Lyrics of Golliwog

You're not the good kind, the soft and sweet kind
I don't think mom would like your smile.
The way my ears ring, the way my arms cling
I know that your kind drives me wild.

Golliwog,
Oooh the way you kiss is really slap-dash, Golliwog.
Love me, love me!
Fire, fire,
Something's burning, something's burning,
Something's burning, oooh, something's burning!

I know that you're a brute
Always raw and rude and crude,
But wow, your cheeky ways get me right in the mood!

Yeah, you do make me feel all right
So please just hold me, hold me tight,
You can stay here with me, you can stay here with me,
Tell me please that you'll stay all night.

You're not the true kind, the only-you kind
I guess my mom would say you're bad.
The way you make love, the way you take love
I know that your kind drives me mad.

Golliwog,
Oooh the way you kiss is really slap-dash, Golliwog.
Love me, love me!
Fire, fire,
Something's burning, something's burning,
Something's burning, oooh, something's burning!

I know that you're a brute
Always raw and rude and crude,
But wow, your cheeky ways get me right in the mood!

'Golliwog' ('Gulleplutt') was one of the first attempts by Agnetha Fältskog to enter the charts outside Sweden. The eight German-language music singles she released didn't enter the charts. But with 'Golliwog' the intention was that not only Germany but all of Europe would get to know Agnetha.

In addition, 'Golliwog' was recorded in English as the B side of the single called 'Here For Your Love' ('Tio Mil Kvar Till Korpilombolo'), at the marketing suggestion of Agnetha's record company, CBS Cupol. Agnetha had been against releasing English songs, and also lyricist Bosse Carlgren was not too keen on his English lyrics.

The 'Golliwog' single was not successful either in Sweden or in Europe, even though Agnetha was already known as a part of ABBA. In fact the German release stated 'Agnetha von ABBA' to increase the sales, but this didn't help the single.
