I'll let someone else convert to US money!!!! Walter.
Not a bad guess
It was in the charts from 14th Nov 1952 for 19 weeks. It mde it to No.1 for the week commencing 16th Jan 1953 for 1 week and was the first British Hit Single by a female.
Cost around 14cents
The lyrics for the 'middle bit' are:
I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too and blue
and the other verse is:-
Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember till you're home again
You belong to me
