"Long Tall Sally" as written by and Jimmy (usa Duncan....
Gonna tell Aunt Mary 'bout Uncle John
He claim he has the misery but he's havin' a lot of fun
Oh baby, yeah baby, woo
Havin' me some fun tonight, yeah

Well long, tall Sally
She's built for speed, she got
Everything that Uncle John need, oh baby
Yeah baby, woo baby
Havin' me some fun tonight, yeah

Well, I saw Uncle John with long tall Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin' and he ducked back in the alley oh baby
Yeah baby, woo baby
Havin' me some fun tonight, yeah, ow

Well, long, tall Sally
She's built for speed, she got
Everything that Uncle John need, oh baby
Yeah baby, woo baby
Havin' me some fun tonight, yeah

Well, I saw Uncle John with bald-head Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin' and he ducked back in the alley, oh, baby
Yeah baby, woo, baby
Havin' me some fun tonight, yeah

We gonna have some fun tonight
We gonna have some fun tonight, woo
Have some fun tonight, everything's all right
Have some fun, have me some fun tonight

    General CommentThis song alludes to casual gay sex. Uncle John is a euphemism for Little Richard's penis, and Mary and Sally are sexual rivals. Obviously very risque for the 1950's, hense the subterfuge

    General Commentno doubt that uncle john is his wang, I thought the last verse was alluding that he had uncle john "in" sally and then he had hurry up put it back in his pants. "ducked in the valley.
