Maybe baby, I'll have you
Maybe baby, you'll be true
Maybe baby, I'll have you for me

Crying, Waiting, Hoping Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Crying, waiting, hoping you'll come back
I just can't seem to get you off my mind
Crying, waiting, hoping you'll come back
You're the one I love
And I think about you all the time

Crying, my tears keep a-falling all night long
Waiting, it feels so useless, I know it's wrong
To keep a-crying, waiting, hoping you'll come back
Maybe someday soon
Things will change and you'll be mine

Crying, my tears keep falling all night long
Waiting, it feels so useless, I know it's wrong
To keep a-crying, waiting, hoping you'll come back
Maybe someday soon
Things will change and you'll be mine
Crying, waiting, hoping...

Lonesome Tears Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Lonesome tears sad and blue
I shed lonesome tears for you
Guess you know I know why
I cried when you said goodbye

When you left and you said "I'm gone"
Lonesome tears fell all night long
Yes, you know I know I cried
When you said goodbye

You left me here all alone
Hear me callin', won't you back home
Love me like you did before
Now need I tell you more ?

Lonesome tears sad and blue
I shed lonesome tears for you
Guess you know I know I cried
When you said goodbye

That's My Desire Lyrics – Buddy Holly

To spend one night with you in our old rendezvous
And reminisce with you, that's my desire
To meet where gipsies play down in some small cafe
And dance till break of day, that's my desire

We'll sip a little glass of wine, I'll gaze into your eyes divine
To feel the touch of your lips pressing on mine

To hear you whisper low just when it's time to go
"Cheri I love you so," that's my desire
We'll sip a little glass of wine, I'll gaze into your eyes divine
To feel the touch of your lips pressing on mine

To hear you whisper low just when it's time to go
"Cheri I love you so," that's my desire

Real Wild Child Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well, I'm just out of school
Like I'm real, real cool
Gotta dance like a fool
Got the message that I've gotta be a wild
I'm a wild one, ooh yay, I'm a wild one
Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a-movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin'
Baby I'm a real wild child

Gonna meet all my friends
Gonna have myself a ball
Gonna tell my friends
Gonna tell them all
That I'm a wild one, ooh yay, I'm a wild one
Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a-movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin'
Baby I'm a real wild child

Well, I'm a real wild one
And I like wild fun
In a world gone crazy
Ev'rything seems hazy
I'm a wild one, ooh yay, I'm a wild one
Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a-movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin'
Baby I'm a real wild child

Not a doubt, not a maybe
I'm a real wild child
Don't-cha pout, my baby
When I start a-runnin' wild
'Cause I'm a wild one, ooh yay, I'm a wild one
Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a-movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin'
Baby I'm a real wild child

[Spoken:]
Wanna know my name?
I'm a wild child
Nothin' tame about this Ted
I'm a wild child
You bet, I'm a wild child

Peggy Sue Got Married Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Please don't tell, no-no-no
Don't say that I told you so
I just heard a rumour from a friend
I don't say that it's true
I'll just leave that up to you
If you don't believe I'll understand
You recall a girl that's been in nearly every song
This is what I heard, of course the story could be wrong
She's the one, I've been told
Now, she's wearing a band of gold
Peggy Sue got married not long ago

You recall a girl that's been in nearly every song
This is what I heard, of course the story could be wrong
She's the one, I've been told
Well, she's wearing a band of gold
Peggy Sue got married not long ago
Peggy Sue got married not long ago

Fool's Paradise Lyrics – Buddy Holly

You took me up to heaven
When you took me in your arms
I was dazzled by your kisses
Blinded by your charms
I was lost, in a Fool's Paradise
Good and lost, in a Fool's Paradise

When you told me that you loved me
I gave my heart to you
And I wondered if there could be
Any truth in love so new
I was lost, in a Fool's Paradise
Good and lost, in a Fool's Paradise

The whole world was my kingdom
And your love the gem in my crown
Then I saw you glance at a new romance
And my love came tumbling down

Though you treat me kind-a coolish
And may never let me know
That you think I'm being foolish
Because I love you so
I'll still get lost, in a Fool's Paradise
Lost with you, in a Fool's Paradise

Though you treat me kind-a coolish
And may never let me know
That you think I'm being foo-oo-oo-lish
Because I love you so
I'll still get lost, in a Fool's Paradise
Lost with you, in a Fool's Paradise
Lost with you, in a Fool's Paradise

Learning The Game Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Hearts that are broken and love that's untrue
These go with learning the game

When you love her and she doesn't love you
You're only learning the game

When she says that you're the only one she'll ever love
Then you find that you are not the one she's thinking of

Feeling so sad and you're all alone and blue
That's when you're learning the game

When she says that you're the only one she'll ever love
Then you find that you are not the one she's thinking of

Feeling so sad and you're all alone and blue
That's when you're learning the game

That's when you're learning the game

That's What They Say Lyrics – Buddy Holly

There comes a time for ev'rybody
When true love will come your way
There comes a time for ev'rybody
That's what they tell me
That's what they say

I didn't hear them say a word
Of when that time would be
I only know that what they say
Has not come true for me

You just keep waiting
And love will come your way
That's what they tell me
That's what they say

There comes a time for ev'rybody
When true love will come your way
There comes a time for ev'rybody
That's what they tell me
That's what they say

I didn't hear them say a word
Of when that time would be
I only know that what they say
Has not come true for me

You just keep waiting
And love will come your way
That's what they tell me
That's what they say
That's what they tell me
That's what they say

Reminiscing Lyrics – Buddy Holly

I'm just sittin' here reminiscin'
Wonderin' who you've been kissin'
Baby, oh-oh baby
I've been wanderin' all around
There must be a new guy in town
You don't love me any more
I'll get over you-a-oo baby
Although my heart's still sore
Well, you know my heart's still sore

When I think of all the lies you told
To that young man my heart you've sold
You're a cheater and a mean mistreater
When I think of all the fun we had
Kind of makes me feel so sad
I'm lonely for your love
And the longest day I live
It's only you that I'll be thinkin' of
You know I'm thinkin' of
Well, it's you I'm thinkin' of
Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm-mm

What To Do Lyrics – Buddy Holly

What to do
Now that she doesn't want me
That's what haunts me
What to do

What to do
To keep from being lonely
Want her only
What to do

The record hops
And all the happy times we had
The soda shop
The walks to school now makes me sad

Oh, what to do
I know my heart ache's showin'
Still not knowin'
What to do

Love Is Strange Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Love(mm-mm-mm), love is strange (mm-mm-mm)
A lot of people (mm-mm-mm) take it for a game
Once you get it (mm-mm-mm) you're in an awful fix (mm-mm-mm)
After you've had it (mm-mm-mm) you'll never wanna quit

Many people (mm-mm-mm), don't understand (no, no)

Your sweet lovin' (mm-mm-mm) is better than a kiss (yay-ee-ay)
When you leave me (mm-mm-mm) sweet kisses I miss

Love(mm-mm-mm), love is strange (mm-mm-mm)
A lot of people (mm-mm-mm) take it for a game

After you've had it (mm-mm-mm) you'll never wanna quit

Many people (mm-mm-mm), don't understand (no, no)
They think loving (yay-ee-ay) is money in the hand
Your sweet lovin' (mm-mm-mm) is better than a kiss (yay-ee-ay)
When you leave me (mm-mm-mm) sweet kisses I miss

Blue Monday Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Blue Monday, how I hate Blue Monday
Got to work like a slave all day
Here come Tuesday, oh hard Tuesday
I'm so tired that I've no time to play

Here come Wednesday, I'm beat to my socks
My gal calls, and I tell her that I'm out
'Cause Thursday is a hard workin' day
And Friday I get my pay

Saturday mornin', oh Saturday mornin'
All my tiredness has gone all away
Find my money meet my honey
And go out on the town to play

Sunday mornin' my head is bad
But it's worth it for the time that I've had
But I've got to get my rest
'Cause Monday is a mess

Saturday mornin', oh Saturday mornin'
All my tiredness has gone all away
Find my money meet my honey
And go out on the town to play

Sunday mornin' my head is bad
But it's worth it for the time that I've had
But I've got to get my rest
'Cause Monday is a mess

Have You Ever Been Lonely (Have You Ever Been Blue) Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Have you ever been lonely?
Have you ever been blue?
Have you ever loved someone
Just as I love you?

Can't you see I'm sorry
For each mistake I've made?
Can't you see I've changed dear?
Can't you see I've paid?

Be a little forgiving,
Take me back to your heart.
How can I go on living
While we're apart?

If you knew what I've been through
Then you'd know why I ask you
Have you ever been lonely?
Have you ever been blue?

Mother !!!

Smokey Joe's Cafe Lyrics – Buddy Holly

One day while I was eating down at Smokey Joe's Cafe
A-sittin' there readin' down at Smokey Joe's Cafe
A chicken walked in through the door
That I had never seen before
At least I never saw her down at Smokey Joe's Cafe
And it scared me when she sat right down next to me

Her knees were almost touching mine at Smokey Joe's Cafe
A chill was runnin'down my spine at Smokey Joe's Cafe
I could smell her sweet perfume
She smiled and made my heart go boom
And everybody in the room at Smokey Joe's Cafe
They said, "Be careful - that chick belongs to Smokey Joe"

And from behind the counter - I saw a man
A chef's hat on his head and a knife in his hand
He grabbed me by the collar and began to shout
"You better eat up all your beans, boy and clear right on out!"

Well, I know I'll never eat again at Smokey Joe's Cafe
And so I'll never see again at Smokey Joe's Cafe
I'd rather eat my chili beans at Jim's or Jack's or John's or Gene's
Than take my chances eating down at Smokey Joe's Cafe
I risked my life when that Smokey Joe's a crazy fool

Ain't Got No Home Lyrics – Buddy Holly

I ain't got no home
No place to roam
I ain't got no home
No place to roam
I'm a lonely boy
I ain't got a home

I got a voice
And I love to sing
I can sing like a girl
And I can sing like a frog
I'm a lonely boy
I ain't got a home

I ain't got a man
I ain't got no one
I ain't got a daughter
I ain't got no boy
I'm a lonely girl
I ain't got a home

I ain't got a father
I ain't got a mother
I ain't got a sister
Not even a brother
I'm a lonely frog
I ain't got a home

What you say to me
Please say to me
What you say to me
Please say to me
I'm a lonely frog
I ain't got a home

Door To My Heart Lyrics – Buddy Holly

I opened the door and left it standing
The door to my heart - your love demanding
But you were not willing to just step inside
Now the door to my heart is still open wide

I thought you would enter - and stay there with me
When I opened the door - to let your love come in
Now you've shunned my hope - my love and my pride
But the door to my heart is still open wide

Baby It's Love Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Sixty seconds of heavenly bliss
One minute of your sweet kiss
Then my heart was all a mess
It's love, baby it's love

Sixty minutes of you in my arms
One hour to learn of all your charms
Then my heart's like a fire alarm
It's love, baby, it's love

Twelve hours of you to tantalize
One day for me to realize
My heart flutters like butterflies
It's love, baby it's love

Seven days, a wedding to plan
One week and then I began
My life of a happily married man
It's love, baby, it's love

Sixty seconds of heavenly bliss
One minute of your sweet kiss
Then my heart was all a mess
It's love, baby, it's love

Sixty minutes of you in my arms
One hour to learn of all your charms
Then my heart's like a fire alarm
It's love, baby, it's love

Twelve hours of you to tantalize
One day for me to realize
My heart flutters like butterflies
It's love, baby it's love

Four weeks of quarrels and kisses
One month of fighting the missus
I'm wondering now
What the heck that this is
If it's love, baby, what's love?

I Gambled My Heart Lyrics – Buddy Holly

When you love someone
And then you found you've lost
Why must a true heart be left to pay the cost
Why must a heart that has been true
Be broken and sad, so empty and blue

I gambled my heart and I lost it to you
Now I'll spend my life wondering why I love you
Someday you'll know why I'm so blue
When you've gambled your heart
And you've lost it too

Why must it be the one you want most of all
They'll build you up and then let you fall
They'll lead you on, you'll think that they're true
They'll love you then leave you so empty and blue

Memories Lyrics – Buddy Holly

You've left me alone with memories
I tried to endure you in this cheating
I loved you with my heart's every beating
Now my hopes are gone like wi-ind through the trees
'Cause you've left me alone with memories

I know that it may seem to you that I don't really care
But someday when you're all alone and memories are there
You'll know you've left me alone with memories

I tried forgetting what you meant to me
For now I realize that I'm alone
In my mind I really know that you are gone
But my foolish heart refuses to see
Why you've left me alone with memories

I know that it may seem to you that I don't really care
But someday when you're all alone and memories are there
You'll know you've left me alone with memories

Wishing Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Wishing that I could see you every day
Wishing that I could steal your heart away

Dreaming of the time I can hold you tight
Wishing that the time would come tonight

I been hopin' all along things would turn out right
If I could find a wishing star then I would spend the ni-i-ight

Wishing that I could see you every day
Wishing that I could steal your heart away

I been hopin' all along things would turn out right
If I could find a wishing star then I would spend the ni-i-ight

Wishing that I could see you every day
Wishing that I could steal your heart away

Down The Line Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well, my ol' car's a-rollin' down the line
Thoughts of my baby runnin' through my mind
She's a-waitin' for me, I gotta be on time
I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go
I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go

Well, the white marker's flying off the road below
Man, I'm a-really flyin' low
My baby's waitin', I can't go slow
I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go
I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go

Well, a big policeman pulled alongside a-me
He said, "Boy you ain't quite as fast as me!"
I showed him a picture of that baby of mine
He said, "Boy you gotta roll on down that line!"

Well, my ol' car's a-rollin' down the line
Thoughts of my baby runnin' through my mind
She's a-waitin' for me, I gotta be on time
I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go
I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go

Soft Place In My Heart Lyrics – Buddy Holly

I've got a soft place in my heart for you
And the dreams it's caused no one will ever know

I guess you know dear my love has always been true
Now there's nothing left to say or do but go

These bitter tears I've shed for you are all in vain
But if you decide you want me back again

Just come back dear and I'll no longer be so blue
I've got a soft place in my heart, my darling, for you

These bitter tears I've shed for you are all in vain
But if you decide you want me back again

Just come back dear and I'll no longer be so blue
I've got a soft place in my heart, my darling, for you

Queen Of The Ballroom Lyrics – Buddy Holly

You're the queen of the ballroom
You're in every ma-an's arms
When I look upon you
How you thrill me with your charms

You have all the men at your feet
With your lovely lovely ways
And I will love you forever and al-always

May I have, may I have this da-a-a-ance?
Now I know you're looking for fun, not romance

You're the queen of the ballroom
And I love you more and more
Queen of the ballroom
Queen of the ballroom floor

May I have, may I have this da-a-a-ance?
Now I know you're looking for fun, not romance

You're the queen of the ballroom
And I love you more and more
Queen of the ballroom
Queen of the ballroom floor

Gotta Get You Near Me Blues Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Tonight I'm so blue, I'm thinking of you
I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'
So hurry here to me, darling can't you see
I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'

Have you ever had this feeling that I'm speaking of
To be so far away from the one that you love
So hurry here to me, darling can't you see
I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'

Gonna head it on back to our country home
I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'
And when I get there dear, no more will I roam
I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'

There's a big yellow moon smiling down from above
That's no good to me without the one that I love
So hurry here to me, darling can't you see
I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'

There's a big yellow moon smiling down from above
That's no good to me without the one that I love
So hurry here to me, darling can't you see
I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'

Flower Of My Heart Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Do you think of me darlin'
While we're many miles apart
Oh please be true to me my darlin'
For you are the flower of my heart

Many nights I've sat alone
And I've worried over you
But I'll never worry dear
If your love is true

Please come back to me my darlin'
For I can't live while we're apart
Come back, come back to me my darlin'
For you are the flower of my heart

You And I Are Through Lyrics – Buddy Holly

You said that you were leaving me
You were gonna let me be
But now I find you here

I loved you, but don't you love me too?
But you said I'd never do
Now you and I are through

I loved you then my darlin' I loved you every day
But it seems my darlin' your love just fades away

You loved me but I just don't care
About the new love that I'll share
And you and I are through

You said that you were leaving me
You were gonna let me be
But now I find you here

I loved you, but don't you love me too?
But you said I'd never do
Now you and I are through

I loved you then my darlin' I loved you every day
But it seems my darlin' your love just fades away

You loved me but I just don't care
About the new love that I'll share
And you and I are through

I loved you then my darlin' I loved you every day
But it seems my darlin' your love just fades away

You loved me but I just don't care
About the new love that I'll share
And you and I are through

Shake, Rattle & Roll Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well get out of that bed, wash your face and hands
Get out of that bed, wash your face and hands
Well get in that kitchen
Make some noise with the pots and pans
I believe it to my soul you're the devil in nylon hose
I believe it to my soul you're the devil in nylon hose
For the harder I work the faster my money goes

Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you won't do right
To save your doggone soul

Shake rattle and roll

I'm like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood store
I'm like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood store
Well I can look at you tell you ain't no child no more
I believe you're doing me wrong and now I know
I believe you're doing me wrong and now I know
'Cause the harder I work the faster my money goes

Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you won't do right
To save your doggone soul

Play it again!

I went over the hill, way down underneath
I went over the hill, way down underneath
You make me roll my eyes
And then you make me grit my teeth

Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you won't do right
To save your doggone soul

I Guess I Was Just A Fool Lyrics – Buddy Holly

I thought that I could forget
Even tried to tell myself we'd never met
Though you try - you can't deny
The beating of your heart
Though you try - you can't deny
A true love when it starts
I guess that I was just a fool

I guess I'll go on loving you
Even though I know our love will never do
Well, though you try - you can't deny
The beating of your heart
Though you try - you can't deny
A true love when it starts
I guess that I was just a fool

Ummm, Oh Yeah (Dearest) Lyrics – Buddy Holly

You're The One Lyrics – Buddy Holly

A-you're the one that's a-causing my blues
You're the one I don't want to lose
You're the one that I'd always choose
You're the one that's a-meant for me

A-you're the one that I'm thinking of
You're the one that I'll always love
You're the one sent from heaven above
You're the one that's a-meant for me

Some-times you make me feel so bad
You make me cry deep in my heart
I feel like an actor in a play
Who doesn't fit the part

A-you're the one and I want you to know
You're the one that thrills-a me so
You're the one, I can't let you go
You're the one that's a-meant for me

Some-times you make me feel so bad
You make me cry deep in my heart
I feel like an actor in a play
Who doesn't fit the part

A-you're the one and I want you to know
You're the one that thrills-a me so
You're the one, I can't let you go
You're the one that's a-meant for me

Blue Suede Shoes Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well, it's one for the money,
Two for the show,
Three to get ready,
Now go, cat, go.

But don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Well, you can knock me down,
Step in my face,
Slander my name
All over the place.

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh,
Honey, lay off of my shoes

Don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

You can burn my house,
Steal my car,
Drink my liquor
From an old fruitjar.

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh,
Honey, lay off of my shoes
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Come Back Baby Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Come back baby
Baby won't you come back
Come back baby to me
Now I know why all sad hearts cry
Baby baby come to me
Well, I cried all night
Ever since you left me
Nothing has gone right
Poor lonely oh me
I say come back baby
Baby won't you come back
Come back baby to me
Now you know I love you so
Baby baby come to me

When you left me all alone
To sing the blues
I waited by the phone
To get good news
That you would come back baby
Baby won't you come back
Come back baby to me
Now you know I love you so
Baby baby come to me
Oh, come back baby to me
Hmm Hmm Hmm Hmm Hmm
Come back baby to me
Oh baby baby come to me
Come back baby to me

Rip It Up Lyrics – Buddy Holly

'Cause it's saturday nite and I just got paid
Fool about my money don't try to save
My heart says go, go
Have a time 'cause it's saturday nite
And I'm feelin' fine

I'm gonna rip it up
I'm gonna rock it up
I'm gonna shake it up
I'm gonna ball it up
I'm gonna rip it up
And ball tonite

I got a date and I won't be late
Pick her up in my '88'
Shag it on down to the union hall
When the music starts jumpin'
I'll have a ball

Along about 10 I'll be flying high
Rocking on out into the sky
I don't care if I spend my gold
'Cause tonite I'm gonna be one happy soul

Love's Made Me A Fool Of You Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Love can make a fool of you
You do anything it a-wants you to
Love can make you feel so good
When it goes like you think it should
Or it can make you cry at night
When your baby don't treat you right
When you're feelin' sad and blue
You know love's made a fool of you

You know love will makes fools of men
But you don't care, you're gonna try it again
Times goes by, it's a-passing fast
You think true love-a has come at last
But bye and bye you're gonna find
Crazy love-a has-a made you blind
When you're feelin' sad and blue
You know love's made a fool of you

Love can make you feel so good
When it goes like you think it should
Or it can make you cry at night
When your baby don't treat you right
When you're feelin' sad and blue
You know love's made a fool of you

Gone Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Now you're gone
The sun, the moon, the stars in the sky
Know the reason why-y I cry
I'm all alone, I know I'm wrong, now you're gone

Oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh what I'd give
For the lifetime I've wasted
The love that I've tasted
I know I'm wrong, I'm all alone now you're gone

Girl On My Mind Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Oh, girl on my mind
Please come back to me
I love you with all my heart
With you I want to be
I want you to be near me
Is that too much to ask?
Oh, girl on my mind
Please say you will be mine

You are the one and the only
You are mine to have and to love
No one could ask for more
You're mine to adore
Girl on my mind
Please say you will be mine

You are the one and the only
You are mine to have and to love
No one could ask for more
You're mine to adore
Girl on my mind
Please say you will be mine

Reminiscing Lyrics – Buddy Holly

I'm just sittin' here reminiscin'
Wonderin' who you've been kissin'
Baby, oh-oh baby
I've been wanderin' all around
There must be a new guy in town
You don't love me any more
I'll get over you-a-oo baby
Although my heart's still sore
Well, you know my heart's still sore

When I think of all the lies you told
To that young man my heart you've sold
You're a cheater and a mean mistreater
When I think of all the fun we had
Kind of makes me feel so sad
I'm lonely for your love
And the longest day I live
It's only you that I'll be thinkin' of
You know I'm thinkin' of
Well, it's you I'm thinkin' of
Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm-mm

Bo Diddley Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Bo Diddley'll buy baby a diamond ring
If that diamond ring don't shine
He's gonna take it to a private eye
If that private eye can't see
He better not take-a ring-a from me

Won't you come to my house a-back at home
Take-a my baby on the way from home
Love-a that boo-doo, oh where've you been
Up to your house and gone again

Bo Diddley caught a bearcat
To make a pretty baby a Sunday hat
Bo Diddley caught a nanny-goat
To make a pretty baby a Sunday coat

Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley have you heard
My pretty baby said she was a bird

Sweethearts you and I
Wait till the sun shines, Nellie

Down Lover's Lane we'll wander,
Sweethearts you and I
Wait till the sun shines, Nellie

Brown Eyed Handsome Man Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Oh arrested on charges of unemployment
He was sitting in the witness stand
The judge's wife called up the district attorney
Said you free that brown eyed man
You want your job you better free
That brown eyed man

Flying across the desert in a TWA,
I saw a woman walking across the sand
She'd been a-walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay
To meet a brown eyed handsome man
Her destination was a brown eyed handsome man

Way back in history three thousand years
In fact ever since the world began
There's been a whole lot of good women shedding tears
Over a brown eyed handsome man
A lot of trouble with a brown eyed handsome man

Well a beautiful a daughter couldn't make up her mind
Between a doctor and a lawyer man
Her mother told her, "Darlin' go out and find yourself
A brown eyed handsome man
That's what your daddy is a brown eyed handsome man"

Well the Milo de Venus was a beautiful lass
She had the world in the palm of her hand
But she lost both her arms in a wrestling match
To win a brown eyed handsome man
She fought and won herself a brown eyed handsome man

Well-a two, three the count with nobody on
He hit a high fly into the stands
A-rounding third he was a-heading for home
It was a brown eyed handsome man
That won the game it was a brown eyed handsome man

Because I Love You Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well they say what you don't know won't hurt you
And I believe that it's so
So don't tell me that you found someone new
To go thru life with you

Because I love you my darling, my dearest I love you
You're the one I want nearest, may I love you
And I will bet you love me too

Oh, I'd rather die thinking you love me
Than to go on thru life without you
And you with someone new
To go thru life with you

Well, because I love you, I love you, my darling
My dearest I love you, I love you
You're the one I want nearest, may I love you, I love you
And I will bet you love me too

Oh, I'd rather die thinking you love me
Than to go on thru life without you
And you with someone new
To go thru life with you

It's Not My Fault Lyrics – Buddy Holly

It's not my fault
If you're not falling in love with me
It's not my fault
If our future love you can't see
I should have known I could never win your hand
I know I can't hold your heart with just a wedding band

I'm just a fool in your broken chain of hearts
Each one is falling now and I can't hold the parts
I guess you want one of those on to be free
It's not my fault
If you're not falling in love with me

I'm Gonna Set My Foot Down Lyrics – Buddy Holly

We-ell, you say you're mine, but baby you don't show it
You better fly right, for before you know it
I'm a-going to set my foot right down on you
I wanna stop your struttin, baby, 'til you say you're through

I'm gonna turn you around and put you upside down
If that don't stop your runnin' around
I'm a-going to set my foot right down on you
I wanna stop your struttin', baby, 'til you say you're through

A-well, you tell me this a-and you tell me that
How come your dog bites me instead of that other cat
I'm a-gonna set my foot right down on you
Gonna stop your struttin', baby, 'til you say you're through

Well, you say you're mine, but baby you don't show it
You better fly right, 'cause before you know it
I'm a-going to set my foot right down on you
I wanna stop your struttin', baby 'til you say you're through

I wanna turn you around and put you upside down
If that don't stop your slippin' around
I'm a-going to set my foot right down on you
I wanna stop your struttin', baby, 'til you say you're through

A-well, you tell me this and then you tell me that
How come your dog bites me instead of that other cat
I'm a-gonna set my foot right down on you
I wanna stop your struttin', baby 'til you say you're through

Changing All Those Changes Lyrics – Buddy Holly

I-I-I should have reconsidered all those things I said I'd do
So now I'm changing all those changes
That I made when I left you

Sweetheart I'm changing all those changes
That I made when I left you
Because I made those changes when I thought you were untrue

A-but now you're gone I've found I'm wrong
And there's a-nothing I can do
Except to change up all those changes
That I made when I left you

I-I-I didn't stop to thi-ink, I just left without a care
And now I know I'm wrong and I can't find you anywhere
I should have reconsidered all those things I said I'd do
So now I'm changing all those changes
That I made when I left you

Rock-A-Bye Rock Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well rock-a-baby, rock-rock-rock

Well you dance in here, you dance out there
You powder your face and you comb your hair
Oh rock, well oh rock, oh rock
We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock the whole night long

Well you are gonna rock
And hold my hand so tight
I love you more and more, when you dance with all your might
Rock-rock-rock, we're gonna rock the whole night long
Well put on your shoes and hit the floor
I'm tellin' you again like I told you before
Oh rock, oh rock, oh rock, yes rock
Oh rock, let's rock, gonna rock the whole night long

"That'll Be The Day" (1958)

You Are My One Desire Lyrics – Buddy Holly

You are my one desire
You set my heart on fire
Your eyes, your lips and your smile
They make my life so worthwhile

You'll never know how much I love you
If you will be my own I will be true

You are my one desire
You set my heart on fire
You'll never know how much I love you
If you will be my own I will be true

You are my one desire
You set my heart on fire

Blue Days, Black Nights Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Blue days, black nights, blue tears keep on fallin'
For you dear, now you're gone
Blue days, black nights, My heart keeps on callin'
For you dear, and you alone
Memories of you make me sorry
I gave you reason to doubt me7
But now you're gone and I am left here all alone
With blue memories, I think of you

Blue days, black nights, I didn't realise
I would miss you, the way I do
And now somehow I know I will pay
For the times I have made you blue
Memories of you make me sorry
I gave you reason to doubt me
But now you're gone and I am left here all alone
With blue memories, I think of you

Modern Don Juan Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well, I ain't nothin' but a man in love
I ain't nothin' but a man in love
The girls they say, I'm their only one
They say I'm a modern Don Juan

Well there ain't but one thing puzzlin' me
I got a girl and she can't see
That I want only to make her mine
Well she thinks I'm just handin' her a line

Oh, I love her so, I'll never ever let her go-o-hoh

I ain't nothin' but a man in love
I ain't nothin' but a man in love
The girls they say, I'm their only one
They say I'm a modern Don Juan

Oh, I love her so, I'll never ever let her go-o-hoh

I ain't nothin' but a man in love
I ain't nothin' but a man in love
The girls they say, I'm their only one
They say I'm a modern Don Juan
Well, I ain't nothin' but a man in love

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, you give me all your lovin' and your turtle dovin'
All your hugs and kisses and your money too
Well, you know you love me baby
Until you tell me, maybe
That some day, well I'll be through

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie

He shot it at your heart
So if we ever part and I leave you
You sit and hold me and you tell me boldly
That some day, well I'll be blue

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, that'll be the day, hoo-hoo
That'll be the day, hoo-hoo

Well, I found you're a rover and it's made me blue
Like a talent scout you want some love that's new
Don't come back knocking at my heart's closed door
For I won't be home, don't call an' knock no more

Well, when you went away and left me all alone
While you played around I waited at home
Don't come back knocking at my heart's closed door
For I won't be home, don't call an' knock no more

You had all my heart, it was your very own
You weren't satisfied, now I'll go on alone
Don't come back knocking at my heart's closed door
For I won't be home, don't call an' knock no more
(Oh, let's really knock it this time boys!)

Well, pity those with hearts so empty and cold
To never know true love, a treasure to hold
Don't come back knocking at my heart's closed door
For I won't be home, don't call an' knock no more

Midnight Shift Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well if you see ol' Annie, better give her a lift
'Cause Annie's been a-workin' on the midnight shift
If Annie puts her hair up on her head
Paints them lips up bright bright red
Wears that dress that fits real tight
Starts stayin' out late till the middle of the night
Says to her friend, give her a lift
Well Annie's been a-workin' on the midnight shift
If she acts a little funny, seems a little strange
Starts spending your money for brand new things
Tells you that she wants to use the car
Never explains what she wants it for
Brother, there just ain't no ifs
'Cause Annie's been a-workin' on the midnight shift

Well early in the morning when the sun comes up
You look at ol' Annie and she looks kinda rough
You tell her, honey get out of that bed
She says, leave me alone I'm just about dead
Brother, there just ain't no ifs
'Cause Annie's been a-workin' on the midnight shift

If you got a good mama that's stayin' at home
You better enjoy, 'cause it won't last long
When you think everything's all right
She starts slippin' round in the middle of the night
Brother, there just ain't no ifs
'Cause Annie's been a-workin' on the midnight shift

"Buddy Holly" (1958)

I'm Gonna Love You Too Lyrics – Buddy Holly

You're gonna say you'll miss me
You're gonna say you'll kiss me
Yes, you're gonna say you'll love me
Cause I'm gonna love you too

I don't care what you told me
You're gonna say you'll hold me
Yes, you're gonna say you'll love me
Cause I'm gonna love you too

After all, another fella took you
But I still can't overlook you
I'm gonna do my best to hook you
After all is said & done

You're gonna say you'll miss me
You're gonna say you'll kiss me
Yes, you're gonna say you'll love me
Cause I'm gonna love you too

It's gonna happen someday
You're gonna see things my way
Yes, you're gonna say you'll love me
Cause I'm gonna love you too

You're gonna tell me sweet things
You're gonna make my heart sing
Yes, you're gonna hear those bells ring
Cause I'm gonna love you too

Look At Me Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Hey hey look at me and tell me
What's gonna happen to you
When you've broken too many people's hearts
And can't find anyone new

Say say look at me and tell me
About that twinkle in your eye
Is the twinkle in your eye meant for me
Or meant for some other guy

Look at me from now on
Know the love we share
Look at me from now on
Let me know you care

Hey hey look at me and tell me
What's gonna happen to you
When you've spoken sweet words of love to me
And I want to marry you

Listen To Me Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Listen to me and hold me tight
And you will see our love so right
Hold me darling, listen closely to me

Your eyes will see what love can do
Reveal to me your love so true
Listen to me, listen closely to me

I've told the stars you're my only love
I want to love you to tenderly
Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say
Our hearts can be nearer each day
Hold me darling, listen closely to me

[Spoken:]
Listen to me
Listen, listen
Listen to me

I've told the stars you're my only love
I want to love you to tenderly
Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say
Our hearts can be nearer each day
Hold me darling, listen closely to me

Valley Of Tears Lyrics – Buddy Holly

I want you to me take me where I belong
Where hearts have been broken - with a kiss and a song
Spend the rest of my days dear - without any cares
Everyone understands me - in the valley of tears

Soft words have been spoken - so sweet and low
But my mind is made up and I must go
Spend the rest of my days dear - without any cares
Everyone understands me - in the valley of tears

Ready Teddy Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Ready - set - go man go
I got a gal that I love so

I'm ready - ready ready Teddy
I'm ready - ready ready Teddy
I'm ready - ready ready Teddy
I'm ready ready ready to rock 'n' roll

Goin' down to the corner, pick up my sweetie pie
She's my rock 'n' roll baby, she's the apple of my eye

[chorus]

Well, the flat top cats and the dungaree dolls
Are headed for the gym to the sock hop ball
The joint is really jumpin', the cats are goin' wild
The music really sends me, I dig that crazy style

[chorus]

Gonna kick off my shoes, roll up my faded jeans
Grab my rock 'n' roll baby, pour on the steam
I shuffle to the left, I shuffle to the right
Gonna rock 'n' roll 'til the early early night

[chorus]

Everyday Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Everyday it's a-gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a rollercoaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey, a-hey-hey

Everyday it's a-gettin' faster
Everyone said, "Go ahead and ask her"
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey, a-hey-hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love's a little stronger
Come what may
Do you ever long for true love from me

Everyday it's a-gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a rollercoaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey, a-hey-hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way love's a little stronger
Come what may
Do you ever long for true love from me

Everyday it's a-gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a rollercoaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey, a-hey-hey
Love like yours will surely come my way

Mailman, Bring Me No More Blues Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Mailman, bring me no more blues
Mailman, bring me no more blues
One little letter is all I can use

She wrote me only one sad line
Told me she's no longer mine
Mr. Mailman - that'll do for some time

Cry - like never before
So hard - couldn' cry no more
Shoo shoo mailman - stay away from my door

Mailman, bring me no more blues
Mailman, bring me no more blues
One little letter is all I can use

Words Of Love Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Hold me close and tell me how you feel
Tell me love is real
Mm, mm, mm, mm

Words of love you whisper soft and true
Darling I love you
Mm, mm, mm, mm

Let me hear you say
The words I want to hear
Darling when you're near
Mm, mm, mm, mm

Words of love you whisper soft and true
Darling I love you
Mm, mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm

(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care Lyrics – Buddy Holly

You don't like crazy music
You don't like rockin' bands
You just wanna go to a movie show
And sit there holding hands
You're so square
Baby I don't care

I don't why my heart flips
I only know it does
I wonder why I love you baby
I guess it's just because
You're so square
Baby I don't care

You don't know any dance steps that I do
I only know I love you like I do, I do, I do

I don't why my heart flips
I only know it does
I wonder why I love you baby
I guess it's just because
You're so square
Baby I don't care
Baby I don't care
Baby I don't care care
Care care

You got two lips that look so fine
You got one heart I wish was mine
Love - sweet love
You've got love (genuine love)

You got two arms that you could use
To make me lose my blues
Love - sweet love
You've got love (real fine love)

You've got love - real love
You've got love - sweet love
You've got love - that is true
I want only you

You got two eyes so you can see
Your love was meant for me
Love - sweet love
You've got love (you've got love)

You've got love - real love
You've got love - sweet love
You've got me in a spin
I like the spin I'm in

It's Too Late Lyrics – Buddy Holly

It's too late - she's gone
It's too late - my baby's gone
Wish I had told her - she was my only one
But it's too late - she's gone

It's a weak man that cries
So I guess I'd best dry my eyes
Guess I will miss her more than any one
But it's too late - she's gone

She's gone - yes, she's gone
She's gone - my my baby's gone
She's gone - yes, she's gone
Where can my baby be

I wonder does she know
When she left me - it hurt me so
I need your lovin' - please don't make me weep
And tell me - it's not too late

Tell Me How Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Tell me how to keep your love
You know how I need your love
Tell me how you keep the love
Within your heart from me
Don't you know that I love you
Let me show why I'm true blue
When I know our love is true
Don't keep your love from me
If you would say to me today
The time for love is now
Could I sway your love my way
Then I say tell me how
Tell me how to keep your love
You know how I need your love
Tell me how you keep the love
Within your heart from me

If you would say to me today
The time for love is now
Could I sway your love my way
Then I say tell me how
Tell me how to keep your love
You know how I need your love
Tell me how you keep the love
Within your heart from me
Tell me how you keep the love
Within your heart from me

That'll Be The Day Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, you give me all your lovin' and your turtle dovin'
All your hugs and kisses and your money too
Well, you know you love me baby
Until you tell me, maybe
That some day, well I'll be through

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day when I die

[Instrumental Interlude]

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, when Cupid shot his dart
He shot it at your heart
So if we ever part and I leave you
You sit and hold me and you tell me boldly
That some day, well I'll be blue

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, that'll be the day, hoo-hoo
That'll be the day, hoo-hoo
That'll be the day, hoo-hoo
That'll be the day

I'm Looking For Someone To Love Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Stayin' at home, waitin' for you
Just won't get it 'cause you say we're thru
Well I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
Well if you're not here
But baby, I don't care
Because I'm lookin' for someone to love

Playin' the field all day long
Since I found out I was wronged
Well I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
Well if you're not here
But baby I don't care
'Cause I'm lookin' for someone to love

Caught myself, thinkin' of you
You can't love me and an other one too
Well I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
Well if you're not here
But baby I don't care
Because I'm lookin' for someone to love

Drunk man, street car
Foot slipped, there you are
Well I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm a-lookin' for someone to love
Well if you're not here
But baby I don't care
Because I'm a-lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love

An Empty Cup (And A Broken Date) Lyrics – Buddy Holly

One lonely night at this drive-in
And now I know what a foo-ooll I've been
She was to meet me, we had a da-ate
A date at seven I dreamed of heaven
Now it's way past eight
She just drove by with another guy
No wonder I can't he-elp but cry

To think she never cared just tears me up
Now all I have to show for love
Is this empty cup
Just like this Coke
My love is gone I've hit the bottom
Now I'm all alone

Send Me Some Lovin' Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Send me some loving, send it I pray
How can I love you when you're far away

Send me your picture, send it my dear
So I can hold it, pretend you are near

Can't you send me your kisses, I can feel their touch
I need you so badly, I miss you so much

My days are so lonely, my nights are so blue
I'm here and lonely, I'm waiting for you

Can't you send me your kisses, I can feel their touch
I miss you so badly, I need you so much

My days are so lonely, my nights are so blue
I'm here and I'm lonely, I'm waiting for you

Last Night Lyrics – Buddy Holly

Last night as I watched the stars from my window
I prayed Lord above to guide and protect you
Tho' I'm not wanted now, I still love you somehow
That is my only prayer, for you

Last night, as I gazed thru the mist in my eyes
I wanted you here to hold you so near
But silence tells me, You didn't hear my plea

I missed you so much since you left me
My heart ached apart since you left me
Tho' I'm not wanted now, I still love you somehow
That is my only prayer, for you

Rock Me My Baby lyrics - buddy holly

Put your arms around me now
And try your best to squeeze me
Love me baby - you know how
Yes, a-rock me my baby

Well, rock a-like a hockory-dock, dickory-dock
Rock-a-bye my baby
Up and down - around the clock
Well, a-rock me my baby

Plant your kisses on my lips
And make me bubble brightly
Thrill me to my fingertips
Well, a-rock me my baby

Tell me that you love me too
And say you'll never me
No one loves you like I do
So rock me my baby

It Doesn't Matter Any More lyrics - buddy holly

There you go and baby here am I
Well you left me here so I could sit and cry
Golly gee what have you done to me
Well I guess it doesn't matter anymore

Do you remember baby last September
How you held me tight each and every night
Oh baby how you drove me crazy
But I guess it doesn't matter any more

There's no use in me a-cryin'
I've done everything
And now I'm sick of trying
I've thrown away my nights
Wasted all my days over you

Now you go your way baby and I'll go mine
Now and forever 'till the end of time
And I'll find somebody new and baby
We'll say we're through
And you won't matter any more

There's no use in me a-cryin'
I've done everything
And now I'm sick of trying
I've thrown away my nights
Wasted all my days over you

Now you go your way baby and I'll go mine
Now and forever 'till the end of time
And I'll find somebody new and baby
We'll say we're through
And you won't matter any more
