Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 245 (GOLQ245)


Welcome to GOLQ 245. I consider this to not be a difficult quiz. In fact, I
think that some of the included lyrics are among the most recognizable of
all time. There is a theme to this quiz, and once you figure out the theme,
it may help you determine the songs you have not yet identified. So, if you
have not participated in a GOLQ in a while, this may be the time for you to
jump back in. All recordings, including the tie-breakers, are from the
1955-1969 timespan.

Have fun!

You ought to come and see
His pretty bar
And his brand new car

You say you fear I'll change my mind
I won't require you

Got a back beat you can't lose it
Any old time you use it

You walked out of my dreams
Into my arms
Now you're my angel divine

Here it is another weekend
I ain't got nobody
Man if I was back home
I'd be swinging two chicks on my arm

A pretty little raven at the bird bandstand
Taught him how to do the bop and it was grand

I've been cheated
Been mistreated

Built big houses by the score
Won't need teepees any more
Although they changed our ways of old
They'll never change our heart and souls

I don't want to lose this good thing
That I've got
If I do I will surely
Surely lose a lot

Oh yes I know that your lips are sweet
But our lips must never meet
I belong to somebody else
And I must be true

Don't stop cookin'
It feels so good yeah
Hey-eey but don't stop now
Hey come on

It's growing in the street
Right up through the concrete

You got to swing your hips now
Come on baby
Jump up jump back
Well I think you got the knack

Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue

Please check and see
Just one more time for me

Any time you want to
You can turn me on to
Anything you want to
Any time at all

It's important to me
That you know you are free
Cause I never want to make you change for me

I don't believe you
You're not the truth
No one could look as good as you

Come with me
My love
To the sea

My love will be so sound
It'll take about a hundred lifetimes to live it down
Wear it down
Tear it down

Time, time, time
See what's become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities
I was so hard to please

Baby comin' now I'm hurryin' home
I know she's leavin' cause I'm takin' too long

Love is a losing game
And love can be a shame

I was born to love you
And I will never be free
You'll always be a part of me

Where oh where can my baby be?


I felt the earth turn in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love

Everywhere I go you know
Bad luck follows me
Every time I fall in love
You know I'm left in misery
