The second one has been deleted.



Welcome to GOLQ 394!  There are no intentional themes, but here's a clue:  two
of the songs have something blatantly in common.  Enjoy!

I got up this mornin' turned on my radio
I was checking out the surfin' scene to see if I would go

Tuned to a natural E
Happy to be that way
Now that you've found another key
What are you going to play?

I reached out my arms and I touched you
With soft words I whispered your name

And if I knew that I had caused you pain
My tears would fall like the rain

Like a ten cent soda doesn't cost a dime
I don't want you near me, only all the time

You're gone from me
But in my memory
We always will be

I miss you, oh, can't you see
You're the only girl for me
Since you've gone, I'm all alone
Come on, baby, come back home

Many things I've turned your way
I've taught you all the things to say
But now, now, you say we are through

Well, people look at me and say
Oh, Roy, oh Roy, is you the law?

I'm just a no one
With nothing to give you, but, oh
I love you

It will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love

When I said, "Joe sent me"
Someone laughed out loud

We've lost most all of our happy people
And I'm wondering why

Fate seemed to pull the strings
I turned and you were gone
While from the darkened wings
The music box played on

If you don't know the thrill
That makes my heart stand still
If you don't feel
The same appeal
Then I know one who will

I used to play around with hearts
That hastened at my call

Well, every night you drag me
Where the bright lights are found
There ain't no way to slow you down

Kissing you (kissing you)
That's all I want to do
It never seems just right
Now that we are apart

And you know the way she touches your cheek
Well, I taught her how

My little chick is my heart's desire
Well, the way we kiss it puts the school on fire

Hello darkness, my old friend

Takin' my friends out for a mighty good time
Buyin' bootleg liquor, Champagne and wine

Taller than the tallest tree is
That's how it's got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue sea is
That's how deep it goes, if it's real

So in love, sad as could be
'Cause a pretty face got the best of me
Suddenly you came into my life
And gave it meaning and pure delight

Is your lovelight shining bright
Will you love me or leave me tonight


I love you with all my heart
Adore you and all your charms
I want you to do your part
Come here to my open arms

Good mornin' baby, how you do this mornin'?
Well, please, ma'am, just a lovin' spoon, just a lovin' spoonful
