Hi! I think the song you are looking for is by a group called the Concords. Teddy Grable sang lead and they recorded for a lot of different labels. I have talked to the woman who claims to be the "Marlene" of the song. She claims that her dad was the Concord's manager.I have an MP3 of it and the lyrics seem to match...

This might help a little. The title WAS "Marlene," and it did begin with, "Marlene, won't you let me take you to the dance's a quarter to eight, and it's getting late and that is why..." and the chorus sounds like the 4 seasons falsetto--"Ma ma ma-ma ma-ma ma-Marlene, MA mamamamama, MA-ma, ma Marlene, ma ma ma-Mar-lene."  :)

I remember the song name is Marlene.  I don't know the singer, but here are the words:

Marlene won't you let me take you to the dance tonight.....I'd love so to walk you home alone and hold you tight....Marlene, you're the only girl I give my kisses to....There'll never be another girl for me but you........

I would love to hear it again!
