Have You Seen Her” is a song recorded by the soul vocalgroup, The Chi-Lites, and released on Brunswick Records in 1971. Composed by the lead singer Eugene Record andBarbara Acklin, the song was included on the group’s 1971album (For God’s Sake) Give More Power to the People.

The Chi-Lites recorded “Have You Seen Her” in a style owing much to the doo-wop traditions of the late 1950s, after the success of another such song earlier in the year,The Temptations‘ “Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me).”[citation needed] The song begins and ends with a spoken narrative that tells the story that once he was happy. However, his girl left him, and so he takes walks to the movies, or to the park, and tries to hide from his misery by telling jokes to the kids who know him.
