Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 262 (GOLQ262)


Welcome to the November edition of the quiz.

Two mini-themes connect several of the recordings, but other than that,
it's the usual random collection of tunes.  Enjoy!

When I tell you that I love you, oh
You're gonna say you love me too, oh-oh
And when I ask you to be mine
You're gonna say you love me too

Sometimes it hurts
So badly I must cry out loud
I am lonely

I will meet you
And I'll greet you

I'll never set her free
For she's mine, all mine

I'm just your puppet on a string
And tears sometimes it brings
But do me any way you wanna, when you wanna
I'll keep lovin' you just the same

Being near you is all that I'm living for
You've shown me more kindness in little ways
Than I've ever known in all my days

Soon, my love, you'll obey your wandering heart
Thrill my lips as you've always thrilled them
'Til my lips are mine no more

Raised up in Kentucky
In a cabin cold and bare
Readin' by the fireside
He got his learnin' there

With her pretty smile
She's 'bout to drive me crazy
Makes my heart beat wild

If by chance you found somebody new
And you don't know what to say or do
I'd feel better when I called you
If you asked me not to phone

Now, you don't live in a beautiful place
And you don't dress with the best of taste
And nature didn't give you such a beautiful face

His runnin' and hidin' didn't make much sense
For the jury had ruled it was self-defense

'Cause he's got it
She's got it
And they've got it
Oh, and I've got it

We had a busy day
I'm learning the alphabet

The Revolutionary War was won by General George
And his starving band of ragged men
Who fought at Valley Forge

Now you say, every time you need some affection
The one you love goes in another direction
You just sit back in a daze reminiscin'
'Cause you know some other lips he's been kissin'

It's over, it's said, it's done
Don't let your heart break down
He's not the only one

I know you want to see me
But you're afraid
Of what I might have on my mind

That's where I'll buy the ring
For the girl in the house

It's the start of my happiness
And the end of my loneliness

Passionate, warm, vivacious, eyes sparkling, alive
And screwed-up

Singin' all the people down
Talkin' around, talkin' around

My love is strong, you see
I know you'll never get tired of me, oh baby
I'm gonna use every trick in the book
To try my best to get you hooked, oh baby

I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Oh, someone warm like you
Would make my dream come true

Tell you a story
May seem hard to believe in, kind of deceivin'
All of my glory
Made me much more aware of the problem we share
If we unite, it'll all turn out right

Flyin' across the desert in a TWA
I saw a woman walkin' across the sand
She been a-walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay

Was a time that I thought our love could fly
And never, never fall (never fall, never fall, never never fall, never fall)
Why should I suppose we were never really meant
To be close to each other at all
