The O’Kaysions Girl Watcher

The O'Kaysions Girl Watcher

Beach Music

Here’s a little Sixties beach music for us, even though it’s Winter and there’s snow in many places. In 1968, “Girl Watcher” went to #5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #6 on the R&B Chart. It sold more than one million copies and was awarded an RIAA gold record. In 1987, the song was reworked as “I’m a Wheel Watcher” was used to promote the game show Wheel of Fortune.

The O’Kaysions, first called The Kays, formed in 1959. They were from Wilson, North Carolina. The original band members were Donnie Weaver (vocals, organ), Wayne Pittman (guitar), Eddie Dement (trumpet), Gerald Toler (saxophone), Jimmy Hinnant (bass), and Steve Watson (drums). They continued to tour and perform for many decades.

Here are the lyrics to “Girl Watcher” by The O’Kaysions:

“[Chorus:]
I’m a girl watcher, I’m a girl watcher…
Watchin’ girls go by, my, my my
I’m a girl watcher, I’m a girl watcher…
Here comes one now

I was just a boy when I threw away my toys
I found a new pastime to dwell on
Whenever I detects them there of the other sex
I play the game I do so well on

[Chorus]

Hello there female my my, but you do look swell
Could you please walk a little slower
I wonder if you know that you’re putting on a show
Could you please walk a little closer

[Chorus]”
