Wee Wee Hours
Chuck Berry Lyrics


In the wee, wee hours
That's when I think of you
In the wee, wee hours
That's when I think of you
You say, but yet I wonder
If your love was ever true

In a wee little room
I sit alone and think of you
In a wee little room
I sit alone and think of you
I wonder if you still remember
All the things we used to do

One little song
For a fading memory
One little song
For a fading memory
Of the one I really love
The only one for me

Extra fun fact to go along with number one song on that list -
Kieths "Wee Wee Hours" pick was specifically a respectful nod to jazz / blues pianist Johnnie Johnson, who actually wrote the music for this song and showed it to Chuck B., who then added lyrics to it.
Kieth had mad love for Johnnie Johnson, and the Wee Wee Hours was one of Keith's favorite songs that Johnnie Johnson and Chuck Berry collaborated on together.

@Jay Viviano
Yes. Johnnie Johnson was great, and integral to Chuck's sound and success (albeit Chuck was extremely talented, versatile and charismatic in his own right)!!!

Jay Viviano

@David Glowacki and @Shane Lane Yes. And thank you. It's nice to finally see people on a Chuck Berry thread acknowledge Johnnie Johnson.
He wrote the music for number of Chucks hits and collaborated with him between 1955 and 1966 yet most people in Chuck Berry world know nothing about him, so he never gets his proper due respect in that history or story
