Bop-A-Lena
Ronnie Self Lyrics


Oop-scooby-dooby-lena, go-gal-go
Bop-a-lena, bop-a-lena, she's my gal
Oh, bop-a-lena, bop-a-lena, yeah she's my gal
She's my gal and I love her so
Oop-scooby-dooby-lena, go-gal-go

Well the school bells are ringin', everybody went out
Goin' to the shag, gonna shake it all about
Bop-a-lena lookin' like a rose in the will
Man I dig that freak juvenile
When she gets a-goin' she's a real cool chick
She do the bop like a pogostick

Bop-a-lena, bop-a-lena, she's my gal
Oh bop-a-lena, bop-a-lena, yeah she's my gal
She's my gal and I love her so
Oop-scooby-dooby-lena, go-gal-go

I got my pattern-leather shoes on my hounddog feet
Me and bop-a-lena gonna walk the beat
To the whole jukebox in the be-bop shag
When we get a-goin', gonna ball a jack
Bop-a-lena got two feet that talk
Look at her go on a camelwalk

Bop-a-lena, bop-a-lena, she's my gal
Oh bop-a-lena, bop-a-lena, yeah she's my gal
She's my gal and I love her so
Oop-scooby-dooby-lena, go-gal-go

Bop-a-lena, bop-a-lena, she's my gal
Oh bop-a-lena, bop-a-lena, yeah she's my gal
She's my gal and I love her so
Oop-scooby-dooby-lena, go-gal-go

That is one of the hardest rocking songs of all time...harder than metallica and rob zombie put together...

John Ferguson

I used to live in Springfield Missouri when I was a kid during the 1960s and my mom and dad were very good friends with Ronnie Self and his wife. I was about five years old and we went to their house one time and he was giving me a ride on his motorcycle and a car backed out in front of us and he eased over to the shoulder of the road and it was gravel and we flipped and I went sliding down the road on my chest and stomach and all I had on was a pair of cut off blue Jean shorts. I had to go to the hospital and have skin grafts.

I agree

I bought this on 78rpm back in July 1958, I actually purchased it for the other side 'Aint I'm a Dog'. Sold it for £103 pounds in 1986.

Ain't I'm a Dog" is not on the flip at least not on the USA pressings

My band The Twilight Tones did a version of this song, still gets everyone out on the dance floor, but none of us can do that voice, closest my guy can get is a Billy Lee Riley voice as we do Red Hot as well

Very raw, yet apparently it did very well in the music world. Made it to #60 on CashBox charts, March 8 1958
