    "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" by The Platters

    Post  Admin on July 31st 2012, 2:34 am

    "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes"

    by The Platters
    songwriters: Otto Harbach/Jerome Kern
    Jan. 19th, 1959 - (#1 - 3 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    They asked me how I knew
    My true love was true
    Oh, I of course replied
    Something here inside cannot be denied

    They said someday you'll find
    All who love are blind
    Oh, when your heart's on fire
    You must realize
    Smoke gets in your eyes

    So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
    To think they could doubt my love
    Yet today my love has flown away
    I am without my love
    (without my love)

    Now laughing friends deride
    Tears I can not hide
    Oh, so I smile and say
    When a lovely flame dies
    Smoke gets in your eyes
    (smoke gets in your eyes, smoke gets in your eyes)
    Smoke gets in your eyes...

    "Stagger Lee" by lloyd Price

    "Stagger Lee"

    by Lloyd Price
    songwriters: Harold Logan/Lloyd Price
    Feb. 9th, 1959 - (#1 - 4 weeks)

    (Lloyd Price's #1 version received a lot of complaints because of the
    violent nature of the lyrics so he recorded a second 'tamer' version
    that did not sell as well as his first)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    The night was clear and the moon was yellow
    And the leaves came tumbling down

    I was standing on the corner
    When I heard my bulldog bark
    He was barkin' at the two men
    Who were gamblin' in the dark
    It was Stagger Lee and Billy
    Two men who gambled late
    Stagger Lee threw seven
    Billy swore that he threw eight

    Stagger Lee told Billy
    I can't let you go with that
    You have won all my money
    And my brand new stetson hat

    Stagger Lee went home
    And he got his forty-four
    Said, I'm goin' to the barroom
    Just to pay that debt I owe
    Go Stagger Lee

    Stagger Lee went to the barroom
    And he stood across the barroom door
    He said, nobody move
    And he pulled his forty-four

    Stagger Lee, cried Billy
    Oh, please don't take my life
    I've got three little children
    And a very sickly wife

    Stagger Lee shot Billy
    Oh, he shot that poor boy so bad
    Till the bullet came through Billy
    And it broke the bartender's glass

    (Go Stagger Lee)
    (Go Stagger Lee)
    (Go Stagger Lee) (fades out)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Hey, Venus! Oh, Venus!

    Venus if you will
    Please send a little girl for me to thrill.
    A girl who wants my kisses and my arms
    A girl with all the charms of you.

    Venus, make her fair
    A lovely girl with sunlight in her hair.
    And take the brightest stars up in the skies
    And place them in her eyes for me.

    Venus, goddess of love that you are,
    Surely the things I ask
    Can't be too great a task.

    Venus, if you do
    I promise that I always will be true.
    I'll give her all the love I have to give
    As long as we both shall live.

    Venus, goddess of love that you are
    Surely the things I ask
    Can't be too great a task.

    Venus if you do
    I promise that I always will be true.
    I'll give her all the love I have to give
    As long as we both shall live.

    Hey, Venus! Oh, Venus!
    Make my wish come true.

    "The Battle Of New Orleans"

    by Johnny Horton
    songwriter: Jimmie Driftwood
    Jun. 1st, 1959 - (#1 - 6 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    In 1814 we took a little trip
    Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip
    We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
    And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans

    We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
    We fired once more and they began to runnin' on
    Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    We looked down the river and we see'd the British come
    And there must have been a hundred of'em beatin' on the drum
    They stepped so high and they made the bugles ring
    We stood beside our cotton bales and didn't say a thing

    We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
    We fired once more and they began to runnin' on
    Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise
    If we didn't fire our muskets 'til we looked 'em in the eye
    We held our fire 'til we see'd their faces well
    Then we opened up with squirrel guns and really gave 'em ... well

    We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
    We fired once more and they began to runnin' on
    Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
    And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go
    They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down
    So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round
    We filled his head with cannon balls, and powdered his behind
    And when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his mind

    We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
    We fired once more and they began to runnin' on
    Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
    And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go
    They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    (hut two, three four, sound off, three, four)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I'm just a lonely boy
    lonely and blue
    I'm all alone
    With nothin' to do

    I've got everything
    You could think of
    But all I want
    Is someone to love

    Someone, yes someone to love
    Someone to kiss
    Someone to hold
    At a moment like this

    I'd like to hear
    Somebody say
    I'll give you my love
    Each night and day

    I'm just a lonely boy
    lonely and blue
    I'm all alone
    With nothin' to do

    I've got everything
    You could think of
    But all I want
    Is someone to love

    Somebody, somebody, somebody, please
    Send her to me
    I'll make her happy
    Just wait and see

    I've prayed so hard
    To the heavens above
    That I might find
    Someone to love

    I'm just a lonely boy
    lonely and blue
    I'm all alone
    With nothin' to do

    I've got everything (fades out)

    Hey baby, I ain't askin' much of you
    no no no no no no no no
    baby, I ain't askin' much of you
    just a-big a-big a-big a-hunka love will do

    Don't be a stingy little mama
    you're 'bout to starve me half to death
    now you can spare a kiss or two
    and still have plenty left

    Oh no no baby
    I ain't askin' much of you
    just a-big a-big a-big a-hunka love will do
    thats right

    You're just a natural born beehive
    filled with honey to the top
    but I ain't greedy baby
    all I want is all you got

    Oh no no
    baby, I ain't askin' much of you
    just a-big a-big a-big a-hunka love will do
    thats right

    I got a wishbone in my pocket
    I got a rabbit foot around my wrist
    I'd have all the things my lucky charms could bring
    if you give me just a one sweet kiss

    Oh no no no no no no no no
    baby, I ain't askin' much of you
    just a-big a-hunka hunka hunka love will do, thats right
    just a-big a-big a-big a-hunka love will do, that's right

    "The Three Bells"

    by The Browns
    songwriters: Bert Reisfeld/Jean Villard
    Aug. 24th, 1959 - (#1 - 4 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    There's a village hidden deep in the valley
    Among the pine trees half forlorn
    And there on a sunny morning
    Little Jimmy Brown was born

    All the chapel bells were ringing
    In the little valley town
    And the songs that they were singing
    Was for baby Jimmy Brown
    Then the little congregation
    Prayed for guidance from above
    Lead us not into temptation,
    Bless this hour of meditation
    Guide him with eternal love

    There's a village hidden deep in the valley
    Beneath the mountains high above
    And there, twenty years thereafter
    Jimmy was to meet his love

    All the chapel bells were ringing,
    Was a great day in his life
    Cause the songs that they were singing
    Was for Jimmy and his wife
    Then the little congregation
    Prayed for guidance from above
    Lead us not into temptation,
    Bless oh Lord this celebration
    May their lives be filled with love

    From the village hidden deep in the valley
    One rainy morning dark and gray
    A soul winged its way to heaven
    Jimmy Brown had passed away

    Just a lonely bell was ringing
    In the little valley town
    Twas farewell that it was singing
    To our good old Jimmy Brown, (little Jimmy Brown)

    And the little congregation
    Prayed for guidance from above
    Lead us not into temptation,
    May his soul find the salvation
    Of thy great eternal love

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Instead of dreaming
    I Sleepwalk
    Cause I lost you
    And now what am I to do
    What to do.
    Can't believe that we're through
    I don't care how much you tell me

    Sleeptalk
    Cause I miss you
    While the memory of you
    Lingers like a song
    Darling, I was so wrong
    But I'll be right some day

    The night fills my lonely place
    I see your face
    I know, I miss you so
    I still love you
    And it drives me insane

    Sleepwalk
    Every night I just Sleepwalk
    And when you walk inside the door
    I will Sleepwalk no more

    Sleepwalk
    Every night I just Sleepwalk
    And when you walk inside the door
    I will Sleepwalk no more

    I will Sleepwalk no more
    I will Sleepwalk no more

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Our guardian star lost all his glow
    The day that I lost you
    He lost all his glitter the day you said no
    And his silver turned to blue

    Like him I am doubtful
    That your love is true
    But if you decide to call on me
    Ask for Mr. Blue

    I'm Mr. Blue
    When you say you love me (Mr. Blue)
    Then prove it by goin' out on the sly
    Provin' your love isn't true
    Call me Mr. Blue

    I'm Mr. Blue
    When you say you're sorry (Mr. Blue)
    Then turn around headin' for the lights of town
    Hurtin' me through and through
    Call me Mr. Blue

    I stay at home at night (I stay at home)
    Right by the phone at night (right by the phone)
    But you won't call
    And I won't hurt my pride
    Call me mister....

    I won't tell you
    While you paint the town (Mr. Blue)
    A bright red to turn it upside down
    I'm paintin' it too
    But I'm paintin' it blue
    Call me Mr. Blue
    Call me Mr. Blue
    Call me Mr. Blue (fades out)

    by Guy Mitchell
    Born: Died: N/A Cause: N/A
    songwriter: Harlan Howard
    Dec. 14th, 1959 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (whistling)

    Heartaches by the number
    Troubles by the score
    Everyday you love me less
    Each day I love you more
    Yes, I've got heartaches by the number
    A love that I can't win
    But the day that I stop counting
    That's the day my world will end

    Heartache number one was when you left me
    I never knew that I could hurt this way
    And heartache number two
    Was when you come back again
    You came back but never meant to stay

    Yes, I've got
    Heartaches by the number
    Troubles by the score
    Everyday you love me less
    Each day I love you more
    Yes, I've got heartaches by the number
    A love that I can't win
    But the day that I stop counting
    That's the day my world will end

    (whistling)

    Heartache number three
    was when you called me
    And said that you were comin' back to stay
    With hopeful heart
    I waited for your knock on the door
    I waited but you must have lost your way

    Yes, I've got
    Heartaches by the number
    Troubles by the score
    Everyday you love me less
    Each day I love you more
    Yes, I've got heartaches by the number
    A love that I can't win
    But the day that I stop counting
    That's the day my world will end

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I'll never let you go
    Why? Because I love you
    I'll always love you so
    Why? Because you love me

    No broken hearts for us
    'Cause we love each other
    And with our faith and trust
    There could be no other

    Why? 'Cause I love you
    Why? 'Cause you love me

    I think you're awfully sweet
    Why? Because I love you
    You say I'm your special treat
    Why? Because you love me

    We found the perfect love
    Yes, a love that's yours and mine
    I love you and love you me
    All the time

    (I'll never let you go)
    (Why? Because I love you)
    Yes, I love you
    (I'll always love you so)
    (Why? Because you love me)
    Yes, you love me

    We found the perfect love
    Yes, a love that's yours and mine
    I love you and love you me
    I love you and love you me
    We'll love each other, dear
    Forever

    "El Paso" by Marty Robbins

    "El Paso"

    by Marty Robbins
    songwriter: Marty Robbins
    Jan. 4th, 1960 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
    I fell in love with a Mexican girl.
    Night-time would find me in Rosa's cantina;
    Music would play and Felina would whirl.

    Blacker than night were the eyes of Felina,
    Wicked and evil while casting a spell.
    My love was deep for this Mexican maiden;
    I was in love but in vain, I could tell.

    One night a wild young cowboy came in,
    Wild as the West Texas wind.
    Dashing and daring,
    A drink he was sharing
    With wicked Felina,
    The girl that I loved.

    So in anger I

    Challenged his right for the love of this maiden.
    Down went his hand for the gun that he wore.
    My challenge was answered in less than a heart-beat;
    The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor.

    Just for a moment I stood there in silence,
    Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done.
    Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there;
    I had but one chance and that was to run.

    Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran,
    Out where the horses were tied.
    I caught a good one.
    It looked like it could run.
    Up on its back
    And away I did ride,

    Just as fast as I

    Could from the West Texas town of El Paso
    Out to the bad-lands of New Mexico.

    Back in El Paso my life would be worthless.
    Everything's gone in life; nothing is left.
    It's been so long since I've seen the young maiden
    My love is stronger than my fear of death.

    I saddled up and away I did go,
    Riding alone in the dark.
    Maybe tomorrow
    A bullet may find me.
    Tonight nothing's worse than this
    Pain in my heart.

    And at last here I

    Am on the hill overlooking El Paso;
    I can see Rosa's cantina below.
    My love is strong and it pushes me onward.
    Down off the hill to Felina I go.

    Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys;
    Off to my left ride a dozen or more.
    Shouting and shooting I can't let them catch me.
    I have to make it to Rosa's back door.

    Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel
    A deep burning pain in my side.
    Though I am trying
    To stay in the saddle,
    I'm getting weary,
    Unable to ride.

    But my love for

    Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen,
    Though I am weary I can't stop to rest.
    I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle.
    I feel the bullet go deep in my chest.

    From out of nowhere Felina has found me,
    Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side.
    Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for,
    One little kiss and Felina, good-bye.

    "Running Bear"

    by Johnny Preston
    songwriter: J.P. Richardson (The 'Big' Bopper)
    Jan. 18th, 1960 - (#1 - 3 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    On the bank of the river
    Stood Runnin' Bear, young Indian brave
    On the other side of the river
    Stood his lovely Indian maid
    Little White Dove was-a her name
    Such a lovely sight to see
    But their tribes fought with each other
    So their love could never be

    Runnin' Bear loved Little White Dove
    With a love big as the sky
    Runnin' Bear loved Little White Dove
    With a love that couldn't die

    He couldn't swim the raging river
    'Cause the river was too wide
    He couldn't reach Little White Dove
    Waiting on the other side
    In the moonlight he could see her
    Throwing kisses 'cross the waves
    Her little heart was beating faster
    Waiting there for her brave

    Runnin' Bear loved Little White Dove
    With a love big as the sky
    Runnin' Bear loved Little White Dove
    With a love that couldn't die

    Runnin' Bear dove in the water
    Little White Dove did the same
    And they swam out to each other
    Through the swirling stream they came
    As their hands touched and their lips met
    The ragin' river pulled them down
    Now they'll always be together
    In that happy hunting ground

    Runnin' Bear loved Little White Dove
    With a love big as the sky
    Runnin' Bear loved Little White Dove
    With a love that couldn't die

    "Teen Angel"

    by Mark Dinning
    songwriters: Jean Surrey/Red Surrey
    Feb. 8th, 1960 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Teen angel, teen angel, teen angel, ooh, ooh

    That fateful night the car was stalled
    upon the railroad track
    I pulled you out and we were safe
    but you went running back

    Teen angel, can you hear me
    Teen angel, can you see me
    Are you somewhere up above
    And I am still your own true love

    What was it you were looking for
    that took your life that night
    They said they found my high school ring
    clutched in your fingers tight

    Teen angel, can you hear me
    Teen angel, can you see me
    Are you somewhere up above
    And I am still your own true love

    Just sweet sixteen, and now you're gone
    They've taken you away.
    I'll never kiss your lips again
    They buried you today

    Teen angel, can you hear me
    Teen angel, can you see me
    Are you somewhere up above
    And I am still your own true love
    Teen angel, teen angel, answer me, please

    "The Theme From "A Summer Place"" by Percy Faith

    "The Theme From "A Summer Place""

    by Percy Faith
    songwriter: Max Steiner
    Feb. 22nd, 1960 - (#1 - 9 weeks)

    (Although Percy faith's #1 hit is an instrumental there are lyrics
    to this music that was from the 1959 movie, "A Summer Place"
    starring Sandra Dee & Troy Donahue).

    (The Lettermen's 1965 version with lyrics which peaked at #16 in July 1965)


    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    There's a summer place
    Where it may rain or storm
    Yet I'm safe and warm
    For within that summer place
    Your arms reach out to me
    And my heart is free from all care
    For it knows

    There are no gloomy skies
    When seen through the eyes
    Of those who are blessed with love

    And the sweet secret of
    A summer place
    Is that it's anywhere
    When two people share
    All their hopes
    All their dreams
    All their love

    There's a summer place
    Where it may rain or storm
    Yet I'm safe and warm
    In your arms, in your arms
    In your arms, in your arms
    In your arms, in your arms
    In your arms, in your arms
    In your arms, in your arms (fades out)

    You can shake an apple off an apple tree
    Shake-a, shake- sugar,

    "Cathy's Clown"

    by The Everly Brothers
    songwriters: Don Everly/Phil Everly
    May 23rd, 1960 - (#1 - 5 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Don’t want your love anymore
    Don’t want your kisses, that’s for sure
    I die each time I hear this sound
    Here he comes, that’s Cathy’s Clown

    I’ve got to stand tall
    You know a man can’t crawl
    For when he knows you tell lies
    And he lets them pass him by
    He’s not a man at all

    Don’t want your love anymore
    Don’t want your kisses, that’s for sure
    I die each time I hear this sound
    Here he comes, that’s Cathy’s Clown

    When you see me shed a tear
    And you know that it’s sincere
    Don’t you think it’s kind of sad
    That you’re treating me so bad
    Or don’t you even care

    Don’t want your love anymore
    Don’t want your kisses, that’s for sure
    I die each time I hear this sound
    Here he comes, that’s Cathy’s Clown

    That’s Cathy’s clown
    That’s Cathy’s clown (fades out)

    "Everybody's Somebody's Fool"

    by Connie Francis
    songwriters: Howard Greenfield/Jack Keller
    Jun. 27th, 1960 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    The tears I cry for you, could fill an ocean
    But you don't care how many tears I cry
    And though you only lead me on and hurt me
    I couldn't bring myself to say goodbye

    Cause everybody's somebody's fool
    Everybody's somebody's plaything
    And there are no exceptions to the rule
    Yes, everybody's somebody's fool

    I told myself it's best that I forget you
    Though I'm a fool at least I know the score
    Yet darlin' I'd be twice as blue without you
    It hurts but I come runnin' back for more

    Cause everybody's somebody's fool
    Everybody's somebody's plaything
    And there are no exceptions to the rule
    Yes, everybody's somebody's fool

    Someday you'll find someone you really care for
    And if her love should prove to be untrue
    You'll know how much this heart of mine is breaking
    You'll cry for her the way I've cried for you

    Yes, everybody's somebody's fool
    Everybody's somebody's plaything
    And there are no exceptions to the rule
    Yes, everybody's somebody's fool

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    There's a man in the funny papers we all know
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    He lives way back a long time ago
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    He don't eat nothin' but a bear cat stew
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    Well and this cat's name is-a Alley Oop
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop

    He's got a chauffer that's a genuine dinosaur
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    And he can knuckle your head before you count to four
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    He's got a big ugly club and a head full of hair-air
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    A-like a great big lions and grizzly bear
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop

    Alley Oop, He's the toughest man there is alive
    Alley Oop, Wearin' clothes from a wild cat's hide
    Alley Oop, He's the king of the jungle jive
    Look at that cave man go (scream)

    He rides through the jungle tearin' limbs off a tree
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    Knockin' great big monsters dead on their knees
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    The cats don't bug him 'cause they know better
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop
    'Cause he's a mean motor scooter and a bad go getter
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop

    Alley Oop, He's the toughest man there is alive
    Alley Oop, Wears clothes from a wild cat's hide
    Alley Oop, He's the king of the jungle jive
    Look at that cave man go (scream)

    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop (there he goes)
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop (a-look at that cave man go)
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop (he sure is hip ain't he)
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop (like what's happening)
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop (he's too much)
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop (ride, daddy, ride)
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop (hi-yo dinosaur)
    Alley Oop-oop, Oop, Oop-oop (ride daddy, ride)

    Get 'em, man
    Like, hipsville (fades out)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    She was afraid to come out of the locker
    She was as nervous as she could be
    She was afraid to come out of the locker
    She was afraid that somebody would see
    Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

    It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
    That she wore for the first time today
    An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
    So in the locker she wanted to stay
    Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more

    She was afraid to come out in the open
    And so a blanket around her she wore
    She was afraid to come out in the open
    And so she sat bundled up on the shore
    Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

    It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
    That she wore for the first time today
    An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
    So in the blanket she wanted to stay
    Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more

    Now she is afraid to come out of the water
    And I wonder what she's gonna do
    Now she is afraid to come out of the water
    And the poor little girl's turning blue
    Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

    It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
    That she wore for the first time today
    An itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini
    So in the water she wanted to stay

    (From the locker to the blanket)
    (From the blanket to the shore)
    (From the shore to the water)
    Yes there isn't any more
