Leader of the Pack
The Shangri-Las Lyrics


"Is she really going out with him?
"Well, there she is, let's ask her"
"Betty, is that Jimmy's ring you're wearing?"
"Mmm-hmm"
"Gee, it must be great riding with him"
"Is he picking you up after school today?"
"Mmm-mmm"
"By the way, where did you meet him?"

I met him at the candy store
He turned around and smiled at me
You get the picture
"Yes, we see"
That's when I fell for the leader of the pack

My folks were always putting him down (down, down)
They said he came from the wrong side of town
(What you mean when you say that he came from the wrong side of town?)
They told me he was bad, but I knew he was sad
That's why I fell for the leader of the pack

One day, my dad said, "find someone new"
I had to tell my Jimmy, "we're through"
(What you mean when you say that you better go find somebody new?)
He stood there and asked me why, but all I could do was cry
I'm sorry I hurt you, the leader of the pack

He sort of smiled, then kissed me goodbye
The tears were beginning to show
As he drove away on that rainy night
I begged him to go slow, whether he heard
I'll never know (know, know, know, know, know, know, know)
Look out, look out, look out

I felt so helpless, what could I do?
Remembering all the things we'd been through
In school, they all stop and stare
I can't hide the tears, but I don't care
I'll never forget him, the leader of the pack

Ooh-ooh-ooh (gone, gone-gone-gone-gone-gone)
The leader of the pack, now he's gone (gone, gone-gone-gone-gone-gone)
The leader of the pack, now he's gone (gone, gone-gone-gone-gone-gone)
the leader of the pack, now he's gone (gone, gone-gone-gone-gone-gone)

Lyrics:


My folks were always putting him down
They said he came from the wrong side of town
They told me he was bad
But I knew he was sad
That's why I fell for...

One day my dad said find someone new
I had to tell my Jim we were through
He stood there and asked me why
But all I could do was cry
I'm sorry I hurt you...

He sort of smiled and kissed me goodbye
The tears were beginning to show
And as he left me on that rainy night
I begged him to go slow
But whether he heard, I'll never know.

I felt so helpless what could I do?
Remembering all the things we'd been through
At school they all stop and stare
I can't hide the tears, but I don't care
I'll never forget you...

The leader of the pack, now he's gone
The leader of the pack, now he's gone
The leader of the pack, now he's gone

I'll never forget him, the leader of the pack

the leader of the pack now he's gone

Jimmy couldn't have been a very hard core biker if he hung out at the candy store.

early culyer

murder Inc. The Hitman Hangout was a candy store according to Henry Hill so don't underestimate the local candy store.

Perzonne

candy store is slang for pill mill, aka where you could pick up oxys, percs, hydros, bars, anything else theses kids could want

Carlos Aguilar

Why aren't they in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Seriously, their songs were like mini-operas, full of drama and heartbreak, and that lead singer had quite a powerful voice to be so young. Remember (Walking in the Sand), Leader of the Pack, Give Him a Great Big Kiss, Out in the Streets, I Can Never Go Home Anymore ... teen angst at its best.

Dimebag Darrell

I never realized The Shangri-Las were basically a singing comedy troupe until now.

I agree I love this song 42 years old I remember hearing this on my mom's records and stereo players growing up
