Oh Why?
Little Richard Lyrics


I dreamed I was arrested
Charged with a crime
Forgot to plead innocent
'Cause darling, you're not mine

Oh, why?
Why should it happen to me?
Well, I'm cryin', "mercy
Have mercy on me"
The policeman said maybe
The judge he can agree
The jury keep on guessing
But the DA says it's me

Oh, why?
Why should it happen to me?
Well, I'm cryin', "mercy
Have mercy on me"

The lawyer said, "plead guilty
And try to cop a plea"
But why should I try plead guilty
When you don't belongs to me?

Oh, why?
Why should it happen to me?
Well, I'm cryin', "have mercy
Have mercy on me"

The policeman said maybe
The judge he can agree
The jury keep on guessing
But the DA says it's me

Oh, why?
Why should it happen to me?
Well, I'm cryin', "mercy
Have mercy on me"

The extra added echo ruins the original dynamics of this track. There is another version on You Tube that hasn't been artifically enhanced.

Sounds like he was a Fat's Domino fan ...

John Belway

Umh Umh Uhmh!

Chinmay

This sounds a lot like Heartbreak Hotel by Elvis.
