About Long Haired Lover from Liverpool

"Long Haired Lover from Liverpool" is a pop song best known as a hit for Little Jimmy Osmond. Written by Christopher Kingsley (somehow credited as Christopher Dowden on the UK release) and produced by Mike Curb and Perry Botkin Jr, "Long Haired Lover from Liverpool" was a UK number one single for Jimmy Osmond. Riding high on the popularity of The Osmonds, Jimmy (the youngest sibling) had a massive hit with the song, in the process becoming the youngest person to ever reach number one on the UK Singles Chart aged 9 years 8 months. A UK number one for five weeks in December 1972, it was the Christmas number one that year, and has since sold over a million copies in the UK. It also reached #2 on the Australian Singles Chart (Kent Music Report) and #38 on the US, Billboard Hot 100. The song was first recorded by the writer and released in 1969. Kingsley's recording was an unsuccessful single although it was played by a popular MOR station, KMPC, in Los Angeles. However, Kingsley's record was distributed by MGM, the record label the Osmonds recorded for, and that was how Jimmy's mother first heard "Long Haired Lover From Liverpool." She thought it would be a great song for the youngest member of the Osmond family. Mike Curb, president of MGM and producer of the Osmonds agreed and recorded Jimmy. The timing could not have been better, as Osmond-mania was sweeping the UK and the Osmond family was embarking on a major UK-European promotional tour. Politics at the UK record company almost stopped the record from being released as a single, but through the efforts of Virgin Ear Music (a Richard Kaye Publishing Company - worldwide copyright owner of "Long Haired Lover From Liverpool") and his UK sub-publishers the Little Jimmy Osmond record was released.

I'll be your long haired lover from Liverpool, 
And I'll do anything you say. 
I'll be your clown or your puppet or your April Fool, 
If you'll be my sunshine daisy from L.A.

I'll be your leprechaun and sit upon an old toad stool, 
I'll serenade you till I'm old and gray. 
I'll be your long haired lover from Liverpool, 
You'll be my sunshine daisy from L.A.

You'll be my lovely daisy on the mountainside, 
There are lots of other flowers, too. 
But all the other flowers hung their heads and cried
Because the loveliest of all of them was you.

But you were evidently the exception to the rule, 
I picked you quickly then I ran away. 
'Cause I was your long haired lover from Liverpool, 
You were my sunshine daisy from L.A.

I'll be your long haired lover from Liverpool, 
And I'll do anything you ask. 
I'll be your clown or your puppet or your April Fool, 
Cut my hair, I'll even wear a mask.

I'll be your Valentine, and you'll be mine, and things'll be cool. 
We'll move along together every day.
I'll be your long haired lover from Liverpool, 
You'll be my sunshine daisy from L.A., 
You'll be my sunshine daisy from L.A.

I'll be your long haired lover from Liverpool, 
And I'll do anything you ask. 
I'll be your clown or your puppet or your April Fool, 
Cut my hair I'll even wear a mask.

I'll be your Valentine, and you'll be mine, and things'll be cool. 
We'll move along together every day. 
I'll be your long haired lover from Liverpool, 
You'll be my sunshine daisy from L.A.
