Find Your Turtle Dove

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: Alligator/Crocodile/Lizard/Snake/Turtle

Pigeon, Dove, Turtle Dove, Mus, Bird

I actually came across this song last week when I was thinking of songs that fitted the theme (including bird). But as I am struggling with this week’s theme, I have chosen a song that mentions a turtle dove (yes, yes, I know it’s a bird not a reptile).

I do love the sound of Gerry And The Pacemakers. This is a song called “It’s Happened To Me“, which starts with the adorable lines: “...people tell you that you can’t find love, or you’ll never find your turtle dove, don’t believe a word of what they say.”

After the way my own love story has played out….I will second that!

People tell you that you can’t find love
Or you’ll never find your turtle dove
Don’t believe a word of what they say
‘Cause when I met you, my love
I knew, I knew it had happened to me
It’s happened to me

You can tell by the way I walk
Or even tell it when I talk
And I’m so proud it’s plain to see
‘Cause when I met you, my love
I knew, I knew it had happened to me
It’s happened to me

I don’t mind telling everyone
I’m proud to say you’re my only one

So if they you that you can’t find love
Or you’ll never find your turtle dove
Don’t believe a word of what they say
‘Cause when I met you, my love
I knew, I knew it had happened to me
It’s happened to me, it’s happened to me

So if they you that you can’t find love
Or you’ll never find your turtle dove
Don’t believe a word of what they say
‘Cause when I met you, my love
I knew, I knew it had happened to me
It’s happened to me, it’s happened to me
