Lyrics to "Elenore" song by The Turtles: You've got a thing about you I just can't live without you I really want you, Elenore, near me Your. Elenore, can I take the time To ask you to speak your mind? Tell me that you love me better. I really think you're groovy Let's go out to a movie What do you say now, Elenore, can we? They'll turn the lights way down low And maybe we won't watch the show I think I love you, Elenore, love me. Elenore, gee, I think you're swell And you really do me well You're my pride and joy, et cetera.
