songs to learn and sing #34

His 1967 recording of “Music to Watch Girls By” became a huge surprise UK hit to a new young TV audience, in 1999, when it reached #9 after featuring in new TV ads for the Fiat Punto–and later for Diet Pepsi–beating the original peak of #33 in 1967. A new generation was reminded of Williams’ recordings and a sell-out UK tour followed the success of the single, and he was given the nickname “The Emperor of Easy” in the UK.

The boys watch the girls while the girls watch the boys who watch the girls go by
Eye to eye, they solemnly convene to make the scene
Which is the name of the game, watch a guy watch a dame on any street in town
Up and down and over and across, romance is boss

Guys talk “girl talk”, it happens everywhere
Eyes watch girls walk with tender lovin’ care

It’s keepin’ track of the fact watching them watching back
That makes the world go ‘round
“What’s that sound?” each time you hear a loud collective sigh
They’re making music to watch girls by

Guys talk “girl talk”, it happens everywhere
Eyes watch girls walk with tender lovin’ care

It’s keepin’ track of the fact watching them watching back
That makes the world go ‘round
“What’s that sound?” each time you hear a loud collective sigh
They’re making music to watch girls by

The boys watch the girls while the girls watch the boys who watch the girls go by
Eye to eye, they solemnly convene to make the scene
