Sorry. Thanks for trying but neither of these is the correct song. The lyrics are as I have written them (four lines from the song). Your suggestions do not contain these lines. The song I have in mind was in the UK charts - probably not very high - around 1960-61, possibly 1962. I have tried various lyric websites without success so it will probably be a case of knowing this song personally - or not as the case may be. Do you have any other suggestions?

Regards. Doug

I can spend some more time looking, if you'd like. Now that I know you gave me the exact lyrics, it should make it easier to search.

Hi Jazz


Thanks for that. I would appreciate you looking further or checking with other experts. I also have the tune in my head as clear as day but unfortunately no way to relay that to you. I listen to many 'Gold' stations in the UK but have never heard it played since the time it was in the charts. I am thinking the title may be amongst the lyrics I have written so a check through the charts of those years may find it. Possibly it did not get above no. 40 -50 in the charts. I seem to recall it being a solo male singer - possibly from European mainland but that's a very dim recollection and a bit of a long shot.


Regards. Doug

May want to check out:

If the song was hit in the UK only, the copyright was probably registered in the UK. Don't know if they may be able to assist you with the lyrics only. May be difficult from that far back, but it might help.

Just some additional help. I've researched this for the last few days and haven't come up with anything. Even called people I know in the music industry and they didn't know.
