GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY

Original Little Richard version


Good Golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball
Whoa, Good Golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball
Oh when you're rocking and a-rolling can hear your mama call

From the early, early morning till the early, early night
When you caught Miss Molly rocking at the House of Blue Lights

Good Golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball
Oh when you're rocking and a-rolling can hear your momma call

Momma, poppa told me, "Son, you better watch your step"
If you knew my poppa, momma has to watch my pa herself"

Good Golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball
Oh when you're rocking and a-rolling can hear your mama call
Ahhh!

Good Golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball
Whoa, Good Golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball
Oh when you're rocking and a-rolling can hear your mama call

I'm going to the corner, gonna buy a diamond ring
Would you pardon me, kiss me ting-a-ling-a-ling

Good Golly Miss Molly, sure like to ball
Oh when you're rocking and a-rolling can hear your mama call
