Pretty Thing
Bo Diddley Lyrics


You pretty thing
Let me buy you a wedding ring
Let me hear the choir sing
Oh, you pretty thing

You pretty thing
Let me walk you down the aisle
Darling, wear a lovely smile
Oh, you pretty thing
Let me kiss you gentle
Squeeze and hold you tight
Let me give all my love
The rest of my life

You pretty thing
Let me hold you by my side
And become my blushing bride
You pretty thing
Pretty thing
Let me dedicate my life
You will always be my wife
Oh, you pretty thing

​@Michael Bauers If you go up to the average middle age (35 to 45) white man or woman and ask who is one of the most influential person to rock and roll they may say Elvis, Buddy Holly, Beatles, Rollingstone, Jimmy Hendrix, Zeppelin etc

If you go up to the average middle age (35 to 45) black man or woman and ask who is one of the most influential person to rock and roll they may say...."I don't listen to rock n roll. I don't know?".

I know this because I've done this survey with both my family and people on the street. Don't get me started with Blacks under the age of 35 - 20. Most middle age blacks do not know rock n roll was started by blacks riffing of Baptist choir music they learned in church overlaid with stories of everyday life growing up poor in the south and dealing with all the issues of the 40's 50's 60's.

The people who are keeping black music history alive isn't mainstream black entertainment. It is mainstream white entertainment like Martin Scorsese using Bo Diddley piece in the Wolf of Wallstreet. Not only does this keep a historical American father of Rock n Roll music alive for the next generation but Scorsese's is paying money to any of Diddley descendants still alive.

Is Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Ice T, Snoop dog, Drake, Lil Wayne, 69 mafia etc etc doing the same? Rapper's long protested to be included in being inducted in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

You pretty thing,
Let me buy you a wedding ring,
Let me hear the choir sing,
Oh you pretty thing.
You pretty thing,
Let me walk you down the aisle,
Darling, it's where our love is found,
Oh you pretty thing.
Let me kiss you gentle,
Squeeze and hold you tight,
Let me give all my love,
The rest of my life.
You pretty thing,
Let me hold you by my side,
And become my blushing bride,
You pretty thing,
Pretty thing,
Let me dedicate my life,
You will always be my wife,
Oh you pretty thing.
