Facts:
  • According to some sources, Burton Cummings explained that the song began as a jam and was originally called "Clap For Napoleon." As they were appearing on NBC's "Midnight Special" a few times in 1973, they changed the lyric as a tribute to the show's host, the famous rock and roll disc jockey, the late Wolfman Jack (real name: Robert Smith). Wolfman Jack even did a couple of live dates with the group, adding his trademark "vocal" rap, which was usually done live by Cummings. The song peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in October, 1974. (gregwriter)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Clap for the Wolfman
    He gonna rate your record high
    Clap for the Wolfman
    You gonna dig him til the day you die

    Do Ron Ron and the Duke of Earl
    They were friend's of mine
    The highway's on my moonlight drive
    Snuggled in, said, 'Baby, just one kiss'
    She said, 'No, no, no'
    Romance ain't keepin' me alive
    I said, 'Hey babe, do you want to coo, coo, coo'
    She said 'uh, uh, uh'
    So I was left out in the cold
    I said, 'You're what I've been dreamin' of'
    She said, 'I don't want to know'
    (Wolfman Jack: 'Oh you know, she was diggin' the cat on the radio')

    Clap for the Wolfman
    He gonna rate your record high
    (WJ: 'Yes baby, I'm your doctor in love')
    Clap for the Wolfman
    You gonna dig him 'til the day you die
    (WJ: 'Everybody talkin' about the Wolfman's confidence of love')

    Seventy five, eighty miles an hour
    She hollers, 'Slow, slow, slow'
    'Baby I can stop right on a dime'
    I said, 'Hey baby, give me just one kiss'
    She said, 'No, no, no'
    But how was I to bide my time
    I said, 'Hey baby, do you want to coo, coo, coo'
    She said, 'uh, uh, uh'
    Said, 'I'm about to overload'
    I said, 'You're what I've been livin' for'
    She said, 'I don't want to know'
    (WJ: 'Oh, you thought she was digging you but she was digging me')

    Clap for the Wolfman
    He gonna rate your record high
    (WJ: 'As long as you got the curves baby, I got the angles')
    Clap for the Wolfman
    You gonna dig him 'til the day you die
    (WJ: 'It's all according to how your boogaloo situation stands, you understand')

    Clap for the Wolfman
    He gonna rate your record high
    (WJ: 'You ain't gonna get 'em, cuz I got 'em')
    Clap for the Wolfman
    You gonna dig him 'til the day you die
    (WJ: 'You might wanna try, but I'm gonna keep 'em')
    Clap for the Wolfman
    Clap for the Wolfman
    (WJ: 'And I got 'em all')
    Clap for the Wolfman
    (I B Emerson)
