*** Supposedly, some time in the 1960's, Roy was challenged to go on stage & sing his wort song. He went out & sang "Ooby Dooby". I hope he later came to realize it's not a bad song at all! ***

I don't know if that's true or not: After all, he did the song on his "Black and White Night" TV special... And, I've never seen him live and in person so I can't say if this is true, or how often he did the song in his live shows, but I know he said around the time Elvis started to add "That's All Right" to his shows, that Roy started to add "Ooby Dooby" to his set list.

And you're right, it's not a bad song at all... It was a charting record, granted not top 40, but a modest charter nonetheless... I'd choose "Ooby Dooby" over his record "Chicken Hearted" any day...
