SONGS CONTAINING THE PHRASE "THEY SAY" IN TITLE OR LYRICS

When someone says "they say", we are never told who "they" are. Many songs use this phrase. It'll probably mean combing through the thousands of songs in our memory banks. Might be useful to include the portion of the lyric containing the phrase "they say".

 

For example:

 

Young Love: Sonny James (They say for every boy and girl...)

 

I Got You Babe: Sonny & Cher (They say we're young and we don't know...)

Tennessee - Carl Perkins

 

"They make bombs they say, that can blow up our world, dear
Well a country boy like me, I will agree
But if all you folks out there will remember
They made the first atomic bomb in Tennessee

Let's give old Tennessee credit for music
As they play it up in Nashville everyday
Let's give old Tennessee credit for music
As they play it in that old hillbilly way"
