Hold back the night
Turn on the light.
Don't wanna dream about you , Baby.

    My heart took a beating from the lyin' and cheatin'
    She really knows how to hurt
    So I guess I'm lucky I'm outta the clutches
    I can't forget good she looks
    One taste of the bait is worth
    The pain of the hook

      A white sports coat and a pink carnation
      I'm all dressed up for the dance
      A white sports coat and a pink carnation
      I'm all alone in romance

        And for those who now can't stand not remembering the rest of that Marty Robbins song:

        Once you told me long ago
        To the prom with me you'd go
        Now you've changed your mind it seems
        Someone else will hold my dreams
        A white sports coat and a pink carnation
        I'm in a blue blue mood.
        I'm all dressed up for the dance
        I'm all alone in romance
        Once you told me long ago
        To the prom with me you'd go
        Now you've changed your mind it seems
        Someone else will hold my dreams
        A white sports coat and a pink carnation
        I'm in a blue blue mood.

          I saw her snatch her suitcase from the window
          I held her but a moment in the rain
          I kissed as she started for the station...

            One pill makes you larger
            and one pill makes you small
            and the ones that mother gives you
            don't do anything at all

              And in a similar cadence:
               
              Who you been lovin' since I been gone?
              A long tall man with a red coat on.
              Good-for-nothing-baby you've been doing me wrong.
              Who you been lovin' since I been gone?
              Who you been lovin' since I been gone?

                There was a boy,
                a very strange enchanted boy,
                they say he wandered very far, very far, over land and sea,
                a little shy,
                and sad of eye,
                but very wise was he

                  Warren Smith's version of this song is my favorite:

                    but very wise was he


                    And then one day,
                    One magic day he came my way.
                    We spoke of many things,
                    Fools and kings
                    This he said to me ....
                     
                     Ah, Nature Boy. Nat Cole.

                        But before you go thinking I'm all classy and stuff, the other song that's been stuck in my head all day is 'Monster' by Lady Gaga, specifically:

                        he
                        ate
                        my
                        heart
                        he
                        a-a-a-ate my heart

                              Baby I don't know
                              what I think of us
                              Won't be here tomorrow
                              I get so mixed up
                              It's a shame that we're not living in the country
                              A place that I once seen before
                              In a book you've always loved, but never showed me
                              You know I never lost before

                                  Went to a Dionne Warwick concert many years ago at the Carter Baron Ampetheater in DC, an old and I do mean old black group opened for her and sang this song, the place rocked with it!

                                    I listen to Nat King Cole quite a lot actually.  My favorite song is 'Sweet Lorraine.'


                                    About 150 years ago I was flying TWA from New York to Dallas while returning from leave and we were diverted to Midland-Odessa because of weather. Among the passengers aboard was the Nat "King" Cole Trio. They had a date in Dallas -- at the Adolphus, if memory serves. When it appeared that we'd be stuck there for several hours, The Nat "King" Cole Trio performed in the airport bar for over two hours, playing what they felt like and taking requests. That was a most wonderful experience. What a gracious man he was.
                                     
                                    Oh, and Sweet Lorraine was one of the numbers. So were Nature Boy and Mona Lisa
