  • The song was covered by Joan Jett twice, being released on 'Bad Reputation in 1981 & on 'Fetish' in 1999
  • For those curious about the infamous line "let's not be L7", it is a hipster's way of saying �let's not be square.� (when you put the letters �L� and a number �7� together they look similar to a square.)

Uno, dos, one, two, tres, quatro

Matty told Hatty about a thing she saw.
Had two big horns and a wooly jaw.

Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Hatty told Matty, "Let's don't take no chance.
Let's not be L-seven, come and learn to dance."

Wooly bully, wooly bully
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Matty told Hatty, "That's the thing to do.
Get you someone really to pull the wool with you."

Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.
