The Deepest Blue - Pretty Little Thing (1966)

Coming out of Pomona, California (near Los Angeles), this group was actually predominately known as The Doves for the majority of their existence. When they released their only single, they changed their name on the disc, thinking it would fit more in line with their sound. They played at clubs on the Hollywood strip with groups such as The Seeds and The Leaves. After failing to finish recording an unfinished album, the group took a couple of the completed songs and released them under the name Egyptian Candy. Both songs had been heavily influenced by Chris Darrow, a future member of the US band Kaleidoscope (not to be confused with the UK Kaleidoscope) and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

This song comes from the group’s only release under their Deepest Blue name. It was heavily influenced by Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones and features an extra guitar that was overdubbed by a session musician who was assigned to track after its recording by the studio without the band’s knowledge.

[Note: The lyrics were difficult to understand. If you think you've got them, leave a comment!]

Lyrics:

Pretty little thing
I have seen you once before
Until that day
Just come walkin’ through my door

They don’t mean to trouble
Once comin’ on my way
They don’t mean
To add it up their way of play
That’s been trouble
Since I gave you that first ring
Yeah

You’re still the greatest
And you’re my
Pretty little thing

Pretty little thing
Don’t try to fool me, I can see
Don’t even try
There’s just no need to convince me
I’m convinced
Of pretty little thing, which that I love ya

Don’t play games
I seem to need ya, pretty thing
It’s been heartache
Since that first time
You came around
Yeah

Stay by me
Pretty little thing
And don’t let me down

Pretty little thing
Oh, sit with me just so
Pretty little thing
Oh, walk with me some
Yes, I want to walk inside your love
Inside
Yeah!

Yeah!

Pretty little thing
I have seen you once before
Until that day
When you come walkin’ through my door

They don’t mean trouble
It’s just not my way
They don’t mean
To add an unfarewell friend
I’ve been trouble
Since I gave you that first ring
Yeah

You’re still the greatest
And you’re my
Pretty little thing
