About the Song
"Li'l Red Riding Hood" (aka "Little Red Riding Hood") was a 1966 song by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs. It was the group's second top-10 hit, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1966.[2] It was certified gold by the RIAA on August 11, 1966.[1] It also featured in the films Striking Distance with Bruce Willis in 1993,[3] and Wild Country in 2005.[4] The song is built around the Grimm Brothers' "Little Red Riding Hood" folk tale, adapted by ending before the grandmother makes her entrance, and explicitly using the ambiguity of modern English between "wolf", the carnivore, and "wolf", a man with concealed sexual intentions. The singer remarks on "what big eyes" and "what full lips" Red has, and eventually on "what a big heart" he himself has. An added element is that he says (presumably aside, to the song's audience) that he is disguised in a "sheep suit" until he can demonstrate his good intentions, but he seems to be having a hard time suppressing his wolf call in favor of the baa-ing of a sheep. One of its signature lines is "you're ev'rything that a big bad wolf could want".    Download this sheet!

Sheet music belonging to the instrument piano also consists of incomplete circles connected together by one or a collection of lines. Plus there are other symbols which will appear totally strange to you. So what are they all about and what do they mean? (More...)
