Go Jimmy Go
Jimmy Clanton Lyrics


I told her when it comes to talking
I'm the sweetest sweet talker in the world
Well, she said you better start talking
If you want me to be your girl
And she said, go, Jimmy, go, go, Jimmy, go
Well, I talked to her off the floor when she said
Go, Jimmy, go

I told when it comes to dancing
I'm the best young dancer in the land
Well, she looked at me with a twinkle in her eyes
And then she took my hand
And then she said, go, Jimmy, go, go, Jimmy, go
Well, I talked to her off the floor when she said
Go, Jimmy, go

And she said, go, Jimmy, go, go, Jimmy, go
Well, I talked to her off the floor when she said
Go, Jimmy, go
I told her when it comes to kissing
I ain't nothing but a kissing fool
She started to giggle when I told her
That I'd teach her things she'd never learn in school

And she said, go, Jimmy, go, go, Jimmy, go
Well, I talked her off the floor when she said
Go, Jimmy, go, go, Jimmy, go, go, Jimmy, go

I had such a huge crush on this little guy when I was in high school. I thought he had the coolest hair! I still remember how quickly the dance floor would fill up when this hoppin' little tune hit the speakers. I hear it while typing this and I'm actually bouncing along with the beat. Thank you very much!

"He told her when it comes to kissin' he was nuthin but a kissin' fool. She started to giggle & he told her he'd teach her things she never learned in school". Go Jimmy Go!! Priceless oldies lyrics
