Lyrics Edit

Well the south side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there, you better just beware
Of a man name of Leroy Brown

Now Leroy more than trouble
You see he stand about six feet four
All the downtown ladies call him: "treetop lover"
All the mens just call him Sir

He's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Leroy he a gambler
And he like his fancy clothes
He like to wave his diamond ring(s)
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

Yeah He's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder that old King Kong
And Meaner that a junkyard dog

Well Friday - 'bout a week ago
Leroy shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar, sat a girl name of Doris
And ooh that girl looked nice

Well he laid his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
And Leroy Brown he learned a lesson 'bout messin'
With the wife of a jealous man

Yeah He's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
And Meaner than a junkyard dog

Well the two men took to fightin'
And when they pulled them from the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone

Yeah He's bad, bad Leroy Brown
Baddest man in the whole damn town
Badder than old King Kong
And Meaner than a junkyard dog
