Bad, Bad Leroy Brown
Words & Music:
Well, the south side of Chicago is the baddest part of town.
And if you go down there, you better just beware
Of a man name of Leroy Brown.
Now, Leroy more than troubl. You see, he stand about six-foot-four.
All the downtown ladies call him "Treetop Lover".
All the men just call him "Sir."
And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown. The baddest man in the whole damn town.

Badder than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog.
Now, Leroy, he a gambler and he like his fancy clothes.
And he like to wave his diamond rings In front of everybody's nose.
He got a custom Continental. He got an Eldorado too.
He got a .32 gun in his pocket for fun. He got a razor in his shoe.
Now, Friday 'bout a week ago, Leroy shootin' dice.
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl name Doris
And, oooo! That girl looked nice!
Well, he cast his eyes upon her and the trouble soon began.
Leroy Brown learned a lesson 'bout messin'
With the wife of a jealous man.
Well the two men took to fighting
And when they pulled them from the floor.
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle with a couple of pieces gone.
