Come a Little Bit Closer" is a song by the 1960s rock and roll band Jay and the Americans. It reached number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1964, making it the band's highest charting single. It remains their most popular song, according to Last. It also peaked at number 4 on the Cashbox chart and at number 1 on RPM's singles chart. The single served as a comeback for the group, who had not had a hit in some time.
Growing up I always knew that I was a little bit different. Always challenging authority and not just accepting the rules as law. I was always pushing the boundaries and bending the rules to see what I could get away with. I was a good student but always found that I was challenging the teachers. Since I been out I have worked regular jobs and I was still spending far too much time away from my kids. I also knew that there was something missing in my life. At the time, I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but looking back now it is so obvious. I went from helping people on a daily basis in the Marine Corps to just working a 9-5 J O B and not helping anyone better themselves.
So I started walking her way She belonged to bad man Jose And I knew, yes I knew I should leave When I heard her say, yeah. Come a little bit closer You're my kind of man So big and so strong Come a little bit closer I'm all alone and the night is so long". So we started to dance In my arms, she felt so inviting And I just couldn't resist Just one little kiss, so exciting. Come a Little Bit Closer by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart appears on the 1964 Jay and the Americans album of the same name. This was Jay and the Americans biggest hit. It’s a first person cowboy song and takes its inspiration from Marty Robbins' El Paso.
But as I recall, that's how it went down. For the songwriters Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, this was their first Top 10 hit. As part of the Brill Building/Aldon Music songwriting scene in New York City, they became a very successful songwriting duo, scoring many of The Monkees' hits.

Casual fans of Jay & the Americans might only need a dozen-track collection to satisfy their needs, but for the fans who need all the hits, some choice album tracks, and Italian and Spanish versions of "She Cried" and "Come a Little Bit Closer," this is the collection for them.
