Tommy Roe Sheila

Tommy Roe Sheila

Pop Music

The song was written by Tommy Roe. In 1962 it was a #1 hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, in Australia, and in Canada. It went to #3 in the U.K. The influence of Buddy Holly is evident, with shades of “Peggy Sue.”

Tommy Roe, who was born in Atlanta, Georgia,  is a singer and songwriter and has achieved several RIAA gold records for his songs. He has teamed up for projects with Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison. One bit of trivia is that he appeared in an episode of the TV show Green Acres. Tommy Roe is seen as one of the archetypel bubblegum artists of the 1960s. He also had hits with “Everybody,” ” Sweet Pea,” “Dizzy,” and Jam Up and Jelly Tight.” He continued to tour and perform for many decades.

Here are the lyrics to “Sheila” by Tommy Roe:

“Sweet little Sheila, you’ll know her if you see her
Blue eyes and a ponytail
Her cheeks are rosy, she looks a little nosy
Man, this little girl is fine

Never knew a girl like-a little Sheila
Her name drives me insane
Sweet little girl, that’s my little Sheila
Man, this little girl is fine

Me and Sheila go for a ride
Oh oh oh oh, I feel all funny inside
Then little Sheila whispers in my ear
Oh oh oh oh, I love you Sheila dear

Sheila said she loved me, she said she’d never leave me
True love will never die
We’re so doggone happy just bein’ around together
Man, this little girl is fine

Never knew a girl like-a little Sheila
Her name drives me insane
Sweet little girl, that’s my little Sheila
Man, this little girl is fine

Me and Sheila go for a ride
Oh oh oh oh, I feel all funny inside
Then little Sheila whispers in my ear
Oh oh oh oh, I love you Sheila dear

Sheila said she loved me, she said she’d never leave me
True love will never die
We’re so doggone happy just bein’ around together
Man, this little girl is fine
Oh, this little girl is fine
Yeah, this little girl is fine
Oh, this little girl is fine”
