Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies, You're the gals for me. Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies, I'll keep you company. You can have your Marilyn, your Carolyn, your Jacqueline. Grace Kelly never meant that much to me-- Just give me: Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies, You're the gals for me. (I'll give you secrets.) And you're the gals for me. Oh, you get good defense from Robert McNamara-- Defends us all day long; But when Lord Profumo takes off his mascara You know he can't go wrong. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., and Lord and Lady Astor: Everybody's gonna lose their minds Because of: Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies, Will you be mine, all mine? (I'll take your pictures.) Will you be mine, all mine?
The tune for this song was taken from "Walk Right In" by the Rooftop Singers.
(C) 1963 Phil Ochs.
[NOTES: Sure, someone could look up the details of this one-among-many British aristocracy-spies-and-sex scandal, but basically this song is, IMHO, just a lovely piece of topical fluff and fun. --email@example.com]
I got a correction about this song from Tom Drake: "John Profumo was never a Lord or an aristocrat. I know because we used to fly him around in our Air Corps helicopter in the 60's."Last modified 27 May 02 by trent
