Put Your Head on my Shoulder - Paul Anka (1959)

Put Your Head On My Shoulder
By Paul Anka
Well....who knew?  I had no idea Paul Anka wrote this beautiful, warm and fuzzy love song.
It turns out he also wrote Puppy Love and My Way and many other super great songs...
And did you know that he wrote Puppy Love to tell he and Annettes story?  They were in love when Annette was 17 and Paul was 18 and Annette's parents thought she was too young to be in 'real love' and they

told Annette and Paul that they couldn't date...
Paul and Annette were devastated...and went their separate ways....WHAT???
I'll tell ya what would have happened at MY house when I was 17 if I was madly in love with a fine rascal...which I was by age 17... and MY parents told me we were too young....I've had said "Well it's been nice you guys...thanks for
everything...tootle dee doo!"
And "I" was a preachers kid   :-)
I wonder how old Annette's parents were when THEY got married?  Most folks back in those days married at about age FOURTEEN...instead of EIGHTEEN...AND back in those days...love just had a deeper meaning than it did in Annette's parents day I think...and even now...
I don't know....there was just something special in the air we were all breathing back in the 1960's...or the water we was drinking or SOMETHING...because it just was the decade for forever after passionate love... if there ever was a decade for that....
This is an absolutely beautiful....warm and fuzzy song...to start our weekend!


Thanks For The Memories:  Songs Of yesteryear
 will be posted before the blog some, many or most mornings.
I can't get more honest than that.

But here's the kicker...no matter what I talk about in my blog each morning...By posting a daily love song from yesteryear and talking a little about it...there will always be a little love coming daily from me...to you.

                                     The very best love stories just have no ending
                       and I'm just so very blessed to be living one of those love stories.

                             BE THE CHANGE and LIVE AND LOVE WITH PASSION



Put your head on my shoulder
Hold me in your arms, baby
Squeeze me oh so tight
Show me that you love me too

Put your lips next to mine, dear
Won't you kiss me once, baby
Just a kiss goodnight, may be
You and I will fall in love

People say that love's a game
A game you just can't win
If there's a way
I'll find it somebody
And then this fool with rush in

Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Words I want to hear
Tell me, tell me that you love me too.

Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Words I want to hear, baby
Put your head on my shoulder
