Dedication Song
Freddy Cannon Lyrics


The Dedication" (performed by Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon in 1965, but we
completely changed most of the lyrics without Boom Boom's permission)


Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

This song goes out to Bobby, dedicated from Sue,
She just wants him to know, her love for him is true.
And this song goes out to Soraya, dedicated from Nick,
He would like another tour of the pyramids!

Don't touch that dial,
Leave it on the station,
I'm going to make, another Dedication

Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

This song goes out to Mary, dedicated from Bryce
He's so sorry they had a fight and he promises he'll be nice.
And this song goes out to Neko, dedicated from Dave,
He just wants her to know that after Bronson she's the fave!

Don't touch that dial,
Leave it on the station,
I'm going to make, another Dedication

Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

This goes out to all the kids who've come out to see one of our crummy show!
I'm talkin' about that guy I grabbed by the hair in San Francisco,
And that guy I put in a headlock in Moncton New Brunswick
And that chick I kicked in the ass, in fuck, was it Kamloops?

Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

This song goes out to CC, dedicated from Beez, (BEEZ: "That's ME!")
He just belched and he's so sorry that he's such a sleaze.
And this song goes out to Jenni, WHERE ARE YOU?, dedicated from Grant,
It'd be nice, if you would come, and pick up your pants!

Don't touch that dial,
Leave it on the station,
I'm going to make, another Dedication

Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

And this one goes out to the kid I beat with a mic stand in Atlanta (sorry)
And to my aunt and uncle in Albany I'm sorry I clogged up that toilet
And to that stupid skinhead in Lafayette!

Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

"The Dedication Song" was actually a hit in the spring of 1966, a few months after "Action," and the two of them together were not only among Freddy's greatest hits but also his last after 20 before these since 1959. Freddy would not chart again until 1981 when he put out "Let's Put The Fun Back In Rock 'n' Roll." Incredibly, THIS classic rocker missed the national Top 40, cresting at #41. "The Dedication Song" should have charted far higher, as it remains a soul-lifting delight even today.

"The Dedication Song" just missed the national Top 40 following it's debut in February 1966. Over it's six week chart run it peaked at #41 -- inxplicably -- because it is such a GREAT record. It was also Freddy's last to reach Billboard's Hot 100 national singles chart until 1981, when he came back with "Let's Put The Fun Back in Rock 'n' Roll." As it deals with radio dedications, it closes out the classic Reader's Digest CD box set "Dedicated To The One I Love."

This is GREAT-a real swinging tune with an infectious enthusiasm to it.This song,Action and Abigail Beecher are my favorite Freddy Cannon hits-ya can't beat em!

Being from Boston (Freddy Cannon's hometown), I recall that this record got quite a bit of airplay on the city's two top-40 stations at the time (WBZ and the old WMEX) in early 1966 (I was a young lad then!).

Ron Lavallee

B-side of this single was "Come On, Come On," another rockin' tune...Warner Bros really dropped the ball promoting his music...Were these songs ever on any album?

I'd have to say this is his best hit (it was way ahead of its time - this sound like something from the 1970s). I'm surprised it wasn't quite a bit bigger.

Kit Nelson

Why wasn't this a hit? I'm 67 and I've never heard it before. Wow!

Tumbipungi

Always one of my favorite songs.

Romulus Hill

He makes me wanna get up and dance
