Lovely Loretta
Recorded by The Others on Pye

La, la, la . . . (16 bars)

Lovely Loretta, I'm going to get her
Just as soon as she passes my way,
I'm gonna say, "Come up with me
And together we'll stay"
(Hey!)

Lovely Loretta don't you feel better
Now that the people have all gone away?
We're gonna stay, together we'll watch,
Tomorrow, even today. (Hey!)

You're getting bolder, head on my shoulder,
I wanted to dance and you just shook your head,
Here's what you said: "You can sit here
Till my drinks are all dead"


Now I made up my mind, you're gonna be mine,
And here's what I'm going to say:

Loretta, Loretta now isn't it better,
I'm glad I found you, isn't it right?
Loretta, Loretta now isn't it better,
I'm glad I found you, don't you feel better, better?


La, la, la . . . (16 bars)

With the morning sun came this feeling of hunger,
Loretta's in the kitchen fixing something to eat,
Isn't she sweet? Blushing so softly
Every time our eyes meet; (Hey!)

Smiling so sweetly, she left so discreetly,
Her coat on her arm and her bag in her hand
Wasn't she grand? She's gone away
Just like a shifting of sands

Now I made up my mind, you're gonna be mine,
And here's what I'm going to say:

Loretta, Loretta now isn't it better,
I'm glad I found you, isn't it right?
Loretta, Loretta now isn't it better,
I'm glad I found you, don't you feel better, better?


La, la, la . . . (fade)
