Wooly Bully!
Sam the Sham

"The lyrics of "Wooly Bully" were hard to understand, and some radio stations banned it, fearing that the words were suggestive. They weren't of course, and the record went on to sell more than three million copies. It was nominated for a Grammy award and was named 'Record of the Year' by Billboard Magazine in 1965.

The lyrics to Wooly Bully actually were:
Uno, dos, one, two, tres, quatro
Matty told Hatty about a thing she saw.
Had two big horns and a wooly jaw.

Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.
Hatty told Matty, "Let's don't take no chance.
Let's not be L-seven, come and learn to dance."
Wooly bully, wooly bully
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.
Matty told Hatty, "That's the thing to do.
Get you someone really to pull the wool with you."
Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Sam would go on to become a non-denominational bible teacher, in English and Spanish in a Federal institution. He would still perform the old songs, but only if he could do some of his gospel tunes too. He described his gospel music as "street gospel".

Thanks again Matty. I'll be lookin' for this one.... I found it suggestive.
