“Poetry in Motion” is a UK number-one hit single in 1961, recorded amongst others by Johnny Tillotson.

Johnny Tillotson – Poetry In Motion

When I see my baby
What do I see
Poetry
Poetry in motion

Poetry in motion
Walkin’ by my side
Her lovely locomotion
Keeps my eyes open wide

Poetry in motion
See her gentle sway
A wave out on the ocean
Could never move that way

I love every movement
And there’s nothing I would change
She doesn’t need improvement
She’s much too nice to rearrange

Poetry in motion
Dancing close to me
A flower of devotion
A swaying gracefully

Whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whooooooooa

Poetry in motion
See her gentle sway
A wave out on the ocean
Could never move that way

I love every movement
There’s nothing I would change
She doesn’t need improvement
She’s much too nice to rearrange

Poetry in motion
All that I adore
No number-nine love potion
Could make me love her more

Whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

It’s Not Unusual – Música

It’s Not Unusual” is a song written by Les Reed and Gordon Mills, first recorded by a then-unknown Tom Jones, after having first been offered to Sandie Shaw. Jones recorded what was intended to be a demo for Shaw, but when she heard it she was so impressed with Jones’s delivery that she declined the song and recommended that Jones release it himself. The record was the second Decca single Jones released, reaching number one in the UK Singles Chart in 1965. It was also the first hit for Jones in the US, peaking at No. 10 in May of that year.

Tom Jones – It’s Not Unusual (Original Take 1964)

Tom Jones – “It’s Not Unusual” (With Lyrics)

It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone
It’s not unusual to have fun with anyone
But when I see you hanging about with anyone
It’s not unusual to see me cry, I wanna die

It’s not unusual to go out at any time
But when I see you out and about it’s such a crime
If you should ever wanna be loved by anyone
It’s not unusual, it happens everyday

No matter what you say
You’ll find it happens all the time
Love will never do what you want it to
Why can’t this crazy love be mine

It’s not unusual to be mad with anyone
It’s not unusual to be sad with anyone
But if I ever find that you’ve changed at any time
It’s not unusual to find that I’m in love with you

Whoa-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-oh
Whoa-whoa

The Zombies – Time Of The Season (with lyrics) official

It’s the time of the season
When love runs high
In this time, give it to me easy
And let me try with pleasured hands

(To take you in the sun to) Promised lands
(To show you every one)
It’s the time of the season for loving

What’s your name? (What’s your name?)
Who’s your daddy? (Who’s your daddy?)
(He rich) Is he rich like me?
Has he taken (Has he taken)
Any time (Any time)
(To show) To show you what you need to live?

(Tell it to me slowly) Tell you what
(I really want to know)
It’s the time of the season for loving

What’s your name? (What’s your name?)
Who’s your daddy? (Who’s your daddy?)
(He rich) Is he rich like me?
Has he taken (Has he taken)
Any time (Any time)
(To show) To show you what you need to live?

(Tell it to me slowly) Tell you what
(I really want to know)
It’s the time of the season for loving

Jumpin’ Jack Flash – Música

Jumpin’ Jack Flash” is a song by English rock band the Rolling Stones, released as a single in 1968. Called “supernatural Delta blues by way of Swinging London” by Rolling Stone magazine, the song was perceived by some as the band’s return to their blues roots after the baroque pop and psychedelia heard on their preceding albums, Aftermath (1966), Between the Buttons (1967) and especially Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967). One of the group’s most popular and recognisable songs, it has featured in films and been covered by numerous performers. To date, it is the band’s most-performed song, having played it over 1,100 times in concert.

The Rolling Stones – Jumpin’ Jack Flash (Lyrics)

“Jumping Jack Flash”

I was born in a crossfire hurricane
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain

But it’s all right now, in fact it’s a gas
But it’s all right
I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas, gas, gas

I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag
I was schooled with a strap right across my back

But it’s all right now, in fact it’s a gas
But it’s all right
I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas, gas, gas

I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead
I fell down, to my feet and I saw they bled
Yeah, and I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread, yeah yeah
Yeah, I was crowned with a spike right through my head

But it’s all right now, in fact it’s a gas
But it’s all right
I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas, gas, gas

Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas
Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas
Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas
Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas
Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas
Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas
