Chris Kenner I Like it Like That

Chirs Kenner I Like it Like That

R&B

Ah, the sounds from New Orleans. The song, which was written by Chris Kenner and Allen Toussaint, went to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on the R&B Singles Chart in 1961. “I Like it Like That” sold more than one million copies and received an RIAA gold record. There were covers, among others, by The Dave Clark Five, The Nashville Teens, The Kingsmen, Brinsley Schwartz, and Loggins and Messina. The song is on the soundtrack to the 1987 Vietnam War film Full Metal Jacket.

Chris Kenner was also known for his song “Land of a Thousand Dances,’ which he recorded in 1963. It was covered notably by Wilson Pickett as well as Danny & the Memories, Thee Midniters, Cannibal and the Headhunters, and Ted Nugent.

 

Here are the lyrics to “I Like it Like That” by Chris Kenner:

Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
The name of the place is I like it like that

Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
The name of the place I like it like that

They got a little place a-down the track
The name of the place is I like it like that
Now you take Sally and I’ll take Sue
And we’re gonna rock away all of our blues

Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
The name of the place is I like it like that

Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
I will show you (come on let me show you where it’s at)
The name of the place I like it like that

The last time I was down there I lost my shoes
They had some cat shoutin’ the blues
The people was yellin’ and shoutin’ for more
And all they kept sayin’ was-a “go man, go”

Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
I said the name of the place is like it like that

Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
Come on (come on let me show you where it’s at)
The name of the place is I like it like that…
