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...)
