OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*On the south side of Chicago
On the baddest part of town

The men star right, gonna roll it around
Left allemande, weave the ring
Bad, Bad, Leroy brown
Swing your girl and promenade that town
He's badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junk yard dog


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru count 4 hands
Dosado with that corner girl
Swing thru and then the boys run right
Tag the line, cloverleaf
Girls square thru 3 hands around
Swing old Leroy and promenade
He's badder than old King Kong
Meaner than a junk yard dog

*He's got a custom Continental
He's got an El Dorado, too

*Leroy's more than trouble
He stands about six foot four

He's badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junk yard dog

Bad, Bad Leroy Brown Lyrics ID: 195

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
