Did Jimmy Savile pick the Tesco Christmas advert song?

by | 4th, December 2012

ONE current advert for Tesco’s Christmas stuff features a girl reaching into a stocking. As she grins, Joseph Arrington, Jr.’s (aka Joe Tex) song I Gotcha plays out. Bit odd, no? The wholesome lyrics are after the ad:

I Gotcha

Aha-ha you thought I didn’t see you now didn’t ya
Aha-ha you tried to sneak away from me didn’t ya
(Ha Ha Ha) Aha-ha now give me what you promised me
Give it up c’mon hey hey hey

You promised me today that you’d quit your boyfriend
I’d be the next one to ease on in
You promised me it’d be just us two yeah
I’d be the only man kissin’ on you yeah

Now kiss me hold it a long time
Hold it don’t turn me loose now
Hold it a little bit longer now
Hold it c’mon hold it, hold it, hold it, hold it, yeah
Hey ….

You made me a promise and you gonna stick to it
You shouldn’t have promised if you wasn’t gonna do it
You saw me and ran in another direction
I’ll teach you to play with my affection
