Rosemary Clooney

Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June 29, 2002) was an American singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit "Come On-a My House" written by William Saroyan and his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (better known as David Seville, the father figure of Alvin and the Chipmunks), which was followed by other pop numbers such as "Botch-a-Me" (a cover version of the Italian song Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina by Alberto Rabagliati), "Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as Much", "Hey There" and "This Ole House", although she had success as a jazz vocalist.

Well, bad news travels like wildfire,
Good news travels slow. 
They all call me "wildfire,", 
'Cause everybody knows
I'm bad news, everywhere I go, 
Always gettin' in trouble
And a-leavin' little girls
That hate to see me go.

They tried to hang me in Oakland, 
And they did in Francisco. 
But I wouldn't choke, I broke the rope, 
And they had to let me go, 
'Cause I'm bad news, everywhere I go, 
Always gettin' in trouble
And leavin' little girls
That hate to see me go.

Now, from North to South, to East to West, 
The story is the same. 
From one state to another, 
I have to change my name, 
'Cause I'm bad news, everywhere I go, 
Always gettin' in trouble
And a-leavin' little girls 
That sure hate to see me go. 
Well, now I picked peaches in Georgia, 
I lumberjacked in Maine. 
I've been hired, and fired, and jailed
Any town you can name, 
'Cause I'm bad news, everywhere I go, 
Always gettin' into trouble
And a-leavin' little girls
That hate to see me go.
