“My Boyfriend’s Back” was a hit song in 1963 for The Angels, an American girl group. It was written by the song writing team of Feldman, Goldstein and Gottehrer. The recording was originally intended as a demo for The Shirelles, but ended up being released as recorded. The result was a single that spent three weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and number two on the R&B Billboard.

The song is a word of warning to a would-be suitor who, after the narrator of the song rebuffed his advances, went on to spread nasty rumours accusing the narrator’s of romantic indiscretions. Now, the narrator declares, her boyfriend is back and ready to settle the score, and she tells the rebuffed would-be suitor to watch his back.

My Boyfriends Back

written by Feldman/Goldstein/Gottehrer Released 1981 by Whisper Records  thanks to Joe for missing lyrics on Sleeping Beauty!

My Boyfriends back and you’re gonna be in trouble
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
If you see him comin’ better cut out on the double
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
Spreading lies that I was untrue
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
So look out now, cause he’s coming after you
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back

Hey he knows what you’ve been tryin’
And he knows that you’ve been lyin’
He’s been gone for such a long time
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
Now he’s back things will be fine
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
You’re gonna a be sorry you were ever born
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
Cause he’s kinda’ big and he’s awful strong
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back

Hey he know I wasn’t cheating’
Hey your gonna get a beating
What made you think he’d believe all your lies
You’re a big man now and he’ll cut you down to size

My boyfriend back he’s gonna save my reputation
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
If I wee you I’d take a permanent vacation
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
Hey la, hey la my boyfriends back
(Repeat to fade)

Sleeping Beauty

(b side) to My Boyfriends Back
Written by Clavert/Hughes released 1981

A century’s gone, since they put me on ice
For my love with the prince I paid my price.
I served in the castle in a far distant time
They locked me away to pay for my crime

Deep in the dungeon I lay in a trance
Frozen in time, with only one chance
To break to spell and set me free
A young man’s kiss was all that I need ! need, need,

Just One Kiss, Just one Touch
Give me life, but give me love
Just One Moment out of your time
Is all I need to make you mine

I open my eyes, shadows came into view
Strange, weird shapes, machines shiny and new…
Then in the light, I see him at last
The man of my dreams who broke the spell of the past.

Just One Kiss, Just one Touch
Give me life, but give me love
Just One Moment out of your time
Is all I need to make you mine

Prince: (early rap!)
Now you’ve woken in this strange, strange land,
Don’t be afraid come take my hand
This is the future, and you’ve paid your price
Together we can start a brand new life
For I am the one that you loved in the past
I cheated time and broke the spell that was cast,
All that was needed was one sweet kiss
Now you are free we can live in bliss!

Just One Kiss, Just one Touch
Give me life, but give me love
Just One Moment out of your time
Is all I need to make you mine

Just One Kiss, Just one Touch
Give me life, but give me love
Just One Moment out of your time
Is all I need to make you mine

Just One Kiss, Just one Touch
Give me life, but give me love
Just One Moment out of your time
Is all I need to make you mine.
