does anyone know?
an old song approx 1960-1967 that includes the words ( prob not the title ) ?ne thousand two hundred and thirty two holes are drilled into this piece of metal today" --- The 1232 may not be correct but it is close enough to be so. This song was played heaps on our local radio station in its time. I am in New Zealand. Thanks for looking

One thousand two hundred and thirty-four holes
I've drilled into this piece of metal today

Bartholomew they say

Cameldriver1 is absolutely right. It's Wayne Fontana, no Mindbenders - they left Wayne towards the end of 1965, and he commenced a solo career. Of course The Mindbenders also enjoyed a few hits of their own like 'A Groovy Kind Of Love'.
