Lyrics

1956 Screamin' Jay Hawkins
 
Down in the valley on a foggy [...] rock
Stood a crazy little demon blowin' his top
Fire in his eyes and smoke from his head
You gotta be real cool to hear the words he said
He did a MUP MUP MP UM MUPA UM MUPA MUP MUP MUP MEPOP MEPAPA MEPOP MUP MUP ME MO
That cat was mad!
 
He had steam in his soul for the one he loves so
He had death on his mind 'cause my demon let him go
Gonna run through the world till he understands his pain
Somebody help him get his demon home again
MUP MUP MUP UM MUPA UM MUPA MUP MUP MUP MEPOP MEPAPA MEPOP MUP MUP ME MO
That cat, that cat was mad! Yeah
 
[piano / guitar solo]
 
He made the sky turn green, he made the grass turn red
He even put pretty hair on granma's bald head
He did the moon back up, he even pushed back time
Took the tooty out of fruity, had the devil drinkin' wine
MUP MUP MUP UM MUPA UM MUPA MUP MUP MUP MEPOP MEPAPA MEPOP MUP MUP ME MO
That cat was mad!
 
[saxophone solo]
 
His demon felt good 'cause she finally got across
To the crazy little demon that a woman's still above
Down in the valley on a foggy [...]
You can still hear this demon blowin' his top
He did a MUP MUP MUP UM MUPA UM MUPA MUP MUP MUP MEPOP MEPAPA MEPOP MUP MUP ME MO
That cat, that cat was ma-aaad!
 
He pushed back night, brought in afternoon
He even made Leap Year jump over the moon
He took the 4th of July and he put it in May
He took this morning, bought back yesterday
MUP MUP MUP UM MUPA UM MUPA MUP MUP MUP MEPOP MEPAPA MEPOP MUP MUP ME MO
That cat was mad, huh!
Huh ha ha ha!
Ooh!
