The more I read the papers, the less I comprehend the world and all its capers, and how it all will end.
Seems that I read or somebody said: out of sight is out of mind. Maybe that's so, but I tried to go and leave you behind, what did I find?
I never feel a thing is real, when I'm away from you, Out of your embrace, the world's a temporary parking place...
Romance is a game for fools, I used to say. A game I though I'd never play...
Is there anyone around who cannot see it's the well-known run around you're giving me...
Merry month of May, sunny skies of blue, clouds have rolled away and the sun peeps thru'...

After watching her appeal from every angle, There's a big romantic deal I've got to wangle. For I've fallen for a certain lovely lass...
I've wined and dined on Mulligan stew and never wished for turkey, And I've hitched and hiked and grifted too...
Darling, there's the tree you run to when it starts to rain. See the way it's filled with bloom and isn't there a garland all around that window pane?
Oh! will you never let me be? Oh! will you never set me free? The ties that bound us, are still around us, there's no escape that I can see.
Maybe I'm old fashioned, feeling like I do. Maybe I am living in the past, but when I meet the right one I know that I'll be true. My first love will be my last.

More Info:
  • Sure they may have lasted the test of time, but many singers have skipped to the refrain leaving the opening lines of these songs forgotten. Until now, if you can name them of course.
