Listened & danced to my mom & dads old records growing up and this was a fun favorite




Original singer Jack Ely passed
hosted.ap.org...

Song even had a little J Edgar Hoover interest (silly silly)???



Does anyone else enjoy this ol’ song?

Lyrics: Louie Louie, oh no
Sayin' we gotta go, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Said Louie Louie, oh baby
Said we gotta go

A fine little girl, she waits for me
Catch a ship across the sea
Sail that ship about, all alone
Never know if I make it home

Louie Louie, oh no no no
Sayin' we gotta go, oh no
Said Louie Louie, oh baby
Said we gotta go

Three nights and days I sail the sea
Think of girl, all constantly
On that ship I dream she's there
I smell the rose in her hair

Louie Louie, oh no
Sayin' we gotta go, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Said Louie Louie, oh baby
Said we gotta go
Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!

See, see Jamaica, the moon above
It won't be long, me see me love
Take her in my arms again
I'll tell her I'll never leave again

Louie Louie, oh no
Sayin' we gotta go, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Said Louie Louie, oh baby
Said we gotta go

I said we gotta go now
Let's take this on outta here
Let's go!

Rest In Peace

I saw this on the news yesterday I assumed due to the popularity of the song that someone must have already posted it.

I always loved this song, it brings smiles without fail.

Being from the west coast, this Kingsman version was not so popular. Paul Revere and the Raiders did the version that topped the charts out here. With that openning saxaphone honking. A little slower, more soulful I think. It was only later, like a decade or so, that the Kingsmen version began playing on the 'classic rock' shows that I even heard Ely version.

RIP Jack

There's a fairly awesome rock n roll legend associated with this song, around halfway through the track the drummer dropped one of his sticks and shouted 'f***' as he thought he'd screwed up the recording but recovered in time and didn't miss a beat


If you listen carefully you can hear it....

Actually written and sung by writer of the tune Richard Berry. Many bands in the Great North West of the Country covered the song around the same time the Kingsman's recorded theirs.

II think The Kingsman's version Rules, loved it since the day it came out, still have the vinyl.

That's not what he's REALLY singing.


Quintessential garage rock.
