The 1965 version by Freddie and the Dreamers has also been popular.

Their first top forty hit was the 1956 single “Ka-Ding-Dong,” which featured Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon on guitar. They were known for their choreography and exciting performances as well.

Here’s to a Happy New Year!!!

Here are the lyrics to “I Understand” by The G-Clefs:

I understand just how you feel
Your love for me, why not be mine
It’s over now but it was grand
I understand, I understand

If you ever change your mind
Come back to me and you will find
Me waiting there, at your command
I understand, I understand

I miss you so, please believe me when I tell you
I just can’t stand to see you go
You know

If you ever change your mind
Come back to me and you will find
Me waiting there at your command
I understand, I understand

“I understand just how you feel
Let bygones be bygones
But always remember I love you
I love you, I love you”

(We’ll sip a cup of wine, my dear, for Auld Lang Syne)
I understand
