Tom Springfield composed the music and Jim Dale supplied the lyrics. The song became a hit late 1966 and early 1967, reaching number one in Australia and number three in the United Kingdom. In the United States, it was the Seekers' highest charting single, reaching number one on the Cash Box Top 100; number two on the Billboard Hot 100; and, prompting the Seekers' British album Come the Day to be retitled Georgy Girl for its American release. The song is heard at both the beginning and end of the film, with markedly different lyrics (and with different lyrics again from those in the commercially released version). It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song but lost the "Oscar" to the theme song from the film Born Free.
