Be-Bop-a-Lula
Gene Vincent Lyrics


Well be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby
Be-bop-a-Lula I don't mean maybe
Be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby
Be-bop-a-Lula I don't mean maybe
Be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby doll
My baby doll, my baby doll

Well she's the girl in the red blue jeans
She's the queen of all the teens
She's the one that I know
She's the woman that loves me so

Say be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby
Be-bop-a-Lula I don't mean maybe
Be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby doll
My baby doll, my baby doll
Let's rock!

Well now she's the one that's got that beat
She's the woman with the flyin' feet
She's the one that walks around the store
She's the one that gets more more more

Be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby
Be-bop-a-Lula I don't mean maybe
Be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby doll
My baby doll, my baby doll
Let's rock again, now!

Well be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby
Be-bop-a-Lula I don't mean maybe
Be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby
Be-bop-a-Lula I don't mean maybe
Be-bop-a-Lula she's my baby doll
My baby doll, my baby doll

My grandfather used to sing this all the time, just suddenly lean back in is chair, look to my grandmother and go "be bop a lula she's my baby" and it never ceased to make her smile. He unfortunately died about three years ago from pneumonia. One lung was completely full of fluid and the ambulance was taking him to the hospital.


I had the stay back and keep the dog good, because he has separation anxienty and will howl and bark and whine all night if grandma is not there with him, but he'll be alright if I'm there at least. I get a call from my grandma and she just says that grandad was dying. I was in shock.


I walked out of the room and a friend of my brother's was there (my brother was away at the time) and I just told him what was happening. After about a minute I broke down and he just let me hug him because I needed to hug someone.


We had no car so my uncle came by to pick me up and take me to the hospital. I saw my grandad's corpse. His tongue was hanging out like in the cartoons because they were trying to insert a pipe to help him breathe before he died, and didn't have enough time to fix it up.


Turns out that the reason he died was that the lung that didn't have pneumonia collapsed under the pressure of keeping the entire body going. If he didn't spend his entire life smoking (he quit only a few years before) he would have survived. But because he smoked his lungs were just too weak to handle that kind of stress. It wasn't the pneumonia that got him, it was cigarettes.


Listen here kids! DON'T FUCKING SMOKE! It might feel nice! It might take the stress away! But you will suffer in the future because of it! In the future, fifty years down the line, you will find your old habit is causing everything you've built up in your life to come crashing down around you.

If you were a teenage rockin' buck back in the 50's when this came out, you heard something never heard before. It WAS rock n' roll!

Greasers...yeah boy!

@Yakovism and what punk tried to recapture (and by now most recognize it did) with its raw, stripped-down and rhythm-centered arrangements as well as its aura of danger, pure sonic passion, and do-it-yourself work ethic!

Teens loved it! Parents not so much!

Bill Haley and the Comets weren't black. You know, things overlap as they change.

I love it! When my daughter was barely walking at a year old, she would dance to this and sing.  She is now 59 years old and still a beautiful blond.

One of the most iconic rock n roll records ever made.Someone said average song. I disagree. You have to listen to this in context with the time. The slap back echo was thrilling, there was more restrained power from the upright bass and brush hit snare than any future bombast by the likes of Led Zeppelin, say (I like Zeppelin hugely but stand by this statement). Then there was Cliff Gallup, an extraordinary guitar player who remains a great favourite and inspiration for Jeff Beck. Elvis was making rock a billy records with a similar line up (Thats alright Mama, Mystery Train, Milk Cow Blues) until he descended into the swamp of irrelevance for which he became a global phenomenon. For real rock n roll we are left with a few timeless examples like this. One more note about Gene´s voice: I spent some time on the road with him, and played Be Bop Alula and many others every night. He had many issues, was occasionally very difficult BUT he had one of THE great rock n roll voices. Eddie Cochran had the edge on many because he wrote songs, as did Buddy Holly. Now these are 2 guys I would like to hear today had they lived.
