This is a song from my childhood that I remember well, but I'd never heard this portion of the song until just now. This is the reprise of Georgy Girl from the end of the movie:

Georgy Girl (Reprise)



Hey there, Georgy girl,
Pretty as a picture. Told you so.
Can it be the Georgy we all know
Or somebody new? I wonder.
Hey, there, Georgy girl,
Hurrying away to celebrate.
Got yourself a man, but, wait,
There's somebody else for you.
Who needs a perfect lover
When you're a mother at heart?
That's all you wanted right from the start,
Well, didn't you?
Hey, there, Georgy girl,
Now that you're no longer on the show,
Better try to smile and tell yourself that you got your way,
You've made it.
Hey, there, Georgy girl,
Now you've got a future planned for you . . .

The woman who sang that song from the Seekers passed away this year. Her name was Judith Durham.
She died in August 2022 at age 79.

The other White guy in that band was from my hometown.

It was a joke
The Talking Heads released an album called More songs about buildings and food. Geez. Tough crowd.
Hey Did you hear Johnathan Greenblatt was fired from his job as a circus geek for being too weird.
Even the Elephant man was afraid to look at him.
