Hey Girl (Them)

9 MARCH 1966


Another song from the great Northern Irish band Them and their sadly uncharting second album, 'Them Again'.

This is a slower song called ‘Hey Girl’, which really gives a taste of things to come for singer Van Morrison (who wrote this one), with a lilting, pastoral sound would become his sound, especially on albums such as Astral Weeks. He would soon be embarking on his long-lasting solo career.

Hey Girl (Them)

'Let's go walking where the boats go by
And watch them sail across the bay
Let me hold your hand in the morning fog
Little child I want to walk your dog

Hey, hey girl
Hey, hey girl
You're so young
I don't know what to do

And let's go walking up that mountain slope
And look down on the city down below
I will make a fool of you

Hey, hey girl
Hey,hey girl
You're so young
You make me lose my mind'
