The Guess Who? - And She's Mine (1966)

Using various band names, most notably Chad Allan & The Expressions, this Canadian group didn’t find as much success as they would have liked in their first five years of existence. In an effort to create mystery around their next release, the group’s record company took their 1965 single, a cover of the song “Shakin’ All Over,” and released it under the mysterious “Guess Who?”. The single resulted in a hit, but when the band was revealed responsible, radio DJs still continued introducing them as “The Guess Who?” and the band had to adopt the name (eventually dropping the "?").

Though they’re primarily remembered for their later works, such as “American Woman,” “These Eyes,” “No Time,” and others, this song comes from the group’s early and lesser known stage of success. In 1966 they released an album titled It’s Time. This song, released as one of three singles from the album, reached number thirty-two in the Canadian charts.

Lyrics:

Don't try to get her
Because she's mine
If you don't believe me
Just ask around and you'll find
That her clothes are all in line
Her family's well-refined
She's faithful all the time
And she's mine
She's mine
Yeah, she's all mine

Don't try to call her
Because she's mine
If you don't believe me
Just ask around and you'll find
That the stars above her shine
Her words are all in rhyme
She's happy all the time
And she's mine
She's mine
Yeah, she's all mine

There comes a time in everyone's life
When you choose somebody to love
She chose me and I chose her
And that's all we're thinking of
All we're thinking of

She's not for you
Because she's mine
If you don't believe me
Just ask around and you'll find
That her clothes are all in line
Her family's well-refined
She's faithful all the time
And she's mine
She's mine
Yeah, she's all mine

There comes a time in everyone's life
When you choose somebody to love
She chose me and I chose her
And that's all we're thinking of
All we're thinking of

She's not for you
Because she's mine
If you don't believe me
Just ask around and you'll find
That her clothes are all in line
Her family's well-refined
She's faithful all the time
And she's mine
She's mine
Yeah, she's all mine

She's all mine
She's all mine
She's all mine
