Dion & Belmonts - Greatest Hits album at
Dion's, "Abraham, Martin, and John"
The Lyrics:
Anybody here see my old friend John,
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
but it seems the good they die young.
I turn around and he's gone.
It's got a Bossa-Nova beat and a major key, but this song is about the martyrs of that time when JFK, MLK, and RFK died as well as Lincoln.

Dion's, "Runaround Sue"
The Lyrics:
I should have known it from the very start,
this girl will leave me with a broken heart.
Now listen people what I'm telling you,
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue.
This Doo-Wop song has that doo-wop feel, but this song is a girl who loves and leaves her lovers.
