Cast Iron Arm - Peanuts Wilson

Cast Iron Arm

Peanuts Wilson

(Beatt - Petty - Orbison, Brunswick 55039, 1957)

The other night, me and my girl went ballin'
The other night, me and my girl went ballin'
Went to a place called Joe's, that's where everybody goes
When we walked in, she turned every face in the place
When we walked in, she turned every face in the place
A cool number jumped up and made a play for my girl
So I said, so long boy!

I said, don't mess with me, 'cause I got a cast iron arm
I said, don't mess with me, 'cause I got a cast iron arm
Oh, when you mess with me, that only ring my alarm

Well, the music was a-rockin' and the joint was a-jumpin' with jive
Well, the music was a-rockin' and the joint was a-jumpin' with jive
Well, the same cool number made the same wrong move
I hit him in the head!

I said, don't mess with me, 'cause I got a cast iron arm
I said, don't mess with me, 'cause I got a cast iron arm
Oh, when you mess with me, that only ring my alarm
I said, don't mess with me, 'cause I got a cast iron arm
I said, don't mess with me, 'cause I got a cast iron arm
Oh, when you mess with me, that only ring my alarm
You ain't gonna mess with me boy!
