    Spoiler:

    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more,
    no more, no more, no more)
    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more)
    What you say?

    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more,
    no more, no more, no more)
    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more)

    Woah, Woman, oh woman, don't treat me so mean
    You're the meanest old woman that I've ever seen
    I guess if you said so
    I'd have to pack my things and go (That's right)

    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more,
    no more, no more, no more)
    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more)
    What you say?

    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more,
    no more, no more, no more)
    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more)

    Now baby, listen, baby, don't ya treat me this-a way
    Cause I'll be back on my feet some day
    (Don't care if you do 'cause it's understood)
    (You ain't got no money you just ain't no good)
    Well, I guess if you say so
    I'd have to pack my things and go (That's right)

    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more,
    no more, no more, no more)
    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more)

    What you Sayyyyyyyyyyy

    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more,
    no more, no more, no more)
    (Hit the road, Jack and don't you come back no more)
    Well (don't you come back no more)

    Ah, what you say
    (don't you come back no more)
    I didn't understand you
    (don't you come back no more)
    You can't mean that
    (don't you come back no more)
    Aw, now baby please
    (don't you come back no more)
    What you tryin' to do to me?
    (Don't you come back no more) (fades out)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Here's my story, it's sad but true
    It's about a girl that I one knew
    She took my love, then ran around
    With every single guy in town

    Whoah
    Whoah
    Whoah
    La la la la
    Whoah...

    Yeah, I shoulda known it from the very start
    This girl'd leave me with a broken heart
    A-listen people what I'm tellin' you
    A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue

    Yeah, I miss her lips and the smile on her face
    The touch of her hand and this girl's warm embrace
    So if you don't want to cry like I do
    A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue

    Whoah
    Whoah
    Whoah

    She likes to travel around, yeah
    She'll love you and she'll put you down
    Now people let me put you wise
    A-Sue goes out with other guys

    Here's the moral of the story from the guy who knows
    I fell in love and my love still grows
    Ask any fool that she ever knew
    They'll say-a
    'A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue'

    I paid it all
    Yeah, keep away from this girl
    I don't know what she'll do
    Keep away from Sue

    She liked to travel around, yeah
    She'll love you and she'll put you down
    Now people let me put you wise
    A-she goes out with other guys

    Here's the moral of the story from the guy who knows
    I fell in love and my love still grows
    Ask any fool that she ever knew
    They'll say-a
    'A-keep away from a-Runaround Sue'
    Yeah
    Stay away from that girl
    Don't you know what she'll do, now?
    Whoah
    Whoah (fades out)

    "Big Bad John" by Jimmy Dean

    Post  Admin on October 7th 2012, 5:37 am

    "Big Bad John"

    by Jimmy Dean
    songwriter: Jimmy Dean
    Nov. 6th, 1961 - (#1 - 5 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (Big John, Big John)

    Ev'ry mornin' at the mine you could see him arrive
    He stood six foot six and weighed two forty five
    Kinda broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip
    And everybody knew ya didn't give no lip to Big John.
    (Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

    Nobody seemed to know where John called home
    He just drifted into town and stayed all alone
    He didn't say much, kinda quiet and shy
    And if you spoke at all, you just said "Hi" to Big John.

    Somebody said he came from New Orleans
    Where he got in a fight over a Cajun Queen
    And a crashin' blow from a huge right hand
    Sent a 'Loosiana' fellow to the Promised Land-Big John
    (Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

    Then came the day at the bottom of the mine
    When a timber cracked and men started cryin'
    Miners were prayin' and hearts beat fast
    And everybody thought that they'd breathed their last-'cept John

    Through the dust and the smoke of this man-made hell
    Walked a giant of a man that the miners knew well
    Grabbed a saggin' timber, gave out with a groan
    And like a giant oak tree he just stood there alone-Big John
    (Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

    And with all of his strength he gave a mighty shove
    Then a miner yelled out "There's a light up above!"
    And twenty men scrambled from a would-be grave
    Now there's only one left down there to save-Big John

    With jacks and timbers they started back down
    Then came that rumble way down in the ground
    And then smoke and gas belched out of that mine
    Everybody knew it was the end of the line for Big John
    (Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

    Now they never reopened that worthless pit
    They just placed a marble stand in front of it
    These few words are written on that stand
    At the bottom of this mine lies a Big Big man, Big John
    (Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John)

    (Big John, Big John) Big Bad John (Big John) (fades out)

    (Don't break the heart that loves you so)

    Don't break the heart that loves you
    Handle it with care
    Don't break the heart that needs you
    Darlin', please be fair
    Why do you flirt and constantly hurt me
    Why do you treat our love so carelessly

    You know I'm jealous of you and yet you seem to try
    To go out of your way to be unkind
    Sweetheart, I'm begging of you
    Don't break this heart that loves you
    Don't break this heart of mine

    (Spoken)
    Darling, please don't hurt me
    Please, don't make me cry
    I don't know what I'd do if you'd ever say goodbye
    Remember I love you so much and love's life's greatest joy
    Please don't break my heart like a child breaks a little toy

    Sweetheart, I'm begging of you
    Don't break this heart that loves you
    Don't break this heart of mine

    Johnny Angel, you're an Angel to me

    Johnny Angel, how I love him
    He's got something I can't resist,
    but he doesn't even know that I exist

    Johnny Angel, how I want him
    How I tingle when he passes by
    Every time he says "Hello" my heart begins to fly

    (I remember) I get carried away
    I dream of him and me, and how it's gonna be.

    (Other fellas) call me up for a date,
    but I just sit and wait, I'd rather concentrate ...

    on Johnny Angel
    'Cause I love him
    And I pray that someday he'll love me.
    And together we will see how lovely heaven will be

    (I remember) I get carried away
    I dream of him and me, and how it's gonna be.

    Don't want a four leaf clover

    Rabbit's foot on a string
    The happiness in your warm caress
    No rabbit's foot can bring

    Come on and be my little good luck charm

    Your love is worth all the gold on earth

    Soldier boy
    Oh, my little soldier boy
    I'll be true to you

    You were my first love
    And you'll be my last love
    I will never make you blue
    I'll be true to you
    In this whole world
    You can love but one girl
    Let me be that one girl
    For I'll be true to you

    Wherever you go
    My heart will follow
    I love you so
    I'll be true to you
    Take my love with you
    To any port or foreign shore
    Darling you must feel for sure
    I'll be true to you

    Soldier boy
    Oh, my little soldier boy
    I'll be true to you

    Lyrics click Spoiler:
    Spoiler:

    Here I stand, watching the tide go out
    So all alone and blue
    Just dreaming dreams of you

    I watched your ship
    As it sailed out to sea
    Taking all my dreams
    And taking all of me

    The sighing of the waves
    The wailing of the wind
    The tears in my eyes burn
    Pleading, "My love, return"

    Why, oh, why must I go on like this?
    Shall I just be a lonely
    Stranger on the Shore?

    The sighing of the waves
    The wailing of the wind
    The tears in my eyes burn
    Pleading, "My love, return"

    Why, oh, why must I go on like this?
    Shall I just be a lonely
    Stranger on the shore?

    (I can't stop loving you)
    I've made up my mind
    To live in memories of the lonesome times
    (I can't stop wanting you)
    It's useless to say
    So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday

    Those happy hours that we once knew
    Tho' long ago, it's still makes me blue
    They say that time heals a broken heart
    But time has stood still since we've been apart

    (I can't stop loving you)
    I've made up my mind
    To live in memories of the lonesome times

    (Roses are red, my love)

    A long, long time ago
    On graduation day
    You handed me your book
    I signed this way:

    "Roses are red, my love
    Violets are blue
    Sugar is sweet, my love
    But not as sweet as you"

    We dated through high school
    And when the big day came,
    I wrote into your book,
    next to my name:

    "Roses are red, my love
    Violets are blue
    Sugar is sweet, my love
    But not as sweet as you"

    Then I went far away
    And you found someone new
    I read your letter dear
    And I wrote back to you:

    "Roses are red, my love
    Violets are blue
    Sugar is sweet, my love
    Good luck may god bless you"

    Is that your little girl?
    She looks a lot like you
    Someday some boy will write
    in her book, too

    "Roses are red, my love
    Violets are blue
    Sugar is sweet, my love
    But not as sweet as you

    Doo, doo, doo down dooby doo down down, comma comma

    Don't take your love away from me
    Don't you leave my heart in misery
    If you go then I'll be blue
    'Cause breaking up his is hard to do

    Remember when you held me tight
    And you kissed me all through the night
    Think of all that we've been through
    And breaking Up Is Hard To Do

    They say that breaking up is hard to do
    Now I know, I know that it's true
    Don't say that this is the end
    Instead of breaking up I wish that we were making up again

    I beg of you, don't say goodbye
    Can't we give our love another try
    Come on baby, let's start a new
    'Cause breaking up is hard to do

    (They say that breaking up is hard to do)
    Now I know, I know that it's true
    (Don't say that this is the end)
    Instead of breaking up I wish that we were making up again

    Everybody's doin' a brand-new dance, now
    (Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
    I know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance, now
    (Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
    My little baby sister can do it with ease;
    It's easier than learning your A-B-C's,
    So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me
    You gotta swing your hips, now. Come on, baby
    Jump up. Jump back. Well, I think you've got the knack, whoa, whoa

    Now that you can do it, let's make a chain, now
    (Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
    A chug-a chug-a motion like a railroad train, now
    (Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
    Do it nice and easy, now, don't lose control:
    A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul
    So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

    Yea, yea, yea, yeah

    Move around the floor in a Loco-motion
    (Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
    Do it holding hands if you get the notion
    (Come on baby, do the Loco-motion)
    There's never been a dance that's so easy to do
    It even makes you happy when you're feeling blue,
    So come on, come on, do the Loco-motion with me

    You gotta swing your hips now
    That's right you're doin' fine
    Come on baby, Hmm, hmm, hmm jump up
    Jump back you're lookin' good
    Hmm, hmm, hmm jump up
    Jump back (fades out)

    Lyrics click Spoiler:
    Spoiler:

    I was working in the lab late one night
    When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
    For my monster from his slab began to rise
    And suddenly to my surprise

    (He did the mash)
    He did the monster mash
    (The monster mash)
    It was a graveyard smash
    (He did the mash)
    It caught on in a flash
    (He did the mash)
    He did the monster mash

    From my laboratory in the castle east
    To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
    The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
    To get a jolt from my electrodes

    (They did the mash_
    They did the monster mash
    (The monster mash)
    It was a graveyard smash
    (They did the mash)
    It caught on in a flash
    (They did the mash)
    They did the monster mash

    The zombies were having fun
    The party had just begun
    The guests included Wolf Man
    Dracula and his son

    The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
    Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
    The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
    With their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"

    (They played the mash)
    They played the monster mash
    (The monster mash)
    It was a graveyard smash
    (They played the mash)
    It caught on in a flash
    (They played the mash)
    They played the monster mash

    Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring
    Seems he was troubled by just one thing
    He opened the lid and shook his fist
    And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist"

    (It's now the mash)
    It's now the monster mash
    (The monster mash)
    And it's a graveyard smash
    (It's now the mash)
    It's caught on in a flash
    (It's now the mash)
    It's now the monster mash

    Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
    And my monster mash is the hit of the land
    For you, the living, this mash was meant too
    When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you

    (Then you can mash)
    Then you can monster mash
    (The monster mash)
    And do my graveyard smash
    (Then you can mash)
    You'll catch on in a flash
    (Then you can mash)
    Then you can monster mash

    See the way he walks down the street
    Watch the way he shuffles his feet
    My, he holds his head up high
    When he goes walking by
    He's my guy

    When he holds my hand I'm so proud
    'Cause he's not just one of the crowd
    My baby, oh he's the one
    To try the things they've never done
    Just because of that they say

    He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
    He's a rebel because he never ever does what he should
    And just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
    That's no reason why I can't give him all my love
    He is always good to me, always treats me tenderly
    'Cause he's not a rebel, no no no
    He's not a rebel, no no no, to me

    If they don't like him that way, they won't like me after today
    I'll be standing right by his side, when they say

    He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
    He's a rebel because he never ever does what he should
    And just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
    That's no reason why we can't share a love
    He is always good to me, good to him I'll try to be
    'Cause he's not a rebel, no no no
    He's not a rebel, no no no, to me

    (Oh he's not a rebel), no no no
    (He's not a rebel), no no no
    (He's not a rebel), no no no
    (He's not a rebel), no no no
    (He's not a rebel), no no no
