About Groovy Situation

"Groovy Situation" is a 1969 song written by Russell Lewis and Herman Davis, and first recorded by Mel and Tim. It became a hit single when recorded by Gene Chandler on Mercury Records in 1970, in a version produced by Chandler. Chandler's single reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was a Top 10 Billboard R&B hit, peaking at #8. It was also an RIAA Certified Million-Seller, the Gold Record being awarded in November 1970. It was Chandler's second-biggest chart hit single, his biggest being the million-selling #1, "Duke of Earl", in 1962. It was taken from his album, The Gene Chandler Situation. This version is noted for the instrumental quoting, by muted trumpets, of the song "A Tisket, A Tasket" heard during the Introduction as well as in the Coda section, before the repeated chorus takes place before the song's fade. The success of this, and other records he wrote, recorded and produced that year earned him The National Association of Television and Radio Announcers Producer of the Year Award in 1970, against other nominees that included Kenneth Gamble, Leon Huff and Norman Whitfield.

That girl I'm gonna make her mine
If it takes all night
That girl I'm gonna make her mine
If it takes all night
Good evening sweet darling
May I ask your name
You seem to be lonely
Well don't worry I'm feeling the same

Oh, it's a groovy situation
A splendid combination
That we should meet
At a time like this
Oh it's a groovy situation 
a splendid combination
You're something that 
I just can't miss

It's been a long time sweet darling
since love has come my way
But I'm trying so hard
To find the right words to say

Oh, it's a groovy situation
A splendid combination
That we should meet
At a time like this
Oh it's a groovy situation 
a splendid combination
You're something that 
I just can't miss
