You meet a boy
Bright sparkling eyes
He seems kinda nice
Perhaps a little shy
He'll walk you home
Kiss you on the doorstep
Next night he'll hold your hand
And...

Don't let him touch you
Don't let him touch you
He's playing the game of love
And he is trying to see how much you'll
Let him have and if he has you
He will run away and leave you
If he has you, he will leave you
Don't let him touch you

You talk and talk
How it's hard for guys.
He'll be good to you,
Hold you when you cry.
He is the only one
Now your love life's begun
He'll hold you close to him
And...

Don't let him touch you
Don't let him touch you
He's playing the game of love
And he is trying to see how much you'll
Let him have and if he has you
He will run away and leave you
If he has you, he will leave you
Don't let him touch you

Don't let him touch you
Don't let him touch you
He's playing the game of love
And he is trying to see how much you'll
Let him have and if he has you
He will run away and leave you
If he has you, he will leave you
Don't let him touch you

He says he's going to quit.
You don't know what to do that night.
You love him so
You think perhaps you might.
Your heart beats fast
Is the moment here at last?
He'll hold your body tight
And...


Don't let him touch you
Don't let him touch you
He's playing the game of love
And he is trying to see how much you'll
Let him have and if he has you
He will run away and leave you
If he has you, he will leave you
Don't let him touch you

Don't let him touch you
Don't let him touch you
He's playing the game of love
And he is trying to see how much you'll
Let him have and if he has you
He will run away and leave you
If he has you, he will leave you
Don't let him touch you

    General CommentA largely forgotten song from early 1972 when the Angelettes reached 35 in the UK with this Decca single penned and produced by Jonathan King with the Johnny Arthey Orchestra. There are so many curious aspects to this release.

    Played by Radio Northsesa International, Luxembourg and Radio One, the Angelettes sought permission from school to appear on Top of the Pops. Inexplicably, the sound failed during the performance coinciding with a rethink by the BBC as to whether the song should be played at all. It was banned and press publicity followed, as did a Luxembourg hourly Powerplay.

    It has a unique cello introduction and a deep bass presence throughout. The chorus is catchy, but based on only two notes and constantly interrupted by the verse sung much slower. The lyric appears to issue sound fatherly advice about the consequences of virginity loss. The sentiment was frowned upon in some music circles but even before 1972 would be typical television programme humour.

    With a part-original line up, the reformed Angelettes still perform and recorded other excellent singles with limited success. The single appears on the Jonathan King 8 CD set King of Hits and on the soundtrack of Me Me Me where it is mimed and tastefully interpreted by The Sirens.
