About My Boy Lollipop

An album was the obvious next step, and Small set about recording with all the excitement of a child set loose in a candy store. And, in a way, that's exactly what the 16-year-old was. Her exuberance positively bleeds from the grooves, you can just about hear her grinning. Across ten covers and two co-written numbers, Small belts out the songs, with the backing sessionmen blending in big band sounds all set to an insistent jumped-up beat. And that was what it was really all about.

My boy lollipop You make my heart go giddyup. Millie Small was just 17 when the song was released. This song was originally an R&B hit in late 1956 for a white American singer named Barbie Gaye - her version is based on a piano rhythm and has a big saxophone solo. Millie Small's rendition has more of a reggae feel and features a harmonica solo. The original is titled "My Boy Lollypop," making it more obvious that she is singing about a guy, not a piece of candy.

Millie - My Boy Lollipop 1973. My boy lollipop, You made my heart go giddy up. You are as sweet as candy; You're my sugar dandy. Ha, ho my boy lollipop, Never ever leave me, Because it would grieve me. My heart told me so. I love you, I love you, I love you so. That I want you to know, I need you, I need you, I need you so, and I'll never let you go. My boy lollipop, you make my heart go giddy up. You set my world on fire, you are my one desire.

Redirected from Barbie Gaye). It was first recorded in New York in 1956 by Barbie Gaye. A later version, recorded in 1964 by Jamaican teenager Millie Small, with very similar rhythm, became one of the top selling ska songs of all time.
