He's A Rebel
The Crystals Lyrics


See the way he walks down the street
Watch the way he shuffles his feet
My, he holds his head up high
When he goes walking by, he's my guy

When he holds my hand, I'm so proud
'Cause he's not just one of the crowd
My baby's always the one to try the things they've never done
Just because of that, they say

He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
He's a rebel 'cause he never ever does what he should
Just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
That's no reason why I can't give him all my love

He's always good to me, always treats me tenderly
'Cause he's not a rebel, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, no, no, no, to me

If they don't like him that way
They won't like me after today
I'll be standing right by his side when they say

He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
He's a rebel 'cause he never ever does what he should
Just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
That's no reason why we can't share a love

He's always good to me, good to him, I try to be
'Cause he's not a rebel, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, no, no, no, to me

He's not a rebel, no, no, no (no, no, no)
He's not a rebel, no, no, no (no, no, no)
He's not a rebel, no, no, no (no, no, no)
He's not a rebel, no, no, no (no, no, no)

He's not a rebel, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, no, no, no

"He's A Rebel"

See the way he walks down the street
Watch the way he shuffles his feet
My, he holds his head up high
When he goes walking by
He's my guy

When he holds my hand, I'm so proud
'Cause he's not just one of the crowd
My baby's always the one
To try the things they've never done
And just because of that, they say

He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
He's a rebel 'cause he never ever does what he should
But just because he doesn't do
What everybody else does
That's no reason why I can't give him all my love

He's always good to me
Always treats me tenderly
'Cause he's not a rebel, oh no no no
He's not a rebel, oh no no no, to me

If they don't like him that way
They won't like me after today
And I'll be standing right by his side
When they say

He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
He's a rebel 'cause he never ever does what he should
But just because he doesn't do
What everybody else does
That's no reason why we can't share a love

He's always good to me
Good to him, I try to be
'Cause he's not a rebel, oh no no no
He's not a rebel, oh no no no, to me
Oh! (He's not a rebel, oh no no no

He's not a rebel, oh no no no
He's not a rebel, oh no no no
No no no

LYRICS TO HE'S A REBEL
written by GENE PITNEY

See the way he walks down the street
 Watch the way he shuffles his feet
 My, he holds his head up high
 When he goes walking by, he's my guy
When he holds my hand, I'm so proud
 'Cause he's not just one of the crowd
 My baby's always the one to try the things they've never done
 And just because of that, they say
He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
 He's a rebel 'cause he never ever does what he should
 But just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
 That's no reason why I can't give him all my love
He's always good to me, always treats me tenderly
 'Cause he's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
 He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no, to me
If they don't like him that way
 They won't like me after today
 I'll be standing right by his side when they say
He's a rebel and he'll never ever be any good
 He's a rebel 'cause he never ever does what he should
 Just because he doesn't do what everybody else does
 That's no reason why we can't share a love
He's always good to me, good to him, I try to be
 'Cause he's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
 He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no, to me
Oh, he's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
 He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
 He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
 He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no
 He's not a rebel, oh, no, no, no

My dad used to sing this song to me saying she instead of he. I lost him a few years ago but his spirit feels alive when I hear this song.

Mitch McConnell

He's right beside you.

Darlene Love is one of the most powerful and accomplished singers ever!

Jimaro Morales

The lyrics [Gene Pitney - 'the Rockville Rocker' (from Rockville CT)] to this song were outstanding too... they didn't do anything to prevent the song from becoming a hit! ツ👍

@Drew Harry that was a great movie

"Darlene..." -- Creepy producer clearly based on a young Spector in Bad Times At The El Royale..
