EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘How Do You Do It?’ – Gerry & The Pacemakers

What was the number one song in the UK on 11th April 1963?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

British band, Gerry & The Pacemakers were number one for 3 weeks with How Do You Do It?

How Do You Do It? was the debut single from Gerry & the Pacemakers. It’s a lovely tune that has your foot tapping along with it. The sound is incredibly basic, but this works very well. Were Gerry & the Pacemakers a pre-cursor for things to come in the music industry? They were 4 lads from Liverpool, managed by Brian Epstein and recorded by George Martin. Now, who does that remind me of…..

Lyrics

How do you do what you do to me?
I wish I knew
If I knew how you do it to me
I’d do it to you
How do you do what you do to me?
I’m feeling blue
Wish I knew how you do it to me
But I haven’t a clue
You give me a feeling in my heart
Like an arrow passin’ through it
Suppose that you think you’re very smart
But won’t you tell me how do you do it?
How do you do what you do to me?
If I only knew
Then perhaps you’d fall for me
Like I fell for you
You give me a feeling in my heart
Like an arrow passin’ through it
Suppose that you think you’re very smart
But won’t you tell me how do you do it?
How do you do what you do to me?
If I only knew
Then perhaps you’d fall for me
Like I fell for you
When I do it to you
