    What word is she singing here - Lawrence Welk

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Lawrence Welk covered Judy Garland and changed the song up. I can't find the lyrics. I'm actually going to cover this song. At 2:50, Janet Lennon sings "Chasing ______?" My three guesses were "chasing waistlines", "chasing mayflies" or "chasing wayflies". It really sounds like "wayflies". I guess chasing mayflies in a field could make sense. Chasing waistlines kind of doesn't fit this rated G theme. And "biding my time" is about chasing one person. And as far as I knw, "wayflies" isn't a word. I have a feeling it might click with one of you. I'm just not getting it, and don't want to record the wrong word 😜 . Go to 2:50, and let me know

    I'm more of a traditionalist, which of course Frank would have hated.

    I'm assuming that's Bozzio, but he looks so skinny. I was a big fan of Missing Persons.

    I couldn't tell, but that looked like Bill Bruford on percussion? Surely not.

    Dude, I got the same thing happening. Dave Edmunds did a tune with Jeff Lynne. I was getting chords and lyrics figured out. Online sources are wrong or incomplete.

    The last verse last line.. Start at 2.40
    "...if its true what the epeople say, its time for the end of the play...XXXXX" Then what? No girl in coma? I'm gonna be breakin out.



    I got this far

    capo 5th
    G Em C D G

    It ended and began
    at night i feel i cant go on
    I knew it all along,
    the party 's over its been fun

    Em C D
    Em C D
    Em F# C D G



    If it's true what the people say,
    And it won't take your breath away

    To know one day soon I'm gonna be breaking out

    And how can you complain,
    a one way ticket to another game
    Your feelings never change,
    locked in slow motion and back again

    If it's true what the people say,
    And i won't take too much of your day

    It's just a one day soon I'm gonna be breaking out
    breaking out
    breaking out

    F D

    F Bd C

    D Bd C

    G or A? C D




    G Em C D G

    A feeling never show,
    it's blown to peices before it's grown
    And as you walk alone,
    remember me,I was the one

    If it's true what the people say,
    And it's time for the winners to pay

    I believe I'm gonna be breaking out
    breaking out
    breaking out


    Emotion that is chained,
    they say one day we'll bring the rain
    How can it be the same
    One day you never know my name\

    * last line please*
