Last updated: 08/07/2011 11:00:00 AM

I'm gonna tell Aunt Mary 'bout Uncle John
he said he had the misery but he got a lot of fun
Oh, baby, yeah now baby
Woo-oo-oo baby, some fun tonight, yeah

I saw Uncle John with Long Tall Sally
he saw Aunt Mary comin' and he ducked back in the alley
Oh, baby, yeah now baby
Woo-oo-oo baby, some fun tonig-aahhhh woo!!!!

Well Long Tall Sally Shes a
pretty sweet she got
everything that Uncle John need
Oh baby, yeah now baby
Woo-oo-oo baby, some fun tonight-aahhhhh-yeah-ah-ah!!!!

Well, we have some fun tonight
I said we have some fun tonight
Everything's all right
yeah we have some fun tonight
I said have some fun
yeah, some, ahhhhh, ah
We're gonna have some fun tonight
yeah some fun tonight
Everything's all right
have some fun tonight, well
We'll have some fun
Hv'in some fun tonight-Ow-yeah-ha

gives me goosebumps | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/28/09

I didn't have any problems understanding the words...

This song is MEANT to be BELTED OUT! I love Paul McCartney's voice in this song (or this style of singing... bluesy like Oh! Darling and Why Don't We Do it in the Road and others... )

Energy | Reviewer: Andy Macdonald | 12/11/07

Energy, excitement & passion (whether whiskey induced or not) are always attractive, to me at least. I think a few others liked it when Little Richard did it and again when the Beatles did it. Anyone who can sing this song convincingly is going to entertain! Paul didn't do a bad job at all. PS there is a video of LTS on YouTube - look out for when John drops his guitar pick & retrieves it.
PS - A previous reviewer has betrayed his ignorance by calling this a Motown song! Not all black artists are Motown!

not the greatest cover song | Reviewer: Joseph F. Mattaino | 8/31/07

The Beatles were best when they stayed in their own backyard and sang songs that THEY wrote. When the Beatles tried to sing cover material, especially Motown, they fell all over themselves: Case in point, "Long Tall Sally". Paul McCartney sounded as though must have drank a quart of moonshine whiskey before he recorded this song. His singing voice is such that you can barely understand a word. It must have been the whiskey doing the singing! It is amazing that this is the same Beatle who wrote and sang the song "Yesterday". What a contrast!
