Simple lyrics expressing profound truths in One Hit Wonders


Pick up your feet
Gotta move to the trick of the beat
There is no elite
Just take your place in the driver’s seat

Driver’s Seat
Sniffin’ the Tears


Hit? Really?

She’s so fine, there’s no tellin’ where the money went

Simply Irresistible
Robert Palmer

Never gonna give you up,
Never gonna let you down…

you knew it was coming.

You knew this irritating nitpick was coming! He wasn’t a one-hit wonder.

My contribution:

“We don’t run around, crying and acting sad

“It’s no better to be safe than sorry.”

No, really, he did say that. We were probably drinking at the time.

We’re always happy,
life’s for living, yeah, that’s our philosophy.

Mungo Jerry In The Summertime

Closing time,
You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here…

“Money feeds my music machine.”
The Lemon Pipers

Life is a highway. I wanna ride it all night long.

What if God was one of us? Just a stranger on a bus, trying to make his way home? No-one to call him on the phone, except for the Pope maybe in Rome?

I’ll tell you of love,
more than ever it’s love,
No lack of faith undermines it.

“I’m too sexy for this song.”
