A song of mock praise to the famously polluted Boston harbor and Charles River. Near the end of the song, in between repeated verses of "I love that dirty water', the lead singer - Larry Tamblyn sings the line: "Have you heard about the Strangler?" (A reference to the Boston Strangler, a serial murderer of thirteen women in the Boston area in the early 1960s). He immediately follows with the line: "I'm the man, I'm the man". Sung in jest - I hope!

The theme of the song is in the title. It starts from a negative (wouldn’t) goes to a positive (nice). The negative of being too young to participate in the niceties of adulthood. A positive in the direction of hopefulness. The song is sung from the male point-of-view/perspective. The singer is expressing the feelings for both himself and his girlfriend: “the more we talk about it”. Just what is the “it”? The “it” is not lustful teenage s**, nor is it an idealized love. It is a realistic view of the potentiality of a heart-based connection. This couple has spent precious hours discussing their wants, desires, dreams and the ultimate - the purpose of life. They honor each other and feel they can mature into the adult world by being together and supporting each other - “In the kind of world where we belong”. To them they realize that s** and the frequency of s** is not the most important aspect of a relationship. It is more about communication, bonding, sharing, supporting and uplifting each other. “I wish that every kiss was never ending”. A kiss to the singer is not a euphemism for s**, but symbolic of a forever euphoria that can come from a soul-level connection. These are two advanced souls/teenagers. They obviously are aware of the pitfalls of teenage marriages, couples deluding themselves thinking that once we get married everything will be perfect. That is not the case here, they are willing to wait. And it has nothing to do with religion, the devil or promises made to parents or some deity. It is their profound awareness of the riches that life has to offer - if it is approached properly. “Oh, we could be married and then we’d be happy”. That line is sung in a flippant/playful manner. They would be happy married or not. That is not their goal. They are not wanting a marriage to escape loneliness, neediness, but of blissful togetherness. A nurtured, lasting relationship is foremost. Together the two of them can forge/build the kind of world where they belong and there wouldn’t be a single thing they both couldn’t do.

Again - there are no lyrics for The Dave Clark Five - Please Tell Me Why! What is the deal with Charcotfoot? His song lyrics seem to be unavailable for whatever reason. Can you explain. I have the lyrics if you need or require them. This web site is getting stranger, and stranger.

Paul McCartney has been credited with singing the refrain "Quite Righteously" in "Mellow Yellow". In an interview, Donovan stated that only he sang the refrain. However, Paul McCartney was in the studio at the time of the song's recording and can be heard along with others cheering during the instrumental break and at the end of the song.

"I will never love You. The cost of love's too dear. But though I'll never love you. I'll stay with you one year". For the past 50+ years those lyrics have mystified me. First of all, those are words a guy does not want to hear from a girl he is living with. It is as if she is doing him a big favor. Why would she make what amounts to a business arrangement/deal, and stay with a guy she doesn't love, for one year? Why a year? Now I realize the exact amount of time is not significant, however, one year does rhyme quite nicely with "dear". The singer is very much a Daddy's girl. The father has had a heavy influence on his daughter, So much so, that she may be incapable of ever fully loving another man after her father. I knew the father said these words: "Hey, don't you love you any man. Just take want they may give you. And give but what you can". I was not aware, until I read carefully the next stanza, these are also his words: "And you can sing in the sunshine. You'll laugh everyday. You'll sing in the sunshine. Then be on your way". The "Daddy's" imprint on her is indelible, she seems incapable of a deep, mature, committed love relationship with another man. Her father tells her to find a man to take care of her, but whatever you do, do not become permanently attached to him. Obviously, the father has been wounded by love (his wife, her mother?) and he is instilling that wound/hurt onto his daughter. And he may also want her to believe that no "other" man can surpass his "love" for his daughter. She is being in a sense held hostage by her father's parental mind control. His inability to let go of her, let her grow up and live her own life. So, for the rest of her life, she may "sing and laugh in the sunshine", but it will no doubt be a life of continued loneliness and possible bleakness and darkness. And now I "know the rest of the story".
