tongue tied lyrics – wanda jackson

tongue tied
(berry – covay – lewis)
wanda jackson (capitol lp cut, 1960)

oh, great good golly, he thrills me so
when the apple of my eye whispers in my ear
i get real speechless and i act so shy
and all i can say is neenie-neenie-ny
i get tongue tied, ooh
i get tongue tied, yeah
i go, well ah-ah-ah…
what i’m tryin’ to say is
i love you, yeah!

i met him one day at the candy shop
my heart started poppin’ like a popcorn pop
when he walked up and said, hi sweety pie
well, all i could say is neenie-neenie-ny
i get tongue tied, ooh
i get tongue tied, yeah
i went, well ah-ah-ah-bah…
i love you, yeah!

i love him so and he loves me too
he’s my flat top honey, stands six feet two
i get an itchy twitchy feeling
when he looks into my eyes
but all i can say is neenie-neenie-ny
i get tongue tied, ooh
i get tongue tied, yeah
i go… oh-wah-eh honey
i love you, yeah!

all i can say is neenie-neenie-ny
i get tongue tied, ooh
i get tongue tied, yeah
i go… oh-wah-eh honey… i wanna say…
