It’s time for the 16th installment of my Favorite. Song. Lyrics. EVER.
See all installments in this series.
As always, enjoy!
- “So baby straighten up, come on and fly right / It’s no catastrophe, yeah” – Baby, Baby Don’t Cry by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. (Video and lyrics.) [NOTE: I couldn’t find a video of Smokey & the gang performing this. If you Google it , you’ll find a video of what is actually The Four Tops performing something, but it’s NOT Baby Baby Don’t Cry.)
- “Well you’re windy and wild / You got the blues / I’m your shoes and your stockings” – Bang a Gong (or is it Get It On?)by T-Rex. (Video and lyrics.) [Note: According to Wikipedia: “In the United States, the song was re-titled ‘Bang a Gong (Get It On)’ to avoid confusion with a song of the same name by the group Chase.”
- “There’ll be good times again for me and you
But we just can’t stay together, don’t you feel it too
Still I’m glad for what we had, and how I once loved you” – It’s Too Late” by Carole King. (Video and lyrics.)
- “T’was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair.” – Ramble On by Led Zeppelin. (Video and lyrics.)
