I am once again entering Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday, a challenge to post a song that fits the prompt. Here is the prompt and the rules of the challenge:

Cool/Groovy/Hip/Nifty/Radical/Swell which is our prompt for this week. I am almost certain that this category will work, so everyone can find a song that fits the prompt. Select your song, write your post and please be patient, and wait for me to approve your pingbacks, or you can just place your link in the comments section.
Here are the “rules”:
Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not.
Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due.
Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
Ping back to this post will eventually work, as long as you are being patient, but you can also place your link in the comments if you don’t like to wait.
Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
Feel free to suggest future prompts.
Have fun and enjoy the music.

I chose the word groovy – immediately Simon and Garfunkel’s “Feeling Groovy 59th St. Bridge Song” came to mind! This is definitely a song of my generation. However, the YouTube video that had the lyrics is a different band, Harper’s Bizarre (although their cover is remarkably like the original).

It turns out Paul Simon doesn’t like this song. Here is a very different rendition with a political bent to it – Paul Simon & Stephen Colbert.

Jim, using “Wild Thing” by the Troggs was awesome! Oh, the memories…..!
