      Dodie Stevens recorded 'Pink Shoe Laces' when she was 12.
      it reached No.3, in the USA, when she was 13. it is about a
      girl whose Boyfriend is called Doolie. He is very eccentric and
      he wears weird clothes and shoes. It is a 'Novelty' Single, of
      course and not meant to be 'serious'....
