Holly, Buddy - Real Wild Child Lyrics




Well, I'm just out of school
Like I'm real, real cool
Gotta dance like a fool
Got the message that I've gotta be a wild
I'm a wild one, ooh yay, I'm a wild one
Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a-movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin'
Baby I'm a real wild child

Gonna meet all my friends
Gonna have myself a ball
Gonna tell my friends
Gonna tell them all
That I'm a wild one, ooh yay, I'm a wild one
Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a-movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin'
Baby I'm a real wild child

Well, I'm a real wild one
And I like wild fun
In a world gone crazy
Ev'rything seems hazy
I'm a wild one, ooh yay, I'm a wild one
Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a-movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin'
Baby I'm a real wild child

Not a doubt, not a maybe
I'm a real wild child
Don't-cha pout, my baby
When I start a-runnin' wild
'Cause I'm a wild one, ooh yay, I'm a wild one
Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a-movin' wild
Gonna keep a-swingin'
Baby I'm a real wild child

[Spoken:]
Wanna know my name?
I'm a wild child
Nothin' tame about this Ted
I'm a wild child
You bet, I'm a wild child

Holly, Buddy Real Wild Child Comments
  1. Rick Drewer

    Seriously, listen to Johnny O'Keefe's original version and he wrote it! Or Joan Jett's version.

  2. Jay Gill

    Iggy Pop's this and all of the other versions!

    Rockin Rollin n Trollin

    check out Status Quo's !!!

  3. Scoobery doo

    My late father loved Buddy Holly, played a few of his songs at his funeral

  4. Raj Pra

    Lead vocal by Ivan - Jerry Ivan Allison. Buddy Holly on lead guitar.
    Buddy sounds funny.9 Now there's a title.

  5. dinky1959

    This is nothing compared to tge Jerry Lee's version!!
    came from This Boy's Life

  6. djfalcoonn falcoonn

    SO... Iggy Pop did not do the original ??????
    就这个版本最好
    Ivan sounds like Peter Lorre!
    This is nothing compared to tge Jerry Lee's version!!
    This is nothing compared to tge Jerry Lee's version!!

  7. dqwdq asdasd

    就这个版本最好
    Ivan sounds like Peter Lorre!
    This is nothing compared to tge Jerry Lee's version!!

  8. Eric Elmer

    The guitar in the song playing staccato with no words is the one of the best guitar solos I’ve ever heard. I never knew until today that Buddy Holly played this song! Love him

  9. Walter Brown

    This isn't Buddy Holly (singing.) It is Jerry Allison, the Crickets Drummer. Yes, the band is the Crickets, and the lead guitarist IS Buddy Holly. But Jerry Allison (as "Ivan") is singing the song. Please attribute the song correctly. (Yes, I love it. First heard it in 1958, when this version came out.)

  10. D Bean

    I've heard so msny versions of this song, this one is the corniest. The best version is Iggy Pop.

  11. Atti Malambri 001

    This is nothing compared to tge Jerry Lee's version!!

    Jay Gill

    Jerry Lee's nothing compared to Iggy Pop's version.

  12. Brian Young

    Ivan sounds like Peter Lorre!

  13. Hammy Cats69

    Can't get enough of this. Just love Buddy's guitar style on this, very full and distinctive.
    Would have been interesting to see how he would have done lead vocals but at least he is on backjng and guitar. Love it.
    I had to search high and low for this and found it on Amazon and ordered it.
    Ordered just cause of Buddy's guitar playing. 😁😁

    me & you

    Not buddy on guitar

  14. Bobby Brode

    Strait from the soundtrack of this boy's life with Leonardo DiCaprio. Awesome flick man.

  15. kian wallace

    came from This Boy's Life

  16. Anythink Gaming

    Love it

  17. Billy D. Bunny

    I like this version over the original, not that Johnny O'Keefe is bad, far from it. I just like the way this is done. And it sure sound's like Buddy singing to me.

    Steven Miller

    NOT buddy singing-but he is the lead guitar

  18. The Don

    Buddy sounds funny.9 Now there's a title.

    Steven Miller

    BUddy Background singer on this record and lead guitar. Drummer is singing

  19. Billy Shears

    The coolest nerd of all time. He sang this straight out of his nostrils.

    hwgray

    At the time, those "be-bop" - popularized by Dizzy Gillespie - glasses were by no means "nerdy." They were totally hip. And Buddy Holly was neither a nerd nor the singer of this song. His drummer, under his middle name, Ivan, sang it. Buddy played guitar.

  20. Sally Mendoza

    This aint Buddy!!!Fake.

    Doug Wass

    Please ; Post a Buddy version. Never ever have heard it !!
    Cheers

    Bobby Brode

    Sally Mendoza its his former drummer

    Whatsitallabaaat

    The guitar and the production are Buddy Holly. So, not fake.

    rockonthestone 64

    Not fake.
    Lead vocals are produced by his drummer and best friend Jerry Allison and you can clearly hear Buddy in the background vocals.
    And i also believe he plays lead guitar on this.

    Andrew Rau

    Buddy on guitar. Jerry Allison sang it. But you can hear Buddy in the background. Not fake. It's the guy who posted it who's at fault. Should have titled it Jerry Allison aka Ivan

  21. Dylan Snell

    Anybody want to tell this guy that it is actually Ivan (Jerry Allison) singing instead of Buddy Holly. The Crickets had already broke up when Ivan released it.

    Ebony .Bunny

    This is Jerry Allison not Buddy Holly. Jerry Allison was the drummer for Buddy Holly & the Crickets. The Crickets didn't break up, but Jerry Allison did record the song after Buddy Holly died.

    Doug Wass

    Jerry Allison .... for sure.

    Chris Dolmetsch

    Was recorded with Buddy but not released until later.

    Heidi Myers

    Buddy is playing guitar on this.... but it IS Jerry singing.

    gkvaderwolf06

    Thanks for the info! I seriously thought I was going crazy for thinking this didn't sound like Buddy at all. Lol

  22. Charlotte Hammond

    I think I'm addicted to this song, I've played it over 100 times today

  23. Allen Blaine

    SO... Iggy Pop did not do the original ??????

    Spencer Dubois

    Actually it was Johnny O'Keefe ! Despite this being a great rendition, it is not the original either.

    Nancy Mattice

    I thought this was an Iggy original too! I learned something new .

    Sally Mendoza

    Hell no.

    Ebony .Bunny

    The Original was by Johnny O'Keefe 1957. Johnny O'Keefe is an Australian singer, and is credited as co-write of the song.

    Steven Miller

    not even close

  24. Asleep
