Song Lyric Sunday: Fini – ‘I’ll Never Get Over You’

It’s not often I have to go down as far as my fourth choice to find a suitable song in response to Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday, but this is one of those times. The theme this week is looking ahead to better times (‘This too shall pass’), but I’ve already used ‘The End’, ‘It’s Over’ and ‘Over, Under, Sideways, Down’.

However, I’m glad I dredged this one from the back of my memory. Performed by the splendidly named Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, this was quite a big hit in 1963.

You’ve got to love the eye-patch.

i’ll never get over you
No, I’ll never get over you
I just can’t keep it a secret anymore
Oh, no, no

It wasn’t so long ago
That you told me you loved me so
Then you went and said goodbye
And found another guy, ay, yi, yi, yi

I know, somewhere, someday, I’ll find
One love to take your place
One girl with an angel face
But in the meantime

I’ll never get over you
No I’ll never get over you
I just can’t keep it a secret anymore
Oh, no, no

I know, somewhere, someday, I’ll find
One love to take your place
One girl with an angel face
But in the meantime

I’ll never get over you
No I’ll never get over you
I just can’t keep it a secret anymore
Oh, no, no, no
