Golden Surprise

The Song Lyric Sunday challenge this week is on the theme of birthdays.  I was at a loss as to how to approach this in the strictest sense, but the prompt words included the word “surprise.”  So while not birthday related I went with America’s Sister Golden Hair.

The song was written by Gerry Beckley and was America’s second single to reach number one on the Billboard chart.

It is a song of separation and longing, about a distance or broken relationship.  It also holds some honesty on the cause.

Lyrics

Well I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed

That I set my sights on Monday and I got myself undressed

I ain’t ready for the altar but I do agree there’s times

When a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ’bout you, sister golden hair surprise

And I just can’t live without you, can’t you see it in my eyes?

I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find

But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?

Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?

Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ’bout you, sister golden hair surprise

And I just can’t live without you, can’t you see it in my eyes?

Now I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find

But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?

Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?

Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it

Doo wop doo wop
