HAVANA MOON might’ve been Chuck Berry’s slowest and sexiest song. Using a witty Jamaican patois and sultry ballad lyrics it was a favorite of some of the dirty shaggers during the 50s at the Myrtle Beach pavilion. And Rubberlegs was the dirtiest of them all. Arrested every Saturday night for “dirty dancin” this was his favorite song.
Me still alone, me sip de rum.
Me wonder when de boat she come.
To bring me love, oh sweet little thing.
She rock n roll, she dance n sing.
She hold me tight, she touch me lips.
Me eyes she close, me heart she flip.
