Norman's postings remind me of a funny family story. My sister-in-law is a wonderful cook but tends to bash and bang around the kitchen and puntuate her rummaging with obscenities during the whole cooking process. One night, after the air turned blue with her swearing from the kitchen, my brother politely remarked "Three 'shits', one 'goddamn' and two 'fucks'...dinner must almost be ready.

Okay, my mistake. The Giant Rabbit was named "Harvey" and he was an imaginary friend of a drunk played by Jimmy Stewart in some old movie.

I do believe that "Harvey the Giant Rabbit" was originally a stage play, maybe even from a novel before that. Many movies of that period has such a geneses.

I think Norman was released in Britain by Carol Dene, and was the follow up (or possibly precursor) to the immortal 'James, Hold The Ladder Steady'

The chorus was:

Norman, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh,
Norman,(ditto),
Norman,
Norman my love.

So there were more 'oohs' than others may first have thought.

Time for my lie down....

Gee Brucie, found it right away on something called elyrics4u.com

Another great hit by John D. Loudermilk of Tobacco Road fame and cousin of the Louvin Bros.

Norman

Artist: Sue Thompson (peak Billboard position # 3 in 1961)
Words and Music By John D.Loudermilk

Norman , ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Norman, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Norman, Norman, my love

Jimmy called me on the phone but I was gone, not at home
Cuz I was out parked all alone with darlin?Norman
Bill invited me to a show but I said no, cannot go
There's a dress that I've got to sew and wear for Norman

Norman holds me close to him, Norman kisses me and then
Norman knows my heart belongs to him and him and only him, oh

Norman, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ohh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Norman, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ohh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Norman, Norman, my love

Joey asked me for a date, he wanted to take me out to skate
But I told Joey he would have to make 'rangements with Norman

Norman is my only love, Norman's all I'm thinking of
Norman gives me all his lovin? kissin? huggin? lovey-dovin?

Norman crossed the English Channel
Sung as though she chewed on flannel
Such a grim assault on man'll
Surely make him wince

But alas there was no stopping
All that oohwah- and doo-wopping
Norman's now the charts a-topping
SLightly worse than Prince.

To give credit where it's due (and to prove that I have been reading the messages in this thread) quite early on Tam the Bam asked:
'Who Is Norman?'

and

Hrothgar replied:

'Sue Thompson's boyfriend'

- didn't register at the time, but it sure does now.

An interesting little trip down a musical byway of yesteryear.
