The song's lyrics are widely attributed to Ronald Blackwell. There seems to be no controversy (although various titles are occasionally used) that one with a similar title was written and recorded in 1958 by the Big Bopper, and released as "Little Red Riding Hood" (with little spelled out) as the B-side of his second hit.
