Bop Street  - Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps

Bop Street

Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps

(Gallup - Davis, Capitol, 1956)

Hey cat, where are ya goin' man?
Man, I'm going down to Bop Street
Tell me cat, where's that di-rection?
Man, ain't you heard? They got one of 'em in every town
Real cool

Ba-a-op Street, Ba-a-op Street
Oh, it's the cat and kittens of old Bop Street

Jumpin' Jacks, they ain't no square
A green paint pants and great pair
On Bop Street they're the main attraction
'Cause they're the cats who crave the action
A-jumpin' here, a-jumpin' there
A-jump jump jumpin' everyhere
The Jumpin' Jacksons are hard to beat
'Cause they're the cats 'n' kittens of old Bop Street
(Rock!)

Well, a dreamy day when it starts at nine
A-rockin' and a-rollin' all the time
A-green blue jeans and crazy shoes
A-jumpin' on Bop Street, losing the blues
A-jumpin' here, a-jumpin' there
A-jump jump jumpin' everyhere
The Jumpin' Jacksons are hard to beat
'Cause they're the cats 'n' kittens of old Bop Street
(Jump, Jack, jump!)

Well it's the street where the cool cats go
To spend their time and their hard earned dough
A-boppin' on Bop Street, goin' 'round
The juke box music with the rockin' sound
Well a-jumpin' here, jumpin' there
A-jump jump jumpin' everyhere
The Jumpin' Jacksons are hard to beat
'Cause they're the cats 'n' kittens of old Bop Street

Ba-a-op Street, Ba-a-op Street
Come on man, let's get going
Yeah, let's go on down to Bop Street
Ba-a-op Street
