Song Lyric Sunday: “Where The Boys Are”

I’m not sure this was what Jim had in mind for this prompt, but this is the one I thought of first.

“Where The Boys Are” is the title song for the 1960 movie of the same name that starred Connie Francis, Dolores Hart, Paula Prentiss, George Hamilton, Yvette Mimieux, Jim Hutton, and Frank Gorshin. It was, according to Wikipedia, “one of the first teen films to explore adolescent sexuality and the changing sexual morals and attitudes among American college youth.” It was written by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield and sung by the lovely Miss Francis. Lisa Hartman sang the song for the 1984 remake. From 1960, Connie Francis, “Where The Boys Are.”

Crinale819, who posted this on YouTube, also included the lyrics:

Where the boys are, someone waits for me
A smilin’ face, a warm embrace, two arms to hold me tenderly

Where the boys are, my true love will be
He’s walkin’ down some street in town and I know he’s lookin’ there for me

In the crowd of a million people I’ll find my valentine
And then I’ll climb to the highest steeple and tell the world he’s mine

Till he holds me I’ll wait impatiently
Where the boys are, where the boys are
Where the boys are, someone waits for me

Till he holds me I’ll wait impatiently
Where the boys are, where the boys are
Where the boys are, someone waits for me

And that’s Song Lyric Sunday for June 30, 2019.

  1. That first note is unmistakable. Connie Francis has a dreamy voice. This song comes from another time. It’s a lovely reminder of it.

  2. Another great choice, John. I loved the movie, too, and was always a big fan of both Paula Prentiiss and Yvette Mimeaux. This movie was a favorite in our household with three young girls. And of course Connie Francis and her beautiful voice were icing on the cake.
