Oh What A Lonely Boy

Another great 70’s song that I had forgotten all about!

Enjoy!!

He was born on a summer day, 1951
And with the slap of a hand
He had landed as an only son
His mother and father said “what a lovely boy”
We’ll teach him what we learned
Ah yes, just what we learned
We’ll dress him up warmly and
We’ll send him to school
It’ll teach him how to fight
To be nobody’s fool

Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy

In the summer of ’53 his mother
Brought him a sister
But she told him “we must attend to her needs”
“She’s so much younger than you”
Well, he ran down the hall and he cried
Oh, how could his parents have lied
When they said he was an only son
He thought he was the only one

Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy

[Instrumental Interlude]

Goodbye Mama
Goodbye to you
Goodbye Papa
I’m pushin’ on through

He left home on a winter day, 1969
And he hoped to find all the love
He had lost in that earlier time
Well, his sister grew up
And she married a man
He gave her a son
Ah yes, a lovely son
They dressed him up warmly
They sent him to school
It taught him how to fight
To be nobody’s fool

Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy

I’ve Been Searching So Long

If you lived as a child or teenager in the 70’s you will remember the group “Chicago” and in particular this great song.

Enjoy!

As my life goes on I believe
Somehow something’s changed
Something deep inside
Ooh a part of me

There’s a strange new light in my eyes
Things I’ve never known
Changin’ my life
Changin’ me

I’ve been searching
So long
To find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Ow oh

Now I see myself as I am
Feeling very free
Life is everything
Ooh it’s meant to be
When my tears have come to an end
I will understand
What I left behind
Part of me

I’ve been searching
So long
To find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Woah woah

Searching
For an answer
To the question
Oh yeah
Who am I?
Baby
Baby it’s true
It’s only natural
It’s only natural baby, yeah
Good things
In life
Take a long time
yeah yeah

I Can’t Get It Out Of My Head

My very favorite E.L.O. song - Enjoy!


Midnight on the water.
I saw the ocean's daughter.
Walking on a wave she came,
staring as she called my name.
      And I can't get it out of my head,
      no, I can't get it out of my head.
      Now my old world is gone for dead
      'cuz I can't get it out of my head.
Breakdown on the shoreline,
can't move, it's an ebbtide.
Morning don't get here till night,
searching for her silver light.
      And i can't get it out of my head,
      no, I can't get it out of my head.
      Now my old world is gone for dead
      'cuz I can't get it out of my head, no no.
Bank job in the city.
Robin Hood and William Tell and Ivanhoe and Lancelot, they don't envy me, yeh.
Sitting till the sun goes down,
in dreams the world keep going  round and  round.
      And I can't get it out of my head,
      no, I can't get it out of my head.
      Now my old world is gone for dead
      'cuz I can't get it out of my head, no no.
      No, I can't get it out of my head,
      no, I can't get it out of my head.
      Now my old world is gone for dead
      'cuz I can't get it out of my head, no no no no.

Feels Like The First Time

My favorite Foreigner song of ALL TIME!  Unbelievable vocals!  Enjoy!

I would climb any mountain
Sail across a stormy sea
If that’s what it takes me baby
To show you how much you mean to me
And I guess it’s just the woman in you
That brings out the man in me
I know I can’t help myself
You’re all in the world to me

It feels like the first time
Feels like the very first time
It feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time

I have waited a lifetime
Spent my time so foolishly
But now that I’ve found you
Together we’ll make history

And I know that it must be the woman in you
That brings out the man in me
I know I can’t help myself
You’re all that my eyes can see

And it feels like the first time
Like it never did before
Feels like the first time
Like we’ve opened up the door
Feels like the first time
Like it never will again, never again

Feels like the first time, it feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time, very, very, it feels
It feels like the first time, oh it feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time

Open up the door, won’t you open up the door? yeah

Feels like the first time
And it feels like the very first time
And it feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time

And it feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time
Oh it feels, it feels like the first time
Yeah it feels like the first time

Dreamboat Annie

One of my favorite “Heart” songs – the guitar that Nancy plays is amazing!!  Enjoy!

Heading out this morning into the sun
Riding on the diamond waves, little darlin’ one

Warm wind caress her
Her lover it seems
Oh, Annie
Dreamboat Annie my little ship of dreams

Going down the city sidewalk alone in the crowd
No one knows the lonely one whose head’s in the clouds

Sad faces painted over with those magazine smiles
Heading out to somewhere won’t be back for a while

Landslide

Another timeless Fleetwood Mac song – that really takes me back.  Originally written by Stevie Nicks about her life and decisions about love when she was young – but then her father always thought the song was about him – so she later dedicated it to him ♥  He passed away in 2006.

I took my love, I took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
til the landslide brought it down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing cause I’ve
Built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older, too

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing cause I’ve
Built my life around you
Time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older, too
I get older, too

I took my love and took it down
I climbed a mountain, I turned around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
The landslide brought it down
The landslide brought it down

Never Going Back Again

This Fleetwood Mac song never gets old to me!  Lindsey Buckingham is an AWESOME guitarist – in any decade.  Just amazing.

Written by Lindsey Buckingham.

She broke down and let me in
Made me see where I’ve been

Been down one time
Been down two times
I’m never going back again

You don’t know what it means to win
Come down and see me again

Been down one time
Been down two times
I’m never going back again
