Missy Missy (Mike Leander, Chas Mills)

Missy, Missy
Born to be a dreamer
Optimistic schemer
That's what you turned out to be

Missy, Missy
Chasing after moonbeams
Reaching for the moon seems such a waste of time to me

You'll grow old searching for a pot of gold
When you're born
The things you've got are worth a lot more

Missy, Missy
How can I convince you
Tell the king or prince to come
And carry you away

Missy, Missy
What's the use of pining
For a silver lining
When your sky is never grey

You'll grow old
Searching for a pot of gold
I don't care for building castles up in the air

Missy, Missy
Break this spell you're under
You'll find something wonderful
If you come down to earth

Missy, Missy
Life is meant for living
Take this heart I'm giving
With my love
For only
For only you

    General CommentA simple lyric by Chas Mills and Mike Leander about a dreamer, to a catchy tune worthy of a higher chart placing than 43. The Ryan twins had a string of Top 50 hits but none made the top ten. This fared better on the offshore radio charts with a London Fab Forty peak of 12 and a #10 on the City Sixty.

    In the Style of (and could be interpreted as a record by) the New Vaudeville Band, this highly underrated gem is waiting to be re-discovered and lumped into a cute TV ad for something.
