Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 299 (GOLQ299)


Welcome to GOLQ299! All songs are linked together with a purely subjective
theme that can best be described by the title of a Jim Carrey movie from a
few years back. The theme is a variation of one that has been used several
times in the past.

I'm writing you this letter
To me you are the most
I'm really not very good at expressing myself
And I don't know how to say it

You're kinda naughty
But you're naughty and nice

Anyone can play
From three to a hundred and ten

You're hip
Now put on your face
And let's join the race

We don't love anyone
As much as you
Your singing makes us say
To you

We're on our way with a great big sleigh
Full of toys
Choo choo trains and candy canes
For all you girls and boys

Ran into the street
Directly into the path
Of a runaway garbage truck

Can you catch it on your tonsils
Can you heave it left and right

The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew lovely meatballs and tomato sauce

The Green Beret has fallen through that trap door
Into his own alligator pit
He's a real nowhere man

We don't smoke and we don't chew
And we don't go with the girls that do

I saw a kook who was standing on his head
He flipped his lid like he should have been in bed

I never saw her, never ever saw her
My baby

He looked at her, thought, "What a dilly"
He touched her once, she slapped him silly

Hey boy take off that hat
Where do you think you're at
I know where you gon' be
If you don't heed my plea

Watch what happens
When I walk up to somebody

He slid into town one rainy night
Runnin' like a dog away from a fight
He had a pretty big mouth for a guy his size
And everything he said was a pack of lies

Love, you're such a sweet thing
Good enough to eat thing
And that's just what I'm gonna do

They were making a list and checking it twice
Frankenstein wanted a shiny new trike

The words you sing I can't figure out
But you've got a sound, make me stomp and shout

You gotta twist way up
You gotta twist way down
You gotta jump, turn
And twist around

And their voices unite
In the pale moonlight
And it sounds alright
Yeah, it's dynamite
It's out of sight

From the garden
By the garden
Of a willow tree

A-well-a everybody's heard

Pigeon-toed, undergrowed


No one will be watching us

Well, I set my monkey on the log
And ordered him to do The Dog
He wagged his tail and shook his head
And he went and did The Cat instead
He's a weird monkey, very funky
