The Clefs of Lavender Hill - Stop! Get a Ticket (1966)

In 1966, siblings Joseph and Loraine Ximenes created a group with ex-members of The Twilights to release a single “First Tell Me Why”. Going by their new stage names, Travis and Coventry Fairchild, the group found success in Miami, Florida (and later, to a small degree, nationally) when the B-side of their single caught on. It was the bands only claim to fame before shelving a full-length album and disbanding in 1968.

This song was the B-side to their single “First Tell Me Why”.

Lyrics:

You know your baby’s gonna leave you
If you don't treat her better
She's gonna hop that train and say “bye bye”
You gotta run and tell the conductor

You gotta stop; get a ticket
You gotta stop; get a ticket
You gotta stop; get a ticket
Catch her

You know your baby used to love you
‘Cause you wouldn't have no other
But she ran away and said “bye bye”
And now she won't be your lover

You gotta stop; get a ticket
You gotta stop; get a ticket
You gotta stop; get a ticket
Catch her

You gotta stop; get a ticket
You gotta stop; get a ticket
You gotta stop; get a ticket
Catch her

You know your baby’s gonna leave you
If you don't treat her better
She's gonna hop that train and say “bye bye”
You gotta run and tell the conductor

You gotta stop; get a ticket
You gotta stop; get a ticket
You gotta stop; get a ticket
Catch her

Stop, get a ticket
Stop, get a ticket
Stop, get a ticket
Stop, get a ticket
Stop, get a ticket
Stop…
