BEHIND THE MUSICJosh Madden

This is the true story behind the lyrics of the song ‘My Boyfriend’s Back’ by The Angels (originally meant to be sung by the Shirelles but those chicks slept on the track):

He went away and you hung around
And bothered me, every night

This girl’s boyfriend got caught trying to steal a ’63 Nova off Old Man Stevenson’s lot so he was sent to Juvi for 2 months. While he was away, this guy Arnold – who is incidentally the running back for the rival school football team – conned her into giving him a [bleep] at Joe Graham’s party.

And when I wouldn’t go out with you
You said things that weren’t very nice

Arnold told a couple fellas about the [bleep] over burgers and the waitress who overheard the story just so happens to attend the same school as the girl who is singing the song. The singer now has to deny everything because her boyfriend is kind of “The Man” at their school…

My boyfriend’s back and you’re gonna be in trouble (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

Self explanatory.

You see him comin’ better cut out on the double (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

You should get to steppin’.

You been spreading lies that I was untrue (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

It’s not a good look to be acting like that [bleep] was a big deal because ladies are gonna know you don’t be getting any on the regular… just sayin’.

So look out now cause he’s comin’ after you (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

I told you this mf’er is not stoked… I was his first “piece” and his father has a drinking problem, so if everyone finds out I played his ass he’s going to get sh*t both at school and at home…

He’s been gone for such a long time (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

2 months is a long time… especially because I stay giving this dude mass [bleeps] and other shit… you do the math…

Now he’s back and things’ll be fine (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

I’m about to make up for lost time… and you know this fool is gonna buy me mad skirts with poodles and stuff.

You’re gonna be sorry you were ever born (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

Self explanatory.

Cause he’s kinda big and he’s awful strong (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back) (Hey he knows I wasn’t cheatin’!)

He was doing mad push ups in Juvi and also he was already kinda stacked and not really too smart… like I said, he’s from a family of heavy drinkers…

(What made you think he’d believe all your lies?)

C’mon son… the power of the [bleep] is some ill sh*t.

 

(You’re a big man now but he’ll cut you down to size)

*This is some suggestive writing.

My boyfriend’s back he’s gonna save my reputation (Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend’s back)

You shoulda not said anything because you’re aight and I might have gotten a little tipsy again in the future but you messed up for reals.

If I were you I’d take a permanent vacation (Hey-la, hey-la, my boyfriend’s back)

Long walk off a short pier style…

Yeah, my boyfriend’s back (La-day-la, my boyfriend’s back)

He really has no idea I have a “loose” side to me…

I could see him comin’ (La-day-la, my boyfriend’s back)

There is no such thing as a celly, it’s 1963, but I can definitely see him rolling up on the passenger side of his best friend’s ride…

So you better get a runnin’ (La-day-la, my boyfriend’s back)

Why are you still standing around? You don’t even go to this school and I’m not going to give you any more [bleeps]. Not here, anyway.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (La-day-la, my boyfriends’s back)

Rubbing it in…


Know he’s comin’ after you (La-day-la, my boyfriend’s back)

He’ll be heading back to Juvi and someone else will be getting to touch my boobs because you will be dead, so run…


Because he knows I’ve been true now…

Yes it’s the end of the song and yes my boyfriend is still delusional…
