'Go Away Little Girl' is a popular song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. The lyrics consist of a young man asking an attractive young woman to stay away from him, so he won't be tempted to betray his steady girlfriend by kissing her.
Someone said about her (and i completely agree): 'Marlena Shaw doesn't take no mess. Tough as nails except where it counts, she says what she means and doesn't need to say it twice. Marlena knew what she wanted and stepped forward to get it. Her dusky voice ripened at Columbia in a songbook that smolders with the embers of old flames. With no nonsense and no niceties, she sings "Go Away Little Boy" for all the men who don't have the courage to satisfy a real W-O-M-A-N '
In my top 5 of the best spoken tracks ever.
