Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 233 (GOLQ233)
Message-ID: <>


Welcome to GOLQ 233. I began this quiz with a theme idea but had to add
some songs that don't fit the theme in order to cover certain time periods
and portions of the alphabet. These songs, including the tie-breakers, are
from the 1956-1969 timespan. I used only recordings that were in my
collection so that I wouldn't make the mistake of putting in lyrics I know
from a different rendition of a song that turn out not to be part of the
one I'm including in the quiz. I hope that none of the songs I chose were
represented in my collection as an album or alternate version from which I
chose lyrics that weren't part of the hit single.

Have fun!

It's so strange
Never noticed the world all around me
Hey look I've changed
My attitude's been rearranged

There's a place for us
A time and place for us
Hold my hand and we're halfway there
Hold my hand and I'll take you there

So come on everybody get your baggies and bikinis
'Cause it's only just begun
We're gonna have a ball until the fall now

While at a dance
My baby by my side,
He whispers to me
Someday I'll be his bride

Everybody loves me, yes they do
And I love everybody
Since I fell in love with
Fell in love with
Fell in love with you

Falling in love is part of the fun
Falling in love is everyone
Stop being shy
Come on now, give it a try
Oh, my, my, my, my

Had no lovin' since you know when
You know I love you
Yes I do
And I'm saving all my lovin' just for you

I'm bettin' you're not losing
Sleep over me
But if I'm wrong
Don't fail to call
Come over and keep me company

No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation

All alone I'm destined to be
With misery my only company
It may come today and it might come tomorrow
But it's for sure I ain't got nothing but sorrow

When somebody sneezed
It rolled off the table
And onto the floor

I read in a book
About love and its charms
But I, I never knew
Til I held you in my arms

The meat is on the stove
The bread's a-gettin' hot
Everybody running
Got the possum in the pot

It happens every day
No matter what you say
You find it happens all the time

'Cause he gets up in the morning
And he goes to work at nine
And he comes back home at 5:30
Gets the same train every time

And in the mornings I can see them walkin'
I can no longer keep my blinds drawn
And I can't keep myself from talkin'

Cheer up sleepy Jean
Oh what can it mean?

Ah, that girl of mine
By my side
The silver moon and the evening tide
Oh, some sweet day
Gonna take away this hurt inside

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me
Like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me
With dreams untold

And when my man finally comes home
He makes me glad it happened that way
Because to be his woman
No price is too great to pay

And love is a stranger
Who beckoned you on
Don't think of the danger
Or the stranger is gone

I don't know what to do
Please my baby
I'm so lonely
Darling what am I gonna do?

If only you could see the dreams that seem to mean so much to me
Then you'd know the reason why
I would love to say "I do"
Than say "goodbye" and let you go forever

My life has been empty
My heart has been torn
It must have been rainy
The night I was born

Who took that look away?
I remember how you used to say
You'd never change, but that's not true


And if you say the word
I could stay with you

He likes it greasy
And sticky
And gooey
And salty
I said what do you like
He says you know what I like
