The Swingin’ Medallions – Double Shot (of My Baby’s Love)

This song sounds like it’s being performed by a drunk fraternity. I love this song. It’s hard to be in a bad mood when you listen to this. The song was banned on many radio stations because of references to drinking and sex… This song peaked at #17 in 1966 on the Billboard 100.

As you can probably guess…it was their only charting song…but they sure sounded like they had a good time doing it though. The song was written by Don Smith and Cyril Vetter.

If you want to know more about the Medallions go to their home page…from what I see they are still playing.

I found where Bruce Springsteen invited The Swingin’ Medallions up on stage to sing “Double Shot” in 2009 here.

 

Double Shot of My Baby’s Love

Woke up this morning, my head was so bad
The worst hangover that I ever had
What happened to me last night
That girl of mine, she loved me so right (yeah) (oh, oh)
She loved me so long and she loved me so hard
I finally passed out in her front yard (whoo)
It wasn’t wine that I had too much of
It was a double shot of my baby’s love

Double shot of my baby’s love, yeah yeah, yeah
Double shot of my baby’s love, yeah yeah, yeah
A potion that I had too much of
It was a double shot of my baby’s love

It was such a thrill it was hurtin’ me (ooh)
I was sufferin’ in ecstasy
She had me turnin’ flips and-a shoutin’ out loud (yah-hah)
A sip of her love and I was walkin’ one a cloud
One night a week is-a plenty enough
It’s a good thing for me they don’t bottle that stuff (pop)
Well, my heart begins to fly like a dove
When I take a double shot of my baby’s love

Double shot of my baby’s love, yeah yeah, yeah
Double shot of my baby’s love, yeah yeah, yeah
A potion that I had too much of
It was a double shot of my baby’s love

Double shot of my baby’s love, yeah yeah, yeah
Double shot of my baby’s love, yeah yeah, yeah
Double shot of my baby’s love, yeah yeah, yeah
Double shot of my baby’s love, yeah yeah, yeah

  1. My husband and I own a mobile DJ and Karaoke service. Back in the day–late 80s early 90s–this song would pack the floor with the thirty-five and older crowd, for the very reason you suggest: It was their “frat song”. It’s one of those precursors to punk. Great tune.
