"Li'l Red Riding Hood" as written by and Ronald Blackwell....
Who's that I see walkin' in these woods?
Why, it's Little Red Riding Hood
Hey there Little Red Riding Hood
You sure are looking good
You're everything a big bad wolf could want
Listen to me
Little Red Riding Hood
I don't think little big girls should
Go walking in these spooky old woods alone

What big eyes you have
The kind of eyes that drive wolves mad
So just to see that you don't get chased
I think I ought to walk with you for a ways
What full lips you have
They're sure to lure someone bad
So until you get to grandma's place
I think you ought to walk with me and be safe
I'm gonna keep my sheep suit on
Until I'm sure that you've been shown
That I can be trusted walking with you alone

Little Red Riding Hood
I'd like to hold you if I could
But you might think I'm a big bad wolf so I won't
What a big heart I have
The better to love you with
Little Red Riding Hood
Even bad wolves can be good
I'll try to be satisfied just to walk close by your side
Maybe you'll see things my way before we get to grandma's place
Little Red Riding Hood
You sure are looking good
You're everything that a big bad wolf could want
Owooooooo I mean baaaaaa!

    General CommentDoes anybody even know about this song? I know that it's from the 60's but still.....it's a great song that can get stuck in your head. To me, the song is about the big bad wolf up to his trick of trying to get little red riding hood to trust him. The only thing is, since he's saying the facial features that attract guys-lips and eyes- it's about the wolf following little red rding hood to do bad to her

    My InterpretationWhat I got from the song was that Wolf loved Riding Hood, and wanted to disguise himself to get closer to her, so he wouldn't scare her away and ruining any chances he could have had. So he walks with her around, to protect her from the others she could attract, helping both of them.

    I think in the end, he will only give into his murderous instincts and kill her. Thus ruining himself for good.

    General CommentIt's about an man who wants to take a girl out; he has sex and a wild time in mind, but he doesn't want the to know. He wants her to think he is a gentleman. He know that at some point intheir relationship, he will have to show her the real him. That is if he wants to get to third base.

    General CommentI think its about a girl and a male friend who has romantic feelings for her is trying to protect her from the big bad wolf in the woods. I'd like to think that that's what this song is about, but there is one thing that throws that theory off. its the line that says 'I'm gonna keep my sheep suit on'.
