“Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter” Performed By Herman’s Hermits (1965)

April 28, 2011


After  “I’m Telling You Now” by Freddie and the Dreamers spent two weeks in April 1965  at the top of the Billboard Top 100 chart,  “Game of Love” by Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders took over the number one spot for a week.  Give the song a listen by clicking on this link to my previous post on the song on July 11, 2008.

A third British Invasion Group knocked “Game of Love”  off of the top spot on the chart with the catchy sing-along pop confection “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter by Herman’s Hermits.

Ironically “Mrs Brown …” was never released in the UK as a single, but it remained number one in the US for three weeks straight in May 1965.

If you can’t sing along to this song right now and not miss a lyric then you obviously are not a child of The Sixties.  In case you aren’t a child of The Sixties here are the lyrics so that you can sing along. ;-)

Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter Composed by Trevor Peacock

Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter
Girls as sharp as her are somethin’ rare
But it’s sad, she doesn’t love me now
She’s made it clear enough it ain’t no good to pine

She wants to return those things I bought her
Tell her she can keep them just the same
Things have changed, she doesn’t love me now
She’s made it clear enough it ain’t no good to pine

Walkin’ about, even in a crowd, well
You’ll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

If she finds that I’ve been round to see you (round to see you)
Tell her that I’m well and feelin’ fine (feelin’ fine)
Don’t let on, don’t say she’s broke my heart
I’d go down on my knees but it’s no good to pine

Walkin’ about, even in a crowd, well
You’ll pick her out, makes a bloke feel so proud

If she finds that I’ve been round to see you (round to see you)
Tell her that I’m well and feelin’ fine (feelin’ fine)
Don’t let on, don’t say she’s broke my heart
I’d go down on my knees but it’s no good to pine

Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)
Mrs. Brown you’ve got a lovely daughter (lovely daughter)

Musically Yours,

Hi really enjoyed reading your article and was wondering How does the structure of a recital studio or concert hall help us in appreciation of the music performed?
