Bad Bad Leroy Brown

Lyrics/Music: Jim Croce

Well the South side of Chicago
Is the baddest part o' town
And if you go down there
You better just beware
Of a man name o' Leroy Brown

Now Leroy more than trouble
You see he stand 'bout six foot four
All the downtown ladies call him 'treetop lover'
All the men just call him 'sir'

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than ol' King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy he a gambler
And he like his fancy clothes
And he like to wave 'em diamond rings
Upon-a everybody's nose

He got a custom Continental
He got an El Dorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe, yeah

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
A-badder than ol' King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Well it were Friday 'bout a week ago
Leroy shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar
Sat a girl named Doris
And ooh that girl looked nice
Well he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
And Leroy Brown he learned a lesson
'Bout messin' with the wife of a jealous man

And it's bad, bad Leroy brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than ol' King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Well them two mens took to fightin'
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple o' pieces gone

And its bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than ol' King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

(repeat)
Yes, he-a badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog
