Bo Diddley – Diddley Daddy lyrics

(ellas mcdaniel/harvey fuqua) 1956

Diddley diddley daddy,
Diddley diddley daddy.

I got a baby that's oh so pretty,
I found her right here in the windy city,
Somebody kissed my baby last night,
My pretty baby cried, you know it wasn't right.

Diddley diddley daddy,
Diddley diddley daddy.

My baby started to cry in vain,
Say bo diddley, you know you're a natural born man,
I say I love you baby with all my heart,
Please don't never say we'll part.

Diddley diddley daddy,
Diddley diddley daddy.

Bo diddley, bo diddley here's our scene,
I want to know if you do love me.

Diddley diddley daddy,
Diddley diddley daddy.
