According to the liner notes of the _Brill Building Sound_ box set, this
was originally intended for Neil Sedaka, who even got as far as recording
his own voice over the instrumental track.  Wonder if the track was sped
up from F (or slowed down from G) to better accommodate Gene's range?

Verse 2:

	How long can I exist
	Wanting lips I've never kissed

	The only way to keep her
	Is keep it to myself

	Night and day
	Day and night
