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

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

[Chorus:]

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Earl-eye in the morning

Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

[Chorus]

Put him the back of the paddy wagon,
Put him the back of the paddy wagon,
Put him the back of the paddy wagon,
Earl-eye in the morning!

[Chorus]

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

[Chorus]

Put him in the hold with the Captain’s daughter,
Put him in the hold with the Captain’s daughter,
Put him in the hold with the Captain’s daughter,
Earl-eye in the morning!

[Chorus]

Throw him in the lock-up ‘til he’s sober,
Throw him in the lock-up ‘til he’s sober,
Throw him in the lock-up ‘til he’s sober,
Earl-eye in the morning!

[Chorus]

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

[Chorus]

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!
