Help! Elusive Song Title is Driving Me Crazy Today

    Ok, so I was walking the dog and into my head popped what I think is the end of a verse of some song I CANNOT remember.  (I don't think these few lyrics are the refrain, just verse endings,  but I'm not sure.) 

    All I've got is:
    "It's no problem
    No problem at all".

    When it's sung, the vowels are extended like this:
    "It's no problem,
    Noooo problem...aaaatall.

    It has to be from the 70s or 80s.  The kind of music I listen to was/is chapin, dylan, john denver, willie nelson, foggleberg, cat stevens - stuff like that.  But this song is from a group, I'm guessing.  I have no idea of ANY of the rest of it, but I DO know the song well, once someone tells me what it IS!  It's locked away right now.  I hope someone has the key before I flitter away any more time this day thinking about it.

    Cheers and thanks  (in anticipation of someone saving me today!)

        Beth37, That's not it, but that's a very cute song!  Thanks for introducing me to that.  I didn't know the reference to the play OR song!  (I'm writing too much).
        Cheers

      Is it "It's No Problem" from the musical High Fidelity?

          Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'd never heard of it either, but it sounded good. smile

    Is it possibly, an up-tempo tune from the 70s called "I Can Help" by Billy Swan?

      janshares I LOVE that song!  The one I'm thinking of has a slower tempo and I think its the chorus singing in the background.  You've got me sitting at the computer wondering if I know how to dance to that any more smile
      My friend on facebook says to go to midomi.com and you could sing a part of the song and they search it.  (not from MY singing)

    Ohhh.h.. I HATE it when that happens.. I once had a song from the 80s stuck in my head for days and it drove me so crazy I emailed the DJ from my local radio station with a few of the lyrics and she was able to pinpoint the song for me.. I probably seemed like a crazy person. lol.

    I googled those lyrics and this is what I found:

    Bizarre Love Triangle by The New Order
    It's Nature's Way (No Problem) by Dollar
    Gypsy Train by Toto.

    You can also try http://www.lyrster.com if any of the other lyrics come to you. You can try plugging them in there and see if anything pops up. I tried it with those few lyrics, and the three mentioned above are what came of it.

    Good luck in your search! Do let us know if you find the answer, 'cause now I'm curious too. smile

      very cute story... It's like you get the feeling that it popped in your head for some really life-changing reason, right?  I don't know the songs you mentioned, so I'll try the link.

      Phyllis, that's not the song, but so glad you posted the lyrics because I went to the youtube and caught some of the words, but those are an ADORABLE lyrics when you read them and know exactly what they are.  Very cute!
