I Wanna Be Johnny's Girl

A song just played on my iphone and it made me recall this.

There is this one hit wonder called: "Bobby's Girl" by Marcie Blane from the 60's.

When I FIRST met John, I was 18, going on 19, and I'd walk around the house (I lived at home), and I'd sing the lyrics, except I'd change it from "Bobby's Girl" to "Johnny's girl"

there is this one part of the song where the back ground singers are singing:

"Your not a kid anymore...."

On the icing on my birthday cake when I turned 19, Mom had the bakers write:

"Your not a kid anymore"....

Here are the lyrics to that song:


(You're not a kid anymore)
(You're not a kid anymore)
When people ask of me
What would you like to be
Now that your not a kid anymore
(You're not a kid anymore)
I know just what to say
I answer right away
There's just one thing
I've been wishing for...
I want to be Bobby's girl
I want to be Bobby's girl
That's the most important thing to me...
And if I was Bobby's girl
If I was Bobby's girl
What a faithful, thankful girl I'd be
Each night I sit at home
Hoping that he will phone
But I know Bobby has someone else
(You're not a kid anymore)
Still in my heart I pray
There soon will come the day
When I will have him all to myself...
I want to be Bobby's girl
I want to be Bobby's girl
That's the most important thing to me...
And if I was Bobby's girl
If I was Bobby's girl
What a faithful, thankful girl I'd be
What a faithful, thankful girl I'd be
I want to be Bobby's girl
I want to be Bobby's girl
I want to be Bobby's girl
