:16" but have no idea what the content of the verse is. 🙂
I had to learn a few psalms in school but cant remember more than a few lines. Something about laying down by still waters and "I shall not want" - notice the future tense 🙂
Most people know most of the lords prayer, though I think you would find that a surprising number have bits wrong or don't understand parts of it. I know thats the case with national anthems and Christmas carols.

Has anybody memorized the whole thing?
Does anybody know all the lineages by heart?
I did actually memorize a psalm as a boy, and still remember it all except its number, but its the one that starts "Praise ye the Lord, praise God in His sanctuary, praise Him in the firmament of His power. Praise Him for His mighty acts, praise Him according to His excellent greatness.... etc. etc.
Can't imagine why I committed it to memory, except perhaps I wanted to get all the musical instruments in the right order.
