Nickelback's song "Someday" also includes the lyric "just like a paperback novel", and I'm sure it's a nod to Canada's finest songwriter. (And, yes, I'm including Leonard Cohen.)

Feelin's(??) Great pick for a lyrics quiz nonetheless!

I agree that word seems very out of place, but both lyrics sites I checked use it and it actually does seem to match what Lightfoot is singing. I do have "feeling's" set as an alternate for those who like to type proper English. If anybody has a lyric sheet from one of his albums or something a little more official and wants to check that one I can switch it.

Seeing you mentioned PROPER English, whether it's "feelin's" or "feeling's", the middle of the three "feelin's" should be WITHOUT apostrophe, as it is NOT a contraction nor a possessive, but rather simply a plural noun: "the feelins that you lack." The contractive form would mean "the feelin IS that you lack", which makes no grammatical sense, and as "that you lack" is not an object which something can possess, but rather a qualifier, the possessive case cannot apply. Nitpicky, eh? GREAT QUIZ--thanks for making it!

You're absolutely right. I've removed the apostrophe from that one and switched the displayed version to include the 'g' as it was looking even stupider once the apostrophe was removed :)

It is correct to use an apostrophe to indicate a missing letter, though. No hard feelin's. :) But I agree that it should appear as "feelings". I don't see the point of attempting slavishly to transcribe every mispronunciation or nuance of speech. Fabulous song,thanks for putting it up here.
