Lady Godiva (the song)

  The song "Lady Godiva" was performed by the British duo Peter and Gordon. It was released it Britain on September 9, 1966 and it was also released in the month of September of '66 in the U.S."Lady Godiva is about a woman who becomes involved in a burlesque show. As part of her routine this Lady Godiva, like the one of Covenetry, England, 'has long blonde hair, that hangs around her knees' 



Seventeen, a beauty queen,
She made a ride that caused a scene,
In the Town

Her long blonde hair,
Hangin' down around her knees
All the cats who dig striptease
Prayin' for a little breeze
 Her long blonde hair
Fallin' down around her arms
Hidin' all the lady's charms
Lady Godiva

She found fame and made her name,
A Hollywood director came to town
And said to her
"How'd you like to be a star?"
"You're a girl that could go far"
" 'specially dressed the way you are"
She smiled at him
Gave her pretty head a shake
That was Lady G's mistake
Lady Godiva

He directs certificate 'X'
And people are now craning their necks
To see her
'Cause she's a star
One that everybody knows
Finished with the striptease shows
Now she can't afford her clothes.

Her long blonde hair
Lyin' on the barber's floor
Doesn't need it anymore
Lady Godiva
