John Lennon - Paul McCartney

NOW SOMEWHERE IN THE BLACK MOUNTAIN HILLS OF DAKOTA
THERE LIVED A YOUNG BOY NAMED ROCKY RACCOON-A.
AND ONE DAY HIS WOMAN RAN OFF WITH ANOTHER GUY:
HIT YOUNG ROCKY IN THE EYE, ROCKY DIDN'T LIKE THAT.
HE SAID, "I'M GONNA GET THAT BOY."
SO ONE DAY HE WALKED INTO TOWN,
BOOKED HIMSELF A ROOM IN A LOCAL SALOON.

ROCKY RACCOON CHECKED INTO HIS ROOM
ONLY TO FIND GIDEON'S BIBLE.
ROCKY HAD COME EQUIPPED WITH A GUN
TO SHOOT OFF THE LEGS OF HIS RIVAL.
HIS RIVAL IT SEEMS HAD BROKEN HIS DREAMS
BY STEALING THE GIRL OF HIS FANCY.
HER NAME WAS MAGILL,, AND SHE CALLED HERSELF LIL,
BUT EVERYONE KNEW HER AS NANCY.

NOW SHE AND HER MAN, WHO CALLED HIMSELF DAN,
WERE IN THE NEXT ROOM AT THE HOE-DOWN.
ROCKY BURST IN AND GRINNING A GRIN,
HE SAID, "DANNY BOY, THIS IS A SHOWDOWN."
BUT DANIEL WAS HOT, HE DREW FIRST AND SHOT
AND ROCKY COLLAPSED IN THE CORNER - AH.

D'DA D'DA D'DA DA DA DA,
D'DA D'DA D'DA DA DA DA,
D'DA D'DA D'DA DA D'DA D'DA D'DA D'DA,
DO DO DO DO DO DO.

D'DO D'DO D'DO DO DO DO,
D'DO D'DO D'DO DO DO DO,
D'DO D'DO D'DO DO DO D'DO D'DO D'DO D'DO,
DO DO DO DO DO DO.

NOW THE DOCTOR CAME IN, STINKING OF GIN
AND PROCEEDED TO LIE ON THE TABLE.
HE SAID, "ROCKY, YOU MET YOUR MATCH."
AND ROCKY SAID, "DOC, IT'S ONLY A SCRATCH,
AND I'LL BE BETTER, I'LL BE BETTER, DOC,
AS SOON AS I AM ABLE."

AND NOW ROCKY RACCOON, HE FELL BACK IN HIS ROOM
ONLY TO FIND GIDEON'S BIBLE.
(do, do, do, do)
(ooooh, Rocky)
GIDEON CHECKED OUT AND HE LEFT IT NO DOUBT
(ooooh ...) TO HELP WITH GOOD ROCKY'S REVIVAL - AH.
OH YEAH, YEAH.

D'DO D'DO D'DO DO DO DO,
D'DO D'DO D'DO DO DO DO,
D'DO D'DO D'DO DO DO D'DO D'DO D'DO D'DO,
DO DO DO DO DO DO.

D'DO D'DO D'DO DO DO DO, COME ON, ROCKY BOY,
D'DO D'DO D'DO DO DO D'DO D'DO D'DO D'DO,
THE STORY OF ROCKY THERE.
