Problem Child - Roy Orbison

Problem Child

Roy Orbison

(Sam Phillips, SUN, October 1957)

Well my heartbeat is running wild
Because of you my problem child
Oh-oh baby, don't be running wild
Control yourself, don't be a problem child
Well a cat's got nine lives, I got one
But that lives gonna catch all of my fun
Oh-oh baby, don't be running wild
Control yourself, don't be a problem child
Well I do believe to my soul
You're out of control with this rock 'n' roll
Oh-oh baby, don't be running wild
Control yourself, you're a problem child

Well I do believe to my soul
You're out of control with this rock 'n' roll
Oh-oh baby, don't be running wild
Control yourself, you're a problem child
Well don't you see this shakin' spree
Is bound to be the death of me
Oh-oh baby, don't be running wild
Control yourself, you're a problem child
Problem child, running wild
Problem child, running wild

Also recorded by Ken Cook (with Roy Orbison) September 1958
