Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 287 (GOLQ287)


Welcome to GOLQ287!  All 25 songs and the two tie breakers are linked
together with an easily recognizable theme that should help identify the
many middle-of-the-chart songs and the few real "stumpers."  'Tis the
season to be jolly, so have a "Mary" Christmas.

When we met I was sure out to lunch

Tried Betty Sue, tried Betty Lou
Tried Mary Lou

Them find no place to born she child
Not a single room was in sight

Well, you can talk about
Your Julie and your Peggy Sue
You can keep your Miss Molly
And your Mary Lou

I want you, I need you
You got me spinning like a top
I want you, I need you
You got me spinning like a top

For Mary, Mary drop the M's

Please don't mention the stagecoach
And the shot from a careless gun

Here I stand
My heart in my hand
A tear in my eye
I don't want to cry

Who walked in but Mary Jane
Lipstick all a mess

Someone told me you went with Joe
To the Friday night movie show
Don't you know you're supposed to be
Dating nobody else but me

Well, she come back into town about a week ago
Told me she was sorry that she hurt me so
I had a '55 Ford and a two dollar bill
When she took that, man it gave me a chill

Please don`t wake me up too late
Tomorrow comes and I will not be late
Late today when it becomes tomorrow
I will leave to go away

I couldn't bear to see her there
I'd be alone and blue
She'd be with someone new
Without a care

I saved up my money to buy my sweetheart some flowers
For Saturday's date and I restlessly counted the hours
Then today in the mail I received this short little note
And I broke down inside at the message that her mother wrote

Jimmy sent a letter to his bride back home
For three long years now he's been gone
He left her cryin' on her wedding day
And went to fight the battle of the Blue and Gray

And when I see the queen
I think of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Who is Queen of Heaven

In sunny days or stormy weather
She doesn't care
Cause right or wrong
The love we share
We share together

I must be going (don't go)
My heart is showing (don't go)
I better hurry awa-ay-ay-ay-ay
If I don't leave I'll be sorry

You smoke in bed
There's only one man you should marry
My advice to you would be
Is to pay attention to me

You passed me by one sunny day
Flashed those big brown eyes my way
And, ooh, I wanted you forever more

I took a walk with Mary Lou
We ran around to visit Sue
She had some boys I never knew

After many purple twilights
We will see a morning glow
And I will run to you
Bring the sun to you
If the Lord shall will it so

Your daddy says I'm a bad boy
And you've no future with me
So we can only get together
By meeting secretly

In the daytime
Mary Hill was a teaser

There's not a man today
Who could take me away


Fare thee well my own true love
Fare thee well my dear
For the ship is a waiting and the wind blows high
And I am bound away to the sea

Nancy was charming and had poise and grace
I'll always remember my dear Nancy's face
And her warm embrace
