Ain

Ain't That A Dilly

Marlon Grisham

(Grisham, Cover 5982, 19590)

I walked into a record shop
They were playing number one
People rockin' up the place
And havin' so much fun
I heard this fellow talkin'
I heard this fellow say
Well, them cats are cool
And they're twice as gone
And they're a-rockin' all the way
Ain't that a dilly, ain't that a bird
Ain't that the coolest thing that you ever heard

Well, I love my baby
I'd climb the highest tree
I'd swim the widest ocean
If she'd just dance with me
So I called my baby on the phone
But she can't go tonight
She's got the mumps and the measles too
And she don't feel just right
Ain't that a dilly, ain't that a bird
Ain't that the coolest thing that you ever heard

Well, she's got me feelin' weary
She's a-got me feelin' blue
I think I'll write a song for her
And I'll record it too
I think I'll call it Chopin, Beethoven No. 2
Then I'll put it to a rockin' beat
And do it all for you
Ain't that a dilly, ain't that a bird
Ain't that the coolest thing that you ever heard
