Just an old-fashioned love song playin' on the radio
And wrapped around the music is the sound
Of someone promising they'll never go
You swear you've heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on
No need in bringin' `em back,
`Cause they're never really gone

Just an old-fashioned love song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin' down in 3-part harmony

To weave our dreams upon and listen to each evening
When the lights are low
To underscore our love affair
With tenderness and feeling that we've come to know
You swear you've heard it before
As it slowly rambles on and on and
No need in bringin' `em back,
`Cause they're never really gone

Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin' down in 3-part harmony
Just an old-fashioned love song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me
Just an old-fashioned love song
Comin' down in 3-part harmony
Just an old-fashioned love song
One I'm sure they wrote for you and me

To weave our dreams upon and listening to a song . . .

TDN почти не писали собственных песен, но приобрели репутацию мастеров кавер-версий. В частности, хитами в их исполнении стали песни Нилссона («One»), Рэнди Ньюмана («Mama Told Me Not to Come»), Лоры Ниро («Elis Coming»), Пола Уильямса («An Old Fashioned Love Song», «Out in the Country»), Расса Балларда из Argent («Liar»), Хойта Экстона («Joy to the World» и «Never Been To Spain»), Элтона Джона и Берни Топина («Lady Samantha» и «Your Song»), Джона Хайатта («Sure As Im Sittin' Here»), Лио Сэйера («The Show Must Go On»). Элтон Джон говорил позже, что началу собственного взлета к поп-звездности обязан исключительно каверу TDN на «Your Song».

Three Dog Night é uma banda estado-unidense de rock and roll bastante ativa na década de 1970, formada por Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron e Cory Wells nos vocais, Jim Greenspoon (teclado), Joe Schermie (baixo), Floyd Sneed (bateria). Surgiram no final da era do psicodelismo e faziam um rock pesado com raízes no R&B; ocuparam-se basicamente em recriar antigos sucessos, mas também lançando compositores novos, como aconteceu com a dupla Elton John e Bernie Taupin, autores da faixa "Lady Samantha", do segundo LP da banda. Todos álbuns do grupo ganharam discos de ouro e a formação permaneceu inalterada até 1973, quando Joe Schermie saiu e foi substituído por Jack Ryland. Skip Konte entrou então, como segundo tecladista, mas, pouco tempo depois, a banda acabou.

Three Dog Night war eine US-amerikanische Rockband und von 1968 bis 1975 aktiv. Die Gruppe hatte sieben Mitglieder, darunter drei Sänger und zwei Keyboarder. Die Band wurde von Brian Wilson von den Beach Boys gefördert. Die Gruppe hieß ursprünglich Redwood, benannte sich aber um, weil sie in einem Artikel gelesen hatte, dass australische Aborigines in kalten Nächten mit ihren Hunden zusammen schliefen; in besonders kalten Nächten brauchten sie drei Hunde, um sich warm zu halten. Three Dog Night hatte nicht weniger als 40 goldene Schallplatten und 21 Top-40-Hits.
