FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Chantilly Lace’ Big Bopper (1958)

Jiles Perry Richardson Jr. (October 24, 1930 – February 3, 1959), known as The Big Bopper, was an American musician, songwriter and disc jockey. Richardson was killed in a plane crash in Clear Lake, Iowa in 1959, along with fellow musicians Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, and the pilot Roger Peterson. The accident was famously referred to as “The Day the Music Died” in Don McLean‘s 1971 song “American Pie“.

Lyrics below

Hello, baby
Yeah, this is the Big Bopper speakin'
Ha ha ha ha ha, oh you sweet thing
Do I what?
Will I what?
Oh baby, you know what I like

[Chorus]
Chantilly lace and a pretty face
And a pony tail a-hangin' down
That wiggle in the walk 
And giggle in the talk
Makes the world go 'round
There ain't nothin' in the world
Like a big-eyed girl
That makes me act so funny
Make me spend my money
Make me feel real loose, like a long necked goose
Like a girl, oh baby, that's what I like

What's that baby, but, but, but?
Oh honey
But?
Oh baby, you know what I like

[Chorus]

What's that, honey?
Pick you up at eight and don't be late?
But, baby, I ain't got no money, honey
Ha ha ha ha ha
Oh, all right, baby, you know what I like

[Chorus]

  1. The deaths of Richardson, Holly and Valens at Clear Lake play a not insignificant role in Jim Dodge’s wonderful novel Not Fade Away, too. Well worth the effort if your interests lie with rock n roll, psychedelics, big eyed girls and great prose.
