*Heywood's version was an instrumental; I've credited his version here mainly because I prefer it melodically to others I've heard. These lyrics were the ones The Diamonds used for their #34 version the same year. I had all but forgotten this song until I saw and heard it again, featured in a compilation CD being hawked on TV.
