Bo Diddley Lyrics

by Bob Seger

Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley, have you heard
Mama gonna buy you a mockingbird
If that mockingbird don't sing
She gonna buy you a diamond ring

If that diamond ring don't shine
Baby gonna take it to a private eye
If that private eye can't see
He gonna have to come an talk to me

Said, hey Bo Diddley
Hey, now Bo Diddley
Hey, Bo Diddley

I walked 47 miles of barbed wire
Use a cobra snake for a necktie
Got a brand new house on the roadside child
Made out of rattlesnake hide

Brand new chimney on top
Made out of human skulls
Come and take a little walk with me Arlene
Tell me who do you love?

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Arlene took me by my hand
Said, "Cool it Robert, you know, you're my man"

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Night was dark the sky was blue
Down the alley we was swingin' through
Lord, I heard just what I seen

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?
