Yeh Yeh
Georgie Fame

Every evening, when all my days work is through
I call my baby, and ask her what shall we do
I mention movies, but she don't seem to dig that
And then she ask me, why don't I come to her flat
And have some supper and let the evening pass by
By playing records, beside a groovy hi-fi
I say yeah yeah that's what I say, I say yeah yeah

My baby loves me, she gets me feeling so fine
And when she loves me, she let's me know that she's mine
And when she kisses, I feel the fire get hot
Se never misses, she gives me all that she's got
And when she ask me, if everything is OK
I've got my answer, the only thing I can say, I say Yeah yeah
That's what I say, I say yeah yeah

We'll play a melody and turn the lights down low
So that no-one can see
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
And there'll be no one else alive in all the world 'cept you and me
Yea, yea, yea, yea, yea
Yea, yea, yea, yea
Pretty baby I never knew such a thrill
Just thought I'd tell you, because I'm trembling still
But pretty baby, I want you all for my own
I think I'm ready to leave those others alone
No need to ask me if everything is OK
I got my answer, the only thing I can say
I say yeah yeah, that's what I say, I say yeah yeah
That's what I say, yeah yeah

We'll play a melody and turn the lights down low
So that no-one can see
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
We gotta do that, we gotta do that
And there'll be no one else alive in all the world 'cept you and me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah
Yea, yea, yea, yea
Pretty baby I never knew such a thrill
Just thought I'd tell you, because I'm trembling still
But pretty baby, I want you all for my own
I think I'm ready to leave those others alone
No need to ask me if everything is OK
I got my answer, the only thing I can say
I say yeah yeah, that's what I say, I say yeah yeah
That's what I say, I say yeah yeah
That's what I say, I say yeah yeah

Georgie Fame    (26 June 1943)
ne Clive Powell

Blending R&B and Jazz with art, mixing it all up with Ska and the Blues and swinging on the keyboard is what thrills his audience, what sets their feet a tapping, and is the very thing that has earned this Georgie all his Fame!

Georgie Fame is a British (born in Leigh, Lancashire) rhythm and blues and jazz singer and a keyboard artist. By age 16, he was already playing in a band that was a tremendous success in rhthm and blues called the Blue Flames, which later was billed as "Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames".

It was his swinging and amazing blending of American rhythm and blues with jazz that made Georgie Fame stand out and earned him a large following in the UK where he racked up three #1 hits during the 60's.  He also plays the piano and the organ and peppered his early repertoire with Jamaican ska and blue beat tunes which helped to popularize the genres in his native land. "...During his later years, he was one of the few jazz singers of any stripe to take an interest in the vanishing art of vocalese, and earned much general respect from jazz critics on both sides of the Atlantic." 1

"Fame's greatest success was "The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde" in 1968, which was a number one hit in the United Kingdom, and No.7 in the United States; Fame also had UK number one hits with "Yeh Yeh" (1965) and "Get Away" (1966). Although he enjoyed regular chart success with singles in the late 1960s, it was a peculiar quirk of chart statistics that his only three Top 10 hits all made number one." 2
