Welcome to GOLQ290.  There is a theme in this quiz that connects the

More than anything I need your love
Them troubles are easy to rise above

She said that living with me was bringing her down, yeah
She would never be free when I was around

Those happy hours
That we once knew
Though long ago
They still make me blue

You say that you love me (say you love me)
All of the time (all of the time)
You say that you need me (say you need me)
You'll always be mine (always be mine)

I'll hold your hand
I'll kiss you too
Well the feature's over
But we're not through

I see earthquakes and lightning
I see bad times today
Don't go round tonight
Well it's bound to take your life

There was Lollipop with Peggy Sue
Good Golly Miss Molly was even there too

I've been misunderstood for all of my life
But what they're saying girl just cuts like a knife
The boy's no good

You can dance (you can dance)
Go and carry on (you can dance)
Till the night is gone (you can dance)
And it's time to go (you can dance)
(You can dance)

You are here
And so am I
Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view

Baby baby sweet baby
There's something that I just got to say
Baby baby sweet baby
You left me hurtin' in a real cold way

After a while, crocodile

Calling out to everyone across the nation (nation nation nation)
Said the world today is in a desperate situation (desperate situation)
Stealing, burning, fighting, killing
Nothing but corruption
It looks like mankind is on the eve of destruction

He smiled at me and gee the music started playing
"Here comes the bride" when he walked through the door

All night long weeping like a willow
Tossing and turning on my tear-stained pillow
Guess I'm gonna drown in my own tears

She doesn't want me
Though I'll never never never never
Let her go

Made a lot of stops all over the world
And in every port
I own the heart of at least one lovely girl

As we were dancing closely
All of a sudden I lost control
As I held her charms
And I caressed her, kissed her
Told her I'd die before I would let her out of my arms

It was a kiss
Ooh what a kiss
It was it really was such a kiss
Oh how she could kiss
Oh what a kiss

I'm not afraid of what they'll do to me
I'm just afraid they'll hurt my baby
We don't care if we run forever
Just as long as we're together

Every day is an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines
And each town looks the same to me
The movies and the factories

Baby baby baby don't leave me
Ooh please don't leave me
All by myself

I want I want a lot a lot of huggin'
Oh babe I want I want a lot a lot of kissin'
So baby please proceed to give the love I need

Please don't ask me where I've been
I've been alone through thick and thin
On the outside looking in

I love you girl, I love you so
Can't you see it, don't you know
I can't stand your alibis, your telling lies
They drive me wild


Miniature golf and Hondas in the hills
(Miniature golf and Hondas in the hills)
When we rode that horse we got some thrills
Every now and then we hear our song
(Every now and then we hear our song)

Well, I try to tell you I'm cookin' inside
When we're cheek-to-cheek
Temperature's low but my fever is high
I can't speak
I'm too weak
