Sally Sue Brown

Sally's dangerous.
She's too hot for all you guys.
Let me handle her.

"Sally Sue Brown" appeared on the 1988 album "Down in the Groove." It's a fun, old-style rocker, though it doesn't exactly pulse with life, but then again, not everything on this critically and commercially unsuccessful album does. Here's the rundown on Brown:

- She's back in town, so boys, run for cover or else you will be a broken-hearted lover.
- She looks hot in her tight skirt and with her big bright eyes, but watch out, she tells lies.
- I don't care what she's been up to, I'm "goin' south" and doing it all again. I'd prefer to have my heart broken than pass up a chance to get with Sally Sue Brown.
- I'm going to be a fool for that girl and lay at her bed like a dog.

The song was written by Arthur Alexander and two other people, but I know nothing about it.
