Lyrics

Now lets hear the story of Bo Diddley
And the Rock n Roll scene in general
Bo Diddley was born Elias McDaniels
In a place called McCoom,
Missississipi about 1926
He moved to Chicago about 1938
Where his name was eventually changed
To Bo Diddley

He practiced the guitar
Everyday and sometimes into the night
Till his papa's hair
Began to turn white
His Pa said Son,
Listen hear, I know
You can stay but
That guitar has just gotta go
So he pulled his hat down over his eyes
Headed out for them Western Skies
I think Bob Dylan said that
He hit New York City

He began to play at the Apollo in Harlem
Good scene there
Everybody raving
One day,
One night,
Came a Cadillac
With four head lights
Came a man with a big, long, fat, cigar said,
C'mere son, I'm gonna make you a star
Bo Diddley said,
Uh..whats in it for me?
Man said,
Shut your mouth son,
Play the guitar and you just wait and see

Well, that boy made it,
He made it real big
And so did the rest of
The rock n roll scene along with him
And a white guy named Johnny Otis
Took Bo Diddleys rhythm
He changed it into hand-jive
And it went like this

In a little old country town one day
A little old country band began to play
Add two guitars and a beat up saxophone
When the drummer said, boy,
Those cats begin to roam

Oh baby oh we oh oh
Ooh la la that rock and roll
Ya hear me oh we oh oh
Ooh la la that rock and roll

Then in the U.S. music scene
There was big changes made
Due to circumstances
Beyond our control
Such as payola
The rock n roll scene died
After two years of solid rock
and you got discs like,
ah...

Take good care of my baby
Please don't ever make her blue
And so forth

About, ah,
One year later
In a place called Liverpool in England
Four young guys with mop haircuts
Began to sing stuff like, ah...

It's been a hard days night
And I've been working like a dog
And so on

In a place called Richmond in Surrey,
Way down in the deep south
They got guys with long hair down
Their back singing
I wanna be your lover baby
I wanna be your man yeah
And all that jazz

Now we've doing this number, Bo Diddley,
For quite some time now
Bo Diddley visited this country
Last year

We were playing at the Club A Gogo in Newcastle,
Our home town
The doors opened one night
And to our surprise
Walked in the man himself,
Bo Diddley
Along with him was
Jerome Green, his maraca man,
And the Duchess, his gorgeous sister

And a we were doing this number
Along with them came
The Rolling Stones,
The Mersey Beats,
They're all standing around diggin' it
And I overheard Bo Diddley talkin'
He turned around to Jermone Green
And he said,
Hey, Jerome?
What do you think these guys doin' our..
Our material?
Jerome said,
Uh, where's the bar, man?
Please show me to the bar...
He turned around the Duchess
And he said,
Hey Duchess...
What do you think of these young guys
Doin' our material?
She said,
I don't know.
I only came across here to see the changin'
of the guards and all that jazz.

Well, Bo Diddley looked up and said to me,
With half closed eyes and a smile,
He said Man,
Took off his glasses,
He said, Man,
That sure is the biggest load of rubbish
I ever heard in my life...

Hey Bo Diddley
Oh Bo Diddley
Yeah Bo Diddley
Oh Bo Diddley
Yeah Bo Diddley
