Slippin' and Slidin'

Slippin' and Slidin'

Escrita por Richard Penniman, Al Collins, James Smith y Edwin Bocage

Interpretada por Little Richard (Specialty 572, 1956)

Uno de los últimos temas que, en enero de 1959, Holly grabó en su apartamento de Nueva York fue este "Slippin' and Slidin'", original de Little Richard y que Buddy registró varias veces con diferentes tempos. Esto dió lugar a varias versiones que, supervisadas por Norman Petty, llegaron al público a partir de 1963 bien dosificadas en distintos formatos.

Slippin' and slidin', peepin' and hidin'

Been told a long time ago

Slippin' and slidin', peepin' and hidin'

Been told a long time ago

I've been told, baby, you've been bold

I won't be your fool no more

 

Oh, big conniver, nothin' but a jiver

I done got hip to your jive

Oh, big conniver, nothin' but a jiver

Done got hip to your jive

Slippin' and slidin', peepin' and hidin'

And I won't be your fool no more

 

Oh, my Linda, she's a solid sender

You know you better surrender

Oh, my Linda, she's a solid sender

You know you better surrender

Slippin' and slidin', peepin' and hidin'

And I won't be your fool no more

 

Slippin' and slidin', peepin' and hidin'

Been told a long time ago

Slippin' and slidin', peepin' and hidin'

Been told a long time ago

I've been told, baby, you've been bold

I won't be your fool no more
