“Georgy Porgy” is a David Paich song released from Toto’s self-titled debut album in 1978. It was released as a single and charted on the Billboard Hot 100 (#48) as well as on both the R&B (#18) and the Dance (#80) charts.

Cheryl Lynn provided the female backing vocal.

The song is still performed on tour. It is adapted with improvisational solos on guitar and keyboards.[1]

In an 1988 interview with Modern Drummer, Jeff Porcaro discussed developing the groove for “Georgy Porgy”:

“…it’s imitating Paul Humphrey heavily; it’s imitating Earl Palmer very heavily. When it comes to that groove, my biggest influences were Paul Humphrey, Ed Geene, Earl Palmer, and the godfather of that 16th-note groove, James Gadsen. That “Georgie Porgie” groove I owe to them.”

It's not your situation
I just need contemplation over you
I'm not so systematic
It's just that I'm an addict for your love
