In the ballroom of romance, there's a rock band playing
People swaying to the beat, swaying in the heat
In the corner over there by the door is a local Casanova
Yelling for another double scotch, "hey, steady on the rocks!"
And when the girl walked in, a complete unknown
There was mass confusion, this beauty was alone
And then the room began to shimmer
Every heart was beating fast
Every man who had to win her
Was moving fast, they said

I'm ready, I'm ready for romance
I'm ready for romance is here at last

In the ballroom of romance, there's a young man waiting
Standing looking over at the scene, it could be you or me
Every eye in the room was watching as she walked over to him
Whispered "do you want to come with me, I'm heading for the beach"
In her BMW 635, going smooth at ninety, feeling good to be alive
And then the moon began to shimmer
Hey the sea was roaring in
Just one kiss and then his heart
Began to sing, he said

I'm ready, I'm ready for romance
I'm ready for romance is here at last

Hey the moon began to shimmer
And the sea was roaring in
The last thing I remember
Was her kiss, I said

I'm ready, I'm ready for romance
I'm ready, I'm ready for romance
I said I'm ready, I'm ready for romance
I'm ready for romance is here at last!

In the ballroom of romance
In the ballroom of romance
In the ballroom of romance
In the ballroom of romance
I'm ready!

Life goes on, same old song
Life goes on, and love grows strong

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

@[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."
