(Don’t You Mess Around With) My Little Sister

(E7) She’s a rocker
She takes after me
And she’s (A7) a roller
Runs in the family
She’s a (B7) rock and roll baby
A real gone twister
But I’m (A7) telling you Mister
Don’t you mess around with my (E7) little sister

I don’t know you
But I know your kind
I know I’m right,
‘Cause I can read your mind
Well I know you think you can’t resist her
But I’m telling you Mister
Don’t you mess around with my little sister

(A7) I promised the folks I wouldn’t keep her out late
Because she’s (E7) too young to party
Too young to date
So (A7) take your hands off her
Find yourself another
Or you’re (B7) gonna have to answer to this big brother

I tell you, I ain’t had fun all night
‘Cause all you fellas keep trying to treat her right
She may blow your mind like an old transistor
But I’m telling you Mister
Don’t you mess around with my little sister

Don’t you mess around
Don’t you mess around now
oo oo
Don’t you mess around with my little sister now…

There was no place whatsoever for a woman in the life and the world that Jack Kerouac described. And women were not going to be invited into it. So it’s sort of like crashing the party. I know I’m here unwelcome and I’m going to rewrite this history so I can be a part of it.
