Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 224 (GOLQ224)


Welcome to GOLQ #242.  There is no theme, but all of the songs,
including the tie-breakers, have something in common with each other.
If we have our usual flood of 500++ entrants, we will discriminate among
the perfect scores by giving additional credit to those who have been able
to identify what's in common.

Have fun! And Happy New Year!

A honeymoon hotel
Two weeks of love in bloom
A few uncertain months
And then a bleak and lonely room

Down in F-L-A

I fuss with my woman
And I toil with my kids
I sweat 'til I'm
Wrinkled and gray

Those days of pretzels and soda and beer

But to give to you and to give to me
Love forever true

But here on the sand I can dream away
Or look at the girls if they're pretty

The caterpillar sheds his skin
To find a butterfly within

She said that she'd meet me at a quarter to nine
Believe it or not, but she was right on time

With the sky so full of stars and the river so full of song
Every heart should be so thankful

I'm just a fella with a one, one track mind

You took the vow with me, yeah,
And you spoke it, and you spoke it

I'm not too proud to shout it
Tell the world about it
That I love you

You know you done me wrong, baby
And you'll be sorry some day

I know five hun'rd don't sound like much (cheap)
But just try to find somebody to touch

They always will haunt me although we're apart

I need you, oh my darling
Like roses need rain

If you're wondering what I'm asking in return, dear
You'll be glad to know that my demands are small
Say it's me that you'll adore
Now and forevermore

Just you know why,
Why you and I
Will by and by know

Sunset I laugh, sunrise I cry
Midnight I'm in-between, and wondering why

You know I'll be your slave
If you ask me to
But if you don't behave
I'll walk right out on you

I want you back again
I want your love again
I know you find it hard to reason with me

I know that I know my own heart
But you say I'm trying to rush

I just want some reaction
Someone to give me satisfaction
All I want to do is stick with you
'Cause I love you

Blown by wind, kissed by the snow
All that's left is the dark below

You know he treats me bad, makes me sad
Makes me cry but I can't deny
That I still love him


There's one for you
Nineteen for me

And still on a winter's night, they say, when the wind is in the trees
When the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas
When the road is a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor
