OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across and go
Now turn roll away, circle left you know
Roll away then circle left around that way
Left allemande on corner, weave I say
Bad, bad Leroy Brown
Dosado, promenade that old town
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junk yard dog


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads pass thru, cloverleaf behind the sides
Sides pass thru, star thru, circle 8
Go walking around and then, left allemande the corner
Go forward 2, the men back in and star
Bad, bad Leroy Brown
Shoot that star, dosado and promenade
Badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junk yard dog

Bad, Bad Leroy Brown
 
 

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 named Leroy Brown

Now Leroy more than trouble
You see he stand 'bout six foot four
All the downtown ladies call him "Treetop Lover"
All the men just call him "Sir"

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

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

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Now Friday 'bout a week ago
Leroy shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar
Sat a girl named Doris
And oo that girl looked nice
Well he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
'Cause Leroy Brown learned a lesson
'Bout messin' with the wife of a jealous man

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

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