Young Girl by Gary Puckett & The Union Gap was a UK number 1 hit on Wednesday, May 22, 1968 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song was written and produced by Jerry Fuller. It was a warning to a would-be lover of an underage girl of the consequences of him not being able to resist her charms. Jerry Fuller explained the inspiration for "Young Girl" in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh: "I was on the road a lot as an artist, fronting various groups for many years. I guess every entertainer goes through a time when 14-year-olds look like 20-year-olds. That's somewhat of an inspiration not from my own experience, just knowing that it happens."
