Robert Weston Smith (21 januari 1938 – 1 juli 1995) was een zeer bekende Amerikaanse diskjockey uit de jaren 60 en 70 van de 20e eeuw en bekend onder zijn artiestennaam Wolfman Jack. Zeer karakteristiek was zijn doorleefd en krakend klinkende stem, compleet met bijna schreeuwende uithalen waarin een bepaald timbre zat dat niemand kon evenaren.

Todd Rundgren, Leon Russell en Freddie King schreven nummers over hem. De Canadese band The Stampeders vroeg Wolfman in 1975 om mee te doen aan hun cover van het Ray Charlesnummer Hit The Road Jack uit 1961, waarin te beluisteren is dat een man, Cornelius genaamd, die door zijn vriendin op straat is gezet, Wolfman tijdens zijn radio-uitzending opbelt om (tevergeefs) te vragen of hij bij hem kan komen logeren. Ook in de hit Clap For The Wolfman van de Guess Who uit 1974 was hij te horen.

Songtekst

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 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
