Bebop was only release as a B-side on various singles including the UK 12" single for Valotte, both 7" and 12" UK singles for Say You're Wrong, and the US 7" single for Jesse.

In Too Late For Goodbyes - The Julian Lennon Radio Special Julian states this "one is almost like a Soul Jackson song called "Be Bop" in fact. It has nothing to do with the song but it fitted the song when I was writing it, so I kept it anyways."

The Lyrics

 

Naah... Help Me Baby
You need me and I need you
We've been coming around together
And I saw you before you saw me
I've been moving around forever

'Cause I'm a good guy (good guy)
And all you have to do is talk to me

Walking down the street
and you say hello to me
I keep waving to you, while you pass by
I can see it in your eyes
That you like my strange disguise
But underneath my cover you're my lover

'Cause I'm a good guy (good guy)
And all you have to do is talk to me

Talk to me
Look at me
And talk to me
Look at me

You can say I showed you 'round
made a pass and played around
but I'll be telling you baby 'be clever'
We'll be drinking in the park, playing games until it's dark
and you'll be loving it baby, and I'll tell ya

'Cause I'm a good guy (good guy)
And all you have to do is talk to me

Sleeping at your place
Showing people what we mean
and she's the cutest thing you'll ever see she's just like me
Now she's growing up real strong
Shows you can't be too wrong
When you say the pretty baby's so clever

'Cause I'm a good guy (good guy)
and all you have to do is talk to me

The family's going good
Like you know just how it should
And everything's been working out real fine
Life's getting better
You can see that for yourself
So I can show you now just how to do it

'Cause I'm a good guy (good guy)
and all you have to do is talk to me

The hairs are getting grayer
Kind of slow and then fade away
But as long as we keep moving we'll be alright
Our pace is getting slower
We only stop when we fall over
but we're still running around just like our baby

Because I'm a good guy (good guy)
and all you've got to do is talk to me

Because I'm a good guy (good guy)
and all you've got to do is talk to me

The days go so fast
We've not got long to last
And we've had a good life that's how it's meant to be
And now God is taking over
And we're really getting closer
Let's hope that our whole life will flourish like a tree

I'm a good guy (good guy)
and all you've got to do is talk to me
