About Jennifer Eccles

"Jennifer Eccles" is a 1968 single by The Hollies. It was released with the B-side Open Up Your Eyes on the Parlophone label, Catalogue number R5680. The song reached #7 on the UK singles chart in March 1968. Around the same time, it was released in the US with a different B-side, "Try It", and reached #40 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was written by members of the band with input from their wives and the title is a combination of their names (Allan Clarke's wife Jennifer née Bowstead and Graham Nash's wife Rose née Eccles) and after criticism of "King Midas in Reverse" and was a return to the popular format that had been commercially successful though not necessarily lyrically sophisticated. Jennifer Eccles (who had "terrible freckles") also features in the song "Lily the Pink" by The Scaffold; the reference is an in-joke, as Graham Nash, who left the Hollies in December 1968, sang backing vocals on this recording; Nash had been married to Rose Eccles from 1964 until 1966.

White chalk, written on red brick
Our love, told in a heart
It's there, drawn in the playground
Love, kiss, hate or adore

I love Jennifer Eccles
I know that she loves me
I love Jennifer Eccles
I know that she loves me

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la

I used to carry her satchels
She used to walk by my side
But when we got to her doorstep
Her dad wouldn't let me inside

One Monday morning, 
Found out I'd made the grade
Started me thinking, 
Had she done the same?

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la

One Monday morning, 
Found out I'd made the grade
Started me thinking, 
Had she done the same?

I hope Jennifer Eccles
Is going to follow me there
Our love is bound to continue
Love, kiss, hate or adore 
Singing

I love Jennifer Eccles
I know that she loves me
I love Jennifer Eccles
I know that she loves me

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la
