GO 'WAY HOUNDDOG
(C. Johnson)
CLIFF JOHNSON (Columbia 40865, 1957)

Everybody's doin' it hounddog-hounddog
A-lob-bop-a-lu-bop, a-lob-barn-boom
But I just want to sing the blues
A-lob-bop-a-lu-bop, a-lob-barn-boom
Go 'way hounddog, let me sing my blues
Well I went down town just to see my girl
Thought I'd take her for a whirl
Go away boy was all she said, I'd rather listen to a hounddog
Go 'way hounddog, let me sing my blues

Well I wish I was a little bird, sittin' in a tree
I'd climb way up to stars of blue, no hounddog would hurt me
Go 'way hounddog, let me sing my blues
Everybody's doin' it hounddog-hounddog
A-lob-bop-a-lu-bop, a-lob-barn-boom
But I just want to sing the blues
A-lob-bop-a-lu-bop, a-lob-bam-boom
Go 'way hounddog, let me sing my blues
