Georgy Girl(1964)
(Words by Jim Dale and Music by Tom Springfield)

Hey there, Georgy girl
Swingin' down the street so fancy-free
Nobody you meet could ever see the loneliness there
inside you - Hey there, Georgy girl
Why do all the boys just pass you by?
Could it be you just don't try or is it the clothes you wear?

You're always window shopping but never stopping to buy
So shed those dowdy feathers and fly - a little bit

Hey there, Georgy girl
There's another Georgy deep inside
Bring out all the love you hide and, oh, what a change there'd be
The world would see a new Georgy girl

Hey there, Georgy girl
Dreamin'; of the someone you could be
Life is a reality, you can't always run away
Don't be so scared of changing and rearranging yourself
It's time for jumping down from the shelf - a little bit

Hey there, Georgy girl
There's another Georgy deep inside
Bring out all the love you hide and, oh, what a change there'd be
The world would see a new Georgy girl

(Hey there, Georgy girl)
Wake up, Georgy girl
(Hey there, Georgy girl)
Come on, Georgy girl



Georgy girl是美國流行榜上第一次由澳洲組合攀上第一位

THE CARNIVAL IS OVER


1968年是Judith歌迷最傷心的年份,在這年七月Judith決定離開樂隊,返回澳洲尋找'Mr Right',在家鄉遇上Ron Edgeworth,翌年下嫁這位芭蕾舞鋼琴家(Judith自小立志成為芭蕾舞鋼琴家)。



Say goodbye my own true lover
As we sing a lovers song
How it breaks my heart to leave you
Now the carnival is gone
High above the dawn is waiting
And my tears are falling rain
For the carnival is over We may never meet again
Like a drum my heart was beating
And your kiss was sweet as wine
But the joys of love are fleeting For Pierrot and Columbine
Now the harbour light is calling
This will be our last goodbye
Though the carnival is over I will love you till I die
Like a drum my heart was beating
And your kiss was sweet as wine
But the joys of love are fleeting For Pierrot and Columbine
Now the harbour light is calling
This will be our last goodbye
Though the carnival is over
I will love you till I die

I'll never find another you (1968)


(Music by Tom Springfield)


There's a new world somewhere
They call The Promised Land
And I'll be there some day
If you will hold my hand
I still need you there beside me
No matter what I do
For I know I'll never find another you

There is always someone
For each of us they say
And you'll be my someone
For ever and a day
I could search the whole world over
Until my life is through
But I know I'll never find another you

It's a long, long journey
So stay by my side
When I walk through the storm
You'll be my guide, be my guide

If they gave me a fortune
My treasure would be small
I could lose it all tomorrow
And never mind at all
But if I should lose your love, dear
I don't know what I'll do
For I know I'll never find another you

Another you, another you


一個機緣下,由Tom Springfield (Dusty's brother) 寫下這首"I'll Never Find Another You"卻令Judith轉職為職業歌手,而這首歌更是國際流行榜上第一隊澳洲組合攀上,從此The seeker蓆捲全球,尤以Judith最受歌迷愛戴。

Morningtown Ride.(1968)


Train whistle blowin' makes a sleepy noise
Underneath their blankets go all the girls and boys
Rockin', rollin', ridin', out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown, many miles away

Driver at the engine, fireman rings the bell
Sandman swings the lantern to show that all is well
Rockin', rollin', ridin', out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown, many miles away

Maybe it is raining where our train will ride
All the little travellers are warm and snug inside
Rockin', rollin', ridin', out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown, many miles away

Somewhere there is sunshine, somewhere there is day
Somewhere there is Morningtown, many miles away
Rockin', rollin', ridin', out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown, many miles away

Rockin', rollin', ridin', out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown, many miles away


1969年由Keith Potger(前THE SEEKERS成員)一手組成的THE NEW SEEKERS,只出了一張單曲細碟及一張大碟,Keith Potger便離開樂隊。
