The Raindrops – That Boy John lyrics

Ba-bow dit
Ba-bow dit
That boy John
(Ba-bow dit shoo doo)
Well he looks so good when he walks on by,
All the girls try to catch his eye...
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh
I can hardly believe
(I can hardly believe)
That he's goin' with me.

I tell ya that boy John
(Ba-bow dit shoo doo)
When he holds me tight
And he says he's mine,
He sends those chills up and down
My spine.
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh
He's the handsomest boy
(He's the handsomest boy)
That I ever did see.

Some boys make you cry,
Kiss you once and make you cry.
Some boys put you on,
Yeah (Yeah)
Yeahhh! (Yeahhh!)

But that boy John
(Ba-bow dit shoo doo)
When he says to me
Baby, I love you,
I just know
Every word is true.
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh
Whoa-oh-oh whoa-oh
He's the boy that I love,
(He's the boy that I love,)
And I told him I do.

[Fabulous sax break.]

Well he's gooood to me,
That boy John is-a good to me,
And he's gooood to me,
Sweet and kind as a-he can be,
And he's gooood to me...
{Etc. To fade, with Ellie wailing]
