Now listen here to the story of Bo Diddley
The rock 'n roll scene in general
Bo Diddley was born Ellis McDaniels
In a place called McCoom

In Mississippi about nineteen-twenty-sex
He moved to Chicago about ninetten-thirty-eight
Where his name was eventually changed to Bo Diddley
He practised the guitar every day and sometimes into the night

'Til his papa's hair began to turn white
His pa said "Son, listen here, I know"
"You can stay but, uh, that guitar's just got to go"
So he pulled his hat down over his eyes
