Subject: CORRECTION(S) to Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 238 (GOLQ238)

**** REVISED VERSION (11/3/06)  ****
Due to an egregious error by the GOLQ238 Research Department (uh, that would
be yours truly), the original song I used for #T2 was ineligible.  The
updated version of the quiz, with a different song #T2, appears below.
Thanks to Mike Weaver for pointing out this error!

all, no blindly searching for lyrics on the Internet.  Ignoring these
reminders will cause you to get demoted back to the "children's table" at

Good and bad
Big or small
In and out
None at all

You can make this beggar a king
A clown or a poet

It's a cozy table, isn't it?
And champagne, my dear!

Meanwhile, I was thinkin' ...
She's in the mood, no needin' break it
I got a chance, I oughtta take it

I'll make you happy
You'll never be blue
You'll have no sorrow
'Cause I'll always be true

That's what the good book says

Poor Otis, dead and gone
Left me here to sing his song
Pretty little girl with the red dress on
Poor Otis, dead and gone

Here comes Boy
Singing a song
And Cheetah listening
Says he's kinda slow

Now, listen everybody
I want you to listen to what I say, now, now, now
Everybody's gonna do it
All across the U.S.A.

I wonder if I keep on praying
Will our dreams be the same?
I wonder if you ever think of me too

May others plan their future
I'm busy loving you

There's an island in the Caribbean Sea
Where the natives dance and rock with glee

Tell me the name of your sweetheart
Now, you're the little girl I used to chase around the block

There's a new dance on the streets and it's mean, baby, mean
(Mean, baby, mean, mean, baby, mean)
It wipes the African Twist right off of the scene
(Right off of the scene, right off of the scene)

Filled with regret, I come back begging you
Forgive, forget, where's the love we once knew?

Well-a who's that guy you've been seeing most every day?
He shouldn't be allowed to come and take my baby away

Once you get it
You never wanna quit

I'm looking at myself, reflections of my mind
It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind

Domino, Checker, and Presley
Help to make things right

Action speaks louder than words
And I'm a man with great experience
I know you got you another man
But I can love you better than him

Don't let him tell you that he wants you
'Cause he can't give you love which isn't there

If they gave me a fortune
My pleasure would be small
I could lose it all tomorrow
And never mind at all

It's my thing!
I'm gonna do what I wanna do!

You say you never been kissed before
You always leave 'em standing at the door
And when they try to kiss you, you just say goodbye
You always tell 'em "no" and never tell 'em why

It's nothing like I ever thought it would be
Someone opened up a door for me


My girl says when I kiss her lips
She gets a thrill through her fingertips

He told me not to worry
That my cavity just needed fillin'
