Looking for the lyrics or who recorded it. Don't really know anything about it myself, just doing a favour for an uncle. I told him that someone on the Mudcat will know it!

I have a hunch the one you want is this song, sung by Debbie Reynolds, first on her 1975 LP "Tammy" and now available on the double-CD "Cocktail Hour". Sorry, I don't have complete lyrics. These words transcribed from a sound sample at Yahoo! Music:

JOEY

...but I remember only Joey.
Joey stole my heart from me.*

Ev'ry now and then Joey wandered by
And I wished that he would stay.
Then I'd breathe a sigh, and I wondered why...

*Note that this line exactly fits the rhythm of "Joey made me change my name." I suspect that line comes later in the song.

If that's not it, there are lots of other songs named "Joey." See AMG.

Thanks for that Jim.
There is a possibility that it might be "Joey" recorded by Betty Madigan.

I remember one from the fifties:

Jimmy kissed me in the springtime.
Bobby kissed me in the fall.
But I remember only Joey.
Joey kissed me not at all.

Jimmy brought me...
Bobby gave me...
But I remember only Joey.
Joey stole my heart from me.

Last line:
Joey made me change my name.

2nd verse

Jimmy used to sing me love songs
Bobby watched me hopefully
But I remember only Joey,
Joey stole my heart from me.

Every now and then Joey wandered by,
And I wished that he would stay'
Then I breathed a sigh as I wondered why
He never ever looked my way.
Jimmy used to send me flowers,
Bobby often did the same,
But I remember only Joey,
Joey made me change my name.

I just heard this sung by Betty Madigan on PBS, The Guy Lombardo show, and I loved it. The name of the song was 'Joey'. I hope you found it long ago. I was so impressed I had to google her.
