Lyrics

Oh, whoa, oh, no
Oh, whoa, oh, yeah
Look at Killer Joe go (ah-ah-ah)
Dancing with Marie (oh-oh-no)
He don't act like he knows (oh-oh-yeah)
She belongs to me
Look at how they Wobble (ah-ah-ah)
He's the best in town (he's the best in town)
I think I'm in trouble (oh-oh-yeah)
She forgets that I'm around
Yeah, ay-ee-ay-eh
Oh, I'm so jealous
Hey, help me, fellas
Go on and tell her she should only dance with me-ee-ee
Ooh
Look at Killer Joe go (ah-ah-ah)
Holding her so tight (oh-oh-no)
Putting on the big show (oh-oh-yeah)
With Marie tonight
Someone better tell him (ah-ah-ah)
She is mine alone (she is mine alone)
Just because he dance good (oh-oh-yeah)
That don't mean he take her home
Yeah, ay ee ay, yeah
Oh, I'm so jealous, yeah, yeah, yeah, hey, help me fellas
Yeah, yeah, yeah, go on and tell her
She should only dance with me
Ooh
Look at Killer Joe go (ah-ah-ah)
Stealing my Marie (stealing my Marie)
Someone better tell her (ah-ah-ah)
She belongs to me
Yeah, ay ee ay, yeah
(wop, wop Killer Joe) Come back, Marie
(no-no-no-no) Come back, Marie
(no-no-no-no) Come back, Marie
(no-no-no-no) Come back, Marie
