Video: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy — Why Me?

.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is a contemporary swing revival band originally formed in Ventura, California, in 1989 by leader Scotty Morris. The band was named Big Bad Voodoo Daddy after Scotty Morris met blues guitar legend Albert Collins at one of the latter’s concerts. “He signed my poster ‘To Scotty, the big bad voodoo daddy’,” Morris explains. “I thought it was the coolest name I ever heard on one of the coolest musical nights I ever had. So when it came time to name this band, I didn’t really have a choice. I felt like it was handed down to me. The band has concentrated on the swing of the 1940s and 1950s, playing clubs and lounges in their early years.

Why Me? 

Now if you’ve seen my baby
My baby is oh so fine
She’s long and lean
And never mean
She tastes like cherry wine

And she’s my baby (She drives me crazy)
Now a love like mine
Should never be denied
I want to hug and kiss her
Oh Lord I really miss her all the time
All the time

Now I said
Why, why, why, why, why? (Why me?)
Why, Why, Why me? (Why me?)
Why, why, why, why, why?
Why’d she have to run away from me?
It’s a mystery
I love her more today
Than I loved her yesterday
When I thought that she’d come back to me

Why me?

Now if you’ve seen my baby
Tell her this for me
I’m so sad and lonely
Down as I can be

And she’s my baby (She drives me crazy)
Now a love like mine
Should never be denied
I want to hug and kiss her
Oh Lord I really miss her all the time
All the time

Now I said
Why, why, why, why, why? (Why me?)
Why, Why, Why me? (Why me?)
Why, why, why, why, why?
Why’d she have to run away from me?
It’s a mystery
I love her more today
Than I loved her yesterday
When I thought that she’d come back to me

Why me? Oh, why me?

Now I said
Why, why, why, why, why? (Why me?)
Why, Why, Why me? (Why me?)
Why, why, why, why, why?
Why’d she have to run away from me?
It’s a mystery
I love her more today
Than I loved her yesterday
When I thought that she’d come back to me

Why me?

Now I said
Why, why, why, why, why? (Why me?)
Why, Why, Why me? (Why me?)
Why, why, why, why, why?
Why’d she have to run away from me?
It’s a mystery
I love her more today
Than I loved her yesterday
When I thought that she’d come back to me

Why me? Why me?
Why me? Why me?
Why me? Why me?
Why me?
