About Kiddio

"Kiddio" is a 1960 R&B/pop song written by Brook Benton & Clyde Otis and released as a single by Brook Benton. The song was first recorded and released in 1957 by Teddy Randazzo while both he and Benton recorded for RCA's Vik label. Randazzo's version is featured in the 1957 movie, " Mister Rock and Roll." The single was the fourth time in a year that Brook Benton had topped the R&B charts. However, two of those times, he'd hit number one with duet partner, Dinah Washington. "Kiddio" also continued Brook Benton's popularity on the pop charts by making it his fifth top-ten pop single. Kiddio was covered by Johnny Littlejohn in 1966 under the title "Kitty O". Johnny Littlejohn scaled back the instrumentation (no violins, or orchestral sounds) and applied an electric Blues guitar treatment to the song. Kiddio was later covered in 1990 by Native American Blues artist Charlie Musselwhite in 1990 under the title "Kiddeo". Charlie Musselwhite emphasized the modern harmonica Blues in his version.

I told you, baby, how I feel
One word can close this deal
Baby, be my queen of hearts
Please gimme that love you've got
A-won'tcha say yes? Don'tcha say no
Make me feel good, kiddio

Maybe I'm just wastin' time
Can't get you off my mind
You could make me feel so good
I know you could if you only would
A-won'tcha say yes? Don'tcha say no
Make me feel good, kiddio

I wrote you a six page letter
I called you on the phone
But you started talkin' 'bout the weather
Kiddio, don'tcha know that's wrong?

I can't stand this playin' 'round
Help me up, don't let me down
Kiss me baby, tell me so
If you love me, let me know
A-won'tcha say yes? Don'tcha say no
Make me feel good, kiddio

I wrote you a six page letter
I even called you on the phone
But you started talkin' 'bout the weather
Kiddio, don'tcha know that's wrong?

I can't stand this playin' 'round
Help me up, don't let me down
A-kiss me baby, tell me so
If you love me, let me know
A-won'tcha say yes? Don'tcha say no
Make me feel good, kiddio

Make me feel so uh-oh oh good, so, so good, kiddio
