Elenore
The Turtles Lyrics


You got a thing about you
I just can't live without you
I really want you, Elenore, near me
Your looks intoxicate me
Even though your folks hate me
There's no one like you, Elenore, really

Elenore, gee I think you're swell
And you really do me well
You're my pride and joy et cetera
Elenore, can I take the time
To ask you to speak your mind?
Tell me that you love me better

I really think you're groovy
Let's go out to a movie
What do ya say now, Elenore, can we?
They'll turn the lights way down low
Maybe we won't watch the show
I think I love you, Elenore, love me

Elenore, gee I think you're swell
And you really do me well
You're my pride and joy, et cetera
Elenore, can I take the time
To ask you to speak your mind?
Tell me that you love me better

(One more time)

Elenore, gee I think you're swell, ah-hah
Elenore, gee I think you're swell, ah-hah-hah

The Turtles were just a great American band.

Ian Cunningham

Freddie Mercury considered them an influence.

Betty Hannon

Definitely

Stan Stan

Yeah just the one.

I’m a Beatles/Stones/Kinks nut but I have to say this is an unbeatable pure pop song. Genius

EXIT

@Ken Steiger Now I understand the "etcetera" part.

john scialfa

@Ken Steiger big hit

john scialfa

aaah...yea

Ken Steiger

@Basil Marasco Yes they wrote it because the record company wanted an upbeat "Happy Together" style song so they did this as a goof, and what happened??? Hit. Not a huge hit but still made them some money, lol...

POP! alberta

Kinks connection: Ray Davies produced their final album.
