About Georgy Porgy

"Georgy Porgy" () is a song written by David Paich, released on Toto's self-titled debut album in 1978. It was released as a single and charted on the Billboard Hot 100 (number 48) as well as on both the R&B (number 18) and the Dance (number 80) charts. The lead vocals are performed by guitarist Steve Lukather. Cheryl Lynn provided the female backing vocal, singing an adaptation from a nursery rhyme Georgie Porgie. The song is still performed on tour. It is adapted with improvisational solos on guitar and keyboards. In a 1988 interview with Modern Drummer, Jeff Porcaro discussed developing the groove for "Georgy Porgy": "...it's imitating Paul Humphrey heavily; it's imitating Earl Palmer very heavily. When it comes to that groove, my biggest influences were Paul Humphrey, Ed Greene, Earl Palmer, and the godfather of that 16th-note groove, James Gadson. That "Georgy Porgy" groove I owe to them."

It's not your situation, I just need contemplation over you
I'm not so systematic, it's just that I'm an addict for your love

Not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told you
You're my only girl
I'm not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told you
You're my only world

Just think how long I've known you, it's long for me to own you, lock and key
It's really not confusing, I'm just the young illusion, can't you see

I'm not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told you
You're my only girl
I'm not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told you
You're my only world

Georgy Porgy, pudding pie, kissed the girls and made them cry
Kissed the girls and made them cry, kissed the girls and made them cry

It's not your situation, I just need contemplation over you
I'm not so systematic, it's just that I'm an addict for your love

Not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told you
You're my only girl
I'm not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told you
You're my only world

Georgy Porgy, pudding pie, kissed the girls and made them cry
Kissed the girls and made them cry, kissed the girls and made them cry

Georgy Porgy, pudding pie, kissed the girls and made them cry
Kissed the girls and made them cry, kissed the girls and made them high

Georgy Porgy
Kissed the girls and made them cry, kissed the girls and made them high
Georgy Porgy
Kissed the girls and made them cry, kissed the girls and made them cry
