Reet Petite
Jackie Wilson Lyrics


Well, lookabell, lookabell, lookabell, lookabell
Oooh, weee
Lookabell, lookabell, lookabell
Oooh, weee
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ooh wee

Well, she's so fine, fine, fine
She's so fine, fa fa fine
She's so fine
She's so fine, fine, fine
She's really sweet, the kindest girl you ever want to meet

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Rrrr Reet Petite, the finest girl you ever want to meet

Well, have you ever seen a girl for whom your soul you'd give?
For whom you'd fight for, die for, pray to God you'd lie for?
She's so fine, she's so fine, she's really sweet the finest girl
You ever want to meet

Well, she really fills her clothes
From her head to toe
I want the world to know
I love her, love her so
She's alright, she's alright
She's alright
She loves me day and night

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Rrrr Reet Petite the finest girl you ever want to meet
Oh

Well, she's like honey from a bee
And like bees from a tree, I love her, need her
She bez' so buzzin'

She's alright, she's got what it takes
She's got what it takes and to me she really rates
Well, oh now she's my cutie, my tutti frutti
My heart, my love, my bathin' beauty, she's alright
She's got just what it takes, she's got what it takes
And to me she a-really rates

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Rrr
Reet Petite the finest girl you ever want to meet
Rrr
Reet Petite the finest girl you ever want to meet
Rrr
Reet Petite the finest girl you ever want to meet

"In his first hit, "Reet Petite," he needed just 45 seconds to run through most of the vocal tricks of 1957 — from stuttering syllables to 'ooo, ah, ooo, ah, oooo-wee' to 'she's so fii-ii-ii-ii-ine' — and he nailed them all."
