Atom Bomb Baby

Tunes like Atom Bomb Baby practically made the box set ATOMIC PLATTERS inevitable. For sheer ridiculousness it is hard to beat a line like "Atom bomb baby, little atom bomb, I want her in my wigwam, she's just the way I want her to be, a million times hotter than TNT." It is the kind of lyric that demands to be shared with the world by any means necessary.

The Five Stars, originally from Indianapolis, had a regional hit with Atom Bomb Baby and made several appearances on 'American Bandstand.' Ronnie Russell was the group's lead singer and Jim Bruhn played most of the instruments although a then-unknown jazz guitatist named Wes Montgomery appeared on some of their sessions as well.


Atom Bomb Baby
Got a doll, baby, I love her so
Nothing else like her anywhere you go
Man, she's anything but calm
A regular pint sized atom bomb

Refrain: Atom bomb baby, little atom bomb
I want her in my wigwam
She's just the way I want her to be
A million times hotter than TNT

Atom bomb baby loaded with power
Radioactive as a TV tower
A nuclear fission in her soul
Loves with electronic control

Refrain

Atom bomb baby, boy she can start
One of those chain reactions in my heart
A big explosion, big and loud
Mushrooms me right up on a cloud

Refrain

Atom bomb baby sweet as a plum
Carries more wallop than uranium
When she kisses, there's no hitch
Zero power, she turns on the switch

Refrain

Atom bomb baby, little atom bomb
I want her in my wigwam
She's just the way I want her to be
A million times hotter than TNT
Atom bomb baby, little atom bomb!
