Thirteen Women
Bill Haley & His Comets Lyrics


Last night I was dreaming, dreamed about the H-bomb
Well, the bomb went off and I was caught
I was the only man on the ground
There was a-thirteen women and only one man in town
Thirteen women and only one man in town
And as funny as it may be
The one and only man in town was me
Well, thirteen woman and me the only man around

I had two girls every morning
Seeing that I was well fed
And believe you me, one sweetened my tea
While another one buttered my bread
Two girls gave me my money
Two girls made me my clothes
And another sweet thing, bought me a diamond ring
About forty carats I suppose
Well, thirteen women and only one man in town
There was a-thirteen women and only one man in town
It was something I can't forget
Because I think of those thirteen women yet
Well, thirteen woman and only one man around

I had three girls dancing the mambo
Three girls balling the jack
And all of the rest really did their best
Boy, they sure were a lively pack
I thought I was in heaven
And all of these angels were mine
But I woke up and ended the dream
'Cause I had to get to work on time
Well, a-thirteen women and only one man in town
There was a-thirteen women and only one man in town
No, I can't tell you where I've been
'Cause I kind of think that someday I'll go back again
To those thirteen women and me the only man around
Well, a-thirteen women and me the only man around
Well, a-thirteen women and me the only man around

A rock 'n' roll masterpiece.
The guitarist is a badass.
If you can't dig this, you can't dig nothin'.

Danny Cedrone, who played guitar on this track was paid $21 and was dead a few weeks later. He never knew of the record's success.

In my humble opinion this is the BEST track Bill did. Dark, moody and mysterious but still rock 'n' roll. Still listening in 2020.

@Nicholas Wiltshire no long gone. when i was a little kid in the 50's my mother liked rock and roll and would buy us records and if i had enough money somehow i could buy a record at the local drug store for 89 cents each.

Nicholas Wiltshire

@steve perry Oh wow, do you still have the 45's?? They must be collector's items now.

steve perry

@Nicholas Wiltshire we had several bill haley 45's and 13 women was on the flip side of one of them and they were on the decca label.

Nicholas Wiltshire

@steve perry We owned a 78 with Rock Around the Clock on the A side and Calling All Comets (an instrumental) on the flip side. I've only known 13 Women on my late Dad's LP.

steve perry

i think i remember it being the flip side of "rock around the clock '.
