Lyrics:

Now lets hear the story of Bo Diddley and the Rock n Roll scene in general

Bo Diddley was born Elias McDaniels in a place called McCoom,

Missississipi about 1926

He moved to Chicago about 1938

Where his name was eventually changed to Bo Diddley



He practiced the guitar everyday and sometimes into the night

Till his papa's hair began to turn white

His Pa said Son, listen hear, I know

You can stay but that guitar has just gotta go

So he pulled his hat down over his eyes

Headed out for them Western Skies

I think Bob Dylan said that

He hit New York City



He began to play at the Apollo in Harlem

Good scene there everybody raving

One day, one night, came a Cadillac with four head lights

Came a man with a big, long, fat, cigar said, C'mere son, I'm gonna make you a

star

Bo Diddley said, Uh..whats in it for me?

Man said, Shut your mouth son , play the guitar and you just wait and

see



Well, that boy made it, he made it real big

And so did the rest of the rock n roll scene along with him

And a white guy named Johnny Otis took Bo Diddleys rhythm

He changed it into hand-jive and it went like this

In a little old country town one day

A little old country band began to play

Add two guitars and a beat up saxophone

When the drummer said, boy, those cats begin to roam

Oh baby oh we oh oh

Ooh la la that rock and roll

Ya hear me oh we oh oh

Ooh la la that rock and roll



Then in the U.S. music scene there was big changes made

Due to circumstances beyond our control such as payola

The rock n roll scene died after two years of solid rock and you got discs like,

ah...

Take good care of my baby

Please don't ever make her blue and so forth



About, ah, one year later in a place called Liverpool in England

Four young lads with mop haircuts began to sing stuff like, ah...

It's been a hard days night and I;ve been working like a dog and so on

In a place called Richmond in Surrey, whay down in the deep south

They got guys with long hair down their back singing

I wanna be your lover baby I wanna be your man yeah and all that jazz



Now we've doing this number, Bo Diddley, for quite some time now

Bo Diddley visited this country last year

We were playing at the Club A Gogo in Newcastle, our home town

The doors opened one night and to our surprise walked in the man himself, Bo

Diddley

Along with him was Jerome Green, his maraca man, and the Duchess, his gorgeous

sister



And a we were doing this number

Along with them came the Rolling Stones, the Mersey Beats,

They're all standing around diggin' it

And I overheard Bo Diddley talkin'

He turned around to Jermone Green

And he said, Hey, Jerome? What do you think these guys doin' our..our

material?

Jerome said, Uh, where's the bar, man? Please show me to the bar...

He turned around the Duchess

And he said, Hey Duchess...what do you think of these young guys doin' our

material?

She said, I don't know. I only came across here to see the changin' of the

guards and all that jazz.



Well, Bo Diddley looked up and said to me, with half closed eyes and a smile,

He said Man, took off his glasses,

He said, Man, that sure is the biggest load of rubbish I ever heard in my

life...



Hey Bo Diddley

Oh Bo Diddley

Yeah Bo Diddley

Oh Bo Diddley

Yeah Bo Diddley
