Leader of the Pack

The Shangri-las

[Spoken]

Is she still goin' out with him?

I dunno.

Here she comes.  Let's ask her.

Hey, Betty, is that Jimmy's ring you're wearin'?

Uh-huh.

Is he pickin' you up after school today?

Nunh-unh.

By the way, where'd you meet him?

 

[Sung]

I met him at the candy store

He turned around and smiled at me - you get the picture (Yes, we see.)

That's when I fell for - the leader of the pack

 

My folks were always putting him down (down, down)

They said he came from the wrong side of town (What'dya mean when you that he came from the wrong side of town?)

They told me he was bad

But I knew he was sad

That's why I fell for - the leader of the pack.

 

One day my dad said "find someone new"

I had to tell my Jim we were through

He stood there and asked me why

But all I could do was cry

I'm sorry I hurt you - the leader of the pack.

[Spoken]

He sort of smiled and kissed me goodbye

The tears were beginning to show

And as he left me on that rainy night

I begged him to go slow

But whether he heard, I'll never know

Look out!  Look out!  Look out!

[Sung]

I felt so helpless - what could I do?

Remembering all the things we'd been through

At school they all stop and stare

I can't hide the tears, but I don't care

I'll never forget you - the leader of the pack.

 

The leader of the pack - now he's gone

The leader of the pack - now he's gone

The leader of the pack - now he's gone.....
