Bad, Bad Leroy Brown Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now the south side of Chicago
Is (it's) the baddest part of town
And if you (you're gonna) go down there, you better (just) beware
Of a man (cat) named Leroy Brown
Verse 2
Now Leroy (Brown) he's trouble
And he stands about six-feet-four
All the downtown ladies call him treetop lover
The studs they call him sir
Verse 0
[Chorus]
(Yeah) he's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Meanest (baddest) man (cat) in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
(And he's) meaner than a junkyard dog
Verse 3
Now Leroy he's a gambler
And he likes (digs) his (those) fancy clothes
He likes to wave his (that great, big, big fat, shiny diamond ring)
Under (in front of) everybody's nose
Verse 4
He's got a custom Continental
He's got an Eldorado too
He's got a 22 (32) gun in his pocket for fun
He's got a razor in his (the razor in the) shoe
Verse 5
[Chorus]
Verse 6
Now Friday, 'bout a week ago
Leroy shootin' dice
And at the end (edge) of the bar sat (was) a lady (chick) named Dorris (Morris)
Man she sure looked nice
Verse 7
And (well then) he laid his eyes upon her
That's when the big scene (trouble soon) began
And Leroy Brown he learned a lesson 'bout messin'
With the wife of a jealous man
Verse 8
[Chorus]
