“You Showed Me” – The Watson Twins

 

You Showed Me” is in fact a song written by Jim McGuinn and Gene Clark of The Byrds in 1964.

It was recorded by The Turtles and released as a single in 1969, becoming the group’s last big hit in the U.S.

Like many of the songs that Gene Clark had a hand in writing during the 1960s, “You Showed Me” contains a mix of major and minor chords, arranged in unexpected progressions.

Lyrically, the song recounts the tale of a lover who is being tutored in the ways of love by a more experienced partner.

This song by The Turtles was one of Fiona’s favourite songs.

“Happy Together” – The Turtles

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it’s only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together

I can’t see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life
When you’re with me, baby the skies’ll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can’t see me lovin’ nobody but you
For all my life
When you’re with me, baby the skies’ll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We’re happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together (ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba)
