I`ve really learned a lot, really learned a lot, love is like a stove, burns you when it`s hot.

I close my eyes, then I drift away, into the magic night I softly say. A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.

As you stopped to say hello, oh, you wished me well, you couldn`t tell that I`d been crying over you.

I got a woman that`s mean as she can be, sometimes I think she`s almost as mean as me.

Pretty woman, I don`t believe you, you`re not the truth. No one could look as good as you, mercy.

I may be a living legend, but that sure don`t help when I`ve got to change a flat tire.

Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight.

Love hurts, love scars, love wounds, and mars.

You wiggle to the left, you wiggle to the right, you do the Ooby Dooby with all your might.

"I was frustrated as a singer for a long time, particularly when some friendly rivalry broke out between me and a young guy in Texas named Buddy Holly, who, within a couple of months, had a couple of Number One singles and soon had stardom that reached to the Moon. I tried not to take it too hard but when Only the Lonely happened in 1960 I reckoned it was about time too. I was an avid follower of the charts. I lived by them until Only the Lonely - and then I didn`t look at them anymore."

"I may be a living legend, but that sure don`t help when I`ve got to change a flat tyre."

"There was a lot of loneliness in West Texas where I grew up. We used to say it was the center of everything, five hundred miles away from anything."

"I thought maybe in 1964 I could have been swamped by The Beatles. But it turned out the other way round and I was voted Number One vocalist in 1965."

"Whether I`m in London, Sydney or Hong Kong, it makes no difference. There is always someone who knows me. I must be one of the most unloneliest people in the world!"

"People often ask me how would I like to be remembered and I answer that I would simply like to be remembered."
