"Boom Boom" as written by Riccardo Ballerini, Michele Chieregato, Stefano Montin, Thomas Beecher Hooker and Roberto Turatti....
Boom, boom, boom, boom.
I'm gonna shoot you right down,
Knock you off of your feet,
And take you home with me.
Put you in my house.
Boom, boom, boom, boom.

Boom, boom, boom, boom.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
I love to see you strut
When you're walking to me.
When you're talking to me,
That knocks me out.

Boom, boom, boom, boom.
You know I like it like that,
With your baby-talk,
Oh and the way that you walk.
You know it knocks me right down,
Knocks me off of my feet.

Boom, boom, boom, boom.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
How, how, how, how.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Now, now, now, now.

    General CommentThis is my favorite John lee hooker song. I always get this song stuck in my head. Actually this is my favorite blues song of all time. I think it's the first blues song I've ever heard to get me into liking the blues.

    My OpinionThe story of the waitress/bartender seems strange to me. John Lee Hooker arrived in Detroit in
    1943, and that year he married two women, Alma Hopes and Sarah Jones. In late 1944, he married the sixteen year old Maude Mathis by whom he had 5 children, and with whom he remained for 25 years until 1969. The woman at the bar, according to some is called Willa, Willow according to others, and still others say Luilla. What is strange is that around 1961, or when the song was released, at the home of John there was almost a crowd: his wife and 5 children. Could John take home also Willa/Willow/Luilla? In my opinion "boom boom" is a classic of blues, and inspired the infamous reggae chart Snow - informer. Snow made a discussed parody while singing
    "a licky boom boom down".
