Music talk, "Laugh, Laugh" by Beau Brummels

As I've blogged before and people who've known me for a long time know, I was listening to pop radio even as a very small toddler and enjoy the songs of the 1950's very much. This song popped into my mind (the tune is awesome) as they sometimes do, so I thought I'd introduce you to this great oldie song. Just to be precise, this is a Beattle era song, hit the charts in 1965, but to me, it is an oldie, LOL.

I hate to say it but I told you so

Don't mind my preaching to you

I said "don't trust him", baby, now you know

You don't learn everything there is to know in school

Wouldn't believe me when I gave advice

I said that he was a tease

If you want help you better ask me nice

So be sincere, convince me with a "pretty please"

(Chorus)Laugh, Laugh, I thought I'd die

It seemed so funny to me,

Laugh, Laugh, you met a guy

who taught you how it feels to be

Lonely, oh so lonely

Don't think I'm being funny when I say

You got just what you deserve

I can't help feeling you found out today

You thought you were too good you had a lot of nerve

Won't say I'm sorry for the things I said

I'm glad he packed up to go

You kept on bragging he was yours instead

Found you don't know everything there is to know


Before I go I'd like to say one thing

Don't close your ears to me

Take my advice and you'll find out that being

Just another girl won't cause you misery

You say you can get any boy at your call

Don't be so smug or else

You'll find you can't get any boy at all

You'll wind up an old lady sitting on the shelf


Lonely, oh so lonely
