The opening lines are:
The We Five remake, which reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the summer of 1965, altered some of the original Fricker lyrics. The comparatively intense tune was a favorite of easy-listening stations, topping Billboard's easy listening chart for five weeks.
The song was also a major hit in the UK for Crispian St. Peters. In Italy, a local group named Equipe 84 had a hit with this song, retitled "Io ho in mente te " ("I've you on my mind"). Another performance in Italian was made by Paul Anka. Canadian singer Marty Shannon had a minor hit with the song as well. Still another cover version by Les Fradkin on his 2006 CD "Jangleholic", has been a solid seller at Apple iTunes as a download single.
