Hey schoolgirl in the second row
The teacher's lookin' over
      D7                      G      G  Eb C   G
So I got to whisper way down low
         C                         G                  D7   G
to say "who-bop-a-loo-chi-bop let's meet after school at three"

            C                      G
She said, "hey babe, but there is one thing more"
D7                    G         
My school is over at half past four
C                            G
Maybe when we're older, then we can date
D7         G
Ooh let's wait!"

She said, "Hey babe I gotta lot of work to do
It takes me hours till my homework is thru
Someday we'll go steady, so don't you fret,
Ooh, not yet!"

           C                            G
Then she turned around to me with that gleam in her eye
D7                          G
She said, "I'm sorry if I passed you by,
           C                       G             D7
I'm gonna skip my homework, gonna cut my class,
bug out of here real fast"

G          D7                 G      Eb  C   G
Hey schoolgirl in the second row
                                  D7                       G    Eb  C
Now we're goin' steady, hear the words that I want you to know
            C                      G      
well it's "Who- bop-a-loo-chi-bop, you're mine
D7                 G
I knew it all the time"

Fade out
D7                      G
Who-bop-a-loo-chi-bop, hah, you're mine.
