Song title: Wooly Bully

(Domingo) by Sam the Sham and the Pharohas (MGM 13322), 1965

Wooly Bully

Uno, dos, one, two, tres, quatro
Matty told Hatty about a thing she saw.
Had two big fangs and a wooly jaw.
Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.
Hatty told Matty, ´Let´s don´t take no chance.
Let´s not be*L-seven*, come and learn to dance.´
Wooly bully, wooly bully
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.
Matty told Hatty, ´That´s the thing to do.
Get you someone really to pull the wool with you.´
Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.
