    Default Toots and the maytals - Louie Louie

    Hi, i'm a french music student and singer, we're working on a set with mostly old school 70's and 80's Reggae tunes to explain locals that Reggae music is not only Ganja music but phylosophic, ideologic and religious.

    My task in the band is to seek lyrics of the songs that we will sing. I found most of them on the internet but i can only find Richard Berry version for this song. Toots did not follow the original song, seems like he improvised on shot in studio. This song sounds great with a warm old school sound, you can hear it here if you don't know the song.

    As my spoken english is rusty, il can't understand few sentences in the song, i guess it might be yardie, jamaican english is not that accurate as well and not easy to understand.

    So please, help me filling the blanks, here is all what i could got for this song :


    **********************
    Louie Louie (Toots and the maytals)

    Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby
    Please don't leave don't leave me, no
    Louie Louie, Louie Louie, Louie Baby

    CHORUS:

    Louie Louie, oh baby
    Got to go
    Louie Louie, oh baby
