I Saw Linda Yesterday
Dickey Lee
Written by Dickey Lee

(Hey, hey, hey, hey-ay, hey, hey, hey, hey-ay)
Nights didn't seem so long no more,
Ain't one man like it was before --
Just when I thought I was really okay,
I saw Linda yesterday.

My heart went up, down,
Like a merry-go-round and ‘round,
Like a forest fire, Down, down,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...

Looked like I'd found peace of mind,
Looked like I was gonna make it this time --
Just when I thought I was really okay,
I saw Linda yesterday.

Oh, she smiled that same old smile,
My heart was runnin' wild --
My love for her is reelin'
As I go off the ceilin',

(Hey, hey, dumb de dodie-dodie,
Hip, hip, dumb de dodie-dodie,
Hip, hip, dumb de dodie-dodie-do,
dumb-diddly, dumb-diddly, dumb-dumb-dum...)

Go straight to a lonely guy,
Sit around and watch me cry --
People ask what's wrong, I say,
"I saw Linda yesterday."

My heart went up, down,
Like a merry-go-round and ‘round,
Like a forest fire, Down, down,
Oh, oh, oh, dumb-didly, dumb-didly, dumb-dumb-dum...

Hey, hey, dumb de dodie-dodie,
Hip, hip, dumb de dodie-dodie,
Hip, hip, dumb de dodie-dodie-do,
dumb-diddly, dumb-diddly, dumb-dum...

(Fade)
