It's got to be you reading my letter
Not your hired hand
I don't know how to say it no better
I love you and the band

Never heard rockin' like you could
Howling like you can
It gets me thinking of Johnny B. Goode
But you know you ain't no man

When I heard you play I knew your
name should be changed
We're all dog panicked and you are to blame
Everybody ought to call you
bebe le strange
You look so insane
We gave you a name
bebe le strange

I wish I knew what you're really like
A touch so shy and fine
But the way you move with that guitar
Just gives me other signs

Here's my number give me a sign
Call me back if this gets through
bebe, bebe, bebe, bebe
I'd never say no to you

When I heard your song I knew your
name should be changed
Everybody ought to call you
bebe le strange
Under my skin you've got my mind
You're so insane
bebe's so strange
bebe le strange

    General CommentI seem to recall hearing that some guy sent Nancy Wilson a fan letter...and this was the result.

    Song MeaningSaw them live one summer and they said it was taken from a letter that they received from a girl that had seen them perform and the song is about the effect that they had on her.

    My InterpretationIt's almost like she is mocking someone who she thinks is conceited (another performer perhaps), so they gave him a nickname to make fun of him. Maybe he's one of those guys who likes to take on a wacky persona for the stage (someone like David Bowie or Alice Cooper) and she is mocking the pretension of his performance by calling him Bebe Le Strange. That said, she can't help feeling attracted to this person because of the fact that he's so weird and "out there," which is a thing that seems to work on some women.

    It could also just be a song about a fan letter they received.
