If life is a rock and the radio rolls me...

Why should I turn it up louder?

Just because the DJ told me?

Yes. and for the love of Bee Bee Bumble and the Stingers.

You should turn it up louder, but NOT because your DJ told you. You should turn it up louder, because at the end of your RAaaa-aaaain-bow lies a golden oldie.

Then the questions become, does the golden oldie lie there at a Garden Party?
Was everybody there?
Did Yoko bring her walrus?


According to

“CBS and Warner Brothers, RCA and all the others”

  • Reunion, 1974

we’re old :smiley:

Very, witch .

I can’t remember my new phone number, but I can recall all the lyrics to that particular piece of dreck.

Chick-a-boom, chick-a-boom,
Don’ja just love it…

Billy, don’t be a hero
Don’t be a fool with your life…


Like a picture she was laying there
moonlight dancing on her hair
she got up and took me by the hand
shes gonna love me in my chevy van
and thats all right with me :smiley:

Ok. If we’ve degenerated into Bad Lyrics, stand back. Unca Fenris is gonna stink up the thread:

  1. “Rice is Nice” by the Lemon Pipers:

I want to find somebody to care
I want to catch some rice in my hair
I need love and I want you I do
I want to spend my life lovin’ you

Rice is nice
That’s what they say
Rice is nice
Throw some my way

  1. “Jean” by Rod McKeuen

Jean, Jean
Roses are red
All the leaves have gone green
And run, if you will
To the top of the hill
Open your heart, Bonnie Jean

I just scared myself by doing both of those from memory.


You scared me too fenris :smiley:

Daddy was a cop
on the east side of chicago
back in the bad ol’ days
back in the USA…

In the heat of a summer niiiiiiight…
C’mon! Ya know ya know every word!!


You moan divinely :smiley:

“It’s a strange, stange world we live in master Jack;
You taught me all I know, and I’ll never look back.
You’re a very strange man, and I thank you master Jack”

“Which way you goin’, Billy,
Or need I ask?
You don’t want me Billy,
You’re free at last!”
You are my all babe,
My heart and my soul, babe
I’d have nothing to show babe,
If you should go away!"

“Who care what things we choose,
Little to win, but nothing to lose.”

'This is the last song
I’ll ever sing for you.
It’s the last time that I’ll tell you just much I really care…"

“It never rains in California…”

take that!

This thread makes me feel terribly, terribly young.

Sorry, I have no lyrics to add. :frowning:

yeah, like NO bad lyrics have EVER assailed your pristine ears… Classic denial! :smiley:

Go and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won’t be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day
On the bloody morning after
One tin soldier rides away

Out of the pool- OUT! you just can’t leave a thread like this lying around here for anyone to open. Someone’s gonna get hurt, and I’m not gonna be responsible!!!


[humming] bill-y don’t be a hmm-hmm don’t hmm-hmm-hmm with your hmm— [/humming] Damn you all!! A pox on you, especially, Dr. Rieux!!

[sings]Butterfly, my butterfly
though I know
you must be free
Don’t flutter by
Stay a little while with me[/sings]

Suzanne takes you down,
To her place near the river,
You can hear the boats go by,
You can spend the night beside her…

Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed…
