Welcome to GOLQ291!  All 25 songs and the two tie breakers are linked
together with a relatively easily recognizable theme that should help
identify the many middle-of-the-chart songs and the few real "stumpers."

She's got eyes so bright
Sky blue
A voice so soft
Just like the morning dew

I am the egg man

Both their hearts are in tune with a love song
Every promise they make they mean
For true love is the treasure of treasures
When you're only seventeen

One, two, kiss-a-lirio
Kiss, two, we're delirio
And we soon may hear-io
Oh, promise me

Get away from my chick

We get along so well
I know just why I fell
She's thrillin', oh, chillin'
Yes, she's so divine

She's changed her rags to perfume
And she's got me all confused
Her picture's on the front page, y'all
She finally made the news

Now all you chicks agree
That this ain't the way it's supposed to be
Let me hear you, let me hear you say, "yeah, yeah"

The last time I saw her, man what a shape
Now she's got a shape like an egg

You know it's drivin' me mad
'Cause when I look in his eyes
I can see it, paradise
So I can't help it

She does all this and you wouldn't surmise
This chick needs no disguise
Here's a thing that would be the prize

She's a trip into space in a rocket for two
She's sequins and laces and bubble gum too
She's stolen the heart that I'm happy to lose

Who is the chick I would pick as the absolutely perfect miss for me to kiss
Who is the girl who can twirl me around her little finger when we kiss again

You're the spirit of Christmas
My star on the tree
You're the Easter Bunny
To Mommy and me

To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes

To look into her baby blue eyes
Right down to her dainty shoe size
I know when I see her
There's nothing left to say

Come on, woman
Gonna treat you right
Give you candy kisses
Every single night

Your lips are warm on Friday night
The next two days you hold me tight
But when it's done, you always run
And I'm alone

Presley records, hair spray and jelly beans

You know I used to sing
A tisket a tasket
A green and yellow basket

It wasn't on a Sunday
Monday and Tuesday went by

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Whip it on me now
Feels so good
Now that you're home

I remember Sunday morning
I would meet him at the park
We'd walk together hand in hand
'Til it was almost dark

An old man would be so grateful
You could just let him sit and talk
But a young man is somewhere busy
Doing the camel walk

Ought to see her with her hair hung down
Ain't no finer girl in town


He's got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There's an orchid for your mommy

I'll be all in clover and when they look you over
I'll be the proudest fellow
