"Questions 67 And 68" as written by and Robert Lamm....
Can this feeling that we have together
Ooh, Suddenly exist between
Did this meeting of our minds together
Ooh, Happen just today, somewhere
I'd like to know,
Can you tell me please don't tell me
It really doesn't matter anyhow
It's just that the thought of us so happy
Appears in my mind, as a beautifully mysterious thing

Was your image in my mind so deeply
Was your image in my mind so deeply
Ooh, other places fade away
blocking memories of unhappy hours
Ooh, leavin' just a burnin' love
I'd like to know,
I'd like to know,
Can you tell me please don't tell me
It really doesn't matter anyhow
It's just that the thought of us so happy
Appears in my mind, as a beautifully mysterious thing
Yes it does now baby

Can this lovin' we have found within us
Ooh, Suddenly exist between
Did we somehow try to make it happen
Ooh, Was it just a natural thing
I'd like to know,
Can you tell me please don't tell me
It really doesn't matter anyhow
It's just that the thought of us so happy
Appears in my mind, as a beautifully mysterious thing
Yes it does now baby
Questions 67 and 68.

    General CommentThis is a good, quality song off of the first album, but I've always thought it lacks the pizazz that so many other Chicago songs have.

    General Commenti disagree, i think this song and dialouge (part I & III) are two of chicagos finest songs.

    Very underrated in my opinion

    General CommentI think this song is Chicago at their best.
    Any ideas on what "Questions 67 and 68" refers to? The meaning of that line has always stumped me.

    General CommentAccording to Robert Lamm, this was written about a girlfriend who asked a lot of questions about commitment in 1967 and 1968, hence the title.

    General CommentAs they said on their Carnegie Hall album, this was their first bust hit-bound single that never became a bust hit-bound single...Questions 67 and 68.

    I too have always thought that it was under appreciated.

    My OpinionThis song simply rocks and represents everything Chicago was all about before they sold out to MOR stations.

    General CommentThe title of the song refers to the last two questions, which reveal that this is just questions 67 and 68 in a long line of questions he's been asking himself in this relationship. It comes from Robert Lamm's wife asking a million questions about their relationship, and the idea is that the first time it hits you, love is rarely trumpets and angels, it's usually questions and uncertainty. A very under-rated song in my opinion.

    General CommentMy ex-boyfriend (we broke up in January) just sent me the lyrics to this song, do you think he misses me? He shredded my heart so with that said I am just trying to pick up the pieces of life.

    General CommentRight, but before it was a single, it was a song, and before it was a song it was a feeling. I have no question that it refers to the years 1967 and 1968, as others have stated. What remains mysterious to me is the dynamic that changed and the oblique references to mind-expansion from the past (1967) that turned into introspection and possibly paranoia or other psychopathic behavior in the presence (1968) and the "I've got to know, can you tell me please don't tell me" of what appears to be a state of mental collapse.
