My Boyfriend’s Back

Sugar, Sugar- The Archies

Sugar, ah honey honey

You are my candy girl- Most songs from the 50’s and 60’s talk about how only girls can be sweet.

And you’ve got me wanting you

Honey, ah sugar sugar

You are my candy girl- In a lot of songs the boy refers to his girlfriend as candy.  

And you’ve got me wanting you

 

I just can’t believe the loveliness of loving you

(I just can’t believe it’s true)

I just can’t believe the one to love this feeling to

(I just can’t believe it’s true)

 

Ah sugar, ah honey honey

You are my candy girl- If the gender roles were switched that would be weird because I can’t imagine a girl singing this to her boyfriend. 

And you’ve got me wanting you

Ah honey, ah sugar sugar

You are my candy girl

And you’ve got me wanting you

 

When I kissed you, girl, I knew how sweet a kiss could be

(I know how sweet a kiss can be)

Like the summer sunshine pour your sweetness over me

(Pour your sweetness over me)

 

Sugar, pour a little sugar on it honey

Pour a little sugar on it baby

I’m gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah- Pretty much saying that the girls life was boring before she was with her boyfriend. 

Pour a little sugar on it oh yeah

Pour a little sugar on it honey

Pour a little sugar on it baby

I’m gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah

Pour a little sugar on it honey

 

Ah sugar, ah honey honey

You are my candy girl

And you’ve got me wanting you

Oh honey, honey, sugar sugar…

You are my candy girl…

 

 

 

  Young love- Sonny James

They say for every boy and girl

There’s just one love in this whole world

And I know I’ve found mine

The heavenly touch of your embrace

Tells me no one could take your place

Ever in my heart

Young love (young love), first love (first love)

Filled with true devotion

Young love (young love), our love (our love)

We share with deep emotion

Just one kiss from your sweet lips- Every song refers to a girl being sweet.

Will tell me that your love is real

And I can feel that it’s true

We will vow to one another

There will never be another- He never wants to break up with his girlfriend because he refers to their relationship like it was a young love.

Love for you or for me

Young love (young love), first love (first love)

Filled with true devotion

Young love (young love), our love (first love)- Sometimes when young people fall in love they think that they will be with their first love forever and that is a stereotype. 

We share with deep emotion

 

 

 

 Be My Baby- The Ronettes

The night we met I knew I needed you so

And if I had the chance I’d never let you go

So won’t you say you love me

I’ll make you so proud of me

We’ll make ’em turn their heads every place we go

 

So won’t you, please

(Be my, be my baby) Be my little baby

(My one and only baby) Say you’ll be my darlin’-This song started the baby in songs trend because it was in Dirty Dancing and in the 60’s Dirty Dancing was a very popular movie.  

(Be my, be my baby) Be my baby now

Wha-oh-oh-oh

 

I’ll make you happy, baby, just wait and see

For every kiss you give me, I’ll give you three

Oh, since the day I saw you

I have been waiting for you

You know I will adore you ’til eternity

 

So won’t you, please

(Be my, be my baby) Be my little baby- Stereotype that every one calls their significant other baby. And the word baby is still used today in current music.

(My one and only baby) Say you’ll be my darlin’

(Be my, be my baby) Be my baby now

Wha-oh-oh-oh-oh

 

So come on and please

(Be my, be my baby) Be my little baby

(My one and only baby) Say you’ll be my darlin’

(Be my, be my baby) Be my baby now- This song is about a boy being called baby in this era you would expect that the girl is being called baby and not the boy.

Wha-oh-oh-oh

 

(Be my, be my baby) Be my little baby

(My one and only baby) Oh

(Be my, be my baby) Oh

Wha-oh-oh-oh-oh

 

(Be my, be my baby) Oh

(My one and only baby) Oh

(Be my, be my baby) Be my baby now- Why do people like to use the word baby in love songs?

Wha-oh-oh-oh

 

All Shook Up- Elvis Presley

A well I bless my soul

What’s wrong with me?

I’m itching like a man on a fuzzy tree

My friends say I’m actin’ wild as a bug-Stereotype that when you are in love you will become crazy.

I’m in love

I’m all shook up

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

 

My hands are shaky and my knees are weak

I can’t seem to stand on my own two feet

Who do you thank when you have such luck?

I’m in love

I’m all shook up

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

 

Please don’t ask me what’s on my mind

I’m a little mixed up, but I’m feelin’ fine

When I’m near that girl that I love best

My heart beats so it scares me to death!

 

She touched my hand what a chill I got

Her lips are like a volcano that’s hot

 I’m proud to say she’s my buttercup- Artists from the 50s and 60s has weird nicknames for their significant other.

I’m in love

I’m all shook up

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

 

My tongue get tied when I try to speak

My insides shake like a leaf on a tree

There’s only one cure for this body of mine

That’s to have the girl that I love so fine!

 She touched my hand what a chill I got- He gets a chill when she touches his hand, but when they kiss it is like a volcano.   

Her lips are like a volcano that’s hot

I’m proud to say she’s my buttercup- A girl always had a strange nickname in the 50s and 60s songs, but if the roles were reversed and the girl calls the boy a strange nickname it would not end well.  

I’m in love

I’m all shook up

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

I’m all shook up
