"Alright, Alright, Alright" is a popular song and hit single by the British group Mungo Jerry, first released in 1973.[1]

Chart performance[edit]

It was written by Jacques Dutronc, Jacques Lanzmann and Joe Strange and produced by Barry Murray and Mungo Jerry's lead vocalist Ray Dorset.[2] Adapted from Dutronc's French original "Et moi, et moi, et moi",[3] the song entered the UK Singles Chart in July 1973 and reached No. 3 staying for twelve weeks on the chart.[4] [5]

It was the first Mungo Jerry single to be issued in the UK only as a conventional 45 r.p.m. two-track single without picture sleeve. Their first six had all been maxi-singles with picture sleeves, playing at 33 r.p.m. and containing three or four tracks in total, although in some cases, limited editions of two-track 45 r.p.m. pressings had been made available for jukeboxes.[6]
