1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
A Guy is a Guy recorded by Doris Day introduced March 15, 1952
Written by Oscar Brand
Orchestra conducted by Paul Weston
In this song, a disarming Doris Day admits that she is not surprised that a guy follows her down the street because she knew that he would. Based on the 1719 British song A Knave is a Knave this novelty was Doris Day’s #1 hit of 1952 but she also charted with her dreamy, memorable version of When I Fall in Love from the film ‘One Minute to Zero.’
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"I walked down the street like a good girl should, he followed me down the street like I knew he would"
