Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 263 (GOLQ263)


Welcome to GOLQ #263, which has a specific theme, courtesy of "The Falk." 
In order to find eligible songs to fit the theme, we ended up with no
number one's and few top ten hits, so some may find the quiz a bit more
difficult than usual.  That having been said, every song in the quiz,
including both tiebreakers, is in some way related to the theme, so perhaps
that clue will help offset the level of difficulty.  Should multiple teams
tie for first place; e.g., identify all twenty five songs and the two tie
breakers, we will use our theme as a further tie breaker. Enjoy!

Tom and Rick

And the flowers and the trees
And the moon up above
And a thing called love

Oh, oh, I used to be a ladies man
But now she's got me
In the palm of her hand
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,

Well, I went to a turkey roast down the street
The people down there eat like wild geese

I tell you he keeps all the hens
Fighting among themselves
Keeps all the hens
Fighting among themselves

What's gone wrong with Mary, I hear them say
Mary's not the Mary of yesterday

Flowers for ladies of high fashion to wear

If you'd give me a chance
To love you one more time
Maybe my lips on yours
Could change your mind

Two breakfast foods
And some toothpaste on a pear tree

And everywhere that Mary went
Mary went, Mary went
Everywhere that Mary went
The lamb hollered, go, go, go

The little old ladies wait in wild anticipation
For the meetings of the double-A-C A-S-S-N

Love isn't just for tonight
Or two arms that hold me so tight
Love is a song that two must learn to sing

I need love and I want you, I do,
I wanna spend my life loving you.

Birds singing in the sycamore tree

Laying in the green grass
Sha la la la la......

A new identity I found
That I was born elite
With maids and servants at my feet

Come on, babe, follow me
Come on, babe, trust in me
Come on, babe, can't you see
Come on, babe, follow me

Come, they told me

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone
Going home

First you love me, yes; then you love me, no
I don`t know where I stand
Do we march together down the aisle
Or do I march that desert sand?

Suppose the streets were all on fire
The flames like tempers leaping higher
Suppose you'd lived there all your life
D'you think that you would mind?

Lovers walk along a shore
And leave their footprints in the sand
Was the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?

I never had a love so sweet
I never thought I'd be
Lucky enough to meet
A guy with all your charms
To hold me with loving arms

Mary, Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow
Silver bells and cockle shells
Pretty maids all in a row

But this boy wants to settle down
And you know he'd rather be with you

As time went on he did his best
And all could see he didn't jest
He practiced calling


Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

Woody knows nothing but pecking on a bough
Bough up in the blue
Never knew 'til I met you
What love oh love could do, could do
What love oh love could do
