Ahh, here she comes, just a-walk-- just, just a-walkin' down the street
Singin' down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop, hey!
I took a walk 'round the market downtown

Takin' it easy just to see what I could found
I found the girls there, long legs and blond hair
All gettin' set to make a mess out of my mind
Hey!

Eyes left
I got my heart burnt, you know why I hurt
They say the miniskirt is coming back in style
I say it's not fair, but what do they care

When you've got power then you use it for a while
Hey!
Eyes right
See the pretty, pretty, pretty girls in the street

Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See them walkin' with their pretty shoes on their feet
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
Down do be do do wop, wop

God, if you're up there, listen to my prayer
In future man should have a different design
Give him a switch so he can turn off his libido now
Give him a tranquilizer built into his mind

See the pretty, pretty, pretty girls in the street
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See them walkin' with their pretty shoes on their feet
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop

On their feet
Down do be do do wop, wop
Don't talk to me about women's liberation
They already got me right just where it hurts

Now here she see-- comes, just a-walk-- just a-walkin' down the ssss-streets
Singin' down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See the pretty, pretty, pretty girls in the street

Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See them walkin' with their pretty shoes on their feet
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See the pretty, pretty, pretty girls in my street

Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See them walkin' with their pretty shoes on their feet
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
On their feet

Down do be do do wop, wop

    As Marillion puts it, "Pain and Heaven." What a vile poison, testosterone.

    Give him a switch so he can turn off his libido now

    This is so on the mark. What a nuisance it can be.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
