Welcome to GOLQ398!  There is no major theme, but there are multiple minor
themes.  Some of the songs are not part of any of the themes.  Also, some of
the songs may be stumpers, but the theme should help to identify them if they
are part of any of the minor themes.

I went down to 42nd Street
Thought I'd get a bite to eat
I saw a girl that I'd like to meet
You know she sure looked good

Well c'mon pretty baby won't you walk with me
C'mon pretty baby won't you talk with me
C'mon pretty baby give me one more chance
Try to save our romance

It's a necessary function
Meant for those without compunction
Who get tired of vanilla every day

Like one of those bunnies out of the Playboy Club
But she got something much greater than gold
Crazy 'bout that girl 'cause she got so much soul

I've cried and cried for you
And no matter what you do
Yes I've cried and cried in vain
I want my baby back again

Oh when the sun refuse to shine
Oh when the sun refuse to shine
I still wants to be in that number

Keep a-wearin' your bracelets
And your new rah-rah
Across your heart, yeah
With your living bra

Hey now
Doesn't matter what they say now
Gonna love you any way now
If you and I will try together
I know we'll find love

That yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin

Now you have gotta pay
You've gotta pay

Where it may rain or storm
Yet I'm safe and warm
In your arms

But when I found your goodbye note
When I read the things you wrote
When I knew that you had gone from me

There they go
In their happiness
Here I go
In my loneliness

Find yourself another toy
'Cause this is one heart you won't destroy
('Cause I can't stand for what you're puttin' down)
Oh yeah
(You hang around with every girl in town)
Oh yeah

He doesn't want me
But I'll never, never, never, never
Let him go

While you'd be so wrong
If you said "So long"
Without an investigation
I know that you care
And you'll judge me fair
And give my love its due consideration

Hey buddy
How can I get this car
Out of second gear?

Put a chain around my neck
And lead me anywhere

Down came the stockman riding on his thoroughbred
Down came the troopers (one, two, three)
Now where's the jolly jumbuck that you've got in your tuckerbag

I'm gonna march you down the aisle

She take all me money
And she flew to Las Vegas

(Think it o-over)
Haven't I been good to you?
(Think it o-over)
Haven't I been sweet to you?

Someday you'll come runnin' back to me
(Someday you'll come runnin' back to me)
When you find how lonely it can be

They say that you're a runaround lover
Though you say it isn't so
But if you put me down for another
I'll know, believe me, I'll know

If you're gonna start out
A-huggin' me tight
Don't mess around
Just a-hug me right


It's always the old to lead us to the war
Always the young to fall
Now look at all we've won with the saber and the gun
Tell me is it worth it all

I really love you
And I want you to know
I'm thinkin' of you girl
Everywhere I go
