You Beat Me To The Punch

on Sweet Soul Music: 1962

Lyrics

One day I first saw you on passing by,
I wanted to know your name but I was much too shy.
I was looking at you so hard until you must have had a hunch,
So you came up to me and asked me my name.

If I'm not mistaken, is that The Isley Brothers singing background vocals? I have to do some research... I do remember The Isley's were with Motown Records for a short period during the time Mary Wells came to the scene.
I always did love the bongos in this songs.
