Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 307 (GOLQ307)


Welcome to GOLQ307! This quiz has no specific theme, but does have a
characteristic that, once discovered, should assist in helping with the one
or two stumpers. And here's another clue for you all (not, "The Walrus was
Paul"): One song title is appropriate for inclusion during this month of
the Olympics.

Choose a date who would make a good mate

She makes me come alive
And makes me wanna drive

Don't forget me never
Listen to my plea
Please don't stop loving me

I've been all over this country
I've been half way 'round the world
I've been traveling so doggone much
That I haven't got a steady girl

They said our love wasn't real
That it would soon be over
That's not the way that I feel
But I don't worry, honey
Let them say what they may

Don't she know he's on a stage
It's not real, it's just a play
And he's playing the part
That is soon to break her heart

We've had bad times through the years
And though I made you cry
Think of me through tender tears
And try to close your eyes
And try to close your eyes

When I was a little bitty baby
My mama would rock me in the cradle

All you need is faith
To hear the diesel's hummin'
Don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord

And when I told her
Another girl had caught my eye

His dreams have turned to dust
His dreams have turned to dust

No other voice can say the words
My heart must hear to ever sing again
The words you used to whisper low
No other other love can ever bring again

Wake up in the morning with the sunshine in your eye
And the smell of flowers blooming fills the air


Gravestones cheer the living, dear
They're no use to the dead
(No use to the dead)

Well I met a pretty girl, she walkin' down the street
The kind of girlie that I'd like to meet
She had blonde hair and she sure looked fine
Tell me, darlin', will you be mine

And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale

What to say
When he looks at me that way
Should I let him hold my hand
Tell him that I think he's grand

Said that over here I wasn't in
Down in Hollywood I couldn't find a friend
Who would help me get in
Or listen to me

You're still my angel from above
Guess you'll always be my one and only
Only real love

Well it started out way down south
Took a left turn and headed on out
It was movin' 'long very slow, now
'Cause it was travelin' by word of mouth

Take a cha-cha-cha-chance

She had my nose open, that's no lie
Table's turned and now it's her turn to cry

How you think I felt when you
You left me then you never said a word except that we're through
And you didn't fight it all the way
I don't care you just don't mean that much to me this way, yeah

I'll bet you dread to spend another lonely night with me

I made Tommy eat a bug
Broke my grandpa's shaving mug


I woke up this morning,
I didn't feel so good
Then my baby told me,
I'll make you feel like you should

Frosted lips and eye and hair
Chocolate chips and everywhere she goes
She takes her shadow and a warm hello
