Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.

Well I got a baby whose oh so pretty,
Found her right here in this knock dead city.
Saw somebody kissing my baby last night.
My baby said Jimmy that's all right.

Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.

Baby now baby understand.
Jimmy looks good but he's a happy man.
Roly looks good but he's oh so cold.
That big ol' drummer gonna wreck your soul.

Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.

Two orphan babies were a laying in the bed.
The big one turned to Jimmy and said,
"I love you Jimmy with all of my heart."
Jimmy woke up and tore the place apart.

Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.

Well baby now baby hear my scene.
I wanna know if you do love me.
I love you baby with all my heart.
Oh please don't ever say we will part.

Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
Diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy.
A-be-by-bick-ya-bye-go-go-go-yeah!

and he had a hit tv show
I'd like to hear that with a tuba on the bass line.

You can certainly hear the Bo Diddley guitar riff and maybe the Diddley in the title gives us a hint.
I love this.
Completely not about this song, but The Chris Isaak Show was fantastic and after watching that it gives me way more respect for him as an artist...love the fact that he didn't take himself too seriously.  And for that reason...even his weaker stuff becomes that much more enjoyable.  Like he's just taking the piss out of it...

Enjoy...
His latest album sounds like circus music. Really bad...

Is this a Buddy Holly song?

Why yes it is, just unknown to me until now.


no, it's a Bo Diddley song.

Played after Buddy Holly, for me, this simply does not stand up. But that's just one person's opinion.

meh
Only another person's opinion here, but played after Buddy Holly was kind of a cool follow up. Maybe not one of Chris' best tunes, but totally get the segue.
