Poor Side Of Town Lyrics
ROCKIN' PNEUMONIA AND THE BOOGIE WOOGIE FLU
Johnny Rivers
(J. Vincent / H. Smith)

I wanna jump but I'm afraid I'll fall
I wanna holler but the joint's too small
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Call some other's baby that ain't all
I wanna kiss her but she's way too tall
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I wanna squeeze her but I'm way too low
I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

------ piano ------

I wanna squeeze her but I'm way too low
I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Baby comin' now I'm hurryin' home
I know she's leavin' cause I'm takin' too long
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu
