​Anthony Boy

This song is by Chuck Berry and appears on the album Chuck Berry Is On Top (1959) and on the album The Chess Years (1991).

Eight o'clock in the morning
And I'm movin' on out to school
With an open book and a sleepy look
The teacher can't be fooled
I took a pass in the early class
The teacher will never know
That I postponed my work at home
Watching the evening show

Hey there Anthony boy
Why are you in such a rush (go!)
The girl, she wanna talk to you
Look at him, he's a-blush (go!)
Three o'clock in the afternoon
Completes the day of school
Before the ding can feast a ring
He's in the vestibule

Betty and Barbara and Jeannie and Jane
Are yakety-yakkin' with Joan
About some things that Anthony told her
Over the telephone
Here there, Tony me boy
Why are you in such a rush (go!)
The girl, she wanna talk to you
Look at him, he's a-blush (go!)

Hey there Anthony boy
Why are you in such a rush (go!)
The girl, she wanna talk to you
Look at him, how he blush (go!)
Betty told Lee the second that I
Had told her not to tell
Now that you know, she knows I know
You know that all is well

Calm down, Tony me boy
Don't let them get in your hair
With a good education
You may become a multi miljonaire
Hey there Anthony boy
Why are you in such a rush (go!)
The girl, she wanna talk to you
Look at him, he's a-blush (go!)
