1, 2, 3 Red Light

1968

Everytime I try to prove I love you
1, 2, 3 red light stops me
Baby you ain't right to stop me
1, 2, 3 red light stops me

Everytime I make a move to love you
1, 2, 3 red light stops me
Baby every night you stop me
1, 2, 3 red light

Stop the game (stop the game)
You got too much to lose (too much to lose)
If you stop me again
That's when we might end
So please don't refuse (please don't refuse)

Everytime I make a move to love you
1, 2, 3 red light don't stop me
Baby you ain't right to stop me
1, 2, 3 red light don't stop me

Everytime I try to prove I love you
1, 2, 3 red light don't stop me
When I know I'm right don't stop me
1, 2, 3 red light

Everytime I make a move to love you
1, 2, 3 red light don't stop me
Baby you ain't right to stop me
1, 2, 3, red light don't stop me

 

ANDY RATING:

One of the most famous Bubblegum songs, but far from being one of the best. There is a lot to admire though. Good singing, the handclaps . . . but, hey, it's a children's song, for cryin' out loud!

 

NOTES:

. . . one of many 1910 Fruitgum Co. childhood game songs along with Simon Says, May I Take A Giant Step and Pop Goes The Weasel . . . what? No Ring Around The Rosies? . . .
