Friday's Blast From the Past

Norman sure wrote a catchy little tune that caught my ear when I was 12. Later, I learned he was the engineer for many of the Beatles' and a couple of Pink Floyd albums. You might know him better as Hurricane Smith. Or not.

You can hear a cheap, canned, synthesized, instrumental version of O Babe, What Would You Say? here.

Have I a hope for half a chance,
To even ask if I could dance with you? You hoo!
Would you greet me or politely turn away?
Would there suddenly be sunshine on a cold and rainy day?
Oh, Babe! What would you say?

For there are you, sweet lollipop,
Here am I with such a lot to say, hey, hey!
Just to walk with you along the Milky Way.
To caress you through the night time, bring you flowers every day.....
Oh, Babe! What would you say?

Guess, though, Baby, I know,
I know I could be so in love with you!
And I know that I could make you love me too.
And if I could only hear you say you do, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh!
But anyway, what would you say?
