TONGUE TIED
(Berry - Covay - Lewis)
WANDA JACKSON (CAPITOL LP CUT, 1960)

Oh, great good golly, he thrills me so
When the apple of my eye whispers in my ear
I get real speechless and I act so shy
And all I can say is neenie-neenie-ny
I get tongue tied, ooh
I get tongue tied, yeah
I go, well ah-ah-ah...
What I'm tryin' to say is
I love you, yeah!

I met him one day at the candy shop
My heart started poppin' like a popcorn pop
When he walked up and said, hi sweety pie
Well, all I could say is neenie-neenie-ny
I get tongue tied, ooh
I get tongue tied, yeah
I went, well ah-ah-ah-bah...
I love you, yeah!

I love him so and he loves me too
He's my flat top honey, stands six feet two
I get an itchy twitchy feeling
When he looks into my eyes
But all I can say is neenie-neenie-ny
I get tongue tied, ooh
I get tongue tied, yeah
I go... oh-wah-eh honey
I love you, yeah!

All I can say is neenie-neenie-ny
I get tongue tied, ooh
I get tongue tied, yeah
I go... oh-wah-eh honey... I wanna say...
