CHARLIE WASN'T THERE (Paul Vance / Lee Pockris) as recorded by Barbara Evans & backing group 1961 I used to go with a boy named Charles and I loved him, He took me to the movies and I loved him. But along came a girl, a very pretty girl with long blond hair, And one two three, Charlie wasn't there! So off she went to the beauty shop To have her hair done yellow. She didn't care how much it cost, She had to get back her fellow! Well, Charles came back when he saw my hair and I loved him, He took me to a record hop and I loved him. But along came a girl, a very pretty girl with bright red hair, And one two three, Charlie wasn't there! So off she went to the beauty shop And this is what she said, "I don't care how much it costs, You gotta make it red!" Charlie, oh Charlie, For goodness sake, She's gotta bleach her hair again, But how much can it take? Well, Charles came back when he saw my hair and I loved him, He took me for a soda and I loved him. But along came a boy, a very handsome boy with the wavy hair, And one two three, one two three, One two three, ha-ha, I wasn't there! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - July 2017)
