Peter & Gordon - Lady Godiva
Tekst en muziek: Mike Leander en Charles John Mills

Seventeen, a beauty queen
She made a ride that caused a scene
In the town

Her long blonde hair hangin’ down around her knees
All the cats who dig striptease, prayin’ for a little breeze
Her long blonde hair falling down across her arms
Hiding all the lady’s charms
Lady Godiva

She found fame and made her name
A Hollywood director came into town
And said to her
“How’d you like to be a star
You’re a girl that could go far
’Specially dressed the way you are”
She smiled at him
Gave her pretty head a shake
That was Lady G’s mistake
Hey, hey, hey
Lady Godiva

He directs certificate ’X’
And people now are craning their necks
To see her
’Cause she’s a star
One that everybody knows
Finished with the striptease shows
Now she can’t afford her clothes

Her long blonde hair lyin’ on the barber’s floor
Doesn’t need it long anymore
Lady Godiva
