Long Tall Sally

download

(Johnson / Penniman)


Informação:

Long Tall Sally foi escrita por Enotris Johnson, Robert (Bumps) Blackwell e Richard Penniman (Little Richard) em 1956.
Little Richard afirma ter escrito a canção numa paragem Greyhound em Macon, na Georgia. Os títulos originalmente considerados para a canção foram The Thing e Bald-Headed Sally. O lançamento em single de Little Richard (Specialty 572) encimou a tabela de rhythm & blues da Billboard durante seis semanas e atingiu o 6º lugar na tabela Top 100. Pat Boone teve uma versão bem sucedida de Long Tall Sally (Dot 15457) em 1956 que alcançou o 8º lugar na tabela Top 100.

 

Elvis gravou Long Tall Sally em 2 de Setembro de 1956 no Radio Recorders. O take 4 foi o escolhido pela RCA para lançamento. Apenas Enotris Johnson foi apontado como sendo o compositor no LP Elvis. Elvis cantou Long Tall Sally no seu especial televisivo de 1973, Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii.

 

Letra:
 

Gonna tell Aunt Mary 'bout Uncle John
He claims he has the blues but he has a lotta fun
Oh baby, yeah baby, whoo-oo-oo-oo, baby
Havin' me some fun tonight, yeah well!

 

1. Well, long tall Sally, she's really sweet

She's got everything Uncle John needs

Oh baby, yeah baby, whoo-oo-oo-oo, baby

Havin' me some fun tonight


2. Well, I saw uncle John with bald head Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin' and he ducked back in the alley
Oh baby, yes baby, whoo-oo-oo-oo, baby
Havin' me some fun tonight

 

1. 2. (repete)


Have some fun tonight, have some fun tonight
Have some fun tonight
Everything's all right
Have some fun and have
some fun tonight
