"Hang On Sloopy" as written by Wes Farrell and Bert Russell....
Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on
Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on

Sloopy lives in a very bad part of town
And everybody there 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'm singing

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Sloopy let your hair down girl, let it run down on me
Sloopy let your hair down girl, let it run down on me

Come on Sloopy, come on, come on
Come on Sloopy, come on, come on
Well, come on Sloopy, come on, come on
Well, 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
Well shake it, shake it, shake it yeah
Yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentI've always thought (from age of 3) that Sloopy is a young girl on a rollercoaster. Half way through the ride she is thrown head first onto a big wheel and is hanging on till the firemen arrive.
    I could be wrong however!

    General CommentI think it's highly likely that Sloopy is a prostitute. The lyrics scream it if one can decode them. "Sloopy wears a red dress as old as the hill." Red Dress in songs is almost ubiquitous for a prostitute. As old as the hill seems to be referring to the world's oldest profession (funnily enough seen in other primate species when the concept of money has been introduced).

    Sloopy is a street walker, walkin walkin down the street. Don't worry Sloopy you belong to me, because I just bought you (prostitution is also a form of wage slavery).

    Sloopy is also on top, what used to be a reported favorite position of many Johns, b/c they would not experiment with many positions with their wives and explored mini-or tame-domination fantasies (think Don Draper).

    Well it feels so good, etc... No clue as to what that be referencing... (where's the sarcasm button on this thing?). Shake your tail feather, 'cause what's love got to do with it?

    General CommentIO! Go Bucks!

    Ohio - The only state with an offical rock song (passed in 1985).

    Why do we rock? Because nobody else does!
