Track Name: Ain't That a Dilly
AIN'T THAT A DILLY
MARLON GRISHAM 1959


I walked into a record shop
They were playing number one
People rockin' up the place
And havin' so much fun
I heard this fellow talkin'
I heard this fellow say
Well, them cats are cool
And they're twice as gone
And they're a-rockin' all the way

chorus: Ain't that a dilly, ain't that a bird
Ain't that the coolest thing that you ever heard

Well, I love my baby
I'd climb the highest tree
I'd swim the widest ocean
If she'd just dance with me
So I called my baby on the phone
But she can't go tonight
She's got the mumps and the measles too
And she don't feel just right
CHORUS

Well, she's got me feelin' weary
She's a-got me feelin' blue
I think I'll write a song for her
And I'll record it too
I think I'll call it Chopin, Beethoven No. 2
Then I'll put it to a rockin' beat
And do it all for you
CHORUS
Track Name: Hey Little Girl

Track Name: Rollin' Pin Mim
Rollin Pin Mim - Ricky Coyne 1958

Well I saw a gal she was thin and tall
Rocking and a rolling at a big dance hall
She had a shape like a rolling pin
She was 7 foot tall and she was 3 inches thin

ahh hah... ohhh yeah... ahh hah... ohhh yeah... ahh hah

Well I said hey baby, hey what's your name?
she answered me softly in a sweet refrain
my real name it is such a sin
so all the cats call me rollin pin mim

ahh hah... ohhh yeah... ahh hah... ohhh yeah... ahh hah

solo - stop - intro

Well I said hey baby may I have this dance?
When we started to rock it sent the cats in a trance
She sent the chills up and down my spine
And I hoped and I prayed that she'd be mine all mine

ahh hah... ohhh yeah... ahh hah... ohhh yeah... ahh hah
Track Name: Brand New Chevy
Brand New Chevy
Devil Dogs

There’s a brand new Chevy on my block
That's makin everyone so mad
It’s got big mag wheels and leopard-skin seats
And it looks so fucking bad
It’s got the coolest wheels in town
Nobody can shut that Chevy down
‘cause that brand-new Chevy is mine

Well it runs as good as it looks now baby
It’s the coolest sled in town
No body can beat me anyhow
and they come from miles around
No one can put me down,
no body can shut that Chevy down
‘cause that brand-new Chevy is mine

(solo)

If you wanna ride with me now girl
well you better get in line
Cause all the chicks in town say they wanna get down
And they're lookin mighty fine
I got the coolest wheels in town
Nobody can shut that Chevy down
‘cause that brand-new Chevy is mine
Track Name: Can't Stop Now
Can't Stop Now
by Jon

rollin' with my baby what a ride
I reached down engaged overdrive
her motor was hot so I took it slow
she grabbed me tight and she won't let go

tight on the curve and four on the floor
had more power than ever did before
gonna have a drink then rev it up again
drive all the way to the promised land

well I can't stop now, yeah baby I can't stop now
I can't stop now, yeah baby I can't stop now
more on the way I don't know how
telling you baby I can't stop now

(solo)
Track Name: Lover's Curse
LOVERS CURSE - BRACEY EVERETT - 1958

Well, I I I I I I I know you're - out to torment me
And I I I I I I know I - never will be free
What could be worse, than the lover's curse

Well, I I I I I I know darlin', - who's been keepin' us apart
'Cause I I I I I I hear him, - laughin' at my broken heart
What could be worse, than the lover's curse

Whoaha-ha-ha-ha I'm under its command
Whoaha-ha-ha-ha it's got the upper hand
Whoaha-ha-ha-ha why don't you understand

I I I I I I I knew not,- when we met that day
Well, I I I I I I I'd end up - with a debt to pay
What could be worse, than the lover's curse

[Solo]

Whoaha-ha-ha-ha I'm under its command
Whoaha-ha-ha-ha it's got the upper hand
Whoaha-ha-ha-ha why don't you understand

But I I I I I I I knew not, - when we met that day
Well, I I I I I I I'd end up - with a debt to pay
What could be worse, than the lover's curse
Than the lover's curse, Than the lover's curse

Track Name: Long Ponytail
LONG LONG PONYTAIL
version by Tom and the Tornadoes

Well, now one night long there was a cloud in the sky
I met a pretty girl and she caught my eye
A long ponytail made of all her hair
Really lets you know, when that girl is there
She's the girl with the long long ponytail

Well, I walked up to her and I said, hey baby
Why didn't you let me know
I've never seen you around here before
And I missed you so
Yeah man, I really like that long long ponytail

And I said, long ponytail
Ah-ah, long ponytail
Ooh, long ponytail
Yeah, long ponytail
Yeah, I really like that long long ponytail

solo

Now, I took her out to a dance that night
She got out on the floor and she did it up right
Her long ponytail just a-fallin' to the beat
Don't you know, all the boys want to meet
That girl with the long long ponytail

Well, I walked her home and up to her front door
She gave me a little kiss and I begged for more
She looked at me with a twinkle in her eye
Said, now baby don't you realize
That you're in love with a long long ponytail

And I said, long ponytail
Ah-ah, long ponytail
Ooh, long ponytail
Yeah, long ponytail
Yeah, I'm in love with a long long ponytail

Well now, pretty mama, as you can see

Well someone who loves me and treats me right

Well you can walk out that door
Well I don't need you no more
So baby just you leave me alone

Well you told me you love me and you said you'd be true
And then without a reason, well, you said we were trough
But for a short while I wished I was dead
But now, pretty baby, I repeat what you said

I don't need you no more
Well you can walk out that door
Well I don't need you no more
So baby just you leave me alone

Alright honey leave me alone...
