Schwa Lyrics

Bad Lee Roy Brown

Lyricist: Jim Croce
Vocalist: John Mullins
Well ole south side of Chicago is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there you better just beware
of a man named Leroy Brown
Now Leroy's more than trouble, you see he stand about 6 foot 4
All the downtown ladies call him treetop lover
All the men just call him sir

And its bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy he's a gambler, and he likes his fancy clothes
And he liked to wave his diamond rings under everybody's nose
He got a custom Continental, he got an El-Dorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe


Well Friday but a week ago, Leroy shootin dice
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl named a Doris
And oh that girl looked nice
Well he cast his eyes upon her and the trouble soon began
And Leroy Brown learned a lesson bout a messin
with the wife of a jealous man


Well the 2 men took to fighting
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
with a couple of pieces gone


Yeah he was badder than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog
