Following the release of six singles in a row written by the hit team of
Giorgio Moroder and Peter Bellotte, CBS and Chicory Tip were desperate
for a hit, and they turned to Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley who had had great success
writing hits for Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich including their Number 1 single
"The Legend Of Xanadu" and "Have I The Right" for The Honeycombs.

"Take Your Time Caroline" was one of Chicory Tip's stand-out career moments, but
it still failed to chart.  It was a catchy song with the moog synthesizer well into the
back of the mix. Peter Hewson's voice was spot on on this track, but it turned
out to be the final single from the band on CBS and their penultimate single.
Listen out for the "oohs and aahs" and "showaddywaddys" on the harmonies
which are a feature of the song.

LYRICS

I know how you feel - It seems unreal, this game we play
You're a little scared, you never dared to act this way

Chorus 1

So take your time Caroline, Caroline take your time
Though it's late I'll wait for your starshine
Take your time Caroline, hold your breath count to nine
You're doing fine now you're mine my Caroline


I wish I like you, only a few daydreams ago
So trust me when I say after today our love will grow

Chorus 2
And take your time Caroline, Caroline take your time
Though it's late I'll wait for your starshine
I've got time Caroline, hold your breath count to nine
You're doing fine take your time my Caroline


Chorus 3
So never mind Caroline, Caroline take your time
Though it's late I'll wait for your starshine
Take your time Caroline, hold your breath count to nine
You're doing fine now you're mine, take your time

Repeat Chorus 3 to fade
