NME Chart 4 October 1969

The Peddlers highest ever singles chart position in the UK was number 17 reached by ‘Birth’ in the chart of 23 August 1969 This chart is from a couple of weeks later when the single had dropped to number 23 but is worth noting for the sheer variety and major names in the chart at the time.There’s Johnny Cash, The Bee Gees, Dylan, Marvin Gaye, David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Elvis, The Stones and Frank Sinatra just for starters with The Beatles being represented by the Harrison produced Radah Krishna Temple.By the way the version of ‘Je T’aime’ by Frankie Howerd and June Whitfield is definitely worth looking out for…………. oh all right then please yourselves!

Day-time comes-
Bringing the light
Giving the sun
To nature's earth
Beautiful sounds
And the blue bird sings
A baby's cryin'
It's a brand new birth
It's a brand new birth
And the little girl smiled when the little boy smiled
And the woman smiled 'cos the man had smiled
And the great big world was smiling down on them
Night-time comes-
Heaven's curtains drawn
Stars shining bright
Way up above
Children pray
And the workers rest
Peace and quiet
Oh it's people in love
Yes people in love
And the little girl laughed when the little boy laughs
And the woman laughs as the man was laughin'
And the great big world was smiling down on them
A distant land
A fearsome fight
Soldier's prayin'
Prayin' for peace
Suffrin' pain
And giving their lives
For man's greed oh God make it cease
God please make it cease
And the little girl cried when the little boy cried
And the woman cried 'cos the man was cryin'
And the great big world was crying down on them
