Ginger & The Snaps – Spare Time [Lyrics]

Another one of my favorite teen doo wop songs: ‘Spare Time’ by Ginger and The Snaps, apparently released by Titan in 1961 on 7″ 45 RPM vinyl. This apparently rare track floats around in obscure corners of the Internet with the artist (mis)labeled as Ginger & The Safaris as well. The original record is worth a hundred bucks!

When there’s nothing to do
And no place to go
You can find me oh
Sitting home all alone
Dreaming of you
This is what I do in my spare time

Then I close my eyes
Whoa I close them so tight
I try to see your face
Oh I try with all my might
Dreaming of you
This is what I do in my spare time

Clock strikes six, seven, eight,
And it’s almost nine
Wish you were here, holding me near
Ending my spare time

So I’ll keep on wishing
Wishing for your love
For I haven’t found you
The one I’m thinking of
Dreaming of you
This is what I do in my spare time

Clock strikes six, seven, eight,
And it’s almost nine
Wish you were here, holding me near
Ending my spare time

So I’ll keep on wishing
Wishing for your love
Oh I haven’t found you
The one I’m thinking of
Dreaming of you
This is what I do in my spare time
