Jackie Wilson said
It was Reet Petite
Kinda love you got
Knock me off my feet
Let it all hang out
Oh, let it all hang out
And you know
I'm so wired up
Don't need no coffee in my cup
Let it all hang out
Let it all hang out

Ding a ling a ling
Ding a ling a ling ding
Ding a ling a ling
Ding a ling a ling ding
Do da do da
I'm in heaven, I'm in heaven
I'm in heaven, when you smile
When you smile, when you smile
When you smile
And when you walk
Across the room
You make my heart go
Boom boom boom
Let it all hang out
Baby, let it all hang out
And every time
You look that way
Honey child, you make my day
Let it all hang out
Like the man said let it all hang out

Ding a ling a ling
Ding a ling a ling ding
Ding a ling a ling
Ding a ling a ling ding
Do da do da
I'm in heaven, I'm in heaven
I'm in heaven, when you smile
When you smile
I'm in heaven, I'm in heaven
I'm in heaven, when you smile
One more time
I'm in heaven, I'm in heaven
I'm in heaven, when you smile
When you smile

    Good lord have mercy.

    This is one of those songs, that I love blaring in the car. Especially on those sunny days, where it's ideal to roll down the windows.

    General CommentThis one just makes you instantly break out in a smile and gives you the urge to lean your head back and laugh out loud for no reason.

    General CommentA little sidebar here, Jackie Wilson is a rather famous singer, especially around Van's time. You probably know him from the song (Taking Me) Higher and Higher. However, that's not to say any of you don't know who Jackie is. Just in case, y'know.

    General CommentWow, thanks, always thought it was about Jocky Wilson! (One for the Dexy's fans!)

    General CommentThat may be due to the researcher who arranged for a huge picture of Jocky Wilson (tubby Scottish darts player) to loom over the stage when they played this on Top of the Pops - classic moment.
