Little Darlin' Songtext

Little Darling
The Diamonds
Written by Maurice Williams, lead singer of The Gladiolas, whose version made the Top 50 on
The R&B charts. Name changed to Maurice Williams and The Zodiacs, and they charted
The classic "Stay" at # 1 in 1960.

Peaked at # 2 in 1957
The Diamonds' all-time biggest hit, featuring lead singer Dave Somerville (with Bill Reed doing the
Bass vocal narration). Technically, this could be considered one of the very first "rap" songs, since
It features hip narration over the middle break of the song. Cover version of the Gladiolas' 1957
Top 50 R&B hit. This pop version also made the Top 5 on the R&B charts.

Eye, yi-eye-eye-eye

Little darlin', oh, little darlin'
Oh-oh-oh where a-are you?
My love-a, I was wrong-a (la-la-la-la-la-la)
To-oo try to lo-ove two
A-hoopa, a-hoopa, hoopa
Kno-ow well-a that my love-a (la-la-la-la-la-la)
Wa-as just fo-or you, oh only-ee-ee-ee you

SPOKEN: My darlin', I NEED you (la-la-la-la-la-la) to call my own and NEVER do wrong. To
Hold in mine your little hand (la-la-la-la-la-la). I'll know too soon that ALL is so grand. Please,
Hold my hand

My dear-a I-I was wrong-a
To-oo try to lo-ove two
A-hoopa, a-hoopa, hoopa
Know well that my love-a (la-la-la-la-la-la)
Wa-as just for you, oh only-ee-ee-ee you
