Mel Street – Bad Bad Leroy Brown lyrics

Along the south side of Chicago is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there you better beware of a cat man Leroy Brown
Now Leroy more than trouble you see he stand bout six foot four
All the downtown ladies call him Treetop Lover and the gentlemen call him sir
He's bad bad Leroy Brown... Leroy Brown the meanest man the whole damn town
Meaner than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy he's a gamblin' man he likes his fancy clothes
He like to wave his diamond rings in front of everybody's nose
He got a custom continental and a Eldorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun he got a razor in his shoe
He's bad bad Leroy Brown...

Well Friday bout a week ago Leroy was shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl name Betty and ooh that girl looked nice
Well he cast his eyes upon her and the trouble soon began
Ol' Leroy learned a lot about foolin' with the wife of a jealous man
He's bad bad Leroy Brown...

Well the two men took to fightin' and when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle with a couple of pieces gone
He's bad bad Leroy Brown...
He's bad bad Leroy Brown...
