Little Richard – Long Tall Sally!!

I was just doing my exercise this morning and this came up on my shuffle. A great one to exercise to!

I first heard this back in 1962 when I was thirteen. I had been into Buddy Holly and the Shadows and got hold of Here’s Little Richard. What a fabulous album. The power of those 1950s vocals certainly rocked me. He was the King for me! I played that album to death until I discovered Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and then the Beatles blew everything apart.

“Long Tall Sally”

Gonna tell Aunt Mary ’bout Uncle John
He claims he has the music
But he has a lot of fun
Oh baby
Yes baby
Wooh baby
Havin’ me some fun tonight, yeahWell, long tall Sally
She’s really sweet
She got everything that Uncle John need
Oh baby
Yes baby
Wooh baby
Havin’ me some fun tonight, yeah

Well, I saw Uncle John with bald head Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin’
And he jumped back in the alley
Oh baby
Yes baby
Wooh baby
Havin’ me some fun tonight, yeah

Well, long tall Sally
She’s built for speed
She got everything that Uncle John need
Oh baby
Yes baby
Wooh baby
Havin’ me some fun tonight, yeah

Well, I saw Uncle John with bald head Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin’
And he jumped back in the alley
Oh baby
Yes baby
Wooh baby
Havin’ me some fun tonight, yeah

We gonna have some fun tonight
Have some fun tonight, wooh
Have some fun tonight
Everything’s all right
Have some fun
Have me some fun tonight

I'd like to hear from you...
