The 'Original' Bad Boys from Boston: The J. Geils Band's famous live version, with front-man Peter Wolf's spoken, rap-like, intro to one of their greatest hits. It's on their 1976 landmark "Blow Your Face Out" live album which came out a good 3 years before the first Hip-Hop song "Rapper's Delight" landed on the Billboard charts. And by the way: No one is claiming that this was the first "Rap," all I was saying was that this song came out a few years before Rap slipped into the mainstream. I'm well aware that Rap has been around for a long time, it just did not get popular on the national level until the 1980's. Therefore, this song was no doubt ahead of it's time!

Wolf was always a crazy lead singer and showman. He's known for his funny stories and epic introductions. He used to be a radio DJ for the beloved, and unfortunately now extinct, 104.1 WBCN Boston station during the 1960's before he joined the band. His radio personality was the "Woofa Goofa Mama Toofa." This song is certainly a classic rock staple and years ahead of its time. Heck, it's even "genres" ahead of it's time! Only so many songs can claim such a unique feat!

Lyrics:

(Spoken)

Now hold on, this song has a little introduction to it
It ain't supposed to be sad, though you might feel it that way
It's a song about desperation
Every now and then we do get desperate

This is a song about L-O-V-E
And if you abuse it, yer gonna lose it
And if you lose it, yer gonna abuse it
And if you abuse it, you ain't going to be able to choose it
'Cause you ain't going to have it further on down the line
Things ain't going to be so fine
Yer going to be sitting there on your little machine
Tryin' to look and keep it clean
You're going to be home playing bingo all night all alone
That's why you're sittin' there by the telephone
And you know that she ain't going to call you!

So you put on the TV and you're watchin' Johnny Carson
Segueing right into the "Tomorrow Show"
But that don't got the go
So you turn it off, ya turn on the radio
The radio don't seem to get the click
So you say "Hey man, I can't lickety split"
You start to open up a little book
And there's somethin' there you got to overlook
And you say "Baby!
You know there's somethin' on my mind!"
You say "Baby there's somethin' on my mind!"
I know that you're home, and I know you ain't all alone!"
So you start walking over to her house
You get over to her house
And you walk over to her door and you start poundin' on her door
And you say "Open up the door bitch
This is Woofa Goofa with the green teeth, let me in!"

Well, she opens up the door and then you just kinda walk up to her And say "Baby",
(Say Baby!)
You look up, way up at her green mascara
And you say "Oh my darlin',
You know her and me was at the party as friends
Do not believe what they say
That's only gossip that they tellin' ya down the wisecracker line"
You say "Darlin'!"
Take your big curls and just squeeze them down Rotumba"
What's the name of that chick with the long hair?
(Rapunzel!)
I'd say "Hey Rapunzel! Hahaha
Hey Raputa!
(Raputa the Buta!)
Hey Raputa the Buta!
Flip me down your hair and let me climb up to the ladder of your love!"
'Cause this is Woofa Goofa sayin' to ya
"Love comes once and when it comes you better grab it fast
'Cause sometimes the love you grab ain't going to last
And I believe I musta!
You know I think I musta!!
You know baby I think I musta!!!
You know I think I musta!!!!!
I Musta Got Lost!!!!!!

(Sung)

Never thought about tomorrow
Seemed like a long time to come
How could I be so blind, baby
Not to see you were the one

I let you slip on from me baby
I let you walk on by
Refused the love you had for me
I refused the love and I let it die

Musta got lost
Musta got lost
Musta got lost -
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost
Musta got lost
Gave away them days you were mine

Don't know why I let you leave me
Honey, I don't know
Say it's hard to see love coming baby
But honey I have a way of seeing it go

Musta got lost!
Musta got lost!
Musta got lost -
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost!
I got lost!
Givin' away the days you were mine

Love can be a sweet thing
Girl, I just don't understand
Made a game outta lovin' you
And now I hold the losing hand

Musta got lost
Musta got lost
Musta got lost -
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost
I got lost, girl
Givin' away the days you were mine

I just don't understand it, I just don't understand it
I just don't understand it

And I musta got lost
Musta got lost
Musta got lost -
Somewhere down the line, hey!
Musta got lost, baby!
I got lost, girl!
Givin' away them days you were mine
Musta got lost
I got lost
Musta got lost -
Somewhere down the line
Musta got lost
Oh I got lost, girl
Givin' away the days you were mine

Oooh I got lost!
Double crossed
You're lovin' - give it to me on the organ!
I said you're love
Got me higher than I ever been lifted before
I said you're love
Got me higher than I ever been lifted -
Ooooooooh!
