  • For you to think of me
    It would only take a minute of your time
    To spare one thought for me
    Would you miss just one minute of your time?

    When you are far away
    I'd like to be part of your time each day
    So think of me

    A minute of your time
    Is all it takes to bring us close
    When we are far apart

    And if I'm on your mind
    I know that there's a chance
    You'll ind that I'm there in your heart
    One minute ev'ry day
    May help to keep the wolf away
    Until that moment you are back to stay
    But better still I'd like to think of me
    Ev'ry minute of your time Writer/s: CLIVE WESTLAKE

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 28th 1968, Tom Jones appeared on the BBC-TV program 'Sunday Night at the London Palladium'...
    As the time his "I'm Coming Home" was at #20 on the United Kingdom's Singles chart; and six weeks earlier on December 17th it had peaked at #2* on the UK Singles chart...
    Across the pond in the U.S.A.; the song was in its second of two weeks at #57, and this was also its fifth and last week on the Top 100....
    Appearing on the same TV program was the American super trio, the Supremes...
    * The week "I'm Coming Home" was at #2, the #1 record for that week was "Hello Goodbye" by the Beatles.
