JIMMY'S SONG

w & m by John D Loudermilk
1961 Acuff-Rose Publ. Inc.

Jimmy played the guitar, longed to be a big star
But Jimmy didn't have a song to sing
Jimmy sang sweet and Jimmy looked neat
But Jimmy didn't have a song to sing
Until one day Jimmy ran into
A little songwriter named Mary Lou
She had a brand new tune he dug
And all at once they fell in love
Now, Jimmy's singing...
Jimmy's song, everybody's crazy 'bout it
Jimmy's song, buying lots of records of it
Jimmy's song, all the girls are flipin' over
Jimmy's song, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
Jimmy's song, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
Jimmy's song, written by Mary Lou

Now, Jimmy's got a Cadillac, Mary's got a Cadillac
And a great big wedding ring
They've got a cottage out in the country
With a swimming pool and everything
But that ain't all that they have got
'Cause they've got a brand new little tot
Mary Lou thinks it's awfully sweet
When Jimmy rocks Jimmy junior to sleep
Singing...
Jimmy's song, lul-a-lul-a-lul-a-bye
Jimmy's song, lul-a-lul-a-lul-a-bye
Jimmy's song, lul-a-lul-a, don'tcha cry
Jimmy's song, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
Jimmy's song, goo, goo, goo, goo
Jimmy's song, written by Mary Lou
