Wild Thing

All Aboard the Meme Express – Wednesday, July 30, 2008

On this date in 1966, the Number-One song on the Billboard music charts was “Wild Thing,” by The Troggs.

Wild Thing

Wild make my heart sing...
You make everything
I said wild thing...

Wild thing, I think I love you,

But I wanna know for sure.
Come on, hold me tight.
I love you

Wild make my heart sing...
You make everything
I said wild thing...

Wild thing, I think you move me,
But I wanna know for sure.
So come on, hold me tight.

You move me.
