I'm pretty sure this isn't it, but I'll throw it out there cos I love Jason Mraz soooo much.

On a similar numerical theme but a bit more abstruse ...

                         i x 103

       (This clue is in the title & in the lyric).


Very good RD... I loved that old song!  I love it!

Lyrics...



Is it Culture Club - Karma Chameleon?

Desert loving in your eyes all the way.
If I listened to your lies would you say
I'm a man (a man) without conviction,
I'm a man (a man) who doesn't know
how to sell (to sell) a contradiction.
You come and go, you come and go.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Didn't hear your wicked words every day
and you used to be so sweet, I heard you say
that my love (my love) was an addiction.
When we cling (we cling) our love is strong.
When you go (you go) you're gone forever.
You string along, you string along.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Every day is like survival (sur-vi-val),
you're my lover (you're my lover), not my rival.
Every day is like survival (sur-vi-val),
you're my lover (you're my lover), not my rival.

I'm a man (a man) without conviction,
I'm a man (a man) who doesn't know
how to sell (to sell) a contradiction.
You come and go, you come and go.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon
You come and go....

Yes, Karma Chameleon by Boy George et al.

Yes, Tiny Bubbles, (e.g. by Dean Martin).
I thought age of this tune would make it a bit more difficult, but no.

If it makes you feel any better, I got the artist wrong.  I was thinking Don Ho.

I don't think Don Ho's original made it across the pond, only Deano's version.
There is a dreadful version by a Scottish artist called Sydney Devine, (his singing definitely isn't divine).

I found his version on youtube.  It definitely wasn't devine.  I would've posted the link, but listening to him gave me a headache. [xx(]
