Bobby’s Girl by Marcie Blane

"Bobby's Girl" by Marcie Blane

Pop Music

The song “Bobby’s Girl” by Marcie Blane is one of the golden oldies that makes sixties pop music fun. Around the time of her high school graduation in June 1962, New York City teenager Marcia Blank was asked by a songwriter friend to record a demo of some of his compositions. Seville Records executives heard the demo discs. They didn’t care for the songs but loved the singer. They convinced Marcia to go into the studio and record “Bobby’s Girl.” They changed her name to Marcie Blane and released the record in October 1962. With its spoken introduction and the backing refrain “You’re not a kid anymore,” the record struck a chord with teenagers almost immediately, entering the charts in mid-October and soaring to the Top 10 within a month. By December it was at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold more than one million copies.

Here are the lyrics to “Bobby’s Girl” by Marcie Blane:

“You’re not a kid anymore
You’re not a kid anymore

When people ask of me
What would you like to be
Now that you’re not a kid anymore
(You’re not a kid anymore)

I know just what to say
I answer right away
There’s just one thing I’ve been wishing for

I want to be Bobby’s girl
I want to be Bobby’s girl
That’s the most important thing to me

And if I was Bobby’s girl
If I was Bobby’s girl
What a faithful thankful girl I’d be

Each night I sit at home
Hoping that he will phone
But I know Bobby has someone else

Still in my heart I pray
There soon will come the day
That I will have him all to myself

I want to be Bobby’s girl
I want to be Bobby’s girl
That’s the most important thing to me

And if I was Bobby’s girl
If I was Bobby’s girl
What a faithful thankful girl I’d be
What a faithful thankful girl I’d be”
