About Crimson and Clover

"Crimson and Clover" is a 1968 song by American rock band Tommy James and the Shondells. Written by the duo of Tommy James and drummer Peter Lucia Jr., it was intended as a change in direction of the group's sound and composition. "Crimson and Clover" was released in late 1968 as a rough mix after a radio station leaked it. It spent 16 weeks on the U. S. charts, reaching number one in the United States (in February 1969) and other countries. The single has sold 5 million copies, making it Tommy James and the Shondells' best-selling song. (Note: the RIAA did not award a gold record so the 5 million sales number is not officially acknowledged.) It has been covered by many artists including Joan Jett and Prince. In 2006, Pitchfork Media named it the 57th best song of the 1960s.

Oh uh
Come on

I don't hardly know her
But I think I could love her
I hope she walks over
Cause I've been waiting to show her
Crimson and Clover
Over and over

Baby, I think I love you
I want to know for sure
Come here and stick it to me one time
You move me

Such a sweet thing
Makes me want to sing
What a beautiful feeling
Crimson and clover
Over and over

Baby I, I think I love you
But I want to know for sure
O come here, stick it to me one time
Ah, you don't move me
Look up!
