Bend Me Shape Me - Pitkin, poikin

Ringa ja Kaksoset released "Pitkin, Poikin" (Along, across) as a single in 1968. It was the groups second and last single and it was on the flipside of the earlier finnpick "Kunhat maksat kyytisi" (see here). The backing group on this record was famous Finnish rock band Soulset. The song was originally recorded in 1966 by an American garage band The Outsiders and it was called "Bend Me Shape Me". The song wasn't hit for them but became one with versions by American Breed (USA) (watch it here) and Amen Corner (UK) (watch it here).

Here's the pair:
