Oldies/Trying to find a song with some lyrics


"Pardon me , but may I ask your name, I don't mean to be fresh, pardon me  "
These are the only lyrics I remember -  I guess 1958-1961  is the time  frame

Hi Mike

Pardon Me is an Otis Blackwell song, recorded by Billy Bland in 1960 and released that summer as the flipside of "You Were Born To Be Loved".

I can answer questions about pop music from the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. I can help track down hard to find songs based on lyric fragments or other minimal information. I was an expert in this field but due to a family situation, was away from e-mail for a couple of weeks and forgot to put in a vacation listing with AllExperts.


I have been answering questions for this site for a few years. It would be nice to be reinstated. I have no idea how many questions I have answered but many people have written to me to say how I have touched their lives by helping them locate a song that is important to them or a loved one.

I am a college graduate.
