Based on a standard bar blues progression, it was written by the Theme From A Wooly Place (Wooly Bully / Theme From A Summer Place) - The Tubes - Love Bomb frontman, Domingo "Sam" Samudio. The song was recorded at Sam C. It proved to be the only recording made at the studio to achieve national success. It became a worldwide success, selling three million copies and reaching No. It was named Billboard 's number-one song of the year despite never reaching No.
The song was given the green light after Sam rewrote the lyrics famously replacing "Hully Gully" with "Wooly Bully" and few additional lyrical changes.
Sam retained the 'watch it, watch it now" refrain from the original version. The lyrics of "Wooly Bully" were hard to understand, and some radio stations banned the song. The lyrics describe a conversation between "Mattie" and "Hattie" concerning the "Wooly Bully" a creature which Mattie describes as "a thing she saw [that] had two big horns and a wooly jaw" and the desirability of developing dancing skills, although no attempt is made to synthesize these divergent topics.
The warning, "Let's not be L-7", means "Let's not be square ", from the shape formed by the fingers making an L on one hand and a 7 on the other. One, two, tres, cuatro! The count down part of the song was also not planned.
I was just goofing around and counted off in Tex-Mex. It just blew everybody away, and actually, I wanted it taken off the record. We did three takes, all of them different, and they took the first take and released it. Eddie and the Hot Rods released a version of the song as a single in the United Kingdom inbut it did not chart. Bachman—Turner Overdrive performs a cover of the song on the soundtrack for the Canadian film American Boyfriends.
