I Go Ape
Let’s Have A Party

Wanda Jackson produced some of the most exciting Rock music ever. Her recording of I Go Ape used to be a favourite on every fair visiting Heaton Park in Manchester in the late fifties and early sixties. Another raucous song was Let’s Have A Party. Her voice on these tracks was raw and very exciting. She became more famous as a country and western singer but you couldn’t take the animal passion from her voice.

She used to appear on tour with Elvis.

The following track even made it to The Twisted Wheel when it resided at Brazennose Street Manchester.

Song Lyrics Mean Mean Man – Capitol 1960 – Wanda Jackson

I love a mean mean man
He lives uptown
When I want him most
He’s not around

He’s a mean mean man
whoooo! Lordy he’s a mean mean man
He’s a mean mean man but I love him all I can

Oh well, he calls at six
He wants a date at eight
But he’s never on time
He’s always late

Well, then we go to a dance
He holds me real tight
But then he don’t even kiss me goodnight

I-I-I know I’m a fool
To love that man
But I’m a-gonna love him as long as I can

I-I-I know I’m a fool
To love that man
But I’m gonna love him as long as I can

He’s a mean mean man but I love him all I can
He’s a mean mean man but I love him all I can
