The Turtles - gee I think you're swell. And you really do me well. You're my pride and joy, et cetera.

I was playing that song while my daughter and her friends walked into the room when that line came up "Elenore, gee I think you're swell". They rolled their eyes and giggled.

Re: The Lovin' Spoonful versus the Turtles!

Spoonful.....though I do like The Turtles also ;'Flo and Eddie' never took themselves seriously and if you look at the lyrics to many of theor songs it's obvious.
Summer In The City imho is better than anything the Turtles came up with....though The Turtles did have some solid pop songs.
My favorite track by Flo and Eddie was Keep It Warm.
