Moe Bandy and Joe Stampley – Hey Joe (Hey Moe) Lyrics

Hey Joe
Where’d you find that purdy girlie where’d you get that jolly dolly
How’d you rate that dish I wish was mine
Hey Moe
She’s got skin that’s creamy dreamy eyes that look so lovey dovey
Lips as red as cherry berry wine
Now listen Joe I’m not a heel but ole Buddy let me tell you how I feel
She’s a honey she’s a sugar pie I’m warnin’ you I’m gonna try
To steal her from you
Hey Moe
I know we’ve been the best of friends but this is where that friendship ends
I’m gonna keep that dolly for my own
Hey Joe
Come on let’s be buddy duddies show me you’re my palsy wowsy
Introduce that pretty little chick to me
Hey Moe
You’re really getting’ aggrevatin’ hey you’re squirrely that’s my girlie
You’re about as pushy as can be
Now come on Joe let’s make a deal let me dance with her to see if she is real
She’s the cutest girl I’ve ever seen I’ll tell you face to face I mean
To steal her from you
Hey Moe
We’ll be friends until the end but this looks like the end my Friend
I’m gonna keep that dolly for my own
I’m gonna keep that dolly for my own…
