Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 309 (GOLQ309)


Welcome to GOLQ309.  There is no theme, although some of the songs have
some things in common with others.

Regarding the tie-breakers--It turns out that at least one of the
tie-breakers has been recorded in the GOLQ era (or close to it) by other
artists in addition to the one I had in mind when I first selected the
song. Some of these artists may not fit alphabetically based on the artist
of the other tie-breaker. If you think you know both tie-breakers, but the
artist for one of them doesn't fit alphabetically, go ahead and submit it
anyway for at least partial credit.

Ooh-wah Ooh-wah
Come on, Kitty

Sunday after Mass
Picnic in the grass
Diggin' Mama Cass

They bought a souped-up jitney
Was a cherry red '53
And drove it down to Orleans to celebrate their anniversary
It was there where Pierre was wedded to the lovely mademoiselle

If you ever cut out
Then I'd be a stray cat
'Cause when I'm flying solo
Nowhere's where I'm at

Just like a ghost
You've been a-haunting my dreams
So I'll propose on Halloween

She got lovin' like quicksand
Only took one touch of her hand
Blow my mind and I'm in so deep
That I can't eat, you-all, and I can't sleep

They would like to thank you folks for kindly droppin' in
You're all invited back again to this locality
To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality

Didn't I treat you right now baby?
Didn't I?
Didn't I do the best I could now?
Didn't I?

Oh freedom (freedom) have some freedom (freedom) Oh-oh freedom ye-ah freedom
Right now freedom (freedom) oh-oh freedom (freedom) need me some freedom oh-oh freedom

A whipporwill awakens
And she tells the golden morn
That while the world was sleeping
Some new whipporwills were born

Old man trouble (old man trouble)
I don't mind him (I don't mind him)
You won't find him
'Round my door

I ain't got a mother
I ain't got a father
I ain't got a sister
Not even a brother
I'm a lonely frog

I know you were sent from heaven abo-ove
To fill my life with your
Wonderful lo-ove

Bill said to give it to Hank
'Cause Hank owns the bank
And he can make it grow
Now ain't those amazin' folks
That Bill is lucky to know

Sebastian and Zal formed the Spoonful

When the people see him dancin'
They begin to see
Lum-dee lum-dee li-i
To see this cat

Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Now I stand at my window
Wring my hands and moan
All I know that the one I love is gone

Tell me a story about how you adore me
Live in the shadow, see through the shadow
Live through the shadow, tear at the shadow
Hate in the shadow, and love in your shadowy life

One fine day I'll find a way
To move from this old shack
I'll hold my head up like a king
And I never never will look back

On your mark you'd better start
I'd sooner trust a hungry lion
Than a gal with a cheatin' heart

I own the tailor's face and hands
I am the tailor's face and hands

You keep sayin' you've got somethin' for me
Somethin' you call love but confess
You been a-messin' where you shouldn't a-been a-messin'
And now someone else is gettin' all your best

I said look at the people
Find a place in line
Doin' the barracuda, the jerk, and the twine
Kick off your shoes baby and get in the groove
'Cause when you hear the music your feet has got to move

But there were friends galore (how-dee-doo how-dee-doo)
And there was beer to pour (chug-a-lug chug-a-lug)
And moonlight on the shore (and the moon shines above)


We are so in love
But he loves you too
How can I tell my best friend
That I'm in love with you

If sweet talkin' you would make it come true
Then I'd give you the world right now on a silver platter
But what would it matter
So smile for a while and let's be jolly
