DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Add: Vikki Dougan
From: chico
Date: 15 May 05 - 09:13 PM

Vikki turn your back on me
A               E7
Come on darlin' just for me
         D                E
'Cause there is something so appealin',
          D       E
That your eyes are not revealin'!
    A    D            E7   A
Oh, Miss Dougan, you're for me!
    D      A       D       A
Oh, oh, oh oh, Oh, Oh, Oh oh.

Other girls who approach me,
      A|                      (D A)
Are beautiful, gorgeous and gay!
    D|                              (A D)
But you're so gosh darn more inviting
Going the other way!

Vikki baby you move me,
In those far-out clothes!
But don't it get chilly flyin' home at night
When that cold cold tail-wind blows?

Vikki baby, you rock me,
Without you I'm bereft!
I'm hynotized by those crazy eyes,
And that callipygian cleft

[Limeliters song dedicated to 'back to the camera' pinup model
Vikki Dougan, who specialized in very low slung dresses. (See
Photograph: Vikki Dougan's appearance in this newswire photo in
1957 was the inspiration for this hilarious song about her. Vikki
reportedly said, "I'm not busty, so what's a girl to do?") Lyrics attributed to 1950's folksinger Malvina Reynolds ALT Air--'Banua']

This was on the Slightly Fabulous Limeliters, which came out on the RCA Victor label in 1961. It's on a Collectors' Choice two-fer CD with the Limeliters Sing Out! LP. The CD spells the song tile "Vicki Dougan," attributed to Gottlieb/Reynolds. The LP jacket spells it "Vikki Dougan," and does not give songwriter attribution. confirms that "Vikki Dougan" was written by Louis E. Gottlieb and Malvina Reynolds. This Google Search will provide the necessary graphics....

Was Gottlieb one of the Limeliters? Whichever of them gave a spoken intro to the song on the record seemed to be taking credit
for it.

I remember the newspaper photo well. Wow!   (Or it was WOW! at the time, but today it'd be sort of routine.)

Her last name, as I recall, was actually Duggan, not Dougan or Dugan.

The late, great Lou Gottlieb was one of the original Limeliters. Before that he arranged songs for the Kingston Trio. He had a Ph.D. in musicology. Later, Gottlieb left the Limeliters and moved to his Morningstar Ranch, to which he invited the Diggers. There was an infamous bust there. Gottlieb was also featured as Peter Sellars's guru in the film, "I Love You Alice B. Toklas." He and Malvina Reynolds collaborated on many songs.

Will see, on the 'morrow, if I can find the intro Gottlieb gave for the song; pretty funny in itself. I've got it somewhere on an old tape stolen off someone's "big black CD" long long ago.

I remember the name being spelled "Duggan" on the LP album cover.   I could be wrong, but it caught my attention because of the unusual spelling. Pretty sure Vikki's name was either "Dugan" or "Duggan" and that she used both spellings professionally.

According to <"">this site this actress/model's name is found online with all of these spellings in connection with her various movie and TV roles:
Vicki Duggan
Vikki Dugan
Vikki Dougan
Vicki Dugan
Vicki Dougan

That site also gives this additional verse to the song:

Vikki baby, we're older,
My get up and go is gone,
But when I see you walking down the street
Them buns still turn me on!

DK if that's the "last verse" that Gottlieb added to the song he and Malvina Reynolds originally wrote.
