♫ Lucy ♫

I have no background, no trivia about tonight’s song, for I can find none.  Tonight’s song, Lucy by Lionel Richie and the Commodores is for a special friend … a Boxing Day gift.


Hey Lucy why don’t you come and settle down
I hear you’re the baddest girl this side of town
Got a little money that I wanna spend
If you’ll be my friend
For just a little while

First summer you sailed on down to New Orleans
I was a victor, you were a Cajun queen
You had many fellas with lots of style
And you drove them wild
Oh little Lucy I had to be with you

Traveled around the country
Oh and I made my way
I never once forgot what I felt that day
Now I think I’m ready to play my hand
I wanna be your man which is hard to do
Oh Lucy I’m so in love with you

I’ve been a wandering man for such a long time
Now I know just where I’m going
Oh how I need you to stand by my side
Don’t you go away
Cause I’m so in love with you

I’ve been searchin’ for you Lucy for such a long time
Now I wanna let you know what I have on my mind
You’ve been around a lonely man
A lonely man
I’ve been a lonely man
I don’t want to live my life without you
There were times when I tried to get you off my mind girl
You’re the girl of my dreams
Oh you’re the girl of my dreams
(Ahh my Lucy)
So many lonely nights I need you girl
(Ahh my Lucy)

  1. Your special friend must really appreciate you putting this record on. I can’t honestly say why this one means so much to me as the words are not exceptional, but maybe in combination with a marvelous tune and beat with the fantastic tones of Lionel’s voice I find every word sincere. The mark of a true artist.
    Cwtch mawr.

    • I was puzzled by the fact that I couldn’t find a shred of info about the origins or making of this song … very unusual. It apparently didn’t do well on the charts, which I find odd, for it’s a good song. I’m glad you liked it!
