Here we go 'round again
Singing a song about Molly Dee
Far away, I know not where
She's the girl who waits for me

I got a gal in Tennessee
Sweetest little gal that you ever did see
Works all day in a cotton mill
She makes her gin in a bathtub still

Well here we go 'round again
Singing a song about Molly Dee
Far away, I know not where
She's the girl who waits for me

My true love's in Memphis town
Pretty little thing names Sally Brown
Travels around on a riverboat
Shares her room with a Billy goat

Here we go 'round again
Singing a song about Molly Dee
Far away, I know not where
She's the girl who waits for me

Spending my money, gonna drink it away
I'll start saving on another day
Wasting my time in the silver dollar
Pinch them girls just to hear them holler

Here we go 'round again
Singing a song about Molly Dee
Far away, I know not where
She's the girl who waits for me

Here we go 'round again
Singing a song about Molly Dee
Far away, I know not where
She's the girl who waits for me

She's the girl who waits for me
She's the girl who waits for me

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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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/

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
