Bony Moronie

Bony Moronie

WRITING CREDITS:
Larry Williams (a.k.a., Dr. Feelgood)

 

I got a girl named Bony Moronie.
She's as skinny as a stick of macaroni.
Oughtta see her rock n roll with her blue jeans on.
She's not very fat, just skin and bone,
but I love her, and she loves me.
Oh how happy now we can be,
makin' love underneath the apple tree.
 
Well I told her mama and her papa, too,
just exactly what I wanna do:
I wanna get married on a night in June
and rock n roll by the light of the silvery moon
'cause I love her, and she loves me.
Oh how happy now we can be,
makin' love underneath the apple tree.
 
She's my one and only; she's my hearts desire.
She's a real upsetter; she's a real live wire,
Everybody turns when my baby walks by.
She's something to see; she really catches the eye.
That's why I love her, and she loves me.
Oh how happy now we can be,
makin' love underneath the apple tree.
