My Grandfather used to say, "You knock them dead when you dress in Red, but you look like Helen Brown (or hell in Brown)". I understand this is part of a song and would love to know the rest of the lyrics if anyone knows them. Thanks.

SHE LOOKS LIKE HELEN BROWN

(Fred Fisher / Billy Rose)

Paul Specht & His Orch. - 1927

Ross Gorman & His Fire Eaters (vocal: Jimmy Kern) - 1927

Also recorded by:

Pete Daily's Chicagoans; Norie Cox & His New Orleans Stompers;

................, and how**

There he met a dame

Who took his watch and chain

Well, to the sheriff he went right away

Said "You gotta find that gal today"

When they asked him how she looked

They all heard him say

Oh, she looks like Helen Brown

Oh, she looks like Helen Brown

Rosy cheeks and eyes of blue

When she smiles, I'm tellin' you

She looks like Helen Brown

She's the hottest gal in town

When she goes by, the boys all cry

She looks like Helen Brown

She looks like Helen Brown

Yes, she looks like Helen Brown

When she's dressed in green or grey

Scotsmen through their dough away

She looks like Helen Brown

She's the hottest gal in town

Oh, she looks alright when she's dressed in white

But she looks like Helen Brown

(Oh, she looks like Helen Brown) And how

She looks like Helen Brown

When that baby starts to strut

Ev'rybody loves her, but

(She looks like Helen Brown) Yessir

She's the hottest gal in town

She knocks 'em dead dressed up in red

But she looks like Helen Brown

Your request brought tears to my eyes because it reminded me of a song my Papa (grandpa) used to sing to me when I was a little girl! What a cute song your grandpa sang to you! Here's the one mine sang:

I love you, a bushel and a peck!

A bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck!

A hug around the neck, and a barrel and a heap

A barrel and a heap, and I'm talkin' in my sleep.

About you.

About you!

About you!

My heart is leapin'!

I'm having trouble sleepin'!

'Cause I love you, a bushel and a peck

You bet your pretty neck I do!

Doodle, oodle, oodle.

Doodle, oodle, oodle.

Doodle oodle oodle oo.

I love you, a bushel and a peck

A bushel and a peck, go and beats me all to heck!

Beats me all to heck how I'll ever tend the farm

Ever tend the farm when I want to keep my

Arms - about you -

About you!

About you!

The cows and chickens

are goin' to the dickens!

'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck

You bet your pretty neck I do -

Doodle oodle oodle

Doodle oodle oodle

Doodle oodle oodle, oo!

Good-bye now!

(they repeat the "doodles" as they exit)

Check "Hi-Heeled Sneakers." That may or may not be what you're looking for; good luck.

Just last week, I asked my daughter who was singing a song on a favorite tv show, cause it was driving me nuts, I wanted to download the song. My daughter told me to type: lyrics: & as many of the lines as you can remember, into Google, then you get all these sites that have various songs & the lyrics to them. I was lucky, the 1st site had the one I wanted. They tell you who sung it & the date. I was able to find it on itunes. I'd been going crazy for 3 years about this one song, but it was great to b able to find music when this type of thing comes up.

Anybody know a song where part of the chorus goes 'Is this devotion or is it just emo-o-o-tion?' Sounds like Hip-Hop fused with dance-hall with male vocals circa 1990's. First line "Well listen dis cause it a brand new style".

What you have is very similar in style and words to Grand Funks Locomotion, which was a remake and then remade again in the late 80's. Are you sure the words you have are right, and emoootion isn't locomotion???

Locomotion

Originally performed by Little Eva in 1962, it was a # 1 top 40 hit remade in 1974 by Grand Funk Railroad, it again hit # 1

Remade again in 1988 By Kylie Minogue, the song made it to # 3 on the charts

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Everybody's doin' a brand new dance now,

(Come on baby, do the locomotion)

I know you'll get tot like it if you give it a chance now,

(Come on baby, do the locomotion)

My little baby sister can do it with ease,

It's easier than learning your A B Cs,

So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me.

You gotta swing your hips now,

Come on baby, jump up, jump back.

Oh well I think you got the knack.

Oh now that you can do it let's make a train now,

(Come on baby, do the locomotion)

Chug a chug a motion like a railroad train now,

(Come on baby, do the locomotion)

Do it nice and easy now don't lose control,

A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul,

So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me.

The locomotion

Come on, come on...the locomotion

Come on, come on...the locomotion

Come on, come on, come on, come on

Move around the floor in a locomotion,

(Come on baby, do the locomotion)

Do it holdin' hands if you get the notion.

(Come on baby, do the locomotion)

There's never been a dance that's so easy to do,

It even makes you happy when you're feelin' blue,

So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me.

You gotta swing your hips now,

Come on baby, jump up, jump back.

Oh well I think you got the knack.

Do the loc, do the loc, do the loc the locomotion

Do the loc, do the loc, do the loc the locomotion

Do it nice and easy now don't lose control,

A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul,

Come on...do the locomotion with me

I believe it's a song by Yvonne Elliman(?). Is it called "Emotion"?

Reply Was this helpful? Yes
October 2, 20080 found this helpful

Smokey Robinson had a song (older than the 90s) called, "I Second that Emotion," purely Motown at its best. One line goes, "If you feel like giving me a lifetime of devotion, I second that emotion." Anyway, it has "devotion" and "emotion" in it with male lead vocals.

The line you say that's the first in the song, I remember hearing and singing to, but cannot come up with the title of. I'm sure it will come to me later...

Locomotion? Emotion? Sheesh, some people have no idea what they're on about. I don't know who the singer is, but I believe the song is called 'Love and Emotion' or 'Love and Devotion' - I can't remember exactly.

My sister is 10 years older than I am, and when I was little she would sometimes sing me to sleep. She used to sing songs like One Tin Soldier, Puff the Magic Dragon (it was the early 70s after all) but one that has stuck in my mind is about a little boy in a shoe (I think).

All I really remember is that I used to love the song and one small line, "One sailor boy reached for his toy...". I keep thinking it may have been about Winkin' Blinkin' and Nodd, but I could be wrong. I'd love to find the title of the song and maybe even the lyrics. Thanks to all!

The line about the sailor boy isn't in it, but several groups such as the Mamas and the Papas and the Monkees did versions of Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod during the 70's.

Tahlula, Thank you so much! I don't know where I got that line from, but I was looking around and listened to the Mammas and the Pappas version and ping! That was it! The very song my sister used to sing to me. I don't know how to thank you enough! Thank you thank you thank you!!

You could always go to youtube, type in the line that you remember, and see if anything pops up. I do this often for songs that I don't know the titles to, but it sometimes takes a while to shift through all the other junk that will pop up.

There's this song I heard in church today and it goes "As a church we rise against the enemy, strength and power in your name as we stand triumphantly". Then it goes "You are the answer". If you could please help me with the name of the song I would be so happy. Thank you!

I don't remember ever hearing or reading that hymn. My suggestion would be to call the church and ask if they have a copy of that particular day's program and/or simply ask fellow church members if they know the name of the song.

When I get a song stuck in my head, I just Google the words I'm singing, usually gets me there, then I look for it on YouTube to see if that is the one.

I heard a country song on the TV Guide channel around early 2000s I believe. They showed a bit of the music video and it showed a father and his daughter shopping. I never knew the title of the song, but I remember a lot of the lyrics.

The lyrics are: " when I look down in this world I think about you and I cant help but see that everything's not what it use to be. I think about 8 years old big blues and a heart of gold." That's all I remember. Can someone please help me? I would really like to hear it again.

The name of the song is: 'I think about you' by Colin Raye. cmt.com is the site.

I tried to cut and paste the lyrics, but it wouldn't let me.

Hope you love this song as much as you used to and that it brings you joy.

I am trying to find a song that was out about 1993. It was about your roots. The man talked about listening to your family about your past, you will need it someday. A lot about just listen to your roots. That's all I can remember. If anyone can help let me know.
