"Here Come the Girls" is a song written by Allen Toussaint and originally recorded by Ernie K-Doe and released in 1970. It failed to chart at that time. In 2007 the Boots Pharmacy chain used the song for two separate television commercials (August 2007; summer 2008).[1] This led to the song re-charting (at #43 for five weeks in the UK; and #48 in 2007 in Ireland[1][2][3] and again at #89 for two weeks in 2008).[3] It was this advertisement which the Sugababes overheard and subsequently sampled extensively.[1][4] After August 2008, it is the Sugababes cover which is heard on the Boots advertisements.
