There's another Georgy deep inside.
Bring out all the love you hide,
And, oh, what a change there'll be!
The world will see
A new Georgy Girl!

Georgy Girl was the first single (45 rpm) I ever bought. I was five years old and saved my allowance up. I bought this instead of candy.

Today, it IS "candy" for me. I absolutely love this song.

Jim Dale told me a great story about Georgy Girl when I interviewed him during Threepenny Opera.

He also has the same story on his website and it goes like this:

A few years ago I walked into an old junk shop and found my first big hit song "Be My Girl" in a collection of ancient 78rpm pop records.
Me: "Wow, look at this, how much is it?"
Owner: "Four pence, same as all the others" (which is about ten cents in America)
Me: "Four pence? For a hit record by Jim Dale?"
Owner: "Who?"
Me: "Jim Dale, it's a collectors item this is. You can't sell it for four pence. It's worth a good four Pounds of anybody's money."
Owner: "OK, four Pounds then."
Me: "That's more like it." (Handing him four crisp one pound notes in exchange for his moth eaten old record).

Motto: "Never let yourself be sold cheap."

Great song! The sixties looked like so much fun.
