Last night I saw the Osmonds 50th Anniversary show on PBS. They sang a song called "Long Haired Lady From Liverpool." Anyone have the music, chords, melody? It was a catchy tune. Does anyone know anything about it?

From here:

Long Haired Lover From Liverpool is a pop song by Little Jimmy Osmond.

Written by Christopher Kingsley and produced by Mike Curb and Perry Botkin Jr, Long Haired Lover from Liverpool was a UK number one single for Little Jimmy Osmond. Riding high on the popularity of The Osmonds, Jimmy (the youngest sibling) had a massive hit with the song, in the process becoming the youngest person to ever reach number one on the UK singles chart aged 9 years 8 months.

A UK number one for five weeks in December 1972, it was the Christmas number one that year, eventually selling 998,000 copies.

The song went to No. 38 in the U.S.


You can find it on YouTube here.


Your 'Lady' version is a parody of the above.

"Anyone have the music, chords, melody? It was a catchy tune."

Have you considered therapy of some kind?

Best wishes for a swift recovery

Les

Hi Les,

Thanks for the laugh. I am not a fan of the Osmonds, although some of my children were.

I have a wide taste in music and this song hit me as one that my grand kids would like to sing.

Thanks

Camper-Ted

It is a catchy tune and there's nothing particularly wrong with the lyrics.

I think it was the toe-curlingly cutesy and almost unbelievably irritating way that Little Jimmy O used to sing the song which has poisoned our minds against it.

If you get round to learning it and to singing it in a folk club, do you think that you could see your way clear to letting us know when and where?

I believe that Tiny Tim, the long haired, tulip tiptoeing, Uke player did it before little Osmond.
Quack!

There was also a British comedy actress had a hit with it I can "see" her face but can't put a name to her. Wasn't Sims was it ?? Personally I think Camper Ted is taking the piss - well done Ted.
Cheers Betsy

Here's a clip on Utube by Billy Connolly doing a parody "Short-haired Police Cadet".

Whisper it soft, but Lonnie Donegan made a version of 'Long Haired Lover from Liverpool'. Sorry to tarnish his memory!

Fortunately, few people noticed it at the time because of Little Jimmy's hit version.

With regard to version by a British comedy actress, I don't personally remember one, but it's the sort of thing that Dora Bryan might have done. She did an appalling song called "All I Want for Christmas is a Beatle" in about 1963/4. Perhaps she turned it round to be the long-haired lady from Liverpool of the thread subject, with a sunshine lover from LA.
