Dizzy, Miss Lizzy" is a rock and roll song written and recorded by Larry Williams in 1958. Although identified as a "genuine rock & roll classic", it had limited success on the record charts. Seven years later, the Beatles recorded the song and John Lennon performed it with the Plastic Ono Band in 1969. At the end of 1957, Williams scored with one of his biggest hits, "Bony Moronie".

John Lennon was a fan, and The Beatles and several other British Invasion groups recorded several of his songs.

Album: Here's Larry Williams, 1992. It's the early Specialty tracks, which grace this album, that established Larry Williams as one of the hottest rockers to emerge from the late '50s, influencing such major acts as The Beatles, who covered Slow Down, Dizzy Miss Lizzy and Bad Boy; and the Rolling Stones, who helped themselves to She Said Yeah.

As The Beatles reluctantly interrupt the filming for their second motion picture "Help!" to enter the recording studio to record two songs for the American market, they didn't think anything much would result from this. When putting together the sequence of tracks for their British soundtrack album for "Help!", they didn't wish to end the album with Paul's ultra-mellow "Yesterday. Therefore, they finished off side two with the polar opposite; a rousing-screaming rocker from their Cavern/Hamburg days, "Dizzy Miss Lizzy. New Orleans born Larry Williams was privileged to have three of his self-penned songs officially recorded and released by The Beatles, which were "Slow Down," "Bad Boy" and "Dizzy Miss Lizzy.
