    Peepin' and hidin'
    Been told a long time ago

    I've been told
    Baby, you've been bold
    I won't be your fool no more

    Oh, big conniver
    Nothin' but a jive
    I done got hip to your jive

    Oh, big conniver
    Nothin' but a jive
    I done got hip to your jive

    Slippin' and slidin'

    Oh, Malinda
    She's a solid sender
    You know you better surrender

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyMy favorite Richard record, plus it had a great sax solo!!!
  • Anthony from CaliforniaThis song's lyrics are double entendre for a penis sliding in and out of a vagina - "slippin' and a-slidin, "peepin' and a-hidin." Use your imagination :)
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyAs already stated a duo named Jim and Monica charted with it; their covered version entered the Hot Top 100 on January 12th, 1964 for a one week stay at position #96.
  • Duke from Fresno, CaSlippin & Slidin was also a minor success by duo Jim & Monica.
