Hello and welcome to oldies lovers world-wide. 

In a departure from my usual practice, this months quiz is in
text format.

That fact alone (I think) raises the difficulty level.  There 
are also quite a few of the more obscure tunes included.  I
had considered a hybrid quiz consisting of both text and audio
formats, but I have come to realize that in the past I have 
underestimated the oldies "abilities" of this group.  
You folks are amazing.

None-the-less, I have constructed a certain topical theme to provide
some limited help.  The intent is to recognize a certain 
group of individuals, but there are peripheral topics included 
as well.  I think you will catch on pretty quickly.

Have fun, but stay safe everyone.

Days are fun, nights with you, yeah
Nothing's bad, sure to do
Laziness is an epidemic

Behind the shelter in the
Middle of the roundabout
A pretty nurse is selling
Poppies from a tray

I'm in great danger
Out here trying to drive
The way this Ford wiggles when
I'm approaching forty-five
I have to nurse it along
Like a little suffering pup
And cars whizzing by me

One for the lonely
That star will shine its light
Each time that someone sighs

But if you don't weigh
What I want, baby
Don't come around at all

It's in trouble
If he's still hungry
The whole country's doomed

If his sweet talk is thrilling
And you think you're willing
Oh, baby, you better stay home

You told me to leave you alone
My father said, come on home
My doctor said, take it easy
Oh, but your loving
Is much too strong

Well, it ain't the measles
And it ain't the flu
Just a little old virus
Tagged Y O U

There was a virus going round
Papa caught it and he died last spring
And now Mama doesn't seem
To wanna do much of anything

I don't need sunny skies
For things I have to do
Cause I stay home
The whole day long
And think of you

When you grow up
Why don't you be a doctor?
You don't wanna be a doctor?
You wanna be a disc jockey?

If you can mend broken bones and take out kidney stones
And do a little psychiatry
Then you ought to be able to put me on the table
And take good care of me

Don't call a doctor
A nurse is worse
Cause a pill won't heal my pain
When I'm feeling blue
You know what to do
To make me feel alright again

Oh nurse I'm gonna make a new resolution
I'm never never never gonna speed again
Put a gallon in me Alan

And in a little while
The girl had seen the doctor
And she came home with a smile

I was feelin' so bad
Asked the family doctor what I had,
I said, Doctor, Doctor, Mister M.D.
Can you tell me, what's ailing me?

Yeah, the doctor told me
Boy, you don't need no pills
Just a handful of nickels
The jukebox will cure your ills

Our camp nurse 
Is quite a swimmer
She says swimming 
Makes you slimmer

Unlock the operating room nurse
(But she can't find her keys)

Want some lovin', baby, that ain't all
I wanna kiss her but the gal's too tall
Young man rhythm got a hold of me too

She's my nurse, she's English
And wears tissue paper in her dress
And you can hear it

I was at home watching my TV 
When the noise of the phone rudely disturbed me 
I wasn't too sure at first, just what the doctor meant 
When he informed me that there had been an accident 

I punched my buddy
In the nose after lunch
Now I'm in trouble 'cause
The dean saw the punch

What do you get when you kiss a guy
You get enough germs to catch pneumonia


And I heard my baby groan
And I felt so broken-hearted
She used to be my very own
I tried so hard to keep from crying
My heart felt just like lead
She was all that I had to live for

You say you get your jolly goods
By trotting o'er the globe
Ridin' on a camel's back
In a crimson robe
Your birth reads like a novel
As for how you came to be
You say your mummy found you
In a laughing willow tree
