ChorusAnd he bad, bad Leroy Brown The baddest man in the whole damned town Badder than old King Kong
Andmeaner than a junkyard Now Leroy, he a gambler And he like his fancy clothes And he like to wave his diamond rings In front of everybody's nose He got a custom Continental He got an Eldorado too He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun He got a razor in his shoe
CNow Friday 'bout a week ago Leroy shootin' dice And at the edge of the bar sat a girl name Doris And oo, that girl looked nice Well he cast his eyes upon her And the trouble soon began Leroy Brown learned a lesson 'bout messin' With the wife of a jealous man
CWell the two men took to fighting And when they pulled them from the floor Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle With a couple of pieces gone.
