Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 286 (GOLQ286)


In my last quiz (#279) in April, I wrote "... as the Yankees begin pursuit of
their 28th championship."  Update:  Never mind.

There are no intended global themes, although one mini-theme connects 4 of
the recordings.  Enjoy!

I can hear the choo-choo callin' me on
To a fancy new address
Yes, I can hear that choo-choo callin' me on
Onboard the Happiness Express

If you need love and affection
Come to my lovin' arms
I'll be your shield and protection
I won't do you no harm

Gonna throw the picture away
You didn't love me any old way
You found somebody new
And our romance is through

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time

And that we'll never part
And you know that I need you
I'm keeping you here in my heart

But when you made your wish, dear
I was wishin' too
That I'd be sayin' "Happy Birthday"
Your whole life through

But when Saturday rolls around
I'm too tired for havin' fun

And she causes quite a stir
Just by walkin' in the room
Oh, I wish I were her
Now you're dancing very near her
Just like sweethearts do

Everything seems lovely
When you start to roam
But here's what you'll be saying
When you're far from home

Did you know lies can be seen in your eyes?
And from wrong you'll never be free
No use in cryin'

Half out, half in
Not quite out of love with you
Not too much in love with him

I done told you, big bad bulldog

She was long and lean
And you know what that means
She's a good lovin' mama
A hard-workin' woman
She makes a lot of money
I don't have to worry about a thing

All that I am askin'
All I want from you
Just love me like I love you
And it won't be hard to do

Just like they did it back in 1910

Eyes that hypnotize
And all it takes is just one glance
Just one look at him
Puts me in a lover's trance

There's a whole generation
With a new explanation

You did me dirty
But you'll get yours one day

Well, she goes struttin' down the street
In her sophisticated style
The way she's dressed was a-knockin' 'em wild
The cats started gapin' 'til they called her out

You've been runnin' all over town, now
Oh, guess I have to put your flat feet on the ground

For every little kiss, there's a little teardrop
For every single thrill, there's another heartache
The road is rough, the going gets tough

Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor's lives
Rich man, poor man, beautiful daughters, wives

Every day, there's something new
You pull out your bag and your fine to-do
You got me trying new things too
Just so I can keep up with you

You take some music, music
Sweet flowin' music
Some movin' and groovin'

It was only yesterday
Your words are still fresh in my mind
Baby, you said long as rivers flow, each day you'll love me more
Now you wanna leave me behind


I wanna tell her that I love her a lot
But I gotta get a belly full of wine

Do the sugarfoot rag, side by side
A-flyin' low and a-flyin' wide
