EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Have I the Right?’ – The Honeycombs

What was the number one song in the UK on 27th August 1964?

British band, The Honeycombs reached the top spot for 2 weeks with Have I the Right?

This upbeat, jangly pop tune starts off sounding like bit of a mess, but the more I listen to it, the more I love it. It’s one of those songs that holds the power to cheer one up. I may even give it a second listen…

Lyrics

Have I the right to hold you? You know I’ve always told you
That we must never ever part oh ooh ooh oh
Have I the right to kiss you? You know I’ll always miss you
I’ve loved you from the very start
Come right back I just can’t bear it
I’ve got this love and I long to share it
Come right back I’ll show my love is strong
Have I the right to touch you? If I could you’d see how much you
Send those shivers running down my spine. Ooh Ooh
Have I the right to thrill you? You know I’ll wait until you
Give me the right to make you mine.
Well, Come right back I just can’t bear it
I’ve got this love and I long to share it
Come right back I’ll show my love is strong. Oh yeah.
All right!
Have I the right to hold you? You know I’ve always told you
That we must never ever part. No no no no no no
Have I the right to kiss you? You know I’ll always miss you.
I’ve loved you from the very start.
Come right back I just can’t bear it
I’ve got this love and I long to share it
Come right back I’ll show my love is strong. Oh yeah yeah
Come right back I just can’t bear it
I’ve got this love and I long to share it
Come right back right back where you belong oh yeah
You belong oh yeah
You belong
