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 he's bad, bad Leroy Brown, the baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog
And he'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 thirty two gun in his pocket for fun, he got a razor in his shoe

And he'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 friday 'bout a week ago Leroy shootin' dice
And at the edge of the bar sat a girl named Doris and ooh 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 he'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

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

Yes he's badder than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog
