For Sunday: Paul Evans sings “Seven Little Girls”

seven little girls

Here’s a song I remember very clearly from my childhood, performed by its writer, Paul Evans. It was often on the radio; it’s what you call a “novelty hit.”



Listen to it until it gets stuck in your mind, as it’s still stuck in mine, after fifty years.



Keep your mind on your driving,

Keep your hands on the wheel;

Keep your snoopy eyes on the road ahead;

We’re having fun

Sitting in the back seat,

Kissing and a-hugging with Fred!
