Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well the South side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there
You better just beware
Of a man named Leroy Brown
Verse 2
Now Leroy more than trouble
You see he stand about six foot four
All the downtown ladies call him "Treetop Lover"
All the men just call him "Sir"
Verse 3
[Chorus: x2]
And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog
Verse 4
Now Leroy, he a gambler
And he likes his fancy clothes
And he likes to wave his diamond rings
In front of everybody's nose
He got a custom Continental
He got an Eldorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe
Verse 5
[Chorus]
Verse 6
Now Friday 'bout a week ago
Leroy shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar
Sat a girl named Doris
And ooh that girl looked nice
Well he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
And Leroy Brown learned a lesson 'bout messin'
With the wife of a jealous man
Verse 7
[Chorus]
Verse 8
Well the two men took to fighting
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone
Verse 9
And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog
Verse 10
And he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog
Verse 11
Yes he's badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog
