Subject: Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz 316 (GOLQ316)


Welcome to GOLQ316. There are three mini-themes, but a few of the songs are
not connected to any of these. However, some songs are two-fers and fit two
of the mini-themes, while at least one song is a three-fer that fits all

A lovely girl with sunlight in her hair
And take the brightest stars up in the skies
And place them in her eyes for me

Do you know what it's like on the outside
Don't go talking too loud
You'll cause a landslide

You're like a dream
Not always what you seem
And though my heart may break when I awake

And then
He tied her up
And then
He threw her on the railroad track
And then
A train started coming
And then
And then

In a couple of years
They have built a home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones

She got the way to move me (alll-right)
She got the way to groove me

All these words of pain
I can't explain
Oh, all those tears I cry for you
Better luck the next time

I keep a-tellin' you
Right smack dab in the middle of town
I've found a paradise that's troubleproof

Each night I pray to heaven
Way up above
That you won't forget me
And give somebody else your

We're on a date, I take a ride, my baby's by my side
Top down, beach bound
Music on the radio that makes you want to go
Sky high, my guy

Young love is tender, gentle, and kind
And everywhere I go
There you will find

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart isn't filled with a gladness
Of love for one another

And one day it's gonna come for sure
The day that I've been livin' for
You wait and see
It's gonna be

And it looks like heartaches
And the winner loses all

Dim all the lights
Pour the wine
Start the music
Time to get ready for love

Well, I'm hers (I'm hers)
She's mine (She's mine)
I'm hers, she's mine
Wedding bells are gonna chime

Well I've been waitin' ever since eight
Guess my baby's got another date

This is the first time I have felt this way
Love is the grooviest thing up til now in the world

What makes me keep on
Puttin' up with this
What keeps me kneelin'
Underneath my master's kiss?

Wedlock is nigh my love
Her station's right my love
Life is secure

You've been around since
A new boy who found you
Took you uptown so far from me

You've been stood up
Tears fill your eyes oh-oh-woh-oh
You hurt inside
You want to die-ie-ie oh-woh

This is the room I sleep in
And walk in
And weep in
And hide in
That nobody sees

Now listen
If you see something you want and you know you can't afford it
But the very next thing you should do
Is to start saving for it

She-e my baby doll, my baby doll, my baby doll


You raise up your head
And you ask, "Is this where it is?"
And somebody points to you and says
"It's his"
And you say, "What's mine?"
And somebody else says, "Where what is?"

Mary, oh what a sweet girl
Lips like strawberry pie
Sandra, long hair and beat girl
Can't make up my mind
