Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 282 (GOLQ282)


Welcome to GOLQ282!  All 25 songs and the two tie breakers are linked
together with one of two easily identifiable and related themes.  Many of
the more well-known songs we intended to use turned out to be ineligible
due to the re-use rule.  Consequently, in order to find eligible songs that
fit the main theme, we had to settle for a number of "stumpers," but they
should be easier to identify once the themes are determined.

My daughter didn't listen
I told her you're a clown
She should've taken my advice
She should've shopped around

Well, you treat me just like dirt
And you think that it doesn't hurt
You say I look so funny
Every time you put me down

He's a clown, that

And I'm as happy as a clown
With my two fists of iron
But I'm goin' nowhere

Your daddy told you long ago
Not to come in late no more
Running over town just like a clown

You've got me jumping
Like a crazy clown

His girl just walked away
And to this very day he says
He never loved her anyway

He plays a winning part while memories crush his heart
Yet he goes on laughing like a clown

Time after time
I have tried to say goodbye to you
But somehow when I try to leave you
I just can't go, I love you so

Now when I ask for some money
To go out on the town
I want you to hand it to me smiling
And don't you be no clown

Make way for the fool hearted clown

I suppose that the number
Is far from being small

There were clowns and elephants and dancing bears

The man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud

When he looked around he saw a clown
And the clown seemed very gay

After all you`ve done to me
The times you`ve turned me down
I still will be your clown

You taught me how to love
And now you say that we are through

Can`t let you know,
I love you so,
You love someone else, so on with the show

Gather round all you clowns

Who knows where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say

Clouds and clowns
You don't have to come down

Be-bop and jive
Rock and roll
Come on everybody let's do the stroll

We live in a world
Of carnivals and clowns
And buildings to the sky
That make us want to fly

Like a clown
Don't let your heart break down

They're saying I am just your clown
And any fool could see
That you're just having fun
And you're not in love with me


Although I laugh and I act like a clown

It's just a ragged clown behind
I wouldn't pay it any mind
