Only The Lonely
Flying Pickets Lyrics


(Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-ah-ah, only the lonely, only the lonely)

Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know the way I feel tonight (Ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know this feeling ain't right (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)

There goes my baby, there goes my heart
They're gone forever, so far apart
But only the lonely know why I cry--only the lonely
(Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh-ah-ah, only the lonely, only the lonely)

Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know the heartaches I've been through (Ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know I cry and cry for you (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)

Maybe tomorrow a new romance
No-o-o more sorrow, but that's the chance
You've got to take, if your lonely heart breaks
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)

They had 2 big hits and this along with the other few songs they did hardly sold.
They even tried covering another Yazoo song hoping to have similar success but it didn't sell.
Many reason why, extreme political views, very unmarketable appearance, novelty doesn't last long.
Difficult to sell posters and merchandise of these, they looked like different incarnations of Dr Who.
Poor choice of songs, the late 50s early 60s revival period was over.
A capella was popular then, many reasons for them not having an enduring chart success.
You may or may not like my summing up, but for all those that say " why didn't this become a hit" or " music from back then was better" I'll just say..
" the people of the time, didnt like it so didn't buy it.
It wasn't a big hit because those who were buying records at the time spent thier money on other records

The truly magnificent and sadly missed Brian Hibbard always wore the mullet and 'boards from his early days in tv. A great Welshman, a great man.

I'd never heard of Flying Pickets until today.
This is a fabulous rendition of the Big O's song.
Brian Hibbard has a wonderful voice and the backing vocalists are all excellent.
Huge respect. ....from Ron in Perth, Australia.
