Carpenters Leader of the Pack LyricsIs she really going out with him?
Yeah, I don’t know, there she is
Let’s ask her
Betty? is that johnny’s ring you’re wearing?
Wow, it must be great riding with him
Yeah, is he picking you up after school today?
By the way, where’d you meet him?
I meet him at the candy store
He turned around and smiled at me
Do you get the picture?
Yes, we see
That’s when I fell for the leader of the pack
My folks were always putting him down
The said that he came from
The wrong side of town
(wrong side of town)
They’d told me he was bad
But I know he was sad
That’s why I fell for the leader of the pack
One day my dad said, find someone new
I had to tell my johnny we’re through
He stood there and asked me why
But all I could do was cry
I’m sorry I hurt you, the leader of the pack
Well, he sort of smiled and kissed me goodly
And the tears began to fall
And as he drove away on that rainy night
I begged him to go slow
But whether he heard me I’ll never know
Look out, look out, oh look out!
I felt so helpess, what could I do
Remembering all the things we’d been through
At school they’d all stop and stare
I can’t have a chance but I don’t care
I’ll never forget him the leader of the pack...
The leader of the pack, now he’s gone...
