Urban Legends and Hoaxes:
Louie Louie

In the 50s, they tried to ban Louie Louie for having subversive lyrics. Could anybody actually understand them?

Here´s the actual words. Maybe it´s better if they´d been left unknown!

Louie Louie, me gotta go
Louie Louie, me gotta go
Fine little girl she waits for me
Me catch the ship for cross the sea
Me sail the ship all alone
Me never thinks me make it home

(chorus)

Three nights and days me sail the sea
Me think of girl constantly
On the ship I dream she there
I smell the rose in her hair

(chorus, guitar solo)

Me see Jamaica moon above
It won´t be long, me see my love
I take her in my arms and then
Me tell her I never leave again
