Artiestinformatie

Land   Nederland

Een Nederlands pop trio dat werd samengesteld door Peter Koelewijn in 1979. De groep bestond uit Gemma van Eck, Monique Hagemeijer en Rita Van Rooij. Hagemeijer werd in 1980 vervangen door Margot van der Ven en in 1981 kwam Marga Bult om de plaats in te nemen van Van Eck.



Het trio had verschillende hits waaronder Please Me, Please Do, The Kiss en Dolly The Doll. Opvallend is dat ze met de 14 hits die zij scoorden in de Nederlandse Top 40 nooit de Top 10 wisten te bereiken.



In 1986 werd de groep opgeheven.

Songtekst

Mister Blitzer, how do you do
Champagne is on ice, and I am waiting for you
Mister Blitzer, what do you say
This lady keeps you company, 'till you go away

There's a place down in soho
Were women don't go, and only men know
The band plays cool, but the music is hot
And the girl at the door, is telling every big shot:

Mister Blitzer, how do you do
Champagne is on ice, and I am waiting for you
Mister Blitzer, what do you say
This lady keeps you company, 'till you go away

The prettiest girl was maria for sure
A gypsy princess in every dress that she wore
Nobody knew, where she came from
But only her smile, made the men come

And maria was dancing, like she never had done
Completely in trance, and everyone
Was clapping there hands, it was as if they were
Gypsies 'round a fire, looking at her
And she was dancing,

Then I saw the man, he stood at the door
His black eyes were staring at the girl on the floor
And suddenly, I understood why
He stepped on the floor and said: "maria goodbye"

And the shot thundered in my ears
I flew to the door, thinking, get out of here
All through soho, I ran and I ran
I will never return, would say never again:

Mister Blitzer, how do you do
Champagne is on ice, and I am waiting for you
Mister Blitzer, what do you say
This lady keeps you company, 'till you go away
