Lyric Search

I've been a Northern Soul fan for 30 odd years now, and still some lyrics escape me and I find I make my own up as I go along...and most of the time they don't even make any sense at all (but don't we all do that?). I've searched the web for a site that might have some of these lyrics (songs such as Barbara Mills' "Queen Of Fools", Jerry Williams "If You Ask (Me Because I Love You)"). I have been onto a lot of lyric search sites, but none of the one's I have checked out have these songs listed....anyone help me?

Mick Fitz who run's another list and web site was working on a site for lyrics, it's not ready to be launched yet though, but when it is I will mail up here and let you know where to find it.

My best lyrical mistake was "she's wanted with green steaks"

:-)))))

I was watching a good documentary on Kool & The Gang on ITV last night. There was film of them doing "Jungle Boogie", and I swear they actually sang "Chunder Boogie"!!!!

OKEH! Thanx Janine, I'll keep an eye out for that!...

Some years back I heard a feature on local radio where they told of lyrics that had been mistaken for other words, and Diana Ross & The Supremes' "Love Child" was featured...

The words "No child of mine'll be bearin, The name of shame I've been wearin" had been misheard as "No child of mine'll be bearin, The name of shame of Eddie Waring"

SEE!! we DO need a good soul lyric site! (",)

When I was a kid, I used to think a lyric in "Saturday Night At The Movies" by the Drifters went "The chapati in the neighbourhood is dressing up to be there too..."!!

Or the lyric from "Do What You Gotta Do" by the Four Tops that sounds like; "I loved you better than your own kidney...."

Whilst DJing I've been asked for such classics as 'Skinhead in the snow'; 'You've got VD' (Bobby Valentines Bad Breath in case your wondering); and my own fave 'I've got a car Load' which turned out to be 'Manifesto!!!!!!!' - ah, the joys of the soulful ear
