97 – The Everly Brothers – Bird dog (1958)

Esta vem a ser a nossa última música do ano de 1958. Novamente, Boudleaux Bryant escreve outro sucesso pros Everly Brothers. Foi lançada pela Cadence Records, num compacto simples, em 28 de Julho de 1958, tendo Claudette no lado A.

A gravação dos Everly Brothers chegou ao número 1 dos charts de country, chegou ao número 2 do R&B e dos charts americanos.

Chegou também ao número 1 na Austrália, Canada e Grã-Bretanha.

A letra:

Johnny is a joker (he's a bird)
A very funny joker (he's a bird)
But when he jokes my honey (he's a dog)
His jokin' ain't so funny (what a dog)
Johnny is a joker that's a'tryin' to steal my honey (he's a bird dog)
Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
He sings the sweetest love song (ya ever heard)
But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
To me he's just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby (he's a bird dog)
Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own
Johnny kissed the teacher (he's a bird)
He tiptoed up to reach her (he's a bird)
Well he's the teacher's pet now (he's a dog)
What he wants he's been gettin' now (what a dog)
He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he's a bird dog)
Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own
He's a bird
