Lyrics


Wowie Zowie
Your love's a treat
Wowie Zowie
You can't be beat
Wowie Zowie, baby
You're so neat
I don't even care
If you shave your legs

Wowie Zowie, baby
You're so fine
Wowie Zowie, baby
Please be mine
Wowie Zowie
Up and down my spine
I don't even care
If you brush your teeth

Dream of you each mornin'
I dream of you each night
Just the other day I got so shook up
I dreamed of you in the afternoon
I dream of you each mornin'
I dream of you each night
Just the other day I got so shook up
I had a flash in the afternoon

Wowie Zowie, baby
Love me do
Wowie Zowie
and I'll love you too
Wowie Zowie, baby
I'll be true
I don't even care
If your dad's the heat

(Wowie Zowie...)

Wowie
Wowie Zowie
Wowie
Wowie Zowie
Wowie
Wowie Zowie
Wowie
Wowie Zowie
Wowie
Wowie Zowie
Wowie
Wowie Zowie
Wowie...

Notes About This Song

FZ liner notes on "Freak Out!" (1966): "'Wowie Zowie' is carefully designed to suck the 12 year old listener into our camp. I like the piano and the xylophone accompaniment in the second chorus. It is Cheerful. It is harmless. Wooly Bully. Little Richard says he likes it."

FZ liner notes on "Freak Out!" (1966): "'You Didn’t Try To Call Me' was written to describe a situation in which Pamela Zarubica found herself last spring. (Wowie Zowie is what she says when she’s not grouchy... who would guess it could inspire a song? No one would guess. None of you are perceptive enough. Why are you reading this?) The formal structure of 'You Didn’t Try To Call Me' is not revolutionary, but it is interesting. You don’t care."

Wowie Zowie: It's a trade mark phrase of Pamela Zarubica aka Suzy Creamcheese (Freak Out List Of Contributors ) and you can hear her uttering it herself in her peculiar lazy way on the track number 16 of Uncle Meat. Ian Underwood Whips It Out (Live On Stage In Copenhagen).

Ian: "My name is Ian Underwood, and I'm straight member of the group."
Pam: "Wowie Zowie!"

"I don't even care
If your dad's the heat"


It really means to be a policeman. (Notes from arf.ru)

The end of “Wowie Zowie” uses the same chords and vocal pitches as the end of “Sherry” by the Four Seasons.

CC Clues In This Song

On the album Cruising With Ruben & The Jets: Cheap Thrills:

"Cheap thrills in the back of my car
Cheap thrills, how fine they are
Cheap thrills up and down my spine..."
