In old Savannah, I said, "Savannah"
The weather there is nice and warm
The climate's of the Southern brand
But here's somethin' I don't understand

They got 'em a gal there, a pretty, pretty gal there
Who's colder than an arctic storm
Got a heart made like a stone
Even ice men leave her alone

They call her, hard hearted Hannah
Vamp of Savannah, the meanest gal in town
Leather is tough but Hannah's heart is tougher
She's a gal that loves to see her men suffer

Tease 'em and thrill 'em to torture and kill 'em is her delight they say
Saw her at the seashore with a great big pan
There was Hannah pouring water on a drowning man
She's hard hearted Hannah, the Vamp of Savannah, ga

They call her hard hearted Hannah
Vamp of Savannah, the very meanest gal in town
You can talk about John Paul refrigerating mamas
She's the polar bear's pajamas

Tease 'em and thrill 'em, torture and kill 'em is her delight they say
An evening spent with Hannah on your knees
Is like traveling through Alaska in your bvd's
She's hard hearted Hannah, cold blooded Hanna
She's hard hearted Hannah, the Vamp of Savannah, ga
