lyrics

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
