ONE MAN CAN MAKE A LOT OF WAVES
ANOTHER MAN WILL GET A LOT OF SURF
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PLANET
A LITTLE BOY WITH EARPHONES ON
AND A BIG SMILE ON HIS FACE
ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE PLANET
STARTS SHAKING WITH THE MUSIC
BUT CAN HE REALLY DIG IT
WILL LITTLE STOMPIN' FEET EVER REGRET IT
I DON'T KNOW
SOMETIMES YOU WIN
SOMETIMES YOU LOSE
AND IF YOU PICK WHAT OTHERS CHOOSE
YOU'RE GONNA SING THE BLUES

BUT YOU'RE GONNA FIND
A BETTER PLACE AND A MEANING
SOME OTHER TIME
I'M SURE YOU'LL FIND THE FEELING
LET GO OF YOUR MIND
SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO LOSE CONTROL
YOU GOTTA GO DOWN AND
TAKE A FALL

NOW THERE'S A MAN WHO'S BLIND AS A BAT
HE DOESN'T CARE, HE KNOWS WHERE IT'S AT
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PLANET
HE'S SINGING WITH SUNGLASSES ON
AND A BIG SMILE ON HIS FACE
NOT ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE PLANET

HE STARTS SHAKING WITH THE MUSIC
AND YOU CAN REALLY DIG IT
NOBODY'S GOING TO REGRET IT
OH I KNOW
SOMETIMES YOU WIN
SOMTIMES YOU LOSE
AND IF YOU PICK WHAT
OTHERS CHOOSE
YOU'LL SING THE BLUES

BUT YOU'RE GONNA FIND
A BETTER PLACE AND A MEANING
SOME OTHER TIME
I'M SURE YOU'LL FIND THE FEELING
LET GO OF YOUR MIND
SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO LOSE CONTROL
YOU GOTTA GO DOWN
AND TAKE A FALL

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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.
