Australian singles chart:
Little Arrows entered the Kent charts on 21 September 1968 and peaked at #2. It was #7 on the Top 100 of 1968. It was The Beatles’ Hey Jude that prevented Lee from leaping to the top of the chart.
Little Arrows was written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazelwood and recorded by English singer Leapy Lee (Lee Graham). It was the first hit for songwriter Hammond. He recalled to The Independent that he “was working at the Chelsea Drug Store, just doing dishes” when he wrote this song. Hammond added: “I’d carry around a little transistor radio and play it to the other guys when the song came on but they’d never believe it was me.”
