Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 294 (GOLQ294)


Welcome to GOLQ294.  There is no major theme, but there is a mini-theme
that connects 6 of the 27 songs.  Plus, some songs have things in common
with others, some of which are coincidences that I discovered only after I
finished putting everything together.

Our town was peaceful and quiet
Before she came on the scene
The lady has started a riot
Disturbing a suburban routine

My heart is down
My head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Waiting round the bend
My huckleberry friend

Or you can kiss me on a Wednesday,
A Thursday, a Friday,
And Saturday is best

Don't have to tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
Or some romantic movie scene
Why, from the moment that those lovers start arrivin'
You'll see more kissin' in the cars than on the screen

'Cause Thursday is a hard-workin' day
And Friday I get my pay

Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me
Come in Tuesday I feel better
Even my old man looks good

Now I love you
You know it too
Baby don't change your ways

I told myself it's best that I forget you
Though I'm a fool at least I know the score
Yet darling I'd be twice as blue without you
It hurts but I'd come running back for more

I don't want her
She didn't love me anyway
She only wanted someone to play with
But all I wanted was a love to stay

If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
All over this land

The eastern world, it is explodin'
Violence flarin', bullets loadin'
You're old enough to kill but not for votin'
You don't believe in war but what's that gun you're totin'
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'

I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

I love you and I'm dreamin' of you
But that won't do

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I have you near me

They said some day you'll find
All who love are blind
Ohhhh ohhhh
When your heart's on fire
You must realize

Got a rovin' eye
And that is why she satisfies my soul
Got the only walkin' talkin'

They've given you a number
And taken away your name

Please don't try to bother me
I'm in another world, you see
I'm trying to erase her from my mind

But neither one will ever give in
So they gazed at an eight-by-ten
Thinkin' 'bout the things that might have been
And it's a dirty rotten shame

[voice 1]
My friends think I'm an awful bore
Ever since I fell in love with you
[voice 2]
I'm not well-rounded any more
There's just one thing I like to do

You made my life so rich
You know you could have been some money
And baby you're so sweet
You know you could have been some honey

East side cafes
West side plays
Uptown, downtown
I'll be there

You say you're lookin' for someone
Who'll promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes to you
Someone to close his heart

A place where there's this loneliness
Where dim lights bring forgetfulness
Where broken dreams and memories meet


I'm goin' to Alabama
Back from Texarkana
Goin' all around the world
My father don't like it
My brother don't like it
My sister don't like it
My mother don't like it

But if you love a Wednesday
You'll live your life apart now
And if you love a Thursday
She's gonna break your heart
