"Hang On Sloopy" as written by and Bert/farrell Russell....
Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on
Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on

Sloopy lives in a very bad part of town
And everybody else, tries to put my sloopy down
Sloopy I don't care, what your daddy do
'Cause you know sloopy, girl, I'm in love with you

And so I say now

Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on
Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on

Sloopy wears a red dress, yeah
?
But when sloopy wears that red dress, yeah
You know it gives me the chills

Sloopy when I see you walking,
Walking down the street
I say don't worry sloopy, girl
You belong to me

And so I say now

Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on
Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on
(yeah) (yeah) (yeah) (yeah)

Sloopy let your hair down, ooh
Let it hang down on me
Sloopy let your hair down, girl
Let it hang down on me, yeah

Come on sloopy (come on, come on)
Oh come on sloopy (come on, come on)
Oh come on sloopy (come on, come on)
Oh come on sloopy (come on, come on)

Well it feels so good (come on, come on)
You know it feels so good (come on, come on)
Well shake it, shake it, shake it sloopy (come on, come on)
Shake it, shake it, shake it yeah (come on, come on)

Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on
(yeah) (yeah) (yeah) (yeah)
Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on
(yeah) (yeah) (yeah) (yeah)
Hang on sloopy, sloopy hang on

    General CommentThis song is about a prostitute. And a man being in love with her...'sloopy i dont care what your daddy do' this means that the guy doesnt care how rich or wealthy she is..or what her background is like...sloopy lives on a bad side of town... the whole shake it shake it shake it chorus...maybe asking her to dance for him..? hey its just a theory..tell me what you think.

    General CommentI can't for the life of me understand how most of the free world has not figured this song out! It's not about a girl giving a guy a blow job...ewww! But it is most definitely about sex.

    It's about a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who falls in love with the guy singing the song. He has her get on top (a most excellent position, I highly recommend it)...uh, anyway. He says, let your hair down, let it HANG DOWN ON ME! How can anyone miss that. She's on top...she let's down her long hair and it falls down on him while they are makin' sweet love! It's awesome. And of course, "shake it, shake it, shake it baby" is double meaning...as in shake your hair AND shake your body as they have an orgasm. Ok, if you're a prude this might offend you, but I don't know why it's really kind of sweet if you ask me.

    But I think the folks who went and made it Ohio's State song would never want to acknowledge what the McCoys were really singing about.

    Oh Sloopy, let your hair hang down on me...as Austin Powers would say, YEAHHH BABY YEEAAAHHHH!Mark - Seattle
