What's that song?

I notice some people are hijacking a thread, bringing up lyrics of old songs. So, I propose we make a thread to bring up lyrics of old songs. One person post some lyrics. Others tell us the song title, and add more lyrics if they want, and then give some lyrics of their own. And the cycle starts again.

I'll go first. Hmmmmm. Let me see. Ah! I've got one, and it's easy. So I expect someone to get it quick. Here it is:

"There's a tugboat, huh, huh, down by the river dontcha know
Where a cement bag's just a'drooppin' on down
Oh, that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old Macky's back in town
Now d'ja hear 'bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
After drawin' out all his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?"

Claaaaasic

Mack the Knife from "The Threepenny Opera" (one of my favorites)...

Suky Tawdry, Jenny Diver
Polly Peachum, Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right dears
Now that Mackies back in town

Oh the shark has pretty teeth dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has Macheath dear
And he keeps it out of sight
Just a jackknife has Macheath dear
And he keeps it out of sight


Here's one:

You leave the Pennsylvania Station 'bout a quarter to four
Read a magazine and then you're in Baltimore
Dinner in the diner
Nothing could be finer
Than to have your ham an' eggs in Carolina

How about this one:

When it's late in the evening I climb up the hill
And survey all my kingdom while everything's still
Just me and the moon and an old whipoorwill
Singing songs in the twilight on ..................

A Whacky one - "We're in a lotta troube, chief, on account of your boy, Mac.

Shoulda read that Detour sign.

Detour, there's a muddy road ahead,
Detour, shoulda looked at what it said
Detour, all these worries on my mind
Shoulda read that Detour sign.

Don't know the next one.

Sounds like a good idea :)

Here's mine:

Looking from a window above
It's like a story of love
Want you near me
Came back only yesterday
I'm moving further away.....

Don't know your first one, Snip. The second one is, wait for it, "The summer of 69".

Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress

Here's One:

Just yesterday morning, they let me know you were gone.
Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you.
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song,
I just can't remember who to send it to.

Try this...

Sitting here wasted and wounded, at this old piano...
Trying hard to capture the moment, this morning I don't know....
While this bottle of Vodka still lodged in my head and some blonde gave me nightmares....

Yes, Fire and Rain, from the "Sweet Baby James" album.

another:

I come fresh from the street
Fast on my feet, kinda lean and lazy
Not much meat on my bones
And a whole lot alone, more than a little bit crazy

Must be country, or pop, the only two genre's I know almost nothing about. I just don't know it. Good job. You stumped me, and that ain't easy.

PF, you must be getting pointers from Tin Lizzie. I don't know that one either.

One of my all time favorite song lines:

Our body's a temple, that's what we're taught, but I've treated this one like an old honky tonk.
