Dolly Dots bestaan uit Esther Oosterbeek, Angela Groothuizen, Ria Brieffies, Patty Zomer, Anita Heilker en Angela Kramer. Tussen 1978 en 1988 scoort Nederland\s bekendste meidengroep grote hits met de grootste in 1984. Love Me Just A Little Bit More wat 1 week op nummer 1 in de Top 40 verblijft. In 1988 geven ze een afscheidconcert en gaan de dames hun eigen weg. Groothuizen is vandaag de dag bekend op televisie en van de rest is weinig meer vernomen.

In 1998 en 2007 komen de Dots bij elkaar voor reunie concerten. Op 20 juli 2009 overlijdt Ria Brieffies aan longkanker.

Songtekst

When we had our little love affair
Can still recall the day
Where are you now, what is left of our love
You can’t let it vanish this way
Where were you that day

Where were you
When I needed you
Don’t be a pretender, why won’t you surrender
You know you get the best out of me
Where were you
When I needed you
Forget all the sad lines, think of the good times
I know that we can make it somehow
So where are you now…

What is left of all the things you said
Of all the love and care you’ve showed me
Here I am and I’m just feeling bad
‘Cause I don’t know where I’m going
Don’t walk out on me this way
It’s so easy so tell me where were you that day

Where were you
(Where were you when I needed you)
When I needed you (oehoehoe)
Just try to remember, I’m not an amender
I want you just the way that you are
So where were you
(Where were you when I needed you)
When I needed you (oehoehoe)
Just give me a break
That’s all that it takes
Try it ‘cause I know you know how
But where are you now…

What’s the use of staying - home alone
If I don’t know if you’re coming
Still I know we’d have a better time
If you would try instead of running
We can take down the wall we made
So come on let’s not waist on more day

Where were you
(Where were you when I needed you)
When I needed you (oehoehoe)
Oh - forget all the sad lines, think of the good times
I know that we can make it somehow
So where are you now…

(Solo)

Where were you
(Where were you when I needed you)
When I needed you (oehoehoe)
Don’t be a pretender, won’t you surrender
You know you get the best out of me
Where were you
(Where were you when I needed you)
When I needed you (oehoehoe)
So forget all the sad lines, think of the good times
I know that we can make it somehow

Where were you
(Where were you when I needed you)
When I needed you (oehoehoe)
Just try to remember, I’m not an amender
I want you just the way that you are
So where were you
(Where were you when I needed you)
When I needed you (oehoehoe)
Just give me a break
That’s all that it takes
Try it ‘cause I know you know how
But where are you now…
