At My Front Door
Pat Boone Lyrics


Crazy little mama come knocking, knocking at my front door door door
Crazy little mama come knocking, knocking at my front door
Crazy little mama come knock, knock, knocking, just like she did before
Woke up this morning with a feeling of despair looking for my baby and she wasn't there
Heard someone knocking and much to my surprise
There stood my baby looking in my eyes
Crazy little mama come knock, knock, knocking, just like she did before

[Chorus]
If you got a little mama and ya want to keep her neat
Keep your little mama off my street
Same thing will happen like it did before
She'll come knock, knock, knocking at my door

Crazy little mama come knock, knock, knocking, just like she did before

[Chorus]

Crazy little mama come knock, knock, knocking, just like she did before
Crazy little mama come knocking, knocking at my front door door door
Crazy little mama come knocking, knocking at my front door
Crazy little mama come knock, knock, knocking, just like she did before

[Chorus]

Crazy little mama come knock, knock, knocking, just like she did before
Crazy little mama come knock, knock, knocking, just like she did before

Actually it's not too bad (it's the first time I've heard it). Ace Cannon on sax?

ShaNaNa does a really good version of this, too.

I think much of the criticism toward Boone's covers derives from the fact that his recordings sound so much cleaner than the originals recorded in a closet-like studio. But that is more a question of recording facilities than musicality. Boone was a very good singer, with a cleaner voice than many black singers (and also white ones). But that it is not necessarily a disadvantage: it's more a question of style. And he has style, in my opinion. One wonders though if his choice of songs was always the right one: but if he made money out of it, so he was right.

Some of the on-line stations (like Sirrus) play a mix of pop covers as well as the original R & B versions. Here in the southwest, we have an A. M. station that plays both as well. Many folks who grew up in that early 50s pop sound (right before Rock and Roll) have fond memories of those pop performers...Pat Boone, Gale Storm, Georgia Gibbs) Georgia even did a version of Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire" !

LOL I would be one of those "not everyone"....I like Pat's version here! As a matter of fact I bought it on 45 as well as "Tutti Frutti" :-) I really think that comparing original R & B versions to these Pop covers is comparing apples to oranges....Each in their own right had their own merit. As much as I loved Lavern Baker's "Tweedle Dee" I also loved Georgia Gibb's pop version as well...Each had it's different style. (jmo)
