  • Picked her up on a Friday night.
    Sha la la la lee, yeah.
    I knew everything gonna be alright.
    Sha la la la lee, yeh.
    Sha la la la lee.

    I asked her 'where do you want to go?'.
    Sha la la la lee, yeh.
    Well we went someplace, I don't know.
    Sha la la la lee, yeh.
    Sha la la la lee.

    I held her close and I asked her
    If she was gonna be my baby.
    It felt so good
    When she answered me:
    Oh yeh, oh yeh.
    Oh yeh, oh yeh, oh yeh.

    She looked good and she moved so fine.
    Sha la la la lee, yeh.
    And all the guys knew she was mine.
    Sha la la la lee, yeh.
    Sha la la la lee.

    I held her close and I asked her
    Again if she was gonna be my baby.
    It felt so good when she answered me.
    Oh yeh, oh yeh.
    Oh yeh, oh yeh, oh yeh.

    Want to know how my story ends?
    Sha la la la lee, yeh.
    Well we invited just a few close friends.
    Sha la la la lee, yeh.
    Sha la la la lee.

    Sha la la la la la lee.
    Sha la la la la la lee.

    Sha la la la la la lee.
    Sha la la la la la lee.
    Sha la la la la la lee.

    Sha la la la la la la la la la lee.
    Sha la la la la la la la la la lee.
    Sha la la la la la la la la la lee. Writer/s: KENNY LYNCH, MORT SHUMAN

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn June 22nd 1966, the Small Faces performed "Sha La La La Lee" on the ABC-TV program 'Where The Action Is'...
    The song never made Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart in the U.S.A.; but on March 13th, 1966 it peaked at #3* {for 1 week} on the United Kingdom's Singles chart...
    It would be one year and five months later that they would debut on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; "Itchycoo Park" entered the Top 100 on November 5th, 1967 and would eventually peak at #16...
    * The two records that prevented "Sha La La La Lee' from reaching #1 were; "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" by the Walker Brothers {#1} and "I Can't Let Go" by the Hollies {#2}.
